    Dragon Age: Origins (Collector's Edition)

  • Review Score:5
    Thoroughly average, even for fans, but for the right price it's worth playing.

    Lost: Via Domus

    Thoroughly average, even for fans, but for the right price it's worth playing.

    Are you a LOST fan? Great, keep reading! Wait, did someone back there say no? YOU did? Well, you can stop reading right now and save yourself the time. LOST: Via Domus is not for you. Go play something else! Al... Read Full Review

    Assassin's Creed

  • Review Score:9
    That tense moment of silence when your feet lift of the ground, the uncertainty of your next step IS Assassin's Creed.

    Assassin's Creed

    That tense moment of silence when your feet lift of the ground, the uncertainty of your next step IS Assassin's Creed.

    What follows is a short, exactly 100 word review, boiling the game down to what I view to be its essence. The exhilaration of running, that tense moment of silence when your feet lift of the ground, the uncertainty of y... Read Full Review

    The Beatles: Rock Band

  • Review Score:9.5
    If you like the Beatles, this game is definitely for you.  If you like music games, this game is for you, too.

    The Beatles: Rock Band

    If you like the Beatles, this game is definitely for you. If you like music games, this game is for you, too.

    Survey any ten people with the question "What is the greatest band of all time?" and at least five of them will answer "the Beatles."* If you have any friends that can't sing the chorus to at least one Beatles song, cha... Read Full Review

    Charming and immersive, Professor Layton is a great game for anyone who enjoys puzzles and logic.

    Professor Layton and the Curious Village

    Charming and immersive, Professor Layton is a great game for anyone who enjoys puzzles and logic.

    The bells above the shop door tinkled with my entry. Trying not to look out of place, I clutched the paper I held in my hands and huddled in the entryway. "If you wish to become a true puzzle master," it read, "solve t... Read Full Review

    Professor Layton and the Curious Village

  • Review Score:7
    The concept is still fun, but the game's rough transition to the 360 will leave fans feeling bittersweet.

    Beautiful Katamari

    The concept is still fun, but the game's rough transition to the 360 will leave fans feeling bittersweet.

    Even the best, most original ideas eventually grow tired. This is the case with Beautiful Katamari, a good game that is unfortunately suffering a serious case of sequel fatigue. The original game in the series, Katamar... Read Full Review

    Super Mario Galaxy shines with the same quality that originally led gamers to love him so much.

    Super Mario Galaxy

    Super Mario Galaxy shines with the same quality that originally led gamers to love him so much.

    The first game console I ever owned was the Super Nintendo. It was a gift I received for Christmas, one that filled me with excitement reminiscent of the meme-tastic N64 kid. The pack in game, Super Mario World, was my... Read Full Review

    Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

  • Review Score:9
    It's the most appropriate ending possible, but it's not perfect.

    Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (Platinum)

    It's the most appropriate ending possible, but it's not perfect.

    Some things in life manage to amount to something greater than the sum of all the parts composing it. I believe this old adage holds true of the Metal Gear franchise, but it is especially applicable to Metal Gear Solid ... Read Full Review

    It will take the player a heavy dose of patience, but after ten years the game is still worth playing. <br />

    It will take the player a heavy dose of patience, but after ten years the game is still worth playing. <br />

    It's 1998. Half-Life is released for the PC to much fanfare and critical acclaim. Lauded for its innovations in storytelling, excellence in graphics and sound design, integration of puzzle and shooter gameplay, and ten... Read Full Review
