    MAG
    The challenge of branding MAG with a number (much smaller than its trademarked 256 and between 1 and 10) to denote its quality is akin to rating World of Warcraft after a weekend of gold-farming, long before the full majesty of the game has blossomed and shown its true potential. The best we can do is rate our early impressions, undoubtedly influenced by the game’s prospects for the future.

    It might not be original, but it's certainly good fun, and all credit to Southpeak for picking up the slightly esoteric title for a European release – spread the word, 3D Dot Game Heroes deserves a place in your PS3 this Spring.

    White Knight Chronicles is a very good game. What you get out of it really depends on what you’re going to put in. It’ll be over in a few days if you just plow through the story, but if you get into the meat of the game and start developing your town and binding new items together to take on those tricky online group quests and grind up your guild rank, this is going to suck up a lot of your time.

    There is no doubt that Sonic & SEGA All-Stars borrows from Mario Kart heavily, however in this case that is no bad thing because this game has depth, it works well and most important of all, it’s great fun.

    Please bear in mind when considering this game that Echoshift is hard, and it is meant to be hard. If you have a rough time with earlier levels on the likes of Cuboid and Critter Crunch, this may not be for you; for everyone else who are fans of brain bending puzzle games, if you have the patience and stamina, this is an easy recommendation.

    Greed Corp is a wonderful little title which is highly addictive and quite original in its style of play. It is a tricky game to start with, however if you stick with it then you will begin to appreciate what a great little game it is.

    A triumph. A shining example of what the PSP can do in the right hands and is actually an improvement on the PS3 version.

    I’m a big fan of the pure arcade experience, and AfterBurner Climax offers exactly that. It’s concise to the point of being a little too short, but there’s lots to unlock, a nice smattering of Trophies and a couple of extra secret levels too.

    The levels themselves are wonderfully varied, ranging from luscious jungles, deserts and even a rather intense battle on a train.

    There are quite a few single-stick shooters on the PSN store now. In my opinion, this is the best of the bunch. It has been well-designed, balanced and tuned to perfection, and is a big improvement on the original.

    So is the game worth buying? If you are a Transformers fan, skip to Option A, if you are not, Option B is for you.

    Fifteen years ago DeathSpank would not only have been regarded as an accomplished and polished retail game, it would likely have been viewed as a leader in its field. It's an indication of just how comprehensive and refined DeathSpank is as a title.

    The only realistic emulation of the sport for home consoles. With its myriad of options and game modes there should be plenty to keep you occupied and, as long as you're prepared for the almost lethargic pacing, it is a joy to play.

    The Prince makes a triumphant return to his roots in The Forgotten Sands, and all of your fears of this being a rushed game to simply be released alongside the movie can be abolished; we'll put that one down to good timing.

    For fans of the PlayStation 3 version of Gravity Crash this is more of the same, slightly refined. That's not a bad thing though, the game is perfectly suited to short periods of play and the PSP's portability makes it an ideal fit.

    Compared to the similar block-sliding puzzler D-Cube Planet this is an example of just how good some minis are and how minis games are developing. The polished presentation makes this one of the best-looking, sounding and playing minis I have yet tried.

    This game grows on you in a curious way and winds up with you in furious determination to get 'just one level further this time'.

    It's priced well (at around £25), offers lots of gameplay and a couple of real gems.

    I think the biggest compliment I can give The Flying Hamster is that I that I forgot I was playing a mini. Compared to other minis it is rather expensive at £5.99, but there again compared to other minis it's well designed and perfectly polished.

    It does take a while for the action to really heat up and draw in the player but if you stick with it you'll find 50 plus hours of fun and a truly original gaming experience.

    Whilst you are probably going to have to install it to your memory card if you want the best experience and there are a few flaws, such as the questionable crowd sounds, if you're a fan of the UFC games this is pretty much made for you.

    Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is a tough one to score. Whilst it does little wrong, it also fails to raise pulses. What the player is left with is a very solid game, with strong puzzle and combat elements that is well worth a look.

    There are still issues with animations, ball physics and AI but nothing that isn't easily forgiven as a quirk of the game. There is one week between the release dates of FIFA and Pro Evo and while it's not yet clear who will be touring the city in an open topped bus, at last PES has earned its place in the final.

    There is a lot to like about FIFA 11 and fans of the series will no doubt fawn over the multitude of minor improvements. It would be dishonest to ignore the, mostly minor, flaws that are definitely present though. Not that those flaws will spoil many people's enjoyment of the game, they just give the franchise room to improve next year.

    I desperately want to give it a ten purely for its fantastic story, but a fantastic story does not a good game make – it needs the gameplay to back it up and that's where Enslaved falls down in places. What we are left with is a flawed masterpiece, but one that you definitely need to play.

    There's a solid single player here with some stunning set pieces and the clever Tier 1 mode will no doubt see some serious competition down the line. However, the real star appears to be the multiplayer mode, which despite limited playtesting looks to offer an entirely fresh portion of the game.

    The balance of simplicity and depth throughout is impressive and should draw in new players without disappointing old fans of the series.

    Auditorium HD is as pure a game as we've seen on the PlayStation Network: a beautiful, well measured game that's confident in its own concept enough to play off a single idea throughout every level it offers. A little bit raw around the edges, but a wonderful game.

    This latest Need for Speed is the best it's been for years, and although it's naturally not going to be a game for everyone (and up against the juggernaut of Sony's exclusive Gran Turismo 5 next week) anyone looking for a solid racing game this Christmas with a significant emphasis on online competition should find this is well worth investigating, especially if you liked the demo.

    Dead Nation is a polished, enjoyable, undead romp through a world laid waste by an outbreak of nightmarish automatons. With its simple yet effective control system, not to mention a colourful class of foes that can override the screen – and your senses – in their hundreds at any one time, it's a triumphant if admittedly somewhat repetitive jaunt.
