    It’s a Doom RPG from cell phones with a fantasy theme ported to the DS. Odd? Sure, but it’s a good, unique dungeon crawler that’s surprisingly addictive in spite of its somewhat simplistic nature. If you’re a fan of the genre (or simply curious), it’s certainly worth your while to try it out.

    Looking at this as part of an overall Singstar package, Amped does a good job of bringing more songs into the fold. As a stand-alone title, it doesn't live up to its title.

    This is one of the few games released for the holiday buzz that seems to measure up to being a game, not an advertisement.

    As an arcade space shooter, Xyanide doesn't break any new ground, but it is a solid entry that is fun. The flaws aren't enough to diminish an otherwise fun time with the original Xbox.

    A good step forward and an idea of how 2K Games will utilize their exclusive license.

    You get to play a cartoon here, and it's a complete fighter. It's good for fans of the anime, as well as fighter fans.

    This game should please fans of the series (especially those that disliked the changes made in the second game), but it won't thrill them.

    DDO is definitely good for a week or two, but after that it doesn’t really offer anything new or rewarding.

    Fans of mech titles, and specifically the building simulation aspect of mech titles, should rejoice, as this is an amazing and full-featured game.

    Prey falls short of revolutionary by becoming a victim not only of time, but its own success. By not following through on the promise of a couple of very new and interesting gameplay mechanisms, the developers have delivered only part of the game that was possible.

    NCAA Football 2007 is the Anna Kournikova of next-gen football games; beautiful to look at and spend time with, but seriously lacking in depth and achievement.

    The wealth of multiplayer options rounds out an assortment of gameplay modes that provide a ton of gameplay that should keep you busy until the next installment.

    Sudoku Gridmaster is, in a way, both the best and the worst sudoku videogame on the market. It provides the best straightforward, “I just want to play” game of sudoku out there, but at the same time, it’s severely lacking in the options department.

    Dungeon Siege: Throne of Agony may not be the greatest RPG to appear on PSP ever, but it deserves to be on most gamers’ Top 5 list.

    It's not without a few problems here and there, but if you liked the console MechAssault games, or are just looking for a solid mech action title on the DS, MechAssault: Phantom War won't disappoint you.

    Don't know where to start when getting a game for a girl? This is a good place. Nancy Drew has been around for years for a reason, and this mystery adventure does a good job of fitting in with the franchise.

    While Ar tonelico: Melody of Elemia may not be host to cutting-edge graphics, its script and game play make up for it, delivering solid turn-based entertainment for at least 50 hours of enjoyment. A solid choice for NIS America fans.

    A powerhouse at multiplayer, a pinto at single player, if you have a group of friends or the patience to wait for the online players, this is a must have.

    This is the best of the Pirates games this summer, and adventure platformers are a throwback that is worth revisting.

    Shrek the Third is probably one of the best platformers on the Xbox 360. Too bad there aren’t more to compare it to.

    Jerry Seinfeld plus Xbox 360 platformer equals lots of gaming goodness.

    Spongebob’s Atlantis Squarepants is a good game that does justice to its license. It may not be quite on the same level as your average Mario game, but it’s still original and fun enough that fans of the show are sure to enjoy it.

    falls down due to graphical flaws that, while forgivable on PSP, just aren’t when it comes to PS2 titles.

    Just Cause had potential to be a GTA-style game on par with the GTA series itself. Unfortunately, a short story mode and a lack of much else to do robs this game of its staying power.

    Game Tycoon 1.5 needs a 1.6 patch to fix some out-standing issues, but otherwise provides a solid game as well as a trip down memory lane, from 1982 to present!

    If you have a little girl (or perhaps a somewhat effeminate little boy) that loves ponies, you really can’t go wrong with Pony Friends. While it’s not quite as polished and ambitious as Nintendogs was, it’s still surprisingly good, and head and shoulders above most other virtual pet games.

    Though lacking in length and complexity, Harvey Birdman Attorney At Law makes for a nice tide-me-over snack in attorney sim games until the next Phoenix Wright game hits store shelves. And Adult Swim fans will like it.

    All in all, Dr. Sudoku is a fair to decent portable version of sudoku, albeit the game has some moderate faults in the presentation and some other annoyances here and there. If you're a fan of sudoku, you'll probably get your money's worth out of this game.

    For $20, getting this Rampage title with its two predecessors is a pretty good deal, so long as you don't mind the shallow, repetitive gameplay.
