    Even three and a half years later, there hasn't been a more complete, entertaining, lovingly wrought platformer made for the GameCube.

    A challenging single-player, stupidly addictive multiplayer and a whopping great lifespan. [NGC]

    Devastatingly deep, each level a Russian doll of gameplay, the layers of which are gradually revealed as you obtain different types of Pikmin. [GamesMaster]
    • 93 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    It's one of the best looking games you'll ever have seen, it's fast, punchy, boasts simple, accessible controls - the Gamecube pad's never seemed quite so complementary to a beat-'em-up - and offers rich depths for those who go looking. [NGC]

    • 91 Critic Score
    This is a game that rewards care and attention by making you part of a brutally efficient machine. Other games give you a crusade, but SWAT 4 gives you the job itself - only without the hazard pay or sudden bullets to the face. [PC Gamer UK]

    • 91 Critic Score
    A brash, brilliant arcade game with real substance. It'll blow you away with its unrelenting pace and aggression. [GamesMaster]
    • 87 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    We've marvelled at the luscious visuals, wept at a tragic twist in the plot (true), slaughtered untold numbers of evil minions and after 60 hours of adventuring, still haven't tired of it. [GamesMaster]

    There's a hell of a lot to do and it often feels daunting - like a big cross between Sim City and Total War. But it's well worth having a go if you think you're man - sorry, god - enough. [GamesMaster]

    • 91 Critic Score
    On one side, beautiful graphics, superb notes, great handling and sexually arousing Group B driving. On the other, inconsistent obstacles, inauthentic modern cars, a confused brand and a small evolutionary step means that, to many, it quivers towards Yet Another Rally Game. [PC Gamer UK]
    • 86 Metascore

    Hugely immersive, frenetic, intelligent carnage but it's not a big single-player experience. Warhammer finally has a great videogame... For those who aren't interested in tin soldiers - you'd be nuts to miss the finest sci-fi RTS to hit the PC since "Total Annihilation." [PC Gamer UK]
    • 88 Metascore

    A return to form for one of PlayStation's elder statesmen - glorious visuals and tight fighting make this essential. It'll be Tekken over your life in no time. [PSM]

    • 91 Critic Score
    This update has refreshed our love of the game, bringing a new physicality and violence to online shooters. CS:Source is essential. [PC Gamer UK]

    Not as perfect as Ico, but one of the most beautiful, heartbreaking and imaginative experiences on PS2 which deserves to be played by everyone who loves games. [PSM2]
    • 84 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    This is a must-have title on PSP. World Tour shows how to combine sporting simulation with easy arcade style and accessibility. The Roger Federer of tennis games. [PSM2]

    Barbarian Invasion is tweak-packed and jammed with choices, meaning that even expert Generals will be kept busy for ages. A must for fans of Rome Total War. [PC Gamer UK]
    • 77 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    These supermen are capable of feats ordinary Battlefield grunts could only dream of, wielding 12 new firearms and racing across eight huge new maps in 10 new vehicles. Them's a lot of numbers, but then this is definitely no ordinary game. [GamesMaster]

    • 91 Critic Score
    Despite average presentation and dire commentary, the ever-compelling Master League progression mode, training, unlockables and online play combine with moreish, realistic action to complete the winning line-up. PES just keeps getting better. [PC Gamer UK]
    • 91 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    Better than the original. [GamesMaster]
    • 85 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    A glimpse at the future of RPGs. A stunningly realised vision of everything that's good about story-driven swords and sorcer. [GamesMaster]
    • 87 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    The best thing about it is the sheer lunatic speed of it all. Stick on the bumper view, slam on the throttle and see the world at a crazy pace. [GamesMaster]

    This is one Monkey Island you won't want to escape from any time soon. [GamesMaster]

    • 91 Critic Score
    Packed to the rafters with ticklish problem-solving, as you have to complete your goals and collect bananas. [GamesMaster Magazine]
    • 80 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    A delicious blend of pleasure and pain. Everyone should own a copy of this (and practise lots as well). [NGC]
    • 79 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    A magical experience you're never likely to forget, and the best game in a series that's never been less than excellent. An essential Cube buy. [NGC]
    • 85 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    As good a turn-based strategy game as you could hope to expect, with a cracking story. [GamesMaster]
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The clincher that transforms Homeworld 2 from a good game into a great one is the depth of detail. Every battle is an epic worthy of Lucas' early days; every backdrop a mind-blowing kaleidoscope of nebulae which constantly rams home the very vastness of space. [PC Gamer UK]
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Mindbogglingly huge and engaging, this is one of the great space games of all time... A classic. [PC Gamer UK]
    • 90 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The best comic book game ever, but a bit too structured. [PC Format]
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The best Age game yet, featuring frightening fantasy units without all the bearded baggage. [PC Gamer UK]
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Immersive, dramatic, exciting, detailed, never dull, challenging, extremely good looking and worth hooking up to broadband for. [PSM2]
