    Thankfully, lackluster graphics and singular thrills do not a poor game make.

    Some of the controls could have used some tweaking, the enemy AI tends to be pretty bland and, overall, we've done most of this before. However, it's got just the right mix of several other games with touches of originality, and it kept us coming back.

    Finally allowing the player to focus on the strategy element of the realtime strategy, the computer assistant is "Submarine Titan's" big achievement and pulls what otherwise is a forgettable genre performer into an interesting title for RTS gamers.

    This is a quality title, and rather unique in its execution -- it's been a while since we've been able to dive into an all-action title with such ease. The web-slinging alone makes this game worth your attention.

    Impressive animation, linear levels that will confuse absolutely no one and a large number of adversaries make Quackers the perfect gift for under-aged gamers.

    With one nagging exception, there's really pretty little wrong with the game, but it doesn't exactly push any boundaries either.

    The track editor is what really sets the title apart, though, allowing players to easily make a variety of tracks and race on them immediately.

    It's not the most mind-blowing RPG ever, but it's good, clean, action-packed fun from start to finish.

    An adrenaline-packed racing game with positive points that outweigh its obvious flaws, Demolition Racer is a game that most people will enjoy.

    We wouldn't eBay one of our internal organs to own this game, but it is fun enough to be worth the price of admission.

    Not only do the additions work well enough with the game not to detract from its fun, but the classic Tetris has also been added to the mix for those old-schoolers who would rather play the original.

    Our suggestion: turn off the lights, crank your speakers, get some Jolt! Cola and a couple of Lik-A-Stiks and settle in for a few hours of happy-go-lucky brain and teeth rot.

    Stylish and fun despite some repetitiveness, this is one of the better action games you can pick up this year.

    Hey You, Pikachu is bright and saccharine, the videogame equivalent of a "Brady Bunch" marathon with a pre-sugared cereal chaser.

    It's got bottomless depth, good AI and everything we loved so much about the series. It just doesn't have much new stuff to talk about.

    The multiplayer is what really sets the game apart from most puzzle games, in fact, letting two people fight for space onscreen, pushing the separating line back and forth by performing combos.

    It's a tight ride, but there's just one problem -- we expected a lot more control.

    Standard jumping and puzzle-solving elements form the meat of play, and cute little caesuras are thrown in to keep the play from getting stale.

    Although it's a short experience, Frogger 2 was nearly all fun.

    Fun, simple fun. And massive destruction. That's about it.

    Combining some light strategy, action and a lot of item hunting, Chicken Run captures the subtle qualities of the movie it's derived from (which was also an unexpected hit).

    Not only does it not force us to learn new skills, think in new ways or read a silly manual, it also reminds us forcibly of Crash Bandicoot, one of our all-time favorite platform games.

    Fits like a familiar old glove (or gauntlet), but smoother, better-fitting and lined in fine, Japanese, brocaded silk.

    Any young gamer age five to 10 will be overjoyed by all that "Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards" has to offer, while seasoned gamers will be left wanting more.

    The game simply and consistently provides competency in large doses, and emerges as the Dreamcast's best, most mindlessly fun plane shooter.

    It's certainly not the game for everyone, but those of us seeking a slightly more sophisticated take on old-school beat-'em-ups will find many hours of blistering goodness.

    Because this game is targeted at the kiddies, and because sometimes a little (or in this case, a whole lot of) simple, addictive gameplay is just what the kiddies need, Kao Kangaroo succeeds marvelously on this level. Just don't expect much more.

    The AI even seems capable of adapting to a gamer's tendencies; a play that worked great in one situation may not work so well if used in the same situation a second time.

    In its own way, "Soulbringer" gets things right where it counts: the transformation of your character from a powerless nebbish to a spiky-helmed ass-kicker of world-changing proportions.
