    Grand Theft Auto IV is undoubtedly one of the strongest games of this generation. The amount of content is simply mind-blowing.

    Buy this game or you might as well consider yourself a non-video game fan. Congratulations, Retro Studios. You lived up to the task of meeting the master.

    The attention to detail blew me away. The graphics are beyond anything I imagined.

    The game, simply put, looks absolutely spectacular...The best thing about the graphics is how great the game will look and perform on today's entry-level rigs.

    Folks, if you were looking for not only the best survival/horror game ever made, and not only what is arguably the best game to ever grace the Gamecube platform, but one of the best action/adventure games of this current era of video games, your search is now over.

    In the end, The Orange Box is worth more than your $60. The Half-Life 2 games alone could comfortably sell at that price, but the addition of the surprisingly fun Portal and the incredibly deep Team Fortress 2 make this a must-have game.

    Miyamoto has done it again. The Wind Waker is a definite masterpiece. Link's brand new adventure is as beautiful as it could be and everything's just too good to say it's kiddy.

    The game’s targeting system has been improved and is very reminiscent of the developer’s "Manhunt," which overall makes it more cohesive. The game allows you to get better with guns and you’ll have different phases, which will give you more control over your shooting abilities.

    The best and most ambitious game of the year, and it is also one that everyone should play before Lieberman gets his old throat to Congress.

    LittleBigPlanet is one of those games that seemingly comes out of nowhere and redefines what you think is possible in a videogame.

    For the first time ever, I was actually dumbfounded when I found myself standing on a large wasteland area, surrounded by rocks and rolling hills. I was actually intimidated by the dusky skies over head, and the burning cityscapes in the background, and how miniscule you feel really makes you realize just how great of a world Bungie has created.

    Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare shows that you don’t have to revolutionize a series to invigorate it.

    Some games nail the gameplay mechanics, others have an amazing art style, some are incredibly fun to play, and yet others are amazing technical achievements. It’s rare that a game has all of those qualities, but Epic Games’ Gears of Wars does.

    The main quest, side quests, townspeople, graphics, open-endedness, etc combine to make one of the best videogames available on any console.

    It’s the Halo sequel that fans have been demanding. And it’s the game that’s going to sell a lot of Xbox 360s.

    The only real gripe against the game is that the control isn't as intuitive as it can be. There are many options in a given situation, and the game still relies on the same context-sensitive menu system, which is a bit cumbersome.

    A strong candidate for the coveted Game of the Year award, Burnout 3: Takedown is one of the best arcade racing games to come out in years.

    The additional extras, online play and camera angle really manage to make the game nearly flawless. Even if you’ve played the original, the changes are worth picking the game up again.

    Everything from the game screams high production values. The visuals are amazing, the audio is remarkable, and the gameplay is top-notch. It all comes together in a rare package.

    The game changes dramatically whether you're male, female, light or dark, or even try to stay on a neutral path. Anyway you look at it; there are LOTS of reasons to play this many times.

    It doesn’t revolutionize the series but the series is hardly is need of such a change.

    While it lacks innovation in the single player portion, I don't think anyone else could have crafted such a unique way to play the game in multiplayer. If you're planning on playing online, it's a must have game.

    Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars is an incredibly impressive game and probably the most technically impressive game on the Nintendo DS.

    It doesn’t reinvent the wheel but for some 12 hours we’re seeing tighter, nimbler combat, fantastic level designs, and great gameplay. GOW II is undoubtedly better than its prequel and ultimately one of the best games on any last generation console.

    Oblivion does a lot of things extremely well, and everything else very well. It’s hard to find anything to complain about here.

    Gears of War 2 is a stellar shooting game and easily one of the best games of the year.

    A pretty good game, but it could be way better. Some of the matches are very easy, I beat the final level just by kicking him to death, never used a weapon.

    The game is incredibly fun. It will surely take up hundreds of hours to even the most casual of gamers.
