    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.

    On the brink of greatness, Brink employs objective-based matches to churn out a dull, frustrating time.

    Nuclear Dawn is a game that can reach great things if it was put together more coherently. Bugs, balance issues, and an uninspired use of the apocalyptic settings make for a game that feels competent at best and incomplete at its worst.

    The pets element offers a little spark of nuance in an otherwise dated formula. And the spry animations of the pups and kittens do well to make the game all the more endearing.

    Overall, this game can be incredibly addicting and frustrating but if you are a huge fan of puzzle games, the $9.99 pricetag could make it worth it.

    If you like jet shooters, WWII games, or games that you can play at all, avoid 1941: Red Sun Rising.

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

    Two Worlds 2 just takes too long and requires too much punishment on the part of the player to be an overall enjoyable experience, despite a few fleeting instances of charm.

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

    Earth Defense Force 2017 wasn't very good, but you couldn't help enjoying it. Insect Armageddon, on the other hand, just isn't good.

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

    Kill Team is an undercooked twin stick shooter that looks nice but suffers serious technical and gameplay issues that are simply not acceptable for a game released in 2011.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    This game is narrowly focused towards collectible card game fans. Even hardcore followers will see that playing the video game version falls way short of live play against real people with real cards. As for the rest of the gamers, the game won't be.

    I'd like to say that MX vs. ATV Alive is a game for motocross purists, but I feel even that is a stretch. It's just not a very good game, even at the budget price.

    It's the original version with an awful new one tacked on. This is the very definition of cash-in.

    A game developed as a piece of edutainment that fails to be just that because of its fundamentally broken gameplay and many other unexcusable problems.

    Mario Party 8 is probably the series' biggest step backwards in its lifetime, and after eight years of consistency from the franchise, this addition falls way too short to recommend a purchase.

    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.

    An easily forgettable game that is sure to get lost among the holiday season's high profile games.

    Okabu slaps kid gloves on each level, rarely empowering the player to explore or deduce. The concept is admirable; the execution disappoints.
