    Really disappointing. It's short, repetitive, and just not a lot of fun.

    A repetitive game that looks decent but has a horrible (lack of a) save game feature, Scooby-Doo! Unmasked is a perfect example of [a] recipe for mediocrity.

    If there were a way to “Mystery Science Theater 3000” a game, this would be considered one of the best games to do that with. Shellshock: Nam ’67 is the Manos: Hand of Fate of video games.

    I felt like I was getting more of the movie's story, but playing through this was an aggravating chore. It's a rental, please don't buy it.

    It’s not a fun game, and what little is here gets real old real fast.

    It's a rush job, a disservice to the franchise, and its just not a very good game.

    It’s a bummer, but that’s what happens to most video games as they age: they’re never as good as we once remembered.

    It’s too bad that this game wasn’t better developed and given more time to polish. Instead of a fine dish of Klingon gagh, we end up with poorly sung Klingon opera.

    Ultimately Naruto Shippuden: Shinobi Rumble is a shallow game.

    Shockingly boring.

    While there are plenty of game modes, not a one of them is a challenge.

    If Turtles are your thing, you might want to put aside the concerns for the bugs and pull down the demo from Xbox Live. It is more than playable, just don’t expect to have a smooth ride. On the other hand, the story is light but so is the source material – it would have been nice to see episodic content come out for an otherwise compelling realization of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

    The game draws heavily on Sid Meier’s Pirates!, with some minor differences in setting and more action-oriented gameplay. Still, it lacks the polish of Pirates! and gets bogged down by some questionable interface decisions reminiscent of older, less-refined games.

    If you like mediocrity and stupid storylines, this game is definitely for you.

    If you are yearning for a multiplayer beat-em-up, this might satisfy you for a bit. Be warned though: since there is no story, I found the limited appeal is for all but hardcore fighting fans.

    For the sake of the people in our profession, please quality check titles before publishing them. If at any point in the testing you sense an urgency to find something sharp and jab yourself with it repeatedly then make a mental note that it’s the fault of a poor game.

    It is nice that the game controls so easily so that parents don’t have to constantly be watching over their kids. Still, it’s a bit too short to really justify the purchase.

    It fills a niche that I’m sure will have a following, but it is not for everyone, least of all casual strategy gamers such as myself.

    I can't even recommend this title to fans of the series. This game plays poorly, and has little new or redeeming gameplay value.

    Gameplay is horrible.

    Croixleur isn't broken, but it is aggressively mediocre.

    Zen Pinball 2’s Age of Ultron table doesn’t offer enough fan service to appease any level of Avengers fan, and there aren’t enough interesting mechanics to excite a virtual pinball fan.

    Draft Day Sports: Pro Basketball 2017 is a generic simulator that is just not quite ready for the big leagues. There are plenty of great features, and a deep collection of players that show the potential expected. A series of fatal flaws and poor design throughout will frustrate you and make you want to send it back down for more development.

    The Crew is a game filled with missed opportunities and unfulfilled potential.

    Polished and pretty, the dazzling visuals and crisp sound aren’t enough to overlook Meridian: Squad 22’s many issues. This RTS is every bit as unremarkable as its story.

    Godzilla faithful will be once again disappointed by this lackluster offering. Unintuitive controls, poor responsiveness, broken combat, repetitive missions…

    The scariest thing about this title is the horror of facing another “find the key puzzle.” Oculus support and solid voice acting doesn’t save Doorways from bad puzzles, poor monster design and ineffective scares.

    If this were a PSP game I may be able to overlook a lot of these short comings, but as a PS3 game, Last Rebellion is disappointing.

    Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival retains the charm that the series is known for, but is uneventful and boring. Move out of this town.

    Knack would have been a passable game twenty years ago, but now it just feels tired and uninspired.
