    Persona 3 FES is a lesson to game makers and movie directors on what a repackaging should look like. New features, a much better ending and enough tweaks to fill a Starbucks makes FES a steal at its price.

    FFIV DS is a winner. Not only is it the defining iteration of FFIV, it's one of the greatest remakes ever produced and deserves a permanent spot in every DS owner's collection.

    Madden 09 is the best Madden of this generation. It's the first of the series which feels like it actually belongs on these consoles, and wasn't just ported with prettier graphics.

    Disgaea 3 is easily the best in the Disgaea series, and if you care enough about gameplay, writing, and characters to overlook old-school graphics you're in for quite a treat.

    Lock's Quest proves that it doesn't take a big name or big studio to make a must-buy title which will be a benchmark for years to come.

    On top of the unparalleled graphics that lovingly caress players' retinas from the second they load up the game, and enveloped within a traditional Japanese soundscape, Muramasa delivers steadily enjoyable gameplay from start to finish

    Bayonetta is a fantastic game. Aside from a difficult late game and a wacky, confusing narrative, it manages introduce a deep, fun combat system that is silky smooth and easy to learn.

    Bad Company 2 is a great improvement over the original, and also one of the best FPS of this console generation. The single-player campaign is quite good despite a few minor issues, and the multiplayer will keep FPS fans playing for months on end.

    Capcom fighting fans will not be disappointed by their latest offering, even if half the roster is unknown. Make sure you get to know them, because they're just as good as the Capcom guys.

    Nintendo still knows how to make a damn good Mario game. NSMBW is leaps and bounds over the original DS title, and certainly holds it own against the masterpieces from the days of yore.

    A perfectly solid representation of Zelda. The puzzles are not easy, despite the cartoon appearance of the main character, the characters are interesting, the controls work well, and the story is adequate.

    Coming off of a long session of playing Bully, you could easily feel like that time was spent with a GTA title. But whereas the countless knockoffs have simply tried to recreate that experience, Bully has taken the genre and used it in a completely different mold; it's this extremely fresh take on things that makes it so much fun.

    Shivering Isles is an excellent addition, and any Oblivion fan would be well advised to purchase it. An entirely new land to explore AND some of the most original environments in an Elder Scrolls game? Yes, please.
