    Far too repetitive to hold interest, and even fans of the hack-and-slash genre will be bored by the lack of originality.

    Even a modest step forward, such as adding more frames of animation to the character portraits, would have made the game feel fresher and more vibrant. As it is, Under the Knife 2 comes across as a cynical cash-in, a mission pack so lazy that it doesn't even have new missions.

    A solid puzzler that might garner some fans thanks to its compelling gameplay concepts and interesting character designs. Unfortunately, its sometimes overcomplicated gameplay causes it to fall short of greatness.

    For every interesting mission, there is an equally lackluster one. The platforming is satisfying, but the sword combat is awful. This is a game of checks and balances, and in the end, it's just another mediocre Sonic game.

    My Pet Shop is surprisingly well-polished for a game aimed at a younger, casual audience.

    Shorts is by no means a bad game, but it suffers from some common technical problems that easily drag the game down.

    In a way, Just Dance is just like an up- and-coming dancer. It's very rough but shows promise, especially when played with friends.

    The Secret Saturdays: Beasts of the 5th Sun is a light-hearted side-scrolling game with some entertaining gameplay. There's not much for those unfamiliar with the series to care about, but it is a fantastic game for any video game fan that also enjoys The Secret Saturdays.

    While it is far from the best match-three game on the market, this game definitely is enjoyable, and holds up for the few hours it takes to play through the story.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    The gameplay can be repetitive at times, but when you have a few friends around, that is when the game really starts to shine.
    • 73 Metascore

    Overall, the game is very short. It's feasible to finish the game with close to 100 percent on your first playthrough in five hours or less.

    Epic Mickey is a game that falls short in the part that counts: the gameplay.
    • 56 Metascore

    The unlockables, missions, and wide variety of characters save the game from being terrible, luckily.
    • 74 Metascore

    Despite its bells and whistles, Black Ops just can't escape the fact that the core gameplay just isn't fun.

    The good news is that I had an enjoyable time playing the game even without being very familiar with Naruto, so it stands to reason that real fans will like it even more.

    It's bad when great games from yesterday lose their steam. It's worse when that very same game's mechanics are implemented in an all-new title.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    This game ambitiously combines several gameplay ideas but never figures out how to balance them against each other for a refined experience. If you're the kind of gamer who can be taken in by artful storytelling even in the absence of polished gameplay, give it a shot.

    While Chronicles of Narnia has solid graphics and sound, a lengthy adventure, and an excellent story, its repetitive "fetch-and-retrieve" gameplay wears thin over the course of seventeen levels.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Atomic Betty is quite short, clocking in at just under two hours, with absolutely no replay value. It features a password save, which is quite simply inexcusable.

    The potion problems bring down the rest of the game's brighter spots.

    Despite some good aspects, I can't recommend Mazes of Fate unless you're willing to tolerate a half-decent game for 20 hours.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Offers quite a bit for a fighting game, but unfortunately where the game falls flat is in the basic fundamentals of what makes any game good, fighter or not.

    Amusing and well worth it if you love SpongeBob SquarePants and enjoy a run-around-collecting-items type of game.

    The gameplay has serious setbacks, but possibly the worst part of Sonic Adventure DX is its cut-scenes. Featuring an atrocious English translation and mind-numbingly horrible voice acting, Sonic Adventure will, at best, leave many players embarrassed for Sega, and at worst, leave them disgusted with the game.

    A fine installment to the series. However, it remains a very basic platformer whose ideas lack originality and, in many ways, feel a little out of date.

    How on earth doesn’t this game have a simple auto-save feature?
    • 66 Metascore

    A pretty generic kart racer that is enjoyable, but flawed where it counts: the racing. It's a little too easy to win races, and once you beat it all, there's very little for you to keep coming back to.

    Sonic Heroes’ biggest weaknesses are its combat system and related controls. While the three-formation system provides a refreshing choice in combat styles when facing a handful of opponents, the system quickly becomes disorienting in larger battles.

    Unfortunately, one of the biggest flaws within PSO III becomes quite apparent once a battle begins. Everything takes an inordinately long amount of time.

    If you just got your GameCube at the reduced price and demand Mario Party action, please buy this game instead of "Mario Party 4." Otherwise, stick with the Party you’ve got.
