    Untouched, beautiful and brings a tear to the eye. We would wax lyrical about this game all day, if we had the chance. [Apr 2006, p.112]

    With seven Metal Slug games on one disc and all for under 30 quid this anothology is definitely worth picking up. [Issue#154, p.90]

    Black merely gives us what we want deep, deep down. Those little voices crying out for destruction need silencing every now and again. [Apr 2006, p.88]

    You're going to get it, and you're going to love it because, basically, it packs more glowing fistfuls of sheer entertainment than any other game on the PS3. But be warned: it's an inexcusable pain in the arse when it wants to be. [Issue#163, p.70]

    The perfect mix of button-hammering and technique, and all at a suitable difficulty level. The battles stay fresh thanks to all the different attacks and the cast are odd enough to keep you interested without resorting to cliches. [Issue # 149, p.74]

    With improved trial sequences and another excellent plot, Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair is a brilliant sequel - but it's a sequel that's definitely best played after the original. [Issue#249, p.74]

    Does almost everything well, from the involving story and beautiful graphics to the compelling characters, and does one thing - the battle system - better than any other RPG we've seen. [Issue#139, p.90]

    If you live and breathe for over the top Japanese craziness then No More Heroes should be at the top of your wish list. [Issue#206, p.90]

    A stellar action-RPG that is easily one of the best games of its kind, Diablo III is a dangerously addictive solo loot grind and one of the most chaotic and compelling co-op games we've played in ages. [Issue#235, p.74]

    Yes, it isn't the genre-redefining Far Cry 2 follow-up it could (and perhaps in an idealised world, should) have been. It is, however, a beautiful, thrilling and supremely well-made open world shooter; a true epic. There's enough content to challenge open world RPGs, even, and unlike those games, the combat is as good as any FPS on PS3. If not better.

    It's fast, frantic, fun, furious and flipping well other things that begin with f. Even so, it's a shame that Capcom didn't push the boat out with extra modes, stages or characters. [Issue#202, p.80]
