    The Nintendo DS is certainly more than capable of bringing flight combat fans a game worthy of the genre but F24 Stealth Fighter is a shining example of how bad implementation could turn a great idea into a badly designed game.

    It really is a shameless excuse to try and cash in on a license. Fans of the series will be disappointed in this brain numbing exercise.

    Above the annoyances and lack of originality is the absence of something every game needs to survive: fun gameplay.

    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.

    The game is a repetitive button masher that requires a shade more intelligence than a potted fern to operate, and players can expect to just keep going through the same thing over and over again screen after screen, level after level, with a few new weapon upgrades that really won’t add any excitement. The collision detection is horrible, and the game loses any fun value after about the first 15 minutes.

    Utterly horrendous in every conceivable aspect.

    Boring in all fronts: graphics, gameplay, audio, etc. There’s not many redeeming values packed into Double D Dodgeball so the best advice is to play the demo and call it good.

    Easily one of the worst FPS I have ever played, and the fact that the game is so short is a second slap in the face. The first is making you feel like you were getting a game that would put hair on your chest.

    There is nothing in this game that represents fun. I hate to say that, but when all the members of the house give it a try and no one could say anything good about it, well, that just seals the deal.

    Really, do yourself a favor and forget this game exists. Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon on the Wii fails to justify anything for the long-running military series with its bad gameplay and bland presentation. It's safe to say this is a ghost of its former self. Wait for Future Soldier.

    After having hernia surgery, a friend (seeing how much pain I was in) turned to me and said, “It could always be worse.” Remember that while playing Godzilla Unleashed: Double Smash. It could always be worse.

    What's Cooking? could have been the next Cooking Mama. But instead of going for video-game supremacy, it took a different route and became an interactive cookbook. If that's what people want from this game, it might just work.

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

    As a Virtual Console release or a tech demo for a bigger project, Chicken Shoot might’ve been iffy – possibly Ok, if it were a buck or two. But as a full title on a Wii disc, it can barely compete with games released 10 years ago, let alone what we have today.

    A badly conceived game that offers no enjoyment.

    I felt bad cause I beat the game up so badly, but then I played it again, and now I don't feel so bad.

    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."

    Tournament of Legends is a mess of glitches, incompetent gameplay, and unfulfilled ideas. It is an insult to fighting fans and an embarrassment to the icons of classic mythology, although I suppose it deserves credit as the first fighting game that can be won in the middle of a full-on seizure.

    It’s simple, really. King of Clubs just isn’t any fun to play, and in an industry obsessed with making money at the consumers’ expense and developing safe-bet hit software, developers would do well to take note: video games should be fun.

    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.

    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.

    Five mini-games aside, there’s no real gameplay value here.

    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 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.

    Unfortunately, it's waned away in the final release due to lackluster controls and dull visuals that fail to appeal.

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

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

    From start to finish the gameplay is a balanced mixture of simplicity and unimpressive-ness.
