Eurogamer has posted their review of MotoGP: Ultimate Racing Technology 3, giving it a 7 out of 10.
"Of course, it's only really on the PC that the unnecessarily complex controls are even a problem, which highlights the only serious problem with this game. It is a pity, for it is a would-be 'great' game, and on the Xbox would be reasonably scored as such. But, on a PC, the complexity of the default controls and the horrors of the PC keyboard for this kind of thing force the mark down to a mere 'very good'."

Game Over has posted their review of NHL 2K6, giving it a overall rating of 85%.

With sharp gameplay, polished game modes, great presentation, and a price tag of only $20 USD, hardcore fans need look no further for their hockey fix."
