    There are no aggressiveness levels for me to set in M:H, and I've got to walk the troops all over the frigging planet, probably took me 25 minutes, to find this schmuck and off him. Definitely not the taste you want to leave in my mouth the day before I'm writing your review.

    It’s flawed and it’s buggy, and there just isn’t enough to do in the game to make it fun.

    Having been developed by Check Six Games this time around (since Spyro's original developers, Insomniac, left to pursue other interests), Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly, complete with N64 graphics, Carrot Top-caliber annoying sounds, and gameplay that's more bland than a sandwich without mayonnaise, is quite simply craptacular.

    It’s like somebody at Wanadoo wondered just how little time they could put into a game and still release it, and Secret at Loch Ness is the result.

    I hope that Midway really delivers a top-shelf game next time around, because their first effort is mediocre.

    There is almost nothing good about the game, and, in fact, it’s one of the rare games I’ve played where I actually got mad at the ending. So if you notice some extra venom in this review, it’s because I’m writing it right after finishing the game.

    One of the worst real-time strategy games I’ve ever played.

    In the end, Terminator: Salvation won't have you screaming for salvation, but rather wishing you were terminated from playing this game. Wait for the next reboot if you're hoping for that perfect, all around Terminator game.

    I enjoyed the look and sounds of the game, but that's about it. No multiplayer, little action, all story. Read the novel, it's more exciting.

    This is simply "Links 2000" under a different name. Sure, it's a solid game of golf, but then again so were the previous editions. You're not going to find any new additions, no up-to-date golfing counterparts, nothing.

    While it stays true to the roots of the classic novel and original films, the game lacks creativity, particularly with respect to puzzles, visuals and combat. When all is said and done, Planet of the Apes simply isn’t very entertaining.

    It feels like a budget title, not a Call of Juarez game. If you're a fan of the series I suggest forgetting this game ever happened and start hoping this doesn't become the series' swan song. That'd be a shameful way for a franchise like this to go out.

    Interesting concept, poor execution. Unfinished even.

    Even younger gamers looking to tune in to the music rhythm genre for the first time will find it too discouraging.

    Poorly designed. The frustration brought on by the lack of lives, weak visual detail, spotty collision detection and general difficulty is just too much to overcome.

    A vapid title for me, ultimately devoid of any fun.

    If you're curious about trying out a hybrid JRPG/MMORPG, then try the first one out even though it's included here since it'll cost you a lot less and has a far easier learning curve for newcomers.

    One of those games that is just so bad you should never play it, even if somebody gives it to you for free.

    So don’t be fooled into thinking that Konung 2 might be worthwhile to purchase since it’s only $20. I got it for free, and I hated it. If you’re interested in this type of game, then I’d recommend "Prince of Qin" instead.

    Thor for the 360 and PS3 is a sub-par God of War clone that does a surface-level job of replicating what makes that kind of game work, while missing the point of what works on any kind of deeper level. If you like that style of game, play either that series or any other games like it that have been mentioned. The lack of polish here makes it impossible to recommend as a purchase at any price, although if you must rent it, go with the 360 version since it lacks a mandatory 3GB install. If the movie's fresh in your mind and you want a fun Thor game to play, try out the 8-bit throwback on Marvel's site, or use him in Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

    Outside of climbing up the leaderboards or finding every hidden item, there's little reason to return to the game once you've played through it once.

    The inability to emancipate the player and place them into vehicles, different scenery or at least let them switch between different turret positions is rather beyond me.

    It is difficult to say anything good about Homefront. It's a half-baked idea crammed into a half-baked game, and while I'll freely admit that a quasi-realistic military-style first-person shooter with a heavy focus on the multiplayer mode is not exactly my cup of tea, I've played enough of them at this point that I feel confident in saying when one has gone horribly, horribly wrong.

    Black Lion, I understand and partially sympathize with your desire to bring some fundamentals back to the shooter genre. I just didn't know you were going to be quite so literal and actually make a game that would have been bad even in 2004.
