    Alice: Madness Returns certainly has its flaws - the least of which is pacing - but the experience of exploring the slowly-deteriorating mind of Alice Liddell in the imaginative and dark world of Wonderland is worth putting up with them for.

    It's definitely one of the premier titles right now on the PlayStation 3.

    If you're weary of last holiday's high profile first person shooters and their endless hype, Serious Sam 3's endless enemies and endless ammo are the perfect antidote. The single player campaign is a rush that rarely lets up, and it gets awesomely insane when you play it in co-op with some friends. If you missed Sam 3 over the holidays, you owe it to yourself to pick it up now.

    Anyone that is a fan of the Marvel characters or pinball in general will love Pinball FX II and specifically the Marvel Pinball table pack. While either piece alone is enough to satisfy someone, if you love both Marvel and pinball, you will be in heaven…

    Top Spin 4 is a return to prominence for the series. New players and veteran players both can feel comfortable with the changes to gameplay that 2K Czech has built into this latest tennis effort. The improvements easily outweigh the flaws and this game is the best tennis simulation to arrive in years and the best overall tennis video game since the original Virtua Tennis.

    At $40, it's definitely worth your money even if you bought the previous game.

    Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack may look like an unassuming LocoRoco rip-off, but in actuality it's Katamari Damacy with a demented undercurrent. This quirky platformer basks in the glory of 1950s science fiction films; all while offering a solid action/puzzler that feels right at home on the PS Vita!

    After conquering Sam & Max, Monkey Island and Back to the Future, Telltale is ready to prove that they know a thing or two about zombies. If A New Day is any indication, then The Walking Dead game is going to be the must-play zombie game of the year. Stylish visuals accompany a well written adventure full of memorable characters and genuine scares!

    It's not always about the adventure you go on, but sometimes it's the way the story is told. Bastion weaves an incredible story that goes places I wasn't expecting. The game's narrations are unlike anything I've experienced before; improving what could have been an otherwise mediocre dungeon crawler. With some clever twists and turns, Bastion stays interesting from beginning to end!

    This is a fun rally racing game that leans more toward arcade action than driving simulation. Newcomers will find it easy to get into and advanced players will enjoy multiplayer. The graphics and in-game presentation are well done.

    Instead of standing in the original GoldenEye's shadow, Eurocom has created a brand new game that is just as compelling and addictive as the original.

    If you enjoyed Borderlands in its fullest and were hoping there was a way to extend the game-time without necessarily plunging into a second playthrough or a new character, The Secret Armory of General Knoxx is just that continuation you were looking for.

    Dragon Age: Origins is an excellent RPG with a great story, an awesome combat experience and definite replayability points.

    If you're one of those gamers who didn't pick the game up on one of the two portable systems earlier in the year, then this Xbox Live Arcade version is a must-buy.

    Chariots of the Dogs is great on so many levels, from its fantastic time traveling plotline to all of its great pop-culture references.

    SFxT is the fighting game to have at the moment. Its deep gameplay and a huge variety of modes will keep fighting fans busy both online and off for a long, long time. If Capcom could have addressed some of the sound problems that exist online and supplement the inability to see the various endings and movies you experience, this could have been the perfect fighting game.

    Peter Molyneux has earned a standing ovation for realizing his magnum opus, with Fable II serving as the pinnacle of his body of work, and a high-water mark for player-concocted storytelling in a role-playing game.

    A solid puzzle/adventure hybrid that is a lot more complex and difficult than it appears. This is a great alternative to the brain games and a must have for those who like to use their heard for more than a hat rack.

    There are some control and camera problems that occasionally pop up, but they don't spoil the overall experience. The levels are huge and diverse, the boss encounters are imaginative and larger-than-life, and the presentation is solid. I had a blast and don't see a reason why anyone would want to miss it.

    The next iteration of Activision's Call of Duty series, Call of Duty 3 for the Xbox, wrings the last dregs of capability from the Xbox aging console and satisfyingly delivers on the promise of an upgraded "Call of Duty 2."

    If you're looking for classic FPS action it doesn't get better than Perfect Dark. This game is already bursting with content and the addition of new graphics, controls and online play make it better than ever before.

    If you like baseball and a challenge, Out of the Park Baseball 10 will be your game of choice. Getting past the initial difficulty rewards the player in a way that few other games can.

    It may be the least hyped part of the Orange Box but Portal is a strong addition to the lineup and really stands out on its own.

    Buy two. If you buy one for the casual gamer in your life you will just end up fighting over it. For the sake of your friends and loved ones, I beg you, buy two.

    You may think I'm crazy, but Pinball Hall of Fame: The William Collection is easily one of the best games on the Wii.

    If you already have GTR 2 and Race '07, there won't be much to compel to you pick up GTR Evolution. If you have neither of those, though, GTR Evolution is a must-have for anyone that has a yearning to race.
