    An enjoyable change of pace and presents enough atmosphere, and solid gameplay to entertain, just don't expect any of it to be easy.

    Gun
    It's disappointing to be sure, because when you get right down to it, this could be an absolutely excellent game. With better graphics and a tad longer story this game might have been a contender game of the year in some category or another.

    Mot without fault, but at the same time not without progress.

    As far as shooters are concerned, Söldner-X 2: Final Prototype is very pick-up-and-play friendly.

    The whole 16-bit SNES thing may be a little overdone these days, but Terraria captures the vibe of that era so perfectly that it's almost impossible to not love its aesthetic. A pleasing aesthetic, however, does not a great game make. You need to have compelling gameplay as well, and — while I can certainly see where some people may disagree with me on this — Terraria just doesn't have that.

    A poorly done camera is the only true blemish on what is a fantastic game.

    A USB keyboard plugged into your PS2 is the only way to communicate online. This makes getting a group together and executing all but the very simplest of missions a ponderous exercise.

    I'm glad the game actually came out, and I hope that Tecmo uses it as a stepping-stone for a better game in the near future.

    The extremely dedicated, and perhaps a bit masochistic, will absolutely adore Jak X's lengthy and varied single-player, however frustrating it may be.

    A solid, if standard platformer if you have some appreciation for Scooby-Doo or if you're looking for a game for the kids.

    Ty's game play is simple to pick up and play, while it merits enough challenge to make even veteran platform junkies scratch their heads for a bit.

    For folks who haven’t endured the phenomenon of HP, you’ll need to start from the beginning before picking this one up.

    While it is an improvement in almost every aspect from controls to options, it still isn't close to what fans of stock cars want to see from their beloved franchise.

    Improved visuals, spruced up game play, and in-depth online play that will keep any fan of the collegiate games very happy indeed.

    The game isn’t about guns, action, blood and mayhem. It’s a game dealing with stealth in its purest form.

    It's fun enough for most adults to enjoy (admittedly in limited doses) and simple enough for most kids to grasp. The opportunity for interaction among family or friends makes Shrek 2 more than the sum of its parts.

    If you can get past some of MVP’s fielding glitches, and appreciate this offensive driven baseball title, then you will be in for a delightful surprise this season.

    It is true that NCAA Basketball 09 isn't a perfect basketball sim, but what it brings to the table is pure enjoyment for any fan that enjoys watching these kids bust their butts every week and not get paid for it.

    Even being a major horror fan and enjoying the fact that someone has created a horror themed platformer, I have a hard time believing this is going to find a core audience that shares my views about the game and its content.

    The animations are disappointing. Shooting someone should offer some satisfaction, but in SOCOM the dead man just slumps over.

    It’s this lack of real replay and major feeling of linearity that I feel many will be turned off sooner than later.

    If you haven't bought a Worms game yet this generation and don't mind dropping $15, Worms 2: Armaggedon won't disappoint.

    Enjoyment of the X Collection will hinge on whether you enjoyed these games in the first place, because there isn't much content to be found aside from art galleries. But fans of the series and those who like the sort of action Mega Man provides will be very happy.

    There are better platforms to have this on, sure, but if you're looking to try the game out for the first time there's nothing wrong with choosing this as your platform of choice.

    If you've never played the first one, Redeemer is an entertaining, but repetitive, beat-em up action game with lots of style. But if you've played Hunter already, you'll be wishing the time between games had been used to make Redeemer a little deeper and more interesting than this repetitive slash-fest.

    Saw
    The game should take you anywhere from 6 to 10 hours to complete, depending on your willingness to see every nook and cranny of the game. You also are privy to two endings in the game, and thankfully the game saves right before your final decision so you can witness both endings without necessarily taking another trip through the game.

    In the end, W & G does what it set out to do, and in that, respect is a very solid title.

    While it may not sport the latest in eye candy, the game still delivers in the department that matters most – gameplay.

    So while I definitely enjoy playing an updated classic on the DS, it just doesn't hold up as well against other recent, and successful revitalizations of older series.
