    This game has so much detail at every level of production. It’s much more than a track pack (like AC-DC) and it blows away specific band-themed games like Metallica.

    If you are looking for a slightly darker and edgier version of God of War then look no further than Dante’s Inferno. What it lacks in gameplay originality it more than makes up for with style and substance, painting a dark and sinister portrait of a literary classic and creating a gameplay experience that you won’t soon forget.

    The steep cost of admissions is the only real downside to this entire package.

    In many ways this could be the most robust Madden ever made. Despite it's graphical shortcomings, if you liked previous year's Madden game, this might be the year to take a break from the whole concert scene.

    It's full of satisfying melee combat, signature Bond moments, great cover combat, pretty visuals and awesome driving sequences. It does feature that classic Bond mood to a point and is definitely worth a play through for single player experience.

    Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined me becoming totally addicted to Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders.

    This version of L.A. is a living, breathing city where your actions have a direct bearing on immediate events and could even impact the story much further than you can possibly imagine.

    Island Thunder isn’t your typical FPS. It is more much calculating and often more about team management than blazing gunfire. You setup and execute elaborate tactical assaults working as a leader of a team.

    Despite the lack of intelligent AI that ruined any team-tactical strategy, the game is redeemed by its original gameplay and ongoing humor that is interwoven into every aspect of the game whether it be movies, gameplay, or even the weapons.

    Hits the nail on the head in every aspect of game design. While not a perfect title, it’s hard to fault a developer who packs so much variety and intensity into a single game.

    ASB 2005 is for serious baseball enthusiasts only. Those looking for a casual day at the ballpark should probably check out the titles from EA, 989, or ESPN.

    The clunky inventory and save system that forces you to return to your room is annoying at first but you eventually learn to live with it.

    One of the most original Xbox games I've played in a long time, not only because of the visionary graphics, but the clever intertwining of FPS action and RPG elements and more online modes than any two other games combined.

    Just when racing sims got too deep and repetitive, Monster Games has given us an arcade game that makes being white trash fun. Demolition derby has never been so entertaining and certainly never this addictive.

    Whether you are a kid, have a kid, or just a kid at heart, LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game is a definite most-own title.

    Bring back my Hit, Run, and Stunt challenges and you would have had a flawless game.

    One of the finest sports titles on the Xbox platform.

    The bottom line is you won’t find a more fun-filled multiplayer party game for the Xbox; one that rivals "Dungeons and Dragons Hereos," not in sophistication, but in pure enjoyment for the entire family.

    Features some of the best graphics ever seen on the GameCube and an over-the-top orchestrated score that gives new meaning to the word "epic." The only thing restraining Assault from being a blockbuster title is the lack of online play and extremely short story mode.

    Expect 15-20 hours of gameplay just to get through the game and that's not including any replays for secrets, alternate paths, or checking out any of the secrets or unlocks. The 3rd Birthday rivals a lot of console action-RPG's these days, and while it probably would have played better and received a wider audience on the PS3, I have to commend Square Enix for publishing a fantastic sequel and an exceptional gameplay experience on the PSP that any fan of the genre or the series should definitely check out.

    Just Dance 3 manages to edge past Dance Central 2 in overall accessibility and definitely in fun factor.

    In addition to the main Discovery mode you can also compete for times in Ghost mode or tackle the levels in the Challenge and Bonus modes where you are often required to complete the level with 100% of your mercury. There is plenty of content that easily makes this worth the $5 initial purchase and with the promise of more DLC and some that is already available; Mercury Hg is one of the better XBLA purchases this holiday season

    So if you love a fun and challenging shooter with a clever mix of styles and a killer assortment of boss battles then Nano Assault is definitely worth checking out. While 32 levels might sound like a lot, they are surprisingly short and fast, and competent gamers can blast their way through the Story Mode in 3-4 hours, but with the endless appeal of Arcade and Boss Rush modes there is enough addictive old-school arcade goodness to keep coming back for more microscopic carnage time and time again.

    MLB 12: The Show offers a massive amount of gameplay wrapped up in a simple brown cardboard box. This is like the slightly less-attractive sister who is really smart, so while her hot sibling (MLB 2K12) is getting all the superficial action, those seeking a more permanent and richer baseball relationship should probably overlook these surface flaws and stick with the REAL DEAL – MLB 12: The Show. From a purely gameplay standpoint - it doesn't get any better or more complete than this.

    Despite having no real online or real-time multiplayer, Burnout Crash is totally addicting and lends itself perfectly to that "just one more time" mentality that is perfect for mobile gaming. And for only $5, this is a far better value than the XBLA version.
