Clive Barker's Jericho - 2/5
The graphics are initially impressive, but you'll soon realise it's an endless cycle of dingy spaces, dark corridors, frantic beasties and rivers of blood. Pale 15-year-olds will lap it up, but the scrappy Jericho can't hold a torch to Halo 3, BioShock or even last year's Gears of War
Uncharted: Drake's - 4/5
After a torrid launch, the PS3 is finally starting to shine. Ratchet & Clank highlighted the console's graphical oomph, and Uncharted: Drake's Revenge takes it a step further. A videogame jungle has never looked so lush, and there are plenty of times when you'll simply want to stand and stare. The animation is splendid too; Drake is a joy to control.
Unreal Tournament 3 - 4/5
You could argue the recent Quake: Enemy Territories took more risks with an ageing formula, but this is still advanced shooting that FPS fans should grow to love as soon as the servers get busy.
