    Completely solid in the nuts and bolts, but missing all the imagination of its predecessors.

    Unreal Tournament III

    Completely solid in the nuts and bolts, but missing all the imagination of its predecessors.

    I was dying to get Unreal Tournament 3 when it first came out, but sadly, my poor old PC just wasn't up to scratch - gaming left it behind in 2004! However, having recently upgraded to a beast of a machine, and happening... Read Full Review

    A fascinating game that still feels fresh and original today.

    Beyond Good & Evil

    A fascinating game that still feels fresh and original today.

    As it was with Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, I'd heard good things about Beyond Good & Evil from various reviews, but still did what practically everyone else did: never get round to buying it. Eventually, though, I re... Read Full Review

    Adds a few nice features, but still not much of a step on from its fantastic predecessor.

    Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood (PS3 Slim Bundle)

    Adds a few nice features, but still not much of a step on from its fantastic predecessor.

    So, having gone the topsy-turvy route of playing Assassin's Creed II before the original, I'm finally properly up to date with the series, with a true sense of how it's really evolved this time round. So what's new? ~... Read Full Review

    A great mix of realistic tactics and brutal firefights.

    Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield

    A great mix of realistic tactics and brutal firefights.

    I had always been a big fan of the Rainbow Six series, but as much I loved the intricate planning, I always felt the actual FPS part of the game could have been executed much better - so when Raven Shield came out and th... Read Full Review

    Final Fantasy meets X-Com, via World War 2, drawn in watercolor!

    Senjou no Valkyria

    Final Fantasy meets X-Com, via World War 2, drawn in watercolor!

    Outside of Final Fantasy, there are very few RPGs I'm interested in trying, so it takes something pretty special to get me to give one a go. Valkyria Chronicles was one such game, and with it's unique blends of setting, ... Read Full Review

    The best tennis game currently available, though there are still improvements to be made.

    Top Spin 4

    The best tennis game currently available, though there are still improvements to be made.

    Once upon a time, I was into Virtua Tennis 2, and all was good. Then I discovered Top Spin 3, and after I'd spent a week or two learning how to play the damn thing, it turned out to be better. I couldn't really go back t... Read Full Review

    A game that's so excited about its ambitions, it forgets what made its predecessors so good.

    Burnout Paradise

    A game that's so excited about its ambitions, it forgets what made its predecessors so good.

    While most of the reviews for Burnout Paradise were gushing praise in its direction, there were occasional voices of dissent who said its new sandbox gameplay wasn't all it cracked up to be: this worried me, seeing as I ... Read Full Review

    Probably the best game in the Burnout series; and thus, the best racing game money can buy!

    Burnout Revenge

    Probably the best game in the Burnout series; and thus, the best racing game money can buy!

    I must admit, I wasn't entirely sure at first what Burnout Revenge would do differently from its predecessor; but given how utterly brilliant Burnout 3 was, a little more of the same would be fine by me! ~ Pros: ... Read Full Review

    The game that put the boot in all other racers.

    Burnout 3: Takedown (Dutch)

    The game that put the boot in all other racers.

    Before I bought Burnout 3, I'd heard a lot about how brilliant it was, but still wondered if people weren't just getting a bit too excited about it all... After I played it, though, there was no going back! ~ Pros:... Read Full Review

    A beefy, exciting action game, and more than just another MGS-wannabe.

    Syphon Filter

    A beefy, exciting action game, and more than just another MGS-wannabe.

    Syphon Filter certainly looked like quite an opportunistic game when it first came out, being one of the first to come out from beneath the shadow of MGS, and just so happening to star a secret agent who utilised stealth... Read Full Review

    One of the best games on the Megadrive, and still a solid platformer to this day!

    Flashback

    One of the best games on the Megadrive, and still a solid platformer to this day!

    For some reason not too many people actually got round to playing Flashback, or have even heard of it - I know it's getting on a bit, but that's still a crying shame when it was such a brilliant game for its time! ~ ... Read Full Review

    Fantastic setting, theme and writing, but a few little niggles hold it back.

    BioShock

    Fantastic setting, theme and writing, but a few little niggles hold it back.

    As I tend to be with most games nowadays, I was a good few years late to the BioShock party - but all through that time, I kept hearing from all over the place what an amazing game it was meant to be. So, all this time a... Read Full Review

    Makes perfect sense as a mod, but not quite as successful when considered as a retail game.

    Tactical Ops: Assault on Terror

    Makes perfect sense as a mod, but not quite as successful when considered as a retail game.

    I'll admit it: I never played Counterstrike. So if you wonder why I don't complain about what a rip-off this is, then that's why! Instead I saw it just as a fun mod for Unreal Tournament, which led to me buying it outrig... Read Full Review
