    Heavy Rain

    A game that pushes the boundaries between movies and games so far, it'll make you wonder why more games aren't like it.

    Heavy Rain is a quick time event-driven game where your choices ultimately determine the outcome. At first glance, a game loaded with quick time events doesn't sound like a whole lot of fun, but to be honest, I may have ... Read Full Review

    Guitar Hero 5

    The music game genre is starting to wear thin, but GH5 manages to tweak the formula just enough to maintain interest.

    Guitar Hero 5 is probably the most party-friendly rhythm game on the market. There seems to be a whole lot less cycling through menus and more actually playing. The new "Party Play" mode allows people to drop in and out ... Read Full Review

    Need for Speed Undercover

    Better than ProStreet... that's not really saying much, is it?

    When you take a step back and look at Undercover from a distance, you can see a game that, if it had gotten more polish time and a rework in physics, graphics, and features, could have been as great as Most Wanted. Bu... Read Full Review

    Call of Duty: World at War is just as addictive as its predecessor, in spite of several shortcomings.
