    The only things that I had a problem with were the dated graphics (which wasn’t hard to overcome), the shaky A.I., and the “use” key not always working correctly when trying to use things such as levers or artillery guns (I’m sure there will be patches). These few problems were not enough to distract me from a great expansion.

    The multiplayer component is designed perfectly.

    It has its shortcomings, but it still makes its mark as one of the best releases of the year, at this point. The graphics and setting alone make it a real stand-out, and I like the fact that Ubisoft tried to go after something a bit more unique in a genre that is known for rampant replication.

    I’d like to thank BugBear for finally spending the time to deliver a fantastic damage model in a racing game.

    The combat is in the game is extremely gratifying.

    It is when it tries to do something else other than combat that the game stumbles.

    The environments are perfect.

    I was pleased to find that SME1 contains all of the humor, atmosphere, and genuine fun of the previous game.

    If you’re a fan of the series and are able to swallow Ubisoft’s fulsome addition to Blue Byte’s game, I’d definitely recommend The Settlers 7.

    You get a real sense of claustrophobia in the middle of the mess trying to figure out which direction to go and who to shoot in the haze.

    The game is immensely playable and re-playable, guaranteeing the player a new experience each time the game is played. [Gold Ed.]

    It's addicting and it might make it well worth the $60 if you're trying to justify a purchase by calculating overall playtime. You think about that, but I'm telling you, Dead Space 2 is pretty damn good.

    In Nomine is really jam-packed with new stuff to obsess over.

    Mass Effect 2 is a great shooter loaded with involving dialogue. The way it addresses some of the other issues varies in success, but it’s still an extremely entertaining product and a great way to kick off 2010’s amazing first-quarter barrage.

    For a rushed product that is still battling bugs, the currently offered product still provides 40 hours of challenging and engaging gameplay. This combines to provide a good, but not great gaming experience.

    This is as replayable as it gets. Nightlife--as is the Sims 2--is completely open-ended.

    Graphically, F.E.A.R. 2 looks leaps and bounds better than its predecessor.

    The game just gets weirder and weirder, as you keep playing, and it's an all-in move from Remedy to just keep pushing its story to its absolute limit of insanity. It reaches its zenith of crazy by the last episode of the game, and it's just such a great culmination of everything that's happened before, that if there were such an award as Best One Hour of a Game, Alan Wake would take the prize.

    A fun game with a very high level of polish but not a great deal of depth. It’ll cast its spell on you early with its beautiful visuals and agile main character, and it’s a fantastic experience while it lasts, which isn’t nearly long enough.

    The single-player and co-op intertwine really well.

    Even with its smaller scope and its similarities to its year-old predecessor, Napoleon is a better, more polished game.

    Any fan of the genre will be surprised at just how much Depths of Peril has to offer.

    Crysis contains some amazing sound effects and graphics, the kind that sells hardware to gamers like yours truly.

    Obsidian has made an outstanding game and someday, they'll crank out a product that isn't barely holding itself together, but until that day, New Vegas has so much of what makes RPGs so great – influencing the events and people around you, the joy of discovery and playing a role in a world that matters.

    The episode should clock in somewhere around four hours depending on how often you use the hint system. I think people of all ages could really enjoy The Great Cow Race, especially the fans of the comics.

    The in-game music was a semi-prehistoric rendering that was appropriate for the certain settings in which the game takes place.

    All in all, Survivor is not big step forward, actually it’s hardly even a step, but it’s more Shadowgrounds, which is enough of a reason to go and get it. I don’t know of any other top-down shooters for the PC which are done as well, or look as good or cost $20.

    Any fan of the series, already dedicated to playing the game at least a few hours a week, will find this well worth the investment.

    It improves on a great formula, and the only areas it is lacking in are areas in which no other grand strategy game has ever excelled.

    Modern Warfare 2 is a great game, and if it weren’t for all the PC-defining features that were stripped out of the game, it’d doubtlessly be superior to its predecessor. What we have here, though, is a game that’s lost a lot in its transition to the PC, and whether that’s something you can tolerate, well… you know.
