    MAG
    The bottom-line is that MAG is a game that requires a pretty serious time-commitment in order to enjoy. You won't get involved with the Shadow War until you've been playing for a while, and most of the individual leveling seems to be designed with hardcore players in mind, possibly taking hundreds of hours to fully level-up.

    It almost seems as if those virtual barriers we often find in video games have disappeared in this game, as if magic had taken over and made this game endless.

    LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues is a fun little entry into the series. The mechanics are more polished than the first game, and LEGO-game fans will likely find the core gameplay to be as satisfying as ever.

    The combat and motion controls are less than perfect, but the level design and cinematic storytelling really steal the show. Deadly Creatures offers a rare perspective that's very entertaining, if only for a brief time.

    Dark Sector can best be described as a game born out of a formula. To create this game, you will need 2 parts Gears of War, 1 part Resident Evil, and a dash of X-Men. It is totally easy to rip this game to shreds based on this description. But as you play this game, something unexpected happens: you find yourself having an amazing amount of fun.

    Ghost Squad is a culmination of hits and misses, forming a package that succeeds because of its quirky charm and traditional gameplay.

    Definitely a game worth playing, although surprisingly more for its script than its gameplay. Comic fans will get a kick out of the extras, which reference everything from The Dark Knight Returns to Kitchen Sink Press' Scud.

    It was just a good, solid fun RPG, and it remains so to this day.

    A bit too repetitive for its own good, but the unique controls and the online co-op are quite nice indeed.

    Even the game's most tedious moments will offer a good measure of entertainment for strategy gaming fans, though a number of issues may eventually have you questioning whether it's worth sticking with in the long run.

    The basic realities of Blood Stone's shooting and driving are generally overshadowed by the bombastic setpieces.

    Puzzles are engaging and plentiful, and the freestyle mode can easily occupy days of solid creativity.

    If you like online play, King of Fighters does it extremely well. However, with only one single-player offline mode, this title feels a little empty overall.

    I'm not going to pretend that Need for Speed: Nitro can live up to the grandiosity of Shift. However, for an arcade-style racer, Nitro is a ton of fun. As a racer for the Wii, Nitro is phenomenal.

    Painkiller will cater to fans that want their action simple and lightning-quick. The weapon selection is limited but versatile, while the body count is astonishingly high right out of the gate.

    Far from perfect, and its simple gameplay and (mostly) shallow puzzles aren't going to entertain one for long. Still, it's an extremely solid movie tie-in and a mostly seamless platforming experience, with polish where it counts.

    The translation is very good, which is beyond impressive with the quantity of text on display. It is not a game that will appeal to everyone, not by a long shot, but for those who think they would enjoy a title that harkens back to an earlier, less cinematic, far less forgiving era of gaming, Inquisitor has plenty of meat to sink your teeth into.

    Patapon 3 is here, but it's lost something since the second game. There's a missing sense of personality, which was a huge part of the appeal of Patapon 1 and 2. The core game is still great, and there's plenty of good material, but the first two games are undeniably better.

    You really have to dig deep to reveal the charm of this game but if you're willing to invest a chunk of your immediate future into it you will definitely want to get to the end to find out what happened to your sister and your best friend. It's captivating in an addictive way.

    SOCOM has always catered to the hardcore and Confrontation is no different in this regard. Slant Six has done an admirable job updating the formula of past games, but the decision to wipe the single-player slate clean and the copious amounts of bugs are standout problems.

    This game promotes the use of imagination by having players create buildings and craft new objects, but it doesn't go much further than that. Online multiplayer capabilities are nice, as long as other people you know have the game too.

    For a budget title, Operation: Vietnam is a pleasant surprise.

    A title with an identity crisis. It doesn't know whether it wants to be a dungeon crawler or action adventure title, and sadly, it doesn't do either particularly well.

    Adult players may find the story a tad on the horrendous side, but Drone Tactics easily holds its own in the strategy and gameplay departments.

    The problem is that I didn't play it for that long. Ten tracks just isn't enough to carry a rhythm game, even an eight-dollar one. The replay value is just so depressingly low.

    Younger kids that love the Incredibles but aren't exactly skilled gamers are going to have the best time with this game.

    Ultimate Band won't live up to the high expectations of most players who've already had a taste or Rock Band and Guitar Hero, but it's a perfect fit for families on a budget with younger kids who are just looking for something music-oriented to play.
