    This is not a fun game, and that's the cornerstone of all games, fun.

    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 is not a good DS game by any account. There's no effort behind it, the storytelling is weak, and the presentation is some of the least inspired on the handheld.

    Spelunker HD will have you giving up way before finding any great treasure deep down in the creepy mines. If anything, this latest retro remake is a reminder that not every classic game deserves an HD makeover.

    The dancing controls are lousy, the visuals are too lame for their own good and the lack of options (or anything resembling information regarding Jackson's legacy) are disappointing. Stick with a Greatest Hits album instead and tell this game to "beat it."

    The gameplay in Wrestlemania XXI is lousy, with unresponsive controls, boneheaded AI, and frustrating hit-detection issues, making the game absolutely no fun to play.

    Fans of Edgar Allan Poe or those who like a "twist" to historical fact might find Midnight Mysteries to their liking, but it's hard to recommend the game to anyone else.

    Gameplay quickly becomes an exercise in futility and patience. The control of the game is very slow and unresponsive, further hurt from the inability to discern most wrestlers from the next.

    To call Battles of Ardania an expansion is a large overstatement. From map layouts, units and even music, everything seems to be recycled from the original game and Kingmaker.

    If you’re looking for another Wii Sports, stop. You won’t find it, and it certainly won’t be under the guise of a Winter Sports title. As much fun as tumbling down a ski slope, this snowy sequel epitomizes Wii mediocrity.

    The game wants to be an all-out action extravaganza, when in reality the end product is full of technical issues and poor gameplay.

    Even after you've succeeded in mastering the ridiculous controls, the game never really feels like a racing game should.

    Dream Pinball 3D is closer to a nightmare than a dream.

    Hardly worth a second glance, Ghost Recon 2 for the GameCube is just not a worthwhile game. Go for the Xbox version, and don't look back.

    Cars is an incredibly boring, sometimes frustrating, waste of a good DS cartridge. Do your kid a favor and buy them Mario Kart DS instead. They may scream and holler a bit, but after they compare it to their friend’s copy of Cars they will thank you.

    Button-mashing is strictly generic and offers nothing new for next-gen gamers. The attempts at quick-time events fall flat.

    With a weak story, awkward puzzles and a cliché environment, Alida makes for one weak adventure game experience. Not only that, but everything here has been done (and much better) a decade ago.

    More of a novelty item than an actual game.

    Though I could not find a stopwatch I would say that I spent around a quarter of my time in the confines of the load screen.

    Sluggish, unresponsive, and slow. Luckily, all you got to do to win is constantly hammer on the “shoot” button.

    Though its not the worst game I've ever played, its certainly not one I will ever play again.

    Lord of Arcana commits the cardinal sin of game design: Beyond being painfully lacking in variety or original ideas, it outright wastes your time, and then punishes you for your determination to not give up.

    When not crashing, stuttering, or burdening you with menus, Elemental threatens to be interesting.

    Crime Lab isn't the worst DS game we've seen, as the mini-games do manage to keep it from being a cold case. That said, the weak writing and otherwise plodding gameplay make it a mystery not worth tackling.

    Runs out of gas quickly and has all the personality of a pair of dirty mud flaps.

    The repetitious battles and limited tech tree will leave RTS gamers wanting, and the story is contrived at best, so Trek fans will be disappointed.

    JAWS Unleashed could’ve been a great game, given it’s unique premise and experienced developer. Unfortunately, the game is too buggy and has too many issues to make it one to recommend.

    Sorry, Rockin' Android. While we respect your intentions, we simply can't recommend Crescent Pale Mist. Its overbearing list of frustrations and lacking visuals and sound will leave you feeling red instead of pale.

    Cross Edge not only fails to be a compelling Japanese RPG but it makes for one seriously awkward and uninspiring game. Skipping this game isn’t a bad idea unless you can look past the many things wrong with this game.

    The sluggish controls and slow-as-molasses gameplay act as a virus that kills off any excitement this game could have had. Missions are boring and extremely repetitive.

    Unbound Saga has a tempting premise and a snazzy style, complete with visual sound effects, but the brawling action can't hold a candle to Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, or even Turtles in Time Re-Shelled. As a fan of the genre, it saddens me to say that the best thing about Unbound Saga is the unusually cool soundtrack.
