    After all of the hype about the story, the Death Jr. comic book, and the upcoming film, one would think that the actual game would include a kick @$$ story, but that's just not the case.

    If the only system you own is the Sony PSP and you need an X-Men fix, you could do a lot worse than X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Rent it first, bub.

    Although Monster Mouth DDS could use more content, it's still a well-designed title and a fun way to pass the time, especially for kids.

    Marvel Run Jump Smash! is a pretty good running action game, and has plenty to offer to comic book fans. Unfortunately, it can't overcome the villainy of a rather unfair freemium model. It's worth a try, at the very least.

    The real kicker, though, is the lack of wireless multiplayer. You Don't Know Jack, at least for now, is a solo affair, while the recently released console versions support up to four players simultaneously.

    Sega really stumbled into a brick wall with this game and it'll always be one of those titles that, when I look back on it, will be remembered as a missed opportunity to create something truly special.

    It certainly has its faults, but if you crave some monkey action on the go, it more than satisfies your primal hunger.

    I cannot fault this collection for having some games I could find boring. But I don't mind giving an average score to a collection which aimed only for the bare-bones of success.

    Silent Ops is a good, though unremarkable third person shooter that lacks the extra level of polish to put it over the top.

    While the graphics and sound are mostly pleasing and the numerous modes and events will keep you busy, I think the difficulty should've been adjusted, and online play should have been made a factor.

    While Pokemon Rumble Blast offers hardcore fanatics another opportunity to "catch 'em all", there's little meat on this game's bones for the casual crowd looking for the next great 3DS title. Not bad by any means, just too shallow to stand out.

    WireWay is a decent spin-off from its DS counterpart. The pull-string gameplay works adequately, and the Quest and Challenge modes will keep you busy. That said, additional levels (for free) and improved camera options would've made it a better value.

    While Super Bobby's unlikely to win any honors, it won't cost you a cent to try it out, and you could certainly do a lot worse in the platforming genre. Give it a try.

    Those looking for some fresh blood without putting too much of a dent in their wallet will want to give it a look though.

    Three games that deliver a pretty good value. Sadly, that's about it for this package. There's no extra music galleries, no mini-games, not even the ability to play with upgraded visuals. It is kind of bare-bones in that regard, and that may turn off those who look for everything in a collection.

    Taking that into account, ATV Wild Ride 3D was clearly designed as a quick-play arcade-style game, and while the visuals do very little with the hardware, you'll probably come back to this title more than you originally thought. Just don't go into it with high expectations.

    Great Little War Game HD is much better than a three out of five. We just couldn't award it a higher score knowing it crashes on iPad 2. If you can deal with that, or have the iPhone/older iPad, this App comes highly recommended.

    Nevertheless, Nancy Drew: Deadly Secret of Olde World Park hits the spot surprisingly well, rather than dwelling in "girly content" that would've made this game just as insulting as Acclaim's Mary Kate and Ashley line-up.

    Just make sure to keep the improper touching to a minimum -- you don't want to be completely freaky like these guys. It is still a prison, after all.

    There's no denying that Sudoku Gridmaster is a somewhat boring release, but its very clear in what it is and what it is attempting to accomplish, and I feel it accomplishes it quite well. I think it's a better Sudoku experience than what's included in "Brain Age", but that probably only really matters to those that are really into the puzzle.

    No, Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman! What Did I Do To Deserve This? won't change the way you look at tower defense games. There are better ones out there with minions that actually act the way they're supposed to. Despite that, there's a decent game hidden within the issues.

    If you love monsters and building things without much fuss, it satisfies on some level. We just expected more treats than tricks.

    All told, this isn't the type of action game we expected, and it didn't take long for Samurai Sword Destiny to wear out its welcome.

    With vehicles, suits and lots of classic characters, LEGO Batman: The Videogame is a fun DS game worth your time. It's not as attractive as the PSP version and it doesn't take great advantage of the hardware, but if Nintendo's system is all you own, it's worth a trip to the Batcave.

    All Guns Blazing is a fun shooter in short bursts. The gameplay gets a bit repetitive with each play through, but if played in moderation it can be a pretty fun time building up your cartel.

    Fionna Fights certainly has its moments, although the game's a very short-lived affair when all's said and done. Having grabbed a few power-ups and run a dozen or so games, you'll have seen everything the game has to offer, but fans of the cartoon series will certainly get more mileage out of this particular adventure.

    Episode 2 disappoints overall, simply because it should have been better than it is. Sega put some good ideas on the table, but the bothersome water segments, tag team maneuvers and uninspired level design left us wanting a lot more. Hardcore Sonic fans, we imagine, will still gobble it up.

    A decent Angry Birds clone that'll appeal to wrestling fans and, well, wrestling fans. There's little reason to choose this game over the other titles in the App Store, but if you eat, sleep and breathe WWE, it provides a decent experience.

    For .99, Ghosts'n Zombies is a decent pick up, but the holy roller hero and been there/seen that design means you'll stop playing and ultimately forget about it days after making the purchase, but as that mustachioed dude said in RoboCop, "I'd buy that for the dollar."

    Mishandled is the best way to describe what EA's done with the Marvel license.
