If you're a massive fan of the series - and of Frank West in particular - it's still worth picking this up, but even at twenty notes, there's little to make this an urgent purchase.
Vietnam isn't a dramatic reinvention of Bad Company 2, though I doubt anybody would want it to be.
Dead Space 2's phenomenal production values, including perhaps the best use of sound in modern gaming, ensures the game stands tall amongst its peers. Most of the time, anyway.
There's plenty of things to like in LEGO Star Wars III, though some of them might be buried a little too deep for younger players.
Brink is a game that deserves a chance, and those with a penchant for the multiplayer shooter owe it to themselves to give it a look.
Dungeon Siege 3 is noticeably pricier than the competition in the genre, but it's a modernised take on dungeon crawling that brings a few new ideas to the series with superior production values.
Rage is a technical powerhouse, and if you can overlook the bits that don't quite work, you'll find one of the most exciting shooters we've had in years.
Given the current landscape of the genre, it's fair to say that Bulletstorm is not only a great game, but an important one, too.
Switching to New York gives Crysis 2 what it desperately needed: a credible sense of menace to go alongside gorgeous technical fortitude and impressive artistic direction.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution is reminiscent of the best efforts from the golden era of PC gaming at the end of the 90s.
