    Duke Nukem Forever should have been released as an XBLA or PSN game for around 1600 - 2400 points which then you could have overlooked the fact that it really cannot compete with the big boys. There is fun to be had here if you're a Duke fan, but whether it's worth the price of entry is debatable and whether it was worth the 14 year wait is something for the history books to document.

    Dungeons & Dragons: Daggerdale is a game that means to serve the fans, but is a let down in so many areas. With the stellar Torchlight hitting the marketplace as well, the only thing Daggerdale has on it is cooperative gameplay, and it even does that poorly. Only the most hardcore D&D fans should venture forth, everyone else should cast a haste spell and run away...quickly.

    Destined to prematurely hit the bargain bucket of game stores worldwide, Thor fails miserably in its bid to reignite the action and excitement that this summers blockbuster superhero smash brought to the big screens in waves. Predictably as a videogame movie adaptation, Thor fails epically. Interestingly enough though, as a cure for long-term insomnia, it can't be highly enough recommended.

    As a concept, Yoostar 2 is amazing. As a game, it fails miserably.

    The gameplay is rudimentary and doesn't provide any sort of challenge to an audience who wants more bang for their buck. With last generation inspired graphics and music that drives you crazy with any type of extended play, 800 Microsoft Points feels awfully steep.

    This is one of Harry's adventures that may be worth dodging altogether, at least in gaming form. If the Kinect support is of interest, then certainly a rental is best advised, ultimately though the story is worth a single play through and sets itself up accordingly for Part 2 of the game.

    That magic that those previously mentioned franchises is no doubt a little lost within Marvel Super Hero Squad, in what becomes quite a delight in the LEGO games, can result in some painful and uninspiring play for the older gamer here, as the humour and universe is just not on par with the previously mentioned franchises when combined with blocks of LEGO.

    What you're left with is a title which frustrates far more than it excites and therefore can only be recommended to the desperate and the forgiving.

    Entertaining perhaps for Mum's and younger girls, as you often get rewarded and confidence boosting comments even for not correctly mirroring the dancer/trainer. The rest though will ultimately find Zumba Fitness a rather uninspiring and contradicting experience.

    Dead Space Ignition is a great idea, an optional introduction to a top tier game available as downloadable content. Imagine the opportunities this kind of product could have offered. Instead this game is equal parts frustrating and boring.

    Sonic Adventure isn't worth 800 points, and it absolutely isn't worth 1200 to get the additional content. For 1200 points, you can instead get the entire original Sonic the Hedgehog trilogy, and trust me when I tell you, it's a much better use of your money.

    Even though I love SNK, especially Metal Slug, this just doesn't cut it. At 800 Microsoft points, KOF Sky Stage is about 400 points overpriced for a game that belongs on a cell phone, but only on the cell phone of the most die-hard King of Fighters fan who doesn't have a better option for a quality shooter like R-Type Dimensions.

    Naughty Bear isn't a bad game per se, and features some neat ideas, but is ultimately lacking in vision and variety.
    • 61 Metascore

    The bottom line is, 1200 points is just too steep a price to pay for a flawed, frustrating, unbalanced and vastly dated shooter.

    Sadly, Iron Man 2 is easily one of the most disappointing games of 2010 thus far, no doubt though there will be something else down the line that will reluctantly take this throne.

    A game for Prison Break fans to play through on a wet and soggy weekend perhaps? Though you'd probably have more entertainment in a real prison cell, or at least about the same.

    It seems like a fairly cheap move delivering what now comes across as an incomplete experience without purchasing this download content, and seeing as this is being listed with a $4.00/£3.20 buying price, it isn't exactly cheap to experience it.

    Leo's quest to find out what happened to him should have been more about a journey why gamers won't pay 800 Microsoft Points to play Death by Cube. The story, graphics ,and sound are mediocre at best and not something Square Enix fans would expect from such a distinguished company.

    There has been an internal struggle here to find any pinnacle highlights and potential attractions that other players may find interest in; in the end I have managed to narrow the list down to having a decent capacity of players for multiplayer and an intriguing idea for using satellite imagery. It’s just a shame that they were both wasted on such a inadequately produced and simply frustrating experience of a game.

    While Qix++ offers some new twists on an old classic it falls short of what the standard is for a remake. The game play is fun, but it is hard to ignore the generic inspired graphics, monotonous techno, and lack of content. The game costs 800 Microsoft points, so unless you enjoy feeling slighted your points are better off spent elsewhere.

    There's a reason why Bethesda have kept quiet with this game and quite frankly it's because it's under par.

    RIDE could've been a great game with a broken controller and it still would've been tough to justify. Instead, its a lacklustre game, full of sloppy cuts and rehashed elements. Then on top of all that bad design, it fails to deliver on its only virtue.

    Raven Squad sounded great on paper, and in many regards you could have forgiven poor graphics and dodgy sound if there was some flair and fun to be had with the gameplay. Sadly there is not.

    All of the parties responsible for this deserve to be called into question, and all gamers should question whether or not this subpar and frankly embarrassing title justifies further purchases from any of the three companies involved.

    I find it hard for myself, and anyone else for that matter, to forgive the scroll list of technical, chorographical, and design issues that are presented with this game.

    Terminator Salvation copies tried and trusted formulas that work in other games, and regurgitates the ideas into something so basic and uneventful that the homage paid to the games it copies is totally lost.

    I initially tried to justify the cost of the content based on all content included, and while for those who are still addicted to the row, these newly mentioned toys in the sandbox will be greatly welcomed. For the rest of us though, the new, incredibly-short story arc, ultimately acts as a big tease and unless you're addicted to Saints 2's multiplayer offerings, you will probably feel robbed of your 800MSP by the corrupt government that is the Ultor Corporation.

    Eat lead has its humor going for it, and perhaps is the only reason the game should be played.

    Horror and shooter fans alike may find some cheap thrills within Blood Trails, but ultimately the majority of the game is quite simply a very unsatisfying experience.
