    Dull and monotonous with little interactivity, the game is almost completely devoid of fun because of poor design choices and the worst example of Sixaxis support we've seen yet.

    The credits for Orbs of Doom reveal that the Quality Assurance team was the largest group that worked on the game. My question is: what were they doing with their time instead of testing Orbs of Doom?

    It's not funny and it's not fun to play. If the developers had simply fine tuned the collision detection it probably would have been fine.

    It would be nice to see somebody develop a game with a character that can fire two weapons independently but then again maybe there's a reason why nobody's done it yet. Drake tried, but like we said nobody has done it yet.

    There is absolutely no advantage to playing this game since even the single-player game is an eye-gouging, horribly monotonous experience.

    A giant waste of money. The game is boring as a singleplayer title and it doesn't hold up at all without the arcade wheel. Spend your $5 on a cheeseburger or couple slices of pizza instead - those ten minutes you'll take to eat will be far more enjoyable than any time you'll spend with this (and better for you, too).

    The last time I tested the online multiplayer, it froze my Xbox 360 completely, forcing me to shut the system off and restart. Needless to say, I didn't make another attempt.

    Don't be fooled; you will not be playing baseball in this game. Instead you'll be treated to six random mini-games, all of which have almost nothing to do with America's favorite pastime. You play as well-known major league players, but that's about as far as the MLB license is taken.

    Not a good game on the PSP in any way shape or form. In fact, it's one of the most boring and poorly produced titles I've yet played for the system. Steer clear at all costs.

    At $5, HB Arcade Cards actually provides less functionality than a $1 pack of cards. Do not download.

    To make matters much worse, there’s no online play – not like that should be a surprise – or online functionality of any kind in MLB 2K10. There’s no career mode, no homerun derby; there’s basically nothing to justify the money that you just plopped down if you currently have this in your DS.

    Even ignoring its frequent crashes and bugs, Legends Of Dawn's clumsy roleplaying systems and combat are poorly done. But you can't ignore those issues. This amateur roleplaying game shouldn’t even be sold as it is, let alone purchased and played. If you already did, the most efficient way to deal with it is to delete it from your hard drive and demand a refund.

    With annoying characters, a dumb story, and outdated graphics, there’s not much that makes playing Natural Doctrine worth the stress.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 27 Critic Score
    Poor graphics, horrible animation and the lack of any challenge far outweigh whatever story this game might have.

    There's little redeeming about a title that originally held such promise. Instead of being showered with creative gifts, hilarious jokes, and unflinching social commentary we get bludgeoned with tired toilet humor, witless satire, and artless gameplay. Let's just keep it simple. Don't buy this game. It's terrible.

    Ugly is the word best used to describe Family Feud. It's clunky, slow-moving, poorly drawn, and has an AI that's as dumb as a box of rocks. In short, it just isn't any fun to play.

    The visuals are first-generation PS2 at best, landing a fish is a total mess of gameplay, overlapping VO, and broken camera shots, and the experience is far from worthy of its $50 price tag.

    Do not buy this game. Do not look at this game. Do not think about this game and hopefully the sales will send the message that ports like this won't fly -- especially when stuff like Disgaea runs flawlessly on the PSP.

    The simple truth is that the generic MC Groovz Dance Craze is a broken GameCube game. The dance work doesn't match with the music and therefore the title's dance challenges are not fun.

    This thing is a real banana in the tailpipe of Dreamcast racing. Stay far, far away...it may be contagious.

    It's gesture recognition is abysmal, its fighting is shallow, and it wastes too much time trying to clumsily tell a silly, unnecessary story. In short, it's everything Microsoft promised Kinect 2.0 wouldn't be.

    An all around mess of a game, Mike Tyson Heavyweight Boxing is officially one of (if not THE) worst examples of digital boxing we've ever seen.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 26 Critic Score
    It's a repulsive cocktail of inconvenience, design missteps and frustration that fails to entertain on any level. Quite simply, if you buy this game, you are wasting your money.

    I think that there's just too much to this game to be ported to the PlayStation with it's limited memory, and the design team didn't seem to cut corners in the right places.

    It's a totally weak rally game through and through, with bad control, no real sense of rally driving (unless you like to feel completely out of control).
    • 49 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    The game suffers from an excess of slowdown, doesn't move nearly as fast as the 32-bit version, and simply lacks any of the addictive qualities that made it so enjoyable on PlayStation.

    Like everybody in the office has said to me at one point while I was playing Godai, "I wish this game would Go Die!"
    • 38 Metascore

    Not fun, and not funny. Thus, this game fails on both levels.

    There are so many better options available in the "tycoon" genre, and this latest incarnation is an abomination to all that is holy and sacred. Stay far, far away.

    Do not purchase Evil Prophecy. Do not rent it. Avert your eyes should it be demonstrated near you. And, if ever you meet a suicidal man, direct him to this article and assure him that things can always be worse.
