    Plays the opposition off the park. The best footy sim on the PlayStation, and possibly every other format as well.

    I very much intend to retire from the human race and hibernate with this game.

    Probably the most fun you can have with two people without having to clear up afterwards.

    This game is so phat man, it's sick.

    Perfect in every way. Except for the manual, which I've burnt along with every other first person shooter in the office games cupboard: there's no point in keeping either now.

    Nothing short of epic.

    The audio is wonderful and matches the graphics, though the storyline is fairly pointless, and there's a certain childlike quality to it that could annoy but was fine with me.

    Graphically stunning, packed with features and playability out of the very top drawer.

    • 91 Critic Score
    As an excellent variation on the throw away RTS culture of the moment, especially for it's potential longevity on my play list and for some pukka explosions!

    Allowing the kind of mass battles that we've previously only dreamed of, this epochal title gives us war and so much more.

    McRae Rally 2.0 oozes quality and demands to be played again and again.

    It combines the best of team based gaming with an authentic and therefore exciting approach to tactical ops.

    A great game, and one that will keep you entertained for hours, the plot will keep you amused and the various weapons in the game will make for a great action adventure.

    Blending RPG features seamlessly with action elements and wrapping it all up with one of the better narratives to grace a PC game.

    Where the game scores low is in the repeated use of cliched fantasy fodder in the shape of the narrative, nomenclature, audio and character portraits.

    It's not the all-encompassing experience of godly power that was suggested. You have to play it in a fairly rigid and organised fashion.

    Hostile Waters is not only a superb PC game it's actually one of the very best games I've ever played.
    • Spank!
    • 94 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The twists and turns of the plot are brought to life on screen in a way that leaves you itching to find out what's round the next corner.

    A cracking title, that's so finely tuned and crafted as well as addictive and compelling.

    At last a decent comic-book conversion that is extremely playable and will even appeal to those who aren't fans of the comic.

    If I had to choose my favourite (realistic) racing game, a couple of weeks ago I would have said Colin McRae but now it's most definitely the sequel.

    Witty, knowing, referential, and above all supremely playable, Conker is an absolute corker.

    A lot more difficult than "Ocarina of Time" and not quite as user-friendly.

    There's plenty of challenging levels and the most blinkered PS2 stalwart would have to admit that it looks amazing.

    One billion points for single handily dragging online RPGs out of a mire of orcs, beards and dreadful graphics. It's repetitive and shallow (kind of) but it's also amazingly beautiful, addictive and - believe it or not - socially rewarding and instructive!

    What is absolutely stunning is the total absence of formulaic gameplay. Even the best video game is somewhat formulaic after a fashion, but UFC is almost entirely unpredictable.

    Frustratingly difficult at first, F355 rewards the patient gamer with an experience that just can't be beaten.

    Like the Soup Nazi from "Seinfeld" - it demands perfection from itself, so how can it expect any less from it's customers? Tough, but rewardingly so.

    • 93 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is the fastest, smoothest, most graphically sumptuous first person shooter available at the moment. Get used to the control method and you will be riveted; Get a mouse and a keyboard and you'll be unstoppable.

    • 87 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    The game oozes quality like a sponge saturated with some extremely viscous liquid, but it fails on the grounds of lack of innovation and occasional lapses into cliched role-playing game territory.
