    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.

    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.

    Powered Up is definitely the most comprehensive Mega Man game out there.

    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 sad that Xenosaga Episode III is as good as it is – had they made a game as polished, accessible, and fun as this one the first time around instead of getting all complicated on us, the series might have somehow been able to make it to six games.

    Final Fantasy III is a terrific-looking RPG that what it lacks in story, nearly makes up for in its addictiveness and charm. The game can be pretty tough and the job system isn’t as polished as those in Final Fantasy V or Tactics, but it’s easily one of the best RPGs for the DS.

    The multiplayer mode can handle up to four players offline via split screen and a whopping forty players online via the new PlayStation Network.

    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.

    The game just doesn’t significantly benefit through using the remote. Everything that is done with the remote could just as easily be done with a Gamecube controller.

    At the end of the day, Grand Theft Auto IV is an amazingly good game that overcomes many of its problems.

    While the multiplayer modes were fun, I found that the main game was much more compelling and ultimately what kept me booting up my DS.

    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.

    Although the new areas are largely designed for levels 1-20, they provide a refreshing pace after going through the Alliance’s starting points about five times.

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

    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.

    The PS3 is going through the usual post-launch woes, but if you're a baseball fan, MLB 07 The Show is just the game to get you through the lean months until the usual fall insanity.

    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]

    For Star Wars fans, The Force Unleashed is required playing to continue your membership in the Star Wars geekdom.

    Pac-Man CE is not just one of the great XBLA games, it is one of the great games period.

    This is no cash-in. 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. The puzzles are clever, the combat is visceral, there are a good amount of items and upgrades to be had and the world is convincing.

    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.

    This is by far the best XBLA title yet, and despite the relatively high price tag, it actually offers incredible bang for the buck.

    Aside from a few minor quirks, Dead Space is easily one of the best games of 2008, thus far.

    At $20, if you're a racing fan, don't pass up what feels like a full game.

    Days of Ruin may be marked as a turning point in the series, and with good reason, as the title could end up being heralded by some players for pushing the series in new directions, or bemoaned by others who enjoyed the plucky war game and its comedic aspects.

    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.

    I commend Square-Enix on bringing over a very niche title and taking the gamble with both the game mechanics and the audience.

    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.
