    While the lack of online tour mode is a huge letdown and the song selection is geared too much at younger generations, Rock Band is still above and beyond anything the Guitar Hero series has offered as of late.

    Here’s a better idea, though: Find a cheap used copy of Soulcalibur II for the Gamecube and play that on the Wii. It’s the fighting game that you expect Soulcalibur to be, it’s a deeper game, and hey… it’s got Link.

    Twitch gamers will eat this up, and Galaxies is an easy game to go back to every now and then to unlock new planets or try to break those high score records that you set.

    But the real question is does the game itself warrant the purchase, and bluntly I don’t think it does. Arcade games are short, very short – and while that’s not a reason to ignore a game in the case of a one trick pony like Time Crisis 4 it is a reason to ignore it.

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

    NFS Prostreet is a highly polished title, but completely absent of entertainment value.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Sloppy and muddy controls, a broken aiming mechanism combined with a couple of characters who you’ll never really care for at any point make for a dull and tedious gaming experience. Compound that with the shoddy squad mechanics, lack of online co-op, and a seemingly broken online experience doesn’t make the game sound appealing in the slightest.

    The cramped controls, three hour campaign and an aged online component detract from an otherwise polished experience.

    This is a problematic PSP title that probably never should have seen the light of day.

    It offers addictively fun gameplay, beautiful visuals and music, and delivers some truly memorable moments that will shock and surprise you. If you own a Wii, this is your Holy Grail and without a doubt should be for centerpiece of your software library.

    After about an hour—if that long—the game will have given most players all it’s got.

    It’s very much geared toward a laid back style of play that’s surprisingly difficult to transition into when playing anything else on the Xbox 360.

    LucasArts and Travellers’ Tales have been a great job of making the Lego Star Wars experience portable and a genuine blast to play.

    For full price, though, there are just too many other games that outshine Neves in almost every way and it’s better to just skip it altogether.

    All in all, you cannot go wrong with a quality title like this that brings gamers and non-gamers together in a battle of trivia knowledge.

    The narrative of either expansion doesn’t even come close to offering a satisfying conclusion to the original story and the multiplayer options are humdrum to say the least.

    While the Windows for Live process has been poorly implemented across the board for these new Microsoft PC titles, the addictive nature of Viva Piñata will delight people of all ages and keep you pecking away at the keyboard to mate your newly acquired species of Piñata.

    If you are looking for a game experience similar to recent Final Fantasy games, you will ultimately be disappointed with Radiant Dawn. However, if you craved focused gameplay and a story without embellished full voice acting or tons of FMV cut scenes, then Radiant Dawn fits the bill.

    It's a rock-solid title that pushes the envelope and shatters expectations.

    While the controls are occasionally a bit troublesome, the entertaining single player campaign, loads of mini-games and well balanced set of achievements definitely offer an excellent Xbox 360 gaming experience.

    An awesome game that is a must for every PSP owner.

    While playing through the game was actually quite enjoyable thanks to the humor aspect, the gameplay itself is very uninspired and quite frankly a little dull.

    The price point ($29.99) on Super Collapse 3 is on par with regular NDS titles, but it feels like you are getting cheated on the feature set.

    Fortunately the sequel is just as good, if not slightly better than, the original game. It finds a home on the Wii and fans of the strategy genre should definitely give a spin to see how Kuju Entertainment developed it.

    Sadly, the Les Paul guitar controller does not work as well as it does on the 360, requiring an external dongle to work. It also does not work with previous Guitar Hero games, so fans of the other entries will have to keep waiting if they want to play them on the PS3.

    Sadly, Neversoft finds themselves unable to find that perfect balance with Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, cutting corners in places that really affect the feel of the game.

    There’s no denying Dementium is a solid first effort for the Renegade Kid development team, and a sequel would certainly be welcome. The visuals are quite good, the sound is immersive, and the gameplay is above average.

    It’s a neat little distraction and cool as a screensaver or distraction for those awkward dinner parties, but when compared to the real thing it’s boring, dull and the limited number of fish available make the cost far outweigh the benefits.

    All of the pieces were there to make a successful and compelling first-person shooter but somewhere along the line it fell apart.

    The audio soars even higher than the graphics.
