    Nowhere near as good as the full-priced alternatives - but you're still guaranteed a pretty good time.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 63 Critic Score
    Overly jaunty and a bit threadbare - but by no means an embarrassment for Microsoft.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 63 Critic Score
    An unoriginal and slightly dull survival horror in the Resident Evil mould, the brilliant X-Files atmosphere and 20 price tag will save it for fans of the show.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 63 Critic Score
    Tasks as simple as wandering around are frustrated by the controls reversing as the camera angle jumps, while during the frequent combat bits you'll spend more time fighting with the clunking movement mechanism than with the denizens of Silent Hill.

    So despite a slight lick of paint, especially in the newer areas, AC2 still sports one of the ugliest interfaces in MMO history and has game options that are insultingly simplistic. [PC Zone]

    • 62 Critic Score
    All this violence is undeniably fun for a while and the visuals are decent, but after a couple of hours you'll have seen all there is to offer. [PC Zone]

    Sure, it looks like the film on the surface, but you don't have to dig far to find a game that fails to live up to the license. Surprisingly, it's the competitive multiplayer that impresses the most.

    A deeply disappointing experience that barely appeals to hack 'n' slash nuts and fans of Kurosawa's masterpiece.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 62 Critic Score
    It's got the basics in place, but that just isn't enough. Ultimately there are superior role-playing and swordfighting games out there.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 62 Critic Score
    In essence, the game mechanics are as rough as a butcher's dog, yet it remains a game that will make you smile, and one that you'll finish - not least because it's so damn short.

    Sticks to the Silent Hill formula like glue. But Homecoming feels clunky and looks old compared to today's horror games.
    • 49 Metascore

    Eorzea is a beautiful world with huge potential for vast adventures, but it's just a shame that this first voyage into it is such a mis-step.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 62 Critic Score
    While not a universally terrible effort, the tense stand-offs and tight urban combat is let down by the weak interface and poor consistency in your squad's AI.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    So for all the weak enemy AI and graphical glitches, ABZ remains a decent and carnage-filled team-based blaster, worth checking out when the price drops.

    The way I see it, the only reason you might want to carry on playing is because you've already invested so much time in getting to where you are - which sounds like a lot of hard work to me. [PC Zone]

    Breathlessly imaginative in everything but gameplay. Only die-hards need to journey down this particular rabbit hole.

    DMC4 kicks DW's face off all night long. But, for strategy fans, this could be worth a night's rental.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Obviously not the most groundbreaking title out there, but a solid title that, with a bit more concentration on the presentation front, could have scaled the heady highs of platformers.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A spook-tacular recreation of the Ghostbusters world, let down by dodgy spook-snatching and no-mark characters.

    Problem is, if you are serious about your ice hockey games Rivals' online capability is one of the few things to get excited about.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's an engaging scrap that just about manages to keep you hooked. Worth taking a chance on if you like fight-heavy action adventures with a seedy, skuzzy undercurrent and plenty of face-smashing. [PSW]
    • 53 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's the Versus mode which stands out - hurling streetlights and taxi cabs at Captain America is no end of fun. [PSW]
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The result looks well tasty, but is hard to swallow. [PSW]

    Everybody's Golf invites comparison with the similarly cartoonish "Outlaw Golf 2." Sadly it comes off second best again, thanks to that game's wealth of tournaments and play modes, and its attractive 19.99 price tag. [PSW]
    • 74 Metascore

    Genji is such a shallow and easy game to complete that it won't keep you busy for more than six or seven hours. And that's only if you can stomach the long-winded cut-scenes. [PSW]
    • 76 Metascore

    So while Sniper Elite is tense and fairly riveting, it's never exciting or completely satisfying. The game feels like a chore to play through and the concept is just too limited to be truly enjoyable. [PSW]
    • 51 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Nano Breaker degenerates into a slew of mindless button-bashing encounters. It's fun in a retro kind of way, but it isn't quite intelligent enough to keep you coming back for more.

    There's just not enough here to warrant a score of your hard-earned readies. [Official UK Xbox Magazine]
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    There's just not enough attitude to elevate the standard gameplay above average and after the style and sheen of "SSX3" and "THUG" this looks second rate.
    • 69 Metascore

    Unfortunately, the cut-scenes throughout the game just rub salt into the wound, their slick animations contrasting with the clunky in-game action. Yes, From Russia With Love creaks like the 75-year-old Connery's knees, but it still has style. [PSW]
