    Limited licences, stripped features, and disappointing presentation make Rugby World Cup 2011 disappointing to even the most ardent fans of the sport.

    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.

    The average gamer is going to have a hard time looking past the game's generally poor production and repetitive gameplay.

    Unfortunately, after a few hours of play, it quickly becomes apparent that the only thing undone by the Grinch is your own personal satisfaction.

    First-person shooters and real-time strategies are more at home on the PC because they require a mouse and keyboard to be enjoyed to their fullest extent, and Conflict Zone on the Dreamcast is a prime example of why this is the case.

    Jaws Unleashed was a truly awful game on consoles, and it's no better six months later on the PC.

    Centipede and Millipede were arcade classics, but bad control and lame "evolved" modes make this package a stinker.

    True to its title, this fantasy action game will make you furious.

    Moebius: Empire Rising starts with an interesting idea, but the plot never takes off. Some moments may briefly grab your interest, but disappointing puzzles, shallow characters, and tedious methods behind investigations keep the game feeling lethargic all the way to its uninspiring climax. Instantly forgettable, this game is better off lost to time.

    WALL-E's finicky camera and repetitive gameplay make this one lousy robot adventure.

    Knack's downfall is that it focuses entirely on combat, but doesn't offer enough variety or depth within its system to compel you onward.

    For Shadowbane's population of player-versus-player aficionados, the expansion doesn't seem to do much, nor does it do enough to compel new players to get into the game.

    Having to deal with Rogue States' frustrating AI is a bit like playing a multiplayer game with some guy who keeps breaking up the game by walking away from his computer to grab a snack from the kitchen.

    Though Prince Caspian is not without its charms, the game never lives up to its potential and ends up being too boring and repetitive to live up to the exciting tale it's based on.

    Not only a poorly realized party game, it's also a boring one to boot.

    Dragon Fantasy Book II is a pale shadow of the Super Nintendo role-playing games that it is inspired by.

    Sonic finds shallow, frustrating gameplay awaiting him in the legendary realm of King Arthur.

    While much of Duke Nukem Forever is embarrassingly bad--the kind of game you point and laugh at--its biggest problem is that it's so tedious.

    Like a one million-horsepower sucker punch to the good feelings we've all suddenly developed toward Astro Boy games, however, the second release, Sonic Team's Astro Boy: No Subtitle, turns out to pretty much stink.

    • 36 Critic Score
    An ugly, boring game.

    Minority Report just isn't fun to play, and all because of a horrible targeting system.

    • 48 Critic Score
    The execution is sloppy, and in the end, the game simply feels unfinished.

    Terrible level design, unresponsive controls, and a poor camera are just the beginning of the problems in this awful adventure.

    The gameplay will have you shaking your head in disbelief and disgust as you encounter one badly designed puzzle, maze, or action sequence after another.

    No budget and no new ideas make Gods a less than enthralling action RPG, even with its Penthouse Pet star.

    A few cute moments can't disguise this movie tie-in's biggest problem: its criminally short length.

    • 49 Critic Score
    This excitement always quickly fades, leaving you with a game with unresponsive controls and lackluster action.

    Rainbow Six Critical Hour's brief campaign, poor presentation, and broken multiplayer make it almost impossible to recommend, even to longtime fans.

    This bot-filled sequel delivers all of the mind-numbing monotony we've come to expect from the Dynasty Warriors franchise.

    Terrible motion controls and poor visuals sap all the fun out of this poor excuse for a tennis game.
