    Smooth Moves is everything we hoped it would be and then some – it’s quite simply a must-have for any Wii owner.

    Great visuals, over-the-top enemies and white-knuckle boss battles help overcome Lost Planet's handful of glaring flaws. It's almost as cool as it is cold.

    With a way deeper song list than 'Singstar Rocks' and its authentic content, 'Karaoke Revolution Presents: American Idol' holds up as the ultimate karaoke game for those who are fans of that sort of thing; Paula's deplorable absence notwithstanding.

    The game has some fun moments, but as a longtime 'Trek' fan, this isn't the breathtaking legacy I was hoping for.

    It's not an essential purchase, but certainly one that makes more inventive use of the hardware than some other Wii launch titles.

    If you weren't a fan of the original on the Xbox 360, don't expect this sequel to set your world on fire. But there are enough tweaks and perks to keep car combat fans happy, and it's an overall improvement on the first game.

    It has slick visuals and a more-than-memorable soundtrack. It’s too bad the whole dual-player thing wasn’t played up a bit more but it’s still an enjoyable title that’s worth a buy.

    An expertly crafted game, that’s almost completely at home on the handy Playstation Portable. With the exception of the lack of camera control, Portable Ops does almost everything right in translating the Metal Gear experience to the handheld platform, as well as adding some significant elements from both a gameplay and technical perspective.

    It’s a great demonstration of all the things that can be done with the Wii controller, although it’s still amusing with a conventional PS2 joystick.

    The controls are about as responsive as a corpse in the city morgue and the moody camera handcuffs you at every turn.
    • 63 Metascore

    Thanks to clunky gameplay and having been recently spoilt by unbelievably detailed environments on competing platforms, with more than passable gameplay to boot, Red Steel, despite its novel approaches feels anything but next generation.
    • 95 Metascore
    • 97 Critic Score
    It’s a huge game with an enthralling storyline and a huge mix of different gameplay elements that will keep players from ever being bored.

    Excite Truck is as boisterous and cantankerous as your mother-in-law was when you forgot to call on her birthday. It's engines roar. It's music snarls. There's nothing sedate or stately about it. And, that's why it's simple but thrilling mindless fun.

    While nothing about this is extremely challenging on one of the easier skill levels, trying to beat your high score and making some awesome combos while playing a seasoned human player or computer player on difficult is what will separate the newbies from the true pros.
    • 74 Metascore

    It’s a big improvement over the previous game in the series, the ill-conceived “Super Monkey Ball Adventure,” and it’s another solid showcase for the Wii.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The only real fault with Resistance is that its inspirations are sometimes too obvious. It’s a little too much like Call Of Duty here or Half-Life there, and one of the later tank-driving segments feels like it was lifted straight out of the original Halo.
    • 76 Metascore

    Like "Wii Sports," it is the perfect title to show off the Wii to friends, family and an excellent game to have in your library for those times where you just want to sit back, have a little fun and some laughs.

    At present, this is the closest you will come to knowing what it is like to step inside a WWE ring. Here’s hoping THQ and the WWE will move past their business disagreements and continue producing superb wrestling games.

    With its smaller scope and missions, New York doesn't eclipse 'Ultimate' as the benchmark Spider-Man title for the DS but it does sure as heck give it a run for its money.

    As enjoyable as the game is, as my roommate can attest to, watching someone else play is about as exciting as watching the real thing.

    Even fans of the original game might be a little put off by this rather pointless and soulless sequel. The volleyball is still good, bouncy fun, though.

    Vibrant and charming, Viva Pinata is family friendly fun that engages a child's imagination with its ever evolving gameplay. The more kids play, the more they will be drawn into Viva’s virtual world. Parents be warned though. Keep those ear plugs handy. The migraine-inducing theme song is enough to have you reaching for that bottle of Tequila.

    For such a short game, a Little goes a long way as far as we’re concerned.

    Rarely do games with this much fanfare actually live up to their talked-about potential, but Gears does something that almost none do - it exceeds the hype. It looks almost unbearably gorgeous, it sounds out of this world, it plays as smooth as butter but most of all - it's fun. Pure, unadulterated, blood-spattered fun.

    But it’s also immensely fun and satisfying to blow yourself and numerous other things on the screen up "real good", over and over again. Visually, Every Extend Extra (got to love those Engrish translations) is gorgeous, mesmerizing and quite varied.

    So if you're looking for an all-out melee, then Call of Duty 3 is your game. If you want something that's somewhat stealth mission-based, then you might want to give "SOCOM U.S. Navy SEALs: Combined Assault" a whirl.
    • 82 Metascore

    The visuals and sound design really do drive the package well enough to create what's hopefully as close an experience to the real thing as any of us would like to have.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 67 Critic Score
    What's even more annoying is that like in previous SOCOMs, the characters have a bad habit of getting stuck on the environment.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    Left Behind: Eternal Forces oscillates between the boring and the aggravating and is far from ever being a rapturous experience.

    As one of the few distinct differences from the original, Lumines 2 features full, non-animated music videos as backgrounds on certain levels. The videos are pretty cool on their own, and yet actually add another degree of difficulty by being yet another visual distraction- something that should please veteran players of the first game.
