    Ben 10 Ultimate Alien: Cosmic Destruction

    Ben 10 Ultimate Alien: Cosmic Destruction is based on the most recent season of the hugely popular Ben 10 series on Cartoon Network.

  • Karaoke Revolution Glee

    Karaoke Revolution Glee

    Karaoke Revolution Glee is a Karaoke-style game that features the songs from the first season of the popular TV show, Glee. You have to sing the songs as you would at a typical Karaoke event—follow the words to the song on a screen—but unlike Karaoke, your performance is scored. Scoring is done through voice recognition technology, which recognizes vocal pitch and rhythm.

  • PlayStation Move

    PlayStation Move

    PlayStation Move is the new motion-sensing control system for the PlayStation 3. In simplest terms, it is PlayStation’s version of Nintendo’s Wii. Like the Wii, Move uses a hand-held, wireless controller to enable you to interact with the game console and play games.

  • Just Dance Kids & Just Dance 2

    Just Dance Kids & Just Dance 2

    You don’t need the latest camera-capturing device to turn your living room into a dance party. All you need is a Wii and Just Dance Kids or Just Dance 2 to get the party started. Both games from Ubisoft feature a collection of more than 40 songs, each with on-screen dance instructions that you have to perform and master.

  • Tony Hawk: Shred

    Tony Hawk: Shred

    Tony Hawk is undeniably the most famous professional skateboarder around. He has parlayed his talent on a skateboard into a successful brand with a series of skateboarding games as its cornerstone. My first skateboard was a Tony Hawk board, so it’s only fitting that the first skateboard game I review is a Tony Hawk game. Tony Hawk Shred is the latest game in the Tony Hawk series from Activision and uses a wireless skateboard controller to recreate the experience of riding a skateboard. The skateboard controller looks like a skateboard without the wheels and the game is played through movements on the board that…

    Wii Party

    Wii Party is Nintendo’s latest party game and it is the perfect video game for everyone in your family to play together. It is a collection of games that range from board game-style party games for up to four players to couples games that are designed for two players. There is also a third category of games called House Party games, that use the room you are playing in to take the party off of the TV and into your house. In House Party, you might be playing a game of hot potato or searching the room for hidden Wii-Remotes.

  • Babysitting Mama

    Babysitting Mama

    Video game controllers come in many shapes and sizes, think of the drum set for Rock Band, but none are as cute as the plush baby doll controller that comes with the new babysitting Mama game. Babysitting Mama is the latest Majesco Mama game and this time, everyone’s favorite bandanna-wearing taskmaster is charged with taking care of a bunch of babies. Mama needs your help with those babies and you will play the game using the plush doll as a controller. The doll has a compartment in the back for you to tuck your Wii Remote into, turning the doll itself into the controller for the game. When the remote is…
