    Monster Squad is interesting, but unfortunately it's no different from the gaggle of other games out there that see fit to force players into succumbing to frustrating wait times, annoying free-to-play trappings, and premium currency silliness that impedes what could be an interesting riff on the monster collecting genre.

    The biggest criticism, though, is boredom. We just couldn't remain interested, regardless of who we unlocked or what weapons we grabbed.

    There's little reason to fork over $29.99 for a product that feels like it belongs on the iPhone for $1.99.

    The Sims 2: Apartment Pets is a subpar pet game, complete with birds, guinea pigs, snakes and rabbits to interact with and enjoy.

    In addition, the developers made the play area much too small, to the point that you may need to bring the iPhone close to your face to view the action.

    At it's worst, it's a terribly frustrating physics puzzler by anyone's standards, and I'm not sure what the presumed target audience of younger gamers is likely to make of it.

    The most hardcore Splinter Cell fan might want to try to overlook the game's problems for its new levels, I suppose. What's most upsetting is what could have been.

    Bit Dungeon II has a few interesting ideas, but in the end it simply can't execute them all and falls flat on its face.

    Zombies, Run! is stuck in a kind of nether-zone between jogging-aid and game. It lacks the functionality of basic jogging apps, and is ultimately unconvincing as an interactive experience.

    Every mission just ends up being like the previous one in terms of strategy. Unless you're the type of person who likes collecting all sorts of WWII naval memorabilia, I can't see anyone enjoying this game after the first couple of battles.

    Battles has unrealized potential. Whether or not TOME is able to uncover it, unfortunately, remains to be seen.

    Being a hardcore Pokemaniac, it really hurts to see yet another Pokemon game succumb to mediocrity.

    The game does try to differ with unique modes, including Story and Score Attack, but with the faulted gameplay and the basic presentation, the game never really gets over the rainbow.

    Sadly, Centipede Infestation has "first generation 3DS title" written all over it, from the lackluster guns to the average graphics. You may enjoy it in bursts, but don't pay full price.

    While the concept of running around shooting computer-controlled monsters and other players sounds like a fun idea, in practice, it's an awkward mess, thanks to handicaps that have plagued the series for years.

    There's barely any new content to sift through in this third chapter, and most of it fails to impress. Nintendo needs to rejuvenate this brand or scuttle it entirely. We're sick of going through dungeons. Show us something new.

    Had it debuted several years ago, Spider-Man: Edge of Time may have received praise despite its many flaws. Sadly, its shortcomings are unacceptable today, making it yet another casualty in the ongoing terrible comic book video game saga.

    Bottom line, Madden NFL 13 Social wants to satisfy two groups and winds up disappointing both. It lacks the strategic element people love about the annual football sim, but also the high-speed, high scoring thrills of NFL Blitz.

    Sadly, this is little more than an empty shell that reminds us of some college project the student couldn't finish on time.

    Sure, one could make the argument that No Red T-Shirts is strictly for kids, but we'd like to think that even children beyond the age of three would expect a game with more depth.

    Considering the far better platformers that are available on the market, you really shouldn't waste your time with Dafox. It's rather dull, often broken, and it lacks any sort of replay value.

    When a game's so terrible it makes you yearn for the days of Moonwalker on Sega Genesis, there's a problem. Michael Jackson The Experience should have been one of the premier music titles for iPad. Instead, it's one of the worst.

    In 2013, as publishers finally begin to tread the waters of micro-transactions a little more carefully, and with a sensitive eye on the balance between player experience and profitability, this is how Square Enix chooses to reward that devotion, commitment and support of a franchise over all of these years. Depressing is a word too.

    Assassin's Creed Memories tries to piggyback off of the success of the main Assassin's Creed franchise. Unfortunately, it's too confusing and boring to enjoy.

    In all, Dragon Ball: Evolution offers zero redemption for its hefty $40 price tag. Stick with the anime and forget this thing even exists.

    It would've been nice for NFL Pro 2014 to show some signs of improvement over last year's messy offering, but there's barely anything here of merit. Go play Madden instead - any Madden. You'll feel way better.

    As wary as I came in, nothing could have prepared me for just how fundamentally broken this game is. I can only imagine how frustrating this experience would have been to an infant (assumedly, the target audience). What could have been a quick-and-easy cash-in for Majesco, recommendable to the most hardcore of Holly fans, is a complete mess, a Holly Hobbie that nobody could care for and sadly, should have been aborted.

    Dino Master does have some innovation in its game ideas, but they're executed horribly in terms of the terrible presentation and even worse gameplay. It just never structures like it should, and that leaves this smelling like a big bad pile of dino doo-doo.

    Missing personality is bad enough, but terrible gameplay is even worse.

    Don't buy into this Scam.
