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

    It is a faithful port of the original version, but lacks any worthwhile additions or game play to keep you coming back for more.

    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.

    Overall, this is a hugely disappointing release from Midway who had seemed to be on an upward trend over the past few years. Hopefully Hour of Victory is the exception, as this should have been binned long before arriving exclusively on the Xbox 360.

    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.

    This proves nothing is infallible, but for such a high profile release you do have to wonder how long this took to put together and why it shipped in such a state.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

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

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

    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.

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

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

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

    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.

    Alien Syndrome is another entry in the catalogue of Wii games that fail to grasp the potential of the system. Simply tacking on a few new controls in a title that could easily have been created twenty years ago is not a winning formula.

    An utterly pointless game.
    • 53 Metascore

    Pretty much a dire, tiresome experience with only one saving grace. The impressive strategy section and length of the empire mode soon give way to the abomination that are the battle confrontations. Leave it on the shelf where it belongs.

    Shrek The Third is best left lying in the bargain buckets, and even then, that's too good a fate for what it actually is.

    Half a game at best and you can only hope this isn’t the good half.

    With the Xbox 360 laying host to several epic Japanese RPG’s of late and the soon to be released Mass Effect. Two Worlds warrants little attention and deservedly so. Amidst the range of options, classes and menus, lurks a promising storyline but while the PC market would have lapped up this five years ago, it deserves to be cast into another dimension.

    After a few long hours of the cast’s banal dialogue, I wished to throw my Vita – or myself – down the nearest staircase. Either would have made it all go away.

    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 combat is very predictable and lacks any notiable originality.

    Its tedious button mashing which is more likely to give you repetitive strain injury than any actual enjoyment, now joined by a largely ineffective strategy element. Avoid.

    There are far better examples on the PSP all of which don’t have you suffer through terrible dialogue, monotonous battling and mind numbingly slow gameplay.

    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.

    If you're a huge fan of Harry Potter and desperate for the latest game in the series, you're best going with the Wii version and avoid this mess.
