Movie Premier

You can tell it's nearly Christmas time when all of the compilations start flooding into the streets. This year is certainly no exception, with some superb collections to boost our playing power.

As compilations come and go, they won't get much better that this belter from Elite, which includes four stupendous classics, each top sellers in their own right, which come together to form excellent value for money and a guaranteed success for the festive season.

First up on this blast is the totally awesome original Turtles bash, which sees you battling it out against Bebop, Rocksteady and Shredder, in a desperate bid to rescue April O'Neil, before going on to create havoc for the bad guys.

Changing Turtle characters at will for best attacking effects, this game took last Christmas' market by storm, with the sequel set to do the same this year. If you haven't had a go at it yet, do so now!

Next up is the superb Back To The Future II blast, which whizzes you off to the future in a close follow on from the movie. Can you and the Doc put things straight before teatime? Or are you going to be stuck in limbo with your whole world coming down around your ears? That, of course, depends on how well you perform.

The next offering is the excellently crafted race blast, Days Of Thunder. Experience all the thrills and spills of big time motor racing on some of the toughest circuits in the States, as you battle it out for the top prizes and the glory.

Had enough? I hope not, as the last outing on this superb collection is the hilarious Gremlins 2 movie licence. Catch them quick before they take over the world, or you'll be neck deep in ferocious furry things for the rest of your life.

Each of these blasts is totally addictive and very, very different. The quality of the graphics and sound effects goes without saying and, if you want something that's going to keep you glued to the screen over the long winter nights, then you'd better start queuing in the shops right now.

Due for release round about now, you won't find many better offerings on the market this year, each of the games are instantly recognisable and easy to get hooked on.
