    With very little in terms of side missions, this game is strictly a linear game. The sight gags, new story and new voice samples will make any Simpsons fan smile.

    Be prepared to come with a strong stomach, as this game earns its "M" rating in spades.

    Will Madden NFL 10 change your mind about the franchise as a whole, and get you to buy it if you don't normally do so? Probably not. Like most NFL teams, this game is not quite ready for the Super Bowl.

    If you have a PSP and want some Sudoku on the go, this is a great way to get your fix.

    While the core gameplay is unchanged, Ultramix feels like a less complete package than other DDR games in the series. Instead of trying to attract a new generation of gamers, Ultramix feels like a game dedicated to the hardcore DDR player.

    Duels of the Planeswalkers isn’t a perfect interpretation of sitting down and playing a few rounds with friends at the kitchen table, but it’s remarkably good all the same.

    The bottom line, as you might expect, is that this is a visually rich combat simulator that brings a lot of arcade-style pleasure to the table, and it succeeds in strolling a fine line between repetitive and addictive – something that many similar titles aim for and miss.

    The minigames in this feel somewhat wasted and limited, but the party modes themselves can be a lot of fun, adding some definite multiplayer mayhem to the title.

    Fans of this style of gameplay will be happy for weeks on end, and the wide dispersement of save spots make this game an easy pick up for 15 minutes and play game.

    It was interesting seeing more from a company that I thought handled primarily fighting games, and I also got to see the history of a company that is beloved by millions of gamers.

    At Forty dollars this compilation is worth every penny for seven arcade perfect translations.

    If you are looking for a solid third person shooter on the PSP then you will find it here. But, if you only intend to play the single player campaign you really shouldn’t buy this one, maybe rent it instead. The real meat of the game comes from multiplayer co-op.

    Mirror's Edge is fairly unique, and I have to applaud DICE for trying something completely new. The fact that they managed to achieve the level of success presented here is amazing.

    EyeToy Play 2 plays a lot like a flash game as it is fast and furious but ultimately not built to last. To combat that, Sony has provided us with an incredible catalog of unique minigames packed on this one DVD.

    If you are looking for a standard fighter for your Gamecube, then this is your only option. Keep in mind though that there are far better fighters for other systems.

    A great translation with some nice bells and whistles, but the inconsistent AI and lack of Xbox Live really hamper this title.

    A bit of a paradox. While the graphics are poor, the sound is much more developed. The controls are great for while on foot, but vehicles take some adjustment.

    Figuring out the pattern and applying a solution is an awesome feeling if everything is done correctly.

    The puzzles aren’t particularly difficult and there are no bosses to speak of, but Dokomodake has a certain charm and is so enjoyable that gamers will get their money and entertainment out of it.

    Project: Snowblind starts off with huge potential. The graphics, sounds, and controls are well done, even with the minor complaints.

    If you already have Madden NFL 06 for the Xbox, PS2, or Gamecube, you are best off waiting for next year's version of Madden for the Xbox 360. If you have the Xbox 360 and want to show off the graphics capabilities of the Xbox 360, then Madden is a fine choice to use.

    This is the kind of game that you can play with your kids and not be bored to death. It is light co-op arcade fun that delivers on its promise.

    A little more polish and gameplay balance could have made Second Sight a classic gaming experience. This really is too bad since it contains a story that puts Psi-Ops to shame.

    This version has taken some strides ahead of '07, and it makes sense to have it.

    If you are a fan of the previous titles you will also like SingStar Volume 2.

    Overall, The Bridge manages to avoid crossing that fine line between challenging and frustrating, making you work to solve each puzzle without wanting to break your keyboard in the process. It’s an enjoyable experience that encourages you to think differently, and then rewards you for doing so.

    Tekken 6 isn't a bad game, but it doesn't feel like it does anything new with the genre.

    The multiplayer experience isn't so killer, however, and it's a shame because it's just brimming with potential.

    All in all, Haunted Houdini is a great entrant into this particular style of game. If you enjoy visual puzzles and an adventure based around occult mystery, then really, head on over to the Steam marketplace and give it a look.

    In short, this is a much better multiplayer game than a single player one.
