    A truly remarkable achievement. Nintendo have created a beautiful game world and breathed life into it with puzzles, secrets, enemies, and loveable characters that will completely engross gamers around the globe. Stunning attention to detail is present throughout the game and is constantly evident in the visuals, audio and gameplay.

    Yes, Rare should have made the gameplay a little more original, pumped up the enemy AI, and definitely fixed the save system. But they gave the people what they wanted, and in that respect they've done a terrific job. There's so much to explore, kill, blow up and maim in this game that it offers hours and hours of bullet-riddled excitement.

    Simply the most exciting and involving N64 game to date.

    There is a downside to the improved graphics. In some of the stages there is some slowdown and degradation of frame rate.

    This game requires patience and practice - this may not make this such a great game for smaller kids or people who want to just get out there and race.

    The colour and graphics in the game are flawless and your quest to find Majora's Mask is more intriguing and thought-provoking the deeper you get into the game.

    We may be looking at the greatest game of the decade here.

    The five years it took to write have been well used and it is easily in contention for being one of the best games of the decade.

    Street Fighter Alpha 3 won't steal the profile from the more flashy entries in the fighting genre, but those who know, will find the best fighting experience next to a "Virtua Fighter 3" arcade machine.

    The graphics fly by at an astounding rate, and are so impressive that they would not look out of place in an arcade... One of the most polished packages to grace the Playstaion.

    It won't convert those who think basketball is a monotonous procession of points until the game is decided in the last 30 seconds, but its multiplayer larks will bring joy to clans everywhere.

    A breath of fresh air, a wonderful diversion, a good use of puzzle-solving energy. It’s like "Mario 64," but better. Any improvement over a game that got little but perfect ratings when it was released is an improvement to be applauded.

    The only real complaint I have with Tony Hawk's is the fact that the game gets very samey after a while.

    If you were left dry by Mario 64's lack of replay value, pick this one up and get wet in the realm of replay value, 'cause that is the only thing to explain why I'm playing this game 24-7.

    Some of the best looking graphics and most involving storylines ever seen on a console.

    The weapons effects are likewise perfect, with the machine gun sounds being nothing short of thunderous and the sounds of bullets whizzing past your head being just like you'd imagine them.

    The music is incredible, catchy and well-written. But best of all, the concept is original.

    You simply won't find a better space-shooter/sim on the market. This game's got it all: great plot, great missions, great sound and great fun! Psygnosis has got my vote for best PSX developer for 1997!

    One of the best games I have ever played. The graphics are superb, the gameplay out of this world. The sheer number of moves that Lara can perform is staggering.

    Seasoned gamers who are prepared to persevere will find it ultimately rewarding, however, as the stunning graphics and atmospheric sound makes it an engrossing experience.

    The bottom line is that great presentation and compelling gameplay will win this game many friends, although more 'serious' gamers may feel that games should be more original.

    It manages to be one of those rare simple-to-learn but hard-to-master games that, for the most part, end up becoming classics. Mario Golf deserves to join them. Despite the game being such fun to play, it's a bit of a shame that the courses stay soundly within the realms of the possible.

    The extra touches, although subtle, are akin to the brushstrokes in a Leonardo Da' Vinci masterpiece. The touches on their own seem insignificant, but look at ISS'98 as a complete package, and it is an experience that can only be described as religious.

    The level structure and overall design is top notch, resulting in a game which is fun and which instils the player with a feeling of progression.

    Despite the slight lack of originality and a couple of minor problems, Syphon Filter grabs you and doesn't let go.

    Fun, addictive, and presentation-wise it’s so glossy that you can’t help but admire its polished spingle-spangle sparkle, even if you don’t like tennis.

    The range of gameplay features is truly expansive beyond belief and one minute you may be charging around as a rhino, the next you may be riding in a slot car or mine cart or even a jet ski as part of the bonus games.

    May not be the perfect game everyone expects from Square, but I challenge any FF player to get into it and not get hooked.

    Giant leaps, wild turns, and the mix of realistic settings and fantasy side-shows makes these some of the best courses I've seen in awhile.

    All things considered, the engine is superb and it’s surprising the poor Playstation doesn’t start smoking from the vents.
