    Perfect. Epic. Unstoppable. Unbeatable. Irresistible. Sensational...The best videogame I have ever played. It is the crowning jewel of the industry. It is Nintendo's finest achievement.

    Tony Hawk himself really likes the game and loves getting online with his PS2. You could end up playing against the "man" himself if you're the lucky type.

    Magnificent. Until now, GoldenEye was arguably the best reason for gamers over the age of 16 to own a Nintendo 64. No longer.

    While Metroid Prime engages on no level other than gameplay, that gameplay is so perfectly tuned and refined, so continuously evolving and clever that you'll keep playing and playing, even when you're frustrated, even when you're honestly just a little bored with the back-tracking, and even though you don't care about the character or story.

    Rockstar Games has done the unthinkable, turning murderous greed into an honest to God art form with Grand Theft Auto 3.

    Halo has the best control of any console shooter I've ever played.

    With tasty graphics and gameplay that is sheer madness, Half-life 2 is sweeter than a chocolate-and-honey lollipop coated with sugar, and it provides twice the rush.

    A pure classic if I've ever seen one. It is infectious fun with superb depth. This is a must buy that will keep you interested for months on end.

    It has freaky monsters that pull out new surprises just when you think you're used to them. It has interesting boss battles. It has vile villains you really want to smack down. It has desperate battles where you're trapped in flimsy shacks while psychotic villagers break through doors and windows.

    I'd come off as a huge hypocrite if I didn't put Tekken 3 at the top of the list. "Tekken 2" was a 10, and Tekken 3 is a better game in most respects.

    I have never had a more immersive and engaging entertainment experience than I had with the first half of Half-Life...[but] the game peaks too soon.

    The style of the graphics however, does not appeal to me, technologically impressive though they are. It's the same way I don't like jazz music, but I know there is good and bad jazz, and that it requires talented musicians to perform it, but the genre of music just doesn't do it for me.

    If you can get past its slightly intimidating barrier to entry (getting your license to race in this game is trickier than the real thing), you'll play Gran Turismo for months and months and never see all of its glory. This is a classic.

    At times, it's hard to tell where sincerity ends and irony begins--select Snake's cigarettes in the inventory list and you're provided with the helpful information that cigarettes are highly addictive and bad for your health. Not like, for example, guns or anything.

    For the first time in a single player game, I truly felt I was playing my way through a pen and paper fantasy campaign.

    Calling this game huge is an understatement...All told, San Andreas is about four times the size of any previous GTA game.

    And of course, the true beauty of Vice City is total, absolute, glorious freedom...I guess what I am trying to say is this game is REALLY FRICKIN' GOOD.

    It's games like Gran Turismo 3 that make me proud to be doing this for a living!

    even though I had more fun playing through Ocarina of Time, overall, Majora's Mask is just as impressive technically and possibly even more rewarding to play because of Link's newfound abilities with each of the masks he acquires.

    Twilight Princess is a great game because it's full of so many activities, and just about every one of them not only finds a cool way to use the Wii control, they're just plain fun. This is a game full of creativity in its creature design, puzzle design, combat, and story.

    Even with the dark-screen frustrations and camera hurdles, Tony Hawk 2 is, without a doubt, the best interpretation of skateboarding ever created for a portable game system.

    Above all else, this game is spooky, stylish and most importantly, fun from beginning to end.

    The defensive AI has been cleaned up and perfected. I do mean perfected.

    The camera is so good in Gears of War that I never once thought about it while playing. I can't recall a single instance where it did not frame the action right, or hide anything I should have seen.

    Gripping. You will not be able to make your way through this unrelenting adventure without feeling your stomach flip and churn into knots.

    Playing Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory is like tearing open your presents Christmas morning and discovering to your shock that you got everything you asked for. No pairs of socks.

    • 95 Critic Score
    This is one of the best games I've ever played involving cars, asphalt and disregard for public safety. It is a must have for any gamer's collection, anybody who ever had fun smashing hot wheels cars into each other, or anyone who likes destruction.

    While Diablo is easy to get into, it doesn't hold too much charm after you have put many hours into it. The action is not complex and can become very repetitive.

    On top of the fun factor, GoW is also a delightful treat for the senses with its artistic rendition of ancient Greece.

    Simply a brilliant fighting game, and it seems that the best thing that ever happened to PlayStation 2 gamers
