    What we’re let down by is a clunky, cumbersome control system, unforgiving save system and at times some flaky A.I. Now that it’s been re-released on the MAD label, I reckon it’s definitely worth the money, particularly if you’re a fan of this niche genre.

    Timing is a very definite requirement of play, perhaps more so than who's got the biggest strike and without practice you'll almost certainly have no idea why what happened just did.

    Nostalgia is simply oozing out of the box and with the information sheets and pamphlets included on each game the retro gamer should be in heaven.

    Nexus: The Jupiter Incident isn't for everybody, since there is just that "little something' missing that would have made this a GREAT game, but so long as you have the system specs to do the game justice it's certainly one for the Space-Based Strategy fan.

    FIFA 06 does deserve a purchase but it simply doesn’t offer up anywhere near enough improvements for owners of "FIFA 2005" to part with cash this year.

    Blitzkrieg II is looking in fine form to lengthen CDV’s reign as World War II real time kings, and if only the pesky problem of units staying where you want them could be solved this would be an essential buy for every armchair strategist.

    On the other hand you sure are getting a large slice of action for what tends to be a very moderate price tag and there is a place for a good hand to hand combat affair in everybody’s collection.

    It's pretty much what you'd expect from a trip to see this kind of fare at your local Odeon – lots of noise, lots of effects, dialogue kept to a minimum – it's a real rollercoaster of a ride (damn, that's a cliché if ever I wrote one.)

    Where First to Fight really excels is in the multiplayer department.

    The real reason to get the wallet out and evict those moths is the co-op, still the best part of the H&D series and perhaps the best squad-based multiplayer title out there.

    The graphics might alarm the purist but they’re big, bold and lurid, just the kind of thing for the eight year old in the house.

    Although frustration is certainly high at times it’ll be a foolish person who totally disregards Full Spectrum Warrior's potential and it pains me not to lavish untold awards onto the title but at times the game just appears flawed.

    An excellent game, a little harder to get into than most FPS due to the amount of options and the fact that half of takes place in the air, but, more rewarding because of that. Once you have mastered flying around its heaps of fun.

    Then again, its meant to be a fun racing game not a literary masterpiece so in that respect Street Racing Syndicate does succeed admirably.

    If ‘old school’ to you means the class of Eton 2003 then this is not your thing, if on the other hand you’re a graduate of the early nineties arcades then it’s a welcome return for some streetwise gaming.

    Something different for the PS2 collection in that it’s a well executed platform game with a lot of varied gameplay.

    It’s genuinely funny without ever bordering on tacky and it really does test anyone who plays it.

    Heritage of Kings isn’t a bad game, although it doesn’t offer a whole lot more then other resource driven real time strategies that are available.

    The game is a joy to play. The puzzles are clever and just hard enough to be interesting and rewarding to solve.

    One area that we felt could have been improved was in the animations, they are done well enough when just walking around (and there are plenty of other Doctors, patients etc walking around doing their thing) the problem was when you walk in to somebody or two or more characters are trying to get to the same place.

    It’s a shame as there is a really good adaptation of the adamantium infused one’s story here and a little more of that X factor could have elevated Hyakkimaru into the ranks of legend.

    The Sacred Underworld expansion is the natural progression for any Sacred fans still playing the original release. With the Underworld expansion installed, Ancaria is now officially 40% bigger with even more to see and do, it doesn’t quite forward the game much but it does offer a diversion until Sacred 2 hits the shelves.

    One of the most intense first person shooters to be released this year.

    Shrek will certainly appeal to the target audience but anyone else will find the gameplay far too constraining.

    Despite some noticeable flaws, the Xbox 360 version of Legacy manages to capture the epic feel of Star Trek combat like no other game to date.

    It’s not too far into the micromanagement side of city construction to make it too difficult to get into and play the game and difficult enough to make the game last.

    It’s like the strafe along the fuselage that still allows the pilot to limp home. I think the finger must point at the content rather than the execution.

    Over-all while there are better FPS titles now available with Call of Duty 4 and others setting the grade, there is a place for TimeShift in the grouping.

    Don’t get us wrong it’s still highly playable but it’s not vastly different enough to warrant another purchase if you already own Most Wanted.
