    If you're in the market for a sandbox game that's more RPG than GTA, but still want just a smidge of that GTA craziness, Yakuza 3 would be a great a choice, long as you can handle the slow beginning.

    There’s a lot to do in Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl, which looks as good as a top-down Pokemon game is going to get for some time. It also benefits more than any other sequel in the series from a predecessor due to online capabilities. [JPN Import]

    Great looks, an amazing array of incredible moves, fully destructible environments and a physics engine that brings it all to life – Ultimate Destruction is the perfect Hulk simulator.

    Electronic Arts took an amazing product, and instead of slacking off, they added a bunch of things to make this the most addictive Madden yet.

    Puzzle Quest 2 lives up to fans' high expectations and delivers a fun and lovingly addictive evolution of our favorite gem-matching RPG.

    Jade Empire is "Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic all over again." It's not the same game. It is, however, a likened journey that'll leave you completing many of the same actions you have in the other game, only this time under a different guise.

    For anyone looking for something a little different out of their First Person Shooter experience, Darkwatch is that game.

    It keeps all the technicality of the original and spices things up with it’s handful of new features. It’s great to see portable fighting titles are nearly on par with their console brethren these days. It’s only too bad that the PSP just wasn’t designed with these sorts of games in mind.

    It gives players a satisfying, open-world experience – those who want to follow the main story can do so in about 15 hours, while the completionists will have a field day with all of the side missions and other items added into the game.

    Despite the serious online issues, Castle Crashers is pure light-hearted fun that is accessible to everyone.

    This is not only the best motorcycle racing game on the market, it is one of the best racers period and a must-have for speed lovers everywhere.

    One of the best racing games the PSP has seen so far.

    Despite the high price tag, The Lost and Damned actually offers excellent bang for the buck and raises the bar for all DLC add-ons.

    If you're looking for a serious story of epic proportions and melting the senses graphics and sounds, Izuna may not be your cup of tea, instead you might want to pick up Final Fantasy III. If you're looking for a solid dungeon crawler packing a challenge, Izuna is the ninja for you.

    What at first seems like a God of War clone turns into a grown up version of Zelda - a bloody adventure with dark themes and settings, and it actually works.

    As with many Zelda titles, the game isn't to replayable and sadly Phantom Hourglass is a fairly short adventure. That being said, it is a fantastic example of classic 2D Zelda gameplay placed in a 3D world.

    It's a blast to play and it includes a ton of extra content making it one of the most satisfying Mortal Kombats ever.

    It’s a great buy but be warned: once you place your first tower, you’ll be hooked for many, many hours of alien blasting fun.

    It's short length keeps it from scoring any higher, but fans of Contra and shooter fans in general will find a great game in Neo Contra.

    Kids, Fallout 3 is Oblivion with guns hands down. Again, that's not a bad thing, but it feels like Bethesda missed an opportunity here by playing things safe and that's fine.

    Cramming all the cars, events, options, and even a large soundtrack into one UMD is nothing short of masterful, providing exactly what the PSP needs to grow – games designed to be played in spurts, yet as massive as the same sort of game on the home systems.

    It's been a busy holiday season, but don't let that distract you from checking out this game – you'll be surprised at how different – and better – the game is compared to its predecessor.

    Yet, despite my or anyone else's qualms about the game it still is a great game that can be enjoyed by anyone willing to give it a shot.

    Singing the rhythm yourself and tapping it out with your foot when your minions let you down demonstrates how hard it is to be a god and how into this game you can become.

    The ultimate culmination of the 6 Madden games released on PlayStation 2; for better or worse.

    Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King isn't like "Final Fantasy" with its over-the-top visual carvings and boundary-pushing gameplay. Here, Dragon Quest VIII is the comfy but less attractive affordable footwear. It's the trim without the finesse. It's the vanilla milkshake without the need of additional toppings.

    The lack of Co-op Quickplay is disappointing and the Guitar Battles are lame, but Neversoft does the Guitar Hero formula proud and I eagerly await to see what they can do with part four.

    It’s safe to say the story won’t blow you away, and the game could’ve been a tad longer overall, but what you have with Kameo is still a quality title that delivers a next-gen experience that truly feels like it comes from the next generation.
