    Neither a good action game on its own merits, nor quality fan service, Reservoir Dogs is an out and out failure.

    Unfortunately, none of the events are done particularly well.

    AMF Xtreme Bowling is yet another bowling game that's so easy to master that you really shouldn't waste any of your time on it.

    Even if you forgive the flimsy story, cliché characters, and derivative gameplay, it's impossible to look past the myriad game-stopping bugs, frustrating glitches, and glaring technical problems that plague this game.

    This hackneyed terrorist shooter is without story, without characters, without originality, and most importantly, without fun.

    A dull and clumsy racing game that will disappoint even the most forgiving Ford enthusiasts.

    You get only generic adventure-game puzzles that have little to do with detective work and everything to do with tricking people into helping you perform mundane tasks.

    While EA has done an OK job of turning quidditch into a video game, the sport itself doesn't have enough depth to it to headline a stand-alone product.

    Battle Nexus is more than just a step backward for this series--it's a step backward into a large chasm.

    Those who are willing to tackle the incredibly high learning curve will still find Fighter Maker 2 to be time consuming, if nothing else.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    A shallow reimagining of the classic adventure that fails to justify its existence in the modern era.

    Not to mention that Street Supremacy includes quite possibly the most perplexing and seemingly broken ad-hoc multiplayer mode we've ever seen on the PSP.

    This shooter is a painful exercise in pattern memorization plus frustrating trial-and-error gameplay.

    The PS2 version of this military shooter addresses some of the issues that hampered its 2-year-old PC counterpart, but it introduces far more problems than it fixes.

    Wants to appeal to everyone, but ultimately, it's not well suited for anyone.
    • 57 Metascore

    Legend is just another uninspired action RPG.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    Great visuals and sound mean absolutely nothing in Lair. Factor 5 should have made a movie--not a game. This is the ultimate example of how gameplay suffers when all the work goes into making everything look pretty. There is nothing fun about it.

    The XBLA version of Wits & Wagers is cheaper than the board game but not nearly as easy to recommend.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    Extremely difficult puzzles and a vague plot sink this ambitious Myst clone.
    • 37 Metascore

    If the problems with getting the game to run weren't enough reason to keep you away from Chaos Legion, then the boring gameplay and graphical shortcomings should be reason enough.

    You have to give B-Boy credit for taking a novel approach to a relatively untapped subject. But then you have to take all that credit away for the fact that it has no story, a Byzantine move system, and repetitive gameplay. In the end, B-Boy is difficult to pick up, easy to master, and impossible to recommend.

    This simple superhero game is a super bore.

    SnapCity is a neat concept, but in practice, it's dreadfully boring.
    • 66 Metascore

    Memento Mori is a plodding adventure that makes the world of art forgeries and ancient mysteries seem dull.
    • 55 Metascore

    The frustrating controls ruin what could have otherwise been a standout conversion of one of the Dreamcast's more unique games.

    Dark Horizon is an improvement on its Tarr Chronicles predecessor, but that isn't saying much.
    • 65 Metascore

    Questionable design choices aside, the problem with almost every aspect of The Godfather II is simply that it feels unfinished.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    Tedious quests and dull, infuriating combat make this one fantasy adventure whose monsters you won't want to hunt.

    It's hard to mess up a hidden-object game, but Interpol tries.
