    This is one of the best games of this generation, and a must-have for anyone with the slightest bit of interest in the post-apocalyptic genre.

    Dead Space is a potent combination of visceral glee and intense terror. This is the next generation of survival horror. Let's see if "Resident Evil 5" can keep up.

    When it's all said and done, Picross 3D is one of the most satisfying, unique, and charming puzzle games to be released in quite a while.
    • 88 Metascore

    The combat is more intuitive, the narrative exceeds almost all in its genre, the plasmid and gun customizations are richer, the multiplayer certainly stands on its own, and the nods to the first game is undoubtedly valued.

    • 95 Critic Score
    In short, Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver are excellent remakes of the Gold and Silver pair of games.

    Fans of the Dark Knight must not miss Batman: Arkham Asylum. This game is everything one would want a Batman game to be and I cannot recommend it enough.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    The players move even more fluid than before, a vast improvement over the sometimes choppiness of the visuals during an intense, route-switching play.

    If you consider yourself a gamer and fancy the online stores, there is no excuse not to play Shooter.

    Much to the delight of every RPG and Star Wars fan, KOTOR delivers a game that features a compelling story, robust character development, a well-refined combat interface, tons of extras, downloadable content, and the ability to explore the Star Wars universe and use all the Jedi tricks you could hope for.

    Call of Duty 4 is Infinity Ward's best game to date, the best military shooter ever made, and one of the best games of the year. If you are not a fan of first-person shooters, this game will make you rethink your position.

    NHL 11 is the best hockey game EA's produced at least in this generation, and possibly ever.

    Ivy the Kiwi? is one of the most unexpected, best games to happen on the Wii and DS.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    While the cumulative experience derived from the campaign may be disappointing, the underlying gameplay is still fun and the set pieces are still exciting, at least the first time you play through them.

    Despite the omitted tune, Final Fantasy XIII overall is a high quality RPG that is worth every ounce of the hype. It most likely won't change the minds of those who dislike JRPGs, but fans of the genre will love every minute of the 70-100 hours they will invest.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    It is beautiful, challenging, rewarding and fun. It's a game that you could play through several times just for the hell of it, and that's before you actively try going after the many, very cool extras. It is a game that encompasses your thoughts in all walks of life.

    This year's version of Madden isn't just good - it's legendary. Madden NFL 11 boasts a host of new features, but the most dramatically noticeable are the vastly improved running and receiving games.

    In short, Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver are excellent remakes of the Gold and Silver pair of games.

    Echoes has already made its debut on Xbox Live Arcade, but it fits quite well in the PSP Mini library. In fact, it's one of the best PSP Minis available, which may not be saying much due to the scant library filled with sub-par games, but it's definitely a crystal in the rough.

    BioShock is still the game it was a year ago and is an amazing entry for the PlayStation 3's line-up.

    Assassin's Creed 2 is an amazing sequel. It outclasses the original in almost every way, but in doing so only enhanced my appreciation for the original game and the foundation it provided.

    • 95 Critic Score
    Despite the short-but-sweet nature of the game, it actually delivers more value than a significant portion of full retail-priced Xbox 360 games. Shadow Complex is a game that is incredibly simple and straight-forward in the most intuitive and imaginative way possible.

    An incredible game and a heavyweight in the RPG genre.

    Street Fighter IV is the culmination of two decades of learning what works, correcting what does not, making good things better, and discarding baffling missteps.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    The addition of the masterful Spec-Ops modes goes a long way to making up for the uneven campaign though, and the competitive multiplayer is as addictive as expected.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    Gears of War 2 isn't quite the landmark title that first game was, but it's still one of the best third-person shooters ever made.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    Samus' new adventure is one of her best. It's darker than any Metroid game out there, more challenging, more atmospheric and perhaps longer. Overall, it's a very extension of Metroid Prime – which is both a good thing and a bad thing.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    There is a beautiful synthesis of creativity of the Beatles and creativity from Harmonix working together to make a chart topping game.
    • 97 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    Weighing in with 13 maps, 26+ game modes, and a slew of adjustable options, Halo is a veritable cornucopia of multiplayer goodness. Add System Link Support to the fray, and you're looking all night frag-filled benders.

    Just Cause 2 isn't going to win any awards for its story, but it will pick up accolades for the astonishing amount of activities and collecting to do on the island of Panau.
