    Think what you like about the exploding cows, obsession with poo and constant profanity, but this is witty with it, and there's not one point where you'll find the game's programmers being rude without a sense of humour.

    Not quite as blinding as the original but still a glaringly brilliant and consuming piece of first-person adventuring. [GamesMaster]

    A little short but you'll love every minute of it. Deserves a place alongside "Advance Wars" and "Yoshi's Island." [NGC]

    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.

    [from PC Gamer UK]: This is the most realistic AI yet seen in a first-person shooter: enemies are utterly convincing in the acquisition of intelligent cover, the picking up of fixed gun posts from dead comrades and in the decisions they make to hang back and throw grenades and intelligently split and circle rather than hide on the spot or just come running.

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

    The quality and individuality of presently pilotable planes and the extraordinary variety of AI airpower should satisfy all but the most hard-hearted hangar habitues.

    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.

    The best platformer on PS2? Possibly. Fun, beautiful to look at, challenging and rife with glorious detail? You bet your ass it is. An essential purchase. [PSM2]

    [Biohazzard] This is GC's real killer game. It's worth getting the console for and surpasses all that you could hope for from a remake.We crave the UK release like zombies crave brains. [GamesMaster Magazine]

    The best of the bunch yet. If you've never indulged in tactical espionage action before, you really have no excuse to let this pass you by. Absolutely vital. [PSM2]

    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]

    Stunningly fast chop-socky, sumptuous looks, scenery interaction to drop your jaw - a fight fan's dream. Plus you get to ogle those ladies and who can resist all that? Not us.

    One of the most rewarding and downright fun games on the PC. It's gripping, addictive and quick. What more could you ask?

    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.

    An incredibly addictive experience that will see you tying your fingers into great fangled knots of joy. Essential. [GamesMaster Magazine]

    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]

    Like a good book that you won't want to put down. Golden Sun is portable role-playing at its purest. Totally absorbing. [Advance]

    The graphics, albeit at a lower resolution (and with the occasional low frame rate) than the PC version, still make City 17 feel like a real place - not just a collection of videogame levels. [GamesMaster]

    If you are looking for something soft, slow and slightly soppy, there are few finer, moodier adventures around. [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]

    It's derivative, yet brilliant; intrinsically flawed, but fantastically playable.

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

    The balance between doing combos and pulling trick moves still isn't weighted enough in favour of the latter, so when things get tight it's tempting to go back to being dull. [PSM2]

    Believe the hype. The new Best Game Ever just rode into town, and it's going to be sticking around for a long time.

    Oozes the same rare quality of its predecessor, and every element of the game is superbly executed. [PSM2]

    With any high-speed sports game, the real bonus is in the game play and NHL 2001 oozes it.
