    The sixty minutes it takes to finish the five short levels isn’t worth the investment.

    Really the game's major downfall is the clunky controls which make navigating the grid an exercise in frustration and all but cripples the fast-paced gameplay of the board game.

    About as much fun as playing in traffic. Avoid this game like a speed trap.

    While the game packs some potential, the constant barrage of technical glitches renders it all but unplayable and leave it feeling like an unfinished work that was rushed to the shelves a month or two too soon.

    The uninspired music, the trite voice acting, the horrible gameplay, and the lack of challenge makes this one of the worst titles in the Ninja Turtle series.

    Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Tag Force 2 is a complex game for the Yu-Gi-Oh! battles and an interesting way to go around and collect and trade the cards you need. But the storyline is pretty incidental to the game and how you play.

    This game sucks, but it sucks like being addicted to heroin sucks. Once you take that first hit you can't help but want another. So try to stay away from it, because otherwise you'll end up having to explain those Ashlee Simpson CDs.

    Adults will want something that feels less childish to play, and kids will want a game that is less demanding in terms of micro-management.

    A decent game. It has several features and modes that I enjoyed. I particularly liked the soundtrack and the sound effects. I did like the Shipyard the most out of the entire game. Sadly the voice acting could have be a LOT better.

    And while Sony does take an interesting new approach to the basketball genre, I simply cannot recommend NBA 07 at full retail price.

    If you really feel like inflicting some permanent damage on an unsuspecting 5 year old then by all means pick this title up. Otherwise, just put in LittleBigPlanet and be considered the cool adult in the room.

    Considering the relatively short gameplay length (the entire storyline can be completed in a single sitting), and the frustrating controls – there’s little reason any seasoned gamer would want to go through all of the trouble.

    This was doomed from the beginning. I played it with an open mind though and found some enjoyment out of collecting cards and managing my decks. Once the battles started all that enjoyment went away I went back to disliking card games.

    While this would have been the best Warriors game to date, the frame-rate issue and other technical problems really eliminate it from contention. Hopefully KOEI will patch this game to make it more playable, but with their obvious disregard for their fan-base I doubt it.

    A nice visual and audible replication of the anime, but it still lacks the in-depth story of a true anime.

    In summary, I'd say the biggest weakness with 1914 Shells of Fury is the feeling that you have little control over what happens.

    Time Crisis: Razing Storm is pretty lame, which is sad because this franchise is the cornerstone of light-gun gaming and Sony really has the tech available to make it work. Namco really dropped the ball on this release.

    With the limited scope in gameplay, primitive graphics, and repetitive comments from the judges, this is a game best left for the bargain bin, a weekend rental, or perhaps just skip it altogether.

    Luxor: Pharaoh’s Challenge is a casual puzzle game that could be effectively played in about ten minutes or a little more. If you seek the thrill of beating a game and want to see more and more of those little stubborn beetles squished than by all means go ahead and purchase this but wait till the price goes down.

    If you want something to entertain your children on a long drive to grandma's house, try having them watch a movie. That might actually keep them occupied longer than The Incredibles: Rise of the Underminer would.

    WALL-E is a very repetitive platform game that does not make for a good one on the Wii system with its inherent lack of camera control and just repetitive puzzles.

    Jimmie Johnson's Anything With An Engine is the complete definition of a lackluster experience.

    Too bad a game this boring and frustrating ever saw the light of day.

    It’s games like Football Mogul 2007 that clearly show the differences between the nerds in the high school chess club and the macho football players and why those two groups should never intertwine.

    While I do appreciate some of the more conceptual features of Ancient Shadow, the control scheme left me frustrated to the point where the game became more a lesson in aggravation than it was the nostalgic hop back to my childhood I was expecting.

    The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon may have seen its better days but this game has about as much appeal as playing some of those older games from days gone by. With such a lack of creativity and new gameplay the game does not make for much fun and the PlayStation 2 version is no different than the PS3 version.

    This game probably had promise but turned out to be your standard first person shooter with the addition of some popular rap music thrown in.

    I found the Mushroom Men: Rise of the Fungi for the Nintendo DS a slightly below average action game that just had too many small problems adding up to a not fun game.

    The game sucks you in with some deceptively clever and cryptic gameplay, but around the two-hour mark you’ll quickly realize you have tapped this game for what little fun it has to offer and there is nothing left.

    If it were not for having to spend so much of your valuable time doing everything for the other three people you’re saddled with Lost in Blue 3 could have been good. As it is Lost in Blue 3 is a very acquired taste and I’m not talking fancy recipes.
