    Metro: Last Light improves on a lot of what 2033 left behind.

    I feel kind of icky even suggesting it's not terrible, and I'd be completely mortified to play it in public…but deep down, beneath the stupid, juvenile exterior, there's secretly a game that's kind of worth checking out. But don't tell anyone I said that.

    If you’ve got a group of three additional players to enjoy Wii Party U with, I definitely think it’s worth checking out. As a single-player game there’s not nearly enough to do that would warrant a purchase, and even as a two-player experience it falls a little short.

    For anyone who hasn't given Nintendo's originator of this game style a try, I still would whole heartedly recommend Animal Crossing over Magician's Quest. There is just something about the charm that AC offers that seems to be more inviting to the everyday gamer. On the other hand, if you are like myself and have played Nintendo's versions to death since it's incarnation on the Game Cube, then you will be ecstatic to know that Magician's Quest is as close to a sequel or follow up to AC as you can possibly get.

    Not being a fan of this genre, I found myself engaged in reliving some fond memories of heroes and villains I nearly forgot about.

    A solid game that unfortunately doesn't quite live up its PC counterpart.

    Personally, I don't have any place for a game like this on my shelf when I already have the whole Tony Hawk dynasty. Would I recommend it to my friends that have kids? Surely.

    In short, if classic brick breaking games are your thing, then you should give Hyperballoid HD a chance. With a huge number of levels, almost as many power ups and the inclusion of power downs, Hyperballoid HD is a great way to waste some time.

    Gamers will no doubt enjoy the flexible interface with its different options, not to mention the game as a whole.

    While I do think the mission structure can be a bit dull, I found myself pretty entertained to the end. The inclusion of co-op is a huge plus for me though, as with most games I found everything here to be better when I knew there was another person playing through the same events with me.

    Tremor has done a much better job in porting Railroad Tycoon 2 over to Sega's console than was done with the rather poor PlayStation version.

    I think that despite the cute visuals and simple, beautiful art style, the difficulty curve of Ivy the Kiwi's later stages are going to put off a lot of gamers.

    Exceptionally fun. With a market full of sequels and repeats of ideas (Planet Puzzle League comes to mind), Puchi Puchi Virus breaths a little fresh air into the genre.

    All together, this is a much better Transformers game than the previous movie tie-in, and probably the best Transformers title I've played on a console to date.

    While you might not get as much life out of this as you would your typical Call of Duty or Halo title, I think it's a unique game that really should be experienced by anyone with a passing interest in the Light Gun genre, and I definitely feel like it's worth checking out.

    I definitely think the game is worth checking out, provided the online issues get fixed quickly enough.

    I definitely enjoyed this year's version of the Smackdown vs. Raw series, but I still think that it's time for a serious change of pace.

    With a few technical issues aside, if you are a fan of Battlefield 2, you will still want to grab this expansion; if only for the new weapons, vehicles, and stuff to do.

    The lack of actual innovation is what keeps it from being a stellar title, but it's a game that most RPG's enthusiasts will want to add to their DS library.

    Definitely worth checking out, and Tri-Ace's best effort on current gen systems so far.

    Worth picking up if your trigger finger is itching to blast away at something new, and even if you find yourself bored with the genre, the "Hot Swapping" feature is worth checking out at least once.

    I can't say I understand the appeal, but if constantly burning and suffocating to death from smoke inhalation is your idea of a perfect game, it'll be right up your alley.

    This is a niche game. If you aren't into motorcycles, you can probably pass on this game without too much regret. If you are, you should probably rent it first to find out how it stacks against your particular preferences since it's got elements of simulation as well as elements of arcade style. As for me, it's a trade in.

    This is a fun little romp that captures the feeling of the old school arcade game, while adding some features that keep the game from feeling too dated.

    A long, epic adventure that has a few problems here and there, but still stays entertaining.

    For those who have played the original PC version, I'm sorry to say that the console version just doesn't meet up to it in the end.

    Not only do you have the massively huge missions from the original title, but also included is the Fist Alpha expansion pack that brings on even more weapons, missions, and fun.

    This is the Rock Band game that all the family can easily enjoy. If you’ve been struggling finding a music game that you won’t have to monitor the song list, Lego Rock Band will put your mind at ease.

    In general, the camera is what's keeping Rocketmen from being a ton of fun. But it's still a nice diversion.

    All in all, it was a fun trip though hell, even with one circle being lackluster and the game feeling rather short, I still have no issues or moral objections to recommending Dante's Inferno for fans of this genre.
