    So if you are a Crash Bandicoot fan who happens to own a Wii this is a must have game. But if you are just looking for a great new game to play, this would be a good, but not great, addition to your video game collection.

    The Rise of Cobra is not without its faults, but if you scratch the surface just the slightest you’ll find a surprisingly fun game that will put your reflexes and arcade gaming skills to the ultimate test.

    The best thing I can say about Call of Duty 3 on the Wii is that after playing I actually felt like I had been through a war, both emotionally and physically.

    With a whole new look, updated characters, RPG elements, and a simple but compelling story, Seven Sorrows is truly a futuristic retelling of a classic franchise that will delight veterans of the series and attract a whole new following of would-be adventures.

    Hot Wheels: Beat That! is fun because it doesn’t pretend to be something that it isn’t. It’s enjoyable because it’s fanciful and it is something familiar at the same time.

    All in all, I was much more impressed with the Tomb of Sammon-Mak than I was with the Penal Zone. The Egyptian mystique set a better tone for me than the outer space exploits of a smelly ape, and the fact that the humor was delivered less by puns and wordplay and more by slapstick and gag-humor was a bit more enjoyable to my taste.

    A great puzzle game with a decided twist in its presentation. It may not be accurate in telling your intelligence but it is a fun game and quite a challenge.

    Obviously, MX vs. ATV is not a perfect game, but it does perfectly fill the holes left since Mario Kart’s release all those years ago.

    Hard Evidence is full of the show’s quirky one-liners and retains the shows visual style for a very entertaining environment.

    It is at once intriguing, educating, amusing and ultimately fulfilling.

    Many of the mini-games have a multiplayer mode (accessible from the main menu), which means that up to four can play it at once provided there are enough Wii Remotes with Nunchuks attached--that's even more replay value. On the other hand, if you just thought you "might poke around and check out what people are saying about the game because it looks like it might be sort of fun," you're probably better off waiting for a price drop.

    Like most collections (and like most of life), this is a case of a handful of superstars flanked by quite a few ho-hum efforts that should have been sidelined in favor of better games from a wider array of genres.

    All-in-all, Time Machine: Rogue Pilot does exactly what it sets out to do – provide gamers with a unique match-three experience. The shooting-based gameplay definitely adds a new mechanic to the aging genre, and while I was not all that impressed with the hidden-object minigames, they provided a nice change of pace. Do I think it is better than Puzzle Quest, 7 Wonders, or Bejewled? No. But it is a solid puzzler, and with an MSRP of $6.99, gamers can hardly go wrong.

    It is great to see decent quality games releasing at bargain-basement prices. Flipper Critters might not be the best pinball game on the market, but it is well worth the minimal investment.

    But as far as sound investments go, buying up Final Fantasy XII, Suikoden V, Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne and Dragon Quest VIII will get you a lot more bang for considerably less money -- you might even have enough left over to go grab one of the oft-overlooked Shadow Hearts games.

    Puzzle Agent 2 definitely was a fun experience though I felt that it was over way too fast. Don't get me wrong; I actually really enjoyed the experience and for $10 dollars the price can't be beat. I definitely would look forward to another sequel. Puzzle Agent 2 has the right blend of suspense, puzzle solving, and Minnesota charm; don't you know.

    R.U.S.E. isn't doing anything particularly groundbreaking in the world of RTS, but in the world of console gameplay, it is doing well to stand apart.

    It's a simple game to figure out and it just doesn't feel all that rewarding to play through. There are very few puzzles in it. Most of the time simply exploring an area is passed off as the puzzle. Have the game's developers lost faith in their audience? We want depth, we want frustratingly obtuse symbol puzzles.

    A fun little game that should not be overlooked if one is looking for a cheap yet satisfying game.

    The combat is certainly a bit repetitive, but you don't ever notice it much because it's also a lot of fun - and fun combat is key in a game about a bounty hunter.

    If you’ve enjoyed space sims in the past and don’t mind the simplified combat engine then go for it. With its intuitive controls, attractive graphics, and lofty scope, E&B has a lot to offer the right gamer.

    It’s ribaldry and bathroom humor told with tongue planted firmly in cheek or perhaps hand planted provocatively in pants – take your pick.

    Perhaps my highest compliment is that on a beautiful spring evening, I actually succumbed to the dreaded “one more turn” syndrome. This goes to prove that in a niche market that caters to hardcore stats junkies, Making History is a game every World War strategy fan can enjoy.

    I’m really kind of embarrassed that I’m giving this game such a high score. I thought I was going to hate it, but I really liked it. Now all they need to do is combine the hand motion dancing from this game with a DDR style game to get the full body involved and you’ll have a really hard and involved dancing game on your hands.

    One of the rather useless parts they have added to the game was the clothes, accessories and being able to change your character. I found this to be something that seemed like an addition thrown in to try and add value to the game, but who wants to spend time picking out a new outfit when you could be racing.

    Any fan of the legendary Rocky movies will no doubt get a kick out of hearing the familiar music behind the memorable characters in the series so well represented in this game.

    There really is a solid game here – it just that the timing is all off.

    A surprisingly addictive and enjoyable game that starts off rather slow, and then quickly sucks the gamer in with its high-intensity tower defense gameplay.

    A great expansion to the base game Zoo Tycoon 2. The additional animals as well as features like training your new animals and having them perform for your guests is great. The added zoo locations and landscaping features make for more variety and a better looking zoo for you to build.

    It all gets kind of boring about halfway through, especially after those hallucinations make you a little too dizzy.
