    Need for Speed Undercover is street racing for the short attention span crowd.

    Older gamers will find the gameplay simply too repetitive and simplistic. A new beginning for Spyro was a good idea, but this game is more of a false start.

    Too short, linear, and easy to recommend on its own merits, Batman Begins is best enjoyed as a rental to be played soon after seeing the movie while you’re still on a Batman high.

    Unfortunately, the fun factor of the card game versus its video game version is an apples to oranges comparison.

    Killer is Dead is probably the weakest Suda51 game that I have played, but it has a very enjoyable combat system that might draw in some players like it did with me.

    You don’t get a real sense of speed and this makes the handling very problematic.

    NBA 09 suffers from not having the proper attention to flesh out the gameplay to represent real basketball.

    A novelty toy that will hold your interest about as long as most novelty toys do.

    When you stop thinking about how much better this game could be and accept it for what it is, you realize it's an enjoyable, story-driven, partial sandbox, space-flight sim that doesn't hold your hand like most current games. But even a space geek may not be able to overlook all of its out-dated and ill-conceived elements.

    NBA '08 can provide its own brand of fun and excitement, but there are too many holes in the on-court action for it to make a championship run.

    It has all of the prerequisites for an amazing game: good graphics, strong fiction to draw upon, and an interesting plot. Unfortunately it stumbles in its execution of gameplay, and not because it tries to hard to do something new.

    Speaking of flying on Saphira, that wasn't nearly as much fun as I thought it would have been and never gave me the idea or feeling of power that must go along with being on such a beast. I really would have liked to see more down with the flying and for better control while flying.

    NBA 07 is best for those looking for a more simple and arcade like basketball game or for those who are looking for a bit more from their sports games than just playing franchise mode all of the time.

    If you’re really into fighters, then you may want to rent the game to check out the novel betting feature, but expect to be disappointed by the game’s relatively simple fight engine. However, overall The Con just doesn’t have enough going for it to suck you in for the long term.

    It's online-only, its expensive and single-player enthusiasts won't find anything to enjoy in this title.

    Spider-Man 3 certainly has its enjoyable moments, but camera issues and repetitive combat keep it from reaching its full potential.

    The world of Gothic 3 is filled with bugs you can not slay.

    If you are an Empire Earth fan, then you'll more than likely enjoy this expansion and appreciate the gameplay provided by the new campaigns.

    While not as hard-core as some tactical FPS, Ghost Recon nevertheless does take a little getting use to if you’re new to this genre.

    The game should be another Puzzle Quest, a game that brilliantly built an RPG around puzzle-based battles, but instead, it's just another Bejeweled knock-off lost in a sea of derivative clones.

    An interesting concept that needs to be backed up with more game.

    Sonic is no longer a good or even passable video game character.

    At least if you play Pokemon Trozei, you'll get essentially the same game with a bunch of funny Pokemon faces to laugh at. Here, you might laugh, but it won't be in a good way.

    Final Fantasy II is an interesting blast from the past for those die hard FF fanatics. Others may not enjoy the fantasy so much thanks to a very odd leveling system.

    The good parts might not be enough to overcome the poor camera and game control.

    Your typical arcade-style button mashing adventure game. It should remind you of playing "X-Men" and "The Simpsons" in the arcade with the way it demands constant repetitive button pushing.

    Simple, straightforward, no thrills gin rummy.

    This add-on isn't without its good points, though. It offers players a place to store their gear (something I felt was sorely missing from the main game) and introduces the arena's master, Mad Moxxi, with a cool, stylish introduction, but overall, this DLC is hampered by its insistence on defying Borderlands' main selling points.

    Kane and Lynch 2 offers more variety in its multiplayer modes this time and even introduces a single player Fragile Alliance, but the main story can get so very repetitive with its lack of variety, making it feel just like another average third person shooter overall.
