    A ton of video game references and cultural in-jokes… but as always and once again, it turned out to be quite a juicy guilty pleasure.

    The strong visual style is yet again backed up by the all-purpose Renderware engine; environments are highly-detailed, the resolution is crisp and the lighting effects are startling. The sound too is impressive.

    Despite a few niggling problems Max had lost none of his charm and this title comes highly recommended to both Payne and shoot'em up fans a like.
    • 73 Metascore

    As for size, the game suffers because it lacks the depth of its competitors, but it still manages to offer more playable hours than the previous three EA Lord of the Rings releases.

    It's easy to pick up and play with a fair spread of checkpoints throughout the levels which works well for the quick bursts required with mobile games.

    Wii Sports Resort is a fantastic showpiece for MotionPlus, and the one thing that Gamestyle takes away from its time with the game is the possibility of what it could lead to.

    An enjoyable enough experience, but is perhaps too reminiscent of the "Medal Of Honor series."
    • 85 Metascore

    Gamestyle would like to say NeverSoft have done the series proud, but the truth is everything that's great about this game has simply been taken from Harmonix's template, and the new stuff that has been added almost saps the enjoyment back out of it.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It will undoubtedly prove enjoyable for those new to the series, but anyone expecting a fully-fledged sequel might be sorely disappointed.

    Tiger Woods 09 certainly has a lot of life in it. A good online mode and lengthy career will easily keep golf enthusiasts hooked until the next edition.

    By being different and daring and altogether difficult, it has alienated many. But by sticking to their (un-)fashionable guns, their purist vision and actually getting the game out there (with a Mature rating, no less), Capcom have created something of worth - and something worth remembering for years to come.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There's enough levels to provide a bit of variety to the single player modes but multiplayer is definitely where it's at, and always has been.
    • 67 Metascore

    Germinator is pretty much a one trick pony, but that particular trick is fun and challenging, it is a low price and you will get some decent value. It is a game that is worth picking up as a nice accompaniment to your existing catalogue for when you fancy something a little less meaty.

    Whilst Dead Money felt like a riskier shot, this piece of DLC is an altogether safer bet on an established norm.
    • 86 Metascore

    The lack of an Xbox Live option is especially disappointing, as there will be no opportunity to correct outstanding bugs nor offer fans an additional planet or mission(s) to download.

    Backbreaker doesn't do anything wrong as such and it seems to tick all the right boxes, it just feels a little flat as a package, it will be played for a good solid period then will likely be forgotten about as newer titles come out. You'd be foolish to not even give this game look though.

    The soundtrack and the effects (towns are deadly quiet) are a missed opportunity, with the occasional repetitive dialogue heightening the failure to grasp what could have been achieved.

    Overall, there’s no denying that La Mulana is both an excellent platform game and a great addition to the Vita’s catalogue. However, it is very tough and obscure at times.

    Perhaps one of the most unique, stylish and absorbing games for the DS, and remains one of the best adventure titles for the system. Whether this says a lot about the game or rather the dearth of alternative adventure games is another matter; but given a chance Hotel Dusk will almost certainly keep you hooked to the end.

    If you go into 400 Days expecting the same intense, emotional, roller coaster of a ride that Season 1 produced then you could be disappointed. With characters leaving almost as quickly as they are introduced there’s no time to get any sort of attachment, particularly when playing as a different person in each chapter. Keep your expectations in check however and there’s still plenty to get out of 400 Days, with an ending that could tie into the next season, this is still a worthy chapter in the series.

    A fun game that lacks a slight spark, but is still worth picking up.
    • 74 Metascore

    Dying Light shares much with Dead Island, some would probably say a little too much, but it cuts away a lot of the septic flesh and binds the wounds with some new (if not entirely fresh) ideas.

    LEGO Jurassic World follows the tried and tested formula but is missing that little bit of magic, despite John Williams’ amazing score being part of the expereince.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Doesn't offer much more than genre traditionalism in the wake of its contemporaries, but it's a nostalgic look back at how this fantastic series started, and has enough hours of playtime locked away to make it more than worthwhile.

    Splice is a game that will cause you great amounts of stress, but also rewards you with a sense of accomplishment.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Wonderful character design, superb visuals and old-school gameplay all unite to form an excellent PSP title.
    • 45 Metascore

    Sometimes it isn't a bad thing to be a one trick pony, especially when that trick is as well executed as it is here.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While the game is trivially easy and it's frustrating that so many of its mistakes were easily avoidable, the fun combat, huge variety of missions, great graphics and instant likeability make this a little gem of a game that comes recommended.

    Ronin is a good game, with an excellent idea for combat that is slightly devalued by an almost absolute need to stealthily take out enemies before entering battle. It frequently reminds you that this is not a stealth game but it is with stealth that you often make the best progress.

    Yakuza 3 is another strong entry in a series that deserves your time.
