    Despite the annoying bugs NASCAR Heat is now the new King of NASCAR racing games. Excuse me. I think I hear Lynrd Skynrds' White Knuckle Ride on my jukebox. I've got to go beat the Heat.

    Anachronox is full of vibrant color and rich detail, and could easily pass for an "Unreal Tournament"-based game.

    It might not set a record for longevity on your hard drive, but like a good novel, it grabs you from the beginning and doesn't let go until its thrilling conclusion.

    Its non-linear campaign and loads of strategic depth make for a thoroughly engaging experience.

    With a fabulous graphics engine, deep character development and excellent additions to come in the months ahead, AC2 sets a new standard.

    While a SAIS session may only take a few minutes don’t think that will be the only session you play. To paraphrase a famous potato chip commercial, bet you can’t play just once.

    Episode One stays true to everything that made Half-Life 2 great, and tosses in some fresh new content for good measure. It is a wonderful, if not brief, return to the Half-Life world.

    • 88 Critic Score
    The sheer amount of variation, and the small details, found within the game insures that you can play it over and over again and still discover something new.

    Its addictive and amazingly detailed single player game, coupled with a fun and varied old school multi-player game, set Painkiller apart from the rest while at the same time harkening us back to shooter days of old.

    • 88 Critic Score
    A welcome addition to the ever-evolving series with enough new content to make it a worthwhile purchase.

    A great, great game. The story's compelling, the music is outstanding, and the control is excellent.

    A fun RTS game that comes almost as a surprise considering how much hype Blizzard and Westwood RTS games generate.

    A nicely streamlined space 4X game, which hits the right balance between strategy and micro-management.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    It might not go down as one of the classics of our time, but with a great story and fantastic multiplayer, it will spend a good deal of time on many hard drives.

    If you want to turn your Sims 2 game into a business management simulation with more details and customization features than you can shake a stick at, then Open For Business is for you.

    Buy it, download it, whatever; just get on board and enjoy. Sure-fire fun for the online enthusiast.

    Unleashed’s addition of pets (and all that comes with them) to The Sims world fills in one of the few remaining gaps in this popular series and makes it more entertaining than ever.

    We'll be playing this one for a long time.

    Ultimately the game is a little on the shallow side when it comes to mission goals and weapons, but it is fun enough to overlook these shortcomings.

    A great game for fans of Gettysburg! who wanted more, even if it feels like it should have been released quite some time ago.
    • 83 Metascore

    This game will definitely have you saying “just one more battle” deep into the night (or early morning), and fans of the original Icewind Dale can definitely expect more of the same hack-n-slash-y goodness from the sequel.

    Some people won't take to the fact you can only play humans and that there are no orcs or goblins to bash. The fact that you have extreme control over your character's destiny will turn off as many people as it turns on. Yet if you want to experience an original fantasy online RPG -- one that will always have something new to discover -- then Asheron's Call is the place for you.

    An excellent hardcore simulation for the air combat enthusiast, especially one with an appreciation for history.

    A more than worthy successor to the mayoral throne, and by far the best in the series, except for slow-down issues.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    New units, a new race, and a new campaign mixed with the winning formula and presentation of Dawn of War makes for a great expansion worthy of the original.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    Brilliant voice acting, top notch graphics and solid driving physics make this a must-own, despite several flaws.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    Filled with crazy characters from zany drag queens to menacing mafia men, the story line is definitely fun and entertaining.

    If you are looking for a cross between a 3D spreadsheet and "Battlestar Galactica," with a side of patience and a twist of plot, then X2 lands right in your space station.
