    The lack of fun is our main gripe about Shrek Super Party. And isn't that the reason we play games?
    • 47 Metascore

    The adventure is also far too short and easy -- you can complete the entire game (100%) in less than two hours -- even while struggling with some counterintuitive (because of control) levels.

    It also has a horrendous camera system, random trucks with no stats, terrible voice acting, badly designed courses, and characters that look so bad they're funny.

    For the Vita, this is inexcusable. Dreary, washed out colors make the LEGO elements indistinguishable from the non-LEGO ones, which robs the former of its trademark charm, and the latter of its magical ambiance.

    Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter is a very bad game on the PlayStation 2. It's terrible from a technical standpoint, and nothing else about its design really brings it out of the gutter.

    One of the most frustrating games we've played in quite some time. The driving and scoring models are simply unforgiving at best and broken at worst. Unless you want numerous reasons to throw your controller through your television, avoid this at all costs.

    Novadrome just turns out to be a generic, vanilla action-racer with little going for it. XBLA doesn't offer too many racing games yet, so it's tempting to buy this, but even though it hardly costs anything, it's not worth the time.

    With all of the gameplay here being decidedly sub-par, the third volume should just scrap any remnants of gameplay and become one long, non-interactive cutscene. Put it onto a DVD and charge fans of the show $10 to get more of their fix, but for the love of that is good in gaming just don't make a game out of it.

    It’s the kind of game that makes you want to write 43 and a half pages of cuss words, slam your head on your desk 13 times and hope and pray that you don’t remember having ever played it when you wake up. This game is just plain bad.

    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.

    There just isn't much content here. It's another clunky, ugly Wii game that consists of waving your arms around looking like a jackass.
    • 46 Metascore

    The game's unbalanced gameplay, poor level and game design, and dreadful music all make for an experience that is little better than going to a urologist the day after Christmas.

    If there was any sort of atmosphere at all, Bicycle Casino could offer some value for amusement's sake, but it's a pretty laughable experience and not one worth the $30.

    Max Steel should be at the bottom of everyone's wish lists (or steel-toed boots, whichever you prefer).

    Ken's Rage 2 doesn't just exhibit poor execution, but poor understanding of what it's attempting to accomplish. Simple does not have to mean shallow, but that's precisely what it boils down to here.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 36 Critic Score
    Best used as an alternate to torture when countering annoying relatives or bothersome houseguests.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 36 Critic Score
    The fighting system itself is has a few interesting features, but almost everything else about the game will either frustrate or annoy. The camera, the enemy A.I., almost every aspect of the graphics, the sound effects and the required mini-games are all decidedly sub-par.

    The biggest problem with Eternal Night is just how pointlessly difficult it is.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 36 Critic Score
    The game looks mediocre, but passable on the PSP, its audio component doesn’t add much at all, and, its gameplay is simple and unimaginative. Honestly, I don’t think this game has one redeeming quality.

    Darkest of Days indeed. This first-person shooter from 8monkey Labs fails on nearly all fronts. A promising narrative setup is roasted over a bonfire of mangled mechanics, poor presentation, and sloppily implemented missions and objectives.
    • 53 Metascore

    While the intentions were good, the actual execution is a foul mess.

    There's a lot of utterly stupid crap in Bad Boys: Miami Takedown, and yet it's kind of enjoyable in an "I love watching car wrecks" kind of way.

    It didn't take long at all before I was frustrated with the controls and sickened by the almost frightening overuse of motion-blur. Everything about Driven is just lackluster.

    After beating Evil Dead: Hail To The King within a few hours, despite frustratingly bad control, poor gameplay design, and mediocre visuals, there's only one thing left to say: This game sucks.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 36 Critic Score
    An awful mess of lengthy loading times, terrible camera angle control, and a slowness of gameplay that makes this one of the most disappointing games to come out this year.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 35 Critic Score
    A low budget, no fun, sad entry into the gaming world. Avoid it.

    ...This is not just a bug, this feels like the confluence of at least three different bugs working together. The folks at Sony QA must have just thrown up their hands and said "Ship that sucker."
    • 57 Metascore
    • 35 Critic Score
    The game is sloppily made...a weak effort in every facet of its creation.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 35 Critic Score
    This game makes no freakin' sense whatsoever. It's so maddening in its incoherence, it'll make you grab your temples in pain and moan like a llama with a hangover. It's adventure gaming at its worst and it'll suck the brain cells out of your head quicker than you can say "Doh!"
