    If you like skin-of-your-teeth puzzle games, Mr. Driller is an excellent choice. However, this version's stinted multiplayer, minimal single player modes, and high difficulty will leave the game lacking in the eyes of all but the most dedicated puzzle-heads.

    There isn't as much depth as you wish there was.

    Children who are fans of Neopets could do much worse than Neopets Puzzle Adventure, as could serious fans of puzzle games. While the game is not quite of Puzzle Quest's caliber, it still offers a solid and fun experience that is only hampered by a lack of depth in its story mode.

    Art Style: Aquia is an original take on the match-three puzzle genre, and its ominous setting make for a nice puzzle environment. However, it lacks variety and is quite difficult.

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

    It’s a one-note game at times, but it sure beats another Pokémon game bringing back the style of Yoshi’s Cookie.

    The improved graphics do make the game more pleasing to look at when you actually get a chance to drift your gaze away from the fret board. However, constant repetition of songs makes the set list obnoxious after awhile – even the songs that you do like.

    There is nothing inherently challenging about the mechanics of Samurai Defenders, because it is ultimately the same tower defense game we have all played before.

    While not a bad game, it doesn't do anything to stand out even amongst its relatively weak competition on Wii. It is fun, but it just doesn't last.

    Final Fantasy Explorers is layered with systems and mechanics, some of which are great and others that aren’t. It all works best when it’s dripping with nostalgia, which might not make for an amazing game, but it makes for a good time if you’re a fan of Final Fantasy. It doesn’t have the nuance or depth of a Monster Hunter game, but it’s a decent, enjoyable experience that is well worth checking out, especially if you can play locally or online.

    It isn't an amazing adaptation, but Avalanche Software made it all work, creating a video game that fans of the movie and the Cars franchise as a whole can enjoy. What the title manages to achieve is enough to forgive some of its shortcomings.

    Its greatest failing is simply that the fun ends too soon.

    The game is only moderately difficult (and, as with most Disney games, cheat codes are included), the graphics are pretty, and you're rewarded with short clips from the movie whenever you pass a level.

    As you may have heard, this is the best Harry Potter videogame yet. But that's like saying "Bloodrayne" is the best Uwe Boll movie yet -- it might be true, but it doesn't mean much.

    At the end of the day, Magical Starsign is your average, run-of-the-mill JRPG with some touch screen gameplay thrown in, hoping to disguise an old horse as a new pony.

    Chances are that players anticipating a wacky brand of golf are going to be frustrated by the precision-based swinging, while die-hard golf addicts will be put off by the silly elements.

    Call of Duty: Ghosts is an alright game, but it doesn't push the boundaries as much other entries in the franchise.

    If the location sub-areas were each as large as a full location, this game would be a blast, even with its other blemishes. In the end though, Downhill Jam is too short, and with the recent announcement of a full-fledged "SSX" game coming to the Wii in 2007, anybody looking to pick up Downhill Jam might want to think twice.

    Billy and Mandy's gameplay is chaotic and exciting but ultimately gets boring after an hour or two, even when playing with other people.

    Those that have played the other games in the DreamWorks Animation series might get a feeling of déjà vu when experiencing it, but if you’ve never played any of the other games, Monsters vs. Aliens should impress with its solid approach to an equally memorable film.

    I wish The Glory of Heracles had taken a few more risks.

    It is probably designed for children more than anyone else, and they will get the most out of it and be less distracted by the poor acting and storytelling.

    All in all, Active Life: Outdoor Challenge separates itself from Wii Fit as its own game, and succeeds quite well at it. While the different activities have a dearth of variety, it is still a fun experience for all ages.

    Where Secret Rings really falls apart is in level design. Replicating the main mistake of Shadow the Hedgehog, Sonic Team has put too many obstacles in the way of Sonic as he attempts to zoom through a level at high speed.

    Having three wizards running around and casting spells at the same time allows for some interesting gameplay, but you'll only get to experience it if you have friends to play with.

    If you just got your GameCube at the reduced price and demand Mario Party action, please buy this game instead of "Mario Party 4." Otherwise, stick with the Party you’ve got.

    The presentation might be lacking, but there's still a good deal of content tucked away in this package.

    If you already like Duel Masters, have lots of the cards, and like its game mechanics, go ahead and get the GBA version. It sports a whole lot of what you already like. But if you are like me and are getting quite burned out on the whole card battling scene, this game most definitely will not change your mind about it.

    The main control scheme works really well and makes the game worth a rental for anyone who just wants to get their hands on a Wii shooter. However, some of the simpler tasks are somehow completely broken, and the game as a whole is pretty uninspiring.

    A satisfying platform brawler that should easily please younger gamers while providing enough action and humor to keep older gamers interested.
