    Like in Hollywood, the real magic in The Movies is in the films you produce and not in the mundane business of making movies.

    Crysis has finally arrived on consoles, albeit starting with the sequel to the game that had PC gamers asking computer store salespeople, "yeah, but will it run Crysis?" The good news is that the Xbox 360 does indeed run Crysis 2, and, in fact, it's easily one of the best looking games to ever appear on the console.

    A top-tier fighter in spite of the best efforts of its lame protagonist.

    Graphically the game is top-notch. The players are animated realistically and there are a lot of nice extra touches such as ball marks on the courts and shadows cast by the lights in night matches.

    Most of this collection is for those who've played these games before, but the Xbox 360 titles alone make it a good value for the cost.

    It has the magical ability to make hours melt away in gaming bliss without the player even really noticing the passage of time.

    Exciting and great looking real-time strategy action. But what happened to the single player campaign?

    Shadow of Mordor is without a doubt the best The Lord of the Rings game that I have ever played, and quite probably the best game I've played this year. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a great action game.

    Overall though, World Tour is a nice evolutionary step for the Guitar Hero franchise, and it's safe to say that if you're a fan of the series you'll enjoy World Tour.

    The BioShock games are one of the top series in gaming, and if you haven't played these games before you owe it to yourself to pick up this collection. Even if you have, it is worth your time to revisit them and play your way through them again. I found that I picked up on new elements and some of the more subtle aspects of the stories the second time through, giving me a greater appreciation for how well-crafted the stories are.

    Resident Evil 5 digs deep into the series' origins with its overall story and slightly enhances the overall addicting gameplay that left its mark with Resident Evil 4

    PSP owners won't have a compelling reason to relive these games in HD unless they're hungry for more trophies, but all other God of War fans should jump at the chance to play these thoroughly enjoyable games on their PS3s.

    Having not played a tennis video game, real tennis match, or watched much of professional tennis, I was able to pick up the mechanics quickly thanks to the training and became addicted to the career mode. But as is the case with all sports games, the longevity relies entirely upon your own interest in the sport. By using basic RPG elements, streamlined gameplay, and having robust options to choose from, Top Spin 4 is an easy choice for tennis fans and non-fans alike.

    Battlefield 3 is still good at what Battlefield has always done best, but the rest of the package is more disappointing than anything else.

    Overall, UFC Undisputed 2010 should please fans of the 2009 version of the game, as well as those who enjoy fighting games that sit at the sim end of the spectrum.

    OK, so it's not a quantum leap forward in gaming, but so what? It's a heck of a lot of fun from the company that defined RTS.

    It gives ME vets everything they wanted in the game's ending, namely a return on beloved characters and some effect on what their choices thus far hath wrought.

    Solid multiplayer action, but brought down a notch by a campaign that just doesn't live up to the hype.

    Early adopters may not even blink an eye at coming back for round 2 but for anyone just coming in they will have one of the best fighting games out there and a ton of unlockable content to look forward to.

    The Devil My Cry series makes a good debut on the Xbox 360, but it comes up a little short of being a truly great game.

    Overall, Episode 2 is worth playing and I enjoyed my time with it. I did find Episode 1 to be more intense overall and better paced, but Episode 2 is certainly good enough to warrant playing it and to have you looking forward to Episode 3.

    Mankind Divided takes all the great ideas from Human Revolution and adds to them, making it just as good as the prior Deus Ex.

    The story is convoluted, the single player is short, the immersion is completely gone and there is little replay value, but Killzone 3 still manages to be great despite its shortcomings. It looks great, it plays great and is one of the better shooters out there. But coming off Killzone 2, part 3 could be considered a letdown.

    F1 2012 isn't without a small amount of bugs and areas to improve on (which Codemasters may have already addressed by the time this hits the site) but whether you're a current owner of an F1 title or are looking to jump in, this year's release is an easy sell.

    Stacking won't appeal to everyone, and if you're not sold on the game's premise at this point then you're probably one of those gamers. If you enjoy adventure-style games and/or something a little unique and different than most games out there, though, you'll probably enjoy your time with Stacking.

    This new MK truly deserves the title "Mortal Kombat" since it feels like a new start for the series in many ways.

    Need for Speed: Most Wanted has every right to be on your most wanted wish list this Christmas.
