    Crackdown does everything right and doesn't let the narrative (which assails you at every turn) get in the way of the fun - and there's plenty of fun to be had.

    It is by far the best single player action experience you are going to find on the PS2 this year - and the best Resident Evil game since "Resident Evil 2."

    For those that stick around, however, Mount & Blade Warband remains every bit the gem of a game that its predecessor was; more so, actually.

    Truly, every Wii gamer should take a look at this package. Each game is good enough to stand alone for the asking price – packaging all three together was a rare and wonderful move on Nintendo’s part.

    With all that is found through out Scarface: The World is Yours, there is a huge amount of things to do and more action than you can shake a stick at.

    It has been a while since I've had so much pure joy while playing a game.

    Plants vs. Zombies is an immensely fun and wonderfully imaginative strategy game that makes for one of the most enjoyable experiences of the year.

    This is easily the most satisfying and wildly entertaining one-on-one brawler I’ve played on a console.

    In releasing this DLC, Gearbox and 2K have done what seems to be so difficult for other studios: drop a well designed, value laden expansion pack in a timely manner.

    Well "Project Gotham Racing 3" is still king of the hill in the simulation category, but for overall racing fun, you cannot beat Burnout Revenge. In a smiles-per-mile analysis, it comes in first place every time.

    I can only hope that soon you can come here and take part in the fun. I will warn you though, that once you do, you won't want to leave.

    It may be a little out of left field, but if you have love for puzzles, platformers, or excellent blob-based fantasy realms, you’ll almost certainly enjoy it. The Wii needs more games like this one.

    If BioShock ends up being yet another critically acclaimed game that the general public ignores then we’re all wasting our time writing reviews in the first place. Folks, this is just about as good as it gets.

    Outland is an outstanding game, easily one of the best examples of its genre to emerge on the console download services. I think it's a far better, more dynamic game than something more single-minded style-over-substance games such as Limbo or Braid.

    No matter how you look at it this game rocks. It offers the action-style of "Wind Waker" with light character & weapon building, world building and a handful of mini-games and quests that make it an RPG experience that PS2 owners shouldn't pass up.

    Animal Crossing tends to take over your imagination and you start wondering what is happening in your town at all hours of the day and night, because life never stops in Animal Crossing. Be warned, it can become an obsession.

    This really is strategy gaming at its very best and you'd be doing yourself a disservice if you skipped it. It's that good.

    An early Christmas present from Monolith and it is some violent and vicious online action that looks absolutely gorgeous, although players will need a pretty hefty gaming rig to experience it in all its glory.

    An unparalleled, one-of-a-kind experience that represents the very best that gaming has to offer.

    Valve has put together an impressive package that demands your attention. Now you just need to clear your schedule until late March to fully enjoy it all.

    Longtime fans of the series will appreciate not just the massive improvements to customization and gameplay mechanics, but in the little changes as well.

    Although there may be times throughout the game where you will feel as though things are getting repetitive and drawn out, the play gets changed up at the right times and gives you a refreshing perspective to keep you going.

    Kingdoms breathes fresh life into the Total War franchise, just when it needs it most.

    The game is amazingly well-crafted-the only negative is that unless you have room on your memory card to install a good chunk of game data, you'll be sitting through some halting combat transitions and some unbearable load times.

    The lesson here is that just because the license is for kids, the game doesn't have to be. There’s a reason this sort of gameplay has been around for over 25 years: it works, whether you’re a green squirrel or an @. And Pokemon Mystery Dungeon is the game to prove it.

    For anyone who has any interest in classic video games, this is a must-buy. If you just want a bunch of great pick-up-and-play games for your GBA that will sorely test your hand-eye coordination, this is a must-buy. If you don't want to look like a punk with no appreciation of the roots of video gaming, this is a must-buy.

    Speaking for myself, I'd rather play through Cave Story again five times than have a second run through the tedious and dated Ocarina of Time, and discovering this game's unique world in a new 3D format has been surprisingly rewarding. It may very well be the 3DS' best game to date.

    Nothing gets the gamer closer to experiencing the epic battles of Star Wars than this game.

    Regardless of its brevity, price, or minor frustrations, this is one of the best games currently available on Xbox Live Arcade. It's also one of the most essential must-play experiences this generation.
