    In my opinion Itagaki needs to go back to the drawing board and come up with some new concepts for this hybrid dating sports game. Some more depth is certainly needed as the inclusion of water sports doesn’t accomplish this.

    Vampire Rain is a rental only in my opinion unless you have more money than sense.

    If you’re a casual gamer and you're looking for some word search puzzles then maybe you could pick this up. It really doesn’t improve on the original and considering the original is paper and pen that’s quite shocking.

    There’s been a ton of great games released for 800 points on the service, I can tell you that Screwjumper is not one of them. While I can appreciate the developers tried to do something different, in this case different does not always mean better.

    I find it hard for myself, and anyone else for that matter, to forgive the scroll list of technical, chorographical, and design issues that are presented with this game.

    Shaun White Snowboarding ultimately is more of an uphill experience than it is racing down an icy slope.

    A game for Prison Break fans to play through on a wet and soggy weekend perhaps? Though you'd probably have more entertainment in a real prison cell, or at least about the same.

    The bottom line is, 1200 points is just too steep a price to pay for a flawed, frustrating, unbalanced and vastly dated shooter.

    Naughty Bear isn't a bad game per se, and features some neat ideas, but is ultimately lacking in vision and variety.

    That magic that those previously mentioned franchises is no doubt a little lost within Marvel Super Hero Squad, in what becomes quite a delight in the LEGO games, can result in some painful and uninspiring play for the older gamer here, as the humour and universe is just not on par with the previously mentioned franchises when combined with blocks of LEGO.

    Dungeons & Dragons: Daggerdale is a game that means to serve the fans, but is a let down in so many areas. With the stellar Torchlight hitting the marketplace as well, the only thing Daggerdale has on it is cooperative gameplay, and it even does that poorly. Only the most hardcore D&D fans should venture forth, everyone else should cast a haste spell and run away...quickly.

    Duke Nukem Forever should have been released as an XBLA or PSN game for around 1600 - 2400 points which then you could have overlooked the fact that it really cannot compete with the big boys. There is fun to be had here if you're a Duke fan, but whether it's worth the price of entry is debatable and whether it was worth the 14 year wait is something for the history books to document.

    You can't help but feel that TiQal is a few years too late.

    The game play and story are very forgettable, and the games brightest point, the multi player, won't shine enough to make this a must have game.

    Raven Squad sounded great on paper, and in many regards you could have forgiven poor graphics and dodgy sound if there was some flair and fun to be had with the gameplay. Sadly there is not.

    While the game is almost as fun as playing with a pencil and paper, it just seems to be lacking a personality that will leave you wanting to play puzzle after puzzle.

    All of the parties responsible for this deserve to be called into question, and all gamers should question whether or not this subpar and frankly embarrassing title justifies further purchases from any of the three companies involved.

    Eat lead has its humor going for it, and perhaps is the only reason the game should be played.

    Horror and shooter fans alike may find some cheap thrills within Blood Trails, but ultimately the majority of the game is quite simply a very unsatisfying experience.

    There's a reason why Bethesda have kept quiet with this game and quite frankly it's because it's under par.

    Terminator Salvation copies tried and trusted formulas that work in other games, and regurgitates the ideas into something so basic and uneventful that the homage paid to the games it copies is totally lost.

    I initially tried to justify the cost of the content based on all content included, and while for those who are still addicted to the row, these newly mentioned toys in the sandbox will be greatly welcomed. For the rest of us though, the new, incredibly-short story arc, ultimately acts as a big tease and unless you're addicted to Saints 2's multiplayer offerings, you will probably feel robbed of your 800MSP by the corrupt government that is the Ultor Corporation.

    RIDE could've been a great game with a broken controller and it still would've been tough to justify. Instead, its a lacklustre game, full of sloppy cuts and rehashed elements. Then on top of all that bad design, it fails to deliver on its only virtue.

    Leo's quest to find out what happened to him should have been more about a journey why gamers won't pay 800 Microsoft Points to play Death by Cube. The story, graphics ,and sound are mediocre at best and not something Square Enix fans would expect from such a distinguished company.

    It seems like a fairly cheap move delivering what now comes across as an incomplete experience without purchasing this download content, and seeing as this is being listed with a $4.00/£3.20 buying price, it isn't exactly cheap to experience it.

    Sadly, Iron Man 2 is easily one of the most disappointing games of 2010 thus far, no doubt though there will be something else down the line that will reluctantly take this throne.

    Sonic Adventure isn't worth 800 points, and it absolutely isn't worth 1200 to get the additional content. For 1200 points, you can instead get the entire original Sonic the Hedgehog trilogy, and trust me when I tell you, it's a much better use of your money.

    Dead Space Ignition is a great idea, an optional introduction to a top tier game available as downloadable content. Imagine the opportunities this kind of product could have offered. Instead this game is equal parts frustrating and boring.

    What you're left with is a title which frustrates far more than it excites and therefore can only be recommended to the desperate and the forgiving.

    This is one of Harry's adventures that may be worth dodging altogether, at least in gaming form. If the Kinect support is of interest, then certainly a rental is best advised, ultimately though the story is worth a single play through and sets itself up accordingly for Part 2 of the game.
