    Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is a great Star Wars action game, with an interesting story and a lot of potential for fun, so long as as you can look past some moderately annoying issues.

    Fans of the original Rock Band will probably find Rock Band 2 worth it both for the large new tracklist and the numerous engine improvements, while newcomers to the series will enjoy one of the most polished music game experiences to date.

    Despite some control issues, Lock's Quest may just be the sleeper hit of the year. Definitely worth checking out if you own a DS.

    Castle Crashers is a great XBLA title that nobody should miss out on.

    Helix has the potential to be a better title in future incarnations, but for now you’ll just have to enjoy the music and dance to the beat of your own drummer. Get it for the music!

    While it's hard to justify spending 60 dollars on a yearly series, Madden NFL 09 offers up just enough tweaks to make it worth consideration.

    Braid is one of the best, if not the best, games I have ever played.

    The new game modes and offline multiplayer are sweet enough additions that it makes Geometry Wars once again like candy – addicting and highly salivating for those who want non-stop action.

    While it isn't the best fighter to come out in 2008, it does a lot of things well enough to keep fans happy and intrigue new-comers.

    Try the Mario baseball game for cute, or a more realistic MLB title for robust realism.

    So here we have a sixteen game collection for thirty bucks, that won’t take up a lot of space on your Wii, packs in some good games, and whose only problems are various other locations to play these games and a bit of hoop jumping for some of them.

    If you have some Olympic fever left over and don’t feel like shelling out for a certain Olympic game featuring two very popular gaming mascots, then New International Track and Field may be worth diving into.

    The definitive version of FFIV….but just barely. Beautiful and containing a hardcore challenge, but other than the cosmetic changes there’s not much new here. If you’ve never played Final Fantasy IV before, now is the time.

    Great for friends looking for a fun co-op distraction, but the repetitious play and unsatisfying solo play make it mostly undesireable for the rest.

    Definitely created for players who've never played the series before, Civilization Revolution is a great entry title for console gamers.

    Chocobo's Dungeon takes a strict gameplay structure, bends it for the sake of accessibility and then builds something new on it to enhance it further without entirely breaking the game.

    The game by itself is average at best.

    Very solid and well put together, though an odd choice for a handheld. Recommended for big GH fans and casual gamers.

    Fall of X.A.N.A. has a lot of problems that only fans of the series will be able to overcome.

    Paying 800 points for this game nets you a pretty dry experience.

    A enjoyable experience all around; while perfect for 'retro' gamers, it packs enough style to reel in newcomers as well.

    A decent casual title, as long as you don't go expecting another Tetris DS. Ideal for puzzle fans.

    That about does it for Metal Gear Solid 4, it's an amazing achievement for the teams that worked on it and more than lives up to being a next-generation video game.

    Don King Presents Prizefighter is a competent boxing game that is fun to play and which offers an entertaining career mode. That's all it is, however, and isn't really going to blow anyone away.

    If you’re looking for a good DBZ fighter, go to your nearest bargain bin and pick up Budokai 3. If you’re looking for the ultimate Dragonball Z simulation game, go pick up Budokai Tenkaichi 3. Both games are cheaper and provide better gaming experiences than Burst Limit.

    For $10, you get a great presentation, packing plenty of action, three difficulties, scoreboards, and online play.
