Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable
Platforms: PSP
Publisher: Atlus
Developer Atlus
Release Date: July 6, 2010

"To use a Persona term, Persona 3 Portable is a solid fusion of the core Persona 3 game and the improved elements that came into being with Persona 4. It maintains the same addictive qualities and unique atmosphere, and the addition of more user-friendly elements makes for a more modern game. For brand new fans ? perhaps people who started with Persona 4 ? P3P is a ridiculous value. Two takes on the main quest that take at least 50 hours each to complete, a smorgasbord of side-missions and bonus content, and a great New Game Plus feature that actually encourages you to replay the game ? especially if you want to swap genders. Needless to say this is the kind of game that could last a good long while before exhausting everything it has to offer." - Adam Woolcott

Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I
Platforms: PS3 (PSN), Wii (WiiWare), Xbox 360 (XBLA)
Publisher: Sega
Developer Dimps
Release Date:

"Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I is all about speed, jumping and more speed. That's been the formula that has worked since 1991 with the series' Sega Genesis debut. Along the way, Sonic Team lost sight of its main character's strengths; somewhere around the time that they made the jump to the expansive world of 3D gaming. Thankfully, Sonic 4 returns the hedgehog to the safety of a 2D plane and it feels like a blast from the past." - Matt Swider

Space Invaders: Infinity Gene
Platforms: Xbox 360 (XBLA)
Publisher: Square Enix
Developer Taito
Release Date: September 15, 2010

"Space Invaders: Infinity Gene is a fantastic new twist on the Space Invaders theme. Fans of shoot 'em ups would do well to check this out, as it will surely become a popular entry not just in the series, but in the genre as well. For 800 Microsoft Points ($10), there is a ridiculous amount of content here and I can't recommend it enough." - John Scalzo

Split/Second
Platforms: PC, PS3, Xbox 360
Publisher: Disney Interactive
Developer Black Rock Studio
Release Date: May 18, 2010

"Split/Second follows its ?reality TV show? theme very closely in that I feel like it's the greatest arcade racer to come out in a long time, but not everyone has caught on just yet. With tracks ravaged and different for every lap and timed explosives akin to Mario Kart, Split/Second just overtook Burnout and sped through its burning wreckage." - Matt Swider

StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty
Platforms: PC
Publisher: Blizzard
Developer Blizzard
Release Date: July 27, 2010

It was a long wait, but StarCraft fans the world over were rewarded in 2010 with StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty. We'd write more but we're too busy savoring every moment of the game, because who knows how long it'll take Blizzard to bring out the second chapter of StarCraft II. - Gaming Target Staff
