    The gameplay is amazingly terrible, the audio and visual production is a joke, and the actual act of fishing won’t hold up against Radica’s Bass Fishin’ games, much less any actual DS or GBA cart.

    A classic arcade game is absolutely destroyed by horrendously clunky and totally unnecessary touch screen controls, and no amount of Pokemon-style collection can save it.

    If it’s about delivering a quality gaming experience to the younger crowd, however, the series has again missed the mark. Being a children’s product is no justification for sub-par quality.

    The DS version is simply a two-screen edition of the absolutely atrocious Game Boy Advance version released last year, and other than the addition of two player support, there's nothing new. And nothing's improved.

    There’s simply no getting around it; Legend of the Dragon is a sub-par effort, and should be avoided at all costs.

    Bore fest.

    It's certainly not worth 30 dollars, as its control, graphics, sound and any other aspect you can name are all found lacking.

    This is just a terrible game, and Jonathan Farrell needs to find himself a better job.

    M&M's Kart Racing is particularly poor, and, sadly, is actually not as appealing a product as Data Design Interactive's "Myth Makers: Super Kart GP." At least that game has items, shortcuts and four-player support, even if it is plagued by its own set of problems.

    The gameplay comes across as messy and incomplete, the arrangement of hazards and threats from monsters is ineffective at best and boring at worst.

    Even the superior mouse and keyboard configuration can't overcome the technical issues. If you need a shooter, look elsewhere, because Legendary isn't close to what its namesake claims to be.

    An undeniably bad product and not worth your consideration at all.

    A true cash-in project that ignores some of the great control fundamentals laid down with Nintendo's game for an unintelligent waggle-and-win design.

    The gameplay isn't fun, the levels are too long, the sound is bad, and the story isn't interesting. There are more problems, but I'll leave my written flogging at that. Avoid this game at all costs.

    You can do much better things with five dollars. Buy yourself some marbles. Buy your five friends some gum. Or maybe you'd like a yo- yo? I honestly don't care if you throw your five dollars in the trash. Just don't buy this game.

    With a hobbled online multiplayer mode, lackluster graphics and boring gameplay, there’s little redeeming about Double D Dodgeball. Dodge this one.

    The game doesn’t do anything it promises to do, especially train you properly, and anyone that could use this program would have no need for it since they already know how to practice yoga.

    I could keep going at pointing out the further flaws to be found in Bratz Kidz, or Bratz Kidz Slumber Party, or whatever this game ultimately decides to call itself -- but I'm sure you've got the right idea by now. This is a poorly conceived mini-game collection featuring even poorer presentation, and should be avoided by even the most dedicated fans of the Bratz brand.

    If development studio Fun Labs was going for an arcade fishing experience, it missed the point. There are no exotic fish species and the action that comes with hooking a fish is mundane. If the objective was to make a simulation, they forgot to add any features to make it feel real.

    While I've never been to prison, Prison Tycoon 4: SuperMax paints a pretty good picture of what the painful experience must be like.

    The only thing crazy about this mouse is that he got his own game that isn't some free-to-play Flash disaster. Instead it's 400 Microsoft Points and not worth every cent.

    Sure, you can make the argument that this game’s only five bucks, but honestly after experiencing the awful gameplay of The Incredible Maze I would have rather spent those Wii Points on something else. The worst of the NES Virtual Console games is probably better than this WiiWare rushjob.

    Seriously, there's no reason to play this game. The controls are a pain, the graphics are bad, there's next to no sound, and the objectives are dumb.

    Imagine: Wedding Designer can only be defined as a game in the loosest of terms. There's no challenge involved, no skill necessary and no way to get back the time you waste playing.
