    In the end, Okami is a truly great game, and one people have rightfully anticipated for a long time.

    The PS3 version may look and run slightly better, and it may include Knights of the Nine from the get-go, but the status of the expansion is something you have to consider, and the fact that there's really nothing new should convince you to stick with what you have.

    Rock Band 3 is a complete package and quite possibly the definitive music game. Once again, Harmonix defines and sets the bar for what the music genre can achieve. It will be hard pressed for anyone, Harmonix included, to top this game.

    Call of Duty 4 offers an excellent gaming package with a thrilling campaign and addicting multiplayer action. It contains everything you would want in a FPS, and the game doesn't lack any polish, either.

    It's not perfect, but it's a satisfying experience from start to finish. Amazing to look at, fun to play and a great ending.

    The best way to play air guitar ever conceived. It's only a coincidence that it just so happens to be the most fun rhythm game ever made, to boot.

    Uncharted 3 isn't quite as memorable as its predecessor, but that doesn't mean it isn't one of the best games to come out this year.

    Rock Band is a must-have game. It's fun for even the most musically challenged, and it's a great game to play with friends and family. It may have a steep price tag, but you get more than your money's worth.

    Capcom has done much more than slap on a few new characters and push the game out the door. They've taken the original title, reconstructed it, and produced a game that surpasses the original Street Fighter IV in every way possible.

    The action is fast-paced and furious, the game's presentation is hilarious and exciting and the gameplay is very easily approachable. Experiment with a few classes or stick with one, but do anything to get your hands on TF2. It'll be an online experience you won't forget.

    As the last Final Fantasy of the current-gen, it delivers as the best of the bunch. An epic story, incredible characters, slightly-innovated battle system and some of the best graphics seen on the PS2 add up for an incredible journey any RPG fan shouldn't miss out on.

    This is the must-have Batman game of all-time and a great third-person action game. Whether you're a fan or just looking for a solid game, you should pick this up. You will not be dissappointed.

    In the end, Guitar Hero II is basically the same game as Guitar Hero, but with a much higher difficulty and a completely revamped multiplayer mode.

    It doesn't drastically shake up the formula, but it does come one step closer to perfecting it.

    Team Ico has set the bar for many aspects of this industry, and it now can claim a new title: the Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection is the gold standard in game collections. This is the way to bring classics back to life.

    Media Molecule has practically perfected user-generated content for consoles. An improved story mode, increase in creation tools, and focus on community features make this a must-have for PlayStation 3 owners.

    FIFA 10 is an all-around winner, and one of the greatest virtual translations of association football to ever grace videogame consoles.

    ACII so satisfyingly delivers upon every aspect first laid out in its prequel, as well as many new gameplay elements and non-gameplay additions that transcend the medium, that it is difficult to offer anything but praise for this superb title.

    The best version of RE4 yet. It may not be worth the price for longtime RE4 players, but it's a blast for newcomers, or people who didn't play the other versions to death.

    Overall, Shadow of the Colossus is equal parts puzzle and action. Figuring out how to defeat each Colossus is as rewarding, if not more rewarding, than actually defeating the beast itself. This is a gaming masterpiece.

    As cool as it can get, Crysis has some issues and bugs that should have been stamped out or fixed on the drawing board. At times you'll be amazed, and at other times you'll wonder, "How did this make it through?"

    Is it as good as the two PS2 God of War games? Not quite, but it's close. The fact that a PSP port of God of War can be this close to the legendary originals is amazing.

    High production values, attention to detail, and an incredible number of features and options jam-packed into the shiny package. With adjustments to pitching and hitting, MLB 11 could be perfect, but for now, MLB 10 is just the best.

    It's the arcade/arena/vehicle/sci-fi shooter of this generation, no doubt. Any Halo fan without Reach misses out on what's sure to be a great addition to their library. A game changer, however, it is not.

    Don't pass on this one. It's more of an experience than a game, and if you own an Xbox 360 it's an experience that absolutely cannot be missed.

    Some of Forza Motorsport 4 feels like retread ground, but there are enough improvements to classify this entry as the best in the franchise.
