So without any further a do let’s head right into best video game released in 2006. A new article will be posted soon covering the best games released in 2007. 



Not only immersive, but addictive. Once quest has begun, it will be near-impossible to put the controllers down until Link and Midna have saved the day. – Nintendojo

An excellent addition (and homage to “Ocarina”) to the franchise, and you’ll have an enormous amount of fun playing it from start to finish. Get over the fact that the Wii’s hardware is simply not as powerful as the other next-gen machines and get into the fact that Twilight Princess is one of the best games you’ll play this year – GameSpy

The greatest Zelda game ever created and one of the best launch titles in the history of launch titles – second only, perhaps, to the at-the-time ground-breaking “Super Mario 64.” It is also one of the finest games I have ever played. – IGN



Each stage is memorable…They all combine for an unforgettable adventure through 36 hectic, desperate hours of a group of soldiers’ lives…A visual and visceral masterpiece. – 1UP

The dark storyline isn’t fantastic, but the way it’s presented certainly is. Gritty characters with a rare touch of humanity, intense combat that will leave you breathless, and some great multiplayer modes are sure to keep you hooked until the inevitable sequel comes along. – Thunderbolt
Rarely do games with this much fanfare actually live up to their talked-about potential, but Gears does something that almost none do – it exceeds the hype. It looks almost unbearably gorgeous, it sounds out of this world, it plays as smooth as butter but most of all – it’s fun. Pure, unadulterated, blood-spattered fun. – WHAM! Gaming



Half-Life 2: Episode One demonstrates how games ought to be made, forged by dedication, imagination and risk-taking. It’s an outstanding, stirring experience. – GamesRadar+

Valve really has done a great job showing people that episodic content doesn’t have to be such a bad thing and can give the developers a chance to implement changes to the code as hardware becomes more and more powerful with time. The game is absolutely worth playing through and should not be overlooked in any case. – GamerNode

Delivers exactly what you’d expect from a Half-Life expansion: it returns to the intriguing setting of City 17, delivers lots of tight action sequences and well-crafted puzzles, and is arguably the best-looking shooter out today. – GameSpy



Years from now, Bully will stand up on any ‘best of PS2 list’, Jimmy Hopkins will still reign as the coolest kid in school, and hopefully one day soon I will finally find all 76 hidden rubber bands. – G4 TV

Sure, there’s some slowdown in places, and graphically everything looks as current-gen as it possibly could, but the gameplay mechanic and the sheer fun you’ll be having reliving your school days will make you completely oblivious to any of these problems. – RewiredMind

I think most high-school kids would get a kick out of this game, regardless of whether they can play GTA or not. – Gaming Target



Simply put, Oblivion is a game where the story never ends. The story of your exploits in any other game would have natural gaps, but here you can just keep telling it, with every yarn feeding logically into the next. – Official Xbox Magazine UK

For those used to linear, Japanese-style role-playing games, Oblivion will seem like a revelation. All the games in this series have been known for their sheer vastness and freedom of choice, but the Elder Scrolls IV takes that concept and runs with it. – G4 TV

The main quest, side quests, townspeople, graphics, open-endedness, etc combine to make one of the best videogames available on any console. – PGNx Media
