    Namco has created a capable fighter and dressed it in some especially uninspiring clothes. To put it plainly, Urban Reign appears to exist purely because it can. Despite its skill, no forward steps are taken or advancements made in the genre.

    An ‘original’ title based on previous games. Think of it as "Burnout 3+."

    An incredible amount of raw fun to play, remaining so similar to previous titles yet being so fundamentally different.

    They're all fun and all eventually devolve into button mashing murder, so is Dynasty Warriors 5 worth buying over Dynasty Warriors 4? No. Is the Xbox's version better than the PS2's? Not much.

    As a game it’s fairly average, but the presentation is top notch.

    What it boils down to is the fact that there are better racers and better puzzle games already on the PSP.

    The downsides don’t trash what is basically a fun and frantic experience that manages to combine realism on the ice with arcade action.

    It’s still above average and the multiplayer modes are worth investing time in if you’ve enjoyed them before.

    Unlike the innovative "Rainbow Six 3," Lockdown doesn't introduce a great deal new to the franchise aside from some miscellaneous aesthetic improvements.

    The pinnacle of the sub-genre and while not the "Forza" or "Gran Turismo 4" of biking, is currently about as good as it gets.

    It’s not like Ubi to release such a generic and obviously flawed game such as this, but it’s not unprecedented either and we can only hope this unfortunate blip is the worst that we’ll see for a while.

    The storyline, despite being written by former Hulk writer Paul Jenkins, isn’t particularly strong or well told, despite the fact that it’s more than faithful to the Hulk’s comic strip roots.

    Nintendogs is comparable to "The Sims" in the respect that it’s all quite engaging and entertaining at first, but then everything just becomes an aimless chore.

    It’s a nice game, but not an outstanding one. Try it with that in mind and you won’t be disappointed.

    It does manage to offer a good balance of tweaks as well as new content. If you never managed to make it through Sacred, then it has to be said, Underworld probably won’t be enough to rekindle your interest, while if you’re a hardcore fan then it should go without saying that this is a worthwhile purchase.

    Sonic CD is a title worth purchasing on pure merit, and whatever their standard, the sheer number of games on the disc make Gems an economical acquisition.

    Advent Rising is not unenjoyable, but it simply doesn’t make much of an impression, being overtly unoriginal and not nearly as ambitious in its gameplay as in its story.

    As great as it is to be sliding down a banister firing off both guns before holding out your blades to slice into two anyone unlucky enough to be standing near the bottom as you pass, the sloppy controls and quirks in the design do prevent BR2 from being anything more than a reasonably-decent third-person action-slasher.

    If VT's controls are too simple for you, then Top Spin is waiting in the wings to take your money.

    By bringing forward all the great aspects of its predecessor that worked so well before, giving them a change of scenery to warmer climes and adding in a few new choice features, Codename Panzers: Phase Two has managed to maintain the quality of the first instalment.

    Even with the game being relatively enjoyable and short enough to be replayed a few times, the lack of variety is unjustifiable. The Emperor’s thumb is most certainly down for this one.

    Nanostray is great fun to play. Unfortunately, the “nano” part of the title seems to be indicative of it having the lifespan of a gnat, and the gulf between the extremely easy (but great) Adventure mode and the overly-hard Challenge mode (which will put off all but the most ridiculously hardcore) is baffling.

    There is a lot of great stuff in Asheron’s Call, period. There is an enormous landmass populated with hidden dungeons, strange creatures and mysteries begging to be solved once more.

    We’re left with a fairly annoying RTS title full of niggling and frustrating bugs, poor design decisions, and pathfinding that has dripped directly from the nose of Satan himself.
