MERCURY HG X360/PS3
The venerable puzzle game returns for one more bite of the cherry, albeit not a particularly fresh one. Still, the underlying premise (tilt the landscape to move a blob of mercury to the exit) has served many games well, back to its original inspiration, Marble Madness. And as a cheap download from the Xbox/PSN store, Mercury Hg has enough nostalgic charm and varied levels to make it worth investigation.
RAVING RABBIDS: ALIVE AND KICKING X360
When it works, it makes for a hilarious party game (eg, everyone dance like a loon until the Rabbids notice you, then hide behind furniture until they lose interest). When it doesn't, you end up in a frustrating battle with Kinect's limitations.
Happily, there are more of the former than the latter.
