    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.

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

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

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

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

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
