    Going into and out of some of WWII’s most intense battles will keep you coming back for more. If you can get by the average graphics and a couple of A.I. wobbles you’ll have a great time playing this game.

    SNK/NeoGeo fans will certainly welcome it into their permanent game library, but others are liable to be quickly frustrated by the difficulty and continue system.

    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.

    This is a title that fans of skateboarding games will pick up and love, due to the simple fact that for XBox 360, there isn't much of a selection of this type of game out there for them. Other people can and might enjoy it, but in the end, it fails to impress and is nothing spectacular.

    The game is fully featured for tremendous long term value, and the online components put it over the top in terms of true dollar value for your gaming experience.

    The graphics, sound, and gameplay all add up to an amazing gaming experience that is fueled by a well crafted story. The missions are varied, the characters are well developed, and the title comes together as *the best* western game ever to be made.

    The voice acting is very solid, and the too-few story based missions make the game completely worthwhile.

    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.

    The gameplay is pretty bad, the features of the game have inexplicably vanished, and the only good new thing about the title is the improved graphics - which really aren't all that groundbreaking when compared to other 360 titles.

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

    Kids and the parents who shop for them or nostalgic Atari 2600 gamers will find it a decent purchase, but it’s recommended they rent it first as well to see if the unique control schemes aren’t too frustrating.

    The choice of following General George S. Patton’s campaigns was both logical (as the best US Tank General ever) and engaging. The Blitzkrieg system works well with no flaws experienced, in a graphics rich environment.

    For gamers hoping for a deeper, more unique game play use of EyeToy’s capabilities, this ain’t it.

    Notwithstanding that we had to penalize the game for the disappointing graphics, the development team did an excellent job on creating a game that you can literally play for the next 2 years and never play the same character twice!

    I found the game too dark to really enjoy and the patience required just didn't grab my attention enough to really feel strongly about this title.

    The game's original atmosphere and crazy events are a lot of fun to play, and you'll find yourself itching to play it some more as soon as your buddies come back.

    The game’s audio, variety of weapons and moves keeps you interested for a while, but the game isn’t that long and is very repetitive, which certainly kills any buzz you originally had.

    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.

    A good weekend rental for kids who liked the Shrek movies, but a poor purchase unless you have several young’n’s who game together. It captures the movie’s attitude and charm well enough, but glosses over too much of its game play potential.

    The unlockables are likely only going to appeal to hardcore KoF fans, but the huge number of fighters and team combinations can keep players in search of D-pad kung fu mastery playing for a long time.

    Strongly recommend a rent for the kids, a buy for kids that loved the movie.

    An addicting, impressive, and most importantly fun game. The graphics are very nice, the sounds are equally impressive, and the gameplay of the soccer and the amount of modes available make for a tremendous gaming experience.

    Good varied tournaments, and its fun to see the pros in the game.

    Offers up some of the best graphics on the PS2 to date, and certainly is the most entertaining FPS game we've played on the console ever.
