I know it's been said before, but it bears repeating: when it comes to videogames, World War II is the gift that just keeps on giving. It exists in a perfect middle ground where technology was just advanced enough to allow for interesting gameplay possibilities, but still primitive enough that individual humans were still an important part of the equation.

Although there have been a number of games that have attempted to capture the Hulk in an electronic format, none of them have really nailed the pure destructive essence and dual nature of the Hulk's condition until this one. It's funny, even though this particular version was created as a tag-along to the much-maligned Ang Lee film, I think the end result was even better than the more recent, free-roaming Hulk: Ultimate Destruction.

Although the formula has long since been left in the dust, I feel comfortable in saying that if this game had hit shelves within a reasonable amount of time after the original, it would have stood a good chance of becoming a leader in the action genre.

A must-play effort that manages to be intensely surreal while being instantly, strangely familiar at the same time, Tron 2.0 is set inside a series of computers, networks, and the Internet itself after main character Jet Bradley is transformed into a series of 1's and 0's by a sapient math analysis program in need.

Right off the bat, Scarface
does something smart by establishing that it isn't going to be a simple adaptation or an attempt to retell the film in game form. No, Scarface: The World is Yours
is more of a concept piece, one that dares to ask the question "What if Tony Montana, rather than being a mercurial borderline sociopath on a seriocomic journey to self-destruction, were a videogame character?"

Game Description: Scarface: The World Is Yours takes you into a complicated world of excess and greed. You'll become Tony Montana, one of the most ruthless gangsters ever depicted on film. The original screenwriter has created an all-new storyline that authentically recreates the historical time period of the film, and gives you the chance to live out the events of the film—or change them and create a new life story for the famous gangster.

Stylish and stylized, Aeon Flux is one of the more unusual additions to the Basement since it's an extremely rare animal—a licensed game that succeeds thanks to developers who took the time to understand their subject before crafting a gameplay experience that's the perfect interactive extension of the characters and world it's based on.
