    WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2011 is quite possibly the most replayable game on the market to date.

    For a company to follow the typical medieval fantasy fiction in an RPG the title needs to offer features that stand-out; unfortunately, Arcania barely offers a game that is respectfully presentable never mind unique.

    For those of you looking to rekindle the Fable flame and get online and have digital babies, then there's plenty to sink your teeth into. You'll feel right at home with what's on offer, and be glad to make decisions for the greater good. It's an entertaining ride, and one that has the legs to keep you hooked from humble beginnings to royal conclusion.

    Fallout: New Vegas is more a step side-wards for the series, as opposed to a step forwards that some of us may have been expecting.

    In closing, I had no doubt that 2K11 was going to deliver, but this year's edition has taken it to a whole new level, and actually had me surprised at times.

    Vanquish is a wild ride that sometimes tries too hard to be really important. Stilted dialogue, crammed with unnecessary exposition makes it a let down from a narrative point of view and its incredibly short length means it isn't for everyone. Those problems aside, everything about the game is excellent and it is easy to recommend.

    Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 is not so much an evolution, but a revolution.

    For me FIFA 11 feels too much like a step to the side rather than the massive leap forwards we've become accustomed to.

    Dead Space Ignition is a great idea, an optional introduction to a top tier game available as downloadable content. Imagine the opportunities this kind of product could have offered. Instead this game is equal parts frustrating and boring.

    Players that enjoyed the 1st game will no doubt find Thongs of Virtue irresistible as will people new to Death Spank's humorous escapades.

    For fans of the anime, this is a must have game, and to be fair, the new RPG approach might appeal more as a fitting change making the game stand out against its predecessors.

    The game will make a solid addition to anyone's game library and fans will eagerly await the final episode.

    MOH offers a welcome return of form, although totally lacking in features for the solo gamer.

    Dead Rising was an enjoyable experience, full of the undead, a bit of cheese, and a likeable yet somewhat flat protagonist in Frank West. DR 2 ups the ante to provide similar thrills, but overall feels like a much more fuller game.

    Shank, combined with its well thought-out combat and artistic style is a game that certainly appeals to fans of classic side-scrollers and gory romps of gaming mayhem, and earns its worth at 1200 Microsoft points; more so if you're able to experience both modes of play.

    Regardless of its faults, Sonic the Hedgehog 4 is a fun, frantic game that redeems The Fastest Thing Alive in a way that was drastically needed. If you're a Sonic fan who doesn't mind parting with the points, this is one download you certainly won't regret.

    Enslaved is an interesting adventure game that builds on the characters via cinematic direction to affiliate the player with their plight a little more readily. The gameplay is fluid but lacking in depth to really make it stand out.

    Front Mission Evolved is a poor effort that shows a lack of creativity and inspiration.
    • 74 Metascore

    Comic Jumper offers a veritable slice of old school gaming with a sheen of modern polish, a lot of humour to make a game which stands out in the crowd of similar action games.

    While Lords of Shadow breathes new life into the Castlevania franchise, it still has its moments of gaming nostalgia, all the while delivering an experience that is not to be missed.

    With so much riding on the line it's hard to understand why Dark Energy released a game that could have been amazing! The water dynamics were the best part of the game, but were essentially diminished because of the inept camera angles, monotonous missions, and last-gen graphics.

    Tecmo's effort here in Quantum Theory is certainly interesting. While it doesn't meet the high bar set by many other competitors in the genre, it's certainly at least in the pile of good third person shooters, just near the bottom somewhere of that stack marked 'average'.

    Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock laughs in the face of innovation and new ideas, and delivers what it does best, the very formula it invented, perfected, and sold to the masses. The only problem is, we've seen it all before, and some gamers may indeed be looking for fresh ideas and a lot more progression, especially with Rock Band 3 and others on the horizon, and you wonder just how much longer Guitar Hero can last in its present unchanged form.

    At 1200 Microsoft points, Blade Kitten seems a bit steep, but for those who know what they're getting into and who are specifically looking for a uniquely quirky, lovable adventure featuring a cute heroine and an emphasis on exploration, well, this game just might be for you.

    Fans of F1 will happily find enough to keep them busy until next year's inevitable release. For anyone else, you won't find much to hold your attention past the initial handful of seasons.

    All in all, Liars and Cheats is good value for money, offering plenty of new and interesting stuff for the price, but some of the new game types might test your patience a bit.

    If you don't like Space Invaders or Shoot'Em Ups, this won't change your mind. If, on the other hand, you love the arcade feel of the genre and want those games to offer that persistent feeling of accomplishment more modern games offer, buy this game. You could do much worse for 800 Microsoft Points.

    Sonic Adventure isn't worth 800 points, and it absolutely isn't worth 1200 to get the additional content. For 1200 points, you can instead get the entire original Sonic the Hedgehog trilogy, and trust me when I tell you, it's a much better use of your money.

    Even though I love SNK, especially Metal Slug, this just doesn't cut it. At 800 Microsoft points, KOF Sky Stage is about 400 points overpriced for a game that belongs on a cell phone, but only on the cell phone of the most die-hard King of Fighters fan who doesn't have a better option for a quality shooter like R-Type Dimensions.

    Halo: Reach is without doubt Bungie's finest Halo game, and best of all it has the story and structure to the campaign to finally deliver the Halo experience that some of us have been waiting for since the original Halo: Combat Evolved launched on Xbox back in 2002.
