The Bureau: XCOM Declassified - Xbox 360

An awesome concept, interesting setting and use of contrast can’t save The Bureau from technical shortcomings.

I play a lot of shooters and love sci-fi so this game was right up my alley. The combat mechanics is heavily influenced by the first Mass Effect game, which to me is only a positive thing. Being a shooter and not an RTS 'The Bureau' is somewhat more linear than 'Enemy Unknown'. However there's a nice variety of combat settings and the gameplay is a lot of fun if you like something a bit more tactical than your average TPS. It also has some RPG elements in the way you can level-up your team.

"I think I would have more fun spelling dirty words on a calculator. For example enter 58008 or 1134, and rotate your calculator 180 degrees. Good times." - wildbill

 The Legend of Zelda: Collector's Edition - Nintendo GameCube
"This was a great freebie that came with as a pack-in title, for the Gamecube, later in the system's lifespan. And as far as pack-ins go, this is a pretty great one!" - sherberttcat

 The Legend of Zelda: Collector's Edition - Nintendo GameCube
"As mentioned by nintendoboy17, Majora's Mask is emulated quite poorly here, and it is extremely prone to freezing, which is a shame considering what a spectacular game it is. Everything else about the collection is great though; all of the other games are emulated well. However I still would've liked to have had more, like maybe interviews with the game designers. Something extra like that would have put this anthology over the top." - Smash Bros Maestro

 Taito Legends 2 - PlayStation 2
"While some of the games in this collection are bad, and LAUGHABLY bad at that, there are also a lot of gems that I really enjoyed, such as Darius Gaiden, G-Darius, Qix, and especially Super Space Invaders 91, among others. It's an affordable collection these days, so if you're interested, I say check it out." - Smash Bros Maestro

 Sears Electronic Numbers Game - Crappy Handhelds
"Remember this game the next time you think a Tiger handheld is too primitive." - Mipaol
