    Half-Life 2: Episode Two

    Non-stop action & an extraordinary narrative make Episode 2 a memorable experience.

    Let's just go ahead and get this out of the way. Half-Life 2: Episode 2 does more to improve the quality of the videogame narrative than anything that has been made in the last 10 years. And developers should take note t... Read Full Review

    ICO

    An innovative adventure game that raises the bar for thoughtful gameplay design.

    The game that would be Shadow of the Colossus (SotC). That's really the best way to sum up ICO in one sentence. Its immersive and artistic setting, its deep yet ambiguous story, and its innovation in game design, all hel... Read Full Review

    A superb platformer that infuses the genre's gameplay with some impressive shooter elements.

    Ratchet & Clank (Platinum)

    A superb platformer that infuses the genre's gameplay with some impressive shooter elements.

    Quite simply, Ratchet & Clank is a platformer gone mad. Sure, there are items to be collected and jumping to be done, but if you had to sum the game up into a single word, it would have to be: Guns. Where other games... Read Full Review

    R&C: Going Commando is a perfect blend of solid platformer & shooter elements, that fans of both genres will enjoy.

    Ratchet & Clank 2: Locked and Loaded

    R&C: Going Commando is a perfect blend of solid platformer & shooter elements, that fans of both genres will enjoy.

    Roughly one year after their first adventure, Ratchet & Clank are back in Going Commando. Following their triumph over Chairman Drek and the infamously inept Captain Quark, Going Commando begins with the heroic duo havin... Read Full Review

    Faster and more intense than Half-Life 2.

    Half-Life 2: Episode One

    Faster and more intense than Half-Life 2.

    Playing Half-Life 2 was like taking part in your favorite science-fiction movie. The slow and deliberate pacing of the game consisted of intense gun battles against the Combine, punctuated by frantic struggles to survive... Read Full Review

    SiN Episodes: Emergence

    After the patch, SE: Emergence is a game that any FPS fan would enjoy.

    SiN Episodes: Emergence is the first of, as the title suggests, a series of short episodic games from Ritual Entertainment. Having never played the original SiN, I was able to come into Emergence with a clean slate. That... Read Full Review

    Jak and Daxter: the Precursor Legacy

    A solid platforming title with exceptional character and charm.

    Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy is a game that platforming fans will immediately recognize. At the time of Jak and Daxter's release, the genre had not deviated much from the successful formula created by Super Mario... Read Full Review

    A fast-paced but short Metroid adventure that should be played by all fans of the series.

    Metroid Fusion

    A fast-paced but short Metroid adventure that should be played by all fans of the series.

    Metroid Fusion marks the triumphant return of everyone's favorite bounty-hunter Samus Aran to the handheld platform. Fusion is much more of a story-driven game than Samus' past 2D adventures. Taking place sometime after ... Read Full Review

    A Spy in H.A.R.M.'s Way is a truly funny action title that should not be missed.

    No One Lives Forever 2: A Spy in H.A.R.M.'s Way

    A Spy in H.A.R.M.'s Way is a truly funny action title that should not be missed.

    It's a rare game that will make you laugh out loud while playing it, and No One Lives Forever 2: A Spy in H.A.R.M.'s Way is such a game. The sequel to 2000's excellent The Operative: No One Lives Forever, NOLF2 is an imp... Read Full Review

    A classic Zelda adventure that is a bit easier than past offerings.

    The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap

    A classic Zelda adventure that is a bit easier than past offerings.

    If you've saved her once, you've saved her a thousand times. And yet, if you're anything like me, you're always willing to go for a thousand and one. The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap has that same addictive gameplay t... Read Full Review

    A fun action-adventure title that you will enjoy playing when you have a little time to kill.

    Might and Magic

    A fun action-adventure title that you will enjoy playing when you have a little time to kill.

    Might & Magic is a compelling action-adventure title that shows that mobile games are capable of being more than Puzzlers or Card-games. The game tells the story of a young man named Ewan who is out to rescue his abducte... Read Full Review

    A fun throwback to classic 2D gameplay that suffers due to its medium.

    Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow

    A fun throwback to classic 2D gameplay that suffers due to its medium.

    It is difficult to review a game for the mobile phone platform, and not be overly influenced by the faults of the platform itself. The term "platform" is really a misnomer in that there are so many different sets of hard... Read Full Review

    An under-rated action game that falls just short of greatness.

    Oni is a third-person action title from Bungie Software in which you take the role of Konoko, a member of an elite police task force. Konoko knows very little about her past ,and throughout the game you will learn who sh... Read Full Review
