    For what used to be my favorite arcade game of all time, this is a wonderful new edition that stays true to the original. The graphics have been wonderfully redone, and the sounds still sound great.

    It's a lot of fun to play, is fairly inexpensive, and you'll get a ton of hours of great gameplay out of it, not just for you but for the entire family.

    The controls were too loose for a game like this.

    There’s a fantastic community of players online that are willing to help newbies, as well as plenty of sites with huge databases full of information if you get stuck.

    Baseball Mogul 2008 is absolutely great at what it does – a fantasy baseball simulator that lets you call all the shots for your team, from trades, lineups, and other GM and Manager duties. The simulator itself is extremely fast, accurate, and realistic with tons of ways to tweak if you find yourself needing to do so.

    It does what it does best – quick amazing action with great graphics and fun gameplay.

    With plenty that’s new to see and do, even without seeing what the new continent has to offer, The Burning Cruisade looks like a fantastic expansion set and comes highly recommended for WoW veterans as well as players that have gone into hibernation (like me), or newbies looking for something fun to take up 88 hours of their week.

    A good game with a great longevity factor.

    We loved the story and the wide variety of challenges that face gamers throughout the enjoyable career mode. The lack of the online gameplay support is the big negative for this PS3 edition, but all in all the game is so much fun it's impossible not to recommend.

    The game is extremely action-packed and intense, and has a nice new variety of weapons and vehicles that bring a nice rich depth that adds nicely to a very popular franchise.

    Good graphics, fun in-game play, good mini-games, not a whole lot of depth with season mode.

    The graphics are commendable, but not amazing, the sound is arguably the game’s best quality, and overall, comes as a game that is best suited for fans of games of this nature only.

    Best console shooter on XBox 360, and maybe ever.

    If you are looking for the next Grand Theft Auto for PSP, this is not it. The main story mode falls short and fails to deliver, but the additional modes add a lot of content and provides you with something to do, no matter your mood or amount of time available.

    A decent game that's best played in the story "Life" mode.

    One of the best RTS games in PC gaming history - no doubt about it.

    For those of you that are die-hard NASCAR fans, you’ll have to pick this up for the updated (but slightly out of date) roster, and the new features put in are decent. However, if you’re looking for a ground-breaking NASCAR title, you’ll probably be disappointed with this release.

    My favorite PSP game. It has beautiful visuals, wonderful songs, cute characters, simple gameplay that’s easy on the go, and a lot of replay value.

    An absolute hit. The newly added defensive controls, offensive abilities (including the highlight stick which might just be the best new feature), and other features add up to a very impressive game and a highlight showcase title for the console.

    Definitely worth a look, but gets a bit repetitive with the actual gameplay.

    I haven’t had a gaming session like this in a long time. It’s one you kick the roommates off of the TV for or call in sick to work for.

    The graphics and audio couple together really well for a kick-ass experience, and the gameplay and driving controls are solid.

    If you are a soccer fan that is looking for a fast paced game that is accessible for many and great for playing on the go, WTS06 is the game you are looking for.

    If you love RPGs, then this title is a must have for any PC gamer. With the right hardware, it offers better graphics than any game in its genre to date, with a really nice set of monsters that will sometimes scare you right off your mouse.

    Overall, X-Men: The Official Game offers up some great backstory and art direction as a title, along with a great roster of voice actors which are the same big names as in the franchise of movies.
    • 58 Metascore

    More mature gamers will find themselves a little underwhelmed, but on its own it's a nice looking, nice sounding, and fairly fun title.
