    A beautiful nostalgia trip that also stands on its own blurry blue legs. Utterly heart-warming.

    It's a bit user-unfriendly but in terms of features this is easily the greatest Guitar Hero game yet.

    If you already own "Madden NFL 07" then for once we do actually think it's worth trading it in because there are so many new features that it's improved in almost every way. [Oct 2007, p.86]

    Yes, VVVVVV is challenging and some rooms can have you squirming in frustration as you die over and over again but with nicely positioned checkpoints ensuring you go back in for more, it's hugely addictive.

    By all means get DJ Hero if you're a fan of music games and have a wad of cash burning a hole in your pocket, because Freestyle Games has put together a fantastic music title. Everyone else will just have to wait until the price drops.

    It would be a crime if only hardcore gamers enjoyed this. The deepest game on DS, full stop.

    A highly original RPG that oozes class through the screens and speakers. The unique battle system is a great idea, despite being let down occasionally by iffy controls. [May 2008, p.87]

    SSX Blur looks great and plays brilliantly. The controls don't try to make you feel like a boarder - they just make you feel in touch with the game, and that's what the Wii is all about. [Apr 2007, p.76]

    Expanded and miniaturised, Ultimate finds its natural home on 3DS. Only the lack of online and faffy controls prevent must-buy status.

    Five-a-side is a great addition. Just as well, as the rest is mostly similar to last year's game.

    Nintendo keeps promising us new ways to play on Wii U and we can't help but feel KnapNok might have got there first. There's nothing else quite like this.

    There are elements we can't defend, such as the dated visuals, or the limited soundtrack, but taken as a whole, Devil Survivor Overclocked is a huge, ambitious game that works perfectly on its own terms.
