    This action-RPG/dungeon builder hybrid fails to live up to the predecessors it so carefully tries to emulate.

    I definitely enjoyed answering questions on the go, but clearly this isn't the way it to put it all together. That's not to say that Buzz can't eventually be a great portable game, but it needs a lot of work to get to that point!

    Sometimes combining disparate elements can result in a product whose value is greater than the sum of the parts. Other times, not so much. Shadow Harvest: Phantom Ops showed promise in the premise but completely fails to fulfill its mission.

    For fifteen dollars, there are better titles out there to download. Daggerdale will certainly give fans of repetitive combat what they look for, but little else.

    Long time fans of the genre looking to get their fix on the console(s) will find what they need here. Unfortunately, they are also going to find the things that hinder the genre on anything other than a PC.

    Johnny Gat is back ... kind of. This comic book-influenced expansion pack introduces us to a super fan that clones the most famous member of the Third Street Saints. Too bad the short play time and shallow experience keep this from living up to the potential. Not even super powers can save this lazy pack of downloadable content!

    You're better off just playing through the first game a second time and waiting for The Godfather III!

    Capcom isn't sure what it wants to do with the Resident Evil series. Should it be an action game or survival horror? Scary or thrilling? One thing is for sure, it definitely shouldn't be like Operation Raccoon City. This multiplayer third-person shooter has a few good ideas, but not enough to warrant picking up this disappointing spin-off!

    I like the premise of the game, and the puzzles can be fun to solve. However, the lack of a good multiplayer mode, the lack of a puzzle creator/editor, a help system that isn't always helpful, and a $30 price tag leaves a lot to be desired with this game.

    While there are aspects in the game that mimic some of the more expensive shooters out there, Blacklight: Tango Down just doesn't play well in a lot of areas.

    Dream Chronicles is a solid adventure, but unfortunately one that you will experience and then forget.

    If you’ve Scene It? once, you’ve Scene It? all. Bright Lights, Big Screen is an unnecessary addition to the bloated series.

    Modern Hits is more of the same uninspired and painful gameplay you've already experienced!

    I can only recommend this title to the most patience of the hardcore and even then only after there has been a patch to fix lingering technical issues.

    Rio
    Rio is a perfectly competent yet completely unoriginal game undone by an over-abundance of rehashed ideas.

    Sumioni is a mixed bag. While it is a solid action game in terms of its foundation, the overall execution of the idea and obtrusive touch screen controls prevent the complete package from excelling.

    Quarrel is a bright idea hamstrung by a series of unfortunate design flaws, lack of offline multiplayer, balancing issues, and a desperate need to remain inoffensive.

    Namco Bandai and Cyber Connect 2 are usually a winning combination with Naruto games. But with Ultimate Ninja Impact, it really feels like they phoned it in.

    The classic casual title comes to the PS3, but seems out of its element in the console world.

    Ultimately Halo 3: ODST’s campaign is a big disappointment while it introduces some great multiplayer features.

    MicroBot is a frustrating experience of unrelenting enemies that function more as a burden than a challenging gameplay element.

    Star Trek Online is far from perfect, but based on it’s placement fills a niche for sci-fi gamers between EVE Online and Star Wars Galaxies.

    Sonic Free Riders has a lot of good ideas, but none that are brought to fruition what serves as the ultimate experience.

    If you were jazzed on the hype that King of Fighters XII initially had, calm down. This game has a pretty face, and that's about it. A competent fighting system with nothing else to offer makes for a pretty short and shallow experience.

    Dustforce is a challenging and sometimes frustrating platforming experience that constantly expects perfection.

    There's nothing broken about Naruto Shippuden: Naruto vs Sasuke, but there isn't anything to make it stand out in a crowd either. You're better off getting your ninja fix elsewhere.

    I really wanted to like Lucha Libre AAA: Heroes del Ring, but the gameplay system's faults just keep it from being a truly enjoyable experience in the long run.

    Return to Mafia II in yet another unspectacular expansion pack. Joe's Adventure has the potential to be great, but it falls short thanks to boring filler missions, a lack of a checkpoint system and a frustrating timer. And worst of all, it turns out that Joe's adventure is barely worth telling. This is only for the most hardcore Mafia II fans!

    Majin and the Forsaken is the definition of a mediocre title. Nearly every aspect of the game is bland and unoriginal, with the exception of a great control scheme when it comes to controlling the non-playable Majin. Some players may find a tolerable adventure in the game, but don't expect much else.

    Kung Fu Panda is a surprisingly good movie game that is marred by awkward PC controls.
