    The seamless collaboration of sight and sound, storytelling and fast paced game play gell with the animations, physics, and environment interaction to make for the most suspenseful, gripping and action packed FPS game ever made.

    Awe-inspiring graphics, cutting edge 3D sound, fantastic artwork and level design, stunning character models and animations, sexy sfx, admirable AI, intuitive interface and top notch story and voice acting. A good fleshy single-player FPS experience – the best in years, if not ever.

    Due to the numerous AI difficulty settings and the broad range of gameplay variables coupled with a solid, lengthy single player campaign, FarCry is one game that can boast a major re playability value.

    Combining an authentic look, sound and feel with a simple interface and innovative game play mechanics, this game is a tough act to follow. Not only is Call of Duty the new leader of the pack when it comes to WW2 based FPS games, it is also clearly one of the best FPS games available, period.

    It's been a while since the community has had a good fleshy Deathmatch game to sink their teeth into, and UT2004 is exactly that and so much more. It just feels like the right game at precisely the right time.

    Not only is Max Payne 2 a truly befitting follow up, it also represents the epitome of what was so attractive about the original. It builds upon cinematic qualities and game play mechanics, improving upon both and fusing them together to near perfection. The storyline has been developed beautifully, and it's deliverance is once again, unique.

    Not only are bugs being fixed but extra creatures, vehicles, game play and locations are always being added. I will never have finished exploring the SWG worlds.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The only truly outstanding aspect of the game is the scope and ambition of the game, which it pulls off just as competently as it's predecessor. It's close resemblance to the original works both for it and against it.

    Making better use of lightsaber combat and offering a lot more of it, this game does a better job of making the player feel like a Jedi Knight. The extra acrobatic and combat manuevers give veterans something new to learn, whilst adding to the already impressive arsenal of available skills for newbies to get busy with.

    Even with it's absolutely gorgeous maps and great physics this game lacks any type of real challenge in the story. It is a straight out FPS with only mindless monsters to kill over and over again.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 69 Critic Score
    Despite how much it improves on the original, this game could and should have been so much more. Because 3 years have passed, Elite Force 2 is a breath of fresh air for any trekkie, but also because three years have passed, it’s not quite fresh enough to gain the accolades of the original.

    Despite offering plenty of gameplay, it lacks depth and more importantly, soul. Chrome is a fun game, but doesn't do anything that some other game has done before it, and done it better at that.

    Whilst it doesn’t fully succeed at everything it attempts to do (which is a lot), the driving aspect is good fun overall and if not anything else, offers everyone an educational and safer, if not sensationalized tour of L.A, with plenty of cool music to listen to in the process.
