The graphics are extremely detailed, and the interactive backgrounds mean that your creatures can hide, ready for ambush, or take advantage of higher ground. Although it takes some time to pick up, Magic & Mayhem is a truly cosmic game.

Resident Evil 2 HHH

PC CD-ROM When it was first released, Resident Evil was a landmark in video games with its unprecedented graphics and bloodshed. Now, Virgin is ready to unleash Resident Evil 2 onto your PC. Once again, players have to take on the undead and unveil the truth about the disappearance of the STARS team. RE2 contains some of the most terrifying monsters and most amazing backdrops ever seen; but its only appeal is its over-the- top blood and violence, whilst the gameplay is too simple and repetitive.
