    Madden NFL Arcade does a great job of providing a more casual, arcadey experience for football fans that long for the days that NFL Blitz ruled the arcade football genre many years ago.

    So Guitar Hero On Tour manages to be more than a pimping out of the series and more than just a dumbed-down version of its console cousins.

    If you loved the original, or require the online play, feel free to pick up X-Men legends II; just don't expect more than a continuation of the title you finished a year ago.

    It is also the most convenient form in which FFXI has ever been offered; you don't have a hard drive to buy (unless you got stuck with a core system), and all your expansions come in the same box.

    The 800 point, or $10, price tag is very much worth it for the beefy single-player modes and decent selection of multiplayer modes for when you want to shoot people that are right next to you or over the internet’s tubes.

    A great game. The sound and graphics alone make this title worth checking out; the only problem is that it does little to innovate. The whole game, while exceptionally well done, is just more of the same old WWII action that we have already seen a hundred times before.

    EA Sports did what they could, but it's all about the future now. Rest assured, Madden is probably a good way to finally retire your GameCube and Xbox.

    Despite the repetitive nature of the operations by the end of Trauma Center: Second Opinion, it manages to be a worthwhile single-player experience, and more than any other launch title, it’s a great showcase for the Wii Remote.

    A great game, but telling you this is a must have title is just silly. While the game is extremely well done, there is just not enough here to warrant adding another Tiger game to your collection.

    The replayability of this kind of game is paramount and Ubisoft does not disappoint. In addition to the 100 separate levels included in the packaged game, you can go online to download 11 additional bonus stages each containing 10 levels.

    If you were expecting this second entry in the Layton series to go through extraordinary leaps and bounds, which you really should have no business expecting, then you will be horribly disappointed. But if you were expecting another session of tough puzzles with a convincing story, then Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box is every bit as good as The Curious Village and should be more than enough to satisfy your inner detective.

    The PSP version still holds its own with a good portable game of baseball that may not be great for quick portable action, but anytime you’re able to just sit down and be able to play for a while, MLB 09 fits that style of play very well.

    This game is definitely worth the $40 on value alone, as it took us over 50 hours to beat and could probably be beaten in 40 hours if you know what you’re doing right away.

    If anything, Legend succeeds in assuaging frustration. Puzzles never encroach on the aggravation of yester incarnations due to a RAD (“Remote Analysis Device”) that identifies objects of note. It’s reminiscent of Grim Fandango in the sense that you’re not left to hunt around wildly for the key elements in a conundrum.

    Ratchet & Clank Future: Quest for Booty is certainly up to par for what the previous games have given us in the past, but in a much smaller scale at about three hours to beat, give or take some time depending on your Ratchet experience.

    To put it simply, Street Fighter Alpha Anthology is what you would expect; a complete, comprehensive presentation of the Street Fighter Alpha series. In other words, it will give you some good fighting times, while never representing either the best or the worst of Capcom's work in the genre.
