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

    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.

    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.

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

    Shockingly boring.

    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.

    Ultimately Naruto Shippuden: Shinobi Rumble is a shallow game.
    • 54 Metascore

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Gameplay is horrible.

    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.
    • 49 Metascore

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

    After playing Zoids Assault, I really had to wonder why it was made or why Atlus decided to bring it over to these shores.

    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.

    Just running around blasting things and hunting for keys isn't fun anymore. When you also remove the feeling of having a LAN party from the multiplay, you're not exactly left with a must-play game.

    Please don’t buy this game. Not for your kid, not for you. It’s not worth it. Get them more cards or something. They won’t get anything out of this Yu-Gi-Oh game other than story.

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

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

    If you’re looking for jRPGs on your Vita, you’ve got great options–but Rainbow Moon isn’t one of them.

    There are some decent things going on in Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z. The cel-shaded art style is appealing, the dialogue and cutscenes are occasionally entertaining, and even the combat is fun at times. But the frustrating camera, aggravating controls and a nonsensical story that only briefly touches upon the themes of the series, weigh this spinoff title down too much for it to be enjoyable.

    While a lot of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 fails to impress, there is a decent amount of potential to be had in this Beenox product.
    • 60 Metascore

    The game is fraught with issues that pop up cryptic error messages and sound bugs that should have been taken care of a long time before this was shipped.

    I tend to review KOEI titles higher than some other reviewers as I have no interest in panning a game that people have put some effort into; on the surface this is not one of those games.

    This formula one just has a few faults and nothing that successfully improves on that formula.
