    A captivating RPG experience that easily stands shoulder to shoulder with classics like Fallout and Planescape: Torment

    Dragon Age: Origins (Collector's Edition)

    A captivating RPG experience that easily stands shoulder to shoulder with classics like Fallout and Planescape: Torment

    Dragon Age: Origins is, in a word, awesome. Think of everything you love (and some things you might hate) about role-playing games, and that's DA:O. I'll get the bad things out of the way first simply because there a... Read Full Review

    Diablo is back, and it's as addictive as ever!

    Diablo III

    Diablo is back, and it's as addictive as ever!

    As a long-time fan and active player of the Diablo franchise going all the way back to the release of the original in 1996, it goes without saying that I was eagerly looking forward to this third iteration of the series,... Read Full Review

    It's a shame that so many people are going to overlook this underrated gem

    Steel Diver

    It's a shame that so many people are going to overlook this underrated gem

    I've read the complaints about Steel Diver: "It's too slow and tedious!" "There's not enough content!" "It's too hard!" "It's too easy!" "The controls are too fiddly!" Well, none of that is true. While the pacing... Read Full Review

    Don't let the minor flaws keep you from purchasing this deep and sophisticated puzzler

    Puzzle Quest: Galactrix

    Don't let the minor flaws keep you from purchasing this deep and sophisticated puzzler

    I think Galactrix is a victim of its predecessor's success. Challenge of the Warlords was an unexpectedly innovative and highly addictive game that had its flaws but was such a fresh idea that most people were willing t... Read Full Review

    A back-to-the-basics Mario platformer that's every bit as fun as the NES original

    New Super Mario Bros.

    A back-to-the-basics Mario platformer that's every bit as fun as the NES original

    The original Super Mario Bros. has always been my favorite Mario platformer. There's just something about its simplicity that's always fun and never gets old. Many of the later Mario platform games, while still great f... Read Full Review

    Batman: Arkham Asylum is a truly remarkable experience and one that shouldn't be missed.  So what about the PC controls?

    Batman: Arkham Asylum

    Batman: Arkham Asylum is a truly remarkable experience and one that shouldn't be missed. So what about the PC controls?

    I don't know what I can say about this game that hasn't been said (probably better) by somebody else. Basically, believe the hype: it really is one of the best games ever made and shouldn't be missed by anybody who call... Read Full Review

    A well-made football game that's somewhat light on features but delivers where it counts

    Madden NFL Football

    A well-made football game that's somewhat light on features but delivers where it counts

    First things first, Madden NFL Football for the 3DS doesn't have franchise mode or any kind of multiplayer, so if those things matter to you then subtract 3 points from my score and know that this isn't the football sim ... Read Full Review

    Metroid: Other M

    Samus returns to her platforming roots in this stylish and compelling game

    Metroid: Other M is a well designed and enjoyable game that shouldn't be missed by Metroid fans. Platforming action is the heart of every Metroid game, and Other M doesn't disappoint. Samus' roster of moves will be imm... Read Full Review

    100 Classic Book Collection

    100 classic books in the palm of your hand with an intuitive and easy to use interface? Yeah, I'll give this a 10.

    Basically, this cartridge turns your DS into an e-book reader with 100 classic works of fiction at your fingertips. The interface is slick, intuitive, and simple to use - for example, just swipe across the screen to tur... Read Full Review

    Something for those who are tired of pretending to make music in Guitar Hero

    KORG DS-10 Synthesizer

    Something for those who are tired of pretending to make music in Guitar Hero

    This isn't a game but a full-featured creative outlet. The idea of a fully functioning Korg analog synthesizer in the palm of your hand is just nuts, but it works for the most part, and you can actually create some real... Read Full Review

    "It's not just a good game for the Wii but a good game, period."

    The Conduit

    "It's not just a good game for the Wii but a good game, period."

    This could very well be the most underrated game on the Wii. No, it doesn't revolutionize the FPS genre, but then it doesn't try to. What it does do is give us a well-designed and entertaining game that gets all the fu... Read Full Review

    A Japanese RPG for people who hate Japanese RPGs

    Chrono Trigger

    A Japanese RPG for people who hate Japanese RPGs

    Chrono Trigger takes the Japanese RPG formula and turns it on its head. Gone are the tedious turn-based battles, the random encounters, the strictly linear storyline, the mind-numbing grind, the crushingly difficult bos... Read Full Review

    This homage to the classics is a classic in its own right.

    Game Center CX: Arino no Chousenjou

    This homage to the classics is a classic in its own right.

    Ah, the good ol' days, when simple sprites and "bleep" and "bloop" sound effects were as good as it got, when nobody complained about spending top-dollar on a platforming game that could be beaten in 30-minutes, when add... Read Full Review

    Same great gameplay as its console counterparts minus the statistical depth

    MLB Power Pros 2008

    Same great gameplay as its console counterparts minus the statistical depth

    If you're looking for a great baseball game to play on the go then you can stop looking because you've found it. MLB Power Pros 2008 may look cutesy, but underneath the hood is a respectable baseball simulation that you'... Read Full Review

    Awesome game... until it's time to putt

    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 All-Play

    Awesome game... until it's time to putt

    Tiger Woods 09 on the Wii is probably one of the best virtual golfing experiences that can be had, at least from the tee to the green. Driving feels natural, intuitive, and predictable. Short chip-shots are a cinch to ... Read Full Review
