    Poor AI, dull design, and lackluster presentation all add up to make Blade II a game that you should definitely skip.

    Unfortunately, after a few hours of play, it quickly becomes apparent that the only thing undone by the Grinch is your own personal satisfaction.

    A perfect example of good intentions gone awry.

    Pac-Man World Rally is a paint-by-numbers kart racer with almost zero in the way of unique qualities or challenges.

    This third-person action game might sound like a great idea if you're a fan of 50, Yayo, Buck, and Banks, but with its poor gameplay and worse attention to the G-Unit license, Bulletproof disappoints on all fronts.

    Though it has a few extra features like higher-quality full-motion video and an improved "dinosaur encyclopedia," it's really just an average game that you'd do well to pass up.

    Shadow the Hedgehog fails to live up to its pedigree due to terrible controls, an uncooperative camera, and an overall lack of effort.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    An uninspiring puzzle game with an equally lifeless plot.

    As the title advertises, Crashday has a fair number of car crashes, but the trouble is that it doesn't have much of anything else.

    Sadly, like the war it's based on, WWI: The Great War is an exercise in madness, frustration, helplessness, and human folly. This is a mess of a real-time strategy game.

    Strings together a bunch of violent novelties without ever constructing a compelling game for them to support.

    Knockout Kings 2001 is more of a hitting simulation than a boxing simulation, which is a complete turnoff for die-hard boxing fans who want realism.

    Poor AI, dull design, and lackluster presentation all add up to make Blade II a game that you should definitely skip.

    Those who are only mildly into the sport will be disappointed by the game's repetitive graphics, steep learning curve, and overall lack of variety or fun.

    While Backyard Wrestling certainly has qualities that could make for an interesting wrestling game, Don't Try This at Home is so unpolished that it's far more of a chore than a pleasure to play.

    Shadow the Hedgehog fails to live up to its pedigree due to terrible controls, an uncooperative camera, and an overall lack of effort.

    Rainbow Six Critical Hour's brief campaign, poor presentation, and broken multiplayer make it almost impossible to recommend, even to longtime fans.

    Don't go into The Secret of the Stolen Drums thinking you're going to get an educational game or an enjoyable platformer, as you'll find neither here.

    Only die-hard fans of Acclaim's long-running series should bother with this title.

    A decent driving model is spoiled by uninspired, unbalanced features in this budget street racing game.

    Sure, the Wii version throws in some new motion-sensing controls, and you still get to swing around inside a giant, open-ended version of New York City. But everything else about these iterations of Spider-Man 3 is ugly, clumsy, or utterly boring.

    While there are some decent ideas in And1 Streetball, it feels like the game wasn't refined nearly enough as it should have been. Everything, from the core gameplay to the presentation, seems very roughly executed, so it's difficult to recommend this game to anyone.

    While the unusually small levels keep the pacing of the game fairly brisk, you'll also find that it takes about two hours of casual playing time to finish the entire game. Unfortunately, the game has little to keep you interested once you've finished it the first time.

    The expansion's scenarios, and the ideas behind them, seem tired and overused, and the expansion itself is overpriced.

    As a way to get a Wii Remote into Aunt Ethel's hands, Wing Island might work, but this is a pretty dull ride for anyone with more discerning tastes.

    All the wonder of the Bionicle universe has been bled dry by a vapid design and an atrocious camera system.

    The racing is bland, the destruction is minimal, the excitement is nonexistent, the presentation is mediocre, and the content is lacking.

    It was more compelling on the PSP since no one else had even made an attempt to represent the game on the system up to that point, but with dozens of different pool games available for consoles at a near-universal budget price, many of which are vastly superior in terms of gameplay quality, The Hustle: Detroit Streets becomes thoroughly unnecessary.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 47 Critic Score
    Controls that fluctuate between touchy and unresponsive, a short list of gameplay modes, and a poorly realized multiplayer all conspire to bring down the already well-tread puzzle action in Bust-A-Move Bash!.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 47 Critic Score
    An incredibly dated port, and the fact that it retails for as much as a game made within the last year is quite despicable.
