    With more action and more engaging levels and storyline, Dark Messiah may have been a great game. As it stands though, it feels like a demo in search of a full game or a game brought to market a year before its time.

    It can have its moments, but a lack of action and exciting mini-games can make Muppet Party Cruise drag on like a bad party.

    Alien Shooter Vengeance manages to make the whole scale slaughter of thousands of vicious aliens tedious and repetitive.

    The game does a good job of capturing the look of Scooby Doo, but has none of its spirit.

    I can't recommend this game to anyone, unless someone out there actually enjoys fighting with the controller while blindly swimming the seas in a vain search for their next obscure objective. Best to string up this one by its tail.

    If you’re on a Shrek high after seeing the movie, by all means go ahead and rent this game. Before your rental is due back you’ll probably have had your fill with it.

    Freestyle Street Basketball is for those who enjoy outspending their opponents to buy the coolest gear and not so much for gamers just looking for a fun street hoops game.

    Splinter Cell Essentials would more be appropriately entitled “Splinter Cell Frustrations”.

    A very run of the mill platform game. You'll probably want to fast-forward past this one.

    I don't know about you, but I prefer games that can hold my interest for more than five minutes and there are plenty of tower games out there that can do that.

    If you just have to have another Bejeweled variant, then I suppose you might want to give the game a look, but otherwise there are better Bejeweled games out there (e.g. the Puzzle Quest games) that are more worth your while.

    A frustrating game when played solo that becomes a divide and conquer race through almost puzzle-like missions when played online.

    If you are keeping score, Burst Limit's fighting is shallow, the single player is ok if you have pre-existing knowledge of the show's plot but unintelligible if you don't and the online play is marred by disconnects and/or lag issues.

    Mirror's Edge is clearly an ambitious game, and you really should give EA credit for the interesting new elements. Unfortunately, the restrictive nature of the city, along with the completely odd and unnecessary shooting segments, really knock the score down a few pegs.

    Much too thin of a manual and buggy play keep Age of Sail from reaching its otherwise promising potential.

    It does a good job of keeping in the spirit of the film's storybook setting, and its quality graphics won't disappoint. However, platform players will find it too short and will be disappointed in the lack of puzzles and overall challenge in the game's levels.

    More frustrating than it is fun.

    The gameplay and adult content both fail to deliver, leaving the game thoroughly Mirra'd in mediocrity.

    Tube Slider's biggest flaw of all, though, is that it just isn't all that much fun. After your first play session with the game you'll have too strong of a "been there, done that" feeling to want to spend much more time with it.

    A great game ... just not on the GameCube.

    The biggest problem with Gyruss is that there's just not a lot too it. Once you've played it for a little bit you've seen it all, and the only motivation to keep playing is to squeeze a few more thousand points out of it to add to your high score.

    Simple, straightforward, no thrills gin rummy.

    Overall, Sid Meier's Starships is simply too simple and bland to hold the interest of empire builders for long, and its best feature, the battles, is neutered by lackluster AI.

    Super Monkey Ball: Step & Roll won't keep your interest for very long, but it may make you dizzy

    Soltrio Solitaire can only really be recommended to those who really enjoy the card game and simply have to play it on their Xbox 360. For everyone else there’s just not enough here that’s different or exciting enough to warrant buying and downloading the game.

    Spawn is indeed from hell and will make you suffer through a purgatory of repetitive gameplay.

    Devil's Cartel has a "been there, done that" attitude, and after playing it you will, too.
