    The Williams Collection works as a digital museum to preserve these games for future generations, but also reminds today’s gamers of just how much fun it can be to bounce a metal ball around inside a flashing, chiming cabinet. It’s an excellent collection of some amazing games from an era of electronic entertainment long since past.

    Somewhat linear, but boasts a lot of eye candy and solid gameplay. This is a good title in solo play, but much better in cooperative game play.

    Last year's iteration was great, but the three new tables give the PS3 and Xbox 360 version the edge. If you don't already own Pinball Hall of Fame: The Williams Collection for another console, don't hesitate to buy it now.

    It gives you an absolutely enemy-free island to play around and raise your new baby chicken, covered in new, fun trials, creatures, and spells. I have to admit that I am a little disappointed in the lack of content, though.

    One of the best games of the year on any system.

    Most of the things that made the first game so great has been taken out to make the Warrior Within a darker combat oriented game.

    It not only possesses all the things we love about the adventure genre but it redefines it to the point that its interactive storytelling really does gives us hope that there are gamers that appreciate substance in their games.

    Basketball in its most realistic, exciting, and entertaining form. The controls and seamless player interactions make NBA 2K8 an instant showstopper – deep gameplay and high replay value provide the longevity you’ve come to expect (and demand) from 2K Sports.

    There are a few moments where you might be left scratching your head about AI decisions, and the audio can be off target, on occasion, but this is the best looking Madden game to date and the new elements really give players the opportunity to learn and grow in the game.

    Even though the combat has some minor issues, there is still a lot of depth and engaging gameplay to be experienced in DISSIDIA.

    With World Adventures, the Sims 3 receives one of its greatest expansions. If you’re a fan of the original, there’s little doubt that you’ll want this in your collection.

    With it’s mixing of genres and brilliant story, Shenmue II is an unforgettable experience.

    This is a beautiful game that is easy to pick up and play and should be accessible to anyone in the family. The game may falter in terms of replayability, but the levels have been designed to bring a true emotional feeling to the game through the use of lighting and music.

    The main problem with this game is that it is extremely unreliable when players try to connect to the multiplayer service. This is a shame because this is where the majority of player’s time will be spent. Hopefully this flaw will be fixed as this game is a blast to play!

    This game can get hard really quick. If players do not pay attention to all of the in game menus, tips, and book they will be left without a clue on what to do.

    While it is pricey, the new world you get to explore adds more RPG gaming goodness and enough quests to make this yet another juicy chapter in this already lengthy epic.

    A nice package with solid upgrades and great new lands to explore. Echoes of Faydwer does what an expansion should, right down the line.

    The game’s battle system allows for some truly ‘tactical’ confrontation, in which you can win (assuming you play well) when out numbered and out leveled.

    Sadly, there wasn’t much effort put into the graphics--which would have made this the leading baseball title available--but there is always next year’s High Heat to look forward too.

    This game is for the hack and slash fan who enjoys a lot of action with their RPG titles vs. a lot of story and character stuff which is a definite 180 turn from the MMORPG style that EQ is commonly known for.

    To the diehard fans, those who love soccer and/or can't go through a year without playing the latest FIFA, this is a must-buy.

    Surprisingly, the game’s controls are not at all complicated to figure out, in fact, they‘re a dream come true.

    One of those truly original games that, while a tad liberal in the innovation department, manages to keep you entertained all the way through thanks to one of the best battle systems ever to grace an RPG..., a Now and Then, Here and There-esque anime-influenced presentation, and some of the most challenging moments a hardcore RPG gamer could hope for.

    A beautifully composed role-playing game that is delightfully unique experience for those who appreciate a game that’s wildly imaginative.

    Rugby fans, EA Sports have finally given us a great game worthy of the hard-hitting European sport. EA Sports Rugby 06 not only looks like a realistic game of rugby but it also plays like a dream.

    With a bevy of options, some tweaking to the kicking mechanics (almost to the point where you think you are playing golf with the kicker’s leg), and all the other accoutrements in the game modes, EA’s NCAA Football 07 is a joyful gridiron game.

    What self-respecting Tolkien fan can be without this title? While the game does have a few stumbling points, this is a well-done RTS that enables players to experience the turmoil of the fantasy world, or just to create their own legacy within this fantastic realm.

    If you own an Xbox and want a truly unique game that is not overly violent then Phantom Dust is just what your doctor ordered!

    It is graphically very nice, has solid sound and has addicting gameplay. Much fun to be had here, with the entertainment factors far outweighing the few flaws the game has.

    Gamers who enjoy a more action oriented RTS title without a lot to worry about other than fighting and capturing strategic areas will definitely have a great time with it, regardless of having an in depth knowledge of the Warhammer universe prior to picking it up.

    For those who missed out on FlatOut 2 for the original Xbox, FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage for the Xbox 360 is a wonderful upgraded port that not only looks great but handles beautifully as well.
