    The majority of Ant Nation is a slow-paced, disturbing affair with little variety. It controls well, but that's about the only good thing about it. Unless you're starved for ant simulation games, this should be left on the virtual shelf.

    Dirt 2 is as vanilla a racer as you're going to find on Wii. There are some unlockable videos and vehicle skins, but this is a very generic package that feels like it was phoned in.

    Hubert the Teddy Bear: Winter Games is not a worthwhile investment. The game feels very rushed and repetitive, and it would’ve been nice to see Teyon spice up the game a little.

    I suppose my question is this: why buy How to Train Your Dragon when you can buy Pokemon games on the DS instead?

    Racquet Sports is a great idea, as it takes the great Tennis and Ping Pong parts of the Wii Sports games and gives them the main focus. However, this idea is executed terribly, since the games are malformed versions of their Wii Sports counterparts with a heavy emphasis on mindless gestures, and less emphasis on solid gameplay.

    Were the controls, use of characters, and game variety given a boost in quality, Manic Monkey Mayhem could potentially warrant its 800 Wii Point ($8) price tag. With no such improvements in sight, Manic Monkey Mayhem is a WiiWare game to avoid.

    Cybertron Adventures has way too many problems to be worth your time. The lackluster and unstable gameplay make the whole experience unfufilling.

    No matter how many modes the game claims to have, Deca Sports 3 is too poorly designed to be entertaining, and when your standard motion controls are better than the enhanced MotionPlus controls, something is horribly wrong here.

    This is one title that should be skipped regardless if you are a fan of the franchise or not.

    Overall, Beyblade: Metal Fusion is a big disappointment for me. The extremely ridiculous storyline is just uninspired, and the battles get monotonous. Fans of the franchise may gain something out of it, but everyone else should stay away.

    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.

    "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 complete waste of time and money. In the two or three hours it takes to beat the game, there isn’t a single moment of true entertainment or thrill.

    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.

    Exactly like every other cookie-cutter movie/cartoon-licensed platformer.
    • 58 Metascore

    Just tedious.

    To sum up Spyro Orange in one sentence: I'd rather slam my fingers in my desk drawer than play those mini-games again.

    A formulaic license title. It's a short experience, and for the time that you play it, it's not really much fun, either.
    • 59 Metascore

    The big problem is that, while everything works, it's tedious, dull, and lacking any sort of excitement that the console game is supposed to have.

    The gameplay mechanics are very simple, and are designed for very young players. With that said, children who like Winnie the Pooh will probably like this game, if only for the characters.

    A mediocre powerup-driven racing game that has one mode of play disguised as three. The "Story" Mode, probably the least painful of the three, can be finished in under an hour of solid play.

    A game with really low production - you can see that this one hasn't had much time spent on it, and I couldn't really recommend it to anyone - even fans of the show. Go for the much more fun "Lizzie McGuire 2: Lizzie Diaries" if you want to play a Lizzie game. It's still short, but it's much more entertaining.

    Lack of subtlety is FIFA Street's serious illness – and it drastically shortens the game's life. When you then begin to get tired of constantly seeing the same animations – which are supposed to be the most accomplished aspect of the game – there is little left to hold your interest.

    If you have Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly, trade it in for a PS1 Spyro game and hope for the best. But please, do not play this game all the way through. Innocent minds will be lost.

    The gameplay in Disney’s PK: Out of the Shadows is nowhere near as good as its graphics. The main problem lies in the fact that it is extremely repetitive.

    Another gripe is the 3D playfield. It's almost impossible to see the balls behind the balls that are in the front.

    Speaking of ill-thought, the controls are maddeningly unresponsive. If it were not for the glitch deaths, all of the frustration would come from repeating the level over and over due to deaths from buggy control response.

    With its plodding gameplay and bizarre design flaws, Disney’s Hide & Sneak is more of a chore to play than an entertaining game. Kids are probably going to look at this game and ask the obvious: "Why doesn’t Mickey just jump over the enemies, or throw some stars or something?"

    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.

    This is a hardest type of game to review, where its substandard qualities are hidden inside the most mediocre and unremarkable package.
