    Roogoo Attack! fixes a number of problems from the Wii version, but the core game just is not compelling enough to really warrant a purchase. The puzzle genre is well represented on the Nintendo DS, and a title this basic simply belongs on the DSi shop, and not taking up space at retail in in your DS game slot.

    Need For Speed Undercover on the Wii is unexciting and full to the rim with bugs and lazy programming. After looking at the box art, a player would expect a thrill packed, high-speed buzz. Instead, they are met with a flawed game with little to prove that it is an adrenaline-pumping title. It is both a waste of time and money to play this game.

    With a tired and clichéd premise, Dinosaur King makes a good use of what could be done. Lots of DS features are used, and the graphics are strong, but it’s just too similar to Pokémon but with too few of the features to capture older gamers attention. Younger gamers will enjoy this title a lot, especially those who follow the series.

    Mario Super Sluggers attempts to bring the over-the-top fun of Mario Kart to the game of baseball, but instead brings chaos and confusion. The control schemes are broken and the roster is mostly lame. In the end, Mario Super Sluggers does more to damage the reputation of the Wii Remote then promote its functionality.

    Sadly, the game only has five short “chapters”, making it easily play-able in less then an afternoon sitting. The only replay value is in trying to master each case on hard mode. So unless you’re planning on becoming a vet, or you want an interactive book to teach you more about animal medicine, I’d steer clear of this one.

    The Prince of Persia: The Fallen King is not a terrible game, but it is a very bland and mediocre 2D platformer. The touch screen controls add little to nothing to the genre and looking beyond the control scheme, you will find an incredibly boring game. The presentation values are top notch, but they feel a tad wasted on a game that could have been a lot more.

    Interesting motion controls can not save this action title from its poor graphics and presentation to its even worse gameplay. A total disappointment from a development team that is capable of so much more.

    There are plenty of great ideas to be found, though not a whole lot of polish or execution.

    The poor camera work and awkward controls work against the player, leaving them with a frustrating experience few will have the patience to put up with.

    "Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles" enters a crowded genre on the Wii, a genre that has been done much better then what is presented here. Nice visuals and a stunning soundtrack can't save the huge design flaws present throughout the title, flaws that only serve to impair the gameplay and frustrate the player.

    Difficult to navigate maps, poor collision detection, and boorish level design leads this to be a game to pass on in the end.

    Even at a lower price, Brave is not worth the effort of playing.

    I Spy Fun House is a simple kids game with nothing to it. The game is presented blandly without much style, music, or fun.

    The start of this promising franchise was so good that this game pales in comparison. It’s not the worst movie to game tie-in in recent years -- The Golden Compass has to take that spot -- but it’s certainly not far off.

    Sub-par gameplay with almost unbearable controls. Boring, uninspired content, from missions, to visuals, to the audio work. Not even hardcore fans of the show should spend more money than a rental on this sucker.

    NeoPets Puzzle Adventure is a game that appears to be meant for younger audiences, but thanks to a difficult learning curve and challenging AI, it's going to test even the most dedicated players.

    Roogoo: Twisted Towers is a puzzle game that is functionally broken. The camera and control layout all conspire to work against you in what would otherwise be an insultingly simple concept. It takes a boring concept and manages to make it annoying. You will have more fun playing with your marsh mellows in a bowl of Lucky Charms then you will with this game.

    George of the Jungle may be aimed at young children, and their requirements may be different from that of a videogame reviewer, but this is just nothing more than sloppy.

    I honestly can’t come up with anything truly positive to say about this game. Stay away from it. You’ll just end up being frustrated with the controls and the camera and walk away disappointed like I did. If you are looking for a classic reboot done right, try "Contra Rebirth" or "Mega Man 9" instead.

    No matter what kind of gamer you call yourself, there's virtually no reason to buy or even play this game.
