    It's the beauty of the unique multiplayer that pushes Four Swords amongst this generations best games. An essential addition to any GC collection.

    A fantastically deep and satisfying fantasy world.

    Short of stepping into the ring yourself, Fight Night Champion is the best possible boxing experience you can hope to find.

    If, however, you're new to MMORPGs, found World of Warcraft too generic and boring, or found that it required too much time investment, you could do far worse than giving Lord of the Rings Online a shot.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    One of the best games on the PSP. It's a step up from Vice City and little enhancements make the game a thoroughly enjoyable portable title.

    • 85 Critic Score
    The best real-time strategy for a long time. If you have been searching for a real-time strategy game your search is over, whether you are a Warhammer 40,000 fan or not.

    Regardless of the clear setbacks and lack of evolution, this is still one of the finest titles available for the Xbox 360. If you don't like tactical shooting, the GRAW series will change your mind. It's that good.

    Skate is a game that really captures the feel of skating.

    While its vulnerability to player population size sometimes takes a toll, Warhammer Online offers a skull-crackling good time.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    NHL 12 is the new benchmark that sports games will aspire to challenge, it's also the best and most complete title that EA Sports has released in years.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The most refined and solid entry in the Advance Wars series yet, though more emphasis on innovation instead of iteration would be a good thing.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A deeply respectful remake of an arcade classic that is as enjoyable and relevant today as it was 20 years ago.

    • 85 Critic Score
    DJ Hero is a very fun music game, with great music and a decent amount of challenge. Personal taste in music may keep some away, but for those that do try it there is plenty to like here.

    Excellent gameplay and an amazing level of detail should make those who enjoy flight sims giddy (and may even convert a few that aren't into amateur flyboys).
    • 86 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    More of a refinement than a revolution, but that doesn't stop DJ Hero 2 from being a truly brilliant and worthwhile addition to the rhythm action scene.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The Wii version doesn't support downloadable content right now, but with a huge track list, a solid mix of songs, and the trusty Guitar Hero formula basically untouched, Legends of Rock is well recommended.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Most definitely one of the best platformers for quite some time, and another Tim Schafer success story, but the game is still a little lacklustre and prevents it from becoming the pick of the crop.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6 Vegas is still an incredible game and is highly recommended. It may be coming a little bit late but you'll be having so much fun you just won't care.

    • 85 Critic Score
    Tales of Monkey Island is an extremely funny romp that is well worth its meager price tag.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    While Viewtiful Joe 2 is more of an extension of the first game than a true sequel, there's no denying that there's some top quality gaming available here.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Another well produced handheld Castlevania, and with at least a few new features for once.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Splinter Cell: Conviction features an engrossing campaign and superb co-operative mode. Ubisoft has implemented some serious changes to advance the series and create a worthy stealth-action game.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The new cities are fantastic; the handling model still hits that perfect balance between fantasy and realism and the sheer amount of things to do, plus its online multiplayer means you be playing it for a long time to come.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    For single player only experience, this game is [60] and below. If you've got the friends and a WiFi connection, the game is [an 80] and above.

    "Burnout 3: Takedown" aside, street racing doesn't come much finer.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of the most refined sports updates we've seen for quite some time.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Sly Trilogy is a slick compendium of three of the most elegant and charming platforming titles of modern times, resulting in a near-faultless package which stands testament to the joys of the most ancient and revered of genres.
    • 85 Metascore

    As the first game to truly establish the balance between a console game and portability, Daxter is arguably the best game on the PSP.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    With a bit more work on the weapons and little less emphasis on the melee combat, this mix of first and third person combat could be a real hit next time around. As it stands, it's still a very good game, but it falls a little short.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Take the Super Street Fighter IV package and stick it on a handheld. They said they were crazy. We say they're brilliant.
