    Final Fantasy IX

    While Final Fantasy IX is not the paramount of the series, it still holds up as a highly enjoyable RPG even today.

    When we think of the Final Fantasy series, we think of how awesome Cloud was, how prissy Tidus was, and how obnoxious Squall and Rinoa were together. Final Fantasy IX never seems to fall into the immediate memory of the ... Read Full Review

    KHII is a front-runner for game of the year, with amazing storyline, graphics, sound, and flat-out fun value.

    There was something for everyone in Kingdom Hearts 1. An engaging plot, Disney, Final Fantasy cameos, gorgeous landscapes, a catchy soundtrack, a working battle system, and lovable characters. Yet, there were problems. B... Read Full Review

    The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

    While not perfect, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is an incredibly fun game and a must-have for the Wii.

    Three or so years ago, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker was released. Personally, I thought this game was great. It was an unexpected yet welcome change from the typical Ocarina of Time/Majora's Mask Zelda gameplay. Y... Read Full Review

    Do yourself a favor: Quit playing about halfway through the third disk. Otherwise, this is a very fufilling game.

    Final Fantasy VIII is, at times, the best Final Fantasy in the series. It has everything possible that you could want in your RPG. An ever-changing battle system, lucious environments, colorful characters, a great storyl... Read Full Review

    Sonic's first forray on the wii is clumsy, plotless, and most of the time just frustrating and unenjoyable.

    Sonic has always been one of my favorite video game characters. I always sport a sonic-themed wristband on my right wrist. So when I finally saw Sonic and the Secret Rings in the bargain bin at my local Gamestop, I of co... Read Full Review

    This entry in the Sonic series will make you remember why that weird talking blue hedgehog is so beloved.

    This game is so much different than its previous handheld predecessors, it would be unbelivably stupid to overlook it.

    What a pleasant little surprise. I thought I would be in for a desperate attempt to use the Zelda license, but instead I find a game that takes the GBA hardware to the next level. With graphics only exceeded by a small h... Read Full Review

    This year's version of NBA Live feels really forced to be "cool" and is not that fun.
