    2K Sports has put a lot of effort into making this one a far greater effort than before, and despite a few hiccups and lack of new content for My Player or Franchise, it's still quite the run around the diamond. Play ball!

    Yeah, it would've been nice to have a downloadable upgrade rather than pay for a new product, and more modes would've been nice, but Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 still does what it set out to do, enhancing the original experience with a great new slew of characters and added features. Fighting fans will definitely get their fill with this, especially once they get their hands on Ghost Rider and Rocket Raccoon.

    It's another dose of Konami arcade goodness, with up to six players taking part in the over-the-top comic book action.

    With long lasting Mission mode, an unlockable Boss Blitz mode, satisfying Achievement Points, and smooth and addictive Live play, Heavy Weapon adds its name to the list of must-own Arcade titles.

    Don’t let Tomb Raider: Underworld go under your radar, there is plenty of things to do with Miss Lara; including a future promise of exclusive downloadable content for the Xbox 360.

    It's still a hell of a relaunch to a long-running series, an imaginative – and captivating – trip through various game types, including overhead bombing and some breathtaking dogfights. If you thought Wings of Liberation was a nice piece of flight fun, you haven't seen anything yet.

    Bad Company 2's single-player proves far more compelling than its predecessor's, standing up as much more than just preparation for the multiplayer portion of the game, which is undoubtedly what most players will be buying Bad Company 2 for.

    Small issues aside (including the lack of co-op on the disc), Warhammer 40K Space Marine is an epic battle that deserves your time and attention. The multiplayer, despite being barebones, is great fun, and the single player campaign offers plenty of blood to spill, even if you're a newbie to Games Workshop's world.

    The multiplayer serves up a hearty meal, the graphics are improved, and the campaign will consume many hours of your life.

    Perfect Dark Zero is a game you can pick up and play, you are put straight into the action from the beginning, and the action doesn’t stop until the last minute. While the single player can be considered a bit of a let down the multiplayer mode makes up for it. The game is a good comeback for Rare, and provides the perfect introduction to a new console.

    More fighters and options the next time around would be the way to go for this series.

    It really is like WWE in it's current state: stale, unimaginative, and afraid of new ideas. But, unlike the real WWE, it is the only option out there for a solid wrestling title.

    The gameplay itself is engaging and fun, and online play works pretty good, though there were times we ran into some lag, particularly during Jack Attack rounds.

    At 1200 Microsoft points, Quake Arena Arcade may not be your ideal first-person shooting experience on Xbox Live – especially since other games run for 800 or even less. But if you're a Quake fan or need a fulfilling multiplayer experience that will keep you busy for hours, you owe it to yourself to enter the Arena.

    Beyond Good & Evil HD is a finely crafted remake that's well worth the 800 Microsoft points. Buy it for yourself…and then your pig uncle.

    For 800 points, you get two hours of linear combat, new items, achievements, and a couple of holotapes that detail a soldier’s experience. I appreciate Bethesda giving me a glimpse into Fallout’s lore (future), but the immersion that makes the game so tantalizing is absent during the entire quest.

    It may not be as legendary as Wii Sports (yet), but for a debut sports compilation for Microsoft's high-priced gadget, Kinect Sports does more than enough to push the thrill of competition. It's good fun with friends, and the easily adaptable controls make it very user friendly, no matter what your height and age is.

    Saints Row 2 is a extremely entertaining action title that will win over tons of new fans with its craziness.

    The original is a more inspired game, but kudos to Spicy Horse for making this second foray through the looking glass more than tolerable.

    The story is tight and fast-paced; the presentation really shows Beenox's improvements over the past few months; and the gameplay is engaging, even if there's not much actual web-slinging to do this time around.

    The unfortunate truth is that while it’s a decent game, it doesn’t rise above that initial excitement.

    Warriors of Rock satisfies with a mostly rousing list of songs, still-addictive-as-ever gameplay and plenty of options for both solo players and groups. The only question now is what's left to do for the next time around.

    A welcome return to the "bullet hell" tradition, but offers enough new content and goodies like leaderboards and extra modes to keep it from being just another offering in the genre. It might be too tough for some, but hey, you gotta learn your skills somewhere, right?

    There's something for everyone here, and despite a few blemishes, it's one of the better games in town.

    Everything is not perfect but as far as movie games go this is simply put one of the best out there. Any fan of the X-Men universe should give the game a chance, but those who have been waiting for a Mature version of Wolverine to come around should rush out and pick X-Men Origins: Wolverine as soon as mutantly possible.

    Whether you need to use your environment, lure an enemy to its demise, or choose a specific weapon, you’ll be satisfied with the experience.

    Much like chess, you can learn how to use the pieces in an hour, but learning to use them skillfully takes time and patience. If you can handle a bit of a learning curve and some clunky controls, this game will reward you with challenging and enjoyable game play.

    I’m happy to report that this is one of the better retro revamp titles to come along. Despite that, many gamers will have to give this game a second thought before spending the 800 points, due to the low replay value and lack of multiplayer.

    Considering the subject material there are not many other games like it (F.E.A.R.) and the unique character-switching feature helps it pick up a few points. The nice variation in weapons and magical powers also keeps the average gameplay from getting too boring.

    The design is quite inspired for a product designed for younger players, and the presentation is surprisingly high in value.
