    Brutal, bloody and brilliant with a massive body count. Few can match its looks. [GamesMaster]

    Despite a few minor design issues, Neverwinter Nights is a flagship for the platfrom - a worthy successor to the BG series and a game no one should be embarrassed to hold in high regard. [Edge]

    The gripping story, the inventive mission design, the perfect pacing, the interesting races and the redolent atmosphere. [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]

    It's the most manic cartoon fun that you can have on your PC right now, and in a world full of ever bloodier FPSs and beardier strategy games, that's a breath of fresh air we should all be grateful for. [PC Gamer UK]

    Initially disappointing, but once you get how it's using the darkness it's very hard not to love Doom 3. Great-looking, scary and a delight to play - id have delivered again.

    A technical marvel that sets a new benchmark. The plot may twist until you lose grip of it altogether, but the balls-out street-driving action saves the day. [PSM2]
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A sublime evolution of a serious sports simulation that doesn't make life easy to start with but rewards you with depth, blood and belts. [Playstation 2 Max]

    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]

    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 gorgeous, character-packed curio that combines strategy and arcade action with great aplomb. An essential purchase for nostalgics. [PC Gamer UK]

    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]
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    As good a Mario adventure as you could hope for, and a cracking RPG in its own right. [GamesMaster]

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

    A real surprise - if you liked "Paper Mario" on N64 you'll love this. It's funny, enjoyable and capable of eating up hours on end. [GamesMaster]

    Small mistakes can't wreck such a consistently pleasurable experience as FFIV. With additional content that drastically increases the role of its large and likable cast, this is one RPG you'll have slotted into your GBA or DS for a long time coming.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    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.
    • 97 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    An experience not to miss...Halo evolves first person combat to new highs. But it doesn't do anything shockingly new. [Xgamer Magazine]
    • 87 Metascore

    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.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    From start to finish, it's a class act, and one that you'll obsess over for months to come. [XGamer]
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    An instant classic with the best multiplayer mode of any console title. [XGamer]
    • 93 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    To its very core, the game always goes for realism in a way that leaves "Metal Gear Solid" feeling extremely arcade like in comparison. [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.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    DOA Ultimate offers accessible gameplay and awesome eye candy. Throw in Xbox Live support and it easily becomes the only Xbox fighting game you actually need to own.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A joy to play, a social-life-threatening venture into the ever-appealing (and for once, original) world of virtual war, and a game bursting with strategic action the like of which is absent from 95% of online Xbox games. [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]
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Worth the wait? Hell yeah. It's another stunning RPG from BioWare that, while bringing little new to the genre, is an absolute joy to behold. [Xbox World]
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    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]
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Realistic missions and tactics plus a superb squad system make this a must-take tour of duty.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Xbox Live carnage on a profound scale - this is easily the best multiplayer game on the system since Bungie's opus. [Xbox World 360]
