    It's not merely the fact that Rockstar have taken an already engaging gameworld and rebuilt it from the ground up, it's the fact that they've done that, and shoehorned in realistic weather systems, day to night transitions, realtime lighting, realistic character movement and animation, realistic physics and kinetics, incidental details, solid and well written dialogue, convincing AI and non-player characters and a multiplayer system that puts other games to shame.

    It never once became boring and the use of mixing weapons and plasmids makes for some pretty spectacular battles.

    Overall, Mass Effect 2 is a title that everyone has to experience. As fun as the first title was it did have its own share of issues. It’s refreshing to see a development team take in all of the criticism from their previous title and use it to improve upon their concept for the sequel.

    This is a title that deserves a spot in your gaming library. The environments are stunning, the level of control you have over your own experience is amazing and, simply put, Skyrim is an epic experience.

    Thoroughly enjoyable, superbly atmospheric and deliciously detailed, it performs the enviable task of giving Rockstar yet another solid IP to produce a series of games from.

    Overall, Portal 2 is an absolutely amazing title. Everyone (including myself) was disappointed when Portal 2 was delayed earlier this year, however, it was more than worth the wait. Portal 2 is a masterpiece that I can see myself playing for years.

    Not only is this a really amazing Batman title, it is a really amazing action adventure title overall. My only complaint is that some of the boss battles were a little annoying, however, the game overall is a masterpiece.

    One of those rare instances where the developer exceeded expectations and over delivered.

    The campaign, while short, is epic and a lot more intense then the original Modern Warfare. The enemy A.I. is a lot smarter and will make you rethink your tactics from time to time.

    Epic really seems to have nailed how to get the most out of the Xbox 360 hardware and it shows with each new release. The bottom line is this: If you own an Xbox 360 Gears of War 3 is one of those games that you must own.

    You can tell that Ubisoft put an incredible amount of work into this title and the development team should be proud of what they accomplished.

    Proving once and for all that two staples of videogaming – 2D and Platforming – are definitely not dead, and even proving that you don't need a garish palette of colours to convey a massive breadth of emotions, Limbo is technically polished, extremely playable and more than a little bit sick in the head in places, but as a 360 owner you owe it to yourself to get hold of this game.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    If you were a fan of the original I would definitely say to download this sequel and enjoy. If you are new to the series, download the demo and you will be hooked in no time.

    That rare beast, an Xbox Live Arcade title that offers fantastic value for money. An instant cult classic that reeks of coolness and belongs firmly on your 360’s hard drive.

    • 90 Critic Score
    Overall, Fable 2 is a fantastic game. Lionhead did a great job in bringing the world of Albion to life on the XBox360 and you could spend many, many hours simply exploring the world of Albion.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Overall this is another incredibly polished game by Valve. I know there were a lot of people worried because of how quickly this sequel came out, however, Valve seems to have hit a home run with this one.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Overall this is a fantastic game to play with friends. If you can get a good group of guys together playing this you will have a blast.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Fun in spades, slightly easier and quicker to complete than previous episodes but with plenty of new stuff to bring a new sheen to those grubby city streets, The Ballad of Gay Tony is worth the 1600 points it’ll cost you, and if you’ve previously ignored the preceding tale from Liberty City, The Lost and Damned, you can buy both as a handy boxed catch-up package (probably a wise move if your broadband connection is as crappy as mine).

    Generally speaking Dead Space is a fantastic experience.

    Overall, L.A. Noire is an absolutely amazing title. The development team over at Team Bondi and Rockstar have hit a homerun here and have set the bar for any future titles in this genre.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Quite simply put, this is probably the best way to spend 800 points on the Marketplace so far this year, and a game that offers a great deal of simple harmless gameplay with an addictive bite that’ll see you neglecting other more deep and meaningful gaming experiences for a bit of guilty casual gaming pleasure.

    A thrilling ride hampered by some original but overall annoying design choices.

    Shadow Complex takes a classic formula and brings it in to the high definition era giving us a beautiful experience, in more ways than one. It is well worth the asking price and a title that everyone needs to try out. Be sure not to miss out.

    Modern Warfare 3 succeeds in every area and the development teams at both Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games should be extremely proud.

    The star of the game though is undoubtedly the setting, and though I’ve enjoyed Bioshock 2 a lot less than the first game I am pretty sure that if 2K have got a third game in mind, I’ll be unable to resist the temptation to go back to Rapture once more.

    In essence then, the utterly superb gameplay and unrivalled feel of this iteration of the Street Fighter series makes it a nigh-on essential purchase, despite the slightly naff reworked graphics.

    • 90 Critic Score
    Overall Battlefield Bad Company 2 is a fantastic title. It does have its share of bugs and glitches, however, the package as a whole is fantastic.

    If you are a racing fan then you need to give Dirt 3 a chance. Even if you are just a casual fan be sure not to overlook this game. You might be pleasantly surprised with what you find as this is a game for the hardcore and casual fan alike.

    It’s a deep multi-layered game that boxing fans absolutely should not miss out on, and even if you find boxing a little distasteful, you can’t deny that it’s one heck of a game.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Even if you are someone who tends to like their racers more “arcade-y” you owe it to yourself to give this title a chance. You might be surprised by how much you like it.

    Race Driver: GRiD can be described as the pinnacle of Codemasters' efforts to produce a racing game that injects a breath of fresh air into the genre, coupling delicious visuals and sublime handling with a feeling that every successfully won race is truly earned, and every sneaky win at the expense of the impressively unpredictable AI is no hollow victory.

    Simply put, Trials HD is one of the best Xbox Live Arcade titles ever, and a seriously nice showcase for the machine too.

    The amount of detail that was put into this game is astounding and it is also, graphically speaking, one of the most beautiful fighters out there. Be sure not to miss out on this round of Mortal Kombat.

    • 95 Critic Score
    Overall, Dance Central 2 is a pretty amazing Kinect game. Harmonix has packed it full with features and it should keep you busy for quite a while. This is by far the best Kinect dance game and a pretty good leap from the original Dance Central.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    Overall Bastion is an exceptional title and a tremendous start to the 2011 Summer of Arcade promotion. This is the first title from Supergiant Games and they have hit a home run with it.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The mechanics of the game are such that both newcomers and seasoned veterans should be comfortable in the ring. For the more hardcore player you can manage a fighter in Legacy mode or go online and challenge the world. For the more casual fan they will get a kick out of Champion mode as well challenging their friends to a bout.

    If you are a fan of third person cover shooters then you should definitely give Max Payne 3 a try. It is an entertaining and visceral journey through Sao Paulo and one I intend on experiencing again.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is a game that everyone really must play and, hopefully, other developers will pick up on some of the ideas in this title, mainly the excellent cover system. Be sure not to miss out on Splinter Cell Conviction.

    Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock delivers on nearly all counts. A fix for the online issues and this could very well be the best of the franchise.

    Overall, this new Lara Croft game is a great accomplishment for the developers. I have really enjoyed all of the Tomb Raider games this generation, however, with that said, this breathes in some fresh air to a franchise some feel has gone stale.

    If you are a fan of the rhythm genre I would say to definitely give this game a try. If you are a music aficionado then I would definitely recommend giving the music studio feature a try. There is definitely something for everyone.

    Overall, Marvel vs Capcom 3 is a fantastic fighting title. It doesn't do anything particularly innovative or ground breaking but it doesn't need to. In fact, there is a certain segment of the hardcore fanbase that would probably get upset if Capcom were to make too many changes.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score

    UFC Undisputed 3 offers a tremendous amount of content. It is the best UFC title to date and one you shouldn't miss out on.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A fantastic update for a classic title. It is in widescreen so you don’t have to worry about the bars on either side of your screen like some other past titles. This is yet another stellar title in Microsoft’s “Summer of Arcade” and is well worth the admission fee.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    To summarise, love the visuals and explore the fantastic gameworld Ubisoft have created but don’t expect anything ground-breaking or life-changing because this just isn’t as innovative as it wants to be.

    Your enjoyment of Battlefield 3 will be dependent on what you want out of it. If you are the type of gamer who only wants to play the game for its story then I would highly suggest you rent this game first so that you know what you are getting in to. The multiplayer is really where the fun is here and if you have been a fan of the franchise in the past then you should have a great time here.

    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    The game has a complete stylish feel to it and considering that this… pretty much is just is a hack and slash button masher, the fact that the game is so much fun to play, leaves you not caring about sore fingers.

    If you are a fan of shooters at all then you definitely need to give this game at try. If you take this game too seriously you are not going to enjoy it. You need to go into it with an open mind and a sense of humor. Simply sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.

    Overall, taking into account the general atmosphere the game builds for you, the graphics and the excellent soundtrack, as well as looking at level layout, storyline etc. I’d personally (and I’m laying my life on the line here a little) have to say this is the best Halo game yet. Even if it is a bit short.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The fighting physics and the technical aspect of this game have been done well. If I had a gripe it would be that the Tekken fighters are harder to use at first, but practice is key in this game. Go buy this, seriously.
