    Were it not for the utter lack of care that went into fixing the numerous issues here, Brave: A Warrior’s Tale would be easy to recommend for the younger set that have yet to discover Mario or Zelda. As it stands, this is a decent game that seems like the developers gave up on before it was officially completed.

    Across the board, NBA Live 09 All Play is a poor game that will disappoint any Wii Basketball fans. I will give them credit on using the Wii remote some-what effectively, even with the poor use of it for free throws, but it just does not offer enough value for basketball fans to want to spend money.

    Gulti know how to design a fast and exciting shooter, that’s clear. However, the flaws here tend to outshine any glimmer of greatness 0 Day Attack on Earth may have had.

    On paper, "Again" could have been something so much more but in the end, it ends up being nothing more than a boring game that doesn't do enough to hold your interest.

    Even though it was given a resolution increase, you still can't play the game widescreen, and porting the 10 year old graphics and physics engine doesn't make it better.

    And the issues with Bloodstone reach further than just a hard to grasp plot. Both the driving and the shooting suffer from a distinct lack of polish.

    Unfortunately, Blood Drive is both out of date and has already been done, only better. Sure, there are zombies in it, but zombies don't always equate a great game.

    Naruto Path of the Ninja 2 is only for fans of the Naruto universe and not for general Role Playing Game fans as this game was made for people who enjoy the universe only. Naruto Fan – Rental, Everyone Else – Skip.

    Alas if you are expecting a World War II version of H.A.W.X. or even just a good action flight sim to play on your PSP you are out of luck. With almost everything in the game so poorly designed and implemented I was left wondering how the game was published in this sorry state. Not a rental and certainly not a buy, just stay away from this and keep walking.

    Any gamer over the age of 15 will be sorely disappointed with ugly visuals, bland gameplay, and a confusing story.

    Sadly, it seems that Sony hasn’t learned their lesson with Jeopardy. Wheel of Fortune is plagued by many of the same problems and I get the feeling the game was rushed. The game could have had great potential if it wasn’t so hard to invite friends into a game and the Multiplayer actually worked. At a price tag of 15 dollars, it’s quite steep for a game that feels like it was thrown together at the last minute.

    Essentially, this game is simply Koei offering a great deal of fan service to it’s loyal followers, and for those people, this game will certainly deliver what they expect. For everyone else, however, there’s nothing here but a boring hack ’n’ slash with some horrible voice acting and a horse racing minigame.

    Your enjoyment of Heavy Fire: Afghanistan will be directly proportional to your expectations. There is absolutely nothing that is exceptional about it, which, in my opinion, is just fine as the cost mitigates the quality. It functions as it should, and as long as you don't walk in expecting Call of Duty, your feelings won't be hurt. Much.

    There's no way anyone should spend any kind of money, or even waste bandwidth to download the demo, for this absolute load of disappointment.

    This is only the type of game worth playing if you have plenty of friends who also own it. For single player gamers it is a bust and for random pick up multiplayer matches they are not that well done. Pass on it.

    It still has some elements that make it slightly enjoyable, but with the wealth of other experiences on XBLA, it's really hard to justify investing your hard earned Microsoft Points in a second hand toy.

    Playing The Price Is Right in real-life might be really fun and compelling but the fun didn’t make it to the DS version, at all.

    In truth, there is absolutely nothing good about Revenge of the Fallen on the Wii. From the horrible graphics, sound, controls, camera and value I could not find a single meaningful positive thing to say about this game. This is yet another poorly made videogame adaptation that should have never been made.

    This PS2 version is horrendous, shameful and simply an insult to anyone who buys this game, especially for those who have been following the series for the past four years.

    If you enjoy RTS games and realize this is an indie title that has brought a new gameplay style to the table you possibly could enjoy it, but this is also the type of game that requires you to be forgiving for design choices, the campaign and its lack of modern looking graphics.

    If you have the option, check out the PS3/360 versions of the game, as it’s clear that’s where the game was meant to be played. All Wii users are getting is poor controls, bad graphics and what may be the worst audio found in any racer to date.

    What else can I say about The Black Eyed Peas Experience for the Wii other than it's a huge missed opportunity?

    Even with fairly long Career mode and single console Multiplayer option, Arcade Darts feels too cheap for any real enjoyment. Those who already enjoy playing Darts will rather play the real-life version. At the same time, those who are unfamiliar with the sport would be better off simply watching others play the real thing then trying to enjoy this poorly implemented iteration.

    Honestly there is zero value in this game and in the end I would recommend playing one of the other far superior Ratchet and Clank games or mow the lawn.

    Cabela’s Dangerous Hunts 2009 is a weak game from start to finish, with very few redeeming qualities. The poor gameplay even has the ability to leave you frustrated and tempted to turn your console off. If you’re a big hunter, or enjoyed the past offerings from Cabela’s and Activision, then you might consider trying it. CDH 2009 is a rental at best.

    Mahjong has been strangely missing from the XBLA. Unfortunately, FunTown Mahjong is simply not good enough to fill that niche. Its sloppy presentation is its ultimate downfall, from the terrible tutorial to the awful audio-visual.
