    The Wii doesn’t have many competitive multiplayer titles, but it now has one of the best in "Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars."

    Excellent gameplay, challenge and visuals. Voice work and story are the only low marks.

    If a player can look past the occasionally spotty visuals, the unusually long load times, and a complicated narrative, they can find an excellent RPG experience for the Wii.

    Overall this is a very enjoyable game. It is fun on its own as an arachnid and arthropod themed adventure game but is boosted with an extra story featuring recognizable and excellent voice acting.

    Hating football and playing football games isn’t the best thing to do. After being forced to play this genre of games for ten years, FIFA 09 All-Play is easily the best sports game I’ve ever played. With a strong single player mode for serious gamers and a light-hearted and purely fun multiplayer casual side, it makes it an all rounder and a great game to play.

    Overall, Wildlife Vet is a well designed game. The game-play is short and easy to complete, but is entertaining enough to keep players occupied and wanting to play on. In addition, the graphics and background music are both quite impressive and very well done. The controls are easy to use and are pick-up-and-go. All in all, because of the unfortunately short game-play, Petz Rescue: Wildlife Vet gets a 9 out of 10.

    I know that it is almost certain that all the Zelda fans are going to buy all the titles related to the saga. I just ask you not to make the mistake of seeing "Spirit Tracks" as just an extra portable title. "Link’s Awakening" is enough proof that these versions are worthy enough and have distinguished the series since the beginning.

    The story is phenomenal, the music is some of the best, and it leaves Phoenix Wright and friends off on a spectacular note.

    Mad World is bloody, vulgar, and a ridiculous amount of fun.

    Mega Man 9 sets out to be a better game than Mega Man 2 but for all of the same reasons why that game is respected: it succeeds, and it proves that gameplay is king while also artfully taking us back to an era where this was much more evident than it is today.

    Klonoa is not only a great game remade, it's a great deal.

    Rage of the Gladiator is challenging in a good way with 21 fights to get through.

    There’s only so much that a developer can do with Tetris before they expand into a different genre or create something that doesn’t even feel like the original game, which is why it’s so impressive what Hudson has done with this title.

    Boom Blox Bash Party tops the original in every way.

    Its unique if sometimes Japanese-infused presentation sports a snappy visual design and an excellent musical score, but the real hook is the superb puzzle design.

    Veterans, this game is everything you could hope for an more. While Battle was a bust, what is still tried and true to the series is still amazing.

    "Big Bang Mini" really came out of nowhere and totally surprised me. What appears to be a innovative take on the vertical shooter genre then explodes into a content-rich title that is constantly changing and expanding.

    Konami has done Wii owners a big favor with this "ReBirth" line of games, with its "Castlevania" title being the best of them all. As long as you don't mind the more straightforward progression and the absence of RPG elements, this is a highly recommended Wiiware download.

    That being said, if you are a fan of the series you will definitely enjoy this game. This was the most fun I have had with a DS game in quite some time.

    Dementium is definitely easy to interact with, and it flows quite nicely.

    "Excite Bike: World Rally" has great controls and is a successful upgrade to the original version. The graphics are crisp, the new controls option is easy to pick up, and it offers unlockable content and the track editor to keep players coming back.

    Long time fans will enjoy it, but the causal gamer won’t have much of a reason to rush out and buy this as it’s just a continuation of 9.

    Although dungeon crawlers can be irksome, the save function is a saving grace with Orcs & Elves as it makes playing the game much more fun.

    Overall Mario and Sonic at the Winter Olympic Games is vastly better than it’s predecessor. Sega listened to the feedback provided last time and made this mini-game collection much more interesting and easy to use. Unfortunately there is no online play, which even Mario Karts Wii and Animal Crossing Let’s Go to the City manage to achieve.

    Dragon Quest IV is a classic RPG in every sense of the word, from its charming medieval atmosphere to its plucky cast of characters. Behind the cheerful exterior lies a tough and challenging game that requires lots of patience and time. The game will easily give the player their money's worth, and is a great starting point in the franchise that will have you waiting in anticipation for the next game.

    Under the Knife 2 is a triumphant return for the Trauma Center franchise to the handheld that made it famous in the first place. While it’s a bit too familiar for its own good, and a bunch of features from the previous games are missing, the excellent game design, larger campaign and significantly improved story make this a great title. Atlus is officially 4-for-4 with this unique series.

    What Bully doesn't do perfectly it makes up for by doing so much all at once and connecting it all cohesively into an entertaining world that rewards players for almost everything they decide to take the time to do.

    Opoona is one of those once-a-generation type games -- for many hardcore RPG fans this will be a bit of a letdown, but for others it could easily be heightened to the level of the Mother series if another game does come out.

    While still a solid game that gets its point across, it could stand to use a few more brain-training exercises or other play modes. What we get is perfectly satisfactory and will either make or break you in terms of whether or not you’re a total nincompoop or some sort of genius.

    This is hands down the best party experience on any home console, one that you will want to pick up as soon as you get a chance.
