The GameRevolution Hall of Fame | Every ‘Perfect’ Score

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Reviewer: Nicholas Tan

Quote: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is a testament to the strength and importance of games that create living, breathing worlds, while affirming the value of long-term commitment over instant gratification. The absence of companion control, though a glaring flaw, ultimately does not spoil its purposeful, refined, and genre-defining design. Endlessly replayable and a phenomenal landmark in gaming, Skyrim deserves a place in every true gamer’s collection.”

Portal 2

Reviewer: Daniel Bischoff

Quote: Portal 2 is an exceptionally well-crafted, intelligent, entertaining, humorous game. You will laugh. You will feel like a freaking genius. You will want more. And yes, you will probably be hearing quotes from Portal 2 for the next three years.”

Fight Night Champion

Reviewer: J Costantini

Quote: “My biggest worry is that the gamers who would most appreciate Fight Night Champion are probably the last ones who would try it. Core gamers don’t play a lot of sports games, and sports gamers don’t play a lot of story-driven games. But this is the rare beast that could finally unite jocks and dorks once and for all, or at least pit them against one another in the same ring.”

Pac-Man Championship Edition DX

Reviewer: Blake Peterson

Quote: Pac-Man Championship Editions DX is a great game and a must-have for anyone who is a fan of old-school, classic games. I’m already in the top 20% on the leaderboards and I’m only going to get better the more I play, so if you want a chance at keeping up with me, you should download yourself a copy soon.”

Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood

Reviewer: Daniel Bischoff

Quote: Brotherhood‘s story is easier to follow, has an amazing variety of missions and replayability, and the soundtrack is amazing throughout. There’s no doubt you’ll be wanting more immediately following the end. With a campaign worthy of sequel status and a multiplayer mode full of fresh, entertaining ideas, there isn’t enough praise I can lay on AC: Brotherhood. Assassin’s Creed is one series I don’t mind interacting with annually, monthly, daily, now.”

Red Dead Redemption

Reviewer: Blake Peterson

Quote: Red Dead Redemption is a game that leaves you satisfied with your experience with a great ending that will hopefully lead right into the sequel (or at least some DLC) and at the same time makes you want more. Seriously, this is the best GTA since Vice City, and it’s not even technically GTA. With more co-op missions on the way and an already enticing multiplayer beyond the single-player game, it’s going to be a long time before this one rides off into the sunset for good.”

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

Reviewer: Joe Dodson

Quote: “We’ve torn ourselves away from this masterpiece to bring you this review, but the call of the ghetto is growing louder. If you fashion yourself a contemporary gamer, you must play Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. It’s that simple. The series is an anomaly, the work of mad geniuses, and somehow the newest one is priced as though it were just another game and not one of the greatest of all time. Way to represent, Rockstar.”

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3

Reviewer: Ben Silverman

Quote: “If you own a Gamecube, you should own this game, no question about it. However, the lack of online connectivity and the somewhat tougher controls lead to the second-best version of THPS 3 currently on the market. Still a monster game, though.”

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2

Reviewer: Ben Silverman

Quote: “This [Dreamcast port] is a better game than the PSX version, which itself is a better game than the first Tony Hawk, which itself is one of the best games ever. The result is

a no-brainer.”

Driver

Reviewer: Ben Silverman

Quote: “In the end, I just don’t have the words to describe how much fun this game is. Rarely does a game captivate the stoic and hypercritical Game Revolution office, but Driver has done just that. We’re hooked, and we highly advise getting hooked yourself. Besides, it’s a better way to learn how to drive than Driver’s Ed. Trust me.”
