    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.

    Simply put, Memoria is an achievement of a video game.

    It may be too kiddie for some, but it’s a solid platformer with a great looking world and really inventive puzzles, and above all else it’s a lot of fun. Plus, the voice acting is stellar and I’ve been busting a gut at some of the lines.

    The biggest change to this game is the lack of a world map, and I was surprised by how much I missed it.

    For the rest of us, for those who just love playing good games with a great sense of style and high production values, Sly Cooper is not to be missed.

    The big things presented here are no slowdown, nice graphics, co-op Story mode play, a good amount of single and multi-player options outside of the Story mode and a plethora of extras and cheats to obtain.

    The variety of missions/gameplay types is refreshing.

    Wow, for a small startup developer like Starbreeze (whose only other released game was "Enclave" on the Xbox and PC) this is like dropping an atomic bomb for one of the first games you bring out.

    While the game does have a few flaws, there is simply nothing else out there like Oblivion. This is your early contender for Game of the Year, regardless of platform.

    A phenomenally awesome RTS, and stays true to all the games before it.

    The graphics, sounds, and controls are almost spot-on perfect replicas of their console counterpart. This is the best portable version of any Tony Hawk game to date.

    A stunning and wonderful conclusion to a magnificent storyline.

    This game is cranked to a volume of 11.

    Clearly Bungie's efforts were focused on the multiplayer facets of this game; and that alone makes it worth owning.

    The story of the Half-Life universe is propulsive in its own right and the sheer zeal Valve has for this world and the characters in it is a joy to experience. Partnering with a truly responsive AI also has to be seen to be believed.

    With a great control scheme, graphics that don’t look ported, fantastic humor, and a whole lot of races to complete, this quality title is worthy of being a member of the Tony Hawk franchise. This is a safe Day-1 pickup for the Wii, just make sure you buy the three spare Wiimotes for your friends!

    The level cap has increased allowing for more spells, talents, and power for individuals with the insanity to chase them. This is a whole new world.

    Fable 2 is an outstanding game that can't be missed this overcrowded holiday season.

    It is a great deal of fun with only a few instances where you feel like you are in over your head.

    I’m sure that it took a lot of convincing to get Activision to sign off on moving to a modern setting instead of the wildly successful World War II model that has performed so well since the game’s inception, but it has paid off in spades.

    While some developers develop for the console platforms and then hand off their PC port to other people, Infinity Ward holds onto their PC roots by handling this title personally. The result is a PC version that is as solid as its console counterparts, and we the gamer reap the benefits no matter which platform we choose.

    While it does share many of the same themes and gameplay styles, Darksiders is truly its own game, with its own set off high points and low points. Whether it’s the engaging combat or the surprisingly complex puzzle solving involved in many of the levels, Darksiders manages to consistently impress. This is absolutely a title that you do not want to miss.

    The game makes a lot of headway in terms of story quality, and the customization is beyond what we’ve seen in any sandbox title to date. While Saints Row 2 doesn’t reinvent the genre by any means, it brings more than enough big pimpin’ gameplay to keep me busy for a while.

    Call of Duty: World at War is a fantastic title.

    If you've played CT before and never "got it," or if you've avoided it for whatever reason, now's your chance to give it the shot it deserves. It will be well worth your time.

    While Operation Fallen Star is the third booster pack, it is definitely the most feature rich and game changing booster pack yet.

    This is a rock solid, genuinely excellent first effort by this developer. It's a title I intend to continue playing for the foreseeable future, and one I definitely recommend to those willing to give it a shot.

    The amount of swagger and sheer fun in “Just Cause 2” is tremendous, and needs to be played by you right this second.
