Vanquish
23/10/10 00:10:58 - Vanquish
"Vanquish shows how its possible to deliver a strong, albeit surprising, performance."
7.0/10
Fallout: New Vegas
19/10/10 07:37:34 - Fallout: New Vegas
"By bringing little else new to the experience and with it being as buggy as ever, New Vegas could have been adequate as a smaller-sized expansion disc."
8.5/10
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
15/10/10 08:41:19 - Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
"Sure, it cribs, borrows, and steals from other games, but in the end, it still moves a classic in a great, new direction."
7.0/10
Medal of Honor
14/10/10 11:32:04 - Medal of Honor
"Ultimately, as an expansion franchise, Medal of Honor's debut in the Modern Warfare League isn't a championship run."
6.5/10
Dead Rising 2
11/10/10 09:39:31 - Dead Rising 2
"Killing zombies is one thing; killing our downtime with a poorly designed, nonsensical and patchwork game is another. "
8.5/10
Enslaved: Odyssey to the West
10/10/10 23:43:39 - Enslaved: Odyssey to the West (X360)
"Enslaved: Odyssey to the West deserves attention and rewards the player"
5.5/10
Hydrophobia
01/10/10 10:01:34 - Hydrophobia
"Dark Energy has undoubtedly created some impressive technology and fiction, but neither are expressly enjoyable in what's playable. "
8.5/10
Halo: Reach
13/09/10 22:26:41 - Halo: Reach
"As a Halo game it rivals the nostalgia Combat Evolved instilled in us nearly a decade ago"
7.5/10
Mafia 2
03/09/10 11:11:55 - Mafia II (X360)
"If you're in the mood for a playable story...it's easy to sink a few hours into the follow-up to one of 2002's greatest hits."
9.5/10
StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty
07/08/10 10:59:24 - StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty
"When it comes to delivering a polished, artistically rendered, and enjoyable game, Blizzard is without peer."
8/10
DeathSpank
20/07/10 05:01:09 - DeathSpank
"Like those summer cineplex comedies that get you out of the sweltering heat for a few laugh-filled hours, DeathSpank delivers the goods."
8.5/10
Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge
13/07/10 00:13:10 - Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge (X360)
"Even after nearly 20 years, it's still funnier, more clever, and well-written than the vast majority of “blockbusters” lining the digital shelves."
8.0/10
ArmA 2: Operation Arrowhead
12/07/10 23:54:30 - ArmA II: Operation Arrowhead
"If you've got a powerful computer...and a lot of time and patience, then Bohemia's ArmA II: Operation Arrowhead will scratch your itch"
8.0/10
RISK: Factions
09/07/10 00:57:44 - Risk: Factions
"At around ten dollars, Risk: Factions provides a lot of gameplay and another motivation for ditching the tabletop for the console"
4.5/10
Naughty Bear
09/07/10 00:20:55 - Naughty Bear (X360)
"As it stands, Naughty Bear is overpriced and undercooked."
6.5/10
Crackdown 2
06/07/10 00:18:59 - Crackdown 2
"In short, Crackdown 2 feels more like Crackdown Too."
7.0/10
Singularity
05/07/10 11:39:04 - Singularity (X360)
"If you can overlook its utter lack of new car smell, Singularity is a pretty good way to pass some time."
8.0/10
Puzzle Quest 2
02/07/10 09:51:31 - Puzzle Quest 2
"Simple, addictive and fun, with just enough complexity to keep things interesting, Puzzle Quest 2 is a “casual game” winner."
8.0/10
Transformers: War for Cybertron
02/07/10 09:30:39 - Transformers: War for Cybertron (X360)
"Tranformers: War for Cybertron is, somewhat surprisingly, probably the best reboot of the classic cartoon."
7.5/10
Green Day: Rock Band
18/06/10 09:22:33 - Rock Band: Green Day
"Compared to the visual and musical feast of The Beatles: Rock Band...this feel like a generous helping of DLC rather than a stand-alone game."
4.0/10
Alpha Protocol
05/06/10 08:31:09 - Alpha Protocol
" Clearly, the Great Ones of the videogame espionage genre can't sit back on Social Security just yet."
9.5/10

03/06/10 23:19:53 - Red Dead Redemption (X360)
"Red Dead Redemption is a masterpiece."
7.0/10
Lost Planet 2
20/05/10 22:28:26 - Lost Planet 2 (360)
"It's a full-price game with a seriously flawed single player experience...with a dollop of shiny graphics on top."
7.0/10
Alan Wake
13/05/10 04:50:08 - Alan Wake
"It's hard to see Alan Wake as more than an accomplished rental."
9.0/10
Heavy Rain
01/03/10 09:57:51 - Heavy Rain
"More than anything, Heavy Rain is further proof that games have truly come of age and are a viable platform for telling stories..."
8.5/10
BioShock 2
14/02/10 23:03:23 - BioShock 2 (X360)
"What BioShock 2 lacks—not surprisingly—is that feeling of richness, imagination, originality and wonder that so infused BioShock."

Dragon Age: Origins - Return to Ostagar
09/02/10 10:45:19 - Dragon Age: Origins - Return to Ostagar DLC (PC)

8.0/10
MAG
04/02/10 00:04:48 - MAG (PS3)
"Ultimately, it may be a strong package from a technical standpoint, but one that isn't as well rounded or robust as it should be."
9.5/10
Mass Effect 2
02/02/10 00:17:18 - Mass Effect 2 (X360)
"Mass Effect 2 still sets a new, almost impossibly high benchmark for future games."
7.0/10
Battle Blasters
21/01/10 01:08:24 - Battle Blasters (iPhone)
"The best thing about Battle Blasters is that it’s a perfect game to pick up and play for a couple of rounds, with some real depth and strategy"
6.5/10
Dark Void
19/01/10 10:31:59 - Dark Void (X360)
"While we appreciate the work Airtight has done there's little else to entice players back for multiple playthroughs."
7.0/10
Matt Hazard: Blood Bath and Beyond
19/01/10 08:47:15 - Matt Hazard: Blood Bath and Beyond (XBLA)
"As a $15 download it's certainly a better value than its full-price predecessor."

16/01/10 11:23:24 - Army of Two: The 40th Day (X360)

5.5/10
Greed - Black Border
16/01/10 10:57:05 - Greed: Black Border (PC)
"Other than some occasional pretty sights and an overarching feeling of comforting familiarity, there isn’t much of a reason to recommend Greed."
7.0/10
Divinity 2: Ego Draconis
15/01/10 00:13:21 - Divinity 2: Ego Draconis (PC)
"If you can push on through to becoming a dragon, it's a definite game saver."

Bayonetta
08/01/10 00:40:30 - Bayonetta (X360)
"Bayonetta might not be the kind of girl you bring home to meet your mother, but she's a lot of fun to hang out with, flaws and all."
8.5/10
Darksiders: Wrath of War
02/01/10 12:25:38 - Darksiders (PS3)

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
19/11/09 01:12:08 - Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (X360)
"Modern Warfare 2 is by no means a substandard entry for the series—it's just not as good as the first game for the most part."
8.5/10
LittleBigPlanet
18/11/09 02:43:30 - LittleBigPlanet PSP

7.5/10
Need for Speed NITRO
10/11/09 01:06:18 - Need for Speed NITRO (Wii)
"For the casual crowd, Need for Speed NITRO is undoubtedly a fun alternative with just enough production value to keep it from seeming overly stale."
8.0/10
DJ Hero
06/11/09 12:50:12 - DJ Hero (X360)
"DJ Hero might not evoke such social activity, but the game is a fun distraction from plastic guitars and drums."

Grand Theft Auto IV: The Ballad of Gay Tony
04/11/09 10:29:24 - Grand Theft Auto IV: The Ballad of Gay Tony (X360)

7.5/10
Borderlands
29/10/09 23:24:05 - Borderlands (X360)
"Once you add a few other players to the mix, you get a game that does well in the action-RPG scene, despite its nagging issues."

Brutal Legend
13/10/09 14:36:43 - Brutal Legend (X360)
"While the idea is there, and it's great to see a director and studio trying new things, the execution unfortunately falls a bit flat."
8.0/10
Dead Space Extraction
09/10/09 08:19:06 - Dead Space: Extraction
" Tight controls and an overall engrossing story told through equally as compelling direction and action make Dead Space: Extraction a benchmark for Wii shooters"
