    The grace and speed of the animation coupled with the near-flawless controls make for a very engaging gameplay experience.

    MC3 works surprisingly well on a PSP, despite the grand setting and detail put into the original.

    If GRAW is as well supported with extra maps and content as Ghost Recon was, this is one of those genuine cases of a game you’ll be playing until a sequel comes along.

    Its inventive, thrilling and above all, quite possibly one of the most immersive game out there.
    • 88 Metascore

    It’s a full GTA on an UMD, capiche? Besides the controls and a few way too difficulty missions LCS provides you with more fun and durability than three standard PSP games put together.

    The scope is beyond epic.

    The much vaunted Gotham TV is fun, but more welcome is being able to save your replays when playing with friends rather than watching strangers.

    I really like Desert of Flames but the new mob lock system really doesn't work.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Probably the best launch title for the Xbox 360, with killer graphics, intense gameplay and a solid, if slightly small multiplayer element.
    • 89 Metascore

    The new addiction revenge part is doing that job perfectly, though, and if you like arcade racing games, Burnout: Revenge is the best you can get for the 360. Criterion has done it once again.

    Unless boxing disgusts you, you do have to own this, and I’ll take anyone on in the ring if despite the single player frustrations (if anyone suggests turning down the difficulty I’ll slug them) they can’t see the beauty and polish that has gone into the gameplay.

    Naturally, the game is highly detailed, and the transition to the current console generation has certainly been successful. But you can’t help but notice the amount of aliasing, and it really doesn’t suit Halo 3 in any way.

    Not only will you be giving yourself the chance to sample some of the best driving title delights in recent memory, but you’ll be encouraging all those other publishers and developers to keep on tweaking those much-loved, but ridiculously over-looked classics and offer up more of the same.

    It's not perfect, but for me it's the racing and driving game I've always dreamed of playing. Well done Eden.

    The best PC strategy game I've played for ages, since Rome: Total War in fact. Even if you aren't entirely happy about the period covered, it being something of a retread, there's so many new features and depth in this release to make any comparison with the first Medieval: Total War rather pointless.

    If you’re looking for a single player FPS then you really can’t go wrong here, the story is excellent and really drives the action along perfectly, and the attention to detail is superb.

    To hear a paper deer making sounds was one of the highlights in my gaming world for a long, long time. This should tell you something about this game, which is entirely in a league of its own.

    A gripping, and challenging, single player mode should eat up a good ten to twelve hours, and the wealth of multiplayer options should keep you going for a lot longer.

    GoW2 is exactly what every action/adventure game should aspire to be. Everything from the puzzles to the action to the story are so perfectly in sync that the game becomes less of a game and more of a personal conquest.

    It’s possibly the most mainstream Hitman yet but it’s also the most accessible and dare I say it the most fun. It’s certainly the most accomplished.

    It certainly feels like a complete segment, in that the ending is satisfying, interesting and leading towards the next episode.
    • 95 Metascore

    The game's sound effort is nothing short of impressive, with a particularly thumping, epic soundtrack playing throughout.

    GTA IV is the best game in the series. It's a triumph - especially in terms of design and character performance

    Portable Ops is a difficult game for both newbies and experienced players, but the way in which the whole aura of MGS has been transferred to a portable platform impresses to no extent.

    The more time you spend interacting with the characters and the world around you, the more you will enjoy the wonderful experience it has to offer. This is a galaxy truly worth saving.

    If you can grin and bear your predictably initial lacklustre performance, you'll soon realise you're within the grasp of one of the greatest Wii games to date.

    The Burning Crusade is a must-have, both for ongoing players of World of Warcraft but also the players who got bored at level 60 and stopped playing.

    Vice City Stories is an amazing game, and one I would wholeheartedly recommend, (a lot of work has gone into it, despite the fact that the city has undergone few changes from the original) but I hope that for the upcoming (if you can wait a year) "GTA IV" we see enough of a change to refresh the genre and franchise, because the games are great, but starting to seem quite samey.

    It serves as the perfect introduction to the franchise or indeed MMORPG games in general, as the quest system is exceptionally easy to follow, while the presentation and visuals are top notch.

    It is one of the best sporting simulations ever made and is easily the best basketball game to hit a console.
