    Baseball game looks good and the new Sonic game got decent reviews from what I've read.

    Last title is borderline shovelware I'd say though.

    Both Sonic (8/10) and We Ski & Snowboard (7/10) have good pretty good reviews so far.

    If anything I'd say that the Baseball is closer to shovelware, given that 2K have made minimal changes from the last game. Same graphics and no online = lazy.

    Sonic got a 3.9 from ign. Ouch. Matt reviewed it and loved the graphics and polish, but hated the gameplay. MLB 2K9 got a 6.4 from ign.

    We Ski and Snowboard has a 71 on metacritic so that's pretty good.

    I'm on the fence as well about this title. From my experience Sonic spin-off titles don't bode too well with my taste of games--save Sonic Spinball on the Genesis.

    Sonic and the Black Knight looks decent, which is surprising given the hedgehog's last adventure into the mythical realm (Secret Rings was ab-so-lute-ly TERRIBLE). I'll probably rent it, at the very least.

    The last one is now looking the least like shovelware.

    I'd still say Sonic looks the best. ign was overly harsh in their review of Sonic. IMO
