Test Drive Unlimited (Xbox 360)

THIS is a whopping game, make no mistake.

Once you've chosen one of the world's 90 most desirable cars, you've got 360 multiplayer and solo challenges, including a combined online and offline total of 125 races, to choose from.

Online, you can challenge gamers around the world in eight-player races around the 1,000 miles of road on Hawaii's Oahu island, mapped out using authentic GPS data.

This is virtual driving at its very best.

Rating: 5/5

Ultimate Ghosts'n'Goblins (PSP)

A CLASSIC arcade game that made its way onto all of the early computers, Ghosts'n'Goblins is still alive and well.

With the use of a 3D graphics engine, the familiar side-scrolling world comes alive on PSP with real depth and detail, while still retaining the classic design.

A new levelling system gradually builds up Arthur's skills for powerful magical attacks.

An entertaining update of a classic franchise.

Rating: 3/5

Tokyo Xtreme Racer Advanced (GBA)

THE Tokyo Xtreme Racer has been a solid if unspectacular series on the bigger consoles, and this marks its first outing on the GBA, letting gamers speed beyond the open roads of Tokyo and onto the motorways of London and the freeways of Los Angeles.

The 3D-style graphics are decent enough for this format, although the lack of a two-player mode is a serious oversight that could have made an average racer much more fun.

Rating: 3/5
