    Double Helix doesn't do anything that hasn't already been done better in Activision's own Return to Castle Wolfenstein.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    Eagle Eye Golf is a lot like "Hot Shots Golf," but not as good.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    While there are certainly worse movie-license games out there, Shrek the Third still feels slapdash and thoughtless, plus its function to entertain is overwhelmed by its function to make money.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    An over-priced arcade port with some neat ideas that don't translate into satisfying gameplay.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    Has a few surprises and some significant flaws. While die-hard strategy fans and extreme fans of the Heroes series on the PC might get a kick out of this one, it's really a rental at best.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    There are hints of inspiration throughout, with the game sporting some good-looking visuals, a catchy soundtrack, and a distinct sense of style. But the game's length, uneven gameplay, and atrocious camera negate these virtues.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    Attempts to combine zany locales with tried-and-true bowling mechanics, but the game lacks substance and ultimately won't please bowling fans, be they hardcore or casual.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    Simply one of the laziest uses of the DS's touch screen technology to date, featuring highly repetitive gameplay that gets old before you've even finished your first race.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    Offers several solid interpretations of the classic Russian mindbender, though there's little here that hasn't been seen before.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    Just another shallow party game.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    This budget action game has its moments, but it's also a very shallow experience with very little depth or replayability.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    Shrek the Third is a lazy game that coasts by on the strength of the brand.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    It's easy to see how certain aspects of Metroid's design made it a classic, but 18 years later, the overall package just doesn't measure up to today's action adventure standards.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    Just shy of average - there's nothing particularly bad here, but what little good it has is purely incidental and generally ignorable.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    There's a lot of potential here, but many of the games have issues with their graphics, sound, or control that make the entire package a real disappointment.

    • 52 Critic Score
    History Channel: Civil War is good for a few mindless hours of shooting action, but not much else. History buffs need not apply.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    Despite its earnest attempt at realism, the game's clunky, overly convoluted interface, general lack of gameplay variety, and incredibly stripped-down presentational aspects leave it dull, confusing, and generally not much fun to play.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    A classic example of how to make a real-time strategy game and then completely undermine it with a bad user interface.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    The game's slow pacing, simple combat, weak production values, and other shortcomings collectively prevent Submarine Titans from being much fun.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    Unfortunately, none of these interesting design ideas were executed well, leaving you with a game that feels half-baked and suffers from terrible pacing.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    Even if you forgive the flimsy story, cliché characters, and derivative gameplay, it's impossible to look past the myriad frustrating technical problems that plague this game.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    For fishing game fans that really enjoy simulation-style fishing games with all of the extras like boats and vast areas to explore, the game will undoubtedly fail to please.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    The best that can be said about the game is that its sci-fi atmosphere and smart artificial intelligence make it a somewhat acceptable way for the desperate to whittle away a couple of dozen hours waiting for someone to finally do a proper remake of "X-COM."
    • 49 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    The Runabout series not only hasn't kept up with the times ("Crazy Taxi" is this type of game almost fully realized), it's lost a lot of what made it so appealing in the first place.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    The game itself is lousy.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    This conventional real-time strategy game attempts to follow Alexander the Great's campaign of conquest, but it is marred by sloppy development, factual inaccuracies, and a general failure to capture the scope of what made Alexander so interesting and unique to historians.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    Wildlife Park might have been a fun distraction for theme park fans, but the poor design and execution cripple it in a crowded field of competitors.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    Lacking both the volatile charm and the compelling technical details of the series, it's little more than a halfhearted racing game with some guest appearances by characters and locations you've seen on TV.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    A thoroughly second-rate action game.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    Essentials is anything but.
