    Overall, the sound is probably one of the biggest factors of the game that really makes you feel like you are a part of the Star Wars universe.
    • 73 Metascore

    Has its flaws, such as the camera and clunky controls, but is a nice total package. It definitely captures the feeling of the Buffy universe in more ways than one.

    While Koei has done a fantastic job in bringing DW4 over from the PS2 it would be nice to see the Xbox used a bit more towards its capacity.

    Expect many to rejoice in trivia paradise online or with friends at home to this basic, yet solid, title. Now put down the mouse and pick up the die because it’s time for me to roll on out. Cheesy? You’re damn straight it is!

    While I applaud the extra missions, MSCS shadows their importance and lessened my affinity for this unreal coin-op title.
    • 61 Metascore

    There is some fun to be had both in single player and multiplayer game modes, but there aren't a lot of areas that Rogue Agent separates itself from the competition.

    The concept of Iron Phoenix is very intriguing and it has been pulled off nicely. A sixteen player online fighter is innovative, but Iron Phoenix's execution holds it back just slightly.

    Crash "N' Burn will frustrate the hell out of you since it demands so much more from its competitors than nearly every other arcade-type extreme racer.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    One of the best platformers currently available on the Xbox and the gameplay is surprisingly challenging and deep. The humor of the script is what keeps Tak 2 an enjoyable game to play through and is reminiscent of movies like "Toy Story" and "Monsters Inc."
    • 71 Metascore

    If you have a love for the Koei/Omega Force titles, you would be a fool not to check out Samurai Warriors, which trumps "Dynasty Warriors" in just about every area.
    • 71 Metascore

    A pretty decent kids game based off of a movie franchise, which is almost unheard of in the current days of the console.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    If Cheech and Chong meet "El Mariachi" sounds good to you, then pick up Total Overdose stat. If you can't stand the notion of a Mexican shooting range scored on accuracy and presentation, then you may want to hold onto those pesos.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    The game was actually humorous and fun, and the introduction of two players is an unbelievable welcome to the series. However, the overall experience winds up being repetitious by the end, and rather short.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    The Campaign mode is worth the ticket into the stadium, and there's enough attitude here to keep you occupied well into the fourth quarter.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    The close-quarters fighting system is by no means deep, but the inclusion of the style system and the takedown attacks makes for some interesting hand-to-hand scenarios. The acrobatic moves don't hurt either.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    Gun
    It's tough to recommend GUN at its full sticker price for what it is, and that is an excellently told, eight-hour story wrapped up in the guise of an action videogame masquerading as a Western.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    It's a little disheartening to see how much the Xbox version is missing when compared to its Xbox 360 doppelganger, but I suppose that's what you should expect when you pay forty bucks less for a game.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    An innovative game that brings fresh air to genre.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    RoadKill is fueled by over the top gun-fire, ridiculously tricked out cars, and just the right amount of profanity to satisfy your desire for a little fun blowin’ sh*t up in a busy metropolitan environment.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    The suspect cameras and lack of solid or customizable controls will undoubtedly make some gamers mad they picked this one up. The rest of you who are used to mediocre controls (read: PC gamers) and are fans of taking turns will dig Worms 3D: Special Edition in a big way.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    The camera system prevents the story mode from being the heart pounding, wind-through-your-hair experience that was intended. The team-based gameplay feels forced and takes a lot of the creativity away.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    Like a blockbuster action movie, there are definitely moments when Stranglehold drags (the second level was tedious), but there’s no doubt that your heart will be pumping by the time you make your way through the later levels.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    Overall the same game that we’ve enjoyed for the past four years. New features like Crease Control, ProControl, and On-The-Fly Coaching are welcome additions, but this isn’t really a "next-gen" game.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    The disappointment from playing Force Unleashed comes from some really high expectations, ones that the game sets up itself in the early going. The storyline is so good, the graphics simply amazing, the whole thing just so classic Star Wars that it almost hurts when I think about how much the game pissed me off.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    To Ubisoft’s credit, they did as much as they really could have with the original content, and should be merited for the game’s feature set; especially the online four player co-op.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    It’s not an elaborate game, but it does grow on you as you try to progress further through the levels.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    It’s almost the lack of innovation that makes this fun, as it’s a throwback to the original TR game of 1996. It just doesn’t take a lot of chances either.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    Even with some of the gameplay issues that, if avoided, could have helped to make a better overall game, FIFA Street 3 is still a fun pick-up-and-play experience for the raving soccer fan.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    Fans of DBZ and lovers of other Dimps-branded Dragon Ball titles, as mentioned earlier, will want to rush out and pick Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit up. Hardcore fighting gamers will also enjoy the ranged stick-and-move nature of this unique fighter.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    Had the visuals been taken up a notch, and if B.J. would have been a bit more of a bystander in the Veil portions, Wolfenstein could have been one of the elites. But as it sits, Wolfenstein is a solid shooter that fans of its predecessors will enjoy.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    For those who don’t care about the game’s look, but simply want to play with a remote friend or not have to bother with the rules/dealing minutia, Duels of the Planeswalkers will probably be a great buy.
    • 74 Metascore

    Yes, Droplitz is an easy game that’s not all that easy.
    • 56 Metascore

    Death by Cube is such a simple game, yet so much fun and so satisfying once you dig in to the upgrade systems.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    There’s much worse out there, and even though Scrap Metal may not rise too far above the heap, but it’s definitely up there, on pure fun alone.

    Full House Poker is easy to learn, easy to get into, but challenging and increasingly rewarding so I'm pretty sure you'll be seeing me hitting the tables once the game releases on March 16th.
    • 70 Metascore

    With just a bit better speed sense and a few additional games modes, Yager could be a top notch affair.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    A sluggish and repetitive combat system and overly simplistic RPG elements leave The Bard's Tale wondering exactly what type of game it is. It does have plenty of hilarious moments, but ironically many of the aspects that the game pokes fun at in relation to other RPGs, it suffers from as well.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    Those who grew up playing these games and have forgotten how bad they look will be reminded, but will still enjoy the simplicity of the gameplay, coupled with a severe hand-eye coordination workout.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    If you're looking for a very good co-op game, or a well developed single player campaign with few issues, then Rogue Trooper would be a perfect choice.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    Being that March Madness 06 is essentially an identical game as last year's it's hard to give this one props for advancing the series. The lockdown stick does improve on defensive mechanics but winning half of a battle won't win many wars.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    Something this title achieves that other "sandbox" style games tend to put on the backburner is a great story, which actually had us caring about characters and seeing their plights played out on screen.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    Gun
    Fast paced action, with a fast-paced storyline that ends much too soon. The game feels like an unbalanced mix of realistic combat and shooting gallery mechanics.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    It’s certainly not so bad that it’ll ruin the series name for future releases and it does provide a fair amount of gameplay potential despite its flaws and glitches, but it will surely upset some of its player base who expected that the title would be a vast improvement—a next-generation title that pushed their system to new heights of performance.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    If multiplayer coin-op games that can be played over Xbox Live sounds appealing, then Gauntlet is surely worth the few bucks it costs to download it. I’m warning you know though: Gauntlet isn’t really about skill - it’s more about having enough credits to finish the entire game.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    The game’s basic concept, and IO’s commitment to give gamers a multiple paths to an ending while still pushing for “transparency” should be applauded. But a two year 47 hiatus and no real signs of an inventory system or A.I. improvement hurts like a 7.62mm round to the spleen.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    If you’re more aligned with Bridge than you are with Go Fish, and don’t mind Lady Luck dropping into the pot every now and again, Culdcept Saga may just be the console game departure that you’ve been craving.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    I wish that Mirror’s Edge was more like a rock-climbing course (or like the climbing mechanic in "Assassin’s Creed") that gives you numerous ways to reach the spot you need to reach, though with the occasional stumper that gets you scratching your head to find the solution. Instead, I found myself frustrated by the do-it-again-until-you-get-it-right gameplay, which was more tedious than challenging—much like the platformers of the NES era. Those old classics were designed that way because of cartridge-memory limitations, but Mirror’s Edge can’t use that excuse.
    • 64 Metascore

    Playing the original ROM of Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe is great, but we were hoping that the Xbox Live Arcade graphically enhanced gameplay would be a bit better.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    It is a series I’d like to see continue, because it is fun as a party game and for Xbox 360 owners looking for some variety from the ongoing flood of sports games, action titles and shooters. I just think it needs to go through some serious improvements.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    No frills racing action that isn’t quite as enjoyable for those that like the console bells and whistles.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    Pick up Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 if you are a huge fan of the series or need a fresh football fix. Everyone else would be better off snatching up a used copy of "FIFA 09" from the preowned rack.
    • 71 Metascore

    There are only a few fighters that are more lighthearted and pick-up-and-play-enjoyable than Battle Fantasia, but such whimsy and simplicity come at a premium price in the land of fighting games.
    • 45 Metascore

    This is certainly a caveat emptor type of purchase, with a run at the trial version being is smart move.

    You can’t ignore that R-Type Dimensions offers another taste of classic gaming, with some enhancements to make it more attractive and contemporary, and that’s playable from the comfort of the living-room couch.

    As an avid poker player, it was fun to see a twist on the game offered on XBLA. And while Texas Cheat ’Em isn’t going to be a blockbuster hit because of its niche-like following and gameplay redundancy, it’s a fun contest for those who are familiar with poker or would like to mess around with a poker variant that has a devious side.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    KoFUM is still worthy of a solid score, due to the fact that it’s still one of the better pure fighters ever made, but it will be hard for casual brawler fans to realize its allure.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    Reflex isn’t quite where it should be, but it’s getting better. Here’s hoping that the next one is a more polished, cherry ride, because fans deserve that—and the franchise will certainly garner a much bigger user base if that can be accomplished.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    Its arcadey action, solid visuals and addictive co-op play make it one hell of a slaughter fest for just 800 Microsoft Points (or about $10).
    • 70 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    There are some nice additions that increase the competitive side, which is good, but it doesn’t seem like a separate $60 bundle as much as it should have been a $30 or $40 expansion pack.
    • 78 Metascore

    For those of you who've played the previous versions to death, then you may want to pass on this and wait for part 3 to come out early next year.

    It really gives the sensation of an adrenaline rush as you play this game.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    Fast, fun, and graphically pleasing. It's an awesome party game, and it's shortcomings in story, character choice, voice work, [and] single-player mode can't change that.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    While the game might not sport earth shattering graphics or a detailed storyline, the fun factor of this game will slowly grab you and you will become more addicted the more time you spend playing it.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    Even with all of these great aspects, I feel that a terrible mistake was made by not including any multiplayer modes or extending the game time.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    There are a few overly frustrating missions that will drive you absolutely nuts too. I found myself saying, "wow this is the sweetest game," during one mission and then, "jeeze, is this annoying," in another.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    With a more detailed multiplayer mode and maybe a bit more in the way of choices that may effect the game’s outcome, Dark Summit could be a leader in a new series of sports/adventure titles to come.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    The racing system is good enough that you can forget all about the tricks and still have a great time. The controls for pulling off tricks are simple and easy, but yet allow for the extreme in all of us to enjoy this game.

    If you’re a true surfer, I would think that this game would be a must have. People who enjoy other “board” games will also rate this game very high.
    • 79 Metascore

    While the fact that the game can be completed in 7-10 hours may turn off some tastes, it is still an enjoyable 7-10 hours.

    The visuals, although not up to the Xbox’s standards are good. The gameplay is only hindered by the button placement on the Xbox controller and that is not EA’s fault.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    When you get down to the nitty gritty it seems that the chit-chat is what makes the game and the whole “mech aspect” was more of an afterthought.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    The game will definitely have you busting a gut laughing and is even better when shared with friends. The single player mode, graphics, and especially audio are really polished but the game still feels like it could have used a little more "umph".
    • 71 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    A solid platform game that is fun to play, but it is not without its pitfalls that will leave you somewhat frustrated.

    While the Bruce Banner missions are mind-numbing and the camera could use some extra tweaking, the Hulk still manages to play very smoothly and delivers an aura of excitement that can only be felt otherwise by going to see the actual movie.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    The gameplay is great, graphics are above par for a baseball title, and the audio is exactly what it should be. On a negative note, there is slim to none single player existence so SlugFest is a multiplayer game in all its glory.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    The gameplay still remains as rambunctious as ever, but the available modes of play are definitely lacking.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    Although the lackluster land gameplay drags the experience down a bit, the sailing parts of the game are just so exciting and enthralling that you can totally forget about the less riveting parts of the game. I do prefer Bethesda's other published RPG, "Morrowind," because there is simply more to do.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    There are plenty of methods in which to wreak havoc and weapons like the Land Shark Gun are fun as hell, but no matter how you dress things up, Armed & Dangerous is simply an above average third-person shooter.

    Without a doubt the best of the Ridge Racer series, and its name suits it well as it has evolved to modern gaming.

    • 66 Metascore

    The linear gameplay, camera system and shortness of the game make this not a title for everyone, but it still warrants a glance just to witness the goodness that is Rare.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    The ultimate hybrid of the old-school arcade game and next generation console. Your hands are going to hurt at the end of this game, but it’s going to be a blast.
    • 69 Metascore

    It is true that there are some gameplay redundancies and a healthy amount of character interaction issues, but will a kid point to mommy and say “look at all of the clipping issues!”, or “look at all of the horseys!”?

    Codies also knows how to write code for Live, making the twelve car action run as smoothly as a baby’s bottom. Graphics are pretty weak, and so are any chances for replayability, since everything is left hand turns.

    We don't yet think Eidos has ironed out all the wrinkles, but we definitely think they are taking the series in the right direction, as Backyard Wrestling 2: There Goes the Neighborhood is a straight-up, screw the WWE brawler that gamers with a few screws loose will enjoy.

    These types of games do become repetitive and this certainly applies here as well, but thanks to a strong story written by NY Times best-selling author R.A. Salvatore, Demon Stone has a lot more going for it than most titles in the genre.

    An extremely stylistic experiment with a well-tailored story and high production values that offers us a glimpse of what lies ahead in gaming, but overwhelmingly shows that we still have a long way to go.

    The story mode has plenty of depth and is fun to pass around with a group of friends. Multiplayer is severely lacking and it’s a shame that Amped 3 can’t reach its full potential without it.

    Don’t download this one expecting anything more than a handful of variations of Spades, a cache of useless fooms, and a new age soundtrack that even Enya could hate. But if you like Spades enough, the quirky details of Hardwood Spades won’t matter much.

    There’s plenty of nostalgic, and newly added, fun to be had in Robotron: 2084. Both those who have played the original to death and those who have never blasted their way through the game will have tons of fun with the added multiplayer features.
