    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.

    ‘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.

    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 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.

    Innovation is Skate’s key, despite not having every trick and a few minor graphic issues. What Skate brings to the genre is a totally different perspective and it pulls it off incredibly.

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

    The combination of puzzler and platformer makes Raskulls one of the more unique games to hit the marketplace since this summer.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    This is probably one of the best XBLA releases yet and at half the retail price of what the DS/PSP version launched at Puzzle Quest a must own for 360 owners.

    Atmosphere is great and engaging, gun battles are furious and highly cinematic at times and of course the whole squad element has been tweaked a little to be just that bit more intuitive for console owners.

    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.

    To truly master any fighter you need to be proficient with all characters. DOA 4 offers an enjoyable yet frustrating experience depending on your levels of skill and patience.

    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.

    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.

    Perfect Dark Zero as a game is a great experience and although the single player storytelling is rather weak and non engaging, the game play of the missions is where the action flows and offers that engagement that we all look for.

    If you like puzzle adventures and want a break from the usual hack and slash or shoot "em ups, than this game is a must.

    The first ever true driving simulation to arrive on the Xbox console has achieved the highest standards in terms of graphics, sound, realism and playability.

    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.

    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.

    Multiplayer fans of all types will not be disappointed as over 20 maps (including some classics from the original) are supported across several game types including the all new retrieval and conquest modes.

    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.

    Ensemble have created something really special, they have managed to make a genre previously inaccessible to console audiences and turn it around into something that’s easy to play and heaps of fun.

    Put very simply, EndWar is a must buy for any console owner that has been waiting for a console war game done right.

    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.

    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.
