Go for the full Monty.

Monty Python And The Quest For The Holy Grail (pounds 39.99 PC CD-ROM)

MORE than 20 years after the film comes the game, complete with the inspired lunacy of the Python team which made them successors to Prince Charles favourite funnymen, The Goons.

But this isn't just a re-run of the film. There are plenty of assorted puzzles and games throughout the 15 scenes of this medieval romp to find the elusive Grail. Games like Catch The Cow and Burn The Witch may look silly, but some of them are tantalising and the puzzles can be fiendish.

And there is a high gloss to the graphics which gives the whole thing a polished feel. If you get to the end you can take part in a scene from the original script which has never been seen before - King Brian The Wild.

TOP OF THE LEAGUE

Complete Onside Soccer (pounds 39.99, PC CD-ROM)

This footie sim lacks the all-singing, all-dancing graphics of Actua Soccer and FIFA 96 but don't give it the yellow card yet. It makes up for it in excellent playability, allowing even a novice to string together a few good passes in a fairly short time. Then there are the obligatory options - dozens of them - plus camera views, pitch damage due to weather and a complete management simulator. You can even pick your seat to view the match. It's probably the most comprehensive football world ever invented for the PC. Unfortunately, there are so many soccer sims around at the moment that most fans have already got one. But if you're still trawling through them to find a favourite, give this a try - you might be surprised.
