    It would be nice if there were more to this game, or if a little more thought had been put into the clues and words.

    Whispering Willows has you guiding a story along more than actually playing a game.

    Wario, what happened to the fun?

    If you really, really must play a MMORPG space sim, then you should give VO a trial run as it does deliver the very basics. Otherwise, it is hard to recommend that you spend your MMORPG time and money on this one.

    Too simple and shallow for baseball fans, too many gameplay issues for arcade sports fans - Inside Pitch 2003 is destined to be a benchwarmer.

    Overall, it seems to me that Blood Bowl 2 is focused on recreating the board game experience to a fault.

    It's enjoyable for a quest or two, but then it feels like an exercise in mindless repetition.

    Sometimes simplistic gameplay can make for a really fun game. This is not one of those times.

    While not the most ground breaking stealth title, Vampire Rain is worth a try for a stealth fan, even with its flaws.

    What might have been a good game is dusted by poor controls.

    Although based on a popular board game, you'll soon grow bored with this game.

    It can be fun at times for fans of the movie, but it is too inconsistent to recommend to the casual action gamer.

    Faces of War has its moments ... some good ones and plenty of frustrating ones.

    The game does a good job of channeling the classics in the genre from a presentation point of view, but it misses out on the factors that made those games so much fun and turned them into timeless classics.

    The gameplay style is decidedly straight-forward action-RPG, and the game has you facing untold numbers of enemies that must be dispatched with button-mashing monotony.

    Buzz Master Quiz is not much of a quiz show and is far to easy for quiz masters. Even those looking for a casual trivia game will only get a few hours of fun out of it. You're best off simply taking a pass on this one.

    Tries to deliver a varied and immersive gaming experience, but just doesn't deliver.

    Instead of treading in familiar action territory, Castlevania Judgement introduces us to a fighting genre with Castlevania characters but the overall Castlevania feel and quality that the series usually displays suffers quite a bit with this change.

    In Besieger, a different approach to RTS strategy is defeated by poor execution and dismal AI.

    Gryphon Knight Epic has a certain nostalgic vibe to it and it delivers a style of gameplay that's in short supply these days, but it fails to nail the gameplay both in terms of mechanics and enjoyment. There are some good ideas at work behind the game, but they need more work to make Gryphon Knight Epic a good game.

    The game is good for a little bit of mindless fun ' the crazy ricochets and exploding zombies are entertaining ' but there's not a lot of challenge to setting up your shots.

    The nature of the games means that they really only entertain the first time that you see each one, so repetition very rapidly sets in and your interest will wane just as rapidly. So much so, that you may not even be interested in playing the same micro games over and over again simply to unlock the rest of them.

    There’s no customization in the game and the business model is extremely light. What the game really comes down to is keeping pretty girls happy so that you can keep watching them in their bikinis, and Hot Dog King manages to make this a pretty boring exercise.

    Even with its flaws, Spider-Man: Friend or Foe is a rather fun brawler that can be enjoyable for a while. It can be beaten in about two days, so one rental will easily give enough time to plow through this game and complete everything it has to offer.

    A so-so game that would have been really good twenty years ago.

    A fun main mode of play that can get quite addicting, but once the novelty fades there isn't anything else on offer except for the promise of future upgrades.

    A mix of tactical and shooter gameplay can work - it has worked in other games before - it just doesn't work well here. It's probably the result of all of the gear changing that the game had to do during development.

    A weekend rental for those looking for a big rig fix, but it has trouble keeping its momentum up over the long haul.

    Some of the ideas behind the game are good, and Fortified might have been an enjoyable game if they were better developed and balanced. Perhaps it needed more time in development or a bigger budget.

    Brink has occasional flashes of brilliance and fun moments, but on the whole it just feels like a game that needed more time in design and development.
