    This is a flight sim light on content, but it's not like you have to pay for it, is it? [May 2012, p.102]

    Not one to buy if you own the original. [Feb 2011, p.82]

    For only 1.99, it's a trip back in time worth taking. [March 2013, p.95]

    The most realistic wargame simulation available today, albeit burdened by poor performance. [Aug 2010, p.100]

    It's deeply hilarious - as aracde-feeling as strategy games can get...It does everything it can, bar a song and dance routine, to entertain you. And it succeeds. [Apr 2007, p.62]
    • 76 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    An ambitious and beautiful RPG that falls just short of greatness, thwarted by a stunted finale and imbalances.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    FlatOut is the kind of game that's fun to win, but the charm quickly peels off when frustration sets in - and it will. [Oct 2008, p.82]

    An incredibly refreshing reinvention of the S&M games, much funnier, and far, far more interesting to play. [June 2010, p.96]

    7 quid is a good price for a universe. [Sept 2011, p.89]

    A sluggish interface, weak guns and a few dull sewers can't slow this game down. Dead Island is huge, bloody and beautiful.

    Space Marine is just endless war. Thanks to powerful weapons and excellent pacing, that war is pretty damn fun.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    We don't give marks for effort, so the game they've ended up with is all that matters. It's a great and truly new one, just not varied or exciting enough to live up to this particular name. [Feb 2009, p.54]

    The most enjoyable independent game I've played since "Defcon." Funny, challenging and cute, in the old school it's absolutely top of its class. [Mar 2007, p.76]

    An inventive and enjoyable puzzle platformer. [Sept 2010, p.84]

    Deep, logical and ambitious, Hearts of Iron 3 is a daunting prospect. Be prepared to lose entire weekends to it. [Oct 2009, p.88]

    The puzzles are excellent. [Sept 2010, p.105]

    Why on Earth would you learn to play real guitar when you can play this? [Jan 2008, p.72]

    Bite-sized, colourful chunks of randomly generated adventure. It's the perfect casual roguelike experience. [Nov 2011, p.114]
    • 87 Metascore
    • 81 Critic Score
    Satisfying, unintimidating war with rich visuals, held back by flavourless map design and a poor singleplayer mode. [Apr 2010, p.85]

    It's Panzer General in a new greatcoat. A perfect introduction to the wonderful world of wargaming. [Oct 2011, p.80]

    Aesthetically, emotionally, narratively and in terms of the interactions it demands, Supreme Commander is hard. [Jan 2008, p.82]

    It's not bad value if you're new to Race 07, but is perhaps a raw deal for those who own the base game. [Christmas 2009, p.106]

    A flawed but irresistible MMORTSCCG. [Apr 2009, p.74]

    The combat and final mission are weak, but the story strands that bind it all together are excitingly unique to each other. [July 2010, p.87]

    Flawed RPG fixed. [Nov 2008, p.88]

    The campaign is nothing special, but you get more than your money's worth in the Conquest multiplayer mode. [July 2011, p.96]

    The old soldier shows his gregarious side. This is gruelling but great WWII action, spanning every theatre.

    • 81 Critic Score
    A satisfying self-contained chapter, driven by an engrossing story, with exploration encouraged. Plus flying laser robots.

    The core game remains unchanged, the AI still quirky, the music ace, and the commentary surprisingly intricate and relevant. [Dec 2006, p.101]
