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

    Super Mario Galaxy is the best game on the Wii, period.

    Bioshock is one of those rare games that completely sucks you into its world.

    Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is the kind of game you have to experience for yourself to understand just how great it really is.

    The graphics are gorgeous, and it isn't an exaggeration to say that this is one of the best- looking Gamecube games ever. Quite possibly, this is one of the best-looking console games ever.

    The Orange Box is the best collection of video games ever to grace a console, and since you bothered to read this review, you know exactly why.

    It's simply one of the most intense and exciting action/adventure games in years, regardless of hardware.

    Non-linear, absolutely packed with things to do, entertaining radio stations, great missions, great story, great characters, enough diversions to keep you playing for months, so much diversity in the cities that you may never stop discovering new aspects of town.

    This is a gaming achievement, not only for its sharp gameplay and beautiful visuals, but for its vast create-a-level mode as well.

    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.

    A fantastic example of pure artistic vision coupled with serious technological know-how.

    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.

    It's hard to sum up a game like Portal 2. It doesn't have enough shooting to be a shooter, but it's not abstract enough to be a puzzle game. It's unique and challenging enough to attract the hardcore, but its offbeat humor and intuitive design will make it a hit with casual players.

    Beyond its impressive production value, the true success of BioWare’s Mass Effect 2 is how it blends the most entertaining elements of so many other great games.

    To give Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D anything other than a maximum score would be an insult.

    What is appealing about Anomaly: Warzone Earth is its value for money. For as little as $1.99 you can have a visually stunning tactical game that's as good as any on PSP or DS. As far as iPhone games go, it's certainly one of the top ten available, without question.

    The loftiest of production values married to one of a kind graphical fidelity, all wrapped up in astounding, innovative and exciting gameplay that shooter fans will die for make GoW a true AAA title that not only lives up to, but surpasses its massive hype.

    This game is overwhelming and overachieving in so many ways that Bethesda needs to take a bow.

    Aside from some minor annoyances (the announcer/DJ can get a tad tedious) Burnout 3: Takedown is an absolutely exceptional game and it's quite frankly hard to imagine how the next one could be much better.

    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.

    The amazing levels don't contribute to the game's magnificence alone. More so, it's the way in which the moving characters are all just right on the money.

    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.

    The most exciting and terrifying arcade racer in a good long while. The insane sense of speed, incredible depth, and constant feeling of accomplishment via unlocking stuff every time you turn around really adds to the addictive quality of Burnout 3: Takedown.

    While Super Smash Bros. Brawl does not offer very much in the way of innovation, it is one of those games that is so polished and so full of value that it is bound to sell well for quite some time.

    Few games can revolutionize an entire genre of gaming, but ‘Company of Heroes’ is one of them. From the high-quality next-gen graphics to the unique style of RTS gameplay, Company of Heroes should be hailed as the definitive RTS game.

    GTA: Chinatown Wars is a landmark for the DS. It pushes the system to new highs and is an absolute blast to play.
