    The characters are memorable, the dialogue is sharp, and the puzzles (when they’re original) are usually pretty entertaining.

    Has a great fun factor that allows for hours of online battles with your friends and enemies –despite the lack of true Vietnam grit.

    Space shooter games are a very specialized taste, but if you get it, it’s very hard to lose the taste and Gradius V has enough variety in it to absorb new players to this genre.

    Choro Q is delicious sugar coated fun for the child deep down, or not so deep down, in everyone. Just don’t attempt to drive a real car any time after playing it, the urge to speed past other cars is almost to strong to ignore.

    A refreshingly devious action game long overdue in the sea of 3-D platformers and first person shooters.
    • 84 Metascore

    The story is not as gripping as Halo or Splinter Cell, but it’s a solid, workmanlike script that has you suspending your disbelief for just long enough to get you through the game.

    You'll find Otogi a varied and challenging affair, meriting replay after replay, continue after continue.

    Driving tasks are fun but the on-foot missions are much more entertaining. If you can stomach the glitchy camera, lock and load for a truly epic and cinematic gaming experience.

    Vicious Cycle did an excellent job in recreating the comic in a video game, too bad there's only one safe house to spawn from.

    Indeed, Return From Darkness is what Wrath of Heaven should have been when it was first released.

    With detailed graphics, incredible difficulty, and improved classic gameplay, this title should sit on any game veteran's shelf.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    Even if you don't know how to play the game, the rules are easily picked up and gameplay is relatively smooth and quite fun –however, if you wish to advance your play, invent set moves and plays then the game can become much more enjoyable for the advanced player.

    Overall, with a few points taken off for conflicts between graphics and gameplay, Disgaea is pretty fun.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    The game's A.I. seems a bit lacking as well, primarily in the way that no one really seems to care whether or not Alex blatantly relieves them of their material wealth and/or rather expensive supplies and weaponry.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    The quirky nature of this game is its strongest point. Evil games are great, but evil games with a little humour are even better.
    • 72 Metascore

    This game can be very short; about 15 hours tops. It’s a joy to watch, though, and serves as a quick fix for those in need of some shiny action.
    • 72 Metascore

    The omission of Live play is unfortunate, as being able to duel your friends, or take on co-operative missions would have added an extra depth to the overall experience and added to the replayability of the game.

    Although some aspects may not shock you in amazement, there is a lot of fun to be had here.

    This game rewards and encourages teamwork and the multiplayer team games can really bring some exciting gaming to your Xbox. Definitely something to look out for if you play clan games.

    Ty 2's uncomplicated game play, straightforward story, and friendly quality create a fun experience for younger gamers and could provide a couple of hours distraction for older players.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    An addictive action RPG that just falls short of the mark due to sheer difficulty, linear game play and the lack of multiplayer options.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    Sadly, the graphics and presentation are the only defining features of the title. Once completed, there's very little reason to play through again and the game is not exactly long to begin with.

    It is intended for those of us who found humor in this summer's comedy film, "Dodgeball": if you like crass-but-sarcastic-and-witty humor, you can't go wrong.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    Though the tired ramblings of the characters and classic game plot aren't the most original, it does faithfully honor its western theme.

    Low-level players have very little guidance if they can’t form relationships with other people or clans. They will be lost and confused.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    Instead of following the tried-but-not-always-true formulas often found in fantasy RPGs, it manages to save itself by being nothing but irreverent and just a little bit rude.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    The puzzles all have a reason for being there that is directly related to the story, which is definitely a major plus.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    The action can and will get repetitive, and playing the game through more than twice has very little appeal.

    For all its faults, Sega GT Online is a good arcade racer -whilst the likes of TOCA and Project Gotham go for simulation, Sega GT gives you an old-fashioned (and some would say out-dated) arcade feel.

    There is something about the way Kain walks, the way he fights, and the way he looks at things that conveys the elegant grace only contained in the lithe movements of a predator.

    The meat (ahem) of the game is quite fun. It's the fist fights, the repetition, and camera problems that plague it enough to keep it from being more then average.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It seems unfortunate that the game’s strength depends on its weakness to gain lifespan, and while the Chess and Puzzle games are amusing, the core fighting element of the game is where most gamers will be directing their attention.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Not a realistic racer, the details of physics aren’t there, and some of the reactions the car makes are not accurate to say the least. But we don’t think that matters, NFSU2 is a great, loveable game which, taken at face value – a fun-filled racing game – is great fun and enjoyable to play and progress through, if you’re in Career Mode.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The story is great, the mystery is intense, and the protagonists are extremely likable. As a result, we found ourselves liking the game a lot in spite of its occasional shortcomings... all the more noticeable as they are because they interrupt what is otherwise a brilliant game.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Although the gameplay is confusing and disorientating, the game as a whole is a nice package. It has great presenation with a simple, straightfoward interface, and the overall atmosphere gives off a nice world domination feeling.

    Great fun, but could have been better.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    This hard work, however, is denigrated by the repetition of character models throughout the entire game.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Direct correlation to the movie, plus a few added extras, will give you the feeling that you are a part of the action, and using the dual controls to the fullest, this game won't leave you feeling terminated.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A flawed attempt at mimicking the movie. The presentation is spot on and the characterization is fantastic.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A mixed bag of tricks. It's a good game with an above average tale to tell, and that just about keeps it afloat above those niggling game play faults.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The main positives going for Destroy All Humans are its enjoyable action sequences, but these are alienated by, what are in nature, dismal fetch and find missions that lack the originality that the game was trying to deliver in the first place.

    Gun
    If you want to compare GUN to GTA, it's fair to say that it doesn't reach the level of enjoyment found in the GTA games mainly because the missions push you forward a little too much and you don't get the chance to explore as much as you might want to do.

    Probably the worst Star Fox game released to date – but that doesn't necessarily make it an irredeemably bad game. It is still a shame, however, to see that Star Fox: Assault has been in development for about three years and this is the result.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    Our final issue with the game is that, there is no variety in what you are doing each level changes your location, immersing you into another lush environment, but the aim is always the same; whatever Helghan party you come across – kill them and move on.

    And although the rigid gameplay is frustrating at times, taking on a mystery in the shoes of Mr. Holmes and Dr. Watson has a certain appeal that is hard not to deny.
    • 75 Metascore

    The animation is fantastic, but there’s not enough of it. The storyline is serviceable, but doesn’t really offer anything new.
    • 86 Metascore

    It may be fast and furious but it’s not the best.

    Perhaps the next time around, we will be surprised when we go in expecting to control a killing machine and instead find a deep (and/or deeply disturbed) man in our hands. Perhaps not. Hopefully, it will just be a little more memorable than this.

    Flat textures are still flat textures, however they are dolled-up -but at least Ubisoft have attempted to make the whole experience an immersion in a politically-charged, adult-oriented, comic book world.

    The graphics are purty, the control is decent, the voice acting isn't half bad, and the story's even pretty good. And two player co-op, come on! What more do you people want?

    The biggest problem with Musashi Samurai Legend is the same problem that’s plagued a lot of Square-Enix’s recent titles: it just isn’t nearly as fun as it feels like it should be.

    If you're looking for a playable version of the classic 1967 episode, “Mirror Mirror”, then Shattered Universe is the game for you. However, if you’re merely looking for a good time with the Star Trek Franchise then you would probably be better served to rent Star Trek IV on DVD.

    This is by no means a real fighting game, it lacks combos, character depth and added storyline features and cut scenes, which could have potentially created a stunner, but overall, it's a fun –but limited- game.
    • 57 Metascore

    A solid -yet flawed- 'Nam game and clearly a lot of time has been spent researching and analysing the period -but at the expense of graphics and AI.

    There is an element of comedy in Scaler and it is very welcome -it does lack the wittiness of, say, Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door, but it does make the game that much more enjoyable.

    If instead you only have a passing interest in all things water-based, it may be better to visit the rental store for a quick blast before parting with your twenty notes – definitely try it online though.

    The plot itself makes THUG both the best and worst game with a Tony Hawk label. While having a central story is a refreshing change of pace to the series, but to say that the plot is weak is a huge understatement.

    The essence of a good FPS is there it just doesn’t have that old Unreal or Half-life polish. Don’t get us wrong, it has its enjoyable moments, but it’s more than a little lacking in polish.

    As a whole, Call of Duty: Finest Hour feels like it was poorly assembled with shoddy A.I. and lacklustre graphics. Couple that with short, uninteresting missions and main characters that you couldn't care less about, and you have a game that may be worth a day's play but is a title that you wouldn't want to in your own library.

    It is worth noting that Headhunter: Redemption is tough - whether that is down to problems with the game’s mechanics and controls or a deliberate design choice is up to you, but this game took endless hours to get through with many restarts and countless yells of fury.
