    A train wreck of a game... Falls short in every respect.

    An insult to Harley fans and racing-game aficionados, this game should be avoided at all costs.

    Even taking the lack of MX games into consideration, this game is bad for everybody, and it's our sincerest hope that potential players will take our advice and stay very, very far away from this game.

    A miserable failure...Gamers are advised to avoid this game, period.

    Unfortunately, Tetris Worlds also introduces one particular change to the gameplay that renders the classic game all but unplayable.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 24 Critic Score
    Derivative, homely, tedious, and buggy. It also has a useless character stat and leveling system, so RPG enthusiasts can hate it too.

    Superman Returns for the DS is a terrible game for numerous reasons.

    Even the most hard-core Aquaman devotees will likely find little use for this short, shallow, problematic ramshackle game.

    In practice, however, the game's ugly textures, poor frame rate, and clunky gameplay combine to make MTV Skateboarding one of the worst PlayStation games released this year.

    Even the most hard-core Aquaman devotees will likely find little use for this short, shallow, problematic ramshackle game.

    A date with Kim Jong II would be more enjoyable than this shooter.

    The gameplay takes you back in time to the days when RTS programmers had yet to figure out such intricacies as pathfinding, level design, and visual presentation.

    If the developer was out to break the game of poker, then it succeeded masterfully... The last thing on Earth any poker player should do is pick up a copy of World Poker Championship.

    It may be a great toy, but Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots is a lousy video game.

    Terrible controls and paper-thin gameplay make Greg Hastings' Tournament Paintball Max'd a bad deal, even for a budget game.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 22 Critic Score
    Despite its lengthy production cycle, has a bevy of horrible problems that render the game practically unplayable.
    • 36 Metascore

    An unplayable mess.

    If you're looking for a horrifically bad game that takes less than two hours to finish--but arguably does follow the plot of the film--then, by all means, give Van Helsing a shot. Just remember to hold onto the receipt.

    In a word, this game is ugly.
    • 30 Metascore

    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.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 21 Critic Score
    There's really no need for this game to exist. For Activision Value to have essentially repackaged a bad old game as a bad new game is an obvious and despicable attempt to cash in on the recent military operations going on in the Middle East.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 21 Critic Score
    The entire game is so unpolished and full of bugs that it's unfathomable how it ever passed quality assurance in the first place.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 21 Critic Score
    In a word, MK: Special Forces is ugly.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 21 Critic Score
    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.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 21 Critic Score
    A game that simply attempts to cash in on the success of "Counter-Strike" and the "Rainbow Six" series by copying their themes, but it ends up falling well short of the mark because of its terrible graphics engine, its ill-conceived design, and a campaign that takes only a few hours to (nearly) complete.

    Tetris Worlds does what countless iterations of the game haven't managed to do in the past--it actually breaks Tetris.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 21 Critic Score
    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.

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

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

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