    In the end, Hitman: Blood Money does come out on top as the best title in the series. Blood Money makes up for most of its faults and shortcomings by offering a load of new features and entirely new ways of completing mission objectives.

    In the end, it's more of the same with some added critters. If you're hankerin' for a batch of Pokemon on the DS, pick it up. If you haven't beaten the other versions, though, you may want to go the cheaper route.

    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.

    The best MMO launch experience I've had since the days of Ultima Online.

    In the end, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance is a nice refresher from the X-Men Legends series, and a game no comic fan should miss. If you enjoy the arcade-style titles of this nature (such as Gauntlet or the previous Legends titles), you'd also do well to pick the game up.

    Despite the repetitive nature of the core game, being able to scale rooftops and blow everything to smithereens is more than enough to compensate for these problems.

    An entirely new land to explore AND some of the most original environments in an Elder Scrolls game? Yes, please.

    The nature of the open-ended gameplay still makes for memorable random and not-so-random occurrences you'll repetitiously be reciting to friends, but for the most part it's nothing we haven't seen before.

    Puzzle Quest is just plain great. If you own a PSP, you need Puzzle Quest.

    DiRT is a great rally racer for anyone who enjoys the thrill of this sport. It is also an excellent racer at its core, and thanks to an amazingly deep damage system and graphical appeal, you should definitely sink your teeth into DiRT.

    An epic game with a dark twist. Fans of games like Oblivion should have no problem spending a long time on this one.

    Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy is a winner, and deserves a second Alliance Medal of Honor. May the Force be with you -- always.

    In the end, despite a few minor flaws and annoyances, Dead Rising is easily one of the best games of the year, and I haven't had as much fun playing a video game in a long, long time.

    Mega Man ZX may suffer from a few cosmetic flaws, and it may be widely regarded as one of the most difficult in the franchise, but it would be a huge mistake for anyone to discount this game based on such small factors given how incredibly solid the gameplay is.

    The bottom line is this: Tomb Raider Anniversary is a great game. It's perfect for any Tomb Raider fans or just fans of the action/adventure genre alone.

    Microsoft's Flight Simulator franchise has been in the running for over 25 years, and the latest game, Flight Simulator X, improves on several concepts, and also unveils the most glorious visuals in a flight simulator ever, earning the title "The Biggest Game I Ever Had to Install."

    From a technical standpoint, DEFCON may be an outdated game, especially compared to some of the current powerhouse offerings. But from an artistic point of view, the game,s brilliantly designed and really evokes a certain set of emotions.

    If you enjoy Tetris, Bejeweled, Lumines, Meteos and all of their puzzle ilk, then you will most definitely want to add Gunpey to your collection.

    An excellent RTS game. Even though the gameplay is still relatively the same, that doesn't mean you shouldn't miss out on the story, exciting action, and ultimately the overall fun experience from the entire game.

    t's a marvel to behold, a lot of fun, and the very pinnacle of WWII simulators.

    Hands down, Dark Crusade is a hell of an expansion. It adds even more longevity to the Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War franchise, and really opens up the creativity behind all 7 factions.

    This is another very solid entry into the Castlevania series, and is one of the best games of the year. But where is the innovation?

    Despite the penalties for dying, and the occasional boring quest or tedious running. Guild Wars is an excellently planned and executed MMORPG. It has the mass appeal of NOT costing you money every month.
