    It is not something that we can recommend experiencing, as even for fans this instalment does little to push ahead or celebrate both games.

    Due to its target audience, it's understandable that EA Playground is easy, but it's inexcusable to have games that are only made challenging by their bad design.

    The presentation values are immense, but the whole inner workings of the game are nothing short of a disaster.

    It'll need serious steroids and gym work before it can be considered a contender.

    More depth and some playability, magically matched to a worthwhile control system is what is required here.

    The 2.5D graphics are quite nice and it captures the character and environment well, but overall we can only really recommend this to parents who want to shut their kids up for five minutes.

    With a tight release schedule, developing a game based on a movie will inevitably involve a degree of compromise, but creating a game that feels unfinished and distinctly rushed isn't acceptable.

    Eat Lead wants to be recognised as this post-modern mockery of all those big budget and casual games that sell rather well. But it’s not, it’s just some guy who thinks he’s rather clever, telling obvious jokes that everyone gets that got old two years ago.

    Simply put there just isn’t enough game here to justify paying full price.

    You cannot criticise for Sony for trying something new by supporting this endeavour, but sadly .detuned only scratches the surface of what may have been possible.

    The new title feels like it was made by someone who has only ever seen Youtube videos of the 2D Sonic games and taken a very poorly educated guess on how it should control.

    When developers start stripping away essentials because the hardware cannot handle the strain, you must question the reasoning behind it. Was it really worth subjecting a world of gamers to this mess that barely resembles the original for the sake of a quick fare?

    xXx
    A shoddy piece of license work with flashes of potential (which the film has in bundles) but too much is gaming by numbers, and overall it leaves you cold.

    Without doubt the worst Mega Man game ever created. It lacks fun, lacks skill and it lacks substance, and will have you hooked for all of 10 minutes.

    Beyond the use of sound effects and architecture as seen in the film this does rank as one of the poorest film licenses I have endured.

    An extremely large turkey. And one that any Potter fan would do well to avoid, even if it means waiting a tad longer for the next "proper" game to follow Chamber of Secrets.

    A device for mental torture. And even the most diehard fans of the series would have to be truly blinkered to believe that this game was worthy of the licence. Put simply, it's nothing but a travesty.

    As a fan of the series, the game was horrible to play, and this review was heart-breaking to write. For purely sentimental reasons, this was one of the games that fans would have been desperate to see succeed. Somewhere along the line, we were all let down. What makes it worse are the occasional flashes of a good game that flash through.

    Try hitting your head against a brick wall for about half an hour instead.

    A shocking game; a turgid stinking pool of primordial ooze that would take millions of years to evolve into something that is worth using as a doorstop, let alone playing.

    The game is as ugly as the Neanderthal wrestlers in it. Despite this I’ve still noticed it slows down at times.

    Convincing voice-acting and a humorous (if puerile) script cannot do enough to disguise the fact that this is an utterly vacuous game.

    In conclusion there is absolutely nothing to recommend about this Spy vs Spy.

    Quite frankly, Superman Returns on the DS is abysmal. If you consider paying for it, or even asking for it for Christmas, you deserve to have a huge slab of radioactive green Kryptonite enter the Earth's atmosphere and smack you right on the head.

    This is absolutely awful. The Sonic franchise has been dragged through the dirt so often, and this serves to add insult to injury. This game is utterly bland, soulless and broken beyond repair.

    Is there anything good about Alone in the Dark? The fire effects are stunning and the music theme is quite good. Other than that though, nothing.

    The Xbox 360 certainly needs more titles from the Japanese development community, but Bullet Witch is far from a show of support.

    So while this could be construed as the first Wii budget release, to date it’s certainly the worst release for the system.

    Really, The Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer is a mess and a frighteningly terrible video game.
    • 55 Metascore

    It’s all pointless though because the writers of the TV show have since said that this game doesn’t even take part in the official chronology, making this nothing more than glorified fan fiction.
