    It's not just the best Grand Theft Auto to date, it's possibly the best game you'll ever play on PlayStation 2. It's simply that good.
    • 89 Metascore

    As with the incredible "Black," Criterion keep proving they know how to make a game.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Burnout devotees will love it but this is a game made for casual gamers. There's no massive skill required, it's a terrific accessible game for anyone.
    • 96 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    This is not just the best survival horror game yet; it's one of the best games of this generation. Every aspect of the game shines.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    This is an enormous world that will leave you enchanted, occasionally regretting your decisions, sometimes proud and always enthralled.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    It is the best looking, best driving game (even if the racing is pretty ordinary) out there.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    It offers lightning fast gameplay, beautiful graphics, streamlined control and near flawless networking. It's no exaggeration to say that you won't find a more feature-packed, high quality first person shooter on store shelves today.
    • 96 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    It's undeniably one of the best games ever developed, it looks fantastic and it's in many ways the very essence of video gaming.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    Almost frustratingly, you'll come across interactive objects that lead nowhere and have been included simply for realism's sake, which really demonstrates the kind of attention to detail that's evident in every facet of this production.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    Put simply, this is one of the best racing games of all time.
    • 91 Metascore

    Ninja Gaiden's greatest strength is its combat system, which gradually evolves as you progress through the game.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    Crucial to the succes of the game is the fact that the combat system works.
    • 95 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    It isn't a game that truly pushes the envelope, but it is one of the best shooters we've played in years, and it's one of the most solid multiplayer packages ever released.
    • 96 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    It's true that Valve's sequel isn't as revolutionary as the original was back in 1998, but it's arguably the best first person shooter you've ever played, and that certainly makes it worth your while.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    There isn't an annoying or bewildering array of modes because Rockstar had a single-minded ambition to create a game you play with your mates. Play the training modules if you like, but you won't need them. It's that good.
    • 95 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    One of the most impressive tiles to see release ever, and despite aspects of unrealistic handling in some vehicles; the game is near perfect.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    If you're a fan of the Astro Boy character, buying Astro Boy: Omega Factor is a no-brainer. But even if you're not, the game is produced so well in every regard that it's well worth playing through.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    The game's damage model has also been vastly improved.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    This is the best Tekken game you’ll play this side of the PS3, easily surpassing "Tekken 4" and "Tekken Tag Tournament" to claim the title. It’s fast, it’s furious, it’s a pleasure to play and a joy to watch.

    It isn’t just a brilliant game, it’s an experience not to be missed.
    • 97 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    An absolute masterpiece. It takes gaming to a whole new level, will last you a long time, and is an absolute must for any Nintendo fan, or anyone remotely interested in gaming.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    Put simply, this is one of the best racing games of all time...[and] one of the most fast-paced, visceral racing games you will ever play.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Clearly, this isn't another shooter which you'll blow through in an action-packed weekend, it's a game all about discovery and patience.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A game that practically reinvents the original and presents what's arguably one of the most visceral, compelling fighting experiences you're likely to have this side of 2005.

    The Halo 2 Multiplayer Map Pack is brimming with excellent ideas and terrific multiplayer action awaits.

    • 90 Critic Score
    It's a true classic, and at $59.95 (AU), it's a steal.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This kind of multiplayer in Sony's family friendly mascot franchise may sound odd, but it's actually a whole lot of fun, and offers the kind of compelling team-based experience that's traditionally not found in console shooters.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It's extremely funny but at the same time littered with dark moments as your Locos are attacked by nasty black spikey things from your childhood nightmares.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This game is an absolute ripper, with all the traditions of Burnout remaining intact for a mostly perfect move to the handheld. Another belter from Criterion.

    A terrific upgrade to what's obviously been a very successful franchise, but if a third evolution is to continue captivating audiences, it needs to take the Sims well outside of their houses and strolling down the streets of Sim City.
