    Worthy of the R6 series, solid single-player and multiplayer, good visuals and sound.

    In spite of its technical and audio-visual flaws, RoboForge is a true hit. Thinking up and tweaking your robots offers a lot of challenge, replay value, and entertainment.

    The work that has gone into balancing each class clearly shows when playing on each side. Graphically the game looks good enough for the fast-paced matches, though it might not justify the steep hardware requirements.

    I really enjoyed the moody ambiance, in addition to the addictive gameplay mechanics, which, you'll have to admit is more important than pompous, fancy graphics...My biggest regret is that this didn't turn out to be a longer game, with more characters and a more intricate plot.

    Spore is an impressive and ambitious mix of game genres. Perhaps at some point, the developers saw it as overambitious, so it's obvious they started losing perspective a bit.

    Voice overs are (thankfully) done by actors who sound like they give a damn. Music is well done and used sparingly as environmental clues when some pivotal plot point is about to occur or to punctuate dramatic moments like the start of a boss battle.

    Single-player missions are dynamic and exciting, and the multiplayer is excellent, especially when you're playing the co-op.

    The gameplay is addictive, leaving plenty of room for experimenting with tons of cool moves and fighting styles.

    The improvements to the interface, speed, etc. make this a superior game to the original without adding significant difficulties (which it already contained in spades). It doesn't make the game easier to learn, but if it's your cup of tea, consider this a bigger, nicer looking cup.

    If you've already played Bully on the PS2, it's safe to say you'll find all the new elements a rather cool addition to the game.
    • 85 Metascore

    An extremely addictive strategy game that, honestly, could've blossomed if extra work was poured into the single-player component.

    All things considered, the first-rate production values, challenging missions and compelling atmosphere should keep you hooked (though for a brief period). The most obvious problem with the main campaign is that it's too darn short, hardly worth the game's retail price.

    Using the vehicles mods and power-ups strategically, makes every victory all the more rewarding. All racing fans should really give this one a go.

    It reminded me a lot of Lost Vikings, which is nice.

    Again, I say this as someone who's been playing the Colin McRae games ever since the first one came out; DiRT 2 is still a great racing game. While it doesn't deliver the kind of comprehensive single-player like in earlier CMR titles, it certainly stands on its own and adds many welcomed elements to the license (hence the higher mark).

    Do yourself a favor and check out this title on the PC and not on the Xbox 360.

    Enslaved is a decent start of a new game franchise and is an important step for the development team to see if they can reach new heights with a potential sequel (which I hear is already starting to shape).

    Finally, I should just add that this game features sexy looking strippers in tight thongs! And you get to play one! I mean, what more can you ask for really?

    Very playable and is sure to get your attention. However, the relatively small number of mission, and the occasionally dull atmosphere may cause that attention to become short-lived…

    Even though it resembles old Galaga, it doesn't have a chance against modern action games.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A very good 3rd person sneaker filled with action, suspense, and with enough missions to hold you attention for several days.

    The thing that makes Trainz so special is its visual engine.

    This expansion pack has nothing drastically new to offer, but instead, it makes up for all the flaws of the original and expands it, giving it new qualities and an increased replay value.

    A becoming and fun game. It can irritate you when trying to solve the same level 20-30 times in a row, but the funny little sheep are always there to give you a good laugh and make you think harder about saving that flock.

    If you can get past the shoddy camera controls and precision jumping techniques, you'll be rewarded with a game that makes you feel that a man really can walk on walls.

    Sure it lacks more content, but what they have in there is well worth their $20 bucks, if for nothing else than for the sheer fun of playing the new and brilliantly designed maps.

    There's plenty of strategy and sheer fun to be found in Praetorians. In fact, I am inclined to call this game the most strategy-minded strategy game I've ever played.

    • 80 Critic Score
    Beautiful locations, excellent gameplay, and, basically quite a good RPG.

    The fact that EA Sports hasn't adequately dealt with the nagging AI glitches is not nearly enough to seriously diminish the overall impression and the unmatched atmosphere of the series that has been its trademark throughout the years.

    Fans of these simulations will fully enjoy this game, but the rest of the gamers will probably do best if they stick to games with a couple of dozens commands less.
