NINJA GAIDEN
(Tecmo—Xbox) 9

The world's best hack-and-slash epic: Basic combos multiply into wall-run back flips and blood-spurt beheadings, the smoothest acrobatics and most graceful gore this side of the Pacific. Counter meatier and meatier varieties of enemies with swords, nunchakus and bow-and-arrow, all while grabbing technique-teaching scrolls and running across walls and—WWJD?—on water. You just won't be able to turn it into wine.

THE SUFFERING
(Midway—PS2, Xbox) 7

As Torque—a musclehead jailed for, but not necessarily guilty of, killing his wife and kids—you mostly splatter classical Stan Winston monsters. If you're in it for the copious blood (why else would you be?) there's no reason not to shotgun monsters and innocent prisoners, confirming your guilt at game's end. Why not encourage players to prove their innocence?
