    Planet Crashers is the perfect example of how not to do an RPG, with awful game design and nothing to enjoy at all.

    Naruto Shippuden 3D: The New Era is a lesson in how not to do platformers. A shoddy effort.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Dungeon Hunter: Alliance is a lousy game. It's never particularly enjoyable, is technically clumsy, and looks like garbage. It may well be the worst game in the Vita's launch line-up.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A true video game nasty in all the wrong ways, Splatterhouse is a poor conversion of a poor game, with shoddy virtual controls, one-dimensional beat-'em-up action and plain bad graphics.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Ugly, unfair, unenjoyable: Asphalt Injection should be headed to the wrecker's yard, not your Vita's memory card.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    An inexcusably repetitive, soulless experience.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Yawn-inducing shmuppery in the guise of a dress-up game, this odd combination of genres doesn't work here, compounded by low production values and poor handling.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Despite source material that found success on the PC, Aliens vs Predator: Requiem is dull, repetitive, illogical, glitchy, and everything that gives movie tie-ins a bad name.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A weak collection of badly implemented mini-games, you'd be better off paying out for a seaside Punch and Judy show than a session with Carnival Funfair Games.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A basic and stale RPG that sows few seeds of flair and inventiveness over its vast and tiresome expanse.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A disappointingly half-baked piece of video game entertainment that should be returned to the chef immediately.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Whether or not you believe WayForward is an indie saviour for the Nintendo 3DS, there's no denying that Regular Show is the studio's worst release.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    With wonky controls and lacking even the most basic of features, Warm Gun is a multiplayer-only FPS that should be left alone.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    There might be a good game somewhere here, but Little Amazon feels far too cynical to recommend.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A truly forgettable driving game that neither offers the intensity of a true sim or the fun and thrills of an arcade racer.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    As for the DS version, it's a thumbs down and prolonged raspberry from us. When the only thing you can applaud is the competent way the trademark music is used, you know you've a stinker on your hands.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    From the outdated graphics to lackluster gameplay, the game possesses more shortcomings than strengths, making it impossible to recommend to anyone but the Transformer faithful.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Lacking in character and bloated in fetch work, Unlimited Cruise SP is a clumsily translated import that, just like the game's missing second episode, should have been buried at sea.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Voice Fantasy is so shallow and lacking in gameplay, it's mystifying how it passes as a game.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Repetitive, ugly and very, very simple for most of its lifespan; Crash Bandicoot: Mind Over Mutant won't frustrate, but he won't entertain for long either.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Touch Battle Tank 3D has tanks, but not a whole lot else. Avoid, then avoid some more.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Quantity over quality, this suite of gambling games fails to capture the thrill of throwing all your money away on the single spin of a wheel.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Dull, by-the-numbers platformer that fails to exploit either George's or the DS's unique strengths.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Novel and at times rather pretty, yet also banal and ugly, only die-hard fans of LCD games need take on this disappointing downloadable.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    There's a nice idea in the eye of this storm, but Tornado's harsh time limits and general repetition rip up its reputation.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Pint-sized Picassos may be enticed by Paint by DS but it would be a crying shame if they were to neglect real-world artistic endeavours in favour of this limp product.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Ace Tennis 2010 Online is a well-intentioned tennis game that does everything wrong from ill-advised controls to sub par multiplayer.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Muddled handling that confuses simulation steering with arcade speed makes MotoGP 2010 a disappointment not only for its lack of features, but for its gameplay as well.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A stunningly poor game, Return to Castlerama feels utterly unfinished.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A short, undemanding romp through the dressings of an infinitely better console title.
