    GRAW 2 is full of overblown, brilliant moments with only a sporadic dose of boring levels. [Issue#157, p.82]

    In many respects, Shadow of Mordor is a rip-off of other titles, but its one original idea - the Nemesis system - ensures that doesn't matter. Manipulation and subterfuge are always fun. [Issue#250, p.66]

    Anything Rock Band can do, World Tour can do better. That said, the gap is only small and, unless you’re particularly fussed by Music Studio mode, your preference should ultimately be determined by your music tastes.

    While the on-track action is hard to fault, the off-track content just seems to slow things down. [Issue#197, p.92]

    An absolute steal at £9.99, and worth far more than that. Sound Shapes has justified the outrageous hype surrounding it. More than just a good game, it's a great showcase for the system. More of this, please.

    A truly excellent racing game, and a welcome addition to the PS3 canon. If it weren't for the lack of multiplayer this would score in the nineties. [JPN Import; Issue # 149, p.56]

    Improving vastly upon Fight Night Round 3's compartmentalised battles while retaining its sequel's silky-smooth animation, Champion is a triumph. [Issue#203, p.80]

    Due to the arguably archaic control scheme and the co-op aspect, Resi 5 isn’t for everybody. Then again, we love it, and we’ve been playing Resident Evil for over a decade; if you’re one of us, then Resident Evil 5 will suit you perfectly.

    A robust and rewarding Souls-like. We'd rather it deviated from its source material a little more but there's no denying what's in front of you is worth the price of admission. [Issue#269, p.84]

    It will wrap itself around any adventure game fan and refuse to let them go, regardless of whether they have any nostalgia for the original or not. [Issue#269, p.78]

    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]

    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]

    Improves on the original in many ways, but fails to address its most fundamental flaw – that its challenges are generally too narrow, prescriptive and frustrating. The fantastic new Hall Of Meat mode offers some considerable compensation, though.

    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]
