    There's a brilliant simplicity wrapped around the addictive gameplay that makes Zooo a great puzzle game in most respects.

    Except for a few subtle-but-effective additions, Ace Combat Zero doesn’t do much else but marginally evolve the series from its last effort, and in the end that leads to a familiar feeling of “been there, done that” more often than not.

    A louder, meaner, faster futuristic version of "Gauntlet."

    Xpand Rally shows off a love for the sport that borders on obsessive, yet the game is truly accessible to any motor sports fan.

    The game could have used a few more track locations, options and gameplay modes, but for twenty bucks (or less with a trade-in), it's not a bad deal no matter how you look at it.

    The game is consistently funny throughout, easy to play and will absolutely make you a Bone fan before you’re done with it.

    The three wildly different takes on the main story should take around 15 or so hours to complete (including the cut scenes) and the ton of music tracks, weapons and items make for quite a bit of collecting.

    An absolute must-have for any Silent Hill fan. Even though I would’ve loved to have seen more movie features, the digital comics, compilation soundtrack, movie trailer, video interviews and game trailers (yes, the trailers for each game in the series have been included as well) are totally worth throwing down 20 bucks for, no questions asked.

    Although nothing about Keepsake sparks the furnace of mind-blowing innovation, it is still a well designed and thoroughly compelling game that traditional adventure game enthusiasts of any skill level can dive into and love every second of.

    It certainly kept me entertained more than most of today’s over-hyped, higher profile FPSs.

    It’s great to see a horror-themed game that goes more for the cerebral end of the spectrum rather than straight the jugular, but there are a few moments where you might not want to step into a darkened area or find out what’s happened to a character you’ve befriended.

    Beatmania had the makings for a solid rhythm game with its sweet turntable peripheral, accessible-yet-challenging gameplay and plethora of game modes and options, however when the most important element to this type of game -- the music -- is so forgettable the entire gameplay experience is essentially ruined.

    There are a couple of flaws to point out and the game doesn’t take any groundbreaking strides forward, but in remaining true to the addictive simplicity of the genre and providing just enough new tweaks and additions to the time-tested formula The Warrior’s Code finds itself a lofty spot in our diehard hack-n-slash hearts, and I guarantee it will do the same for any action-RPG fan.

    Where Game Tycoon falters is in its lack of depth and variety. Although the concept and myriad of options I described in the paragraph above are intriguing, there isn’t a whole lot to it beyond clicking check boxes on the screen and managing company economics.

    Yes, the game’s main collection of 20-plus story missions last roughly 10 hours, but after that you’ll be spending at least two or three times as many hours striving for 100% game completion and the ultimate ascension to Don of NYC.

    Me and My Katamari disappointed me just a wee little bit with it’s limited level variety and frequent mid-level load times, and because of these faults the game isn’t as great as it could’ve and should’ve been.

    Whereas Metal Gear Acid faltered slightly in its attempt to branch the MGS franchise out into a bold new direction, Acid 2 absolutely nails the concept with engaging turn-based strategy gameplay, a refined interface, quicker pacing, stylized graphics and an abundance of replay value, among other noteworthy attributes.

    The scale, beauty and immersion of the game’s open-ended world is unprecedented, the character creation and progression systems are deep and involving and the gameplay that backs it all up is solid and insatiably addictive.

    Not only does the DS again innovate the industry by allowing players to utilize the touchscreen as a pseudo mouse look, but the inclusion of online multiplayer extends this game well past the single player mode.

    For this only being a booster pack and not a full expansion set like Special Forces, what EA and DICE have on display here is a massive upgrade for Battlefield 2. I can see all the 24/7 Great Wall servers popping up already.

    Sony has a great potential franchise here if they continue to polish and refine the gameplay and visuals with each installment, and I’d recommend they take this style of top-down action to the home consoles as well, adding even more features.

    From the gorgeous graphics, solid control scheme to the writing and sound production, this one has "BUY ME" stamped all over it in big gold letters.

    You absolutely, positively must buy this game if you own a PS2 – it’s that simple.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    The game looks fantastic, controls like a dream and is brilliantly paced, elements that add up to a "must buy" in my book.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    The franchise’s grandest adventure yet, hands down. A few minor quibbles are the only flaws in what is an absolutely masterful action-RPG/adventure epic.
    • 89 Metascore

    An outstanding next-gen racer and one of the best games for the 360 to date.
