Welcome to the Hot Shot of the Week Archive!


The Hot Shot of the Week is a spotlight review on one particular title of the week that stands head and shoulders above the rest of the offerings in any given week. Chosen by various contributing reviewers here at CR, the Hot Shot places the focus on the best of the week as chosen by that week's reviewer. When previews are available for the Hot Shot title those will be included as well.

Browse through the archive to take a look at previous Hot Shots, and leave your comments if you have something to add, positive or negative, or just conversation.
