    As a fan of G.I. Joe, I expect a videogame version to make me feel like a Real American Hero. This didn't come close. The gameplay is unexciting and the visuals uninspired.

    Takes a turn for the worse by adding too much nonsense and dumbing-down the classic Frogger gameplay. The level designs don't add any new ideas to what's already been done for the series.

    It is the very definition of an average game, and does nothing to pay homage to the original movie, merely taking up six times the shelf space it should and damning any of the current platforms to yet another throwaway licensed game that simply wasn't needed.

    It doesn't matter whether you play this one with motion controls or the Classic Controller: Tournament of Legends is not a good fighting game.

    So while its challenge factor is perfectly tuned for beginners and its two-dollar asking price is rather nice, the frightfully brief total play time makes Sokomania difficult to recommend.

    Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 has a few pretty good minigames, a lot of mediocre ones, and a couple terrible ones. Add on to that a forced repetition system and a story that is insultingly glossed over and the title resembles something that the Rabbids themselves may have developed.

    As an educational tool, Dora Saves the Mermaids falls flat. As a simple distraction, it falls short, and as a game that is meant to get adults in on the action to help out, it isn't really a very collaborative experience.

    There have been virtually zero upgrades outside of the four-player versus modes, which lends little reason not to go back and play SNES version which featured both Dr. Mario and Tetris...This doctor's Ph.D. expired long ago.

    The Third Wave doesn't manage to achieve consistent entertainment, though, and is challenging for generally the wrong reasons.

    The DS version of MySims SkyHeroes is oddly more complicated and way less fun than the console versions.

    Monsters vs. Aliens' biggest issue is just that it's so damned repetitive. What could have been entertaining in smaller doses instead drags on far too long, is recycled into tedium and ends up relegating the experience to the same bargain bin as just about every other licensed game.

    It's all the the service of a fighting game that doesn't work.

    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 should be the last Tiger game to make its way onto the PS2. The almost total lack of effort to change anything since the '09 edition is disappointing to say the least.

    It’s a nice idea and it’s fun for a few rounds, but it’s boring as heck after that.

    Lollipop Chainsaw doesn't even attempt to differentiate itself from the genre, and most of what it does try new in the realm of its characters and writing ultimately ends up taking away from an incredible-on-paper action game.

    So My Asian Farm, like My Farm, My Exotic Farm and My Australian Farm before it, is all around average. Spend your two dollars elsewhere for a more exciting game.

    Loudly, pointedly, and conspicuously refuse to buy this game or have anything to do with it.

    The music and sidekick are really all you can rely on to stay great from start to finish. The rest of Lollipop Chainsaw is all over the place before it ultimately settles for mediocrity and disappointment.

    I can't really see anyone putting more than an hour into Voodoo Dice, even if they somehow convinced themselves it was worth a purchase -- it's just not that special.

    Then there's the control scheme, a horribly innovative design where you can't simply toggle the scope with the right mouse button and zoom in and out with the scroll wheel.

    Playing Whack-a-Mole with our left hand isn't going to make us comfortable with our left hand. If the game was more accurate in it's measurement of skill, and there was a way to track progress, then it would at least be somewhat useful.

    Though it ultimately fails, it doesn't seem as if this was a game just thrown together. Work was put into 5th Grader, but it falls short of other quiz games on Xbox 360. If you're truly smarter than a fith grader, you'll pass on this game.

    Hopefully, City Interactive can bring something more fleshed out to the table next time.

    In many ways, the only reason to play through Code Veronica is to truly appreciate what RE 4 and RE 5 managed to do. Unfortunately not all titles age equally.

    There are plenty of other games on Nintendo’s little handheld that warrant your money over yet another Capcom rehash.

    Regardless of what actually went on during the course of development, whatever innovations they achieved are overshadowed by annoying combat mechanics and shallow gameplay loops.

    Webster's New World College Dictionary Fourth Edition defines bland as "tasteless, insipid, dull, etc." I describe bland as "Iron Man."
