    The poor AI and incredibly short campaign will make it boring quickly, but the online play gives a new meaning to portable gaming. Find a wireless connection and jump on.

    A strong title. Kids will love the game and demand to play more while adults may be content with just a single run through.

    Despite these minor flaws I found Switchball to be one of the better puzzle games based on rolling a ball around.

    A much improved game that harkens back to the old days, where hockey was a great console sport.

    An old-school dream. It's this type of title that makes playing games an addictive and sweat-inducing experience. Only the hardcore and mentally tough gamers need apply.

    Definitely good for relieving stress, it’s just a couple of notches away from first person greatness.

    Despite it being shallow and lacking in many categories, it has the most important factor when it comes to video games. Fun.

    Its legacy will be the same as all the previous games in the series; a solid launch racing game that will tide you over while you wait for “the next big title.”

    Pick this one up if you want a fun golf game, but avoid it if you’re expecting something new and amazing.

    This is a nice revision of last year's version. No, it is not an essential buy. If you have to be on the cutting edge, then you need to get this.

    Activision still has some issues to iron out with this series, but die-hard stealth fans will get a solid challenge and several hours of fun game play.

    A good game based on a movie. It's no Riddick but it certainly entertains and is designed for fans of the film.

    While it does have its share of bugs and bad points, overall this game is well worth buying if you enjoy the genre. The multitude of items and armors keep things interesting, while socketed items and armor take customization to higher levels.

    Highly amusing, fun combat system but a bit dragged down by the sometimes hard to get used to controls. Online play is great, but lag is sometimes a painful factor against small enemies.

    It has all the elements needed in a movie-based video game, and in some aspects even goes above and beyond that. However, the lasting appeal of the game leaves a lot to be desired. If they had just thrown in another gameplay mode, this game could have been spectacular.

    Replayability is actually fairly high, for once you have completed a stage you can go back and try to make the star even larger.

    • 80 Critic Score
    A brilliant, if somewhat belated, RPG with a gripping, unique story and one of the best combat systems of any RPG.
    • 73 Metascore

    GG Boost mode adds in a nice change of pace, seamlessly blending a complicated tournament fighter with a traditional, simplistic side-scrolling beat-em-up; Multi-tap support makes for great 4-player party fun.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Overall this is a really solid game that has the potential to be so much more. Unfortunately the repetitive missions and ho-hum gameplay hold it back.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A great game for showing off the capabilities of the DS, and fun while it lasts, even though it isn't long enough.
    • 83 Metascore

    All in all, however, Hitman Blood Money is a worthwhile experience. The satisfaction of seamlessly pulling off an assassination and raking in the highest reward makes all the trial and error worthwhile and, frustration aside, the act of playing through a mission again in an attempt to end up with less notoriety or more money becomes challenging rather than tedious.

    Newcomers to the genre who want a light-hearted golf experience will appreciate the game’s intuitive gameplay mechanics. However, those desiring a more in-depth golf experience may not find it here.

    Casual gamers will find FIFA Street 2 to be a fast-paced, fun and refreshing break from the standard sim-based games that EA is known for.

    Amazing graphics and incredibly fun multiplayer.

    Its simple learning curve and stimulating gameplay make it a high recommendation for not only Suikoden fans but also to those who are new to RPG/Strategy gaming.

    Its slower pace might put off the usual crowd, but those with the patience to explore the immense island and unlock its many secrets won't be disappointed.

    The conversion to the Xbox 360 isn’t perfect, but it does the job. For the love, everyone stop using Ryu and Ken!

    FIFA World Cup 2006 makes some impressive strides over FIFA 06 for the Xbox 360. Changes in graphics and game play are evident, but EA still has plenty of room to improve all aspects of next year’s football game.

    • 80 Critic Score
    Typical compilation title, you’ll either love it or hate it. If you love everything Street Fighter, you will love this collection. If you have never really been a fan, there is nothing in this title that will make you change your mind.

    Fans of the series will no doubt find exactly what they are looking for, while some will struggle with the hard-to-master controls.
