    The problems with Evolution are many, but in the end it still tells a cute story featuring charming characters.

    A game that can only hope to succeed by banking on name recognition… if it weren't for the title's roots it would never have even registered on anyone's radar.

    Although the character models and environments are modeled decently, Wario’s console debut suffers from one of Nintendo’s worst GameCube texture jobs to date, barring ports.

    A pretty terrible port of an excellent PC title. The trick to enjoying the GameCube incarnation will be coming to terms with the control and graphic inadequacies.

    There is very little depth, and although the multiplayer mode holds promise as a fun pick-up-and-play diversion at parties, there are better wrestling games, and better fighting games to be had. [Import]

    Chances are that players anticipating a wacky brand of golf are going to be frustrated by the precision-based swinging, while die-hard golf addicts will be put off by the silly elements.

    Its core gameplay is initially attractive and mildly addictive, but the missions and enemies offer little variety or depth. You might enjoy playing with the different suits and upgrades, but unlocking any of the good stuff requires hours and hours of playing through the bland trial missions.

    Tube Slider had a lot of potential and new ideas, but the game is somewhat lacking in execution.

    Due to the lack of a four-player mode and the fact that it is essentially the same game as the GBA version, Puyo Pop Fever isn’t for everyone.

    Only the most fanatical of the Blue Bomber's followers or younger players will be remotely interested in this game.

    It does approach greatness on a few occasions, and the intensity of some of the battles will certainly give you an adrenaline boost that the majority of first-person shooters cannot. However, the great number of irritating flaws and the lack of a multiplayer mode will ultimately hurt your enjoyment of the game.

    The end result is a game as refreshing as it is frustrating. It deserves credit for its originality, but not for its controls and visuals.

    Rampage is an ancient kind of game, unabashedly repetitive and simple, and that makes it a good choice for older gamers who remember pumping quarters into arcade machines other than Dance Dance Revolution.

    It's just another episode of the TV show.

    Sonic Riders tries to do something new with racing but in the end doesn't deliver a polished package.

    While definitely not the sort of game that makes you spaz when you hear about it, Over the Hedge does deliver on the goal of all movie games. That is, to not be a complete pile of garbage.
    • 66 Metascore

    A reasonably well-made game that desperately needs a soul.

    Thor DS, from what I've heard, might be the best Thor game, but it's not much more than a slightly-better-than-mediocre brawler with great art. WayForward junkies and big Thor fans should be the only people that look into getting this game, though it should satiate those folks quite well.

    Thor's not a bad game, it just doesn't seem to care whether or not it does well.

    Though the game lacks depth, it is, however, a good introduction to the controller and a decent party game for kids. For those who already have their fair share of Wii Remotes, Wii Play: Motion isn't worth paying for.

    Far from being extreme, this Deca Sports title is best ignored. I think Hudson would do well to start making games with fewer sports in each title so they can focus a little.

    A frustrating game that I can't recommend. It's a shame, too, since I like the Gryptonite games and, based on Dark Void Zero, I had a lot of hope for Other Ocean's take on the formula. The game looks okay and there's voicework in the narration, but the game itself is pretty weak. There are good ideas here, but they're just not well implemented.

    This DS game is pretty good, but doesn't really hit as hard as it could have. With average graphics and music accompanied with the average gameplay, nothing about the game really stands out... except for Wolverine. He's a cool guy.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3: Defiance isn't going to win any awards, but as a DS port of a popular franchise, it does a decent job making the experience portable.

    I Heart Geeks is a puzzle game that provides short-lived fun. My initial reaction to the play style was favorable, but my high opinion of the game slowly dwindled as its problems began to take shape.

    Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 is a better version of last year's game. It fixes some of the flaws in the previous version, and adds new modes on top of it. This is what you should expect from an annualized sports game, and while it introduces some problems of its own, it offers a solid soccer experience for the 3DS.

    If anything is wrong with Battleship, it is that there is nothing remarkable about it. The game is fun and challenging, but bogged down by the very movie that inspired it. It might have also benefited from some sort of multiplayer option, but as it stands, you could buy far worse on the Wii.

    As a Creatures, Inc. developed application, everything is highly polished and works as it's supposed to. It's not especially fun (though my face-off with each legendary critter was a heart-pounding experience), and the clear purpose of the application is to obtain Pokémon and items to transfer to the upcoming sequels. If you plan to own either Black 2 or White 2, this is a necessity, as it will give you a leg up in the game (as well as some exclusive Pokémon). If you don't plan on getting either game, don't mistake this title for a neat eShop diversion. There is nothing here for you.
