    Fans of the Hitman franchise will have a distinct feeling of déja vu. Newcomers should have a good time, though.

    The total package isn't as technically impressive as "MVP," but the lack of major flaws makes it a more enjoyable experience.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    The environments are expansive and varied, and you can interact (read: destroy) virtually anything you come across. The cel-shading effect is put to good use here.

    "NHL 2004" and "ESPN NHL Hockey" are still the cream of the crop, but don't be surprised to see NHL Rivals join them in another year or three.

    The license alone saves the effort from mediocrity.

    A fun, challenging puzzle game with some great ideas and additions.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The fighter missions get repetitive; everything else is too varied for its own good.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A solid game, but largely derivative. Pick it up if you haven't played the first.
    • 62 Metascore

    This would be an OK title worthy of rental (if such a thing were possible for PC), but Warcraft III still blows the game away. Get that instead.

    Showdown isn't a terrible wrestling game, but it isn't a very good one, either. It's an improvement, though, so if using the stars of your youth is a draw, this one is worth a rental.

    Rent or buy, Double Dragon Advance brings a great update but is still too short. You decide.

    Though the game may have its frustrating moments, the amount of assistance the computer gives the player is ridiculous. For example, one "ghost shot" is allowed per hole. What this does is show you exactly how far and where the ball would land (and subsequently bounce) if you got a perfect shot. This is a HUGE help (and very cheap) help with chipping.

    Give it a rent if you're interested, but I'd recommend just renting an old "Ridge Racer" and having a blast with the past--or get another new, better racing game.

    Just a poor shadow of what Myst really is, so most users would be better off skipping it and grabbing the PC/Mac version.

    There's only two puzzlers on DS to date, and Zoo Keeper trumps "Mr. Driller" with the inclusion of single-cart multiplayer. Worth a pickup, if puzzlers are your thing.

    Ultimate Spider-Man is best enjoyed when viewed as a separate path for the franchise, one whose bright graphics and teenybopper storyline add a refreshing parallel to the realist movie versions.
    • 69 Metascore

    Essentially, it's new levels for a pretty decent game, without really bringing anything new to the table for your $19.95.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    This is simply too flawed a title to recommend for purchase, especially in light of the competition, but it's a fantastic guilty pleasure.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Because it’s not a terrible game, especially on a currently under-served platform, there are no really strong arguments I can give to avoid the game.
    • 71 Metascore

    Breakdown was meant for a rental from start to finish, assuming you have a strong stomach to handle the first-person camera. Stick with the game and it can offer plenty of satisfying fun to accompany the initial frustration.
    • 68 Metascore

    Solid, but not spectacular. Even so, I'm tempted to give WTS 2005 brownie points simply because I can play as West Brom without them being in the Premiership. Boing boing!

    All told, ASB 05 hasn't really taken any major steps towards self-improvement, opting instead for a status quo offering.
    • 75 Metascore

    The learning curve is practically a cliff, but enthusiasts will have plenty to get out of this one.

    Taken as just another game, rather than as a part of the larger Bond iconography, it's really a fairly enjoyable time. Rogue Agent doesn't go on the "best ever" list the way "Everything or Nothing" did, but there are worse ways to pass a Saturday afternoon.

    Hardly the social phenomenon on Xbox that it was on PC, but not a bad way to waste a few lazy hours on a Saturday, either.

    Above average- it's just far from amazing.

    When I finished playing Resurrection of Evil, the one question I had was why a bunch of stupid demons are able to consistently own humans on Mars when they are outwitted by a sidestep.

    Gun
    On its own merits, it is hard to justify paying $60 to buy Gun. It is a solid game, but when you can have essentially the same experience on Xbox for less money, I do not see the point in buying it for the Xbox 360.

    A nice update to the series. But especially with the way other historical RTS games have advanced the genre, I was expecting more innovation from the game (and developer) that started it all.

    This is an enjoyable game of football that’s great to watch and play. On the other hand the countless omissions EA left out of this game are maddening.
