    It would’ve been nice to have a create-a-team feature, or even a create-a-character feature, but maybe we’ll see those the next time around.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’d choose real-time play over card battles any day, but that doesn’t change the fact that Acid is a unique, strategic approach to the Metal Gear universe, with enough depth to keep you coming back for more.

    If you consider yourself well versed in the lingo and culture of all things Gundam, then the "complex" controls and familiar plot elements will bring a huge smile to your face.

    Definitely a niche purchase rather than a must buy, but those that dig this stuff will find that EyeToy: Groove has got a good beat, and you can dance to it, as the kids always said on American Bandstand.

    Vastly superior to nearly every single movie-based video game I’ve personally played throughout the entire year. That being said, the game still doesn’t have what it takes to compete with the big boys of the action/platform genre.

    If you're looking for the hottest new RPG with the flashiest graphics and some newfangled game mechanics, you'll probably be a bit disappointed. But if you're into the anime and want something that's guaranteed to have you playing well into the wee hours, this game is going to be smiling and waving at you the next time you're at your favorite game shop.

    When compared to other movie inspired video games, King Kong comes out on top. However, when comparing it to other first person shooter titles (which the majority of the gameplay falls under), it’s merely average at best.

    Many of you will undoubtedly find Dead to Rights II too unoriginal and repetitive to give a chance, but from my perspective this game is a great rental experience worth checking out on a rainy weekend.

    Though always attempting to up the ante on their long time rival, this year’s FIFA actually seems more of a step back when compared to the 2005 iteration.

    The game could just have easily been another GBA game due to its shortage of innovative uses of the DS technology, however no matter what the handheld home there’s plenty of beat’em-up fun for Ninja Turtle nuts to enjoy, and a healthy kick in the pants in terms of difficulty to boot.

    The game holds about 40-60 hours just playing the single player campaign, and if Capcom could (or even would) go through and solidfy the gameplay elements and features they’ve instilled, Monster Hunter could really be a killer franchise. Until then, rent it first.

    The split screen action is worth keeping the game around for a rainy day, and the time attacks kept me addicted for hours.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    The game spends too much time focusing on characters other than Red and wildly veers off into too many directions at once, an obvious sign of this game’s strenuous development cycle.

    One Piece's only serious downfall is its limited replay value. Completing the game lasts a good 5-10 hours depending on how many deaths and retries it takes to complete the game's tough boss fights, but once the game is over there isn't much of anything to go back to.

    You'll notice such things removed from the game as the ability to create a child Sim, while new things like a partially locked catalogue and cooperative play were added.

    Unmasked surely won't blow anyone away, however THQ and developer A2M have produced a fun and accessible title here that uses its license to near flawless effects, and they deserve a lot of credit.

    The thought of pulling a combo across an entire city with no load times is very appealing, but unless you have perfect balance, nimble fingers, and patience, you probably won't pull it off.

    Good game + bad players = a wee bit too much stress for folks like me, but perhaps we'll see what happens with the game again in a few months.

    There’s just a certain feeling that a Gundam game has that’s part wistful romanticism and part kick ass action, and what you get with Battle Assault 3 Featuring Gundam SEED manages to convey both equally.

    If you’re the type of person that has great ideas for new RPG stories and have been looking for that outlet to get your ideas into an interactive media, then this game would be perfect for you.

    Not only will you curse, but as the game progresses, you’ll get exceedingly violent towards your controller. Bosses are especially tough, often requiring the player to dash in for a quick hit, then dash out for an even quicker retreat.

    A port of the latest console game down to the PSP, but for some reason the basic style of the gameplay just works better on this portable medium.

    The graphics are definitely of SCEE’s highest caliber, but the unbalanced gameplay drags on forever before actually feeling like you accomplished something.
