    Wipeout: The Game is a great game for young audiences, though for more seasoned gamers, it will most likely not fill their hunger. The game takes only a couple of hours to complete, and its difficulty level is appropriate for young children.

    A true Rogue derivative, Izuna’s difficulty and depth will likely only be appreciated by fans of the genre.

    Unless you’re starved for “tactical” action, there is little reason to buy Conflict: Desert Storm 2. While it is an improvement over the first one, the two games are largely identical and suffer from the same identity problem.

    While I had a good experience with Rhythm Thief, it is not a fantastic game. With the lavish presentation, the intriguing story, and the assortment of collectibles, it is so disheartening to see gameplay that ranges from "kind of okay" to "pretty broken." And though I recommend that everyone experiences Rhythm Thief & the Emperor's Treasure, the whole package is disappointing and not worth rushing out to get.

    The problem is that they haven’t invested nearly as much time in the game that exists underneath the control scheme. The AI, the playbooks, and the presentation are still inexorably rooted in the PS2 design that might have been compelling four years ago but which is now really starting to show its age.

    Underfeatured for the price. It's not bad, but it's just not worth thirty bucks.

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

    It isn't an amazing adaptation, but Avalanche Software made it all work, creating a video game that fans of the movie and the Cars franchise as a whole can enjoy. What the title manages to achieve is enough to forgive some of its shortcomings.

    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.

    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.

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

    While it’s a great first step toward compelling use of the GamePad in a strategy title, the mechanics never really develop enough to fully realize it.

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

    And ultimately, that's my biggest problem with this game: Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two is just so unmemorable compared to the original. The new stuff is either bland or doesn't work, and the level design is a little worse than in Epic Mickey. It is not a bad game, and is technically solid in most respects, but what could have been an incredible bookend to the Wii library is now a beacon of missed potential.

    While Worms: Open Warfare maintains the humor and addictive gameplay of the series, it really is only worthwhile for multiplayer on the road.

    It's not a perfect game, and one that will do itself favors by staying at a budget price, but it's easy to recommend to die-hard Frogger fans, or anyone else looking for a quick fix of fun on their 3DS.

    The gameplay can be repetitive at times, but when you have a few friends around, that is when the game really starts to shine.

    Despite some good aspects, I can't recommend Mazes of Fate unless you're willing to tolerate a half-decent game for 20 hours.

    It's just one of those games that really is best played in its original, simple Marathon mode.

    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.

    Snow Moto Racing 3D is an alright game that provides a small racing fix for anyone desperately in need of one.

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

    There are some issues with using the touch screen for in-game tricks and acceleration, but aside from that, it's a fairly average kart-like racing game.

    If you found the previous game enjoyable, and want more, this game is up your alley, but be prepared for the challenge. If you haven't played DodoGo!, you'll find that the learning curve for this game is extremely steep. Play at your own risk.

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

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

    It is only the production values: graphics, music, and pedigree that make this game stand out. At its heart, Final Fantasy III is a dated and mediocre RPG that will only please the most die-hard Final Fantasy fans. [JPN Import]

    This is a game for a very specific set of people, and I am not included that set. Nonetheless, I had a good time with the game once more people got involved. If you have a group of friends that like to bust a groove, Just Dance 4 may be the party game for you. If you're more interested in leveling up a black mage than a dancer, then avoidance is your smoothest move.

    3D Game Collection didn't do much to impress me, nor did I find myself wanting to play it more often. It did provide an interesting distraction for short bursts of time. The game's variety of content makes it hard to feel ripped off, but don't expect a steal.

    The main problem with the level design, and you've heard me say this about many other games, is that the strictly linear missions want you to complete specific objectives without usually telling you what those objectives are.
