    My only real complaint is that this entire game is dull. Even with the option to play this with 3 other people, I hardly see any area of this game that multiplayer would make more enjoyable.

    It’s obvious that the game is garbage, but what makes it worse is the blatant descent from the developers. Everything from the “sweet still shots” to the marketing of how great the “low level combat” was is all a complete lie and Digital Impressions should be ashamed for using cheap tactics merely to sell a few copies of their game.

    This game misses the point and misses it badly. At first glance, the barely above average graphics, the hip-hop version of NFL uniforms, and the bone cracking sound during gameplay certainly seem like the game will have potential. But for the reasons stated in this review, no serious football gamer will play this longer than a week.

    To make matters worse, there are long loading times in the game. Mega Man X7 is one of those games where the player will be afraid to press the wrong button on the menu screens, because doing so will lead to much waiting and thumb-fiddling.

    Bad controls, bad story, and bad code add up to make this is a bad game.

    The music...oh please, don't get me started on that. It's like someone is playing a muted tape deck in the background.

    Aside from a weak combat system and poorly designed jumping puzzles, the game is just a tedious scavenger hunt that usually feels more like work than entertainment.

    The pathetic attributes of this failed experiment are disgusting. Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter is a poor excuse for an RPG. It is an attempt at innovation, perhaps. But it can also be the lazy solution for a group of developers who didn't want to put in the time to make a quality RPG.

    Sonic Heroes takes a simple concept and makes it complex seemingly for the sake of complexity, and the result is an overly frustrating game that feels more like work than fun.

    The game falls short of expectations, and will not appeal to anybody but the most hardcore adventure gamer.

    Games based on the Olympics have changed very little since the days of Epyx Summer games and Konami’s Track & Field series, and this is not a good thing.

    Sure Street Fighter II is here, but if you’re a hardcore gamer, you probably already own at least one version of that. That means the number of actual, playable classics on this disc is reduced to just Final Fight, Forgotten Worlds, and Mercs. Do you really want to buy this disc just for those three?

    I really wanted to like you, Brooktown. I mean, like like. But the problem of shallow, unrealistic gameplay and an unreasonable time limit scheme just is too overbearing.

    Honestly, there are good ways to do a rail shooter on the Wii; this is a poor start, but at least it, like Umbrella itself, will serve as a shining example of what not to do.

    A good idea ruined by a design team that tried to get too cute. This game would have been a classic if they worked the upgrade system on your craft's gunnery into your planetside firearm, and gave you, the character stats and upgradeables as well.

    Easy, pointless missions, with a bad AI, and staff who can't write? Simpsons Comic Guy would say it best: Worst...Strategy RPG...EVER.

    This game had its day in the sun, in the mid-80s. It's one of those games that should have been left there. Gyruss' tube control and display mechanics do not translate over well to an analog stick and a distant TV display.

    The races are simply formulaic and far too easy- if your horse matches up at all with the other horses, you are going to win as long as you can press the A button.

    It is games like Death by Degrees that make the public shun games and dismiss them as the trifles of a child. Overt sexual overtones, but no actual nudity, and gameplay that consists of an insipid story combined with shallow, random acts of nigh-impossible, pseudo-heroic violence. Sounds like something aiming straight for the 12-15 year old demographic to me.

    Nice eye candy, but without any substance. The features that made the PC version so addictive and well balanced are all gone, and what remains is only a shell of the original game, which is little more than an unresponsive electronic sandbox.

    This game easily lacks more depth than any game that I have played in the past year, if not longer.

    Yeah, the art direction is incredible. While the story isn't particularly mind-blowing, it is serviceable and entertaining. But the control scheme is so awful and frustrating, clearing the game is more a matter of patience with poor layout than any skill or talent.

    The graphics are dull and lifeless, the sound is awful, and the gameplay has been completely ruined, and if that's not enough to deter you from purchasing the game, EA's blatant disrespect for the great sport of boxing and its colorful history should do the trick.

    The gameplay itself is clumsy and lends badly to the game's battles and the overall sound presentation was simply not too exciting. All I can say is avoid this game at all costs. Rule of Rose is no fun to play nor is it any fun to experience.

    Sadly, it's gotten to the point where you can't even feel sorry for Sega anymore. They've just put out so many bad games, and made so many bad decisions recently, that you realize that if you support them they're just going to parlay that support into something utterly stupid...like this.

    The game bases itself on immense amounts of repetition, which is an absolute dealbreaker. There is absolutely no reason to even rent this game; it's just not worth it.

    Gorgeous cities and interesting villains aside, it is the developer’s fundamental inability to provide interesting challenges for Superman that make this title a flop.

    Treasure threw together this game that, beyond the art style, barely resembles the original game at all. In fact, if not for the cameos of the original game's characters at opportune times, I would have sworn that this wasn't a sequel, thematic or otherwise, at all.

    Unless you decide to blow huge amounts of cash on the nicest floor pads available (and I mean the top-of-the-line metal ones, not the excellent Ignition pads that RedOctane puts out), this game is unplayable except with a standard controller. And let’s face it, this game is Dance Dance Revolution, not Finger Tap Revolution.

    Sneaking around the camp is a joke. Toni Kukoc has more defensive skill than all these Germans put together...if it weren't for "Tsunami 2265" putting forth such a solidly bad performance, this would be my pick for Worst Game of the Year.
