    The elements of the story are certainly nothing inspiring but chuck in simply awesome graphics, cool dynamics and a cracking good time to be had while killing the bad guys, you've got a game that is a total blast and more fun than is feasibly possible.

    It's extremely funny but at the same time littered with dark moments as your Locos are attacked by nasty black spikey things from your childhood nightmares.

    Prey stands out for a number of excellent reaons even if the portal hopping and gravity-swapping can get a bit confusing.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A surprisingly competent simulation.
    • 78 Metascore

    Budding directors will find a great deal to get their teeth into here, and shouldn’t hesitate to pick this expansion up.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    There isn't an annoying or bewildering array of modes because Rockstar had a single-minded ambition to create a game you play with your mates. Play the training modules if you like, but you won't need them. It's that good.

    GRAW is sadly flawed but despite these flaws is terrific fun to play. It's wildly addictive as you try and work out the best way through and once you've gotten used to your useless team (we had a team member throw himself under a moving APC..that's talent) it's an excellent tactical shooter.

    Occasionally the game can seemingly freeze for around 1/4 of a second when driving. It doesn't happen often, and the game quickly gets back to racing with minimal gameplay impact.

    Certainly, anyone who enjoys the idea of exploring vast, beautiful environments and leaping from the edge of one perilous chasm to another will get a lot out of this game.

    TT has been three years in the making and you can't fault its beautiful looks and attention to accuracy.
    • 75 Metascore

    Seeing sequences like these play out from different angles is satisfying, and, although none of the new sequences are official write-ins from Mario Puzo or Ford Coppola, they fit perfectly in terms of tone and maturity.

    This is a game that really benefits from its electronic transformation – it is far superior to its paper and pen counterpart. And this is coming from a self-confessed techno-phobe.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    This is an enormous world that will leave you enchanted, occasionally regretting your decisions, sometimes proud and always enthralled.

    Don’t let the sour taste left by "Driv3r" put you off. Parallel Lines doesn’t re-invent the wheel, but what it does, it does very well.
    • 89 Metascore

    As with the incredible "Black," Criterion keep proving they know how to make a game.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 35 Critic Score
    It is worth noting, just finally, that die-hard fans will get to meet Mike Hagger and Guy from the original Final Fight, but even these cameos don’t justify playing this game.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    EA have delivered a superb-looking game but unfortunately the gooey, cumbersome controls have let the game down badly.

    Street Fighter Alpha 3 MAX is vintage, but it’s extremely good looking even to this day, and for Street Fighter fans, the gameplay will never get old.
    • 85 Metascore

    There was a time when Dead or Alive was the poor man’s Tekken, Soul Calibur or Virtua Fighter, but in some regards, particularly where environmental and visual quality is concerned, the series has taken the lead.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It outguns just about every other console shooter currently on the market.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    There’s not a great deal of replay value beyond unlocking a few achievements by completing the game with a number of different restrictions, but for the ten or so hours it lasts, it’s one hell of a ride.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It shows what the console can do by looking absolutely gorgeous where some other games have failed miserably to do so.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The police chases add a great deal to the game, and it’s refreshing to be racing in the daylight for a change. If you’re looking for a fast, high adrenaline racer and you like the idea of running from the cops, Most Wanted might be the game for you.

    It’s remarkable that Luxoflux, developer of True Crime: New York City, managed to take such a huge step backwards in the three years since the release of the first game.

    Gun
    Despite its short length, it’s a hugely enjoyable, polished game, and one that’s easy to recommend to anyone interested in the subject matter.

    Kameo is a real extravaganza. It looks gorgeous, whether viewed in high definition or not. Every frame is thick with graphical flourish.

    It’s not that Big Red One is a bad game – it’s enjoyable for as long as it lasts – but there are much more entertaining, value-packed titles available.
    • 96 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    This is not just the best survival horror game yet; it's one of the best games of this generation. Every aspect of the game shines.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    To stick so closely to the first game was probably a mistake that is bound to hit sales. It almost feels like an expansion pack, sort of a follow-up to "United Offensive."
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    A decent arcade racing game where fun is the aim and destruction is the game; and this title should definitely be able to stand among the other games on the shelf.
