    If you’re a point and click game nut, then add an extra point to all of the scores. The game offers an easy to use control scheme, good graphics, above average music and an interesting story. For gamers that just don’t have the patience anymore for a point and click game, then this definitely isn’t your game.

    Safe, sterile and redundant.

    Unfortunately, the PS2 port of this title suffers from a blurry visual presentation and occasional slowdown that is not present in the Xbox or Gamecube version.

    Voice recognition, individual career mode, and create a dunk put NBA Shootout on the right path. Improving the player and referee AI will take the journey further.

    Stuntman: Ignition is a leap forward for the series but the game is still a lesson in frustrating trail-and-error gameplay that might not sit well with many gamers.

    If you love Nick cartoons and you have a friend with the game, you will probably love this game. However, if you’re like me and have fond memories of Nickelodeon shows long gone, and detest the button-mashing formula, then you will probably not enjoy this game.

    Eve of Destruction has all the twisted metal action fans of vehicular carnage will love, but its repetitious races and awkward controls just hold back what could have been a great demolition derby game.

    I was pleasantly surprised and then challenged at how well a game based on a movie was playing; good controls and level design make this a good find.

    This is a nice little program, certainly not all that challenging, but delightful for its animation of a benign alien creature and its charming ways.

    The ambience of the game just sets the mood perfectly with its darkness and oppression.

    It’s an old-school brawler with all the right moves and players despite the awkward 360 controller scheme and the seriously flawed online multiplayer mode. Really, consider this $10 or 800 points well spent.

    While the single-player game is fun, the multiplayer cooperative quests are where it really is entertaining.

    It's likely to really impress strict adventure fans - but perhaps feel a little dull to faster paced gamers.

    Away: Shuffle Dungeon has a lot of charm and a great central gameplay system, but the gameplay is too shallow and simple to ever really draw the player in. It’s a cute, simple dungeon crawler with a great gimmick, but unfortunately it never really becomes anything more.

    Very good implementation of a helicopter flight sim, though skimpy on the extra details like mission briefings, alternate gameplay modes, etc.

    Don't get me wrong, I love an engrossing game just as much as the next gamer. But a game like Desktop Tower Defense, a game that is easy to pick up and play for an hour or two with no extended commitment, is a real treat.

    Still somewhat disturbing and suitably creepy, Manhunt 2 still manages to provide a chilling good time on the PSP. With decent controls and loads of stealthy kills, it might still generate plenty of controversy anyway but more mature gamers will find this worth playing if they enjoyed the PS2/Xbox original.

    Vanguard literally drops you into the middle of some truly spectacular and thrilling skirmishes but it also mixes these exciting moments with some really dull ones that slow the action down.

    The fast-paced and intense offense showcases the style of play found in the AFL. Gamers wanting a deep and extensive football experience will be disappointed.

    Mojo! is not going to blow people away with its gameplay. This is rather simple, but addictive. The courses are challenging and the environments are brilliantly designed.

    An exercise in precision attacks that are done easily enough, that is if your hands don't cramp up from all the button pushing.

    If you’re a hardcore strategy gamer craving a deep and involved strategy game then you won’t find it here. Yet if you want to relive the glory days of gaming then don’t miss out in playing Populous again.

    Fairly easy controls that actually respond differently between the different corvette models AND when upgrades are done on the cars. An easy to use setup that racing fans will feel very familiar with.

    The learning curve is high but don’t let that discourage you from picking up Ultimate Ninja 2. My favorite portion of the game is the Ultimate Road story mode; it provided a real purpose to finish the game.

    The real question here is whether or not Bionic Commando lives up to its beloved predecessor. The short answer is no, but that doesn’t mean that action fans won’t have a good time swinging around the city.

    A truly beautiful-looking game, it just lacks originality in storyline and challenge.

    Taking the game for what it offers makes for a nice diversion in the single-player RPG genre. The game has a few failings, certainly, and those occur in repetitious, grinding battle sequences, a storyline that takes a few hits as you move deeper into it, and characters that are a tad flawed. While a lot of the action is managed by the game’s AI, this is still an entertaining vision.

    Though it sets up nicely with a strong storyline, it really just becomes another mission-based shooter game.

    Diner Dash fits right at home on the Nintendo DS and it remains to be one of the most repetitive yet highly addictive games that shouldn’t be missed. The touchscreen features could have been a bit better but compared to the PSP version this one is by far the best portable version of this game.

    Just like the show, Jackass: the Game is a guilty pleasure. It’s sophomoric, lowest-common-denominator entertainment to be sure, but that doesn’t keep it from being fun.
