    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.

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

    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.

    Ballers is, sadly, less than the sum of its parts.

    A good game... but just barely.

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

    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.

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

    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.

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

    If the fatigue bug had been fixed the way EA promised it would be, and the game had the same options that other versions had, I’d give the game the same score I gave last year's version: a 7. As it stands, with the lack of features, the lack of innovation with the game play and the higher price tag; I don’t feel comfortable giving this game anything higher than a 5.

    It just doesn't have heart.
    • 79 Metascore

    Perhaps worth a rental to R-Type junkies and those who love a solid 2D shooter, but nothing is really new here... and maybe that's the point.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    There are certainly the trappings of an epic fantasy game here, but lack of attention to latecomers to the series and horrid pacing and voice acting drag this game down to something that's fun to play if you can get the story out of the way and can get a solid grasp on the control scheme.

    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.

    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.

    A solid game, but largely derivative. Pick it up if you haven't played the first.

    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.

    The fighter missions get repetitive; everything else is too varied for its own good.

    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.

    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.

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

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

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

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

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

    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.

    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.

    A game caught between markets. Gamers who want a pure FPS shooter have much better options to look into. Gamers who want tactical, squad based shooters will consider this a watered down, arcade version of the genre.

    These treasures are glass jewels in tin settings.
