    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.

    It's not just doing the same rack & attack routine that it could have been, the programmers have added well thought-out missions that are good fun.

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

    If you're going to buy one role playing game this year then this has to be it.

    What MSR fails to do is generate any real adrenalin rush.

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

    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.

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

    Serious Sam was born into a world where "Doom" has placated the need for logical thought and lives in a world governed by the visceral.

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

    What is does deliver are moments of pure fun and exhilaration, and I commend it for not trying to be anything other than a pure blast and destruction on a huge scale which is what most of us want to see.

    Story, attention to detail, stunning visuals and exceptional character AI makes a standard shooting fare, compelling and enjoyable.

    Slightly shallow, but good, blood-splattered fun for all that, DC 2 is at the very least one of the most graphically accomplished arcade games you'll see on the PlayStation.

    Americans + Frenchmen - Nazis = Fun

    Me, I'm gonna have another go, but I'm odd like that.

    The real problem here is the shoulder-saggingly illogical puzzles. If you're a Monkey Island fan this is a bitter disappointment and if you're not you'll wonder what on earth all the fuss is about.

    Not the greatest game you'll ever play, but a good blast with plenty of atmosphere and ideas to see you through to the end.

    If you have never played a Tekken game before then prepare for perhaps the best fighting game ever, however Tekken veterans shouldn't expect too much.

    A technically devastating graphics engine, the funniest script in computer games history, and a soupcon of strategy, together with imaginative and variety packed action.

    People looking for a more realistic and rewarding football experience go for "ISS Pro Evolution." If a fast and not too taxing kickabout is what you want, well, you know the score with FIFA games by now.

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

    A bold breath of fresh air. It delivers an unrivalled single player experience and providing you have the hardware, delivers a stunningly realised world to explore. The only weak point is the combat system.

    Everything you could hope for in a Quake game is present and correct, with two glaring exceptions - mouse/keyboard control, and on-line play.

    Princess Amidala might by nice and decorative, but a convincing military leader she ain't.

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

    If you're looking for no-frills old school resource management, then Red Alert 2 is what you are looking for.

    Dig below the surface however and you'll find the kind of depth that'll take weeks or even months to fully explore. A shameless clone of Sony's "Gran Turismo," and a a pretty good one too.

    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.

    You can't fault the simulation, but there's not enough here to recommend it to anyone who isn't a die-hard fan of old-style aerial combat.

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