    So if the Bratz brand does manage to somehow live on after the lawsuit loss to Mattel's Barbie, there could be some elements here for a sequel to build on. And, if Bratz is truly done, it at least leaves the stage with a glimpse of the potential for the good game that might have happened in some alternate future.

    Zombie Wranglers has all of the usual trappings of a middling Xbox Live Arcade game, such as repetitive gameplay, cheesy jokes and bad sound effects. What makes it such a chore, though, are the base mechanics. The game just isn't much fun.

    Unfocused and unpolished. Its handful of unique gameplay ideas are held back by a distractingly poor graphical presentation and control issues that plague some of its mini-games.

    It is riddled with bugs and the story is below par. Decent graphics and a couple good puzzles can't make up for what it is lacking--that quality of immersion and feeling and lets not forget playability.

    Lackluster action sequences, brain-dead AI and limited gameplay features really cripple the port of Army of Two: The 40th day on the PSP. While the game does feature morality moments, good dialogue and a variety of environments to fight through, the action is so basic and repetitive that the fun is completely missing.

    Crystal Caverns' one saving grace may be that neither of those superior versions of this same game are available through DSiWare.

    Older gamers may be able to handle the play control quirks, but they probably won't find much in this coconut to make them want to bother.

    So Bugs'N'Balls is a game you should dodge. Have a laugh at its name and move along.

    Filled to the brim with content and hard-as-hell questions, but that's about it. The front-end could have been made in Flash, and it'll just bore you to death.

    Dynasty Warriors has long outstayed its welcome, and even with Empires' semi-cool strategic elements, the game won't please anyone except the die-hard fans that, for whatever reason, just keep coming back for more. 360 owners deserve more.

    Supremacy MMA's good ideas get lost in a mediocre attempt at a fighting game. The core gameplay didn't satisfy me, the stories were similar and silly, and online didn't work well.

    The worst thing about WorldShift is its unfulfilled potential.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    There's nothing spectacular or original or special about the title, but it's not particularly awful, either. It's just one of those games that simply exists in the realm of meh.

    Just another of the same old adventures, barely different than the Bratz games that have come before.

    Staff of Kings is an odd game because it has so much going for it, including fun level designs, great variety, and a wealth of unlockables, but the end experience is inescapably marred by stupidly implemented motion controls on Wii.

    The Asteroids Deluxe package is another classic game that feels like its achievement points are worth more than the purchase itself.
    • 52 Metascore

    A game that should have focused less on exuding street cred and more on gameplay. Larger, more varied race courses and greater differentiation between the weapons would have gone a long way towards making this game more enjoyable.

    Unless you're seriously into Tiny Toons (which, as far as I can tell, has already run its course as a license), skip this one and get the real deal: "Puyo Pop."

    There are different stories to play through and plenty to unlock, but it's nothing special.

    One Piece: Romance Dawn tries hard to tell the Straw Hats’ story, but you’d be better off just watching the anime.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The potential for some really clever level designs are lost in this sloppy brawler with harsh character controls and collision detection that really needs to be tweaked.
    • 56 Metascore

    Assassin features flawed stealth action elements that can ruin the gameplay when they go awry, and only point out the hit-or-miss nature of the mechanics when they work well.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The port as a whole is very disappointing considering this game doesn't push even half the detail of BAM's other first-person shooter, "Ecks vs. Sever."

    Shooting Nazis in the streets of three major U.S. cities should be a non-stop thrill ride that has me on the edge of my seat. This game provides the opposite experience.

    A challenge to get through...but the frustration level is absolutely massive.

    If there was a little more direction in the missions, and the graphics were a little smoother, and the levels had some consistency in the level of difficulty, it may have been decent. As it stands right now, the game is painfully average.
    • 49 Metascore

    The game design just doesn't come together as a game with any real "fun" to it.
