    Offers a lot of content, much more so than what was available in "Road to Rome." The fact that it comes bundled with the v1.45 patch means that players will be treated to a slightly improved physics model, more player animation and better sounds, as well as numerous bug fixes and other minor tweaks.

    Yet another noteworthy addition to the Command and Conquer license. With enough content to entangle you into an exciting single-player campaign and a satisfying multiplayer experience, C&C 3 is a strategy game I'd advise you all to pick up.

    Gorgeous, polished, clever and exciting.

    From the great single player campaign the wide variety of multiplayer options, you should find every dollar you spend on this game well worth it, and then some. This is the best Rainbow Six game ever made.

    The AI, unlike many recent releases, works very well and is extremely persistent in tearing Isaac's body to shreds before letting him to escape. It's solid a challenge altogether, throwing a few interesting boss fights into the mix as well.

    If we look past the minor bugs, the combat feels intense and the controls feel perfectly natural. The Chronicles of Riddick just feels right on the PC and it's as if this was a PC game from the get-go.

    Bottom line, with the introduction of the Death Knight, Blizzard has done a great job of adding another element of fun in the game.

    Take notes, Obsidian. This is how stuff should be done.

    The game's hardware requirements are high. Really. Take the Recommended settings, add 256MB of RAM and 500Mhz of CPU, and that's what I'd say is the Minimum hardware requirement for this game...Will a few technical issues keep you away from what is the best MMO on the market this holiday season?

    An acquired taste. It is the best of its kind but it still takes a certain mindset to fully enjoy (read: patient people). If you're a twitch shooter and think stealth is for sissies, you might want to rethink any decision to buy this game.

    Merging the best of the historical strategies of Civilization and Empire Earth with the dynamics and appeal of the Age of Empires and C&C, giving this RTS the level of detail reserved for turn-based strategies and simulations. And the best thing is - this really works!

    A feast for the eyes and mind, Earth & Beyond is both an excellent game and a perfect example of what an MMORPG should be.

    Halo: Reach is a well-designed and intricate shooter experience; one of the best on the gaming scene today.

    The game feels real enough that you might want to sneak up on a cop on a late Saturday night after playing for a few hours.

    Annoyances aside, this is the game for anyone itching for something that not only refuses to be taken seriously, it embraces its ridiculosity with open arms.

    It looks better than the original, it plays better than the original, it has a lengthy single-player campaign, a lot of scary moments, non-stop action and, on top of that, an engaging brand new multiplayer mode. So, what more do you want?

    Currently the best biker game out there, defiantly deserving a place in your collection, but ONLY if you don't already have a copy of "Superbike 2000."

    Ghost Master turned out to be a successful mixture of various genres, which establishes excellent gameplay mechanics and presents an extremely challenging experience.

    While Battlefield 2 doesn't make any huge leaps over its predecessor, it is a very, very good game, and the more you play it, the more you'll notice how good it is. DICE Sweden knows their stuff.

    Despite an outstanding multiplayer ride, we still encountered problems - not to mention, the recent EA server issues, problems with lag and other technical mishaps. Mind you, all of that still won't stop you from recognizing what's probably one of the best shooters on the current PC and (from what I'm told) the console market.

    Just an extremely satisfying game, even with its occasional glitches. If you're into dynamic combat and constant chaotic over-the-top action, Dmc is the game to buy. It's a shame they didn't make the story longer, since it won't take an average gamer more than 6-7 hours to finish it on normal difficulty.

    A complete game. It looks good and it plays great. A few AI drawbacks aside, this is hands down the best basketball simulation on the market.

    This title restored our faith in the genre and it rises high above the competition. Capcom deserves credit for this one. It's been a long time since we felt this kind of vibe and the best part is, it's a good slice of gaming even for those who are unfamiliar with previous releases.

    It's insanely difficult, incredibly unfair and frustrating at times, but we still love it. It takes you on a journey of death, valor and persistence, but it rewards you handsomely in the process.

    A quality port that adds more content as well as perfects the existing gameplay. Every single fan of great storytelling and compelling single-player fantasy RPGs should own this one.

    While not exactly as breathtaking as "Half-Life 2," Prey can rightfully be called one of the best, if not *the* best FPS game of the year so far.

    The amount of additional features, characters, and units, is so impressive we don't have the space to get into the details. Suffice it to say, Age of Wonders: Shadow Magic displays a commendable variety of content that brought the franchise to new heights and effectively improved upon the excellent gameplay of the previous title.

    All in all Ground Control is a very good 3D real-time strategy, one of the best in the genre, and it deserves a good ride.

    A solid title from the ground up. It has a nicely written story, with lively characters and a charismatic and sexy protagonist in Lara Croft. It has great voice acting and music, and the artists have done a marvelous job of creating beautiful and diverse locations for the game's backdrop.

    The pre-rendered backgrounds...are rich in detail and create a perfect setting for the game. I don't think the entire game contains a pixel in a wrong place.
