    Gorgeous from top to bottom, simultaneously old-school and yet nicely updated and an absolute joy to play Odin Sphere is a monumental achievement in art design and execution. Now if we could just get it all in HD.

    Buzz! Quiz TV is a stellar trivia game, and pushes the genre forward more than most will probably give it credit for.

    Once you get a game going, the online aspect of Vegas far and away shines as the biggest selling point, but there's no discounting the single-player game either -- even if the ending is a little blah. Better late than never, Vegas rocks.

    Go buy Hammerin' Hero, especially if you've been whining about the lack of good PSP games. This is one of them. You need it.

    With an intriguing Story mode, addicting Arcade battles, and a Challenge mode that truly puts you to the test, it’s no secret that the key features that made "GoldenEye" such a hit leaked its way into the TimeSplitters world.

    If you are just purchasing a PlayStation2, and are considering an investment in a good strategy/fighting game, look no further.

    The gameplay is solid, the graphics are on par with the upper echelon of current games, and sound is very respectable.

    Not as groundbreaking as it should have been. It may be hard to admit, but "Virtua Fighter 4" has taken a giant leap compared to Tekken 4’s bunny hop. But now that Namco has hit the nail on the head when it comes to fighting depth and detail, it is time for change.

    More than good, really, more situated in the whole “amazing/incredibly addictive/cleverly balanced” extreme.

    The most flattering way to look at Bad Company 2 is as an intense online shooter with a slightly dodgy singleplayer mode included as a free bonus.

    Despite its goofy and, possibly to some, even tasteless look, HSGF! is one of the most enjoyable golf games on the market, and surely the finest I’ve ever come across in its field.

    Inferno Pool may well end up being one of the hidden gems of the PlayStation Network.

    Make no mistake, Red Card 20-03 is NOT a soccer sim, though it does a good job of recreating a surface representation of the game. It IS an incredibly fun, addictive and enjoyable experience.

    It not only piles on an extensive list of race types in addition to the rally courses Codemasters has become famous for, but heaps on new kinds of vehicles and manages to pull it off with some of the best presentation I've ever seen in a racing game.

    I never thought I'd see the day a Sly game actually got less than a 9 from me, but there are some serious flubs here that get in the way of what is an otherwise incredible platforming experience. It's still great, but it could have been better.

    LittleBigPlanet Karting jumps ModNation Racers up to the next level and gives the PS3 a viable competitor to the Nintendo karting powerhouse. The creation tools shine as the best in the business.

    Everything the first game was and more. It's a deeper experience, it's more quirky and unique without losing sight of the best bits that made it so fun.

    EA Sports has, year after year, put out a Madden title that made playing professional football that much more real to the millions who will never get a chance. Madden NFL '09 is no exception.

    The trip is greater than the eventual destination. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy wrapping things up with a nice, meaty ending, but there's so much good stuff along the way that I didn't mind (despite what expletives may have erupted from my office) some of the more annoying parts of the game.

    Black Ops is neither a revolution nor a revelation, almost scaling to the summit of a stale genre, while not quite managing to plant the flag.
    • 77 Metascore

    While it's by no means a perfect game, gamers looking for great shooter experience with an enjoyable story and enthralling world need not look further.

    Though it's hardly perfect, Fat Princess is nevertheless one of the most enjoyable and multi-faceted multiplayer experiences on the PS3 right now. Grab a headset and get to slaughtering; that princess isn't going to gorge herself, you know!

    With TXR Zero, gamers not only get a PlayStation 2 version of the game, but they get the best one, hands down.

    Further proving that it's unnecessary to fix something that never broke, Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational keeps true to its series roots while offering a ton of content and good times. A treat for anyone who enjoys golf or fun.

    Fireteam Bravo 3 is definitely not a flawless portable experience, however that doesn't mean that it's not a ton of fun to let your team breach and clear rooms full of terrorists.

    They took a big risk in doing something other than a cartoony platform and in many respects Uncharted is a success, but slightly sloppy gunplay and some absolutely infuriating parts of the game hold it back from being a true killer app. On sheer graphical merits alone the game is a must-buy, but as a complete game, we'll have to wait to see how the sequel turns out to know for sure if this is gaming's equivalent of an Indiana Jones flick.

    Resistance: Retribution is one of the best games on the PSP, plain and simple.

    Polished, tweaked and streamlined, this is Ninja Gaiden 2 done a half-step better.

    I never thought I'd see the day I gave a Gran Turismo game less than a 9. And then GT PSP happened. The disappointment continues, but it's abated by what I can only hope are continued, frequent updates.

    This is a odyssey everyone should experience.
