    Pure Football has got problems, any hardcore football fan should stay well away from this one and stick with what you've got already.

    Ben 10: Alien Force: Rise of Hex is a good game that will probably appeal to fans of the show who can understand the underlying elements contained within.

    All in all, the time I spent playing this game I enjoyed, especially the more challenging levels that required a bit of thinking to finish. However at 800 MS points it's hard to justify spending that much when there are so many better games out there.

    Dead to Rights: Retribution is a solid game which looks pretty good based on a fictitious NYC. The combat whilst dynamic, does get a bit repetitious and by mission 10 you'll be glad it's over rather than begging for more.

    Once you remove the shackles of expectation and simply bask in what the game throws at you (keeping a well opened mind of course) you will come out the other side perplexed and captivated.

    Despite the lack of truly compelling gameplay and any kind of replay value, I would still recommend this game due to its rewarding and involving crime and puzzle solving elements, and obviously, because of its strong story.

    Certainly it's worth picking up down the road when it gets its price slashed like the Crash Course DLC for the original title has had recently. Regardless of this, if you're still very much infected, sorry, I mean invested in the co-op experience and can drag your buddies along for the ride, then the new campaign will certainly offer up the value to justify the cost.

    Puzzle Chronicles tries its hardest to be just like its big brother Puzzle Quest, but it's hard to live up to such lofty goals. The core gameplay is fun, challenging, and easy to pick up, but it lacks the addictive quality that other puzzlers posses.

    As DLC goes, it's a decent mission and the extra items/character is cool to have. But for the price of entry it could have had a little more content. This add-on can only really be recommended for die hard fans with points to burn.

    Taking into account the amount of content and pricing of 1200MSP, we've given the Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus Package a respectable Overall Rating of 6.5/10. Modern Warfare 2 veterans will surely be picking the Stimulus Package up, and it does what it sets out to do, in giving players some new, well laid out maps to do battle on.

    How to Train Your Dragon isn't a bad game; given its status as a movie game it has a level of polish that's really quite admirable. The game design, however, is all over the place.

    As an average RPG fan, fun moments in Risen came in doses and to get to them, it required some patience which includes saving lots, various boring missions and taking plenty of damage.

    Strikeforce has added a few new additions to the series but all in all it just hasn't done enough with it. In reality the game feels like it should have stayed on the PSP.

    Dante's Inferno is a decent action hack and slasher, that is ultimately let down by a lack of vision with its gameplay
    • 59 Metascore

    KrissX will be a worthy addition to anybody who enjoys a laid-back puzzler that doesn't provide an over-stimulating challenge.

    Overall, Blood Bowl is a game that will appeal to fans and non-fans alike, providing the later stick with it and give it a chance. Unfortunately, most won't, and understandably, will look elsewhere soon after loading the game up.

    Vancouver 2010 the video game isn't a bad game as it does capture the essence of the winter Olympics. However, a lack of variety with the events makes for a game that's not going to hold interest for too long, especially once mastered.

    If you can put up with its flaws and want to lose yourself playing a game for hours then this is for you but if your the kind of person who gets annoyed easily and who wants a truly immersive RPG then stay well away.

    Matt Hazard: Blood, Bath and Beyond is worth a play through alone for its comical dialogue that give it a B-movie impression and the numerous allusions to other videogames.

    To summarise, Polar Panic has a certain sparkle about it as a kid’s puzzle game. It’s rather self explanatory, uncomplicated and simplistic, but in a way, that’s quite a breath of fresh air from the land of modern games where everything has to be sophisticated in some way or manner.

    Avatar feels like a lost opportunity. While the jungle and background scenery of the Pandora world are lush and vibrant, it feels like most of the game's budget was put into this one aspect of the title.

    While most RPG style puzzlers will always be in the shadow of Puzzle Quest; Gyromancer makes a strive to be more, but falls short of that goal. Players will spend hours enjoying the puzzle part of the game, but for 1200 Microsoft points some may feel a bit cheated because of the insipid story.

    Planet 51 is a game for kids, it’s by no means entertaining, but is the perfect fit for a GTA friendly open world game – perfect training for the later years. The problem is that even youngsters will likely quickly tire of the game, assuming they’ve had the privilege of playing anything that offers up gaming entertainment.

    Technically, features and presentation are well executed and bug free. However, we have some issues recommending it unconditionally due to missing that something that makes a player take the experience seriously and invest effort to earn progression.

    Duels of the Planeswalkers will keep you busy for a very long time.

    With its second season, its safe to say that Sam and Max has found its groove in this current generation of gaming, delivering a refreshing change of pace from the standard gameplay types that some gamers, including myself, can get tired of every once in a while.

    South Park Lets Go Tower Defence seems like a game that only fans of the cartoon will fully appreciate and to narrow that down further only those who have played similar games will enjoy this as the action aspect of the game cant hold up by itself.
    • 43 Metascore

    Perhaps the younger gamers who are fans of the show will find something worthwhile here but the shallow gameplay will deter most.

    Saw
    It's the perfect rental for Saw fans, and the same can be said for those seeking another game to boost their gamerscore.

    Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, whilst having a ridiculous name, sadly falls into the pile of games best avoided (achievement junkies look in your bargain bin!).
