Uncharted: Drake's Fortune is more that good looks, however, the story is engaging, the writing is clever and witty, at times hilarious, and the voice acting is second to none. Uncharted doesn't come close to being a movie, it proves that videogames are their own art form equal to them. This is one action adventure game you simply cannot miss. Rated: Teen
Half-Life 2: The Orange Box includes:
- Half-Life 2 - full edition

The Orange Box is fun on so many levels that it was a strong contender for Game of the Year. Rated: Mature
But what is it? It is a customizable card game in the vien of Macgic the Gathering, Yu-gi Oh! or Pokemon, with one key exception, the game brings the cards to life.
Place a card in front of the PlayStation Eye and presto, a 3D version of it comes to life on screen ready to do battle with another card.
The game itself was surprisingly good, and the PS3 keeps track of all the rules, so no bickering as is so common in normal card games. The Eye of Judgment is something you must see to believe. Rated: Teen
With stunning graphics and a varied story, CoD4 is a solid game, but it is the multiplayer that really makes this title stand out.
From excellent maps and a variety of weapons to unlockable content, this is the game you want to go online with and live out your armchair soldier fantasies. Rated: Mature
With a new developer many were frightened of what the game would become, let me squash those fears, Guitar Hero III rocks as hard as the previous games. Throw in new boss battles and competitive modes and you have an excellent sequel.
Guitar Hero III is not as pretty or as varied as Rock Band, but it costs less and works more often, which seals its place on this list. Rated: Teen
Ratchet & Clank Future is a very clever game that will have you torn between exploring every nook and cranny of its lush landscape and running through it as fast as you can to find out what happens next, either way you won't be disappointed. Though rated teen, the humor and action is benign, I would have given it an E10+ as tweeners are as likely as any to fall in love with this cute, yet satisfying platformer. Rated: Everyone 10+
The Elder Scrolls IV: is similar to previous entries in the series. It's wide open gameplay features countless opportunities to make your own fun, but should you decide to stick to the story, and explore all the side missions, you are looking at 200 hours of game time. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is a massive romp through a fantasy world filled with adventure. It is an epic game not to be missed. Rated: Mature
Unreal Tournament III on the PS3 runs shocking well, unlike other console versions of the series. It also supports both USB mouse and keyboard play as well as the Sixaxis PS3 controller. Epic did an amazing job of customizing play options to work with the PS3 controller, and this may be the best console first person shooter configuration to date. Gory and violent, while extremely fun, this is not a game for the little ones. Rated: Mature
We've all joked about someone walking in the room, seeing a sports game and thinking it's live T.V., with FIFA Soccer 08 it's a real possibility as I can think of few games that looked this realistic.
Combine that with a dizzying array of teams, play modes, and options and you get a deep and compelling sports game. Whether you love the game, or are looking to learn about it, this is an excellent title. Rated: Everyone
From it's sprawling medieval towns to gorgeous animation effects Assassin's Creed is a top rated game for a reason.
As Altair you will sneak around, a lot, in an attempt to steal, kill, and perform a variety of other objectives. While some complained that the game got repetitive, deciding to take on the side missions should provide variety enough. Assassin's Creed takes the Thief game concept and executes it perfectly. Rated: Mature
