    Civilization Revolution makes our DS smile. The game is sweet strategic candy wrapped in replay chocolate.

    Bomberman Land Touch 2 does exactly what it needs to do, lets you bomb your way through various mini-games and an insanely fun battle mode for a pretty modest price.

    The truth be told, Mario Party DS is one of the better games in the series, with replay value galore -- especially if you got friends around.

    Although we'll take one of the higher-up versions just for the sake of looking at the unimaginable frame rate and getting some online multiplayer in, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is still a solid recommendation on the handheld front.

    Overall, though, Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney has enough refreshing content and "legal good times" to keep you happily satisfied, with its well-integrated storyline, characters and touch-screen tools.

    While there is nothing particularly exceptional about Dungeon Explorer: Warriors of Ancient Arts, there's also no major flaws.

    GRID is difficult at first, and the lack of a speedy frame rate may throw you off. Otherwise, there's nothing to hold you back from shifting into high gear. Buy it, hit the gas and race for the finish line.

    It's been awhile since we've had a Nintendo DS game come along and totally kick our ass, but Bangai-O Spirits does it in a very good way.

    Soul Bubbles will keep you engaged longer than the real thing and is definitely worth a look.

    For $20, you get your monies worth from Big Bang Mini. Multiplayer actually serves a purpose here (rather than being a tacked-on gimmick), and the single-player modes will keep you busy for hours. The best part? You won't lose any fingers.

    Figuring out how to solve each puzzle, creating your own and sharing them with others makes this an essential addition to your PSP library.

    For $20, Arkanoid DS isn't just a steal, it's a requirement. It's fun, it looks and sounds great and it has options for both the solo and multiple players.

    The only thing working against Bleach: Dark Souls is familiarity. You've seen most of these options before in Blade of Fate. Aside from that, this is a true winner for fans of the anime, Treasure fanatics and fighting purists.

    Overall, if you like the Indiana Jones flicks or have a flavor for something Lego (and can't wait for Lego Batman), this trilogy will hit the spot. It's fun for all ages, even if it doesn't do anything incredibly different over the Star Wars games.

    It not only has the variety that Olympic fans are looking for, but, more importantly, it also has the fun.

    Resistance: Retribution is worth a look, thanks to its enjoyable single player campaign, sharp visuals and addictive multiplayer. PSP owners should definitely pick it up.

    If you're looking for the next step in the role-playing genre and don't mind doing a little work, open up the book and crack the Code. You won't regret it.

    With a lengthy single player mode, limited but engaging multiplayer games and attractive visuals given the hardware, World at War is among the system's best shooters and worth your cash. Enlist today.

    Although Drawn to Life: SpongeBob Squarepants Edition is a great game for fans of the little yellow sponge, we feel it could alienate older gamers who enjoyed the premier release of the Drawn to Life series.
