    While there is plenty of room for improvement this is still one of the few tennis games out there than you can justify spending $60, especially if you love tennis, either in real life, video games, or both. So grab your rackets, lace up your shoes, and get ready to swing your way to number one in the world.

    As long as you don’t expect a riveting simulation or some epic WWI tale, Wings of War is an entertaining, albeit arcade, flight combat game with lots of action spread across a massive campaign with plenty of unique missions, both ground and air.

    NBA Live 08 has come a long way from the catastrophe of 2007.

    Super Swing Golf offers all the challenging gameplay of a game like Hot Shots Golf, and mixes that with charming and colorful Japanese characters and stylized locations that will delight kids and challenge adults.

    While the basic concept that forms the core of this game may still be too simple for some to find entertaining, it still provides a fairly lengthy and fun game with several outstanding qualities.

    All in all, skate is just too different and will have a rough time converting even the most rabid fan of skating games.

    A good family game for rainy days. It is especially good for families with younger kids who wouldn't do well with family games like Scene It.

    Rainbow Six: Vegas is an obvious port from the 360 and regrettably, a broken one. It has a solid and compelling single-player mode that will keep most gamers engaged for a week or two, but once they try to go online and play all those modes they can see in the menus and find they are all broke and full of glitches, most will walk away in disgust and regret.

    And while the genre may feel comparable to games like "SOCOM" and "Ghost Recon," this is truly a unique gameplay experience, both on and offline and the voice-command system is second to none.

    Despite the mere average visuals and sound presentation (music not withstanding), The Golden Compass was a fun adventure and a fantastic gameplay experience that took me the better part of two days to complete.

    I have a feeling that some of the younger set won’t have such an easy time with the shallow, repetitive nature of the racing – especially compared to the similarly priced likes of Burnout 3, Burnout Revenge or Need For Speed Most Wanted.

    A well-made turn-based strategy game with some interesting twists to give a different gameplay style to a sometimes overworked genre.

    Overall I enjoyed the game along with the other people I played it with. The song list is good for the most part and it's easy to pop the game in, get to the song wheel, and start singing.

    Overall I definitely recommend giving Dragon Ball Z: Tenkaichi Tag Team a go.

    A very simple and enjoyable fighting game, that would be every bit as cool with or without the television show license tie-in. We need more games like this.

    Astropop is a charming and colorful puzzle game that mixes things up with some anime-style storytelling and even some space shooter action elements to create an original and engaging gameplay experience that will delight young and old alike for months to come.

    While I appreciated the Cliff’s Notes abbreviated style of gameplay, I still wish there had been more use of the school locations and more periods of interaction between the characters.

    The combat and diplomacy features work well and are involved enough to be interesting but does not dominate over other areas of the game. Overall 1701 A.D. is a very good city building simulation game and very fun to play.

    QuickSpot was a fantastic surprise. I hadn’t even heard of the game until the day it showed up for review, and it only took me ten minutes before I was hopefully hooked.

    This score is for the Metallica fans who will be buying this game regardless of what I have to say, and hopefully the next Guitar Hero installment will continue to improve the technical side of things why offering some music more appealing to the masses and not just a niche group of hard rockers.

    A deep and rich strategy experience, and for a mere handful of Microsoft points, it can be a welcome addition to any player’s arcade who is willing to spend some time learning the few simple rules of this timed release gaming experience.

    It might not play as nice as the console version but this is the best skateboard app that can currently fit in your pocket.

    With a strong community, excellent developer support and MP support, Pacific Fighters looks to be soaring high for years to come.

    There is something undeniably fun about miniature golf, even on the Xbox 360 and even when it's so crazy it no longer seems like golf.

    It’s easy to learn and difficult to master, but the experience you have from beginning to end will be challenging and rewarding.

    I really enjoyed the innovative rules and challenges in the Medal mode, and the World Tour offered just as much excitement (for me) as any official World Cup game.

    While I still wish I was playing this game on a true next-gen system I have to admit that A2M and LucasArts has spun this adventure onto the Wii with some awesome interactive controls that have me feeling more like Indy than any other game in the franchise.

    For a lot of younger gamers it might be too simple a premise, but if you give the trial version a shot you should find enough challenging gameplay here to warrant a purchase.

    The game as a whole is average. The graphics are superb, but the lack of a tutorial mode hurts the game, but once you figure things out it can become quite addictive and even a bit challenging.
