With money as tight as it’s ever been during any holiday season in recent memory, it’s more important than ever to spend your gift dollars wisely.

With that in mind, Examiner.com, a popular news and review Web site, has surveyed this fall’s new computer game releases and offers its caveats about five titles which — in the estimation of reviewer Kenneth Wesley — don’t live up to their makers’ hype.

In all fairness, Wesley does offer pros and cons for each game. But what we found most useful was his suggestion for an alternative title to each game reviewed, chosen to appeal to the same gaming tastes as the not-so-hot new release.

If there’s a new computer game on your list this season, you’ll be glad you scanned this site before committing your cash!
