ReviewsEdit

SnippetsEdit

Call of Duty: Black Ops - 9/10 - Who's top dog now?

Treyarch has proven that it's got the stones to compete with Infinity Ward, or perhaps more aptly, complement it.

Rock Band 3 - 9/10 - Harmonix's rivals have a lot to learn.

There's a gaping chasm between how you've enjoyed music games before and what Rock Band 3 offers.

Fable III - 7/10 - Two thirds of a great game.

All of the areas where the game truly excels are exactly what we expect from the series, and from Lionhead as a studio.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II - 5/10 - A supergiant that has burned out too soon.

TFU II feels like a series of unfulfilled and broken promises that could kill the franchise.

Final Fantasy XIV - 4/10 - An unfinished fantasy.

Given time you'll begin to see through the haze of a billion perfectly rendered polygons and Final Fantasy nostalgia.

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood - 9/10 - Another classic creed. Oh, how much they've learned.

Assassin's Creed 2.5 it may be, it's a perfect reminder of how a careful, iterative approach can be as rewarding as blithely flinging ideas around.

Kinect Sports - 6/10 - Better than Kinect Adventures, but falls short.

Kinect Adventures - 5/10 - An inauspicious start for Kinect.

Sonic Colours - 8/10 - Arguably the holy grail of 3D Sonic games.

God of War: Ghost of Sparta - 8/10 - Like watching your favourite film for the 100th time.

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit - 9/10 - Crash, bang, wallop - what a videogame.

It won't be long before you're throwing the back end out to perform almost OutRun 2-level fist-pumping drifts.

Donkey Kong Country Returns - 8/10 - Like the last 14 years never happened.

Elegantly blends a deep-held respect for its subject matter with a masterful appreciation of two-dimensional platform game craftsmanship.

The Ball - 7/10 - Expertly made and thoroughly engaging.

Super Scribblenauts - 7/10 - Major improvements create new problems.

James Bond 007: Blood Stone - 5/10 - The games bland.

Shaun White Skateboarding - 6/10 - Irritating, but ultimately enjoyable.

Time Crisis: Razing Storm - 4/10 - Time for a series rethink.

TV Superstars - 2/10 - Truly dire - will probably sell two million copies.

The Fight - 3/10 - More kick in the pants than punch in the face.

The Shoot - 7/10 - Aims to please.

Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom - 7/10 - A truly charming fairytale.

An adventure that anyone but the most black-souled gamer will feel compelled to see through to the end credits.

Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 - 7/10 - Clever design let down by technical faults.

NBA Jam - 8/10 - The most fun sports game you'll play all year.

Super Meat Boy - 9/10 - The best traditional platform game in years.

Costume Quest - 5/10 - Not quite in fashion.

Etrian Odyssey III: The Drowned City - 9/10 - Still unique, two sequels later.

A Shadow's Tale - 7/10 - An original concept let down by misjudged combat.

Goldeneye 007 - 7/10 - An enjoyable throwback to a simpler time.
