    While there's definitely some fun to be had in the game, it's heavily tempered by frustration and boredom caused by the camera distance and the yawnfest that is the Voltron levels. Also, given how big a show Voltron was, twelve levels in three 'epsiodes' for 800 Microsoft Points ($10) seems a bit lacking.

    For $40 minus one cent, Army Corps of Hell is a difficult recommend, but when it drops to $20 or lower, I believe it would be a welcome addition to anyone's Vita library.

    Despite the changes, the game remains largely the same, which is its biggest strength and its biggest weakness. The core gameplay remains the same, but with better physics, which makes the game as entertaining and challenging as the original, but in many ways the game is too old to endure as a modern title.

    The good news is that the basics, such as its over-the-top style, four player functionality, and diversity of tracks have returned. The bad news is that the opportunities this series has had to improve, like their unhelpful dance cards, crummy menus, and sometimes shoddy motion-tracking have gone unfixed.

    It’s not a large sprawling Serious Sam encounter with a noteworthy single player campaign, but it certainly changes things up enough to keep you coming back for more.

    The online concept seems very good, the actual play just needs to be refined when talking about such things as network lag and the sort. Things can get very frustrating very fast with the delay in action after pressing a button.

    It’s not a bad distraction for a little while, but the frustration of the game can be hard to overcome.

    Neopets could have been a fun game that introduces younger players to the action RPG genre. Instead, the game becomes boring because of balancing issues.

    A poor manual, combined with a small move list for each character really puts this game at the rental level. They did manage to capture the series quite well in the game, but they did so at the expense of gameplay.

    As much as I wanted to like it, I couldn’t recommend NBA ’07 to any of you out there, especially if you’re interested in actually playing basketball.

    The lack of any real bonus levels or new content, and the overall simple difficulty of the game really hampered my enjoyment of it. Also, by the time I really got going in the game, it was nearly over.

    I just can’t help but feel that this sandbox has plenty of toys in it, but they just aren’t as much fun to play with as they could be.

    The game hits its stride far too early, and then never really hits it again after that.

    If you like a little bit of puzzle in your shooter and have a high patience level, then be on the lookout for Bangai-O Spirits.

    Bottom line is this: If you’ve never played Peggle before, add 15 points to that score and buy this immediately. If you’re like me and have already played it to death, be warned that there’s nothing new to see here and you may just want to move right along to something different.

    I enjoyed The Legend of Kage 2 despite its flaws. I was willing to overlook its deficiencies, and it was an entertaining diversion.

    All in all, this is a decent port of the PC version, if only they hadn’t ported the blemishes as well.

    By making the incomprehensible decision to change almost every aspect of the series’ classic gameplay, then serving it up in a lackluster campaign, the developers managed to alienate old fans and new fans alike.

    Both the stealth and shooting elements of this game are largely broken, leaving only the story elements and features I mentioned above to hold it all together. Perplexed, I’ll have to say that if I’m only left with the excellent story and ambiance, I think I’ll just buy the book instead.

    The game is not that difficult, and the only thing you can really unlock is a few extra teams. The game is a little better if you can play it with someone else, but you will become quickly bored with it.

    It's a fun and very atmospheric game, but with so much repetition throughout it can real old real quick. But then, all movies like this are more of the same so where's the surprise?

    A racing game should be fun and exciting and give me a sense of accomplishment when I complete a level. If I want a sense of relief that I'll never have to play any given mission again, I'll fire up SRS.

    For an attempt at creating a worthwhile recreational experience, it's an otherwise fun game rendered boring by constant loading screens.

    Ultimately I can only recommend Dissidia 012 if you really liked the first Dissidia. If that's the case then you should think about selling or trading in the original game, since Dissidia 012 is essentially the same game, only with a new story mode and a character assist mechanic thrown in.

    For all of its shortcomings, its flaws, and its failures, I still enjoyed my time with Deadlight. I wanted to find out what happened to Randall and his family. I was driven, compelled to finish, and I would still recommend that it be played. Fans of side-scrolling platformers, and zombie games in general, will find an original, if imperfect, experience here. And while the price is a bit steep for the content, I think there's a great game to be found in here.

    The first part of this series has made me hungry for more. I will be waiting for the second and third parts, as the anticipation was effectively built up in this introduction.

    A pretty game with a bad camera and no attempt at coming close to the fun of the first game makes this an extremely bad purchasing decision.

    After sitting down with the game for a while though, I can say that the game has much more in common with "Devil May Cry's" lackluster sequel.

    There’s no way a gamer can’t beat this inside 10 hours as there are no puzzles, it’s all run and gun, and there’s not a heck of a lot of challenge other than fighting the controls and the camera. Give it a rent if you’re into Westerns.

    If you are going to use it, it's an inexpensive investment that's worthwhile.
