    Here's what we're dealing with: Code Lyoko: Fall of X.A.N.A. is an obtuse, for-fans-only generic RPG with no defining characteristics.

    It's online-only, its expensive and single-player enthusiasts won't find anything to enjoy in this title.

    So the story is pretty run-of-the-mill. The same can be said for just about all of this game.

    With many other much better racers available World Racing 2 should stay in the garage.

    There are certainly worse budget titles out there, but if you tire of a game after less than an hour of play how much of a bargain is it?

    Unless you really, really love monster trucks, the game's poor execution will prevent it from keeping your interest for too long.

    The primary problem with the game is that your additional form and your primary weapon, the Sword of Light, draw power from your spiritual energy. This energy is fast to drain and very slow to regenerate, giving you just a few swings of your sword before you are left without the ability to attack.

    A "Diablo II" golem – it looks like the original but lacks its heart and soul.

    Who would have thought that purging a demonic school of evil by taking control of Death’s son would be so bland, tedious, and frustrating?

    Sometimes it takes a true fan of the subject matter to appreciate a mediocre game. This is not one of those times.

    My dual sympathies go out to gamers who find themselves playing this short and dull game.

    The Empire Earth series may just end with this whimper of a game.

    In the end, Destroy All Humans: Big Willy Unleashed is a fun idea with poor implementation and some of the un-funniest moments ever captured in a videogame.

    Shallow and repetitive gameplay pretty much destroys what would be a fun animal learning session.

    Red Faction: Battlegrounds is only recommendable to those who already got it for free as a pre-order bonus, and it's not even that good of a deal for them.

    Sonic Free Riders could have been a great game if the controls worked.

    It looks great but that's about it.

    If you like tons of bad words, lame stories, and repetitive gameplay revolving around guns and cars then try 187. Otherwise just go for a nice Sunday dive away from this game.

    When viewed as a whole package, Godfather II doesn't equal the sum of its parts, or at least the sum of the parts, as they SHOULD have been.

    Those two words, wasted opportunity, are Soldiers of Misfortune's M.O. Everything about the game felt like a rush job, a an oversight related to developers who maybe just didn't care enough.

    If you want a nice, normal text adventure on the DS, Hotel Dusk and Phoenix Wright are the way to go. Lux Pain is really only suitable for gamers who are flat-out tired of stuff that makes sense, plots that can be followed and games that can be honest-to-goodness enjoyed.

    As challenging as bumper bowling and as much fun as a 7-10 split.

    There's no real reason to recommend Hellboy: Science of Evil. Hellboy fans will be disappointed, action gamers will be frustrated, and no one we'll be happy that they bought this game.

    Civil War Secret Missions is simply not recommendable. It can't be considered educational as it spreads more misinformation than it does factual information.
    • 63 Metascore

    Perhaps if the game actually were funny it could be recommended as a spoof of serious games, but that’s just not the case. You get a basic and bland RPG combined with a basic and bland RTS game, and that’s about it.

    The game’s annoyances would perhaps be tolerable if the gameplay itself was challenging and interesting. Unfortunately this is not the case. The AI takes a straightforward, brute force approach to its play and it always seems to overreact to your actions.

    C'mon Silicon Knights, give us Eternal Darkness 2 instead of this silliness!

    In Great Invasions, The Dark Ages refer to the hours upon hours you’ll spend trying to make sense of things.

    It's a bit odd and altogether not that interesting. Even though it's a budget title, you're better off waiting and saving your money for an RPG that you'll actually want to spend some time playing.

    The game selection in each is pretty thin at five games, and to top it off none of them are particularly entertaining. Odds are that you’ll just play through them all a couple of times and be done with it. The lack of any kind of detailed feedback or progress tracking means there’s little motivation to keep playing beyond that.
