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

    Hour of Victory is practically broken and has no business being on shelves in its current state.

    The Golden Compass is just another family-friendly film cash-in with a huge number of inexcusable technical glitches.

    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.

    This truly horrible racing game could put you off M&M's for life.

    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.

    Iron Chef America: Supreme Cuisine is a disgracefully bad attempt to capitalize on the popularity of Iron Chef.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    This dreadfully boring, expletive-filled, extremely short shooter is an absolute rip-off.

    After beating 17 races in less than two hours, you'll have seen everything that this miserable excuse for a racing game has to offer.

    NBA Unrivaled is one of the worst basketball games ever made.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Poor motion controls and unrewarding gameplay prevent you from having any fun at all with this terrible fighting game.

    This port has a host of new problems that render the game virtually unplayable.

    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.

    Childish minigames and saw-it-coming plots make NCIS a mockery of its TV inspiration.

    The only way to draw even the tiniest bit of entertainment from the game is by playing on nearly empty servers to avoid the player-killing cheaters and focus on the undead. Even then, you soon get fed up with the dreary zombie combat, or some hacker shows up and puts you out of your misery. Fighting zombie hordes in an apocalyptic wasteland has never been so depressing.

    It somehow even manages to make the Unreal engine look a pop-in-fest full of awful repetitive textures and jaggies worthy of the original PlayStation. There's no place in the world for a lemon of this magnitude.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    An unfinished, broken mess of a tactical shooter that offers not even one redemptive bright spot.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    A haphazard collection of obtuse puzzles strewn about an ill-lighted world that does nothing to call attention to them. While it might be easy to assume these frustrations echo the protagonist's apparent mental illness, PolyPusher Studios utterly fails to teach you about the limits and goals of its own work, and does little to illuminate how its puzzles relate to the real-world experience Montague's Mount tries to evoke.

    This is a totally flawed game that offers little more than a slow, barely competent combat system and a laughable storyline. And hey, if you're that desperate to experience Fighter Within, get a friend to repeatedly kick you in the shins. It's free, a nearly spot-on representation of the game, and far less painful.
