    While I had a lot of fun with Stranglehold, this is one of those games you can easily get your money’s worth in a rental.

    Bioshock is everything we've been hoping it could be. It defines the action/adventure genre, combining the thrills of a FPS, the strategy of a RPG, the looks of a visual masterpiece, the sounds of an epic, and the story of a full-blown mystery. It's not perfect, but it's damn close.

    Yep, Bomberman is one of the greatest party games of all time.

    Overall, All-Pro Football 2K8 is a solid first entry from 2K Sports, but it comes a year too late as the Madden series is already plowing away at full stride on the 360 and PS3.

    The Xbox Live Arcade game’s only true weakness is the 800 point ($10.00) price tag. If there were a couple more modes, the original game was included or perhaps a multiplayer mode was added I’d recommend it for everyone. But at it’s current price, it’s just too much compared to other excellent games like UNO that are only 400 points ($5.00). Still, if you don’t mind the cost, it’s definitely worth a look.

    Shadowrun is a good online FPS.

    Brooktown High is poor by design and though the concept running it may be admirable the execution is not. Bad conversation, lackluster mini-games, pointless statistics, and a below average presentation don't necessarily help the dating sim genre make headway in America.

    Shrek the Third isn’t an altogether bad game, but is certainly a sloppy one.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 62 Critic Score
    Overall, Shrek the Third is another by-the-numbers movie licensed game. There’s nothing remarkably wrong with this game, but nothing that great about it either.

    With its short play time, and lacking mini games, it won’t take the average gamer more than a few days to get their fill of Shrek, Donkey, and Puss.

    Guitar Hero 2 is the definitive rock ‘n roll game. It’s got a highly impressive set list, addictive gameplay, online leaderboards, downloadable content and new multiplayer aspects. Whammy bar issue aside, this is one title you need to pick up.

    A well-crafted game with few glaring problems and a high, but manageable learning curve. I think its replay value is hurt somewhat by a lack of Wi-Fi play, where a player vs. player time attack mode could probably work really well, but since so many parts of the game are rock-solid, I’m willing to easily forgive it for not being present here.

    A lot of them still have a nostalgic feel, and 2D games tend to age better than 3D visuals. Ditto with audio, though for more experienced gamers like me, these classic tunes bring back many fond arcade memories.

    If you must pick up this title because of a significant other, then buy another version. I can’t guarantee the controls will be better, but you’ll save a few bucks and the GCN version does play on the Wii as well.

    Meet the Robinsons is the archetypal licensed game - it just exists to push the license, it does nothing new, it derives much of its gameplay from other, far better and more popular games, and doesn’t need to be played by anyone outside of the license’s fanbase.

    Almost as good as its big brother counterparts. Almost.

    If you’re really into battleship warfare, or looking for something to get your grandfather who’s a World War Two navy vet that needs something else to play on his DS besides Brain Age, you’ll like this game. Everyone else should go play Advance Wars: DS or one of its earlier titles.

    An incredible accomplishment on the PS2. While it has lost a few features compared to the 360 version, most of the concept and game has remained intact, and remains enjoyable to play.

    It is a decent game in its own right and can be quite fun at times, but there is nowhere near enough content to justify its asking price.

    Wing Island is classic early console fodder: something that sits on the shelf next to good games and waits for clueless customers to pick the game up before it shows up in the budget bin for more clueless customers to buy because of its price tag.

    It’s rare that a licensed game is worth playing for those uninterested in the license, but this is one of those games that earned that distinction.

    The control is flawed and attempts to handle the system's limitations in an imaginative, yet dysfunctional manner. There are many problems here from the button configuration and poor AI to auto-targeting.

    It’s quirky, it’s funny, and it’s challenging. It’s everything a side-scrolling shooter should be.
    • 63 Metascore

    The gameplay is fun at times, but the manner with which you have to progress through single player to unlock cards is downright grueling and unrewarding.

    If you’re looking for a decent single player game to plow through in a weekend, Bullet Witch would make a terrific rental.

    If you’re a puzzle gaming fan, you’ll probably enjoy the strategy, and if you’re younger, you might enjoy progressing further in order to view more Disney-themed levels. The only thing I feel the game truly lacks is Wi-Fi play.

    Halo fans will be happy to hear this game also comes with an invitation to the Halo 3 multiplayer beta.

    Your average dungeon crawler. The graphics are nothing special, the audio isn’t amazing, and it’s a short game, but if you enjoy exploring dungeons and have $20 to spare, then I would defiantly consider getting this one.

    As one, I felt the game lacked the show’s trademark wit, and didn’t do a good job of capturing the characters.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    If you’re looking for a game that has many different game elements to it and a story you’ll need to take a few drops of acid to understand, this is your game.
