    An amazing amount of fun but it doesn’t just rely on its novelty to carry it - it’s actually a good game and in the early missions at least has a good pick-up-and-play element.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    In terms of sheer fun, ease of use and online integration, it's now the racer to beat on any system.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Put away your social calendar strategy fans - this game will eat out months out of your life.

    The fantasy world created for the game features plenty of detail, with some of the environments players must traverse looking absolutely fantastic.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Realistic graphics, a real sense of speed and tight controls all add up to Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition being a flat-out adrenalin rush of a game.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Those looking for an excellent mix of first person action and squad-based tactics will find SWAT 4's extremely realistic and involving gameplay hard to beat.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    Chaos Theory takes the best aspects of the previous games and makes them shine even more. Splinter Cell veterans won't find too many new additions, but newbies and vets alike should snap it up as it's the best game in the series so far.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    God of War is a stylish, gory and challenging action game that rewards you for skill and persistence. One of the best action titles to be released on the PlayStation 2 so far.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    That killer axe is just one of the many weapons you'll get to take on hell's minions, and epitomises the game succinctly - oh-so stylish, over the top and yet fiendlishly difficult to master.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Not only does it feature great gameplay, but it offers up a virtual documentary of the World War II D-Day landings thanks to its attention to realism and fascinating added extras.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    And while GT4 is not the massive leap from GT3 some were expecting, the sheer depth and variety of cars and tracks, great physics model and outstanding extras make it by far the best car game available on any system.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Shows some potential, but an unpolished execution and an overall sluggish feel means it's for die-hard "Tekken" fans only.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    An outstanding gaming experience that sucks you into its expansive storyline.
    • 96 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    Simply extraordinary. It’s clear from the start that Valve have pulled out all the stops, resulting in a well polished game that’s graphically spectacular.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Its excellent production and genuinely unsettling atmosphere make other so-called horror games look about as scary as Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video.
    • 95 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    The best game on the PS2.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An old-school racer with an immense amount of charm, although we'd still recommend "Burnout 3" in favour of it -- just.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    For the first five minutes you'll be bowled over by all the action on offer, scarcely being given time to breathe in. Once you start to remember the patterns of where the enemies come out -- and being a light gun title on, as they say, rails, they never vary a jot -- the fun quickly fades.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Forget the bogged realism of "Call of Duty" or "Conflict Vietnam"; Tribes: Vengeance is all about big guns, big mecha suits, and big explosions. If you're after some intense fighting with gung-ho madness, then it’s good to get some Vengeance.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    A fine sequel, although if you've had your fix of Hawk before, you may not find enough that's genuinely new here to warrant a purchase.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One for the fans. Even though it is an "all-in-one" package of games, the Arcade Kombat mode remains the centre of attention.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    As a micromanagement/god sim, it makes a fair effort with its source material, although you'll often find yourself bogged down in petty details, and it can lose a bit of charm in its eventual endgame phase.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A solid but unspectacular boxing game that doesn't try enough that's new or innovative to raise it to championship status.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A great movie adaptation and very good choice for younger gamers -- or anyone who needs a Christmas present for a younger gamer in a hurry.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    A sumptuously detailed and totally engrossing RTS title that can even hook those who normally aren't fans of RTS titles.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    While it's an ambitious title -- especially for the Gameboy Advance -- that attempts to cram in every last Luke-related minute of the classic Star Wars trilogy, Apprentice Of The Force is a touch too repetitive and simple to be enjoyable for all that long.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It comes with a small array of multiplayer modes and a highly compelling main multiplayer quest -- and these things are always more fun with extra human players -- and it's a title with solid longevity.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Def Jam: Fight For NY is a good game -- there's no doubt about that -- but it's perhaps that rarest of fighting games -- one that's better off played solo, or against one other player only, rather than in true multiplayer.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    If you look beyond the Star Wars trappings, however, what you're left with is a game that's not quite as good as it really should be, which is a pity.

    My Sim is freshly bathed with a full stomach, empty bladder, and a good night's sleep while I am up at 3am - dirty, hungry, tired, and about to pee on the floor because I'm so involved. That's got to be the sign of a good game -- doesn't it?
