    I don’t imagine myself as a gaming whiz by any stretch, but I’m good enough to stay in the running most of the time, and when I started to crack the 20 retries, then 30… then 40… then 50… I stopped having fun and started hating the experience I was being subjected to.

    Daytona USA was the pinnacle of arcade racers in the early 90's. Translated into today it sadly doesn't hold much of its appeal, especially without a sweet cockpit and steering wheel setup. Leave this one parked on pit road.

    Here's a dumb idea: rushing an expansion by regurgitating nearly all of the original game and delivering minimal compelling content. Here's a dumber one: charing $10 more than normal so unsuspecting consumers will pad your fiscal third quarter.

    The PS2 version of Project 8 is a joke. Online was removed -- let me say that again: online is missing.

    Thanks to its disastrous mess of a user interface, DCUO is unplayable for anyone lacking superheroic patience. SOE, SCE and DC Comics have colluded in an attempt to foist a dreadful and amateurish product onto comic book and MMO enthusiasts.

    Do not buy this game. Period. Your money is better spent on The Two Thrones, trust us.

    A genuinely good satire would be a joy to play and a sign that the medium is maturing further. At the moment, however, all we have is crude parody.

    Wonky controls, a lackluster presentation and generally confusing core gameplay mechanics are just a few of Wakeboarding HD's many issues.

    ModNation Racers: Road Trip has a ton of content, but quantity doesn't beget quality. Obviously rushed out the door for launch, it captures little of what made the console release so charming. Steer clear, there are far better racers on the market.

    Fracture is disappointing, because it is immediately apparent that a lot of good ideas went into it. Unfortunately, the experience of playing it is generally not fun.

    It made an impression all right, but it left such a sour taste in my mouth that I never want to slip the disc into my PS3 again.

    You may be a glutton for punishment, and for that you may have a need for a quick rental, but even with the Tekken characters as unlockables, this is not a fighter worthy of the Namco name.

    Though embracing the Dynasty Warriors style of gameplay could have yielded something with a lot of depth, Ultimate Ninja Impact instead seeks out the path of least complexity and falls well short of telling a compelling Naruto tale.

    It's hard to know what to be more pissed about -- that this lackluster port was brought over in the first place or that it will still probably sell due to the sheer number of PS2s out there. Don't be one of those people that gets suckered, though, please?

    Spider-Man: Edge of Time is a sloppy game that feels rushed - and with the short amount of time between it and its predecessor, Shattered Dimensions, that's not very surprising. Let's hope Spidey's next outing is better.

    I debated not even mentioning that the game has a nicely implemented two-player mode (if you're flying solo, you can switch between characters with a shoulder button press) because I didn't want a parent thinking, "oh, hey, I can play this game with my kid." No, no you can't, and nobody should be forced to even try.

    At least it's pretty to look at. I went in with low expectations and this game somehow tripped and fell over the bar before crashing and burning in an explosion of terrible. I don't know who thought this was fun but the DBZ cast deserves a lot better.

    There are some rare moments where things are fun, but uninspired boss fights, repetitive corridor crawls and obvious puzzles (water = time to take a trip to Deviland) rob this game of any of the fun the source material could have provided.

    Avoid this game like the plague. There's just no reason to even get into the changes that were made because they all deteriorate into needless tedium. Go buy a copy of "MR4" instead; it's infinitely more fun.

    It's crap. Don't buy it, since you'll probably never find someone else who has the game to enjoy the multiplayer, and there's literally no reason to suffer through the single-player at all. The visuals are blah, the voice acting merely passable (much like the PS2 game), and the controls are weak sauce. Trust me, you want to pass on this one.

    Unfinished, unpolished, and broken. If not for the online co-op this would be a complete dud. They put in a lot of features that are great in theory but the execution leaves a lot to be desired. Have I mentioned that I can't stand the main characters?

    A game that could've been so much more has turned into a pile of... well, crap.

    One can feel the touch of the void on every aspect, the faint droning echo of sick, tuneless piping for an inscrutable and alien corporate master. The end product serves no one.

    Mad Moxxi's Underdome is far from a riot: it's a dreadful slog

    The very definitely of wasted potential, Unbound Saga is quite simply a beat-'em-up where it's not fun to beat them up.
    • 56 Metascore

    Quite simply a bad game. Period. There’s just not enough variety in the combat to make the action entertaining, and poorly designed jumping puzzles, sloppy combat and unresponsive controls all add up to a game that won’t even keep Spawn fans entertained for more than a few seconds.

    There's just no excuse for this. When the previous SpongeBob games have bucked the trend of crappy licensed games as well as they have, to see things fall this far is just that much more depressing.

    Reality Fighters is an unmitigated disaster. It begins with a questionable concept and meets a fiery, disastrous end at the hands of poorly implemented AR and botched fighting mechanics. If you are looking for proof that AR is the future, look on.

    Ranging from moments that made me want to chuck the system out the window because of crushing boredom or infuriating rage, no part of this game demonstrates something that hasn't already been trounced by a better offering somewhere else.
    • 54 Metascore

    An abomination of a product that wasn't really all that solid to begin with. When a game that depends on a lock-on system and camera to deliver compelling action can't even get that right, it's just not worth playing, and Reckoning is the very definition of wasted money. Stay far, far away.
