    Latin Bummer - Just Cause features acres and acres of . . . foliage.

    Cold as Ice - NHL 2K7 looks pretty, but fails to light the lamp.

    Ice hockey isn't for the weak of heart. It's a bruising, fast-paced game, featuring large sticks, razor-sharp blades, and far too many angry Canadians. Of course, hockey's scrappy style is exactly why people love the blue-collar sport. For chrissak...
