    Brilliantly combining as stiff a task as you're likely to encounter with a perfectly pitched sense of fun, Kingdom Rush breathes new life into the tower defence genre, and has a whole lot of laughs doing it.

    Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake is a funny and charming puzzle collection, with lots of secrets to uncover, that's only let down by some finicky controls.

    Rimelands: Hammer of Thor fits snugly into the turn-based role-playing genre, but offers enough variation to keep the action fresh and exciting.

    A sophisticated platformer with style, Mirror's Edge has polished gameplay but not length and lasting value.

    It's lost some edge and coherence in transit, but Snuggle Truck's lighter tone is arguably a better fit for its blend of knockabout physics-based fun.

    Motorsport Manager 2 is a highly polished, incredibly engaging simulation. But it's not too daunting if you're new to the genre. There are things to tweak and think about, but there's never too much information that you feel squashed under it. But there's still enough going on that you feel like you're part of something. Fans of sims, of racing, and even people with only a vague interest in either, are going to lap up everything this one has to offer. Oh hey, lap, that's a pun.

    Beautiful to look at, hugely engrossing to play and - most importantly of all - fun. Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is an essential purchase for anyone who owns a PSP, and should convince those who don't to rectify the situation promptly.

    Has a very high entry barrier, but beyond it is a unique and compelling fusion of strategy game and history lesson.
