    Adventure fans and fans of past Silent Hill games will find a lot to enjoy with Silent Hill Origins for the PS2.

    From the graphics to the dry commentary to the awkward controls, Chessmaster could have had a lot more going for it. Since older versions for the PC can be found, and the mouse interface is more intuitive, I'd have to recommend one of those versions over the Xbox version.

    If you own a Wii and you are looking for something different that will challenge your emotions then give Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon a shot.

    If you’re on the hunt for a new puzzle game to challenge you, this one’s at the very least worth a look.

    In the end, however, Gyromancer feels like somewhat of a wasted opportunity because of some poor design decisions, which is a major disappointment.

    Pretty much a button mashing game. The good part of this game is that there are lots of things you can do.

    If you are curious about the card game and don’t mind the cartoon character interactions, then the excellent tutorial should provide a good explanation of the basics.

    Niche products like Green Day: Rock Band have an obvious audience – Green Day fans. If you are a fan of the band, you’ve probably already got a copy of the game. If you aren’t a fan of the band, this product likely won’t make you one.

    A stylish game brought down by the ok graphics, run-of-the-mill FPS content, horrible aiming controls and my general lack of interest when playing the game.

    A non-intuitive interface, some gameplay issues on the ice and little replay value.

    A rental at best, pure and simple. There are vastly superior action titles on the market, and everything presented here played better in the first game.

    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.

    That's the key problem with Enter the Matrix...it feels so 2+ years ago.

    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.

    While I found myself disappointed in the percieved lack of effort in Echoes of Time for the Wii, I'll say this much: When you're playing it multiplayer, you quickly forget all about the blocky graphics or the lack of extra content.

    Naruto: Path of the Ninja 2 has a lot of potential.

    World Tour Soccer 2005 is undone by the delay between button pressing and action on the screen. If it ran smoothly it would probably give Winning Eleven 7 a run for its money this year. However, the delay destroys any possibility of that happening.

    It just feels like this game could have been renamed Dynasty Warriors: Fist of the North Star. If you like that style of gameplay, then you may enjoy this game. Otherwise it's not worth your time, even for fans of the series.

    This review isn't a knock on the game itself, but rather the PC port. Message to devs and publishers; "If you are going to port something to PC don't make it half-arsed because it can put a negative spin on the whole entire product line!"

    If you don’t mind gathering up three friends, and you don’t mind leaving your brains at the door, you’ll be in store for a decent multiplayer hack and slash. The lack of replay value other than for multiplayer and the uninteresting single player make this game only for those who love all that is Gauntlet-styled.

    Do not pick up Rainbow Six: Lockdown for the single-player experience. If you plan on picking this game up be sure you have Xbox Live because that is the only place you are going to find meaningful gameplay.

    There are a lot of good ideas contained in Frontlines: Fuel of War, but their execution just seems to make the game feel average.

    The graphics engine never really received enough attention to smooth it out, nor did the sound system. The control system is ambitious and unique but just doesn't pan out either.

    From my perspective, this title fails to find its audience – it doesn’t deliver enough content for the older kids, and the frustration factor is too high for younger kids. I’d say you could catch this one when Toys R’ Us runs their next 2-for-1 sale, but I’d be hard pressed to recommend it at full retail price.

    Still, fans of retro-adventure titles and those just bored of the "same old same old" in the hidden object field may find themselves captivated by A Gypsy's Tale's storybook charm.

    Unfortunately, once you land on the ground after your airdrop, Airborne feels just like any other WWII game that you have played before.

    If you have quick reflexes and a fast stylus hand, you will probably have an absolute blast with this one.

    This game is long...and the ability to save is minimal.

    Those looking for a new super hero action RPG experience might look at Marvel Ultimate Alliance to get more bang for their buck.
