    Fairly good scores, but nothing stands out too much. Rock/Megaman seems good though, might be worth picking up!

    Wow, so it seems Cars might even be pretty good! I mean they definitely weren't that harsh y'know? Smilie

    Also.... MegaMan ZX out in Japan ALREADY!?!??!? I can't believe we have to wait so long in EU!!!

    Megaman will most likely be another big seller well if the gba games were anything to go by


    Mike Gee of iZINE said, "...The Verve, as he promised, had become the greatest band in the world. Most of the critics agreed with him. Most paid due homage. The Verve were no longer the question mark or the clich. They were the statement and the definition."

    I was expecting a better score for megaman ZX, i watched a trailer and thought it looked amazing and ive never even played a megaman game before.

    -Have you any idea what it's like to be a Fembot living in a Manbot's Manputer's world?
    -What?

    Nice to see Cars keeping up the film/bad game tradition!

    Pathetic games anyway...Japs don't care about Cars. Well one would think they wouldn't. But what would I know...
