    After a fun setup and character introduction, the game degenerates into one long, flat repetition of horizontal sweeps and annoying bosses.

    If you can't get enough of these types of adventure games, well, you're in luck. Sacred Rings delivers the age-old formula that began with Myst, once again. If you're looking for innovation in the world of action adventure games, you're out of luck with Sacred Rings.

    Ultimately, this game is an attempt by an indie company to make a good-looking, story-driven action arcade game. Bottom line, if you're looking for a really dynamic, fast-paced combat game, you'll want to consider looking somewhere else. If you're interested in seeing what an indie developer can do with a genre that hasn't really been tapped yet, then feel free to check it out. This game is different from your usual shooter, attempting to add depth (wow...bad pun?) to a possibly worn-out style of game. Did they succeed? Not really. I feel bad, because I wanted to like this game, but it's really just a beat up car with a nice paint job.

    This is a third-party game with not very high aspirations. Don’t let the “Wing Series” emblem on the cover fool you into thinking that it is official or historically accurate or anything of the sort.

    Without a good story, interesting characters, a good design or enveloping world, Romancing Saga fails as an RPG.

    NFL Tour is all fluff and no substance.

    The levels that had the most polish and the enemies that went along with them were on display at E3 a year ago. Everything else is not nearly so well rendered or animated.

    I loved this game on the Xbox but this is totally unacceptable and an excercise in extreme and total frustration. Unless you are a Zen master avoid this game like the proverbial plague.

    For a game that began life as a gritty and realistic gladiatorial combat game, I was sad to discover that the process of watering down the content to a more family-friendly level has also diluted the entertainment potential of this title, especially since so many fighting games do wonders with a Teen rating and similarly outrageous characters.

    The game is so cliché ridden that it is not even funny like Doc’s snarl and eye patch or the theme music you have heard in about every western on TV or at the movies.

    If you have the patience of a Buddhist monk then give Legend a shot, otherwise avoid this annoying title or you might just hit someone or something important when you throw your DS across the room in frustration.

    I was really looking forward to Wheels of Destruction: World Tour, but with no real story or campaign mode for offline play, and not enough competition to fuel the laggy and limited online modes, this game is in dire need of a complete overhaul. In a world where Twisted Metal exists; this game doesn't stand a chance.

    There is a fun and compelling multiplayer game lurking beneath the mindless combat and level grinding that boasts a few subtle nods toward Diablo, but you don’t want to play this alone and you don’t want to have four people paying full price for what is arguably a budget-quality title.

    With normal graphics, background music that tends to be forgotten, and low replay-ability, Geist is better off on the store shelves than in your Gamecube, at least until it hits the bargain bins.

    So in the end C.O.R.E. is decent. If the controls scheme was better it would have been a lot more enjoyable. For the most part it is a system of trial and error, as I became Swiss cheese for more times that I can remember.

    Underdone graphics and sound that does everything except what it should dampen the already uninspired, copycat gameplay.

    Realistically this game's primary audience is for the younger gamers, but even adults could find some fun here if they look hard. The crashing problems really detracted from the game, though, and for that I can't really make a strong recommendation for this title.

    I think this game is a great family game. However, this game only took me about 45 minutes to complete. A young child with some gaming skill would probably have this game beat with an hour and a half.

    The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragons is an average game but there is just too much that could have been better in the main gameplay for a better score.

    The result for the end user however is a mixture of frustration and bemusement, but even during its most redundant moments, one can sense brimming potential in this game, and it would not be too far fetched to imagine a whole new franchise based upon Nick Delios mystery adventures.

    If you want a decent space sim with some strategy, I would go with "X2: The Threat." Universal Combat, as a whole, is not worth the effort it demands.

    Kung Fu Panda: Legendary Warriors, for all of the charm of the movie, is a shoddily assembled game on the Wii.

    Brigade E5 has the biggest choice of weapons and equipment I have seen in any video game and it is all usable. That in itself says a lot toward the game and its potential even though it does have some larger problems.

    A few months ago, the table poker video game was a novelty, but as more and more of these games hit the shelves, the quicker the novelty wears off.

    Atelier Iris 2 just goes to show that RPG gamers are going to have to become a little more discerning with what they buy. Either that, or be happy with the occasional turd.

    The ambience and Burton-esque feel of the game is present and well accounted for in the music, storyline, and character voices. In fact, it’d be good enough to make another film out of it all. Too bad you’re supposed to play it rather than watch it.

    If there's any real fault of Crime Lab, it's that it doesn't do anything particularly new or interesting. It's a well-crafted game that anyone looking the pass the time on a bus ride or a lunch break could have a grand old time with, but it does little to tantalize the senses of capture the imagination.

    Planet Minigolf, at least in its current form, is a huge failure and epic disappointment for me. I've been counting the days till its release since it was first announced, and now I am counting the days until it is patched so I can actually play it.

    Just a sub par first person shooter with a few good attributes.

    Yu-Gi-Oh GX: The Beginning of Destiny is another generic Yu-Gi-Oh game with two major sections of gameplay that really do not blend to make a decent game.
