How have these forerunners held up over the years? Make sure you read our review to find out if this collection should make it into a loved one's gift pile¦ or onto your wish list.

Surveys suggest that nearly half of all parents in the U.S. will be giving some sort of video game related product to their children this year for Christmas. If you want to be a part of that, but want to keep a little money in the wallet, it's always a good idea to pay attention to titles that don't cost an arm and a leg. I of the Enemy, starting at $19.95, might be just the RTS you're looking for.
It's so easy to pass by those pesky movie based titles. How often are they any good, really? Most of the time, games based on movies miss the charm or the magic or whatever it was that made the movie good, and serve up nothing but a laundry list of formulaic gameplay. But not always. Read why T3: Redemption isn't just another movie game on rails¦ well¦ almost. Check out the full review.

As if there could be anything worse than Bad Boys II, Crave Games has done the dirty, dirty deed of releasing Bad Boys: Miami Takedown. Featuring cruddy graphics and a bad Will Smith impersonator, this is one action adventure game that ain't getting no play from us.
