    The good parts might not be enough to overcome the poor camera and game control.

    Your typical arcade-style button mashing adventure game. It should remind you of playing "X-Men" and "The Simpsons" in the arcade with the way it demands constant repetitive button pushing.

    Simple, straightforward, no thrills gin rummy.

    This add-on isn't without its good points, though. It offers players a place to store their gear (something I felt was sorely missing from the main game) and introduces the arena's master, Mad Moxxi, with a cool, stylish introduction, but overall, this DLC is hampered by its insistence on defying Borderlands' main selling points.

    Kane and Lynch 2 offers more variety in its multiplayer modes this time and even introduces a single player Fragile Alliance, but the main story can get so very repetitive with its lack of variety, making it feel just like another average third person shooter overall.

    Even if past DBZ games have rubbed you the wrong way, and I know a lot of them have, give this one a shot. Unless you are a hardcore fan of Japanese voice tracks, you won't be disappointed.

    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.

    On the positive side, the game features a strong racing engine, good graphics, and competent AI racers, and the multiplayer races are exciting. On the negative, the presentation is pretty basic, the event selection is limited, severely so for a while into the game, and the DLC available at the time of this writing is a bit on the sparse side. With more content it would be a stellar game, but for now it's more for fans of the sport than anyone else.

    King of Fighters XII attempts a new fresh start for the series, but beyond the new character sprites, not too much else has changed.

    Luxor: Pharaoh's Challenge is enjoyable enough but doesn't justify its higher price.

    Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is a lot of things, but it is a far cry from the complete disaster some have claimed it to be. It's glitchy in places, difficult to control, repetitive, devoid of a decent online mode and worst of all, it dangles the free roam stages in front of the player – and said bonuses are empty wastelands of sheer boredom.

    Not all board games can be improved by virtualization, but there's some fun to be had in this game collection.

    The problem with Outcry isn't that it was cheaply made, it's that the developers took what little they had, and made something unappealing and boring out of an interesting concept.

    This Missile Command is off target.

    Like the 100 meter dash, it's fun while it lasts but is over too quickly.

    This collection won't make everyone happy, but for the people it tantalizes the wait for next year's new movie will be a little more bearable.

    Like a bad sci-fi version of "Diablo" or "Diablo 2" set in outer space. Unless you’re dying to spend hours on a Diablo throwback, it’s likely that you will think of Space Hack as just another hack and slash RPG arriving on the shelves a few years too late.

    A case where the sum is greater than the parts. If you can get past the repetitive gameplay you may actually find a game with a great personality.

    Veterans of the genre will probably find it limited and simplistic.

    If you loved the movie or just want to spend an hour or so with the game, then it's worth renting as long as you're happy with what you're getting yourself into. As a purchase, though, it's far too short, easy, and buggy to be worth the price.

    Texas Cheat 'Em may be built on an original idea, but it just can't pull it off.

    The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon is an overall fun single or multiplayer experience for anyone that wants to rejoin the adventures of the legendary purple dragon.

    For all intents and purposes Bakugan: Battle Brawlers is just battle after battle after battle (is that how it got the title?) with slow mechanics and nearly nothing to offer in the way of story, characters or much else.

    Individual matches are easy to win and the career mode quickly becomes an exercise in repetition.

    It's pretty safe to say that your enjoyment of Uno Free Fall will depend more on how much you like Tetris than how much you like Uno. If you're a DS owner, opt for the DS version of the game as it provides several games packed onto a single cart.

    There are other interface issues and annoyances in Silverfall, but I’ll spare you from going into them in detail. Overall they all conspire to add too much frustration to Silverfall and the game’s interesting elements just can’t compete with this.

    It may have been liberated from the PlayStation Vita, but it still feels like a portable game.
