    There’s more than just a love for the source material here; Alien: Isolation also displays a thorough understanding of what made it work. The game is a worthy accompaniment to Ridley Scott’s film, and there are few bigger compliments we can dish out than that.

    Fallout: New Vegas is deeply immersive, hugely engaging and brimming with character and atmosphere. [Issue#65, p.78]

    Quite simply another brilliant title in concept and design. [Issue#67, p.100]

    With a track list that can rival anything on the market, this has captured the essence of Metallica perfectly. An incredible experience for fans. [Issue#45, p.78]

    • 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]

    Wholly entertaining, Blood Dragon chucks everything we didn't like about Far Cry 3 in the bin and cranks everything else we did like up to 11. Then adds lasers. Solid. [Issue #98, p.72]

    The most detailed, realistic, sprawling, long-lasting, and satisfying racing game ever - Eden has actually pulled it off. A must for any high-definition petrolhead; it's absolutely stunning. [Issue 10, p.80]

    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 Behemoth's follow-up to Castle Crashers has been well worth the wait. [Issue#98, p.79]

    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]

    While its other elements hep create atmosphere, they aren't as polished as its peerless gunplay. [Issue#77, p.82]

    Its hidden depths might be too obscure for some, but this is the kind of title XBLA was made for. [Issue#85, p.91]

    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.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    An open-world classic driven by systems over story. [Issue#117, p.76]

    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.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It seems pointless praising a game everyone knows is great, but this version provides a much more stable gaming experience.

    Hot Pursuit's campaign combines a variety of modes with gorgeous graphics and a sublime driving experience. [Issue#66 p.77]
