    Though an amicable attempt, Monster Lab is plagued by a number of issues. Monster creation falls flat, not feeling truly creative or interesting. Mini-games are excessive and as one would expect, entirely Wii Remote feature-based. Battling is unfulfilling as well because getting into a fight does nothing but net creation parts that are neither unique nor hard to come by.

    However, the constant whining from Emil, a party that never feels like it has a foundation, and poor pacing and flow make waiting for the good stuff an exercise in patience, where it should be an exercise in fun.

    The game comes with four cards, but at no point did the two-hour tutorial tell me how to upload the card data. Honestly, that’s one more fetch-quest I could do without anyway.

    A missed opportunity. Its gameplay is quite solid and forces the player to use tact and thought to complete all of the dungeons in the game; however, the randomly-generated dungeons really detract from its otherwise engaging gameplay.

    Sam & Max: Season One is a strikingly niche title very much in love with its PC predecessors from LucasArts and Sierra.

    I’m not a fan of the presentation or the ridiculous grinding required for success.

    The charming story and genuine humor are far overshadowed by the shallow gameplay.

    When it comes down to it, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is just a pretty looking sandbox game with three mini-games. These games are interesting, but gameplay variety is a second thought, and so is the story.

    The online mode works great but adds nothing to the experience, and the demo-sharing feature is a wonderful idea crushed by Nintendo's online architecture.

    Only fellow Pokémon fanatics will get a similar level of enjoyment.

    On the whole, Doodle Hex is a fundamentally solid game that sadly fails to capitalise on its strengths in a number of crucial ways.
    • 56 Metascore

    The game's sound is also underwhelming.

    Despite the appealing online component, I can’t recommend Path of the Ninja 2 to anyone mildly interested in Naruto or portable RPG’s, as there are better examples of both on the DS.

    This is an “I Spy” game. If you like such things, you might like this, and if not, you can safely ignore it.
    • 67 Metascore

    The lack of identity and direction is unfulfilling, and while a select group of mini-games are entertaining and original, many of them feel generic and bland. But in the end, it's the lack of simultaneous multiplayer that makes the game nearly pointless.

    Something like Metroid Prime 3 offers a better single-player experience (with far better visual appeal), and there are better online Wii games. Quantum of Solace is ultimately a passable shooter that, as a package, has been done better elsewhere.

    The many changes made to the original formula in order to use the Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition engine totally transforms the game into something new. Limited controls and technology, as well as the sandbox-less gameplay, have made the title into an average, linear zombie-killing experience.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The storyline, art direction, and world exploration are top-notch here, but the tiresome combat sucks the life out of an otherwise enjoyable adventure.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Unsolved Crimes is not a terrible title, but it always feels lacking in some way across each aspect of the game.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Avalon Code has high production values and heart, but element-swapping really saps the fun out of the experience. There are better RPGs out there.
    • 63 Metascore

    The difficulty gets brutal, but the game is relatively forgiving. If you're interested in a short, fun puzzle game for DS, you could do much better, but you could also do worse.

    Exit DS has some likeable aspects, but the tedious control scheme keeps it from greatness.

    In the end, We Ski & Snowboard reminds me how much more awesome real skiing is. It's fun at first, but with a lack of challenge, mediocre graphics, and no real sense of speed, it gets old quickly.

    Cubello is definitely shallower and less sublime than Orbient, with at least one glaring design flaw and unfortunate sound design. Nevertheless, it can still be a fun diversion, and it does manage to present a unique sort of puzzle gameplay.
    • 62 Metascore

    While most adults may have a hard time finding enjoyment, the game's character and goofy nature makes for a great experience for the younger demographic.
    • 57 Metascore

    Kung-Fu Panda: Legendary Warriors is one you should leave on the shelf. Even the little ones will appreciate Brawl more than this, both as a single-player game and a party game.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Overall, Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia is a solidly produced title, but given its close resemblance to its predecessor and the lack of more substantial or dynamic gameplay and narrative elements, its appeal will be limited mostly to those Pokémon enthusiasts eager to see the creatures from Diamond and Pearl represented elsewhere.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Tokyo Beat Down isn't a great game. It isn't really even that good of a game. But fans of similar games will appreciate what the Beast Cops have to offer, and even gamers lukewarm on brawlers will find some merit in Tokyo Beat Down alongside its painfully unfair and tedious moments.

    The biggest problem with Monsters vs. Aliens is its unbelievably short length.
    • 53 Metascore

    Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen would have been better if there was more focus on its vehicular sequences. As it stands, it is a mediocre beat‘em-up that you can safely pass by.
