    The interactive 3rd person feature and the well executed 'toy soldiers' setting really propels this title forward to the top spots of Xbox Live Arcade gaming.

    Capcom have done wonders with keeping the elements that made RE what they are, but also moving it forwards just enough to remain fresh.

    Staying true to its origins Puzzle Quest 2 delivers the addicting gameplay of two genres and makes some wonderful changes to be considered more than just a sequel.

    Harry Potter is a fantastic game to play for both kids and adults. Traveller's Tales took the risk of going in another direction with this and have made a little gem of a game.

    This game maybe shrouded with uncertainty, but what is for sure is that it's an arcade game worth bending over backwards for at the very least to experience the workings of its aesthetic genius.

    The map pack is very much a welcome addition to the package with each map being well thought out and different from what's already available to make the purchase worthwhile

    A cracking game and at the end of the day is extremely fun and rewarding which is what counts. It doesn’t take itself too seriously, what with all the sexual orientated gags and the stereotypical look at gangster life.

    It seems a bit odd still that this is an XBLA title, though for 400 Microsoft points, Achievements and a prequel to the sequel, this is most certainly worth the extra change and will provide countless hours of entertainment in zombie slaying and re-playability.

    Dead Rising was an enjoyable experience, full of the undead, a bit of cheese, and a likeable yet somewhat flat protagonist in Frank West. DR 2 ups the ante to provide similar thrills, but overall feels like a much more fuller game.

    While Lords of Shadow breathes new life into the Castlevania franchise, it still has its moments of gaming nostalgia, all the while delivering an experience that is not to be missed.

    In closing, I had no doubt that 2K11 was going to deliver, but this year's edition has taken it to a whole new level, and actually had me surprised at times.

    Crammed full of features, diverse gameplay, energetic combat and the basic stealth/action the series is renowned for and you have a killer of a game for fans and newcomers alike.

    Treyarch have done a fine job with Black Ops. Not only does the game retain its Call of Duty aesthetic appeal, and pushes all of the series strengths seemingly as far as they can go, but now other aspects of the game are also to this high standard.

    All in all, Rock Band 3 represents the pinnacle of the music game genre to this point.

    The combination of puzzler and platformer makes Raskulls one of the more unique games to hit the marketplace since this summer.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The visceral combat, the varied locales, the tense moments and entertaining story are worth the price of entry alone, and with added multiplayer for those who must share the experience, make this game a more well rounded product. Highly recommended and another classic game to add to the collection.

    So, if you like fighting games and are looking for something new then by all means get this. If not, then rent it first and see if the lure of Ryu versus Spider-Man in glorious 3D for ever more is enough to suck you right in for the purchase when it's time to give it back to the store.

    If you're looking for a game with a personality all its own and don't mind spending a few extra Microsoft points, Stacking will stack up remarkably well against other competition.

    It isn't often that you can compare videogames with wine by saying they get better with age, but in this circumstance it works. The unique blend of gameplay mechanics make Beyond Good and Evil a game unlike anything available for the 360 today.

    Most fans of this series will not hold back at pushing the purchase button to grab this DLC, and they will not be disappointed. Ubisoft has seemed to do it again with more masterful story telling, even in this small helping. The Da Vinci Disappearance will once again pull players into the robes of Ezio, and it is a return trip well worth it.

    If you missed out on Fight Night Round 4, then EA's latest release with Champion is most certainly the heavyweight contender in the battle for your Xbox 360 disc tray. If you're after more of the same with the Legacy mode, and want some new talent to compete with online, then Champion will no doubt prove a worthy purchase, though if it's purely the entertaining, yet short-lived Champion mode that is of interest for you, then a rental is perhaps best advised.

    With deep character customization and addicting gameplay, Torchlight becomes easily worth the 1200 Microsoft Point price tag.

    Crysis 2 delivers some impressive gameplay moments, offering frantic shoot-outs aplenty against human and non human foes, energetic stealth elements amidst the slower paced sneaking making for a comprehensive melting pot of styles which can be utilized at any time during play.

    Whilst not offering the same level of depth to characters or story as in "Knights of the Old Republic," Fable offers a much more experimentation and rewarding free form game play with a silent yet loveable lead character as a representation of yourself.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The changes that have been made are the best compromise for a multi platform release but I can't help wishing it was as in-depth statistics wise as the first game.
    • 88 Metascore

    The puzzle element is intriguing the way it has been implemented into the game and the general all out wackiness of the characters and story surely sets it apart from its peers.
    • 88 Metascore

    Whilst the game play isn't as complex as other first person shooters as it's simply a case of kill or be killed in the mindless sense (but would you have it any other way), the fact remains that Doom 3 is an engaging, scary and highly entertaining title.
    • 82 Metascore

    A breath of fresh air when it comes to stealth games.

    The movement feels realistic as you plod along in your heavy machine, building up speed and even fall over when you try to turn too quickly or encounter undulating ground. The physics are as realistic as you could possibly imagine and one wonders why no government has actually made one.

    Far Cry offers an extensive single player that begs to be played more than once despite not having a difficulty select from the offset. The game is as tough or as easy as you make it depending on how you decide to play.
