    • 67 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    With the trademark sharp witticisms layered onto challenging and inventive puzzles, this is the best possible start to the new season.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    They combine everything that was best about the older Pokemon games - namely, the more likeable monster designs and inventive spirit - with the much-improved looks and streamlined battle system of the fourth-generation ones.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The biggest and richest Assassin's Creed game to date - maybe not the best, but a place where, for want of a better expression, everything is permitted.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Although its strength lies in depth, longevity and gameplay rather than in artistry and atmosphere, it still deserves to stand shoulder to shoulder with ICO in the rankings of "the best games you've never played".
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The game as a whole is lacking in substance and rough around the edges, but Brothers' fantastic ending makes it a triumph all the same.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Symphony of the Night presents exquisite design, extraordinary scope, aesthetic coherence and transcendent elegance mostly unmatched elsewhere on Xbox Live Arcade, or anywhere else for that matter.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    There's absolutely no doubt that The Mega Quiz is the strongest instalment in the Buzz franchise to date...arguably the first time that the balance of questions, rounds and presentation has been so close to perfection.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    While there's perhaps not the verve and variety of peers like Spelunky or The Binding of Isaac, what Teleglitch does do is sell you on the atmosphere and the minutiae of combat.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Quite unlike anything you've played, Osmos is the kind of game even Brian Eno would admire.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Furious, wasp-in-a-jar electronica does little to diminish the pounding tension, while the restless minimalism of the visuals throws your perception into a blender, morphing seamlessly between 2D and 3D and back again, spinning you upside down before leaving you in a disorientated heap in the face of the next malevolent onslaught.
    • 92 Metascore

    In 1994 the fresh gameplay ideas Final Fantasy 6 brought to the RPG genre, coupled with the highly enjoyable story, brilliant ensemble cast and stirring score would have made the game an easy, trailblazing Eurogamer 10. It's either a remarkable testament to the original development team's vision and skill, or a damning indictment of a genre that this is so very nearly the case thirteen years on.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Past the wordy stuff, the way the game is presented is second to none - there's a mix of animation and drawing styles in the cut-scenes and credits that evokes old-school LucasArts, and the in-game animation/design is kooky and amusing but rarely disturbing.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A true classic. It may not have the admirable depth of "Final Fantasy Tactics Advance" or "Fire Emblem," but it has twice the character - and twice the fun.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The Vanishing of Ethan Carter leaves you with several amazing memories; moments that you will want to talk to your friends about for hours and will take great pains not to spoil for other people. The fact it packs those so painlessly into a three-hour game while other developers create empty works that take ten times as long to complete speaks volumes.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    On a server packed full of humans, with a decent commander and motivated, organised squads it plays like an absolute dream. So hurrah for that.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    When I finished Floating Cloud God Saves the Pilgrims, thanks to liberal use of the restart button, not a man had been left behind. It's a question of self-respect. Not many games can make you feel like that.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    With a super-easy Intern difficulty, the accessibility of the controls and the brilliance of the presentation, there's probably no better time for newcomers to jump in.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The games that are presented on Metal Slug Anthology are a marvel of art and design. There are, frequently, excruciatingly tough but all of their peaks are surmountable by the persistent and/or the talented.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Most pleasing of all is the cost. At a time when many downloadable games are sliding up to the 1200 MS Points barrier, the 800-Point price tag for this much-beloved classic shows that a little generosity can go a long way.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is serious sci-fi, concerned not so much with aliens and gadgetry, but the effects these things have on the soul.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    An exquisitely constructed expansion pack for anyone who liked City of Heroes, which also acts as a new entrance point into the world for the uninitiated. And the uninitiated really should, as it remains one of the finest online multiplayer games in existence.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    We haven't played a more atmospheric single or multiplayer tactical action game since "SWAT3," and despite its shortcomings there is still nothing that comes close to rivalling it for sheer breathe-down-your neck tension.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Larger and more intricate than The Knife of Dunwall, The Brigmore Witches emerges as one of the finest examples of how to not only expand a blockbuster video game, but also of how to enrich and deepen one.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    With the inclusion of a Software Development Kit in the package, the door is also wide open for user modifications and new missions for the game, which should extend SWAT3's life for the foreseeable future. I couldn't recommend your acquisition of this game any more.

    What sums Katamari Damacy's appeal up for me is the sense of unbridled joy bursting from every pore. It's the happiest game I've ever played, and the happiness is infectious. [JPN Import]

    If Revengeance didn't have camera issues this would be the easiest 10 I've ever given. As things stand it's still brilliant, staking out new territory in the genre and adapting certain Metal Gear characteristics so well that it makes the competition look outrageously bad. This is simply the ultimate one-man show, worth its ticket price many times over, an experience that improves exponentially as it gets faster and as you get better.
    • 94 Metascore

    If you've never played MGS3 before it's a must-buy. That's what we've made our final judgement based on; while this may not be great value for someone who paid full price for the game previously, for collectors, online gaming fans or people who haven't played MGS3, this is absolutely the definitive version of one of the finest games on the PlayStation 2.

    Nippon Ichi's games are good but Disgaea is undeniably the best. While some might begrudge the ostensible dumbing down with the return to grids and more tightly controlled play (there's no chucking enemies off the maps into oblivion or picking up map furniture as impromptu weaponry here) in reality this makes the game more accessible, more easily understood and ultimately more fun.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The combat intensive dungeon romping is fantastic fun, and recreates the table top AD&D experience like no other game before it.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Minor quibbles aside, Virtua Tennis World Tour is close to a ten-out-of-ten game on the PSP, and in many respects it deserves top marks for being the best game on the system, and one of our most played games in 25 years of repetitive straining.
