    Beyond an hour's playing it looks grim.

    It's the best in the series and possibly one of the best real time strategy games around. However if you own "Settlers III" then this is more like an upgrade than a whole new game.

    The finest gunplay action seen on the Playstation since the original.

    Hostile Waters is not only a superb PC game it's actually one of the very best games I've ever played.

    Could have done without some of the extra resource and development bits that seem rather tagged on but still a hefty challenge for war gamers.

    If you've got shorts, Simpsons Wrestling really should be eating them.

    About as worthwhile an investment as Russ Abbot's Party Atmosphere single, although it has to be said that the single represents considerably better value for money.

    It's kind of brilliant - but it's also a bit of an underachiever, considering what could have been.

    It's not the all-encompassing experience of godly power that was suggested. You have to play it in a fairly rigid and organised fashion.

    Everything you could hope for in a Quake game is present and correct, with two glaring exceptions - mouse/keyboard control, and on-line play.

    Serious Sam was born into a world where "Doom" has placated the need for logical thought and lives in a world governed by the visceral.

    There's strong overtones of strategic gameplay but sadly, they're never properly realised. As Roy Walker from TV's Catchphrase might say, Away Team is good (ish), but it's not right.

    This is definitely a game for baseball fans.

    It's a quick fix of violence wrapped up in the sort of looks that will impress your non-PS2 owning mates, and at least you can show it off when they come round. Just bear in mind that it won't beat "Tekken," "DOA2" or "Soul Calibur" for replay, and you will enjoy it.

    Witty, knowing, referential, and above all supremely playable, Conker is an absolute corker.

    Not the greatest game you'll ever play, but a good blast with plenty of atmosphere and ideas to see you through to the end.

    Funny gags, cool graphics, neat characters and easy progression make this an ideal way to wile away a rainy day. Don't expect too much and I guarantee you'll be pleasantly surprised.

    Princess Amidala might by nice and decorative, but a convincing military leader she ain't.

    It's hard not to feel some satisfaction from decapitating an enemy with a cunningly timed swipe then watching his headless body loll for a few moments before collapsing in a heap. Or how about this - slice off a baddy's arm then pick it up and beat his mate to death with it. Blimmin' marvellous.

    McRae Rally 2.0 oozes quality and demands to be played again and again.

    Yeah, as far as games of the genre go, this is excellent.

    There are more than enough game variants here to keep you happy, playable in a convoy of fully customisable off-road vehicles and across some really detailed and expansive terrain. Check it out, it's the ultimate backseat drive.

    The Stunt mode in particular is well worth a look. Not huge, it's nevertheless worth the price of admission alone.

    Oni
    Unlike many of today's action-girl heroes Konoko isn't all about big boobs and tight butt-cheeks. In contrast to a certain someone she spends the game firmly ensconced in kevlar body armour and combat fatigues.

    One billion points for single handily dragging online RPGs out of a mire of orcs, beards and dreadful graphics. It's repetitive and shallow (kind of) but it's also amazingly beautiful, addictive and - believe it or not - socially rewarding and instructive!

    Oni
    Rock solid, all-action gameplay but misses out on a higher mark due to a few noticeable flaws.

    What MSR fails to do is generate any real adrenalin rush.

    If you've got a Dreamcast or N64, buy the original Wetrix - it's got more to it and the gameplay is unfettered by irritating controls.

    Like the Soup Nazi from "Seinfeld" - it demands perfection from itself, so how can it expect any less from it's customers? Tough, but rewardingly so.

    Boasting value for money gameplay, a tight cohesive storyline and a gorgeously realistic setting this is a game that demands to be played.
