Guitar Hero: Aerosmith
Guitar Hero: Aerosmith is more Guitar Hero, but it is overpriced being a shorter game with a hit and miss soundtrack.
The Guitar Hero juggernaut is pretty much everywhere being the cultural phenomenon it is in media today. With Activision and Neversoft in charge of the franchise, it feels like deja vu releasing game after game every yea... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Soulcalibur is still fun, but missing modes and lack of the online play prevent it from being a complete package.
1999 may seem like a long time ago, but it was the year Soul Calibur came out exclusively on Dreamcast and changed the fighting game landscape for a number of years. To this day, it is still the most critically acclaimed... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful

There are games that you feel you can get away from any situation unscathed. Then there are games that just wants to kill you at any instant. Ninja Gaiden II is that such game that where lots of skill and luck matters. T... Read Full Review1 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Commando 3 is just another twin stick shooter that plays it safe, but it is still a fun multiplayer experience.
Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3 is actually the third game in Capcom's Commando series with Mercs as the last game. It definitely lives up to the Commando name of being an old-school style shooter with no story and a... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (Platinum)
LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures
Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Conspiracy
If anyone were to sum up gaming this decade, they would think of three words: Grand Theft Auto. These games that started with GTA III ushered a new era because of its open-world game design and pushed violence to a whole... Read Full Review0 of 3 users found the following review helpful
Lost Planet: Extreme Condition Colonies Edition (Platinum Hits)
Dr. Mario Online Rx is a great and addictive puzzler for fans of the series while the online runs simply and smoothly.

Assault Heroes 2
Mario Kart Wii is still worthy to the series, but feels just like another rehash for Nintendo to check off the list.
Nintendo's tradition of rehashing games every generation continues with the latest entry in the famed Mario Kart series, unoriginally titled Mario Kart Wii. From the get go, the case of deja vu sets in as it is the same ... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Grand Theft Auto IV
Gran Turismo 5 Prologue
The King of Iron Fist tournament returns again and the new gameplay additions make it a worthy entry in the franchise.
Namco Bandai brought back the Tekken games to their glory with Tekken 5 and its upgrade, Dark Resurrection. It focused on what made them great and also delivered on the storyline, which I think does the best job at it in... Read Full Review7 of 9 users found the following review helpful
Ikaruga is quite arguably the last great 2D shoot-em-up ever having started in the arcades, then came console versions on Dreamcast and GameCube. While few have appreciated this classic of bullet spamming, polarity switc... Read Full Review0 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Mr. Driller Online could of been the Driller game we have been waiting for, but ends up simply rushed and broken.
Namco's Mr. Driller series has found success at Japan, but none of that was found in the United States. It is basically a spin-off of the old-school classic Dig Dug starring Mr. Driller and he simply drills to the ground... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Rocketmen: Axis of Evil tries too hard to differentiate itself from a normal twin stick shooter despite its efforts.
In a world where twin stick shooters run rampant in this generation of consoles, only a handful of them stand out of everything else. Capcom's Rocketmen: Axis of Evil tries to be more than just your typical shooter by ha... Read Full Review0 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Bully: Scholarship Edition
God of War: Chains of Olympus
The shoot-em-up genre or the "shump" if you want to be fancy is pretty much meant for the hardcore audience. Lately, it feels like a resurgence of these shumps is happening this year for Xbox Live Arcade. It started with... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Devil May Cry 4
Devil May Cry 4 is great and fun game, but the usual flaws that prevent the series from perfection are still here.
In 2001, Capcom introduces Dante to the gaming world in the first Devil May Cry, a hero unlike no other at the time with a cocky personality and fights with lots of style. Since then, the series has gone through a roller... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Burnout Paradise changes the script for the franchise with the open city approach and it works well despite minor flaws.
When EA and Criterion Games first announced Burnout Paradise early last year, the reception was mixed to fans of previous games. Some would say that the developers sold out with the decision of Burnout going on an open-w... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Not only Rez HD is a steal at 800 MS Points, it is perhaps the best game available on Xbox Live Arcade right now.
Before Lumines, Meteos, and Every Extend Extra, Q Entertainment released Rez earlier this decade for the Dreamcast and the Playstation 2. It became a sleeper hit and a revolutionary game at the same time defining the rhy... Read Full Review3 of 3 users found the following review helpful
No More Heroes
Virtua Fighter 5
The best fighting game gets better with online play, but an arcade stick is highly recommended for a better experience.
Virtua Fighter 5 has been the best fighting game out on this current generation of consoles, but the best gets better with the XBOX 360 version with the huge addition of online play. Sure, the series is pretty deep for c... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
