    What could have been a very neat idea is ruined by a bad camera, buggy gameplay, and totally ridiculous mission objectives.

    X-Men: The Official Game just isn't fun at all.

    Whirlwind over Vietnam offers a gameplay experience that is neither innovative nor executed well.

    With a little more attention to contemporary FPS titles, I think it quite possible that Digital Spray could produce some patches or expansions that could make Instinct a decent budget shooter title.
    • 46 Metascore

    There's a decent story hidden under the mess of missed conversations and seemingly irrelevant puzzles.

    With bothersome controls and repetitive characters, Dragon Ball Z: Raging Blast 2 falls short at a time when the franchise should be at a high point. The series needs some fundamental reworking if it's going to stand up as well as some of its predecessors, and fans, whether they got into the series during the original run or "Dragon Ball Z Kai," certainly deserve better.

    Chicken Little reached for the sky and instead got an acorn thrown at its head. Pass this one up, folks, and maybe consider the console renditions of the license.

    A potentially great game released in what looks, sounds, and plays like the game never left beta stages.

    In general, Made Man: Confessions of the Family Blood is a marginally passable offering, something to play if you've drained every last bit of enjoyment out of Max Payne and absolutely can't find anything else to play.

    With the difficult camera angles, blurry death sequences, bugs and glitches, playing Manhunt 2 really was like doing to the doctor — it'll hurt like hell, but something tells you that you have to do it. I shouldn't think of a game like that.

    I would like to think that I'm a patient person, Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command pushes the limits of doing nothing without any gameplay.

    A Marathon title on XBLA could have been a fantastic way for Halo fans to see their favorite developer's roots, but thanks to bad controls and an illness-inducing interface, the game struggles to even serve as a window into the past.

    Thanks to its ability to maul the movie that it supposedly follows, Beowulf is a poor substitute for the film and an even more frustrating experience on the console, given its clumsy fight mechanics, uninspired enemies and the repetitive button-mashing.

    The gameplay is poorly ported from a console to the PC, which seems like the wrong way to do things.

    Left Brain Right Brain offers no interesting features, a minimal amount of variety, and a premise that develops very minimally.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    The idea itself is solid, but the execution leaves a lot to be desired.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    Sub-par in almost every respect.

    Incredible Hulk is an embarrassment, one of the worst movie-to-game translations to come out in some time — and that's really saying something.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    The co-op platforming can be fun from time to time, but the mediocre level design and extremely easy gameplay result in a title that just isn't fun for more than 10 minutes.

    NPPL Championship Paintball 2009 is a bad game overall. AI issues contribute to the problematic gameplay; controls are serviceable, but the graphics and sound fail to inspire.

    Once you finish the game in about four hours, that's all there is to it. It's a budget experience at full price, and one that I can't suggest anyone pick up.

    Repetitive, bland gameplay, boring yet decent graphics and controls, and abysmal audio make this a title that will have people lining up at the local game hawker to trade it in for something better.

    If Front Office Manager is going to become a serious series, it needs to sort out a lot of major problems in a hurry if it wants to be a gamer's radar as a potential purchase. As it stands, there's little to no reason to even rent this sub-par management title.

    For non-gaming dorks out there looking for some amusement in this title, the sonic aspects of it are where it's at.

    Pocket Racers was made for the holiday rush as a cheap, new game that could be shoveled out to parents, resulting in sad kids who have just become victims of the shovelware industry yet again.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 46 Critic Score
    There's very little overall polish to the title, and there's nothing particularly inspired or compelling about it, either.

    If it weren't for the M-rated content, X-Blades could have been easily recommended to kids for its accessible action and anime presentation, which is a shame because the adult crowd is going to be left disappointed with this game, despite its sex appeal.
