    Although Summit Strike still boils down to more of the same, the Ghost Recon 2 series has proven itself to provide some of best squad-based, realistic action out there.

    Those who are willing to give it a shot will find that it's a great package, offering wrestling fans more than enough to keep them entertained until next year's games offer something bigger, badder, and better.

    It’s almost a perfect game. Severe online connection bugs and freezing problems hamper the experience enough that we can’t give it a full five out of five.

    In terms of fun factor, it doesn’t get much better than this. The game is definitely rough around the edges in a number of places and its slim production values often show through the seams of the otherwise lovely game engine, but none of that really matters. If you like shooting stuff, you will love this game.

    In some ways, the Xbox equivalent of "Katamari Damacy."
    • 86 Metascore

    In some cases, notably in the variety of bosses and in the unlockable bonuses, the first title is better than the sequel.

    Dodgy track list aside, this is a consistently fun and often funny title that keeps the charm and oddity of the Japanese original intact. It's also one of those games that could only work this well on the Nintendo DS, and it's difficult to resist these Agents' combination of charm and dance prowess.

    Stand-out art for a diverse cast of heroes, villains, and soldiers helps the game excel in the graphics category, and although complex, it's set up well enough so you won't get lost in numbers, menus, and statistics.

    We can gripe about colors and crummy modes till the ninjas come home, but the simple fact is that Soul Calibur III is still a top-tier fighting game.

    Ultimately, Retribution doesn’t usurp the PS3 entries in this franchise, but it doesn’t undermine them either. Instead, it’s as solid a side story as God Of War: Chains Of Olympus was to that series. Though, we must admit, your enjoyment all depends on your perspective on the PSP’s ideas of FPS-style controls.

    A solid platformer that will elicit nostalgia in some and déjà vu in others.
    • 77 Metascore

    While the gameplay is super tight, the depth is a bit lacking and the single-player modes could definitely use more variety. But for a lot of gamers, the killer personality, fast pace, and handsome looks of Ultimate Muscle will highlight the best trait the game has, it's simply fun to play.

    A great game. Harnessing the power of your enemy's soul at least superficially changes the ancient formula and incorporates a limited link cable mode for the bartering of souls.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It provides simple, addictive gameplay for the novice with enough depth for all but the most spreadsheet-crazed war gamer.
    • 83 Metascore

    The Wii version is a genuine improvement over the PS2 one. The extra content is solid, the controls are good, and the game itself holds up really well.
    • 83 Metascore

    With a couple tweaks to the gameplay here and there, Sega could have a perennial powerhouse on its hands.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The game deserves special props for its amazingly executed setting; the whole world is so visibly at war that every mission in the game feels completely natural.
    • 85 Metascore

    Technical issues aside, Far Cry 2 is an epic (and epic-ly long) take on the first-person shooter. The setting, open word, and side quests make it feel more like a more action-oriented "Grand Theft Auto," or a less ridiculous "Just Cause," than the original. Which, admittedly, will annoy fans of the original (present company included).
    • 63 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A classic that deserves being reborn, and the remake is even bigger than the original. There are more levels, more beast forms, and a multiplayer mode for those who own a link cable.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    What's most surprising is that titles such as "Pitfall" are still a lot of fun, and even the included sports games still offer a decent amount of replay value.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The game doesn't feel entirely new or original, but it's well executed and consistently fun.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The occasional crashes in the older ones are a little annoying, but they’re still quite playable, and with all their expansions you could easily spend months playing against the AI alone.

    We’re way overdue for this series to let us issue direct commands to individual squad members, or split up teams in more ways than this awkward 3-on-1 business.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Perhaps the most significant expansion to "EverQuest," not only in terms of content, but also in how it has so thoroughly changed the game experience.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A perfectly satisfying way to quell your hunger pains for a long-form, hardcore RTS.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Easily one of the best portable remakes on the PSP. The single player game is entertaining, and the multiplayer options are remarkable.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The simplification of the gameplay also tends to make the game feel a bit repetitive, and it can be frustrating to repeatedly try to make the same jump to that last graffiti spot only to fall and be forced to climb all the way back up and try again...[yet] one of the best games on the Xbox.

    Niggling inconsistencies and slightly bland between-race presentation aside, Colin McRae Rally 3 is a beautiful, realistic, and smooth translation of rally racing. The tracks are gorgeous, challenging, and addictive.

    Battalion Wars carries over the charm, fun, and visual style of the "Advance Wars" games that came before it. However, with no multiplayer and minimal replayability, this is a considerably shorter war than the portable ones.

    The result could be the best "Star Trek" game ever -- maybe not in terms of pure strategic or simulation gameplay, but certainly in terms of being true to its license.
