    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.

    Poor motion controls and unrewarding gameplay prevent you from having any fun at all with this terrible fighting game.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    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.
    • 39 Metascore

    Absolutely awful in every way.

    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.

    • 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.

    The game's title may not provide justification for exploring the dungeon, but the much bigger I DON'T KNOW here is why anyone would play this game.

    No matter what your level of enthusiasm for the X series is, do your best to escape the pull of Rebirth's gravity. It's only bound to cause a fatal crash.
    • 39 Metascore

    Buggy behavior and clunky locomotion make it a mechanical failure, leaving the story and themes to make good where gameplay could not. Alas, irredeemable characters and loathsome dialogue aren't appropriate pillars upon which to erect a substantial tale.

    You can pass through most of the game in this way without ever having to fight, which means that Arthur's Quest is either an action game with an exceedingly poor design or a fast-paced, arcade-style coward simulator.

    An unplayable mess of a game; it feels like a really bad amateur mod that was released before it was finished.

    If you have the misfortune of playing Mini RC Rally, you can at least find solace in knowing the next game you play won't be any worse.
    • 46 Metascore

    About as incoherent and obnoxious as the ramblings of a bored frat boy who's holding an empty six-pack and a boom box, except with Nightcaster II, you have to pay $40 to be subjected to it.
    • 32 Metascore

    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.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 19 Critic Score
    A horrific display of ineptitude.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 18 Critic Score
    A huge mess of a game that is riddled with grievous bugs, badly designed in every measurable capacity, and completely lacking in any conceivable dimension of fun.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 18 Critic Score
    One of those curious amalgams of a migraine-inducing interface and relentless number crunching, a program so needlessly complex that you can't bring yourself to call it a game.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 17 Critic Score
    More punishment than game. No matter what the box says, this isn't so much a fantasy role-playing game as it is a medieval torture device right up there with the rack and the iron maiden.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 17 Critic Score
    In short, the game plays like an unfinished product rushed out the door and has absolutely no redeeming qualities whatsoever.

    Pimp My Ride was shoddy enough as a console game, but the PSP version goes that extra mile and makes it completely unplayable.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 16 Critic Score
    Downright painful to play...utter garbage that should be passed up without a second thought.

    It's hard to imagine that anyone would want his or her name prominently displayed on such an abysmal game, especially one whose only distinguishing feature is that it's actually even worse than the awful game that preceded it, a contender for worst game of last year, Elite Forces: Navy SEALs.
