    Damnation is an unfinished title with a concept and scale to rival some of the best shooters on the market. Sadly, the poor execution makes you wonder how great this title could have been.

    Boring, repetitive gameplay, uninspired level design and pathetic voice-overs are just part of the reason why Iron Man is destined to become a video store rental rather than a full price purchase.

    While older players will find some brainless fun in The Incredible Hulk, the simple gameplay would more likely to suited to a younger audience.

    Unless you are a hardcore Warriors fanatic, Warriors Orochi 2 offers nothing more than button mashing monotony at its finest.

    StormRise is a project that has a great concept behind it, but fails to execute it with grace.

    Slow, mindless and dreary gameplay deals another blow to Sonic's struggle to survive in the 21st century.

    It's a soccer trivia game, no more and no less. It's aimed at hardcore soccer fans, but we're pretty sure hardcore soccer fans would rather be playing the likes of FIFA.

    A somewhat interesting action/RPG title underneath all the terrible flaws.

    An addition to the long line of adventure video games that will leave players feeling cold where gameplay is concerned. Suda 51 fans should play it for the story and the music, nothing more.

    Shaun White Skateboarding isn't worthy of your time, your patience or most importantly - your money.

    The atmospheric presentation of Microbot is top-notch for a downloadable title. But for a game that promises to be an action shooter, the severe lack of action throughout a significant portion of the title makes this one game that should be left to flat line on the operating table.

    Under-use of the Marvel license, focus on style over substance and a rushed developer have ensured that Marvel Nemesis will be the turkey of the EA holiday lineup.

    If you play Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime, you will be haunted with a dull presentation combined with ordinary gameplay with no differentiation whatsoever.

    Unforgivable mistakes leave Brink sitting alone in the corner crying, thinking about where it all went wrong.

    While it is clear most of the time what the developers were trying to achieve, The First Templar is a bland, repetitive game that lacks the level of polish that most games nowadays have to be considered average.

    The slow, frustrating and difficult ride that is Ape Escape is another in a long line of failures of titles trying to moot the need for PlayStation Move.
    • 51 Metascore

    An interesting, plague-filled Middle Ages premise and decent combat are let down by some poor presentation and seriously questionable AI issues.

    In the end, Law & Order: Legacies just feels like you're watching a slightly interactive episode of the TV show.
    • 64 Metascore

    Cold War seems to lack the two main components that are crucial to a stealth/espionage game - a solid narrative and a competent stealth system. Combine that with a short overall length, and you've got no real reason to play it.

    It's a missed opportunity weighed down by cumbersome and lacklustre design. The multiplayer provides some fun, but with Mario Kart on it's way, it's worth neither the hassle or expense.

    Sprung is a missed opportunity. Who knew dating could be so boring?

    If you’ve played "Ford Racing 2" then you have essentially played Ford Racing 3. The games are practically the same except with a few new cars and some different modes. This is extremely disappointing and the game should be so much better. There is nothing in Ford Racing 3 that we haven’t seen elsewhere done much better.

    One of the worst Nintendo licensed products released in the last few years. We question how this got the Nintendo gold seal.

    According to Sony, stripping a game of it's most distinguished component is a sure way to achieve success.

    A game that had a lot of potential in its concept, but a few solid ideas can't make up for poor gameplay.

    Beat Down makes us feel bad - we wanted it to be good, Cavia put in the ideas that could have made the game good, but failed to deliver on the execution - the despicable quality of voice acting just seals the deal.

    A real slap across the face to Matrix fans. Do yourselves a favour and take the blue pill.

    Shadow the Hedgehog could signal the death of Sonic spin offs, the title tries too hard to be impressive and ultimately fails miserably.

    Dynasty Warriors 5: Xtreme Legends shows just how little milk Koei has left in the proverbial cow.

    A quick and dirty port of a current generation game is a nasty move on behalf of Activision, especially when the Xbox 360 offers much more compelling software for a similar price.
