Review Megapost: Shooters, Future Law, Gimmicks and Hobos

We've been holding onto this set for awhile. It just kept snowballing, you know? Well, here they all are in descending order of quality.

BioShock - PC / 360 - The best single-player game I've played since System Shock 2.
Portal - PC / 360 (and eventually PS3) - The second-best single-player game I've played since System Shock 2
Team Fortress 2 - PC / 360 (and eventually PS3) - For a game this outstanding, the 8 year wait was worth it.
Metroid Prime 3: Corruption - Wii - Arguably the best console FPS ever. Please ignore the Halo fans.
Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Trials & Tribulations - DS - Get your future-lawyering on in the last GBA->DS port in the Phoenix Wright series.

The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass - DS - Somehow both Phantom Hourglass and its predecessor Wind Waker left me feeling like there was like a whole third of the game that Nintendo forgot to develop. Still good, though.

Raw Danger! - PS2 - Horrible controls, disjointed plot, insane localization, clothes made from plastic bags duct-taped together . . but hey, at least it's a budget-priced title, right?

Expect the next batch of reviews in about a month, once all our wallets have a chance to recover, and we get a chance to spend some quality time with Guitar Hero 3, Rock Band, Beautiful Katamari, Mass Effect, Mario Galaxy, Unreal Tournament 3, and probably several others.
