Karaoke Revolution Party Review
Karaoke Revolution Party gives you the opportunity to show off not only your singing ability but your dancing skills as well. With solid gameplay, more than 50 songs, and a ton of modes, Karaoke Revolution Party is a pretty solid value. If you are playing by yourself it isn’t quite a must buy, but if you have people around to play it with it is worth every penny.
King of Fighters: Maximum Impact: Maniax Review
The King of Fighters series has finally made the jump to 3D and the results are actually pretty good. It isn't as flash as DOA Ultimate or Mortal Kombat: Deception, but this Xbox Live enabled fighter has it where it counts and that is fast, fun, satisfying gameplay. Find out all about it right here.
Kingdom Under Fire: Heroes Review
Phantagram and Microsoft’s follow up to last year’s critical (but, sadly, not commercial) success Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders follows the more/bigger/better philosophy of sequel making. Heroes isn’t too much different from Crusaders, but it is every bit as enjoyable and is definitely worth playing. The key addition this year – Six player free for all on Xbox Live. Find out all of the details right here in our full review.
Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders Review
Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders is a fantastic mix of hack n' slash, RPG, and RTS gameplay that creates an experience like no other. Now only do you have to position your troops on the battlefield and outfit them with the best equipment, but you also have to fight right alongside them! Find out what makes KUF: The Crusaders work so well in our full review.
L.A. Rush Review
L.A. Rush is Midway’s take on the street racing craze and while it certainly isn’t a bad game, it is far from great. The racing is decent if not uninspired, but the story mode is lame, there is no customization (isn’t customization 100% of the appeal in street racing ?), and no online play which all add up to mean L.A. Rush is light years behind the competition. Read our full review for all of the details.
Lego Star Wars Review
Lego Star Wars takes all of the greatest moments of Star Wars Episode I, II, and III and recreates them with Lego pieces. Sounds crazy, but for those of us that grew up with Legos and dreaming we were off in a galaxy far, far away, Lego Star Wars is a dream come true.
Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude Review
Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude is a fun sort of adult themed dating simulator. After playing for a while, you'll likely decide that venturing out into the world to find your own girl is a better pastime than helping Larry. This game is rated "M" for Mature, so please consider who you are buying it for and always remember to check and use the ESRB ratings printed on every box.
Madden NFL 06 Review
EA Sports has always taken good care of the Madden franchise. New features are always added and the game plays consistently better than the last version year after year after year. At least that was how it was up until this year. Madden 06 is still an incredible game of football, but there isn't a whole lot of stuff that sets it apart from Madden 2005 (and the new features that were added aren't all that hot). Find out if this is the year you should skip the new Madden in our full review.
Manhunt is a pretty controversial game and in this review I wrote for GamesFirst I outline the good, the bad, and why the world might have been better off had Manhunt not been made at all.
Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects Review
Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects looks awesome on paper – a potential huge cast of characters, online fighting, and gorgeous graphics – but the final product can only be considered a disappointment. Clunky fighting, a lame single player mode, and a limited roster of characters you’ll actually want to play as will sour you on the game within the first fifteen minutes you spend with it. Find out all of the details right here.
Marvel vs. Capcom 2
Marvel vs. Capcom 2 for Xbox is proof that 2D fighters are still cool. Get your fight on by reading our review.
MechAssault 2: Lone Wolf Review
MechAssault sold a lot of people on Xbox Live when it was released a couple of years ago. Now, Microsoft has released the sequel, MechAssault 2: Lone Wolf, and the same magic seems to be back. Competition is a little tougher these days for online shooters, but MechAssault 2 still more than holds its own. Find out more right here.
Medal of Honor: European Assault Review
Medal of Honor: European Assault is EA's latest Medal of Honor game and it is arguably the best entry in the series. There is some pretty tough competition out there in the WWII shooter genre these days, howeve. See how European Assault stacks up in our full review.
Mercenaries is a go anywhere, do anything, blow up everything action game that is sure to satisfy anyone with an appetite for destruction. Fiind out all about it right here.
Metal Slug 4 & 5 Review
The Metal Slug games have been a staple of the arcade for more than a decade. Simple but fun 2D shooting is the name of the game here and few other series have managed to match the frenetic pace and overall excitement of Metal Slug. Now you can experience Metal Slug 4 & 5 in one slick two disc package right in the comfort of your own home on the Xbox. Find out all of the details right here.
Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition Review
Midnight Club 3 takes everything that was great in MC2 and kicks it up about ten notches. Add in Xbox Live play and a ton of customization options and you not only have the best Midnight Club game yet but also one of the best racing games on the Xbox. Check it out.
Midway Arcade Treasures 2 Review
Twenty great old arcade games for $20 is a pretty good deal even if the games aren't as fun as you remember. Midway Arcade Treasures 2 gives you all of the old-school goodness you can stand for a very reasonable price so despite its flaws it is still recommended. Find out more in our full review.

Midway Arcade Treasures
Twenty games for $20 sounds like a good buy, but is Midway Arcade Treasures really worth your time? Check out our review.
Mortal Kombat: Deception Review
Fans of Mortal Kombat are in for a treat with Deception. Everything is bigger and better and dripping with more MK goodness than ever before. The actual fighting itself is still a little suspect, but the wealth of great characters along with interesting features and modes make Mortal Kombat: Deception worth checking out.
Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks Review
Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks takes all of the best parts of the MK franchise - the characters and storylines along with a bunch of blood and gore - and highlights them in a beat-em-up adeventure game. No dial-a-combo poorly balanced fighting engine here, this is just a pure button mashing beat-em-up and the result is one of the coolest MK games to come out in quite a while. Find otu all of the details in our full review.
MVP Baseball 2005 Review
MVP Baseball 2005 is highly polished, extremely true to the game of baseball, and is simply a joy to play. For only $29.99, this is a great game at a great price and is definitely worth picking up. Read all about it right here.

MX vs ATV Unleashed Review
Hot on the heels of last year's outstanding MX Unleashed, Rainbow Studios and THQ are back with MX vs ATV Unleashed. Featuring a ton of tracks, several different vehicles, and tied together by solid gameplay, this is a must have for Xbox offroad racing fans.
Myst IV: Revelations Review
Myst IV continues the traditions laid out by the original Myst and is a solid blend of gorgeous graphics and problem solving. It isn't for everyone, though, since it moves at a leisurely pace and some of the puzzles are hard enough to make you want to pull your hair out. Read our full review for more.
Namco Museum 50th Anniversary Review
Namco is celebrating its 50th anniversary with a new collection of classic games. It is far from perfect however. Find out all of the details right here.

NASCAR fans should be very happy with this year's game from EA. Everything has been improved and the result is the perfect NASCAR game. Great graphics and sound along with slick gameplay make this one a winner.
NBA 2K6 Review
Visual Concepts’ NBA games have dominated the pro hoops scene for years now and NBA 2K6 continues that streak. With heavily modified gameplay, improved AI, and a wealth of features and modes, NBA 2K6 is an incredible game that is a must own for basketball fans.
NBA Live 06 Review
NBA Live 06 is here just in time to get you pumped up for the NBA season. The biggest change this year is the addition of freestyle superstar controls that make great players such as Shaquille O’Neal and Steve Nash play more like their real life counterparts. The rest of the game isn’t too different from Live 2005, but the overall package is still an improvement and is highly recommended. Find out all about it in our full review.

Need for Speed Most Wanted Review - Xbox, Xbox 360
Need for Speed Most Wanted is literally the best of all of the Need for Speed worlds.

NHL 06 Review
Following the lockout that cancelled the 2004/05 season, the NHL made quite a few changes to their league in the hopes of making the game faster and more exciting. If the videogame version of the new NHL is any indication, we should be in for a fun ride this year.

NHL 2K6 Review
The NHL 2K series has always been extremely solid and this year’s game is no exception. It is packed with features and modes and minigames and it plays better than ever thanks to a couple of new gameplay additions. The presentation suffers a bit with the loss of the ESPN license, but overall NHL 2K6 is an excellent hockey game that NHL fans will love.
Ninja Gaiden Black Review
Tecmo and Team Ninja are back with a new and improved version of 2004's Ninja Gaiden. This is the same game at its core, but there are a lot of new features and modes and an easier difficulty level that make Black a far superior game to the original release. And at $30, the price is definitely right even if you already own the original. Find out all about it in our full review.
Oddworld: Stranger' s Wrath Review
Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath is a unique mix of first and third-person gameplay that comes together to make one of the most interesting gaming experiences so far. The graphics are gorgeous. The story is amazing. This game has it all. Find out everything in our full review.
Outlaw Golf 2 Review
Outlaw Golf 2 is the sequel to the "M" rated golf game that combined crude humor and violence with the classic game of golf. Everything is bigger and better and funnier, so fans of the original should be happy. For the low price of $20, it is worth checking out for just about anyone.
