    Even though the game boasts online play, better animations, and a more accurate hitting system, it still doesn’t catch up to MVP’s dazzling action and ultra-deep franchise mode. ESPN MLB definitely gets the nod as far as online play goes.

    Its simplicity is what boosts its addictiveness. This isn’t a game about complex strategy and well timed precision; it’s a game about kicking ass and having tons of fun with your friends.

    Did GRIN do the original game justice? Definitely. GRIN has put Bionic Commando back on the map—with both of its titles, actually. Now let’s hope that Capcom keeps the cyborgs a-comin’. Two decades is too long to wait for a follow-up from such a compelling franchise.

    Unlike some classics that have been ported to XBLA, Track & Field seems to retain much of what made it fun when it first came out. It’s a title that is one of simple-to-play-yet-hard-to-master concepts—and its party potential adds to its appeal.

    The single player game modes have a fairly decent amount of depth to them, but this game really shines in multiplayer. The computer AI, even at the harder difficulty levels, provides only a moderate challenge for heavy duty football gamers.

    It’s very Diablo-like in its playability, in that it often throws a lot of opposition at you, but with a full complement of minions and a powerful weapon, you’ll usually cut through them nicely.

    An experience like no other. The gameplay isn’t revolutionary, but when all factors are brought together, the game will not disappoint those looking for a departure from the normal spy-like stealth action genre.

    But the experience of playing Perfect Dark for XBLA definitely feels behind the times.

    Plenty of depth and variety in the gameplay thanks in part to the varied control schemes and advent of the new relationship functionality. The new cooking features are a fun addition as well.

    Certainly more of a twitch/action game than the likes of Tetris or Lumines, Geometry Wars is hard to put down.

    Arguably one of the best fighters to have been created. Its graphics are unparalleled and the character models are detailed and life-like.

    Knowing full-well that real time strategy games are but faint blips on most console gamers’ radars, Ubi Shanghai knew it had to go big if Tom Clancy’s EndWar was to have a fighting chance on the Xbox 360. With a fully functional voice recognition system and solid, console-centric RTS gameplay Shanghai has succeeded in an attempt to give the strategy game its just due on the console.

    Tiger 08 gives you a ton to do, and offers lots of variety across these various events to reduce potential tedium—an effect that, unfortunately, really drags down the Skills Training section.

    Although The Simpsons Game isn't a particularly special or innovative platformer, the writing, self-deprecating humor, and in-jokes make up for many of its shortcomings. This is one of the best Simpsons video games yet, mainly due to the fact that it takes so much inspiration from the show itself.

    A truly great gameplay experience for those who can appreciate the slower manner of play. Some of the tasks can be a bit laborious which could deter some weary newbies to laying down there hard earned green for this one. Be advised, you'd be missing out on a real gem.

    It simply crushes most of the competition in terms of art direction and audio composition. The gameplay is still a bit trite, and you won't need a PHD to figure out the puzzles, but the action is still more entertaining than the original.

    WARNING: After a few hours of playing this you may notice your neck a little red.

    The golf is challenging-not an arcade-like game that makes it easy for you to whack the ball at the flag with every swing.

    I thoroughly enjoyed Domino Master and I’ll probably go back for more games even after I finish reviewing it.

    And when a downloadable game makes you keep thinking its a full retail release, it's definitely doing something right.

    Pretty fun. It won’t stop me from occasionally busting out NFL Blitz 2000 for the Dreamcast once in a while, but I know it will be a hit when the friends come over to watch the NFL this weekend.

    Solid, although somewhat short, single-player campaign and multiplayer modes that are just as fun as Halo 2. The story is slow to develop and tends to be hit or miss. The map editor is ridiculously easy to use.

    Drawing from such a huge universe of content, Shattered Dimensions does a great job at doing something new for the comic genre. While the normal fights are familiar, the tailored feel of each level to each boss is a nice touch.

    For whatever Ghostbusters: The Video Game is lacking purely as a game – and really, it’s not that much – it more than makes up for it in the production. We should hold it up as a model not just for movie into video game translations, but as an example of how you treat a beloved institution right when making a video game about it.

    There are times when the subject matter doesn't quite measure up to the gameplay, and vice versa. Thief: Deadly Shadows, although a killer PC title, doesn't seem to have the flair that makes for a strong console title.

    If gads of dialog, characters that ooze personality and freer form combat sounds like an RPG delight to you, then order up Tales of Vesperia pronto.

    The revamped NCAA Basketball 09 does a nice job of giving bracketheads what they want, despite some freshman jitters with its new engine. Even though NCAA Basketball 09 may not be a Final Four lock, it’s clear that the franchise has a winning road ahead of it.

    But even with such strong, complex multiplayer support, we can’t give Frontlines: Fuel of War a complete nod without a single player experience somehow equaling modern, fifty man mayhem via Live.

    Offers gamers a great look into the secret and mysterious world of the silent ninja, and players who enjoy the more subtle approach to gameplay will find their patience and use of strategy rather than the sword may pay off nicely.

    Aside from the flaws with the "detective" mode, and lack of direction the game provides, Cthulhu is a solid experience. An untraditional take on the FPS genre (no WWII action or one-liners here), players are sure to get taken in by the game's eerie levels, immersive world, and engrossing story.
