    This is a consistently entertaining piece of fluff that sticks to an idea and doesn't stray too far from it. [Issue 144, p.96]

    Deeply flawed, but still very playable. If you can bear the frustrations involved then there’s a compelling plot and ample amount of fun with fire to be had before you’ve even started messing around in the map editor.

    Plays like a greatest hits album for the series so far. [Issue#251, p.72]

    With the introduction of TNA Impact! the climate has suddenly changed; hopefully, though, this will translate to a less-frustrating (but similarly full) release from Yuke’s next year.

    An inferior entry in the series to its predecessor. [Issue#243, p.68]

    Newcomers will find enjoyment within at least one title and, if nothing else, will enjoy experiencing a little of our rich gaming history. [Issue #147, p.91]

    Throwaway single-player and a sometimes dodgy online experience stop this from being a good arcade racer. [Issue#208, p.99]

    The real bonus is the range of race types available. [Issue#160, p.96]

    A polished, high-quality product, but its repetitiveness makes it less than compelling. Criterion seems to have lost sight of the high-adrenaline dynamic that makes Burnout exciting. [Issue#162, p.74]

    This does just feel like a slight adjustment over NHL 12, which felt like a minor tinkering of NHL, which... well, you get the point. [Issue#223, p.85]

    It may not be the best-looking thing on two wheels, but MotoGP 13 translates the art of motorcycle racing onto the humble PlayStation 3 controller. That's no small feat. [Issue#233, p.80]

    A nice challenge and it certainly looks good in high definition, but it can become infuriatingly complicated during the later phases of each level. [Issue#155, p.88]

    A healthy, inoffensive slice of 2D platforming that no developers really bother with these days. Worth picking up if and when it's discounted. [Issue#215, p.85]

    A great example of the new wave of indie horror, Outlast isn't revolutionary or particularly terrifying, but some great jump scares and a fun, cheesy story make it well worth checking out. [Issue#241, p.72]

    It's getting harder each year to cling onto the memory of PES being the best footballing game out there... It's not as good as FIFA. [Issue#197, p.84]
