    Only controlling three characters, no multiplayer of any kind, and reverting to basically a 3rd-person "beat 'em up" is not the way to take this franchise.

    Overall, my biggest complaint is that the game seemed to drag on. It can be tough to pace a game that relies so heavily on puzzle-solving, but this game seemed really dull at points.

    This is a solid game, nice graphics, great controls, but most importantly, immersive engaging gameplay that makes you forget to sleep and eat.

    This is a game that mom or dad can feel safe buying for their child to play.

    Not a bad game, especially if you are a parent looking for something other than the latest shoot-em-up or blood-filled monster game.

    It was very fun for the first few stages, but didn’t really change enough from level to level.

    This is one game that general real time strategy game fans will enjoy, be you a Civil War fan or not.

    There isn't enough of a difference between this game and Outrun2 to make it worth respending $30 on.

    It is not a bad RPG, and the tanks customization and combat add a nice touch of fun, but I would not classify this as a must have title for RPG fans.

    If you own a DS, buy it. If there is a gaming bone in your body, you will be more than happy with the purchase. I don’t know if I would call Lost Magic a system seller, but put the game together with the new DS Lite and you’ve got a pretty compelling argument.

    I seriously question the longevity of this title, even with multiplayer and a ton of unlockable stuff. I think this is a weekend rental for the most part.

    If you have FIFA from last year, and you're not worried about having the official World Cup Germany licensing and such, or the new Global Challenge mode, then there's isn't that big a reason to upgrade as the gameplay is pretty similar.

    This is the first of the fully-featured Xbox 360 sports games from EA, and it's got everything you missed in the launch title. And it's definitely what I would consider to be a "next-generation" game. When you play it, you'll see from the kickoff exactly what I mean.

    If you have played through the original game than this expansion will offer you little in the way of new excitement.

    This is a great game, be you avid rally fan or a novice to the sport, this game offers something fun for all takers. If you have a PC that can handle the game and you like racing games in the least I would have to recommend you take a look at this title.

    Tomb Raider fans finally once again have that must-have.

    I expected more from the single player than I got, especially having time between the current-gen and Xbox 360 version. Weapons upgrades and unlockables are cool, but a storyline that really doesn't go anywhere or suck you in, combined with still lackluster computer AI bring the experience down.

    But I can tell you that it's an upgrade from the Xbox version, as it should be. It looks better, and it plays better now that the fielding works correctly now.

    In the end I must say this game does a great job of simulating the experience of Axis and Allies the board game, just updated and enhanced with the power of a computer.

    The game has attitude to it that other games don't. And it looks good too.

    For those who aren’t familiar with the series, you won’t find anything here that will knock you over. Without understanding how good the other games were, you won’t have the context to see this one as anything but a sub-par WWII game.
