    Do yourself a favor, and pick up this table. As mentioned, it's top notch in quality and only surpassed by the amazing Captain America table. Zen Studios just keeps getting better and better at making tables, and with more in the pipeline I can only dream of the quality they will be. If you're done with Ms Splosion Man already, get ready to Splode again.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Priced at a very accessible 800 Microsoft Points anyone who enjoyed Splosion Man needs to pick this title up, and if you haven't played Splosion Man before either buy that one or just buy both, you won't be disappointed if you enjoy tough, yet rewarding titles.

    Even with a new developer, the game doesn't miss a beat.

    In spite of an abundance of cheap shots, the game's personality and originality elevate The Gunstringer into the upper echelon of Kinect titles. In fact, it's my favorite Xbox Kinect title to date.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    While not a perfect game, the only real nitpick I have is the platforming sometimes became a little difficult due to the art style and camera angles, it's definitely an experience that shouldn't be missed.

    The straightforward nature of the game certainly doesn't hurt the final product, nor to the great Wii controls.

    Ingenious, but a little gameplay short of "must have."

    The PlayStation 3 finally gets its LEGO Star Wars fix, and in spite of its Sixaxis control snafus and camera issues, it still turns out to be the best such outing yet.
    • 84 Metascore

    The very realization that it’s a role-playing game may put some people off, but those people will be missing out on a fantastic experience.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 89 Critic Score
    While the gameplay is easy, we found the level of difficulty to be perfectly balanced and the vehicle upgrades to be a welcome addition to the standard shooter.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 89 Critic Score
    The physics are fantastic and the tuning terrific, but pound-for-pound, it doesn't offer any more in the "sim racing" category than a couple of existing budget titles.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 89 Critic Score
    Spectacular in its combat and technical areas but a complete letdown in its storytelling and paranormal aspects. Ultimately, it’s a highly polished but surprisingly standard first-person shooter, a game that feels like it's missing some parts. If you can ignore all that, it’s an absolute blast.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Unless you're a huge Beatles fan, there's no need to go out any drop the additional $250 for Beatles-era instruments, because the existing Rock Band instruments work just fine. There's also no need to rush out and get the game today, because chances are you'll "beat" the game well before the weekend.

    MLB 11: The Show redeems itself somewhat the longer you play in Road to the Show mode, much like an RPG rewards gamers who go through all that level grinding.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    It's still a lot of fun, but it doesn't quite have the same magic as its immediate predecessor.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    A fast-paced adrenaline filled game. The HotSwap feature adds flexibility and variety to the missions, while the challenges and online play extend the replay value.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    The game includes more updates and upgrades than I expected, and it's nice to have Master Chief back again even if it is in a game we've technically all played before. Certain sections seem more linear and artificially extended than I recall, which is disappointing, but when you account for the game's reduced price, it's still a good value.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Uncharted flirts with greatness, but some gameplay, AI and plot issues keep it from achieving its full potential. It's still an incredible game, though, with the best production values we've seen in 2007.
    • 85 Metascore

    Fable isn't always awe-inspiring, and its combat lock-on system can be frustrating, but what it introduces to the genre is fantastic. "Watching" gamers' playing tendencies and assigning experience points accordingly is ingenious, and it really makes players practice their skills.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    On par with "GTA III" and "Vice City," and it includes multiplayer. Fans of the series should just go get it now.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Easily the best arcade basketball game I've played in years, but the requisite 14 fingers needed to play it is a bit ridiculous.
    • 83 Metascore

    A mostly realistic boxing simulator that's just a few sparring matches short of the title.
    • 81 Metascore

    Heavy weaponry is still the name of the game, but the absence of Clank takes away a little of the magic.

    Fans of aircraft combat titles should really enjoy Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War. It's got a good storyline, top-notch presentation and a great gameplay engine. Fast action, furious combat and flying fun make this a game you shouldn't miss.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Halo 3 is fun, and its Forge and Theater modes will provide hours of multiplayer entertainment, but nothing could've prepared us for our slight feeling of disappointment. The game's far too reliant on old gameplay tricks and recycled levels, and it really lost its narrative power.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    The game hits its stride late, but when it does, it hits it big. There’s a lot of fun here for the patient gamer.
    • 89 Metascore

    Dead Space introduces some much-needed new blood into the survival-horror genre, and it does it with style. There are a few minor annoyances and ridiculously hard sequences, but other than that, EA's new franchise is rock solid.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    If you're a sim fan or have kids between 6 and 60, it’s a "must buy." Aging graphics, sound and slowdown are its only detractors.

    The scale of battle both online and off is impressive, but the single-player experience still suffers from some tedious last-gen issues, from cheap deaths to linear levels.

    Practically three full games for the price of one. Seriously, you won't find a better value in games these days. And for those who were addicted to Tetris, Puzzle Kombat is going to steal away many hours of your life.

    A clear improvement over the current-gen version, and the definitive Burnout Revenge experience. Still not quite up to Takedown's greatness, though.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    The combat's fun, the plot's well executed and the multimedia's solid. If you don't mind a heavy dose of platforming with your non-gun combat, you won't be disappointed by Captain America.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    A surprisingly good racing game, and not just because it's a licensed title, that also happens to have fantastic 3D effects for those who have a 3D TV.
    • 87 Metascore

    There are still some sticky spots, and the graphics are showing their age, but get past the first campaign, and it’s a real treat for any FPS fan.

    Crysis 2 may not live up to every expectation, but its pleasant surprises make up for most of its shortcomings.

    Is Killzone 3 deep enough to snipe PSN players from the COD: Black Ops fold? Probably not. Is Killzone 3 outstanding enough to warrant single-player awards for its narrative? Nope. But let there be no doubt that when it comes to intense gameplay that gives not one spare second for players to catch their breath or laze their way into a routine, Killzone 3 is near the top of the pack. The fact that it's the best-looking game we've seen and happens to support full stereoscopic 3D is just icing on the cake.
    • 83 Metascore

    A solid outing, but not quite the excellent experience one would expect from a Sly Cooper game.

    • 89 Metascore

    One of the best games in the series, but the return to platforming introduces a bit more linearity. The creativity and humor, though, can't be topped.
    • 83 Metascore

    The free-roaming gameplay, expansive environments, fun combat and commendable graphics all make for a great experience, and the fact that it comes in a superhero game is just icing on an already-great cake.

    The Wii's enormous "casual" gamer base will eat Mario Kart Wii up with its accessible pick-up-and-play controls. Veterans aren't left out either with online play they've been clamoring for well over a decade.

    The presentation and feel of the game is near-perfect, but the actual gameplay, particularly on offense, comes up short and frustrating. Lock-On D is a nice feature as well, but it can be a crutch.

    For a guy like me who had to borrow a friends guitar to actually try the game – the fact that I'm now contemplating visiting a pawn shop to cash in on someone else's inability to make ends meet and buy my very own guitar should speak volumes to the titles power as a fun learning tool. Beginners, give this a shot – especially if you've already got a guitar collecting dust in the closet.

    That all of this fun is hampered somewhat by some noticeable bugs, which could have and should have been addressed before the game's release, is a shame. However, Champions of Norrath is still truly great, warts and all.

    The best in-game destruction ever can't make up for a few major shortcomings, but when a game is built to blow up buildings, it's hard to find much fault when it does that so well. You'll definitely overlook the shortcomings and focus on what this game does well instead.

    As of the writing of this, Super Street Fighter IV: 3D is the best title that I've had the privilege to play for the system. Not only are the fights fast paced and enjoyable, but the use of 3DS features such as Streetpass show some promise and the in game figure collection/battle system is something that is sure to keep people engaged for some time.

    Probably the craziest game I've played in years. The simplistic control and wonky concept have me locked into seemingly day-long games.
