UFC 2009 Undisputed
Review by. The Naitcha Boy
Rated T for Alcohol,Blood,Language,Mild Suggestive Themes, and Violence
The UFC hits the Xbox 360 with a swift kick to the head! Ultimate Fighting Championship fans finally have a strong representation of what goes on in the octagon at their fingertips. THQ and developmental team YUKES took a shot at what has failed in the past... and that's making a realistic MMA style of game, and I must say I am impressed with their first attempt.
Epic Pet Wars
Or Fantasy Violence
Online RPG’s are all the rage these days for owners of the iPhone or the iTouch. All of them play about the same; build up your posse with new members, do some mundane training or job with your crew, battle other people’s crews, rinse, and repeat. With so many mmorpg type games available for the iPhone/iTouch, it’s hard to sift through what is worth your time and what is not. For the most part, these types of games are mindless wastes of time. That is somewhat true in the case of Epic Pet Wars but the game definitely stands out from it’s counterparts in this genre.
Rag Doll Kung Fu:Fists of Plastic
Rated M for Mature
Score 7.5 out of 10
What do you get when you mix dolls and beat-em ups in a video game? Rag Doll Kung Fu: Fists of plastic. This is an enjoyable multiplayer game that has a Little Big Planet feel to it. To begin with, the graphics are pleasing to the eyes. I enjoy the real look of the dolls, aka your fighter. The music in the game is enjoyable and catchy with its “oriental” charm. The sound of every punch and kick is delightful. The game itself has many different modes on multiplayer, yet online play is surprisingly absent (why do you make things so hard on yourself Sony?). These multiplayer modes include king of the hill and capture the fish (which involves throwing a fish in a basket to score while enemies pummel you). Single player offers rewarding challenges that are enjoyable and teach you how to play the game. The best part of the game is the involvement of the SixAxis controller to perform the special moves. You go from shaking the controller to form a giant lightning bolt to hurl at your enemies, to raising the controller in the air and bringing it down to cause an electrical blast. It’s all really fun . This game is enjoyable and Sony has finally found a game that uses the SixAxis very well. Gather round the TV old school style and get ready to talk smack face to face.
Just when you thought it was safe to trade in your Wii, Nintendo pulls a rabbit out of its hat with the release of Punch-Out. I have been excited for an updated version of this game to come out for a long time and remember hoping that one would have come out on the GameCube. No luck (Although Super Punch-Out was unlockable on one of the Fight Night games). The day I bought the Wii I downloaded the Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out first thing. Until that, I was stuck blowing the dust out of my 8-bit cartridge for the longest time. I hope that it’s apparent by now that I love the Punch-Out series. Nintendo does not disappoint in this new iteration of a fan favorite. It’s everything I could have hoped for and more.

No, this isn't plinko, it's Peggle! As much as this game feels like it belongs on the Price is Right, this game actually will keep your attention for more than a hour.. It's very addictive game play will suck you in for a countless number of hours. Skilled puzzle players will find just enough challenge to keep them coming back for more, while unexperienced gamers return just for the fun of playing. I highly recommend this game for the entire family.. It's multiplayer supported so you can play against friends online or just kill some time in two very lengthy single Player modes: Adventure and Challenge. Graphically the game is colorful but nothing next gen, and the sound fits just nicely with each bounce of the pegs.. This one gets a 9/10 just based on it's highly addictive gameplay!
