    The sound is pretty standard fare also. The checks and hockey sound effects are boilerplate, not that I’d expect anything else.

    The fighter is elementary and good for it’s young target audience, but not anyone else.

    X-2 comes off as a flashy expansion pack, and not the full fledged sequel promised. The mission-based approach will work for some, but to me, it comes off as a cheap excuse to skimp out on a proper narrative.

    It may not be perfect, but NBA 07 offers a respectful game of b-ball on the PSP.

    Considering it has no competition… Let's Fish! Hooked On is surely the best fishing game available for the PlayStation Vita and fans of the genre (like myself) may enjoy it for a little while. Even with the Vita's bells and whistles however it fails to live up to the Sega-style arcade fishing games of old.

    There's not a lot of content here, and unless you can find regular online opponents, that means it can all start to feel really repetitive pretty quickly.

    While the game doesn't do much in the way of gameplay, the presentation makes up for it.

    Handing on your car feels a bit loose which allows you to lose control of your car far too easily. This is only exacerbated by ridiculously aggressive A.I. once played on any level besides easy.

    The single most irritating aspect of RAW's CAW option, however, is the complete absence of the ability to use ripped songs on the hard drive as part of the wrestler entrance.

    If the gameplay could match the quality of the plot or dialogue options then you'd have a real winner here, but as it stands Alpha Protocol isn't a title I'd want to revisit anytime soon.

    While the options are bigger this year, I thought last year’s game felt more complete in overall game play.

    Even with this new attacking system, the game still falls into the monotonous, repetitive game play that has affected the genre for years. Nightcaster isn’t what you’d call clumsy in terms of game play, just not as precise as you would like.

    Even though the mini-games are too common and unnecessarily repetitive, and the random cartoon nudity isn't worth the effort, the wonderfully insane dialogue and characters are worth taking a trip to Larry's collegiate adventure.

    Like a cowboy at a punk concert, it's awkward and really doesn't belong.

    This game certainly isn't breaking any new ground, neither have the past few that came before it.

    Kudos to Microsoft for trying something new, but if you are to continue this franchise next year, trying focusing on beating out the competition in options and just plain fun.

    While the lack of decent multiplayer is a dim-witted compromise, the Adhoc mode available is quite well featured.

    This title does not appeal to the common entertainment values that the PC gaming community currently holds, but it has taken a stand as a realistic space-trading simulation, and it is for that reason it will not be without an audience.

    On average, a single level doesn't take more than three minutes to finish, and with that in mind, it doesn't take long to factor in that the title doesn't have much longevity...Once you've gone through once, you have done it all.

    If you've got some time to waste, and you're looking for a new RPG, than Nostalgia can fit that bill. However, don't go in with your expectations too high, it's certainly a very average approach to RPG's that's hindered by a slow plot, boring characters, and a very standard approach to combat.

    Feels like a half-baked approach at porting a stellar console title. While giving you a slightly changed story and new characters to work with is a nice approach, the actual gameplay leaves a lot to be desired.

    Unfortunately, no matter how good the core of the game may be, there's no getting around the fact that Curses 'N Chaos' execution leaves something to be desired. Its flaws aren't fatal by any means, and could probably be fixed with a patch or two…but until that actually happens, you're probably safe skipping this game.

    All together, Dynasty Warriors Gundam is a pretty fun diversion for a few hours or so. It definitely has a long shelf life in your collection, as long as you don't mind the very repetitive style of gameplay that these types of games often represent.

    The completely over-the-top sense of style and the lack of obvious next generation attributes will work against the success of the game.

    It's not a terrible game of volleyball, it's just boring and easy. After the novelty of the scenery has passed, and I'm not just talking about the beach, the actual volleyball is shallow enough to play with one eye closed.

    Gretzky NHL 06 still has some problems that prevent it from being the definitive portable hockey game - rock-solid framerate, create-a-player and downloadable rosters are still MIA – but it’s still a decent game for hockey fanatics, not to mention the only PSP hockey game this season.

    The edgy style, giant boss battles, big guns, and third-person dino-mauling bits certainly show that Propaganda Games have a lot of respect for what the franchise has meant to its fans, but at the same time it seems they either played it too safe or didn't let it sit in the oven long enough.

    Has a good number of officially licensed drivers, tracks, and tons of customize options. But it also has twitchy steering that might throw players off the track and out of the game.

    If you've got a few friends that feel like playing, then pick it up; it's a pretty solid time waster. However, if you're playing alone, $15 might be a little steep for the asking price, and I'm not sure I'd suggest giving this one a go.

    If you enjoy the first few levels and the repetitiveness of the gameplay and the jokes keep you laughing, you might enjoy the whole thing.
