    With an improved co-op and five fresh gameplay styles It's a great new direction for the Trauma Center series and one of the year's best Wii games so far.

    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.

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

    This game has everything, fast action, time travel, a great sense of humor and some of the best visuals of any platformer game. A Crack in Time is easily one of the best PlayStation 3 games of the year!

    Proving once again that the PSP is the place to go to get your favorite obscure old school role-playing game, Atlus offers us Shin Megami Tensei: Persona. This thirteen year old remake not only improves on the original in every way (except for the graphics), but quickly becomes one of the system's top adventure games.

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

    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.

    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.

    Sure it's a port of a three year old role-playing game, but Disgaea 2: Dark Hero Days is an adventure game worth reliving.

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

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

    A good game made better. Improved graphics, the addition of racing, and some control scheme enhancements have made the game better.

    Tales of Monkey Island is an engaging and well written story that is a fun game to boot. Chapter Five struggles a little but ultimately brings the story to a fitting close.

    MLB 10: The Show is a well made game. I recommend this title if you love baseball; everyone else can find something different to play. The initial difficulty can be frustrating but a complex and rewarding game can be found just beneath the surface.

    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.

    A unique gaming experience that owners of the 360 and PS3 should be jealous of. Sakura Wars: So Long My Love offers Wii owners and fun and polished title with memorable characters, great music, and stellar gameplay.

    Five years is quite a wait for a PS2 game. Only the most dedicated would care about it at this point and that's quite a shame. They're missing out on the last great PS2 game.

    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.

    Transformers: War for Cybertron is a a great tribute and representation of the original, Generation 1 Transformers. Those who aren't familiar with the game will also find something to love in the form of a fast paced and thoroughly enjoyable action game, both online and off.

    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.

    It is a similar gameplay experience to the sequel title, but with an even more intriguing plot than reuniting with your daughter was. While gameplay won't feel original, the engineered and technology-run world will.

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

    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.

    Dead Rising 2 won't attract many new fans, but gamers who can put up with the funky leveling-up system are in for a real treat. With hundreds of zombies on screen, all kinds of cool weapons to create and a story that is actually compelling, Capcom has created the sequel Dead Rising fans have been asking for!

    THQ's Smackdown vs Raw 2011 is a massive game, both in terms of its scope and its content. There is a ton to do here and wrestling game fans will likely find it easy to hold their selves over until next year's game with this title.

    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.

    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…
