    With its thoroughly addictive gameplay and meticulous attention to detail, largely manages to meet, and even surpass, gamers' high expectations for this ambitious game.

    The deeper single-player and improved multiplayer modes makes Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 the most tightly-packed installment in the series to date, and the slightly refined gameplay is still unmatched in the GameCube's action sports arena.

    It is a masterclass in pure, unadulterated action-game design, where its insane eye-popping visuals meld effortlessly with some of the sharpest, most joyful combat to have ever graced a video game.

    It's that intoxicating path of discovery that makes Overwatch so varied, so rewarding, and ultimately another seminal release from developer Blizzard. Overwatch is an intelligent cascade of disparate ideas, supporting one another, pouring into one another, and coiling around themselves as they flow into the brilliant shooter underneath.

    Xbox One owners should have no reason to bemoan the way the game looks: it’s beautiful on all of its platforms.

    Because of its airtight gameplay, awesome visuals, and great soundtrack, Klonoa 2 is an almost perfect platform game--almost.

    Destined to be a classic. This is one of those simulations that reminds you why you love the genre. It has all the fidelity, immersion, playability, polish, and graphical splendor that enriched classics like "Red Baron," "Aces over the Pacific," "Falcon 3.0," and "European Air War."

    One of the best space sims ever made and is a solid candidate for game of the year.

    (The designers have) managed to balance strict tennis rules with forgiving arcade-style gameplay and have created a wonderfully solid release.

    Fitting a team-based shooter into a platformer might not seem like a great fit at first, but when taken as a total package, Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal is a truly great game.

    With the exception of the dated control scheme, Capcom has nearly perfected its craft and created the best Resident Evil ever.

    FIFA 10 offers the best gameplay in the series' history and includes even more features and game modes to boot.

    Assassin's Creed II is what you'd want an action sequel to be: bigger, better, and more beautiful.

    The mechanics of Metal Gear Solid 3 can be just as confounding as the storyline--but also just as rewarding, especially once you reach some of the game's memorable, dramatic confrontations. In short, this is a great game that embodies both the impressive style and the one-of-a-kind spirit of its predecessors.

    • 95 Critic Score
    Not only the best in the series, but it also manages to be the best car combat game ever created and one of the best PlayStation 2 games currently available.

    • 85 Critic Score
    Simply a smart game, bursting with great touches.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    It's an extremely well-made game that offers a lot of fun to the player, but these few factors cause it to score right outside the class of "Super Mario 64" and "Banjo-Kazooie," so it only gets very, very high marks, instead of outrageously high marks.

    What's amazing is that, despite how different each hero is, they clash, interact, and cooperate in compelling matches.

    This is the definitive version of a modern classic and a must-play, even if you've already experienced the unique thrill of Resident Evil 4 on another platform.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    The game's fighting and pacing are in stark contrast to those of typical action games, but with a little patience and a taste for high-concept adventure, you'll find an experience here that's unlike any other.

    With Forza Horizon 3, Turn 10 and Playground Games affirm the series’ status as the driving game for everyone The new emphasis on off-road options isn’t at the expense of traditional races, thanks to the sheer volume of activities. All the while, Playground Games’ calculated kitchen-sink design philosophy and rich reward system persistently tempt you to explore beyond your comfort zone, whether it’s gifting your first Ariel Nomad buggy or reminding you that stunt races can impress thousands of fans. Enhancing your own brand might feel like a strange motivation to hit the road, but pulling off sick e-drifts on a mile-long series of curves makes the PR work worthwhile.

    Borderlands 2 doesn't reach far beyond its predecessor's scope, but it does do almost everything better. Additions, refinements, and fixes all combine to create an appreciably improved experience, one that fully delivers on the promise of the first game.

    In some ways it's even better than the original version. In most ways, though, it's exactly the same.

    A college football fan's dream. There are so many different features in the game, and the dynasty mode is so deep, that it's almost overwhelming.

    Kentucky Route Zero is not, in any sense, a typical adventure game. It's an incredible one.

    Crysis is visually stunning, packed with intelligent, thrilling gameplay, and easily one of the greatest shooters ever made.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 94 Critic Score
    One of the best, most challenging action adventure games ever made. Not only does Ninja Gaiden feature bleeding-edge graphics and sound, it boasts simply the best pure action ever seen in such a game.

    Although it feels a bit like God of War: Lite, Chains of Olympus delivers a great, combat-heavy adventure with excellent production values.

    Looks simply amazing. The animation is smooth, but the character models are what really stand out.
