    As the game was released a couple of years ago on the PC and met with lackluster reviews, I'm not sure what the motivation was behind re-releasing it on the 360 without addressing any of its many, many faults. Whatever the reasoning, there are so many quality shooters on the 360 and there's so much wrong with this game that even with Infernal's budget price, there's no reason to check this one out.

    Maybe if Morrigan's ending had been a satisfying one I would have been fine with paying for a 45 minute side quest through places I've already been but it wasn't-so I'm not.

    Like all games based on successful licenses from the written world, it’s a shame to see Immortals of Terra struggle so much in terms of overall direction. I’m sure in the vast Perry Rhodan landscape there’s more than enough material to make several blockbuster titles, yet this game fails to even make it out of the starting block.

    Bad looking, worst sounding, poor playing and bug-ridden. In the end analysis, buy the DVD and enjoy the movie - leave the game on the shelf.

    This game just sucks. Avoid at all costs. In fact, don't even pretend that this exists.

    It is offensively stupid, combining muddy graphics, horrible character design, sluggish controls, and miserable game play into a morass of anti-fun.

    From the annoying sidekick lizard’s sex jokes, to the whiplash you get from the fast and furious cut-scenes, to the lousy solution guide which is both required reading and written in a horribly obnoxious tone, there’s nothing in Forever Worlds that would appeal to anyone.

    I almost had a brain hernia trying to rationalize why there wasn't an Atari 2600 controller in my hand. Sure, we have the JUMP BUTTON and a frigging BLOCK BUTTON, but why is there only ONE ATTACK BUTTON?!

    Between the camera and targeting woes, generally clunky gameplay, and a complete inability to capture the essence of what makes the G.I. Joe franchise fun and exciting in the first place—the game is a complete failure.

    Even at a low price point, fans are better off avoiding this one.

    Misery may love company, but your company will hate you for inflicting this game upon them.

    In the end, there’s no real reason to play this game. Combat is dull and unchallenging and the flying mechanics are twitchy and unresponsive.

    EA’s "The Godfather" may not have been perfect, but it took typical gameplay elements, tweaked them in their own way, and made the game compelling in its storyline, graphics, and gameplay. The Sopranos got one out of three, and it isn’t the most important element, which is fun gameplay. This game sleeps with the fishes.

    In the end, this is a movie for collectors and fans with a casual game tacked on.

    I could go on at length about the bad level design, the repeated attempts at humor, the shockingly poor and limited multiplayer and more examples of the "nothing new here" gameplay but it is best just to forget about Duke Nukem Forever. Forget about it entirely, because you're missing nothing.

    It’s sad to see a beloved series sink so low—like watching a childhood friend fall to drink and destitution, stumbling into the street to be hit by a truck.

    A hackneyed premise that flirts with the same issues of terrorism examined in scores of other shooters hardly makes an impact here.

    Simply put, Godzilla Unleashed is a horrible game—all 17 painful stages.

    Unfortunately, no matter how much you change his appearance or try to play up his role as King of Atlantis and his responsibility for patrolling the majority of the planet, Aquaman still sucks.

    HSM 2 had an interesting premise going for it; the Lava Springs Resort is laid out well. Apparently all of the cartridge’s memory went towards the audio because there is no plot, there is no fun gameplay and the game is just too redundant to enjoy at all, even for the diehard HSM fans. Stay away from this game - you have been warned.

    Everything about this game, from the simplistic graphics and the incoherent story to the lack of a workable save system and the horrible hit detection speak to a rushed effort. Even the manual is filled with errors, with the table of contents pointing to sections that don’t exist.

    NFL Tour isn’t just bad. It’s other-worldy bad...It was my hope that in this case less would be more, but unfortunately less is less. We are left with a completely boring and terrible game that I think could be justification for the NFL to revoke the license.

    AMY
    Just a couple of button presses away from Amy on both the Xbox and PlayStation marketplaces is a little game called Resident Evil 4 that does this idea brilliantly with a girl named Ashley instead of Amy. Sure, it costs twice as much but you'll be buying and playing one of the best games ever made-not one of the worst.

    I am reminded of Super Monkey Ball Jr for the Game Boy Advance as an example of a great handheld maze game. Although it was released many years ago, the difference in actual gameplay experience between the GBA and the DS is night and day.

    Hour of Victory has so many problems that it is mind boggling. I could write another two-hundred words about how badly this game was put together but what's the point? The bottom line is that everything about this game feels unfinished.

    Feels like a cell phone game; been here, done that; terrible use of controls.

    Parents, avoid this game if you don’t want your little tyke smashing his expensive DS against a wall in frustration. Dragon Booster fails in nearly every way and never should have seen the outside of the development studio.
