    Even compared to previous Hitman games, Blood Money feels focused, fresh and utterly compelling. You owe it to yourself to play this. [July 2006, p.66]

    The happiest game on PSP will cheer you up to no end. It's simple to pick up and play and equally hard to put down. This is the strongest handheld title we've played, well, ever. [July 2006, p.100]

    A joy to play. Whether you're restoring nature, battling enemies or exploring the Japanese countryside, Okami is perhaps the most beautiful game on PS2. [JPN Import; July 2006, p.94]

    Recommended unreservedly if you've not played it before. Otherwise, it simply fixes the ludicrous difficulty of the first one and broadens its appeal. [Aug 2006, p.60]

    What a run RPGs are on at the moment - "Dragon Quest VIII," "Kingdom Hearts 2," and now Rogue Galaxy, which just about tops them all. Wondrous and sublime. [JPN Import; Apr 2006, p.54]

    FFXII is a gargantuan, gorgeous game with a gripping plot, likeable characters and an interesting new combat system that injects some much-needed life into the series. Wonderful. [JPN Import; June 2006, p.44]

    One of the strongest, most accomplished games on PS2. Kingdom Hearts 2 excels on almost every level and sweats charm. Hate RPGs? This could change your mind. [JPN Import; Apr 2006, p.60]

    An absolutely massive game world, an amazing soundtrack, gorgeous visuals, and some of the best RPG combat we've ever tussled with. Social Life? What's that? [May 2006, p.60]

    Harmonix say they want to give you - ordinary, untalented punter - the experience of playing music, and they've succeeded majestically. Terrific. [May 2006, p.50]

    There doesn't seem to be as much to learn this time and feels more like a simple update than usual. Still, "WE 10" is the best footie game around, no contest. [JPN Import; July 2006, p.86]

    Fast, beautiful and perfectly playable. Embrace its simplicity and lose yourself in the ride of your life. Don't expect ANY realism though. [Apr 2006, p.56]

    The slickness and variety on offer makes this stand head and shoulders above its competition. After "GTA," Syphon Filter is definitely THE action game to own on PSP. [June 2006, p.74]

    Coast 2 Coast could be prescribed as a cure for depression. The most fun you'll have had in ages, and only denied a 90 because it's a bit simple. Still, on PSP it's second only to "Burnout." [Apr 2006, p.84]

    Top notch visuals and subtly tweaked fight mechanics makes this one well-rounded beat-'em-up. [Apr 2006, p.56]
