    The balance between the board game / influence style of play and using cards to turn the tables on an opponent works out extremely well, and the amount of cards that you can get and combinations to add into your decks is impressive.

    "Tetris Attack" evolved. Tenaciously tantalizing the-sky-is-falling gameplay. Meteos is puzzle perfection.

    The game is really fluid and runs at a high frame rate. What I liked about this game is that the weapons that you carry will affect your speed, just like it would in real life.

    When something is put together that, at first look, seems so simple, yet challenges by pumping the intensity level and challenging players to use their reflexes and brain, it qualifies as a game that is a great experience.

    The premier simulation golf game. Its intuitive swing system is more than enough to make this a really good game. But then the developers went and piled as much frosting onto this cake as possible.

    Dribbling, passing and headers are handled beautifully enough and the First Touch Control is a welcome addition that we’d like to see again next year. As for the game’s Career Mode, not only is it comprehensive but it’s also downright addictive.

    The high production values of this game, actually take a back seat to the gameplay and experience, blending in as only one facet of the whole package, as it always should. An outstanding game all the way around.

    Head-On is the first top-of-the-line multiplayer game designed for a handheld. It's vehicular combat at its finest. It's satisfying, but will leave you hungry for another bite.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A tense thriller that will immerse players into that sense of desperation as the remains of the human race fight for survival against increasingly overwhelming odds. The pacing is frenetic, the sense of urgency comes through loud and clear. Resistance 2 is a solid game, that looks stunning, but the game’s length and the linearity of the levels might prove to be a little much for some players.

    Assassin's Creed II is more than a great sequel because it does things the first game couldn't even hope to accomplish. There are tons of surprises in store, so if you enjoyed the original – or even if you only kind of liked it – this is one of those sequels that absolutely must be played.

    While the story was less than original, and players can't customize the central character, Ravensword: the Fallen King is an amazing attempt to bring a console-sized, open-world RPG to the iPhone and iPod Touch. Developer Crescent Moon Games has not only provided an AAA game for Apple's mobile platform, but has raised the bar for portable gaming on any device.

    For those TBS fans out there this will most likely be one of the best games out there. Though it carries a hefty MSRP of about 50 bucks, It is very unlikely that any game will be exactly the same. There is just too much content for that.

    While the game could have used a bigger selection of pop songs (even those that are modified) in the unlockable areas, there is little doubt that the songs offered here are very cool, and a lot of fun to drum along to. This can be an intense workout, but the game is very enjoyable, and it's a certified winner.
