    It's a game of the decade contender. 'Nuff said.

    A true evolution of the platforming genre and one of the best videogames to come out in a long time.

    The kind of game that proves that maturity and creativity can still go hand in hand.

    Like Half-Life 2 before it, BioShock is a breath of fresh air in a genre that has been saturated with the same old settings, the same old abilities, and the same old lame storylines that mostly serve as just a reason to shoot things up.

    The visuals found in RE4 are stunning. Excellent character modeling and animation make the world come alive, while detailed level design and texture mapping set the stage.

    A phenomenal game. It has put the thrill back into the survival horror genre.

    An entertaining, albeit unoriginal Zelda title that fails to be revolutionary yet still has the classic gameplay elements that make the series so great.

    One of the game's biggest achievements, however, is that it actually gets you to care about Carl and his friends - the other gang members who ride and fight with you on most missions. They all seem to have their own personalities and come across as being fully-realized characters.

    The weapons targeting system while on foot has gotten a significant upgrade from last years abysmal attempt, however targeting specific people in groups can still be problematic. Also the camera can be a bit confusing while running indoors. Overall, though, GTA:VC is a joy to play.

    If "Ocarina" was a great step forward from its Super Nintendo predecessor "Link to the Past" in terms of plot development, Twilight Princess is leaps and bounds ahead of "Ocarina."

    Gears of War excels for so many reasons it is impossible to count them all. Aside from the obvious things like graphics and gameplay, there numerous little touches like the roadie run and character dialogue that push it over the edge into video game greatness.

    A monster of an RPG that raises the bar for all future console epics; ‘Live another life, in another world’ says it all.

    With new graphics, new modes of play and new weapons, Chaos Theory plays like Splinter Cell but feels just different enough to keep fans of the series happy.

    If you want more than this from an arcade racer, you've got to be crazy. It's all here in spades!

    That about does it for Metal Gear Solid 4, it's an amazing achievement for the teams that worked on it and more than lives up to being a next-generation video game.

    A superbly designed and executed action adventure game that is among the finest ever made.
    • 94 Metascore

    It is a modern classic in every sense of the term, transcending the boundaries of film and interactive gaming.

    What else can I say other than you simply owe it to yourself to buy this game and treat yourself to one of the greatest multiplayer gaming experiences of all time. The only thing that stops me from giving it a perfect score is the not so perfect online mode.

    The true beauty of this experience is on two fronts. First off, the sessions are much longer than what you see in normal online games. Trust me when I tell you that the 30 second "Counter Strike" rounds that some of you are used to will play no part in this game.

    Braid is one of the best, if not the best, games I have ever played.

    You simply won't find a more satisfying single player experience on the PS2.

    While it may not be perfect, its few flaws are, for the most part, covered up by its sheer immersion factor; I have never before been this drawn into a game's environment; I am literally happy just spending an hour wandering through the world of Okami, checking out the sights and doing various menial tasks - I'm ashamed to admit how much time I have spent running around in circles while barking repeatedly.

    The newest installment in the Elder Scroll series is as polished and addictive RPG you'll find on any platform. With so much exploration and adventure at your fingertips, this is just what the doctor ordered for the struggling PS3.

    Rock Band may be the perfect party game. Solo play doesn't stand on its own, but with a little help from your friends, getting the band back together is a blast.

    Simply the best game available on any system right now and is the best Final Fantasy to date.

    A rock-solid music game (no pun intended) that includes a good number of improvements from its already-fantastic predecessor.
    • 92 Metascore

    Fans of the original Rock Band will probably find Rock Band 2 worth it both for the large new tracklist and the numerous engine improvements, while newcomers to the series will enjoy one of the most polished music game experiences to date.

    Everyone should try this game at least once. If you’re not smiling by the end of playing your first tune there’s something wrong with you.

    While Snake Eater is still highly cinematic in it's presentation and design, it's based on a bad movie. To paraphrase from the Indiana Jones films: you'll beat it, kid, but that doesn't mean you have to like it.

    RE4: Wii Edition is the penultimate release of a fantastic game.
