    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's an ungenerous expansion, but if you've not tried the original this is a slightly healthier option.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Hugely disappointing portable debut that replicates the basic look of Gran Tursimo but rips out its heart.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The old Advance Wars clone gets a remake, but somehow avoids getting a proper 21st-century makeover.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It may lack the scares of its big brother, but this proves an impressively progressive lightgun game.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It looks and plays just like the PS3 games, but alas this is just as pedestrian in terms of innovation.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Some may see it as dumbing down but for most this will be the most accessible and fun Ninja Gaiden yet.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Another perfectly crafted adventure that puts to shame most other retail games at five times its price.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Micro Machines remains to be beaten, but this top-down racer is still fun if you have enough friends.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's not a game for the ages but it is a reasonable introduction to real-time strategy for action fans.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Another obnoxious sequel that seems to have forgotten that the whole point of the game was its originality.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Bungie plays it safe with a side story that seems designed to expand little but Microsoft's wallet.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Capcom's latest attempt to please a hardcore audience tries, and fails, to be God Of War on the Wii.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The Turtle edition of Super Smash Bros. has the same ingredients but plays like week-old pizza.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A fantasy real-time strategy that ignores conventions as readily as its heroes ignore your commands.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One of the best console real-time strategies in a smaller, easily digested (or at least afforded) form.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Wet
    It wants to be an interactive grindhouse movie and it is: derivative, repetitive but mindless fun anyway.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The switch to turn-based strategy works perfectly but only fans will tolerate the endless cut scenes.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    In their panic EA has made a game which has no place in the current market. Neither arcade racer, nor simulation it also pales next to the well-established rivals which manage to be both.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A clear improvement on Heroes Of The Pacific, but IL-2 Sturmovik is still the superior fighter ace.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Activision somehow finds a way to dumb down what was already an absurdly shallow action role-player.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's a dazzling technical feat, the only problem is the actual game bits aren't all that much fun.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The best Mario role-player yet is sharply funny, surprisingly deep and endlessly inventive.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A dream come true for Beatles fans, but viewed purely as a game it's not a patch on Rock Band 2.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Arguably the last great Sonic The Hedgehog game, even if it's not necessarily one of the best.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Dazzlingly gorgeous 2D graphics cannot hide Vanillaware's merely competent beat 'em-up gameplay.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    You don't have to be a child to enjoy this new game from the makers of Hitman - just very undemanding.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The PC flight sim makes a near-perfect landing on consoles, with some of WWII's most exciting combat.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It may have little in common with the earlier McRae games but this is still a varied and exciting racer.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The best version of the worst Disgaea might be for fans only but it's still a great strategy role-player.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Konami forgets it's already made the ultimate Contra tribute - and it's not this bland rehash.
