    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.

    Visually the game is certainly impressive when you take into consideration the number of characters onscreen at one time - with only very infrequent episodes of slowdown - and the draw distance.

    It's fun and well produced but it's a console version of an expansion pack and nothing more.

    Raven did a lot of things right - they didn't mess with success and that will please a lot of fans who enjoyed their previous effort.

    The animation quality is fantastic, even rivaling the movie. The voiceacting, sound effects and soundtrack are all top shelf.

    The only major issue I take with the game is one that I take with almost every single game put out by EA, lack of a solid instruction manual. I for one would appreciate complete information on how to play the game and use new features, what certain options do, and maybe some "rules" information for new comers to the game. I don't want cliff notes, I want the book.

    2K6 is as strong as it ever was and while it might take vets awhile to get a grasp on the ProControl and other injections, it's still incredibly solid and has lost nothing from last years game.

    There are more good quality games in this compilation than in most others so if you see a handful of games that interest you, by all means get your hands on this as you'll likely be exposed to another handful of great games.

    If paintball is something you're passionate about, MAX'D is a superbly crafted digital representation of the sport jampacked with features, pros, gear and challenging gameplay that you'll enjoy far after paintball season is over.

    Gun
    Gun has a great story and it's presented with panache.

    The dialog is well acted and quite humorous. The music is perfect for this game and maintains a consistently light and upbeat mood. It's hard to be in a bad mood when you're in Thrillville.

    The MLB2K series returns this year with its best incarnation yet. It may not deliver the most accurate stats or rosters such as MLB 07, but it delivers far better presentation quality, control, and realistic player animations.

    From the opening theme song to the realistic gun pops, you will not be disappointed with the sound.

    A relatively short, but sweet, action adventure game that is packed with a compelling story, intense gameplay and excellent production values in both the audio and visual department... A lot less about action than it is about adventure.
