    It’s serviceable. Both in that it’s fan service, and that it’s a game that can only be described as workable.

    AvP far outstrips the movies of the same name, but is no where near the landmark experience that the original game was.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A solid, above-average RPG. It does little new and doesn't advance the RPG genre any, yet is still good enough and would be a steal with a lower price.

    While the battle system receives two thumbs up for trying, the rest of the game receives a thumbs down. The steep difficulty might turn off casual RPG fans, though hardcore RPG fans will enjoy the challenge.

    Rather than a true piece of DLC, The Taxidermist feels more like a deleted scene from the game–something that the developers began to work on, but, for some reason or another, never quite finished.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    At $4.99 the game is at the top end of the minis price range, making it rather costly for a game that is basically just a rudimentary time management game. Supermarket Mania can provide hours of enjoyment for fans of management sims, but it does little to provide anything new or unique, and fails to expand upon the genre.

    Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days suffers from many issues. Everything from choppy gameplay to bland character design plague what could have been a semi-decent title. Simply put, these are definitely dog days for Kane & Lynch and after this sequel, let's hope they stay dead men.

    If you think you have what it takes to be the next "Top Gun," you can take to the skies for $15 on the PlayStation Store. However, if you decide not to take the gamble on this game, perhaps a video rental of that classic movie will give a much better feel for the real "Maverick."

    With 20 levels of increasing difficulty it does have a good bit of replay, but it is a shame that all the levels are identical.

    Overall Earthworm Jim HD suffers from many poor design choice which really puts forth that this it is a remake of an older game. From the lack of weapon choices to the frustrating level design it has a hard time competing with today's games. All that being said it still has its fun parts and the multiplayer is excellent with friends.

    Warriors of Rock is in no way a broken game – there is just nothing very compelling or ground-breaking brought to the stage.
    • 68 Metascore

    Sure, it's not as refined as its competitors, but WRC delivers a solid rally experience, particularly for hardcore fans. But the sub-standard visuals detract from the otherwise entertaining racing experience and the lackluster presentation doesn't the help the game in any way.

    Front Mission Evolved is a bold risk, a gamble, and a new direction for the series. Unfortunately the negatives outweigh the positives making a purchase a tough decision when games are expensive.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Blood Stone is an enjoyable game if you can see through the bland driving action, forgettable story and the shoehorned multiplayer mode, but at the end of the day this ambitious game has a lot of unfulfilled potential that could further add onto the promise that this series has going for itself.

    Time Crisis: Razing Storm might not be the blockbuster shooter title that the PlayStation Move is waiting for, but if you're looking for a fun arcade shooter to play with a friend, this might be your cup of tea.

    Overall, Apache Air Assault offers players enough content across its 16 levels of multiple stages to warrant a purchase. However, because of the lacking variety in the missions and the all too quick repetitive nature of title, many gamers may find themselves growing tired of flying the Apache's before they have even managed to get past the learning curve.

    If you can see through the repetitive, sometimes frustrating gameplay, then you may get your fix here.

    When the final Stormtrooper is slain, only one word comes to mind that describes Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II: disappointing.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's in no way a bad game, especially once the Galleries are factored in, it's just not, at all, a good one. There was potential, and the campaign's story and mood are easily the best in any hunting game, but, in the end, it simply doesn't hit its mark.

    From its sometimes frustrating platforming, to its button mashing combat, Tron: Evolution has many shortcomings. Even with these issues, fans of the Tron universe will get some enjoyment out of this game, and all in all it is not a bad rental, but for those who are not interested in the franchise, its best to steer clear of the game.

    Just a demo of Move controls in the LBP universe.

    The music is pleasing, and the art style is impressive. But with a weak story, bland fetch quests comprising the majority of your campaign, and absolutely no voiceover work whatsoever, this game is hard to recommend to anyone but fans of this genre of games.

    Trinity: Souls of Zill O'll can be summed up in ultimately one word: average. It's nothing you simply must buy.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Slam Bolt Scrappers serves its course as a good multiplayer title but feels incomplete, especially at its current price of $15. At a little more than a dollar a level, there is tremendous opportunity for a complete world of creative level design that you'll feel cheated out of.

    But if you enjoy the thrill of this particular chase, and can overlook the game's average visuals, occasionally glitchy audio, and even the rather flat control scheme in cockpit mode, then you will likely enjoy MotoGP 10/11.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A title that will only appeal to hack and slash fanatics, and will push away many people looking for something more.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's a completely generic affair, however, that does not stray from your typical formula of level grinding and copious, repeating dungeons.
    • 72 Metascore

    To say that Brink is a bad game wouldn't be accurate, and instead it's a good game that falls short on delivering its full potential. Had it come with more maps, and a little bit more emphasis on the story to make gamers want to learn more about The Ark, it would have been a great class shooter. Straight out of the box it is just a decent one with bad A.I.

    For Virtua Tennis to survive, it needs new ideas, and a more robust experience wrapped around the fast-paced experience.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A moderately fun action-adventure title that creates an interesting, albeit confusing experience to play through, which just needed a little more polish, spark, and character progression to make it great.
