    • 100 Critic Score
    With a bevy of unlockables and a single-player freak-out well worth playing twice, there is much bang in this macabre buck.

    There's definitely something special about WarioWare Twisted!
    • 89 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It’s by far the best of its kind, and the variable but fair enemy AI keeps the game fresh, especially on higher difficulties.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    The Movies takes Tycoon-style gameplay and brings it to a new level of polish and immersion, not only delivering addicting and challenging gameplay, but the means to create some funny movies to share with friends, too.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Once again, it exemplifies the very definition of a boundary-pushing video game.
    • 90 Metascore

    Where "FIFA" feels like hockey with soccer players, Winning Eleven 8 feels like the year's first entrant for best sports game of 2005.

    Many will balk at the game because it doesn’t offer a million different models of car. Those who do are missing the point. Grid is all about the fun and excitement of the race. It’s racing with a capital ‘R’ minus the frustration. You won’t find a more fun racing game this year.

    All hype and scare-the-girlfriend jokes aside, Silent Hill 3 is a truly disturbing, frightening, and bloody experience (more or less in that order). This is the current high-mark of scary games, period, with production values that put most contemporary horror-flicks to shame.

    Quite simply the best skating game for handheld systems ever. Totally worthy.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    The new commentating team, Backtrack replays, soundtrack, and improved graphics really packs that extra punch of realism making this game a must buy.

    It's like the fine wine of videogames, and anyone who sees it in motion will be mesmerized. And if they play it? They'll be straight-up intoxicated.

    Once you get a firm grasp on gameplay, you'll be playing a flexible and rewarding game. With its unobtrusive story and mission-based structure, Final Fantasy Tactics Advance is perfect for gaming on the go.

    Rock Band 2 has a killer track list seemingly compiled from every mix tape you were proud of in college.
    • 92 Metascore

    Forza caters beautifully to both casual racers and hardcore car nuts, which is all that matters.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Even the most cynical gamers will have a hard time not being won over by its charms. In short, it's the type of game you bought a GameCube for in the first place and, thanks to its excellent multiplayer modes, has a lot of staying power.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    This is as light and unpretentious as RPGs get. If the typical melodramatic RPGs make you laugh more than cry and you've grown tired of casting dragon destroyer +7, Mario & Luigi is just what the plumber ordered.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    There’s just nothing out there that comes close to what this game can deliver with three friends. And don’t even get me started on what will happen if you break this out at a party.
    • 96 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It’s hard to think of a game on the shelves that provides more bang for the buck than The Orange Box. For $60, you get one of the best games ever made along with its episodic sequels, a top-tier multiplayer game, and a brilliant little puzzler with some of the best writing in the medium. There’s really no reason not to own it.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It takes everything that made the original game so compelling and makes it feel fresh and relevant all over again. It’s simple. It’s elegant. It is Pac-Man reborn.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    This is the kind of game that takes over your brain after long play sessions, leading you to scrutinize real-life buildings for handholds and leaping potential. It’s an absolute blast to play, and arguably one of the finest superhero games made thus far.
    • 96 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    The art direction is outstanding; mixing art deco architecture, classic 1950’s graphic design and tons of great old music from the early jazz era that adds a musty creepiness to the overall atmosphere of the game. It’s definitely not your typical Space Marine fare, and that’s a very good thing.
    • 83 Metascore

    Not only is it an immersive and convincing gameplay experience, but it will undoubtedly be a bit of collector's item.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    The game tells a finely crafted and interesting story at its own pace, and those without the patience to appreciate it may not understand what all the fuss is about.

    Once again, it exemplifies the very definition of a boundary-pushing video game.

    So while only the most die-hard fans should re-open their wounded wallet a second time, anyone who missed it owes it to themselves to play one of the best games of this generation.
    • 95 Metascore

    For hardcore football fans, Madden NFL 2003 is a must-own. From the assortment of modes to in-depth features like the playbook editor, this game was made for those who appreciate the intricacies of football.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    One of the finest first-person shooters to hit the PC in years. It is intense, fast-moving, challenging, and despite the unrealistic elements, it feels real.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Civ IV isn’t quite light enough to captivate all gamers, but it is the most fun, most engaging, and most entertaining of the series.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It's the best original (nonport) GBA RPG to date, sporting stellar graphics, above-average sound, and a worthwhile experience (at least 20 hours of gameplay) that should make that next family roadtrip that much more tolerable.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It’s inconceivable that any current WoW player wouldn’t want to get Wrath of the Lich King. Once again, Blizzard has knocked our socks off with an expansion that expands on the original game and taken it to new heights.
