    Whether you’re a young RPG lover who wants to see where it all began, or an elder who wants to relive their glory days, you need to immediately dish out five bones and give Gauntlet a whirl.

    Poor dialogue may occasionally shatter this otherwise remarkable backdrop, but the rest of the story is more than adequate enough to convey a story of love, struggle, life, and death; at times in captivating ways.

    It’s odd that a game with so much new content could feel so familiar, but such is the case with Proving Ground. I think it’s time for Neversoft to go back to the drawing board and seriously attempt to innovate if they ever expect this Hawk to fly as high as it once did.

    It's actually nothing of the sort; it comes off as a mix between Fable and God of War. It may seem weird to compare and combine games, but it's the best example to avoid confusion.

    It is fast-paced, in your face action non-stop. You'll never have a breather when you battle the onslaught of enemies before you. The translation from PC to Xbox is smooth enough to warrant playing the Xbox version over the PC rendition to avoid using a keyboard.

    While the game isn't ground breaking with any new technologies, the flexibility of the game play will keep you interested.

    I really wanted to love this game, I truly did, but it was just way too repetitive for me. Walking around slowly and eating brains is only fun for so long.

    SSX: On Tour does a great job with the Tour Mode and Monster Tricks system, but it just comes down to not enough being offered.

    The basic summary of the Xbox 360’s Madden 06 is the Xbox version with amazing graphics and a ton of cut out features.

    The arcade style shooting mixed in with the Hollywood blockbuster epicness delivers one of the more satisfying action games in recent years. If you’re a skeptic you should at least give Mercenaries 2 a shot.

    Hardcore fans of the Prince of Persia series might want to pick this one up if you’re curious as to how the series began, but don’t expect a stellar experience like Sands of Time.

    It’s disappointing that this product didn’t achieve as much as it could’ve accomplished, but as a pure thrill-based action game, you could certainly do a lot worse.

    A fun experience that should be loved by many.

    A good romp, easily a step above the usual licensed junk that saturates the market around the holiday season. There just really isn't anything bad or good about Aeon Flux; it's a slightly above average game that doesn't really bring anything new to the table.

    Proves to fall a bit flat due to its lack of depth and its lack of improvement from the Xbox version. The visuals and physics have been enhanced, but those are the only areas where significant changes have been made.

    Although Carcassonne may not have the depth of strategy that you see in Catan, it still holds its own as a stable addition to the Live Arcade.

    I can 100% guarantee that if the Doom name was not attached to this game, no one would pay this repetitive game any attention and it would hit the bargain bin like it deserves.

    Getting Up is incredibly easy. There are plenty of health power ups scattered throughout the game and I only died one time (due to a cheap move I didn't expect) during the final boss fight.

    It's not that Quake 4 is necessarily bad. It isn't. It's just so unoriginal, cliché, and average that it almost hurts.

    The Godfather on the Xbox 360 isn’t a bad title; it’s just too similar to the Xbox version. There are a few new features and tweaks in the game, but nothing that has you wanting to play the game all over again.

    A pretty average game. You have fairly simple combat with a few nice graphical touches. Nothing really stands out as overtly good or bad, and everything here has pretty much been seen before in some form or fashion.

    There isn’t anything flashy about this title, but you have enough options at your disposal to vary the game. Given the low price tag (400 MS Points); this game will be a good pickup for Spades fans.

    If you want to play an average Star Wars experience, The Force Unleashed is par for the course. Those of you looking to have an engaging video game experience, may want to invest time looking elsewhere, or rather, replay God of War, since this is practically the same game.

    In the end, Stuntman Ignition may be frustrating, difficult, and require a large amount of patience, but it’s undeniably fun.

    Bugs are where True Crime not only stumbles, but falls flat on its face. It is riddled with bugs, so much so that playing the game itself becomes a problem.

    Despite my complaints, GripShift isn’t a bad game, it’s just flawed in all the wrong places and at the end of the day, it’s completely unremarkable.

    Overall, Blitz: The League II suffers from terrible announcers, annoying soundtracks and a boring campaign mode.

    Adrenaline mode is one of the most ridiculous things I have ever seen in a game. The very idea of an invincible soldier in a WWII game just does not make any sort of sense. The same goes for the revive feature. I know what the intent behind this was, but I would much rather use the good old-fashioned checkpoint method.

    While FFXI is the most addicting game I’ve ever played, I will confess that it is an unfriendly place for newbs.

    Although TimeShift brings a neat gimmick to the table, that's about all it brings.
