All-Pro Football 2K8 Review (Xbox 360, PS3)
February 03, 2008, 11:17 AM EST
All-Pro Football 2K8 is just a bit too similar to 2K5 to be called a real step forward
Spider-Man 3 Review (Xbox 360)

This is one Spider-man experience that spits venom instead of spinning a new web.

February 03, 2008, 9:44 AM EST
Nothing more than a formulaic "shoot the incoming alien" exercise.

February 03, 2008, 9:46 AM EST
More a sequel to Wii Sports than Wii Play ever hoped to be.
Endless Ocean Review (Wii)
February 01, 2008, 7:08 PM EST
More a learning tool than a game, Endless Ocean will appeal best to anyone interested in marine wildlife or gamers who cannot resist "collecting them all."
Lair Review (PS3)
February 01, 2008, 3:36 PM EST
Lair is worth only a short test flight before turning back in anticipation of a brewing storm.

One nice physics trick doesnâ€™t necessarily make for a nice racing game.
Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction Review (PS3)

Time Crisis 4 Review (PS3)

January 31, 2008, 12:13 PM EST
The only Xbox 360 hockey game offers enough visual improvements to satisfy.

January 31, 2008, 11:04 AM EST
The actual combat and confusing story keep this game from assassinating the competition.
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Review (Xbox 360, PS3)
January 31, 2008, 11:15 AM EST
If you buy just one first-person-shooter this year, it had better be Call of Duty 4.

MX vs. ATV Untamed Review (Xbox 360, PS3)
January 31, 2008, 11:56 AM EST

College Hoops 2K8 Review (Xbox 360, PS3)
January 31, 2008, 11:55 AM EST
2K Sports has introduced a lot of concepts and perfectly captured the college arena atmosphere, but the game itself needs a bit more work on all of its moving parts.
NFL Tour Review (Xbox 360, PS3)
January 31, 2008, 11:11 AM EST
