    Bottom-line: This is a game for completionists, leaderboard junkies, and glory hounds, though it should be noted that there are much simpler ways to proclaim one's video game superiority.

    I don't care what your friend tells you, trust me, that awkward, cumbersome, electronic behemoth may look impressive but it will be collecting dust in a few short weeks. It's like having to pilot the space shuttle to make a cup of coffee.

    Other than the three or four hours of play you'll get out of Coraline, there isn't much left to be done.

    Phantom Brave is a game of methodical persistence. There's very little here to reward smart players.

    Another mediocre game in a mediocre series, but is worth the time if you are an ardent, and I mean ardent, fan of RPGs and quite possibly that guy who plays DM during your friend’s Dungeons and Dragons campaign.

    I suggest we change the name of the game to "Crazy Taxi 2: Featuring Sprites That Resemble Characters From The Simpsons."

    It's like gaming through proxy, and I don't like it.

    Mojo would be an absolutely fantastic puzzle game if a few technicalities were tweaked... With more than 100 stages and a four-player mode you could certainly do a lot worse than Mojo.

    I can tell you right now that only those willing to devote a big chunk of their life to this game will reap any significant rewards from it. And by the looks of the few people online I would say that there's not too many gamers willing to devote massive amounts of time to such an experience.

    It seems obvious to me that the videogame version lost some of its excitement in the translation. Whatever the developers added to compensate just doesn't work.

    In an effort to be different from the last couple of games, it trips all over itself trying too hard not to replicate any of the old gameplay elements. The results are unnatural and ultimately un-fun.

    A weak in the knees one button beat-em-up that has absolutely no teeth. The fighting engine is so watered down that only geeking Marvel fanboys will elicit any enjoyment out of spending any time with it.

    Despite all the glitz and glamour, the game feels hollow and void of substance.

    Online play is good as far as lag is concerned but you'll have to have plenty of patience finding games. At the end of each game you're knocked back into the lounge where you have to search for another game.

    A game with a message doesn't have to be boring, but this one doesn't work very hard to break free from the stereotype. Okabu is just a little too generic to be worth your time, which is a shame, considering I would have liked to play a fun game about saving the planet.

    It speaks volumes that when I was taking a break from reviewing RTF, I went back to my Zelda game and found myself visiting the fishing hole and enjoying it far more, even though it's not as complex as Rapala.

    Another problem that I have with the game is that enemies will respawn in empty rooms. As soon as you think you've cleared a room of enemies there will be another round of them mysteriously appearing from the ether.

    It's challenging and there are strategic elements that rival that of Fire Emblem but it fails miserably to capture the essence of the Rings movies. Basically it's a generic turn-based strategy game using the Rings in the same way that kart racers attach to various franchises.

    If I had to pick something I really enjoyed about the game, I'd have to go with the loading screens. I miss the time when games tried to keep the player busy, even in little ways, while they wait for the game to load. So yeah, there's that.

    If you locate the right audience for this one, no doubt they'll enjoy it. Just make sure you never, ever mention the console version or the jig is definitely up. The game is short as most competent gamers will make it through the 6 levels within about 5-6 hours total.

    If you're a fan of YGO then nothing I say will dissuade you from getting this game, and in a way I do feel somewhat jealous that I can't get excited about this game as some kids obviously will.

    It isn't a bad game in and of itself but as a sequel it absolutely sucks.

    Prizefighter lacks the necessary skill set to become the next great champ or even contender for that matter. If I had to compare it to a fighter it would be the 'Hurricane' Peter McNeely of video game boxing. It does everything right to sell the fight, it just can't execute anything resembling skillful boxing once it steps into the ring.

    There are just way too many better shooters available to make this game worth your time and money.

    The crafts in this game are cumbersome to operate. The collision detection system is faulty, as you can't seem to make it into tight situations without hitting something - which is usually nothing.

    I find it very strange that one game is so good and the other one so bad. Perhaps the title of this duo should have been re-titled Jekyll and Hyde. It's like the developers just gave up on Marble Madness halfway through the development process.

    Don't let all the razzle and dazzle fool you, underneath this shiny new-looking game is an old creaky, termite-chewed, wooden platform just waiting to collapse under the weight of all the additions on top of it.

    While the animation isn't bad, what is being animated is old-school graphics which are very out of place on the PS2. It looks a bit like that old game Quix, where you had to draw lines to trap the goblin within 25-per-cent of the screen.

    With elements of RPG, puzzles, combat and platforming there is not one consistently solid genre on which to base this game. Worse than that, the pace of the game is in low gear from start to finish.

    This 3D, electronic version, despite all the new updates including animation, sound, various themes and options, it can't but help to turn into a "bored" game.
