    Broken Steel certainly changes the game for the better and is a must buy for all Fallout 3 owners. Even the subtle changes to normal characters in the Wasteland are noticeable such as those slackers in Megaton who complain about the water. Bottom Line is that there is much to explore, must to experience and much to disintegrate in the game and this is why the final score is so high for the expansion.

    Compared to Activision’s other music game franchise, DJ Hero isn’t for everyone since it targets a small specific group of people/gamers: those who have a disc jockey background or those who always dreamt to be one. Regardless of this, we have to applaud Activision’s willingness and audaciousness to introduce a new product. DJ Hero deserves a serious look.

    If games like Pong and Super Mario Bros. managed to pique the interest of mom and dad to play with their kids in the living room, there’s no doubt that The Beatles: Rock Band will make the rest of the family join in and have a great time. Don’t get me wrong, the Guitar Hero and Rock Band games have done great things but I think The Beatles: Rock Band is the ultimate multi-generation gathering videogame.

    Kudos to Playdead for developing what is not only the best Xbox LIVE arcade game this year, but quite possibly one of the best ever to grace the service.

    With its numerous additions and improvements supported by an amazing list of remixes, DJ Hero 2 isn't only an automatic buy for those who loved the first one but also a definitive must have music title for all music genre fans.

    Unless you are one of those gamers who's stuck in a single genre, not willing to play anything outside your comfort zone, the Sly Collection is easily a 'must have' for your library.

    It isn't often a developer puts in this much love when porting over an existing title from another service. But Hello Games did it, and the final result is the best version of Joe Danger to date.

    If you didn't care for the first Trials, this isn't going to change your mind at all. However, if you fell in love with Trials HD back in the summer of 2009, get ready, because you are about to meet the new love of your life!

    By combining realistic physics and incredible detail, CherryPop Games have designed a surefire hit as a first project. Pool Nation makes every other pool game obsolete.

    Warhammer Online is more of a traditional MMORPG then the recently released action based MMO Age of Conan, but with that “traditional” label Warhammer is also one of the most polished MMORPG's gameplay wise at launch.

    One of my favorite World War Two video games on any system, if the couple of glitches were fixed it would be my favorite over Call of Duty on the PC. But for your home console, buy this great game and enjoy it. Hopefully they are working hard (after a vacation) on Brothers in Arms: Battle of the Bulge which is the last big fight the 101st was part of in World War 2.

    Splinter Cell Conviction isn’t the most astonishing game you’ll play but when you put the final product in perspective, there’s no doubt in my mind that Ubisoft Montreal managed to create the second best game in the Splinter Cell franchise.

    Very few games achieve instant classic status, and are as fun and rewarding like World of Goo and in the end those three things make Goo a must buy for those fans who love gaming.

    I couldn’t be more pleased at the progress that Ubi Montreal made and the completely unabashed way they took the criticism to heart of the first AC. They’ve lovingly crafted a set of gameplay systems that not only improved on their first entry, but also rendered it completely obsolete. The game learned from its mistakes the first time around and fought its way back to the top of the pile.

    If you’re a fan of the original, there’s absolutely no reason not to get L4D2. It’s got more of everything that made the first game such a blast to play, and actually manages to make the experience remarkably better.

    Heavy Rain is, without a doubt, one of the most ambitious titles to come out in a long time and delivers on all its promises. This is clearly still a game but could easily pass as a film. We are always given choices in the games we play and Heavy Rain is one you want to choose.

    If you already have played the DS version to death, getting the PSP version may not be a good idea since it’s basically the same game only with a few but noticeable improvements. Now, if you haven’t bought or played the DS version, there’s no way you can pass on what is being offered here. GTA Chinatown Wars for the PSP is a great game that deserves your attention and a place in your collection.

    EA Sports MMA is going to have a lot to live up to when it launches as UFC Undisputed 2010 raises the bar for virtual Mixed Martial Arts. Is it perfect? No, not at all. But, if you put this side-by-side with its predecessor, the differences are like night and day. You could almost go so far as to say that Undisputed 2009 was the trial run and this is the real game.

    A few things keeps NBA 2K11 from being an ultimate realization but there's no way a true basketball fan can overlook this.
