    If you are looking for a run-and-gun shooter that doesn’t require a lot of thinking or strategy then look no further.

    While lacking a Joe Pesci-like sense of chaotic brutality and a Sharon Stone-like sexiness, Casino Inc. requires more than just good business sense, it needs a good dose of immorality and aggression for real success.

    For all intents and purposes Law & Order: Justice is Served is a cookie cutter sequel, just more of the same with really marginal improvements.

    If you have a PSP then I’d still recommend getting the first Lumines, the new sequel, or even both. This is a game that is much more suited to portable systems.

    There is also the added value of new levels, gameplay enhancements, and even a complete buried game locked away waiting for you to connect the GBA and GameCube versions.

    While the tropical environment is inviting, and the game honestly isn’t all that bad, it’s a bit expensive for such a short diversion, and most gamers will probably go for something with a little more substance for the same price.

    An adequate port of an outstanding console game.

    Even taken as a standalone game and not a movie tie-in, this latest Shrek adventure is a charming title that is fun, challenging, and perfect for the younger kids.

    A wonderful trip down memory lane; at least for the tables I actually remembered playing.

    Turok is a fun and entertaining game that could have been significantly better.

    The Fast and The Furious is by no means a bad game, but in a genre already flooded with countless racing titles it doesn’t really stand out or do anything new.

    Activision and DreamWorks have another solid movie-licensed game ready for fans of the upcoming film.

    I expect there are a lot of former 2K Hockey fans running to their local used game store to turn NHL 2K9 in for EA's NHL 09... well, in Canada anyway. 2K had such a great product. How could they have possibly made such a huge mess of such a great series?

    Other than the quirky controls, I loved every moment spent with this game.

    Everything you loved about the first game is back and better than before. Sam’s new moves and gadgets are excellent and tightly integrated into the missions so they aren’t there just for the sake of having something new.

    Only a marginal improvement over last year’s game.

    With 3,000 horses and an assortment of gameplay modes and mini-games you won’t be looking anywhere else to satisfy your horse fetish.

    I rather enjoyed my time with this game. It falls short in some areas, namely the less the impressive graphics and the lame sound, but for poker it’s the gameplay that counts. Overall WSOP presents some great challenge, and pile of different game modes and a great multiplayer option via Xbox Live.

    A unique game for a unique type of gamer. If offers a challenging blend of real-time tactics in a 3D action setting reminiscent of "Diablo" and set in the energized world of televised sports and live audiences.

    The gameplay and puzzles are spoon-fed to you in easily swallowed bites, but much like Chinese food, when it’s over you will be full but not terribly satisfied.

    A surprisingly fast paced hard-hitting sports game that'll catch any unsuspecting sports fan's eye.

    I’d hate to play this on anything smaller than the PSP screen. EA seems determined to bring their entire console sports line-up over to the PSP as quickly as possible, but I think in their haste they are letting way too many bugs slip through.

    The selection of vehicles, structured missions objectives, and rewarding bonus system will make this a favorite for anyone who plays it.

    MVP Baseball has all the makings of a great game but it lacks the polish and refinement and just has too many glitches to make a wholehearted recommendation. There’s always next season.

    A refreshing change from the other so-called kiddy games out there and a major surprise considering they chose not to simply port the console game over to the PC.

    Scanning the web, there is no question that a number of Pro Skater veterans are miffed by Ride’s complete overhaul of their series – but then again, those same folks would be similarly unhappy with another rehash of the nine previous releases. It’s nice to see the series take a new direction – but it definitely could stand a bit more tweaking.

    It's a pretty solid wrestling game but if you don't really care about the "legends" you'd probably be better off going with a game from the Smackdown series.

    A purchase is not recommended, however, due to the game’s short length and considerably degraded graphics and gameplay. After all, 50 smackers is a lot to invest in such a short-lived game, especially when it’s an inferior port of a PC title (largely the result of the PS2’s technical limitations).

    The best part about Spider-Man: Web of Shadows is the total freedom you are allowed in not only choosing what to do and when to do it, but also how to do it and what you wear while you're doing it. And when you mix this freedom of gameplay with a massive sprawling city that reaches to the clouds, and an endless supply of intelligent evildoers, there is no end in sight to the superhero action waiting for you in this latest Spider-Man adventure.

    If you enjoy mystery-solving games, or if you like the CSI series, or if you played the other games and enjoyed them, you’ll really enjoy this latest version.
