    In the day and age where every other game is a first person shooter, Heavy Rain comes to us with a fresh and original experience that is really unlike any other game on the market today. It is not perfect but its originality to me makes it a must have for any Playstation 3 owner.

    The game nailed the atmosphere and the intensity of the World Cup in a way that sports games have tried but never succeeded in doing.

    MLB 10: The Show is a great game of baseball and is one that has the staying power to be a game you can continue playing well into the dog days of summer.

    Fans rejoice because not only is Resident Evil back, but now you not only can enjoy it on your own but with your friend as well. The new cooperative gameplay works quite well, and if your a fan of the franchise it just make sense to go out and buy this one as well.

    NCAA Football 11 is a great game of football, it has some shortcomings, but those are overshadowed by an all around excellent football game that I found to be one of the best the series has put out on this generation of consoles.

    Sharing some similarities with the celebrated GTA franchise, THQ's actioner adds some original elements and some fluid controls to make this a winner on the 360.

    Madden NFL 11 is a great game of football, the best of the series so far, but its not without a few minor draw backs.

    Let's face it even without MJ, NBA 2K11 is one of the best sports games I have played in years and manages to push the bar even higher not only for competing basketball titles but for sports games in general.

    Although Call of Duty: Black Ops may have a lot familiar to fans of the series, Treyarch has pushed a lot of the right buttons and has made the best Call of Duty game to date.

    It's without question that Need for Speed Hot Pursuit is one of the, if not the most enjoyable racing games of 2010.

    If there is one thing that really stands out to me about Rock Band 3 is that in a time where music games are starting to feel dated, Rock Band 3 manages to still be fresh.

    For any platformer fan, or fan of the previous game, LittleBigPlanet 2 is a game worth checking out.

    There is no doubt about it; Dead Space 2 is one of the most intense video games ever created and one that should not be missed. Whether you played the original or not, this is the first game of 2011 that I would say is a "must own".

    Although not a monumental step forward, MLB 11: The Show continues to be the king of the diamond. The new analog controls add an extra layer to the experience that works really well.

    One the greatest games ever to grace a console. It's fun, simple and has a great replay value. Once you get past the 16-bit gameplay graphics, you're sure to find a lot to like about Lunar 2.

    The plot is certainly original for an RPG, with the concept of cells as the unseen enemy of mankind. Certainly would have made a good movie by Hollywood standards.

    I really thought the developers did a great job of making a very easy yet complex combat system that allowed gamers to really let it loose and have fun.

    There were too many times in the game where there wasn't a whole lot of fun. And personally the combat system could have allowed you to have more control of the character without having to give up the RPG elements.

    PGR2 fixes almost all of the problems that plagued original, and even manages to improve upon everything else.

    It was a nice breath of fresh air to have these telepathic abilities that worked so well with the game.

    The combat in the game is very entertaining and combine that with a very solid storyline and you have a game that will make any X-Men fan very happy.

    The Live support is really what makes this game as fun as it is.
