    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]

    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]

    An intense racing atmosphere hides behind controls that demand your full attention and patience. Once mastered though, fantastic track design tips the scales from "good" to "great." [Issue 8, p.90]

    With further add-ons and weapons to play around with, such as hover guns, tractor beams and point-to-point gravity pull, there's a lot of fun to be had. [Issue # 16, p.114]

    As a high-octane action game this is among the best in recent memory. Everything it does falls just the right side of ludicrously fun, so that it's hard to really criticize anything too harshly...Only the tiniest of niggles drag what is an excellent game back to earth. [Issue#56, p.77]

    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.

    The 'big' new mode is pointless and instantly forgettable, but the rest of the game is as solid and cocksure as ever. [Issue#70, p.84]
