    This is by far one of the most disappointing and seemingly unfinished games that I have ever played in my entire life.

    Operation Darkness takes an intriguing idea, but ruins it with some awful gameplay.

    Look, the game is completely disappointing to young and old fans, and the fat cat has been around for so long, isn't it about time he was given a decent title?

    Simple to pick up and play and it offers plenty of action, yet the chaotic gameplay and wildly cluttered tracks can sap the fun out of things as quickly as they create it.

    If you aren’t playing Dead to Rights: Retribution for its silly good old-fashioned crime story arc, you are playing it for the wrong reasons. It may be a farce, but Dead to Rights: Retribution is the equivalent of a straight-to-DVD Dolph Lundgren or Jean-Claude Van Damme film.

    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."

    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.

    Thanks to its broken controls, awkward combat mechanics and uninspiring mission objectives, it’s hard to recommend this game to dedicated fans of the show.

    There are some fun moments in this game but they are fleeting moments that are quickly overshadowed by the game's repetitiveness.

    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.

    Nintendo may have had the best intentions with Wii Music. Their aim to create software anyone can pick up and play is shared by most publishers within the game industry. But there are limits to how simple a game can be before it stops being fun.

    EA Mobile didn't really push to make Boggle a unique experience on the iPad like they did with Scrabble. It would benefit greatly if there were an iPhone download to input your letters so anyone playing could do so at the same time, not one at a time.

    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.

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

    Poorly conceived and quite dull in nearly every way, Golden Axe: Beast Rider is one of those missed opportunities that could have brought the series to a new generation of gamers. Instead it takes a linear route that makes this a game even Golden Axe fans will certainly want to avoid.

    Don't let Vampire Moon's budget price entice you. At the end of the day, this bogged-down adventure game lacks the kind of bite a good vampire tale needs.

    A linear, uninventive and utterly boring action game from start to finish, the splatter-fest that is Onechanbara makes us wonder how a game with bikinis this skimpy could be a very bad thing. I like a good hack-and-slash action game but this Bikini Samurai Squad makes mindless fun feel really quite unentertaining.

    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.

    Far more infuriating than entertaining. RPG fans can find plenty of alternatives.

    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.

    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.

    The idea that looked good on paper translated into unfair challenge and highly monotonous gameplay on the screen. Sanctum of Slime will have you reminiscing about the days when the Ghostbusters franchise meant good films, not lousy video games.

    Point-and-click absurdity that places the order of completion before player creativity.

    Bronze would be a lot easier to recommend if it were a $1-5 download on a phone service. Despite its very narrow boundaries, the game plays fine and is mildly entertaining in short bursts. At its current price, however, Bronze ends up looking (on platforms with such vastly superior offerings) like a historical footnote, at best.

    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.

    Too repetitive to be interesting.

    There is hardly a flow to the game and with the poor camera controls and poor animations this is a title that is better off passed on.

    What starts out as a promising adventure quickly evolves to a world of long and frustrating mini-games.

    Young players and monster truck fans may find Collision Course a mildly enjoyable, if seriously flawed, racing romp, but most should pass on this pedestrian racer.

    Taiketsu just doesn't work. With bad gameplay, graphics, sound, and multiplayer, it leaves this reviewer complaining more than Andy Rooney.
