    Thankfully, there’s a rescue function, or else Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer would be endlessly difficult for many. Instead, it’s simply a tough, deliberate RPG that’s still worth the time for its challenge aspect.

    The game is solid and even if you struggle at many rhythm games, you will find yourself easily overcoming the learning curve as you drum your Patapon army to victory.

    If you played Lost Planet for the 360 then there frankly isn't any reason to spend time with the PlayStation 3 version. The original release stands out as the better version.

    Talk about a blast from the past. SEGA Bass Fishing harkens back to the days of the Dreamcast and when arcades were still clinging to life. This Wii port barely changes the original formula which turns out to be unfortunate in regards to the presentation.

    Apollo Justice delivers an evolved version of the Phoenix Wright titles, but the overall experience has been shortened dramatically.

    Fans of the Advance Wars series or folks looking for a solid strategy game should shell out the 800 Marketplace points for this title.

    While not a total loss, there's just too many other titles to choose from to give this one a slight rental recommendation.

    An absolute joy to play and the variety of puzzles throughout the game keeps the experience fresh.

    Nero brings an awesome dynamic to the franchise. Combine that with Dante's parallel mission and the game is absolutely over-the-top.

    The Spiderwick Chronicles isn’t a tough game to complete, but it can be entertaining for young fans of the books.
    • 77 Metascore

    A fun and addictive experience. It is challenging with a lot to offer and pretty good replay value. With eighty stages out of the box, that's a lot of gaming.

    Even though there were some issues in the execution of the game, it was still an enjoyable ride, albeit short.

    I applaud the developers for taking the series in a different route and creating a full-fledged adventure here.

    Travis' journey upwards in the ranks of the UAA provided some of the quickest, most viscerally charged gameplay made available across the board. Its only faults lie in its decision to focus more on the luridly uncomplicated gameplay than further expansive depth.

    The single player campaign seems short compared to its predecessor, but that may be due to familiarity of the game's design. It really doesn't make any difference though as the multiplayer options are absolutely phenomenal.

    An excellent MMO on nearly all counts, but suffers from a shockingly huge learning curve.

    While the MSRP may not scream bargain title, the overall package certainly does.

    Another case of a classic game that's just a bit overpriced on the Xbox Live Marketplace, but probably can't reduce the price due to Microsoft's pricing format.
    • 35 Metascore

    While the game seems to be somewhat technically proficient and the single player campaign is moderately extensive, the repetitive nature of the gameplay and the mind-numbing tasks tend to drag on.

    NFL Tour is really a game without an identity or purpose. You won’t feel the same visceral excitement from a round of NFL Tour as you do when playing NFL Blitz.

    The entire single player campaign is absolutely short; as in a handful of hours.

    NCAA March Madness 08 has a fair amount of improvements over the previous year; the modifications of the dynasty mode and changes to the low post play. Rent both NCAA titles to see what style of play fits you best.

    From the AI to generic gameplay and shoddy presentation values there are several things that keep this game from being as fun as it had the possibility to be. In the end this title is little more than a weekend rental for FPS fans looking for something to pass some time with.

    Godzilla Unleashed is a bad game. There’s really no way around saying it.

    What Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3 lacks in innovation it makes up for with quality. This is undoubtedly the best anime fighter available and subtle tweaks have improved it over the previous installments.

    Sure you may think it would be fun to play it on the big TV instead of your DS or PC, but the carpel tunnel inducing controls will make you wish for your thankfully discounted price back.

    There are two huge flaws in the release of Asteroids for Xbox Live arcade; the fun factor and the price.

    The DS version is also a bit more forgiving than the Wii version, so even passing fans of these kinds of games will find a lot to like here without feeling overwhelmed, making this one an even easier recommendation. This is the best shooter on the DS so far.

    Unless you have friends that will allow you to perform, or you are brave enough to try on random strangers, the game doesn't offer much to keep a solo gamer interested terribly long.

    Mass Effect certainly has flaws, but it’s easily the most enthralling space adventure that’s ever been created for a video game platform. It honestly makes the Halo narrative look like amateur hour.
