    Take one part classic Call of Duty scripted FPS action, add in two parts improved level design, another one part updated graphics, and just about four parts upgraded multiplayer and you've got the ultimate Call of Duty stew.

    While there is an interesting mix between mini games and the alchemy system, the game is simply too short and enemies aren’t much of a challenge to beat.

    This is without a doubt the most fun DBZ game ever. Not only is it the only DBZ game that really recaptures the feel of the anime, but it is fun to play for DBZ fans and non-fans alike. The Wii controls are amazing when you get past the rough learning curve.

    Beautifully presented with a fairly interesting story and fun cast of characters to interact with but it lacks a bit in terms of gameplay content. [JPN Import]

    What made me love this game is the battle system.

    It's nice to look at, pleasant on the ears, and fun to play. Yet at the same time it's over before players even have time to appreciate its qualities.

    A great, if not short, game that anyone who liked the movie and who owns a 360, or any other console for that matter, will certainly enjoy.

    The ten year old puzzles are still there, graphics are the same mostly, and you still have to use ribbons to save. On the other hand door and cutscenes can be skipped, loading in between areas is almost instantaneous, and DS frills are fun. [JPN Import]

    Graphically the DS version is only slightly better, but nothing that you will even notice unless you put them side by side. The one crucial advantage that the DS version holds over the GBA one is that it sounds much better. [JPN Import]

    Odama is a rare treat of a game as it's unique, extremely playable, and a lot of fun. If you can get past the wacky difficulty that isn't consistent from level to level and don't mind a game being a short 5ish hours then you're in for a treat.

    A huge rpg (even longer than the first, which was already 60+ hours) that lights up a system nearly deceased at this point in time. [JPN Import]

    Black is much like Criterion’s first "Burnout" game. The groundwork is there but the content is really lacking.

    It doesn't take any time to learn how to play. You can spend a lot of time playing with each species, but it's easy to burn out on the game if you play it constantly right after you buy it.

    For some reason when you go online the graphics get downgraded, weapons are changed, and unlike the PC version it only supports 8 players.

    Multipreyer (ugh) utilizes the unique level design, gravity manipulation and portals that you enjoy in singlepreyer and should provide hours of enjoyment, which is a good thing because youll find yourself finishing the game in about eight hours.

    But what you really get is an all-encompassing Monkey Ball experience that rivals what is offered on consoles. Though a few modes are missing, a few more have been added to supplement them. [JPN Import]

    The game ruthlessly steals from Advance Wars and behaves like its sadistic brother, but this shouldn’t be looked down upon. The game is a realist update for the genre and adds features that fans have been clamoring for.

    If you’re looking for an arcade like shooter with an overhead camera and around 6 hours of gameplay then Killzone: Liberation is your ticket.

    Hidden secrets make exploring optional areas much more rewarding, and with the way the game is set up, that ends up being a very important thing. I would recommend this to anyone who is willing to be challenged by a good platformer, as the game fulfills every requirement of a well designed and lovingly crafted action game and more.

    A great looking, fast paced action shooter if not for the strategy element in between but, in my opinion its always good to have something new and the maps offer a little challenge when you first play them. [JPN Import]

    All in all quite a satisfying experience, although a bit short.

    The second episode features a few interesting characters, a fun story and the usual Sam and Max humor.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    It's good for a few laughs, and it actually seems slightly better animated than the last two (at least to me, maybe Sam and Max made me crazy). If you liked the first two episodes, you'll love this one, i can assure you of that.

    Parappa has aged well, with the storyline and music still as amusing as ever. The simplistic game play is still fun, although the game feels shorter now that it did in its original release, mainly due to all the other rhythm games released since that time offering more content.

    The story is also rather mundane and redundent in today's times. But with an action-rpg heart, it is to be expected and is natural for a player to just ignore any story and to focus on the objectives and the fighting.

    It’s a well constructed game that lacks in the gameplay department. The atmosphere and story presentation alone garner a rental but the length and fighting make it nothing more than a rental.

    Although there are times where you may just smash the PSP out of frustration (I bit my PSP), the game of course offers very many puzzles that will keep you thinking and will be more than rewarding on its part.

    While Geometry Wars is simple in nature, it’s definitely a well thought out and executed puzzle shooter that fans of Asteroids and other 80s classics will enjoy.

    Despite the lackluster gameplay, Loco Roco does have one thing going for it: charm. The flash-looking graphics are extremely impressive in art design and from a technological standpoint as the visuals just look incredible on the PSP screen. [JPN Import]

    A very fun game that has a lot of polish and a lot of sequel potential.
