    At this point, this is a game that will appeal to fans of the high score and dunks as A.I. and defense did not really show up this year.

    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.

    It's a really solid attempt at bringing an RTS over to the DS.

    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.

    For gamers who just want to shoot, slam, and take it to guys in the paint, this game will more than meet your expectations. If you are looking for a game filled with strategy and intense pressure, you may want to get your hoops action elsewhere.

    The Arcade mode and local 2P action is great, just what I expected from the game, and while the visuals could do with a little sprucing up in comparison to the arcade stuff I've seen, it's not that awful. Not quite as stylized as recent console fighters, but not bad enough that it put me off of having fun with the game. However, if you're going in for story/scenario mode and online play, neither is worth picking the game up for at the moment.

    The older players looking for a tie to the past will probably be happier hiding a dusty Black Knight machine in the basement.

    It’s not sim enough to match up with Sega’s offering, and Midway has a faster, more fun arcade hockey game in NHL Hitz.

    Overall I found this collection to be pretty fun though, but it doesn't do anything that's particularly mind blowing. It's competently put together, contains a fair amount of content for a mini-game collection, and really tosses in the kitchen sink when it comes to summer Olympic events. It'll definitely appeal more to a younger audience, but I think it's worth checking out for 3DS owners.

    To quote some great song titles when suggesting Army of Two: The 40th Day, all I can say is that "One is the loneliest number", and "It's takes two, baby."

    There are too many little things wrong with the strongest part of the game, the flight combat, to completely excuse the weakest parts, the third person missions on foot.

    Very accessible, cheap, and immediately fun; Bit.Trip Void is a fun package for WiiWare to play host to.

    In the end, Rogue Trooper is a technically solid game. It’s intuitive, looks and plays great…but it’s really not all that compelling.

    Really the only nagging problems with the game are the simplistic graphics and the camera, which sometimes refuses to go where you want it. If you're looking for something different from the norm, I highly suggest giving Chibi-Robo a try.

    It's a really solid port, but lacks any bells and whistles to attract folks who might not be die-hard fans of the series. It's definitely worth checking out, but keep in mind that you're getting the same content here that was contained in Sigma on PS3 nearly five years ago.

    It’s unfortunate that Nintendo didn’t release an all-new side scrolling Mario game.

    The control with mouse and keyboard is far superior to the clunky Xbox controller, and Gearbox is already rolling out patches to deal with the framerate issues. As an experience, Halo is something to behold - on the right system, you can pull this game out and slap around your Xbox-owning friends with higher resolutions and better controls. As a game, however, it starts strong and fizzles like a wet firework towards the end.

    Surprisingly fun, for as long as it lasts. It's definitely a step in the right direction for a licensed game based on a kids cartoon, and at the budget price of $20 it's not a bad idea to check it out.

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

    A little less hand holding when it comes to map exploration would have made the experience a tad more interesting for me, and while I can't deny that the visuals look nice, the effect being used is certainly starting to get a little tired the more I see it pop up in digital releases.

    There's no multiplayer or co-op, and little to see outside of the main story mode, but it's something people of any age could pick up and enjoy.

    Of course, the same — that Atomic Ninjas is a lot of fun when everything works the way it's supposed to — could be said for pretty much any game ever, which means that this is hardly the most glowing recommendation imaginable. But, really, that's the point: Atomic Ninjas is fun, but not the sort of game that deserves an unqualified rave.

    Space Invaders needs no further justification for ownership.

    Even with graphics that fall below the expectations of the current generation of hardware, Armored Core 4 is a fun way to make machines to the dirty work.

    Controls are rigid and unforgiving using the d-pad. Thankfully, you can use the R and L buttons to rotate the camera and move forward at the same time, this makes for much more fluid turning than using the d-pad.

    CoD3 is a game that is slightly repetitive if not lackluster in its single player - the first level is insanely awesome though.

    a must buy for fans of the "Fast and The Furious" movie.

    Moon Diver could have used more attention in creating a fun experience that didn't rely on over saturating players with enemies to kill, but depending on what kind of person you are, the hectic multiplayer can be a blast with an old-school bend.

    MLB 2K9 belongs in the 'fun' category. It looks great, and most of the time the game plays great. But it's not kind online, and pitch counts and tendencies, and hitters that act like the real thing, aren't there.

    But overall the game performs on the PS3 without much issue. It's not the best looking game on the market, but I enjoyed the brightly hued color of the stages, despite some of the more repetitious environments that divide the rooms.
