    A fine place to start for younger gamers. In that respect, the puzzles, side quests and overall presentation are just about right.

    It's a decent action fighter, but definitely repetitive and has little to increase its short life span. The button-masher crowd should have a good time, but we don't think the heroes in a half-shell deserve too much pizza money out of this one.

    Severely limp-wristed, Bloody Roar 4 gets smacked senseless by its immediate peers. It's a crying shame, as fans of the product line might even take offense. Little care or concern was invested in the game, and it shows.

    A trip down memory lane for anyone pining for the original, but without strategic and gameplay enhancements, it's just a poor game by 2003 standards.

    It's just one extended chair wrecking, box-shoving session. And that's a house of pain, to be sure.

    Why not make a game starring Sonic and only Sonic, where he's running around on his own two legs, without any weapons besides his own body, in an action/platformer? Crazy? Yes, but it just might work.

    There's a fine strategy game under here somewhere, but the clumsy interface and staid presentation mean few people will have the patience to find it.

    The game fails on the fact that it's faaar too simple.

    It's another throwaway shooter with bad AI, forgettable single player levels, and glib unremarkable multiplayer options. Here lies Rainbow Six. Rest in peace, while we go reinstall "Raven Shield."

    What's disappointing is that Lord of the Rings is not really that great at getting you into the action.

    If you're a Larry fan from way back, Magna Cum Laude takes the series into a pleasing new direction. But it needs a greater variety of challenges to be more appealing.

    Where NBA Live offends most is sadly in its gameplay. A reviewer could literally fill an entire page of notes with criticisms of this nature.

    Ignoring the lackluster controls and bad animation, there's a decent action/adventure experience in Headhunter: Redemption, with a lengthy quest punctuated with plenty of gunplay and occasionally interesting puzzles.

    A hard game to recommend, but just as hard to universally bash.

    Masterfully simple, overwhelmingly addictive.

    They've apparently tried to recapture the magic of "StarCraft," but in this case the spell has fizzled.

    Not to say it's a bad game, but each of the elements - RTS and Action/RPG - are only shadows of the best of breed in their genre.

    The storyline features such ridiculous contrivances as diving to find the ingredients to make aspirin for someone's grandmother, who has back pain. Ugh.

    It's solid-looking, but terribly tedious and irritatingly hard at points. In co-op, it's better, but it's a still a long way from being good.

    Not a particularly stellar experience.

    You'll run into bugs and questionable design decisions that make it feel rushed, and the gameplay elements themselves are nothing you haven't seen before. It's better looking than you would expect, however, which is probably enough to please movie fans.

    Only the Sabotage online mode, where teams attempt to interrogate rivals for parts of a six-number code, stands out as unique. One mode won't win the war, much less our gaming money for the month.

    It's a by-the-numbers zombie romp that fails to improve on its less than illustrious predecessor, "The Devil Inside"...disappointing.

    Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash is a reasonably solid game of arcade tennis that’s accessible for newbies, yet challenging enough to give more experienced players something to chew on. But despite the glitzy visuals, it’s a predictable serve that lands well inside the line, rather than a decisive, smashing ace. Tennis fans — and Matthew Perry — deserve a little more.

    It has too many defects and omissions.

    The latest release in this hopelessly unrealistic arcade series that just fell yet another notch on the realism scale.

    The hyper-aggressive cops, touchy crashes, and thick traffic all work against the player. They don't heighten the rush. These elements just stop the game dead and make it a chore.

    Mindlessly amusing at first, Fistful of Boomstick is ultimately a fistful of monotony and derivative gameplay, saved from gaming's abyss by the humor and life injected from its infamous lead character.

    After the bloodcurdlingly imaginative Resident Evil 4, this add-on to Outbreak barely qualifies as a legitimate expansion of the story's classic mode of play. We screamed for voice chat and better AI after the initial release, but those cries have gone unheard.

    Despite the lure of naked chicks, at its heart it's a fairly innocuous, and rather derivative "The Sims" knock-off.
