    The unique features this game has, like the spectacular physics and item creation system, push it past the run-of-the-mill shooters into a category just under the truly elite.

    The visuals in this game are simply stunning, and anyone who ever complained about Nintendo's taking this direction with the title likely shut their mouth promptly upon seeing them it in motion.

    I'll simply say you NEED this game if you're an Xbox owner. From creating your own team logo and tweaking your bike in the Workshop, to just hitting Time Trial and going for the best ride of your life, there's a few weeks of solid gameplay packed onto this shiny disc.

    A total smash from start to finish, and a damn great PSP game that deserves to be even bigger than its console big brother.

    A fantastic PSP game that brings back memories of camping out on the couch for hours on end with some of my favorite console RPGs.

    If you don’t own an Xbox or never got around to picking up the original Fable, do yourself a tremendous favor and buy Fable: The Lost Chapters immediately.

    Great character art and solid plot aside, it’s really all about the gameplay and SRPGs don’t get much better than this.

    It’s really hard to knock a game no matter what the genre if it’s done well, and Pool Paradise is really done well, and an instant classic. If you’re into pool it’s a must-purchase, hands down.

    I’m in awe of any developer that can create and sustain a mood of unease and sheer terror, and this game nails both to a T.

    Ape Escape 3 works simply and beautifully because it’s just a well-made game that’s funny as hell when it needs to be and bizarre the rest of the time.

    While Samanosuke’s sword play is second to none and impressive in itself, Jacques’ energy whip is where the real fun is at. Jacques has the ability to grab his enemies, throw them around and even use his pistol in between to keep the combo rolling.

    A prime example of excellence for the genre with its purely stunning art direction and graphic design, epic soundtrack, and both accessible and challenging strategy-oriented gameplay.

    The only severe flaw holding Battalion Wars back from the truly elite is its serious lack of content. Everything the game has to offer is strictly tied to the campaign, which only lasts about five hours in total clock time.

    If you’re patient and relish a good challenge, hear the call of the Siren, open your mind and prepare to be utterly terrified.

    The main problem I had here in Two Thrones was, amazingly and sadly enough, the environments! In a franchise that held a high standard for level design, Two Thrones features bland and drab colors that are just uninteresting in so many ways.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    But you’re really missing the point if you pick apart every negative thing here without seeing the big picture the developers intended. There’s enough tension and thrills here to beat any Hollywood action movie you’ll see hands down.

    Only the best of the best will see the final missions in Sniper Elite mode, but for the rest of us, Rebellion has created a remarkable, beautifully brutal WWII game that's smarter than the usual fodder lining game store shelves.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    The game's controls are simplistic and some of the tightest out there.
    • 90 Metascore

    Criterion has yet again pieced together another piece of fantastic software that pushes the limits of the current-gen consoles in every department possible. However, for some reason or another, it just doesn’t feel as exciting and visceral as "Burnout 3" did.

    A complete blast whether you play with a ton of friends or go at it in solo play. You’ll definitely want to get some stretching done beforehand, as the workout here is much more vigorous than the original.

    Same killer and addictive online gameplay you'd expect from Battlefield.

    The best wrestling game on the market, period, exclamation point.

    It has its share of quirks that do frustrate from time to time, mainly early on, but in the end the sheer charm, originality and fun-factor Chibi-Robo exudes is uplifting enough to easily earn the game my stamp of approval.

    Eerie, deeply disturbing and wonderfully designed for maximum emotional effectiveness, the game has a way of getting under your skin and taking root, drawing on your own fears and putting forth leaves and fruit that amplify the experience.

    The realistic and methodical pace to the gameplay will likely put off twitch gamers craving the next Unreal Tournament, but anyone who enjoys a good, tension-packed tactical shooter will get their money’s worth and more in this game.

    Two Thrones caps off the greatest gaming trilogy quite possibly ever released in grand fashion, and it will surely keep us busy until Ubisoft decides whether to carry the PoP label over to the next-generation.
