The Independent Online

The new F1 season is only eight races old, but EA's latest creation looks certain to leave all competitors eating its dust. As expected, this title has the usual features of an F1 simulator – championship, multiplayer and training modes, plus the 2002 season updates – but all accompanied by photo-realistic graphics and precise physics. All-in-all, F1 2002 sets the pace for others to beat.

Medal of Honor
PlayStation 2 (EA)
£39.99
Having taken the PC world by storm, Medal of Honor: Frontline is ready to give PS2 owners a taste of the trenches. This explosive feast of first-person action takes gamers into the heart of the Second World War in a bid to rid the world of the Nazi threat. Beautifully crafted, incredibly taxing and deeply engrossing, Frontline is as close to war as you'd ever wish to be.

Waterloo
PC-CDROM (BreakAway)
£29.99
***
This is a historical, real-time-strategy wargame based upon the famous events of 1815. Created by award-winning artist Keith Rocco in conjunction with Sid Meier's Gettysburg game-engine, Waterloo looks the part, and, with fully customisable scenarios, the gameplay has endless possibilities. However, while it is a refined game, Waterloo lacks the pace or imagination of its rivals.

Extreme G3
Gamecube (Acclaim)
£39.99
****
Renowned for its high-speed racing action, Extreme G 3 offers Gamecube owners a high-octane rush. The aim of the game is to blaze your way around futuristic tracks on jet-propelled, gun-toting motorcycles in a bid to be first across the finishing line. Fast, competitive and extremely colourful, the games is let down by slightly cumbersome controls and blocky graphics.
