    Pocket Monsters Pearl

    Pokemon is back, along with the formula, which is its greatest strength and yet its greatest setback.

    Arguably, there hasn't been as rampant a gaming craze since the early Pokemon days. Selling millions upon millions of copies every release, the Pokemon franchise continues to endure, though its lack of progression makes... Read Full Review

    The equivalent of a roller-coaster: sure, you say "What a rush" but the ride only lasts and remains fresh for

    At its core, Motorstorm is a great concept for a game and its been executed, to a degree, very well. However, racing games nowadays are about what you can do rather than how you do it. The "how it's done" in ... Read Full Review

    God of War II

    A fantastic evolution in the franchise, God of War 2 lives up to the standard established by its predecessor.

    Definitely not your Mom's game and definitely the type of game that gives videogames a bad reputation, God of War 2 is a wickedly intense epic that is defined more by its imagination, cinematography, and content than by ... Read Full Review

    flOw

    Proving life can be simple, flOw also proves that life can be very awfully boring.

    flOw is mainly an experiment into the nature of games, attempting to discover and absolutely define what a game can be. Though definitely original, that doesn't mean it's exactly enjoyable. GRAPHICS This is a very... Read Full Review

    Amid all the next-generation hype, Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter stands as the premiere game for Xbox 360.

    If you're an American and want revenge on the Mexican's pouring into your country and disrupting its economic status, then here's your opportunity. If not, then don't digress; Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter is quite p... Read Full Review

    FFVII: AC stands as the greatest videogame film ever made and could possibly do to movies what FFVII did for games.

    Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children

    FFVII: AC stands as the greatest videogame film ever made and could possibly do to movies what FFVII did for games.

    When you venture off into a project as daunting as FFVII:AC, you have to have a lot of fears. Final Fantasy VII, the masterpiece, still holds strong in the heated arguments of being the best game ever made (and in my op... Read Full Review

    Legaia Densetsu (PlayStation the Best)

    Legend of Legaia offers a great battle system with an engaging, interesting adventure that coaxes you further along.

    Legend of Legaia is, in my humble opinion, one of the best RPGs ever made. As such, it is most clearly one of the most underappreciated. A compelling story that is not overly complex and an engaging battle system and s... Read Full Review

    Perfect Dark Zero

    PDZ needs a little more umph

    The graphics are impressive if you haven't seen any next-gen graphics before from PS3 or 360, but only the environments. Character models are hideous while voice acting is abysmal. The gameplay is very solid, deep, and... Read Full Review

    The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

    Twilight Princess sticks to the tried-and-tested Zelda formula, which ultimately proves to be it's greatest flaw.

    In the entire history of videogames, there aren't many franchises that manage to excel The Legend of Zelda in sheer popularity or quality. In Twilight Princess, Nintendo casts you back into the role of the legendary her... Read Full Review

    The most thorough review of this game is inside. If you want to know the ins and outs of KH2, I've got the scoop.

    Wii Sports

    A simple, educational look into what motion-sensing can do for gaming. And, oh, it's fun too.

    Not many of us expected a whole lot from Wii Sports, but if it's a freebie, why complain, right? So, we didn't and so we won't. But as far as games go, Wii Sports is more or less just a selection of minigames taken fro... Read Full Review

    Resistance: Fall of Man

    A creative, astounding gameplay experience that suffers only from the lack of luster.

    Understanding that Xbox 360 had a year's ground on them, Sony knew coming in that they couldn't afford to be passed over or ignored during launch. Well, some games didn't quite cut it, but Resistance isn't one of them. ... Read Full Review

    The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

    The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is the best WRPG the world has ever seen. Sadly, it doesn't have that "legendary" aspect

    Oblivion is just like Morrowind, only with updated graphics that still don't stand out in the crowd. Gameplay is the same as ever with vast amounts of customization and a much easier transportation system than Morrowind... Read Full Review

    Gears of War

    Not quite the best thing since sliced bread, but overall an incredibly well-handled, well-built action game.

    Gears of War is overhyped. There, I said it. No game that has ever had any sort of track record has ever received the kind of hype that this game did. But nonetheless, the game does satisfy that which it boasted it co... Read Full Review

    A very different kind of fantasy, a very different kind of masterpiece

    Mirror's Edge

    Though imperfect, Mirror's Edge brings a rush through one of the most unique and ambitious approaches towards gameplay.

    Since I've gotten back, I've tried my hand at a few different titles and none has impressed me out of the gates as much as Mirror's Edge has. With such unique art style and gameplay mechanics, Mirror's Edge toes the lin... Read Full Review

    Call of Duty 2 translates seamlessly to the 360, though its multiplayer and online suffer due to the rushed launch.

    The general consensus is that PCs are greater than Consoles when it comes to games. The Xbox 360 and Call of Duty 2 beg to differ. Everything is just as smooth on the 360 and the controls are just as seamless and immer... Read Full Review

    Calling All Cars is an uproarious, pandemonius rush with solid gameplay, but is undermined by its lack of staying power.
