Xbox 360 - The Official Magazine has posted the following reviews:
- Amped 3 (9/10)
"In the air, things are different again – while SSX emphasises heavy prewinding and yanking the stick for multiple spins, Amped encourages a gentler touch for slower, high-scoring ‘Stylish’ spins. Which system you prefer will be partly personal preference, but Amped’s is closer to the laconic feel of ‘real’ snowboarding, or the sense of effortlessness seen in the best videos. And nobody pulls off their bindings and helicopters the board around their neck. Although you can get in snowball fights. Deal with it, purists."
- Project Gotham Racing 3 (9/10)
"Gotham 3 is not a huge leap forward from what Gotham 2 offered in content or look, but it is a decent-sized step up that makes it Xbox 360’s star launch game. The handling is the same Gotham quality, the Xbox Live features pump life into it, the engine growls are absolutely sensational and the few tweaks made to the Career side of business shine the Gotham brand up well. It’s not quite the untouchable dream game we were hoping for, but it’s still the best Xbox 360 racer you can buy right now."
