    An excellent departure of this already great series and now you don't have to worry about going to prison for throwing innocent animals anymore.

    Civilization IV is exactly the sequel that fans of the series could have hoped for. This game is all about bringing more to the franchise.

    Guitar Hero III adds interesting elements like online multiplayer, boss battles and battle power, but the real innovation is in the new rock-themed setlist and the way you play it.

    One of the best titles to come out for the DS yet.

    Why is Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas such a great game? To put it simply, the game is huge. It has such a variety of things going on that almost everybody can find a part of it that they enjoy.

    So, as the saying goes, one of the best just got better.

    Left 4 Dead redefines how teamwork can excel in the internet age. A solid action game to begin with, L4D adds a few twists to the formula that encourages – nay, demands – cooperation amongst your group of four survivors.

    I have seen what makes a hero, and what makes a coward. I will choose the path of a hero... always.

    There are loads of savory things to do in this paper-made world that's funny, and original, and just solid by any and all means.

    Punch-Out!! captures the essence and invokes the spirit of the original without feeling old.

    At $40 for the PSN file, it may be the most expensive downloadable game you buy, but it’s currently the best online multiplayer title to hit PS3.

    SingStar doesn't have flashy drums or a pair of licensed guitars, but this game-and-microphone bundle brings PS3 owners the best way to sing on a video game system.

    As it stands, Left 4 Dead is a great game, and Valve is continually improving it with patches already released and a content update promised for the near future.

    Is Winter Assault a worthy heir to Dawn of War's Game-of-the-Year status? Heck, yeah.

    On its own, the campaign is a bit short (though still excellent), and the multiplayer is a fun diversion but not as deep as a traditional online shooter, but combined, it's one of Sony's top online and offline games.

    Visually, Metroid Prime 2 is amazing.

    Without hesitation I can say it's one of the best looking and sounding Xbox games to date, and virtually nothing has been lost in the translation from PC. It's creepy, immersive, dark - and features a style that really gets into your head.

    Most definitely the best platform game to come to the Xbox in its 4 year life.

    Despite only sporting four game modes and keeping that comically intense combo-praising voice, this is the best version of Bejeweled to grace the iPhone yet.

    An amazing single-player experience is put together with a multiplayer section that doesn’t have the features it should, but the game’s quality still shines through, brightly.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    It's literally an achievement worth every penny. There's an abundance of strategic flavor in the battles, well articulated graphical feats, an apt cementing in sounds, and a nice collection of extras for the truest of role-playing fans -- deep enough to go overboard with more than 80 hours of gameplay.

    With all of the classic NES sights and sounds, Tetris DS looks and sounds better than practically any game of Tetris before it (but I still miss the Russian feel).

    If you have an HDTV and if you love Street Fighter and if you still have $15 to your name in this economy, you owe it to yourself to download SFII Turbo HD Remix, even if it means skipping a meal.

    Intense speed, hordes of gametypes, a unique and in-depth online setup, and of course, next-generation visuals and high-definition presentation.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    Some presentation aspects may have been rushed for the sake of the game's release (in time for the World Cup, Go Canada Go!!), but it's still a great package. Once again, ESPN is hanging with EA right at the top.

    Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time is yet another great entry in a consistently excellent franchise, and the best entry in the series since the PS2 days.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    Literally one of the biggest games ever created and it will take you weeks or even months just to see everything it has to offer.

    While the single player mode won’t last you a long time, challenging others to break your score is where the game’s bread-and-butter is at. Highly recommended.

    Online play is addictive and challenging despite its frustrating flaws and oversights, the realism of the game despite the cartoony look is great, and most importantly, the game is extremely fun.

    Bayonetta is a superb action title that gets props for still being very challenging for the hardcore action crowd, but accessible enough for less-skilled players to play – the forgiving systems in place allow for minimal frustration, which usually leads to said player becoming much more skilled than they were before.
