    Heck, it’s also quite a solid squad-based strategy game, so those leery of the superhero genre could be brought into the fold.

    Scarygirl is easily the most fun I've had with a 2D side-scrolling platformer in a long long time. If you're in the market for a platforming experience that isn't meant for gamers with 2 brains, 3 hands, and 15 fingers, then go download Scarygirl right now.

    Unstoppable Gorg is an enjoyable tower defense game, that is a visually entertaining to watch as it is fun to play.

    Hard Corps: Uprising is a treat for fans of the original Contra series. The game pays homage to the older titles in the series while making its own mark with modern additions and improvements. Expect a challenge though as the difficulty level of the game has been turned up to eleven.

    It's a deep adventure game full of memorable characters and an epic story. It's a game that takes you on a journey that lasts some twenty years. And best of all, it's a quest you likely have never gone on. For that reason alone, Dragon Quest V is a must-own!

    Oblivion has the audio to match the graphics. Outside of the orchestral score Bethesda Softworks went all out with the voice over talent bringing Patrick Stewart, Sean Bean, and Terrance Stamp to give voices to their characters.

    Ys Seven is a great looking game that offers huge boss battles, fast-paced gameplay and a lengthy single-player experience.

    Knights in the Nightmare is a solid addition to the PSP library.

    Conduit 2 is a good example of a sequel done right: it's an evolution of the previous game with a multitude of major improvements. With a bolder, brasher single player game, for better or worse, and a far more robust multiplayer mode, Conduit 2 isn't just a good first person shooter by Wii standards. It's a damn good shooter, period.

    Even if you're one of those people who has completely written off the Tomb Raider series, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is still worth checking out.

    If you're a fan of The Fantastic Four, or you're looking for a fun and somewhat challenging table to add to your Pinball FX 2 collection, you might want to give this one a try.

    Not only is Final Fantasy one of the best looking games on the Nintendo DS, but it also features the best story and characters.

    Each game of Spore applies something of Occam’s Razor as a developmental guideline at first: The simplest gameplay approach is often the best.

    Like Pushmo, I really enjoyed my time with Zuma's Revenge and it's definitely a game I'll go to for a quick puzzle fix. I am a little disappointed that there's no wi-fi multiplayer, the boss battles can get a tad annoying, and the difficulty can increase a little quickly for some people. Then again, no one said Zuma was easy.

    While it's a short campaign, the game's solid as a rock and offers a good deal of replayability.

    As much as Bungie wanted to sell Halo: Reach as a story-driven first person shooter rife with the familiar golden gameplay methods fans have come to expect from a Halo title, Halo: Reach doesn't answer to this standard. The game ultimately shines in its ridiculously fun and addictive gameplay that sees its mastery in the various multiplayer modes available.

    The Conduit is a flawed masterpiece: it doesn’t quite live up to the nigh-unreachable hype built up around it, but by breaking so much ground on the Wii it does something more important than meet the hype.

    Some people will hate the putting, but the rest of the game more than makes up for the questionable way the developers implemented the putting stroke.

    Has Blizzard created a game that can last as long as Diablo 2 has? I don't know, but Diablo3 is an absolutely stellar game that everyone can enjoy, provided they've got a stable internet connection, and the time to find all that sweet, sweet loot.

    With a lengthy story, exciting multiplayer modes, and plenty of white-knuckle action, Liberty City Stories offers just about everything you could want from a Grand Theft Auto game.

    Overall, Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine is a refreshingly simple, straight forward and fun shooter.

    You have to be impressed with the final product that Yuke's and THQ. It's tough to start a game completely from scratch and build it up to what you want. While there are still some modifications that need to be made for future titles, the final product for wrestling fans is one that is worthy of main event status.

    For Left 4 Dead fans, there's more zombie killing fun in this one and it does feel different from the first game. The many additions really help expand the game and almost makes the first game seem like a beta.

    A fantastic action RPG for a bargain price. This is exactly what indie titles should be.

    Approachable yet challenging: a perfect balance for a console-based racing game. Being able to play on both sides of the law adds to the fun, as does an easy-to-use online multiplayer mode.

    Apocrypha, as an expansion, brings so many improvements to the table that it would be, going forward, impossible to imagine the game without them.

    GRID is, in essence, the Nicole Kidman of racing games. Hollywood production values couple with classic beauty under neo lighting, skinned-over by intelligent complexity--all of which rumbles unseen beneath the bodywork, sometimes understated, sometimes overt, and at all times volatile.

    Only fans of the band need apply as it is strictly Beatles content on this one.
