Championship Manager 5 (PS2; pounds 39.99

DO you think you could make the most of Abramovich's millions? Have you always dreamed of taking your nonleague team to European glory? Now you can, as the world champion of football management games returns for more time-sapping, mind-boggling, statistic-staring that we still can't get enough of.

Featuring massively reduced loading times, CM5 is now much more user-friendly and lets you tweak your training regime or check out scouting reports while matches are in progress. All of which makes the revised stats, new training system and huge world of international transfers all the more accessible and enjoyable

RATING: 9/10 - Home Win Brothers In Arms: Road To Hill 30 (Xbox; pounds 39.99

GAMERS have had to put up with some fairly awful wartime shooters in recent years.

But hold your fire on this one, which is set during the famous airdrop before the invasion of Normandy in WWII, as you take on the role of Sgt Matt Baker.

There are weapons and tons of enemies, but the tactical elements of Brothers In Arms raise it above the level of most similar titles, as you must choose between the success of your mission and the lives of your men.

And as if that's not enough t o keep you occupied, gorgeous environments and incredible AI will keep your jaw firmly in the trenches. Brilliant stuff

RATING: 9/10 - On Target

Resident Evil 4 (Gamecube; pounds 39.99) IT SEEMS like Resident Evil has been around for decades (it's nearly 10 years, actually) and the game can always lay claim to being the original.

The latest title sees the return of Leon Kennedy, last seen in Resident Evil 2, and totally revolutionises the genre invented by its predecessors, with the addition of features like a point and shoot device, allowing accurate aiming and a camera that follows.

Every gruesome battle is simply brilliant and you won't fail t o be blown away by what could be the best game on the Gamecube ever - seriously

RATING: 9/10 - Scream Dream
