    Half-Life 2, simply put, is a complete masterpiece; once again, the definition of what gaming is all about. Shame on you if you haven’t already played it. Loser.

    Is it the best RPG on the PS2? You bet.

    They’ve gone above and beyond my expectations of any FPS game.

    An absolute must-buy for anyone into Greek mythology or who enjoys the action/adventure genre. It’s beautiful, plays smoothly, is absolutely epic, and will please anyone with a taste for a dark atmosphere.

    The graphics, sound, and gameplay all set benchmarks that other developers will attempt to surpass.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 96 Critic Score
    Despite the fact that it plays just like its previous incarnations, the ballooned number of cars and the sheer amount of things to do easily makes this version the best of the bunch.

    As far as actual content goes, I don’t think there’s been a game in history with more, so you almost need to own this game just so you can see how packed a game can be.

    The only thing I need to say about the graphics is that they're perfect. Character models, vehicles, environments, weather, it's all spectacular but not overwhelming to the point of distraction.

    • 95 Critic Score
    Just an extremely enjoyable, beautiful, nostalgic, and engaging RPG for the PlayStation 2. This charming, atmospheric RPG is not to be missed.

    Rather than a reiteration of the customs, concepts and capabilities we’ve become familiar with in RPGs, Oblivion is something wholly new and entertaining that advances what freedom can feel like in a video game.

    I was stunned by how well made this game was. Stories certainly is a wonderful achievement for the PSP, but it does have a few drawbacks with the slowdown, camera issues, battery and a lack of online play, but you still can’t be that disappointed as this is the best game on the PSP.

    There is no other way to describe Guitar Hero other than it’s a fantastic game that’s a blast to play.

    Far Cry Instincts is just another example of how bloody marvelous UbiSoft can be, and how good a console shooter can be without needing to distract us with aliens and shiny green space suits.

    Everything – absolutely everything - works better in this game than in any RE title before. The end result is a game that is a total blast to play through.

    Who knew having this much control over a little virtual family would be so fun, but there’s something undeniably charming about the sims that will keep you glued to your PC for weeks, wanting to buy that one last toy for the recreation room or add one more addition to your house.

    The graphics are amazing (mind you, even on a mediocre system), the sound is amazing (if you don’t have a 5.1 system yet, consider it), and the game is downright scary.

    If you already own another version, you’d be silly to purchase it again, but if you don’t have any copy of the game yet, you should only opt for a console version if you want to play in the living room with some friends watching. Otherwise, grab the PC version for the best experience.

    A wonderful, innovative advancement for Sony’s peripheral. The game has wonderful graphics, sound and options. The only problem with it is that setting up can be irritating and the camera is still imprecise.

    The first must-have game of the next-generation.

    It's the same tried and tested gameplay with some cool new cars and levels, and a few new features that may or may not be your cup of tea.

    FIFA 06 is a great game for both soccer novices and enthusiastic players alike, and is a worthy investment to a soccer fan’s entertainment library.

    Without a doubt, WWE Smackdown! Vs. Raw 2006 is one of the greatest, if not the greatest, wrestling game ever made.

    There's incredible depth, high production values, and a story that starts out rather generic, but turns into a flat-out epic.

    The Warriors may be the best example of a movie being transferred to a game, ever. You can tell by the entire production including the audio, graphics, controls and gameplay that Rockstar cared about the film’s origins.

    Despite its obvious flaws, Kingdom Hearts II is a great game – just not as great as its predecessor, and not the best RPG we’ve ever seen.

    The AI is the best seen thus far in any strategy title and the complexity and depth of the game will keep gamers coming back for just one more turn.
