    Puzzle Quest: Galactrix is a lot of fun and it reminds me why I enjoyed the first game as much as I did. The simple puzzle interface combined with the role-playing elements go together like peanut butter and chocolate.

    Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero? is only for Disgaea fans or lovers of hard platforming titles.

    Just save your money and play something that is actually worth your time.

    If you're a fan of the show, then Afro Samurai is definitely a game you should take the time to play. It may lack polish in a few key parts, and it may be shorter than we'd like, but the fact of the matter is that the game is a blast.

    I'm a sucker for a good puzzle, and this game offers up plenty of them, but once you figure them out, there's nothing left.

    This is a highly polished hit that deserves to be checked out.

    In the end, Ubisoft have pieced together an engrossing, intricately designed fantasy experience with Prince of Persia, one with a smooth and decadent sensibility that reflects on both its visual sumptuousness and meticulous framework.

    I'm the last person to disparage point and click games, but the pace of this game and the breadth of its challenges do not add up to a fun time for someone who cut their teeth on games like Maniac Mansion.

    If you're a Naruto fan then Broken Bond should definitely be on your play list.

    Throw in some iffy control elements, a lack of in-depth online play and real players, and game-play modes that lack variety, and this game fails to excite. And now, with a cheaper downloadable version available that should satisfy fans of the big-name teams who make the Big Dance each year, this game's value is a bit lower yet.

    Shaun White Snowboarding simply feels like an unfinished and unbalanced game.
    • 78 Metascore

    If you want to really get into a snowboarding game, actually standing on a board is probably the best choice, and the integration with the Balance Board raises Shaun White Snowboarding: Road Trip above the pack in that respect, but it's in no way gimmicky, as it can be just as enjoyable with your Wii-mote, thanks to a very intuitive control system.

    Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World is a worth-while role-playing effort for the Wii. It's a true successor to the original title for the GameCube with a continuing story and improved gameplay elements.

    If you're a Call of Duty fan and were grimacing about Treyarch being involved with this installment, don't fret. World at War is a fantastic game from start to finish and the multiplayer is every bit as fun and addicting as Modern Warfare's.

    With the right controls, this could have been a fun, if repetitive brawler, but with the so-so controls that are in place, it became just a repetitive brawler that might be entertaining for younger players, but it probably won't hold their attention.

    If you're looking for an RTS that is cut from a slightly different cloth then EndWar is definitely the way to go.

    Considering there are so many Naruto games on the market, it really says something that Storm actually stands out.

    It's a dreary, repetitive affair that never makes you feel excited to be in the shoes of James Bond.

    Though there's not much more to this release than the 25 classics and nine previously-available XBLA games, and the presentation isn't nearly as clean as it could be (likely because of technical requirements for the online play) there's a lot of fun to be had with these games, and with the XBLA games running five bucks a pop, this collection is a genuine bargain (if you like the XBLA games, that is.)

    Guitar Hero used to be a pitch perfect game. Neversoft has not been able to replicate the level of critical success as Harmonix has, however, and World Tour is another disappointment.

    From start to finish Fable 2 is a great game that stands out as one of the better role-playing experiences on the current consoles.

    The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon is a decent platforming title for the PS3, but it's definitely not the cream of the crop.

    Thought it may be a sequel in title only, Far Cry 2 is a fantastic shooter worthy of finding a home in any FPS fan's library.

    The PS3 finally has a solid RPG and despite the fact that it is one that has been ported over from the 360 it's worth checking out.

    If you're looking for a good street racing title, then this is definitely one to consider. It's not perfect, but there are enough positives to put it neck and neck with some of its competition.

    Fans of the series will no doubt feel right at home in this iteration and continue to support the franchise. Those new to the Midnight Club line or those looking for a new racing game to pick up will still get a great deal out of this game.

    Midnight Club: Los Angeles Remixed is a worthy addition to the series even though it has a few stumbles here and there.
