    It truly is, in my opinion, the best and longest Zelda ever made. With nearly 70 hours of playtime committed and more still to do, I cant think of a better experience or value this holiday season.

    Undoubtedly the best game in the Mario Kart series, which considering the MK legacy is quite an achievement.

    The game dreams are made of. It’s beautiful, has hundreds and hundreds of professionally made challenging levels, a dozen playable characters, an in-depth level creator, and internet capabilities for endless replay through downloading new levels. [JPN Import]

    At a length of about thirty hours, the game may be considered short by epic RPG standards, but it also makes the game that much more replayable. [JPN Import]

    From the amazing experience that is the single player to the well balanced and extremely fun multiplayer to the visuals and beyond Gears is the best game of the year hands down.

    The game is a must-have even for those that have saturated themselves with Snake Eater. If you're not going to purchase the game for the new camera, then please purchase it for the inclusion of the original Metal Gears.

    A game that is so polished in pretty much all areas is pretty hard to come by, especially on a portable machine. Namco has definitely gone above and beyond the call of duty to bring the best Tekken experience to their fans on a portable medium. [JPN Import]

    The control scheme is better suited and more fluid on the GC than with the PS2 controller.

    From the well planned and executed single player campaign to the never-ending online battles, it’s one of those rare games where you feel like you got every penny’s worth and then some. [JPN Import]

    While these days many RPGs are attempting to change the old-school formula and divorce themselves from traditional RPG lineage, XS EP3 stays true to the formula but through fantastic dungeons, two great and very different battle systems, and a fast-paced 30 hour adventure that’s lacking in filler (so you basically get the same story that’d be in a 60-70 hour normal RPG with random filler plots), it creates a game that’s every bit as fresh as the best non-traditional RPGs.

    With hours and hours of gameplay in the tournament mode alone this is worth a purchase. Then you add on tons of unlockables including Final Fantasy characters and different basketballs and you've got a instant purchase. Oh yeah then you add on the extra mini-games, the WiFi Basketball, and the WiFi Mario Kart-esque game and you've got a no-brainer must have game of the summer. [JPN Import]

    It has an excellent battle system, more variety than almost any game out there, great graphics, and an interesting story. The title isn't perfect though. The story lacks a bit of cohesiveness and the auto-camera still can't seem to track everything that's going on. [JPN Import]

    While its slower adventure game style pacing and low difficulty may throw off a certain crowd, Okami’s charming world with its nice fairy tale story, great gameplay, and incredible graphics will give most an experience likely to be remembered for decades. Okami is truly a remarkable experience. [JPN Import]

    Has everything an action game fan would like: Incredible relentless gameplay, great graphics, and this time a bunch of new features including playing as the powerful Vergil.

    Unlike 99% of games, in Ryu Ga Gotoku you play as a guy who is pretty much the coolest, most badass, most likeable character in the world. He's the ultra strong guy with a heart of gold; the suave guy whom everyone wants to be friends with. So following Kazuma through his adventure tends to be extremely satisfying since he's such a great character. [JPN Import]

    Revenant Wings offers some fresh gameplay for the mammoth RPG series and while the dominant RTS element may not be for everyone, it’s certainly been simplified a lot to offer a good 30 entertaining hours or so.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 93 Critic Score
    It’s a flawed great game. The battle system is fast and fun, yet it’s a bit simple and repetitive. The license board provides non-linear character growth, yet there aren’t that many ways to raise the characters. The towns feel alive and outdo anything to date, yet the dungeons feel all too similar and repetitive. [JPN Import]

    This is Soul Calibur at its best. Any fan of Soul Calibur is going to love this game, I am assured of that.

    The game is reckless, shameless fun.

    Oh and if you were wondering about the sound, well it’s amazingly just as polished as the graphics.

    With great core gameplay, tons of unlockables, a cast of memorable characters, and an audio visual feast for the senses, Super Princess Peach is a must play. [JPN Import]

    One of the major new additions to the series that really sets Double Agent apart from the rest is the branching storyline. Not only is the story eons better than the past games in both presentation and writing, but you actually get to change the course of what happens for better or worse.

    The game provides the perfect amount of depth mixed with some of the best visuals seen on a console and tops them off a whole lot of fun. At budget price, Table Tennis is a game that should be in every X360 owner’s library.

    An extremely fun game. The gameplay is unique and plays fairly well, the cast is fantastic, and the visuals do the job. It’s filled with the addicting gameplay of the SMT series, yet provides a different enough type of game that it doesn’t feel like more of the same. [JPN Import]

    The game also has a high level of replayability because everytime you play any of the stages, the shapes and enemies never come out in the same sequence or places. Plus, you can always try to rack up your top score and get a better rank in each of the stages. A must have PSP title with a fun presentation. [JPN Import]

    A game that stays true to the Castlevania series. [JPN Import]

    Isn’t it about time we stop judging graphics solely on realism and clarity and take a look at the visual continuity and overall artistic craftsmanship? Extremely skilled artists worked day and night for years to create this world and they definitely succeeded in every way.

    Although Guilty Gear Judgment was recently released in the U.S., it's well worth paying a little more to get the import, since the U.S. version contains Guilty Gear XX #Reload, the previous entry, instead of Guilty Gear XX Slash.

    The graphics of GoW II are just as beautiful as ever with some of the best art direction in a game to date.

    It plays mostly like the first, so if you liked it you’ll love this one.
