    Probably the closest thing you'll get on the 360 to "Halo 3" until, well, "Halo 3" itself. If only it wasn’t quite so FPS-by-numbers, it’d be a classic in it’s own right.

    The racing itself is fun, if not sometimes a little irritating, the graphics are incredible and the game has a highly suitable soundtrack that fits the atmosphere perfectly.

    Whilst it doesn't exactly blow our minds in terms of innovation or sheer coolness, we can't help but applaud the sheer amount of fun you get for your money.

    Of course if you’ve gotten all the bonuses, all the skills for all six character classes and a fancy looking set of fissure armour, then Factions is the stand-alone expansion for you! You get a whole new campaign to play, a lot of new skills to find and a cracking good story to play through, not to mention a case that retains its newness for months. Marvellous.

    The sense of joy when you accomplish such tactics successfully will leave you begging for more, but the most intuitive thing is that you will start playing in such a fashion out of second nature after a short amount of play.

    Darwinia’s action can get repetitive, though no less addictive, and its AI issues can drag it down, but on the whole this is a refreshing game created with a pure love of gaming. Its unique interface and gameplay design set is apart from anything out there. The game’s appeal will no doubt be greatest with retro fans but its reach stretches to every gamer.

    It's the game that's finally got me using the PSP again, as opposed to just my DS. Unlike so many PSP ports and rehashes, it's perfectly suited to the system and perfectly suited to handheld gaming.

    In terms of a port, this is pretty poor. A two year old game and what advancements do we get? A high PC requirement and a few new weapons. Hardly worth it if you’ve already played the Xbox original.

    It might not be a slam dunk, but NBA 2K5 is as sweet as the swish of any three pointer.

    The story behind fable has to be one of the best I've ever come across. On more than one occasion, the plot took me completely by surprise.

    Despite these crippling flaws, Racing Gears Advance has that rare quality of being addictive.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    It's a stunning looking, fast-paced and enjoyable beat 'em up, but it lacks much of the depth and balance of its peers.

    By far the most complete RTS you’ll ever find. It makes "Civilization" look like a playground. Not for the light hearted mind.

    Even if you don’t intend to switch from playing some other MMO, you owe it to yourself to take advantage of a seven day stint in Faydwer.

    If you've ever felt that Mario needed more guns, explosives, and the ability to drive up to a villain in a sports car, then get out and throw the sports car at the villain's head, or that GTA would be vastly improved if the lead character was an indestructible mute on a pogo stick, then this is the game for you. It's just lacking a certain meatiness that (and here's that name again) the GTA games have in spades, even if they don't have quite the same level of originality that's been shown here.

    Predictably simple, brilliant, and delightful.

    It’s got everything the first Tribes game had with none of the lag. You heard me, no lag.

    It hasn’t moved from its niche within the RTS genre, but without compromising a single pixel of depth Paradox has managed to simplify and streamline the experience. Possibly Paradox’s finest title yet, certainly the most pleasing.

    Sound rocks. Literally. Whereas City of Heroes had an inspirational wide reaching soundtrack, City of Villains sounds like a rock festival with a few heavy metal bands. You’ll like it, and if you don’t give it a while. Then you’ll like it.

    Solid from the ground up and very worthy of your attention; it takes the key elements of the genre and polishes them until they gleam, whilst adding a few new and well-realised ideas to the mix, all the while ensuring your attention is held with its excellent storywork.

    The best adventure game ever. Diehard 2D fans will hate us for saying this, but that they can’t let go of Beneath a Steel Sky is a matter for the shrink.

    If you after the game for its online mode, you’ll find that you’ll never play the same game twice and wonder what you had been doing for the past 5 years. If you after a ground breaking shooter, you won’t find it here.

    It delivers racing thrills and the right amount of mental challenge, all wrapped up in a package that's inventive and - yes - easy on the eye.

    There aren't many other games that come close to the furious firefights and genuine sense of battle invoked by some of the set-pieces that crop up here, and short of sticking a colander on your head, digging a trench in your back garden and then getting a mate to shout in German while shooting at you, this is about as close as you'll get to the real thing.

    It’s the type of game that’s near impossible to put down once it’s been started and greatly encourages replay through the notoriety scoring system.

    It sets out simply to make you laugh, and give you a fun time, and it achieves that aim completely. Our prescription is to go out and buy it now - it's another essential title for the DS.

    It's the best copy out there. High praise, but damning with it; like the kid from the rich neighbourhood with the gold chains and stupid trainers who thinks he can rap, it might look the part but it's just not the real deal.

    An Average game, with a capital A. it has lots of things that are nice about it and some that are not great. In places it plays ok, in others not. It seems entirely right that the game has been set in ancient mythical China as the concept of Ying and Yang appears to be in full flow here.

    Has a great shelf life offering plenty of single player modes as well as an excellent multiplayer, so much like a round of golf this is one game that is likely to last for hours at a time.

    All in all, Age of Empires 3 is a top-notch game. Not too hard on the specs either, it’ll let you away with 256mb of ram and a 1.4ghz processor (ugly but perfectly playable).
