    A sure thing for any GBA owner and makes for an above-average multiplayer racer.

    If you're not heartless, Nintendogs will be one of the most innovative, inimitable, and impressive games you've come across.

    While only high leveled players will really get to explore all that this expansion has to offer, newer ones will want access to the achievements, so they too will want to upgrade, even if it takes them awhile before they get to head to the skies.

    Civ City: Rome doesn’t do much to meaningfully innovate, but it does successfully take the more important design elements of past games and incorporates them into a challenging, great looking, and great playing package.
    • 74 Metascore

    There’s a lot to like here, and the game does a nice job of blending mindless destruction with equal parts stupid- and well-thought out humor.

    The only warning you need: Watch out for bugs that range from slight inconveniences to ones that completely stunt your progress.

    Fans of classic horror and science fiction will enjoy it more than most, but the emphasis on action will win over gamers whose tastes are in tune with competitive games like "Twisted Metal" and lighter fighting game fare.

    May not be perfect, but it's a definite improvement over 2003's game and you simply can't beat the price.
    • 86 Metascore

    The levels are fun, the gameplay is solid, and the puzzles and bosses require more than a bit of brain matter to figure out, resulting in a nice sense of accomplishment every time you reach a new milestone in Raz's adventure.

    Rise of Legends is a very different sort of RTS game that genre fans will be able to pick up and play but yet will find themselves drawn into thanks to its very different look and feel.

    One thing 2K Sports continually proves, however, is that it can bring the game even when it doesn't look as sharp as the competition.
    • 79 Metascore

    Subtle touches such as the clips from HotD2, voice acting, and mimicked designs of the series' various settings make PotD a fitting homage to the series.

    The graphics in Super Monkey Ball Jr. truly shine. Executed in the same style as its arcade/console counterparts, Jr. plays in full 3D This level of quality should surprise many.

    Take it all together, though, and it's a pretty clear snapshot of what made Sega's 16-bit console worth remembering. It's a great nostalgia trip, an even better history lesson, and hopefully the first in a long series of Genny revivals.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A very addictive game that continues to surprise and delight the more you play. For the money, there's plenty to do, and best of all it lets you focus on what you find fun.

    You'll adore Alien Hominid. An attractive price, original concept, and splendid execution outshine issues such as its short-lived thrills and shallow premise.

    On a rudimentary gameplay level, Syberia is an average adventure game with average puzzles. But dig a little deeper and you'll find an experience that evokes a somber mood that stays with you long after you've finished playing.

    With tons of secrets to uncover, and a surprising array of different gameplay options, Mortal Kombat: Deception is a surprisingly fun package.
    • 65 Metascore

    Izuna 2 is fun to play and occasionally just plain funny as well, which is why it shouldn't get lost in the middle of its suddenly crowded little niche.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The single-player experience still leaves much to be desired, but the multiplayer experience definitely earns that thirty dollar price tag.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An exceptional game housed in an exceedingly generic shell. The parts that work well do so brilliantly, while those that don't only serve to make the game feel incomplete. There are things that will annoy the hell out of you, no question, but there's also a ridiculous amount of fun to be had.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    As a first-person shooter, it doesn't quite reach the level of a "Quake" or "Half-Life," but neither is the correct measuring stick, since the gameplay here falls somewhere in between the two.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    While the structure and sidequests are a little too hard core and not as good as we would've hoped for in the first true "Final Fantasy" sequel, Final Fantasy X-2 is a great game nonetheless.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Throwing kicks, punches, taunts, and even princesses in homage to '70s era martial arts, this laugh-and-punch thrill ride is a ton of fun. Stupid fun, yes, but fun nonetheless.
    • 74 Metascore

    Even with the short running time, however, Genji is so well-constructed that anyone partial to sword combat should pay attention.
    • 76 Metascore

    Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness is a great intro into the episodic gaming world.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Both the pawn system and the tactile nature of the boss fights are the exemplary features that ensures this game defies the categorization of being derivative. This is one of those promising rough-around-the-edges experiences where you can't help but want a sequel even before your first playthrough is complete.
    • 89 Metascore

    It's one of the few singularly unique titles to find its way to shelves this year and is truly great fun.

    We're peeved at the ability to flick aside 18-wheelers like they're raisins on a table, but overall, you're going to have problems finding a more visceral, violent driving game.
    • 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).
