    Suitably epic and still fun to play, Kratos's last outing isn't necessarily his finest. Hindered by some tired mechanics it's not as much of a step forward as we wanted. [Issue#190, p.61]

    Dominator may lack a proper identity, but in terms of visceral action and an absolutely thrilling sense of speed, it's distinctly Burnout - and therefore brilliant. Just be prepared for more of the same. A hell of a lot more. [Issue #152, p.74]

    A reduced price point for two of the best games from their respective platforms is a no-brainer. Square has done a fantastic job bringing these games up to modern standards. [Issue#252, p.72]

    The Power Stone games have always been about grossly over-the-top, exaggerated, and unashamedly indulgent bar-room style brawling. They are, to be blunt, insane, but the good kind of insane. [Issue 145, p.77]

    Entering the ring with a lot to prove, the development team has been both daring and dynamic in its approach. Despite a few glitches, Yuke's has produced a game that can more than hold its own with the quality "SmackDown" games of old. [Issue#159, p.66]

    Odd rough patch or misfire aside, Resident Evil 6 is bursting with innovation, content and confidence that shows Capcom knows exactly what it's doing with it's series. Now fully tooled up for co-op, this feels like Resident Evil worthy of modern times.
