    With EA Sports’ March Madness still only treading stale water, 2K Sports continues to innovate, staying ahead on game play appeal. College Hoops 2K8 for PS3 is the king of next-gen console college hoops titles.

    It's not "Oblivion," and it's not trying to be. Enchanted Arms is to Tactics-style RPGs what Oblivion was to action-RPGs. A solid next-gen effort from an underdog developer.

    College Hoops 2K6 is does almost everything well, providing a high-maintenance Legacy mode for the sim-obsessed and a sturdy online mode for those who just want to rip up the courts with their favorite college team.

    With the most familiar controls of any version released this year, the Xbox 360 version edges out the PS3 version this season, by a hair.

    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.

    If you loved "Myst," you will love this. Prepare to get addicted.

    Tomb Raider: Anniversary is a wonderful birthday gift for 10-year-old Lara; just wait till she hits puberty!

    Dungeons & Dragons Tactics is the best thing to happen to the D&D license since Wizards of the Coast commissioned the first Neverwinter Nights PC game.

    Final Fantasy III benefits from a complete makeover in its first US appearance, transforming from the ugly duckling of the mainline Final Fantasy series into a must-have for DS owners!

    SmackDown vs. Raw 2008 may be the only major pro wrestling title in town, but it's a good one and, unlike Madden with the NFL license, doesn't let its exclusivity lead to a lack of innovation and improvement. A solid upgrade!

    Syphon Filter Dark Mirror showcases all of the possibilities of the platform and executes them flawlessly.

    This is worth playing all the way through, the developers reward you for wading through their world.

    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.

    So eventhough this game isn't the horrible likes of which Ghost Recon 2 was, it's still got its fair share of flaws in how short and monotonous the single-player storyline is.

    If you’re looking for a PS2 RPG with a unique personality, Odin Sphere’s the game for you.

    PQ: Practical Intelligence Quotient isn’t a great tool for any real standardized measurement of how brainy a person is, but it is a very well done variant on the puzzle genre.

    Yes, all of these songs came out in the decade of neon. Not all of these will fit your taste, but that's the way it is. Do not buy this game alone, it should be seen as an expansion to another Singstar title.

    Newbie or veteran, fan or critic, you will enjoy this game. Blood Money is frustrating enough to be challenging, but fun enough to keep you coming back for more. Best game in the series.
    • 77 Metascore

    The game is short, but it almost seems like a good thing, as too much more of it would have been too much. Again, the game is great fun (even given some frustrating camera issues that make it difficult to pinpoint an enemy causing Tequila damage), but it’s best in small doses.

    Anyone looking for a more traditional FPS experience online will find this to be an ideal choice.

    Not a perfect version of Tetris by far, but still a good one, and the online play should be enough of a selling point for anyone who's a fan of the game.

    It's more of a straightforward shooter, but it's still gorgeous and the best squad-based shooter for your money on the PS3.

    Minor flaws, such as issues with putting and a reduction in unlockable items are boggling, but overall the game is solid. Tee up—Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07 is easily a winner on PlayStation 3.

    If you used to have a Genesis, you need to pick this disc up and relive some good times. If you always wanted to get one but were a Nintendo loyalist, then you should pick this up as well and see what you were missing.

    Don’t be fooled by comparisons to Super Paper Mario – Crush is its own unique animal, and a puzzle game through-and-through. However, if that’s what you’re looking for, Crush delivers with a fresh concept, a solid presentation and some truly enjoyable dimension-twisting puzzles.

    Look at it this way – at 400 points, this game is essentially 20 quarters worth of gameplay. If you ever played the game in the arcade, odds are good you used up at least that many.

    While there are not new concepts at work here they fit together to make a great game.

    What could have been a generic puzzle game is made all the better by a layer of depth with the RPG elements. Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords is a very fun title that can be played in short bursts as well as marathon stretches.

    Regardless of all of these problems, Earth Defense Force 2017 is still wonderful, stupid fun that manages to surpass its lowly production values and shoddy appearance to become a surprisingly superb game.
