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

    A repetitive, bland game that also happens to be the worst use of a license I've ever seen.

    If the control issues don't stop you, the tired and overdone level design will.

    More diversity in game modes or a semblance of challenge would have made this game feel like something more than just going through the motions.

    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.

    It lacks depth, meaning that you’ll grow tired of it within minutes – even with a friend.

    Just too simple for its own good, proving that a fancy presentation isn’t necessarily sufficient to overcome an inherent lack of depth.

    The only group I can recommend this game to would be extreme fans of the movie, and judging from the movie's reviews, there won’t be too many of those.

    Indianapolis 500 is still fun, but only if you can overlook the very limited scope of the game.

    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.

    This is a poor return for the Tony Hawk franchise, and the only bright side to this game is that they might make a better version in the future.

    With Junior Classic Games, you are merely presented with icons that don't even describe what the game might be. How is anyone supposed to understand that the "count the dots" game is the giraffe icon? Its presentation flaws like this that make Junior Classic Games fall far short in a crowded genre.

    With dodgy controls and horrendous graphics, it's an experience that only the bravest baseball fans should attempt to endure.

    Ultimately, Calling falls flat. Its redeeming qualities, such as the interesting story and atmosphere, are neutered by its meandering gameplay.

    The unreliability of the button detection and the repetitive shaking of the Wii Remote will have most players fed up sooner rather than later.

    Arcade Sports had a lot of potential, but the frustrating control schemes result in a disappointing experience. Considering that all of the game's sports have been done better elsewhere, it is pretty hard to justify a purchase.

    While you will have to endure the game's horrible gameplay in order to gain access to this content, those who stick to the game will ultimately be rewarded with a rather satisfying game.

    Soccer Bashi feels like a glorified flash game. It's the same game that people have been playing on their phones for years now.

    Atrocious for a couple of reasons. Raven can only jump half of her height, but this is probably a license-forced limitation, and it's clear that the game hasn't been tested solidly, as there are sound distortion glitches, as well as one unfortunate bug where the screen turned black but the sound kept playing.

    Your daughter might be sufficiently occupied by it if she's too lost in her own fantasies of making out with Drake to realize that the game has nothing to do with the show.

    The game’s presentation is nothing less than excellent, and its graphics and sound are great too. On the other hand, the control and camera are awful, and the gameplay often fails to deliver on its lofty intentions.

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

    Bust-A-Move Universe is a great puzzle game, but unless you're a big fan of the series or a die-hard puzzle fanatic, this is a senseless purchase. You can find similar games online for free or, inevitably, for much cheaper on the 3DS download platforms (when they launch).

    While the game controls moderately well and features the occasional moment of fun, the lackluster and repetitive campaign along with a weak physics engine and graphics, do a great job of making the overall experience a poor one.

    Overall, the game's all right. Nothing makes it stand out against Thor or Green Lantern or Transformers or any other of the hundred movie games that came out this year. The game's not bad, it's just not very good.

    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.

    Brave is an average movie tie-in game, and nothing more.

    Johnny Kung Fu's biggest crimes are likely frustrating difficulty and poor pacing.

    Ben 10: Omniverse has the elements of a great game. The problem lies in how it balances these aspects. The repetitive and numerous combat sequences left me bored and uninterested, while the puzzles leveraging the large cast of aliens were not that prevalent. Fans of the series may still find something due to the source material, but the common consumer should probably steer clear.
