    If you're new or never heard of Neo Geo before, and are still in love with the many other fighting games on offer at the moment, then perhaps you won't be missing anything here. For fans of Neo Geo games, this is a whet dream come true and well worth it.

    Saw
    It's the perfect rental for Saw fans, and the same can be said for those seeking another game to boost their gamerscore.

    The Fancy Pants Adventures will not knock the ball out of the park in any department, but it still is a very competent side scrolling adventure game. Gamers that love a Mario style adventure game will no doubt enjoy their trip into Mr Fancy Pants world. At 800 Microsoft Points, The Fancy Pants Adventures will satisfy fans of the platform genre, and not damage the pocketbook too much.

    If strategic board games like Catan and Carcassonne are your thing, by all means grab Ticket to Ride, it's definitely a worthy addition to any self respecting board gamers library of Xbox Live Arcade games.

    Although it is a solid fighting game, if you don't appreciate the style of the cartoons then it could get old fast, for example you might have just nailed a complicated combo only to have it interrupted and ended by a drama card which is totally out of your control.

    Gun
    GUN is a very fun game to mess around with, yet playing the Xbox 360 version felt very underwhelming when compared to the Xbox version.

    Its hard to justify GDRB as a full game as opposed to nothing more than just a DLC pack that it could have been. At a RRP of £40 it doesn't really seem to be worth the money but some Green Day fans will be tearing at the bit to play through Dookie and American Idiot, but for anyone else this game will be worth a play if/when it drops down to around £20.

    The thing is, these niggles and annoyances really add up throughout the game, making the last few levels a chore to play through.

    I’d recommend to anyone who’s into RPG’s to at least try The Last Remnant via a rent, you’ll probably won’t be able to complete it, but it’s the only way you’ll find out whether it’s a game you can enjoy while turning a blind eye to obvious downfalls.

    A fun yet very different Rayman game and in my opinion it’s hit and miss as to whether fans of previous games will enjoy this due to its departure from what is expected. A real Marmite game, you’ll either love or hate it.

    Even though they do, in fact, Save The World in their first appearance on the Xbox 360, unless you’re a die-hard Sam & Max fan or just itching for a new adventure game to immerse yourself in, you’re better off Saving Your Money.

    Sadly Import Tuner Challenge doesn’t re-invent the wheel and feels exactly the same as "Tokyo Extreme Racer." This isn’t necessarily a bad thing although I do feel more could have been added other than the obvious graphical upgrade.

    More forgiving Most Wanted fans will find a lot to like in NFS Undercover.

    With a little patience regarding the overall speed of the game you will find an entertaining title that will grip you to the end. Not essential but a good game all round.

    This game proves the argument that game play is more important than graphics. The addictive nature of this fast, action puzzle shooter will make sure you come back time and time again to break up those long sessions on any other 360 title.

    Overall, Blood Bowl is a game that will appeal to fans and non-fans alike, providing the later stick with it and give it a chance. Unfortunately, most won't, and understandably, will look elsewhere soon after loading the game up.

    Go! Go! Break Steady is worth a spin if your into either rhythm or puzzle games just because of its blending of the two genres.

    Not much has changed with the gameplay in the 11 years between games, but it does stay true to its arcadey racer roots that provides fun for everyone.

    If you're a fan of wrestling games, then TNA iMPACT! is worth renting out some wrestling boots for, alternatively keep your eyes peeled for hopefully a much more feature packed sequel... or rather the soon to be released, SmackDown vs. Raw 2009.

    The graphics seem to be a step backwards in the franchise but as I have said before, the PEC mode is the saving grace of this game.

    Based on our experience and challenge that is on offer with Onslaught mode, we'd most certainly be happy to recommend Onslaught mode for Bad Company 2 veterans, as there's enough replay value to warrant the price tag, and with new maps on the horizon Onslaught will undoubtedly be a mode to revisit in the future.

    Sonic & Knuckles may not be my favorite Sonic game from the Genesis days (that title still belongs to Sonic 2), but when you’re asked to pick a favorite from your favorites, can you really go wrong? Not really, and you can’t go wrong here, either.

    Sits just above average.

    I definitely recommend F.E.A.R Files to fans of the first game. Although it might look a little dated, it is packed with more of the intense F.E.A.R. action that fans of the game love.

    Samurai Warriors 2 Empires takes the hack and slash formula and adds a touch of tactics to the game, perhaps to break up the somewhat repetitive nature of the combat. It certainly works and adds an entirely new level of depth if you are seeking such things.

    While it feels a little expensive at 800 Microsoft points, Space Ark is still a fun game.

    Stuntman Ignition, sticks to the same formula while improving the only bad thing about the original and should be at least tried by anyone that isn’t afraid of a little trial and error. It’s just a shame that it won’t appeal to everyone and is let down by its poor graphics and repetitive nature.

    What absolutely kills the replay value, however, is the lack of Xbox Live play.

    The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon is a solid game weighed down by dents and dings that could have been hammered out had it been given either more time on the anvil, or a more scrutinizing once-over.

    Up
    In closing, UP is a solid game for youngsters, short and to the point, there's some easy to manage gameplay that is neither taxing or overly complex.
