    The gameplay is slower and more intense than Tom Clancy’s roster and no less authentic or compelling in its presentation.

    Offers the best in arcade street racing with a large selection of cars, lively cast of characters, wonderful locations, challenging course designs, single, multiplayer, and online racing, and endless creative possibilities with the Race Editor.

    Double Agent is fun, exciting, intense, and definitely a showcase title for the visual elegance of the 360, but if you want a fully fleshed out story, extended levels, more dialogue, and an overall richer Splinter Cell experience, I’d have to recommend the original Xbox version over this.

    If Red Faction: Guerrilla was merely a war game, or if it was merely a demolition game, it probably wouldn’t be this great, but the seamless blending of both elements into the massive futuristic landscape of Mars with loads of vehicles and weapons, sinister enemy AI, territory acquisition, and morale balancing, makes this one of the most inventive, addictive, and guilt pleasures on my PlayStation 3 this year.

    Paints an epic tale while sporting an uncommonly, enjoyably light-hearted approach to much of it. It holds its own not just as a sequel but as a true, full-fledged Final Fantasy title in its own right.

    It's the best Madden game yet. But it's just not that huge a leap from Madden 09 to recommend an upgrade.

    There is something that is totally addicting about participating in a multiplayer band, whether you are all in the same room or joining up with fellow rockers online. And if you are an aspiring musician or music producer, or like to play around with mixing boards and experiment with creating your own music, the Music Studio is a totally original addition to World Tour and sets this game apart from any of the competition.

    Tropico is one of the most fun and addictive strategy games of the year and perhaps the best strategy game to date.

    The combat engine has been refined to the point where veterans of the series might have a tougher time than newcomers, but there are plenty of rewards waiting for those who can master this next-gen fighter.

    I can’t recommend Pure highly enough. This is without a doubt one of the best racers I’ve played all year, if not the best.

    Given the amount of fresh and brilliantly executed content Mines of Moria adds to the already-outstanding Lord of the Rings Online, most gamers are likely to find this expansion a satisfying addition to their gaming experience.

    As I have stated before I am a huge Mortal Kombat fan and was not excited at all about reviewing this game. After playing for about an hour I quickly forgot about my feelings and become a huge fan.

    It may not rival the grand stories of some past Final Fantasy’s or even some of the better Disney movies; however, it is a fine game that manages to combine each company’s strengths in a tapestry that is a joy to behold and an even greater one to play.

    Soul Calibur IV is the ultimate evolution of the franchise to date, with gorgeous visuals, solid controls, immersive sound, and a deep character builder that will keep you involved with this game for months to come.

    It doesn't deliver on all fronts, has some dubious design choices, but is itself one of the finest RPG's on the Xbox and the most fun I've had with an RPG (a genre I'm not historically all that fond of) since "Kingdom Hearts."

    GTR is perhaps the most realistic, true-to-life racing simulation that I have ever come across.

    Treyarch has taken all their expertise with the COD engine and borrowed all of the fantastic multiplayer tech from Modern Warfare to create the ultimate military shooter, a shooter so satisfying and complete you won't care what war it is you're fighting.

    A severe, albeit pleasant, shock to system. The game has grabbed me in a way that only “No Mercy” has ever topped.

    If you buy or rent this title expecting it to be Wolfenstein in the woods you’re going to be very disappointed. Like authentic hunting, Outdoor Adventures demands wit, attention to detail, and – I’ll say it again – patience!

    I'll trade in better sound and graphics and smoother gameplay any day over a few features.

    This is a twisted and deranged game, and I loved every minute of it.

    Marvel vs. Capcom 3 might be a bit light in the gaming modes, there's no denying that the core gameplay is solid enough stands on its own and has something to offer for every type of gamer. Fighting fans of all flavors will enjoy the hybrid 2D-meets-3D gameplay, the smooth animations, and the excellent character special moves.

    The best dungeon crawler I can remember on any platform, the superb interface, and super polished gameplay allow anyone to be able to pick up and enjoy this one.

    Guitar Hero 5 isn’t the best game the industry can offer but it has made huge leaps, and for once, this time, they are all in the right direction.

    In my opinion, this is by far the best Mario game currently available.

    Since the game is fairly open-ended as to how you play it and which side you choose, you could easily play this game all the way through a few times before you ever started feeling tired of it.

    With a nearly endless variety of items to utilize in killing a plethora of undead, there are hours of enjoyment in store for any would be zombie slayer. There is also an intriguing story lurking behind the curtain of blood that isn’t fully realized unless the game is played through a couple times to max out Frank’s stats and moves.

    Obsidian hasn’t strayed from a proven formula but they have added a few interesting and subtle touches that will delight RPG fans and Star Wars fan alike.

    I was expecting so much more from this title, but the most Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones can manage to deliver is a few new acrobatic and combat moves and a Dark Prince that looks cool but that's about it.
