All-Stars Racing offers up a surprisingly addictive brand of cart racing that feels solid and intuitive. The game features a wide array of classic SEGA characters to race with, but the depth comes from a healthy amount of well designed tracks. During races you'll use power-ups to get past the field -- in an experience that's very reminiscent of Mario Kart. But unlike its Mario equivalent, you can play the SEGA game on your PS3 and 360, fulfilling a sizeable gap for both next gen systems. The graphics in the game are vibrant, and there's plenty of gameplay modes to keep you busy as a single player or in online multiplayer.<br><br><b>Score: 8/10</b>

In Dante's Inferno you're a crusader fighting your way through hell to retrieve your fiancé, Beatrice. The game utilizes a similar system to the God of War franchise, which features an overhead perspective on the action, with a large dose of combat using various scythe attacks and some strategic button mashing. You'll also use magic relics to unleash damage on the hordes of enemies and bosses scattered in your downward descent through the rings of hell. The graphics and scenery in the game are varied and crisp. However, the game is very adult, featuring plenty of gore and nudity, and at times pushes its M for Mature rating. <br><br><b>Score: 8/10</b>

Aliens vs. Predator
Sci-Fi fans have long yearned for a standout product from the Aliens/Predator canon. While the last few movies fell short, the franchise remains. The latest attempt is Aliens vs. Predator, the game. You can play as an Alien, Predator or colonial marine. Each path is very different: Predators are all about stealth, using invisibility and heights; Aliens are super fast and deadly up-close; marines are armed to the teeth in the classic third-person perspective. The sounds and character effects are ripped straight from the movies, and add an immersive feel to the action. Unfortunately, the melee attacks for all classes aren't as smooth as they should be and the game is sometimes muddy looking and uninspired in level design. On the positive side the multiplayer action is fun though not very deep.<br><br><b>Score: 7/10</b>

While the first Bioshock was a fascinating mix of action shooter and moody storytelling, the sequel plays it safe with similar environments, weapons, sounds and effects. The new multiplayer is decent, but skulking around the world of Rapture ultimately works best as a single-player experience. Bioshock 2 is very good, but if you've played the first game (which you absolutely should), you've definitely been there and done that. <br><br><b>Score: 8/10</b>
