    Overall Magna Carta 2 isn’t a horrible game, but it’s not one that really makes you stand up and cheer either.

    As the second true title to promote healthy activity and get people off the couch and moving, Outdoor Challenge does have a good array of games to get people up and moving. Sadly, the motivation may dwindle after a period of play.

    This pick-up-and-play title offers up more than enough challenge to keep you busy but enough charm and enjoyment to keep trying when hitting a brick wall. Though there's a high level of frustration in places, as levels take on the ridiculous difficulty of bullethell shmups, with practice and patience, you can master the swarm and have fun doing it.

    Akimi Village is a very basic game that will only appeal to a certain type of gamer. One who is willing to invest a decent amount of time into restoring the vitality of a world, through repetitive actions. Due to this and its aforementioned issues, it's hard to recommend to anyone other than the hardcore life simulator fans.

    Enemy Territory: Quake Wars is overpriced considering the lackluster single player and dated design.

    The game is a no-brainer in terms of entertainment value for the whole family and it's definitely a title to pick up if you're looking for some relaxed game time with the kids (or parents).

    Even at $10, the game feels overpriced for the amount of content that comes with the title. Adding in the fact that it's somewhat difficult to play with the controller, the visuals are uninspiring and the community is pretty much absent and we have a FPS that's never going to flourish.

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

    I would recommend renting Major League Baseball 2K11 if you have an Xbox 360 to get a feel for the game and see how much you are willing to put up with. If you have a PS3, you obviously need to buy MLB 11: The Show instead of this game.

    The game is simply a blast to play and it’s one of those games where you can drop hours into and not even realize it.

    1942: First Strike is highly entertaining… while it lasts.

    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.

    I can certainly applaud The Undergarden's developers for trying something different, but the concept here is not nearly strong enough to support the bland and pedestrian gameplay. Even casual games still demand a level of interest from the player, and The Undergarden doesn't have it.

    Lost in Shadow is unfortunately true to its name. The player will feel lost in a sea of mediocre gameplay that doesn't have a foreseeable end in sight.

    All in all, they have created an amazingly large, expansive driving game that's truly a joy to get lost within, but doesn't perform well enough to keep you within that illusion.

    Of EA Sports Active 2, Your Shape: Fitness Evolved and The Biggest Loser Ultimate Workout, the latter has the absolute best use of motion tracking during the actual exercises as well as the motivation to keep you going.

    I can't recommend the Xbox 360 version of EA Sports Active 2 to anyone. You are much better going with Your Shape: Fitness Evolved for a fitness game or even Dance Central to shake your booty's calories away if you pick up a Kinect this holiday season.

    Clearly, the game is designed for younger players in mind (although that seems somewhat at odds with the older crowds that Rango is attracting in the theaters). The game is just a scant five hours long and the lack of extra gameplay modes drags the game's replay value down considerably.

    Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs is a straight-forward children’s release that doesn’t push the envelope in any way.

    And in the End... Most older players won't get an extended life out of We Ski, as the game play can get a bit repetitive, and starts out very easy, though for families looking to play together, it's worth every penny.

    If you played Lost Planet for the 360 then there frankly isn't any reason to spend time with the PlayStation 3 version. The original release stands out as the better version.

    I applaud the developers for taking the series in a different route and creating a full-fledged adventure here.

    Two Worlds II suffers from a handful of the same problems as the original, but the improved graphics engine and deeper gameplay are positive steps forward for the series.

    With such little development time between titles, it should be no surprise that there's not much difference between We Ski and We Ski & Snowboard, but that doesn't stop it from being a disappointment, since Shaun White Snowboarding raised the bar since that first release.

    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.

    This is about as good as it gets for a game that can be purchased on the cheap.

    Though it's quite unique and does a good job of mixing different genres together into one game, Slam Bolt Scrappers is a ho-hum experience.

    If they can add some content and challenge and work a bit on the controls, there’s a definite place for a playground game in the marketplace. It does relate to the younger set and can encourage family play.

    You are looking at about 14 to 16 hours of gameplay for Kingdom Hearts Re: coded, but slogging through the entire story really lacks any substantial payoff.

    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.
