    Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa is filled with a lot of unnecessary elements - like touch screen mini-games - that attempt to extend the life of a short game. It is perfectly suited to children who enjoyed the movies and can overlook the game's more glaring flaws.

    Again is a combination of various things, from crime shows to adventure games, but it seemingly takes the bad parts of all of them.

    Outside of the excellent multiplayer, there is still some fun to be had in Force Unleashed II.

    With the lack of any counterattacks (excluding the Issin command), the game plays something like an RPG set on a SRPG map. There is little strategy involved in clearing a stage, as you can attack with abandon and the areas themselves are far from interesting.

    The game simply has too many design flaws for it to get anywhere near the quality level of its predecessors.

    Fun if you're not sick of doing this over and over and over in the previous games. It's a great presentation, but individual mileage may vary.

    It's the same as the previous games, but battling bosses now requires that you slog through a turn-based map before you can reach them. If this sounds appealing to you, then enjoy!

    Slightly better than your average game that comes with an unintentionally comedic story. It's no shock that MMBN6 isn't trying to win over new fans, and on a system all but dead there isn't much need to innovate. It is what it is and fans of the series who aren't sick of the formula yet will love it.

    A worthy entry to the series. However, the port was clearly pushed out to get a few thousand more copies sold, rather than to improve upon the original game.

    Floaty physics and a sore lack of variety in track design are the standout issues that prevent this game from even garnering a rental recommendation.

    It’s not to say I didn’t have fun playing it. That, I did. However, Ghost Recon just does not stack up to the games of today.

    You'd be much better off saving some of your hard-earned cash for that tattoo you've been wanting, the diamond-stud earring at your local pawn shop, or the superior GameCube title Street Hoops wants so badly to be.

    While it’s not terrible, it approaches a level of bland mediocrity that is all too typical of today’s mass market gaming industry.

    Tedious, buggy, irritating gameplay.

    In all honesty, European Assault is just boring.

    If the characters were anywhere close to balanced, or if it were four-player or had some other awesome redeeming quality, I could recommend Zatch Bell, but the value is just not there.

    Not an awful game; it's merely not well suited in its current form for the handheld.

    Kyotokei wears its influences brazenly, and though it attempts to differentiate itself in a few ways, the best part of the game is still that which it directly borrows from Ikaruga.
    • 58 Metascore

    The game has a balance of both decent and not-so-great content. Spy missions are just not fun, while the racing is only decent.
    • 66 Metascore

    Even the best games in this package are fun no more than five times, and anything below that was lucky to be played more than twice. If there was more content, and Sega put more focus into making more of the games fun rather than making more games, I might have viewed the experience more fondly.

    Dillon's Rolling Western is an interesting take on the tower defense genre, but it's just too scattered and plodding to be that entertaining. The look of the world and the characters are charming, but the gameplay is just dreary and repetitive. While the 3DS had an impressive run of great eShop games, it appears that the well has dried up in this desert-ridden title.

    Baby mode's simple objective, controls, and consequences set it apart from the directionless chaos of the main activity; there's a strategy in deciding just how much you think you can ingest and still evade the growing virus horde. It's not substantially deeper than the normal mode, but it is quite a bit more fun.

    A few fun moments show up every now and then, chiefly courtesy of the bombastic weaponry, but it's just not worth playing the rest of the game to get to those fleeting moments of explosion-ridden car chase excellence.

    Johnny Hotshot misses the mark for the most part. The game is fun, but being forced to play through the same stages over and over again just to make progress is irritating. It's simply poor design.

    As it stands, Chasing Aurora is the weakest of the launch Wii U eShop games, and is only worth checking out if you value style over substance.

    If you want to "get funky" please select a different farm. Funky Barn starts off decent, but a little bit of playing will make you realize that it is a boring game that offers nothing of substance. Unless you are a fan of low quality farming games, I would have to say this is one Wii U title worth skipping

    It's disappointing that while Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why'd you steal our garbage?! does its license justice, the mechanical side of things doesn't translate as well. The game refuses to make a name for itself, instead relying on nostalgia to cover its mistakes.

    Children might not mind the perplexing enemy design as long as the game is blindingly pastel enough, and they might have a higher tolerance for mindless gameplay, but I like my games to be more stimulating.
