    CMR 2005 may not be as visually impressive as the Rallisport titles but it does deliver in terms of gameplay the most playable and fun authentic rally experience of any of the available rally titles.

    This years FIFA has been improved so much over last years version that you will be instantly impressed.

    This is the best boxing game on any system ever. It is not perfect and has not got the options and scenarios of the "Tiger Woods" series has for golfing, but as a stand-alone game it is very good.

    A great racing title that offers a different playing experience compared to the four wheeled variety which most gamers are probably used to.

    This psychological thriller will keep players hooked from start to finish as it has that "I must find out what happens next" feel to it.

    This is truly a benchmark game for all future comic adaptations. The slick comic style is superb with a fantastic storyline making this game a must-buy/rent for any Spiderman fans.

    Smooth graphics, smooth control, great sound and plenty of modes means that Summit Strike is well worth the price of entry for all you serious and perhaps non serious military gamers.

    The freedom to roam and undertake missions works well and the story is gripping and entertaining at the same time.

    The animation is superb and very fluid. The controls are simple enough with a great interface.

    The game plays extremely smoothly with slightly 'iffy' storylines.

    The added modes are a real breath of fresh air for the series and make the game far greater than its predecessor. The online is very welcome and hopefully here to stay for any future games, although I do wish they would make a better ranking system and disconnect penalty.

    The customisation options are great for those of you wishing to get that bit more bang for your buck but are not really needed for the more casual players who will have enough to contend with in the Classic and Story modes.

    Top Spin 4 isn't the most accessible game for newcomers as there's a bit of a steep learning curve to begin with. However, stick with it, learn the strokes,start winning matches and you'll be rewarded with a deeply atmospheric, precise tennis game that's actually pretty darn good to play.

    WWE All Stars is a perfect fit for a new WWE video game, it's over-the-top, greatly exaggerated, and best off all it appeals to long time fans thanks to its legendary roster, which makes All Stars this generation's greatest WWE video game.

    L.A. Noire is a grand and technically superior game, and possibly a bit too big for its own good. whilst there's no denying that you'll be hooked into the story and intrigued by the presentation, the gameplay perhaps lets the overall experience down.

    At 800 Microsoft points, Bangai-O HD: Missile Fury is an absolute steal, and anyone looking for a solid action-packed shmup, or just a good time filled to the brim with explosions, would be remiss to not give it a good, hard look.

    DiRT 3 proves to be a worthy outing, and in comparison to its predecessors offers enough bang for its proverbial buck in terms of overall content. However, the addition of the new Gymkhana free-style mode may give long-time DiRT fans more than they bargained for, and not necessarily in a good way with regards to the progression of the Tour mode. Gymkhana aside, and what we have here is another fine addition to the series that offers up plenty of incentive to rev those engines and get down n' dirty on the race track once again.

    Naturally full of suspense and will no doubt make many players jump in their seat at times or genuinely feel anxious whilst playing.

    The game play is solid throughout and never overly complicated. The combat is fluid and intuitive especially if you scratch beneath the surface to find a rewarding combo system in place.

    If you were to rent RR6 then you would barely have enough time to scratch the surface of what the game has to offer so I would recommend a purchase if you are a racing fan looking for new horizons and new challenges.

    Once you get over the initial speed of the game and focus on the more tactical element then players will have a better time. However I fear that many players will lack the patience, especially if they are used to fast paced first person shooters.

    The lack of genuine Live play does hurt the longevity of the game but I guess you cant have everything.

    They have certainly spent a lot of time tweaking the gameplay mechanics to create something more entertaining and more importantly, fair online, however there are still some minor quibbles that will displease.

    I say this time and time again, if you don’t own a previous version of Madden than this game will have everything you want to play football.

    Prey offers a surreal and entertaining playing experience; however I did feel that it was a one trick pony, albeit a very good trick indeed.

    Sadly the popular co-op mode from "Chaos Theory" did not make its return in Double Agent, I’m sure there are reasons but I am and no doubt many other fans of "Chaos Theory’s" co-op mode will be disappointed that it did not make its return in the new game.

    I still feel that although enjoyable, the puzzles weren’t as fiendish as previous games and offered only a mild mental challenge. I also felt that the linearity of the levels lost some of the exploration elements found in previous titles especially as not once did I lose my bearings.

    If you have never played a Far Cry game before then now is the time as Far Cry Instincts Predator has a lot to offer.

    The controls aren’t quite 100% satisfactory, but an incredibly brave attempt has been made and should be applauded.

    A long game in that there are plenty of dungeons to fight through and the fact [is] that it’s not easy if you don’t continually add credits.
