    This Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition is not only the worst console port I've ever played (and I play most of them), it's also one of the worst designed. I mean literally, this game is one step above my character having "lives" and when I run out of those, I'm told to jam quarters into my PC to continue playing. If this is what constitutes a "good console RPG", then I'll sleep soundly at night with the knowledge that I'm not missing a damn thing by not owning a PlayStation 3. I guess I'm alone in understanding this, but supposed difficulty is not a substitute for intelligent design. Dark Souls proves that.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Ultimately, when compared to other city-building games, even the decade-old Simcity 4, Maxis set the bar low and failed to clear even that.

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

    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 the worst real-time strategy games I’ve ever played.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 46 Critic Score
    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.

    I was disappointed by the clunky combat, dreary color palette, and meh leveling options of 2013’s Mars: War Logs, and I remain doubly so by The Technomancer, a second entry in the Mars RPG universe also from Spiders Studio.

    A mess by almost any comparison. These aren’t tears of rapturous joy running down my cheeks – they are instead the expression of my realization that the Star Trek gaming curse has yet again resulted in a horrific shambling zombie monster of a Star Trek game.

    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.

    No doubt, everything works in Ninja Storm. I just find it too limited with only two buttons for attack, one for blocking and one for jumping. There aren't any significant combos to learn in the game.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 33 Critic Score
    It lacks entertainment, atmosphere, colourful visuals, solid voiceovers, challenging puzzles, a steady camera, good controls, and anything else a game should have. It's gar… gar… garbage.

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

    If I had to sum up The Devil’s Cartel in a few words, I’d say it’s all style and no substance. Whereas its predecessors at least tried to be mildly entertaining, this entry has no problem tossing waves of faceless goons at you until you either mow them all down and proceed to the next level or give up and play something else. With this game, I recommend choosing the latter.

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

    Trying to connect with another player caused my game to crash on numerous occasions and when I went to join a game on Mplayer, there was no one to be found. I guess I wasn't the only one having problems with this.

    For those who are interested, I found the fastest way to get through Daylight (and believe me that you want Daylight over as quickly as possible) is to light a flare and simply run through the levels.

    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.

    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.

    You know how some games are so bad, they’re actually fun to play? Aliens: Colonial Marines isn’t one of those games. It’s just bad.

    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.

    And so Brunswick Pro Bowling ends up being a gutter ball. It doesn't matter how realistic the ball and pin physics are, how authentic the Brunswick gear is, or how accurate the lane's oil patterns are, there's just no way to overlook the frustratingly inconsistent motion controls.

    This videogame is a soulless, shambling zombie wreck. It is rife with bad graphics, AI, gameplay, voicework, plot (if it can even be said to have a plot), and weapons.

    The bottom line is the more I played Mindjack, the more I wanted to stop playing Mindjack. I made it through to the end, but it wasn't without a lot of head-scratching, hair-pulling, and obscenity-laced tirades.

    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.

    If you have any respect for yourself but feel you must play this, at least wait until it's under ten bucks and nestled safely at the bottom of our local bargain bin.

    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.

    Pointless, worthless, lifeless, colorless, flavorless dregs from the very bottom of the gaming barrel. An idiotic, dull, awful, dreary waste of time and hard drive space.

    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.

    Freedom: First Resistance does absolutely everything wrong, from the generic key-hunting puzzles to the lifeless environments. For everyone’s sake, let’s hope this is the first and last resistance.

    It’s something you’ll play for a little while but you’ll soon realize that watching the real thing is far more exciting. It sounds better. It feels faster. And you’ll get to see the podium and hear the anthem of the victor’s nation.

    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.

    It is with a heavy heart that I tell you, dear reader, to avoid this game at all costs. It barely qualifies as the sum of the features it claims, and this port was given absolutely zero effort in making it functional for a console audience. Robbing a real “fun pimp” of thirty dollars will provide you with a more satisfying experience in survival horror than this thing will.

    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.

    Fugitive Hunter seems to utilize random nonsensical damage, instead of the “target specific” kind, and the game’s defamation of the law of physics and its shoddy collision detection makes it seem like you’re constantly trekking through Jello. All that and no multiplayer. Bummer.

    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.

    A stagnant pond full of crap-sucking carp that’ll have you reeling in one piece of garbage after another.

    AMY
    AMY has a reasonably decent premise and a really creepy opening sequence, but this just isn't a finished game. It's the kind of game that makes me wonder if the people who designed it were actually gamers themselves, and if so, if they don't enjoy fun for some reason. I really want to say nicer things about AMY than this, because survival horror badly needs a good shot in the arm from some upstart independent developer, but this is one of the worst games in the genre.

    It’s quite depressing since mixing The Apprentice with even the most run of the mill tycoon game would net you a decent product. Instead, we have something here that is amusing for maybe a few minutes and that’s only for Apprentice fans who have nothing much to do on a rerun night.
