BEST GAME OF ALL TIME Fantastic news as we take the top spot in PC Gamer's top 100 PC games of all time (2002). After several years at number one, Half-life bows out gracefully to third place while Medieval: Total War lords it at number one, directly above Deus Ex. With two other such outstanding games sharing the podium, this is a stellar achievement and the whole team at Creative Assembly are over the moon to receive this honour.

"It was the only contender."

"Hear these words and hear them well: this is the best strategy game money can buy."

"When we talk about strategy gaming as a whole, it's Shogun that rules supreme. And now it's even better."

"...confirms that Shogun dominates the genre."

"Creative Assembly have somehow managed to add several layers of depth and originality to an already critically acknowledged masterpiece"

"One of the most absorbing multi-player experiences you're ever likely to play."



PC ZONE: PC ZONE AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE 2001: 83%.

Gamespot.co.uk: 9.5/10 June 2000
"Shogun meets and exceeds expectations, from the finely constructed scene-setting movie for the campaign, which combines in-game, rendered cut-scenes with 500-year-old Japanese illustrations, to the excellently balanced strategy game combining resource management with intrigue, conquest and 3D battles."


Computer Gaming World: 4.5/5 and the Editor's Choice Award. September 2000
"Shogun possesses an impressive amount of depth and replay value in both strategy and tactical gameplay making it the leading candidate for strategy game of the year."


PC Gamer: 92% and Game of the Month. May 2000
"...the whole spectra of conflict within a game."


Gamers Central: 5/5 July 2000
"This gem of a game shines with great features that have been honed and polished by the designers. They have been implemented to near perfection giving the game a sleek feel and making it a complete package."


PC Player: 94% and Player Slayer Award. May 2000
"Shogun is the next step in gaming, as accessible and fun as C&C but with vast scope and grand aspirations."


Wargamer.com: 5/5, Award for Excellence August 2000 and runner-up Game of the Year 2000.
"...a brilliant, unique game package which has been put together with great care and attention to detail; the entire game was created with a sensitive artistic touch, making it a strong contender for best wargame of the year, and certainly meriting The Wargamer Award for Excellence."


Arcade: 5/5 and PC Game of the Month. June 2000
"If you take into account the excellent multi-player game, then not only is this warfare on an epic scale, it’s gaming on an epic scale as well."


PC Zone: 93% and Classic Award. June 2000
"This is the game that all new RTS titles will be judged against. The most realistic, involving and playable strategy game you’re likely to find."


PC Format: 91% and Gold Award. July 2000
"...borrows the best elements from turn-based strategy, weaves in an exciting campaign, and succeeds in moving the genre beyond the C&C wannabe-stagnation that's set in over the last couple of years."
PC Gaming World: 5/5 and Essential Game Award. June 2000
"...brilliant turn-based strategy, brilliant real-time strategy. My choice for the best strategy game of the past two years."

"Incredibly playable - an epic real-time strategy game with enormous depth, historical accuracy and gorgeous 3D battlefields."
EA Sports Rugby for the PS2

"An enjoyable romp that captures the spirit of the sport with fast paced action and simple controls." PS2 Station Magazine: 85%.

EA Sports Rugby 2001 for the PC

"EA's Rugby is a significant step forward for the sport and deserves a place in any sports fan's game collection." www.consoledomain.com.


"If you're a fan of Rugby I have three words for you...BUY THIS GAME."

"With motion-captured action, superbly realistic skins and models, greener-than-green grass, and almost photo-realistic venues, Rugby 2001 looks fantastic - and you can play it in video options ranging all the way up to 3d-accelerated 1600x1200 in 32-bit colour."

"The crowds roar, the forwards grunt, and the bone-crunching tackles sound truly bone-crunching. The commentary is professional and from two commentators who know rugby inside-out."

"Scarily lifelike reproductions of the real players' and teams' characteristics, this is as real as it gets. And the ref plays a nice advantage too! Artificial Intelligence gets 10 out of 10."

"Slick and professional, Rugby 2001 maintains EA Sports' high standards. The box is pretty, the installer is entertaining, and the pre-game menus and configuration screens look great."

"Up to four players can play at once using the same PC, and it's great fun."

"9 out of 10...BUY THIS GAME. Get some payback."
