    Ardent puzzlers will love the complexity and variety of the puzzles; others may find them a little too difficult and frustrating at times.

    Fair's fair, Shrek the Third is a long way from being all out terrible; the game just occasionally feels unpolished and unloved. Still, young kids will love controlling all the leading characters from the film and collecting all the bonus unlockables. It’s just a shame there wasn’t a little bit more to see and do in far, far away.

    If it wasn’t for the bugs and unforgiving gameplay it would be one to recommend. As it is you’ll be better suited going for some of the more tried and tested games to quash any racing fixes.

    Do you really want to have to learn three pages of voice commands just so that you can sit in front of the computer and sound stupid?

    The story is very good and the puzzle numerous and that is the point of the game really. We would think it would have a quite select fan base that would really enjoy it but its mass appeal may be limited.

    Ultimately Buzz: Quiz TV plays like a hollow, broken shell of a once classic game with so much potential yet very little of it actually realised.

    There is a lot to like with Cold War but for every great feature you spot you'll come across another one that just doesn't work. It's a shame, as at times the title shows great promise.

    There is not much here to hold an adult for long, but be warned this game takes up a hell of a lot of space on your hard drive its over 1GB installed and over 50% of this is game textures which is a little bit much when you see the graphics.

    The game installs completely to your hard drive so there is no need to put a CD in once the game is installed, I wish more games did this.

    The idea of a Cold War Russian agent infiltrating the ‘enemy’s’ sector could (and should) have been so much more, but the frustration and abundance of small flaws induced by Hammer and Sickle sadly point to another missed opportunity in our books.

    At the moment though, the game is simply far too flawed to be recommended.

    Fans of the series will probably gain the most enjoyment but its still not as good as the classic versions all those years ago. Everyone else should look elsewhere for their kicks I’m afraid.

    Short lived fun with a nice addition of concept art pictures being included as an extra, giving the game that little bit more depth but sadly just not enough.

    Kingdom of Fighters was an interesting experiment but its impact, I’m sorry to say, will be less than to the maximum.

    Star Trek Encounters isn’t really worthy of it’s license. It seems to be stuck together by black holes instead of a plot, which would’ve so easily have been afforded with all of the various Treks at their disposal.

    All in all I’d have to say avoid. The camera is a real let down.

    There is really nothing wrong with the GBA rendition of the popular TV show but really nothing that jumps at you and screams "buy me" either.

    Digimon: Rumble Arena 2 isn't a bad title if you are obsessed with the TV and toy counterpart; it has pretty good graphics, destructible arenas and decent enough multiplayer modes.

    The music is nothing special, and is noticeably looped during the game; a feature which I thought was safely banished to the days of the Amiga.

    A simple, yet challenging and to be honest very enjoyable turn based strategy game that is so badly let down by poor production values that it almost ruins the game.

    The magic of the 2D versions have all but been lost in a search for technical accomplishment and it suffers terribly for it.

    With Ace Combat already in the skies we have to wonder why would bother with this below-par in-flight entertainment.

    Overall the Empire Earth series has been a solid strategy title, but Mad Doc have tried to simplify things and have taken it far too far and perhaps destroyed what people wanted in their RTS title.

    This feels entirely more suited to a Mission Impossible branding than the men of string and wood, and unless you have some very enthusiastic fans amongst the small folk it's one to avoid.

    What it does feature (in large amounts) is lazy, un-inspiring map design, shoddy AI and pathfinding and ridiculous infantry micro-management. Hardly the groundbreaking improvements that the paying gamer demands these days, and we certainly don't blame them.

    There is nothing that really stands out and grips you by the throat even though it tries's very hard to. Couple the bad sound effects with an average game and a £30 price tag and I would say put down the box and pick up the copy of "Doom 3" if you havent already.

    There’s a distinct lack of sand for those who flock to the Olympic tournaments and too little action for the casual gamer.

    It is very much ‘the game of the book’ and as such has to be played as events in the book dictate.

    Newcomers really should steer clear though, if you must have a game based on assassinations, you would be better off seeking out Agent-47 instead.

    The lack of any online multiplayer (again!), the fact this is still basically the same game and the removal of the tactics side means this game is quite simply not worth buying.

    If Grissom really loves his insects he'll be at home here as CSI: Crime Scene Investigation is literally filled with bugs. Problems with the mechanics made matching DNA and other samples an absolute nightmare.

    I’m sure there’s humour and enjoyment in this title somewhere but I think it’s that of a slightly dysfunctional thirteen-year-old boy – quite a narrow market to be aiming for.

    It does make you think what kind of flower power evil dictator would create such laughably psychedelic set of robots.

    It is rushed, cheap looking, repetitive and gets old fast, and for the price it’s not worth it.

    The fixed camera problem is actually so bad at times that you could spend a considerable amount of time working your way to a top of a building only to plummet back down to earth again.

    The towns have a distinct Playmobil air about them, the facades of the buildings looking more Kloppa Castle than Windsor Castle, and the personnel hugely dated and childlike.

    The main problem I have with coming out and labelling it a ‘kid’s game’ however, is not just the Spy vs Spy premise, but the sheer un-likeableness (if I can invent that word) of the two protagonists.

    It could have been done so much better, there are so many little flaws that add up to a missed opportunity for a decent game. The graphics and physics are very good but the faults with it cancel these out.

    Started with brilliant presentation and gameplay and deteriorated from that point on. Although the novel twist of trying to save the ‘bad’ kids does add something for fans of the book, they’ll be advised to rent this title before the sugar sweet memories turn into a sour aftertaste after shelling out for this lacklustre platformer.

    The problems are even more compounded because, on the 360, this is supposedly a next generation game, it simply isn’t. Even Superman will struggle to save this disjointed effort from the bargain bin and only hardened collectors should seek out this disaster.

    Yes that's right, it's boring. A card based game lasting ten minutes is ideal for filling in during break time, mighty convenient whilst waiting for the bus to turn up, even a mild diversion from the stares of fellow passengers when on the bullet train, but just plain old dull when sitting in the house on your own at ten o'clock at night.

    There’s no denying that the game lacks variety, speed or, on the most basic level, well thought out gameplay.

    In the end a blatant rip off like this could only happen on a console or handheld. Imagine what would happen if this was released today on the PC for £15 in this state? There would be a riot.

    Every aspect of it is extremely poor and badly thought out which is reflected in the shortness of this review.
