    It's buggy, the gameplay modes are shallow, and the graphics don't save it.

    This disappointing strategy game isn't nearly as engaging as the Discovery Channel show it's based on.

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

    Diabolical Pitch is ridiculous, but in all the wrong ways.

    Sloppy controls and occasional glitches make Ratatouille one kid-unfriendly platformer.

    Perhaps the most disappointing (and surprising) thing about World Tour Soccer 2006 is that it's vastly inferior to the recently released PSP World Tour Soccer game, which not only plays a better game of soccer but also features a style-based challenge mode that's infinitely more enjoyable than that on the PS2.

    Deadliest Warrior: Legends may make you laugh for a little while, but its sloppy fighting is dead on arrival.

    This basic brawler fails to capture the unique character or high-speed action of its televised counterpart.

    Here's the thing: lack of accuracy in the controls is the whole point of Surgeon Simulator. That is the joke. However, when it comes to the difference between fun and frustrating, it's a matter of degrees. Playing Surgeon Simulator on PS4 is like listening to someone stumble through the telling of what could have been a hilarious wisecrack.

    One brutally boring brawler.

    This multiplayer-focused, handheld distillation of the Dynasty Warriors formula is barely entertaining enough to sustain its two-hour length.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The Warriors series continues to set the standard for repetitive button mashing in this dull, ugly sequel.

    Dance Factory's main feature is the ability to generate dance steps to your own music CDs. There's just one problem: It doesn't really work.

    • 48 Critic Score
    An uninspiring puzzle game with an equally lifeless plot.

    Unlike EA's game, Street Hoops is shallow and incredibly dull.

    But with so many major flaws, any of the game's strengths are hard to find and appreciate for any length of time.

    The game's overall lack of content makes it one of the last things you'd want to spend 40 bucks on. Even though it manages to capture the occasional burst of Sonic speed, there isn't enough content in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity to keep you entertained for more than two or three laps.

    Only grind-loving, masochistic role players need apply.

    It's just too bad this solid gameplay engine is wrapped in such a shallow, ugly package.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    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.

    Summer Athletics captures none of the passion and excitement of summer athletics.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 47 Critic Score
    Excitement quickly fades, leaving you with a game with unresponsive controls and lackluster action.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    Unless fumbling your way through half-baked minigames to win some virtual stuffed animals sounds like fun to you, you're better off leaving this overpriced collection on the shelf.

    Clever comic-book trappings aren't enough to save Kung-Fu High Impact from frustrating motion controls and boring action.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 31 Critic Score
    It's buggy, it's ill-conceived, and it's even totally unplayable on some systems in its current state. If you think Bet on Soldier is a recipe for a game worth skipping, you're exactly right.

    • 28 Critic Score
    A train wreck of a game that has no direction, no technical merit, and little appeal except as a game design house of horrors and a showcase for some good music by Stewart Copeland.

    While this version does have a small number of new tracks and trucks, as well as a handful of sundry tweaks, it also has the same unimpressive graphics and inconsistent physics of its Xbox counterpart.

    • 35 Critic Score
    It's better to walk the plank than to sail the seas of the boring and buggy Pirates of Black Cove.

    "Dance Dance Revolution" fans might find a bit to like here, but the game is so mind-numbingly simple that anyone familiar with Konami's game will whip through Rhythm N'Groove in less than an hour.

    Pokemon Rumble Blast is an overly simplistic, repetitive action game.
