    The control method is an interesting take on the usual styles, and helps make things challenging, like real golf.

    If you are looking for a tycoon style meal then chow down on this because you won’t find a better restaurant management game out there.

    A flawed, funny, likeable game that doesn't quite live up to expectations.

    Your girlfriend might like it, your mum might even like it, but with all of the excellent games coming out on all platforms over this holiday season we reckon it’s only worth a quick play through to justify to yourself why you spent the cash to buy the newest version of the EyeToy.

    There's nothing significant to recommend this over the previous ones if you already own one. If you don't then this is a good introduction to the series.

    Miss the golden age of retro? You’ll have a blast with The Last Guy, and while it’s easy enough for most people to get through if you’re dedicated enough, getting the top grade in any level is enough of a challenge to keep the hardcore working on it for days.

    Those difficult extra missions unlocked one by one after finishing the main game are certainly going to keep me occupied at least until Final Fantasy XII appears in the UK.

    There is some fun to be had with East India Company but not everyone will have the patience to stick with it.

    It isn’t perfect, and the repetitive nature of the combat really can grind at times, but if you liked Rare’s Kameo but thought it was let down for being too shallow and not enough platforming then you really shouldn’t be looking any further.

    There's plenty of potential in the Officers franchise. Few games manage to capture WW2 this well at the tactical level. But a few problems with friendly AI and stability do drag the score down somewhat.

    CMR2005 is a competant and at times exciting game, but it has two better rivals in "Rallisport Challenge 2" for Xbox owners and the excellent "WRC4" on PlayStation 2.

    The 2D graphics engine also allows resolutions of up to 1600x1200 and thus suits even the biggest screen.

    It's fun in short bursts, which ideally is exactly what I’m looking for in a handheld game.

    Wrestlemania 21's outrageously flawed A.I. and emphatically clunky control integration sully an otherwise outstanding display of wrestling prowess.

    Not a great game, but it is a good one.

    Electronic Arts have delivered a pretty good package here for the fans, it looks the part, plays well, and has a good selection of game modes to keep most people happy.

    The actual gameplay itself is pretty good and does reward skill unlike EA Sport's recent golfing output.

    It’s not the best DLC pack released for Fallout 3, but it’s certainly not bad.
    • 72 Metascore

    Make no mistake, it hardly comes close in terms of quality to the most vaunted titles of the console, but then again, addictive, joyful games for the Wii have been so thin on the ground of late that Deadly Creatures is bound - and perhaps deserves - to make some kind of an impact.

    I think this is a lateral development for the genre. I hail the ambition, I commend the experimentation and I recognise the potential. However, I wish it still didn't sport some of the genre’s silly little annoyances and the whole thing is a little too unbalanced in its execution.

    Five years is a long time for things to essentially stay the same, no matter how enjoyable they may have been in the first place.

    As it stands EyePet is a fun, funny, cute and diverting little game for your children that will also raise a few smiles among adult gamers too.

    There are times you want to be challenged, made to think, swept away by something unique and brilliant – and there are times where you just want to kick back and be entertained. For the latter, step up Project: Snowblind.

    GripShift’s one of those marmite games. You’ll either fall in love with the weighty physics and adore the time based collection challenges. Or you’ll detest the numerous restarts, and missing out on progression by a mere split second.

    And the inclusion of a short, after-thought of an add-on simply isn’t enough to encourage me to urge any of you to spend fifty pounds of your hard earned cash.

    There's plenty to like about Max and the Magic Marker, such as challenging puzzles, novel ideas and great gameplay mechanics. But the emphasis on creativity won't appeal to everyone - especially those who remember when this was all just fields, pipes and clinky gold rings.

    Personally I find it annoying that I lose points when my opponents hit me and not the other way around, but I still like the idea.

    It can’t possibly sustain its ardour, but nevertheless, purely for reasons of bringing Spider-Man to life in the best way possible, this is a spectacular experience.
    • 68 Metascore

    It’s just a shame that the resource model aspect didn’t pan out quite as I’m sure the developer envisioned, while the handful of other little annoyances ensure that the gameplay never lives up to the excellent visuals.

    Is it worth purchasing the PC version of Lost Planet if you already own the 360 one? Not really, no. You’ll only play using your 360 controller anyway, so there’s not much point in owning both copies.
