    This alternate-history shooter is proof that an interesting premise can't compensate for boring and broken gameplay.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    The new content in this World in Conflict expansion is short and not so sweet.

    Pop
    Though Pop can be fun in short bursts, it isn't worth 700 Wii points ($7).
    • 37 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    It's got plenty of cute Tamagotchis, but it's short on depth and is seriously lacking in the fun department.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    In setting out to make a wrestling game for people who don't like wrestling games, THQ has turned in a game that nobody will like.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    This shooter is a painful exercise in pattern memorization plus frustrating trial-and-error gameplay.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 45 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.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    Varied track design isn't enough to save Wheels of Destruction from a trip to the junkyard.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    Its average gameplay and uninteresting levels create a game that doesn't warrant attention.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    World Racing 2 makes a couple of key improvements on its predecessor, but it's still a substandard effort.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    When the first wave of frustration passes, you'll realize that Conflict Zone is a subpar RTS game whose few good ideas just don't add up.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    Brutal difficulty is the only thing that sets this WWII real-time strategy game apart from its predecessors.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    Mage Knight Apocalypse is a sloppy attempt to adapt the collectible tabletop miniatures game to a dungeon-crawler format.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    Easy to learn, easy to play, and easy to afford, Ford Mustang: The Legend Lives is a barely tolerable, exceedingly temporary fix for the financially restricted racing beginner.

    Easy to learn, easy to play, and easy to afford, Ford Mustang: The Legend Lives is a barely tolerable, exceedingly temporary fix for the financially restricted racing beginner.

    Hard Truck: Apocalypse takes an interesting premise and strips away all but the most mundane elements, leaving you to drive down a long and unexciting road to nowhere.
    • 37 Metascore

    Over the years, the series has shown its flashes of playability, but Sarge's War isn't one of them. This game never shows anything above the most minimal of efforts, and even then, it seems as though you're being entertained as if by accident.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    Regardless of the validity of the license, D.I.C.E. the game is a dull, repetitive, and often frustrating experience that should be avoided.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    Its graphics are at the bottom of the Game Boy Advance totem pole, none of the hardware's interesting features like multiplayer are utilized, and the one-player mode can be finished in one day.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    Eragon relies entirely on tedious, unenthusiastic gameplay that's way too shallow to sustain interest for more than a few minutes.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    So little has been done to jazz up the game's presentation that only those who long to hear more abuse spew from Anne Robinson's curled lips will find enough here to justify spending 20 bucks.

    • 44 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    This version of the game takes what should have been a wide-open, tactical experience in a massive metropolis and turns it into just another run-and-gun shooter that ramrods you through narrow corridors.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    After the thrill of flying around Metropolis wears off, Superman Returns is nothing more than a below-average, repetitive movie tie-in that doesn't even do the movie tie-in part well.
    • 52 Metascore

    Meant to be dark and atmospheric. It's set in a strange amusement park. And when it makes sense, it can be fairly creepy. Unfortunately, it doesn't make sense very often.

    Eragon relies entirely on tedious, unenthusiastic gameplay that's way too shallow to sustain interest for more than a few minutes.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    The action here is a complete mess that can't be salvaged, even with copious amounts of fan service and esoteric references to the Gundam universe.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    This concept itself obviously isn't a terribly original one, and Shattered Universe's gameplay mechanics are equally pedestrian in design, hopelessly trying to mirror bigger, better space combat games.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    Has absolutely no significance for anyone but hard-core Bust-A-Move completists.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    Unlike the entries from Microsoft and Rockstar, though, The Italian Job is almost completely devoid of both flavor and interesting gameplay, and the whole thing feels like it was slapped together in a supreme hurry to cash in on the release of the film.
