    I could mention other issues; like the fact that the whole game barely takes 3 hours to complete, the inclusion of a lame 2-D bonus game, or the lack of any sort of multiplayer features; but to complain any further would just be beating a very dead horse.

    If you see it in a 99-cent bin somewhere...avoid it. If someone leaves it at your doorstep, call your local anti-terrorist organization and have forensics experts find out who would do such a heinous act. Yes, I'm being a bit harsh here, but so was Activision when they decided to create a game that offers absolutely no value, terrible gameplay, awful visuals, and poor audio and charge nearly full price for it.

    Alone in the Dark is ambitious, but it trips, stumbles, and…well, breaks. It’s a bad PS2 game and we can’t imagine it would get that much better on the PS3.

    Naughty Bear is just another game that features a great concept but fails miserably in execution, which is why you really shouldn't bother paying full pop for this one.

    Hannah Montana: Spotlight World Tour may deliver the music the fans want, but as far as the gameplay goes, there are just too many problems for us to recommend a purchase, even for the most ardent Hannah follower.

    If you’re into mindless shooting and action, Dead to Rights II might be a pleasant weekend diversion. However, if you’re looking for a game that improves on the original, delivers an interesting story, varied gameplay, and is worth $50, you need to look elsewhere.

    Aliens: Colonial Marines has little to nothing in the way of redeeming value.

    Last Rebellion is a dull, witless, ugly, uninspired adventure with only glimpses of the quality and innovation that could’ve been obtained with a lot more work on the part of the designers.

    In the end, The Shield really can't even cater to its target audience due to committing one cardinal sin: it couldn't recreate the stylish, immersive atmosphere of the show.

    SCORE International: Baja 1000 is, quite simply, a waste of anyone’s time, and that includes fans of the niche off-road racing genre.

    Chances are, however, that no one is going to buy or rent this game just so they can unlock the Edmonton Oilers' Wayne Gretzky that scored 50 goals in 39 games during the 1981 season.

    Atrocious gameplay. Avoid this one at all costs, unless you're a huge Gundam fan. A huge, huge fan who hasn't played a video game since Tetris. But even then, no promises.

    Constantine (the game) is terrible... In the early days of the PS2, Constantine would've been cutting-edge; a fun action romp. But this is 2005, not 2001. We demand that games look, sound, and play better than this.

    Ford Racing: Off Road is a throwaway title that lacks any professional refinement that’s most necessary this day and age; just because it’s a PS2 game doesn’t change the fact that this is 2008. Developers have managed to do some pretty incredible things with that system, and while we understand this wasn’t a big-budget project, the amount of exhibited effort is very low.

    Don’t bother with Godzilla because it’s a tedious, poorly produced, irritating, utterly underwhelming production that has only the bare minimum to offer die-hard followers of the franchise.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 35 Critic Score
    The gameplay is uninspired and repetitive, the story is a mess, nobody will care about the protagonist, and the challenge is minimal. And the worst part? Nothing about this is scary. You’ll stumble across a few appropriately freaky parts but even those begin to dwindle with time. If you want frightening, play Outlast. Otherwise, save your money and wait for something else.

    Reliving the real-life Olympics is a far better option that trying to experience them in a virtual realm; this game will frustrate, annoy, and soon tire most any gamer.

    A shame, not because I feel teenagers shouldn't be allowed to watch dumb women take their tops off, but because they'll end up buying a crappy game to do so.

    Quantum Theory is the epitome of awful game design. Uninspired. Underdeveloped. Gray. Some of the worst story telling this generation has seen, coupled with some of the worst visuals you'll find on your beautiful PS3 or Xbox 360, in addition to level design that'll bore you the minute you lay your eyes on it.

    If I was sitting in a dentist’s office, had ten minutes to kill, and someone handed me Street Supremacy, I’d be happy to play it; that way I could be numb for the pain of getting a cavity filled.

    The storyline is completely uninteresting and suffers from pacing issues, every last battle feels identical - and that includes the lame boss encounters - and combat is all about jamming on the same buttons.

    AMY
    AMY lets you down in just about every possible category. The mechanics are bad, the Lana/Amy tandem is barely mediocre, the acting and writing is sub-par, the game design (from the ridiculous checkpoints/saving system to how the environment is laid out) is poor and immensely frustrating, and lastly, it just isn't scary.

    It's not often we get something quite this bad. If you have a sense of humor when it comes to truly awful games, we might actually recommend you rent this one, because you'll be laughing yourself silly within a few minutes of play.

    Really, only the control is a possible saving grace but that’s not enough to compensate for the tremendously bad presentation, design, style, and overall gameplay.

    We have no way of recommending this game, even if you’re desperate for some multiplayer summer sports fun. Beijing 2008 is another waste of money, but at the very least, this one doesn’t cost as much. Well, whatever. Bleh.

    Nothing more than a half-assed rush job, resulting in a monotonous, glitch-riddled, highly repetitive portable experience. The game looks like hell, the AI is terrible, the story is meaningless, and the controls just aren't right. There is some legitimate entertainment to be found in the multiplayer, but that aspect is so terribly plagued with technical mishaps and an overall ho-hum feeling that it's not reason enough to warrant a purchase.

    So, curse you Konami, for releasing Frogger: Ancient Shadow, which made me scream and throw my controller, and thank you Konami, for releasing "Frogger: Helmet Chaos" [PSP/DS], which I had some fun with.

    A terrible game. It’s not fun, it’s infuriating, and it feels like a budget title that was rushed out the door. Unless you have an incredibly high tolerance for dying and repeating tasks, there’s no reason to spend another second thinking about this game.

    What a letdown, considering that the version included with "Capcom Classics Collection" was arcade-perfect.

    Biker Mice From Mars is a total waste of time. We can't put it any more succinctly than that.
