    That said, MotoGP 09/10 is a solid game, it plays well, it looks good and has everything contained in the one package that any fans of motorcycle racing will enjoy.

    If you're a diehard Potter fan then I don't thinking you will need any persuading to buy this title but for those of you who dislike the boy wizard I hope you will give this one a chance as Traveller's Tales really have conjured up something quite magical.

    Although you might not get much else out of the game once it has been completed, the journey there is fun and at times a challenging one.

    One of my favourite Xbox LIVE Arcade titles to date and one I will be playing for a while to come.

    Although Sports Champions houses only a handful of events, with the type of events on offer, teamed with the number of modes and challenges easily makes this game a wholeheartedly recommended instant purchase along with your Move Motion controller.

    Rockstar have once again showed that they know just how to create video games, oozing brilliance from the graphical prowess to the elegant and fluid gameplay. It's a shame that the mission structure, variety and polish attempt to drag the game away from its shining glory.

    Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster is a fantastic game for kids and is still mildly entertaining for adults at the same time.

    Overall, VF5 would've been a completely average fighter, but with the inclusion of a good online mode, it's brilliant.

    Inferno Pool plays sublimely; it's quick, intense, fun and something that keeps the player coming back for another go.

    If you like beat 'em ups you can't go wrong with Soul Calibur IV.

    It is remarkable how much hard work has been put into a game that will generally only appeal to fans of the original subject matter.

    It was sad to have such a shallow and uninspiring storyline to keep you going until the very end, but with the game’s stunning visuals and effects, arcade pick up and play gameplay, online multiplayer and co-op features there is plenty here to satisfy your appetite in being the next Maverick or Ice Man.

    A very enjoyable strategic shooter, with plenty of depth and some hugely enjoyable moments.

    In many ways, Majin and the Foresaken Kingdom feels very much like Enslaved to me. It's a fantastic, gorgeous game that is pretty flawed but is still a joy to play.

    In the audio department the sound effects and music are passable, but not really anything worth paying much attention to. They get the job done, but never really push the boundaries, with most of the sound effects feeling very generic.

    Overall, NHL 09 is a worthy purchase for ice hockey fans and an improvement on previous NHL titles. Non-hockey fans may enjoy the game for a short period before switching back to familiar territory – possibly a rental for them.

    Shadows of the Damned doesn't quite hit the heights of either Suda51 or Mikami's history, but as long as you're willing to accept the sometimes vulgar humour there's an experience well worth its weight, and comes to a clever climax finale around the 10-12hour mark that leaves me hoping there's enough demand to warrant a sequel.

    What we have here is the definitive edition of Overlord. It is however, kind of annoying that it has been released at a full retail price, especially when you consider the time the game has been out on the 360 already.

    Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Game is a worthy addition to the franchise and perhaps one of the best movie video games you'll ever find, if you want to classify it as such. It's just a shame that it can be frustratingly difficult and it chose to put itself in a genre which is somewhat tired in this modern age.

    Watching 16 quads fly jump over a massive ramp, with each driver using different tricks, is amazing to watch. It's just a shame that a lot of the online players seem to be a lot better than me. Better keep practicing I guess.

    Fans that loved the original and cherish the idea of being able to relive the experiences with more friends will find everything they could have hoped for, but for those excited for the next step in the series will find that Crackdown 2 hasn't moved very far at all.

    While Starhawk does have its faults (particularly in the single player campaign), the multiplayer is deep, fun, decisive, and completely innovative. I don't think I've had a much better multiplayer experience in a long time. Starhawk has redefined the third-person shooter genre with intelligent strategy. I credit it with nothing less than successfully shoving itself back into the world of multiplayer gaming. It is arguably the best multiplayer experience the PlayStation 3 has to offer so far in 2012.

    Even with its simple cartoon Wii-esque visuals and simple child-like gameplay, Mini Ninjas still holds its own, no matter what age you may be.

    All-in-all Double Fine's Costume Quest is rather straightforward on paper, but it's the excellence of the game's design that brings it to life and gives the world around you character.

    Aces of the Galaxy is certainly not for everyone. Whilst the level of quality is clear and fun is certainly to be had, the game will scare off many with its fast and confusing style of gameplay.

    Overall there are a lot of things to do in Tiger Woods 11 which is great.

    If you are tempted by the style of gameplay and fancy yourself as a perfectionist when it comes to avid competition, be sure to make the jump as Mirror’s Edge is one of the more promising titles this autumn.

    A breath of fresh air for Xbox LIVE Arcade providing a fun turn based strategy game well worth your 800 MS points.

    The real joys are when you can explore together with seven other friends and share stories, show off stunts and attempt wacky challenges.
