    You will be hard pressed to find a FPS that looks better than Half Life 2 when it is played at its max settings.

    A stunning achievement for both Rockstar and Sony. It shows just how powerful the PS2 system is when used right. This game has the potential to last months and months on end, especially for the 100% target.

    The game is shorter than the original title, and if you play games to get a great ending, Halo 2 is not going to give it to you. The ending made our jaws drop, but not in a positive sense.

    It has its problems and it's a bit of a let down considering the next generation console, but what Nintendo have done is used the Wii's strengths well with this game and that along with an excellent storyline, makes Twilight Princess a must have for early Wii owners.

    Visually the game is stunning. You really need a HDTV to see this game the way it should be played but even at the lower resolution its better than anything on the console so far.

    There are sections of the game where you hit invisible walls -- presumably to make way for more expansion packs, although at the time of writing the only expansion available for Xbox 360 owners is some rather expensive downloadable horse armor -- and some wacky bugs that'll sometimes see you floating on air when you dismount a horse.

    Gone are the drab boring levels from Pandora, in are some fantastic new levels such as a Russian Boat, a security corporation and others.

    The best console arcade racing game ever and perhaps the best of all time, even topping the mighty "Daytona USA."
    • 93 Metascore
    • 94 Critic Score
    The game is challenging, but the challenge of the game seems incredibly balanced.

    An early candidate for 2004's best PC game and quite possibly the smartest game purchase choice you'll make since leaving "Daikatana" on the shelf.

    Rockstar have captured the lifestyle of the streets perfectly, adding a few colourful characters along the way, humour, plenty of cars and things to do, making this a must have title.

    Its ease of play will allow anyone to pick it up and get stuck in. That ease of play however will turn off people looking for a more challenging in-depth game.

    It has the same impressive depth and ability as the highly acclaimed PS2 version.

    Tells a brilliant story, delivers intensive action, and produces a fine adventure/platform title for all types of gamers.

    If Vanessa Williams sang 'Save the best for last' about Microsoft, it would be about this game.

    Where NFL 2K5 really shines from an Australian perspective, however, is that it really nails the TV presentation aspect.

    Combining a powerful turn based engine for the management, and an insanely enjoyable RTS engine for the battles, Activision and The Creative Assembly have produced what could easily be the best strategy game of 2004.

    One of the finest looking Gamecube games on the system to date, if not the finest. From the moment you first fire up the game, you are thrown into a visual explosion of detail which is enhanced greatly by the scanning systems in the game and also the various enemies.

    This is the greatest representation of the National Football League to hit the market thus far and the 2005 additions make the game even more value for money and interesting to play.

    It’s hard to explain in words why the peripheral works so well and why you actually feel like you’re the next Dire Straits.

    The music comes more towards the player as a cinematic element rather a primary track and it is similar to some of the more recent James Bond films during the faster paced action scenes.

    If Shadow Of The Colossus were a movie, it's pretty clear that it'd be Orson Welles' best known work, "Citizen Kane." Not that it's in black and white -- although it's not the most colourful of titles -- but simply because it's a masterpiece of a game in terms of artistic direction and scope.

    In all areas it has the credentials but the bugs all point towards another EA title that has been rushed out the door... Its squad based tactics are rewarding and the overall game does have the right fun factor to go along with the diverse gaming options.

    A must have game for the Nintendo DS and is possibly even good enough to make you go and buy a DS unit for it.

    Once in-game it is clear The Sims 2 has improved greatly as far as neighbourhood interaction is concerned.

    Everything up until now has been impressive, but nothing compares to the impact this game will have in terms of what you expect from your game playing experiences.

    The single player campaign while good, can be frustrating and to get the most out of the game Xbox Live really is a requirement. For everything good about the game there seems to be something disappointing such as the rally driving, but thankfully for Australian gamers and Codemasters, the V8 Supercars section saves this from being an average game.

    For the PC gamers out there who like a great story, intense action and varied gameplay, Chronicles of Riddick will really get you going, allowing it to go down as one of the best examples of a game which paired stealth, hand to hand and action in first person gameplay and passed with flying colours.

    Without a doubt this game is a must have for any Naval Simulation fan, the flexibility in complexity has so much to offer that allows for beginner all the way through to expert.

    Pikmin 2 will probably join a growing cast of quirky Gamecube titles, thinking specifically of fare like Donkey Konga, Luigi's Mansion and Super Monkey Ball, that have their ardent fans but don't quite do enough to appeal to the broad mainstream.
