    A well-balanced amalgamation of RTS and RPG ingredients, set in a unique universe. If you're prepared to shell out 40 bucks for this one, you should know that the game is worth every dime, featuring plenty of content and solid replay value.

    Even if you completely ignore the missions, you can still have a lot of fun just playing with the environment. See who can make the biggest stack of cars. Race to the top the agency building. Try to jump the farthest in your diesel truck.

    Pro Evolution Soccer still beats FIFA hands down. It may not be able to compete in terms of next-gen polish, but this is a case of matter over style. In terms of evolution, the new game might not be so pro, but it still offers a more rewarding football experience.

    The best bit is that you can experience the whole story again through the eyes of a completely different character, thus unwrapping further details about the plot. This kind of storytelling is not found too often and it was certainly a pleasure to undertake.

    It's got a surprising amount of depth and innovation in a lot of different areas of design, excellent humor, art work and sound.

    The addition of dark powers broadens the depth of the game and blends perfectly with the storyline.

    A very entertaining and challenging game that tells a good story.

    Weak writing, the retro look and other flaws of King's Bounty shouldn't stop you from trying the game out. There's a beautifully presented fantasy world just waiting to be discovered, along with a long single-player game crammed with enough content to guarantee a lot of hours of good clean fun.

    There are several things that make Halo 3: ODST a winning combination. The story presentation and characterization clearly evolved beyond what we're used to witnessing in prior Halo games.

    Every hour we've spent playing this game (be it offline co-op or solo play) was tremendously fun.

    Crysis 2 seems different from other shooters on the market thanks to its unique atmosphere, the impressively directed action scenes, the freedom to tackle each combat situation in a unique way and, of course, the Nanosuit.

    A slightly better and more enjoyable experience than DiRT 2, which is more than enough to warrant a purchase.

    The AI puts up a decent fight in every mission.

    Crisp PC graphics make the game a visual marvel and there are some truly gorgeous and memorable moments in the game.

    It’s a thoroughly entertaining game that provides a healthy mix of action and stealth.

    The single-player story (with a few caveats), the co-op mode Extinction and the multiplayer that will have you staying up late into the morning hours for months to come all balance well with each other and act as a testament that Infinity Ward has truly delivered a title worthy of the Call of Duty games of old.

    Forget working on my backlog this next month or so; I’m going to soak in as much inFAMOUS as I can.

    The voice acting and the musical score is top-notch and that it should help you greatly to get in the Trek spirit. The graphics on the other hand are a mixed bag of blessings.

    Etherlords and its 3D fantasy world are capable of holding players glued to the screen for hours.
    • 81 Metascore

    May not be as involving and complex as the Microsoft’s classic "Rise of Nations" or Creative Assembly’s epic "Shogun: Total War," but it does blend many different gameplay elements that make it an exciting RTS experience. Visually breathtaking scenes coupled with intriguing scenarios and a well-structured storyline should be enough to satisfy any RTS fan.

    The multiplayer has one great option -- players can choose any nation from any period of human history, which means you can try out German plains from WW II and employ them against fierce Russian futuristic tanks.

    Vibrant, sharp, and pretty are just a few adjectives that may sum up my final thoughts on the game's sound and appearance… And it all goes perfectly well with the offbeat nature of the game -- the edgy attitude, and the genuinely funny Pythonesque dialogue.

    Beautiful visuals are accompanied by an amazingly atmospheric soundtrack, which perfectly blends with the furious style of rally racing.

    The reason I finished it so quickly was because the story was fairly well put together and the gameplay was a good mix of styles - several run-'n'-gun levels where you run full bore, guns blazing, and 2 very interesting missions involving stealth.

    A great arcade platformer, which is still a rarity on PC, excellent atmosphere, low frustration level, humor, and did I mention the game has reasonable price tag of $19.99...

    Visually, the Commandos universe seems more atmospheric and immersive than ever before, and the addition of multiplayer increases the game's replay value.

    It's hampered with a number of issues that originally wouldn't have existed if only the game was designed with the PC in mind. But even as it is, Deus Ex: Invisible War is an intelligent, mature and engrossing project that deserves the attention of every self-respecting shooter/adventure game fan out there.

    In all, the pros of Final Fantasy XI greatly outweigh the cons. The graphics, job and skill system, as well as the overall polish make it an enjoyable experience.

    Economy and warfare are well balanced and equally exciting. The gameplay is fantastic, and it will require you to think strategically in stead of just massing up units.

    Bloodmoon possesses several new and intriguing elements that include diverse new items, weaponry, indoor and outdoor environments, monsters, etc... True fans shouldn't miss it.
