    A shameless God of War knockoff without a soul of its own.

    While the swift pace and simplified mechanics might seem appealing, the combat is wholly unsatisfying, the environments are shallow and stifling, and the camera is annoying.

    AMY
    Amy is both a throwback and a runt, with meager cult appeal. The low price point will bait dedicated horror enthusiasts tired of Resident Evil and Dead Space's recent action motifs, but the horror here comes from the code, not the context.

    Iron Man 2 is an unfinished game released to coincide with the flick's debut. There aren't many redeeming values here and you'll get a lot more entertainment value from simply watching the movie.

    007 Legends was clearly rushed to market, and the publisher has such a spotty track record with the franchise, that it's high time for the Bond license to be revoked. Uglier than Jaws and shorter than Nick Nack, 007 Legends doesn't expect you to gawk. Oh no Mr. Bond fans, it expects you to cry. Mission succeeded.

    There's an overwhelming number of issues with Vampire Rain. While we'd like to go into detail about how obviously this game rips off Splinter Cell or how later missions send you through earlier levels backwards, there isn't enough time for all the complaints. Vampire Rain just sucks.

    Maybe one day, they'll come out with a motion-controlled game that captures the frightful excitement and immediacy of being in a fistfight. But that day has yet to come. Not even the grizzled charmer Danny Trejo can salvage this trainwreck.

    Tank! Tank! Tank! is hard to recommend on any level. It's short on content, fails to take much advantage of the Wii U hardware, lacks gameplay depth, and quickly becomes monotonous. It holds some charm for those who enjoy massive creature flicks, but everyone else should steer clear despite its discounted price tag. Launch day surprise, this is not.

    It feels like Activision rubber-stamped this empty shell of a game to make a quick buck. The Vita deserves better. You deserve better.

    A disappointing game with little to offer. The original had its eyes toward the future, very deliberately trying to do things differently. Great remakes are able to adapt, modifying and expanding upon the previous game’s ideas. Here there’s hardly more than recycled concepts and a total failure to capitalize on the first game’s potential. Improvements are few, and many of the updates make things worse instead of better.

    A cold, heartless, and completely uninventive action-puzzle nightmare that we could barely recommend if it were available for free on Xbox Live Arcade.

    This game is an abomination that has absolutely no business being sold at a price point approaching full retail. Like so many other movie adaptations before it, The Rise of Cobra feels like it was meant to capitalize on gullible fans. Lucky for you, we’re here to warn you to steer clear.

    Pocket Pool is just another miserable attempt at using sex to sell a terrible game. While there aren’t many billiard options for the PSP, pool fans should look elsewhere and avoid the embarrassment of their girlfriend catching them playing with it.

    A mindless, pure shoot-em-up game, Terra Wars may be fun for the kids but lacks any depth for mature, savvy gamers. It looks like an old game. It plays like an old game.

    To be a turtle trapped in a game this bad is a truly wretched fate...The game barely functions on a basic level.

    A horrible joke in and of itself, if you buy Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust the joke will be on you. We can think of a good number of other uses for your two hands; and we're using our to give this stinker two thumbs way down.
