    Borderlands isn't perfect. Far from it. But its addictive gameplay and unique features makes it different from the pack.

    However, if you’re not a fan of video game storylines or don’t really care about video games as a medium, Prince of Persia is still a great game. There’s plenty of fun to be had with the platforming.

    The controls don’t put a strangle hold on the gameplay, the graphics only have a few hiccups, and the audio is near perfection.

    It really is a breath of fresh air because of its creativity and non-linear gameplay.

    An incredible arcade sports game that goes far beyond what NFL Blitz offered.

    The game provides a ton of fun with its addictive gameplay, solid visuals, outstanding audio, and great control scheme. It may not add as much to the series as its previous installment, but it does have a lot to offer.

    ProControl and On-The-Fly Coaching are ground-breaking innovations. And as mentioned before, they've allowed for innovation without forcing you to break the bank to experience it.

    Despite the less-impressive graphics, the game holds its own with its balanced fights, new punches, and replayability.

    If you enjoyed those fierce ping pong competitions at summer camp then you owe it to yourself to give Table Tennis a try. Single player is quite challenging and multiplayer matches ought to be considered a spectator sport in itself.

    NHL 07 takes hockey videogames in an entirely new direction. After years of only minor changes, EA has changed everything for the better.

    Command & Conquer 3 is proof that the 360 is just as able to deliver a solid RTS experience.

    In closing, while Devil May Cry 4 seems to be a hard fit in the series due to Dante’s significantly reduced role, the gameplay is as tight, stylish and entertaining as it ever was.

    Mirror’s Edge has an excellent but short singleplayer campaign with a few added whistles.

    If you enjoyed the original, have younger children or just like light-hearted same console competition, you’ll definitely want to grab FF2 for 800 Microsoft points. Time to warm up those chompers and have some fun!

    If there was a game to dethrone Halo 2 as multiplayer king, it'd be TimeSplitters: Future Perfect. This game's multiplayer is just incredibly fun, offering tons of variation as well as multiplayer bots to fit whatever your heart desires.

    The audio is fantastic, and most importantly, its gameplay is superb. HotSwapping is a distinctive new feature, and makes the single-player campaign worth playing.

    Its competent story-mode, coupled with a variety of multi-player modes available online or off, Rainbow Six: Vegas is certainly a solid title, and one not to be missed by any fan of shooters.

    There are plenty of battles to fight through, collectibles to discover, and techniques to perfect in Hell’s Highway, and I fully recommend purchasing.

    Skate’s intuitive, but incredibly deep control scheme and extremely realistic physics model feel wonderful in motion. If you’re looking for a realistic approximation of skateboarding, look no further. Skate will not disappoint.

    Luckily, the gameplay stays true to its roots, favoring fast paced action over realistic football. As a result, those who have been Madden fans in the past should definitely grab this one, and those who have not enjoyed past titles should hold out against the marketing tidal wave.

    All told, Guitar Hero 3 is another solid, worthy entry into an already highly-successful series. While not all of the changes and additions made benefit the game, the core gameplay is still there and that’s more than enough to make the game appeal to Guitar Hero veterans.

    If you missed Bully the first time around, scholarship edition is a great game to pick up.

    What is very clear to anyone who plays Red Faction Guerilla is that there is no other game quite like it.

    If you're a fan of dual-stick shooters, or want a game that accurately represents the genre, there’s no better choice than Assault Heroes 2.

    Overall this game provides a swashbucklingly good time through fun mini-games and a great theme.

    A solid game that is lacking in a few departments. The in-game additions are fantastic, but changes need to be made to 'Franchise Mode'. Additionally, I really wanted to see Free4All available on Xbox Live, because it makes no sense to have this mode of play only offline.

    This version is just as fun and exciting as before, but it isn’t an incredible leap forward.

    Lumines is a great puzzler that puts the other old and tired puzzle games on XBL Arcade to shame.
