    Mowry herself is charming and capable, and Wendy Raquel Robinson has some fine moments as the mother-manager, but it’s clear that “The Game” is to be played on the surface of these potentially interesting lives.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • David Hinckley

    Where "The Game" botches its "Game" plan, though, is in writing punch lines that are much too broad, and in casting men who are more convincing in their roles and relationships than the women.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Robert Bianco

    It just isn't funny. At all. Ever.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Barry Garron

    Despite the lethargic story and jokes that rarely elicit more than polite chuckles from the studio audience, "Game" is not without potential.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Doug Elfman

    "The Game" is such a predictable drag, it's hard to keep your eyes on it. It's like watching traffic or a catnap or a Bunsen burner.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    "The Game" feels pretty artificial.

    Variety Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    "The Game" lacks the relationships that made "Girlfriends" a qualified UPN hit and the comedy to make it much of anything for The CW.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Jonathan Storm

    The network may have a new name, but it's presenting the same old desperate, low-budget foolishness.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Melanie McFarland

    Unfortunately, it doesn't come close to matching [Girlfriends'] appeal.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Tim Goodman

    "The Game" commits all the sins you can imagine in a poorly conceived sitcom. It goes for laughs and sap, the world's most dangerous and noxious combination. It's also not funny, believable, interesting or... inspired.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Diane Werts

    A groaner from beginning to end.

    Newsday Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    This new CW series cranks out brash jokes that evaporate upon hitting the air, winds them into situations where women submit to their men, and leaves no aftertaste when it's gone. It's on TV, but it's never truly on.

  • Paul Brownfield

    A light-as-a-feather new sitcom.

    A hollow imitation of a sitcom.
