    A no-brainer purchase for hard-core fanboys but still priced a bit too high for everyone else. At least give it a rent for city-swinging fun and to try the New Goblin.

    As good as a derivative puzzler can be. Puzzle Scape won't make you forget Lumines or Tetris, but it will offer enough variety to find a spot in your PSP puzzle game starting rotation.

    Touched shows that the new technology in the DS can add to the game’s novelty, but there needs to be some use of the standard technology as well.

    Yet another PSP title that is held back from greatness due to excessive load times. Despite this, it's a must own for RPG fans.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    It’s a solid turn-based strategy game that’s easy to pick up and fun to play, good for both fans and those new to the genre. The lack of multiplayer hurts, but it’s not a mortal wound.

    Mario Kart Wii feels recycled and simplified from past installments, but it's saved by a handful of creative and nostalgaic courses and it's excellent 12-player online matches.

    While this game still falls short in a variety of areas, the nuts and bolts of the poker playing are in place and are perfectly tweaked.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    If you haven't picked the game up on another platform and fancy visiting a video game classic, lovingly restored for a new audience, then this is certainly a game worth checking out.

    Rogue Trooper is a pleasant surprise for those looking for a slightly different military shooter. What it lacks in glitz and finesse it makes up in sheer fun – and isn’t that what gaming is really all about?
    • 64 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    At 8 to 10 hours of game play, it won’t be the toughest challenge on the market, but it’s one of the best television/movie to video game adaptations you will find on the market.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    The good outweighs the bad, and the developers get extra points for making the DS version unique without giving up the overall adventure and story.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    It may not be as classic as its name implies but this collection is longer on fun than you may expect. If it were a $30.00, $40.00, or $50.00 game it would be a no-go, but at $20.00 this is well worth it.

    At 8 to 10 hours of game play, it won’t be the toughest challenge on the market, but it’s one of the best television/movie to video game adaptations you will find on the market.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    The game is full of flaws in both game and level design that are sure to push your patience and raise your blood pressure. That being said, when the game works like it should, it is a hell of a lot of fun.

    Although it's technically a fine game, if you own the original, there's not much reason to purchase WWE Day of Reckoning 2.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    While some of the titles included may not scratch your old-school itch, the majority certainly will help you remember why you fell in love with video gaming.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    It doesn't have ultra-realistic CG cut scenes, it doesn't have memorable characters that will jerk a tear from your eye when they fall in battle, but Etrian Odyssey is the quintessential old school RPG experience.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    While there certainly are a lot of things that could have been done better with the Xbox version of Mafia, it still remains an enjoyable game.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    Another expectedly solid title from EA. Unfortunately, a few faults keep it from true greatness.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    Fans of the third-person action genre are suited to enjoy this game and will certainly walk away with some level of satisfaction.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    A fun title that gets old just a bit too quick in single player, but is a strong addition to the series.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    Even if you just find a couple songs you really like, it's the kind of game you'll go back to quite often when you have some free time. So overall, it's a good game. Unfortunately, it's just doesn't have enough gameplay modes to make it great.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    Solid racing and a good online premise save this game from being a ho-hum racer. It may not be jaw dropping and great, but it is good and that's all that some games need to be.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    Mega Man ZX is a good, though not perfect, action game that does justice to the Mega Man series.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    Although clearly not targeted towards the hardcore gamer, this is a great way to revisit some old favorites.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    A worthwhile bargain purchase for hardcore LP fans and for anyone who missed the title the first time around, but this is not going to knock everyone off their feet nor is it a "must play" for anyone with less than a fanatical interest in the original.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    So here we have a sixteen game collection for thirty bucks, that won’t take up a lot of space on your Wii, packs in some good games, and whose only problems are various other locations to play these games and a bit of hoop jumping for some of them.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    An otherwise solid title plagued by ghastly controls, Super Monkey Ball: Touch and Roll is frustrating at best, its saving grace being a slew of incredibly fun minigames.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Deadly Silence manages to exhume possibly some of the most memorable aspects of the series, while fine-tuning the experience with some intriguing DS-capabilities. However, its control method and outdated visuals can prove frustrating at the best of times for newcomers to the series.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    A very well-made sim game on the DS. Solid, fun, and worth checking out especially for animal lovers/younger gamers.
