    It is by far one of the most satisfying cooperative experiences out there at the moment and completely overshadows its predecessor.

    If the first Modern Warfare wasn’t your cup of tea, then it’s unlikely the numerous additions and small tweaks will do anything for you here. Yet for anyone else who’s a fan of console first person shooters with plenty of replay value, this is a game that’s definitely worth signing up for.

    Panzer General hits it where it counts – in the gameplay department. If you can get past the weak visuals, you will find a surprisingly good game.

    Borderlands isn't perfect. Far from it. But its addictive gameplay and unique features makes it different from the pack.

    It’s disappointing that this product didn’t achieve as much as it could’ve accomplished, but as a pure thrill-based action game, you could certainly do a lot worse.

    Need for Speed Shift sets out to try and accomplish a number of goals, with the primary two being to deliver an authentic racing experience and potentially revitalize the series. Although it doesn’t quite manage to fully accomplish either of these, this is still a valiant effort that, had it given some more development time, could’ve been a far superior package.

    NHL 10 isn’t going to disappoint you, or for that matter, detract from your overall experience, but the miniscule changes to its gameplay and formula aren’t going to be reeling in any new fans.

    In comparison to other flight action titles, Heroes Over Europe just doesn’t measure up.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 93 Critic Score
    Overall, Batman: Arkham Asylum is a fantastic, exceptional, and an extravagant video game, and revitalizes both the comic-book and Batman video game based genres.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    All things considered, Pinnacle Station is a disappointing addition to Mass Effect.
    • 85 Metascore

    New gameplay and presentation tweaks and the all-new online franchise are welcomed with open arms, but disappointments from The Extra Point, online co-op, and the commentary don't make it the greatest Madden game ever.

    • 85 Critic Score
    Bound in Blood greatly exults over its predecessor and proves to be one of the finer single player experiences you’ll get to play through for your Xbox 360.

    If you’re a fan of fighting games then BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger will make a welcome addition to your collection. If you’re remotely curious about fighting games and have been turned off by the steep learning curve of other games in the genre, give BlazBlue a chance.

    The first season of Sam and Max is one of the funniest and most enjoyable experiences I've had playing games, and having it available on Xbox Live Arcade for just twenty bucks is an incredible steal.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 57 Critic Score
    Between its labyrinth maps, dreary gunplay and enemy design, along with repetition that will break some of the most patient players, this is a game that's not worth your time.

    What is very clear to anyone who plays Red Faction Guerilla is that there is no other game quite like it.

    Again, Fuel is just a poor game no matter how you try and look at it. There's a fair amount of content here, but it's not good.
    • 83 Metascore

    UFC 2009 Undisputed has the flash, the look, the gameplay, but doesn't have the style and easy pick-up-and-play feel to make it that undisputed, unbeatable champion.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    X-Men Origins: Wolverine is a decent movie-tie-in game, but that doesn’t make it the greatest game of all time. It’s certainly miles better than the other crap you can find on the market, but at the same time there are plenty of other better games you could also be playing.

    Plain and simple, The Godfather 2 is an action packed thrill ride. Even though it may not deliver on the strategy element’s pursuits, the action is constantly intense, and keeps you excited to play more up to until the credits begin to roll.

    At the end of the day, Guitar Hero: Metallica is essentially what it sounds like: a Guitar Hero game for Metallica fans; by the fans, for the fans in the purest sense.
    • 89 Metascore

    While I was hoping the 360 version would add something entirely new (not counting the Peg Party), I highly recommend Peggle. It’s a casual game that appeals to everyone. For only 800 Microsoft points ($10 USD), you will definitely get your money’s worth.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 93 Critic Score
    Despite the questionable change to the graphical presentation, The Lost and Damned is a very well developed piece of content for one of the best games of last year.
    • 81 Metascore

    However, if you’re not a fan of video game storylines or don’t really care about video games as a medium, Prince of Persia is still a great game. There’s plenty of fun to be had with the platforming.

    Despite the dull design and terrible frame rate, I found myself playing KFK for five hours straight. The entire game I personally had a feeling offelt “This isn’t very fun, I wish I wasn’t playing this” but continued to do so anyway.

    Mirror’s Edge has an excellent but short singleplayer campaign with a few added whistles.

    Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3 includes many elements that can make real time strategy games successful on consoles.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    If you enjoyed Modern Warfare or FPSs in general, this is one of the higher quality shooters you'll find this year. If you're not a fan of grit and prefer your war games more sanitized, such as in Halo, then you'd do well to steer clear.

    Gears of War 2 manages to be everything that the sequel to an intense, violent shooter should be.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Vigilante 8: Arcade sets out to be an exercise in updated, nostalgic goodness, but ends up falling short.
