    All in all, the only thing Animal Paradise has going for it is that it contains amusing animals and various cute Hanadeka photos. It misses the boat on potentially being a fun Pokemon Snap clone, and instead settles for being a vastly inferior Nintendogs clone.

    Indeed, the absence of physical dice rolling and being gathered around a game board with friends rather diminishes the fun to be had here.

    The few elements of polish, an important part of real-world theme parks, seem like token efforts. The only authentic experience here is the sensation of being nickel-and-dimed at every stand, kiosk, and game you encounter.

    Line Rider 2’s graphics are unimpressive to say the least; I've seen better-looking Flash games. Some of the musical tracks are catchy, but it's not enough to save the experience. Just bear in mind that the internet game is free, folks.

    With all its problems, SPRay is a pretty terrible game. The basics of the gameplay are promising, but it never becomes anything of substance. While the camera control is far and away the game's worst problem, it also suffers from lackluster puzzles, bland combat, and an awful overworld.

    A shameless cash-in and should be avoided.

    With such a poor graphical presentation, and little-to-no replay value for an already extremely short quest, Mortimer Beckett and the Secrets of Spooky Manor is incredibly disappointing and should be avoided.

    101-in-1 Explosive Megamix is the definitive bad budget title. Some of the mini-games are remotely fun, but others feel like a chore. With so many poor and forgettable games on the compilation, it's hard to recommend this one.

    Spore Heroes Arena is a very uninspiring title that has a repetitive fighting engine and tedious exploration. It definitely does not live up to the Spore brand.

    You'd be better off ignoring G.I. Joe on the DS entirely and just seeing the movie instead, which I understand is awesome. The game, obviously, does not follow suit.

    Do yourself a favor and hunt down the GBA game if you have an Astro Boy craving. Just ignore this pile, which is 100 percent pure, uncut shovelware.

    Overall, the Wii has much better multiplayer based mini-game collection titles, and you can find better gambling simulators online. Vegas Party fails at both, with gameplay that lacks coherence and proper explanations combined with simplified versions of the games that don't allow the player to play them with real rules.

    Due to the shoddy, strategically lacking gameplay and the absurd, nonsensical plot and concept, Beyblade on DS should be ignored by everyone except for die-hard fans, if they even exist.

    A short-lived side-scrolling beat-'em-up with poor presentation, miserable controls, repetitive combat, and a confusing story.

    Ultimately, Dragon Blade Chronicles is a wasted opportunity.

    An insult to gamers and anime fans alike. With its charismatic cast and open-ended, special-agent plot device, Yu Yu Hakusho is a prime franchise for videogames, but judging from this rush job, the developer and publisher don’t seem to recognize this.

    Though it controls fine and seems to offer something substantial at first, I couldn't recommend it for adults or children.

    Feels like another "phone-it-in" anime game. The mini-games are boring, the Captain events feel tired and generic, and there's no replay value to be found.

    Super Monkey Ball 3D is a mess. Sega appears to have forgotten how to make a good Monkey Ball game. The puzzle levels are uninteresting, and the two multiplayer modes are extremely poor rip-offs of Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros. I can't recommend this game for anyone.

    Hobbled by poor design and beset with technical issues. The game's selling point is the chance to fly planes, and far too often you don't. Is it so much to ask that a flight game focus on giving you full control of an aircraft?

    The biggest problem with this is the controls.

    rhaps if the game's difficulty and level design were improved, it could have served as a nice diversion for fans of the TV series. But as it, it's just another lackluster licensed game to add to the list.

    To conclude, Power Rangers Samurai is a very basic and frustratingly dull release that hardly tries to bring the exciting world of the series to video game form. Everything feels like it was taken from the book of basics in game design and will do nothing to convince you to spend more time with the multicolor heroes and their crazy enemies.

    It's a bad game-that's the bottom line-and you shouldn't spend a dime on it.

    I had initially hoped ThunderCats was going to be one of my last great outings on the DS. Instead I got a game which was far more aggravating than enjoyable. The semi-enjoyable strategy elements needed for boss battles could not make up for the unpolished gameplay and confusing plot. Even though ThunderCats seems to have been a long time coming, the final project wasn't quite worth it.

    Clash of Elementalists may look like an interesting title, but its high difficulty and learning curve make its relatively meager offerings even less appealing. This is not a game worth spending hours becoming proficient at.

    The best that can be said for the game is at least it’s not a direct port of the GBA game. However, it would definitely be a better game if it had been.

    An ill-conceived variation on a popular formula.

    If you want a good point‘n’click adventure, play Myst or Shivers.

    Build-A-Bear is a fantastic idea, but that idea best left in the real world. This virtual version of it is a wasted effort.
