    A wonderful package. Don't wait on the bargain bin for this one, as it is worth the price from the get go.

    The fun of this game is that you can pick it up at any time and swing around for a while and then shelf the title for the day. It is a rare game that you can do that sort of thing.

    While PD0 may not be a revolutionary game, it can be considered a huge evolutionary step in the right direction.

    From mind blowing graphics and lighting effects and the brilliant experience of speed. The enormous amount of vehicle choices and racing options. Music choices out the whazoo, and stellar sound effects.

    Neversoft has created the most realistic skate title ever made. The graphics, animation, sound, challenge system, and Live integration has created a game that will challenge the legendary "Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2" for its crown as the king of the series.

    Coupled with a download via the Playstation Store that’ll explain the series to you so far, this game is playable even if you haven’t been following the series for years.

    Square-Enix should receive high praise indeed for their continued willingness to take chances with their flagship intellectual property. While many of the JRPG standards are missing, what remains is an incredible game experience.

    Exceeds the previous title in every way..."Guitar Hero" was a staple of the parties I throw at my house, but it looks like Guitar Hero II has stolen the crown!

    With the fantastic Mod community already churning out quality mods, this game will have the staying power that "Command and Conquer 3" might not have.

    Shivering Isles is an excellent addition to the Oblivion world, and it isn't just a small set of quests or a building that you can use during your travels. It is a fully realized realm for you to adventure in, with a story all of its own.

    Mercenaries 2 is absolutely fun in spite of its quirks and should be at the top of everyone’s must buy list.

    There are titles for every console that truly define the platform, and God of War: Chains of Olympus is one of those titles. Stunning graphics the likes of which we’ve never seen, an incredible soundtrack that rivals PS3/Xbox 360 titles, standout voice work, and gameplay that is on-par with the two previous PS2 titles makes this a must-own for any fan of the series.

    With the graphics, the online play, and the engrossing singleplayer campaign, this game is definitely worth your gaming dollar.

    Killzone 2 is a title that grabs hold of you with both hands at your throat and doesn’t let you go until the very end.

    If you love 4X games, this is the game to get. Due to all of the content, this game is the king of the hill in this genre.

    Overall, Rock Band 2 may be mostly incremental in upgrades and seemingly more of the same, but from where I sit on my drum throne, that isn’t a bad thing at all.

    Compelling epic storylines, characters so rich you can become emotionally invested in them, and a great combat engine that works on multiple platforms - Dragon Age: Origins has what it takes to take the RPG genre to the next level.

    Simply put, if you own a PSP and do not buy this game, shame on you. You’ll be missing one of the best games of the year.

    The bottom line here is that somehow, someway, Bigbig Studios managed to create a Motorstorm game on a handheld system that stands up to the PS3 versions in almost every single way.

    Of course, it bears repeating that people who are already into Professor Layton will still find a lot to love. It's everything the first game was and more, so those who enjoyed The Curious Village will have a great time with The Diabolical Box. Even if you didn't like the first game, you might find yourself pleasantly surprised.

    MLB 09: The Show was a great Next Gen restart for the franchise, and MLB 10: The Show delivers nicely on that promise.

    Overall, the game looks like it has been rebuilt from the ground up. The removal of the guitar portions, a slick new interface, a more evenly distributed soundtrack, and a few new tricks to keep you on your toes make this a far more polished product.

    Capcom has managed to make a fighting game that everyone can play and enjoy. Marvel vs Capcom 3 satisfies the hardcore fighter, yet is approachable for fighting amateurs.

    With a gripping story, top of the line graphics, fantastic sound, unsurpassed multiplayer, and innovations such as the Voice-Activated Order System - this is one of the best and most impressive games to come out on Xbox yet.

    By far the most beautiful game on the Xbox. I'd go so far as to say it is the best looking title on any system.
