    Simply put this is a bad game. Scratch that, it's horrible. To think that some of the talent working on the Castlevania series (including producer Koji Igarashi) actually had a hand in this isn't just scary, it's successfully put into question how well the next Castlevania may turn out.

    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.

    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.

    Torino's biggest problem is just that it doesn't try very hard. When it does, like during the speed-skating or downhill skiing sections, you get some nice graphics and a solid framerate. It's just that whole gameplay thing is lacking.

    God help the kid that gets this as a present when they should have gotten one of the LEGO Star Wars games instead. Seriously, just avoid this game and pick up one of TT's better efforts.

    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.

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

    A cheap cash-in that not even fans could love, Napoleon Dynamite just doesn't offer anything worthwhile.

    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?

    Level designs that literally force you to try and retry an incredibly difficult section while fighting the controls and camera instantly suck any fun out of what could have been a nice attempt to mix "Prince of Persia" exploration and free-form 360 degree fighting (a la SCEA's "Rise to Honor").

    If only to reinforce that this is not the way to treat a 2D game, don't buy this game. If that means Sony kills off 2D entirely here in the States, it will be a horrible thing, but if this is the kind of game that's going to get through... we'd be better off just remembering the good ol' days with the rose colored glasses of nostalgia.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Dead Space: Ignition competently expands the series' fiction but fails to deliver in any other department.

    Mahjong Tales: Ancient Wisdom is not good.

    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.

    I don't even want to think about the visuals or audio long enough to talk about them. Both are offensively bad, from the Xbox-quality graphics and level detail to the frequent and pointless use of stereotypical comments and ham-fisted injections of "edgy" cussing. Even if the entire game was meant to be taken as satire, it still comes off as shoddily executed. Don't play it. Don't rent it. For the love of all that is good and holy in the world don't buy it.

    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.

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

    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.

    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. Stay away.

    Many niche JRPG fans will find this to be exactly what they're looking for but to the casual gamers out there, steer clear.

    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.

    I like old-school RPGs on the PSP, I really do, but even games released over a decade ago have more going on in terms of gameplay and inherent charm than Mimana Iyar Chronicle.

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

    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.

    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.

    A poor showcase for the hardware and a sloppy attempt to cash in on the pick-up-and-play fun of mini-game collections like Wario Ware, AAA is anything but a top-tier game. Stay away from this one.

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