    Crisp, manic, gorgeous and invigorating at times, Forza 5 is as accomplished as ever technically. Drivatar is the only real innovation, and car numbers are lower, but it’s an incredible opening act on Xbox One.

    There are a few frustrations, but with so many characters, side-missions, collectables, puzzles, laughs, unlockables and cheeky nods to both casual fans and super-buffs, this is one LEGO title you won’t want to miss.

    Effortlessly demonstrates Telltale's handle on episodic content. [Issue#105, p.84]

    While only minor additions to the game, Enemy Within somehow manages to make the greatest console turn-based strategy game even better. [Issue#105, p.88]

    We may have to wait until FIFA 15 before we get to play a truly next-gen game of football, but EA still went above and beyond here. An Xbox One essential.

    Endearing and satisfying. [Issue#107, p.70]

    Only for the bold, Dark Souls II delivers a fearsome challenge, while dispensing with the complexity that bogged down its predecessor. A true triumph of game design.

    Fun, frustrating and incredibly well designed, this is the perfect game to see you through the summer next-gen drought.

    • 80 Critic Score
    Categorically unsure of its place in the world, Alan Wake is absorbing for its duration. Depending on your tastes, this may confuse, but Remedy has created a genuinely intriguing experience. [Issue#59, p.92]

    Just don't spend much time on your own, as those cheating AI bastards will make your blood boil. [Issue#6, p.98]

    A slow start soon gives way to some exciting action. [Issue#5, p.90]

    A worthy continuation of a superb series that is unfortunately over way too quickly. When a game is this great you simply don't want it to finish. [Issue 13, p.82]

    It's easy to forget the most important aspect of any game should be thta it's entertaining, and Medal of Honor is. Sit back, warm up your trigger-finger and enjoy - that is the point after all. [Issue#24, p.70]

    A fine blaster. [Issue#23, p.97]

    Plenty of strategic meat on its 3D bone. [Issue#5, p.120]

    An arcade classic. [Issue#23, p.96]

    It's simple to play, easy to learn, absolutely impossible to complete. [Issue #7, p.120]

    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's not worth getting for single-player. The AI is broken in a way that it will react and counter your moves by having the instant reaction times only an unthinking machine can have. [Issue #7, p.120]

    Forget preconceptions - Table Tennis is king. While it may be a little empty in terms of structural depth, the hugely addictive gameplay more than makes up for it. Don't let it pass you by. [Issue 7, p.90]

    With buckets of replayability and a big heart to match, Rare has finally come good and delivered a belter of a game. Wipes away rancid memories of "Perfect Dark" and makes you smile inside. [Issue 14, p.78]

    Almost like "GTA" without any of the character. For these short bursts of satisfaction alone this is more than worth getting - however, don't be surprised when you end up switching off halfway through a mission and start praying that "Mercenaries 2" will fill the hole. [Issue # 11, p.80]

    • 82 Metascore

    Blood Money manages to strike a perfect balance between compelling and complex. While not the 'next-gen' experience we expected, it certainly delivers in terms of pure enjoyment. [Issue 7, p.84]

    There is no other sports sim out there that can beat Virtua Tennis 3 for entertainment value. [Issue 18, p.86]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Simple on the surface, yet with almost endless replay value, and most definitely worthy of the great name it has inherited. [Issue#25, p.80]

    An invigorating blast of pure gameplay and an impressive addition to Bizarre Creation's track record. Definitely a fun way to pass the time. [Issue#29, p.80]

    Not likely to win any new fans to the series but seasoned players should be satisfied. [Issue 14, p.94]

    If skateboard antics are your sort of thing, the refinements made will make this right up your alley. [Issue 14, p.92]

    A solid success story for Realtime Worlds. Crackdown initially offers all kinds of wonders, but skim off the top and it becomes a teaser of what could've been or is possible. [Issue 17, p.85]
