    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 story is very good, but the gameplay execution leaves me wanting. A solid adventure game, but it seems to be coasting on the strength of its star.

    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.

    • 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.

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

    While Halo 3 doesn't force upon the player another tortuous romp through The Library, it does feature an agonizing substitute complete with seemingly endless waves of Flood victims. This--along with a handful of recycled locales in the final third of the game--is a lack of ingenuity in level design that sticks out sorely amid a slate of superbly conceived features.

    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.

    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 great adventure game that does everything a game is supposed to do, and while the bad habits of Hollywood march in to gaming, it still is worth every minute. Kratos could kill his way through the Mushroom Kingdom and it would be entertaining.

    • 97 Critic Score
    A singluar game that proves videogames can be artistic. It must be played.
    • 93 Metascore

    It’s still a life-sucking, hour-robbing masterpiece that can convert people who don’t normally play RPGs into die-hard game addicts.

    On PS2 or Xbox 360, Guitar Hero II is a fun game. The Xbox 360 version just doesn’t match up to the promise of what it could and should be.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 97 Critic Score
    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’!

    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.
    • 92 Metascore

    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).
    • 91 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    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.

    • 99 Critic Score
    Absolutely - bar none - THE must-own game of 2007 on ANY platform. Mass Effect is damn near perfect!
    • 90 Metascore

    So eventhough this game isn't the horrible likes of which Ghost Recon 2 was, it's still got its fair share of flaws in how short and monotonous the single-player storyline is.

    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.

    If you’ve never played a Burnout game, this isn’t a bad place to start, and if you’re a Burnout fan looking for the best version of Burnout Revenge, this is it.

    New Super Mario Bros. is a solid platformer and a nice homage to the Mario series, but it's not Mario's big return to 2D gameplay like everyone thought it would be.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It’s not the most original game on the PS3, but it’s easily one of the best. This is a must-have in any PS3 owner’s library.

    The most intriguing feature of the Rainbow Six: Vegas online experience is the Persistent Elite Creation: the player’s avatar in the online Rainbow Six universe.

    A good game with several hours of gameplay and a great way to show off your fancy HDTV.

    It's a rock-solid action game that looks spectacular, but if ports like this are really the best the PS3 is offering I'm a little concerned about the system's future.

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

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

    Syphon Filter Dark Mirror showcases all of the possibilities of the platform and executes them flawlessly.
