    So-so bonuses notwithstanding, there's just nothing else like this on the GameCube.

    Xbox Live carnage on a profound scale - this is easily the best multiplayer game on the system since Bungie's opus. [Xbox World 360]

    Mindbogglingly huge and engaging, this is one of the great space games of all time... A classic. [PC Gamer UK]

    From start to finish, it's a class act, and one that you'll obsess over for months to come. [XGamer]

    It's stupid, it's cliched and you can leave your brain at the door but, when you're having this much fun playing Total Overdose, can you really complain? [PSM2]

    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]

    Morrowind will please both serious role-playing fans as well as anyone looking for a technically stunning adventure that will hold their attention longer than your average hack-and-slash title. This is the good stuff.

    It won't be for everyone - but the melee combat brings something fresh to the genre and the online games are absolutely cracking. [Xbox World]

    But if you fancy a deep, serious game that represents a huge challenge - and aren't adverse to constantly studying a map and positioning your men before seeing any action - then this war hero is in a league of its own. [Xbox World]

    Few developers have the ability to craft a virtual world with the amount of depth and realism that SI deliver here. For football fans, there is no better place to lose yourself than Football Manager's deep, stat-filled realm. [PC Gamer UK]

    A well-made game that's better than most RPGs that we've seen released these past few years, and all of the new additions in this version only help make it even more awesome.

    Gun
    If there's a nit to pick with Gun, it's that it's short. Depending on how much you poke around, you can beat it in anywhere from six to ten hours. To us, that's no problem; we'll take a short amazing game over a long lackluster one any day.

    An enchanting adventure in Mario's familiar world, with excellent fighting and a brilliant script. [GamesMaster]
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The repetitive training mode and fiddly defence let it down a little but, if being the main protagonist in a civilised man's most uncivilised sport rocks your world, look no further: this is a supreme sequel. [Xbox World]
    • 93 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    In single player this is more an expansion than a whole new game, although fans will be happy. Online is what really steals the show. [GamesMaster]
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It all adds up to a breakneck racing experience that offers a lot of fun (especially when you consider the online modes) for a little cash.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    With the series' clever design and sense of humor fully restored, The Two Thrones is a stellar return to form for Prince of Persia.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The best Age game yet, featuring frightening fantasy units without all the bearded baggage. [PC Gamer UK]
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Realistic missions and tactics plus a superb squad system make this a must-take tour of duty.

    A gloriously realised futuristic Gauntlet-style playground where you can chat, trade, cooperate and do battle. Pure magic. [NGC]
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Brutal, bloody and brilliant with a massive body count. Few can match its looks. [GamesMaster]
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Monstrously tough and definitely not for part-timers. Ikaruga is demanding but ultimately rewarding. [GamesMaster]

    • 90 Critic Score
    The graphics and animation are consistently brilliant. There are some gorgeous environments to explore, a superbly adapted control system for GBA. [GamesMaster Magazine]

    This complexity demands your total concentration, resulting in an all-consuming gaming experience. You're gonna lose hours to this game.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Not quite as blinding as the original but still a glaringly brilliant and consuming piece of first-person adventuring. [GamesMaster]

    Perimeter blows most traditional RTS games out of the water. There are so many unexpected options for attack, more ways to defend, more ideas to experiment with than you'd think possible. It's an enormous, gloopy toolkit of war. And we love it. [PC Gamer UK]

    A leaner, more vicious Tekken for a competitive age - surprising how much two new characters add to an already classy game. [Import, PSM2]
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    An instant classic with the best multiplayer mode of any console title. [XGamer]
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Loading screens can stall the action on Xbox and especially PlayStation 2, and there are some rough platform encounters late in the game, but Psychonauts is still easily one of the best titles of this, or any other, year.

    Every second of this game screams skillful design and the result is a liberating game world that feels open and responsive. Nearly every object in the game reacts to Lara's influence, and this applies to the gamer holding the control pad as well - it's impossible to play this game and not fall under its tempting spell.
