    G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra is full of things that make you go "hmm." Why do midlevel checkpoints update your score but not save your game, forcing you to restart from the beginning if both characters die? If you're going to steal from Gears of War, why steal the slow-walking, earpiece-cradling mission updates?

    This Japanese role-playing game is made of equal parts dull combat and insipid story, A Witch's Tale isn't worth the time it takes to play.

    Mass Effect's latest add-on is an insult to fans clamoring for new content.

    This dull physics-based puzzle game is neither charming nor exciting, and most importantly, it isn't fun.

    • 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.

    Mario's latest athletic endeavor lacks the sort of skillful competition that could have made for a compelling challenge.
