    This game personifies all that is good about rock and roll - along with its excesses. Guitar Hero II does exactly what it says it will do, which is to rock your ass off (but instead of ass, it's your fingers).

    The new content alone more than makes it a worthy purchase even for those who have played the original release. A year on, Ninja Gaiden is still an extraordinary game. Game of the Year? Insulting. Game of the Generation.

    Absolutely - bar none - THE must-own game of 2007 on ANY platform. Mass Effect is damn near perfect!

    I love you, Bethesda. I eagerly await Elder Scrolls 4 and Call of Cthulu. Marry me.

    A singluar game that proves videogames can be artistic. It must be played.

    It all comes down to the freedom to play the game any way you want, and that is something that Oblivion does amazingly well.

    This is the best version of one of the best PS2 games ever made. Sure, the online mode isn't perfect, but even so, there’s more than enough here for any Metal Gear fan to feast on.

    A true classic, Rogue Galaxy brings Level 5 full circle in their growth as a developer; they have created not only the last great PS2 RPG, but one of the top five PS2 RPGs of all time!
    • 93 Metascore
    • 97 Critic Score
    It’s still a life-sucking, hour-robbing masterpiece that can convert people who don’t normally play RPGs into die-hard game addicts.

    This is a great game all around, and the few gripes really don’t amount to much. Get some friends, get this game, and get rockin’!

    There is little fault to be found in this game as the fighting is balanced and there are lots of engaging aspects of the title that demand your time.

    It’s hard to find fault with a game that does so many things so well.

    Immediately becomes the best reason to own a PSP in ages. MUST… HAVE!
    • 94 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    An inventive, immersive thrill ride of a game with graphics above and beyond everything else on the market, top-notch presentation, and a multiplayer mode that will have you coming back for more, even if you were only in it for the single-player mode from the get-go.

    One could blast through the game in a few hours, but that would be missing the point. LocoRoco is meant to be a game where one sits back, relaxes, and enjoys a simple game to unwind with.

    • 95 Critic Score
    Oh my fudge, this game is well worth the price if you or anyone you know is big on A: History (WWII Era), B: Control Freak or C: Gets a kick out of screwing with said history. If you like Risk you will enjoy this. Seriously.

    Don't get me wrong, this is a great version of the game that improves upon the original. I just want to impress upon you that you won't have any new experience, beyond the Wii remote.

    This is the kind of game we were promised when the Wii was in development, and it is nice to see someone other than Nintendo deliver on those promises. Capcom has a real gem here, but you have to play it to understand.

    Anyone who doesn’t think Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions isn’t worth owning just doesn’t like RPGs.

    Call of Duty 4 is the whole package – both a spectacular single-player campaign and one of the best multiplayer modes I’ve ever encountered in a FPS. It’s got some of the best graphics ever to appear in a videogame, some of the best sound and voice acting, wonderful controls, and plenty of variety to keep the interest up and adrenaline flowing.

    The general spiritual themes of the first game are expanded on from the word, “Go,” here.

    • 93 Critic Score
    It meshes impressive graphics with an inventive gameplay system, and uses them to push an amazing story in a refreshingly unique setting. Unless you faint at the sight of blood or you absolutely despise FPS games, you should consider this game a must buy.

    The best platformer on the PSP and almost the best title period on the console.

    Forza 2 is a great game for novices and gearheads alike. Play it simple or fiddle with every last thing you can – the game works both ways.

    While Blue Dragon is clearly old school in its cartoonish art and turn-based gameplay mechanics, very distinctly different from a completely next-gen RPG-style title like Mass Effect, Blue Dragon definitely delivers something to the 360 that the original Xbox system never had enough of: an RPG so original, exciting and appealing, it will make PlayStation fans feel like they’re missing out on something important in the RPG landscape.

    Final Fantasy XII is flawed, and has all sorts of features seemingly designed to polarize fans. However, it is also a must-have RPG, and one of the best games of the year.

    Forget your opinions about the original Kingdom Hearts. Kingdom Hearts II improves on its predecessor in just about every possible way, and is a must-have title for Disney fans and Square Enix fans alike.

    Lara Croft Tomb Raider Legend is the sequel we’ve all been waiting for since the original Tomb Raider hit PSone.

    One of the few DS games that not only takes advantage of the platform but doesn’t try to shoehorn in use of every feature as well as having great gameplay.
