The Innovation award went to Brain Training, while Lego Star Wars II got Best Gameplay and Guitar Hero won Best Soundtrack. Loco Roco picked up two awards, coming out on top in the Character and Children’s categories. Shadow of the Colossus also scored twice, winning the Artistic Achievement and Action and Adventure awards.
