    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.

    A remarkable achievement. I need to stress just how thoughtful and smart its progression is. The way you make your way around Arkham is executed so well, and everything about the game is polished to an almost offensive sheen.

    If for some reason I were to live in another world that had to be designed by humans, I wouldn't have a problem if Cyan created it.

    Unlike most such games Sunrise is packed full of features and what you get with it--besides a unique solo experience--are tools to effortlessly create custom content and share it and enjoy it together with everyone else. It is less than a year old and the community has already made an incredible amount of tracks and vehicles, and Nadeo released a free expansion pack.

    While Open for Business adds new places and new objects, its true value is in adding another huge gameplay element to an already outstanding title. As an expansion pack, it includes more new content and better gameplay than several other stand-alone games.

    Certainly the best Adventure Game of 2005 and possibly destined to be considered one of the most elite point and click adventure games ever released.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    There is something about the visual style of the game that makes it look a lot more real than other racers which compared to it seem fake and outdated. I guess it's the combination of a potent engine with a few skilled artists, or maybe it's my imagination, fact is that CRC is among the best looking games out now.

    The textures and color vibrancy will blow you away.

    The Movies is an all-around first-class effort. It is easy to learn, fun and addictive to play.

    I was completely impressed with Portal. It’s a great game that’s innovative, fun, and contains a humorous storyline. My only real complaint was that it was too short, and I want more.

    Darwinia is revolutionary and groundbreaking.
    • 94 Metascore

    Truly what makes the game great is the world itself, which is just so much fun to explore.
    • 79 Metascore

    Not bad for a project that started out in a college dorm.

    However long your initial play-through is, Mass Effect will only impress with its cinematic dialogue sequences, intense combat, and addicting exploration aspect.
    • 75 Metascore

    A must buy to those that enjoyed the original. Hardcore fans should already own it, and everyone else will miss out on another great game yet again.

    Rockstar took a look at those demands, took a few core principles, and then gave us a Max Payne game worth talking about and absolutely worth playing with a ballsy willingness to not compromise on their own artistic direction.
    • 82 Metascore

    This game is about the best game I’ve ever played for the PC.
    • 77 Metascore

    The highlight of the game by far is exploitation.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    For all the thrills the single-player might provide, it’s nothing compared to what’s in the game, when you go online. It’s always thrilling, memorable and a joy to be part of the fight, a fight where your contributions matter for the entire team in big ways, even if it’s not always immediately apparent.

    This kind of depth hurls Dungeon Defenders far past the typical tower defense game.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The Myst games are not for everyone. I have always enjoyed them so I kind of know what to expect and how things work. I thought this game was fantastic.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It offers a quick adrenaline rush and beautifully detailed levels running on the spectacular Havok2.0 physics engine and, I must say, this game is one of a kind.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It offers incredible graphics, a decent story line, great sound, and it's challenging.

    One thing that is really great about SimCity 4 is the fact that EVERYTHING is under your control.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    One of the best World War II shooters I've ever played, and certainly one of the better shooters of recent years.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The final mission is by far the coolest and depending on how you finish it depends on the final cut scene.
    • 74 Metascore

    The rich, luscious colors somehow make the world a lot more believable than games like Crysis 2 could ever be.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Another amazing quality of this beyond awesome game, is that the guns basically aim for themselves, so you just point and shoot.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Half the fun of this game is building an effective, focused force piece by piece using artifacts and levels-up, as well as shrewd tactical choices.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Company of Heroes delivers on its promise of excellence. But it’s not without its downsides that I hope to make you aware of before you buy this game.
