    Even though simplicity is at the very heart of this game, it’s a dynamic experience as the player pulls off one unique challenge after another.

    A wonderful experience with solid platform style challenges and physics-based puzzles. Its simplicity, impressive artwork, gorgeous graphics and generally captivating atmosphere will keep you inside its mysterious world for ages.

    The Bridge is brilliantly designed to test one's wits without frustrating him/her in the least bit.

    Even with its minor control gripes Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops is another fantastic game in the incredible Metal Gear series that no gamer should overlook.

    I can’t say that his Axiom Verge game has made me rethink my stance on retro/retro-inspired games or platformers, but I had more fun than I thought was possible with this type of game.

    The unexpected twists and findings will help you really get into this title and see it as a worthy challenge, ideal for long winter nights... Beautifully conceived and just as well executed.

    An Assassin’s Creed game hasn’t been this good since Assassin’s Creed 2. There are some regrettable elements of repetition that have stuck with the series and are still present, although nothing that would get in the way of some solid action, realistic and incredibly exciting naval battles, in addition to the variety of activities Kenway undertakes in order to satisfy his lust for riches.

    More than anything else, we applaud the idea, effort and creativity behind this project. It's not quite as ground-breaking as, say, Valve's Portal, but it's almost as ambitious.

    The most fun I've ever had in a multiplayer mode.

    I really must say I initially expected a slightly more epic feel during certain segments of the game. Some scenes are a bit underwhelming, as is the very ending of the game.

    A well-conceived and intelligent game...The idea of total war is taken to another level, as Medieval: Total War clearly shows that total war is not all about brute force - quite the contrary.

    Once again, the gents and ladies at Petroglyph haven't disappointed. However, there's still nothing groundbreaking to be had here and due to the aforementioned slip ups, the game failed to achieve its full potential. But it comes very close.

    Technically speaking the game is the best Call of Duty to date and even the story issues can’t detract from that.

    The in-game graphics are beautiful. The only thing that bugged me was the fact that I couldn't make it work in anything higher than 640x480 (the previews mentioned it would support anything up to 1600x1200).

    Soul Reaver was a very fun game, but I'm delighted to say that Crystal Dynamics' Soul Reaver 2 is more mature, imaginative, complex, and ultimately more fun than the original.

    Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor definitely isn’t for everyone, but I can almost guarantee that everyone who gives it a shot will find something enjoyable about it, regardless of whether you are a Tolkien fan or not.

    I like this game for taking the darker tone and being full of blood that spurts as your enemies' heads and bodies fly around, and when they fall to the ground, you give them the last, violent blow, piercing their powerless bodies with your mighty sword.

    Good changes to graphics engine, interesting play on the CoH world, welcome emphasis on SGs and new focus on inter-game PvP.

    Atmosphere and dynamics of Sudden Strike are a reason why computer games remain more interesting than adventure novels.

    The brightest side of the whole project-the sound effects and the soundtrack.

    If you haven't played any of the previous Devil May Cry games, ironically, this is the best place to start, since it offers the best performance and a truly rewarding single-player experience.

    The fact remains that if you're looking for a fast, smart and fun fantasy themed team-based strategy game, you can't go wrong here.

    The gameplay is smooth and the environments are cleverly designed, so with the addition of a solid AI, it creates a realistic and a very authentic feel. While this game may not be remembered as a trendsetter, it gives you quite an enjoyable experience.

    Even with all its minor and more significant shortcomings HALO is still one of the most enjoyable FPS games I've ever played. The single-player is immersive, well-told and at times simply brilliant. With a powerful enough rig, all PC shooter fans will definitely want to own this game.

    Revelation is an excellent, but very difficult game, unfortunately the gamer that would fully appreciate it is, I am afraid, almost extinct. But, if you've passed a course or two in anger management and are not afraid to travel the ages of Tomahna, Spire, Haven, and Serenia with nothing more than a mouse and your functioning gray matter, you are sure to enjoy Revelation and the search for the prodigal sons of Atrus.

    Sure, online multiplayer matches can be great when played with friends, albeit nothing beats the feeling of slowly upgrading your XCOM HQ and starting to see the fruits of your hard work when your military leadership starts to match the might of the alien foes. So, again, it's more of a single-player treat and it's about time we had a game like that.

    Great and clean turn-based strategy fun with an exciting plot, loads of realms to explore, spells to use, and enemies to ice.

    The new weapons, Infected and graphical update is the shot in the arm players were looking for to expand the PvP experience.

    None of the improvements are revolutionary enough to attract people who were initially (or at some point) put off by the concept.

    With most sports games, the only real distinguishing feature with any of them is the graphics engines and the ease of play, and NBA Inside Drive 2002 has that in spades.
