    It doesn’t do what it says on the tin, doesn’t break any barriers and is mildly dull as often as interesting but when you’re in the middle of crossfires, your squads do what they’re told and you know that you’re about to blow up a whole mess of Nazis, it’s pretty good.

    TrackMania DS is a decent attempt to bring a treasured PC title to the DS, and while two of the three modes are pretty playable, it never rises above ‘competent’.

    Tenchu is a fun PSP effort so long as you think of it as an all-new take on the franchise. The levels you play through are self- contained puzzles and not wide-open ninja-filled action-fests. If you prefer stealth to pure swordplay, you'll surely appreciate this approach.

    It’s just too hit and miss, too divorced from its stated purpose and is too anaemic in its dispensation of the funk.

    If you're not fussy, like your button-mashy beat-em-ups and are addicted to either Wolverine or Hugh Jackman's tank-like physique, you'll get the most out of this. It's God of War with claws and an equally bloodthirsty attitude; flawed, fun and fairly brainless gaming.

    The accuracy of the shooting is a little off – even though the 5-point calibration aims to fix this. The gun is only suited to righties or the ambidextrous, too.

    Avatar ultimately falls down as a game. It's just not that interesting, compelling or fun.

    There was a lot of meat here, and most of it never played out as it should've.

    Pretty average in most respects, failing to stand out in any one category. It's kind of boring, poorly structured, mostly linear and, shock, it still reeks of cash-in, despite moderate production values.

    Web of Shadows is, despite good intentions and some cute ideas, pretty average in most respects, failing to stand out in any one category. It's kind of boring, poorly structured, mostly linear and, shock, it still reeks of cash-in, despite moderate production values.

    A decent but unpolished strategy game built around a technological concept that only sort of works in any practical sense. An amiable attempt, but a far cry from victory.

    Unrelentingly mediocre and unrelentingly derivative. Turok is not a bad game, but almost every element, from the visuals to the weapons, the AI and the level design are regressive.

    The automatic nature of the combat almost mirrors Too Human's approach to gameplay as a whole: this is autopilot gaming: routine revival, hand-held progression, a loot free-for-all and a microwave dinner storyline.
    • 64 Metascore

    Sadly, the positives don’t outweigh the negatives, with the clunky gameplay, poorly structured missions and woeful AI making this game more of a chore to play than a joy.

    Videogame versions of board games have not killed off the real thing. If Blood Bowl for Xbox 360 is the best the medium can offer, then they never will.

    It's got so much potential that, when you kick into hard mode and start noticing the touch screen's inaccuracy, the awkward hand contortions needed or the ill-conceived Duel Mode controls, you'll shake your head and wonder where everything went awry.

    The cities are bland and generally uninteresting, but the cars look good and they handle well. That's normally half the battle. If you haven't played a NFS title in the past four years or so, Undercover might be a good place to get back on board.

    For Wii Sports diehards, Wii Sports Resort will be worth a look, but for the rest of us – especially those who’ve thrashed Bowling to death already, this is a patchy offering more notable for its missed opportunities than its successes.

    Pardon the bad pun, but this one left us cold.

    Ultimately, Battle March has added a new single player campaign, a little meat to the multiplayer, and two new factions to take control of.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 62 Critic Score
    It's not a terrible game at all. It's simply that it's such an ordinary and unremarkable shooter, and we were expecting so much, that we can't help but bitch about all the areas we wish were better.

    Afro Samurai isn't awful. It's just awfully average.

    It's sad – there is still a lot of potential here, so hopefully someone can nab the rights and do this series justice down the line.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    The game may not have many redeeming features, but at least with a friend you can laugh together at the AI or attempt to make your own fun. Army of Two isn't terrible, but we're hard pressed to find a decent reason to recommend it.

    Sega Superstars Tennis just screams missed opportunity. With a strong selection of classic Sega games to draw inspiration from and such a charming cast of characters on hand, it's depressing to find the core mechanics so shallow and the overall game design so slap-dash.
