    The game would’ve been better as a stand-alone Bejeweled cart, with traditional game types like Endless, Time Attack, Vs., etc. As it stands, Galactrix adds way too much unnecessary clutter to the core puzzle game. I know that’s kind of the point, but it just comes off as being unnecessary.

    Super Swing Golf is obnoxious, gimmicky, featureless, and, despite its best attempts otherwise, humorless.

    There are probably free Flash games on the Internet that approximate these games. It's best to save your Nintendo Points and wait for something worthwhile.

    Speaking of ill-thought, the controls are maddeningly unresponsive. If it were not for the glitch deaths, all of the frustration would come from repeating the level over and over due to deaths from buggy control response.

    Flawed on such a basic gameplay level that I cannot in good conscience recommend it to anybody. I plead with you not to play this game.

    Delivers nothing but tedious micromanagement.

    Unworthy of its namesake, and I really wish the developer had taken its time to study what was great about the original game before starting work on the sequel – the lack of finesse present in CTR really shows.

    A game full of duality. The Hedgehog levels are a lot of fun, and the controls accentuate that. On the flip-side, the Werehog levels are riddled with frustratingly boring combat and gameplay. It never helps that the game can't let go of its ridiculously dumb story.

    The game is only a couple hours long and any semblance of unlocks (an image gallery) are an insult. Nobody wants to look at a gallery of movie screencaps on a GBA screen.

    If you want to play Tekken against your friends locally on the go, then Tekken 3D Prime Edition is perfect for you. For anyone wanting a decent single-player experience or a consistent online experience, you're better off looking into one of the other fighting games on the system, as Tekken 3D Prime Edition fails both in a single-player experience and online.

    It's bland, boring, and frustrating--and once that kicks in, the only thing that will keep anyone playing is sheer tenacity.

    No matter how much you love Star Trek, no one can escape the curse of off-screen objects.

    A workable frame rate might have salvaged this uninteresting, watered-down 3DS version of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. Instead, the game's single redeeming quality is marred by technical and gameplay problems, leaving it a shallow, unworkable execution of a good idea.

    Ratatouille is not really much different in gameplay than most other movie-licensed games; in fact, it may be a bit better since it mooches off an obscure and great source material, Chibi-Robo.

    Hmm. If you need to distract a rich kid for thirty seconds while you rummage through his backpack for money. If you're a nurse caring for an incontinent who is captivated by the color yellow. Maybe if you're stalking somebody on the development team. In those instances, perhaps a rental is justified. Otherwise, steer clear.

    Kersploosh! has some opportunities for fun, but the game is over before its concept gets a chance to shine.

    The fact of the matter is that unless you are absolutely dying to play an insanely quirky Japanese game about cooking, you should stay far, far away from Cooking Mama.

    While the background tunes are enjoyable and obscure, they don’t match similar title like Lumines(which seems to have been an influence). If you want to experience old-school gaming with a new-school twist, Space Invaders Extreme is EXACTLY how you do it.

    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.

    To sum up Spyro Orange in one sentence: I'd rather slam my fingers in my desk drawer than play those mini-games again.

    This is a hardest type of game to review, where its substandard qualities are hidden inside the most mediocre and unremarkable package.

    James, I think I speak for us both when I say that Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time/Explorers of Darkness will only appeal to Pokemaniacs who enjoy incredibly repetitive gameplay, practically GBA-level graphics and sound, and computer partner A.I. that's so dumb you'll want to stab yourself in the eye.

    I suppose my question is this: why buy How to Train Your Dragon when you can buy Pokemon games on the DS instead?

    A decent amount of fun, but it is way too short and requires little thought or skill. Certainly not a title you should spend thirty bucks on.

    Lack of subtlety is FIFA Street's serious illness – and it drastically shortens the game's life. When you then begin to get tired of constantly seeing the same animations – which are supposed to be the most accomplished aspect of the game – there is little left to hold your interest.

    The big problem is that, while everything works, it's tedious, dull, and lacking any sort of excitement that the console game is supposed to have.

    Only two, possibly three, of these games are fun, and even then only for very short bursts.

    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.

    Almost every aspect of Spider-Man: Friend or Foe falls flat on its face. As a fan of the sandbox style Spider-Man games, I must say I am deeply disappointed that Activision chose to go the easy route instead of giving fans another high quality game. Avoid this game at all costs; it's not even worth a rental.
