There are lots of review sites, but I find “Gamerankings.com”:http://gamerankings.com to be the best meta site, they categorize reviews done by a host of sites and magazines are pretty accurate. Like “DCViews”:http://dcviews.com, these metasites are just great. So, what’s hot right now for kids?
* “Company of Heroes”: OK, not really for kids, but it is getting amazingly high ratings as a combination squad tactical game and sort of FPS.
* “LEGO Star Wars II”:http://www.gamerankings.com/htmlpages2/931978.asp . Who would have thought that a game like this would be fun, but the kids love it because it is so abstract.
In terms of actually buying the games, I use three soures:
* “Pricegrabber”:http://www.pricegrabber.com/p__LucasArts_LEGO_Star_Wars_II,__25915061/sort_type=bottomline to find online stores
* “Mpire”: to look at ebay, yahoo and other stores
