    Battlefield 3 may not be the absolute powerhouse I desired; as it still suffers from some irritating glitches and a mediocre campaign. If you're not going online, there really isn't enough to recommend this game. The multiplayer stands as a game on its own and is the absolute reason to pick up Battlefield 3 ASAP. If it isn't all the unlockables that keeps you playing month after month, it will certainly be the exposure to a massive online shooter that creates a different experience with every match.

    This game is definitely not for everybody. If you don't have Xbox Live, prefer to play games by yourself, or just don't have very much patience, you should probably pass on this.

    The design is quite inspired for a product designed for younger players, and the presentation is surprisingly high in value.

    Fans should enjoy it, but, for us, it just covers too much of the same territory we plowed through before. Give us Dead Rising 3 already…and not Dead Rising 2.5 or 2.7.

    If there is one weak area, though, it's the soundtrack. Some of Forza 4's tunes are pretty good, but the techno tracks are kinda forgettable.

    The animation is superb and the backdrops look exquisite.

    It's still a hell of a relaunch to a long-running series, an imaginative – and captivating – trip through various game types, including overhead bombing and some breathtaking dogfights. If you thought Wings of Liberation was a nice piece of flight fun, you haven't seen anything yet.

    Unparalleled presentation, in-depth options and smooth-as-butta gameplay.

    The story is tight and fast-paced; the presentation really shows Beenox's improvements over the past few months; and the gameplay is engaging, even if there's not much actual web-slinging to do this time around.

    The gameplay, both driving and shooting, is wild, gory fun; the graphics raise the bar on how a next-generation product is supposed to look; the audio is top-quality; and the multiplayer stuff that does exist is more than enough to keep you and your fellow gamers busy.

    If you're more experienced and have an idea of what you might be getting into here, it's worth the pain and suffering – in a twisted way. The presentation is top-notch material; the gameplay, though punishing, does pick up over the course of the game; and the multiplayer is surprising, mainly because you don't know whether to expect a friend or foe.

    Even if you aren't an avid fan of soccer, you owe it to yourself to check this title out and see just how good a sports game gets.

    Silicon Knights may not be treading into its Eternal Darkness territory here, but at least it's steering clear of its Too Human regime. This Destiny's got some weight behind it.

    It falls short in all areas, and even its over-the-top brutality can't save it from being a mundane effort.

    This is one of the better values you can get for your buck right now, and proof positive that Twisted Pixel is gonna do just fine on the retail front.

    The gameplay is both intuitive and entertaining, while the presentation goes head and shoulders over most other shooters out there. You might have missed it the first time around on the Saturn – but whatever you do, don't miss it this time.

    Gears of War 3 is the game all Gears Fans have dreamt of since playing the first title back in 2006.

    If there is one aspect of this game that is brilliantly executed, though, it's the presentation.

    Small issues aside (including the lack of co-op on the disc), Warhammer 40K Space Marine is an epic battle that deserves your time and attention. The multiplayer, despite being barebones, is great fun, and the single player campaign offers plenty of blood to spill, even if you're a newbie to Games Workshop's world.

    San Francisco has been faithfully re-rendered, down to every street block and tourist spot. And you can easily view and zip to events on a map using a useful HUD that shows you where everything is. The characters look great, too, and, thankfully, they never get out of the car to run around, like they did in Driver 2. This is one smooth-looking ride, baby.

    We're quite impressed with how well the Kinect controls worked in Rise of Nightmares. The combat itself, while repetitive is sloppy fun, as you lop off heads and kick someone back into the middle of next week – or maybe even an elaborate trap. Still, more could've been done with walking.

    NHL 12 just adds in the Icing on the Cake with the fine tuning put into this year's game. Whether it's the new Presentation or additions to Be a Pro, NHL 12 is a phenomenal sports game.

    Dead Island joins the ranks of other zombie games like Dead Rising and Left 4 Dead as one of the best experiences in the genre. While the melee combat and first-person perspective will take some time to get used it, the experience is absolutely rewarding, especially if you can gather up a group of fine zombie killers to come with you for the ride in co-op.

    While its limited multiplayer and even more limited AI will keep it from being as legendary as, well, the other A-list stuff, it's still worth a look, mainly because of its entertaining weapons play and its solid visuals. If you're in the mood for an off-the-grid shooter or just want to blow shit up while you wait for EA's masterstroke, lock and load.

    I have enjoyed my 2 weeks with Madden NFL 12 more than any other football game I have played Bar-None.

    The graphics are really outstanding for a game of this type, and the combat/stealth/social scenarios are second-to-none, giving you a wide range of choices, whether it's how you play through the game or adapt your body to make situations fare better in your favor.

    The presentation is inspired, and the gameplay maintains a careful balance of strategic thinking and crazy action.

    A game for all ages to enjoy. That is the rarest kind of game to behold these days, and each game that fits this description is a treasure to be respected.

    Though El Shaddai could've used a little more replay value (or perhaps even some online multiplayer – not just leaderboard support), this game definitely looks and sounds like the sort of product that deserves multiple playthroughs, if only to relive its majesty for repeat visits and see what a talented development team can do.
