    Perfection. Tiger 13 is so good it raises the question - what can EA's PGA Tour series do next, shy of personally jetting you to Augusta to play on Amen Corner itself? [May 2012, p.108]

    • 85 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    A phenomenal multiplayer FPS with a polished campaign and smart co-op. Looks and sounds great, but - next to the PC - exposes the limits of the PS3 hardware. [Christmas 2011, p.90]

    Keenly directed and liberatingly open, Journey is occasionally impenetrable - but that's the price of mystery. A short trip, but one to cherish. [Apr 2012, p.90]

    A bold and more random game, which still thrills like few others - but the increased realism makes for a chaotic, often taxing experience. [Dec 2011, p.96]

    Imaginative, epic and brilliant, but not for instant fix gamers. [Dec 2008, p.26]

    It's a masterpiece of balance, of design, and the jewel in Sony's online crown.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Arguably less fluid and immediate than its rival FIFA 12, PES 2012's superior single-player game is nevertheless deep, challenging and often outright magical. [Dec 2011, p.102]

    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Back to Karkand's maps are tried-and-true classics, and BF3's tech brings plenty of thunder. It's a bit on the expensive side, however.

    Crucially, it's great fun, and you'll want to play Absolution through more than once. [Christmas 2012, p.90]

    Despite its age, Metal Gear Solid HD still does bang-up stealth, and couples it with some of the maddest storytelling ever pressed to disc. Still essential. [Feb 2012, p.100]

    Overall Five ace games in one box. The slowdown shouldn't stop you having an Orange Christmas.

    It's original, cute, tough and probably the best puzzle-platformer available on PSP. [Oct 2011, p.111]

    Shadow of the Colossus is essential, Ico is great but showing its age, but both are worthy of a revisit - especially if you've never played either of them before.
