    • 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.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 23 Critic Score
    Even the most hard-core Aquaman devotees will likely find little use for this short, shallow, problematic ramshackle game.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 23 Critic Score
    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.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 23 Critic Score
    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.

    • 22 Critic Score
    It may be a great toy, but Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots is a lousy video game.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 22 Critic Score
    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
    • 22 Critic Score
    An unplayable mess.
    • 33 Metascore

    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
    • 21 Critic Score
    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.
    • 37 Metascore

    Hour of Victory is practically broken and has no business being on shelves in its current state.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Without character customization or any semblance of proper communication, the game has nothing to offer in place of its sacrifices. Like Sisyphus on a treadmill, I fruitlessly walked around in hopes of discovering something worthwhile. Unless this game can find its way, discovery will remain a lost cause.

    The King of Monsters stars in the worst of DS games.
    • 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.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    This is one of the most inept pieces of drek ever to be pawned off as a computer game.
