    A once respectable franchise has been irreversibly tarnished by this steaming turd known as Call of Juarez: The Cartel.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    A below average game that feels like it has been developed to turn a quick buck.

    Saying that the DS version of Burnout Legends is bad is quite generous. Abomination is a much more fitting word.

    If it isn't clear by now Monster Trucks DS is a terrible title that feels like nothing but a cash in.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    An abysmal, close to unplayable mess.

    Ping Pals is like paying for a trial sample of chips, you get the same thing, but you paid for it.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    An outright travesty.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    An insult to anyone who enjoyed the original arcade game.

    When you take the physical activity and cheap, tacky prizes out of Whac-A-Mole, you're left with virtually nothing.

    They didn’t really try and they failed almost beyond comprehension. Just put Mario Kart back into your DS slot and if you have one handy, use one of those Men in Black memory erasing devices on yourself so you’ll never have to relive the horror that is Big Mutha Truckers for the DS.

    If you are a fan of the series, you would need to have never played any other games over the last ten years for this to come across as impressive.

    A broken game that isn't recommended to anyone. Stay well away.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    As satisfying as a sand-ridden shoe, without the fortunate side effect of having gotten some fresh air. Take a ball to the local seaside shingle instead.

    By creating this absolute mess of a game, Eurocom have done a great disservice to themselves and fans of the franchise. Avoid at all costs.

    State of Emergency 2 is worse than its predecessor and has almost no redeeming features. We're hoping this is the end of the franchise because the gameplay is seriously outdated.

    Alvin and the Chipmunks is a terrible, terrible game. Nobody should have to endure the title.

    Quantum Theory is a disgrace to the video game industry.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 15 Critic Score
    Lazy, downright idiotic design coupled with a staggering lack of ideas. Awful.
    • 30 Metascore

    There's just nothing even slightly likeable in the game – players are more likely to have fun banging their heads against a wall or cleaning rubbish on a highway than they'll have with Crime Life.

    Playing Fight Club should be considered an act of masochism.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 10 Critic Score
    Borderline unplayable thanks to its horrid graphics, and the gameplay does nothing to inspire anyone to even attempt to persevere through its short yet inexplicably dull set pieces.
    • 28 Metascore

    Jumper: Griffin's Story is not only one of the worst movie to game adaptations we've ever played, it's quite simply one of the worst games ever.

    AFL Challenge is a dud of the game that not even an AFL fan would enjoy.

    The Elf Bowling games are so utterly simplistic, tedious and pointless that we are not sure if it should be legal to expect people to pay money for them. The fact that Ignition Entertainment thought that they could make money off such a piece of software is an insult to humanity. Nobody could possibly be stupid enough to pay money for this game.
