    The video-game equivalent of fast food—quick, easy, and disposable. Its main problem is that poor game design choices.

    When met with the game's linear nature and over-reliance on quick-time events, these technical issues tear away at what could have been the perfect tribute to the original film.

    Although it comes wrapped in an attractive package, Monster Blaster just doesn't hold up when compared to other puzzle alternatives, even on iOS.

    A bit too tough for the Dora crowd, too immature for pre-teens, and not interesting enough for adults, Pucca's Kisses Game doesn't really have a built-in audience, despite having some unique gameplay elements.

    While the mini-games are cool, you will sadly spend most of your time fighting to control your drunken gun sight, and practice only yields marginal improvements.

    A frustrating and inconsistent mess that truly disappoints. By the time I reached the seventh episode, which degenerates into a needlessly painful time-sink grind to upgrade Edward with "spectral vision" points, the few things the game had done right had been virtually drowned in a murky sludge of ill-conceived and half-baked failures.

    Although Armageddon’s selection of slick, diabolical hardware is great, using it turns into a fumbling experience. Between multiple foes attacking in every direction and the unintuitive button setup, switching between your weapons is a chore.

    I didn't find myself particularly enthralled with Laevatein -- the dull as dirt presentation did little to augment a game system I often found flawed.

    Most should pass on this one, but if your swimsuit area is specifically turned on by the scantily-clad ladies of DoA, then Paradise's brand of portable soft-porn may just do it for you.

    Regretfully, Army Men RTS’s cleverly conceived combat units and resource system are quickly overrun by deadlier forces: lackluster controls and frustrating gameplay.

    The mediocre graphics do an adequate job of rendering believable jungle environments, but the unattractive artistic style tends to jar with the hardboiled atmosphere. [Dec 2004, p.114]

    The total lack of a cluttered HUD, the animation, and the graphic detail are all good points, but lazy mistakes and no palpable sense of fear make Extermination more annoying than alarming.

    In the end, fans of Tekken will simply ask, "Why?" [Apr 2005, p.80]

    Greg Hastings Paintball 2 is made for a very specific clientele. But because the video game lacks the excitement of the real thing, it does little to expand interest for the sport outside of its core demographic. If you're someone who owns your own gear and is really into paintball, you'll appreciate having a game dedicated to your sport. Everyone else, however, should save their $20 for something else.

    Fans of the Battle Network series will delight in the further adventures of Lan and Mega Man, but everyone else is warned to stay clear. [Aug 2004, p.78]

    An old-skool movie-based game in the worst way, taking you back to the days when a Hollywood license was a recipe for a giant ball of suck.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It's barely better than mediocre, and just another game that should be heading to the used shelf in record time. Pick it up on the cheap for a young sibling/nephew/cousin if you do buy it at all.

    This is one of those “look at what we can do with water physics” games, and in that regard, it’s cool—but the standard mission-based gameplay isn’t nearly as deep as the ocean it takes place on.

    This tribal take on shoot-em-ups seems like it would be pretty refreshing, but some basic flaws keep this from being a prime time-waster.

    I got tired of the one-button combat almost immediately, but I could appreciate the 8-bit versions of the Linkin Park "classics.

    A landmark in programming incompetence. Exclusive or not, it's a bigger embarrassment than any retro port could have been.

    There's just nothing to hold your interest over the long haul and while roaming around with some friends helps, it just isn't entertaining enough for me to recommend it to anyone, not even those who love fairy tales and platform titles.

    If monotonous gaming and skimpy Pokemon action aren't your thing, then this is one mystery that's best left unsolved.

    Even taking the gameplay at face value, there are still flaws like horrendous enemy A.I. and a severely limited set of offensive and defensive moves.

    It's shallower than the shallow end of a kiddie pool during a drought, and dammit, it's such a disappointment, because the series has delivered compelling storylines and settings, if nothing else, up to this point.

    Diner Dash has always been a fun and frantic game, but the rough graphics, lack of online players and steep price tag makes this port hard to recommend.

    Sonic Riders certainly gives fans the velocity they've been craving, but isn't tightly tuned enough to be much more than an agreeable party game.

    In the end, it often comes down to understanding the solution but not being able to feasibly execute it. Add these difficulties to a rather repetitive five-hour adventure, and the game becomes more of a chore than an adventure.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It's an incredibly original and ambitious project, but the weight of its problems, both old and new, keep it from being much more than a nostalgic love letter addressed to diehard series fans.
