    If you're more of a solo gamer that prefers a shooter with some form of campaign, then Unreal Tournament 3 is quite simply not that kind of shooter, this game is just based on all out bloody carnage in the best tournament arena available, which is online over Xbox Live.

    Ace Combat 6 is certainly a welcome addition to the Xbox 360 library of games, and although we've already had a few flying games to date, none can match the quality of Namco's efforts.

    DMC 4 is a great addition to the Xbox 360 library of games, there's no first person shooter element to be seen, and in this respect makes for a refreshing experience.

    It looks good, it plays well, it’s easy to pick up and the Street fighter theme compliments the puzzling gameplay.

    If you've not played the first game, then you'll no doubt be well pleased at having two chunks of fresh gaming to satisfy your hunger. For anyone else, the return to nostalgic realms is pleasant, but the over-familiarity of Dark Athena, might leave you burned out.

    I've thoroughly enjoyed playing Naruto: Rise of a Ninja. I find the character to be an excellent balance of oddball wacko, to someone you feel and care for.

    It is one of the best experiences of the beautiful game, but the slightly slow pace of the title doesn’t quite encourage the excitement levels beyond anything substantial.

    Mirror's Edge has been a joy to play and I've fully appreciated what DICE have tried to achieve here, although not everyone will.

    If you are into a lot of arcade puzzle games then this is a must have. It’s particularly enjoyable for all games players of all ages, there’s a lot to do and there is a good amount of challenging achievements to work for. So if you’re missing a game like Mercury on the Xbox then this is one to get.

    If you're after a game which isn't overly complex, smothered in excessive violence, has a tangible yet far fetched and uncomplicated storyline, then Alex and his powers should be right up your street, alley, road or city, whatever suits.

    Borderlands isn't the most complex of games, in fact it's quite simple as you're not really interacting much with anything like it somehow feels you should be able to. However the execution in the areas it does well in are well polished and entices gamers who have gaming addictions.

    FEAR 2 is a welcome addition to the series, is an enjoyable single player experience and well worth the price of entry.

    For those of you unsure, you can be assured of a unique visual experience probably unlike anything you have experienced, with replayability added on due to the built in local and live multiplayer support.

    If you have fond memories of Tomb Raider from 10 or so years ago, then it is very likely you will be able to pick up Tomb Raider: Anniversary and relive good times. The game might not have the best graphics and some may dislike the Tomb Raider style, but for fans, its a dream come true.

    N+
    If you’re into puzzles and you’ve never played the PC version of N, this one is a must buy.

    Commanders: Attack of the Genos is no comparison to any modern strategy, it isn’t a comparison to many strategies within the last ten years even, but this game does surpass what 80% of Xbox live arcade currently holds by a long run, as it introduces originality, character & value, this is a rarity that needs to be looked up to.

    GRID is better than many of today's highly regarded racers, yes it can be frustrating and may take some brief getting used to; however Race Driver: GRID is one rewarding drive worth taking.

    With Tales of Vesperia, I can’t assure you’ll be playing anything distinctively different to any other JRPG out there. The only part of the game that is far from usual JRPG expectations are the real-time combat mechanics, unfortunately though they cause more of a frustrating and unsatisfying button romp rather than bringing anything enjoyable to the table.

    Smackdown vs. Raw 2009 may not be perfect, but in terms of the fighting genre it’s about as good as it gets in terms of fun, value, longevity and content.

    Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts acts out its premise. It takes an old game, disassembles it, and puts it back together in a new package.

    Indiana Jones the original adventures is a fun and enjoyable game for all audiences, and that is what is important about the LEGO series brought by Tt games, most people who play this game will like it.

    It’s Different, pleasant, fun and one more reason to purchase those gamer points.

    There’s a very solid game here and with the impressive AI and the basis of a good game here, means that any future Bond games can improve on what’s already been established. This is well worth playing – for an afternoon or two.

    In closing, Naruto: The Broken Bond, isn’t the most accessible game in regards to its story, and those characters contained within; yet at the same time offers gameplay which covers a lot a ground which should keep fans / non-fans well occupied and entertained.

    Castle Crashers, even with the faults it currently has is quite possibly still the best Xbox LIVE Arcade game available.
    • 92 Metascore

    A worthy and worthwhile purchase if there ever was one during the closing moments of the Summer.

    Though there are a few hiccups in the gameplay, the sheer immersion of the ultra-realistic and well-refined perspective, combined with a beautifully detailed environment and intense and unrelenting combat, make Far Cry 2 an incredibly enjoyable game.

    Despite its occasional control flaws and sometimes unfriendly camera, Skate 2 still delivers a refreshing experience that continues to leave all other games of its kind, including the now archaic Tony Hawk franchise, eating asphalt.
    • 81 Metascore

    It’s got all the right ingredients to make it well worth playing and remembering once the game disc is placed fondly back into its case after completion.

    Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood is an enjoyable romp into the murky and dust filled world of yore.
