    Despite some new modes and rules, deep down it's undoubtedly more of the same and definitely targeted at hardcore Dynasty Warriors fans who already own DW4. Given that, it's definitely a quality product.

    Robotron is one of the games that have fared pretty well in these collections, but with the scoreboards and online competition that the Xbox 360 version of the game provides, this Xbox Live Arcade download is at least as good as the original arcade hit.

    Pretty graphics are great to have and all, but everything else about Madden on the 360 feels like a step backward--and one that makes its higher price tag very difficult to justify.

    But ultimately, The Huge Adventure is a fairly basic platformer that doesn't really have some of the innovation of other Game Boy Advance platformers.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    Though its new features may not seem remarkable individually, when put together they comprise a number of interesting new strategies and also let experienced players organize team-based games based on those strategies.

    Call of Juarez takes few risks with its setting or genre, but it does what it does well enough to be enjoyable.

    Chili Con Carnage is light on depth and fairly brief, but it's a raucous good time all the same.

    Soul Reaver fans will find a familiar experience in Blood Omen 2, but the new game lacks the innovation and the surprising drama that made the Soul Reaver series great.

    One of the most original and enjoyable racing games to come around in a long time.

    Even though the wingman mechanics and canyon races don't quite pan out, it's still a stylish and enjoyable street racer.

    It's not long on looks, but it's got no shortage of action.
    • 72 Metascore

    For novice or intermediate golfers who don't mind giving up a few of the features found in previous Links or Microsoft Golf games, it's actually quite a good choice for just $19.95.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    Delivers a good balance of tactical decision making and up-close action that will be most appealing to existing fans of Koei's other beat-'em-up works, but it's simple recipe for mass warfare can create an armchair general out of anyone.

    Gun
    The experience just doesn't last long enough to be savored. Gun's main story missions are exciting, but the main plot is over so quickly that the whole thing just ends up feeling rushed, and the various side missions aren't compelling enough to hold your interest after the end credits roll.

    It's a shame that Titus is forcing Worms fans to pay stand-alone prices for what easily could have been an expansion pack. As it is--those who've never played a Worms game or never got around to picking up "Worms Armageddon" will thoroughly enjoy Worms World Party.

    Combines great gameplay with a fair amount of depth, ultimately making it a game that can be enjoyed by both novice and experienced gamers.
    • 76 Metascore

    The outdoor levels are much more fun and enjoyable than the indoor levels--so much that the game could have been considerably better had there simply been more of the former and less of the latter.

    SWD might seem like some half-baked attempt to cash in on the Star Wars license, though it's actually a competently executed game.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    It's a little rough around the edges, and it doesn't break new ground for 3D platformers, but it gives the series the shot in the arm that Wrath of Cortex failed to, and what it does, it does pretty well.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    A small evolutionary step above what Stormfront did with The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, and players who appreciate that brand of brute-force, hack-and-slash gameplay should find in it a great-looking and enjoyable, if somewhat familiar, experience.

    FlatOut 2 seems a little too slick for its own good in spots, but it still manages to provide plenty of destructive racing fun.

    Blitz on the Xbox 360 is the same addictive, violent game of football that it was last year. But after a year's time, you'd hope for a bit more than a barely touched Xbox port.

    A handful of quirks keep it from being great, but MLB 2K7 is still a very solid baseball game.

    The global war of Battlefield 2 arrives on American shores, and this new booster pack delivers some great new battlefields. With that said, the big question is going to be how many servers will adopt this new content.

    The underlying game... remains quite good and features a strong cast of characters, unusual environments, and some pretty entertaining hack-and-slash combat.
    • 75 Metascore

    Stunning visuals and sounds. The only question is whether you are willing to sit down and play the game, with its continuously redundant nature.

    And like any good puzzle game, Dr. Mario's addictive style of gameplay has stood the test of time; the inclusion of wireless networking capability adds even more value.
    • 69 Metascore

    A solid baseball sim that hasn't had to sacrifice too much in the transition from console to handheld. Diehard simmers will probably be able to forgive the game's stoic atmosphere, since the gameplay and features are deliciously deep.

    Despite some flaws with the combat, Sword of the Stars distills the complex space strategy formula to a slick, streamlined, and enjoyable package.

    While 2002 World Cup offers stadiums and an interface that are specific to the event, the game lacks many of the features found in FIFA 2002, making it difficult to recommend to anyone but World Cup fanatics.
