    The fluid movement of each class is wonderful including the rag doll effect when they have been shot, trampled over or blown up.

    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.

    With all of the added single player goodness of a Story Mode, Tournaments, Challenges, the new/classic game types, and the inclusion of Xbox Live play (which is a rule for Unreal) Unreal Championship 2 has the highest replay value of any 2005 release yet, and every minute, online or off, is just damn fun.

    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.

    Absolutely brilliant.

    Sega Sports went out of their way to lovingly craft an excellent piece of software, and at the price it just can't be beat.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    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.

    Battlefield 2 should be the benchmark for any future first person war shooter on the Xbox.

    I like San Andreas as it offers so much to mess around with on an unprecedented level.

    With solid visuals pushing the Xbox hardware, top-notch sound and voice acting driving the impressively deep story and an improved version of the rich game play we've come to know and love, Double Agent is easily a solid 9 out of 10, and a must own for any fan of the series.

    With over 20 new battlefronts on land and in space, this is a great sequel with a lot more added features improving the original tenfold.

    Minor (and understandable) technical complaints aside, this is a gem of an Xbox game.

    If it sounds hard to web swing into a wall run, grab a little girl's balloon as you jump off the wall to attack a thug, and yank another goon into the air with you as you drop, then you're beginning to understand how complex some of these move combinations can be.

    Dishwasher: Vampire Smile has more than enough content for its cost, absolutely amazing gameplay, and some impressive visuals. The plot is completely irrelevant to the experience, but it's certainly not bad. If players want a fast paced action game with a surprising amount of depth, Dishwasher 2 is certainly worth checking out.

    Outland is a well-done sidescrolling action game that integrates its bullet hell mechanics well. It brings a little something new to an old genre, giving it a bit of fresh life. When looking at a genre where it's so easy for companies to cut corners and make one just like any of the others, seeing a game that really goes the extra mile is a good sign and worth supporting. It might not have as much content as some may want, but it's still an worthwhile experience.

    I enjoyed playing the game and will continue to do so as it offers a simplistic approach to gaming that has worked for years.
    • 89 Metascore

    Although the game could probably be completed in a rental period on easier settings I have no doubts that this game is one title that many players will want to replay over and over.

    EA could have put in so much more to provide an ultimate boxing experience yet what they have offered is a bare bones fighter that simply looks good and plays well but after extensive play becomes rather underwhelming.

    Test Drive Unlimited offers a great racing/driving experience combined with a fantasy exotic lifestyle gamers can lead, something that hasn’t been done before as far as I can recall.
    • 82 Metascore

    Fun and exhilarating.

    Once you look beyond the mindless killing and embark on the other styles of play the game allows then you are left with something far more fulfilling.

    It’s well put together, there’s plenty of action, nice visuals but most importantly it’s fun to play. Marvel fans themselves will surely be pleased with the amount of content in the game.

    Call of Duty 3 is an immersive game, perhaps the single player is not quite as intense and well thought out as Call of Duty 2's was, but it is an excellent game in its own right.

    With driving fans having to pick between Forza 2 and this it’s really just a matter of preference even though Forza 2 has more fans, arcade style racers will feel more at home with DiRT.

    My only concern with SmackDown 2007 is that it feels aimed more at the hardcore SmackDown gamers and WWE fans.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The story element whilst interesting did feel very pantomime to me as a lot of hard talking was uttered during the cinematic moments and I often felt that these hard talking people would probably be better off bringing out shotguns and Uzis rather than taking to the streets to settle differences.

    Forza 2 isn't a flawless game by any means but does remain unparallelled as there is simply no other game that can offer the same level of depth and unprecedented attention to detail.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    This is the kind of game you can play once or maybe twice and maybe never come back to it, but the experience from playing the game is one to remember.

    FlatOut Ultimate Carnage is a fun filled, balls out adrenaline fuelled, challenging and addictive game which improves on its predecessors whilst remaining faithful to what made them so popular.

    E4 demands the player understand and embrace the symbiotic relationship between music, light and gameplay, if they wish to enjoy the title. For those players that reach this state of mind, E4 is probably one of the best experiential titles you can get in this genre.
