    In video games there are still times where you're going to be surprised, and I was pleasantly surprised with Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds for the PS3 as it really gives a great arcade golf package.

    I was not one that thought Steven Spielberg’s first outing was going to be a stellar one, but boy did he and EA prove me wrong.

    The style is superb, and the gameplay flows right along with it to make Pure one of the few “must have” racing games in recent time.

    Grid doesn’t try to reinvent the wheel but instead builds around it and attempts to improve it, and in the end succeeds in making one of the most enjoyable racing games I have played in years.

    Madden 09 is a great sports game with its only major flaw being one of many sports games, and that is that it didn’t change drastically from the previous year.

    I am happy to report that Fight Night Round 4 is the complete package. If you are a fan of boxing, or of the series, you would be crazy not to go out and purchase this game.

    If you enjoyed the original and are wondering if this is a worthy successor my answer would be absolutely there is plenty of new content, and the online play is quite the treat.

    Bioshock is an absolutely fantastic game and one of the best of this generation first on the 360, and now just as good on the PS3.

    NBA Live 09 is the real deal when it comes to a great video game basketball experience. There isn’t a new mode that takes the game over the top, or a new feature that makes it best out there, but it is the combination of a vision and the hard work to get through some rough years to get to this game which is by far the best NBA Live game I have played in a long, long time.

    If you liked the old Mega Man games then you probably already bought this, but if not do it immediately, and if you have never played one before, it’s a good time to start.

    If you enjoyed the first, or are interested in getting into the series, then I would highly recommend checking this game out. Plus you can’t beat the $20 price point, that is some serious bang for your buck.
