    The game is a simple port of the PC-version, without a good control scheme. There are some fun puzzles, but there are too little to entertain you for hours.

    Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter is a very enjoyable game for a younger audience, but older and more experienced gamers won’t be satisfied with the simple platforming, lame controls and lack of real innovation.

    The small group of people chomping at the bits for a new Painkiller would do well to play Hell and Damnation on a PC. The console-version is ugly, doesn't play well and is a technical mess. Hell will freeze over before you can get a full mutliplayer match going, which says enough.

    Playing through Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 felt more like work than having fun. That has us seriously wondering who this game is meant for. The traditional Castlevania player might get a heart attack from the first enemy that jumps out at you with a laser gun. The Lords of Shadow fan will simply observe regression.

    Lost in Blue 3 is a far from exciting game. It’s not challenging in any way, the minimalistic level design is awful, the mission objectives are unclear, the constant retrieving of water is both boring and frustrating.. I always thought getting stranded on a deserted island was more fun.

    Sonic and the Black Knight is the perfect game to break your arm. The only thing you do is sweeping around the Wiimote, which is really boring. We could say "better luck next time", but to be honest: We don’t believe in a good Sonic-game anymore.

    Konami might stand at the berth of the music genre with games like Beatmania, DDR and Guitar Freaks, but Rock Revolution fails in almost all the aspects that make the Rock Band and Guitar Hero franchises so good. It just doesn’t play as well, has fewer options and the soundtrack is mediocre at best. This game just doesn’t cut it with the franchises it desperately tries to be.

    There’s nothing wrong with barely clothed gals trashing through hordes and hordes of zombies. But when one button appears to be the only one you’ll be using for killing enemies, the concept suddenly becomes a lot less appealing. Those that are looking for a good zombie slasher should stick to Dead Rising or wait for it’s sequel. Hey, that game has some hot babes too you know.

    Dead to Rights: Retribution is a big disappointment. The gameplay is boring from start to finish and has a lot of visual flaws.

    Heroes Over Europe is a stripped down game and will be fairly forgotten with all the great games coming out this fall. Only the die-hard WWII and airplane fans will find this a great game to fly with the Spitfire or the Messerschmitt. The rest of the world will find this game very disappointing and probably won’t be interested. The missions are mostly the same and aren’t very exiting. The Ace Kills can be taken out of the game, and the game is not very pretty.

    Sudou Ball Detective is like oil on water. The game doesn’t seem to succeed to mix Sudoku puzzles with a story. The amount of puzzles, 240, seems impressive, but is nothing compared to the million in Platinum Sudoku on the Nintendo DS.

    Inazuma Eleven Strikers is like eggs without bacon; it's just not finished. The game misses a grand story that ties all the matches together, because the gameplay itself is too weak to do that. Strikers misses every good thing the Inazuma Eleven series has ever given us and even the flashy animations the Wii puts on the screen can't make us forget this.

    007: Legends plays like a generic shooter and doesn't even come close to a worthy tribute to fifty years of Bond movies. The game is just way too predictable, incohesive, uninspired, cheap and bland. If 007: Legends was a martini, it would be stirred, not shaken.

    Knack is a redundant and simplistic game that doesn’t convince as a next gen launch title. The combat and enemies create an annoying gameplay cycle, and the badly written story offers no reason to keep playing. Knack isn’t the fantastic next-gen exclusive we hoped it would be.

    Developer Milestone completely lost sight of the show elements of motocross, which makes MXGP feel kind of lame. A shame, because we're really itching for a new good motocross game.

    I've never played such a boring game as Terminator Salvation: The Videogame. The game is repetitive and the storytelling very shallow. It's a big plus that finishing the game will only take you about three to four hours. Even the very reasonable cover system can't let you enjoy this simple and boring movie game.

    X-Blades starts like a real great game. There’s a girl and she cuts everyone open with her sword. How much can you get? Not much! As a bonus, we get to see an almost naked girl, carrying way too heavy swords. But even this gets boring after a while. Fight after fight where you have to push one button isn’t fun. Even all the nakedness of the game doesn’t cover that fact up.

    Spending time on playing Tornado has been very unrewarding for me. Even after finishing the game, I didn’t feel like I had accomplished anything. To me, it felt more like a warmed up glass of beer on a hot summer day. Tornado simply doesn’t meet the demands of a videogame in the year 2008, so my advice to you is this: let this game blow over, and wait for something else.

    The visuals in Naruto: Ninja Destiny II are pretty okay and the fact that you can unlock Hokages is pretty cool, but this doesn’t save the game. The Battle controls are very bad, which is a sin for a fighting game, the game is not original and in the end not fun to play.

    Star Wars: The Clone Wars – Republic Heroes is not a great game full of bugs. The gameplay is very repetitive and is skipping once in a while, often the camera isn’t positioned right and you can’t see were to go. But the ambiance and the story seem to fit the TV-series very well. Star Wars is one of my favourite film series ever and there are a lot of games out there, but Republic Heroes is doing too much in a wrong way to get a positive grade.
