    Some distinguishing features give this shooter a touch of class, but bugs and execution flaws cast a long shadow over Call of Juarez: The Cartel.

    • 50 Critic Score
    Ancient Shadow doesn't bring anything new to the table, and, what's worse, none of the problems from the previous games have been fixed or improved.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    There's nothing inherently broken with the game, and until it fizzles out at the end the story's not bad, but the gameplay is so contrived and repetitive that it's unlikely anyone will garner much enjoyment from the game.

    For a game whose main gameplay component is building up your characters, Digimon World 3 makes the process needlessly complicated and annoying.

    A few bright spots prove that this clumsy, unsatisfying film tie-in could have been much better.

    Dreamkiller is, through and through, a budget game. The visuals are colorful but look decidedly old, the action is as shallow as it gets in a modern shooter, and the sound effects lack oomph. The premise is neat, and some of the enemy designs are legitimately awesome. But if you've been dreaming of some old-fashioned twitch shooting, you should return to the old standbys and let this sleeping dog lie.

    • 27 Critic Score
    A second-rate interpretation of the extreme sports genre, and it rigidly follows the conventions set out by games before it, rather than offering any innovations.

    If you're up for a little bit of trivia with a dirty sense of humor and you have three like-minded friends, The Guy Game won't let you down.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 35 Critic Score
    Its extremely short life span, accompanied by its lukewarm presentation, ensures that few players will get more than a couple of hours' worth of enjoyment out of the home version.

    This frustratingly bad first-person shooter is not the stuff legends are made of.
    • 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.

    Poor controls and dumb enemies ground this arcade air combat game, making it more chicken than bird of prey.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 46 Critic Score
    The game suffers from a variety of problems that range from poor sound to bad level design, and in the end, they keep Monster Jam from being the least bit enjoyable.

    • 52 Critic Score
    Just another shallow party game.
    • 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.

    • 43 Critic Score
    This 3D adventure game does expand on the movie's story, but it's also uninteresting and repetitive.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 63 Critic Score
    Attempts to deliver some "Prince of Persia"-like acrobatics, but its sharp graphics are offset by bad control, weak voice work, and shoddy gameplay.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 35 Critic Score
    The combat in Hellboy gets repetitive before the first level ends and never presents a challenge. This is a boring, bland game.

    • 45 Critic Score
    An obtuse interface makes MLB Front Office Manager bewildering even to baseball-sim veterans.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    This overly simple shooting gallery is a rip-off.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 41 Critic Score
    World Racing 2 makes a couple of key improvements on its predecessor, but it's still a substandard effort.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    This motion-controlled bowling game is a passable re-creation of the sport provided you ignore its optional Move support.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The Harry Potter film tie-ins end on a low note with this short, tedious, and conceptually vapid cover shooter.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Venetica has too many flaws in just about every facet to make for an engrossing role-playing experience.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Proves once again that the name of a popular movie and even the likeness and voice talent of its star aren't nearly enough to make an otherwise bland and uninteresting game seem enjoyable.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 32 Critic Score
    Sometimes the game can lock your system up entirely. It's really a shame that Rebels: Prison Escape is so buggy. When it's working, it isn't half bad, but you should never have to say "when it's working" about a game you've paid good money for.

    • 33 Critic Score
    The frustrating gameplay will turn even the most eager gamer's experience sour after a few levels.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    The combat is overly simplistic, the cel-shaded presentation is unattractive and unrefined, and the game is brimming with collision-detection and physics bugs.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 47 Critic Score
    All the wonder of the Bionicle universe has been bled dry by a vapid design and an atrocious camera system.

    • 46 Critic Score
    Fans of Bubble Bobble, puzzle games, dinosaurs, or fun will be sorely disappointed.
