    A terrible waste of a potentially great franchise. There is a great Pirates Of The Caribbean game out there, just waiting to be made. This is not it. Swashbuckling and sailing the high seas has never felt so boring.

    Need For Speed: ProStreet feels like Forza 2's mindless clone, a la Doug #4 in Multiplicity. It is a bland, lifeless game requires a massive amount of tedium to get through.
    • 72 Metascore

    Those in dire need for a turn-based strategy title on the 360 will have no choice but to fork over the 800 MS Points, but it is hardly worth half that.

    The excitement of shooting oversized insects grows old rather quickly, and the scarcely earned Achievement Points will most assuredly leave this game on the outside of your counsel more than in it. The lack of Live play is a major deterrent to picking up this simple-minded title.

    If you have two or more gamers in your household that are interested in this style of game, it may be worth a weekend rental. If you’re looking for a game that’s fun single player, or online, you need to pass on this title.

    Fails to deliver as both an action game and as a Thor game. Sega clearly put effort into incorporating Thor's background lore and they did an admirable job of incorporating a rogue's gallery pulled straight from the Marvel comics, but they ultimately failed in delivering a fun gaming experience. I cannot even recommend this game to fellow Thor fans, as the repetitive combat, unmemorable puzzles, and shoddy platforming prevent this adventure from even achieving rentable status.

    Fatal Inertia is an exceedingly generic racer, with a lack of vehicles, races, and variety expected from a Live Arcade title. Speed right on by this one.

    Honestly, Tetris Evolution serves as one of the sorriest excuses for a retail title on the 360.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 53 Critic Score
    Almost nothing about in game can be described as enjoyable or satisfying.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 53 Critic Score
    It's almost as if Techland rushed this through testing merely to get back on Dead Island development…which would make sense if they had an idea how bad this game was getting.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    The chaos is fun to be a part of for the first few hours, but it becomes redundant too quick to recommend for anyone who isn’t looking for a title to play online or offline cooperatively with a family member or friend.

    Half the fun of a trivia game is that warm glow of superiority when you know something your friends do not. Thanks to the random-fact, numerical nature of the questions, that feeling of 'knowing' the answer does not happen often enough to warrant the, 800 Microsoft Points, price tag.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    Warriors: Orochi is the very definition of shallow gaming. There is not much to like here, at least not anything that you will not get very tired of half-an-hour in.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    Everything in the game is sloppily executed; the plot, the visuals, the multiplayer, everything in the game feels broken in some form or another. Even if you enjoyed the first, I implore you to avoid N3II.

    Rock Revolution is a disaster.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    Bomberman Act: Zero has cleverly tricked me into thinking it was a full fledged triple-A title with its price tag of $50, but after playing the game for five minutes I realized that this game is more like something you would pay 400 Microsoft Points for to download off of the Xbox Live Arcade.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 52 Critic Score
    Despite the occasional glitches and overly easy Achievement Points, gamers will still likely feel the nostalgic itch to fire up this classic from time to time. It is too bad there is not more than a memory pulling gamers back.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 51 Critic Score
    With the wealth of FPS options for 360 owners, Battle For The Pacific is hardly worth a passing thought.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 51 Critic Score
    A disappointing experience. Leave this one in your childhood memories, where you did not mind how shallow it was.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 51 Critic Score
    For 800 points, a rhythm game that has all the rhythmic sense of Urkel on the dance floor is a poor choice. Even if it had the rhythm it takes to call itself a rhythm game, the lack of sonic depth would make this a shallow title. If a shallow broken rhythm game sounds like your cup of tea, knock yourself out.

    It may be worth a one night rental, but if you buy it (as I did) you will be left needing a cutman after you bang your head up against the wall so many times.

    Anime fans will devour it alive, but everyone else probably won't get just what the hell Cell is.

    Stop torturing those poor worms, Team 17!

    NBA Ballers is a scatterbrained game that never decides quite what it is, and at no point resembles anything good. The game is only impressive in just how badly they miss the mark.
    • 52 Metascore

    There's quite a bit of awesome story within Game of Thrones, but the real question is if you can take whatever else is provided to get to it.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The presentation is pretty awful; it looks to be straight out of a Playstation 1 game, not a next-gen console.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The presentation doesn't do too much either. Some of the levels look good, and the animations aren't bad, but the dolls are unappealing and don't really sparkle with much personality.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A game that should have received a massive retooling to bring it into the modern era, or been left to those gamers that like to pull out their old NES system once in a while. Though the game is only 400 points, that is a steep price for about 20 minutes of game play.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Ultimately, I can't recommend the title at 800 MS points, but the demo is available and worth a shot for anyone who feels puzzle titles are closer to their hearts than games belonging to other genres.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The presentation's just below overage, thanks to a number of glitches and uninspired level designs. It just generally falls apart – like some sort of scheme that Naughty Bear has hatched up.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The only person I can recommend this to is a sado-masochist. They will enjoy the torture and unbearing pain that is this game. Please, avoid at all costs.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Normally I wouldn't mind graphics that weren't state-of-the-art if they had a unique style to them, but Mindjack's style is just too bland to excuse.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Monotonous gameplay, awkward movements and uninspired missions quickly kill the mood that your hopes for the game had set.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Its presentation goes the distance, but the cruddy gameplay and unbalanced AI keep this ride firmly grounded. Get your cruising kicks elsewhere.

    Dragon's Lair is a heralded classic that, in some forms, still stands the test of time, but Digital Leisure kind of flubbed this version by overpricing it at ten bucks and trying to make it "new tech" by adding useless Kinect controls.

    Those looking to continue their Olympic high with this title will be sorely disappointed.

    In total, the whole Basic Training experience lives up to the 'basic' in the title, and will take you an hour to complete.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    Despite its flaws, many of which are correctable with a patch, it does an admirable job of sharpening your mind in an entertaining fashion.

    • 48 Critic Score
    Thanks to its great concept and terrible execution, Operation Darkness is the very definition of a guilty pleasure game.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 47 Critic Score
    This spin-off not only shoots itself in the foot, but the arms, the head…every nether region, pretty much. Skip it and just wait for RE 6. That'll obviously be the real experience we deserve.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 46 Critic Score
    Beast Rider deserves a place in the gaming hall of shame, easily one of the worst titles on 360 and with an obscene price-point to boot.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 46 Critic Score
    Divinity 2 isn't a bad game solely because of its throwaway writing and the unfortunate game engine, but because it suffuses every design with hate for the player.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    Poor controls ultimately doom it, making you feel even clumsier at kung fu than Po ever did. Skip this drudge and go see the movie instead. You'll have more fun, and enough money left over afterwards to take a karate class.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    In essence, 007 Legends falls flat on so many levels, it does a disservice to Bond instead of paying tribute to him. It's sloppy in some places, inconsistent and bland with its gameplay, and not really as well put together as it should've been.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    The only reasoning I can see behind playing Legendary is to see the awe-inspired mythological creatures in action.

    If you haven’t had your fill of the Dynasty Warriors franchise, I’d recommend picking up Onechanbara for the absurd storyline and characters alone.

    CSI: Hard Evidence makes Phoenix Wright look like Sherlock Holmes. The game's limited cases and mind numbingly bland gameplay makes this a questionable rental, at best.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    The game's control scheme is basic to the point where you could play with an Atari controller.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 41 Critic Score
    Sadly, you will battle nearly as many bugs as Nazis through the course of Turning Point. For all the game gets wrong, which marks about ninety-eight percent of the game, they deserve credit for at least writing a solid, heroic ending to the game. The trick is plodding through four to five hours of bad to get to the thirty-seconds of goodness.

    Cabela's Big Game Hunt is fails to deliver on all fronts, failing to provide a realistic hunting simulation or at least compelling gameplay.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The graphics look good, and the anime structure is loyal, but the gameplay just fails to keep up on any end. Drunken anime lunatics and kids are sure to love this, but everyone else should proceed with caution. You'll be going "Kamehame-HUH?!" in no time, assured.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Battleship the Video Game is just as forgettable as the movie. It's lacking any sort of replay value, outside of hunting down little Battleship pegs or playing through on a harder difficulty – but why punish yourself? The graphics fail to deliver, as does the audio and the set-up.
    • 25 Metascore

    To be completely honest and brutal, there is nothing to like about Box Office Bust. It is hard to find any game that is completely worthless, but this is thankfully one of a kind.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 37 Critic Score
    NeverDead had some interesting ideas, but they play out badly here, between the loose, flawed gameplay and the problematic presentation, not to mention the lack of any significant replay value, despite a few decent game moments and the presence of co-op.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 35 Critic Score
    Quantum Theory can hardly be congratulated for infringing on other games, as it is hardly even capable of doing that properly. Albeit all attempts to be Gears of War, Quantum Theory is no more fun than burning $60 dollars and to be honest, burning money isn't exactly a lucrative or entertaining hobby.

    Jumper's redeeming quality is its overwhelmingly easy Achievement Points. Be warned, however, this is no Avatar; you will have to play through the game to get all of them, perhaps even twice.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 33 Critic Score
    It falls short in all areas, and even its over-the-top brutality can't save it from being a mundane effort.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 33 Critic Score
    What at first sounds like 'fun for the whole family' turns out to be a bad case of 'fun for nobody.' Rocky And Bullwinkle is an unfortunate case of a good license slapped on a terrible excuse for a game.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 33 Critic Score
    If mind-numbingly easy repetition is what you enjoy in a game, knock yourself out.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 32 Critic Score
    Really, it is a damn shame that it does not currently work. When/if the game's online functionality is fixed, it appears to be a rather rich, ambitious online experience.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 31 Critic Score
    Resist the urge for the cheap points, as your 400 Microsoft Points would be better spent purchasing horse armor for "Oblivion."
    • 56 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    The comic book sequences and multiplayer have a few fleeting moments of entertainment, but not nearly enough to justify the $50 cost. Go rent a Bruce Lee flick instead and try to pretend you're him, you'll make a stronger Impact than you ever will here.

    • 19 Critic Score
    Honestly, Fighters Uncaged simply isn't worth breaking a sweat over. You'd be better off facing a real challenge, like trying to play Super Street Fighter IV one-handed or trying to play the boxing game in Kinect Sports blind-folded. No one should subject himself or herself to the pain of Fighters Uncaged. Avoid it.

    This is one of the worst games of the year, and we're not even at the end of the first month yet. It's poorly realized and a huge technical failure, and no one – not even die-hard survival horror fans – should touch it. Someone banish this kid to a private school and never send her my way again.
