Classix 1

More plundering of vaults as The Edge disinters its own collection of 'Those You Have Loved'. This one is very much in the 'One Ripsnorter And The Rest's Rubbish' mode, a bit like Virgin's Now Games 4 which we looked at last time.

The nerve-tingler there was Dan Dare, and here it's Bobby Bearing, a brilliant marbly 3D arcade adventure and one of the best games we've ever seen from The Edge.

But then there are the others. Brian Bloodaxe is a platform game of stultifying unoriginality, Starbike is a rip-off of Lunar Jetman, Psytraxx has 1,000 rooms but not much in any of 'em, and That's The Spirit is a multi-screen city romp a la Ghostbusters, except without the jokes. If you haven't seen Bobby Bearing before, this is good value. Otherwise, steer well clear.
