    Despite the at-times frantic movement Outland superbly promotes fast flowing gameplay. It's a winner, and the two-player co-op modes are just bonuses on top of a truly satisfying and rewarding title. [July 2011 p84]

    A game of contrasts and challenges, the greatest irony of all is that there’s no dilemma to be had here. Your own Decision Game is simple: Virtue’s Last Reward fans must buy it, no question. [October 2016, p74]

    Packed full of content. Looks and plays better than ever before. Consider us a fan of the Skyland. [December 2013, p78]

    A return to pre-Ghosts form for the series, both in terms of solo and adversarial multiplayer. Held back by a lacklustre co-op offering, but otherwise a rock solid entry. [Christmas 2014]

    A big hitter, but not quite a home run due to unfixed bugs and a lack of evolution. [June 2014, p76]

    Forget “The Real Driving Simulator”, Project CARS is racing simulation at its finest. [July 2015, p71]

    Boasting looks that kill, a fresh-faced roster, and a pleasing amount of post-story content, MKX is the new fighting game champ to beat. [June 2015, p70]

    A runaway three-peat for the undisputed king of the court. [Christmas 2014, p80]

    The first and last episodes remain some of Telltale’s finest work, helping anchor a dark, involving narrative. And if that wasn’t enough, there’s a chain- smoking, bourbon-drinking pig. What more do you want? [January 2015, p79]

    A splendid mix of free-roaming action, RPG leveling, and sexy visuals. [June 2012, p77]

    Even though the lashings of blood have been removed, it’s still a sexy and rock-hard title. [Dec 2009, p.79]

    After a slow start it builds to a thundering crescendo and slaps on the action thick and fast, and you'll find a city that's yours for a good time, but not necessarily a long time. Dodgy vehicles aside, this has a belter of a combat system and is a lot of fun while it lasts. Get it. [Sept 2012, p.66]

    The definition of a pick up and play that's fiendishly addictive. This is perfect for the Vita. [May 2014, p77]

    Hitman: Absolution absolutely nails the modern gaming trope of presenting oodles of gameplay choice. It would be an insult to polarise Absolution into 'stealth' or 'action', where the real beauty of the game is found in the fertile grey area in between. [December 2012, p66]

    Although each year's Call of Duty has always been a package deal, Black Ops II represents a watershed moment. It's bulging at the seams, not only because nearly every team that's ever worked on Call of Duty has had a hand in it. The engine has been tweaked, multiplayer and CODcasting are both revolutionary, single-player has a decent lifespan and offers more than the same roller-coaster but on a tougher difficulty setting, while Zombies is mental comic relief.

    Heavily recycled from the PS3 version, but still one of the most rewarding 2D fighters around. [April 2012, p80]

    Despite the MP issues, Watch Dogs 2 hacks this series back on track with its gorgeous locales, and silly emergent fun. Marcus isn’t *quite* our cup of tea, but he sure beats the hell out of the last guy. [January 2016, p71]

    This is a year in which FIFA switches down a gear in terms of pure speed, yet provides marathons' worth of value, if you have the stamina for it. [Christmas 2015, p68]

    Yes, it’s punishing. But it’s the good, sexy kind of punishment. [February 2015, p74]

    A solid follow-up that although enjoyable, doesn’t quite reach the same heights of its debut. [April 2014, p80]

    So over the top it makes Jerry Bruckheimer and Michael Bay look restrained. This is an absolute laugh riot throughout. [Dec 2011, p66]

    Amazing value for newbies and borderline amazing to look at for veterans, this has a little something for everybody. [May 2015, p82]

    Super Stardust Delta represents phenomenal value for the pittance asking price. You'd need space rocks in your head to pass this up. [April 2012, p78]

    Less about providing an expansive footballing buffet of content and more about being authentic Cup paraphernalia, it features no club leagues but instead focuses on guiding one’s preferred international squad through qualification to a virtual World Cup Final. [June 2010 p76]
