NCAA Football 11 is the latest and, if I must say, the greatest installment in this long-running series. There is not a single aspect of this game that is surpassed by the versions that came before it. First, the Dynasty Mode is much improved. It is divided into three parts: Off-season, the season itself, and after season. During the off-season, you can recruit new talent, convince players to come back, and much more. Now, the actual season is much like all others: You play the games and try to come out of it with a run at the national title. This also holds true for after the season, when you sign new coaches. Although these modes are similar to those in previous games, they are much more in-depth, which ultimately makes the game more fun.

Puzzle Quest 2 is a fun little arcade-like game, changed perfectly so that it becomes a great DS game!

You start the game making your hero; you can select such battle classes as: Barbarian, Assassin, or Sorcerer. Once you select a class, you have to name your hero, and choose the gender. Once that’s all settled, you go into quest or mini-game mode...

Get ready for an adventure, matey! Pirates Plunder is a great game in which you are a pirate (with up to 3 friends) pursuing the traitor known as Rudebelly. You go through 45 different levels in which Rudebelly throws his skeleton and zombie troops as well as slug bosses your way. Along the ride, you can use the experience points you earn in each level to upgrade your pirate's weapons and attributes to take on Rudebelly. Once you make him walk the plank, you can take back the treasure that is rightfully yours!

Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4 is hands down the best Lego game created to date. Those familiar with Lego games would expect to find a pretty good game that mostly caters to younger audiences. But not this one!  Although it is not super hard,  the game does provide a challenge. I had a tough time with certain parts.

The length of the game is very good, and it is quite amazing to experience the depth that Lego Harry Potter gets into. The world of Harry Potter is evident in every aspect of this game. For example, in Diagon Alley, you can replay levels and buy new characters. Plus, during the main levels, you can take a class to learn a new spell or create a new potion to make a character stronger.

City Builder for the Nintendo Wii is a game in which you have to lay pieces
of road over a playfield grid. The object of the game is to connect the
starting point to the end point. After a while, a car will start driving on
the road and you must finish building the road before the car gets to the
end. You have a selection of five pieces that you can use, and can shuffle
for new ones if you can’t find a good part. Just be careful not to shuffle
too much because you may lose the piece you were looking for. This game is
pretty similar to the popular SimCity series...

I would give Spilt/Second 9 out of 10 stars. There are a variety of unique race types such as Elimination Mode and Air Strike Mode that keep you interested in the game. The use of “power plays” to create explosions and crashes creates the on edge and very exciting experience that many gamers are looking for. The power plays create an environment that is very confusing but is also very cool and makes the game very fun.
