The musically themed Japanese role-playing game Eternal Sonata
strikes some pleasing notes with its excellent anime design, enjoyable music, unique combat system, and remarkably cheerful aesthetic. Unfortunately, the melody goes flat through lackluster story presentation, sluggish dialogue, and repetitive battles and dungeon layouts.

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
is an outstanding rollercoaster ride of a first-person shooter that crams so much action into its roughly six-hour playtime that it manages to feel just as grand as games two or three times its length.
