    In the case of GTA 4, I think there's a little bit of over hype and expectations being overly high, but when the finished product is as good as what's on offer here, then it's satisfying that GTA 4 certainly delivers a full and rounded package that will please the vast majority.

    A brilliant balance between graphics and gameplay that must be seen, and experienced, to be believed.

    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.

    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.

    Perhaps not as groundbreaking as we were led to believe or even hoped for prior to release but an immense and masterful game all the same, as they say if it's not broken don't fix it!

    Red Dead Redemption takes the whole genre of Western style games and redefines it in a way that no other game has done.

    The gameplay, while brilliant and innovative, can drag a bit at times, but the writing carries the game through those times, and the mostly great graphics and perfect audio seal the deal. There's a lot more content than most may be expecting, too. On the whole, it's an amazing game from a company known for making amazing games. It's a truly worthwhile sequel that lives up to its predecessor, and that alone is rare enough that the game is worth checking out.

    Sure, Gears of War doesn't really offer much that is new to the shooter genre but in the same token provides an experience that is extremely well polished and more importantly, fun to play.

    If there was ever a game that could be described as having the ultimate longevity then this would perhaps be it, although I must say a little self control is possibly required.

    The game really does deliver an unprecedented military experience, which although might lack the total realism of the Clancy games, does provide an all out assault on the senses.

    More weapons, more vehicles and some very exciting game modes which I expect and hope that future titles incorporate too. Has Bungie delivered on the hype? I most certainly think so.

    I am truly amazed at how this game can interest nearly all types of gamers with the ability to play Chaos Theory either by stealth or action.

    Technically, Burnout 3: Takedown is not as realistic or advanced graphically as an xbox specific title such as "PGR2," but this is an arcade racer with arcade racing visuals.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is a must have game and one that should stay in your collection...period.

    Massive ruins, and expansive forest. The water is top-notch, and the character animation is superb!

    It is the first time that any game allows players to play from a third-person perspective against others playing in the first person view. With eight maps to play on, all very different from each other and three types of game-play, this game will last you for a very long time.

    Braid is to date the best overall game I’ve played from the Xbox Live Arcade. I say this not only because the puzzles are fresh and creative, but the story has a meaning that actually invokes emotions the way a good book or movie can.

    Street Fighter IV is certainly a grand entry for the series this generation. Although we have had some of the older games appear on the XBLA, this new game undoubtedly provides an unadulterated fighting experience that has been worth the wait.

    For all Fallout 3’s ideas, innovations, and excellent hybrid of game genres, it’s not without its flaws.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    It's simply the gameplay, graphics and sound all being at an incredibly high level and it all seemingly complimenting one another to create one of the most satisfying sci-fi/action experiences currently available in gaming.

    All in all, Rock Band 3 represents the pinnacle of the music game genre to this point.
    • 93 Metascore

    I like San Andreas as it offers so much to mess around with on an unprecedented level.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    So full of character and style that you will find it hard to put the controller down.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Rock Band is an excellent addition to the Xbox 360 line-up of games, and I'm sure Harmonix and EA will make good use of the equipment for future titles.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The first ever true driving simulation to arrive on the Xbox console has achieved the highest standards in terms of graphics, sound, realism and playability.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    There really is something for everyone here, and with the game's more laid back approach is less daunting for the inexperienced and more rewarding for the pros.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A worthy and worthwhile purchase if there ever was one during the closing moments of the Summer.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    If you own any of the previous Madden games than personally I wouldn't bother buying this game.
    • 91 Metascore

    The complete package that is Super Street Fighter IV should no doubt be in every beat 'em up fans gaming collection.
    • 91 Metascore

    The few camera issues that you may have are merely teething troubles and will soon make way to pure unadulterated ninja killing with style and flair. This game has Xbox classic written all over it.
