    While there was a lot of potential here for a quality licensed video game, it ended up being marred with problems with the controls, frustrating difficulty and lame environments.

    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.

    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.

    Almost nothing about in game can be described as enjoyable or satisfying.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    With the wealth of FPS options for 360 owners, Battle For The Pacific is hardly worth a passing thought.
    • 43 Metascore

    A disappointing experience. Leave this one in your childhood memories, where you did not mind how shallow it was.
    • 69 Metascore

    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.

    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.

    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.
