Very difficult and strange game, but a heck of a story.
Finally, a game with a plot. No mere shoot-em-up where you have to rescue the world from yet another virus that makes everybody into aliens. This game plays like a Stephen King novel. It borrows from ...
Get to work planting, harvesting and meeting cows made out of candy canes. Really.
The Facebook phenomenon is a simple but involving little adventure, wherein you start a farm and raise various plants and creatures. You start small, with just a little land and money. Over time, you ...
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
A huge fantasy world that resembles a novel as much as a game.
This game has fantastic graphics, and a vast open world format that enables you to walk, walk, walk all over the province. It'll be a while before you're able to afford a horse, so get used to just fo...
Brunswick Pro Bowling
Wow, pretty colors.
In this game, they really went for the visuals. It looks clear and sharp right down to the sparkling colors on the bowling balls. However, it loses some of this admiration after you have to flip throu...
Things on Wheels
Drive a remote control car around oddball tracks.
In this game, you drive a cute little remote control car. Some of the tracks are indoors, others outside, and some are both. There's a practice section in which you can accomplish, well, nothing. ...
Incredible graphics, a realistic storyline and the most gripping atmosphere I've seen in a game in years. Wow. Just wow.
This game could win awards for its graphics alone, but the pretty face isn't all there is to this epic thriller. Here is one of the most richly detailed and lifelike games ever created. I'm not kiddin...
Michael Jackson The Experience
Finally, a party game that actually is one.
Anyone who enjoys Michael Jackson's music should find a ton of things to like in this game. While it's not as funny as the shoot-em-up arcade game he had in the late 1980s, it's packed with real songs...
Structured like a novel or movie- and as much fun as many of them.
If you like science fiction, spy movies and adventure games that really call on your ability to sort through the depth of information, this one's for you. In 2047, many countries have come together to...

This game is odd, but a fun break from standard types of plots.
In this title, you pilot a special sea craft which is equipped with cameras. Your job is to find and photograph each major type of creature. You can also locate secret stars for extra points. Feast yo...
This title takes us to Germany's well-known freeway. It's not going to be a regular drive to the beach, though.
In some countries, automobile enthusiasts have to turn to race tracks in order to see top drivers test the power of full speed. In Germany, you can do that any day, on the Autobahn, which has no speed...
You'll need a lot of coordination as you move to the beats.
This game is from the same people who brought you Dance Dance Revolution. It works with the Kinect, so there is no need for the additional floor mat with this title. However, you will need to have eno...
Your Shape: Fitness Evolved
Limited options and an annoying setup hamper this game.
This looks like it's going to be a handy and fun game. A fitness title with simple routines- what could be better? Well, when you start, you have to set up the camera. I don't mean just switch on ...
Kinect Adventures! (w/Kinect)
Fun assortment of in-games lets you ride the rapids, play a variation of handball, and get sweaty.
This was a title included with the Kinect device. It features a group of separate games such as Rallyball and a ride-the-rapids challenge. People who played Hydro Thunder will enjoy the extra "Yipes, ...
Strange game blends jigsaw puzzles and electronic music for a result that's fun and soothing, as well as challenging.
This game bears a resemblance to Tetris. However, the format is a little different. Instead of filling in space with blocks that fall from above, you get to place pieces anywhere on a large frame. Thi...
Hydro Thunder Hurricane
The sequel to the arcade and console hit.
Hydro Thunder was a favorite in the arcades, and proved just as popular once it appeared on the home system. You piloted a super powered speedboat, through settings from the tropics, to sinking palace...
Fun bowling game set in a world of challenging and offbeat courses.
This game takes the simple premise of ten-pins bowling and gives you a number of lanes on which to try your skills. The levels have different traps and challenges such as hills, ponds, curved floors a...
Red Seeds Profile
Reminds you of 'Silent Hill' and other horror-themed games, but has a more agile mystery element as well.
What goes on in the small town of Greenvale? An FBI agent is on his way down a rain-slick road when a crash makes him visit for a while - whether he likes it or not. He must scour the landscape for cl...
Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack the Ripper
Gloomy streets and a madman on the loose.
This game blends the truth and fiction. Jack the Ripper was the murderer in one of the most puzzling unsolved crimes in history. Sherlock Holmes is the most popular detective in fiction. This title br...
Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard
Blam blam blam! Video game hero takes on, uh, other video game heroes.
This game is part first person shooter, part satire on video games. You'll see segments which rip off other popular titles, from Wild West gunfights to the Max Payne series and so on (not least the mo...
Space shooter that is reminiscent of other games, but is fast-moving enough to be worth a try.
One of the first impressions that I got of this game was that it was a lot like "Doom." Space battle, large world in which you roam-- we've seen these points a million times. However, "Section 8" also...
Indianapolis 500 Evolution
Get behind the wheel with the old-school Indy style.
This game puts you in command of a car from the pre-television days, with a narrow body and hair-trigger wheel control. The cars are actually hard to drive-- when's the last time you didn't have to bu...
Good graphics, but annoying playability flaws.
This game looked so promising when I saw it at the store. Once I played it, however, I wasn't so impressed. As with so many other titles, they put all the good stuff on the box. What I got was a game ...
Rise of the Argonauts
Beautifully illustrated game of the Greek legends.
This game is a combination of several factors. There are sword bash-em-up sequences, colorful palaces, discussions where you must meet several neighbors and decide carefully what to ask, and plenty of...
Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2009
Scary game where you can catch the food, or become it.
They weren't kidding when they gave this game its title. You play a big-game hunter, and you get to go to some of the most storied locations in the world. From the icy reaches of Alaska, to the Sereng...
A decent game with some player control issues.
In this action title, you play as an agent who must protect the president. This is a good idea for a game; we're doing fine so far. You start the game by watching a lifelike fake news clip. Then you g...
Gorgeous graphics and a pressure-packed story.
Anyone would enjoy the chance to visit a beautiful island resort. Except, that is, for someone who got murdered there. So it is when the owner of a luxury hotel is discovered dead on a beach. It gets ...
Cute woodland creatures, impossible bank shots, and everything else that could drive you round the bend.
This game claims to be an adaptation of the game pachinko, with the added features of cartoon animals, moving obstacles and devilishly clever board designs. In a few rounds, however, it may inspire yo...

Able to leap tall buildings in about 75 bounds...

Bomberman: Act Zero
Think on your feet!
This game is the latest adaptation of a long-running series. You play the nimble competitor whose job it is to, well, blow stuff up. Yet your game is not all simple: there's someone at the other end o...
Pimp My Ride
Fun TV show is, unfortunately, too clumsy as a video game.
I love the TV show "Pimp my Ride." It's funny, it shows you how they fix up cars, and it always has a good ending. I was really looking forward to this game on the X Box 360. Sad to say, the controls ...
Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Conspiracy
The movie hero comes to the X Box 360.
This is one of the few games with which I can say, I liked it more than I thought I would. Movie adaptations have a way of being less than fluid in the control department, but this time they got it ri...
Kane & Lynch: Dead Men
Take a trip to your evil side as you play a member of a criminal gang.
This is a very dark and violent game. It plays like an action movie. The plot is excellent, with the opening scenes alone being very tense and shocking. You play a criminal on the run. You and your pa...
Alien Hominid HD
Falls a little short of its potential.
This game opens with a very promising range of characters and a charming style of art that harks back to the great early arcade games. It's fun and relatively easy to pick up the gameplay: you just ru...
Guitar Hero II (Game only)
Opening stages are a bit slow, but everything else rocks just fine.
This game is the second volume in the highly popular Guitar Hero series. I started play with the third one, so this game is like a prequel for me. As such, I can see the differences, one of which is a...
Help me, I can't stop playing this game.
Carcassone was tough to get the hang of, but once I paid attention to the rules, the games kept adding up at lightning speed. It's so much fun to play, you'll find yourself scurrying to finish castles...
Fun and nimble little race-car game.
If you liked the days of simple electric car racing on slot tracks, you will enjoy this game. It features a number of cars and an assortment of tracks that live up to the appellation "mad"-- as in "cr...
Go! Go! Break Steady
This breakdancing game isn't DDR, but it's a lot of fun anyway.
This rhythm game takes an approach that is slightly different from its predecessors such as Dance Dance Revolution and Guitar Hero. You play as a breakdancer who must perform steps to the beats churne...
Not bad. A player-friendly scrolling space game.
This game will remind players of Scramble, Zaxxon, Parsec or any other early arcade space shooters. The color scheme is a little off-- red seems to register as only blood red, and the character shapes...
You think you know pain? You know nothing.
Fans of the Galaga arcade games can rest assured that the new version isn't going to be just a cheesy rip-off. Indeed, what you get is a swirling multi-dimensional world that immediately sets your pul...
