A futuristic sports sim that's right on the numbers. Hugely varied... Lovely metal-hits-metal sounds too.
At last, a role-play game that works! Split-screen excellence... Clear, solid and strong.
Great stuff! Easy enough for the beginner to start, while being hard enough to test the best at the finish. Pretty huge monsters to meet, greet and kill too!
Awesome, really...! Simply irresistible but warning, you will get hooked!
A bit of a plod if you're not into isometric 3D puzzlers, but a polished example of the genre.
Great licence, but overly difficult. Brilliant theme music though.
Raffaele Cecco has become something of our hero over the last few years; if you give the Collection a shot he may become your hero too!
Motorcycle racing for the extremely timid! 10mph looks pretty much the same as 100mph - it's just harder to stay on the tarmac!
Packed backdrops, average sounds and a strong shoot-'em-up hook... Darned good!
A 3D isometric adventure with cute graphics and a cute tune... Head Over Heels is a great example of a genre that has unjustly passed on into the mists of time.

Tough but short, each level needs perseverance to see you through.
Wins you over... A great budget investment!
A simulator that's too real... Red October is extremely complex. But stick with it and there's a lot to learn.
One of the best soccer sims ever on the CPC. If the tournament had been tougher it would have claimed the mantle of the best full stop.
The ball - which often appears square - bounces as if the game was being played in lunar gravity, while tackling proves nigh-on impossible!
Won't win any silverware this season but they give a better account of themselves than certain Merseyside computer teams you could mention!
Monty Mole is ace! Great platform action that hasn't lost any of its charm.
