    Naturally, nothing can currently compete with the current industry leaders, but with a little time and a lot of bug spray, Vanguard will surely rise far enough through the ranks to challenge the titans for their crowns.

    Don’t bother buying this game, it's nothing you haven't seen before.

    If you like your puzzlers and/or have a soft spot for Japanese/English curios, then you'll probably quite enjoy this. But as a full-price PSP game it does leave a bit to be desired.

    Short, cute, enjoyable games created with simplicity in mind and offset by a few bugs and an ultimately empty feeling. As it is you will find much to like here, just don’t expect it to last.

    UFO isn’t perfect, but it does breathe enough life into a genre that hasn’t seen enough action recently. You could do a lot worse.

    There is technically nothing wrong with Galactic Assault, it just lacks so much that it quickly becomes frustrating.
    • 68 Metascore

    What this game lacks in manners it makes up for in depth, what it makes up for in depth it almost gets taken away from in the AI’s incompetence. Almost. As is, Space Empires V is terrifying in its scope and utterly absorbing if you can get through the maze-like issues it comes with.

    If you loved H&D 2 but are wondering if there’s any point buying this – the co-op feature makes this well worth the purchase and will see you take up your addiction once again.

    A very pretty title, one of style over substance. It doesn’t even try particularly hard to have substance; the objectives are there to provide some vague structure.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Overall, there’s no doubt about it, for original thinking, sheer enjoyability and taking steps that any developer would do well to follow, Blood Will Tell gets a comfortable must-buy rating.

    Aside from a few minor flaws in gameplay mechanics and AI, which Ubisoft is rectifying, Faces of War is a fresh take on an old classic.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The humour is immature and unfunny to anyone over the age of 13 (which negates the game's 15+ age rating). The tennis is frustrating and flawed, and simply not up to the standards of the best of the genre.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It has a fine mixture of humorous moments, special effects and seemingly random solutions that are sure to make it a cult classic. All you need to get through it is a few old episodes of MacGyver, a spare mouse and a Nancy Drew mystery novel.

    You’ll need a very forgiving attitude to begin playing Sword of the New World, because it still needs quite a bit of work.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 35 Critic Score
    It’s a mystery how two such very different games manage to share so many things in common. In away it’s almost a relief that Maximum Impact 2 is so poor, as it allows XI to bask in its own glory, an example of how the 2D fighting genre isn’t dead and hopefully an opportunity for younger gamers to appreciate the concept of gameplay being greater than eye-candy.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    Mission objectives are the standard “find this” and “hit switch” variety and almost feel like an afterthought to break up the mindless slaughter.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    With so many other exciting games on the horizon, this series as a whole requires a serious overhaul before it truly falls into a pit of mediocrity, something that this latest versions misses by a few inches.
    • 66 Metascore

    The concept feels fresh and the idea of using formations of tiny robots to solve puzzles is in some ways inspiring. It’s such a shame that the game's potential was never fully realised and that the overall experience should be spoiled by silly camera problems.
    • 65 Metascore

    I think the real problem here is not that anything is bad per se, but that it really has all been seen before.
    • 65 Metascore

    Given how fast and exciting jet fighters are by their very nature, it takes a real effort (or in this case, lack of one) to make a game about them as pedestrian as this. Modified Air Combat Heroes? Mediocre Aeroplane Crap Hour, more like.

    My thumbs haven’t gotten this good a workout in a long time and I haven’t even mentioned the cutscenes because they’re just too creamily good to describe.

    Painkiller Overdose is definitely for fans of the series. Frantic blasting action might not suit everyone but you can't really knock it until you've tried it.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Overall this game can’t really decide whether it’s strategy or arcade and consequently doesn’t really work as either, being too generic and limited as a fighting game and with not enough depth to be a really good turn-based strategy game.
    • 64 Metascore

    The bitter irony of this game is that, despite the purpose of videogames being to relieve one from boredom, this one will actually drive you further into the depths of tedium.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    What this game lacks is substance. The missions, the plot and so on are as easily thrown together as they are to complete. The quick bursts of fun to be had here are indeed intense, and are partially flanked by excellent graphics, but there’s no longevity in a paper-thin premise. Arcade gaming yes, just not in the maddeningly addictive sense.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    It's a really short game that, in the end, feels like a horribly drawn-out tutorial chapter of a bigger, better title.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 35 Critic Score
    It has a fantastic score, an excellent cast and some genuinely good ideas, but its inability to find balance between narration and game, along with poor execution, means that this is one purple headed monster you won’t want to be playing with.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    While the stealth mechanic is implemented fairly well, and enemy AI at least stands up to initial tests, there’s just far too little excitement throughout the entire course of play.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    It’s still far from perfect – poor graphics, camera problems, AI all take their toll – but they took a bold step and it largely paid off.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Gothic 3 is a game that punches above its weight. To a certain degree it holds out well against competing RPG games but with so many bugs and lingering issues, it would be wise to hold off for a while until the dust settles.
