    Sideways: New York separates itself with it gravity tricks and keen aesthetics, but comes charging back to the pack with its mediocre gameplay and slightly repetitive content. There's a lot of nice glitz here but not much substance.

    Sure, it’s nothing groundbreaking or even all that original, but it is good, solid platforming, a loving tribute to the original material, and best of all, a lot of fun.

    Yes, the addition of checkpoints eases the frustration, but only a bit. This is a series that can absolutely end up being great, but to get there, it still needs a better scope on varied (and, hopefully, jaw-slackeningly beautiful) level design and for the love of God, Sega, fix that damned camera.

    R isn’t a horrible game, and if you actually get a bit used to the controls it’s absolutely playable, but the whole idea is that you shouldn’t have to get used to a racing game’s controls unless it’s as rewarding as, say, "Gran Turismo."

    A bit of imbalance here is a bit ironic considering the themes of the game, but it's true. The storyline does help lift things up to the point of being better than your average RPG, but that doesn't mean the game isn't without significant faults.

    The broken online multiplayer is something that SNK really needs to work on. If this is something that won't bother you, feel free to ignore it. SNK still set out to bring the classic feel of the game to use and in that regard they succeed.

    It is offensive, violent, archaic, complicated, bland, and repetitive. If you can appreciate its retro qualities, however, $5 is a good price!

    It's a shame that the ominous atmosphere and touching story aren't backed up with quality gameplay. Lost Planet 3 takes the series in a whole new direction but unfortunately it doesn't head down a unique path.

    The whole MIDI-ish feel to the audio does server to cheapen the greater aural experience.

    Better than most licensed properties, Cure of the Were-Rabbit has plenty of charm, but it's short of variety where it counts, and doesn't quite capture the feel of the humor from the source material.

    Thunder Wolves is not the most polished experience you'll find on the PSN, but there is a surprising amount of fun if you give it a chance. Excellent light fare between bigger gaming meals.

    Cars is good, but it's not great, and that's the problem. The one genre that the PSP has been very, very blessed with thus far is the arcade racer. Between "Burnout Legends", "Ridge Racer" and the amazing "WipEout Pure", there's just no room for good here.

    Don't get me wrong: I loved my time with Asura's Wrath. I want to see the game succeed and get more support. I just wish there was more bang for the buck and that the ending wasn't obviously setting up for a sequel by leaving so many loose ends.

    More focused on action than story progression and deep character development, Brotherhood of Steel comes dangerously close to being called a Fallout game in name only.

    I’m not entirely sure where it happened, but somewhere during the development of the sequel, the magic that had permeated every refractive chunk of ice and rippling pool of water in the first game gave way to tired, monotonous trudges through vaguely different environments explored on endless fetch quests.

    Only slightly above the mean in most respects. It bites off of "MGS" and "Splinter Cell" so heavily in most parts that it’s hard to walk away from the game with a entirely unique sense of what the game was trying to do.

    If you've never played the series on the PSP, by all means, pick this up, but otherwise it might be best to just give it a rental, as you likely will burn through all the game has to offer in about a weekend or so.

    Lead and Gold isn't a terrible game, but it is a ghost town. There are enough thriving games of similar design to be found elsewhere.
    • 63 Metascore

    A step back from the first game, lacking the retro appeal and suffering from what seems to be lazy level design and a paucity of textures. It's still fun to swing around, just not for the half-dozen hours it takes to slog through the whole experience.

    It's Sudoku. Carol Vorderman -- someone you probably don't know -- presents it and gives you little tips. That's it, man. Yes, it's fun, but then Sudoku is fun, so hey, if you need a new fix to get your fix on the road... you're set. If not, well... um.

    Nostalgia can only take you so far as DuckTales: Remastered proves. I appreciate the homage to a NES Classic but games have moved so far beyond this simple structure that it's more frustration than fascination at this point.

    MotoGP 10/11 is certainly not a terrible game, yet it has so little to offer besides its decent career and great racing core that it becomes really difficult to recommend to anyone but the most enthusiastic of MotoGP fans.

    The story isn't really presented well at times, but thanks to numerous Wolfenstein staple elements, the game works.

    Snoopy isn't loaded with depth; you'll likely see everything you need to see the first time around, making it a rather shallow game, but while it lasts, there is, surprisingly, fun for all ages to be found here. Yes, I'm just as shocked as you are.

    I am sure there are people out there that think [Prototype] is one of the best games of the year, but to me it just is not polished enough to deserve that much praise.

    It’s not a masterpiece, but Z-Axis’ BMX combo-fest is a blast and a half.

    Fuse seems like it took the template for a co-op shooter and forgot to take the time to modify that template to give the game a soul. Much like the title of the game, Fuse is generic and easily forgotten.

    Collecting and transforming into new costumes is always great, but the repetition and simplified battles are not justified by the $15 asking price. Once on sale, it's definitely worth getting.

    Jungle Party's presentation is actually surprisingly good.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Great variety in song types, but the same old issue of actually knowing and liking the songs inside and out stands. The game lives up to the Party moniker if used in those situations, but as a single-player experience, it's a bit weak.
