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

    Tedious pace and annoying pixel hunts sabotage this surreal adventure.

    There was potential here, but dreadful graphics and poor artificial intelligence make this a battle best avoided.

    Koei's Sengoku-era-inspired Samurai Warriors franchise hits a new low with this on-rails first-person action game.

    If the wait for the 2010 Winter Olympics is killing you, this ho-hum collection won't make time go by any quicker.

    The game's overall lack of content makes it one of the last things you'd want to spend 40 bucks on. Even though it manages to capture the occasional burst of Sonic speed, there isn't enough content in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity to keep you entertained for more than two or three laps.

    Legend is just another uninspired action RPG.

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

    The Phantom Fortress is full of lame minigames, occasional fights, and tons of repetition. Enter at your own risk.

    Mister Slime looks about as simplistic as it plays, displaying gameplay on the bottom screen while relegating Slimy's health, points, and menu items to the top screen.

    The production values and overall presentation certainly fit this cut-rate title, and you'll soon get bored if you're playing alone.

    With an ancient design and old-fashioned gameplay, Command and Destroy is more like a gust of stale air than a blast from the past.

    Guilty Gear 2 may be an interesting experiment in cross-genre game design, but it's mostly a shallow mess.

    Deriving pleasure from this dull, monotonous RPG is a challenge that should only be undertaken by the most hardcore Code Lyoko fans.

    Enough effort was put into the gameplay and graphical design to keep it from crashing and burning, but not enough to inject it with any sort of life or appeal.

    Like a poisonous mushroom, Rise of the Fungi looks good but makes you feel bad.

    Supreme Ruler 2020's steep learning curve and micromanagement will turn off all but the most fanatical strategy gamers.

    The XBLA version of Wits & Wagers is cheaper than the board game but not nearly as easy to recommend.

    Pop
    Though Pop can be fun in short bursts, it isn't worth 700 Wii points ($7).

    This mech strategy RPG is rusty and dull.

    Belief & Betrayal is a paint-by-numbers adventure that amounts to little more than a lame rip-off of the Da Vinci Code.

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

    Bolt's superpowers can't save anyone from a poor camera and dull gameplay.

    Questionable design choices aside, the problem with almost every aspect of The Godfather II is simply that it feels unfinished.

    Even if it were finished, this movie-inspired action game wouldn't be deserving of its prestigious license.
