Need some advice.

I won a $25 gift certificate in a contest I participated in and was wondering a little over what to spend them on.

I have heard a little about the game pandemonium by Electronic Arts.

my question: is it worth the money and it is a good game?

It is an average platformer that has a feel to it that makes it seem better than it actually is. The game was only mildly successful on the Playstation. I would only suggest you spend $5 on it if you are really into platformers. It is not a bad game but not a fantastic one.

Agreed. Only if you're a platform nut and don't have Castle of Magic already.

Are you looking at other platformers at all? There are a number that may be more to your liking (e.g. Castle of Magic, Archibald's Adventures, Brave Dwarves). I mean Pandemonium is decent, but it won't curb your craving.

im looking for some good games to buy and includes all platforms but what i really is looking for is a good shooter/tank game.

i recently watched a video of a 3d game where you are a cannon turrent on some islands firing at other turrents that when you destroy 1 of them 2 respawns.

what is it called and is it out yet?

Don't know about that one, but do you have Vector Tanks? If you're old enough to remember Battlezone, it's basically a clone of that with a cool control mechanism.

I don't remember the name of the game but it hasn't been released yet. It is however made by the same developer who made Tankz which is a good tank game. A major update is in the works to add more content and levels.

Also, another one to consider is T.A.N.K. Battle Arena where tanks battle each other one-on-one. Also very good, and you can unlock additional weapons.
