    It touches on moments of sheer brilliance and is one of the best racing experiences irrespective of platform. But its adherence to realism is also sometimes its biggest enemy. [Issue#158, p.86]

    Where Borderlands was 'sent out to die', Borderlands 2 has been sent out to kill. And it does just that. It will easily be one of the best games released all year and the more we dream of that delicious four-player co-op, the more we think it's one of the top games this generation.

    Brutal, yet hugely rewarding, Dirt Rally both understands and respects its eponymous sport. It doesn't patronise with gimmicky mechanics, nor is it a dry, joyless simulation. [Issue#269, p.76]

    A well-written love letter to the classic games of the Eighties that blends a variety of classic platformers into a game that works regardless of any nostalgia. We dig it. [Issue#258, p.72]

    We would like some improvements to modes and presentation, but the on-pitch action is of such stellar quality that PES 2016 remains the champion. [Issue#262, p.66]

    It leaves much to be desired in terms of content, but the quality of what is there and how it will evolve over the months makes this a top tier fighter that is going to get better over time. [Issue#267, p.59]

    Undisputed is gorgeous to look at, it’s incredibly deep, and it’s one of the most addictive fighters we’ve played in ages. Yuke’s deserves high praise, and that is exactly what we intend to give it.

    The permanent threat of death keeps you forced to the ground – we can’t remember the last game where we willingly snuck around so much – and it feels like the claustrophobic corridors and catwalks of the Sevastopol were built from that angle. Being crouched, looking up at everything… it really does give you that feeling that Creative Assembly wanted it all along – that ‘prey being hunted’ effect. It makes a refreshing change from the feeling of being overpowered and able to kill anything that appears.
