Dark Sector Review (X360)
On a console stuffed with shooters, a new entry in the genre has to do something special to really stand out. Dark Sector brings the heat with a bladed throwing weapon and ability progression that keeps you playing just to see what nifty stuff you’ll get to do next. For every great thing Dark Sector does, however, other aspects are decidedly average, which tempers whatever rush you get from slicing enemies up.

Diablo III Gets Even Better With Ultimate Evil...
Diablo III was already pretty darn awesome on consoles, but it gets even better with the Ultimate Evil Edition which adds a ton of new content. See our full review for all of the details.
Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock Guitar Controller...
With a new mainline release of Guitar Hero comes a new plastic guitar to play with. We have always preferred the Guitar Hero guitars over the Rock Band guitars, so it is something to look forward to every year when we get to add a new plastic axe to the collection. For Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock, the guitar got a major redesign to allow for more user customization, but it comes at the cost of some functionality. It is still a decent guitar, but far from our favorite.

Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII Review (X360)
Blazing Angels is an arcade-style flight combat game that mixes intense dogfighting with easy to learn controls to create something that is at the same time better and worse than the other WWII flight games out there. Better because it is so easy to pick up and play, but worse because of bad AI and overpowered wingmen. It can be fun for a while, but we should expect more out of our $60 Xbox 360 games so Blazing Angels is a rental at best.
187 Ride or Die Review
187 Ride or Die is a thugged out car combat game that administers equal doses of driving and shooting. We have seen and done all of this before, however, so Ride or Die feels pretty flat. Find out all of the details right here.

Midnight Club: Los Angeles Review (X360)
Midnight Club’s first appearance in the hi-def era has taken a long time to get here, but the wait has certainly been worth it.

Games publishers tend to tell gamers what we want instead of actually listening to what the market truly thinks, and we're getting tired of it. Read more in our full article.
What You Really Want to Know About Batman:...
The GOTY Edition of Batman: Arkham City is a lot of things. It is a great package of DLC for a great game. And it has the worst box art we've seen in a long time. It is definitely worth buying, just avert your eyes from the cover lest you go blind. We have all of the info you need right here.
Blazing Angels 2: Secret Missions of WWII...
While the WWII FPS genre is rapidly cooling down, the WWII flight combat genre is just as tepid as ever. At least with the flight combat games we only have one company taking on World War II instead of dozens. Just what has Ubisoft learned in the year and a half since the first Blazing Angels hit the Xbox 360? A lot, it seems. Blazing Angels 2 is a definite improvement over the first game in just about every area, but it is still too easy for its own good.
Nyko Zoom for Kinect Review (X360 Kinect)

Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas are both great games, but which one is better? We take a look at what both games offer and come up with our favorite right here.
Rapala Pro Bass Fishing Review (X360)
We weren't fans of the last Rapala game, Rapala Fishing Frenzy 2009, but we were hopeful that the new Rapala Pro Bass Fishing would somehow be good. Activision's hunting games have greatly improved the last couple of years, after all, so we hoped that trend would carry over to fishing as well. The good news is that it is much better than Fishing Frenzy 2009. The bad news is that it still isn't very good, and not even a specialized fishing pole motion controller can save it.

See the full 65 song tracklist right here.
Xbox One Controller and Kinect Bring Improvements

Mad Catz MC2 360 Wheel Review (X360)
Mad Catz has brought their MC2 wheel to the Xbox 360 and the result is just as good as the MC2 Universal wheel I reviewed back in 2004. It is looking like the Xbox 360 is going to be the king of racing games just like the Xbox was last gen and it is absolutely worth it to have a steering wheel if you are serious about racing. The MC2 360 performs great, is comfortable to use, and won’t put too big of a dent in your wallet. What more could you ask for?

Fanatec Speedster 3 Force Shock Wheel Review
Playing racing games with a wheel is one of the most exciting and satisfying ways to play games that I can think of. When you play with a high-end wheel like the Fanatec Speedster 3, the experience gets even that much better. This is hands down the best wheel you can get for the Xbox. It is a bit expensive, but the nearly perfect design and performance make the $150 price tag much easier to swallow. Read all about it right here.

Xbox 360 Wireless Speed Wheel Review (X360)

NFL Head Coach Review (Xbox)
Who would have thought that a coaching simulator would be the next big thing in sports. Europe has been going crazy over this type of game for years and now EA has finally come up with one for the US.

You only get to sit back and watch the on-field action, however, which proves to be another weak point of an interesting, but flawed, game.
