    Rocksteady Studios has done it again. It may not be perfect, but it has taken it's predecessor's place as the best superhero game of all time. One of the best that this year has to offer.

    Had Namco Bandai polished the controls in Go Vacation and slapped a $29 price tag on the box, I'd recommend a used copy. Unfortunately, the game is not something worth playing.

    inFAMOUS: Festival of Blood is a great title for long-time fans and newcomers to the franchise. It's worth every minute and dollar you spend on it.

    Ace Combat: Assault Horizon, while not especially unique, provides a lot of fun especially during the DFM moments both on and offline. However, most of the game is taken straight from Modern Warfare and its simple controls risks alienating hardcore fans.

    The pets element offers a little spark of nuance in an otherwise dated formula. And the spry animations of the pups and kittens do well to make the game all the more endearing.

    A solid simulation of the sport, PES 2012 is a good addition to the franchise. With a few tweaks, PES could return next year as one of the best soccer games available. For now, it will have to settle as just being a pretty good one.

    Nuclear Dawn is a game that can reach great things if it was put together more coherently. Bugs, balance issues, and an uninspired use of the apocalyptic settings make for a game that feels competent at best and incomplete at its worst.

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

    Overall, this game can be incredibly addicting and frustrating but if you are a huge fan of puzzle games, the $9.99 pricetag could make it worth it.

    Dark Souls is one of the best action-RPGs this generation, as it pulls of the combination of both elements perfectly. It may only be suited for hardcore gamers, but they are given heaven.

    The knuckle-whitening, often horror-infused experiences inside of RAGE are essential to the vernacular of modern shooters. The pretty case they come in is not.

    Spider-Man: Edge of Time is a great game for Spider-Man fans, but if it had varied locales and more engaging combat, it would be a masterpiece. Nevertheless, it paints a very nice picture for the future of Spider-Man games.

    If you're looking for a quick, pick-up-and-play racing game, this is not for you. This game takes patience and attention to detail to play.

    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.

    It's as if Silicon Knights threw together a boring action brawler and slapped the X-Men name on it to sell more copies.

    SSFIV: Arcade Edition brings everything that previous iterations have brought to the table, but with four new characters and some tweaks to the gameplay. Hardcore fighting fans will salivate, but casual fans will wonder.
