Hello Kitty Roller Rescue

When looked at through the normal critical lens, there's little here to recommend.


Graffiti Kingdom

The interesting thing about Graffiti Kingdom is its effort to make drawing and creativity count.


Geist

Geist fumbles what should've been its biggest selling point.


The Godfather

This emphasis on creative and efficient ruthlessness is positively Machiavellian.


Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories

Occurring three years prior to GTA III, Liberty City Stories gives players the same sort of criminal storyline and felonious side missions of other GTA games.


Guitar Hero

Although it's easy to pass off any game with a custom controller as a gimmick, that is clearly not the case here.


Gun

It's refreshing to see political correctness both ignored and respected at the same time.


Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance

Clear your entire schedule for the week, you've just purchased Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance.


Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children

Running around like fashion model action figures, nothing seems to affect Cloud and his brotherhood.


Fantastic 4

This is possibly the most claustrophobic game I have ever played.


FIFA Street 2

It seems as if EA is churning out these largely similar titles without much regard for quality.


Fable: The Lost Chapters

Fable offers a significant step forward in the evolution of the form.


Far Cry: Instincts

What is instantly intelligible when playing this new game is that Far Cry: Instincts has been created with the Xbox's limitations in mind.


Dungeon Siege II

The gameplay itself is very familiar and repetitive.


Day of Reckoning 2

For all its faults, Day of Reckoning 2 does take a few steps in the right direction.


Dynasty Warriors 5

Whatever Dynasty Warriors may lack in the complexity of its combat, it makes up for in the breadth of its level design.


The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe

For Christian-friendly content, Narnia will earn blessings.


City of Villains

Overtly brutal and disturbing crimes are really not the subject matter of the genre.


Call of Duty 2

Despite the emphasis on realism and teamwork, Call of Duty 2 still realizes that it is a game with a single human player.


Cars

We are finally getting to the point where controlling the avatar on-screen is actually like taking on the role of the movie's protagonist.
