    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Technically the best game in the series so far, but not as refreshing as Saints Row 2 due to a slight shortage of new ideas. Remains a fun alternative to GTA, though. [Issue#78, p.67]

    An excellent playset, alongside a comprehensive and easy to use Toy Box makes this an essential purchase and proof that Disney really wants to beat the competition.

    Call Of Duty: Ghosts is a familiar experience, but it’s been fine tuned to almost perfection. The multiplayer is the best it’s been in a long time.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Laugh-out-loud stuff. [Issue#52, p.104]

    Compelling. [Issue#62,p.103]

    Typically impenetrable for novices, but it’s a stunning piece of work and with some time spent learning the mechanics makes for an epic sporting experience.

    Nail-biting brinkmanship fought with stones, its counterattacking system is pure, liquid genius. [Issue 26, p.116]

    Gripes about PES prove a modern-day "Princess and the Pea" story. The general excellence of the game's simulation serves to unduly highlight one measly kilobite of pure devil's armpit. [Issue 13, p.96]

    • 80 Critic Score
    A lot of thought as well as another E has gone into Q Entertainment's latest release. [Issue 27, p.117]

    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A humorless and business-like simulation that nevertheless manages to thrill on its own terms. There hasn't been a game like this on a console for a long time. Confidently recommended. [Issue#125, p.78]

    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]

    SteamWorld Dig's ramshackle caverns are a threat to traverse, and while Rusty's underground excursion is over a little too quickly, there are plenty of distractions to be found on the way. [Issue#127, p.84]

    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A classic formula tweaked for greater tactical variety. By and large successful, besides a needed AI tweak or two. [Issue#72, p.86]
