Grand Theft Auto IV
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 Review7 of 15 users found the following review helpful
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 Review5 of 5 users found the following review helpful
Lost: Via Domus
Condemned 2: Bloodshot
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 Review2 of 5 users found the following review helpful

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 Review19 of 23 users found the following review helpful

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 Review4 of 7 users found the following review helpful
Ninja Gaiden III: The Ancient Ship of Doom
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 Review1 of 3 users found the following review helpful
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 Review4 of 8 users found the following review helpful
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 Review4 of 5 users found the following review helpful
Super Mario Galaxy
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 Review6 of 8 users found the following review helpful
