    Potter fans will be disappointed by this lazy attempt that is substandard fare and lacks options. EA Bright Light will have to revolutionise its approach if the franchise is to end on a high.

    Gamestyle found it laughable that this rogue superhero couldn’t jump onto a small ledge simply because it was deemed unnecessary – each time Wolverine was knocked back by an invisible force.

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

    So it’s not a great compendium, but does come with a remote, so that’s a bonus (especially for multiplayer games of Wii Sports with your non-Wii owning friends).

    Over the Hedge is a game that could have very well changed our perception of what to expect in these kids' movie tie-ins; however, after a promising start, it soon became apparent that we were still heading into an average and linear experience, and that's ultimately all that's on offer here.

    So all in all, with the impressive Double Dragon Advance being available since 2003, an arcade perfect version of the original was never going to wow today's audience, even with it's HD graphics & online co-op options.

    Tedious puzzles and boring 'go here and collect this' missions destroy what could have been the most interesting Harry Potter title to date. So, it's another average movie tie-in then. What a surprise.

    Rygar: The Battle of Argus should have been a challenging and thrilling Wii experience, if only more care and attention was put into the final package.

    For those looking for an actual fighting game and not a license, I would suggest extreme caution because this one is quite simply for the fans.

    Sadly Drakengard 2 is a crushing disappointment, even to those that managed to tolerate the first instalment.

    The combat system is extremely shallow, and Gamestyle can find little in depth to favourably commend it.

    It isn't a terrible game, it's just repetitive, flat, murky and rushed out for Christmas.

    Sadly, Bladestorm isn’t an improvement on the Warriors games. An awkward mish-mash of action and strategy, which fails to succeed on either count. The combat is monotonous and the strategy underdeveloped. One to avoid.

    How such a raft of glitches and mistakes and bugs got through the test phase (perhaps the testing team was a group of trained gorillas?) defies reason.

    Wanted: Weapons of Fate with more care and attention would have made for a decent video game.

    While Gamestyle enjoyed the action far more than Joust or more than we actually expected originally, next time someone argues that games were better all those years ago, direct them towards Rampart and see that argument crumble far more quickly than the castle walls.

    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.

    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.

    There are much better Kinect games available and more deserving of your time than this.

    Overall Cars Mater-National is inoffensive and bland enough to keep fans entertained until the next release in the series.

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

    It tries to make the most of a stupid idea, and compared to previous efforts at a 3D Castlevania game it’s quite a triumph.

    Target Liberty is a game so clunky, dated and downright unlovable that between its miserable graphics, woeful presentation and tedious gameplay it feels more like a late-90s budget PC release than a premium PSP game with a price-tag to match, and playing it is as pointless and unrewarding an enterprise as you're likely to get for £30.

    With a next-gen sequel due within the year and Call of Duty 3 providing a comprehensively better experience, why bother wasting your time and money?

    That Warner Bros. actually authorised this Smart Price slice of blandcore to promote the finest film in the Potter canon is doubly tragic.

    So the answer is that there is no worthwhile experience in Rapala Tournament Fishing to be discovered.

    Sega may have tried to bring something new to the sporting genre but they fallen foul of the same problems and clichés that blight many releases for the Wii.

    Teenage zombies isn’t a terrible game, it’s just lazy.

    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.

    chick chick BOOM does a lot of things right. It looks and sounds polished and attractive and the core mechanics have promise. It feels like it deserves better. But comparisons with luminary artillery games are foolish; there are too many imperfections to leave them unmentioned and any multiplayer game that leaves you celebrating the end for the end's sake is a failure. chick chick BOOM could have, should have been so much more: a tremendous shame that it is not.
