    Existing fans will relish the chance to explore Gotham and drink in the detail while going toe-to-toe with some marque villains plucked from DC Comics’ rich history. It’s just a shame that while Warner Bros Montreal proved it was a student capable of copying Rocksteady’s formula, it didn’t have the confidence to add any real ambition of its own.

    The whole point of this carnage, of course, is to survive as long as possible and rack up enough points to dominate your leaderboard of choice. It’s as old-school a premise as any game can have, but at least Burn Zombie Burn’s comedy weapons make the whole thing jolly god fun as a bonus.

    One of the best Madden experiences yet, even if the fabled presentation doesn't seem as strong as before. If you've wanted to get into the series before but haven't, now's the time. [Issue#209]

    HD is the most polished WipEout game so far, but doesn’t offer many new features. The single-player campaign warrants the low cost, but fans and newcomers alike will spend the most time seeking multiplayer thrills.

    The best, fastest and most exhilarating ride you’ll get for a long time. It’s got all the options you’ll want from a ‘street’ racer of this ilk, but it really doesn’t need it. The real joy is in the toughness and thrill of the races. Simple.

    A remarkable addition to the Network roster, Warhawk is probably the most fun we've had with our PS3s yet. That said, some of the gameplay is uneven, but the dogfighting alone should sell this to you. It's a joy. [Issue#157, p.78]
