    Ninja Gaiden 2 is a lot more accessible than its predecessors, although is still going to be a little too hard and vague in places for newcomers.

    If you like tactical shooters then this game is most certainly a must buy. If you are new to Rainbow games, then this is as good place to start as any as knowledge of the first game isn't essential for the experience.

    Pure is sheer unadulterated fun. The game offers breathtaking graphics and addictive gameplay, combined with a decent set of single and multiplayer modes.

    For those of you with FIFA 08, this is well worth a look simply because of the refreshing new modes and roster of teams/players available.

    Fight Night Round 4 continues the wonders of the previous game, while adding more depth to your boxing experience.

    For all Fallout 3’s ideas, innovations, and excellent hybrid of game genres, it’s not without its flaws.

    Viva Pinata was a great game with an interesting and addicting gameplay direction, but Trouble in Paradise is a great reinvention of this title, not quite a complete sequel, but Rare proves to us that there is still a lot of life in this to experience and cater for.

    Most sports games are released every year, and you can usually expect just a few minor changes from the previous installment. NHL 09 has broken that trend and introduced many new features and tweaked existing elements to create a game far superior than last year's version.

    Making things better is the fact that they are compatible with Rock Band, as well, which goes a long, long way in justifying the price tag if you want to make the most of your money.

    Any fan of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, is probably going to want to add Call of Duty: World at War to their collection.

    Braid is to date the best overall game I’ve played from the Xbox Live Arcade. I say this not only because the puzzles are fresh and creative, but the story has a meaning that actually invokes emotions the way a good book or movie can.

    If you're after a solid and well respected 3D hand to hand fighter that is every bit as good offline as it is online then this is well worth the investment.

    Bayonetta is a solid action game that is filled with dark humour, sex appeal, silliness, plenty of action and enough cinematic quality to keep you well entertained even when you're not slicing up demon butt.

    This game really does pay homage to Metallica and this is a game fans definitely need to purchase.

    Bottom line, Battlefield Bad Company 2 is a “must buy” title for any self respecting lover of the FPS genre and will provide gamers with hundreds if not thousands of hours of value.

    Avalanche has created a title that takes sandbox play back to its roots -- the idea that sandbox should mean just that, a sandbox for players to do anything they want, to create their own goals and to essentially create a game within a game by creating and then achieving player driven goals.

    This is one sequel certainly worthy of a purchase, and no doubt a contender even for game of the year.

    It’s good. It’s really good. Fans of the NHL games will not be disappointed and newcomers to the series will find one of the deepest, enjoyable, and most engaging hockey game EA has ever put out to date.

    DJ Hero is a breath of fresh air in the music game genre and we really feel FreeStyleGames has done a great job.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    There really is something for everyone here, and with the game's more laid back approach is less daunting for the inexperienced and more rewarding for the pros.

    There's eye candy galore for one, and more importantly the gameplay, exploration and levelling-up will keep you coming back for more.

    Bungie have done a grand job in expanding the Halo universe here and although the story aspect might not be as rigid as previous games, the execution and presentation is second to none and has been well thought out to capture your imaginations even if you don't immediately gel with the players on the stage as readily.

    The co-operative and multiplayer experience of Left 4 Dead 2 is much like that of the original, but with some intriguing new modes of play.

    All we can say is WOW; how ever did Yuke’s and THQ manage to squeeze so much into a title with just under a year of development time? Other developers should definitely take notice; just because there isn’t another top notch game in the same genre, doesn’t mean that you can’t push the envelope.

    The single and multi player experience are superb allowing total novices through to experts to play along and still enjoy the music and in my own honest opinion, that is what makes a game count!

    It might lack the precision of a mouse and the scope of content that the PC wields proudly, and it’s still not the best looking game of the two versions comparatively, however, if you instead put it against real time strategy games on the same system, this game is arguably one of the better – if not the best – strategy games to come to console in terms of content, accessibility, and overall quality at being an ‘old school’ RTS game.

    FIFA 10 is untouchable for its gameplay, presentation, audio and feature set and although there is still room for improvement, there is no doubt in my mind that EA Sports have again created a spectacular addition to the long running series.

    ‘Splosion Man has personality and humor to spare, and it’s easily one of the most polished side-scrollers you’ll ever have to pleasure of playing.

    A classic game and well worthy of the Final Fantasy moniker.

    UFC Undisputed 2010 is pound for pound the real deal in virtual MMA.
