    There’s a decent combat system hidden beneath a pointless story that only serves as masturbation material for its target audience. It’s utterly shameful, and is to be avoided.

    It'll need serious steroids and gym work before it can be considered a contender.

    Without doubt the worst Mega Man game ever created. It lacks fun, lacks skill and it lacks substance, and will have you hooked for all of 10 minutes.

    Due to its target audience, it's understandable that EA Playground is easy, but it's inexcusable to have games that are only made challenging by their bad design.

    The game play is too repetitive and a combination of poor controls and poor visuals make it frustrating to complete the levels. It's hard to imagine many people, whatever their ages, having the supreme patience to actually sit through more than a few hours of this game.

    Gamestyle is sure that die-hard, DS owning Potter fans will buy this game, and maybe even enjoy it a tiny bit, regardless of what we say here. For the rest of us though, this is one to steer clear of. Repetitive, tedious wandering and only marginally entertaining mini-games do not a proper game make.

    When developers start stripping away essentials because the hardware cannot handle the strain, you must question the reasoning behind it. Was it really worth subjecting a world of gamers to this mess that barely resembles the original for the sake of a quick fare?

    Although, I wish I couldn’t go “ooh”. I wish I went “Bloody hell! Everything’s a God Damn blur!” instead.

    You cannot criticise for Sony for trying something new by supporting this endeavour, but sadly .detuned only scratches the surface of what may have been possible.

    xXx
    A shoddy piece of license work with flashes of potential (which the film has in bundles) but too much is gaming by numbers, and overall it leaves you cold.

    Really, The Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer is a mess and a frighteningly terrible video game.

    Is there anything good about Alone in the Dark? The fire effects are stunning and the music theme is quite good. Other than that though, nothing.
    • 51 Metascore

    Try hitting your head against a brick wall for about half an hour instead.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Convincing voice-acting and a humorous (if puerile) script cannot do enough to disguise the fact that this is an utterly vacuous game.

    Quite frankly, Superman Returns on the DS is abysmal. If you consider paying for it, or even asking for it for Christmas, you deserve to have a huge slab of radioactive green Kryptonite enter the Earth's atmosphere and smack you right on the head.

    The Xbox 360 certainly needs more titles from the Japanese development community, but Bullet Witch is far from a show of support.

    The very kindest you could say about Conduit 2 is that it is a guilty pleasure. If you enjoy this, you have a lot to feel guilty about.
    • 55 Metascore

    It’s all pointless though because the writers of the TV show have since said that this game doesn’t even take part in the official chronology, making this nothing more than glorified fan fiction.

    As expected Warriors Orochi can only be an attractive proposition to dedicated fans of either series or even then only the most loyal of elite.
    • 38 Metascore

    In conclusion there is absolutely nothing to recommend about this Spy vs Spy.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    The combination of uninspiring sound, graphic and game design all add up to a title that is best left sitting on a shelf as a message to the game's developer and publisher that gamers will not buy sub-par products.

    A shocking game; a turgid stinking pool of primordial ooze that would take millions of years to evolve into something that is worth using as a doorstop, let alone playing.

    Warriors Orochi 2 is awful and it couldn’t be any worse if it made your Xbox 360 explode.
    • 46 Metascore

    This is absolutely awful. The Sonic franchise has been dragged through the dirt so often, and this serves to add insult to injury. This game is utterly bland, soulless and broken beyond repair.

    So while this could be construed as the first Wii budget release, to date it’s certainly the worst release for the system.

    The game is as ugly as the Neanderthal wrestlers in it. Despite this I’ve still noticed it slows down at times.

    Tornado is one of the worst DS games we’ve played in quite a while. An interesting concept ruined by an impenetrable single player and a crippling control scheme. Avoid like the plague.

    Without any decent multiplayer or online support, it's boring, tedious, and wholly without merit.
    • 20 Metascore
    • 10 Critic Score
    It has no redeeming aspect except that thankfully the pain is short-lived, but then again you should heed our warning and avoid this title at all costs.

    If the game had continued to be developed as Gladiator A.D. it might not have sold but at least that seemed like a project the developers could have been proud of. This game absolutely reeks of a rushed development cycle after the change in tone in pursuit of sales.
