    The game doesn't do anything outstanding, nor does it absolutely screw anything up either.

    The bottom line is that Anne's Doll Studio: Tokyo Collection just doesn't have enough options to go the distance.

    Arc Style: Soccer 3D is not the soccer game enthusiasts have been waiting for from the eShop, nor is it a game beginners should play, lest they be turned off soccer games entirely. It just feels as if the developers spent all their time tweaking the character creation options while ignoring the gameplay until the last minute.

    Ben 10: Omniverse has the elements of a great game. The problem lies in how it balances these aspects. The repetitive and numerous combat sequences left me bored and uninterested, while the puzzles leveraging the large cast of aliens were not that prevalent. Fans of the series may still find something due to the source material, but the common consumer should probably steer clear.

    It's bland, boring, and frustrating--and once that kicks in, the only thing that will keep anyone playing is sheer tenacity.

    Indianapolis 500 is still fun, but only if you can overlook the very limited scope of the game.

    Arcade Sports had a lot of potential, but the frustrating control schemes result in a disappointing experience. Considering that all of the game's sports have been done better elsewhere, it is pretty hard to justify a purchase.

    A repetitive, bland game that also happens to be the worst use of a license I've ever seen.

    With Junior Classic Games, you are merely presented with icons that don't even describe what the game might be. How is anyone supposed to understand that the "count the dots" game is the giraffe icon? Its presentation flaws like this that make Junior Classic Games fall far short in a crowded genre.

    Bust-A-Move Universe is a great puzzle game, but unless you're a big fan of the series or a die-hard puzzle fanatic, this is a senseless purchase. You can find similar games online for free or, inevitably, for much cheaper on the 3DS download platforms (when they launch).

    Crash: Mind Over Mutant is a competent platformer. While it leaves much to be desired in terms of depth and level design, fans of the titular Bandicoot or starved DS platform lovers may enjoy it. Others should pass this one by.

    The combination of the lackluster settings and tedious gameplay makes for a disappointing game. Straight up, Ghost Recon is just a pitiful rail shooter, and with the amount of other good rail shooters on Wii, there is no reason to even think about getting this game.

    A disappointment. The focus on gyroscope controls limits the game's level design and makes it awkward and boring for players who use the Circle Pad. With the aid of the level creator, better levels can be made, but the controls are still bad.

    At the end of the day, Football Up Online is a half-baked product.

    Even as a fairly hardcore fan of Spider-Man, I can't recommend the 3DS version. The GameCube Spider-Man games from ten years ago were better than this.

    The gameplay shows a few signs of quality in the story missions, but it falls apart in the horrendous driving sections and bland side missions. Ghostbusters die-hards who only have a DS should look into this game, but everyone else should steer clear.

    The game would’ve been better as a stand-alone Bejeweled cart, with traditional game types like Endless, Time Attack, Vs., etc. As it stands, Galactrix adds way too much unnecessary clutter to the core puzzle game. I know that’s kind of the point, but it just comes off as being unnecessary.

    "Enemies" in this game have absolutely no AI and merely circle a pre-destined path, and you merely are required to avoid them. That’s it. I suppose this is a good thing because actually controlling Zapper is akin to Sisyphus attempting to roll that boulder up the mountain in Hades.

    A decent amount of fun, but it is way too short and requires little thought or skill. Certainly not a title you should spend thirty bucks on.

    If Spirit Camera wasn't so tied to the AR booklet, the experience might be a little better, but the inherent problems with the 3DS' camera sensitivity and being tied to the booklet really drags the game down. Add to that a boring storyline and uninspired puzzles and you're left with a pretty worthless experience. No real reason to pick up this ghost story, folks. The AR games that came with your 3DS are better.

    Even though these songs include vocal harmonies and Pro Drums, you can't make use of it on Wii, since the game runs on the Rock Band 2 engine, which lacks the required functionality.

    The open sea of 3DS software has a bevy of good games to explore but sadly, Romance Dawn isn't one of them.

    The flat multiplayer mode cements Pirates: Duels on the High Seas as a mostly respectable technical effort that simply lacks the requisite dynamism and ingenuity to satisfy as a game based entirely on action.
    • 53 Metascore

    There are a few good ideas sent to die here, and the overall premise of the game is great, but it's all mired in technical problems and awful mission design.

    Unworthy of its namesake, and I really wish the developer had taken its time to study what was great about the original game before starting work on the sequel – the lack of finesse present in CTR really shows.

    Block Factory is a neat idea that is too ambitious for its own good.

    Ratatouille is not really much different in gameplay than most other movie-licensed games; in fact, it may be a bit better since it mooches off an obscure and great source material, Chibi-Robo.

    The game isn't especially good and I can't recommend it. The developer successfully made a game about summer chores feel like a chore, but I don't know if that was the point.

    Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights is interesting only in how miserably it misses the Layton mark. While its presentation is wondrous, the actual game part is terrible. No part of the game succeeds enough to make the other parts worth slogging through. Unless you're hard up for a game that slightly resembles much better games, you are best off avoiding Doctor Lautrec's debut journey at all costs.
