    Masters of the Universe He-Man: Defender of Grayskull

    Cutting to the chase, He-Man is a pretty awful game that doesn't capture the spirit of the cartoon, nor does it do anything fresh to move the genre forward. Buy little Johnny the cartoon DVD instead Back in the early-to-mid 1980's, serial cartoons (i.e. not the 5-minute long... more

    We don't expect movie licensed games to achieve greatness, but we do expect them to at least offer some enjoyment. Robots is one of the poorer efforts we have played in quite some time. We recently reviewed the videogame version of the Spongebob Squarepants... more

    Viewtiful Joe: Red Hot Rumble

    A foray into the beat 'em up genre isn't exactly straying too far from Joe's roots, but the game hasn't been pulled off with the same high level of polish that the other Joe titles exude. Viewtiful Joe burst onto the gaming scene a few years back with a fresh look... more

    Madagascar should please kids who want a simple game featuring the characters they have seen at the cinema. Very few seasoned gamers will get much out of it, but that isn't really the point of it. Kid friendly movie tie-ins are big business and there was no chance that the... more
