    The extensive single player career mode will have you playing for weeks on end. Unfortunately, the multiplayer design flaws hurts the replay value after the single player is completed.

    Goldeneye's reputation was built on its stellar split-screen multiplayer, and Activision was smart enough to bring it back for this go around. As before, getting together a group of friends for a night of gunslinging is ridiculously fun, and the PS3 version even includes Hugo Drax with a Moonraker laser pistol as DLC (for those who purchase the game new) for some vintage Bond action.

    Unfortunately, this is the worst performing version of Plants vs. Zombies and oddly the most expensive.

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

    Overall, Catherine is a strange beauty of a game that deserves to be given a spin in your console.

    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.

    If you loved all the other Halo games, there's little I can say to dissuade you from purchasing Bungie's last creation in the Halo series.

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

    In any case, You Don't Know Jack is an excellent choice for parties or simply those looking for a great trivia challenge with a liberal dose of silly humor.

    Assuming the crashing issues that I observed on my system were isolated (I didn’t hear many reports of this happening to others) then Saints Row 2 gets a highly recommended grade from this reviewer.

    It's hard to improve upon a solid game when making the sequel, but Rare has done that and more with Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise.

    If you're looking for a good golf game for the Wii, then Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 All Play is the one to get.

    Though Red Faction: Armageddon isn't the most creative game on the market, it's one of the most entertaining action games to hit the market in a while. Fans of previous virtual mining expeditions (scratch that; uprisings) on the red planet will feel at home with the game's easy to grasp control scheme and incredibly exciting mechanics.

    Overall, "FIFA 09" only appears to have minor adjustments to the game play, but they provide more responsive controls.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The game excels at involving the player in the unsettling narrative and remaining unrelenting at making you fearful of every single step taken throughout the decrepit castle.
    • 53 Metascore

    It's not innovative or surprising in any way, but the graphics and gameplay are enjoyable and the multiplayer is a fun option.

    Soul Calibur IV brings the supremely balanced fantasy fighting to the next gen systems, with great success. There are a few drawbacks, such as the spotty online and the woefully inadequate storylines, but the pros far outweigh the cons.

    DJ Hero is the ace up Activision's sleeve, simultaneously reinvigorating their music game slate while opening up a whole new genre to the mix (pardon the pun). And unlike the assembly line feeling of the Guitar Hero sequels, DJ Hero really does give a fresh spin (I can't help it with the puns!) on the music game world.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The game features a ton of solid gameplay with enough improvements over the original to take note of.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    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.

    The bottom line is that like the world of "L.A. Noire" itself, the game is neither black nor white; it has its grey areas and it's up to the gamer him or herself to determine how those grey areas affect their playing experience.

    If you're looking for a new Naruto game to sharpen your kunai on then Ultimate Ninja 3 is definitely worth a spin. The gameplay may be the same as ever but slight improvements in just about every department help flesh out the experience.

    Okamiden never feels like a giant leap forward, but it was never intended as such. Instead, it shows that the world of Okami is ripe for further adventures, and that they can appear in new and exciting forms.

    For anyone that's played the previous LEGO Star Wars titles or for those that love the animated television series on the Cartoon Network, Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars is a fantastic purchase that can be enjoyed by fans of all ages.

    Taken by itself Disgaea 3 has a lot to offer with some fantastic gameplay, fun mechanics, open-ended customization, and plenty of opportunities to grind for levels.

    To conclude, Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars is a huge diversion from the norm, but it's also quite a good game. In fact, it's one of the best launch titles for the Nintendo 3DS.
    • 82 Metascore

    As a standalone game this is easily a recommended title if you enjoy the sport in any fashion, it’s true to the sport and plays, looks and sounds great and there’s a large pool of players around the world to play online.
    • 43 Metascore

    The game is fun, it looks great, and given the relatively sparse offerings for 3DS launch titles, this one is easy to recommend.
    • 76 Metascore

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

    It's far more effective as a fun aerobic workout or a way to get your groove on if you wouldn't step foot "in da club."
