    Even if the interface is over-designed, this is the closest thing to a true evolution to Mario Paint this generation might see.

    This is how updates of games that are just over 20 years-old should be: classic, timeless, and modernized in all the right places. FFDI is such a great package that a recommendation couldn't come easier.

    It's not refined enough as an action game to contend with the likes of Gears of War, it's been usurped in the survival horror category by the stellar Dead Space, and it's such a deviation from the franchise's foundation that it's almost certain to alienate a large contingent of diehard fans.

    Peace Walker is a shining, golden example of great game design that's emerged during what many see as the PSP's last days.

    The game has just a pristine sheen all over it. It makes full use of the graphical horsepower of the 360. Tons of explosions or cars on the screen don't contribute at all to any slowdown.

    This is the finest example of an exercise game available.

    The speedy pacing and diverse, but limited, mini-games keep the energy high and the excitement rolling. This is one of the can't-miss titles for the brand new PlayStation Move.

    You will forget all about the sub-par graphics and sound. You just won't care, because you're having too much fun exploring and killing and moving.

    The most innovative and unique title to be released in quite some time. There are many out there, like myself, who will find just what they were looking for: A thinking man’s game.

    Make no mistake about it, Fight Night 2004, is by far the best boxing game ever. Period. The new total punch control system adds an unprecedented amount of realism to the genre without sacrificing any of the fun.

    This game's heart and soul lies in its Xbox Live play. If you've got Live, it would be a good idea to run out and pick this title up for the hours of online entertainment it'll undoubtedly provide.

    Mercenaries can simply be described as unadulterated fun. Every facet of the game contributes to the overall experience, creating a game that is far more than the sum of it's parts.

    The replay value in this game is phenomenal. What other game includes online play, all the modes like Practice, Quick Game, Tournament, Situation, and Franchise, the brand new VIP addition, ability to add in your own music, and team preparation? Better yet what other game does all that for only $20?

    The game manages to almost perfectly capture the feeling of Scarface, and manages to improve on almost every aspect of GTA in the process.

    It can't quite capture the flavor of the previous two. While nothing could be done with the Xbox version to remedy that, the attempts to add new features to the port like instant replay and custom radio stations fall completely flat.

    The best addition to The Two Thrones is Babylon itself. Gone are the lifeless vistas of ancient palaces and forgotten islands. Babylon is a living/breathing city filled with a fearful populace oppressed by an enemy army.

    While not the revolution its immediate predecessor was, Burnout Revenge stands as the best racing game of the year, and a excellent game in its own right.

    When you have a formula that works, all you have to do is tweak it to make it better. That's exactly what RavenSoft did, and the results will not disappoint.

    Simply the ultimate in comic book video games. Ultimate Spider-Man does for comic book games what "Sin City" did for comic book films.

    It mixes together some very well-designed elements, such as its battle system, level design, puzzle design and its funny, charming storyline.
