    Taken as a whole; Time Crisis: Razing Storm is a fairly good package.

    Those who like motocross freestyling and want a simpler trick system should enjoy this game.

    It's disappointing to have a game that shows so much promise, and yet could have been so much more.

    Stranglehold is a fun time for action gamers but the major problem is it's over way too quickly and there aren't many compelling reasons to come back to it. I liked it but I wish there were more to it.

    One upside to it is that the game is roughly six to eight hours in length so if you have a weekend to kill then this one may be up your alley. It certainly looks pretty, sounds great, and the ragdoll physics are put to great use. It just would have been nice to play a challenging game instead of one where nothing is balanced out.

    Even after going through the tutorial and starting the first scenario....I just found myself yawning at the screen. The game simply isn't aimed at me, which doesn't make it a bad game...just one aimed at a very small slice of the gaming populace, even smaller than strategy fans in general.

    I just want to take the time to request that everyone take notice of Conquest mode. It’s really a shot in the arm for sports games and should really be present in every other title in the genre.

    The difficulty varies greatly, and might frustrate the game's chosen audience.

    Space Invaders Extreme 2 is a fun game, and it will only set you back $20.

    While it won't quite help you to "learn a new language", it will give you a good foundation in Spanish and set you up for an easier time learning what you need to become fluent.

    A solid effort, and fans of the series will definitely enjoy it. The lack of multiplayer is a big hit against it, especially in a game aimed at children and pre-teens.

    This game will have limited appeal, and only those who are fanatics of King of Fighters are likely to pick up this game.

    It does play a bit slow at times, but building a powerful deck during the game is fairly easy.

    It’s the best looking, most enticingly put together football game this year, but playing it is about as enjoyable as watching The Jets get mauled the first few weeks of this season.

    If you aren't into fighting games, the breakneck pace and split-second timing required by the game might put you off the genre for a while. But if you like fighting games, and you've already played as much of Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix as you can stand, you won't have to feel guilty about picking this up.

    If you really loved the movie, then you will want the game.

    Still, for any PC gaming Middle-earth fan, I think this is a title worth checking out at the very least. Sure, there may not be much story here, but being able to (potentially, with paid DLC) play over 36 characters from Middle-earth and have them fight against each other is definitely entertaining. For people looking for the next big MOBA title to catch on, this probably isn’t the title for you.

    For those people who are hardcore soccer fans, you're still going to be better off with the superior Winning Eleven Soccer series, which has more depth and details and dosen't have the problem that WTS 2006 has with the problems reading their menus.

    It has a steep enough learning curve that it requires some definite determination to stick with the game long enough to begin enjoying it.

    While the action is fast and frantic at first, it quickly becomes a bit too repetitive for its own good. With the camera issues and too much of the game played solo, Fantastic Four is a solid effort, but it comes short in the execution.

    There are a few things that make me wonder how good the game could have been with a little more time devoted to adding more variation and leveraging some of the core concepts better. Either way, it is a solid effort that my kids are having a blast with.

    But in the end, The Bureau is a completely different game that stands on its own. While they didn’t make the next game of the year, 2K Marin has crafted their own XCOM adventure. It’s one that features some lifeless characters and a nonsensical story, but also some of the best squad-based third person shooting you’re going to see all year.

    It takes some time to get used to the play style and the controls, so you might want to consider other options before going straight in.

    Some will get bored with the RPG combat elements because of their simplicity. Some will get frustrated by the balance issues. Others will be disappointed at the length.

    The game comes with many buzzes and whistles even though some were left out, but what good are all the graphics and controls if the game falls flat on gameplay.

    There isn’t much depth to the single-player game, but having a season mode is a nice addition.

    Luckily, Touch The Dead manages to overcome its shortfalls simply by being utterly tongue-in-cheek and letting you get lost in the fun of killing zombies in true HotD fashion.

    For $30, it's not a bad deal to try it out and see how you and your friends can do when in the mood for some trivia. Just don't expect the same level of expectation of being on the show.

    The number of different challenges actually detracts from the gameplay instead of enhancing it. THDJ isn’t a bad game, but if you are expecting something similar to the other Tony Hawk games you might find yourself disappointed.

    What Sony forgot to do was fix the control scheme and think a bit harder about how the game was presented in the single-player section.
