    For $40 you get an HD version of two of the best action-adventure games ever made. There's almost nothing to complain about here, so just go buy it and enjoy yourself.

    This game is a must-have for fans of the series, but keep away if you haven't been fond of the first two. While new features are lacking, overall refinement and polish make this game great in almost every respect.

    The single player campaign may be on the short(er) side, but the entire journey is action-packed and adrenaline pumping without any noticeable downtime. And the multiplayer may not offer all of the different modes some gamers are used to, but Warzone's unique customization capabilities offset that nicely.

    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.

    People who want a light hearted racing game will love MarioKart DS. The more hardened racing fan may think it is too simple, but MarioKart DS makes up for this with its entertaining game play and different game modes.

    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.

    Developer Visual Concepts chose to focus on minor tweaks and adjustments, resulting in the best basketball simulation on the market.

    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.

    From standard Exhibitions to the Ultimate Team card game, everything about FIFA 12 is superb. This is sports gaming excellence personified.

    Easily one of the best games released this year, World of Goo is a game you should not miss.

    More Stone Cold than Easy Rider, and filled with enough pseudo-biker machismo to prove it, TLAD can't escape the vice-like grasp of GTAIV's juvenile form. TLAD consists of minor tweaks, but it's all essentially just more.

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

    As a free download this game is definitely a can't-miss for FPS lovers, and definitely worth a look even for those who might not otherwise take the plunge and pick up a copy of F.E.A.R.

    From beginning to end, it's hard to find something not to like about Portal. Everything from the gameplay to the presentation are top-notch.

    Baseball fans are obsessed with details and the development team behind MLB 11: The Show knows this. No complaint can be made about a lack of depth. Oh, and it's a lot of fun, too!

    The emotion, presentation, story and overall action-packed gameplay cements Episode 2 as an excellent addition in the Half-Life 2 series and PC gaming in general. While playing Episode 2, I never felt detached or alienated from the game.

    LIMBO keeps you sucked into its bleak, grim universe with unique puzzles, simple controls, and an approach to game design Playdead calls "trial and death" gaming for long enough to be effective, but certainly leaves some length to be desired.

    Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood brings to the table so much more than was ever expected. Not only is it perhaps the best in the franchise, but is also an easy Game of the Year candidate.

    The definitive version of Okami despite its combat flaws. The improved Celestial Brush is enough to warrant a purchase.

    Super Meat Boy's difficulty will likely turn off some gamers. But if you like your 2D platformers challenging and rewarding then you'll be hard pressed to find a better game out there.

    Take the multiplayer for what it is -- a fun digression from the enthralling action on The Sprawl -- and DS2 comfortably sits waiting for the other Game of the Year nominees for 2011.

    There are plenty of open-ended games out there, but few really emphasize player choice like Deus Ex: Human Revolution. The result is the follow-up Deus Ex fans have been waiting for and one of the year's best.

    An amazing game. It's almost perfect, and while a few things do pull it back from being that, it's still everything we've been waiting for from the Wii, wrapped in a nice fifty dollar package.

    Simply put, Forza 2 is much more than just another racing simulation on the console; it’s the closest thing to the realization of a racing fan’s dream game that we have ever seen.

    GTR 2 is the best installment thus far in the series, which, for many gamers, will make this the best racing game ever seen on the PC-if not of all time.

    Persona 3 Portable takes the already massive console version of Persona 3 and translates it successfully to the PSP platform, streamlining most of the experience to make a game that is the definitive PSP RPG.

    The brilliance of Rez isn't in some singular quality like graphics, but in the way everything comes together to create an audio and visual interactive experience that is uniquely its own.
