    There’s just nothing there to recommend, beyond a reasonably decent plot. Best thing I can suggest, then, is to find a detailed guide somewhere online and read the story there – you’ll have more fun and won’t waste time and money on the game.

    In the end, Two Worlds is a bit like when you know there’s a five pound note hidden under a pile of rancid, squishy, steaming manure – sure, you’d like the money, but is it really worth wading through all that poop to get to it?

    Okay, the gloves are off. I really dislike this game. The titular fury is so apparent after just one race.

    It may not be the worlds greatest game but it still brings a lot of funny perspectives into the world of massive multiplayer online games.

    If you are an absolute diehard darts fan, someone who really enjoys watching the televised tournaments then there is possibly something here for you, otherwise if you’re simply looking for a game of darts, one that you can enjoy with your mates? Well nip down to your local high street, a bog standard dartboard is likely to cost about half of where this game will RRP.

    Only diehard fans and those looking to complete every aspect of the game will get the most out of it.

    To cut to the chase, this is more a new episode than a new series, with what little changes there are related to updated graphics and a slightly modified search system.

    “Oddly not as compelling as it sounds” is an apt summary for it all, to be honest.

    At the end of the day it's a pretty average racing game here, it has a lot in common with Excitetruck, but is a pale imitation of it really.

    So you’re left with a game that provides surprisingly enjoyable family-friendly fun, but one that doesn’t last longer than four hours (five if you’re a child) and misses opportunity after opportunity.

    There are 10 basic levels, plus a bunch of challenge-style bonus levels that can be unlocked if you can bear the plodding, outdated gameplay, unresponsive controls, uninteresting graphics, and average sound. Otherwise, frustration and boredom are likely to see Operation: Vietnam being traded in very quickly indeed.

    On the whole, the extremely variable difficulty level, the bugs, the graphical pop-up that makes the driving so infuriating and the overall poor standard of the on-foot missions mean that this is, unfortunately, Driv3l.

    It feels rushed, it looks dated and it’s filled with annoying glitches that should have been ironed out during play testing.

    There are some good ideas in here and with a bit more bug fixing and tweaking before release this could have been a decent offering. In the end Stormrise has so many problems that it is impossible to recommend.

    All I can do, and it kills me to say this, is advise you don’t get this game. Simply because it’s a poor game, with a score propped up by a better, more traditional Sonic available to play. Sadly it’s not available to play with enough.

    An incredibly disappointing and frustrating experience.

    So far, so 1/10! But, despite the control issues, the awful production values and the Create-a-player mode being the most stripped down and useless creation tool I’ve ever seen (there aren’t even any stats to give your player), PDC still has that ‘something’ that makes it worthy of more than that.

    If the developer doesn’t care to address the problems True Crime: New York City has, you shouldn’t care to buy it. It’s that simple.

    I believe EA could have created a very nice 2D/Top down view version of the game to suit the DS but instead it thought that a liner mission based structure would be more fun for the player and in my opinion they could not have been more wrong.

    Is the game a kid's game? If it is, that's no excuse for such a shoddy piece of work.

    It's a stunner to look at and genuinely scared us on more than one occasion. I'm sure Darkworks would take some comfort in knowing that. But in the end it accounts for nothing, because this turkey is well and truly cold.

    Constantine the game is supposed to be in the horror genre just like the movie, but it simply fails to scare even just a little bit.

    The bugs in the gameplay make it difficult to recommend and the graphics make it unpleasant to watch.

    Irregular, often frustrating, boring, not technical enough for simulation addicts, not fun or crazy enough for arcade lovers, despite a few positive aspects The BIGS 2 gives off a lukewarm feeling by taking a middle-of-the-road approach.

    Arguably, the dress code is the highlight of a game that desperately needs some kind of distinguishing string to its bow, for otherwise it’s as bland and culturally distant as clichéd manga template design can be.

    The learning curve, hampered by comically poor documentation and badly-executed tutorials, is almost vertical.

    Despite the many disappointments, undoubtedly the thing that disappointed me the most with FIFA World Cup 2010 is that it has no identity. It doesn’t know whether it’s a simulation or a simplistic arcade game.

    Carter is such a boring character it's hard to see his appeal. Unless you like playing gungho simpletons that congratulate themselves at any given opportunity for things as banal as successfully popping a guard in the head with a rubber bullet.

    That's one of the main problems with Fatal Inertia, it feels like a half-baked mod to Unreal Tournament rather than a proper game in its own right.

    If we had a penny for every bug or piece of glitchy physics we’d seen we would have a pretty hefty penny jar. In the end what could have been a potentially potent mix of gaming genres has turned out to be a below average hotchpotch of half-baked execution.
