    Defcon is an equation that looks simple but can never quite be solved, and it always leaves you scratching your chin, your mind bristling with ideas for new atrocities to engineer. [Nov 2006, p.70]

    The speed of TrackMania is truly ridiculous: you might think the idea of subtlety is lost when you're hitting about a gagillion miles an hour, but the faster the car, the better the handling. [Apr 2007, p.74]

    Great physics; the best PC fighting game since "Rag Doll Kung Fu." [Christmas 2006, p.90]

    Funnier than any game in years, and delightfully rude. Point-and-click adventuring done right for a change. [Sept 2009, p.74]

    An excellent action-horror sequel. Dead Space 2 doesn't try to innovate, but it's a highly polished alien-rending experience.

    All in all, it's the finest selection of planes ever to ship with a commercial non-combat flight sim. [Dec 2006, p.86]

    It might well be more twitch than tactics, but Vegas is the fun, modernised version of its own predecessors and FPS cousin "Brothers in Arms." I reckon that right now you're itching for a shooter with a brain at the top of that jittery reptilian nervous system, and this is it - if you have God's own PC. [Feb 2007, p.84]

    Dazzling, vicious fighting extravaganza, with tons of replay value. But you have to work hard to find out what's going on, or to care. [Aug 2009, p.68]

    A good FPS and a good RPG come together to make an excellent game. Or FPSRPG if you're being fancy. [Dec 2009, p.86]

    A platforming evolution that turns the genre upside down. Has its own intriguing and original art style, too. [June 2009, p.98]

    Tactile, bloody and substantial. One of gaming's most exciting open worlds - but only when you're online. [Apr 2010, p.96]

    Standard quests and a throwaway story can't dent the thrill of Rift's invasions, or the depth of its soul system. [May 2011, p.92]

    An intense and beautifully designed action-physics platformer, which also happens to be dirt cheap.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    An indie platform game with endearing retro looks, style, sophistication, and a sadistic streak. [Mar 2010, p.96]
