    In 2010, Guitar Hero: Van Halen should have never been released in stores at full price. It's absurd. We'd rather applaud you to wait for the release of Guitar Hero 6, since Guitar Hero Van Halen has the same lack of content as it has lack of love for our frettapping guitar legend. Or as Eddie would probably put it: Aint Talkin' Bout Love.

    Unfortunately Ninja Reflex consists of only six minigames. Although the minigames have a unique concept, it becomes quite frustrating to play the same minigames over and over again. The lack of variation will make sure everyone will put this game in the closet after an hour of playing.

    If you want to get irritated by a game, Tron: Evolution is the one for you. The sluggish controls ruin the experience and the story doesn't make up for it at all. The beautiful looking world can't save the game from being anything more than a cheap marketing tool for Disney.

    The first Still Life was a breath of fresh air in the old adventure genre, but the second game is a mess. The story has no tension, puzzles are confusing, the menus are disorienting and the game suffers from bad animation and terrible voice acting.

    The idea behind Eat Lead sounds more than fine and the humor and self-mockery in the game should be an example for other developers. For the rest there is little to be proud of. Return to sender.

    There's a nice idea hidden somewhere in Ridge Race for the Vita, but it just doesn't come out of its shell. The focus lays on online races, and not even very expansive. Just being able to have a good race has been overlooked with this racer.

    Shrek: Forever After is a mediocre licensed title which tries to distinguish itself with cooperative play, but does not succeed to do that in an interesting way.

    Had the Playstation 3 version of Lost Planet been released as a launch game of the console, it would probably have gotten less critisism. In the meantime many better games have passed it by, which makes this one just another shooter. No one will get sleepless nights from this title.

    Prison Break is a disappointment on all fronts. The fighting system has been badly implanted and the presentation is lacklustre. The only redeeming features are the sneaking around and the development of the plot, but it's not enough to keep this game from falling flat on it's face. Someone throw the keys away.

    Naruto: Ninja Destiny II is just like its predecessor: A poor fighting game. Again, the combat system is to simplistic, the available game modes pretty pathetic and on top of that it's a disgrace to the franchise. So, if you ever get your hands on this game, just throw it as far away as possible. Even if you're fond of yellow spiked hair and bright colored pajamas.

    Star Wars: The Force Unleashed could have been a great game, however it doesn't live up to its premise. The story and physics give a new dimension to the Star Wars franchise, but the countless technical glitches and shallow gameplay make this game a huge diasppointment that's not worth your money.

    Deadfall Adventures is an uninterrupted stream of clichés, awful cutscenes, mindless shooting and a decent puzzle here and there. Whoever was hoping for Uncharted on the PC is better off buying a PlayStation with Drake's adventures. It might be a bit more expensive, but much, much better.

    Dead to Rights: Retribution might not be particularly bad in a certain aspect, but it’s so mediocre and uninspired that there is no valid reason to spend your time on it.

    Percy Jackson & The Lightning Thief feels mediocre in every way. The lacklustre presentation fails to create any real connection to the story, the solid fighting system is only entertaining for the first couple of hours and the game is downright easy. You can’t shake the idea you should rather read the book.

    3 on 3 NHL Arcade is not a very bad game, but lacks some fundamental gameplay elements. The controls are, in combination with the specific type of gameplay, far from practical. On top of that, the idea of being a funny game never quite makes it with the decent look. What remains is the question: What did EA Canada had in mind when they made this game? Whatever the answer may be, it won't be enough to salvage this title.

    Whenever you’ve seen everything there is to see in a game in under half an hour, usually there’ll be few reasons to return to it. Dollar Dash is one of those games. With an emphasis on online gameplay and playing with friends on a couch, it loses all of its appeal when someone gets near. Playing bankrobber has never been this mediocre.

    Pretty sweet, using the camera in the brand new DSi for a bunch of minigames. Too bad that number of minigames involved is so few that you can hardly call it a game. And with a price tag of 500 points, the only thing we can cheer about is the idea of doing something new.

    Again Sega doesn't seem to realise what made the old Sonic games so much fun. By wielding a sword, the game loses a lot of speed and the choice to let Sonic play short and meaningless missions doesn't fit the franchise. Even Sonic fans will have a hard time liking this game. It seems that Sonic blew his changes on the Wii.

    Most race fans won't enjoy themselves much by playing this game. The controls of the Vehicles in Off Road are good, but the races are simply too boring to keep playing.

    Universe at War: Earth Assault is a bad game, just as simple as that. The controls work, but the framerate and camera ruin the party. So again we keep waiting for a good strategy game on the console.

    A breakdancing rhythm game without any gimmick to make it stand out from the Guitar Heroes and Rock Bands of this generation. The strange thing is, the button presses you have to perform are not in line with the rhythm at all! A low difficulty, even lower satisfaction level. Do yourself a favor and let this one pass.

    The MMO Earthrise is a science fiction-MMO with an emphasis on fights amongst players. The game tries to do things 'differently', but isn't done by a long shot in technical terms.

    A new Tour de France, a new Pro Cycling Manager 2013. It almost seems to be a copy of the previous game. And a copy of the one that came out before that, with the footnote that it has a few very nasty bugs. Hopefully Cyanide understands that they will have to go all out next year.

    Obscure II was an acceptable game on the PlayStation 2, since it was made as a former generation consolegame. The graphics are average and have some clear mistakes. The controls feel illogical and make the Wii version of Obscure II the worst game of all its console releases.

    Stormrise, and more so the Whip-system, could have pushed the boundaries of the consoles RTS to a higher level. Too bad it failed during the process. The game lacks a decent overview and you have little control over your units, making the game difficult to play. The game makes up for lost ground in multiplayer, but why would you settle for a mediocre RTS-game when there are so many others games that offer a lot more.
