    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).

    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.

    The combat is very predictable and lacks any notiable originality.

    However even the appeal of Cosmic Family will be short-lived to any demographic as it is very much on the short side. Rather than being a complete box set of a whole television series (or even a few shows) it is probably best summed up as an interactive episode.

    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.

    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.

    This belongs at the bottom of the bargain bins to rot for all eternity.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    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.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    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.

    That's the thing about Transformers: The Game, while there are bits and pieces of fun here and there, it's overshadowed by the complete and utter rushed and unfinished feel to everything else.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    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.

    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.

    Gamestyle is sure that die-hard, DS owning Potter fans will buy this game, and maybe even enjoy it a tiny bit, regardless of what we say here. For the rest of us though, this is one to steer clear of. Repetitive, tedious wandering and only marginally entertaining mini-games do not a proper game make.

    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.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    It is a faithful port of the original version, but lacks any worthwhile additions or game play to keep you coming back for more.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    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.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    It is not something that we can recommend experiencing, as even for fans this instalment does little to push ahead or celebrate both games.
    • 60 Metascore

    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.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The presentation values are immense, but the whole inner workings of the game are nothing short of a disaster.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    It'll need serious steroids and gym work before it can be considered a contender.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    More depth and some playability, magically matched to a worthwhile control system is what is required here.
    • 35 Metascore

    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.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    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.
    • 74 Metascore

    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.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    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.
