    Fighting really isn't Sonic's strength - at least not with regard to good gameplay. He needs to be kept on his feet - a balled blur of blue - not flat on his face.

    Imaginative and meticulously-produced, but its flaws are too numerous to recommend over superior pinball titles. For a first-party Nintendo release, this is a poor showing indeed.

    It's a perfect example of a lazily-produced game because the makers thought that the target audience wouldn't notice.

    The large levels are deceptive, as these do not provide freedom to explore. Even the much-maligned "Wild Metal" managed to offer some degree of exploration, and atmosphere.

    Maybe like American Football and Baseball, Whacked is simply going to become another title that many English gamers will simply not get. I know this one didn’t.

    Unrewarding, derivative, insulting and just plain dull, and worse of all, shamefully ignorant of the huge leaps forward in level design, characterisation and game structure and in the last decade, and as such is best avoided.

    The worst issue, however, is the handling - akin to pushing a shopping trolley with one wheel locked, the cars in Group S are just about as twitchy as they can be.

    Where Ubisoft's teams have exponentially raised the bar for squad-based titles, the LucasArts kowtowers have inconsolably brought the entry level down. Troops: step forward and press 'A' at my command. [Sir, yes sir!]

    Two steps removed from the CCG it seeks to emulate, and is unlikely to appeal to anyone but Magic aficionados - and even then it has so cruelly crushed the freedom and essence of the licence that players of 'chess with cards' cannot help but shun it.

    It's a shame that cinema's most iconic monster doesn't get the towering experience he deserves.

    One word describes Ultimate Spider-Man: disappointment.

    Nothing more than an aggressive version of dodge ball, which does contain some initial attraction that unfortunately, quickly, wanes.

    Much improvement will be needed to prevent it from following in the path of many a flightless bird...namely, into oblivion. In the meantime, place R: Racing Evolution on the "endangered species" list.

    With the movie being one of the biggest hits of the year ti date, it is a huge disappointment that the game was so far off the mark. We weren't expecting a God of War game but if done right it could of been pretty damn close. The lore was there, the combat, the possible beautiful worlds and yet somehow it was all overlooked and instead we get a decidely 'ok' game.

    Dead Island is described as a first person action-adventure game, whilst it is definitely first person, the latter two descriptions are misleading, it is action in as much as raising your arm is an action, it is adventure in as much finding toilet roll is an adventure. They should have called it a first person battle of tedium, because it would've been a lot more accurate.

    In conclusion, Defenders had the basis for a good game. The developers have tried something different, but it hasn't worked this time. The gameplay just comes across as uneven. Certain units should be strong against some towers and weak against others and vice versa, instead of every unit bar one being weak against everything. Unfortunately, this game simply comes across as a chore to play, rather than a joy.

    Overall Bellator MMA Onslaught has the base to be a good game, however there are just far too many niggles at the moment. It is a game that feels like another year of development would have worked wonders. Working on the animations so that everything linked together in a more natural way and fleshing out the modes on offer would have made this a worthy purchase. As it is though, it is one to pick up only if you are desperately after a fighting game.

    Do you like Naruto? Great stuff, go nuts, be happy. If you don’t then buy something, anything, else.

    Although, I wish I couldn’t go “ooh”. I wish I went “Bloody hell! Everything’s a God Damn blur!” instead.

    The experience was so bland, uninspired and lacking that high feeling of drama and action that surround F1.

    Full completion of the game takes time, and whilst there are some nice extras on the DVD to unlock, you can't get around the fact that it's time that could be spent doing something far, far better.

    The Godfather is not a total failure, but when the main impetus to play through its missions is to watch the bonus film material, you have to ask what the point is.

    The game play is too repetitive and a combination of poor controls and poor visuals make it frustrating to complete the levels. It's hard to imagine many people, whatever their ages, having the supreme patience to actually sit through more than a few hours of this game.

    If you need a Golden Axe fix you can get the original game with co-op on XBLA for 400 points, and we guarantee it’ll be a more enjoyable experience than Beast Rider, which has only served to put another nail in the coffin of one of Sega’s biggest hits.

    The whole concept of Brooktown High is appealing, but what the developer Backbone Entertainment has done is given us the most boring and lifeless look at high school life imaginable.

    When you get down to the bones of The Sims 2: Pets you can see a good game there, it just gets bogged down by literally the worst loading we've seen in a PSP game ever.

    All we’ll say is this; Konami can sleep easy for another year.

    In the end, it proves too bland and generic for mech enthusiasts and just a poor game for the uninitiated.

    An utterly pointless game.

    If you think this is a short review, you clearly haven't played Cooking Mama (and that's the way it should stay).
