GameSpy writes that three games stood out amid the frozen wastes of January:
"The gaming industry starts its seasonal slowdown this time every year, but that doesn't mean some great titles don't find their way to the stores. The Month of January set our heads spinning; Our Game of the Month pick and two runners-up couldn't have been more different. You've got a new twist on the racing genre (or, in this case, the 'crashing' genre), an old-school adventure game with seriously solid comedy, and a game about the happy subject of assassination that's almost too strange to put into words. Trying to name a winner was like comparing apples to coconuts to an artificial foot. But that's our job, and we love it."
