    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 really like the show, and can deal with plenty of bugs and broken gameplay you may find Law & Order: Criminal Intent enjoyable. I doubt it, but anything is possible.

    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.

    People who just really dig dragons might be able to endure the interface issues, but for most of the rest of us, this one should be passed up for better games.

    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.

    If you favor frustration over fun then you might enjoy this game, but bring along lots of lube because this game is going to screw you more than an alien anal probe.

    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.

    What we get is a boring cartoon button masher which quite honestly should have come out on Xbox Live instead of a $50 disc.

    Ordinarily I like what Telltale Games puts together, but this just looks like a slap-dash excuse to cash in on a television property.

    Strip away the gimmick and you are left with a generic arcade racer with a poor physics model and terribly flawed trick system.

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

    If you enjoy flailing your arms around aimlessly for hours, then this Wii game is for you.

    I have no patience for a game that has as many bugs as this one does. There’s no excuse for it except laziness or just a sheer contempt of the game playing public.

    The Nintendo DS is home to many great games, and its dual screen would seem a perfect fit for an interactive novel. Sadly, Again swings and misses at every opportunity with a poor story, laughable dialogue, clumsy puzzles, and pacing so slow you'll doze off in the middle of a conversation.

    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.

    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.

    They are really scraping the bottom of the barrel now. Is it possible for a game to immediately qualify for Microsoft’s new “delisting” policy?

    The only positive thing I can say about the game is that the designers at least nailed the look and feel of the show, but how hard was that when you have all the artists, and actors?

    This would make for an okay budget title, but at a $40 price tag, it's a complete rip-off. Unless you're a die-hard puzzle fan who happens to spot this in a bargain bin, Mind Gym 3D isn't worth it.

    Camping Mama's not a terrible game, and might make for a fun distraction for kids on the road, but the lack of replay value, simplistic minigames, and the animals dragging down the exploration make it hard to recommend.

    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.

    At the end of the day, Confrontation just isn't a very good game.

    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.

    My final thought on Bubble Bobble Double Shot is that it is not worth the investment. It's not really that fun.

    I feel sort of bad ripping this game so badly, but I went into it really hoping to be blown away, and came away feeling like I, and anyone else unfortunate enough to have fallen for their ruse, had been duped.

    While Vampire Moon ends up with good presentation and some clever min-games, the puzzles and length of the game weigh it down.

    I can sum up Top Gun with a single word. "Embarrassing". "Unnecessary" also works. We don't need this game.

    Don’t even bother to get this, the average rating for this game is above 50 percent from all the reviews and mine won’t make it any better. The game is not really up to a standard that would make it playable unless you just don’t care much about graphics.

    After a decade of jumping on arrows, shaking maracas, and pointing out grooves onscreen, I think I am finally burned out on dance games. I had hopes that Just Dance might help revive my interest in the genre, but sadly it only made things worse. Just Dance just isn’t that great of a game, period.
