    A phenomenal game of basketball, handheld or otherwise, that I’ve found myself coming back to over and over again for hours upon end.

    It may not take full advantage of the DS’s unique hardware functions, however the outstanding level of quality in gameplay, graphics and audio make for a sublime and addictive portable-shooter experience that’s too good to pass up.

    For twenty bucks you get a deep and challenging fighter with fantastic high-resolution graphics, 26 characters, and 9 gameplay modes including solid Xbox Live play that supports Voice Chat, Friends, and weekly ranking scoreboards. This is easily one of the best game deals on any console, period.

    Seeing and playing this game makes me absolutely drool over the prospect of Incognito reviving other classics like "Warhawk," "Downhill Domination" and "War of the Monsters" on the PSP.

    While some might find their titles to be a little outdated graphically and not as overdrawn as some of the other RPGs that we see, Makai Kingdom does enough to make it stand on its own two feet with no problem.

    Whereas Dr. Mario is a bit more simplistic and easy to jump in and out of for quick portable sessions, the slightly deeper Puzzle League overshadows Dr. Mario's lasting appeal with its greater variety of game modes, play options and presentation elements.

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

    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.

    The graphics really make the high speed races seem incredibly fast and besides the few hiccups I ran across, they even hold up in online mode as well.

    Even with the redundant missions and laughable voice-overs, the good easily out weighs the bad and after playing Spider-Man 2 rigorously for three days straight, with only about two hours sleep in between, I'd have to say it's the best superhero game I've ever played.

    Everything in Ties That Bind creates a solid experience that still scares the ever-loving crap s*** out of us all in the office.

    One of the top sleeper hits of the entire year. This game is so finely constructed, minus the lackluster story, voice acting and frame rates quirks, that it really shouldn’t even be a sleeper.

    Grabs you by the funny bone and tender parts and body slams your senses right from the start, and if you just don't love that little guy the first time you lay eyes on him, you're just too jaded.

    Put a few hours into this and you’ll be dreaming of diminutive dragons and blissfully bursting bubbles when you finally get some sleep.

    Had the comedy not fallen so flat and completely undermined what is otherwise a great story to follow, I seriously would have considered this as a personal RPG of the Year contender for last year seeing that the gameplay is just as fun as any RPG that came out in 2004.

    This title brings back all the memories of Marble Madness, but with countless alterations and improvements. There are a few things I wish could be improved, such as the camera and music, but these shouldn’t prevent you from spending the $10 for all the content this game provides.

    Demon Stone just happens to be in a more frantic, third-person mode, yet the same immersion is multiplied ten or twenty fold. You’d have to be pretty jaded to dismiss this game without giving respect to Stormfront for pushing the visual envelope on the memory-starved PlayStation 2 and bringing gamers who’ve never experienced a Forgotten Realms game a taste of one of the worlds of D&D.

    The game looks fantastic, controls like a dream and is brilliantly paced, elements that add up to a "must buy" in my book.

    Rags to Riches mode is a solid, funny "reality" show feature in Ballers, and it's a great combo of simulation and sports action elements that just adds more to the package.

    A truly fantastic game that is without a doubt the best game in the series. However, it is disappointing that the control and camera problems from the last game weren't fixed, and the new focus on vehicles was too overemphasized for my liking.

    You’ll get all the thrills of those other zombie killing games without the stupid puzzles, annoying characters and confusing plot elements, the multiplayer is innovative and addictive and hell, this is the only legal way to spread an infection that won’t get you quarantined or run out of town or a rail.

    I hated the last four Ace Combat titles, but now, I am a believer. The Unsung War offers up a great story, fantastic gameplay, and a gripping experience that you should have you by the balls from the beginning.

    I can't believe that Phantom Dust retails for only twenty bucks. Considering all it packs in and the workout your brain and fingers get, this is one of the best values in gaming this year, hands down.

    The super high learning cure will absolutely knock quite a few gamers out of their seats, again, especially if they try to jump into things like they’re playing "Starcraft" for the 2000th time.

    Yes, the game’s main collection of 20-plus story missions last roughly 10 hours, but after that you’ll be spending at least two or three times as many hours striving for 100% game completion and the ultimate ascension to Don of NYC.

    One thing that’s subtle-yet-striking is that you can tell the difference when you hit someone and when you’re getting being hit by the way the screen shakes.
