    It's as if Silicon Knights threw together a boring action brawler and slapped the X-Men name on it to sell more copies.

    The premise and humor provide some enjoyment, but there's no getting over the glaring mechanical missteps featured in this mediocre beat-'em up game.

    It's surprising that Stardock would release Elemental in the condition it's in. The game is unfinished in every aspect; missing features that are standard in current 4X games and in video games in general.

    As it stands, this is something most gamers will refuse to play until several updates and fixes are made. The sad part? This game is strangely addicting at times. Imagine what could have been.

    Bloodrayne: Betrayal is a frustrating mess of a game that shows a lot of promise in parts, but never actually delivers.

    There's something redeeming about the LEGO humor that can help us older Harry Potter fans smile through some of the pain, but it certainly is no remedy for all this game's woes.

    Red Faction: Battlegrounds isn't terrible, but it's hard to understand why this is a Red Faction game at all. What you're left with is a mediocre dual-stick shooter that is severely lacking in content and becomes repetitive quickly.

    The most disappointing aspect of Tekken Hybrid isn't the bare-bones update of Tekken Tag Tournment or the dreadful CG film included in the release. It's the fact that it feels like a squandered opportunity for something bigger.

    Everything about this game ranges from meh to ugh; the gameplay, the visuals, the physics, the audio, and even the controls. If you're a diehard fan, then get it. Otherwise, please skip it.

    Splatterhouse really is a despicable game, but there are players out there who will adore the chain-wallet-wearing protagonist and his super-violent escapades. The hope may have been for a decent God of War knockoff, but in reality it's just not so.

    I wanted to like this game--I just couldn't. Whether it's the fault of the changes from the Japanese to American version or the minigames themselves, something just never clicks.

    These types of games are often focused on a lonely construct. Fate of the World's zoomed out view only amplifies it.

    Brain Voyage is basically a collection of simple games that have little to do with logical reasoning or deep thought and analysis.

    Had Namco Bandai polished the controls in Go Vacation and slapped a $29 price tag on the box, I'd recommend a used copy. Unfortunately, the game is not something worth playing.

    Time Ace is a good game to play one time for a few minutes at a friend's house; it's a horrible game to spend your money on.

    My take-home message is this: do NOT buy this game if you aren't a big fan of the show. There is absolutely nothing here for you. If you do enjoy the show, still do NOT buy it. Rent it for the few hours it takes to experience the game and watch the included episodes, then don't think about it ever again.

    : It has some redeemable qualities, but it's too repetitive and boring to offer any kind of real action experience.

    There isn't much more to say about Word Puzzle. It is your Sunday newspaper's word search with a little extra incentive and competitive play thrown, but the gameplay isn't as good.

    It's interesting enough for a quick look but Train Simulator 2012 is only for devout train fanatics.

    Despite an engaging leveling system and a wonderful soundtrack, the majority of the game feels too dated, cliche, and subpar to be enjoyable, overall.

    Severed places an ungainly weight on the shoulders of dismemberment combat for this extension of Dead Space: Extraction's fiction, creating a dichotomy as uncomfortable as traipsing backwards through already tired levels.

    Knights Contract can be enjoyable at times, but once players get into the thick of play, the questionable AI, level design, combat mechanics, and even visuals will make it more difficult to feel comfortable with.

    TubeHero drives my music down the famous note highway and turns my phalangeal percussion section into a score, and then an advertisement.

    APB is a mess, plagued with broken core systems that don't work as the developer intended, leading to a game that is more of a chore you have to deal with than it is a game that is fun to play.
