    These flashes of satisfaction aren't enough to hold up a game that’s mediocre at best and vexing at worst. Together with a host of minor annoyances, they add up to a long, dull stint with a bad game from a great franchise that deserves far better treatment.

    If you have cherished memories of playing The Simpsons Arcade Game, keep holding on to them and ignore this port.

    While leaving the quick save feature out may seem like a slight oversight, the reality is that it changes the game into a frustrating exercise in trial and error.

    Scratches is dull, ugly, a bit short, and a perfect example of exactly why traditional adventure games have fallen out of favor.

    While UFO: Aftershock improves on its predecessor in some ways, there's just far too much wrong with this copy of the classic X-COM alien-hunting strategy series to recommend it.

    What starts out as a simple but entertaining aerial jaunt quickly becomes monotonous and shallow, making it hard to justify its price tag.

    The game itself isn't terrible, but unless you are absolutely aching to exercise the online capabilities of your Dreamcast, there is really no reason to pick up this game.

    Simply, Ride 2 doesn't make a convincing case for more motorcycle games to be produced. Yes, it is a genre that is underrepresented in comparison to its car-based siblings, but the level of expected quality across racing games as a whole is so high that anything other than an outstanding release is impossible to recommend.

    Many of the interesting concepts in T:A llose their appeal shortly after the umpteenth quest to help some tortured soul in town.

    How far can cinematics get you when the gameplay sandwiched between them is so poorly paced, so utterly misconceived, so reliant on stick wriggles and button tapping? There's a place for contextual prompts and cinematic storytelling in video games, but Resident Evil 6 is a mishmash of elements put together without any sense of care or direction.

    Questionable design choices aside, the problem with almost every aspect of The Godfather II is simply that it feels unfinished.

    While it's not a complete waste, Mercenaries is a disappointment, and it left me second-guessing my allies in war.

    RtCW has always been a pretty uninteresting single-player game, and without solid multiplayer to cushion the blow, the PlayStation 2 version of the game is a real failure.

    3 on 3 NHL Arcade is overpriced and annoying.

    Tedious quests and little payoff make this Korean massively multiplayer online game a real grind.

    Disney Universe isn't much of a Disney product--nor much of a game, either.

    Memento Mori is a plodding adventure that makes the world of art forgeries and ancient mysteries seem dull.

    On paper, then, Ride 2 is an exciting proposition that bundles the promises of aspirational game design with the raw power and fun associated with motorbikes. Unfortunately, those promises are broken and the resulting game falls flat. Unless you're so enamoured with two-wheeled machines that you simply can't help but pick yourself up a copy, you should wait for a new contender to try its hand at delivering a biking game of this scope.

    If this is what immortality is about, then you have to wonder why anyone would bother to guard it in the first place.

    Bankshot Billiards 2 doesn't play a great game of pool, and as the most expensive Xbox Live Arcade game available, it represents lousy value for the money.

    While the game does a lot of things right, severe graphical issues surface at almost every turn and essentially nullify its strong points, leaving behind a game with lots of untapped potential.

    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.

    Shallow, mindless hack-and-slash action makes this a crushingly tedious slog through an anachronistic version of 16th-century Japan.

    Despite its attempts to add a unique spin to the genre, Daemonica is generally a tedious and unappealing adventure game.

    Tetris Worlds does what countless iterations of the game haven't managed to do in the past--it actually breaks Tetris.

    Excruciating difficulty makes this latest addition to the Desperados family one frustrating trip back to the Wild West.

    Though Pop can be fun in short bursts, it isn't worth 700 Wii points ($7).
