    Overall, Rock Band 3 does a great job of refining the music game experience while at the same time pushing it forward by blurring the line between playing a music game and actually playing music.

    All in all Rock Band is thoroughly enjoyable experience and could easily become one of the top party games of 2008

    Some people might become bored with it once the novelty wears off. However, the game has inspired a very loyal following on the internet, so it definitely has a long-term appeal among many gamers.

    If there is a knock against Forza Motorsports it's that the game does not have much personality. The racing is great and the cars look sweet, but there's not much going on in between.

    If you haven't experienced The Sims before, now's your chance. This bundle will provide you with plenty of gameplay and introduce you to the enjoyable addiction that The Sims can be.

    A lot of gameplay modes and some pretty darn good football to boot; you can't go wrong with Madden NFL 2003.

    A beauty to behold and play. The AI may prove to be too great a challenge for some beginning players, though. Otherwise, there is very little I can find to complain about. This is a genuinely well-designed, fun to play game that stands out from most of the other games out there.

    If for some reason you didn’t like the original Guitar Hero, then there’s probably nothing new here that will change your mind about the game. For everyone else, new songs, new animations, and the new practice and co-op modes make Guitar Hero II a no-brainer.

    Rock Band was just the opening act. Rock Band 2 is the real headliner.

    It is just one great mission in a series of great missions that provide players with a thoroughly enjoyable and immersive gaming experience. If you ever wanted to be a part of a great war story, Medal of Honor: Allied Assault is a must.

    If you enjoy pinball, or are just curious about the game, Pinball FX2 is as close as you can get to the real thing.

    I can sum it all up in one sentence: If you’re a gamer and a fan of rock music, then you owe it to yourself to play this game.

    The sound in the game is also phenomenal. The sound is so well done that you can sit still and listen, and you'll be able to tell the direction that guards' footsteps are coming from and whether or not they are coming towards you.

    To really enjoy the game in all it's glory, though, you'll need to play it in dynasty mode.

    Crysis has a lot going for it, even though you'll need a pretty powerful computer to get the full experience. It does have its shortcomings though, and among other things I think that it may prove to be pretty frustrating for casual gamers and that a fair number of gamers won't be too pleased with the endgame.

    God of War: Chains of Olympus is hands-down one of the best PSP games available.

    If you have a high level character, it’s hard to find a reason for you not to buy The Burning Crusade. An entirely new continent filled with great content and with some really imaginative zones to explore make the expansion a must buy.
