    More of a biking "Project Gotham" than "Forza 2" - which is no bad thing. Thrilling. [Nov 2007, p.82]

    Everything just feels so tight, so slick, so-self assured. Yes, it might take you five minutes to get used to the lightning quick, almost slippery feel to the controls, but when those controls 'grip', you start to realise you're being guided by one of the best.

    Simply, one of the most fun games on 360. Defy those who say it won't sell! [Aug 2007, p.74]

    In stark contrast to the first game, you'll never be at a loss for something to be getting on with. You never feel compelled to do anything by the book and every session you play, you'll find yourself concentrating on a new part of the game, continually getting distracted by something else along the way.

    Not the madden of old but a sober replicant. [Dec 2009, p.89]

    Manages the double whammy of being easier to play and deeper than Live.

    Incredible graphics. [Jan 2011, p.82]

    Whether it's worth adding to your FPS library, however, depends largely on your own multiplayer desires. [May 2011, p.83]

    Unites casual gamers and tennis fanatics in the best game in the series. [June 2011, p.95]

    No forced ending that reeks of a hastily finished game: just a full stop at the end of a seriously good story. [Sept 2007, p.82]

    You may love it, you may hate it, but for those with the skill and dedication, it's a shooter like no other. [Feb 2008, p.72]

    Not a patch on DMC3 but, the moment we finished the game, we played it all over again. It's that good. [Apr 2008, p.78]

    Like this month's "Red Faction," it is an experience proud of its inherently silly gamey-ness; doing for human limbs what Guerrilla does for architecture. Short on frustration, big on satisfaction.

    EA have upped the game when it comes to sports this year. A huge improvement. [Dec 2007, p.85]

    Terrific, original action-RPG that shines despite its ugliness. We're as surprised as you are. [Aug 2010, p.96]

    A stunning adventure for gaming's first lady...which is still far more flawed than it should be. [Jan 2009, p.60]

    The sheer number and variety of scenarios will keep you busy and engrossed for plenty of hours, and the numerous multiplayer options will, hopefully, make for a near-lifetime on the ocean waves.

    The cliche 'game of two halves' normally conjures up images of classic football comebacks, but after staggering through the glaringly uneven single-player campaign in Bad Company 2, twenty-four hours after spending a whole day solidly playing the superb multiplayer component, there's hardly a more apt description of DICE's wannabe CoD-killer. This is all about the online game.

    Co-op? Great. Single-player? Not so much. Not nearly as good as we hoped - but you'll still love it with two. [Apr 2009, p.62]

    Fun, imaginative and eccentric, this is a bold revival of a once moribund franchise and one of the year's bravest, most unexpectedly enjoyable games. [Nov 2011, p.104]

    A deceptively hardcore and thigh-slappingly funny platformer with secrets and challenges galore. [Nov 2011, p.111]

    A smart mix of retro twin-stick shooter and current tech, and a glorious throwback to arcade blasters of olden times. [Christmas 2011, p.111]

    One of the prettiest games you'll ever see and the best air combat going. [Christmas 2007, p.81]
