    While this clever European import proves there are still fresh and innovative concepts for PC gamers, the fun is over too quickly. A skilled player will be able to complete all 14 episodes in about two or three hours.

    For those looking for a challenging and strangely-addictive diversion that's considerably different than the majority of computer game offerings out there, MTS is an excellent pick for ages 8 to 108.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Beautiful graphics, special effects and a compelling storyline inspire the latest "Castlevania" adventure for the Game Boy Advance.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Thrill-seekers in search of a stylized 3-D shooter with a compelling story will find plenty of both in Ubi Soft's XIII.

    If it's heart-pounding action you crave, this anything-but-serious sequel should slap a smile on your face.

    The game also throws in some science fiction by adding monsters and the undead who fight alongside the Nazis.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    Sure, it's not the most action-packed or finely tuned game, but there are enough clever attacks and humorous elements in Pulse to keep you playing through to see what other goodies - or appendages - they'll toss your way.

    • 78 Critic Score
    A B-movie-based street fighting game with a lot of variation, mini missions and little problems.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    This game is interesting enough to keep most kids' attention with a bit of innocent humor adults will appreciate and a Christian rock soundtrack even non-Christians can bear.

    • 70 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    An interesting portable Myst-style graphic adventure with good graphics and fun controls but a slow pace and a lot of reading.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    A good WWII shooter with great graphics and effects, but missing the finer points and freedom in the first-person mode.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    Though a little cheesy, it's a good way to create a customized home workout with menu suggestions and progress chart.

    • 75 Critic Score
    The Hulkster follows commands easily, the camera gives you an excellent view of the action and you don't need to mash 20 buttons for every combat move you make.
    • 54 Metascore

    There are some other beefs, too, such as odd-looking animations that make the players look like they're skating on the court.
    • 71 Metascore

    Every time your character is killed and you restart the game, you have to sit through a seemingly endless series of movies that re-establish the plot.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    An enjoyable, silly diversion that will trigger a few laughs and -- unfortunately -- a bit of aggravation, as well.

    For a game that looks so good, it's a shame it can also be a pain in the neck.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    A big hit in arcades; while the home version lacks the rifle grip and scope of the coin-op machine, it captures its feel.

    You need to have a sense of humor if you want to box, at least if you want to box in R2R2: R2.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Live ammunition is a cute concept that doesn't grow tiresome because you need to strategize about which critters work best in different bounty-hunting situations.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    A fun but easy diversion that's geared more toward the younger or casual gamer.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 71 Critic Score
    An undeveloped but great take on first-person views makes this a strong rental but iffy purchase.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The single-player game play, however, hasn't changed much over the past couple of years. It suffers from a skimpy playbook and dim-witted AI-controlled opponents who do odd things like leave receivers wide open for a throw with no defensive backs in sight.
