    If you like the show, you won't mind playing through the game to see what antics Aang and crew get themselves into in the game's original story. You'll just wish the game's shortcomings didn't get in the way.

    Not a terrible game, and it does have redeeming features, but the game design is rather lacking in ingenuity and variety. Most players will find this game to be too repetitive and too easy.

    Tube Slider had a lot of potential and new ideas, but the game is somewhat lacking in execution.

    Overall, Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia is a solidly produced title, but given its close resemblance to its predecessor and the lack of more substantial or dynamic gameplay and narrative elements, its appeal will be limited mostly to those Pokémon enthusiasts eager to see the creatures from Diamond and Pearl represented elsewhere.

    Skylanders: Swap Force on 3DS is not the best version of what will most likely be one of this year’s hottest games, but it is a version that can fulfill the needs of the gamer on the go. It may lack some of the quirks that make the console versions so appealing, but with plenty to do and plenty of Skylanders to collect, Skylanders: Swap Force will keep you reasonably entertained for quite a while.

    Cranium Kabookii is fun for a time, but only if you've got a large group of people or big family to play it with. That makes it a good rental game, but not much else.

    Gardenscapes is not a game you would want to play for long periods of time, but only when you have a few minutes to spare. It is easier than most hidden object games, so you should never become overly frustrated.

    The many changes made to the original formula in order to use the Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition engine totally transforms the game into something new. Limited controls and technology, as well as the sandbox-less gameplay, have made the title into an average, linear zombie-killing experience.

    For the money, Tamagotchi Connection's eleven minigames is definitely not a goldmine of intensely fun gameplay time, but there's still some fun to be had.

    Something like Metroid Prime 3 offers a better single-player experience (with far better visual appeal), and there are better online Wii games. Quantum of Solace is ultimately a passable shooter that, as a package, has been done better elsewhere.

    The end result is a game as refreshing as it is frustrating. It deserves credit for its originality, but not for its controls and visuals.

    Puzzle Quest isn't a bad game, but the Wii version tries very hard to make it so. It's playable as long as you don't mind squinting at the text, don't find the control scheme too uncomfortable, and don't pay much attention to music.

    These may be some of the greatest games ever made, but this package isn't worth double dipping for again.

    A middling effort from Activision.

    Witch’s Cat is brutally difficult, and frankly too much for me to handle. While I cried my way through several of the levels, I came to find that the game is well designed, but severely lacking in explanation. With a hint system, or maybe even the ability to skip levels, Witch’s Cat may be more approachable, but without those, most people should steer clear.

    Sonic Riders tries to do something new with racing but in the end doesn't deliver a polished package.

    Yoshi’s New Island looks great and plays like a Yoshi’s Island game, but that might not be enough for some people. The levels are bland, the bosses are blander, and the difficulty is too low and too static. It has bursts of creativity and maintains competency, but Yoshi’s Island deserves better than competency.

    Madden NFL Football isn't a bad game; it's just empty. The content that's there is polished, but there just isn't a lot of it.

    Far from being extreme, this Deca Sports title is best ignored. I think Hudson would do well to start making games with fewer sports in each title so they can focus a little.

    A missed opportunity. Its gameplay is quite solid and forces the player to use tact and thought to complete all of the dungeons in the game; however, the randomly-generated dungeons really detract from its otherwise engaging gameplay.

    A lot of thought and creativity went into the creation of this title. For a first time effort, it impresses.

    Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 is a better version of last year's game. It fixes some of the flaws in the previous version, and adds new modes on top of it. This is what you should expect from an annualized sports game, and while it introduces some problems of its own, it offers a solid soccer experience for the 3DS.

    Kung-Fu Panda: Legendary Warriors is one you should leave on the shelf. Even the little ones will appreciate Brawl more than this, both as a single-player game and a party game.

    Trap Team is just barely a decent supplement to the home console version, but it's certainly not strong enough to stand alone.

    As a budget title, the content goes hand in hand with the price.

    When you add camera issues to the mediocre graphics and unreliable controls, you end up with a final package that is somewhat disappointing.

    If you are a huge fan of AC/DC, don't mind live versions of their songs (all performed by Brian Johnson), and are fine with swapping out your Rock Band 1 or 2 disc, AC/DC Live is a worthy addition to your game collection. Players with only a passing interest in the band will likely want to skip the track pack as due to the extremely simple note charts, limited song variety, and difficult vocals.

    Turtle Tale is a brisk experience which features solid action platforming mechanics. However, the game’s lack of visual variety and charm feels like a melting pot of visual cliches making the complete package one that is easy to forget.

    Wii Sports demonstrated just how much depth can be wrung out of the simplest of mechanics like swinging the Remote. FIFA 08’s approach is almost the opposite, offering a huge variety of gestures that only superficially interact with the game. FIFA is a solid game, but this Wii port makes it harder than it should be to enjoy the strengths of the core design.

    The different disciplines may work in the real world, but not so much as Need for Speed ProStreet presents it in video game form. While racing game fans will find a decent NFS game behind the hip-hop facade, most people shouldn't bother with it.
