    It is very well made, challenging, long and so amazingly atmospheric. Sadly, there is a small voice at the back of my head, when ever I see or hear something lifted from Prime, nagging at me, asking why Retro couldn't have just put a tiny bit more effort in and given us a completely new game.

    What hurts the game though is the fact that it's so short, with little replay value and most players are likely to complete the whole thing in two or three sittings.

    It's solid fun, but rarely anything more – if you owned the N64 version, I strongly advise that you stay away from this.

    Redwood created a magnificent detailed Middle Earth, and fans of LOTR will be pleased because of that. Yet for those who regularly play RPG's the game offers nothing you have seen before, it suffers from repetitiveness and a more than mild difficulty level.

    The Incredibles seems to be going a little old school with this trial and error concept. For some that may be a challenge but for others it's just pure annoyance.

    The game starts rather slow (like most RPGs) and there are a few fetch quests that feel like they're just there to make the game longer, but overall this has to be one of the best, if not the best RPG on the Cube.

    It's likely to become one of the most collectable and sought-after titles in years to come. As it stands, it's one of the most entertaining.

    Unless you have an unhealthy obsession with the film, or are young don’t bother. But if those two descriptions match you, it will bring you hours of happiness.

    There are a few annoyances like bridges you can fall off a little too easily, the AI that's quite clumsy in places and the fact that it does get repetitive in the end. But you can't stay mad at a game that lets you chuck a complete jet ski at an opponent as Rogue or Colossus, admit it!

    If you're looking for a fresh game with a nice story, look no further, Second Sight tells a good story but doesn't let it get in the way of good gameplay.

    The innovative KO style of the fights and the inventive way of using the crowd and the environment to lay the smack down is very satisfying.

    It doesn’t look good, it sounds terrible and is way too easy. Sure it’s supposed to be a kids game, but kids don’t mind their games looking good and they’re also better at playing games than a lot of developers seem to think.

    The main game though remains a solid arcade experience and for T-800 fanatics this really is the closest you're likely to come at the moment of actually experiencing the excitement of being in a Terminator Movie.

    Nintendo have taken the strategy genre into a whole new direction, and the result is an absolutely stunning experience that will make you sad to see it end.

    This game can last forever just as long as you can recruit some friends.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    The problems with the game though far outweigh the positive aspects and whilst this overall design probably looked good on paper there's not nearly enough variety to sustain your interest.

    The game is just put together so very well you’ll be surprised how much it will appeal.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    The story is your typical Tom Clancy affair, complete with terrorist threats and biochemical weapons, so don’t look for fresh ideas there. The replay value is beaten down by the lack of multiplayer modes and the fairly linear levels.

    Without a doubt the best puzzle game on the Cube at the moment. It’s not as accessible as a Game Boy with "Tetris," but that’s simply because you can’t carry your Cube with you all the time.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 57 Critic Score
    The problems are just too numerous to mention ranging from clumsy controls to frustrating camera angles and that's before you even get to the rather weak AI of almost anyone you decide to battle with.

    • 80 Critic Score
    The game’s core elements – cue control and ball physics – work so well, you’ll take any inconveniences into the bargain. In a world full of action games, Pool Paradise’s relaxed style is a welcome change.

    Now we want Batman, Superman, Punisher and all the other masked musclemen to follow suit! Please.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A nice game, but it doesn't offer enough to be anywhere near special. The AI is not above average and the lack of online modes hurts the longevity.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    So we’ve got a pretty original concept, executed in a completely uninspired and unoriginal way.

    A nice single player game, but a great multiplayer game. [Multiplayer review]
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It’s a pleasant experience, though. Not as good as Zelda, but the Harry Potter-sauce surely lifts it above average.

    Once story mode is out of the way you will discover a gem of a fighter. You just have to persevere through the story. Don't give up!
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    By cutting down or even eliminating the essential RPG elements the fans will lose their interest quickly, while the action addicts will not appreciate the turn-based system.

    • 69 Critic Score
    If you can look beyond the dated graphics, the basic gameplay model and of course if shooters are your thing, then you are in for quite some fun, and that’s what it is all about really.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The cube version has had an interface overhaul and great new multiplayer modes, but it's basically the same game as the GBA version...This game is all about fun and pure gameplay.
