    Space Marine is just endless war. Thanks to powerful weapons and excellent pacing, that war is pretty damn fun.

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

    Rochard is just four or five hours long, but it has boatloads of charm and a surprising amount of character. [Feb 2012, p.99]

    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]

    For all the action, for all the explosions, for all the adamantium-spined squad members, it's really not for the impatient - but if you don't mind fighting the control system as much as the Krauts, it's a refreshingly different take on what was rapidly becoming a tired setting. [Nov 2006, p.74]

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

    A cheap and filling snack of carnage. [Apr 2007, p.80]

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

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

    Atmospheric and gorgeous, an excellent indie calling card. [Feb 2008, p.83]

    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]

    Takes merciless puzzling into the war room. Obssessive fun. [Feb 2009, p.62]

    Satisfying, unintimidating war with rich visuals, held back by flavourless map design and a poor singleplayer mode. [Apr 2010, p.85]

    A fantastically imaginative gameworld of gods, dinosaurs and giants, beautiful but messy and poorly explained.

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

    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]

    Although it's a shorter, shallower and less sexy version of Dragon Age: Origins, this is nonetheless still long, deep and sexy. [Apr 2010, p.88]

    Excellent house-breaking multiplayer that's great while it lasts, but may wear out early due to lack of maps.

    An exciting, surprising and thought-provoking adventure rendered in a beautiful art style. Gemini Rue earns respect.

    Shift 2's sheer weight of stuff – from mud-ring circuits in a VW Golf to Bugatti duels at the Nurburgring – gives it a deep bag of appeal. There's an array of fiddly details for car geeks to poke at, and a range of control-difficulty settings that allow you to tailor races to your ability. The only downside to such a complete package is that it demands so many hours of acclimatisation before the cars start to make sense.

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

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