    Like Mona's fangs, it's sharp, pretty and it doesn't suck. [Issue#15, p.65]
    • 79 Metascore

    Although predictable and clichéd, action and horror have seldom been blended together so sublimely.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Nothing revolutionary, but Red Alert 3 is a colourful, stylish and unabashedly old-school RTS nevertheless. [Issue#13, p.47]
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Saved from relative mediocrity and propelled into the limelight by incredibly realised physics. [Issue#24, p.52]
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A stunning life simulator with a few gaping omissions. It will likely reach boiling point over the next year or so.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A tough be very enjoyable hallucinogenic shooter that's well worth the money. [Issue#15, p.68]
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Shocking, chaotic and uberviolent. For those who can take it, there's a fine game lurking despite the flaws. [Issue#14, p.45]
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Solid block-fitting fun and only a tenner. Classic puzzle action. [Issue#9, p.60]
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A good performance from EA, with FIFA playing a fine game of footy. [Issue#13, p.58]
    • 91 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    This is simply the best superhero game out there and a real treat that shouldn't be missed. [Issue#24, p.45]
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A strategy game that provides more thrills and spills than most. [Issue#10, p.66]
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Great for getting a quick RTS-style fix, it's unadulterated fun, if slightly on the light side. [Issue#13, p.56]
    • 90 Metascore

    It's cheap, 62MB to download. DRM-free and highly addictive. [Issue#14, p.54]
    • 83 Metascore

    Three points for Sports Interactive, with its rivals still nowhere in sight. [Issue#15, p.66]
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It’s a big, polished and fulfilling game and we were impressed by the slick HUD and the right-click radial construction menu, which facilitates a sophisticated economic system. There’s plenty of replay value, fourplayer multiplayer and an editor to boot, too.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It’s no World Of Goo, but it’s original, modifiable and incredibly addictive.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Accessible and addictive mass management entertainment, if a little ugly and ungainly.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An excellent FPS and is easily the best cowboy game on the range. [Issue#22, p.50]
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Not in any way groundbreaking, but two games in one and hugely entertaining nonetheless. [Issue#18, p.52]
    • 67 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A sophisticated, well-paced and remarkably different entry into the RTS genre.
    • 71 Metascore

    Elven Legacy’s main strength is its ability to be either a tactical or RPG-focused game, which both the campaign and single scenarios play to.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Can drag its heels, but provides a great interactive story.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    At around £6 it’s an invigorating addition for Fallout 3 fans.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An impressive shooter with a high degree of polish, but as a PC game it has taken a step back. [Issue#28, p.45]
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Dragon Rising offers compelling real-world combat with few disappointing omissions. [Issue#26, p.50]
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's manifestly amusing and downright fun, and that's its real strength. [Issue#26, p.46]

    A rare and gripping indy experience that pulls no punches.

    Plants Vs Zombies is a simple but clever tower defence game, which uses its considerable charm to keep you coming back for more. It might not take you very long to see most of what it has to offer, but you're sure to have a laugh while you're at it.
