    Even after all these years, the loveable yellow circle with the eating disorder still has what it takes to entertain gamers everywhere.

    If only Another Code was double its length... It’s enjoyable and unputdownable until finish.

    And you should all be outraged by the blatant James Pond rip-off, too.

    Batman has never looked so good and for once the developers have taken as much care with the gameplay and story as they have with the overall presentation.

    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.

    • 68 Critic Score
    Thanks to a poorly constructed objective and progression system in the career mode, many players will find themselves giving up too soon.

    An incredibly enjoyable game and the GBA linkup is a truly unique addition.

    The first play through is genuinely enjoyable and the two-player option just about as good as it gets. Given the number of bikes on the track it's a shame that a four-player option wasn't included.

    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.

    Good for quick laugh, but that's about it. No multiplayer, and limited gameplay means there's not much life in this game.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Although there are some 15 levels available here even a novice gamer should have it all tied up in a number of sittings.

    It brings new life to the bongos.

    It’s definitely the Mario Party title you’ll want to buy if you’re new to the series, since it has the most minigames and the best boards of the Cube iterations.

    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.

    The top speed gameplay and accompanying effects that come with it are really impressive. The only real downside is that there isn’t enough depth in the gameplay.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    A great pick up and play game, and the Quick Start mode means you can have a fast twenty minute game if you want, or get stuck into Campaign or multiplayer instead.

    The camera becomes very annoying and only leads to build up frustration at times. The story takes time to get going which I find is the main cause of the boredom.
    • 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.

    Rising Sun has some great parts like the train level, but also some frustrating moments. Trying to aim properly while the framerate is unsteady and the only guns at your disposal are machine guns with terrible recoil is the most important cause of these.

    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.

    • 72 Critic Score
    Although it has more than its fair share of good points, Need for Speed 2 should have been so much more and you can't help but come back to that annoying frame rate.

    • 65 Critic Score
    The lack of depth doesn’t ruin the game, but only younger sports lovers and dedicated Harry Potter fans will appreciate this.

    Overall the Streetfighter games have always been annoyingly hard, and in times where gameplay is focused on a merely mainstream type of gamers, this game probably suits the need for those hardcore arcade action lovers.

    It's lazy, it's textbook and less than half of it is worth playing.
    • 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.
    • 67 Metascore

    The actual gameplay lends itself far more to a handheld format and for that reason alone, if you actually own a Gameboy Advance, you're probably better going for that version.

    If you've already purchased "Crazy Taxi" then there's little here to tempt you into buying what is essentially the same product unless, of course, you're a huge Simpsons fan.

    An entertaining racing game, but also has quite some faults, most notably overtaking and handling. If you think you can live with the shortcomings mentioned above, and are eagerly awaiting something like GT for your purple box, this is what comes closest.

    So expect no high graphics standard, no special touch screen features, let alone other renewing stuff. Madagascar just brings you a standard platform game that follows the story of the movie. No more, no less.

    If you enjoy arcade style boxing games where simplicity is a major priority then Black & Bruised is definitely for you. It's certainly enjoyable and the characters that populate the game look wonderful and ooze personality.
