    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.

    X-Men Origins: Wolverine is the real deal folks. It's a hard-hitting action game and a comic book movie tie-in all wrapped into one package that defies stereotypes.

    If you have any love for the Back to the Future series or simply are looking to digest TellTale's latest click-happy adventure, you really can't go wrong with Episode 1: It's About Time.

    The game didn’t take me the 20 hours the makers claimed it would to complete, but it definitely saw more playtime than many physical releases that cost three times as much and delivered one-third the enjoyment.

    There's a moderately satisfying amount of entertainment to be found in Dead Rising 2: Case West, but the $10 cost seems high for the 2.5 hour play time.

    As I've stated in the past, I love point-and-click adventures, but Broken Sword, with its engagingly deep storyline, gorgeous art, fun writing, entertaining puzzles and terrific vocal cast, just raised the bar to a level that will be incredibly hard to meet for any game.

    While the cute factor is off the charts, Kinectimals never really offers the addicting gameplay and depth of a game like Viva Pinata.

    Saying that, if you've enjoyed the characters in the past, there's more than a good chance you'll like these adventures, especially as they get better as you move along, even if the video presentation doesn't make a similar improvement.

    Despite being a solid fighting game for a portable platform, it's unfortunate to see such a barebones version of Undisputed, in comparison to the console versions.

    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."

    The combat is a blast, the single-player game is faithful to the source material, online matches are appreciated, and the game looks and sounds the part.

    A great story that manages to make old ground seem fresh, coupled with out-of-this world sound design, is sadly attached to a middle-of-the-road, limited third-person gaming experience.

    Offers fast, sleek-looking gameplay, as graphics are impressive in almost all regards.

    Aside from the powerful and dynamic sound mix, everything else about Airborne is thoroughly pedestrian.

    While I enjoyed playing this game, it simply flew by (I completed my first run in just over seven hours,) and the teases of characters who make appearances but aren't playable were disappointing.

    Game crippling glitch aside, “Fright of the Bumblebees” is a strong entry into this new series of four adventures.

    The real disappointment about this version is the lack of different modes and mini-games.
    • 73 Metascore

    As it stands it's a solid, fun game, but it's far from being perfect and there's a lot of missed opportunity here.

    Guitar Hero Smash Hits isn't a bad idea, but the execution is less than perfect, with strange sound mixes and no possible DLC. Given that this is the third of five Guitar Hero products to be released in 2009, making it feel like nothing but a cash grab.

    It's unfortunate that Epic Mickey has such a nasty barrage of poor gameplay design choices as the story is absolutely top notch.

    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.

    It's a very good soccer game, but it could have been a great one with just a little more work on Konami's part.

    The game hasn't changed the formula which is probably a good thing but the length, camera, multiplayer, and HD visuals all lead to disappoint in some degree or another.

    While it’s not a bad game, because it is a solid entry in to the series – there’s nothing left that I feel this series can offer gamers.

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

    Despite the vast variety of gameplay features to explore in Tony Hawk: Proving Ground, I found myself wanting a less skill-specific, more rewarding experience. The controls were too unforgiving and the difficulty was set far too high in many cases.

    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.

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

    NFS Prostreet is a highly polished title, but completely absent of entertainment value.

    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.
