    A truly great party game -- both on and offline -- and is a terrifically original and energetic diversion from the dirge of shooters and other serious games that comprise the majority of the Xbox lineup. Just don't get caught playing alone.

    It's a perfect game for the times, and one that doesn't bother with Asimov-inspired tin cans running around spraying bullets.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It delivers a payload of pick-up-and-play fun, a goofy story and unlockable do-dads without resorting to overbearing plot contrivances or busy work.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An invaluable addition to an already great game. The driving missions are a fun and sometimes useful diversion. But the real winner here is how you can more easily deal with their traffic problems.

    If you can still hum the theme to "Gigantor" and the line "I'll form the head!" means anything to you, Robot Alchemic Drive was made for you.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The attractive visuals ride the line between dark and cartoony with expressive characters. It's all tied together with its unique combat and restart schemes, which will either inspire you or drive you mad.

    For Potter fans of all ages, Chamber of Secrets is a must-have.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Those expecting a completely revamped sequel will likely find the additions to be slight, but NFL Street 2 is nonetheless a great-playing game that's an unqualified blast with a few trash-talking, chest-thumping friends in tow.
    • 72 Metascore

    Some may find that Secret Agent doesn't quite have the same biting sense of humor as the original games. It definitely holds up in the gameplay department, though, which is more than enough to make this a successful solo outing.

    There’s something pretty telling about a game that can suck away hours of your time before you know it. That’s just what Endless Ocean did to me. Despite not being a game in the classical sense, Endless Ocean is a solid and fascinating diversion.

    While Syndicate's sense of atmosphere leads to rare shining moments, they are thwarted at every turn by a stilted storyline, unlikable characters, and numerous pacing issues that make the experience difficult enjoy. The co-op, however, surpasses almost anything else available in the genre.

    The single-player game has a few rough spots, but multiplayer is flat-out fantastic. And let’s face it; the incredible graphics don’t hurt either.

    With the Xbox 360 version, you can gawk at Jennifer Morrison on your TV instead of on your computer monitor. And that’ll make you look slightly less loserish. Right?

    It’s a game about the fantastical, but it’s grounded in reality. And that’s refreshing. We wish more developers would try it sometime.

    If the next installment once again offers only incremental improvements, we're knocking somebody's lights out.
    • 81 Metascore

    The quality of the action and the intuitive controls will not disappoint wrestling fans.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    So many excellent ideas are incorporated into this last outing, you'll be feeling the title's influence on similar products years hence.
    • 88 Metascore

    Aesthetic quibbles and longish load times aside, Project Gotham Racing 3 strikes an excellent balance between arcade and sim gameplay without alienating fans of either.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The type of game that makes you want to dust off that green felt cloak and curl up with a sack of dice.
    • 85 Metascore

    Not only adds more stuff to the Sims canon, it improves and more importantly expands the game in subtle but far-reaching ways.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The game's soundtrack mix of classic football marches combined with hip-hop and drum loops...gets almost annoying by game two.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Though gameplay is really one big scavenger hunt though a diverse set of worlds, there are so many memorable moments, from racing down corkscrew slides to surfing lava on a koopa shell, that you can’t help but grin with giddy delight.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Everything from the stylized presentation to the tiring yet satisfying controls to the hours of playtime added by hidden treasures and bonus challenges just screams, “Love me!” And despite being relatively short and the shaking can be exhausting, there isn’t much that fans of good old-fashioned Nintendo platforming won’t like here.

    Other than its lighthearted approach and whimsical characters, what sets Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters apart from similar titles on PSP is the amount of depth and variety.

    Though hardly a tactical marvel, Battle for Middle Earth delivers an exciting, fast-paced experience that successfully captures the feel and mood of the films.
    • 82 Metascore

    The intense strategic gameplay alone makes it one of the better RTS titles released in recent years.
    • 81 Metascore

    The bottom line is that Hitz, the fun fast-paced and frantic arcade-style hockey game, made itself deeper. The result is a more satisfying game overall.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The trial-and-error nature of gameplay and the repeating loops of the plot require certain degrees of patience and repetition that not everyone will want to pony up. In our opinion, however, the game's well worth the effort.
    • 89 Metascore

    The reflex-driven gameplay is almost hypnotic, and the included options are sure to satisfy most hard-core tennis fans and casual players looking for something new.
    • 81 Metascore

    Hits all the whoops with just the right speed. It has a solid career mode and a potent mix of open freestyle tracks and classic lap-based indoor/outdoor tracks.
