    There has never been, and will not be for a long time a more convincing and immersive game released.

    Luckily both the AI of your squad and your enemies hold up fairly well.

    An unmissable title. It's been a very long time since I've enjoyed a videogame so much, and I feel that every gamer owes it to themselves to plough into Stranger's Odd adventure.

    Just like "Disgaea," Phantom Brave is an innovative, and superb gaming experience from start to finish.

    But behind the stunning visuals, the somehow very moving intro movie, and the bouncing breasts of the DOA girls lies a solid, addictive and extremely entertaining fighter that deserves a place in anybody's collection – and the Live modes are the icing on the cake.

    The only aspect of the game that the developers have neglected to improve is the enemy AI, who remain as simple as ever before and can be lead like well armed, extremely dangerous sheep to the slaughter.

    What San Andreas does is take every element from the previous two games and amplifies it. Everything good about the series has become even better, while the bad aspects have become mind-numbingly dire.

    Replays are like the FMVs of bygone years, cars sparkling with lensflare as they screech around a corner, just before you slyly knock them out of position and take the first place. Now all of your road delinquency can be recorded in some of the best graphics available in gaming today.

    Real time combat is simultaneously both Jade Empire's greatest achievement and its biggest flaw. When it works, it's more satisfying than any role playing game on the market. This is marred, however, by a dodgy camera and flawed upgrade system.

    You really need to invest a huge amount of time to reach the depths of this racer, and whilst it is gloriously fulfilling and rewarding, few have such time to spare.

    You’ll be impressed by the Act of War’s destructible landscape, you’ll laugh at the ridiculous acting and you’ll yelp with a sick joy as your snipers pick off enemy commandos hidden in the undergrowth.

    Don’t expect to complete Imperial Glory anytime soon; like a good book, you’ll have to invest your time, but you’re repaid with a great reward.

    While the gameplay may essentially be the same as the online flash version, which you’ll have no doubt tinkered with, the grip that Zoo Keeper has makes shelling out the money’s required more than worth it.

    Simply put: if you are a fan of boxing, this game is a must-have. The controls are hard to get used to at first, but once you do get used to them, prepare to unleash some serious fury upon your unfortunate foes.

    We know it's not for everyone, and we know it's short, but in the end we find it hard to fault a game that not only makes a mockery of standard gaming conventions, but delivers one of the most unique and entertaining (albeit tiring) experiences on the GameCube.
    • 91 Metascore

    The fact that there is neither 'easy' mode, nor training section hurts. The game is too harsh and hence off putting.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    While the game will not appeal to fans of more serious, focused shooters, and the Story is still not quite up to scratch, this game is still highly recommended thanks to some excellent humour and the top-class multiplayer.

    Even if disk two is useful only as a coaster for your role-playing coffee mug, Shadow Hearts: Covenant will still give you thirty hours of fantastic gameplay. That, in my opinion, is worth paying for.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    On the whole, it’s an addictive, highly entertaining, egg-chucking cloud-drawing high-scoring romp with plenty of replay value that positively reeks of the Nintendo Difference and is guaranteed to while away many a dull train journey.

    Yes it’s shorter than an Ewok and easier than the dancer with the six tits in Jabba’s Palace, but it’s a jam-packed Death Star of replayable fun - and whether you’re six or sixty, isn’t that everything you could ever dare hope for in a game?
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    While the lack of true visual quality can be overlooked, the slightly confusing, and at times overwhelming interface that you're presented with can add to the nerve wracking nature of the game.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The added characters, the RPG elements, combined with the beautiful stylings of the previous game sum up to one quite incredible game.

    Flying jets in the near future (2010) over the homeland of Osean and defending it doesn’t get more realistic or fun than this.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Brings a fresh twist on a tired genre: providing the player with a real sense of choice – and coupled with an innovative USP, enchanting charactisation, a rich narrative and gameplay that really feels like what the game.
    • 81 Metascore

    But all the dazzling gameplay, and stunning aesthetics can’t hide the fact that Hot Shots Golf simply isn’t truly designed for handheld play.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An exceptionally good game. Daring to remain different, continuing to be wildly imaginative and striving at being furiously frustrating, those who loved the original will find much pleasure from this sequel and see its price tag as just an expensive luxury.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    While the incredibly stylish graphics will be the initial draw, you’ll stick around for one of the greatest examples of pure gameplay this side of the aforementioned "Katamari Damacy."

    A thrilling, entertaining racer that's sadly lacking polish. Worth a look, nonetheless.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Even a game so entwined with the concept of hell and damnation shouldn't make playing it a torture. Given proper time to cultivate skills, this game will yield a sumptuous banquet for you to enjoy - but sadly it doesn't get anywhere near the casual treat it should have been.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It’s the sort of game you’d find yourself playing while on hold during a telephone call, or waiting for your computer to load - just like how you’d probably find yourself doodling if there was paper and a pen next to you instead of your DS.
