    It's totally weird, but I had to factor in that my boys actually play this game. That gives the overall score a little boost.

    Mastering some of the techniques will present a real challenge and the story line and characters are cute and appealing.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 39 Critic Score
    This is absolutely one of the worst games I have ever played and certainly the worst use of a commercial license. Under no circumstances should you even consider spending any money on this title.

    Too repetitive to be interesting.

    Not worth the time of any M&M's lover, and should be vehemently avoided by fans of the action/adventure genre. Do yourself a favor and buy a few bags of M&M's instead – they're much cheaper, several times more enjoyable, and won't leave you with a horrible aftertaste.

    There could have been a lot of innovative aspects, but in the end, it’s too repetitive. With not challenging the gamers, Jumper’s only redeeming factor is the easy-to-earn achievement points.

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

    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.

    A badly conceived game that offers no enjoyment.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    A very disappointing game from start to finish, Rogue Warrior is a game that brings nothing new to the genre nor does it make for a fun first-person shooter worth the money. Simply put, this isn’t just an awful shooter but it’s also a terrible game.

    Released 20 years too late, Harlem Globetrotters is a bore and a technological mess.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 27 Critic Score
    A very short, mindless fighter with boring multiplayer and not even a minute of replay value.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 69 Critic Score
    It has challenge, but stumbles on the graphical front.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    I did enjoy playing the game, but it is not addicting and somewhat frustrating to play. I did not find it realistic, nor were there any original challenges to spice it up. Cast, reel in and repeat.

    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.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    The game just falls a little short on several levels. The commentary and player dialogue is repetitions and can become annoying and the control scheme is not that good for the platform. This would be better on a console.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    While keyboard controls were decent, playing with a gamepad was unbearable in race modes. There are four different arenas to race or crash in, and some neat ideas like massacre and arena, but overall the repetitive gameplay and annoying collision detection quickly got dull.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    I love the show as does the little Bearer, but the characters are just not enough to overcome the repetitive, flawed gameplay.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 36 Critic Score
    Though a decent idea on paper, Stake has poor controls, pathetic graphics, a terrible camera, and sound that even makes your custom soundtracks seem lame. The entire package just seems like it needs a lot more work.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    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.
    • 26 Metascore

    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.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    The setting for a really interesting adventure is present and the hero has a really nifty aquatic gift, but the end result is disastrous thanks to poor execution and a weak story with no real payoff.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Instead of endless hours of fun as I had anticipated, I was rewarded with pain and frustration from a game that really has no great strongpoint to offset its' weaknesses.

    “Broken” is the only fitting adjective here.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    While the game has “style,” it is pretty much broken.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Hoo boy, the game has an issue with mouse speed while the rest of the controls can be configured to your liking the interaction of the environments is spotty and the hostages would apparently rather eat broken glass then follow their rescuer out of a burning building.

    I have seen NES games that look better than this game.
    • 25 Metascore

    Stay away from this one at all costs.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    This is Quotix Software’s first venture into this genre of gaming, and while some interesting ideas are at work in CfH, its problematic gameplay and shallow story eclipse its potential, resulting in a budget title that is far more frustrating than fun.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    For the high price mark of $15 you're just not getting enough. The gameplay is good when played correctly, but that same lack of lenience in play style is also a deficiency. Most players will not be able to find enough value to make it worth their purchase.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    One of the worst games I have ever played. The gameplay is a total nightmare, there’s no music, and the objectives are redundant.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A generic, motion-based music game that doesn't come close to resembling the act of playing a real instrument.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Everything about it feels like a rushed production and in the end this is what finally brings it down.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    There is little replay value, except for multiplayer. This game is only recommended for the extremely hardcore ATV fan, and anyone craving a fun and challenging racer should look elsewhere.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    You can’t play a racing game when there are walls – literally walls – that prevent you from driving more than two miles an hour.

    Legends of Wrestling II's graphics look like they were created by a five-year-old.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 34 Critic Score
    The developers clearly are just trying to make a buck by putting out this version and I'm fairly certain some of them are embarrassed by the end product.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Unfortunately this game is nowhere near the league of the movie, it is down right awful...Do not buy this game at any costs.

    I will give it one thumbs up as a FUN game to play with some really beautiful scenery (wink wink).
    • 22 Metascore
    • 56 Critic Score
    The potential and real world model was there for the emulation, but something along the transition didn't make it out of the batter's box. The complexity of having that annoyance stylus maneuvering just added frustration to a game that was already missing "pep."
    • 21 Metascore
    • 54 Critic Score
    You get what you pay for here; it's a bargain-priced game that has some small tidbit of fun if played in short bursts. Otherwise it's an exercise in repetition and mindless button mashing.
    • 20 Metascore
    • 18 Critic Score
    This is officially the lowest scored game in my entire career of reviewing games; the good news is that no matter what I review next, it can't be any worse.

    It's subtle, yet dynamic.

    With horrid AI, lousy visuals, and boring level design, Navy Seals: Weapons of Mass Destruction is one budget title best left on the shelf.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    If at all possible, you should consider purchasing a different game. One that will justify paying what you expect to spend. A game that is worthy of being called a game.

    Being one of a few (if not the only) WWII combat flight MMO, I can recommend this to anyone who is willing to try something out of the norm of a standard, free MMO. Combat flight buffs who can overlook the arcade controls, will find a lot to love about Heroes in the Sky.

    • 65 Critic Score
    While not perfect, Zone 4: Fight District manages to stay mildly entertaining. If you're looking to relieve your stress by button-mashing someone's face in, then perhaps Zone 4 is right up your alley. However, its somewhat laggy input response, and non-engaging combat, damper the overall experience.

    Samantha Swift and the Hidden Roses of Athena is an enjoyable casual game. It's the type of game you pick up and play for a little while, only to notice a couple of hours went by. Not only is it a fun time waster, but it allows for multiple playthroughs thanks to its varied item lists. Casual fans take notice.

    Space Trek is the kind of game you hope turns out well, but doesn't surprise you when you discover just how bland it is.

    The graphics are inexplicably tiny on Macs compared to the PC display, but the price is right to try. Check it out. I promise not to tell your friends.

    Family Game Night 3 is a mixed bundle of fun party games and underdeveloped duds, and one should never rely on the AI for a good time. That being said, the uppity sound design and vibrant presentation make the overall experience engaging, and results in a good, budget alternative for when titles like Scene It? and Monopoly have grown stale.

    We can only recommend Battle of Giants: Dinosaurs Strike to kids or those of you who can't live without dino fighting. The simplistic fighting and sporadic options probably won't bother you guys that much at all. Everyone else, though, should probably track down a Primal Rage machine at their local arcade. You can thank us later.

    Chrono Rage never strays far from conventions, but it is always a joy to play. The lack of multiplayer and selectable difficulties is regrettable, but hardly detrimental in light of the numerous modes offered. In a market becoming crowded with shoddy knockoffs, Chrono Rage stands out as a polished trophy of the genre.

    It is absolutely perfect for the iPhone and other touchscreen devices, but loses a little something when played with a mouse, and for more than a few minutes at a time.

    Star Wolves 3: Ashes of Victory should have included a lot of improvements and fixes over the original, but instead remains very much the same. This is one open space that is better left unexplored, and a Civil War that is best to stay out of.

    In terms of sheer amount of characters and stages, The King of Fighters 2002 Unlimited Match offers up the most comprehensive KOF title to date for an affordable price. Sadly, SNK's perpetually poor network code hinders online play and it lacks the Striker and Multi-Shift gameplay that would have made it a truly complete experience.

    After the last disappointing DS Bakugan game, this is the one to pick up if you're a fan.

    • 55 Critic Score
    Ultimately, Gods vs. Humans is passable, but it isn't a very easy title to recommend. The game is overly restrictive due to its metered gameplay; you need to formulate repetitive attack patterns ad nauseam; and the extra content is hardly worth checking out.

    Wii owners with Kinect envy should look no further than the Active Life games. They may not fully represent your movement in game, but come extremely close. Though it's a game primarily aimed at the younger crowd, players of any age can get in on the fun, especially when played with multiple people.

    What Diner Dash started grew into a casual phenomenon, and Supermarket Mania 2 builds off of those foundations, while not really reinventing the genre. It's a solid time management game that will test both your mental and finger dexterity.

    Although Intellivision Lives! provides more games than most compilations, it lacks the extra content that we have come to expect; no additional artwork, advertisement, facts, or timelines.

    Mahjong Journey: Quest for Tikal is a generic title that can be entertaining, but without any sort of payoff. It's the kind of puzzle game that you don't mind playing on a friend's system to kill a few minutes. You play, you win, and you forget.

    Chu Chu Rocket looks and sounds as charming as the Dreamcast original. The graphics are simple, consisting of playfields with running mice and cats, but they're designed with the same Sonic Team charm.

    It's a steal for a plane-ride or many a car-ride, but it definitely is not the kind of casual game you play for 10 minutes at a time.

    All of these elements come together for a simple game that is deeply addictive. StarBurst is hectic, fast-paced, and highly enjoyable. If you're into puzzle games, add this one to your list of must-download apps.

    Whether choosing your personal advisers, colonizing a new country, requesting marriage to soften international relations, or just stomping the boot of military might across the world, Europa Universalis III Chronicles is the game for it-as long as you're prepared for a steep learning curve.

    A party game in the purest sense of the term. It's the type of game you'll want to play in short bursts with a sibling or return to countless times with a group of friends.

    As an intellectual experiment, Dinner Date is interesting and even profound. As a meta-narrative about the social constructs that confront the modern man, it fascinates. As a game, it barely qualifies.

    Fun to play but painful to behold, an ugly prom date with a "great personality." It's simple, fun, and terribly bland-looking, but if you've got that strategy itch and are reluctant to invest in a more complicated or lengthy game, then World Supremacy is worth a look.

    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.

    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.
