    Astro Boy is a movie-license miss with awful graphics, bad combat, and middling controls. Even if you loved the heralded Game Boy Advance Astro Boy game, this game still isn't worth your time because it takes those concepts and perverts them into something not fun at all.

    The game is short, but made to feel long and tedious through repetition. Not recommended.

    In the end, Spectral Force Genesis ends up being a rather disappointing title on all fronts.

    This game is worth ten bucks at the most. If you pay any more than that, you're doing a disservice to developers striving to provide above-average experiences to gamers.

    Quite likely the worst Spider-Man game Activision has published, falling short of even the lackluster Spider-Man 3 and Friend or Foe games. It's boring, repetitive, and indistinct.

    Spider-Man: Friend or Foe's levels can be played cooperatively in multi-card mode, but with such boring gameplay I cannot recommend one, let alone two, purchases.

    A key flaw in the multiplayer mode is the default difficulty settings for computer-controlled opponents.

    101-in-1 Explosive Megamix is the definitive bad budget title. Some of the mini-games are remotely fun, but others feel like a chore. With so many poor and forgettable games on the compilation, it's hard to recommend this one.

    Psyscrolr is a poorly-designed game that you should not play.

    Boogie should be a lesson learned for EA's Casual Entertainment division. Simplifying the controls of a game for new players is a good idea, but the gameplay shouldn't be simplified with them.

    An insult to gamers and anime fans alike. With its charismatic cast and open-ended, special-agent plot device, Yu Yu Hakusho is a prime franchise for videogames, but judging from this rush job, the developer and publisher don’t seem to recognize this.

    To conclude, Power Rangers Samurai is a very basic and frustratingly dull release that hardly tries to bring the exciting world of the series to video game form. Everything feels like it was taken from the book of basics in game design and will do nothing to convince you to spend more time with the multicolor heroes and their crazy enemies.

    As it stands, the only thing this game was running was out of ideas.

    The few elements of polish, an important part of real-world theme parks, seem like token efforts. The only authentic experience here is the sensation of being nickel-and-dimed at every stand, kiosk, and game you encounter.

    Due to the shoddy, strategically lacking gameplay and the absurd, nonsensical plot and concept, Beyblade on DS should be ignored by everyone except for die-hard fans, if they even exist.
    • 47 Metascore

    You'd be better off ignoring G.I. Joe on the DS entirely and just seeing the movie instead, which I understand is awesome. The game, obviously, does not follow suit.

    With all its problems, SPRay is a pretty terrible game. The basics of the gameplay are promising, but it never becomes anything of substance. While the camera control is far and away the game's worst problem, it also suffers from lackluster puzzles, bland combat, and an awful overworld.

    All in all, the only thing Animal Paradise has going for it is that it contains amusing animals and various cute Hanadeka photos. It misses the boat on potentially being a fun Pokemon Snap clone, and instead settles for being a vastly inferior Nintendogs clone.

    Indeed, the absence of physical dice rolling and being gathered around a game board with friends rather diminishes the fun to be had here.

    Remote Racers fails at the most basic task for any racing game, and is therefore impossible to recommend.

    My initial expectation was that it would be similar to Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment for the PlayStation Vita – a mediocre-to-decent game based on an anime franchise that sells a boatload at $40 and is only available digitally. What I got is something that you should have no business playing, and I look forward to reclaiming over 12,000 blocks of 3DS memory very soon.

    A shameless cash-in and should be avoided.

    It all becomes boring way too soon before you made any sort of actual progress and that is the crime this game committed.

    Happy Birthday Mart is not concerned with entertaining the player. On the surface, it looks like a potentially enjoyable children's game, but it will only frustrate kids with its slow pace and ambiguous structure.

    Spore Heroes Arena is a very uninspiring title that has a repetitive fighting engine and tedious exploration. It definitely does not live up to the Spore brand.

    rhaps if the game's difficulty and level design were improved, it could have served as a nice diversion for fans of the TV series. But as it, it's just another lackluster licensed game to add to the list.

    A terrible game. It's in 3D, and the Burnout tracks are scaled down well, but nothing else about the game is worth sitting through. It's slow, boring, and poorly put together, three things that the Burnout series is definitely not known for.

    A short-lived side-scrolling beat-'em-up with poor presentation, miserable controls, repetitive combat, and a confusing story.

    Line Rider 2’s graphics are unimpressive to say the least; I've seen better-looking Flash games. Some of the musical tracks are catchy, but it's not enough to save the experience. Just bear in mind that the internet game is free, folks.

    The bottom line is that while the game is presented quite well, the mediocre experience is bogged down by unnecessary restrictions that do nothing to save it from a glancing waste of time at best. Your money would be better spent buying a puzzle book or newspaper, or looking up any of the hundreds of free browser based spot-the-difference puzzles online.
