    Astounding graphics, terrific animation, and upgraded fielding controls bring the best of 2006 and make it better for 2007.

    Don't be afraid of the different route this sequel took, Burnout Paradise is every bit as exhilarating as you could hope for.

    Chronicles of Riddick literally came out of nowhere to mesmerize us with its polished gameplay, immersive plot and unique gameplay elements.

    Everything it promises to be: an old-school shooter with a zany, slightly raunchy style that you really won't find anywhere else.

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

    You can look at the pictures, read my review, and watch videos, but not until you actually go through the game and see what it has to offer will you ever understand what everybody is so excited about.

    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.

    • 91 Critic Score
    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.

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

    Daxter isn't just a great platformer with amazing graphics and sound, it's one of the best playing games you can get on the PSP. You can look around all you want, but there's no reason to; Daxter is the new king of 3D portable platforming games.

    An excellent and authentic single player experience, combining great game play based on squad leadership with compelling story telling.

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

    The guilty-pleasure, fast-food champion of MMO gaming has expanded their menu, upgraded their sides, and supersized everything on your tray. Eat up.

    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.

    Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories doesn’t attempt to reinvent the formula, but it does offer you a fantastic action/adventure game full of memorable characters, fun missions and great music.

    Just like on the PC, the 360 version of Left 4 Dead is just immensely fun to play. Whether you go on the hunt or are the hunted, Left 4 Dead will leave you wanting more every time you finish a campaign.

    While it's a short campaign, the game's solid as a rock and offers a good deal of replayability.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    While not as solid as a single-player game, the game's multi-player experience is better than just about anything else released this year. You must buy Rock Band ... and then you must rock!

    Opposing Forces puts the player in a position of decision making and responsibility, but still offers up the visual and auditory aspects of down-in-the-trenches fighting. It rewards quick thinking and attention to detail, and punishes those that possess neither, pretty much as it should be.

    Uncharted is a tremendously fun game and one of the best gaming experiences of the year. While it borrows heavily from other games in the market it's such a nice and diverse game that it's hard to find much fault with.

    The Saboteur is a fun, if not fairly short game with a solid storyline in tandem with its WWII theme.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    Civilization fans have yet another great addition to their addiction in Beyond the Sword.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    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.

    • 91 Critic Score
    This is going to be another one of those sleeper hits that squeak out just before a consoles life comes to an end. A true gem that should be picked up before it becomes one of those sought after titles long past its short shelf life.

    Soulcalibur 4 has its flaws, awful writing and stilted dialogue, but it is also the essential fighting game of the summer, if not the entire year. Well-balanced characters and endless customization will keep you coming back for more.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    A solid, well written, well executed game. If you're looking for something new and original, Darksiders is your game.

    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.

    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.
    • 82 Metascore

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

    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.
