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

    It is formulaic, simple and not too lengthy, but it does the job for its target audience and there are hundreds of kid's games out there that are much, much worse.

    Eliminate the tedium, ratchet up the tension, and get rid of the annoying quirks and bugs and you may have yourself a good little strategy game here.

    Fishing Master is more akin to Pokemon than it is to a simulation of fishing, and will probably appeal the most to the "gotta catch them all" crowd.

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

    Just not that interesting of a game.

    Diplomacy is best left to fans of the board game looking for a little nostalgic fun. Those who enjoy juggling multiple competing proposals while under the clock are also encouraged to apply.

    A decade old racer that feels like it's a decade old.

    The ENTIRE single player experience can be viewed as such: Enter room, clear room of enemies, enter next room, clear enemies, enter... You get the picture. Boss battles do help to break up the monotony, but like I said before, they are crazy easy, oft repeated and often just plain stupid.

    A poor single-player campaign and quirky interface issues make the game frustrating to all but the hardcore death match crowd.

    This game is more torture than anything Dr. No or Goldfinger ever dreamed up.

    Romancing SaGa has areas that may prove to be interesting in the future, but the lack of a story and uninteresting characters prove too much to overcome.

    It just seems to consistently fall short in the action, puzzle, and suspense categories.

    Overall, The Lost Admiral Returns doesn’t have enough going for it to hook a new generation of strategy gamers. While there are strategy games that can stand the test of time, The Lost Admiral Returns is not one of them. This fleet could use a modernization overhaul.

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

    Again, it's not a terrible game; it is, however, one of the biggest letdowns of 2011.

    Datura demonstrates that the surreal can be just as frustrating as the real world.

    Rather than feel like you're in constant danger in the lair of the enemy, you'll feel more like you're whiling away the hours on a Saturday afternoon playing with the odds and ends lying around on your garage tool bench.

    Frontline: Fields of Thunder turns all out tank warfare into a tedious puzzle.

    The card battling system never gives the player the feeling of being in control. Instead, most battles feel completely random and no amount of card handling skill can deal with a terrible hand when fighting some of the more powerful opponents.

    About what you'd expect from a budget shooter, maybe less.

    There's so little to the game that it's hard to imagine it holding anyone's interest for long.

    Do yourself a favor and check out my review for Naruto – Clash of the Ninja Revolution here on this site. I promise; it is at least 1,000,000 times better than this disgrace of a video game.

    Rampage Total Destruction is far from being totally fun.

    The Art of Supremacy is best left to the most ardent of Empire Earth II fans.

    All of these touches are implemented adequately enough, but they just can't make up for the broken gameplay.

    Boogie is the type of game that would make a good rental for an evening when you’re entertaining some guests who aren’t gamers.

    The 2D grainy characters and low-color, static, and minimalist backgrounds may have been acceptable in an arcade 10 years ago or on a Sega Genesis, but do you really want to see graphics like these on your Xbox?

    Unfortunately, the game just didn't gel into one piece of entertainment; instead, it felt like a bunch of unfinished pieces of other games, smooshed together and sent to stores without much oversight in the quality department.

    Genesis Rising is pretty, innovative, and a complete mess.
