    BioSchock is amazing. Not only are its visuals, music, sound, gameplay and plot superb, but it's highly polished and runs beautifully on the 360 without any noticeable drop in frame rate. [Issue 23, p.70]

    Don’t let the lack of a third dimension fool you. Street Fighter IV is possibly the best beat-’em-up ever made. A must-have.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Vast, epic, engaging, absorbing, terrifying, horrific, amusing and thoroughly brilliant. Fallout 3 is easily one of the best games ever made and one that deserves and needs to be played.
    • 95 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    A truly spectacular sequel that reaches previously unthinkable heights. Portal 2 is an experience to be cherished and already a strong contender for the best game of 2011. [Issue#72, p.78]

    Lost and Damned is an absolute behemoth of an expansion, providing a fresh perspective on the same city and setting a devilishly high standard for DLC in the future.
    • 98 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    A fantastic, life-affirming piece of software that has set a new standard for what the medium can achieve, with a magnificent multiplayer mode to boot. If all games were this good, no one would ever leave the house. [Issue#33, p.84]

    • 100 Critic Score
    A game of such rare emotion that we became attached to our characters to the point of missing them now it's all over. [Issue 27, p.76]

    • 81 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    We can't think of a more complete package to spend our virtual pounds upon. [Issue#29, p.116]

    A masterclass in design. Brutal, epic, beautiful and harrowing in equal measure, Gears Of War 2 announces Epic’s reign as the king of the action videogame. Absolutely essential.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    A study in pure, unadulterated excellence.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Unsullied by over-complication and masterfully focused, Gears of War aims to offer the most bang per buck yet seen in a videogame, and we're glad to say it does just that. [Issue 14, p.72]

    A Batman game like never before. Fans will feel like they're dreaming, whereas everyone else has an incredibly large and in-depth world to enjoy and engage with. It doesn't get much better. [Issue#78, p.80]

    Both an astonishing RPG and confident shooter, Mass Effect 2 is daring, shocking and often awe-inspiring in its use of choice. This is the future of storytelling in videogames. [Issue#, p.85]

    GTA V is funny, genuinely laugh out loud funny – and not in a ’shoving a ten-inch purple dildo up your arse’ funny – the humour is told through situation, through incredibly clever writing and wonderful sense of place. Really, that says everything you need to know about GTA V. Rockstar has spent five years, and an insane amount of money, building a game that is not only bold enough to step away from expectation, but brave enough to revel in its combined history as well.

    Titanfall is a ridiculous amount of fun. Maybe it’ll be surpassed, but right now it’s the best game on Xbox One and one of the best multiplayer shooters ever.
    • 96 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    The Orange Box offers more value for money than any RPG package in history. Valve and EA could have charged through the nose, but wisely kep it honest. It's the best ?50 you'll ever spend. [Issue#25, p.39]

    It’s just a great game tying to be even better. In some cases it works, in other cases it doesn’t. But, ultimately, if the idea of playing a superior version of one of the best games of all time appeals to you (and why wouldn’t it?) then this is a more than worthy excuse for a double-dip.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A furiously successful RPG and FPS combination that doesn't fall short on either front. [Issue#52, p.86]

    Mass Effect 3's job is one of refinement, and BioWare polishes its ideas to a mirror sheen. [Issue#83, p.72]

    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Moment on moment action is outstanding, boss battles some of the most hectic and awesome we’ve seen in years and the presentation – from the bonkers cut-scenes to the brilliantly eclectic evolving soundtrack – is top-notch.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Point-and-click gaming at its very best. Ignore it at your own stupidity. [Issue#49, p.102]

    • 90 Critic Score
    Horizon sacrifices purity for spectacle, trades tuning depth for racing equality and shifts to an open road setting where once were trackside barriers and preset circuits, though none of this detracts from the glorious driving mechanics that Playground Games has superbly re-created under the watchful eye of Turn 10.
    • 96 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Easily in line for a game of the year nod and one of the finest adventures this generation has seen. [Issue#79, p.64]

    The really great thing, however, is the character creation mode. Honestly, it’s brilliant, and about as close to a real character creation as we’ve ever seen.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    SCV's great mix of spectacle, accessibility and depth make it a fun fighting game that almost anyone with an interest in the genre can enjoy. [Issue #81, p.88]
