    It isn’t the deepest game in existence, nor is it the most complex, but when it comes to taking full advantage of what the DS has to offer, not many games do it better than Pac-Pix.

    Strangely enough, there is no continuity between the various stages... This method of play makes Four Swords seem like more of a compilation of adventures than a conventional Zelda game.

    Think of the short but sweet expansion as a warm-up for the hours you'll spend immersed in the deeper levels of Hell found in the original two games and your wallet should magically materialize as soon as you walk into your nearest game shop.

    While not the super-strategic romp some of you were expecting, Spartan: Total Warrior delivers the goods if you’re looking for a solid chunk of challenging action from start to finish.

    If you are strictly searching for a great solo FPS with stunning production values aimed at providing a cinematic, story-driven experience, then Pariah is a game you simply can’t miss.

    A solid bit of destruction derby/road racing hybrid madness that’s well worth picking up. Bugbear has the tools and talent to make the next game even better and I’ll definitely be along for that ride.

    A very cool game indeed. Stacked up against other movie-based games, it can hold its own with the best of them an it actually makes me more interested in the upcoming film (free ticket or not).

    If Digital Illusions could’ve ironed out some balancing issues and worked on the physics for the vehicles a little more, as well as denied the assault class a little bit of their overwhelming power, Special Forces would’ve probably been the best expansion pack to ever come straight out of a box without a patch or anything.

    As you're playing through the game, you'll clearly see that the developers have created one of those memorable virtual worlds where you can spend many hours exploring each and every crevice as you try to solve all the riddles Arx has to offer.

    The game is easy to pick up and play, the sound and graphics are spectacular, and the amount of content jammed onto this DVD is just mind-boggling.

    Whatever else is coming, you'd best believe I'll be there with bells on... and you should as well.

    Overall, what makes PQ: Practical Intelligence Quotient work so well is that it’s a smart game that doesn’t pretend to be anything else.

    After playing through it twice from start to the insanely rough final level, I truly had more pure fun with Raze's Hell's single player game than I did with "Halo 2" or "Doom 3."

    Once you deal with the precise setup requirements, there’s a great game here, and although it’s not an incredibly deep gameplay experience, the overall fun factor is off the charts.

    The car handling is rather touchy and the car physics are a bit too floaty and unbalanced, and therefore turning and jumping on the game’s narrow tracks at high speeds, especially the later, more difficult ones, can get too challenging and frustrating for its own good.

    NFSU2 feels like a much fuller game than its predecessor most of the time, but there is still that feeling in the back of my head saying that the free-roaming world is nothing more than an interactive menu interface.

    The gameplay is very solid and I was able to easily measure my pitch regardless of whether I was using one of my headsets, or the available stand alone microphone.

    In taking the inventive foundation left from Feel the Magic and building on it with more modes and mini-games, The Rub Rabbits is by far a much better all-around game even though the core content may not seem as overwhelmingly unique as it once did roughly a year and a half ago.

    It’s great to see a horror-themed game that goes more for the cerebral end of the spectrum rather than straight the jugular, but there are a few moments where you might not want to step into a darkened area or find out what’s happened to a character you’ve befriended.

    "Sonic CD" and both "Vectorman" games alone make paying the $30 price an extremely easy decision. With those three brilliant titles in hand, the remaining eight can basically be treated as bonus additions to mess around with.

    Turns out many of the programmers and artists were fans of the series, and they not only did a remarkable job of bringing the characters to life, they also kick-started a potentially huge game franchise, as future titles will no doubt be even better.

    The three wildly different takes on the main story should take around 15 or so hours to complete (including the cut scenes) and the ton of music tracks, weapons and items make for quite a bit of collecting.
