    Saw
    Saw presents an interesting plot and an unexpected and shocking ending, being able to frighten and cause anguish in the player. Too bad all this is partly ruined by a very bad combat system, too few available weapons and flat enemies.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A missed chance, expecially after the very good War for Cybertron. Unpolished and too short, its main value resides in the story bridging the second and third movie.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A too simple and short single player campaing and a flawed and highly unbalanced multiplayer experience make of this title a mediocre mech game.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Spark Unlimited did well with the game's script and the stunning landscapes, but all this gets hindered by a too-repetitive gameplay and an overly slow pace, worsened by the too many and frequent load screens.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A false step for Omega Force, with a lacklustre technical production, bugs and modes scarcity.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An artistically nice action-platformer with a boring and repetitive gameplay.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 57 Critic Score
    A disappointing sequel for Ryu's saga, stripped of all the features that made the previous chapters stand out in the action games crowd.

    Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2 looks too similar to the first game in the series, except for small improvements in graphics and story structure. If you already played the first Raging Blast, this will look like more of the same, control problems included. But if you're a Dragon Ball fan and never played it in the past, you could easily enjoy it.

    A generic shooter that doesn't do enough to justify its price.

    Body and Brain Connection succeeds in keeping our mind agile thanks to new kinds of exercises only possible with Kinect, but it hardly will be able to keep your attenction high for more than few minutes per day. Consider it if you're looking for a challenging mind test, but don't expect a properly entertaining experience.

    Despite the new enemies and other additions, Dead Island: Riptide feels too much like more of the same. Techland had the opportunity to fix many of the flaws of the first game - bad story, technical glitches, repetitiveness - but they did almost nothing about it.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    A step back for the series, with a more repetitive gameplay and not enough differentiation between the classic spidey and the 2099 one.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    Born from a valid and interesting idea, Submerged lacks in execution bringing us a scarcely detailed and too repetitive world, even if it can deliver some stunning panoramas.
    • 56 Metascore

    A very good story and great music are the main upsides in an otherwise weak game both from the technical and gameplay standpoints. If you're great fantasy stories lovers, you could be willing to give it a shot: for every one else there are better games out there.
    • 56 Metascore

    A good party game, mainly thanks to the nice visual stile and the great variety of games: the lack of a true party mode for involving more than two players is disappointing, though.

    A good level design and some good ideas loaned from more successful titles aren't enough to make a good game of Velvet Assassin. Frustration always around the corner and a rough gameplay unavoidably worsen the game experience.

    Kung-Fu High Impact does well on what it promises: immersing the player - both phisically and visually - in a fighting game creating a funny and fresh gaming experience. But once the novelty effect wears off, what's left is a short, repetitive and artistically amateurish game, more suited as a title to show when you've got people at home rather than a real fully-fledged game. It would have been perfect as a Live Arcade game, rather than an overly priced retail Kinect game.

    One of the mostly anticipated Kinect games ended up being one of the sensor's poorest displays. It simply isn't fun even for kids, except for the dance portion of the game. If you can't resist wielding a virtual lightsaber, you might want to wait for a bargain price.

    Spike's new game feels like a missed occasion: due a repetitive and limited gameplay and a bad storytelling, even fans of the series will feel uncomfortable with it.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 62 Critic Score
    The game tries to broaden the series focus to the classic FPS lovers thanks to a more tight and interesting plot, while trying to please the causal public thanks to the new controller gun and a less simulative gameplay. A controversial title, that even if not excelling in any particular area, could be quite interesting for some gamers.

    Rugby World Cup 2011 sports a solid gameplay foundation, but it's dragged down by a mediocre technical production ad the lack of content, limited only to the World Cup teams and competitions.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A delusion in almost every aspect. The free-roaming gameplay, which should have been its strength point, revealed to be instead one of its main shortcomings. Other than the fascinating environments, there aren't many more reasons to buy this game.

    • 70 Critic Score
    MUD's immediate and very arcade experience could disappoint the most serious gamers, but the great number of teams, bikes, riders and tracks coming from the MX1 and MX2 licenses are enough to attract every motocross lover.

    • 55 Critic Score
    THQ's graphic tablet proved to be a solid and well-thought product, but the bundle price is too high for what's inside, due to the lack of quality and contents in the Instant Artist software. Bundling it with Marvel Super Hero Squad or Pictionary - at the same price - would have been a wiser choice.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A disappointing game, ruined by a too short longevity and the complete lack of charm.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    A disappointment. One great problem is the loss of the series' personality, but it's nothing compared to the lack of any play modes other than the 8-hour campaign. EA likely bet all of its money on co-op, but there are better games around with that feature.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Warriors: Legends of Troy brings some novelty to the hack'n slash genre successfully distinguishing its gameplay from the previous Koei productions, but it lacks in some important areas like the only one mode available and short longevity.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    Rise of Nightmares is a missed opportunity. The idea of a first person horror game made more immersive thanks to motion controls is a very good one, but it fumbles in the controls department due to a clunky exploration system and a too simplistic and repetitive combat system. It deserved to be better thought out and developed.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One of the weirdest and deranged games seen on Xbox to date; it manages to deliver lots of surprises to the ones willing to explore its crazy, glitchy world.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 67 Critic Score
    A completely unconvincing campaign is coupled with a good multiplayer with some interesting modes and choices.
