    Red Barrels have done a fantastic job combining an intensely disquieting setting, a unique visual look, and an incredibly effective camera gimmick to ensure that nobody escapes Mount Massive without a few nightmares.

    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.

    Freerunning has taken on new life with Connor's ability to flit through the trees, and the new weapons hem nicely into the freedom and wealth of options of the series...I can personally guarantee it'll see the top of many Game of the Year lists, perhaps even our own – Assassin's Creed III is a masterpiece.

    From the opening cinematic to the garage to the customization to the races, you can just tell that the developers just love cars and they have poured that into Forza Motorsport 4.

    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.

    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.

    This is your imagination come to life. In a holiday season filled with sequels, heists, and all the action games you can imagine, Puppeteer is different…and different is good.

    Crashmo is a natural extension of the concepts introduced by Pushmo. Sure, it gets much harder much faster than Pushmo, but it does so much more with less that it easily surpasses the achievements of its predecessor.

    This game oozes replay value. From the Xbox Live! to the improved interface, this game has legs.

    This game is quite a bit longer than the first game, which was the biggest complaint of the first game. Sucker Punch has delivered a massive adventure game with a slick cohesion of 3 playable characters.

    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.

    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.

    In the end I came to the conclusion that made the most sense – Rock Band Blitz is another accessory for my Rock Band experience. When you stop thinking about it as a separate product, picking up this downloadable title just makes sense.

    Even two years after its original release, Mortal Kombat remains one of the best fighting games ever made.

    While the decent storyline, the online auction house, the active post-release tweaking and the addictive gameplay may be compelling reasons to own Diablo III – Blizzards newest game is king for one reason : accessible gameplay and repeat visits to Sanctuary.

    Controls are extremely tight and responsive. You are in complete control of Master Chief's movements, so any loss or mistake is completely your own.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Whether you like to sneak, like to slay mercilessly, or somewhere in between, there is something here for you. Dishonored is very easily a contender for Game of the Year.

    Those looking for a challenge need look no further than Fire Emblem: Awakening, and newcomers can enjoy a much more accessible experience via the casual mode. With steady innovations such as the improved sound, relationship system, and online functionality, fans can finally rejoice at the series' return to Nintendo's newest portable device.

    Soul Calibur II just oozes replay value. From the extensive Mission mode, the 23 characters you can unlock, the 10 game modes, and over 200 unlockable weapons and costumes means that you will be playing this for a long time, and that is supposing you don't have any friends to play multiplayer with.
