The game is surely a great treat. The game has so awesome graphics that all new graphics card are tested against the game for a count of the highest Frames per Second. The game requires a very high amount of skill for killing enemies with all your adrenaline rushing in. Crysis involves a huge number of futuristic weapons which the player has to select according to his requirement which is called the "Nano Muscle Suit". Crysis has also been called as the game of the decade with life touching realism and the best storyline for any FPS yet in the gaming world.
Pros - Innovative storyline, mind-blowing graphics.

Colin McRae: Dirt 2 is one of the best racing games currently in the market with mind-blowing graphics and very good and cool user interface. The game comes as a tribute to the Rally Legend Colin McRae. The game includes five different event types: Rally, Rallycross, Trailblazer, Land Rush and Raid. The World Tour mode sees players competing in multi-car and solo races at new locations. The game has X-Games like the real world and also includes one of the best multi-player modes in all the racing games.

The game has all the popular rally cars and SUVs which gives the player a taste about the cars.

Age of Empires 3 Publisher - Microsoft Game Studios
System Requirements for Age of Empires 3 - 1.4 GHz processor, 256 MB RAM, 2.0 GB hard disk space, 64 MB video card.
Age of Empires III (3), is one of the all time favorite real-time strategy game. Age of Empires III is used for numerous gaming competitions and tournaments for seeing how good the other player is against his opponent. The game has one of the best LAN playing modes giving it a very good and superior edge over those games which don't. The game is all about civilizations, many of them are from the Latin America but two expansion packs are also available with the Age of Empires III – The Warcheifs and The Asian Dynasties, which comprises of both Asian and American civilization and also a campaign on Indians too!
Age of Empires III has developed more and has become better in graphics and fine tuning but it loses out on one of the main factors i.e., not as user friendly as the previous two games were. The game has to be figured out properly before you can appreciate the graphics and storyline which takes some time. Rumors have been on that Age of Empires IV (4) will also be released soon in near future and it will be having the story of the present day modern warfare.
Pros - Excellent story, the game can also be played with very low end computers.
Cons - Without a proper graphics card, the game hangs up when the ship wars start which is one of the most mind blowing graphics in the whole game.
