    As someone who was never a great fan of Uncharted or Jak and Daxter, I am genuinely amazed at how much I liked this game. If this isn't art, then I don't know what is. [Aug 2013, p.59]

    It is a triumph of artistry, technology and design. It isn’t perfect, but nothing this ambitious ever is. [Issue#235]

    True, it can be exasperating and tedious, but it can also be touching and insightful and supremely gratifying. [March 2013, p.78]

    Thematically, the end of Mass Effect 3 and the conclusion of Shepard's story is pitch-perfect. But upon closer inspection after the fact, the manner in which you arrive at your fate - through bare number crunching and a tenuous causal link between war assets - fails to convince. [May 2012, p.55]

    Threes is the sort of game that exists purely to ruin your life, to make you regret ever buying your damn smart phone. [May 2014, p.83]

    Ignore Casual mode, set the difficulty to hard, and enjoy what is arguably the best turn-based strategy game released since Final Fantasy Tactics. [July 2013, p.76]

    Clever, emotive, and easily the best downloadable game so far this year. [June 2012, p.58]

    Device 6 positions itself outside the box, looks back inside, and laughs heartily. [Jan 2014, p.81]

    An excellent update that revitalises Human Revolution in a number of ways. Time to play it again. [Jan 2014, p.78]

    Fantastic value for money, but not actually a great racer. [Nov 2013, p.79]

    Worth it for the first few hours of hopeless addiction, the satisfaction of encountering new creatures, and the enticing allure of testing out all the new equipment. [June 2013, p.84]

    The same game we loved last year, but portable, without multiplayer, and with significantly worse graphics. [Sept 2013, p.85]

    One of the best platformers we've played in a hell of a long time with a mix of traditional design and clever reinvention. [Nov 2013, p.76]

    An expertly-crafted love letter to stealth gaming, and so far one of the year's best titles. [Nov 2012, p.73]

    Subscription MMOs are dead. Guild Wars 2's size is incredible and its strong focus on exploration and community creates a bubbling liveliness. However, if you're looking for true innovation you will be left wanting. [Nov 2012, p.70]

    The fluidity and speed of FIFA makes it pure joy to play, an area where it reigns supreme over its rival Pro Evo.

    Amazing tactical complexity, satisfying strategic depth; slightly dodgy ending, but your own stories are more important anyway. A modern classic.
