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

    Earlier this year, I was pleasantly surprised by NERF: N-Strike Elite – a far better on-rails shooter than Cybertron Adventures is. And given that the Wii has so many other on-rails shooters like Dead Space Extraction and Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, that there is no reason to waste your time and money on Transformers: Cybertron Adventures.

    Just too shallow and way too easy to challenge or entertain anyone of any age for any substantial period of time. Fans of the show may want to rent for a day but all others can simply stay away.

    If you play Street Supremacy for longer than an hour then you must really be hurting for entertainment. The Team Battle career mode is a cool concept but the poor controls and dismal racing action won’t support it.

    Budget games-blech.

    As a game, the design is weak with no story or motivation leaving only a barebones fighter. When you tack on the extremely poor fighting engine and twitchy graphics the game sinks further into mediocrity.

    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.

    For the love of everything that you hold dear about your children do not buy them this for their GBA if they like Yu-Gi-Oh. Buy them cards instead, at least they’ll get half way decent art work and will have other kids to play with.

    Wacky Races: Crash & Dash is not very well put together and suffers from lackluster gameplay.

    Rather than waste $20 on Chicken Hunter, why not spend the money on a bucket of KFC and spend an evening playing free flash games on your PC – I guarantee you will have a lot more fun.

    Anyone older than 3 that picks this game up for themselves should really have their head examined. The reason is simple: Animaniacs is a child’s game through and through, but the gameplay is way too frustrating for the intended audience.

    I was completely disappointed. It tries to be exactly like Mario Kart, but it doesn’t even come close to that level of enjoyment. This genre does not need any more lame imitators. It needs innovators.

    You do nothing else while playing but hit the start and end button, occasionally buy things for your store and manage employees.

    It has some redeeming qualities which are massively out weighed by its shortcomings. If you see this game for $5 it might be worth the effort to pick it up but don’t say I didn’t warn you.

    I honestly have to say that I had fun with this game just because the gameplay is so outrageously bad.

    Legend of the Dragon is a disappointment for a fighting game. There is a general lack of anything that stands out to make it worth paying attention to or purchasing.

    If the game developers had improved the overall graphics, added multiplayer or online multiplayer game modes, AND rewrote the entire script, then I might suggest renting this game. Sadly though, I must tell you to avoid it at all costs.

    A waste of time. The gameplay is terrible and I saw better graphics on video games two years ago. I can’t understand all the uproar this game caused because the game in itself is not worth bothering with.

    We all know that sex sells, especially when it comes to nerdy, dateless, video gamers. But when you use sex to sell a totally broken and dysfunctional game built on a sport that I truly love, well, you have gone too far.

    Blackwater is a definite step in the right direction to providing the motion-based FPS like the one promised when Microsoft announced their Kinect camera peripheral. But between the controversial backstory, the dicey subject matter, the terrible presentation, and the sketchy controls, it is a game that is better left on the shelf. If you want a better Kinect shooter experience, check out Gunstringer.

    As the glut of new consumers begins to wise up to the ways of the gaming world and the profit potential for a critically panned game starts dropping, such games will likely fade out a little bit. For now, keep checking reviews and making informed decisions about the games you purchase--or you may well end up throwing away $30.00 of hard-earned money on a game like Wonder World Amusement Park, and that would be a shame.

    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.

    The execution however was so deeply flawed I don’t know why it even shipped.

    If you love giant bugs and the whole saving the damsel in distress and don't mind shoddy graphics, dismal sound, and repetitive gameplay, give it a shot. But you've been warned.

    The PSP has been floundering as a system for years now and its uninspired games like these that will contribute to its ultimate demise. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is a great movie and a fun game on the consoles but avoid this PSP abomination at all costs.

    The graphics are bad, the sound is marginal at best, and worst of all, the gameplay doesn’t feel like Texas Hold ‘Em because of the poor AI.

    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 coolest thing about Damnation is the cover art, and you can enjoy that as you watch this game go from the shelf to the bargain bin in record time, and even then I can’t recommend a purchase or even a rental.

    Sadly, the sound is the best part of Air Conflicts, but who really cares about sound when the game looks below average and is virtually unplayable.
