    There's never been a better time to sample one of the greats. Fact. [Issue#23, p.98]

    As a JRPG, The Last Remnant is about as accessible as they come. An amazing battle system is wonderfully combined with an interesting group of characters, an epic storyline and huge amounts of gameplay.

    The value is unquestionable, but Assault on Dark Athena is half the game of its predecessor. A worthy purchase, then, but not an essential one. [Issue#44, p.72]

    We haven't had so much fun with a new Splinter Cell game since 2005's phenomenal Chaos Theory. [Issue#58, p.82]

    More of the same, yet somehow less satisfying than its predecessor. While this makes scoring easy, we can't help but wonder were the series will go from here. [Issue#25, p.76]

    There's so much going for Darksiders that it deserves to be played by many. [Issue#55, p.90]

    It's just finally captured the skill and fortitude that comes with playing a real game of tennis, an achievement we sense it's always been working towards. [Issue#34, p.90]

    There’s a lot to love in Mirror’s Edge, times when it reaches potential game of the year material, times when mind, body and control come together to create something almost euphoric on screen. But when that transcendence is shattered by a poorly designed combat section or a moment of utter confusion, it leaves a bitter taste. Kudos, then, for EA’s commitment to new IP, but it’s one that ironically, leaves us wanting a sequel.

    This is platform bliss, pure and simple. [Issue#24, p.100]

    We just cannot deny its addictiveness, nor its ability to draw us into the next battle. [Issue 27, p.116]

    It’s a tenner cheaper than C&C 3 (good on yer EA) on account of the fact that it didn’t cost as much to make, being an extension of the first game. If you liked C&C 3, Kane’s Wrath comes highly recommended.

    A more than worthy update to last year's blip. No b-ball fan will be disappointed with this. [Issue#25, p.100]

    A very pleasant surprise. Accomplished way beyond our expectations and some of the best fun we’ve had inside a videogame this year, Saints Row 2 says nay to the naysayers.

    A festival of both passing and movement, which is probably appreciated best by fans of the series. Pro Evo just - and we mean just - manages to trump "FIFA." [Issue 26, p.80]

    Has some invigorating moments but is harmed by a weak strategy mechanic that easily frustrates. [Issue#52, p.82]

    The traditional approach will put off as many as it pleases, but Lost Odyssey is a cracking RPG which looks great, plays better, and is genuinely affecting. [Apr 2008, p.80]

    This is top-quality shooter fare, blessed with visuals bright enough to be pleasing on the eye, yet not garish enough for bullets to be easily obscured. [Issue#29, p.119]

    Pure takes racing all the way back to basics and emphasizes fun over complexity yet still incorporates enough depth to have some serious longevity. Excellent stuff. [Issue#37, p.86]

    Crazy acting, crazy units and a crazy story but the gameplay is solid and the visuals are highly stylised. A great edition to the Red Alert series.

    Flashbacks make this a thrilling racer, but they wear thin after a while and take their toll on the racing. As a result, we love Race Driver: GRID as much as we hate it, which is quite a lot! [Issue#33]

    Red Faction: Guerrilla is a fantastic, laudably fun tech demo funneled into a rather awesome game. Undoubtedly this year's most gratifying and original title so far. [Issue#46, p.76]

    In its own ragged way, Alpha Protocol takes a more sophisticated approach to its plot than Mass Effect or Dragon Age. [Issue#60, p.88]

    Along with the redefined tag team matches, Road To Wrestlemania and create-a-finisher, the multiple tweaks and touches make this the best SmackDown for a while.

    With some really innovative gameplay, exciting missions, fantastic set pieces, and the overall lack of competition, H.A.W.X. is probably the best game in its genre. [MC Issue#43, p.88]
