Facing an old nemesis isn't a battle of guns--it's a battle of wits. There was a time when the King of the Cosmos was a colorful personality, larger than life. Perhaps his fame had something to do with a jaunt in the sky that temporarily left Earth with no stars, or maybe people just loved his absurd overreliance on the royal "we." Whatever the case, the peculiarly clothed king was anything but forgettable. According to Touch Bhaja Govindam Vishnu Sahasranamam Ms Subbulakshmi Katamari's story, game enthusiasts have changed in the years that have passed since Katamari Damacy arrived on the PlayStation 2. Many of them no longer look at the series or its monarch as anything particularly special. In a horrifying twist, one father can't even decide for his son whether the enormous monarch is more amazing than the boy's school principal. Attempts to inject variety are appreciated, though they don't resonate enough to overshadow the sameness in other areas. In certain levels, speed is your guiding force. A towering beast slowly chases after you, so you sprint through levels pell-mell to escape his monstrous wrath. There is some thrill in burning enemies while you sprint past, or deftly jumping over spiked pits by drawing platforms in midair to keep you safe, but the levels play out so similarly that the initial appeal fades away. In other stages, hordes of enemies flood the screen and you have to survive for one minute. The added difficulty in these stages keeps you fully engaged, but you can rely on the same techniques ad nauseam to come out on top. In addition to online matches, which are mostly lag-free this time around, created fighters can be used in custom tournaments against both friends and AI opponents and in the returning Title and Title Defense modes. Title mode is set up much like a traditional fighting game, in that you simply complete a number of fights until you're declared the champion. You can get away with losing up to three times as you battle your way to the top, but any more than that and you have to restart. Playing through Title mode is a great way to familiarize yourself with pro fighters from the roster of over 100, and completing it unlocks the challenging, time-consuming Title Defense mode for play with the fighter that you were using. Tight controls add to the natural feel of the game, letting you concentrate on winning matches, rather than worrying about which button to press. The lack of triggers on the Vita means some commands have had to be remapped, but thankfully, it has been sensibly done. The same can't be said of the touch controls, which replicate the functions of the traditional controls, and are often more of a hindrance than a help. If you're on the ball, you can tap on a player to pass to him, with longer taps adding more power to the pass; when you're off the ball, tapping on a player switches control to him. It's a simple system, but having to take your hands off the analogue stick or face buttons to do these things feels awkward. Get three of your friends together, though, and you'll have a lot more fun. Any song can be played with up to four players, and there are specific songs that have been designed with more dancers in mind. These include a bouncy duet to Girls Aloud's "Jump" and a rock-and-roll duet to Queen's "Crazy Little Thing Called Love." It's the four-player dances that are the most fun, though, with choreography that's clearly designed to cause as much embarrassment for the participants as possible. Highlights include the Power Rangers-inspired "Spectronizer," complete with multiple superhero poses, and Kiss' "I Was

you might consider trading it for a Medal of Honor: Allied Assault CD. Crash may be a silent protagonist, but his actions speak up louder than he could ever do... Meanwhile, the other characters' dialogs are not vital for the storyline, although they're funny enough to make you watch the cutscenes (which can't be skipped anyway, if I'm not mistaking). The background music is decent, not surprising in any way, while the number of lines that the foes use is impressive. You'll hear the minions saying the same thing twice rarely and that's a good thing, specially for an action-adventure/platforming game that tends to plague gamers with audio and video content redundancy. Enlarge picture I've never heard so much "spartan" talk in my entire life! 2007 is surely the year when the most famous Greek society was featured in most historic movies and videogames. It all started with the famous "300" movie and its mighty Spartans, followed by the acclaimed "God of War II" and ? Halo 3. In case you might be wondering what the connection between Sparta and Halo is, you'll probably want to know that Master Chief is part of a military unit called Spartans? To end this Spartan year, here comes the long awaited God of War: Bhaja Govindam Vishnu Sahasranamam Ms Subbulakshmi of Olympus, but only in its demo version, for now. At my first play I messed around with the options menu in order to speed things up and there is a fast gameplay option, that really makes fighters move faster, but still, you'll be frustrated by the length of the battles. Even if it's a timed battle, sometimes it just takes two or three combos to finish an enemy, while in some fights you'll be countering the whole time and parrying and waiting for a chance to deliver some killer blows. The character roster is huge including the Bhaja Govindam Vishnu Sahasranamam Ms Subbulakshmi Team, the Agent Team, the Rival Team, the Fatal Fury Team, the Art of Fighting Team, the K' Team and many many more. Being a third person shooter or a third person beat'em up to be more precise, The Bourne Conspiracy had to differentiate itself from other similar titles and the only way to achieve that was to get the same camera angles as the last two movies. Some have praised Paul Greengrass' unusual directing method and I'm sure some gamers won't enjoy the constant
