    A killer combination of awesome controls and realistic details, proving to be much more fun than EA Sports' "Triple Play Baseball."

    An incredibly solid title with plenty to see, do and most importantly, rock out to. Brandishing some stellar new Competitive play concepts (Do or Die, Momentum) not to mention some incredibly creative new stages to play on, Guitar Hero 5 stays true to its franchise roots and rocks just about as hard as anyone could expect it to. With its astounding variety and tried-and-true formula, it's truly hard to find fault with Guitar Hero 5 without resorting to nitpicking.

    In my opinion, Halo 3: ODST is the best Halo game yet. The campaign is shorter than in previous games, but the quality makes for a punchier, action-packed thrill ride from start to finish.

    A masterpiece of cinematic, anime-inspired, science-fiction storytelling, but only if you have the patience (and time) to endure cinemas that can last upwards of 45 minutes.

    With a four-player mode and user-created remixes, the replay value goes through the roof.

    Crackdown is ridiculously fun, and that "Halo 3" beta code may go unused for longer than you think. [Mar 2007, p.88]

    With over 16 levels, three levels of difficulty, and an engaging plot-oriented story rivaling most in-depth RPG games, Astroy Boy: Omega Factor is highly recommended to all. [Sept 2004, p.92]

    RFII isn’t a landmark game or an astoundingly innovative one, but it sure is a lot of fun to play.

    The sensation of speed as you rocket down the mountain will truly rattle your senses, and the exceptional control pays off nicely.

    I was pretty sure that I would get bored with Axe in Face after a level or two, but the introduction of special abilities like the lightning bolt and unique enemies that must be attacked in different ways added variety to the game and kept me hooked for several consecutive hours.

    Super Street Fighter IV is just more of a good thing and fans of the original have plenty of reasons to invest in it. But seasoned players who didn't care for the original SFIV won't have any reason to like the update because, despite the improvements and additions, the fundamental gameplay hasn't changed.

    Some of the new play elements miss the mark, but overall Zero is a long, rewarding night of fright.

    The second installment in Infinite Interactive's popular series of puzzle/RPG hybrids has finally hit iOS devices, and while it shines on the iPad's plentiful screen acreage, it struggles on smaller Apple devices.

    Sound in GT2 is again top notch. The cars sound real, down to minute changes in tone after you make high-powered modifications.

    Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken is a blast to play. A title with a silly premise, satisfying action, plenty of content (15 solo chapters and 10 co-op) and a first rate game presentation is hard not to cluck about.

    With its slick voice-command system, depth of strategy and frenetic action, EndWar is one game I'll still be playing after its evaluation. [Dec 2008, p.96]

    So here's the real question: Does UT3 live up to high bar set by its prestigious predecessors? On a gameplay level, absolutely but on a visual level, it doesn't leave as lasting an impression. If you were a fan of the previous games, particularly the first Unreal Tournament, then UT3 is a definite must-buy.

    It's really pretty incredible how dense this game is.

    Dirt offers a really cool and even moving story for the price of a bottled water. If you want a really interesting way to spend an hour, Dirt is more than worth your time and dollar.

    Considering everything you get with this title -- a solid single player campaign, a diverse multiplayer suite, and just plain fun shooter gameplay -- Section 8: Prejudice is a steal at $15. Just get to it before Nic Cage ruins it.

    If you didn't like the original game, this expansion probably won't change your mind, but if you loved "The Sims," then "Livin' Large" will have you lovin' it even more.

    Even if you played the original Onimusha on the PS2 within an inch of its life, Genma provides enough new elements to merit repeating the adventure. But beware newbies: This game is tough.

    It's not quite the flagship title you might expect for a Nintendo launch, but Luigi's Mansion is still a must-have.

    A fun game with some very noticeable flaws and some less-than-stellar presentation, but in the end it's a memorable adventure I'd certainly recommend to any aspiring roadie. It comes pre-packaged with its fair share of issues, quirks and bugs, but all of the near-misses in the world can't take the fun out of this inspired adventure. [Jan 2010, p.70]

    The gameplay finally matches the graphics, and the result is what basketball fans want and need in a PS2 game.

    Political junkies will almost certainly find themselves sucked in, along with those who have only a smattering of knowledge about the American political process.

    One of the most challenging match-your-fingers-to-the-onscreen-button-presses game since the sub-genre’s conception.

    Offers more multiplayer options than you’ll likely ever use combined with a single-player experience that’s wonderful but somewhat typical. Still, it’s the best PC D&D game ever, bar none.
