    I can only recommend this title to Guitar Hero enthusiasts that feel the band side of their collection is sorely missing the tracks included with this release. Everyone else out there could just as easily hold out for Guitar Hero 5, or wait for Smash Hits to hit the bargain bin or used section of their favorite game store.

    A very simple and rather easy game with about 50 different levels. There's nothing else after getting through Story Mode, but you can replay every single one of the levels and try to improve your score…unless it was flawless to start with!

    If you absolutely need to look at the fanciest graphics, or if you just simply hate weird Japanese humor, Touch My Katamari is not for you. However, for anyone who can handle it, this title offers gameplay so addictive you'll struggle to put it down, despite its flaws.

    All-in-all, Killzone: Shadow Fall brings more good things to the table than bad, and a robust multiplayer component gives it a lot of playability past the campaign.

    There aren't a lot of major changes to the original formula. At its core, it's essentially the same game only a bit better.

    Unlockables and medals add some replayability, but it's still just about the dancing.

    Once you get a hang of the new controls, there's a ton of content here, though most of it is taken directly from the franchise's previous installments.

    This game is not very difficult but it's not so easy either. If I could describe it in one word, I'd say it's engaging.

    There's a ton of content available, but far too much of it is repetitive. That said, if you enjoy leveling up and questing, then there's 50+ hours of it here.

    The sixty dollar price tag is a bit much to take, especially if you already spent sixty dollars on the original two years ago, but if Persona 4 Arena has been a staple in your fighting game library, Ultimax gives you more than enough content to satisfy you for another two years, and hopefully with patches and DLC it will get even better.

    The Dream of the Turtle has the basic point-and-click formula down to a science. It does have a style all its own and it's different enough to make it an interesting alternative for those looking for something different.

    Like all pet sims, what you get out of this game depends on what you want from it. If you want to raise all the breeds and compete in all the events, this will be a lengthy game. If you just want to raise one pet, don't expect to play it for more than two weeks.

    Fans of the series will still find plenty to like here, but just be aware that this second helping isn't going to taste quite as fresh as the first.

    Electrified ninja swords, stealth armor, and a new gauss rifle are only a few of the goodies awaiting players. The vignette is an entertaining diversion, but the rewards for completing it are what make it truly worthwhile.

    This is not for everyone, but if you want a feudal Japan political simulator, it provides hours of entertainment.

    It’s fun. It’s as fun, if not more, than any of the previous games. It’s not going to change the world ten times over, but for a launch title, this is where we should be.

    For an all ages title that clearly caters to younger players, Wild Earth: African Safari is substantially entertaining on the Wii.

    Eternal Poison has to be one of the most entertaining RPGs I have played all year. Although it sticks firmly to genre conventions in terms of general gameplay mechanics, the overkill system is interesting enough and adds a new (albeit simple) dimension to the battle system. However, Eternal Poison’s real strength comes from its multi-faceted story.

    On the whole, Ghostbusters is an impressive production most fans should eat up. We had a fun time with the game, though we were also left with serious reservations due to glitching that might cause less-experienced gamers to hang up their proton packs well before the journey ends.

    There are parts that are exciting, yet others that I know need work, and some features that feel unnecessary.

    Madagascar Katz is a perfectly solid kart racer, and it is definitely not the "cash-in" that I was expecting it to be. Though parents and young kids will probably pick this title up based on its name alone, they are actually in for a treat, as the game behind the license is actually quite good. Although the game's difficulty may be a turn-off for some younger or inexperienced players, I found the game as a whole to be very refreshing.

    A success, thanks mainly to its innovative battle system. And best of all, there's plenty of room to improve the formula in sequels and other games; this franchise could be unstoppable if it adds better character development options and more variety in its combat.

    There’s a whole lot to do if you enjoy challenging puzzlers: over 100 levels on Puzzle mode, tons of stages on Action mode, co-op support, and several multiplayer modes locally or via Xbox LIVE.

    It's certainly a feast for the eyes and is probably the superior way to get introduced to the game. If you are a fan of the original, on the other hand, you are essentially paying $20 to play a far prettier, slightly shorter, somewhat adapted version of what you have already played.

    You're only going to get your money's worth out of this game if you plan on getting a lot of use out of the multi-player mode.

    ShootMania Storm is a breath of fresh air in this world of carbon-copy military shooters. It’s a new take on an old genre that will satisfy anyone who grew up alongside the early shooters.
