    Fans of forensic analysis and a decent mystery yarn presented in starker, more realistic tones than other DS games will enjoy this title, and we hope it becomes a franchise like Phoenix Wright, hopefully returning with more grisly crimes and more interaction with suspects and witnesses.

    Like SSX Blur, Boogie is another audio-visual feast with flawed gameplay.

    Sure, the game has its flaws and quickly becomes tedious, but it's strangely addicting in its own way.

    Another huge, glaring error on the controls in PN03 is that controlling Vanessa is like controlling an open jar of molasses through Omaha Beach.

    You'll sincerely want to accomplish goals, unlock characters, and share the experience with friends, but the game's got so much on its spinning plate there's no way to grow reasonably accustomed to any one aspect, and it's far too frenetic to be pick-up-and-play friendly.

    Overall, this is still a decent representation of Texas Hold ‘em. Digital Leisure did a good job of making sure the mechanics worked properly, and in that regard the game works wonderfully.

    Since Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam is tailored for the Saturday morning crowd, the appeal of this title is already weakened to an average Hawk fan. But with the older demographic went the intangible addictive nature of the series.

    Sure, the game barely scratches the surface of the instrument and its composition tools are pretty much useless, but the rhythm game contained within is fairly solid, has a strong selection of good classical music, is made all the more realistic and even a bit educational, thanks to the included piano peripheral.

    Like a Vegas buffet, the price is right, and there's something in here for everybody.

    A solid experience with enough variety to show most any fan of the genre a good time.

    Without learning how to best use the items and talismans available to Izuna, this is a frustrating trip. But for those who enjoy the way Izuna forces players to use more than just a handful of attacks, the strategy of battle and the joy of victory can be quite fulfilling.

    All modes are nonetheless solid, backed by a considerate number of options. A few more touches could have polished this up to a stellar game, but as is it stands at average.

    Three of the four are really good.

    Battleship, Connect Four, Sorry, Trouble is good for a single player fix. Battleship is fun, but the others lose the thrill of chance when the AI masterminds a close game.

    Aside from the price, Resident Evil 2 is a worthwhile game and is an extreme necessity to those who want to follow the series' storyline but haven't yet played the title on any other console.

    This game does a lot of things well, but being a baseball game isn’t one of them.

    Those looking for a serious RPG effort or a robust multiplayer, however, should hold onto their $50 for now.

    The game and controller is easily worth what retailers are charging, and the package is an ideal way of getting the Wii message of playing together across to the casual consumer. Wii Play is far more than just a collection of minigames, it is an extension of the console itself and should be the first port of call for all new Wii owners.

    Games of this nature need to decide, up front, who their intended audience is. Otherwise, you end up with a game that tries to be accessible to children, yet provide enough depth to please older gamers.

    The control scheme is largely a mess, but Electronic Arts succeeds in giving gamers more standard WWII action gameplay.

    At the end of the day, Decepticons comes out feeling half-baked.

    All of the elements are there for a really good game. The only things holding this back are the serious repetition and the small amount of different modifications you can do to each car.

    Judged on a point-by-point basis, Onechanbara: Bikini Zombie Slayers is not a good game; the presentation is awfully generic, the story and dialogue don’t make sense, and the gameplay is ultimately hampered by painful motion controls.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    It’s just that it isn’t all that fun, nor a worthy purchase for any serious gamer.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    The core gameplay is rather uninspired but works well enough, the visuals and audio are both mixed bags, and the campaign is a decent enough length but never really offers a great sense of accomplishment.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    The idea is solid, solid enough that it should be revisited in the future, even if the execution this time around is lacking.

    Unless you’re a hardcore racing fan, you’ll want to save this one for a rental on a slow day.

    Not a bad game, for The Sims' first handheld outing. Despite its many little flaws, Bustin' Out is still a hard game to put down.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    The game is a mixed-bag, for sure, but the highs slightly outweigh the fighting genre side effects.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    It's easy to pick up and play, yet just as easy to put away and forget about.
