    All in all, this is an excellent, fully featured rendition of one of the best Dynasty Warriors games on the market.

    On the most critical point, however, Velocity 2X hasn't changed: it's still an awesome game, and it's still absolutely worth your time. Half of it may be borrowed from Futurlab's previous game, but half of it isn't, and those two halves add up to make one heck of an experience.

    By objective measures, Counterspy may be a little lacking, but in my subjective opinion, there aren't many games I've enjoyed more this year.

    It's a deeply disturbing game, but it's also a very fun one, and it's a testament to the latter that even someone as painfully wussy as me when it comes to anything gory or horror-ish is able to completely ignore the former.

    Even with that similarity, though, Teslagrad still has a look and a feel all its own — which, as I said up top, is what helps set it apart from all those other great puzzle-platformers. At the same time, though, as much as that sets it apart from the likes of Braid, Fez and more, it also places Teslagrad alongside them, as one of the really phenomenal examples of the genre.

    When all is said and done, Pinball FX2 for the Xbox One is easily the best version of the franchise thanks to its new interface — even if you have to deal with a hiccup or two when importing your titles.

    Outside of the vast amount of content, another big feather in Forza Horizon 2’s cap is how damn beautiful this world looks. Draw distance is incredible, environment pop-in is kept to a minimum, and the weather effects are stunning. Driving haphazardly through fields at night in the rain is a sight to see, and there’s nary a technical hiccup to be found.

    Needless to say, I really, really enjoyed Hyrule Warriors. As a fan of musou-style games, and as a lifelong Zelda fan, there’s a lot to love here.

    All I can say is that this is what Mario Kart 64 should have been. Awesome.

    A masterful game. It is a game with non-stop action and can be pretty tough at times. All of this is combined with just enough of a brainwork requirement to make this game more interactive, hence more enjoyable.

    The framerate and action more than makes up for the slightly less than average graphics. This is a title that no self-respecting N64 owner should pass up. Nintendo has created the first true N64 classic since Mario 64.

    This is a title that no self-respecting N64 owner should pass up. Nintendo has created the first true N64 classic since "Mario 64."

    Not only are the graphics stunning, they are actually the reason the game is at the top of it's class in play mechanics.

    Featuring unparalleled 3D environments, a deep and involved quest, brilliant and intuitive play controls, and a well-developed cinematic quality that enhances rather than overwhelms the whole game experience, Miyamoto's latest soon-to-be-classic title deserves to be played by each and every person who might deign to consider themselves a fan of great games.

    Parasite Eve has been one of the only RPGs since Final Fantasy 7 to genuinely deserve any kind of hype, or at least anticipation.

    Barking Dog's attention to detail and their sincere desire to improve almost every aspect of the original has resulted in an extremely solid title that easily stands up to any real-time strategy game released this year. I am impressed.

    I have been playing MW4 ever since the beta came out around a month ago, and I still don't think I will be putting it down for a while. MW 4 has everything that MW 3 failed to offer.

    It looks great, and more importantly, it plays great.

    A surreal Viking-inspired experience that turns itself into is a somewhat simple hack 'n slash action game, but a very, very fun one, at that.

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

    The commraderie, exciting combat, and RPG elements make Shattered Galaxy an incredibly unique and addictive game, able to take parts from other strategy titles and turn them into something that feels completely fresh.

    To be blunt, I haven't been this addicted to one single game in a long time.

    FIFA not only sports fantastic controls, but beauty to go along with it's other two outings ("Madden" and "NHL"). Is it just as good as the other two? You betcha!

    Tecmo has gone the extra mile by including tons of extras in addition to the already spectacular gameplay and graphics that was already there.

    The game also has replay value up the wazoo. Not only do you get to storm through 25 levels of insanity, but you have many extras to unlock as well.

    This game is all around faster (than "Madden 2001") which makes the controls feel even tighter.

    NBA 2K2 has set the bar for the rest of those basketball titles. No one has even come close to capturing the fundamentals of the game like this series does.

    One of the best NASCAR games I've ever played. With a full 43-car field displayed, the atmosphere of NASCAR racing is front and centre, drawing you in from the get go.

    A shining example of bringing together a wide variety of different ideas, executing them with a ever-engaging style, and delivering a polished product that is a thrilling experience from beginning to end.

    The control is spot-on, player ratings make a huge difference in checking, skating and passing, and it just feels like real on-ice action. ESPN NHL 2K4 has ironed out most of the wrinkles from last year, and turned the presentation up to 11 - you won't find a better playing, better looking, or better sounding hockey game available.
