    For me it's the greatest video game ever made.  8 years on and It's still light years ahead of it's nearest competitor.

    Operation Flashpoint: Cold War Crisis

    For me it's the greatest video game ever made. 8 years on and It's still light years ahead of it's nearest competitor.

    Like a fine wine or a classic movie, OFP just seems to improve with age. Obviously the graphics haven't aged very well but the gameplay remains as solid and absorbing as it ever was. The A.I in this game is just incr... Read Full Review

    Fallout 3

    It doesn't match Oblivion's epic adventure but it's still a whole heap of fun.

    I've just finished the game and I have to admit I did feel a little disappointed. It's not as good as Obilivon and I was hoping it would be. The game does create the illusion of being huge but it really isn't. The... Read Full Review

    Alone in the Dark

    A complete mess that frustrates more than it entertains.

    Just a mess of a game the falls at every hurdle. I had to stop playing it otherwise I would've thrown my controller at my very expensive TV and I can't afford to do that again. The game starts off bad and gets progre... Read Full Review

    Frontlines: Fuel of War

    Not quite in the same league as Battlefield but a solid alternative.

    I'm a Battlefield veteran and started playing this immediately after I'd finished (and got bored with) Battlefield 2142. I wanted something that was similar but had enough originality to keep me interested. Frontline... Read Full Review

    Afraid of knowing how stupid you are? Then don't play this.

    I thought I was pretty smart until I played this and saw my average score show up on the Xbox Live leaderboard at place 50,567. That's extremely depressing knowing there are 50,000 gamers out there smarter than me, even... Read Full Review

    A competent GTA clone that looks amazing. A little shallow and repetative but it's outragous and great fun to play.

    I hated this game at first. I only paid £5 for it and was still annoyed at having spent this much on the game. The controls are awkward, the cars handle unrealistically, the voice acting is terrible, it's WAY too easy.... Read Full Review

    Interesting story but the game is a technical nightmare which saps all the fun out of it. A chore to play.

    I didn't enjoy this game at all. It became a chore to play but I stuck with it as long as my patience would allow but in the end I had to stop - my sanity depended on it. The early levels are very impressive and the ... Read Full Review

    Another step closer to football perfection. A few minor issues prevent this year's effort from being superb.

    I have to admit, I haven't been loyal to Pro Evolution Soccer. I've always bought FIFA but this year I decided to switch teams. And I'm glad I did. PES is simply more fun and more accessible then FIFA. This year th... Read Full Review

    Medal of Honor: Airborne

    A short, action-packed game that will leave you battle-scared but dying for more.

    Yes, it's short. But it's an absolute joy from start to finish. From the second the game starts you're right in the thick of the action. In every level you're heavily under fire from all directions. Nowhere is safe (... Read Full Review

    World Cup 2006 was easily the most forgettable World Cup ever, but this game is much more fun and very cheap to buy now.

    Cheap 360 games are now appearing on ebay. I picked this up for only £6. At that price you can't go wrong - if it sucks sell it to someone else and make a small profit. Suprisingly, unlike the actual World Cup, ... Read Full Review
