    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.

    The unfortunate choice to leave out mini-games, the great Campus Legend mode and some extra goodies is upsetting but what we have here is a football game that doesn’t disappoint when it comes to the college football scene.

    The gameplay is somewhat lacking, more because of the limitations of the medium, than the game itself.

    I am a stat-junky, so Infinite Space instantly struck a chord with me. I desperately want to love it. It has a likable cast of characters, an amazing amount of gear to play with, and a story with just enough intrigue to lure you forward.

    This is not the prestigious resuscitation of the series I had hoped for. There are valiant moments of glory that shine through the debris, although they are always burdened by mechanical gameplay and shallow characters that expect you to care without reason.

    Whatever you do, don’t lose your palace or else it’s game over. Hire secret police, win over the militarists and build up army as the KB, the CIA and rebels will make several assassination attempts to call the end of your reign. It’s this type of problem solving that makes Tropico 3 a rich title with plenty of things to do.

    Devilishly fun for the first couple hours. Hours three through ten, however, tend to drag on.

    Etrian Odyssey is best suited for gamers seeking an abundance of ultra-challenging Pokemon-style battles without a single Pocket Monster to speak of.

    This is more entertaining than Free Time and the apartment roommate element spices it up a touch.

    Fusionfall is an ambitious idea that may not have hit all the marks, but this is a solid first effort in an untapped market - a children's MMORPG.

    With a lack of game types and replay value, Raskulls is a once-through puzzle-platformer that satisfies upon first impressions but fails to hold the attention beyond the first hour of play.

    A nice collection, though a little skimpy. Similar items can be downloaded off fan sites for free, but this game provides the underscoring meshes needed to make some of those work correctly.

    While extremely addictive, the lack of originality, lack of any recognizable structure, and lack of even the most cursory story line, makes this a mediocre game at best.

    RTS fans and newcomers alike can pick it up, play it, and enjoy it. Accessibility is its greatest asset, and while there’s no denying the fun, there is little to call “outstanding,” either.

    For quick, pick me up & play game, Monster Truck Madness will not disappoint. The 3D graphics are impressive and the racing is smooth & polished. However those gamers looking for a more in-depth racing experience will be disappointed.

    Only gamers who love the genre and all of its repetitive gameplay mechanics should consider buying Aggressive Inline.

    While a very nice and original concept, Uplink will only appeal to a select few.

    There are certainly worse movie-to-game titles, but this one does a decent job of having some fun and providing a coherent story, along with decent gameplay.

    Perhaps the best part is that this game isn't even complete. A whole new game mode is expected to be released sometime in the near future, so you're in fact investing in the game, which already costs practically nothing.

    A decent title that proves to be fun for a while. Unfortunately, it does get repetitive and there probably won’t be much replayability.

    Split between difficulty in play and over complication, Burning Horizon ends up taking the bronze.

    While this title comes up with some interesting new ideas when presenting the realities you travel to, the game itself is just another adventure/puzzle game.

    FATE is a wonderful example of game mechanics, visuals, and level design orchestrated into a cohesive experience. Regrettably, that experience is also very short and anticlimactic. BIT.TRIP FATE isn't my favorite entry in the series, but it is an incredibly unique shooter that is enjoyable while it lasts.

    Lego Star Wars III should easily be the best the series has to offer. With superior graphics and a decent variety of game styles, it easily overcomes any shortcomings in narrative. Unfortunately, the same problems that have plagued previous Lego games are still on display: difficult to control vehicles, overly simplified combat, unresponsive controls, glitches, drawn out levels, and poor guidance.

    How detailed is this title? Well, suffice it to say that it has received FAA approval to be used as a training tool for pilots aiming for commercial certification, instrument rating and airline transport pilot certification...This is not a game for the casual flight sim fan. This title will require a lot of thought, and a lot of effort. For the more serious fan of the genre, this might provide the depth, variety and challenge you are looking for.

    Overall, Batman: The Brave and the Bold is a little too short and simplistic to guarantee any mass appeal, but I got a kick out of its family-friendly approach to Batman and his DC brethren.

    What Droplitz lacks in personality and originality, it makes up for in fun, addictive gameplay. Unfortunately, bit of repetition and a lack of multiplayer keep this one from dropping into must-have territory.

    It’s just not a revolutionary title that will impress you with incredible graphics and fancy features and controls. But how many puzzle games really do that?

    The controls are almost too easy. Some may be disappointed that you are forced to use the analog stick, both when batting and when pitching.

    Overlooking the fact you might have to start from scratch, there is a ton of content to ensure your time spent with the Sims will borderline on the obsessive. The celebrity, rock star and vampire aspects change up the gameplay enough to keep it fresh even for those who have dedicated an unhealthy amount of hours to the game.
