    Obviously, this is a game targeted to a specific audience, and while non-Transformers fans will find plenty to like it might be best as a rental. But for those who thrive in the world of high-tech morphing robots, the Battle for the AllSpark is a most tempting gameplay feature that will have thousands of gamers making daily contributions to the ongoing war.

    At $1.99, I can confidently give Pirate's Treasure a recommend. The technical issues are manageable, and the controls can be frustrating, but they get the job done.

    Though this game may not appeal as much to dance game veterans who prefer the more complicated step patterns and higher challenge level offered by the DDR games, other players might greatly enjoy Dance Factory’s straightforward steps, customizability, and playability.

    It combines the storytelling techniques and character designs of a quality anime with a deceptively simple combat system and a plot that can be quite captivating at times.

    It lacks the polish that could make it a worthy brawler right up there with Super Smash Bros. or Power Stone, but it's a fantastic entry level game for the kids with just enough depth to make it an occasional round with the adults.

    When it comes to soccer on the PSP it's either this or World Tour Soccer 06. Only 2006 FIFA World Cup manages to capture all of that magic and recreate the pageantry of the World Cup better than any World Cup game before it, and it puts it in the palm of your hand.

    The unique design for the Wii console brings the world of Shrek to life with a physicality unmatched by any other action platform title, and the entertaining gameplay makes this title a perfect complement to what will easily be the blockbuster box-office event of the year.

    And even though the game is a bit light in its scope, the treatment of the subject is handled with as much attention to detail as you can possibly imagine, and with a stellar cast of voice actors and a music selection to set the mood, Contents Under Pressure is just waiting to explode on your Xbox.

    While Sydney is certainly more enjoyable to look at than Sam Fisher or Solid Snake, the simplistic gameplay, lack of stealth, and TV-targeted visual style is likely to appeal only to fans of the show.

    A great action game and there is nothing else like it available on the GameCube. For fans of the Spawn franchise, Manson fans, or fans of Goth-horror in general, this is a no-brainer.

    If you have any love for the sport of tennis and own a PSP then Smash Court Tennis 3 is a great game to add to your library.

    With the many varied objectives and the third person mode there is a nice change in gameplay that is quite refreshing from the usual kill all the enemies or get to a certain point on the map.

    I recommend this title for those seeking a good co-op title for the Wii that doesn’t involve two plumbers. If you're still not sure on whether or not to pick this title up, then I would hold off until it drops to the $20 dollar mark.

    Rather disappointing. A lot of the strategic edge has been stripped away from the gameplay and there is no new content or bonus features to entice PC gamers to reinvest in a new copy.

    While the Super Collapse 3 borrows on ideas from everything from Tetris to Bubble Bobble, it does a great job of maintaining its own identity with a color and charm that is wholly unique and a great additional to anyone’s PSP library of casual games.

    The Sims 3 for the Xbox 360 retails for roughly 60 dollars, about average for a 360 game, and can provide endless hours of entertainment, provided you enjoy the genre. It's not a perfect port of the original, so if you have access to a PC gaming system, I would still suggest that you stick with the original Sims 3 for the best experience. If you don't, however, the 360 port really isn't shabby and is probably the closest you're going to get to the original, so go ahead and give it a shot.

    Dungeon Siege III might not be the best dungeon crawler ever to have graces the world of gaming – but it is a very accessible introduction for those who might be new to the genre.

    Ultimately, this is a great game and easily worth the $10 you have to sacrifice to land a copy of it.

    The White Wolf of Icicle Creek is a better and longer game than either of the last two Nancy Drew titles and is probably worth getting if you enjoyed the other games in the series.

    You can expect 20-25 hours of gameplay from Legacy of Goku II. It’s all standard adventure gaming stuff with a dash of RPG thrown in to spice things up.

    For those looking to relive your favorite battles from the Star Wars universe, this is the single-best compilation of battle scenarios going. What it lacks in presentation it makes up for in intense gameplay with plenty of authentic Star Wars flavor.

    Some of his levels are filled with ridiculous amounts of enemies, and even though the levels appear to have multiple stages or sections, there isn’t a checkpoint in sight. I love a challenge, but I hate mindless repetition.

    If you have played any previous Tiger Woods games or play real golf and want something to play in the winter I would recommend this installment.

    The PS2 gets the job done nicely, but without online access to download new songs or even upload the ones you make, it nearly defeats the purpose of the Music Studio and your multiplayer is limited to local head-to-head and four-player co-op.

    Battles can be short and sweet, easy for the pick-up-and-play nature of the system, or you can settle in for countless addictive hours of combat.

    One of the best movie-licensed games I've seen so far this year and I highly recommend it for kids and their parents or anyone just looking for a fun and unique game.

    The game's sound is about what you'd expect, with announcers narrating the fight (albeit with a limited vocabulary) and meaty thumps, while the graphics are fairly good for the iPhone, though the limited facial expressiveness of fighters tends to result in some pretty goofy faces when the camera focuses on a fighter for a knockdown punch. Still, none of this gets in the way of the core gameplay, and can be pretty easily overlooked by someone who's eager to get at the punching.

    It’s highly addictive and just plain fun.
