    The most realistic war games I have ever played. Not only are the graphics stunning, the sound effects, music, dependence on teammates, weapons, and the overall feel of the game is amazing.

    If you’re an action gamer like me you will probably play every last penny of this AWESOME game!

    Mind-blowingly more amazing than its older brother!

    Single player has a great story line with lots of twists and turns that keeps you interested.

    Nothing less than a revolution in the gaming industry that will keep gamers busy for years to come, just as the original did.

    This makes for a massively exciting single player campaign not to mention some of the funnest multiplayer I have ever played on an RTS game in ages!

    It’s got anything, and EVERYTHING you would EVER want in a WWII game, actually its got pretty much everything you’d ever want in a game, period.

    Side-missions are just amazingly fun.

    The new mods alone, including space-based and mythological scenarios, are enough to keep a dedicated player occupied for days, and the new civilizations and systems introduce so many new layers to the gameplay that Civilization IV is practically a new game entirely.

    Anno 1404 is the best Anno yet and one of the best strategy games in a long time. Tons of games are addictive, very few of them for the right reasons – but this game is both.

    The ability to make me jump when enemies fly out at me, or even better to make me jump when a light breaks or a beam falls forcing me to start firing at nothing, this is a huge achievement. This game will easily join the ranks of "System Shock 2" and "Undying" as one of the scariest FPS titles ever made.

    This, to me, is the pinnacle of arcade racing on the PC, and I honestly don’t have the interest or will to play anything else, and I doubt I can find a finer product. I think Nadeo have done what they could with the series, and other developers should take note: this is how you make a game.

    There's an air of amusing determination to everything Max does. All the murdering is very satisfying for that reason.

    This game is more than a game, and it's also more than a movie. It's a virtual playground, true, but its characters and main protagonist are human and real--albeit living by an extremely warped version of the conventional system of morals.

    What Irrational has achieved with the narrative is, quite simply, incredible.

    Refreshes the Civ series and offers a great experience for newcomers to the series as well as seasoned veterans. It is immensely fun whether you play multi- or single-player.

    Aside from mission parameters and available equipment, you really can do anything you want in ArmA.

    It's easily the best single-player campaign in the series.

    Saying that it stands head-and-shoulders above all of the scant competition for grand-strategy kingship almost goes without saying.

    Portal 2 is fantastic. Its single-player provides ample amounts of genuinely funny and compelling narrative and some great puzzles, while the co-op takes the game's mechanics and pushes them to their absolute, playable limit. You're only getting around 10-12 hours after delving into both halves of the game, but it's a concentrated thrill, where its weakest moments are still standards that most developers can barely reach in the first place.

    For the explorer in all of the us, for the curious in all of us, for the adventurer in all of us, Skyrim is our game.

    The Witcher is very definition of a new and improved sequel.

    What ultimately sets Advent Rising apart from other Sci-Fi themed video games is the cinematic quality of its storytelling. Orson Scott Card truly touched upon a great story with this game and I certainly hope to see parts 2 and 3 of the Advent Rising Trilogy within the next few years.

    A true thriller in that it makes use of corner-of-the-eye imagery, unsettling voices, and effects to send chills down your spine which leads to a healthy dose of dread.

    What they gave us is not just Baldur’s Gate in space; the core gameplay and thus subsequent gameplay elements are very different – making Space Rangers a unique experience.

    Left 4 Dead is simply spectacular.

    Left 4 Dead 2 is better and bigger than Left 4 Dead. It’s a sequel that builds on its incredibly stern and ludicrously fun foundations, expanding in all the right places and scrubbing out all the little problems that existed in the original.

    If you can make it through the single player game on either medium or hard, you will likely be ready to get online and play.

    Chaos Theory's fluid gameplay and intuitive control scheme firmly demonstrates to others in the genre exactly how a stealth game should play and feel.
