    This isn’t a game. It’s a business exercise in turning a popular license into easy money.

    While it doesn’t have the same kind of fast-paced fun as Meteos or Planet Puzzle League, Prism: Light the Way still has some unique gameplay that will appeal to puzzle fans looking for a more slow-paced game of logic and spatial reasoning. At least, so long as they don’t mind the cutesy character designs and hideously saccharine music.

    Fish Tycoon on DS is like that "monster bass" you see from the shore by the weed bed, compared to the tiny baby bass it becomes once it jumps on your hook and you land it. Which means, yeah, I was expecting Fish Tycoon to be better on the DS. It's worse.

    It’s not quite Guitar Hero DS, but your little girl will love it.

    Sure, you see the box and you think, “if this is anything like Wii Sports tennis, it’ll be awesome!”, but trust me when I say this is nothing like Wii Sports Tennis. This is everything like every other crappy port the system has received – graphically inferior, feature-poor and suffering from controls that were originally meant for an analog stick but are now shoehorned uncomfortably into nonsensical hand gestures.

    In the end this will end up in the bargain bin before the next season hit television. Not all licensed game suck, but Avatar certainly lives up to the stereotype.

    Mercury Meltdown Revolution may be a port of a game in a genre the Wii already has in plentiful supply, but it’s a solid port, a good game, and at an ideal price. That adds up to a great value that’s well worth checking out.

    Tony Hawk games have evolved over time, and this title shows that it has an eye on the future, and keeping the franchise fresh. There is a distinct focus to make this game have a certain atmosphere, and it succeeds. This is my new favorite in the series.

    Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground adds all kinds of new features, but it also adds all kinds of new problems. And yet for everything new they’ve absent-mindedly tossed in here, I’d really rather just go back and play Tony Hawk 4.

    Another Tony Hawk game. Don’t expect much more than that.

    Sony NBA 08 for PSP has all the problems as its PS3 big brother only ... bigger?

    Puzzle Quest does an amazing job bringing together the puzzle and RPG genres together in a game that is easily one of the best XBLA titles this year. Don't miss it.

    It sure is neat to look at.

    If you have a PS3 and want this kind of experience, get "Motorstorm."

    This is solid fighter slimmed down for you pocket. It doesn't hit it out of the park every time, but it is passable. The multiplayer is this games strongest suit, and with Wi-Fi it's better.

    This game's promise falls as soon as you open the shrink wrap. Put this into the system, and the game only delivers disappointment. It is an original idea, although poorly executed that deserves some mention.

    The Wii lends itself to the sword fighting very well, but it may be little more than novelty for most people. There is a lot of fan service here, but the title doesn't stand well on its own.

    There's absolutely no reason why anyone who owns Neverwinter Nights 2 wouldn't want this expansion, Mask of the Betrayer.

    Anyone who doesn’t think Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions isn’t worth owning just doesn’t like RPGs.

    This game is a new twist on baseball. Neat in theory, but I'm not sure that cosmetic or game play changes will do much for a genre that is so well established.

    If you’re a PSP owner without a GBA or DS, you need to face the facts – you’re just depriving yourself a lot of fun by not owning one of Nintendo’s handhelds. Take the money you were going to spend on this game and put it towards one of those systems and a copy of Wario Ware.

    This is a solid mini-game collection, and although it is aimed at kids, it does a good job of keeping the simple controls, but making the games different. This game is definitely for kids, but it is something that won't drive you nuts to play with your kids.

    Kind of a Burnout Lite and slightly more fun than frustrating. Minigames hit that exact right "just one more" sweetspot that'll keep gamers playing long after they meant to stop.

    Once again, it’s apparent that Syphon Filter and the PSP were made for each other. While the game isn’t without its issues, it’s still a solid action title that actually feels at home on the handheld. Action fans with a PSP should consider this a must-have.

    This is a good game for Spider-man fans, and although it would infuriate some players for being far too simple of a game. For others it's campy and simple nature can be charming.

    There's no revolution going on here, but NBA 2K8 is as solid as ever.

    Check the three criteria above. If you fit all three, go for it. Otherwise, best stick to real coloring books.

    While Halo 3 doesn't force upon the player another tortuous romp through The Library, it does feature an agonizing substitute complete with seemingly endless waves of Flood victims. This--along with a handful of recycled locales in the final third of the game--is a lack of ingenuity in level design that sticks out sorely amid a slate of superbly conceived features.
