    Overall, "Sega Rally Revo" does offer the cool addition of GeoDeformation and moderately enjoyable multiplayer options. However, the game suffers from dismaying AI (which takes away from the fun of the single player), little depth and what I consider to be overly floaty control.

    The 200 or so levels will eat up a solid chunk of your gaming time and is very addictive to the casual gamer.

    Tomb Raider: Anniversary is a nice throwback, but doesn’t offer much innovation to adventure gamers in this generation of consoles.

    In an industry that pumps out tons of zombie games each year, there's nothing incredibly distinctive about Dead Nation.

    You are looking at about 3 to 4 hours of playtime with this add-on pack, not terribly overpriced for 560 marketplace points ($7). The main draw is obviously the expanded storyline, ideal for Fable III junkies that want to stay engrossed in the narrative.

    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.

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

    It's easily one of the more polished poker games that I've played on any platform, but there's plenty of free poker games on the PC that can offer the same thrill.

    But if you want to play with your children, and they have a few friends whose parents were willing to buy them some additional figurines, then you might be able to get some decent fun out of it. For everyone else, though, Skylanders is a pass.

    ITSP is undoubtedly a work of art, even if you only based that evaluation on its unique and beautiful visuals. But the rest of the package more than carries its own weight, especially the design and variation amongst the bad guys and some of the level design.

    This really just boils down to if you enjoy RTS games and the methodical level of pacing that comes with the genre. This is the first RTS game on a console that I have been able to tolerate.

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

    While the stylish production value of the title is utterly fantastic, I can’t recommend a $20 game with an obnoxiously easy difficulty level that lasts about 4 to 5 hours.

    Tales From Space: About a Blob is a very unique and charming game that provides a nice change of pace.

    It is a very standard RPG and gets repetitive with a generic combat system. The dungeons are similar from dungeon to dungeon. There are no puzzles or complex tasks required.

    As expected, the virtual playground that is the Sims doesn't convert very well into the console world. Even with the added gameplay components like Karma, the experience is very much like Sims 3-lite compared to the larger world in Sims 3 for the PC.

    Toy Story 3 is clearly targeted at a much younger demographic of players than the vast majority of Xbox 360 releases, but there's plenty of entertainment value for young adults that grew up on the Toy Story movies.

    Section 8: Prejudice is a must-own XBLA title.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    If you enjoyed Sam and Max’s first XBLA outing, this release is a no-brainer.

    It's a visceral racing title that takes the genre back to its roots but it in no way pushes the envelope.

    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.

    If you're one of last year's players who has come this far and what you've read hasn't swayed you, stick with last year's edition. It's not obsolete; the decks are different enough that you'll still have fun playing them. If you are intrigued, I say drop the $10 and get going.

    For $10, “Magic the Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers” is a lot of bang for the buck.

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

    Kung Fu Panda isn't a title designed for adults, but rather the young fans of the movie.

    If you have points to spare, or don't mind plunking down some cold cash to obtain a few, you cannot go wrong with this fun title.
