    Overall, Dark Void was a definite disappointment, but at the same time it's completely playable.

    A lot of the puzzles require precise placement, and the controls, using the d-pad or analog nub, are a bit inconsistent.

    So let's add it up: a story that's virtually impossible to follow, grind-heavy gameplay that consistently leads nowhere, and frustrating combat. I'm not saying that it would've been better off in Fantasy Hero: Unsigned Legacy never got localized — more games are always welcome, no matter how bad they may be — but at the same time, I'm not not saying that either.

    As the headline suggests, only pick this up if you are a hardcore fan and know what you are getting with Soldier’s Soul.

    Saw
    The game should take you anywhere from 6 to 10 hours to complete, depending on your willingness to see every nook and cranny of the game. You also are privy to two endings in the game, and thankfully the game saves right before your final decision so you can witness both endings without necessarily taking another trip through the game.

    While the graphics have come along as expected, there just isn't any substance to make ESPN NBA 2 Night 2002 worth your time.

    Arguably, there are other classics that should have been included, but it's an excellent sampling and a nice blast from the past if you're interested in walking down memory lane.

    While the options are bigger this year, I thought last year’s game felt more complete in overall game play.

    It had a chance, but the rushed nature of the product, the dismal production values, the lack of variety, and the odd privatization of gimmicks over fundamentals make the game a failure in pretty much every regard.

    It's nice to see another shooter where shooters are not, but Platypus only incorporates bare-bones play which can't figure out if it wants to be hard or easy.

    It's immediately obvious that a great labor was undertaken to create and maintain the art style throughout, but it's marred immediately by lazy game design that neither finds any synergy with the art nor shows any pride in the product.

    Like a cowboy at a punk concert, it’s awkward and really doesn’t belong.

    Not the title to bring soccer to the greater masses; it only insults those who enjoy the sport.

    The controls aren't as specific as a fishing game's controls could be expected to handle.

    Seven Sorrows succeeded in bringing back the nostalgia of the arcade franchise, but the game just feels all too familiar for a present day purchase.

    Rule of Rose is more of a semi-interactive storybook than anything else, and everything that it does right in storytelling and atmosphere is completely nullified by boring and horribly broken gameplay.

    There are definitely areas that the game could see some serious improvement, but overall, I'm not entirely disappointed in this old school revival attempt.

    The controls are decent, but FPSs just don’t seem to work the best on the standard GC controller; That C stick is just too tiny.

    Contrast may be great to look at, but when it comes down to it, what really matters is whether it can accomplish the fundamental task of keeping things moving forward without breaking down very often. And on that front, to be brutally honest, it fails, making it worth a download if you have PS+, but probably not much more than that.

    I think the game does offer some unique things to whole 3rd person action cover system, but at the same time I have a hard time thinking of it as something really fun to play.

    Is it a little rough around the edges right now? You bet. But with a virtually non-existent entry cost and some solid foundation to back it up, Dust 514 is worth checking out.

    While Spiderwick Chronicles didn't turn out to be a pile of trash, it's far from special and doesn't warrant a second glance in just about any situation.

    Aladdin isn't breaking any new video game ground, but it's a fun, colorful experience, even though it's several years old.

    There's nothing so terrible about it that you'll regret ever having picked it up — there are no Jesus Bynum moments, in other words — but it's doubtful you'll have much fun playing it either.

    I can't decide who's at fault here. Is it Sony for including 3D power and no way to control the camera? Or is it the fault of these game developers that insist on developing 3D games that obviously need camera control?

    Is it a deep, engaging experience? No, of course not. But on the flip side, Damascus Gear: Operation Tokyo features giant robot battles. What more do you need?

    I think if you're already an established Dynasty Warriors fan, then you'll probably love what Strikeforce is doing for the series. Likewise, if you were a fan and fell off the wagon at some point, this is a great game to jump back on with. Finally, if you've never played a DW game before, or if the series hasn't held much appeal, I think Strikeforce can even be the game for you.

    Everything else gets repetitive pretty quickly, which has to be expected from a game based on redneck jokes. In small doses, that's great. I support mean-spirited humor on almost every level. But because the game's two focuses, driving and trading, are so shallow the humor is the only entertainment left.

    Having the games and the movie on a single Blu-ray disc is probably the only missing "feature" of the Watchmen: The End is Nigh The Complete Experience package, although I understand the reasoning behind splitting them up.
