    Turn off the sound and you'll enjoy yourself a lot more. Whether you rent this game or add it to your collection, you're guaranteed to have a ball with it. Pun intended.

    Serious Sam II is a handful. It may be more action than you bargained for. If you're not interested in the online mode then rent it first but be warned you may not finish it in one weekend.

    It's all presented in a brilliant anime style that rivals any Saturday morning cartoon. If you like Viewtiful Joe there's a good indication you'll like this game though I'm not suggesting that it's similar in gameplay.

    It seems to me that Phantom Dust was never intended to be released as a budget title. The production values are just too high. Don't hesitate to take advantage of this game; some company's loss is your gain.

    Bloodrayne 2 is the perfect game for Halloween. It's a sweet, scary treat but it's over too quickly.

    More of a hit than a miss but don't expect it to revolutionize the industry. It doesn't stray far from the formula that made the first two games popular.

    The animations of the kills are the star of the show. They not only transcend the PS2's graphics but they rival some movies in realism.

    It will take some time to reach a level of Zen with the control system. It takes plenty of mindfulness to reach a state of mindlessness. Once the controls become second nature Iron Phoenix comes to life.

    It will takes weeks to develop your skills but thanks to the great tutorial and easy-to-use interface, it couldn't be easier to get an Indy-education.

    First to Fight is very heavily militarily themed. It's almost too stuffy. This is one serious, no-nonsense game. Personally I like a little nonsense as it tends to make things seem more realistic.

    I was pleasantly surprised at how good Project: Snowblind turned out to be. It shows what you can do with the shooter premise if you have just the right amount of imagination and talented programmers to realize that vision.

    As a recruitement tool first and foremost there was a lot of work put into the simulated gameplay that makes this a game not to be ignored. If you're looking for a realistic military experience this is the closest you're going to get to boot camp without leaving mommy's nest.

    Gamers weaned on games like "Final Fantasy" who recognize that Tolkien's masterpieces are largely responsible for the genre they love and admire, probably won't be too pleased with the dumbing down of their favorite gaming conventions in The Third Age, but may want to experience the battles nonetheless simply due to their commitment to the subject matter.

    Just about everything that we complained about in the last game has been addressed. This is one great platformer.

    Jam packed with solid fighting action. It's a great investment for fans, but those unfamiliar with the old series may not appreciate its relative straightforwardness.

    If you're embarrassed to do so, just go to a different game rental outlet and ask them to put it in a plain brown wrapper. Why be content to be a fool, when you can be a dancing fool?

    Online play has been Battlefield's strongest feature up until now. In this version the single player mode rivals the online mode.

    It's non-violent fun for the entire family. But it's challenging enough to frustrate even the most ardent of hardcore shooting fans, especially in the online tournament modes where you can compete with some of the best in the world.

    Best described as "Resident Evil 4"-Lite. It doesn't have the epic quality of the popular Capcom series but for a tight, solid, horror-survival game you could certainly do a lot worse.

    If you're looking for a fight you came to the right place. If you're looking for something more than just a fight you've also come to the right place. Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks puts the mental fun back in fundamental.

    After you liberate the island and eliminate the dictator, there is simply no other reason to put the disk back in your system. The island looks pretty and there are plenty of attractions to see, but once you spend a little time there, you are ready to leave.

    The best aspect of the game is the two-player co-op mode. It's so much more fun to play this game with another person.

    Regardless of whether I was playing the first or eighth game of the series, I found myself so engrossed by the gameplay that it didn't matter if the graphics were eight or a million bits.

    This is no doubt the funniest strategy game I have ever played. Whether it's the weapons, the worms' language, their actions and emotions when they are about to be hit or their catch phrases, everything is UNIQUE and SPOT ON.

    The control system is responsive and accurate. The graphics still illustrate some spine chilling scenes and disturbing animation of the undead characters. This game is almost guaranteed to give you nightmares.

    A darn good adventure and one that should be taken by every serious gamer. It may not take the place of any "Grand Theft Auto" game but it could certainly hold its own against "Max Payne."

    It's a testament to innovative thinking that the brilliant developers at Avalanche Software are able to find a way to breathe new life into an old premise and a series that most gamers would probably imagine has run its course.

    Exceed is much more difficult than the standard dance games. The difficulty ranking goes from normal to nightmare and all points in between.

    A Matrix game that FINALLY got it right. You're able to pull off all the cool moves and abilities that Neo possesses, including fighting off hundreds of Smiths at once, pole and all. With great graphics and great controls, this title will definitely impress with the first and second play through.

    Overall the production values are fantastic. It's just too bad the gameplay wasn't more sophisticated.
