    It's like an X-Files primer, filled with cute references to events from the show and following a plot that the devout will be able to predict within the first 15 minutes of the game.

    If you're drawn to this title because of the Lego name, just know that there are better futuristic racing experiences to be had.

    It may sport a literary pedigree, but 80 Days is little more than a clunky adventure game with a bad sense of humor and lots of bugs.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 51 Critic Score
    It doesn't take long to get over the novelty of the included steering wheel, and beyond that this is a very unremarkable racing game that isn't much fun.

    This awkwardly designed and rather ugly-looking game can by no means be recommended to everyone, nor is it necessarily suitable for fans of other GBA role-playing games.
    • 54 Metascore

    It's fast-paced, it's gritty, and it's got style to spare, but El Matador is also one of the most infuriatingly unbalanced shooters in years.
    • 53 Metascore

    Purge still offers gameplay that is fairly unique. Unfortunately, balance issues, poor level design, and a lack of online players keep it from fully realizing its potential.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 51 Critic Score
    A novel idea, but in the end, it doesn't have enough variation to make it worthwhile. This one is only for the hard-core WCW fan.

    Those who do not have an interest in the minutiae of the sport of kings will likely find the gameplay to be dry and overly statistics-focused. Still, if you're looking for a change of pace in your racing game, there is certainly nothing else on the market quite like it.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 51 Critic Score
    An initially thrilling but ultimately tedious exercise that offers precious few innovations and even fewer reasons to continue playing once you've run through its tracks a first time.

    After you play Taz Wanted and struggle with its terrible camera angles and repetitive tasks, you'll probably agree that all the authentic cartoon characters in the world couldn't make this game fun.

    Infuriating controls and frustrating platforming sections are among Dawn of Mana's many shortcomings.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 51 Critic Score
    The interface and poor control are bigger enemies than the game's Iraqi soldiers ever are, and in the end, this is a game you can surely live without.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 51 Critic Score
    It's difficult to care about the story or any of the characters in it when the game doesn't have any voice acting to lend personality to it.
    • 71 Metascore

    In some ways Styx feels like a stealth game from an earlier era, but one that's more dated then vintage. It tries to pick up a few tricks from more modern games in the genre, but much of its core wouldn't have been out of place alongside the earlier Tenchu or Metal Gear Solid games.

    It's a shame that Anno 2205 takes the game so far into the future and does so little of substance with that premise. Not much has changed from Anno 2070, and what has is almost always worse. Anno 2205 still has a sturdy core of satisfying city planning and construction, but so much has been cut out as to make the game barely worth playing at all.

    Unfortunately, the multiplayer is also an unmitigated disaster.
    • 53 Metascore

    It sports a new title, but Bust-A-Move 3000 is identical to the "Super Bust-A-Move" that was released on the PlayStation 2 in 2000.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    This "xtremely" forgettable first-person shooter doesn't excel at anything.
    • 53 Metascore

    It's gorgeous to look at and fun for a short while, but Akaneiro: Demon Hunters is an unvaried grind that wears out its appeal long before the level cap.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 suffers from attempting to cover far too much ground for the core mechanics to handle.
    • 73 Metascore

    A tiring game. It's taxing without being rewarding, like doing a mile on a stationary bike and discovering that you only burned away calories from one bite of your lunch burrito. The game gets frustrating quickly due to repetitive obstacles and there's not much incentive to dig into a game that won't give you that agency.

    Tenchu: Shadow Assassins attempts to sneak in the footsteps of its stealthy predecessors but ends up a stumbling, bungling mess.

    An inferior copy of a classic, Swashbucklers isn't worth your time.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    This undemanding fighter may be good enough for anime fans, but the game is too simple for fighting fans and too self-referential for anyone else.

    My World, My Way needs more than a charming exterior to sweep you off your feet.

    You have to wonder how much time was even spent on prepping this game for release, since 2012 was believed to be the last in the series until a surprise January announcement that the series was back from the dead.

    It's not too much to ask for a game to deliver both fan service and solid gameplay. It's just more than this particular game can manage.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    For whatever progress that the series makes in this third installment, it's undone by lackluster gameplay and poor execution.

    Luxuria Superbia's unusual premise roused my interest early, but the game's resistance to offering anything new beyond its simple concept hinders it from finding a satisfying rhythm.
