    Another cracking Burnout. It isn't for the weak-hearted because of the difficulty at later levels, but when it shines, oh boy, it dazzles. [Mar 2007, p.96]

    Looks outdated, but is challenging, cheeky and charming. The combat and sidequests will keep you entertained for ages. [June 2007, p.86]

    The new rotation mechanic takes some getting used to, but Koloomn proves complex, satisfying and horribly addictive. Good stuff. [Apr 2006, p.113]

    EA's ice hockey annual trades gamepay depth for arcade accessibility and speed. For our money though the PS2 offers a greater challenge. [Nov 2006, p.103]

    A throwback to the days when pure and simple game design reigned supreme, Lemmings is one of the most instantly playable and addictive games that will ever grace your PSP. [Mar 2006, p.94]

    A dirty, grisly, filthy but brilliant game experience. [Jan 2007, p.106]

    Its intelligent plot and great looks could have made Suikoden V spellbinding - if only it wasn't so tedious. [Nov 2006, p.106]

    This is not "Jak 4." It's just a kart racer, albeit a quality one with bags of online potential. [Dec 2005, p.106]

    An extremely average crime sim bolted onto a much-loved license, this just proves that you can't buy class. Not horrific, just freakin' dull. [Apr 2006, p.88]

    An entertaining if shallow compilation of some genuine classics that's well worth a punt at 20 quid. [Christmas 2006, p.92]

    No threat to "GTA," but it's not meant to be. Instead it's an absorbing role-playing adventure with plenty to keep you busy. [Sept 2006, p.74]

    Guns, aliens and conspiracies make for a top-notch shooter. [Jan 2007, p.106]

    Educational and enjoyable, and will last you for months. It's just a shame that the tests are so samey. [Jan 2007, p.90]

    Not as educational as the upcoming "Buzz! Schools," but Mega is a packet of guaranteed rainy-day entertainment. [Apr 2007, p.90]

    It's not very deep, but it's very fast, looks gorgeous and handles ever so sweetly. [Nov 2007, p.119]

    The vast amount of characters will excite fans, but MKA feels old-fashioned. The series needs to evolve if it's going to survive. [Dec 2006, p.80]

    Hardcore, ultra-bloody, action-survival horror. [Jan 2007, p.106]

    Pushes the right buttons but the uninitiated can bash away and still win, so it doesn't match the flair or control of a Virtua. [Feb 2007, p.65]

    Well-presented and weirdly therapeutic mix of flight sim and arcade shooter that doesn't quite satisfy on either front, but is a decent enough game for all of that. [Christmas 2006, p.85]

    This is extraordinary stuff. Our excitement is only slightly dampened by inconsistent driving and sudden difficulty spikes. [Nov 2006, p.154]

    A cracking surprise, The Belkan War is hardcore plane porn tuned for maximum thrills and money shots. [Oct 2006, p.90]

    • 70 Critic Score
    Impressive, immense and pretty but somehow it fails to achieve greatness due to shortage of a variety of high-speed thrills. [Feb 2007, p.72]

    Too linear, but one of PS3's most charming and satisfying adventures so far. [Nov 2007, p.118]

    If you haven't already been hooked by Katamari's mad charms, then this really is the perfect place to start. [June 2006, p.87]

    Filled with neat innovations and bringing a real focus to its story-mode gameplay, The Sims 2 is the best console God sim yet. [Nov 2005, p.88]

    While "GTA" and its imitators keep tongues firmly in cheek, Scarface plays it totally straight throughout - the chuckles come from Tony's increased madness and warped sense of morality, not funny radio stations and fast food joints with joke names. The result is a city full of people that feels genuinely realistic. [Nov 2006, p.76]
