    When all is said and done, Tales of the Abyss will most likely find a home on the shelves of Tales fans, but it doesn't seem like this will be the game that makes Tales a mainstream RPG brand in the US.

    With over 150 levels and boss stages, there's enough variety to keep things interesting, and old-school players will feel right at home with the familiar and mostly untouched format of the past.

    It's cheap ($3.95), quirky, flashy, and relatively fun. But I wouldn't recommend it in long doses, especially with most of the replay value cut.

    A booster pack that adds just enough to satiate hunger before a proper expansion is released. All BF2142 owners should own this. Cheap price, too.

    Ultimately, Ubersoldier falls prey to its own popular genre. Ubersoldier just doesn't contribute anything to FPS' as a whole, and many features of the game are indistinguishable from a title two years older.

    In the end, Rush for Berlin is still quite enjoyable despite its flaws and should be credited with making a good effort, especially since it could have easily been mislabeled as just another generic World War II title.

    A deep and rewarding experience for players who are genuinely captivated by the title's unique approach and also have some interest in the UEFA itself, but a mediocre and oftentimes clunky game to those who fall below the category of aficionado.

    The first installment to SiN Episodes is really a tossup between wanting to know what happens next or completely quitting right away, because the gameplay is getting too old.

    A shiny port of a PC game marred by balance issues and a control scheme that is fun to use in the smaller battles, but becomes an obstacle in the larger ones.

    A fun title that manages to overcome its shortcomings by simply being entertaining.

    Ford Bold Moves Street Racing, in spite of its faults, will offer some good hours of racing fun.

    Red Steel is a good first try for Ubisoft in the arena of Wii shooting games, and the new, unique experience of actually being physically involved with the in-game action may be all that is needed to overcome some of the weaker aspects of the title for some gamers.

    The game bridges the gap between SimCity 4 and whatever comes next. It's a decent city simulation game but suffers from a poor tutorial, some shaky gameplay mechanics and little to no replayability.

    Solid gameplay, which you'd expect at this point in the series' life, but it just doesn't bring enough new or innovative features to keep you interested, especially with a competitor as good as skate.

    Great visuals, unique WWII-era storytelling, and explode-and-run fun made me love the game, but the shooting, driving, climbing, and stealth gameplay made me want to choke myself. The game improves with time and is enjoyable, overall.

    Glory Days 2 is a fun game, but it’s not great. Like a lot of older arcade titles, this one is fun to play, but you wouldn’t name it a masterpiece, or even a great game. With a few friends to play with it definitely goes up a notch.

    As an XBLA title, it is solid, but its lack of depth and variety prevents it from becoming a heavy hitter. The game needs more, just not more of the same old stuff.

    If you're looking for a game to play and you've got a friend who can sit on your couch and play it, then grab it. If you don't have a friend to play it with you, leave it alone.

    To view this package as a whole, it's not the most amazing thing in the world. A weak plot, been-there done-that cutscenes, semi-generic weapons, and a view perspective that has been rarely seen since 1990 make it sound worse than it really is.

    If you're new to the land of Puzzle Fighter (or Buster Bros.) it's worth checking out, and if you've played them all before back in the day it's still worth checking out. As long as you enjoy the old-school puzzle games, you'll enjoy this one.

    Even for a tie-in game, SC does a pretty good job of being fun. Some of the game missions are repetitve, but kids will love it. Not recommended for experienced gamers or those who hate cutesy things.

    Although it is in every way a simplistic take on often-recycled game concepts and mechanics, Where the Wild Things Are is still an enjoyable platform adventure that will keep many players - children and adults alike - interested until the end.

    Truly a unique and enjoyable game. An interesting risk/reward system that permeates all facets of the gameplay breeds hectic, brawl-happy fun. With some polish and a better front-end experience, Plain Sight would approach must-buy status.

    The final product of Star Wars Republic Commando is one that tops any other Lucas Arts game in recent years. Although the meager campaign of ten hours is shorter than I would have liked, I still enjoyed the majority of the time I spent blasting battle droids.

    If you're a veteran of the series and you want something new, there are a few new options and some sprucing up compared to past games, but this isn't the end-all-be-all for the franchise, and the customization really isn't implemented as well as it could be.

    A solid turn-based strategy game a notch above similar titles due to the game's presentation and the difficulty. Doesn't hurt that the visuals are nice and the gameplay is approachable too.

    With frame rate issues and graphics that don't come close to the visual splendor of the Xbox 360's on one side, and all the bonus content plus a fun multiplayer mode on the other, Lost Planet PS3 might just be for you.
