    Grand Theft Auto IV

    In the truly superb Grand Theft Auto IV, Rockstar's series grows up a bit.

    By this point, so massive has been the level of exposure to the Grand Theft Auto games in our culture, you're probably either a fan of Rockstar's franchise of crime games, or you're decidedly not. If you don't like the g... Read Full Review

    The gameplay is tedious, the characters are completely underdeveloped, and the relationships are non-existent.

    Lost: Via Domus

    The gameplay is tedious, the characters are completely underdeveloped, and the relationships are non-existent.

    Lost: Via Domus is a game in which...well, for starters, it's barely even a game at all. It's more like a checklist of inputs that you enter using a gamepad. There is, at least for me, no enjoyment to be gleaned from the... Read Full Review

    Condemned 2: Bloodshot

    The combat has seen some nice improvements, but the story and overall scariness of the game fall short.

    Condemned 2

    The combat has seen some nice improvements, but the story and overall scariness of the game fall short.

    Condemned was one of the most impressive early games for the Xbox 360. The first-person combat really packed a wallop, and the game was also an impressive piece of art design, with extremely creepy, gritty environments a... Read Full Review

    The main problem is that, in combining the platforming and role-playing elements, both aspects have been compromised.

    Super Paper Mario

    The main problem is that, in combining the platforming and role-playing elements, both aspects have been compromised.

    The Paper Mario series has distinguished itself as a wonderfully charming, well-written and fun series of RPGs with minor platforming elements and a unique visual style. The latest game, Super Paper Mario for the Wii, f... Read Full Review

    If the thought of whacking homicidal hobos with two-by-fours appeals to you in the least, you must play this game.

    Condemned: Criminal Origins

    If the thought of whacking homicidal hobos with two-by-fours appeals to you in the least, you must play this game.

    In this era when games are largely becoming bigger, longer, and more complicated, there's something refreshing about a title that focuses on doing one thing, doing it extremely well, and ending before it overstays its we... Read Full Review

    Ninja Gaiden III: The Ancient Ship of Doom

  • Review Score:6
    The five-continue limit makes this otherwise decent game straight up ridiculous.

    Ninja Ryuukenden III: Yomi no Hakobune

    The five-continue limit makes this otherwise decent game straight up ridiculous.

    Released in 1991, Ninja Gaiden III: The Ancient Ship of Doom was very nearly a perfectly adequate, if unspectacular, conclusion to the trilogy of Ryu Hayabusa's NES adventures. Unfortunately, one tremendous misstep made ... Read Full Review

    StarTropics is solid but can also be frustrating, making it best suited for adventure fans who like a stiff challenge.

    StarTropics

    StarTropics is solid but can also be frustrating, making it best suited for adventure fans who like a stiff challenge.

    Released in 1990 for the NES, StarTropics built on the gameplay formula laid out by the original Legend of Zelda, and also tweaked it in some pretty significant ways. The resulting game is solid but also potentially quit... Read Full Review

    Super Mario Galaxy lives up to our outrageously high expectations, our hopes and dreams of what a Mario game should be.

    Super Mario Galaxy

    Super Mario Galaxy lives up to our outrageously high expectations, our hopes and dreams of what a Mario game should be.

    Some people have very high expectations for Mario games. For people who grew up with games like Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World, truly some of the best, most purely enjoyable games ever created, the series has ... Read Full Review

    The Orange Box

    The new content here is exceptional enough to make The Orange Box one of the best releases of the year.

    Just how much you get out of Valve's five-game compilation The Orange Box will depend a lot on whether or not you've previously played 2004's Half-Life 2 and it's 2006 follow-up, Half-Life 2: Episode One. The Orange Box ... Read Full Review
