    I admire Final Fantasy X's emotional and spiritual depth. There is never a time that we can't feel the pain and the struggles of our heroes.

    Every aspect of this game is outstanding, the concept, level designs, controls, graphics, etc.

    Though UT isn’t supporting the curved surfaces like Quake III, the texture quality is excellent and the lighting is unparalleled.

    This game just became elevated to my personal list of all-time PC favorites.

    The gameplay is fun enough that even after playing a song 20 times, you want to play it 20 more times. No other game makes you feel like you are accurately rocking like Guitar Hero 2.

    Rock Band is about as much fun as one can have making music in a video game. Sure there are a few flaws that prevent this game from a flawless concert, but to pull all these elements together is a remarkable achievement.

    The must-have DS RPG you've like already played through, Chrono Trigger is a thoroughly entertaining game with a lengthy quest, an excellent combat system, an unforgettable soundtrack, likable characters and so much more.

    An excellent sequel to Harmonix's new music franchise.

    The controls are one of the best I have ever seen on an iPhone game; it is so simple and comfortable to use with having a control stick appear anywhere on the screen wherever you place your finger.

    The great graphics, excellent gameplay and intriguing story line will have gamers glued to their GameCube for hours.

    Fusion is so good that if it weren't for the small, unlit screen, you wouldn't even be able to tell that it is a "portable" game.

    Probably the most visually stunning golf title of the year.

    Madden NFL 2005 doesn't really take this game to a whole new level but it does slightly rise above the amazing "ESPN NFL 2K5."

    Street Fighter IV was a marvelous fighter and Super Street Fighter IV only furthers that notion with excellent additions that provide a whole new life to the series that has come full circle with Capcom’s brilliant revival.

    Pac-Man Championship Edition DX is one of the finest games of 2010. It has wit. It has flavor. Most importantly, it has style.

    It doesn't get much better than when four people all come together and score a five star on a really rocking song (like Spoonman). This is gaming bliss.

    The game animation is some of the best around and the commentary is spot-on, not to mention the fact that you get the no-holds-barred studio analysis.

    This is by far one of the best games I have come across, it is beautiful to look at, fantastic to listen to, and a TOTAL BLAST to play!

    If you love rock ‘n roll, then Guitar Hero will light up your face with the goofiest grin you are likely to have had in some time. This is a challenging game, no doubt, but it is – simply stated – a blast!

    While the majority of the content is geared towards higher-level players, there is still a lot of fantastic content for any WoW gamer. If you’re a fan, then there’s no reason that you should not have this expansion.

    Takes all the best elements from the past three games and polishes them to a blinding shine.

    I can’t think of the last time I sat down to play a game and I smiled so much that my face actually started to hurt. That’s what Klonoa 2: Lunatea’s Veil did for me.

    While the ingenuity level is a bit low, the way everything comes together is great. There are so many fun weapons to use, the control is tight, levels are fun to tromp through, and everything else doesn't hurt.

    If you've never played RE before, the remake will scare you to death. And if you have played through it before, it still will scare you to death! Maybe not as much, but you will jump out of your seat at least once -- I guarantee it.

    The dev team seems to be on the right track to bringing a realistic and compelling game – rife with the vagaries of the sport – to the PS3. A few mechanics need to be addressed, but for FIFA fans, this is a solid game.

    Assassin's Creed II is more than a great sequel because it does things the first game couldn't even hope to accomplish. There are tons of surprises in store, so if you enjoyed the original – or even if you only kind of liked it – this is one of those sequels that absolutely must be played.

    Snake Eater isn't a breakthrough game for PS2 like "Sons of Liberty" was, but the graphics are still jaw-dropping. The lighting, shadow and weapon/explosion effects are unbelievable.

    Owners of the Wii that have never played RE4 before should make this game an instant purchase.

    Groundbreaking camera system, amazing soundtrack, perfect visuals, and controls that are unique but obviously from the developers of "ICO." The technology that makes it all come together is baffling.

    The graphics in Splinter Cell are unsurpassed. The lighting effects are incredible, the character models look great, and the animations are realistic.
