    I’ve got no problem with breezy little games designed to give us a breather from those huge open-world extravaganzas that are starting to dominate. I do, however, have a problem with any game that comes across as slipshod and unrefined.

    There is definitely a lot of potential behind the series, but Genji is far too broken to be enjoyable. The gameplay lacks flow and fluidity, and begs for Devil May Cry-like speed. Moreover the combat is clunky and just isn't fun.

    WALL-E is a boring game with sub-par gameplay, poor replay value, lacking presentation, and little-to-no visual polish.

    There are simply too many issues that override the tidbits of "good" sprinkled throughout.

    It's just way too irritating.

    It's got a great soundtrack and good charts, but the use of covers is painful to listen to, largely thanks to the singing - it's just that lackluster.

    This simply isn't what I'd call a polished game; it is below what the average racing game should be. It's largely ruined by its impairing visuals, as they prevent you from accurately judging distances, thus ruining your ability to take a proper turn. It offers the rudimentary gameplay content, and doesn't have any online gameplay to speak of.

    The control can be iffy, a few of the event mechanics are horrendous, the technicals are sadly well under par, and the Campaign includes plenty of “what the hell am I doing this for?” moments. But you can wrap your brain around most of the gameplay, and that’s a definite plus. With multiple difficulty levels and the chance to include some buddies in your play time, you could have plenty of fun when the wintry weather keeps you inside.

    Entirely unremarkable.

    Killer is Dead has a lot going for it. The foundation is there. But the positives are mired beneath a poor gameplay mechanic that makes even simple control a chore. The story isn’t allowed to shine due to simplistic writing and stereotypical characters, the difficulty can be very erratic, and too many deaths feel cheap and unfair.

    It's ironic that we get such a lengthy tutorial to start, and then we still have dozens of questions as the game progresses. Then you've got a horrid main character, only mildly intriguing combat mechanics (which could've been very intriguing had they been correctly described and implemented), and a story that, despite its merits, remains juvenile.

    But it's all just so… Just pick your favorite synonym for bland or flat. The control is fine, some of the backdrops are cool, and particularly hectic firefights can deliver the energetic goods. But the skill shot system clashes badly with the overall theme, the campaign is way too short (and quite boring), the multiplayer is lackluster, and the AI isn't bright.

    Planet 51 just doesn’t deliver. The entire production feels bare and a little watered down, and the technical hang-ups continue to persist throughout the game.

    All in all, MX vs. ATV Untamed is not a product you want to spend $60 on. In fact, it's not even a product you'd want to spend $20 on. The bottom line here is that this is a very poorly done game, that suffers from uninspired gameplay, poor track design, redundancy, and a lacking online component.

    In the end, you’ll probably make it through Las Vegas, San Francisco, and London, but after that, if you’re still playing, you’re either immensely bored or far more enamored with the game than I was.

    But the Story Mode is just plain broken; directing with the Move and actually moving with either the left analog stick of the wireless DS3 or the Nav controller doesn't work well at all. It's just unbelievably irritating.

    Madagascar 2 is neither a good game, nor a learning experience for your young one. Chances are, your kid's capable of playing something more advanced than Madagascar 2, because this is about as simplistic as it can get.

    Like the Frankenstein's monster of every straight-up action game you've played in the past few years. It has all the basic parts and it's kind of sewn together properly, but the end result is a broken, half-retarded thing that's a little unsteady on its feet.

    It doesn't have a riveting story, it's easy, the gameplay is stale and shallow – in short, and it offers nothing new.

    This game could've used another few months in development so as to iron out the flaws and little glitches, because this entire production feels rushed.

    Little Deviants has some ambition and creativity and it's often inarguably amusing. But the generic, bland nature of the goals in each game mode, the lackluster presentation, and the erratic and unreliable control hinder it big time. Worse, there's always a pervading sense that this is less a game and more of an incomplete production with only hardware features as the inspiration.

    Warriors Orochi is another fanservice game, plain and simple, and really doesn't appeal to gamers who don't appreciate the "been there, done that" rehash. Because really, despite a few small upgrades, that's all this is.

    It's easily the worst of the summer trilogy titles (Pirates, Spidey, Shrek), which is sort of apt, seeing as how it was also the worst among the competing trilogy movies. Poor visuals, dated gameplay, and horrible audio really make this one a game to avoid.

    Legendary is an example of a title that could’ve been both exceptional and memorable, but ends up being neither due to a variety of major flaws in the glaring inconsistencies, unrefined technicals, and overall gameplay.

    We're left with a very empty feeling after playing Heatseeker for even a few hours. It starts off entertaining but loses all its appeal and fun factor very rapidly.

    We'll finish with a bad pun- it was a good "plan," but it lacked execution, and ultimately got caught in its own web of poorly implemented - yet crafty - techniques.

    Lastly, the time manipulation feature works just fine and makes combat much easier at times, but most players will just abuse the hell out of it due to the inherent challenge.

    There are limitations to all hardware and perhaps we have to wait for the next generation before more strides can be taken in the realm of realism. But when you show no progress whatsoever and you appear content to sit on your laurels, the result is an outdated, unsatisfying simulator that is technically flawed and generally unimpressive.

    Ratatouille, without any doubt, is far better as a movie, and even big fans of the film probably won't get too much enjoyment out of the game.
