    There is so much to like and so little to dislike this year, that if given a chance, I can't see how any true football fan can't find a way to experience Madden football this year and have nothing but a good time.

    Even if you’ve played "Burnout 3" 'til you had blisters on your fingers, there is plenty of new and exciting tracks, cars, and features that will peak your interest once again.

    A highly addicting and energetic title that is satisfying in single and multiplayer.

    The painstaking detail in the architecture is a huge draw in making the game as believable as it is. Everything looks exactly how you would envision it in real life, with hallways, open areas, offices, courtyards, everything modeled correctly.

    The game is fun, consistent, accurate and is, in every way, baseball. Over the course of nine innings and several seasons, it's clear that Konami knows baseball better than any other developer.

    You'll have a hard time finding an arcade or combat racer that is anywhere close to being able to catch up to WipEout HD and when you factor in the price WipEout HD is in a league of its own.

    The world it presents is gorgeous, with some one of the most technically and aesthetically pleasing visuals we've seen thus far. Meanwhile, the revised and expanded battle system injects additional strategy while eliminating the issues that bogged down the previous game.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my trek through the games' magical world, and the only thing keeping this title from achieving an A rating is that it shares the common problem with most RPG's today: once it's over, it's over.

    It's one of the better reasons to own the system at this point, and certainly a lot of fun to play.

    The single player game is very good, better than most. The multiplayer online experience of Tides of War, though, is nothing short of spectacular.

    Sucker Punch seems to have found the ideal blend of enjoyable, super power-infused gameplay, stylishly striking visuals, and an open world sandbox setting.

    Unmechanical: Extended won't blow too many people away, but I don't think anyone can doubt its heart is in the right place.

    The opportunity to fight using Star Trek ships is something that all Trekkies should salivate over.

    You simply must listen to the game via headphones to truly appreciate the audio. This game in particular makes great use of stereo separation.

    Sly 3 manages to take several types of gameplay and present them together in one cohesive package. What Sly 3 lacks in innovation, it makes up in the sheer amount of gameplay that it possesses.

    It's often funny, addictive, and surprisingly good to look at, and the wide appeal that this franchise has tacked on with the already wide appeal that LEGO in general has is sure to make this something that fans of either property won't want to pass up.

    It might be hard to tear yourself away from Smash Bros., but Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker makes for an excellent holiday diversion.

    It's the most fun I've had on my GameCube so far, with the notable exception of "Animal Crossing."

    The fantastic setting and light RPG elements really pull you in, and the customizations, challenging game play and new online multiplayer modes will keep you coming back for more. It's definitely worth it to book a trip back to Rapture.

    Dragon's Crown has a lot to offer, from building one of the finest co-op games this generation, to leaving one nagging issue for us critics to nitpick in the lack of cross-play support. It's one of the prettiest games around, the addictive structure of the game compliments how many hours can be sunk in (with friends or on your own), and there's even some PvP stuff for anyone who really wants to put their money where their mouth is. Even the music is charming.

    Overall Dragon Age: Origins is fantastic, and is a must play for any fan of the genre. Doubly so since it readily promotes multiple play throughs. It's the player that controls the game more than the story , so everyone can look forward to spending endless hours in a wonderfully fleshed out fantasy realm.

    No Going Back delivers a satisfying conclusion to the season, while still leaving the door open just enough to keep you guessing at what comes next. Your bond to Clementine, and to the new and old characters from this season, feels as strong as ever in the final episode. Just keep in mind that nobody makes it out of Season 2 unscathed.

    If you're looking for something that will kick your ass yet keep you coming back for more, look no further than Dark Souls.

    The default difficulties are done so well that you'll have to play a lot to even consider going into the slider screen.

    The framerate remains solid throughout, and seeing a giant tsunami rip through the world and completely submerge it is very impressive.

    Between the plotting, level design, and gameplay, Tomb Raider: Legend does an admirable job of rescuing the franchise. Crystal Dynamics have torn down the franchise, consulted with the creator, and rebuilt it from the ground up as something significantly different…Something great.

    It makes the strongest argument yet for bringing over this style of gameplay to the motion control set up, and does a good job of washing out the horrible taste that titles like Red Steel and Far Cry might have left for early Wii adopters.

    Brilliant! No matter what you call the sport, no matter which side of the pond you reside, it can't be denied that this year FIFA 12 is the best game of football around.
