    Most of the good stuff is in the second half, but get there and the substance stars to match the style. [June 2015, p.62]

    Firaxis has made some significant, exciting changes, but has also obscured vital information. [Christmas 2016, p.70]

    • 87 Metascore
    • 71 Critic Score
    Rearmed looks good but doesn't quite hold the charm of the original. [Oct 2008, p.85]

    • 87 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    An overly restrictive and often embarrassing career mode undermines the excellent gameplay. [Dec 2015, p.72]

    Seems a tad pricey. [Dec 2011, p.89]

    Teeth-grindingly annoying film noir-style narration over EVERYTHING you do. [Nov 2011, p.91]
    • Games Master UK
    • 86 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    Polished, funny and endearing, yes. Essential? Not quite. [Oct 2013, p.80]
    • Games Master UK
    • 85 Metascore
    • 71 Critic Score
    A real disappointment. Has looks to take the breath away but the action is powder-puff light. [Jan 2009, p.66]

    • 84 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    Toughie, this. Plump for Wii for gameplay but PS3 and 360 if you're into visuals/online. [Aug 2010, p.92]
    • Games Master UK
    • 84 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Needlessly muddy visuals and slightly unresponsive controls. [Oct 2010, p.84]

    It's one for the long-term fans. [Oct 2014, p.66]

    • 60 Critic Score
    Dante doubters be damned, this is a rollicking good twitcher reborn. [April 2015, p.60]
    • Games Master UK
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    One of the best first-person shooters on mobiles, but controls are still irksome. [Aug 2012, p.86]
    • Games Master UK
    • 83 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    Enthusiastic beat-'em-up good for newbs, but with confused design principles. [June 2013, p.73]
    • Games Master UK
    • 83 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Only average gameplay. [June 2012, p.79]

    • 70 Critic Score
    A simple shooter but its unique looks and sound make it cool. [Mar 2008, p.84]
    • Games Master UK
    • 83 Metascore
    • 69 Critic Score
    Rewarding for Notch fans though it's a little derivative - if The Blockheads were a food, it would be a cube of marmite. [Apr 2013, p.89]
    • Games Master UK
    • 82 Metascore
    • 69 Critic Score
    Not bad, just pointless. [Jan 2012, p.86]

    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Gun turrets and more can be deployed tactically, though relatively ineffectually - unless you play cooperatively with up to four players. [Feb 2012, p.91]
    • Games Master UK
    • 82 Metascore
    • 71 Critic Score
    Vigil obviously love the classics but the end result is a solid enough game that feels last gen. [Feb 2010, p.72]
    • Games Master UK
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Four-player joy, but lone gamers will find something missing. [Dec 2008, p.84]
    • Games Master UK
    • 82 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    A hugely mixed bag. On one hand, it's fantastic that there's a developer so staunchly dedicated to making games that veer towards the artistic while still retaining mechanics we know and enjoy. On the other hand, this is a game full of design decisions that feel stuck in the past, made obsolete years ago. [Jan 2016, p.60]

    Battle is as addictive as ever. [Nov 2014, p.80]
    • Games Master UK
    • 82 Metascore
    • 66 Critic Score
    An ill-conceived expansion of an idea, as wafer-thin as the DVD it's pressed onto. [Nov 2008, p.81]
    • Games Master UK
    • 81 Metascore
    • 69 Critic Score
    Unforgiving and tough, but the exploration of an unusual world can be fascinating. [May 2015, p.63]
    • Games Master UK
    • 81 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    Charming stuff once again from Media Molecule, but the PS4 version can't rekindle its handheld magic. [Nov 2015, p.70]
    • Games Master UK
    • 81 Metascore
    • 71 Critic Score
    Forsaking weapons for furiously fast racing, this is a worthy stand-in - not usurper - to F-Zero GX. [Feb 2016, p.80]
    • Games Master UK
    • 81 Metascore
    • 54 Critic Score
    Good idea but it's not as clever as it likes to think. No one likes a smart arse. [July 2008, p.82]
    • Games Master UK
    • 81 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    An energetic and different shooter that can occasionally be too loud for its own good. [Christmas 2014, p.54]
    • Games Master UK
    • 81 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    Tight and well put together, but lacking the spark to make it linger in the memory. [July 2007, p.80]
