    The biggest sacrifice is course variety, which wouldn’t be so bad if developer Clap Hanz hadn’t artificially lengthened the game by making you progress so slowly. The game is still quite fun, and even with only six courses, it will keep you entertained for quite a while. [JPN Import]

    It isn't without a few flaws here and there, but almost none of them are new (i.e., we've seen them before) and the pros continually make one forget about the cons. That's the mark of a game worth playing, right?

    You simply can't deny the charm and light parody afforded by these monkeys. Besides, the action does get quite good near the end; the rest of the game just needs to catch up.

    Mega Man Powered Up is the way a classic game should be remade. Capcom updated the graphics and audio to today's standards, and also tacked on a number of new features that greatly lengthen the game's staying power, but they pretty much left the original gameplay alone.

    The gameplay of Nidhogg 2 is incredibly smooth and each button press flows into the next, removing the focus on the controller and allowing the player to soak in the numerous advances MESSHOF has made as they poured their time into making a new and refreshing version of their previous title.

    I had a lot of fun playing it, and there’s a ton of replay value here to justify a sale. However, I can’t help but to be very disappointed in the lack of content and alternative endings.

    The button-mapping can take some getting used to, the story isn't particularly thrilling (although it is gross and oddly engaging), and the online issues are real. But the level design is awesome, the music is great (love Rob Zombie!), the action is ceaseless and well implemented, and the potential for addictive online multiplayer is there. Heck, it's darn close as is.

    Fighting fanatics and comic lovers alike should love the effort and attention to detail. The control is fast and reliable, the production values are high throughout, there’s appreciated accessibility combined with great depth, and experimenting with each character is awesome.

    The Long Dark is a satisfying experience of survival that is both realistic and has good game mechanics. It’s very unforgiving and can be frustrating but gets better the longer you play and learn.

    The Unfinished Swan isn't exactly a masterpiece, but at least it aspires to mastery. There are few titles that take such obvious risks and attempt to give an increasingly mainstream population of gamers an inspired, original adventure.

    It looks great, it plays great, and it’s one of those games that you can just pick up and play at a moment’s notice. That’s precisely what I ask for from this series, so I’d have to say I’m quite satisfied.

    For R&C fanatics, Into the Nexus is a return to its traditional, glorious form.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The story, tutorial, tag-team, online, and general combat are all great features, and the gameplay always runs along at a gloriously solid frame rate. And overall, it’s still an accessible yet relatively deep fighter that offers plenty of bang for your buck.

    Multiplayer has always been Virtua Tennis' strongest aspect, but you'll be disappointed to know that VT3 only supports 4 players via Ad-Hoc/LAN, as opposed to infrastructure/online.

    Fat Princess is both charming and amusing but it’s also nicely designed and capable of holding a player’s interest due to the diversity and variety found within.
    • 72 Metascore

    The diversity and pacing is appreciated, the control is spot-on, the weapons are great, and the campaign is completely satisfying. The multiplayer is crazy entertaining and the Mi6 Ops mode adds plenty to the experience.

    Visually, Sigma 2 is extremely smooth looking.

    Visually, San Andreas is pretty lackluster. The game doesn't display a single "wow" element in its visuals. The framerate is still too jerky and the pop-up is absolutely disastrous.

    This is a much better version than the already-decent PS2 version, and is mostly identical to the Xbox 360 version (the only difference being the addition of those Sixaxis motion sensing gameplay controls), so if you've been looking for a great NHL title to slake your appetite, look no further.

    Soldner-X 2: Final Prototype is a beautifully composed and ceaselessly entertaining shooter, one with an old-school feel combined with modern flash.

    Band Hero brings very little to the table, offering only a small number of minute features that add virtually nothing to the overall experience of the game.

    It's visually impressive for the PSP, with a smooth framerate, so it shouldn't bother anyone looking for a nice picture.

    As long as you don’t get frustrated with the long load times and the cumbersome way in which you must unlock things, Midnight Club 3: Dub Edition is a fantastic game. The sheer amount of content that Rockstar was able to cram into the PSP version is very impressive, and you’re sure to get your money’s worth.

    NFL Blitz has all the personality and appeal of installments during the franchise's glory days. It can feel a tad thin due to a lack of options and customization – you can't change the quarter length, for instance – but I doubt the old-school fans will be disappointed.

    There's this strange lack of weight to Kazuma's movement. It almost feels as if you're gliding around the pavement when exploring, and this sort of transfers into the combat, too. It just doesn't feel like a tight, finely honed mechanic, which brings the entire experience down a few notches.

    Just based solely on its gunplay, Alien Hominid is worthy of mention in the same breath as classic shoot-'em-ups like Contra and Metal Slug. Nonetheless, it is the game's uniquely refreshing (albeit crude) visual style and attitude that justifies the price of admission.

    Crazy Taxi: Fare Wars doesn't have nearly enough issues for it to be considered anything but a great value.
    • 80 Metascore

    It’s somewhat unfortunate that it’s not the definitive "best version" out there, as the inconsistent frame rate drops it a bit behind the Xbox 360 version, but that’s okay. It’s not visibly inferior, either, and for the most part, nothing is lacking in the PS3 version. Both are extremely well done, and that’s that.

    Despite a lot of good things, MLB 2K5 just isn’t the overall package that "MVP 2005" is.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    The control is beautiful (and I'm pretty sure the momentum physics have been ramped up), your opponent AI is intelligent and challenging at higher levels, the presentation and atmosphere is immersive, and the Career Mode never ceases to be entertaining.
