    If you've already been-there-done-that, move along - there's nothing to see here. But if you must have Pokemon then just get one of these games. Don't fall prey to Nintendo's cheesy marketing scheme.

    Aside from those tree huggers that cling to "classics," the average gamer of today would have little use for such long, drawn out RPGs that just simply can't compete with today's RPGs. There's a reason the RPGs are really popular now and that's because they've evolved from what they were.

    I don't care how good the gameplay is - it's been done to death. It's like releasing the game of checkers over and over with different colored game pieces.

    Not only is the AI predictable, but the storyline is so linear that it's just an excuse to connect one mission to the next.

    An uninspired action adventure game that rehashes the same old elements that we've seen throughout the series. There is little combat and what is offered is limited by a few moves and combos which are all practically divulged at the outset.

    The brawling gets old fast and the game's design isn't conducive to using guns, making for some boring, linear gameplay, The lackluster narrative doesn't help.

    In terms of value, this is one of the worst fighting game re-releases yet.

    FlatOut has all the makings of a great budget games, except that it's not great and that it's not budget priced.

    You've probably played this game before. If you haven't, you probably don't want to, and this isn't the best version to start on. It doesn't add enough for old fans or do enough to reel in new players.

    Quick exhibition matches, both locally and online, as well as a few memorable minigames are enough for a quick fix. The odd career mode, however, is more frustrating than fun.

    While "The Sims" can get deep, The Urbz: Sims in the City is a very light version of the original. This game is designed for girls that haven't yet grown out of the Barbie phase. The Urbz is the shallowest version of The Sims yet.

    A boring Breakout/Arkanoid rip-off in a long line of boring Breakout/Arkanoid rip-offs.

    All around there's just too much repetition in this game. It's fun for half-an-hour tops and that's it.

    In my opinion it's just a little too little, too late.

    This game actually has less content than the original, and with no other improvements, it's hard to recommend this even at a $30 price point.

    A lesson in good intentions gone awry. Nearly all of its novel ideas misfire. What's so interesting about Inferno is the mentality that a patch was all that was needed to make a better game. The original was defined by a lackluster story, awkward controls, and merely okay gameplay – that's not a formula that needs a few tweaks, it's one that should be scrapped entirely.

    All commands are delayed by a second or two because of the stock animation that plays out. I found myself furiously tapping the controller as if the problem was a defective button that just wouldn't listen.

    With battling monsters and cards to collect this is really just another Pokemon game in disguise and not a very good disguise at that. Come on Nintendo, your slip is showing.

    Even though the game was intriguing from a documentary point of view, my interest began to wane a few hours into it.

    There are a decent number of workouts to choose from, and the workout programs are a nice touch, but you'll burn more calories struggling with the controls than you will actually playing the game.

    If the fate of most badly designed games is to suffer an excruciatingly slow end by falling on their own swords, Mytran Wars is so awful it doesn't have a sword with which to end it all, and it is instead forced to starve to death.

    It may be a great GBA game but it should have been completely overhauled for the PSP, to the extent of creating another sequel in the series. What you're getting here is a game where the expiry date was written over with, "Coming Soon to the PSP."

    The game gets very old, very fast, especially in the four-player mode.

    The PSP version includes a four-player multiplayer mode that lets you compete against other players. It's a decent addition, but the novelty is short-lived.

    This new difficulty didn't make the game any better, it just made it more difficult. It's like having to make friends with an asinine neighbor just because you feel obligated to be nice.

    The game was just that painfully disappointing. It's its own fault, though. It was touted by its team as a spiritual successor to Guardian Heroes, one of the best Saturn games of all time and a great side-scrolling beat 'em up in any context. The comparison, though, only holds up at the shallowest level of the surface, falling apart as soon as one scratches that away.

    Like a mini-game disguised as a real game. It's very generic in terms of gameplay and graphics and despite the poor inclusion of the touch screen controls and dual screen, the handheld novelty of the game doesn't add any "wow" factor either.
