    I wanted to like Jet Car Stunts, I really did but I just couldn't. I just got incredibly bored with this.

    This might be enjoyable for some of the retirement home crowd that is partial to the Wii, but everyone still having a strong pulse will want to avoid it.

    The game tries too hard to be funny and to clever and misses a few important things like pacing, dialog, and fun. There are some cool things buried in the game but you have to look really hard to find them.

    Art of Murder paints itself into a corner with the same old brushes we've seen misused time and time again.

    Mushroom Men: Rise of the Fungi is juggling too many play styles at the same time. Instead of coming together into a fun package, the platforming, RPG elements and real-time combat get in each others’ way.

    There are just too many problems with the basic game of basketball in NBA 09 to really recommend this above the other games out there.

    If you must have a Kung Fu Panda Wii game, consider Legendary Warriors over the first game only if you absolutely must have multi-player capability.

    2k Sports swings for the fences, but ultimately drops the ball.

    Shady A.I., gameplay that gets stale fast, and a story that is impossible to decipher when you're losing to the enemy forces in the first turn means you should avoid Puzzle Quest Galactrix.

    I don't know what else to say except for summarizing that this game is a complete mess, top to bottom. Even the slightest redeeming qualities, like the fun trivia mode an the quirky art style are quickly overshadowed by the numerous other shortcomings of the game.

    Attempting to bring in new RPG gamers by having lower difficulty isn't enough to save A Witch's Tale from a plodding story, and slow game play.

    It’s easy to compare Zombie Apocalypse to Burn Zombie Burn, but unfortunately the game doesn’t share its witty charm or long-term appeal.

    Comprised of several well loved classic games, including the historic Operation, Hasbro Family Game Night 2 should be a lot better than it is. Other than Connect 4x4, which holds up relatively well, the board games just don’t convert well to the Wii.

    Everybody else should just let this call go to voice mail!

    A disappointing addition to one of my favorite fantasy series. Poor AI, questionable design decisions, and a surprising lack of challenge mar the venerable Disciples pedigree.

    Sniper: Ghost Warrior did tickle a sweet spot with it's HUD for the sniper scoop, but the rest of the game is quite mediocre and painfully short.

    The only fun you will find in Front Mission Evolved is using your fully equipped Wanzer to control a ridiculous spread of weaponry.

    For those fans expecting a gameplay experience up to par with the franchise, let your hopes drain now.

    With terrible graphics and an even worse story mode, Power Gig is sure to leave a bad taste in your mouth!

    Deadliest Catch: Sea of Chaos had the chance to take the original game and fix everything that was wrong with it. Instead, it was remade, almost from scratch, and actually made worse in many areas because they tried to make the game more simple…

    The frustrating AI ultimately ruins what could have been a decent PSP brawler. It would take an extreme amount of patience or loyalty to the Naruto brand to even see this game to the finish, especially when it's a side story of the franchise.

    I really wanted to like NASCAR 2011: The Game; but while the core racing can be pretty interesting (especially on the short tracks), the overall game is held back by paper-thin career mode, unformed gameplay features, and unfriendly difficulty. I'm not a follower of NASCAR, but I hoped NASCAR 2011: The game would make want to. I didn't.

    Call of Juarez: The Cartel is a hodgepodge of bad ideas and performance issues. Even if you can get past the technical problems, this heavy-handed action game never quite lives up to its potential. If you have a couple friends to play with you might get some fun out of it, everybody else might want to look elsewhere for their first-person fix!

    War in the North never quite manages to exceed in neither gameplay or presentation. Ultimately, lackluster environments and repetitive combat make for an experience that seems out of place in the world crafted by Tolkien. Even if Lord of the Rings precedes the title, War in the North does not live up to the level of quality set by previous franchise media.

    Genkibowl VII is not the Saints Row: The Third add-on you've been waiting for. Instead it's a painfully bad mini-game collection, half of which is recycled from last year's disc-based release. There are some funny lines here and there, but they won't make up for the disappointing and overpriced content!

    Deep Black: Reloaded is an underwater Gears of War clone. While a good idea in theory, the execution here is all wrong. Frustrating action, poor checkpointing, boring level designs and enemies that take far too many bullets to kill. There are some good ideas here, but you have to dive deep to find them!

    With its Don Bluth animations and movie-quality production values, Dragon's Lair is the best looking game of the 1980s. Unfortunately, in order to look so good the game had to make a few sacrifices. As a result we're left with a shallow "action" game that is little more than Simon Says. Not even the gimmicky Kinect support makes this game worth playing more than once!

    Any kid who plays It’s the Big Game, Charlie Brown will probably feel like they are being punished.

    Swashbucklers tries to do many things, but ultimately disappoints in all of them.

    I know a lot of people will be tempted to pick up the game at its $20 price point, but don't do it; this game isn't worth it even if they give it to you for free!
