    G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra fails to deliver the goods on any conceivable level, and it’s simply because the production is mediocre in terms of both technicals and gameplay.
    • 49 Metascore

    It's accessible and sort of amusing for a little while, but the instant you realize the single-player element is extremely short and ultimately disappointing, you might regret the purchase.

    I can’t take any more, this game is awful.
    • 51 Metascore

    Incredibly disappointing. Even if you were to find three friends with PSP’s and copies of the game, you could only play four games, which is a complete joke.

    From Russia With Love is a perfect example of how not to port a game from the PS2 to PSP. It does absolutely nothing new and a host of things much worse.
    • 47 Metascore

    This is the epitome a game that was quickly thrown together with the most basic and juvenile concepts videogaming has.

    So in the end, there are plenty of great games out there, and without any doubt, this definitely isn't one of them.

    Slow, and stupid. Fielders will inexplicably hold onto the ball before moving to throw it, which in turn causes a whole lot of infield hits.

    If it isn't obvious by now, I'll make it painfully obvious here...this is a terrible game with no redeemable merits. Championship Paintball 2009 offers absolutely nothing in terms of fun or a rewarding experience. It is one of the most monotone, hollow gaming experiences available and you're better off putting your gaming money elsewhere.

    Cars Race-O-Rama takes a good concept and fails to implement it properly. The idea comes up well short due to erratic and somewhat unreliable physics, an overly bland atmosphere, a sense of definite repetitiveness, and a lack of mechanical upgrades that could’ve made the experience richer.

    Nothing more than an awful game, with horrific visuals, arguably the worst framerate this generation has seen, poor audio, and cookie-cutter gameplay that'll bore you to tears. As a torture device, Blacksite works extremely well, so if you're into masochism, this'll do the trick.

    • 44 Critic Score
    No one element is good and the final product is a mish-mash of half-realized concepts and ideas. It's too bad, really.

    Nobody wanted to love DNF more than me but I just couldn't get any enjoyment out of it.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 43 Critic Score
    Looks like a great idea on paper, but it fails to be even mildly entertaining past the first hour of play. There’s no excuse for the game’s camera, and the long load times and slow pacing are just icing on the cake.

    Looney Tunes: Acme Arsenal is a seriously flawed game that continually stops the player from reveling in old-time cartoon entertainment.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 43 Critic Score
    G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra certainly looks and even plays a little better on the next-gen systems, but this PS2 version should be avoided at all costs. There’s very little in the way of redeeming qualities, and just about every aspect of this production has its fair share of problems. There’s no need to elaborate further; just stay away.

    X-Men: Destiny trips and stumbles out of the gate, and never gets going. Way too many problems hold it back; the shortcomings range from control to story to presentation to technical elements, etc, etc, etc. It's just a really disappointing production and one that isn't even worth a rent.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    There just doesn't seem to be any real effort involved in this production, and if that's the case, we probably shouldn't be rewarding poor performance. That's just the logical consumer talking.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    We’re always looking to see if a game based on a movie hits its target audience (the fans, obviously), and Coraline misses the mark. There just isn’t enough to do, and when the best parts of the game aren’t interactive, the entire thing just feels superfluous.
    • tbd Metascore

    Sometimes it worked; sometimes it didn’t. And it felt downright silly to be flinging the controller all over the place during battle.

    NBA Live is a colossal disappointment in more ways then one; the technical aspects are well below average, the physics and animations are some of the worst we’ve seen this year, the AI is mentally deficient, and worst of all, nothing about this feels real.
    • 81 Metascore

    An unoriginal game that fails to improve on any of the games it emulates. It’s just another game in a long line of “me too” cookie-cutter platformers that fills the stores around Christmas time.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 41 Critic Score
    The game has so many technical flaws that you simply cannot enjoy the experience.
    • 40 Metascore

    The Golden Compass really isn't anything more than yet another game based on a movie that falls well shy of "quality." ‘sigh' The trend may never die.
    • 63 Metascore

    For $49.99, it’s a definite pass; maybe when it drops down to budget price all you nature fans might give it a try. Just don’t expect much…at least it’s cheaper than a real safari.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 41 Critic Score
    A disappointment, plain and simple. The gameplay is so erratic and the AI is so obscenely challenging that you’ll likely become irritated in record time, and the old technical palette has finally outworn its welcome.
    • 36 Metascore

    Everything about playing Power Gig: Rise of the SixString is either disappointing or irksome in some way.
    • 47 Metascore

    Really the only thing Battle Nexus has going for it is the original TMNT arcade game being included, but even that stinks because you are forced to play through a good part of the new game to unlock the 15 year old game that’s 5 times better.

    Metropolismania 2 is an often-charming and well put-together simulation, but the severe lack of depth, virtually non-existent technical appeal, exaggerated simplicity of the building process, and generally boring (and even tediously repetitive) structure kills any chance the game may have had.

    We have to give Crave props for trying to break the monotony by letting us create our own character and customize our own pad, and we do appreciate the different play areas, but this just doesn’t work as a video game.
