    An unashamedly entertaining surprisingly strategic shooter. [Nov 2005, p.112]

    FIFA has grown up a bit and learnt that it has to do the dirty work first before it can get fancy. Competent, entertaining but far from faultless. [Nov 2005, p.132]

    SSX still rules the snowboard scene, but On Tour fails to live up to its predecessors. [Nov 2005, p.95]

    An influx of enjoyable new characters and stacks of authenticity keep this the finest grapple game on the planet. [Dec 2006, p.72]

    Even seven years after the original it looks and plays like few other RPGs. [June 2007, p.96]

    As addictive as they come. [Oct 2007, p.122]

    Predictably high production values, but those enticed by previous Snake adventures will find a hollow, confusing game. [June 2006, p.82]

    Stunning to look at and seriously addictive all the same. [Oct 2007, p.94]

    Despite its pedigree, there's not enough here to prise open our wallets. We're sticking with "Street Fighter Alpha Max" on PSP, thanks. [July 2006, p.91]

    A lack of realism does nothing to dampen the sheer fun and depth of play behind Virtua Tennis 3. It's, ahem, ace. [Apr 2007, p.95]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A versatile and immersive fighter packed with individual characters, top tunes, and bone-breaking aplenty. [Aug 2006, p.98]

    Black is what all shooters should be. An all-out assault on the senses. [Feb 2006, p.78]

    Too short despite early promise of an epic, Heavenly Sword is quite a disappointment. [Oct 2007, p.119]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 79 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Flaws such as button layout, poor targeting and matches that go on forever make this disappointingly average. [Nov 2006, p.155]

    • 79 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Mega Man's slow, limited range of movement and attacks make this a frustrating play that never comes close to being fun. [Mar 2006, p.86]

    Rez
    Hypnotic stuff. [Jan 2007, p.106]

    As a fluffy fantasy adventure Gurumin pushes all the right buttons, although it's hardly serious RPG fare. [July 2007, p.98]

    • 70 Critic Score
    Better than last year's handheld Madden game, but NFL nuts will notice the return of a few niggling flaws. [Oct 2006, p.104]

    EA's quality sim expands on PSP to include a deep career mode and online play. A "fairway" ahead of its competitors. [Dec 2006, p.95]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK

    • 80 Critic Score
    Interesting details for fans but also works as a standalone game - plus it maintains the chilling atmosphere of the big-screen games. [Christmas 2007, p.122]

    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A commendably original RPG which throws up plenty of surprises and improves substantially on previous outing, "Lucifer's Call." [June 2006, p.93]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 78 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A nice enough - but very brief - trip down memory lane, which would be a better value stripped down and bundled as an extra with a more modern game, or on PSP. [Dec 2005, p.124]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    As a port, it does the job. But the convulsive controls and lack of new features makes TRA for PSP only an optional extra to the PS2 experience. [Aug 2007, p.99]

    • 70 Critic Score
    It's not perfect but it's creepy. The mix of investigation and scores easily outweighs the clunky controls and occasional lulls in the action. [Mar 2006, p.105]

    Steer monkeys in Perspex balls around courses in this arcade oddity. [Jan 2007, p.106]

    It's still endlessly amusing to just run amok causing bizarre traffic accidents. [Aug 2006, p.86]

    • 70 Critic Score
    Near identical gameplay to its 05 counterpart and a more intricate management aspect - if that floats your boat then hop on board. [Nov 2005, p.122]
