    Emergency Heroes feels very rushed since there's just not much to it. The entire game took me approximately four hours from start to finish, and that’s four hours too many for something as generic and repetitive as this.

    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.

    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.

    The flat multiplayer mode cements Pirates: Duels on the High Seas as a mostly respectable technical effort that simply lacks the requisite dynamism and ingenuity to satisfy as a game based entirely on action.

    Crash: Mind Over Mutant is a competent platformer. While it leaves much to be desired in terms of depth and level design, fans of the titular Bandicoot or starved DS platform lovers may enjoy it. Others should pass this one by.

    With gameplay as shoddy and boring as this, we’d likely quit before the round ended. Bypass Major League Eating: The Game, and save your money for a better meal.

    There’s no reason to spend your pennies on CORE when several other, far superior, DS first-person shooters are sitting right next to it, like Call of Duty 4 and Moon.

    Flower, Sun, and Rain is largely unenjoyable.

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

    The game is partially broken, uninspired, and most important of all, boring.

    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.

    WarioWare: Snapped! is a lot of fun, but it never really goes anywhere: it is just a demo of what the DSi Camera can do.

    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.

    Go Play Circus Star does an admirable job of preserving the fun and excitement of the circus through fun mini-games, and solid Wii Remote and Balance Board controls. However, everything is ruined by the poor decision to force the player to earn the mini-games through forced replay, and an off-putting art style and glitches.

    The majority of Ant Nation is a slow-paced, disturbing affair with little variety. It controls well, but that's about the only good thing about it. Unless you're starved for ant simulation games, this should be left on the virtual shelf.

    Dirt 2 is as vanilla a racer as you're going to find on Wii. There are some unlockable videos and vehicle skins, but this is a very generic package that feels like it was phoned in.

    Hubert the Teddy Bear: Winter Games is not a worthwhile investment. The game feels very rushed and repetitive, and it would’ve been nice to see Teyon spice up the game a little.

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

    Racquet Sports is a great idea, as it takes the great Tennis and Ping Pong parts of the Wii Sports games and gives them the main focus. However, this idea is executed terribly, since the games are malformed versions of their Wii Sports counterparts with a heavy emphasis on mindless gestures, and less emphasis on solid gameplay.

    Were the controls, use of characters, and game variety given a boost in quality, Manic Monkey Mayhem could potentially warrant its 800 Wii Point ($8) price tag. With no such improvements in sight, Manic Monkey Mayhem is a WiiWare game to avoid.

    Cybertron Adventures has way too many problems to be worth your time. The lackluster and unstable gameplay make the whole experience unfufilling.

    No matter how many modes the game claims to have, Deca Sports 3 is too poorly designed to be entertaining, and when your standard motion controls are better than the enhanced MotionPlus controls, something is horribly wrong here.

    This is one title that should be skipped regardless if you are a fan of the franchise or not.

    Overall, Beyblade: Metal Fusion is a big disappointment for me. The extremely ridiculous storyline is just uninspired, and the battles get monotonous. Fans of the franchise may gain something out of it, but everyone else should stay away.

    The combination of the lackluster settings and tedious gameplay makes for a disappointing game. Straight up, Ghost Recon is just a pitiful rail shooter, and with the amount of other good rail shooters on Wii, there is no reason to even think about getting this game.

    "Enemies" in this game have absolutely no AI and merely circle a pre-destined path, and you merely are required to avoid them. That’s it. I suppose this is a good thing because actually controlling Zapper is akin to Sisyphus attempting to roll that boulder up the mountain in Hades.

    A complete waste of time and money. In the two or three hours it takes to beat the game, there isn’t a single moment of true entertainment or thrill.
    • 60 Metascore

    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.
    • 49 Metascore

    Exactly like every other cookie-cutter movie/cartoon-licensed platformer.
    • 58 Metascore

    Just tedious.
