    In every conceivable category, this game outclasses and outshines its predecessor by a wide margin. Gotta love it.

    A really top of the line shooter. I haven't had this much fun with a game of this type since "Nanotek Warriors". The graphics are gorgeous, the sound effects effective and the level design and missions a blast to play through.

    A solid RPG with a good story containing many twists and turns. The characters are a little too cutesy for my taste, but are adequate for the story.

    The Edge-Master mode is a wonderful idea and really helps to bring each character into focus. This is easily the best looking fighter on the market today, I just wish it had more characters to choose from.

    Pure, unadulterated, adrenaline pumping, arcade racing at it's best.

    Combines all of the best elements from other kart racers, adds a few unique touches and throws out all of the crap. What gamers are left with is an exciting 2 to 4 player game and a very challenging 1 player mode.

    Commentary is witty in places and embarrassing in others.

    Insomniac has raised the classic platform standards, set up by legendary gaming heroes such as Sonic and Mario, onto a new, higher level in this wonderful adventure for all ages.

    It suited my short passing style (didn’t much fancy 2002 tho) and there were just a few niggles with the gameplay that left you feeling this could have been better.

    You get a stable of incredible cars, wonderfully designed tracks and immersive gameplay thanks to some of the best sound effects ever to grace a console racer.

    I found the overall balance of the game to be much improved from its predecessor and the gameplay controls tweaked just right. I also liked the save anywhere at anytime feature.

    I would say, if you don’t presently own MGS or MGS2, this would be a good investment.

    The one main thing this game has though is staying power. I often found myself throwing the controller in disgust and turning off the game only to be drawn back to it shortly afterwards.

    The game rivets you to your seat with challenging gameplay, a thought provoking storyline and non-stop suspense as you sneak your way through level after level of action and intriguing twists.

    It's a horrifying action/adventure that will set the pulse racing and put the mind on constant alert.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A rather uninspired, but enjoyable enough experience. You will probably walk away feeling a real sense of accomplishment for solving the all of the puzzles, but the game itself will in all likelihood, not leave much of a lasting impression.

    Lunar 2 is a template for what sequels should be. While not pushing the graphical limits of the Playstation, the involved story and excellent soundtrack are wondrous.

    A few rough edges remain, but aside from that Suikoden III is a well planed and executed Strategy Rpg, that draws the player into the game in a way that few Rpg’s do.

    The graphics are absolutely stunning, but lose a few points for a quirky frame rate and lack of spectacular lighting, but damn they sure are perdy!

    Codies made too many changes from CMR2 (the front end and in-service menus) and not enough (the graphics!) at the same time.

    If you don't value your time to any great extent besides playing video games, give this gem a try. If it hooks you, it hooks you big time!
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The game is just designed and presented so damn well, that it hooks you in and keeps you coming back for more. It's one of those rare games that require players to think before they react.

    A masterpiece... I loved every single minute of it and I'm off to start again to find all of the secrets.

    With over 60 hours of gameplay and hundreds of animated characters both familiar and a new, Kingdom Hearts should prove a massive hit over the festive season.

    Offering “65+ songs”…..Hell you can utilize the game for the music alone.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Worth a play… even if it’s just to experience the outrageously frightening “Haunted House” section towards the end of the game. Meanwhile, first timers to the town of Silent Hill will reap much reward and lots of scares in the process.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Great graphics and decent sound effects really make this game fun. With all those different modes, reasonable number of characters, 84 different costumes, and hundreds of moves, I don’t know how this game could get boring.

    It’s a nice looking game and the controls are smooth. WU also offers more than any other game of its genre. The learning curve is pretty short making it versatile for all ages, both in single and two player modes.

    • 84 Critic Score
    It’s all great fun for the first few days and highly addictive but then you gradually slip away from the game and get on with real life. Just remember this… a dolls house is for playing with, but a Sim is for life!

    After you get over this titles considerable learning curve, you can really begin to settle in and appreciate the game for what it is... a wonderfully crafted story!
