Bioshock

BioShock is on the same par as those great classic films that have won awards for years and this one will for the video game industry. The combination of a great story and fantastic gameplay with wonderful scenery has been so well created into an all around well crafted game that it would be a shame to miss out on playing it. – Game Chronicles
Everyone will play it differently, and have a different experience. Some like myself will find it drenched in tension and atmosphere, having run into many a situation where the poop was scared out of me. Others, like a friend of mine, will claim that its intuitiveness, combative freedom, and creativity puts it above the spiritual predecessor “System Shock 2,” and wonder at how convincing the whole affair can be. – Gaming Age
A dark and astonishing masterpiece…I spend my career, and my gaming life, waiting for a moment when a game just astonishes me, when I can’t believe what I’m seeing, what I’m doing. BioShock has five.  – PC Gamer UK

Metal Gear Solid 2

You’ll be more impressed that you can make Snake stare lecherously at a centerfold poster one minute, only to have him pop out and choke someone to death the next. – Maxim Online
 The environments are amazing, when on the deck of the tank the rain effects are extremely lifelike, along with rain drops hitting the ship and characters – Cloudchaser
If you’re wearing body armor just before you start a new part of the plot, you’ll see your character wearing it in the cut-scene as well. I feel that this effect really adds to the suspension of disbelief in MGS2 and helps it be that much more impressive. – Gamezilla
Enjoyable, captivating, and thrilling. – Gaming Maxx

Alan Wake

A brilliantly told story, excellent voice acting, and an atmosphere so unnerving you’ll sleep with the lights on for a month. If only it came with a bottle of instant amnesia so that you could play it for the first time more than once. – The Escapist
While its not the generation defining game the epic development schedule might’ve hyped, Alan Wake is still a fantastic, 10-hour-plus play-it-on-the-couch linear action game – with brains required or not depending on your preference. – Computer and Video Games
A challenging and genuinely frightening experience…As a survival horror, Alan Wake succeeds admirably, and comes highly recommended. But as a self-proclaimed “psychological action thriller”, it falls short of its ambition. – NZGamer

 Max Payne

You leave the experience a little different, and, like a girl that’s been burned too many times entering what looks like a good relationship, you leave a little wary as well. You know you’ve been treated well; you don’t feel the scars and scabs that other games have left you with. – PC Gameworld 
There is enough repetitive, standard fare about Max, coupled with its short play time, that makes it hard to flat-out recommend. – FiringSquad
A stunning techincal (gameplay) achievement that may be lacking a decent script to truly lead the way into the era of interactive PC movies. – ActionTrip
