    A shoddy sequel that does nothing to honor the original, Midway’s second Spy Hunter remake should’ve been handled by Paradigm, or at least another developer that was willing to do the series justice.

    Utterly mediorce in every way, this is a game that does absolutely nothing to debunk the claim that licensed games are rushed, shallow pieces of crap.

    As a reminder of what came before Armored Core 3 Portable is effective. As an actual game though, it's far less so. We've simply moved on, leaving this a relic of the past that lacks the hooks it once had. Time for AC4 Portable.

    Dragoneer's Aria is simply average in almost every way, there's no getting around it. Parts of the storyline can be entertaining, but only as much as the localization gave the characters a little pop. Otherwise, it's a purely paint-by-numbers game.

    ArcaniA has an expansive world to explore. Unfortunately there's almost nothing of interest to find there and you'll likely leave unsatisfied.

    At this point an "enhanced" edition (or editions) of a Ninja Gaiden release are obligatory, but none of the enhancements make this game any more viable as an actual game to enjoy playing. Let's hope the series can bounce back one day.

    Unless you are in the icy grasp of nostalgia, you will be doing yourself a service if you just ignore the fact this ever got released and wait for Power Stone 2 to get ported over to start your Dreamcast collection. It just is not fun.

    It's a blah fighter with only a passing reference to most of the InuYasha source material. There's no reason to experience this game if you're a fan of the show, and far better fighters out there if you're a fan of the genre.

    While it might seem like this is a better game than the first, it's really just as broken. It's better programmed to be sure, but the insanely deep gameplay is still just as muddled behind clunky menus and brain-dead battles.

    It's an average maiden voyage for the series on the PlayStation Move. When taken together as a whole package, however, the bad outweighs the good. It can be salvaged with a friend, but you have to cherry pick what to play to enjoy this title.

    With only the puzzles of Challenge Mode and the Party Mode games to save it, SMBA would have been better off as just another puzzle game -- except it's not nearly as good as the puzzle games.

    Ultimately, it would be best for Sony to probably ditch the PS2 version and concentrate on making the actual basketball game solid for the PSP and PS3 versions next year.
    • 56 Metascore

    Entirely average in all but the cutscenes (and even those are a little too plentiful for my tastes), Teen Titans just doesn't feel like the kind of game I know A2M can make, and it ends up feeling like salt in the wounds of fans of the cancelled show.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Slightly better controls, slightly worse framerate and equally blah adventure and mildly distracting party games leave this just as middle-of-the-road as the PS2 version. But hey, at least it's the same thing only portable, right?

    Atelier Iris 3's biggest problem is just that it doesn't have any glaring mistakes. Instead, the game is so painfully mediocre that it's a struggle to keep going, not because you're hating the game, but because you're just plain bored.

    Cross Edge, amazingly, pulled content from several outstanding games and managed to end up with a mediocre experience in return.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Unfortunately, more often it's a frustrating experience that often muddies what would have been an atmospheric, wildly imaginative peek into the darker side of misguided children.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Brain-dead enemy AI, a story that does nothing to recall some of the better arcs from the comics -- especially around this, perhaps the most powerful storyline the comics ever saw, and an experience that isn't befitting of the development team all add up to something that's wholly underwhelming and reeks of missed potential.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Codemasters would be best served choosing to make their games either realistic or fun, and stop trying to find a balance between the two. Right now we are left with a game that alternates between frustrating and boring, but one that is never enjoyable.

    This is not the Dynasty Warriors that you've played on consoles. It's better than the first PSP game, no doubt, but it still has a long way to go before it feels at home on Sony's little wonderportable.
    • 70 Metascore

    A solid foundation and pretty walls aren't of much use if there's nothing inside to actually make the place habitable. That's precisely what Hot Shots Tennis is; pretty from the outside, solid, but without anything on the inside. Shame, really.

    MotoGP 07 just plain looks limp next to the better games.
    • 60 Metascore

    Heatseeker isn't a horrible game, it's just very, very average, and when there are games out there that do everything this one does better, there's really little reason to check it out. If you're absolutely plane crazy it's a rental, but that's it.
    • 59 Metascore

    A novel idea that failed in executing the stuff surrounding the running and jumping and shooting, Coded Arms could have been a great, immersive cyberpunk tale, but instead it ends up skimming the surface of what could be a very cool world.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It's a squad-based shooter/puzzler without the squad. As such, it's only half a game, and that half isn't very good.
    • 68 Metascore

    If you absolutely, positively must have your F1 and can't get it anywhere else, F1 2009 is worth a peek. For everyone else, though, there's simply not enough here to really make a lasting impression.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It's hard to decide what's more offensive, the massive changes made to the core gameplay that kept this series different or the complete lack of options outside of the useless online play. Either way, fans of and newcomers to the series both lose.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Purely average, sadly, despite some slightly promising ideas. Accordingly, it gets an average score.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    This is a definite pass, even for those casual game junkies out there.

    Rush N' Attack: Ex-Patriot is proof that some game franchises are best left forgotten in a dusty warehouse somewhere. If developers insist on reviving these games, they need to at least do something innovative. Keep trying, Konami.
