    After quarter of a century he's still fat, still round, and still bouncing on the ground. And still the greatest.

    A true gaming masterpiece. It is the type of game that reminds you why it was you first started playing games and manages to keep you both enthralled and amused from start to finish.

    The game is completely open, and apart from the first couple of compulsory missions, what you do is up to you.

    It's one of those near-perfect games that just about everyone will love even if they detest the genre in every shape and form. In short: Halo's a good game.

    The closest thing to perfection you'll play this year. You'd be a fool to miss out.

    If ever there was an example of how a first person shooter should be made, then this is truly it.

    Some people may have minor issues with the control and camera aspects, but once you get past the first hour or so they'll find yourself being sucked in a game which is so consistently excellent that it's suitable to call it a masterpiece. Hands down, the best game in the Resident Evil series.

    Now, about the sea. This is the biggest pain about The Wind Waker, the sea is flipping huge.

    GTA responds to all of our most basic impulses and allows us to do all the things we'd be given a life sentence for in real life.

    The second you start playing this game you realise that the latest Rockstar title is about a hundred times more complex than its predecessors. Not only is there a load of new weapons, cars and a huge new environment available, but the gaming experience itself has completely evolved.

    To me, GTA:VC is same old, same old. Nothing about it screams out to me. Everything I need for any GTA addiction would be found in GTA III. Vice City just takes that title, polishes it and chucks in an 80's theme.

    Bungie have succeeded in creating a world of characters that are impossible to care about. It turns from "Star Wars" into "Battlefield Earth" far too quickly, and even John Travolta would pass up on this one...The dominating storyline robs from what should have been a fantastic title, the atmosphere gets bogged down with drawn out cutscenes and then ultimately peters out.

    Is it better than "Wind Waker"? Yes – much better. Is it better than "Ocarina of Time"? That’s one that might need some retrospective analysis in a couple of years to figure out, but it's certainly going to be a close call.

    The Xbox 360 finally has the format-exclusive AAA title it's been hankering after since day one.

    Everything on offer here – from picking locks to becoming a vampire via setting off Indiana Jones-style traps in a dungeon whilst nicking treasure – is an absolute joy brilliantly realised.

    The game boasts a truly immersive, compelling storyline that will suck you right into the plot right from the offset.

    The new interface may throw a few of the more institutionalised players off the scent, but it won’t be long before they settle down for another few years.

    The second best game on the Xbox, and if first person shooters aren’t your thing, then I suppose it is the best. If you have an Xbox, you must have this game. If you don’t have an Xbox, buy the game anyway – it’s that good.

    Perfection in a fighting game. It does exactly what it says on the tin and about 200% more.
    • 93 Metascore

    For each part of the game there is trade off: the concept works well but to MMORPG outsiders some of the things seem, well, epically pedantic.

    Call of Duty 4 is stunning. It has some of the best set pieces I have ever seen and gunplay that’s only rivaled by Crysis. A wealth of multiplayer options and an amusing arcade mode make this an almost flawless package.
    • 92 Metascore

    It keeps reinventing itself anew throughout when it really should have run out of ideas and manages to successfully merge exciting combat with bracing platforming. It wouldn’t be far fetched to say that for the moment, it’s the staple of the genre.

    It's a bit of a shame that a game such as this has a flaw so crippling as a lack of tracks.

    Like Romeo and Juliet, I was deprived of my love for so long, but the third Total War has made the franchise accessible to all but the most casual of gamers.

    Small faults like the uneducated camera system, the immediate difficulty of the game and the somewhat below-par graphics are exactly what they are – small faults. Gameplay reigns king here and Super Mario Sunshine has that wrapped up nicely; what more can they offer?
    • 92 Metascore

    With an inconsistent learning curve and an often frustrating level of difficulty, first time players may well find themselves in at the deep end.

    Challenging, engrossing and rewarding, and full of lovely little touches (the creature that causes your suit to crash and require a ctrl-alt-del style 'reboot' with the joypad is a particular highlight) that show the designers have put their all into this and polished everything until it shines.
    • 92 Metascore

    Atmospheric, challenging and flawless – a recipe for success.

    The true colossus here is the game itself – it just raises the bar for everything that follows to a stratospheric level.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It might not have the normal mapping people expect and love so much, but has plenty of style, textures, realistic character models and superb lighting and explosions.
