    There aren't enough courses - six feels more like an appetizer than a gourmet feast - and no obvious expectation of future additions via Xbox Live.

    If you can get past the atrocious camera and shut out the screeching voice acting, there's a pretty neat game waiting for you. Just don't trade in "Ninja Gaiden" to get it, eh?

    The thing is, though, there’s no multiplayer mode in PQ, so you can’t see who can complete a given puzzle faster (other than by playing single-player and uploading your score afterward), but that also means no opportunity for increasing challenge factors.

    Despite the technical limitations, SimCity 2000 remains an enjoyable, challenging way to pass the time. It isn't the direct conversion I'd hoped for, but for twenty bucks, it's plenty sufficient to the task.

    The sense of freedom ultimately serves to highlight the inevitable limitations.

    Despite the small cracks in just about every gameplay function of the game, Gangland still manages to be addictive fun.
    • 76 Metascore

    Translation problems occur in the flight from PC to Xbox, and the smooth style that made Jedi Academy irresistible fun on the PC is now clumsy and awkward.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Definitely worth a look for fans of the series and newcomers alike, but there are better choices out there.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An enjoyable, if heavily formulaic, RPG to get the PSP life cycle kicked off.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A good game... but just barely.
    • 77 Metascore

    Sometimes the graphics were actually surprisingly good, such as the detail on the planes as I gunned them down, or the rust on the vehicles. But other times, like when all the glass windows burst the same, or every office in the game has the same desk, chair and bookshelf, Call of Duty 2 begins to show its age.

    With lackluster sound, generic, objective-based (and painfully straightforward) gameplay, and graphics being the only saving grace (and only half the time at that), it’s difficult to recommend Shellshock as anything more than a rental for fans of the genre.

    Innovates itself into a corner. Tactical RPG fans are going to dig on the creative character development but they'll be the only ones interested in putting up with the awkward controls and even more awkward gridless combat.

    I had an enjoyable time when all was said and done, but the length and general quality of the experience left me wanting more--perhaps the polish only a sequel can deliver.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The sequel raises the bar in the amount of things included, but the awkward use of Dragon Worlds and the Story Mode, not to mention the choppy and average fighting engine, makes this game a fan-only affair.

    Ballers is, sadly, less than the sum of its parts.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Sort of an allegorical comparison to "Inside Drive" itself. It wants to be one of the big boys, and it certainly has the potential to get there, but if you’ll pardon the pun, they both need to spend another year at the college level before they make the jump.

    But if you have played it, or if you still own it, then there’s no gripping reason to reinvest the time—and most importantly, the money—into the Xbox 360 edition.
    • 64 Metascore

    Apes the best parts of "Dark Alliance" without much innovation.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An interesting study of a series in transition, but ultimately not a compelling purchase. KoF 2002 is a failed attempt to recall "KoF '98 Dream Match," and 2003 is, while more accessible to new fans, lacks the eye-candy if not necessarily the depth of newer games like "Guilty Gear X2."

    There are better shooters around, but if you’ve long hankered for vehicular Star Wars mayhem, Battlefront was made for you.
    • 75 Metascore

    Even with some warts, Black & White 2 is still pretty good. Heck, no god is perfect, right?

    All the GBA's power is utilized here to make a truly gorgeous little outing.

    While this game makes "RedCard 2003" look like... I can't even think of a non-offensive comparison... it still hasn't gone quite far enough.

    If you're a hardcore puzzle fan that lives life at Level 9/High 5, or have a buddy to tangle with, Puyo Pop Fever is a worthy purchase.

    Perhaps the biggest change is the smooth, clear graphics.

    Call it the sophomore jinx. A great rookie season had us anticipating more, but MVP needs more work before it can really be considered the Most Valuable Player.
    • 81 Metascore

    Easily the best title in the series and it’s most likely the result of having to cram content in to the final episode.

    For a one man project, Starshatter is a graphical tour-de-force. Infinitely customizable. Once the problem areas are tweaked, Starshatter will shine.

    Ironically, Batman: Rise of Sin Tzu has more extras than many superior games. This title is absolutely stacked; it’s just a shame you won’t want to play for as long as the game could theoretically last.
