    It's another NFS game which means you know exactly what to expect before peeling the cellophane off. That doesn't mean it's bad though. [Issue #147, p.84]

    Longevity is assured thanks to a variety of maps and plans to land and only the fact that stages can take a while to get going lets it down. [Issue#198, p.103]

    It's a bit light on the additions and isn't recommended to those who bought 09. On the other hand, it's a solid, fun and well-presented title for fans and non-fans of the sport. [Issue#184, p.79]

    Aside from being in a league of its own, Noby Noby Boy is so charming it can transform you from a respectable adult to a child in minutes. Don’t resist the urge – rediscover why you decided to play games in the first place.

    When it makes contact, GT5 absolutely hits it out of the park so we hope lesser elements like online integration can be improved before Polyphony's opus strikes out. [Issue#200, p.85]

    Some of these games are good – some aren’t. It’s only about £30 for 48 titles and it’ll make your house look tidier, and save your knees from too much bending down.

    There's no great leaps for the series and it doesn't take huge advantage of the hardware's unique features, but it's still very bloody good.

    So yes, Ground Zeroes is a triumph: a wonderful introduction to Metal Gear Solid V that will whet people’s appetites for the main game while giving them plenty to play with as they wait. Still, the fact remains that it is far too expensive. For £20, this would be an easy recommendation, but £30 is simply too much. Still, judged as an isolated experience, Ground Zeroes is excellent. Whether you choose to wait for a reduction in price is another matter.

    As Amazing, Fantastic and Incredible as this may be, the blocks are starting to fade ever-so-slightly and if the team isn’t careful, this could be the last truly great build it gets out of them.
