    A romp to remember and a multiplayer taste to acquire and savour.

    A gorgeous and absorbing space combat sim, but one that takes time to get to grips with.

    A brief affair, a perfectly formed kinetic buzz. And, a long time after you've finished with it, you'll still hear the sounds. Repeat after us: Click. Thud. Buchhhhaaaaa.

    The unstoppably addictive bastard puzzle cousin of "Missile Command," Fantavision's perfectly presented and hypnotically beautiful
    • 81 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    An unconventional - hence invigorating - impetuous, inciting, and utterly, utterly playable first-person multiplaying affair.

    Madden NFL 2001 pushes the mighty "ISS Evolution" into a two-way fight to be the greatest sports game on any system. Ever.

    It does Sanrio Kittyness, it does scratched-up art weirdness, it does the Bust-A-Move house style, it does angled cartoon smoothness, it does colour, minimalism, random squiggles and it does it all with an enthusiasm that's so rare in all its rivals.

    Lost man-hours this week are a solid testament to this game's gripping compulsiveness. It's one of the most addictive PS2 games yet produced. Strange, but true.

    If you intend to play it properly, you'll discover that it's enormously complicated. Frighteningly so. And that's what makes it so good.

    Every second drips with absolute cool and there's literally not a boring moment in the entire game, bar the over-lengthy but disposable cut-scenes.

    If William Blake made a videogame, it would be this. If that isn't a recommendation, nothing is.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    One of the most rewarding and downright fun games on the PC. It's gripping, addictive and quick. What more could you ask?

    Adds nothing to the well-worn formula but wraps everything up in a glossy package which makes the previous outings look like primary school projects. This is classic Resi at it's finest.

    Yes, it doesn't add much that's new but -- oh, let progress be damned.... Love this game. It. Is. Fun.
    • 90 Metascore

    The biggest, deepest, most spectacular strategy game ever made.

    Combine full-on racing with a track design that should have "Wipeout's" makers hurrying back to the drawing board and then chuck in "Tony Hawk's" stupendously addictive tricks and you have PS2's finest moment to date.

    A fine racing sim, and a fantastic F1 title. Highly recommended indeed.

    Not the revolutionary title many had hoped, this is nonetheless as complete and professional a racer as you could wish for.

    Alternately frantic, considered and hilarious; utterly gorgeous throughout and outstandingly innovative. Absolutely essential.

    A stunning visual banquet, masterfully blending all the necessary ingredients for a cracking fantasy RPG. We're not likely to see many better PS2 titles this year.

    An essential, and long-lived, purchase. This is one shooter that you're going to want to savour.

    An essential purchase for anyone who's ever enjoyed being on the right end of a shotgun.

    The game play is absolutely superb, with well-balanced armies and some simply brilliant new units including a new building system more akin to the WarCraft series that allows for a more efficient unit production system.

    Near-perfect in every conceivable way, "Deus Ex" is pure gaming ambrosia. As in food of the gods, not tinned rice pudding.
    • 87 Metascore

    Now you're talking perfection... incredible graphics and first-person shooter action, with one of the best, most elaborately orchestrated videogame plots ever seen.

    The most important action game yet made for the PC. Well worth the long wait.

    Listen: Insane works. It works because it's multiplayer, it works because it's simple, and it works because it's fun. You'd do well to remember that, but you won't, because you're so desperate to replay the cliched gaming you've already experienced on your thousand-pound calculator. Stupid. All the best...

    Almost immediately after your first play you'll realise that underneath the cloak of controversy that will forever shadow GTA3 sits a truly special, groundbreaking and brilliant game. You'll love it.

    The introduction of the revert is a handy addition to you stunt arsenal, but it doesn't have the same game-changing effect that the manual had in number two. Which is good, as it adds an extra touch but doesn't meddle with a beautifully balanced control system.

    [Games Radar Rating = Direct Hit] AvP2 isn't a revolutionary game, but a collection of previously-seen elements, all put together seamlessly and balanced so well that it emerges as a rather beautiful Frankenstein's Monster.
