    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.

    American Conquest is a solid RTS that will entertain many a history buff and the casual gamer alike. Though it does have its share of issues, the game is still worth checking out.

    In the final analysis, Suikoden V brings the series back to basics in terms of what made past titles appealing, after a radical departure in Suikoden IV.

    GT Legends may appeal more to hardened racers, but it may tempt the more inexperienced group of gamers too.

    The game’s two biggest failings are that it’s too short and too easy.

    Offers a few new welcome twists to the racing genre. The fully-realized island of Oahu is fun to drive around in and beautiful to see, and the many different missions make the game fun for different types of players.

    Remember playing Lemmings "back in the day"? If you do and can't be bothered to search out any of the free versions for the PC or if you want to be able to play it "on the go" then this is for you.

    This one has a better story that makes playing through it worth the time investment.

    Stats-addicts and control freaks, rejoice! Baseball Mogul 2007 has most of what fans of sports management sims look for, and does it all without wasting your time, thanks to a fast sim engine!

    Tales of the Abyss won’t be going toe-to-toe with "Final Fantasy XII" any time soon, but is a fun and entertaining tale in its own right.

    Pac-Man: Championship Edition is a surprisingly fun retooling of the classic that may even find fans in those that didn’t care for the original. It’s just a shame it’s a tad feature-poor and a little pricey.

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

    The bottom line, however, is how much enjoyment will be gained by picking up OutRun 2: Coast 2 Coast – and it's a lot. Those that find the Project Gotham or Gran Turismo franchises a bit intimidating have a game to pick up and play for a long time.

    It’s not perfect, it’s not available on next-gen systems, but for control freaks, it may be the most exhaustively complete sports SIM ever released on a console.

    A good game that should have been better. Hopefully there will be a sequel to bring more game modes in, but the Pokemon theme needs to be turned down if not tossed completely.

    Cars is a good adaptation of the Pixar film, providing a fun kart racer appealing to the younger crowd, with racing AI good enough to captivate older racing game fans.

    ATV Offroad Fury 4 is another great extension of the series that manages to keep things fresh with tight handling, improved physics, and an assortment of gameplay modes including tons of multiplayer options.

    The story is very good, but the gameplay execution leaves me wanting. A solid adventure game, but it seems to be coasting on the strength of its star.

    This is yet another solid Castlevania game, but the series is starting to tire out thanks to a lack of worthwhile change. What changes this game does make simply don’t cut it, and while Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin is still a decent title, it happens to be far too much like the last decent title in the series.

    Dragon Quest Monsters – Joker delivers some much-needed freshness to the monster collecting genre, but don’t expect it to be Dragon Quest IX. It’s just pure monster-collecting fun.

    While some PS2 owners will be glad their old platform is getting some port-down love, the game just isn't getting any better from a graphical standpoint.

    If you've never played the first Tomb Raider, this is a great way to go about it. If you have, this is a great way to get reacquainted with it.

    This is a game that caters for all players; from war enthusiasts to war-hating vegetarians.

    One of the best sci-fi military shooters that the PS2 has seen. It's short, but with high replay value and a lot of extra content.

    The movements of the characters are nigh hilarious and detract from a true serious experience. If you don't get hung up on that, you will probably have just a grand ole time.

    Enjoyable, but at times frustrating. I recommend it for those who enjoy adventure games, but caution those who are new to the genre. Be prepared to think.

    While it’s awesome in small chunks of a couple levels at a time, the average gamer will get tired of the same mission types over and over again.

    Keepsake is a very enjoyable game for the most part, although you may find yourself pulling your hair out at times. You should definitely give this game a try, if only for the beautiful graphics and design.

    Not quite living up to it's expectations with a story that kind of falls apart at the mid-way point. But presenting fun and action filled gameplay, that makes this one of the better shooters on the 360 right now. Visually amazing, and has great sound.

    It’s still fun after all these years and plays better than many fancy 3D fighters that could be named. It is well worth the small cost.
