    Despite the great concepts Supercar Street Challenge falls flat in almost every place that it could have been spectacular.

    Acclaim really disappointed me. The wrestling engine is very slow. It's interesting but going through Career Mode got old really fast.

    This might still cut it if the competition hadn't already pulled ahead, but unfortunately for Asmik, it most emphatically has.

    Clunky, methodical, and definitely on the boring side, Mucky Foot's latest creation should have spent a little more time in the dark before coming into the sunlight.

    The interface and presentation elements are nice to look at, but when that's the biggest thing your game has going for it, you are in real trouble.

    Freedom was a game I played because I was getting paid to do so. And now that this review is done, I'm never, ever going back.

    If Mayday sounds like an okay game so far, let me hit you with the clincher: the AI and unit selection is atrocious to point of being unforgivable.

    Doesn't play well, doesn't look good, and has little to offer anybody, and what remained the biggest problem in the end, is that it's just not fun.

    When six baseball games compete on the same system in the same season, and you're the worst of those six games, it's time to hang up the cleats.

    The arcadey physics and simple tracks make for a pretty bland experience.

    It's been said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but this is practically a slap in the face of a title that works really well.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    The game is full of bugs and glitches that make it almost impossible to play, and the few additions with the X-Factor and "redefined" Freestyle Superstar controls don't make enough impact on the game to make it playable or enjoyable.

    Take away the name and there's little here that resembles the long-running franchise at all. And while playing through different eras of the Trek timeline is a great concept, and definitely has its appeal, the actual gameplay doesn't do it justice.

    In a game where the illusion of a dynamic, realistic world is so crucial to the experience, technical bugs and awkward design decisions do a marvelous job at hamstringing Gothic III's gameplay.

    At one point, Lair looked like one of the most promising titles coming to the PS3, but the final version -- even with its interesting story, occasionally impressive graphics and amazing score -- falls well short of anything you should be playing.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    It manages to be both convoluted and shallow all at the same time. Playing this game can literally be related to Lost in Space.
    • 44 Metascore

    Godzilla fans deserve better than this. Unleashed isn't pretty, isn't compelling, and isn't nearly as fun as stepping into the skin of giant monsters should be. Everything about this game is phoned in.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    Both the presentation and the gameplay mechanics are dated by today's standards, and yet if you grew up with games of this type, you may find yourself more forgiving of the title's shortcomings than new-generation players will be.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    Unfortunately, extremely shallow and simplistic play without the tiniest hit of challenge really makes this a weak pretender to "Bejeweled"'s throne.
    • 43 Metascore

    The visual style will bring feelings of nostalgia to those who are old enough to remember the original, but like most classic XBLA releases the notion is fleeting. Once it wears off all you’re left with is a game that controls poorly and isn’t all that much fun to play.

    The game is obviously geared most toward the younger set, but even kids like a bit of challenge, right?

    Fans of the webslinger will be disappointed at the toned down, clunky controls. The villains turned ally premise is kind of neat, but proves to be more of a frustration than anything.

    NBA Live 08 is EA’s weakest attempt on Wii thus far, hands down. It lacks the polish, depth, or passion of any of the other motion projects had, removing full modes and options of the other console versions while also skipping on any of the expected Wii additions.

    Godzilla fans deserve better than this. Unleashed isn't pretty, isn't compelling, and isn't nearly as fun as stepping into the skin of giant monsters should be. Everything about the game is phoned in. That said, my four-year-old nephews have a blast with it.

    This is the epitomy of a movie tie-in hack job. Low production values, monotonous gameplay, and lackluster visuals make this a story you can jump past.

    A weak choice for a racing game, be it offroad or not. There are numerous problems relating to the controls, track design, presentation and so forth. If you're interested in an MX or ATV title, check out the previous release, MX vs. ATV Unleashed as it's much better.
