World gone wild

The turn-based game plays out strictly on an overhead map, allowing for city management, diplomatic negotiations and unit deployment. >More
 Best of the quest

This game does an amazing job of translating J.R.R. Tolkien's world. The landscape and buildings are the most beautifully designed I have yet seen in an MMORPG, and you can differentiate the various areas by their unique flora and architecture. >More

The PS3 version of EA's Fight Night: Round 3 isn't significantly different from the other versions. I was hoping it might work out some of the sound and graphics glitches that marred an otherwise impressive game, but no dice. >More
 In dubious battle

Even more impressive is the fact that you can modify the actual unit models, giving them different outfits, different color schemes and even different heads. >More
 Aliens vs. the KGB

One of my favorite games last year was Destroy All Humans!, a campy action-adventure title that introduced the surly yet lovable Crypto Sporidium 137. The new installment is yet another thoroughly addictive game. >More
 Train wreck

The latest railroad-building title is beautiful-looking and sure to impress geeks new to the franchise. >More

This game's new version offers several racing modes, but the real fun is in the Fight to the Top mode, which lets you start as a rookie driver in the Whelen Modified Series and slowly work your way up through the Craftsman Trucks and NBS series until you're offered a contract to drive for a NEXTEL Cup team. >More
 Space Chase

In this space sim, you play Kayron Jarvis, a young pilot who has just come into possession of an extremely powerful spaceship, the Darkstar One, at the onset of an alarming rise in interstellar tension. >More
 Zombie hunter


In this first-person shooter from Madison's Human Head Studios, a Native American named Tommy tries to save Earth after being abducted by aliens. Prey doesn't offer much that other first-person shooters haven't already provided, but it has an entertaining storyline and is fun to play. >More
