    Sure, the game is only around 10 or so hours long (I timed myself the first time through at 11:57:49), but it was the best damn 10 or so hours I've had in a game world in a while. Besides, if a game can keep you playing from start to finish no matter how hard you need to pee, the developers definitely did their job and did it well.

    This game is thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish, even when you are dying over and over. Like "Prince of Persia," it's that one time you actually make it all happen that has you forgetting how many times you hit retry.

    By far the best game compilation I’ve ever seen assembled. Games like Ghosts N’ Goblins, Final Fight, Commando, Mercs and Forgotten Worlds are well worth shelling out the cash for alone, then consider there are 17 other smashing displays of nostalgic arcadey goodness and its easy to see why this disc deserves a spot in your game collection.

    The game’s absolutely jaw-dropping dashboard camera view provides a level of racing immersion that hasn’t been matched by any other racing game I’ve ever played, and that combined with the stunning visuals does bring enough next-gen flair and innovation to the mix to separate it from any current racing title on the market.

    The AI, voice recognition (even with its occasional snags) and graphical technologies make it hard not to be impressed, and the overall sense of reward given for taking the time to really care for your dogs and raise them properly is certainly satisfying.

    It’s best to think of Hitman: Contracts as a mini game to keep fans of the series satisfied until a true sequel is released.

    Bandai and Ganbarion hit the nail on the head making this title mimic the One Piece anime, yet placed it into a genre that allowed them to add their own flavor to the series.

    An absolute must-have for any Silent Hill fan. Even though I would’ve loved to have seen more movie features, the digital comics, compilation soundtrack, movie trailer, video interviews and game trailers (yes, the trailers for each game in the series have been included as well) are totally worth throwing down 20 bucks for, no questions asked.

    If you're currently, or ever have been a fan of Konami’s Dance Dance line of games, DDR Extreme 2 is a must have title that will keep you dancing for many nights to come.

    EA Canada knew what they were doing with this title, and it has authenticity and entertainment written all over it. The revolutionary idea to add over 60 minor league teams is huge, and helps boost an already very robust Dynasty Mode.

    The extreme difficulty level will turn off most casual gamers and the camera system needs a little tweaking, but the environments are huge and varied and the combat system keeps things fresh. Ryu is one of the most impressive, easy to control and well designed characters to ever grace a videogame.

    Not only does it do the normal "look at the pretty graphics" common in other 360 games, but it also has excellent and engrossing gameplay to back it up.

    A shining testament to the fact that a game doesn't need to be flashy or genre-redefining as long as the gameplay and storyline are top of the line, which they indeed are in this game.

    The game starts out kind of like "The Twilight Zone" meets "CSI," but then it turns into The "X-Files" with some "Matrix" undertones.

    The game presents an epic storyline of knowledge and history, breathtaking music and ambiance, and a beautiful, photo-realistic world to explore steeped in a rich back-story of factual information from one of the earliest time periods in human civilization.

    What we have here is one of those "high concept", innovative story driven shooters like "The Chronicles of Riddick" or the criminally underrated "Breakdown" that works perfectly as not only a video game, but a thrilling trip to a wonderfully fleshed out visual world that's an absolute knockout to run around and do things in.

    With up to 16 player games on 22 playable maps in 5 different mission types, SOCOM 2 puts even the heftiest of other multi-players to shame.

    Whereas Metal Gear Acid faltered slightly in its attempt to branch the MGS franchise out into a bold new direction, Acid 2 absolutely nails the concept with engaging turn-based strategy gameplay, a refined interface, quicker pacing, stylized graphics and an abundance of replay value, among other noteworthy attributes.

    Xpand Rally shows off a love for the sport that borders on obsessive, yet the game is truly accessible to any motor sports fan.

    One of the best and most refreshing console RPGs to come out in years, and is definitely a worthy candidate for RPG of the year.

    Video game pinball doesn’t get any better than what Nintendo and Fuse Games have put together in Metroid Prime Pinball.
