    Everything good about the original game and even more! One of 'Greats' of the gaming world.

    Abe '99

    Everything good about the original game and even more! One of 'Greats' of the gaming world.

    Everything about the original Oddworld game that was good has been beefed up and served on a new platter with a side of sensational beer-battered chips. Abe's Exoddus is the second instalment in the Oddworld series. I... Read Full Review

    Better than your average game, but a slight let down from the previously set expectations.

    Spyro: Year of the Dragon (Platinum)

    Better than your average game, but a slight let down from the previously set expectations.

    Spyro; Year of the Dragon is the last instalment in the original Spyro series. In this game Spyro must battle an enemy race known as 'Rynocs' in another, far-off set of worlds that the dragon race had previously forgotte... Read Full Review

    Croc is one of those games that you're glad you played but will never play again.

    Croc: Legend of the Gobbos

    Croc is one of those games that you're glad you played but will never play again.

    Croc is a hard game to describe in terms of how good it is. I will, however, give it my best shot. You play as Croc; a baby crocodile with a tail-swing attack and a jumping attack. You can also pick up and move object... Read Full Review

    An all right game with a few major flaws. Dull in some areas, but creative and fun in others.

    Disney/Pixar's Toy Story 2: Buzz Lightyear to the Rescue! (Platinum)

    An all right game with a few major flaws. Dull in some areas, but creative and fun in others.

    Toy Story 2 is a good game, regardless of whether you are a fan of the film or not. It does tend to get a bit boring at times, and it falls victim to a few common errors made on many games, but overall, it is solid. T... Read Full Review

    A clumsy, dull game. Worth the pain for the biggest fans, but not for the serious gamer.

    Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

    A clumsy, dull game. Worth the pain for the biggest fans, but not for the serious gamer.

    Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's (or Philosopher's if you're anything other than a pretentious American) Stone (HP1) is a PS game based on the film. Nevertheless, it was nowhere near as good as the film. The first thin... Read Full Review

    The best in the series so far. An extension to the previous games with the flaws ironed out and even more fun to be had.

    Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G

    The best in the series so far. An extension to the previous games with the flaws ironed out and even more fun to be had.

    Definitely the best game in the Monster Hunter franchise to be released (outside of Japan that is seeing as they are the only ones I – living in Australia – can test), Monster Hunter Freedom Unite (MHFU) is exhilarating,... Read Full Review

    Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage!

    The original game with a facelift and even more freedom. A triumph and a classic for the PlayStation.

    The original Spyro game was revolutionary and remains one of the greatest games of all time. So how does one make a sequel to such a brilliant game? Smooth the rough patches, allow more freedom and introduce new friends.... Read Full Review

    Gran Turismo 2 (Greatest Hits)

    A classier version of the original game with more content and an even smoother design. Simple and elegant brilliance.

    I remember getting chills on the day I found out that there would be a GT2; Would it be as good? Would they ruin it? Would it be even better? Would there be more cars and track? Would it be as awesome? Well, in short: Ye... Read Full Review

    The original ultimate driving simulator; revolutionary for very good reason. A thing of beauty.

    A game that will forever be remembered by car racing game enthusiasts, Gran Turismo (GT) rocked the gaming world when it first came out. However, it was not the graphics, the soundtrack or the size. It was the fact that ... Read Full Review

    Eragon

    A fantastic game that puts the movie to shame. Freedom, good graphics, challenge, insane music, it's all here.

    Dragon games are notoriously difficult to get right. Expectations are always high, and yet it seems incredibly difficult to relay that awesome presence the idea of a dragon has. In the PSP game Eragon, however, Sierra ha... Read Full Review

    A brilliant game that combines all that gamers look for in a good game. A triumph for Capcom.

    A brilliant game. An absolute must for any car enthusiast. A classic.

    One of the greatest games of all time, Gran Turismo 4 (GT4) is close to the perfect car game. Just like all of the previous games in the franchise, one begins the game with a small amount of money, which you must use ... Read Full Review

    Sen-bloody-sational. The best game in the AOE series. Highly addictive, challenging and great fun.

    This is where Ensemble SHOULD have left it. AOE II, The Conquerors Expansion is nothing short of a brilliant game. As with the first game, one plays through major historical events, directing civilization as to how t... Read Full Review

    Eragon

    A very enjoyable game. It's great graphics, challenging levels and fantastic soundtrack will entertain for hours.

    The Eragon movie was one of the most highly anticipated theatrical events of 2006, and one of the biggest disappointments. The game, however, was a triumph. One plays as Eragon, a farm boy who discovers a dragon egg o... Read Full Review

    A pleasant surprise and a great addition to the ranks of cartoon PS1 games from Gen Y's childhood.

    One of the few 'movie games' to live up to the expectations set by the film, Hercules is pleasant little ball of fun. As Hercules, one punches, slashes, lifts, throws and charges their way through a 2D cartoon world t... Read Full Review

    A good game to initiate young gamers into the world of the PlayStation, but nothing special to comment upon.

    An alright game with some descent challenges, let down by furious repetition, a lack of motivation and little substance.

    Porsche challenge is a classic 'almost, but not quite' game. It is basically 'just another racing game', but with less substance. There are few tracks, and only one choice of car. There is also only one type of challenge... Read Full Review
