    Fortunately, the story and humor were my main concerns, and they seem to have come through almost completely intact.

    It has all the right components (quality gameplay, strong graphics and sound). Move over Civilization, there's a new emperor in town and his name Caesar 4.

    Another year, comes another Madden game. While this years version once again delivers, and certainly does the NFL proud, it is still however a Madden game. The core game remains the same and despite all the enhancements, Madden NFL 12 looks and feels very similar to last year's iteration. Hardcore fans will inevitably purchase the game, but for those fringe fans who already own Madden NFL 11 it is hard to recommend dropping another 60 bucks on a game that plays almost identical to last years. That being said, on its own Madden NFL 12 is a stunner and is an upgrade, albeit slight, over its predecessor.

    If you enjoy puzzles, this is one for you. Kind of like a 5000 piece jigsaw with only 3 shades of grey to choose from be prepared to spend many hours piecing this mystery together.

    It is the best platformer you'll play all year, guaranteed. The pacing is wonderful, controls are intuitive and responsive, the gameplay is addictive, the worlds are beautiful and the plot will keep you coming back for more.

    All-in-all, NCAA 11 delivers on so many levels and is truly an enjoyment this time around.

    With 18 breeds of dogs, extremely lifelike animation and a cute factor that is over the top, one cannot go wrong by giving Nintendogs a try.

    When looking at this game, you have to look at the game itself, and leave the hype behind. When you do that, you find a great sim-racing game, with an amazing amount of single player goodness and a real learning experience that most of us will never experience in real life.

    With great graphics, a more forgiving control scheme, great music and fantastic online play, videogaming snowboarders can't go wrong.

    EA Sports has done another excellent job with its latest hockey title, NHL 12. They have done some noticeable tweaking to an already solid game and I think most sports fans will appreciate the new additions while fans of the franchise, like myself, will love the familiar gameplay. There is once again enough new stuff here to keep hockey lovers gaming on the virtual ice for another year.

    One of the deepest and enjoyable games I have played in sometime, let alone the fact that is on the GBA.

    Overall, Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure is one of the more innovative gaming experiences I have played on the Xbox 360 to date. Its cross-platforming abilities, slick looking toy figures, and enjoyable gameplay all make for a game which should not only please long time Spyro fans, but will surely satisfy the games younger target audience.

    Considering this is the first next-generation instalment of the UFC it is likely to be a great selling franchise for THQ as UFC 09: Undisputed is truly a knock-out.

    This is a game that is definitely worth the purchase price and I think that it is a must have DLC title for the PlayStation 3.

    For a sub-10 dollar game ($7.99 USD), Shatter is totally worth your cash and time. It is beautiful, unique, and most of all fun.

    With solid graphics, great sound, and some very addictive gameplay, including the multiplayer component, Resistance 3 is a great way for the PS3 to start the fall/winter season of gaming

    The graphics are brilliant, especially in High Definition, and the sound is rock solid, and even more so in Dolby Digital 5.1.

    Peggle is no doubt one of the more addictive games available on the Xbox LIVE arcade.

    Other than slight pixelation in a few parts of the game, the graphics will leave you breathless and the sound is absolutely spectacular.

    Incredibly deep and offers up an action RPG game that will surely please those gamers who enjoy playing games like Splinter Cell and Mass Effect. It is a visually stunning game that features a top notch audio package and a storyline that is engaging.

    Despite many new entries into the fitness genre, EA Active remains above its competition. EA Active 2 brings a host of new exercises to the mix, great new motion accessories that are more accurate, a very welcome heart rate monitor and robust online integration. The only drawback I find is that versions on other consoles take better advantage of newer motion technologies.

    Once you start this one you'll have a hard time putting it down - I found myself playing longer just to see the next weapon upgrade I'd get - it's like Christmas all over again!

    The learning curve is straight up with no handholds or shortcuts; there is just no quick way to get going on the servers. However, once you get a hand on the gameplay, Tribes 2 will definitely be a title that will keep you coming back for more.

    The sound effects are insane and have a very high level of detail.
