After years of playing second fiddle, music-based gaming finally reached the forefront with the release of 2005’s Guitar Hero
. Now comes Boogie
, a game that combines well-known licensed dance hits and hip-hop music—from The Jackson Five to Britney Spears—with onscreen dancing and karaoke gameplay. The result is a strange and misguided attempt to do for singing and dancing what Guitar Hero did for guitar playing.
Game Description: Meet the Boogs. Get ready to join in and sing-in with some of the latest and greatest hits in this unique game with built-in karaoke functions. Fun mini-games, co-op gameplay, head-to-head dance battles and karaoke party make Boogie the perfect party game and a complete entertainment package for gamers of all ages. Players dance, sing and create music videos with this ultimate videogame party package that takes advantage of the innovative Wii controls getting gamers off their couch and playing to a new beat. Not only will gamers be belting out their favorite tunes or dancing to the latest hit songs, players will catch their best dance moves, record their own voice and make music videos with the easy-to-use music video creator.

I wonder how different this review would have been if I had played Medal of Honor: Vanguard
before trying the demo for Medal of Honor: Airborne
. While it's true that almost no game looks good when placed next to its immediate successor, I feel that the things that Vanguard
gets wrong are so clearly and fundamentally awful that even if I hadn't played the wonderful Airborne
demo I'd still have realized just what an atrocious waste of time Vanguard
Game Description: Medal of Honor: Vanguard lets you return to the days of the Second World War, for more of its pioneering first-person shooter action. Join the ranks of the elite 82nd Airborne Division as Corporal Frank Keegan. You'll guide him through some of WWII's deadliest operations—dropping behind enemy lines, sometimes right on top of entrenched Axis positions. Work with America's first paratroopers on heroic missions, from Operation Husky in Sicily to Operation Varsity inside Nazi Germany. Medal of Honor: Vanguard makes you the driving force in the struggle to liberate Europe.

It's a crutch, when reviewing videogames that belong to a series, to simply compare one game to the next. Reviews of that type are often extremely formulaic—the graphics have improved, and the controls are tighter, but the story isn't as good... etc... It's a boring review to read, kind of a dull one to write.

I can't imagine it's an especially easy task, making a Superman-themed game. There's never been a great Superman game, though, so without any ideas to appropriate, each and every time a new Superman game is crafted the developers are starting from scratch, with a daunting task ahead of them.
