    Part racing game and part 2D platformer, Rush Bros. is full of high speed excitement. Unfortunately, there isn't much to do once you've completed the 40+ races. Even more disappointing are the balance issues found in the competitive online mode. Rush Bros. comes close, but can't quite make it over the finish line.

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

    Despite all of its glitz and movie inspired hype, I just can’t recommend this game as a purchase, and a rent is iffy too.

    I actually enjoyed the game. It's not meant to be a fast-paced action game, but a game to make you pay attention to what's going on around you, and to think about what you're doing and what kind of impact it'll have on the outcome. The major misstep was giving to option to replay any scenario in an episode, as it pretty much kills the replay value, but other than that, I really enjoyed this game.

    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.

    A game can also end up being worse than the sum of its parts. Lair is a good example of this. Because Lair’s most important element, the control scheme, is terrible, you end up with a game worthy of the bargain bin.

    Even if you enjoyed the movie, this game isn’t worth your money. It isn’t a sequel, but more like a buggy, half-empty expansion pack for Spider-Man 2.

    The gameplay in Destroy All Humans is getting stale, and Big Willy Unleashed beats the dead horse with a death ray.

    Death Track Resurrection is one of those PC games that would be better on a console. If you want a PlayStation-esque gaming experience on your PC, by all means give it a try. Otherwise, not so much.

    Painkiller: Hell & Damnation is what it is. So what is it? It’s a low-budget game that would have received the same poor marks at the dawn of this generation as it does at its dusk. The simplistic action can be fun, however, so play it at your own risk.

    With the Dreamcast Collection, Sega finds yet another way to disappoint their fans. Instead of releasing a comprehensive disc full of must-own games, this once-mighty company chooses four games at random. Throw in some questionable design decisions (like not being able to switch games without exiting the disc) and you have one of the worst compilations I've played in years!

    Inversion is yet another derivative third-person shooter with a gimmick. This time around you control gravity in the most limited way possible. Although there are plenty of strong moments, the game is ultimately brought back down to earth with the never ending cinemas, repeating bosses, ugly graphics and frustrating level designs!

    Fast paced and hard hitting, Speedball 2 HD combines full contact sports with association football and comes out pretty well. Since this title has some flaws and lacks online multiplayer, it isn't going to win the top division, but it holds its own and is certainly fun to play.

    Sadly, the lack of a discernable plot, limited character selection, some bugs(enemies walking through barriers, jumping off the screen only to appear on the other side), and boring basic level play lead this game down a bad road.

    With brazenly low system requirements, The Chosen: Well of Souls will fit snugly into the palm of your hand at 600 MB, lend you a healthy allotment of diversionary hours at less than the cost for an expansion pack, and bequeath a straight-forward, no-nonsense roleplaying experience.

    Rife with technical issues and a clunky user interface, Elemental: War of Magic is not yet the game I hoped it could be.

    With a non-existent storyline and fledgling gameplay that hinges solely on the run and gun mechanic, Bodycount simply is not anywhere on the level of a top tier FPS. Add in the fact that there is flat out no multiplayer to speak of and you have a game that was on life support before it even released.

    If you own a Windows tablet or Windows phone, just play this on those devices instead if you must. Even if you are a huge Halo fan, there is absolutely no reason to shell out $15 for this game when you can play the exact same game for $7 on mobile devices.

    Spy vs. Spy continues Vicious Cycles' tradition of graphically strong games that lack solid game play.

    I would like nothing more than to tell you that Gangs of London takes "The Getaway" series in a brand new direction that breathes fresh life into the franchise. But that would be a lie. This game is just as bad as it was on the PlayStation 2.

    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!

    Cross Edge had a lot of potential to be great. But a stiff and simply not fun battle system, coupled with a silly level of difficulty make it a title you're going to absolutely slog through, no matter how much you love the characters and their respective franchises.

    Playing Game of Thrones is just like sitting on the Iron Throne itself - there's a lot there to find fulfilling, but you'll cut yourself on the sharp edges if you're not ready for them.

    The story and dialog aren't anything new or interesting. In fact, there isn't much about Alien Rage: Unlimited that brings anything new to the table. But there's a lot about it that hits you right in the nostalgia.

    With only sixteen training missions that take only an hour to complete and an Xbox Live multiplayer mode that I can't find anyone online to play with, this game leaves a lot to be desired, even for a $10 game.

    The gameplay is definitely not worth the $59.99 price tag of a next generation title.

    Brunswick Pro Bowling had the potential to be one of the best bowling games of all time; it has a deep single-player career mode, good graphics and enough locations to keep you from getting bored. Unfortunately this game is marred by the poor control and unforgiving difficulty level.

    In the end, it's an obviously low-budget game that lives up to the lowered expectations you must entertain in order to enjoy it.

    While the picky controls and fixed camera angle can be annoying at times, Jack Keane 2 provides witty writing and attractive art combined with sensibly logical puzzles to provide a pretty good adventure.
