Chances are pretty good that the kids have completed or are getting bored playing the games they received over the holidays. So it's a good thing that the game makers have so many great options for us in stores this week.

Here is a look at our favorite games coming out this week.

Unlike the other Halo games, Halo Wars is not a first-person shooter. It's a strategy based game in which you build bases, lead armies and battle foes with a bird's eye view of the action.
