    I found the games uninspiring, difficult to control and choppier than Steak-Ums.

    As much time that actually went into the game (almost an embarrassing amount of time), the game felt unpolished like you were playing a beta version of it.

    My excitement was diminished after a good 20 minutes or so, and the tactics I was looking to learn from this title did not transpire when playing Halo 2. And in the end, my comrades over on Xbox Live were still there to ridicule me of my purchase, so I am here to inform you not to make the same mistake I have. Stay away.

    The puzzles are easy, the game gives you more health power-ups than you will ever use, and there isn't a single enemy that's remotely challenging after you pick up the second gun frame in the Prologue. All the "innovation" that this game was supposed to entail amounts to nothing but a big pile of Company Dinner-Fed, Marketing Grade manure.

    There's cheesecake here, there's just not anything else. I think if they revamped this to fix the graphics, and plug in a deeper fighting interface with gauges and such to facilitate playability from the masses, they could pimp this out to be a rival to the "Dead or Alive" series.

    Grandia III is one of those games that you enjoy enough while you play, but afterwards, you can’t remember for the life of you why. Everything in this game has been done before better elsewhere.

    With software as well as hardware fiercely competing for recognition, Crash falls far short of the mark and when compared to others in the genre looks pathetic.

    The game, much like the movie gets passed off as uninspired, and a reason to have some explosions. If you're cool with that, you'll be cool with this.

    Awful, awful showing, guys. I'm hard pressed to think of another existing franchise that has followed up a hit with such an utter mess.

    Overall, SRS is a fairly average racing game that seems to rely too much on its one gimmick of winning girlfriends and not enough on actually being a fun racer.

    Iron Man is strictly about the suit. It's almost like the video game was based entirely around the suit, with a few levels thrown in for good measure.

    Merely an average third-person shooter that happened to take place in snapshots of things I’ve already seen in a hundred Clint Eastwood or John Wayne westerns.

    There are many better DDR mixes out there, ones with actual challenge and ones where you can use better third-party mats. It's not that DDR Mario Mix is bad. It just doesn't take enough classic DDR elements and bogs the game down with too much extraneous junk.

    Then there's stuff that's just disgraceful to Asian people in general. For instance, Li Mei looks like she's a drug-addled prostitute. And this is before she gets punched in the face.

    They tried to cram too many unusual features into the game, and though each is interesting and has potential individually, the resulting hodgepodge is no better than the average RPG.

    The core game is still in there in Command, but it's buried under layers of gimmicky interfaces and an atrocious framework.

    With a very loose control system and a steep, steep learning curve, this game is for Hardcore (capital H) Star Wars fans. Any other fan of any other game will be easily bored.

    A decidedly average hockey game in a field of above average hockey games.

    You’ll blow through some levels with such ease you’ll get bored, then you’ll die numerous times trying to navigate a course, guessing what the controls will do.

    About as flat, mediocre, and average as a game can be. Underachieves throughout.

    An extremely average first person shooter.

    Stick with a two-night rental here folks, because you won't be getting airsick from the intense reality and high speed action... but because the game is incomplete and yucky.

    The game feels rushed and cheap. With the wide variety of games to choose from in the PS2 library, it would be strange to even give a recommendation to rent this game.

    Sega, however, has seen fit to present the games in such an unflattering collection as to present players with a difficult choice: Do I support the half-assed porting of some of gaming's most treasured titles to current systems, thus ensuring that future retro releases for the company will be as dismal? Or do I withhold my money and wait for Sega to release an unfettered, improved version of the games -- a release that may not come due to supposedly lackluster performance and a dearth of interest?

    Probably the worst game of the year, and definitely on my top 20 worst games ever. It was truly disappointing. The bottom line here is that the game was severely rushed.

    There are glitches upon glitches in the online version of this game, infesting the very area of the game that would have made it the finest in its class. Sometimes you cannot access the online mode. Sometimes, upon accessing it, you find your transmission games (games via email) frozen forever. You can play around the glitches until your FC becomes unplayable.

    Despite my many complaints, Diner Dash is not a lost cause. It is still a fun game, but the price is way too high to justify a purchase under any circumstances. I would recommend this game, but only as a rental or if you can buy it for under $20.

    There is no attempt at a quality title at all, this is a rushed copycat job in every way shape and form.

    Besides the creativity that was put in to add those 100 new cards, this is actually quite a lazy game.

    For RPG purists, Evolution can barely break the mold of mediocre. Small frustrations end up being large problems. Issues like endless dungeons, no exploration and mind-numbing stories quickly become an anathema.

    A game based on a boring game, eh? Well, it's no surprise that this one will end up boring as well.

    The aural aspects are equally uninspiring. While there is nothing wrong with them, they are simply not very impressive at all.
