    The Akrid will really catch you off guard at times. Sometimes you know they’re around, but don’t know where they will pop-up from and sometimes they’ll scare the sh@# out of you.

    The expansion is only $29.99, and well worth it for the hardcore FFXI player.

    Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is a great Star Wars action game, with an interesting story and a lot of potential for fun, so long as as you can look past some moderately annoying issues.

    Strides have been made as far as gameplay modes are concerned, but there is still plenty of room to improve the frame rate and online play.

    If you can't get enough karaoke gaming, then Karaoke Revolution Party is the perfect remedy, with many new and great features to keep you coming back for more.

    Definitely created for players who've never played the series before, Civilization Revolution is a great entry title for console gamers.

    New features improve on the game and while I wish there were more varied songs offered from the start, this is probably the best Karaoke Revolution game to date.

    The limited online mode and lack of a course editor are lamentable, but the new characters and courses are quite nice.

    Mercury Meltdown offers a new twist on an old board game and does it with a style and pizzazz rarely seen in the PSP’s somewhat narrow world. This is definitely worthwhile for anyone who likes challenging puzzle games.

    Despite some control issues, Lock's Quest may just be the sleeper hit of the year. Definitely worth checking out if you own a DS.

    If you’re a gamer that is itching for a challenge, God Hand will deliver. It’s not the most brilliantly made game ever, and in fact it actually feels very unpolished, but once you get over the initial learning curve you’ll have a blast. Just make sure you start on easy mode.

    It's unique, sports great visuals, and is a blast to play. With a free downloadable multiplayer component slated for release in the coming weeks, it's a good value, too.

    One of this year’s improvements also happens to be a disappointment. Last year, we were only given 6 licensed golf courses to choose from. This year, the number has been doubled to 12. However, the PS2, Xbox and PSP versions all contain 21.

    Online issues aside, EA has never released such a feature rich and incredibly polished college football game.

    One of the greatest RPGs to come out in recent years, far surpassing most other attempts at the genre, even by famed Squaresoft. The storyline, characters, combat just blow everything else out of the water.

    A solid game with a few flaws, this shooter isn't the best of it's class, but it certainly stands out.

    Great blast from the past, although the experience mechanics could be a bit better. Overall, 2D has never looked so sweet

    Top notch graphics, immersive game play and sound all add up to another solid, but not revolutionary first person shooter.

    While the Mega Man series have seen some high points and low points over the last twenty years, Mega Man ZX Advent hits the bullseye. You can't go wrong by purchasing this well crafted title.

    Beyond the tropical setting and mini-games, you get a very solid digital replication of everyone’s favorite indoor activity, minus the booze and hustlers of course. A solid offering that will delight billiards fans for a few months.

    Those passionate for an escapade into cursed manors and the spirit world will find The Tormented equally as refreshing as its predecessors.

    It's like "Need for Speed Underground" meets "Burnout," and it's portable on the Nintendo DS! We highly recommend it.

    Battles are fast paced and can get extremely intense; simplistic controls that are easy to learn but tricky to master; Captures the look and feel of Naruto perfectly.

    An excellent getaway from "Halo 2" and "SOCOM 2." Unfortunately, the entertainment may only last a few hours.

    Although not perfect, Karaoke Revolution Party is a solid game for those looking for a good multiplayer title.

    R-Type Command makes for a great portable game for those who love turn-based strategy games.

    While the multi-player is much more full-featured than the single-player, Tony Hawk’s Downhill Jam is nonetheless a great launch title that makes great use of the Wii.

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

    A must-have classic. If you consider yourself a shooter fan, you simply must get this game.

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