    The game is not very difficult, and as soon as players grasp the standard controls they should have no problem progressing through the game. Lost in Blue 3 does not deviate much from experience of the first two games. The game still provides a relatively fun experience, but nothing we haven’t seen before.

    LOL
    Bakushow is really as good as the people that it’s played with; fortunately, I played it with some great people. It feels a little incomplete in places, however, and there’s a lot of room for change if a second is to come out. The lack of colours and a keyboard is criminal, but the game is great fun overall as long as being spoon-fed isn’t something you enjoy.

    Soul Bubbles is unique puzzle title in the same vein as Katamari Damacy and Loco Roco. As with those titles, Soul Bubbles is meant to be played in short bursts rather then long stretches as the gameplay gets tiresome after playing to long. If you enjoyed navigating through Loco Roco, or guiding mario through bubbles in Super Mario Galaxy then this is a puzzle game right up your alley.

    You should be able to run at your own discretion. THQ should do a better job of advertising which match types are console exclusive so as to not mislead their customers.

    Overall, the Iron Man title on the Wii lacked the spark that the film had; however, it’s a huge step up from last year's A2M film franchise adaptation, known as The Golden Compass. That said, if players are looking for a film to game adaptation that actually reflects the film, they should look elsewhere.

    Mushroom Men: Rise of the Fungi is a decent platformer that tries a little to hard to put as many features as possible into the game and ends up over complicating itself. A few odd design and control choices hamper the moody and unique atmosphere and pales in comparison to its console counterpart.

    The lack of online multiplayer really brings the score down for Pirates: Duels on the High Sea. With the repetitive gameplay in the singleplayer mode, an online multiplayer mode would really have made Pirates much more fun.

    Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution is an adequate fighter that is serviceable overall to its fans, but for everything it tries to do to create an enjoyable fighting experience, it stumbles in the execution or the presentation.

    The Sims 2: Apartment Pets is fairly engaging for a few hours, but unfortunately it becomes stale very quickly as the Sim character itself requires far too little attention. A great concept, but owing to the awkward controls and the lack of care needed for the Sim, there’s just too much monotony.

    Need For Speed Undercover on the DS is a fairly basic affair. It plays well, has no real technical flaws worth mentioning and has a sturdy base to it. It is graphically sound but dull and repetitive. Overall, it is very basic and does not provide any real thrills. For an exciting and in-depth game, look elsewhere.

    101 in 1 Explosive MegaMix is generally a good game but its inconsistency, along with the sore spot that the minigames are all locked from the get go, make it hard to truly recommend.

    While its gameplay is rough around the edges and at times bland, it's adequate for mindlessly smashing thugs to get to the brilliant writing on display.

    Fans of the original wanting to know where Travis has been will want to pick this up, while people new to the Suda 51 universe would be best at a rental.

    If the game was going to be this short, then it should have been made a tad bit more difficult to balance out the lack of content.

    "Scribblenauts" is not a terrible game. It brings something new to the DS and is really fun at first. But as you progress you’ll be wishing more and more that you could simply control the hero with the D-pad and that those damn kids would stop singing "get the beat" or whatever it is they are saying.

    While the difficulty does come close to being cheap at times, it’s not to the point of making you want to stop playing the game forever. If you have an extra five bucks to burn, give it a shot.

    For better or worse, you may want to try the game out because it has its enjoyable moments. Just be warned that kart racers already on the market like Mario Kart Wii are far superior.

    This game is fun for those that want to relive the feeling of walking into an arcade in the 80’s or 90’s. Unfortunately the number of bad games outweighs the good.

    If your a fan of Fatal Frame and Japanese Horror in general, you will probably like Calling. It succeeds in being scary without the shock and gore factor, but don't expect stellar gameplay.

    Deca Sports DS doesn't do enough to set itself apart, and the quality of the individual games is uneven at best. In the end your getting a really mixed bag with some good multiplayer and customization options.

    A slopped together and stripped down fest of mediocre minigames.

    There are plenty of great ideas to be found, though not a whole lot of polish or execution.

    Interesting motion controls can not save this action title from its poor graphics and presentation to its even worse gameplay. A total disappointment from a development team that is capable of so much more.

    Massive levels, decent fighting mechanics and challenging boss battles can't make up for lackluster gameplay, poor visuals and a rather bland story.

    After a mere couple of hours, players will feel as if they're beating a dead horse rather than a pair of bongos -- which isn't even an option in the first place despite the clear theme of drums and the obvious Gamecube controller ports.

    Sadly, the game only has five short “chapters”, making it easily play-able in less then an afternoon sitting. The only replay value is in trying to master each case on hard mode. So unless you’re planning on becoming a vet, or you want an interactive book to teach you more about animal medicine, I’d steer clear of this one.

    Mario Super Sluggers attempts to bring the over-the-top fun of Mario Kart to the game of baseball, but instead brings chaos and confusion. The control schemes are broken and the roster is mostly lame. In the end, Mario Super Sluggers does more to damage the reputation of the Wii Remote then promote its functionality.

    With a tired and clichéd premise, Dinosaur King makes a good use of what could be done. Lots of DS features are used, and the graphics are strong, but it’s just too similar to Pokémon but with too few of the features to capture older gamers attention. Younger gamers will enjoy this title a lot, especially those who follow the series.

    Bad graphics and the odd bug are acceptable on a game of substance. However, NBA Live 09: All-Play lacks a career mode, and is only as good as the person online that can be played against. Unfortunately, AI is so odd that it makes multiplayer somewhat futile after long periods of time.
