    Dragon Age II

    Dragon Age 2 is a worthy follow-up that's marred by too much streamlining.

    BioWare's Dragon Age Origins was a hit with critics and fans when it was released in 2009 so a sequel was only inevitable. When the announcement came shortly after the release of the expansion, Awakenings, many wondered ... Read Full Review

    Assassin's Creed II

    Assassin's Creed 2 PC improves upon the original in almost every way.

    Assassin's Creed 2 finally arrived on the PC in March, 2010 after being released for Xbox 360 and PS3 in November, 2009. The release wasn't smooth as the PC version was saddled with one of the harshest DRM schemes and pr... Read Full Review

    Mafia II

    Mafia II is more of an interactive experience than an actual game.

    The Mafia have been explored extensively in films and television such as "The Godfather" and "The Sopranos." The original Mafia was released on PC (later ported to Xbox and PlayStation 2) in 2002 to critical acclaim. Aft... Read Full Review

    TRON: Evolution

    Tron Evolution is a solid, if ultimately uninspired and forgettable third-person action game.

    With Tron Legacy, the sequel to the cult classic Tron from 1986 arriving in theaters in December, Disney has been doing a massive marketing push which includes comics, action figures and of course, video games. Tron Evol... Read Full Review

    It may lack polish, but Alpha Protocol is one of the most underrated games of 2010.

    Alpha Protocol

    It may lack polish, but Alpha Protocol is one of the most underrated games of 2010.

    Besides Splinter Cell, not many games have really dealt with the spy genre. Yes, there's James Bond games but those are licensed, not original. Now Obsidian Entertainment brings us Alpha Protocol for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3... Read Full Review

    You'll still need a supercomputer but Grand Theft Auto IV Episodes from Liberty City is an excellent expansion pack.

    When Grand Theft Auto IV was released on consoles, it received unanimous praise from critics and gamers. The story was a little different on PC as the game was horribly optimized. A number of patches have been released t... Read Full Review

    A stagnant franchise and technical issues mar Call of Duty Black Ops on the PC but nevertheless, it's still fun.

    Death, taxes, Call of Duty. These are the things we deal with year in, year out. Treyarch once again takes the reins from the beleaguered Infinity Ward with the seventh installment, Call of Duty Black Ops, set during the... Read Full Review

    Simply another masterpiece compared to the original, despite the occasional bug that might frustrate some players.

    KOTOR was an absolutely great game, giving players THE BEST Star Wars experience to date. KOTOR 2 had a hard act to follow and while it was developed by Obsidian, the game is still considered to be one of the best Star W... Read Full Review

    Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion represents the hallmark of RPG's and in the history of video games in general.

    S.T.A.L.K.E.R. delivers a great FPS/RPG experience that offers great replayability and an interesting premise.

    When I first saw the box art, I was generally unimpressed. Seemed kind of generic but as I read more of the previews, the game grew on me and so I snatched it up when it came out. This game succeeds where many FPS' fail:... Read Full Review

    Elder Scrolls IV Knights Of The Nine gives you another reason to revisit the world of Oblivion at a budget price.

    I have noticed that Bethesda has kept Oblivion fresh and exciting with their downloadable plug-ins with new single quests. Knights Of The Nine is the most ambitious and delivers a full quest line and story. The major gri... Read Full Review

    Despite its age, Elder Scrolls III Morrowind is still one of the best RPG's to ever grace the PC.

    I actually got Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion first before getting this. Oblivion seemed to represent the very best in RPG's and so I decided to check out the previous installment, Morrowind. Morrowind is largely the same as ... Read Full Review
