    I am not going to lie to you, I got so bored playing this game by myself that I didn’t finish it.

    As I stated earlier, this entry into the Harry Potter video game franchise is not broken (except for the music). The game functions well, and even looks pretty good, but there is very little incentive to play. The combat can be frustrating, it's the worst translation of the story among all the different media that it is currently available on and the music is simply non-existent (for me anyway).

    Ace Tennis 2010 HD has the potential to be a seriously good tennis game for the iPad if Eurocenter can only fix the issues with the controls and tweak their online code for smoother Wi-Fi gameplay.

    The game isn’t that long and it’s also an easy game to play thanks to plentiful weapons, ammo, and power-ups. You seldom even worry about dying unless you are totally careless.

    It's not that Herbie is a bad game; it's just way too simple and way too short to hold your interest, and your money could be better spent on any of several other GBA games out there, racing or otherwise.

    There are 30 songs available in the game yet less than half are really suited for dancing or at least the intense dancing that DDR and Dance Central has made us come to expect. The sound quality is awesome, but sadly, all the best dance songs are also the hardest and most difficult to play, let alone master.

    The PC version is definitely preferred over the console versions with better graphics, shorter load times, and a $10 savings off the retail price. Play with a controller and you'll be playing the 360 version that all Xbox owners wish they could be playing.

    Realistically this game's primary audience is for the younger gamers, but even adults could find some fun here if they look hard. The crashing problems really detracted from the game, though, and for that I can't really make a strong recommendation for this title.

    The result for the end user however is a mixture of frustration and bemusement, but even during its most redundant moments, one can sense brimming potential in this game, and it would not be too far fetched to imagine a whole new franchise based upon Nick Delios mystery adventures.

    If you want a decent space sim with some strategy, I would go with "X2: The Threat." Universal Combat, as a whole, is not worth the effort it demands.

    About as much fun as playing in traffic. Avoid this game like a speed trap.

    After a fun setup and character introduction, the game degenerates into one long, flat repetition of horizontal sweeps and annoying bosses.

    The ambience and Burton-esque feel of the game is present and well accounted for in the music, storyline, and character voices. In fact, it’d be good enough to make another film out of it all. Too bad you’re supposed to play it rather than watch it.

    Underdone graphics and sound that does everything except what it should dampen the already uninspired, copycat gameplay.

    Adults will want something that feels less childish to play, and kids will want a game that is less demanding in terms of micro-management.

    I loved this game on the Xbox but this is totally unacceptable and an excercise in extreme and total frustration. Unless you are a Zen master avoid this game like the proverbial plague.

    If you can't get enough of these types of adventure games, well, you're in luck. Sacred Rings delivers the age-old formula that began with Myst, once again. If you're looking for innovation in the world of action adventure games, you're out of luck with Sacred Rings.

    Brigade E5 has the biggest choice of weapons and equipment I have seen in any video game and it is all usable. That in itself says a lot toward the game and its potential even though it does have some larger problems.

    Without a good story, interesting characters, a good design or enveloping world, Romancing Saga fails as an RPG.

    Atelier Iris 2 just goes to show that RPG gamers are going to have to become a little more discerning with what they buy. Either that, or be happy with the occasional turd.

    The levels that had the most polish and the enemies that went along with them were on display at E3 a year ago. Everything else is not nearly so well rendered or animated.

    The game is so cliché ridden that it is not even funny like Doc’s snarl and eye patch or the theme music you have heard in about every western on TV or at the movies.

    If you have the patience of a Buddhist monk then give Legend a shot, otherwise avoid this annoying title or you might just hit someone or something important when you throw your DS across the room in frustration.

    For true fans of adventure games Barrow Hill: Curse of the Ancient Stones is a fairly decent game but nothing much for gamers in general.

    And while Sony does take an interesting new approach to the basketball genre, I simply cannot recommend NBA 07 at full retail price.

    While Atlantis Quest is not the most innovative or fun puzzle game out there, it does a decent job as a game designed to pass the time and keep you occupied for a little while.

    The sixty minutes it takes to finish the five short levels isn’t worth the investment.

    There is a fun and compelling multiplayer game lurking beneath the mindless combat and level grinding that boasts a few subtle nods toward Diablo, but you don’t want to play this alone and you don’t want to have four people paying full price for what is arguably a budget-quality title.

    NFL Tour is all fluff and no substance.

    While the game packs some potential, the constant barrage of technical glitches renders it all but unplayable and leave it feeling like an unfinished work that was rushed to the shelves a month or two too soon.
