    With over 40 characters taken from the Marvel comics and Capcom's past games, there's no shortage of variation either.

    The unstoppably addictive bastard puzzle cousin of "Missile Command," Fantavision's perfectly presented and hypnotically beautiful
    • 84 Metascore

    The characters actually have... well... character. We know their history, their allegiances, their grudges, and even the colour of their panties in certain circumstances.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Yes, it doesn't add much that's new but -- oh, let progress be damned.... Love this game. It. Is. Fun.

    What saves "The Sims" from becoming an unmanageable and nightmarish mess is the incredibly intuitive and easy to use interface.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    A romp to remember and a multiplayer taste to acquire and savour.
    • 84 Metascore

    Play it loud, on a big-assed TV, until you've mastered every character, your girlfriend's left you and the bank has repossessed the goldfish.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Now you're talking perfection... incredible graphics and first-person shooter action, with one of the best, most elaborately orchestrated videogame plots ever seen.

    A gorgeous and absorbing space combat sim, but one that takes time to get to grips with.
    • 97 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    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.
    • 91 Metascore

    But don't take it that lightly: it's cute good- looks and sense of humour don't detract at all from what is an exquisitely crafted game of tennis.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Alternately frantic, considered and hilarious; utterly gorgeous throughout and outstandingly innovative. Absolutely essential.
    • 97 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    More game play, more parks, more sounds and more options than you can shake a stick at - Tony Hawk's just got better.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    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.
    • 94 Metascore

    If you own a Dreamcast, you really would be an unadulterated fool not to purchase this game. For JSR, quite simply, rocks.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    A fantastically comprehensive and playable wrestling sim - if it's actually possible to simulate something that isn't 'real' in the first place.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    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.

    It's the perfect way of working out if your flatmate's a robot - only a heartless cyborg assassin wouldn't love these fluffy little pups - but it's not for those that are easily bored of endless, patient training and failure. [NGC Pocket]
    • 93 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    What does make it great is that it actually delivers on nearly everything it promises while still being fun to just pick up and play.

    Ultimately, Chaos Theory leaves the player stunned, excited and thoroughly satisfied. A landmark achievement in stealth gaming. [Xbox World]
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    The biggest, deepest, most spectacular strategy game ever made.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It's SSX's cooler, meaner, smarter brother - and still the most exhilarating game on PS2.

    • 95 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Constantly surprising, always delightful, never less than utterly stunning, this journey through the looking glass into a new and perfectly formed world is escapism of the very highest order.

    It's safe to say that UFC is bloody hard, in all senses of the word.
    • 97 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    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.

    Bizarre Creations haven't done much but develop Metropolis Street Racer, mapping out San Francisco, Tokyo and London in fantastic detail for what I can safely say is the best racing game that I've ever played.

    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.

    Being too uncoordinated to dare attempt one of those arcade dancing machines, it's the first game we've played that has actually made us feel light-headed. It's also exactly what DS needed after the disappointing absence of a genuine must-have title among the US launch releases. Virtually perfect. [NGC]

    Touch! Kirby has replay value, it uses the touch and double screens brilliantly, it constantly plays with its own elegant control scheme, and, as the icing on the cake, is not only impeccably presented throughout (the backgrounds and soundtrack are truly magnificent) but it also comes with a nice pink stylus. You can't argue with that. [NGC Pocket]

    Ignore Harvest Moon and you'll be ignoring one of the cutest and most original RPGs you're ever likely to see. It ought to be on everyone's 'must play' list.
