    Assault Heroes will leave you giddy with its freewheeling, high-score chasing bliss. [Issue # 16, p.114]

    The most accomplished, perfectly balanced and dazzlingly polished fighting game ever made - but watch out, it punishes infidels unwilling to invest the time to learn the 'art.' [Issue#25, p.88]

    While it’s easy to say that it’s not so great offline, Left 4 Dead is supposed to be played with friends and when you do it’s hard to find any flaws. Very fun, very slick and very dead.

    A genius concept thanks to exploding sheep, homing missiles, air strikes and Street Fighter special moves. [Issue 19, p.116]

    Incomparable to the pure fear that accompanies "Rainbow Six Vegas 2" and more akin to taking part in a sport than a war, Unreal Tournament III is the most accessible and technical shooter available, and it’s near impossible to fault it.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Beautifully paced and with the sort of gothic visuals that would scare Marilyn Manson. [Issue 19, p.116]

    A dream come true for music fans and gamers alike. If you've recently won the lottery, it's a must-buy. [Issue#29, p.88]

    Finishing the game actually burnt out the pleasure centres of our brain. We're unable to enjoy anything else in life now and instead spend our time wallowing in misery. [Issue#29, p.74]

    A huge crowd appeared the second we turned Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix on. [Issue#40, p.115]

    • 90 Critic Score
    Repetitive and relatively simple perhaps, but when it's fundamental gratification you're after, Burnout Paradise doesn't go far wrong. A worthy challenger to the likes of "Forza 2," "PGR 4" and "ProStreet." [Issue#29, p.82]

    The game is bloody marvellous, but we'd rather have a finite number of enemies if it's all the same to you. [Issue 26, p.70]

    We kid you not, ProStreet is arguably the best driving game yet...A game of extraordinary brilliance.[Issue 26, p.82]

    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    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.

    The greatest Guitar Hero yet. Amazing songs, phenomenal gameplay, and it's online too! [Issue 27, p.86]

    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A furiously successful RPG and FPS combination that doesn't fall short on either front. [Issue#52, p.86]

    It’s great to see a developer building on its original game with such love and care. One of our favourite shooters in living memory.

    Find a comfy armchair, arm yourself with fizzy sweets and pretend you're eight again. [Issue 26, p.116]

    There’s very little to denounce Dead Space with. It captures you completely with chilling suspense and leaves you feeling thoroughly thrilled. What can we say? Bring on a sequel!

    The simple creativity it showed in blending the player's virtual action into the fabric of each level's trance soundtrack was a breath of fresh air in a world where 'rhythm action' mean "PaRappa" or "Dancing Stage." [Issue#30, p.120]

    Its mixture of razor-sharp design and old-school joy make this as close to a must-buy as you're likely to come. [Issue#31, p.116]

    Nuts & Bolts is a fantastically fun game. It may threaten to overcomplicate itself from time to time, but it’s impossible to play and not come out with a smile on your face.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The gameplay you’ve come to know and love is better than it ever has been and the new additions are downright fantastic. Another step up for the now veteran franchise.

    Rock Band 2 includes substantial improvements and a better setlist over its predecessor, making it the must-own music game for the 360. [Issue#39]

    In truth, FIFA was pushing an eight last time around, so to award this significant jump anything other than a nine would be absolute cruelty. As they say, bravo.

    Unless you’re particularly unsportsmanlike when it comes to multiplayer sessions with your mates, bludgeoning a man unconscious on your 360 doesn’t get any more realistic than this.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A truly fine sequel and one that goes beyond the original. If you’re looking for a game that represents skating in a genuine and authentic way, Skate 2 will serve your every need.
