    For players used to harder-core war games, or who can handle the game having a broader focus than the typical Command & Conquer or Halo Wars, it can be a great buy. For the average gamer, though, it's awfully hard to recommend the game, despite all its depth.

    To summarize my experience with Arctic Stud, I would use the words addicting and revengeful.

    Country music might not float my boat, but I have to imagine that most country fans will really enjoy Karaoke Revolution Country.

    A fantastic game that just doesn’t fit in with the everyday console crowd. It’s a shame because EA-Los Angeles really put their heart into the PS3 version, but the game ultimately stumbles because it’s just too darn complex for the controller crowd. Still, if you can get past the overly difficult HUD and gameplay design, Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3 is one hell of a game.

    InviZimals is a wonderful feat of technology, and the fact that it has pretty good gameplay is an added bonus.

    Part 2 has much more to offer than part 1. The game really picks up in the plot department, and you get to travel to some much more interesting locales. I still feel that the game should have been packaged as one title as opposed to three, but the saga has been enjoyable thus far, and I am excited to begin part 3.

    A great, fun, and family friendly game.

    Still, I do not want to come down too hard on Academy of Champions: Soccer, because the game has delivered a great deal of enjoyment over the past few weeks regardless of the poor controls, dumpy visuals, and boring audio. The on-field action is where it counts, and Academy delivers in spades.

    Take an old franchise - Way of the Samurai - and up its anime influences. Add in a good shot of Kill Bill, wrap it up in David Carradine's Kung Fu TV series and skewer it with The Magnificent Seven. There you have it, Way of the Samurai 3 - Samurai Western.

    It’s annoying however to be traversing through a level and then without any warning or because you were moving too fast you’re thrown to the bottom of the screen and death. I’m all for a challenge, but this kind of punishment simply is not good design.

    I really could not thank EA more for the enhanced Online Everywhere Xbox Live support, and the cool control scheme really injects a big slug of coolness into the game.

    Your potential enjoyment of this title depends entirely upon how much the idea of the peanut butter and chocolate combination of space naval combat and Defense of the Ancients-style gameplay intrigues you. If you're at all curious, it'll be worth the time, but if you're not, there's certainly a dozen other games in the same family waiting for you out there.

    In short, if you liked The Sims Medieval, you're likely to find Pirates & Nobles pretty fun, too-as long as you keep in mind that it's an adventure pack, not an honest-to-goodness expansion. Hopefully, they'll iron out the bugs in upcoming patches, and maybe we'll eventually have the interactive swashbuckling action many of us were looking forward to. In the meantime, this quest pack will do.

    If you enjoyed MySims, then you will enjoy MySims Kingdom more.

    For gamers looking for an old-school experience on their newfangled Xbox 360 they really won't go wrong with Moon Diver, especially if they were fans of the previous Strider games. Like a space-age Castlevania, Moon Diver will kick most any gamers ass – but in an old-school way that feels so good.

    Making a game that is fun to play is what should come first, and The Ship is a game that takes that to heart and doesn't get too ambitious with it.

    I think that the co-op play option really adds a level of replay value if you have a friend willing to blow up some alien scum. All in all, the game delivers an old-school feel in a new school package and it works very well together.

    Ubisoft's spin on Alexander the Great is going to be hit-or-miss with many players, especially with that multiplayer mode. I guess it's the Marine in me that likes the combat aspect of this game, and the wannabe leader in me that likes to lead massive numbers of soldiers to glory or a combination of the two, whichever.

    All the various aspects that make a good game are here; good graphics and sound, interesting and varied missions, realistic damage and overall simulation realism all add to make a good tank simulation.

    So if you have an hour to kill and want to seriously put the hurt on some space zombies I would recommend D.A.R.K for you.

    A great game for an RTS newcomer, if there are any left out there. Also good for the city-builder game fan who wants to move into RTS type games at a leisurely pace.

    For 800ms points ($10), Shuggy might seem like it is a tad overpriced based simply on the screenshots, but I encourage gamers to give the demo a trial run to see if the unique gameplay is as appealing to them as it i to me. Considering the game has over 100 levels and even supports local co-op play, $10 goes a long way.

    All in all, Fading Shadows is a welcome albeit modified blast from the past.

    Taking the story into the past was a nice direction on the part of the writers, and the story and missions are inventive and flow nicely, but the poor performance of Adama tarnishes the overall presentation.

    Even if you have already played this game on another console, I would recommend at least renting this game on the Wii to see how the subtle little details can really add a lot of enjoyment to a slightly cliché gaming genre.

    Not only is this game quite the treat for fans, though, it also holds its own admirably against other action titles available for the system. Though it's no "River City Ransom," think of it as "Metal Slug Lite."

    The gameplay and action do get intense but it does not break any new grounds for video game enthusiasts. [*only Single Player considered]

    Where’s My Pony? offers a fun family adventure, even if it may not be the most original game on the market. The puzzles and controls are easy enough for young kids to figure out and enjoy. This game is a good buy for any little girl who likes the Cabbage Patch Kids or horses.

    As a game that balances so many forms of gameplay successfully, Carmen certainly earns my respect. For younger gamers (especially those with only an Xbox) this is a must buy.
