    Resident Evil is a rare commodity in several ways. First, it is one of the few titles that can jump from a console to the PC and back with no loss of quality or experience. Second, it a game that can be picked up three years after its release and still have the same impact it did on day one. Finally, very few games can claim to have spawned a genre. Resident Evil can make this claim, as well as the unique claim of near perfection on the first try.

    Almost everything in Black Mirror II deserves an A. The graphics, the music, the acting, the plot, the script, the interface. Even many of the puzzles are well thought out. If only the game had let me solve them. Without something to challenge the mind, however, it's all just cable TV. Which is why, despite its many sterling qualities, I'm giving Black Mirror II an overall B.

    Yes, it is a quality game with high-end graphics and superb voice-acting, but it also seems to be pretty much 'by-the-numbers' let's get this finished and hope we get better distribution and make more money than we did with Dreamcatcher so we can move on to our next project type of game.

    The City That Dares Not Sleep is certainly the second best entry in Season 3 (The Tomb of Sammun-Mak remains the clear standout).

    For those who've been living on the former planet Pluto and just got back, I will inform you that Beyond the Alley of the Dolls is pretty much a standard third-person (or persons) 3D adventure, albeit adapted for consoles, takes five or so hours to complete and has all-around stellar production values - music, graphics, interface, you name it.

    Unfortunately, the first chapter is more exposition than game.

    Everything in the game is top-notch, except, of course, for the puzzles.

    But, as usual, it's all expertly crafted and written and still highly amusing.

    About the only thing I'd knock crackers off Jolly's overall score for is its not quite top-drawer cartoon style.

    I am still ticked off at Telltale for deviously dumbing down the puzzles in all their games, but the quality, inventiveness and cleverness on display in this episode are undeniable

    The Whispered World is about half a terrific game and half a mess. But since the most important parts, the puzzling, graphics and exploring, are all well done I'm going to ignore the stuff I cared less for and award the game an overall grade of A minus.

    After playing so many mediocre games from the big publishers, DF3 was a welcome treat. If you like adventure games, you must get this one.

    The 3D graphics are still cartoonily swell, if still a bit on the overly pastelish, blocky side. The duo's sarcastic dialog is as caustic and hilarious as ever. The villains and other NPCs are still deliciously loony. The one headline new wrinkle is that this season Max has been granted "Psi" powers. Of course, you have to trundle around "earning" them via gameplay, but they should add a welcome new dimension to the episodes.

    For all its faults, Again is an innovative adventure game worth playing and a sequel – which is hinted at – would be more than welcome.

    Cards of Destiny, if you can ignore what the characters are yammering on about, provides a decent ten to fifteen hours of adventuring, and the usual dosage of nice eye candy, but it's a step backwards from City's last AG effort, Tree of Life.

    While Nancy Drew: The Model Mysteries might be fine for younger gamers, it is a shame more effort wasn’t made to engage the player’s intellect instead of dumping yet another generic and charmless casual game onto the shelves and at that, one that must leave those unfamiliar with Nancy Drew’s legacy without a clue as to how the heck she has prospered for eighty years.

    While some may say developer 2K Marin has let Bioshock 2 fall into the dreaded sophomore slump, I don’t necessarily think that’s true. It had to be unnerving to try to top such a runaway bestseller of a new property.

    Despite my problems with 'earlier' versions, Max and the Magic Marker has a lot more polish than I'd expect from a casual game, but not nearly as much as I'd expect from a commercially sold unit.

    The solution to this problem might be corrected by better choices, including more Star Trek-like non-violent solutions and away mission problems, and a less obnoxiously difficult equipment upgrade system, which might give captains the will to live in this world.

    I really didn't like this game. This is no Tex Murphy game. I didn't think things gelled and with the ordinary acting and poorly-integrated puzzles, I found it confusing and boring to play.

    A solid "A" for innovation and delivering it in the highest professional manner.

    Like all of the Jump Start products, Escape From Adventure Island is a quality product that would be a welcome addition to any family’s library of Wii games.

    An innocuous game with each case taking from 1- 2 hours to complete. It stays true to the spirit of the show and the price is a steal at $9.99.

    While The ABC Murders does not possess the depth of plot or crisp dialogue of the full-length Christie mysteries published by The Adventure Company (Murder on the Orient Express, Evil Under the Sun, And Then There Were None), it is an impressive opening salvo in what one hopes will be an ongoing series of games on the DS.

    It's unlikely to win any awards, but it is fun and satisfying to play.

    Overall, I found Curse of the Ancient Temple to be somewhat easy, but novice or younger gamers should find it challenging.

    This is a very modest game with big ambitions. I don't think I've played a game since Portal which is such few things to complain about. It costs $20 and you should be playing it right now.

    But even with all of these positive attributes, not to mention the other hallmarks of the series – the fabulous soundtrack, the suspenseful timed ending, the plot twists, the historical research, the phone calls to Nancy’s friend and boyfriend – I found the game very underwhelming.

    I should also mention that Adam's Venture is intended to be the first in a series of games. Hopefully, the other characters will get more to do in future games.

    Women’s Murder Club: Games of Passion is better than other games of this ilk, but considering the talent involved it should be much better.
