    Undead Nightmare is an exceptional piece of DLC, that not only raises the bar for all add-on content to follow, but also wraps up the truly fantastic experience that is arguably Rockstar's finest work to date, Red Dead Redemption.

    For role playing fans, this is the pinnacle of the genre, an all encompassing experience that is quite simply hinged on it's own grandiose and success, a must play title. For shooter/action fans, there might be a lot of waffle to wade through, but the merits of sticking with it outweigh any of the potential downfalls. Again, a must play game.

    For tactical warfare fans GRAW is a must buy, the fantastic single player campaign and especially the extensive online multiplayer options will keep you coming back for more.

    Hudson made a mistake releasing Act Zero last year, but boy oh boy have they ever made up for it with the masterpiece of Bomberman Live. My hat off to the guys at Hudson Entertainment for giving us one of the best versions of Bomberman since the Sega Saturn.

    If you enjoy fighting games, you'll enjoy this one, and with so much to unlock it's got plenty for you to do and keep you busy. If you're a fan of Street Fighter IV who has never liked Mortal Kombat, I do suggest you give this one a try as I think both games are very well made.

    The ideal Metro 2033 player is someone looking for something new, something immersive and something really, really hard. If you fit that description, we cannot recommend Metro 2033 highly enough.

    If you're looking for a game with a personality all its own and don't mind spending a few extra Microsoft points, Stacking will stack up remarkably well against other competition.

    If it sounds hard to web swing into a wall run, grab a little girl's balloon as you jump off the wall to attack a thug, and yank another goon into the air with you as you drop, then you're beginning to understand how complex some of these move combinations can be.

    Although all of the game’s features are excellent qualities for a truly great game, the area where Spider-Man 3 succeeds most is in just being downright fun to play.

    It has everything; superb gameplay, spectacular graphics, fantastic sound and to top it all off, the usual but addictive Xbox Live play.

    I like San Andreas as it offers so much to mess around with on an unprecedented level.

    Games don’t get much better than this and if you are into shooting adventuring and general gaming then Bioshock is well worthy of a purchase.

    A breath of fresh air when it comes to stealth games.

    Battlefield 2 should be the benchmark for any future first person war shooter on the Xbox.

    If you're after a solid and well respected 3D hand to hand fighter that is every bit as good offline as it is online then this is well worth the investment.

    It’s good. It’s really good. Fans of the NHL games will not be disappointed and newcomers to the series will find one of the deepest, enjoyable, and most engaging hockey game EA has ever put out to date.

    Pure is sheer unadulterated fun. The game offers breathtaking graphics and addictive gameplay, combined with a decent set of single and multiplayer modes.

    Crammed full of features, diverse gameplay, energetic combat and the basic stealth/action the series is renowned for and you have a killer of a game for fans and newcomers alike.

    Developer Neversoft has taken the formula that Harmonix started and managed to keep the greatness of the Guitar Hero franchise intact. Killer yet unique gameplay combined with a to-die-for song list, makes this title a must own 360 game in my opinion.

    In closing, in case I haven't been too obvious: Go buy Soul Calibur IV. It's worth every penny and is an Xbox 360 must have.

    I have found that NFSMW is highly addictive and the return to the roots of the series with the pursuit mode is a more than a welcome inclusion over the recent underground titles.

    Staying true to its origins Puzzle Quest 2 delivers the addicting gameplay of two genres and makes some wonderful changes to be considered more than just a sequel.

    Treyarch have done a fine job with Black Ops. Not only does the game retain its Call of Duty aesthetic appeal, and pushes all of the series strengths seemingly as far as they can go, but now other aspects of the game are also to this high standard.

    This may have surpassed Spider-man and Blade as my favorite pinball board of all time because the challenge it offers and all of the different modes that you can unlock during play. The Fantastic Four table does Zen Studios and the Marvel License proud by creating a visually stimulating experience that will keep players coming back trying to best their previous score. If you have downloaded the game and have a few extra points this is one themed table you won't regret purchasing.

    Outland is a well-done sidescrolling action game that integrates its bullet hell mechanics well. It brings a little something new to an old genre, giving it a bit of fresh life. When looking at a genre where it's so easy for companies to cut corners and make one just like any of the others, seeing a game that really goes the extra mile is a good sign and worth supporting. It might not have as much content as some may want, but it's still an worthwhile experience.

    The visceral combat, the varied locales, the tense moments and entertaining story are worth the price of entry alone, and with added multiplayer for those who must share the experience, make this game a more well rounded product. Highly recommended and another classic game to add to the collection.

    DJ Hero is a breath of fresh air in the music game genre and we really feel FreeStyleGames has done a great job.

    Dead Rising was an enjoyable experience, full of the undead, a bit of cheese, and a likeable yet somewhat flat protagonist in Frank West. DR 2 ups the ante to provide similar thrills, but overall feels like a much more fuller game.

    For all Fallout 3’s ideas, innovations, and excellent hybrid of game genres, it’s not without its flaws.

    With all of the added single player goodness of a Story Mode, Tournaments, Challenges, the new/classic game types, and the inclusion of Xbox Live play (which is a rule for Unreal) Unreal Championship 2 has the highest replay value of any 2005 release yet, and every minute, online or off, is just damn fun.
