This offering from Square Enix, known for Final Fantasy and other role playing titles, drops a customizable character on a prison planet for the violently unstable. There are no guards, only crazed inmates keen on killing you. Your goal is to survive and escape the planet. The plot is great, but the execution is missing something but... 

...You be the judge!

The creatively named Killzone 3 lets gamers know exactly what it is - the much anticipated latest installment in the Killzone series. This Playstation 3 exclusive is a must buy for fans of the previous games and for FPS fans in general.

Radiant Historia couples a combat system similar to Tactics Ogre with a story reminiscent of Chrono Trigger. As with many Atlus products, the game features multiple endings and dozens of hours of gameplay. Exclusively available on the Nintendo DS, Radiant Historia is the perfect game for goofing off at work or school.

Rated M
First Person Shooter (FPS)

This may be the game to pull you away from Call of Duty, Battlefield, or to get you back into first person shooters. A leveling system reminiscent of Call of Duty adds complexity to this fun shooter. Additional upgrades and rewards are available to players who "kill with skill".
