    Tony Hawk's Proving Ground feels like the videogame equivalent of tail grab after getting a few feet of air - nothing special. You have played this game before, many times, and were probably much happier at the time. Games in a series are supposed to get better, not stagnate and die a slow death.

    Hexic 2 feels more like a bad knock-off than a sequel. The excitement of playing the uber-addictive puzzler in head-to-head battle mode never quite makes up for the poor, drab graphics and frustratingly hard-to-see gem selector.

    While it may have ruined the film-to-game consistency, Shrek The Third could have been a much better experience with some multi-player over Live.

    Conflict is not a terrible game, but there is no hook here to set it apart from the countless other (and better) first-person military shooters already available.

    Cars is aimed at children and delivers, for them only. There is a place in the 360 market for a game made for young kids, but there is no place in an adult's game library for this.

    Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is not worth anything more than an afternoon sit-down or rainy weekend rental.
    • 52 Metascore

    The camera is unfocused and frustrating; the gameplay too chaotic for its own good; and the lack of a strong storyline make it feel like everything's barely holding together with cheap adhesive.

    This is a shame, because a management game is a good idea for Live Arcade, which is currently filled with puzzle titles and coin-ops. But Outpost Kaloki X just doesn't have the qualities of Rollercoaster Tycoon - it never feels like you are in charge.

    Slightly Mad dropped the ball a little bit with the game's controls and limitations.

    The planes, their camouflage and most of the battles are all true and valid to their real-life counterparts; but, some of the presentations and mechanics of the game are quite unrealistic.

    The graphics are sub par and the audio is nothing special; coupled with the occasional graphical glitches and bugs, the game ends up looking like it wasn’t finished.

    The only redeeming value of Mercenaries 2 is the online co-op play, but even that has bugs and glitches.

    It's a good one to two night rental at best.

    It's like a soap opera demanding that you give a damn about this person when you barely even know them.

    What can gamers take away from their experience with Zoids Assault? Well, first off, the strategy role-playing genre is still in need of a worthy candidate to make the genre look extraordinary again. Secondly, the developers need to hire better writers to create a campaign truly worthy of our time.

    Perhaps with a little more time spent on the combat and a longer story, Just Cause could have been a much better title.

    It's very clear that they wanted to make an anime, but somehow wounded up making a video game instead. It's a short game that you will watch more than you play, only taking about 6 to 7 hours to complete on the hardest difficulty setting. Replay value is laughable, with the only unlocks to be found are different looking health bars.

    Mad Tracks is an underwhelming first effort from Load Inc. Xbox Live Arcade titles are understandably held to looser standards than their retail counterparts, but this title needs some polish in its graphical and audio content.

    The game gets increasingly difficult, so much that you probably won't want to play through the game upon completing it once or twice except to snag some elusive achievements.

    If you’re an insane fan of the series, you have already bought it and if you like action games like X-Men Legends and Ultimate Alliance you should definitely check this out at your local Blockbuster (or GameFly). Otherwise steer clear of what turns out to be the worst of the video games based on movies so far in 2007.

    This game may not appeal to a big percentage of soccer fans. Nevertheless, it does provide a few good laughs albeit short-lived. It’s not a game I can see myself playing consistently.

    The game is incredibly short, clocking in at five to six hours, and focuses too much on the things fans of the series do not want to do (random puzzles and hating your favorite characters) rather than the things they want, like exploring the island or being rewarded an answer or two.

    Die-hard Gyruss fans with 400 Microsoft Points to spare could do worse to try to recapture their youth, but should note that you will only remember half the game fondly; and for a limited time at that.

    The game will only take most gamers five hours, at most, to complete, but it does offer a little bonus replay value in the way of same-console multiplayer modes.

    Terminator Salvation is only worth a weekend rental if you have a few friends coming over to play cooperative with.

    The audio portion contains pitiful voice-acting and sound effects while having a great soundtrack. Yeah, it’s easy to notice that Warhammer is a mixed bag.

    Since all the gameplay mechanics, missions and much more have glaring flaws it’s hard to recommend this game to anyone.

    The sloppy gameplay and missing long-term replayability leave it being stuck in the "Kinect gimmick game" pile, rather than standing out.

    If you are a complete demented whack job, hey, this might be the game for you but for those looking for solid gameplay via both SP and MP, Soldier of Fortune: Payback is not worthy of a rent let alone a $60 purchase.

    The reliance on platforming badly mars the gameplay, which never fares well with a first-person view.
