    The only reason you'll finish this game is for the story. I know it right off the bat. The gameplay is lame and uninspired. It is way too easy and the level design is extremely linear.

    Obscure doesn’t attempt to do anything different. Hydravision is comfortable with crafting a respectable survival horror game and Obscure fits that profile well.

    When it comes down to it, King of Fighters: Maximum Impact isn’t a particularly memorable fighting game on its own merits.

    Unless you're tired of World War II games or really require your flight games to have extremely realistic controls, there is a lot to like in Heroes of the Pacific.

    The gameplay is very similar to previous games. If you haven’t played any, that isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

    On the GBA, Jimmy Neutron: Attack of the Twonkies doesn’t distinguish itself as much as it does on the console versions. Nonetheless, the game remains a solid platformer with enough variety to keep the game interesting.

    Samurai Shodown V isn't the best looking or most refined fighter available, but it does work well enough including a fully functional online mode.

    And1 Streetball has some good ideas like the pulling off juke moves with the analog stick but unfortunately some technical errors are too much to ignore.

    Lair is a tough game to rate. One on hand, the game is absolutely gorgeous and easily justifies the thousands of dollars spent on the latest home theater equipment. On the other hand, the gameplay is so fundamentally broken that it’s difficult to imagine anyone sticking with Lair through its ending.

    The commentary, though accurate, is repetitive and doesn’t induce you to pay attention. It just isn’t very interesting to hear the same lines over and over again.

    The action is competent if underwhelming but some of the career mode choices were right on. Indeed, Juiced is hurt more by its release date than anything else.

    Sony’s NBA 08 is a solid basketball gamebut the actual gameplay isn’t as tight as its competitors. The lack of a franchise mode hurts the game and while The Life is still plenty of fun to play through, it may not be enough to pull the game up for most people.

    A solid if unexciting WWII game on either platform. There’s little reason to pick up the game unless you blasted through "Call of Duty 3" and are looking for more.

    A big part of what made the PC version be so great was the whole atmosphere; you felt like you were in Chicago in the 1930s. Unfortunately, the visual inedibility of the PS2 version takes a good chunk of this feeling.

    Its portrayal of the card game is fun in its own away and pretty accurate, as well. If the whole monster fighting thing eluded you, chances are that Duel Masters isn't going to change your mind.

    Heroes of the Pacific isn’t really a sim in any stretch of the word. That said, the game plays well, has a pretty good online mode, and provides a satisfying single player mode.

    Only the most diehard Pokemon fans should ever consider picking this game up. The gameplay isn’t especially interesting, the game makes poor use of the Nintendo DS hardware, and the presentation is seriously outdated.

    The gameplay is tight enough and the presentation is good, ensuring that fans of The Incredibles will get their money’s worth. For everyone else though, there are better NDS titles available.

    It is fun for the same reason that something like Serious Sam is fun to play: the simplicity of it all. Fans of previous games may be a little turned off by the new arcade-like gameplay, though.

    Best $10 game of all time? Probably.

    The single-player modes are marred by questionable AI which removes much of the intensity and in effect, fun, of playing the game.

    The Gameboy Advance version is decent, but it doesn't come close to capturing the World Cup as well as the console versions or even the DS version.

    A solid tactical shooter for PS2 owners, but with Rainbow Six 3 and SOCOM II currently engaging gamers, there are better choices.

    A run of the mill game. When you play this game you feel as though this game should be better than it is.

    The game's combat system is surprisingly fun despite being quite button-mashing friendly.

    Is Soldier of Fortune: Payback a bad game? No, not really. It's a rather enjoyable (if simple) and good looking shooter. It's just that there have been so many amazing playing and looking games in the past few months, that Payback can't compare in comparison.

    If simple fun is what you’re looking for, you can’t get much better than Serious Sam.

    Ford Bold Moves is a safe, by-the-book racing game that incorporates some rather fun team racing.
