    Seeing the ducks from "Duck Hunt" or the 2 dimensional Ice-climbers (also featured as playable characters) will have you praising Nintendo for their kindness in bringing back some long forgotten gaming moments.

    The implementation of the control system is masterful, with the emphasis being on ease of use and fluid issuing of commands.

    This is the perfect game to really see who has the patience and stamina to go all the way.

    Nicely presented (and there are no load times at all), it's packed with pure playability and has enough 'whimsical' substance to last just as long as the others. Fans of the previous games will relish the new challenges on offer, and anyone new to the series will no doubt have a whale of a time in multiplayer alone.

    It features playability by the bucket full, a superb main character and some of the most amazing graphical effects seen on any next generation system so far. It pulls you towards it like a moth to a flame and just like a doomed insect you can do nothing but succumb to it.

    There is enough on offer in single-player to keep you busy for weeks, and the lifespan is stretched even further thanks to the Time Trial mode.
    • 87 Metascore

    The levels are so much more diverse, so much more rich, solid, 3 dimensional even, than in the first - the levels just move so much more.
    • 85 Metascore

    There's not much here to renew interest for old fans (save the most dedicated), but for everyone else prepare to be amazed - Solid Snake is back!

    Voice acting throughout is superb, and again really gives the whole game an impressive cinematic feel.

    Brilliant. It's hugely playable, graphically sublime and even more importantly, once again Treasure have raised the bar for top-down shooters.
    • 93 Metascore

    Put in enough time and you will find you are able to block, sidestep, counter, throw and special move your way to an impressive amount of “perfects”, without ever reaching the ridiculous heights of some games whereby a newcomer has no chance whatsoever.

    If one game could attract the masses, then the satisfaction and stimulation gathered from communicating is the shining example. Gamestyle expectantly awaits the next release from Yoot Saito and his Vivarium team.

    Shift 2: Unleashed is a must own for anyone who loves racing. The feeling of racing is perfectly recreated here and the love for the sport that Slightly Mad Studios have oozes out all over the game.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    What you do have here though is a game that doesn't hide what it is. It is pure unadulterated violence and it makes sure you are having fun with it, you come out the other end covered in blood and loving the feeling.

    Bastion is a wonderful way to kick off the Summer Of Arcade and one that will be very hard to match from the other four titles. A mix of wonderful art, sumptuous sounds and deep involving gameplay make this one of the best XBLA games of the year.

    For 1200msp you get an engaging adventure that is lovingly-crafted, full of charm and invention from the very start. There are a few frustrations, but rarely does Insanely feel unbalanced or unforgiving.

    Toy Soldiers: Cold War is without doubt one of the best games you can purchase on XBL and is a truly great sequel to what was a fantastic game

    Casual fans may not need to pick this up over NHL 11, but hockey fans will want to get this, just for the engine improvements alone.

    If you are looking for a racer with an edge then Sky Drift is a definite must have purchase for any fan of the genre.

    It has been thirteen years in the making, but Driver has the sequel it always deserved, aside from a restrictive progression model, there is nothing but pure driving and gaming bliss. Even the shifting gimmick works in such a way it adds to the experience rather than hampering it. It is great to be back behind the wheel and back in the directors chair.

    So, another year, another FIFA. It has become a cornerstone in the gaming market over the years, and with good reason. FIFA 12 is the nearest a football title has ever come to emulating the real life match day experience.

    Had The Gunstringer been released as a full priced title with none of the added bonuses, then there would reason to complain, but released at a low price point and packed to the rafters with bonus content and a forgiving aiming system that doesn't want to punish the player. This is one Kinect game that should be in every Kinect owners collection.

    If you are looking for a game with plenty of hours game-play, great story progressing content and gorgeous to the eye then look no further than this. The measly price you pay is worth every second you play of the game, even the times where the game is driving you insane from trying to figure out where and what to do next.

    There is no challenge for most, but it cannot be looked at from an adult's point of view. A developing mind will jump in with both feet and get an amazing experience from start to finish, then over and over and over again. Imagine their favourite film that is always in the DVD player, it will be the same with this game. There is something about the charm on Elmo and friends and it transfers to gaming perfectly.

    Modern Warfare 3 is the best package of it's kind on consoles and instead of going stale it continues to impress.

    For 800 MS Points there are few better Xbox Arcade releases out there; make it your own mission to the stars.

    When it's all said and done, Assassin's Creed: Revelations is an entrancing game, with breathtaking visuals and a pulsating story that keeps the player glued to their seat

    All in all, this makes for a very entertaining game that will provide hours of enjoying, for people of all ages.

    On the surface Saint Row: The Third is another open world GTA clone, but scratch that surface and you are introduced to a game that does everything it can not to take itself seriously and is the perfect partner to the more straight faced games that are out there

    LEGO Harry Potter: Year 5-7 is one of the best co-op experiences that you will have all year, matched only by the co-op levels in Portal 2. It is more of the same, but sometimes more of the same is just what is needed.
