    Thanks to poor controls, a paltry list of game modes, and a lack of real-life players not named Rafael Nadal, Rafa Nadal Tennis double-faults in its Nintendo DS debut.

    The remake is packed with clever dialogue, and the HD artwork looks very nice, but there's not enough new gameplay to hide the fact that the original Leisure Suit Larry game was every bit as shallow as its sexually frustrated protagonist. Mr. Laffer makes a terrific jester, but he's not good for a whole lot more.

    Ultimately a shallow, clunky, near-broken mess of a game.

    The free flowing nature of the sport is stifled, and it all comes off as if the developers have never strapped a board to their feet and headed down the mountain, let alone hung out with a crew of real riders to find out where they're coming from.

    Onechanbara makes zombie-slaying women boring.

    Dark Horizon is an improvement on its Tarr Chronicles predecessor, but that isn't saying much.

    Samurai Warriors 3 is yet another unimaginative entry in a series that became outdated years ago.

    Experienced and discerning gamers, however, would do well to steer clear of BLSC, as the game is simplistic and light.

    They are flat retreads of their forebears at best, and stripped down expansion packs at their worst.

    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.

    Exploitable enemy AI and finicky physics spoil Shinobido 2's stealthy aspirations.

    Too much motion-sensing and some dumb design decisions make Indiana Jones' latest adventure a chore.

    The battles in Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi look intense and exciting, but dull mechanics prevent the gameplay from channeling any of that excitement.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    This is a game that isn't particularly terrible, but the derivative, uninspired gameplay and production certainly don't make this an attractive title.

    You're in the Movies is a box-office bust, despite featuring your own recognizable stars.

    Monochroma is a game that I wanted to enjoy, and I thought it would be worthwhile even halfway through the adventure. But things really go off the rails as you push onward, with most of the later puzzles demanding precision that's just not possible.

    Shrek 2 for the PC is strictly for kids, though considering its clunky controls and short running time, it's not even a terribly good game for them.
    • 55 Metascore

    Those looking for the Frogger they grew up with should probably look somewhere else.

    The frustratingly bad physics in Totaled! make the game a thoroughly unentertaining experience.

    Ultimately, RLH is a game that simply wasn't good when it was first released, and even with slightly better graphics, a new level, and Xbox Live content, it still isn't a good game.

    It's advisable for both general enthusiasts and die-hard hockey fans to avoid this game for fear of losing interest in the sport.

    A Bomberman game without multiplayer is hardly a Bomberman game at all.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 43 Critic Score
    A dull and largely forgettable experience, which, considering the quality of the previous three Digimon World games, really shouldn't be too big of a surprise to anyone.

    Brutal difficulty is the only thing that sets this WWII real-time strategy game apart from its predecessors.

    Unfortunately, Prye's adventures aren't anywhere near as exciting as they might sound because of the game's poor control, its awkward camera angles, and its simplistic and repetitive story.

    There’s enjoyment to be found within the game’s combat, but it’s just not worth stomaching the tedious design and perverse activities to find the pearl inside.

    Fails in almost every department, from graphics to gameplay and everything in between.

    The frustrating controls ruin what could have otherwise been a standout conversion of one of the Dreamcast's more unique games.

    Alien Spidy's cool momentum-based platforming is both unique and uniquely infuriating.

    Woolfe barely comes into its own before it's over, with the entire game taking about 2–3 hours tops. It's apparently only half of a two-part experience, but the halfway mark of the game doesn't show much promise for the second.
