    A must-have for any fighting fanatic, Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike Online Edition is a mandatory purchase for anyone who loves the art of one-on-one hand-to-hand combat. Absolutely recommended.

    Hopefully this is a sign of things to come. For those of us who aren't into portables it's always deflating to miss out on a part of a series. Thankfully we can now enjoy both of these games at their absolute best.

    The storyline does an amazing job of slowly expanding in scope (though it does bog down a bit in the middle of the game, most of the stuff it trudges through stays relevant well after the scope of the game has outgrown the smaller conflict), and the twists will absolutely knock you on your ass, while battles are fast, interesting and offer a nicely customizable way to trudge through the grind of leveling up all your characters.

    X-Men Origins: Wolverine might not be the most original title, but what it does it does very, very well.

    If that isn't a pair of dream tracklists, I don't know what is.

    Revengeance only falters in its overall length. There's plenty of replay value, of course, but this is one of the rare times when gameplay can't quite overcome the lack of a meaty core experience. Still, this is a game not to be missed, folks.

    Yes, the load times absolutely get in the way of the fun, but they don't overwhelm it, and in the end ModNation Racers is the best kart racer this generation.

    Technically more of the same without any major advances to the series, something that keeps it from being a marked advance in what the first game started...If any one area of the game got the most subtle tweaks that made the biggest difference, it’s in the graphical overhaul.

    An absolutely brilliant game, and one that does more to stir the emotions than any AAA epic you've like played in recent memory.

    F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin is as disturbing as it is satisfying. No, it's not perfect, but it certainly offers a lot of entertainment.

    The freelance police are back and in top form. Telltale could not have picked a better game with which to make their PlayStation debut.

    A few nagging but workable issues prevent Scott Pilgrim from a perfect score, but you will not find a brawler out there that looks as unique, sounds as great, and packs as much fun in it as this one.

    A true improvement in every way The BIGS 2 proves Blue Castle Games wasn't just a one-hit wonder, and they've established themselves as the premier torch bearer for arcade sports games. Even sports game haters will find plenty to love here.

    Incredibly solid, full of humor, and packed with enough variety in gameplay to keep you coming back for a long while, it made it worth sitting through 50 games mired in crappy control or graphics.

    While it does more iterating than innovating this year, FIFA stands alone atop a somewhat small heap of competition to remain the soccer game you want if you only want one soccer game.

    Want to make an a capella trance song using only your voice? Want to sample a child's nursery rhyme and turn it into a new hip-hop beat? Want to lay down the thickest, sickest breaks you can think of? Traxxpad lets you do it, and it rocks.

    CoN is as graphically polished and diverse a hack and slash as you can get and is easily one of the most visually impressive games on the PS2.

    A great installment that any college football fan will enjoy (and has probably put hundreds of hours into already). With a good group of friends for an online dynasty this game won't leave your PS3's disc tray anytime soon.

    It's Soul Calibur. Even with the words mushed together and a few tag-along modes that probably should never have been included, it's still the best two-player fighting experience on consoles, and it continues to be refined.

    It's a beat-em-up, and so there will inevitably be someone complaining that it's repetitious, but the different micro-games should help stave them off for a while.

    I'm still waiting until we get a modern assassin game out of this universe, but until then Black Flag breathes a whole new energy back into the series. It also looks stunning on the PlayStation 4 and offers a lot of bang for your buck.

    The best PoP yet, simple as that. A kick ass storyline and gameplay that fixes the mistakes of the past game while building on the strengths of it and the original, this is an experience that everyone should partake in.

    Onimusha 3, if meant to be the series’ swan song, is as polished, refined, challenging, rewarding and just plain fun as a game of this type is ought to be. Stop reading this review right now (cause, well, it’s over) and get to your nearest store to pick up a copy of this game.

    So awesome, in fact, that like "Daxter" or "Liberty City Stories" or "WipEout Pure," it's worth buying the PSP for. It's absolutely a system seller, though obviously you'll want to be familiar with the series before you go dropping some $300 on the system and game.

    The classic comedic saying that you should always leave 'em wanting more has never rung more true in an RPG. After more than a few missteps, Xenosaga recovers beautifully, and the result is one of the must-have RPGs for the PlayStation 2, without a doubt.

    Genuinely tough puzzles mixed with constant and varied challenges from enemies and bosses alike make this of the best mixes of old-school action and progressive gameplay themes ever seen in games.

    I was starting to get worried that maybe Final Fantasy VII just shouldn't be revisited with some of the previous games, but Crisis Core blows any doubt out of the water. Get this game, and then join us in praying for a PS3 remake.

    Costing less than $10, it wouldn't be a stretch to say that most players will play this well over 10 times: it offers fast paced twin-stick shooter action that is hard to beat. SSHD sets the golden standard for future PSN games to strive for.

    "The Tomb of Sammun-Mak" is fun, funny and smart. The Devil's Playhouse continues to impress.

    It's more action-driven, the setting feels more natural, and the gameplay has been refined enough that I think it could seriously hook MGS fans looking for something tide them over between Metal Gear Online matches or kill time until "MGS4" finally arrives.
