    Awful in nearly every way. The Twin Peaks meets Resident Evil with a dash of Grand Theft Auto formula sounds pretty great, but it was well beyond the capabilities of this development team. Terrible controls. Terrible pacing. Terrible sound effects. Terrible visuals.

    This final product feels so worthless at the five dollar price level, in fact, that I wonder whether the Apple owners who downloaded the original version didn't feel a little ripped off after having spent just 99 cents.

    Blood Beach is just bad. Please don't waste the far-too-inflated price of ten dollars to download it.

    There's potential for a good Harry Potter game underneath this pile of broken gameplay.

    Unreal. Does anybody think this game would have had a chance without the license? Better question: how did Apple let this garbage through not once, but twice?

    You should not buy this game because it's not a game, but it is inane, and it is a shame. You should not buy this game, Batman I am.

    Looks unforgivably awful, recycles the middling control system from WCW Mayhem, and builds itself around a gimmick that defeats the purpose of a wrestling game. It's not good, children. Not good at all.

    Hoopz plays exactly like "Showtime," just with more clutter, along with several problematic aspects that drag the game down ever farther into the mindless Midway mind-shaft mire.

    So parents, shy away from this one, lest you wish for a very un-Merry Christmas, and watch your children cry as they curse Santa and throw their PlayStations across the room.

    One of the worst developed games on the system thus far.

    Just downright awful... ugly, clunky, and a chore to play, and should be avoided at all costs.

    The action is so awful that it's only swallowable in extremely short bursts, and having that save RAM means that players can turn this sucker off without remorse.

    This racing game is just downright terrible, with inept programming and graphic design all throughout its production. There's no doubt that is was produced on the cheap.

    From clunky start to sudden finish, Marvel Ultimate Alliance is an ugly, unfun experience that should be an embarrassment to everyone involved in its development.

    I haven't seen a worse classic remake since Atari botched "Pac-Man" on the 2600 more than two decades ago.

    Keep this out of your Xbox, it may infect it. The kind of game that makes you appreciate mediocrity.

    One of the most painful fighting games I've ever experienced...Fifty bucks is a whole lot of money to spend on a good laugh and a table coaster... or a plastic shooting pigeon... or a frisbee... you get the idea.

    I plan on burning my copy so that it can't fall into the hands of impressionable children who might then come to think all video games are meant to suck this bad.

    This game is bad enough that there is practically nothing positive, or even better than absolutely terrible, to say about it.

    A complete bust.

    Trigger Man is unrespectable. It's shoddy, mindless, inane, boring, drab, frustrating, limited, poor, ugly, difficult, stiff, slow, unbalanced, and without a shred of worth when compared to just about anything that has ever existed ("Bad Boys" included).

    After an hour of play you'll have maxed out your character's Accuracy statistic and you'll never miss. The ball bounces off of pins, the pins pass through each other like holograms and occasionally even through the ball.

    Everything about the product is shoddily executed, from its formulaic and outdated gameplay mechanics to its horribly dusty graphic look.

    The folks at THQ have bastardized the fluid skateboarding experience of the Tony Hawk franchise beyond recognition.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    With shallow, boring gameplay complimenting an incoherent story and terrible graphics, there's just no reason to subject yourself to a game this bad.
    • 21 Metascore

    Yes, it's absolutely absurd. And there have been plenty of games before that have hit upon a kind of campy appeal by throwing together similar scattered assortments of oddball ideas -- but this just isn't one of them. The weirdness never makes it into that enjoyable territory -- it just stays weird.

    AMY
    Amy purports itself to be survival horror, but the only surviving you'll be doing is trying to make sense of the muddled gameplay mess laid before you as you're "scared" by the same gimmicky frights, like bursting gas pipes and falling portraits, over and over again.

    A year from now Gettysburg: Armored Warfare could and likely will be a totally different game. But right now this unfinished piece of software isn't worth any amount of money.
