    Mario Kart 7 offers up some StreetPass functionality this time around. You can view stranger's profiles, stats, VR rating, and even acquire ghost data for you to beat.

    Oblivion is good, but it's a flawed good. It's a different experience in many ways to previous Elder Scrolls games, but, at the same time, it's still the familiar world Elder Scrolls fans know and love. It has the usual kickass story, but the difficulty curve is a bit wobbly, to say the least, and, in general, it's a story of give and take.

    On the one hand, the bare bones of the game are there, the potential is there, and I wouldn't trust many devs outside of Kerberos to patch this to a decent state. On the other, regardless, it's going to take at least a few months to patch it to a state where it's not just "sort of playable", it's actually enjoyable. But if you feel like helping nurture a game to completion, by all means fork out. Those of you who are more cautious, hang back a few months, it should be cool by then.

    In the end, if you have never played the original, or are looking for a walk down memory lane, then Halo Anniversary is definitely for you.

    WWE '12 is more polished than the previous installments in the series, right down to the graphics, music, sound effects, and the expanded gameplay options.

    With complete single-player and multiplayer modes, it offers a wide-variety of gameplay.

    The level design itself is great, with many different types of levels providing different challenges.

    On the surface Saints Row: The Third may seem just like a violent, over the top video game without any substance, but that is far from the truth. I quickly found the game is not only extremely violent and insanely fun, but it also carries an interesting and fairly compelling story.

    For fans of the series Uncharted 3 is a more than a competent and completely rewarding continuation of the Nathan Drake saga and worthy of a purchase this holiday season.

    The music is tight, the game's easy enough that newcomers can quickly get the hang of it, the visuals are downright beautiful, and, overall, I'd say buy this game.

    Overall, Disney Universe is one of the more charming games to arrive on the PS3 this holiday season. The game never takes itself too seriously and manages to effective accomplish what it set out to do and that is please Disney fans. While the game may lack some depth, it makes up for its shortcomings with some enjoyable co-op gameplay, slick visuals and lovable characters.

    I think Motionsports Adrenaline comes up a bit short. At the end of the day it is not a bad game but there are better motion control games out there.

    Call of Duty manages to raise the bar with each game that arrives year after year and Modern Warfare 3 is no exception, except this time the franchise has made a much bigger leap than it has in years past. For starters, the online game is the deepest and richest CoD multiplayer experience to date and the Spec Ops co-operative mode is worth the price of admission alone.

    GoldenEye 007: Reloaded brings the classic game into the modern world. With solid visuals and sound, and some pretty good gameplay, both single player and multiplayer wise, one would be silly not to take a close look at this spy/espionage game in this day when there are so many warfare oriented shooters.

    Lord of the Rings: War in the North isn't the most innovative or original experience you will play on the Xbox 360, yet the co-op gameplay is very enjoyable. I can certainly see many gamers sitting back with their buddies enjoying mashing away through the games many levels while living out their LOTR fantasies.

    Frogger Decades is an enjoyable reimagining of a gaming classic.

    I can't help but think if Rocksmith had come out years ago before any of the other music/rhythm games that use a virtual guitar it would probably be the premier guitar based video game. That being said, Rocksmith is quite a different game and can stand alone in its own genre, as there is nothing available on the market that competes with it. Ubisoft has hit the nail on the head with this innovative title.

    Dance Central 2 stands as a significant upgrade over the previous Dance Central game for the Xbox 360 Kinect. The voice command technology, bigger set list, ability to import songs from the previous Dance Central, and enhanced visuals all make for a game that should be under many Christmas trees this holiday season.

    Overall, Kinect Sports Season Two is really just an average game but younger gamers should get a kick out of this one.

    Battlefield 3 is clearly a winner when it comes to the online first person shooter experience. The depth of unlocks and vehicles is astounding and you just can't find it anywhere else. Although the game suffers from a bland single player experience, fans of the series will be spending countless hours online trying to unlock their next weapon attachment or vehicle upgrade.

    Whether you choose to play this one with friends or by yourself, All 4 One is a pretty fun game.

    When it comes to Hunting games, Cabela's Big Game Hunter 2012 is as good as it gets. So for those of you looking for some arcadish, yet a bit on the simulation side, type of virtual hunting, then search no more as Cabela's Big Game Hunter 2012 is for you.

    Return to Dream Land is yet another Nintendo title that should be bought by all, as it is a worthy holiday release for the Wii console indeed.

    Batman: Arkham City is about as good as it gets when it comes to action adventure video games. Engaging storyline, slick combat, superb visuals and deep single player campaign mode makes Batman: Arkham City a must own title this holiday season.

    Despite starting to show signs of age, Professor Layton and The Last Specter is a tremendous value. For under $30 you get a story mode that easily lasts over 10 hours, fun mini-games, bonus content, weekly downloadable puzzles, and an all-new RPG that will keep you coming back to this one for a while.

    Family Feud 2012 Edition is game many should ultimately avoid. Even the most die hard Family Feud fan will find many aspects of this game extremely frustrating. The game feels rushed, incomplete and likely should have arrived in the form of a cheap Xbox Live Arcade game. If you have a hankering for some virtual Family Feud entertainment then you may want to give this one a rent; otherwise, move along.

    Okay, so it was vaguely interesting for me, but, train nuts out there, by all means add a point or two to the score. It's a niche sim, but it does exactly what it says on the tin, does it fairly well, and has only a few bugs, none of which are truly gamebreaking due to the nature of the game and its community.

    If you are glutton for punishment and are looking for a hardcore gaming experience that will test your patience and mental toughness, then Dark Souls for the Xbox 360 is for you. Dark Souls does not have any bells or whistles and is a stripped down game meant to kick the crap out of you. While the gameplay, visuals, and sound are far from perfect; Dark Souls does offer up a unique experience for many, but it is certainly not for everyone.

    Priced at $39.99, this collection should have a proud spot in any gamers PS3 collection. The HD doesn't make these games look brand new, but these timeless classics are aesthetically pleasing no matter what year it is.
