    As a game, it's slightly above average--an interesting combination of puzzle-solving and action that's plagued with camera issues and poor difficulty tuning.

    Even with the graphical faults and the general lack of innovation over its predecessor, Battle for Naboo is still a fun mission-based shooter, as well as one of the best Episode I titles to hit the market yet.

    Electroplankton is an interesting experiment in both music and game design, but its reliance on the novelty of something different limits its lasting value.

    Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree is a simple collection of brain teasers that are different enough from the other minigame collections on the Wii to make it worth playing.

    Tiger Woods takes good advantage of the capabilities of the DS, and it's easily the most technically accomplished handheld golf game to date.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    Like the console versions, Goblet of Fire on the PSP is a worthwhile platforming experience for Potter fans--but the newly included minigames don't add much value.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    It's got some very good qualities, but you'll need to wade through a lot of potential frustrations to enjoy them.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    There's enough meat on Burnout's bones to provide an engaging, albeit unoriginal, take on arcade racing.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    It isn't the deepest game in the world, and some may find the gameplay repetitive over time, but the gameplay works well and the game's presentation is passable, too. If you're interested in some light puzzle-solving mixed with even lighter platforming, Sabre Wulf fits the bill.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    If you can find friends to play with, and can tolerate the long load times, there's some sturdy brawling to be had here.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    A good expansion to the original game. It's true that the new missions feel like ones you've already played before, and it's also true that major micromanagement and AI problems--again--rear their ugly heads.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    Takes no big chances with the genre's rules--it's strictly stealth-by-numbers that's highly reminiscent of last year's "Splinter Cell"--but it's a well-made and entertaining game all the same.

    • 73 Critic Score
    Evil Genius is hampered by some frustratingly haphazard pacing as well as issues with the artificial intelligence of your minions.

    FIFA 07 plays an enjoyable game of soccer, but it feels unfinished in places and isn't as easy to recommend as its home-console counterparts.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    Dyed-in-the-wool simmers will appreciate the game's stats-focused gameplay, as well as its comprehensive online mode, but anyone who's accustomed to the wealth of play animations and broadcast-style nuances found in other games will find this one a snoozer by comparison.

    While you'll undoubtedly enjoy the imaginative artwork, you might end up disappointed with just how straightforward the underlying game really is.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    While the game is still charming and fun, it's practically identical to the first game, and on top of that, it's even easier than the original, making it more of a time-consumer than an actual challenge.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    Combining fantastic graphics and above-average gameplay, Dead or Alive is a fun and challenging fighting game well worth picking up.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    Finally, a video game has come along with the courage to eliminate one of the greatest threats against society today: "Honest" Abe Lincoln.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    It's often frustrating to play, and it's frustrating to see that there's clearly a wonderful game hidden amongst the major bugs, cumbersome controls, questionable AI, and other flaws.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    The rich gameplay and engaging story give the game an appeal that very nearly rises above the rough visuals, and they definitely capture the spirit of the books.

    Seeing the three original Star Wars stories play out as Lego toys is a treat, and the game is also a good action adventure in its own right.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    It's a close contender with all the latest horror-themed action-adventure games for the PlayStation, even though it isn't as engaging or intense as it might have been.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    Monster House for the DS copies the Smash TV formula with mostly positive results.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    It's really a shame that THQ opted to adopt a password feature instead of the battery-save option, because it has added a lot of hassle to what would otherwise be a very fun game.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    The game's real goals aren't exciting enough to carry the game, so once you've unlocked enough levels to be satisfied and gotten the hang of the controls, there really isn't a whole lot more to see. Fans of the genre will be left wanting more.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    Tightens the focus of the gameplay, delivering a rhythm action experience that's entertaining, if a little familiar.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    This is a pretty-looking, short, budget-priced, by-the-numbers futuristic shooter that's most notable for its episodic nature and its old heritage.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    The main problem affecting the Dreamcast port of SoF is the game's ridiculously long loading times. Each game level is broken into numerous smaller stages. Every time you complete a stage, you have to wait more than a minute for the next to load.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    Another dose of the prehistoric shooter action that we've seen in previous installments. It's formulaic but done well enough.
