    Best enjoyed as a party game when you can gather a few friends together. The lack of depth, repetitive nature, and missing online feature of the game hamper its long-term appeal.

    The cooking game concept is off the wall enough to have the potential to be a fun party game, but Cooking Mama is not challenging or deep enough to pull it off. Instead it gives you too much repetition and frustration, kind of like getting stuck eating meatloaf every night.

    It is a bit more accessible to casual gamers who may want to give the game a look if they find that the realism of other games makes playing them too difficult or involved.

    The scaled-down version of the Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter console games is a fun little shooter in its own right.

    The hacking and slashing game is enjoyable enough over short stretches, but you'll inevitably wish that there was more to the game than that.

    I'll summarize this way: If you're a Harry Potter geek then this is a must have. If you're just a gaming geek then you may want to pass.

    What if this game did throw in a standard, nondescript career mode? Would it be worth the price then? What if everything was unlocked to start and it was the same low price? What if it had the career mode, all the unlockables, all the stuff you could get online, all the features ready to go, and even more game modes, all for the same low price? Well then we may be talking about a game that you would be crazy to pass up. Unfortunately that's not the game we have here.

    Ninety-Nine Nights looks fantastic, but it’s not much more than a pretty face.

    It appears that the developers spent all of their time in creating the city and traffic, and the AI and gameplay took a back seat.

    Really, though, at $5.99, I can ignore the game's problems and enjoy it for what it is: a unique idea with some fun "bullet hell" action and a heavy dose of Japanese flair. It isn't the prettiest or the longest game, but I had fun with Acceleration of Suguri: X Edition.

    If you love the show, then you'll probably enjoy the game. Other gamers will probably find it too simple and too short.

    If you live in a place where it is impossible to get either the EA or Sega football games, then you might want to check out GameBreaker. Then again, I would make a road trip instead.

    Pick it up if Mafia II was your favorite game of 2010, otherwise save your game time and Microsoft Points for something more compelling and enjoyable.

    Hunted's flaws, I imagine, won't be forgivable by a good number of the folks who choose to check it out. For those that can look past the warts, though, a truly fun game exists below the surface here. Dungeon crawling is fun, right? Gears of War's cover-based shooting is the cat's pajamas, correct? Right, and Hunted: The Demon's Forge is the diamond in the rough game of the season.

    If stacked wants to play with the big boys, it needs to bring more to the table.

    An homage to "Diablo II" that fails to capture any of the magic that made that game so much fun.

    Sometimes simplistic gameplay can make for a really fun game. This is not one of those times.

    Straight-forward, no nonsense trivia best left to the most diehard of fans of European soccer.

    Match-three gameplay with bonus powers that add a fun twist to the game.

    I do not think that Ryse was an instant classic and must be in your collection, but I do highly recommend it by borrowing from a friend or grabbing on sale.

    If there had been a better variety of enemies and missions and if the story really fleshed out and brought to life a Goldfinger/No power struggle, we could have had the makings of a classic.

    Deadpool proves that even the most random comic book character can have a highly entertaining video game when he is portrayed well.

    You're better off just taking your kids out back and tossing around a real football.

    A game that did not need to be made. Check out "X-Men Legends" instead. You'll thank me later.

    Ferrari Racing Legends is more of a game for the true hardcore fan of Ferrari cars rather than a player looking for a good driving simulator.

    This one's best left to diehard fans that can't bear to let anything Ratchet & Clank pass them by. Everyone else should let it go quietly away into the dark.

    It can have its moments, but a lack of action and exciting mini-games can make Muppet Party Cruise drag on like a bad party.

    Arkanoid DS is a great game for portable play. It's simple enough to lend itself to playing in short sessions while on the go, but challenging enough to bring you back for more play.

    Just right for little girls, but not for anyone else.
