    Death By Cube is an amateurish two-stick shooter with a lot of design flaws.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    This slapdash role-playing game shows some promise early, but quickly becomes tedious and frustrating.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Shallow and repetitive gameplay, dull visuals, and overused poor-quality film assets put this game in the failed-superhero category.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Lots of comparable options come cheaper and offer more fulfilling shoot-'em-up action than this retread.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    This overly simple shooting gallery is a rip-off.

    Pure Football may be an arcade take on the sport, but that doesn't excuse its repetitive gameplay and general lack of game modes.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Good songs can't save this poor attempt at a rhythm party game from being a dull and repetitive experience.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    This wacky action game doesn't contain any of the fun hinted at by its goofy premise.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A decent strategic foundation is rendered all but meaningless by horrific bugs, missing features, a poor interface, and plenty of other defects.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Imprecise motion controls ruin all five of the sports featured in this disappointing collection.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    It lacks character; bare-bones quests and audiovisual repetition fail to instill a sense of fantasy wonder. It lacks cohesion; communication failures, economic oddities, and stringent limitations leave you constantly directionless. And it lacks joy; the abysmal interface and boring monsters make it a struggle to stay invested.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Dumb enemies, repetitive levels, and downright unappealing looks makes this a theory that's not worth testing.
    • 33 Metascore

    MorphX buries its few good ideas under a pile of annoyances like incredibly tough difficulty and ancient graphics.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Unbound Saga is one brutally boring brawler.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    FlingSmash's reliance on a very basic, flawed control scheme saps most of the fun from all of your flinging and smashing.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Flawed motion controls and baffling design choices sap all the fun from this goofy martial-arts-themed brawler.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    This small collection of minigames offers little for even the most fervent Dead Space fan.

    This small collection of minigames offers little for even the most fervent Dead Space fan.

    A joyless campaign and brain-dead units make this emergency management real-time strategy unworthy of resuscitation.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Mario's latest athletic endeavor lacks the sort of skillful competition that could have made for a compelling challenge.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Terrible motion controls and poor visuals sap all the fun out of this poor excuse for a tennis game.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A lesson in boredom. Without a jump command, the platforming elements are all but wasted, while the spell-flinging portions of the game are equally forgettable.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Minority Report just isn't fun to play, and all because of a horrible targeting system.
    • 50 Metascore

    xXx
    Like so many other motion picture adaptations, the game lacks the special effects and dialogue that make the film entertaining.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Doesn't improve upon Battlebots: Beyond the BattleBox in any meaningful way, and it's disturbing that Majesco is trying to pass off this collection of bug fixes as a brand-new game.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Cruddy hit detection and poor hazard placement ruin this otherwise decent action romp.

    Ironically, while this penguin-themed puzzle game seems geared toward younger players, it may be too challenging for the average kid.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    It's noticeably better looking than the lackluster PlayStation 2 version, but it still has its fair share of problems...[It's] not fun.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Unlike EA's game ["NBA Street"], Street Hoops is ugly, shallow, and incredibly dull.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The very definition of a stripped-down budget title, as practically every aspect that would make a game fun or interesting is missing.
