    It seems like a fairly cheap move delivering what now comes across as an incomplete experience without purchasing this download content, and seeing as this is being listed with a $4.00/£3.20 buying price, it isn't exactly cheap to experience it.

    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.

    For role playing fans, this is the pinnacle of the genre, an all encompassing experience that is quite simply hinged on it's own grandiose and success, a must play title. For shooter/action fans, there might be a lot of waffle to wade through, but the merits of sticking with it outweigh any of the potential downfalls. Again, a must play game.

    Leo's quest to find out what happened to him should have been more about a journey why gamers won't pay 800 Microsoft Points to play Death by Cube. The story, graphics ,and sound are mediocre at best and not something Square Enix fans would expect from such a distinguished company.

    Konami presented the XBLA with a fine turn-based RPG game that will have players testing out different strategies and exploring every nook and cranny on the battle field seeking plunder. While hardcore enthusiasts will find this a mediocre diversion, many gamers will find this a pleasant addition to their games library.

    Dark Void is an impressive title that simply falls short of greatness due to being so run of the mill.

    Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter for the Xbox 360 is a return of a classic. It may seem a little dated by some, but I personally believe that for both newcomers and nostalgic gamers like myself, the HD remake that is now available still provides a wonderful experience in terms of both speed and adrenaline pumping action.

    The action in Army of Two: The 40th Day, whilst it can drag its heels somewhat to begin with, it soon picks up, and to avoid repetition on multiple playthroughs there's always different weapons and attachments to experiment with to give different results.

    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.

    Without a doubt, Darksiders is a game that stands on the shoulders of giants, and Vigil Games clearly could not be more proud of this fact, as their passionate yet careful design demonstrates that they both respect and know how to borrow from the best

    Bayonetta is a solid action game that is filled with dark humour, sex appeal, silliness, plenty of action and enough cinematic quality to keep you well entertained even when you're not slicing up demon butt.

    There has been an internal struggle here to find any pinnacle highlights and potential attractions that other players may find interest in; in the end I have managed to narrow the list down to having a decent capacity of players for multiplayer and an intriguing idea for using satellite imagery. It’s just a shame that they were both wasted on such a inadequately produced and simply frustrating experience of a game.

    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.

    While this is only Episode 1 of 3, Alien Breed: Evolution outshines most 800MSP XBLA games in terms of overall value as there's certainly a good 6+ hours to keep you on your toes in not only the single-player campaign, but the co-operative missions as well.

    While Qix++ offers some new twists on an old classic it falls short of what the standard is for a remake. The game play is fun, but it is hard to ignore the generic inspired graphics, monotonous techno, and lack of content. The game costs 800 Microsoft points, so unless you enjoy feeling slighted your points are better off spent elsewhere.

    The game isn't a straight up shooter, which is a good thing, and if you've got the patience to test the stealth mechanics properly, you'll find some rewarding moments.

    Even for its shortcomings online and the control issues, though, Call of Duty Classic is still an enjoyable singleplayer experience that will give fans of the series a glimpse at the game that started it all…provided you’re willing to drop 1200 Microsoft points on the shorter ride.

    There's a reason why Bethesda have kept quiet with this game and quite frankly it's because it's under par.

    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.

    For fans of the genre MX vs. ATV Reflex will be a no brainer day one purchase, and we suspect the excellent production values combined with positive word of mouth will get many casuals on board too.

    With a dark and gritty seasonal feel to the level design, an endless stream of undead cannon fodder and a mad Dr. You can't go wrong with this DLC.

    While Madden NFL Arcade gives little attention to the single player game types it is rooted in sharing the experience either locally or online. The gameplay is easy and fun enough to lure in the non-football gurus as well as the seasoned Madden veterans.

    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.

    This is one sequel certainly worthy of a purchase, and no doubt a contender even for game of the year.

    RIDE could've been a great game with a broken controller and it still would've been tough to justify. Instead, its a lacklustre game, full of sloppy cuts and rehashed elements. Then on top of all that bad design, it fails to deliver on its only virtue.

    The co-operative and multiplayer experience of Left 4 Dead 2 is much like that of the original, but with some intriguing new modes of play.

    Indy 2 is well worth the money. Lego is fun, Indiana Jones is fun and if you put them together you get nothing but FUN FUN FUN !!
