    Young Justice: Legacy proves once again that making a game just for the sake of taping into the appetite for another product, in this case, the cartoon, is a bad idea. Freedom Factory neglected the game all around and only the most enthusiastic fans of the cancelled TV series will enjoy it to some extent.

    Umbrella Corps is a great idea with really poor development and a lousy execution. Somebody should have checked the game twice before release, because the mechanics and gameplay are absolutely awful. The only mode that could keep you relatively engaged would be the single player mode because the multiplayer front is completely deserted.

    Despite its excellent graphics and animations, Beyond Eyes is just a piece of software; one that feels more like a technical demo than a game, properly speaking.

    Just Sing seemed like a good idea when the trailer of the game was first shown... the result is different, though. The companion app does not work as it was supposed to and the experience of a great singing performance is not gratifying. This is merely a poor Just Dance adaptation to a karaoke game. The only salvageable aspect of Just Sing is a music selection made to please all tastes.

    Its gameplay may be solid but Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash is a very weak package that lacks campaign or training modes. You can't help but feel that this was rushed to fill a gap in the Wii U's release calendar for this Christmas. The multiplayer component could at least give some hours of fun to those players looking for a challenge with the best of the best.

    The first 3D simulator of bullfighting. The hideous presentation and repetitive mechanics of Toro greatly hinder what could have been a great game because of its mostly solid foundations. Frankly, a pretty bad defense for such a polemic practice.

    Disney Magical World lacks challenge and appeal, even for a game that's aimed towards kids. The game features lots of content, however, most of it is reused many times, and that turns this “magical adventure” into a tedious and boring experience.

    Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 is the worst entry in a series that was never good anyway. The production values are abysmal and the new features are shallow and insufficient. The game is simply not worth it even if you are a Dead or Alive fan.

    Dollar Dash is a generic multiplayer action game with rusty game mechanics that suffer from an almost nonexistent player base, so you will end up playing against boring bots.

    Visually beautiful but plagued with tedious and sometimes broken gameplay, The Tomorrow Children is a failed Utopia: an amazing concept that somehow has gone very wrong.

    Ryse represents all that is wrong with the current AAA videogame model: it's epic, but superfluous; its main game mechanics are shallow and boring; its plot is full of Hollywood clichés and, in the end, it feels more like a marketing tool than a real effort to provide gamers with something meaningful and with value.

    Risen 3: Titan Lords disappoints on even the most basic elements, which perhaps with a little more time could've been fixed. It's a shame, because we can tell that deep inside lays a game that tries to offer hundreds of hours of fun. Sadly, though, the only surprising thing about this is that it found its way to the shelves.

    Escape Dead Island is a terrible game with substandard graphics, unimaginative and rigid gameplay, convoluted story and unforgivable optimization issues.

    Destroying cities and fighting other Kaijus is fun at first, but the joy Godzilla offers vanishes in a couple of gaming sessions. Godzilla was created for the fans, but at some point the development took a turn for the worse and it ended up turning into a game that would've been better on mobile.

    An insult to thousands of backers, Mighty No. 9 is an exercise in mediocrity aggravated by appealing visuals and performance problems. A train-wreck of a project.

    A lethargic, dismal experience, Federation Force is not the franchise-killing disaster most make it out to be, but it definitely isn't worth your time at all.

    Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal ends up being a product that fails on the most basic design elements, perhaps due to lack of time, money or just love for the franchise. Its pursuit of innovation in gameplay mechanics is commendable, but everything turns into a disaster by notorious negligence on the development side.

    A tedious, dull and repetitive experience, Knack is a charmless launch title that punishes its players with little variety, poor music and an empty, abandoned and joyless game world.

    More of an amateur programming exercise than an actual game, Hunter's Legacy, a Metroidvania without a single slope, pales in comparison with almost every game of the genre in the past 30 years.

    A new low for the series, Five Nights at Freddy's 4 is a poor effort in almost every respect, an exercise in mediocrity better suited for YouTube than for an actual playthrough.

    Tenkai Knights: Brave Battle is a disappointing adaptation that had everything to become an excellent comeback to the days of the GameBoy Advance. Its controls are frustrating, its stages are boring and not very different, and its gameplay is extremely repetitive. With a deeper, or at least better told, story along with improvements in its overall mechanics, this title would have been a much more enjoyable and entertaining experience, but due to all the design flaws it contains, you will not want to play it after trying it for 10 or 15 minutes.

    Abysmal, one of the least interactive videogames ever made by Nintendo. Don't buy this.

    8-Bit Boy gathers elements from various classic platformers, such as Super Mario Bros., without making a fresh contribution of its own. The generic design results in predictable levels and its controls will be a real headache for the players.

    Fighter Within is a boring and mediocre launch title, and basically the worst example of what the new Kinect has to offer.

    The absolute worst Sonic video game.
