    Raven Squad is a monotonous, short and somewhat ugly FPS that is hard to recommend to anyone that isn’t looking for the interactive equivalent of a Steven Seagal flick.

    The game’s potential is held back by the game’s crippling controls, awful camera and lackluster game modes. Do yourself a favor and skip this game completely.

    If you’re looking for "Tony Hawk Pro Skater" for a much younger crowd or really love the show, Simpsons Skateboarding will surely disappoint.

    The fighting engine, or lack thereof, really hurts this game and makes it very frustrating and unplayable.

    Terminated on Arrival. It's so slow and mundane that you won't even feel like you're playing a game that's based on the movie.

    Globs of Doom could have been that extraordinary kid’s title and SpongeBob SquarePants game but it just falls short in almost every way. It’s also not a very fun game despite the variety of characters and co-op gameplay. If your young gamer loves all of these characters I highly recommend a rental instead.

    If you play games at all, you'll instantly see this game for the unbalanced, unfair and unattractive mess that it is. [May 2007, p.77]

    Plagued by a series of problems that go way beyond the awful controls, the action just isn’t fun or rewarding enough to keep gamers wanting to see this through to the end.

    It's not shocking that a movie game is terrible, but it is somewhat surprising since Harry Potter's last two games have been fairly good. The uninspired levels, horrendous shooting mechanics, lackluster controls, and a tacked-on Kinect mode make this one Harry Potter piece of merchandise fans should stay far, far away from.

    If this were a $5 download via the PlayStation Store, Pocket Pool might not be the worst way to get your kicks while taking a trip. It’d still be a torture of a game though. At any higher dollar amount, it isn’t worth approaching.

    Fans might be able to eke some pleasure from this game despite the overwhelming flaws. Anyone else likely won’t be able to see past the repetitive, irritating gameplay, frustrating camera, and broken controls.

    There’s very little to like about the Nintendo Wii version of Legend of the Dragon and the fact that very little effort was placed in making the Wii technology fit the game is reason enough to skip this one.

    Quantum Theory looks and feels like an anime-inspired fan mod of Gears of War 1. While I'm a devout supporter of doing things right the first time, I wouldn't mind seeing a sequel that steps up its game, makes better use of Filena, and learns from the critical feedback the original received (which is nearly insurmountable at this point).

    If all you seek is the novelty factor and don't care about gameplay, My Horse and Me is a galloping time. Not a good or great time, but a time nonetheless. If any form of interactive entertainment is desired, you'll have to jump over many, many hurdles to find it.

    Wow, this game was not what I thought it would be. The original license wasn't an interesting or original idea and the game sadly follows suit.

    There’s a game somewhere among the bugs and glitches that make up Hour of Victory for the Xbox 360 but you’ll never find it seeing as the entire experience feels broken and rushed.

    Playing the different girls as they roll through their adventures is somewhat dulled by repetitive gameplay and specific gaming preferences (you should like fashion and all that entails).

    Sometimes a game is just no fun, this is one of those times.

    The gameplay amounts to ferociously throwing your arms through the air as the unreliable motion controls keep you from ever pulling off specific punches. Playing it once will leave you with no urge to come back for more.

    Escape From Bug Island could very easily be a long-lost Dreamcast title, with hastily-added motion controls. Were that the case, I think I’d rather it had stayed lost; I can’t even imagine anyone enjoying this.

    A boring party game that lacks the pace and originality of its genre counterparts, Tamagotchi: Party On should be avoided at all costs.

    A considerably flawed game from start to finish, the PSP version of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen just disappoints in every possible way.

    Dead Space Ignition offers far more frustration and tedium than enjoyment, and fails to expand upon the universe in any meaningful way.

    If you must play Pimp My Ride, try the 360 version. Play this version and you’ll put yourself through a lot of unnecessary frustration.

    Torino 2006 doesn't come close to bringing gamers a true sense of what the winter games are all about nor will they feel like this is a game that makes even the dullest events seem fun.

    Look, I haven't played a game like this in a long, long time. I am literally sad because it seemed like it could have at least been a solid shooter. But it fails on almost every level.

    Sadly, The Shield: The Game plays like a bad episode of the show and there is hardly anything here that will entertain fans of the show or gamers who are looking for a gritty action game.

    If you or someone you know enjoys the very low-tech content of very low-end Web games that were designed to play on any PC made in the last 15 years, this might be just the racing game you’ve been craving. If, however, you purchase DS games expecting a DS experience, keep driving – this is not a stop you’ll want to make.

    Power Gig had the potential to rise up above its competition, but badly designed hardware, a poorly imitated interface, a less than stellar set list, non-engaging gameplay that nowhere near mimics real guitar playing, and, most of all, empty promises of playing real guitar, have left it to be appropriately nicknamed as "Rock Revolution 2: Road to Nowhere."

    Really disappointing [gameplay], poor controls, poorly designed missions, poor execution.
