    Fans of the X series may not be prepared to deal with the turn-based nature of the combat in the game, or the unsettling number of encounters they'll have to endure before the game comes to a climax.

    Like "Donkey Konga," Taiko Drum Master ultimately suffers from being a one-trick pony that grows a bit boring after playing the included songs enough times.

    Playing multiplayer against other players that could transform into vehicles would have been something that could be expanded on quite considerably but unfortunately there is nothing at all.

    More of the same? Absolutely, but whether this is a good or a bad thing depends on your enjoyment of the previous games in the series.

    A quality title pitched to something of a niche audience, and a very successful sequel.

    An all too familiar Sega story: a refreshing new take on an old genre, featuring great control, sharp graphics, but crippled by lack of depth.

    There's nothing like towering over a squad of infantry troops in a mech and obliterating them with a flick of your retro rockets rather then wasting ammo. I felt that was a nice touch.

    While the gameplay got at least a thin margin better, the story took a hit with very little meat between the bordering-on-the-ridiculous number of battles and an ending that was clearly designed to get players to buy the next game coming out later in the year.

    It has some good stages and good production values. Unfortunately, when for half the game the player is surly thinking, "Oh no! I'm on the ground again.", it does not speak well for the overall package.

    While the main game in Super Mario 64 DS does seem a bit dated to be a launch title for the Nintendo DS, it is still a fun action/adventure that will satisfy the handful of people that have always wished they could have Super Mario 64 on a handheld.

    Sadly, the bugs I encountered during the game (especially with the way the graphics engine started chugging so severely in the later levels) really hurt my experience, and the action just eventually ended up being reduced to using the same strategy over and over again.

    For the golf aficionado, the play mechanics are going to feel a little dated and the experience is probably going to be less than satisfying. So, for PS2 owners that have had a case of "Mario Golf" envy, this is the game for you.

    If you don't like the idea of having to buy parts and designing your own warship then this game might not be your cup of tea, but if you like the challenge of building the most powerful warship on the high sea to play through numerous diverse missions then this is definitely a game for you.

    With cartoony controls, fast cars, and great multiplayer modes, Midtown Madness 3 is an excellent buy for any Xbox Live player. However, the game is not a shining beacon of single player goodness and racing game enthusiasts without Live support would be better off looking at other titles.

    In fact, what it really reminds me of is the pure, unadulterated, simplistic fun of "Tanarus." And if you know what "Tanarus" is, you’ll know exactly what I mean, and if you don’t go back to watching "Spongebob."

    While the controls and the inability to use the analog stick can be difficult, Bombastic is a solid puzzle game with a lot of different game modes and replay value for people who enjoy a challenge.

    It plays, looks and controls well. It is almost surely never going to have a big following in the USA and I don't think many players will consider it great, but at $20 it definitely delivers your money's worth.

    There are so many spoofs of classic martial arts characters and one-liners that I found myself laughing hysterically. Director Shao Ting seems to be filled with more stupid jokes then just about any character I've seen.

    It's definitely the best translation of the traditional D&D game to the PC format. The incorporation of the D&D 3.5 Edition ruleset is great, and works a lot better that the severely lacking and awkward Ruins Of Myth Drannor, released earlier this year.

    I don't know where all the hype came from, but Wreckless doesn't live up to it.

    Rotastic is a good game that through a couple of poor choices limited its own potential. Its premise is simple but engaging and developer Dancing Dots builds effectively upon that premise throughout the first half of the game. Unfortunately, past that point, unforgiving level design combined with unwieldy controls make for a gaming experience that's ultimately So-So-tastic.

    In the end this is a by the numbers shooter with slick graphics, and ample opportunity to shoot supercharged Nazis. It's not going to win any awards but it's worth checking out if you’re looking for a weekend to pass the time shooting everyone's favorite bad guys.

    In the end Singularity is a decidedly average shooter with a pretty novel storyline.

    Despite a few new twists to the core gameplay, its middling graphics and its lacking features drag it down from what could have been a must buy for fans of ancient era city builders to yet another game that fails to advance the genre in any real and meaningful way.

    Really, it’s not a bad game, and is clearly targeted at the casual market and the younger generation, and considering that audience, it’s at the very least worth a rental.

    Tony Hawk's Proving Ground is a game that is stuck in the rut of its predecessors.

    All the flaws combined don't sink the game as much as they simply make it frustrating to play and for purists the physics will certainly cause eyebrows to raise. Moto GP10/11 is best suited for racing fans who simply want to hop on a bike and go while leaving believability at the door.

    Other than the controls of the weapons and poor aiming model, the great graphics and fantastic voice over work help make Army of Two a solid if unspectacular outing.

    As a campaign inFamous 2 is a sub-par experience, but it makes up for that disappointment plenty with a rich and enjoyable sandbox. It's still recommended that you play through the story for context, but this is a game enjoyed most when you color outside the lines. The flaws in this game would kill any other, but the sense of freedom and strength that come with playing Cole MacGrath outweigh any complaints making this a more than competent experience for anyone looking for a power trip.
