    Bayonetta is a bizarre game that some will love, but many will hate.

    As much as I truly tried to enjoy Fable II, the fun gameplay and convincing world just couldn't make up for the game's drawbacks.
    • 87 Metascore

    The graphics are dated, the battles are like pulling teeth and while there is a lot to accomplish, none of it ever actually borders on being fun.

    • 74 Critic Score
    If games were rated on story alone Dragon Age: Origins would sit at the top of the scale, but you simply can't ignore the gameplay issues.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    Although the storyline is definitely morbid and intriguing, Indigo Prophecy screams of Dance Dance Revolution and Simon with its directional controls and the near system requirement for a dual analog gamepad.

    Much like with Assassin's Creed, people will herald inFamous as great about 5 minutes before they realize that the game gets just plain boring after you've done it all once or twice.

    For a game, it's more eye-opening than it is entertaining.

    Sine Mora is an addicting shooter the first time through, but it's very short and only the most hardcore shooter fans will get the most out of it.

    A beacon of innovation to be held aloft for others to follow in its ideals. But the trouble is it doesn't always shine (the game or the weather) and the result is a rather limited and gimmicky appeal.

    A hardcore sim for the truly hardcore sim fan.

    The "epic" quest felt like it was cut for time and the dragon riding was nowhere near what I wanted it to be. The questing here will surely be enjoyed by tons of players, but the missed opportunities made this my least favorite Skyrim expansion yet.

    If you want a fun action game and don't care about the tale it has to tell, Birth By Sleep is a great choice. If you are a fan of the series, as I reluctantly am, the game is a no-brainer. If you are a PSP Go owner, that is Sony's finger poking you in the eye. No matter which category you fall into, I think you'll agree in hoping Square Enix has some new ideas for the inevitable Kingdom Hearts III, because what they've got now is pretty tired.

    Quit reading this, head to the store and buy something that isn't Halo Wars.

    Pretty basic. Without the need to manage resources beyond controlling villages, the game's economy is about as simple as it comes.

    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.

    The pandemonium of a castle siege can be fun to watch, but experienced gamers may find that this does not compensate for the game's frustrating points.

    The mirror's edge in this game straddles excitement and frustration.

    All these years later, I always figured if Ryu Hayabusa died, it would be at the hands of a truly evil foe or rival ninja. I never thought he'd meet his end at the hands of a broken camera and an inefficient, amateurish and lazy programming team. For shame.

    A solid tactical simulation of armored warfare 1975-1985 whose real value is in the multiplayer mode.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    A saga indeed - long on story, short on gameplay - and as a gamer it's something you'll either love or hate.

    Pixel Junk Eden is innovative and visually intriguing, but there's not enough to it to keep you playing for very long.

    Trine is a near-miss attempt to revive the 2D puzzle platformer of old.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 69 Critic Score
    More of an interactive demo than a game, it will hold your attention for about the same amount of time as a short demo will.

    Tiger Woods 08 is a decent enough golf game, but the overly touchy analog swing control and forced level progression will turn a lot of people off.

    An enjoyable combat system isn't enough to save what is otherwise a rather lackluster RPG.

    Of all of the remixed Space Invaders games I've played over the past couple of years, Infinity Gene is probably my least favorite. Turning the game into a shmup was a pretty good idea, but the end result is a game that's a bit below average for the genre.

    Not quite endless, but some gamers will have fun with it while it lasts.

    You'll need to find creative ways to ways to solve the game's puzzles while it finds creative ways to frustrate you.

    Eternal Sonata is a great effort, but Chopin need not worry about his music being forgotten in favor of the memories of this game; by the time you finish, you might not even remember playing it yourself.

    As this is a classic adventure game, the story is a big part of the experience. As such, the pace will probably feel somewhat slow to those who've never played this type of game before. I wouldn't put the story on par with that of the original Monkey Island, but it's certainly better than average.
