    It seems that Moto GP 4 really does have something for everyone – assuming everyone has an interest in racing, of course.

    Just another average platformer, and by no means goes any further.

    There's nothing cripplingly wrong with It's Mr Pants - far from it. But it's basically a simple case of the sum of its parts not reaching its true potential.

    The gameplay is a chore, the story is unoriginal and the characters are as annoying as tooth ache. And the ‘it’s for kids’ angle is insulting to anyone who considers themselves a kid, including the over 16 kids.

    While the incredibly stylish graphics will be the initial draw, you’ll stick around for one of the greatest examples of pure gameplay this side of the aforementioned "Katamari Damacy."

    What San Andreas does is take every element from the previous two games and amplifies it. Everything good about the series has become even better, while the bad aspects have become mind-numbingly dire.

    Don’t expect to complete Imperial Glory anytime soon; like a good book, you’ll have to invest your time, but you’re repaid with a great reward.

    For the love of Lucas, buy Lego Star Wars instead.

    The simple fact is Enthusia is simply a simulation of life, but has little life itself.

    But all the dazzling gameplay, and stunning aesthetics can’t hide the fact that Hot Shots Golf simply isn’t truly designed for handheld play.

    You really need to invest a huge amount of time to reach the depths of this racer, and whilst it is gloriously fulfilling and rewarding, few have such time to spare.

    Not a single portion of the game, be it graphics, storyline, sound, or AI manages to live up to the standards we've come to expect from the FPS genre.

    The problem with Forza is, however, that this is a game that feels somewhat empty. Your victories aren't celebrated and are barely acknowledged. Tuning up a car is so easy that is barely feels rewarding to feel it going at top speed.

    The reliance of slow, methodical tactical play rather than letting things become a case of who can click their mouse button the fastest is implemented at an incredibly solid level, with very little to complain about.

    It’s the sort of game you’d find yourself playing while on hold during a telephone call, or waiting for your computer to load - just like how you’d probably find yourself doodling if there was paper and a pen next to you instead of your DS.

    A bad video game- resting on laurels established four years ago. New features that allow you to buy up and build on captured land do little but add a fleeting distraction.

    The melee combat works well, and we're sure any future Unreal titles will feel lightweight without it-but as an experience, The Liandri Conflict is often a little too overwhelming.

    Real time combat is simultaneously both Jade Empire's greatest achievement and its biggest flaw. When it works, it's more satisfying than any role playing game on the market. This is marred, however, by a dodgy camera and flawed upgrade system.

    A thrilling, entertaining racer that's sadly lacking polish. Worth a look, nonetheless.

    It is the best survival horror title I’ve played, if not the scariest game. It is quite humorous to watch, doesn’t take itself too seriously, and what’s more allows for two player co-op play and much dying.

    In the end, the acid test for a remake such as this really has to be whether you’d rather play it over the original. Sadly, even at a budget price, there’s little here worth your time, let alone your cash, meaning that we’d take the NES or C64 version every time.

    It's all one big corridor, with the same enemies starting out in the same place each time you hit 'retry'.

    But Doom 3 not only manages to scare and surprise you at every step, but also pushes you along at a terrifying rate, leaving you eagerly anticipating what the developers are going to put you up against once you turn the next corner. And that, at least, is a feeling that other FPS games should try to emulate.

    Yes it’s shorter than an Ewok and easier than the dancer with the six tits in Jabba’s Palace, but it’s a jam-packed Death Star of replayable fun - and whether you’re six or sixty, isn’t that everything you could ever dare hope for in a game?

    In the end, it feels more like an after pub game than one that you'd spend a whole summer mastering. Simple, easy and ultimately boring, you should pick it up for a fiver if you can.

    The only aspect of the game that the developers have neglected to improve is the enemy AI, who remain as simple as ever before and can be lead like well armed, extremely dangerous sheep to the slaughter.

    It isn’t finished for a start: while the game functions, there are way too many bugs, and they often hinder your progress whilst running missions. It’s been a just over a month since MxO’s release and it appears that Monolith are still struggling to get it running smoothly. "There’s a glitch in the Matrix" indeed.

    While the game will not appeal to fans of more serious, focused shooters, and the Story is still not quite up to scratch, this game is still highly recommended thanks to some excellent humour and the top-class multiplayer.

    You’ll be impressed by the Act of War’s destructible landscape, you’ll laugh at the ridiculous acting and you’ll yelp with a sick joy as your snipers pick off enemy commandos hidden in the undergrowth.
    • 68 Metascore

    A solid, if a little unspectacular survival horror title. While the “fear factor” may be a touch below the sheer terror instilled, there’s still many a moment where your feel a little nervous as to what you’ll witness next.
