    While there's nothing here that would warrant picking up this version if you already own the PlayStation 2 or GameCube editions, the Xbox version slightly edges out its brothers.

    Grandia II may not look like much from a technical standpoint--disappointingly, the game actually looks a bit worse than the original Dreamcast version--but its visual design is well done.
    • 64 Metascore

    EX3 may feel a bit rushed in some spots, but overall it's a fun and great-looking fighting game that won't disappoint longtime EX fans.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    A fun, engaging little game, and it will have you running quick cash laps for longer than you'd like to admit--for the purpose of netting the next neat little power-up.

    • 74 Critic Score
    A triumph on the Game Boy Advance, but it's not without its flaws. Given a bit more time to tweak the controls and further polish the graphics, Destination Software could have had a groundbreaking work on its hands.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    War of the Monsters will appeal to anyone with an appreciation for the source material, but aside from its graphics, the game doesn't quite live up to its potential.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    The gameplay mechanics are sound, and there's enough variety in the missions that you won't become bored with either the arcade or campaign mode too quickly.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    It's not for those with short attention spans, but patient players who aren't squeamish should enjoy Sniper Elite's tense and methodically paced action.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    The game's short length is what makes it so engaging...an addictive little game much like "Bejeweled" or "Tetris," but instead of being a puzzle, it's a little adventure that you can lose yourself in for a few minutes at a time.

    Fans of "Tropico" may wish that Frog City had developed a more direct descendant of the original--the mechanics are basically the same, but Tropico 2 is a very different game.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    Fails to live up to the lofty Kojima standards but delivers a technically sound and smooth-playing experience.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    The game offers strong graphics and sound as well as a good variety of modes, but it's held back somewhat by its lack of polish.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    Even though the wingman mechanics and canyon races don't quite pan out, it's still a stylish and enjoyable street racer.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    If you're looking for a game in which you can shoot up or cut up hundreds of ugly aliens for hours on end, you've come to the right place.
    • 76 Metascore

    It's not for those with short attention spans, but patient players who aren't squeamish should enjoy Sniper Elite's tense and methodically paced action.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    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.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    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.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    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.
    • 78 Metascore

    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.
    • 71 Metascore

    Call of Juarez takes few risks with its setting or genre, but it does what it does well enough to be enjoyable.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    Chili Con Carnage is light on depth and fairly brief, but it's a raucous good time all the same.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    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.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    One of the most original and enjoyable racing games to come around in a long time.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    Even though the wingman mechanics and canyon races don't quite pan out, it's still a stylish and enjoyable street racer.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    It's not long on looks, but it's got no shortage of action.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    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.
    • 77 Metascore

    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.
