Specs: Everyone, Action, Puzzle

Specs: Teen, Bandai, Sports, Wrestling, 1-2 Players
The Bottom Line: Gundam Battle Assault isn't a good enough game to live on its own - the fighting is competent, but hardly compelling for any length of time, and the story mode is completely uninteresting. Read review
Specs: Teen, Natsume, Action, 1-2 Players
The Bottom Line: While Digimon Card Battle accurately duplicates the flow and gameplay of the tabletop game, its simplicity will turn off any but the youngest of players. Read review
Specs: Teen, Bandai, Strategy, 1-2 Players
The Bottom Line: Mobile Suit Gundam: Gundam vs. Zeta Gundam doesn't do anything to broaden the reach of the franchise, but it gives fans exactly what they want--and plenty of it. Read review

Specs: Everyone, Bec, Role-Playing, 1-2 Players
Specs: Teen, Eighting, Action

Specs: Teen, Ganbarion, Action, 1-2 Players
The Bottom Line: Digimon World 4 is a dull and largely forgettable experience, which, considering the quality of the previous three Digimon World games, really shouldn't be too big of a surprise to anyone. Read review
Specs: Everyone, Bandai, Role-Playing, Action - adventure, Strategy / tactics / wargame - wargame, Fantasy, 1-4 Players
The Bottom Line: Sluggish controls and lifeless gameplay make Ghost in the Shell worth playing only for loyal fans of the anime, and even then it isn't worth more than a rental. Read review
Specs: Teen, G-Artists, Action, 1-6 Players
The Bottom Line: Mobile Suit Gundam is enjoyable despite its flaws, and it offers those who have never seen the original television series or its movie adaptation a condensed version of a classic part of anime history. Read review
Specs: Teen, Bandai, Action, Mech Sim, Sci-Fi, 1 Player
The Bottom Line: MS Saga looks and feels dated, but it makes good use of the license and manages to deliver a decent--if unremarkable--role-playing experience. Read review
Specs: Everyone 10 and older, Bec, Role-Playing, 1 Player
The Bottom Line: Though it divulges a few more bits of storyline, Outbreak's gameplay is simple and repetitive to the extreme, just like its predecessors. Read review
Specs: Teen, CyberConnect2, Role-Playing, Console-style RPG, 1 Player
The Bottom Line: Digimon World isn't for everyone - only dedicated Digimon fans or fans of the monster-raising genre need apply. Read review

Specs: Everyone, Bandai, Action, 2D Fighting, 1-2 Players
Specs: Everyone, Griptonite Games, Driving, Arcade Racing, 1-4 Players
