    Rockstar chose to cut off some of the features from the previous games, offering instead a much richer and cohesive world, with an amazing plot and even better cast. Superb in every aspect, GTA IV is an essential experience that justifies as no other its expensive price. [June 2008]

    It’s probably closer to perfection than most of the games that we’ve played this year. You just can’t miss an experience that’s pure fun and can put a smile on your face from start to finish. Buy it, borrow it... just play it. [Dec 2007]

    An excellent mix between FPS, RPG and adventure, Bioshock challenges conventions to bring us a game where the choices available to the player are the focus of its innovative and creative gameplay. It’s not a perfect game, but it’s without a doubt an unforgettable experience. The main candidate to the GOTY award rests its case. [Sept 2007, p.59]

    Even if you forget the fact that you have five games in one box, it’s the quality here that’s impressive. One of the best FPS ever, a little slice of pure genius and a multiplayer classic renewed. [Nov 2007]

    LBP is a unique game. It disguises itself as a 2D platform game but surprises the players with a set of editing tools and level sharing absolutely amazing. With a distinctive style and an everlasting future potential, we can say that Sackboy already conquered this industry. [Oct 2008]

    The best and most complete portable adventure ever. Even if you’re not a fan of the series, you should feel compelled to play it and recognize it as a masterpiece. [Nov 2007]

    Metal Gear Solid 4 is a work of passion by Hideo Kojima. Often touching the line between genius and madness, he manages to build a truly epic ending to one of the most essential series in videogames history. Improving most of the elements from the previous titles, MGS 4 is a unique piece by its conception and nature, which rightly deserves the love of fans and the respect of all players. [June 2008]

    It’s not Melee 2...it’s something even better. Hundreds of extras, dozens of characters and an incredible multiplayer makes for the strongest candidate to game of the year for the Wii. Even if it doesn’t appeal to all of the casual audience, it’s a mandatory title for the console. We strongly recommend it. What else can we say? [Aug 2008]

    The natural evolution of Infinity Ward’s franchise is the best action game of the year, thanks to all the tension and cinematic feel of the single player campaign, alongside one of the most addictive multiplayer experiences on consoles. Highly recommended, even if you’re not an FPS fan. [Dec 2007]

    The trilogy ends with a title that doesn’t bring anything really new regarding the solo campaign, but maintains the fun and appealing gameplay that this series is known for. In the end, it’s on the multiplayer front that Halo 3 shines the most, with an overwhelming number of options and exemplary support by Bungie. [Oct 2007, p.55]

    The excellent control system is not the only virtue of Retro Studios. The brilliant level design and the absence of any technical flaw makes Metroid Prime 3 a Wii masterpiece. [Nov 2007]

    Those who expect to find the new "Knights of the Old Republic" might be a little disappointed. The story lacks some real depth – once again it’s the old 'save the galaxy' cliché – but it might gain another dimension once the trilogy unfolds. But it’s still a fabulous RPG, one that any fan of the genre can’t possibly miss. [Dec 2007]

    The best PS3 exclusive to date. While it lasts, it’s one of the best action/adventure games of recent times. Lara Croft will have to sweat a lot on her next adventure to make Nathan Drake go away. [Nov 2007]

    It’s not a revolution, but everything it does, it does really well. Once again, a brilliant product of Insomniac’s imagination. [Nov 2007]

    The usual audience will be captivated by its story, that’s complemented with some great real time strategy mechanics. Just trying to unlock all of the elemental Espers will make you addicted. [Apr 2008]

    Technically impressive, Dead Space can be described as a mix of "Resident Evil 4" with films like "Event Horizon" and "Aliens". If you have the age and the stomach to get trhough it’s violent and morbid content, you’ll enjoy one of the best horror games available. [Oct 2008]

    Still terribly fun with its competitive online modes and a great use of the Wii Wheel. And at the end of the day, it presents the traditional polished and shiny look of all of Nintendo’s big guns that we simply love. [May 2008]

    If all of Nintendo's efforts to reinvent the interaction with player produce such great results as Wii Fit, they are more than welcome. You can say that this a new kind of social game that will bring you closer to friends but, above all, motivate you to healthy habits and burn those "extra" pound that have been bothering you for a while.

    Square Enix proves that J-RPG doesn’t have to stick with a pre-formatted formula, offering a modern environment, a combat mechanic free of random encounters, and a adjustable difficulty that maintains the challenge to the player. Essential to all DS owners. [June 2008]

    Here is the best football simulator available in the market. It presents the emotion and tactical elements of football like no other, maintaining a connection with real world trough the Live Season. The online mode 10 vs 10 is a milestone in the genre. [Oct 2008]

    It has all the ambitions and potential worthy of a true next-gen title, from its visuals to the freedom it offers to the player, although it falls victim of its own limitations. But this title still has the flavour of something quite innovative. [Dec 2007]

    The combats are great but it’s not an easy experience because it requires a huge dedication from the player to level up his party and to manage inventory and skills. [Nov 2007]

    Makes use of the pretty interesting technology from the PS Eye. Although it’s essentially a multiplayer experience, it stands out as the most different game in PS3 Xmas catalogue. [Nov 2007]

    With many details about the FF VII group being revealed, the huge amount of cinematics transform Crisis Core in a kind of interactive movie, thus constraining the exploration and combat phases. It could be perfect, but it keeps itself as “just” an excellent game. [June 2008]
