    Frantix just doesn't quite work. Seriously, ask yourself "do I find mazes fun?" For most people, the answer is no. Worse, the few diehard maze fanatics out there that actually might want a game like this will probably be turned off by its dodgy controls.

    In this adventure, there is a total of about 60 minutes of quality gameplay. The rest leaves me deeply upset with Sega and the hole they've dug for Sonic.

    Reservoir Dogs has more major flaws regarding the core gameplay, and because it takes a more direct and linear approach, can't cover up the minor problems with open-ended adventure.

    The multiplayer mode also feels sort of tacked on; you and a friend can head out and take on the shuffling hordes, but it's basically the same experience.

    Hail to the Chimp has a good heart and really tries to build on the aforementioned foundation, but there’s just too much "meh" going on.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    Has a ton of potential and promise but doesn't really deliver.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    The scope of the game is too small (it can be finished in less than 10 hours), the mechanics are really basic and/or sloppy, and the graphics are nothing to get excited about.

    If you’ve got a child or sibling under twelve with a good imagination, they might have a good time with Operation Spy. Anyone else will likely find the game uninteresting, especially since most of the content is locked.

    Don't bother renting or buying this game if you're only mildly interested in the Godzilla concept, felt the previous game sucked, or consider yourself a fighting game snob. The best thing about Godzilla: Save The Earth is that Godzilla is in it.

    The game is fun, and it’s even more fun when playing co-op. It has a boatload of charm. The fighting is fast-paced and occasionally rewarding. But where’s the rest of it? Where’s the robust skill set, the varied combat challenges, the compelling story and character development? We’ve come to expect this and we certainly expect it from a new era of gaming.

    All I can say to the dedicated followers is this- Play the game on Hard Mode. It's really the only way you'll make it feel like Ninja Gaiden. But even that can't erase the bad camera, occasionally faltering frame rate, disappointing visual presentation, the lackluster online, and oh yes, the disappearance of other weapons.

    Blade Kitten is one of those good ideas that stumbles due to mediocre execution and almost mindless repetition, in terms of both gameplay and technical aspects.

    Tale of Despereaux really tries. We’ll give it that. But with such loose and wonky control, a fixed camera that’s functional yet still problematic, and a repetitive adventure that grows tiresome all too soon, the game doesn’t deliver.

    Gundam vs. Zeta Gundam is not a horrible game, but it’s designed for an incredibly niche audience, and its gameplay and graphics are so out of date that there’s no compelling reason for anyone else to give it a shot.

    If you’re looking for a great X-Men game, consider the enjoyable Legends series. The generic, thrown together experience known as X-Men: The Official Game is not what you’re looking for.

    Spider-Man 3's biggest problem is that it has a camera and framerate that makes the game nearly unplayable.

    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.
    • 51 Metascore

    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.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 54 Critic Score
    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.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 53 Critic Score
    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.
