    Due to the smaller size of the GBA some games just don't work on the system, Shrek SuperSlam is one of them.

    Star Trek: Conquest was way too rushed and seems for all practical purposes a quick cash in on the intense popularity of the Wii console at the time this was being made.

    The story is there but the execution of the game is a severe let down, Turning Point Fall of Liberty could have been a great game but with so many other FPS games setting such high standards it is left behind.

    The gameplay is mediocre at best and the camera is far from acceptable. The graphics are choppy and the animation lags. Although the Escape 2 Africa lacks quality it can provided a minor distraction while on a lunch break or between classes.

    The main idea I want you all to take away from this review is that Arkadian Warriors is not really an RPG. A more accurate genre description would be “Almost-2D side-scrolling hack and slash.” If that sounds like fun to you, knock yourself out. I think I will use my $10 to help pay for another month of WoW.

    Traveller’s Tales should have left Super Monkey Ball as a puzzle game, instead of trying to turn it into an adventure platformer.

    I'm a big Dracula fan, but I'm not a fan of Dracula: The Last Sanctuary HD. The iPad is capable of so much more than delivering a game I could have played 20 years ago on my PC. And when your gameplay is restricted by preset movement coordinates and spin-and-search gameplay mechanics I can't help but feel like I'm being led around an interactive storybook, and sadly, the story just isn't worth the effort. There are dozens of games out there just like this any most are better.

    The sound effects and voice acting (though B-rated in and of itself) add a level of immersion to the game that, without it, would have been an utter failure. Even with them, though, the game only becomes passable.

    When a game can’t hold your attention past the tutorial you should probably leave it on the shelf.

    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.

    Gave me a negative vibe with the way it portrayed people of minority races and foreign cultures and the condescending manner in which the badass cop goes about his business. We have enough fear and hatred in this world already, we don’t need to breed more.

    If you are looking to get an ultraviolent fairy tale fix, you would be better off to use that $30 to download Castle Crashers and buy a DVD of Shrek II.

    Short, repetitive, and boring.

    The control scheme falls rather flat, the documentation on actually playing the games can be spotty and the overall presentation of the whole thing is quite underwhelming.

    Budget games-blech.

    It was a good idea that was sloppily put together, and the result is a repetitive, overly simple game that doesn't have a whole lot to offer.

    The whole time I was playing this game I was thinking of ways to destroy it.

    Although Dr. Knizia has done a good job with his company inventing board games and such this was nothing more than a waste of time.

    I really think there is a market for old school strategy games with modern graphics, but these games still have to emphasize fun over tedium. If you’re going to make a game about great historical warriors and legendary battles, make sure your players can quickly join the thick of the fight.

    All in all, I probably would have liked Ready 2 Rumble Revolution a whole lot better had the game featured button-based controls. I’m all for reminiscing on the past, but this is one remake that did not benefit from its Wii makeover.

    And while the FMV movies are definitely worth checking out – if only to laugh at their ridiculousness – it is not worth plunking down $40 for.

    X-Men: Destiny is a budget-priced offering wrapped in a full-priced package. By no means is it worth the $49.99 MSRP – which is a real shame given the excellent source material Silicon Nights had to work with.

    The game only takes six hours to beat but yet it costs nearly 60 dollars. I’ll let you do the math.

    While Boogie seems like a good idea on the surface, it suffers from poorly executed gaming mechanics and too many bells and whistles without much substance.

    Rotastic is simply not worth the 800 Microsoft points it'd take you to buy it. With graphics, presentation, and gameplay comparable to a $1 game on a mobile phone, and with some of the most amazing, creative, beautiful games ever to grace the Xbox Live Marketplace available for 1200 points, there's no way this game is possibly worth what they're charging.

    I am sure the game will sell well based on game recognition alone, but as it stands Deadliest Catch nowhere near captures the excitement or intensity of the Discovery Channel series.

    If you love Sudoku then this is the game for you, but I really don’t see why you wouldn’t go out and buy a Sudoku book ($3.00) and a pencil ($0.25) and save yourself some money.

    It's hard for me to completely hate You Are Empty, but then again I'm a sucker for those really bad horror movies the Sci Fi Channel churns out on a weekly basis.

    Due to bad camera, bad AI, bad combat, and bad dialogue, this game just isn't much fun to play.

    A decent enough game for short bouts of zombie slaying, but at its brief length, players may want to wait until it shows up in their local bargain bin, or simply save your money and blow some quarters on a true light gun game.
