    Crime Life is just plain awful. Do yourself a favor and stay away from it.

    Land of the Dead fails to deliver even the most garden-variety of zombie-killing thrills, due to its inept combat, awful visuals, and cripplingly stupid artificial intelligence.

    In a word, MK: Special Forces is ugly.
    • 34 Metascore

    Tetris Worlds does what countless iterations of the game haven't managed to do in the past--it actually breaks Tetris.

    The entire game is so unpolished and full of bugs that it's unfathomable how it ever passed quality assurance in the first place.

    Like a botched cloning experiment from a B movie, with developer Xpec Entertainment playing the mad scientist's role and Gauntlet playing the test subject. The beast that's emerged from the cloning chamber is just what you'd expect: a shambling, ugly, and dumb version of the source material.

    From top to bottom, there's absolutely nothing to like about Crime Life: Gang Wars. It isn't even bad in an interesting or funny way. It's just garbage.

    This is one of the most inept pieces of drek ever to be pawned off as a computer game.

    Because of its ugly graphics, bad sound, faulty artificial intelligence, and extremely dull gameplay, it winds up crashing to the ground like some ill-fated hydrogen blimp.

    As a team-based shooter with vehicles, the game strives to recapture the magic of "Battlefield 1942" in a sci-fi setting but fails miserably.

    It is just an awful game through and through, and it won't be enjoyed by anyone. Simply put: Don't play this game.

    When Origin of the Species isn't breaking your mind with its completely insane storyline and bizarrely terrible gameplay mechanics, it's probably breaking itself with one of its many, many bugs.

    • 20 Critic Score
    A disaster in just about every imaginable fashion. A few patches may yet round it into some kind of playable shape, but right now this is simply another cookie-cutter RTS loaded with serious bugs and unfulfilled potential.

    If America's participation in World War II was as frustratingly terrible as this game, all of Europe would be speaking German today.

    From top to bottom World War II Combat: Iwo Jima is a terrible game with no redeeming qualities whatsoever.

    Any Defender of the Crown lovers from the '80s should leave their good memories intact and ignore this desecration.

    Horrid AI, broken physics, and terrible game design conspire to topple Jenga World Tour.

    Terrible AI and indecipherable dialogue are just two of the many problems afflicting this zombie shooter.

    Without the ability to compete against human opponents, this version of Cyberball 2072 is a completely useless waste.

    Spy Games' abysmal gameplay is matched only by its flair for the generic.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    World War II shooters simply don't get worse than Battle for the Pacific.

    Poor technical performance joins mindless, repetitive gameplay and a truly atrocious sense of humor in the PlayStation 3 version of Box Office Bust.

    • 20 Critic Score
    This frustrating, broken mess is one of the worst strategy games in years.
