    The new game offers impressive graphics mixed with familiar gameplay for a conservative sequel that does the series proud.

    There's some fun to be had with the game, and if you're looking for updated rosters and stats this is a must-buy, but don't expect anything revolutionary.

    This game not only has everything that an add-on pack should have -- fresh units, a new campaign, and new multiplayer maps and modes -- but it has one thing that most don't: a goose-egg price tag.

    While its predecessor broke new ground in the stealth-action arena, "Tenchu 2" hasn't improved much over the original, and has even taken a step back in some areas.

    The questions are clever and the banter from the game's host continues to be deliciously sarcastic. Those features, combined with an excellent Online Play mode, will surely make this a must-grab for any YDKJ fan.

    A fun game, if you can get over the poor multiplayer support and buy yourself a USB-compatible keyboard and mouse.

    An incredibly deep and versatile tactical battle simulator, which is fun at first, but not complete enough to provide a compelling long-term play experience.

    Even despite slight control problems, terrifyingly bad documentation, and console-style save points, there is still enough here to warrant that horror fans check it out.

    Aside from the fact that Invasion feels less like a Star Trek title than it does a "Colony Wars" update, it delivers the goods for a shooter: fast, furious, and addictive action.

    With controls that improve on the PSX version, tight graphics, more than ten levels, and plenty of lightsaber action, Jedi Power Battles has achieved Jedi Master status.

    There are about 15 hours of actual gameplay, and about 5 more hours if you want to pick up all the extra goodies along the way. Still, before you know it, you've finished the game.

    The pure racing and car-combat experience is good when you get down to it, but the odd menu setup makes getting there tougher than it should be.

    Character detail comes at the cost of the environments, which are bland and plain. However, the onscreen action gets so hectic that players won't have much time to hang out and take in the sights.
