    A dazzling reminder of what FPS as pure entertainment can be. Serious Sam is still relevant, and this remake is a real blast. [Feb 2010, p.62]

    Prefer a beastly PC over a console? It’s about time you played some Guitar Hero. Fun for kids and adults, great alone or with friends, and perfect for pretending you’re awesome at something you may well suck at in real life. [Mar 2008, p.57]

    It's the best Call of Duty campaign in years, and the multiplayer continues to scratch a certain itch. [Jan 2015, p.64]

    Not for everyone, but if you like a mix of solo and co-op play, and big monsters, Evolve is very solid indeed. [Apr 2015, p.55]

    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A great wargame that doesn't sacrifice its depth for strategic challenge. Some puzzle-like scenarios will obfuscate enjoyment. [Oct 2011, p.64]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Same great quality, plus enough subtle tweaks to shake things up for the better. [Aug 2010, p.61]

    Does for risk what Plants vs. Zombies did or tower Defense - made it colourful and gave it character! [May 2011, p.66]

    Relax - this Total War game is a return to form for Creative Assembly, with a very engaging setting. [Apr 2015, p.64]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A tighter, louder and gaudier journey than the first, but the core sandbox gameplay still manages to occasionally shine through. It's also the best looking game the PC has ever seen. [May 2011, p.72]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Difficult to get into and somewhat unintuitive, but so wonderfully tactical and complicated! [May 2011, p.74]

    • 80 Critic Score
    We found the different races to be surprisingly equal on the battlefield and if this holds up under super competitive online play UAW could become very popular indeed. [Feb 2008, p.59]

    • 80 Critic Score
    This isn't serious RTS. You may see RA3 trotted out at tournaments here and there, but it will never be a stalwart of the genre. Not in that way, at least. But when it comes to the elusive quality we call “fun”, this is a benchmark title. [Christmas 2008, p.71]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A nice-enough end to a stellar first episodic outing, but some will find the puzzles lacking. [Feb 2010, p.61]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A game that's more shooter than role-playing, and a conclusion that's more spectacular than dramatic. [Apr 2012, p.47]
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    "A gripping rollercoaster ride." - Stephen King. [Apr 2012, p.52]
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A game with real soul. The gut impact is huge, but it may leave some with a faint appetite for just a little more. [Nov 2010, p.56]

    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Red Tide rewards patience and planning with immense satisfaction. [Nov 2010, p.62]

    It doesn't reinvent the genre, but Primordia's rich script, interesting world and solid puzzles make up for its minor annoyances. [Feb 2013, p.72]

    • 80 Critic Score
    It seems Gas Powered Games has really been listening to the fans because forged Alliance builds on the Supreme Commander legacy to make a great game downright amazing. [Jan 2008, p.58]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of the better games of its type on the market but too similar to the first games to have existing fans cheering for joy. [Nov 2010, p.63]
