    It doesn’t have the greatness of George Lucas space saga, but the implicit exploration of the movies allows for a better exploitation of the puzzle element. A fun proposition for all audiences. [July 2008]

    Although there’s some new stuff, it sticks with last year’s formula. Which probably wouldn’t be that bad if the same old problems didn’t remain intact, from the limited AI to the graphical bugs, not forgetting those annoying loading screens. [Dec 2007]

    Far from being revolutionary, it also doesn’t do anything fundamentally wrong that might compromise the experience. In the end, it’s a good online FPS with a more classic feeling, which can please the hardcore fans of this genre and eager to find some great competition online. [July 2008]

    Most of the obstacles will require you to change constantly between characters and thus keeping you occupied. Although level design could need a little more variety it's still a nice proposition for those who like platform games. [May 2008]

    Although it makes good use of the stylus, the combat system is not as good as any of the many alternatives available on the DS. It can be a little repetitive, but if you play in short sessions, it could mean fun to the more patient gamers. [Dec 2007]

    As for party management and battle functionality, the premise of the game is very original. But the rhythm and automatic decision during combat makes them a little boring. It’s a pretty competent turned based strategy RPG that Disgaea and Phantom Brave fans should find interesting. [July 2008]

    Being a kind of update for Race Driver: Create & Race, Race Driver: Grid it’s not the best investment for those who already own the first one. But if you don’t have it, and if you are looking for a “serious” racing game for the DS, this is the one to get. [Sept 2008]

    The way it makes fun of the videogame culture is pure Simpsons genius, but the gameplay gets in the way of all the fun. Fans will still have their Simpsons fix, but the marriage between two different mediums (the TV show and the videogame) doesn’t work out very well. [Nov 2007]

    Some ten mini-games that might entertain you for a while but fail to offer something new when compared with the previous game. But, of course, it’s the Battle mode with up to eight players that will provide all of the fun. [May 2008]

    Although we’re real fans of co-op action, we couldn’t help but to feel disappointed. It’s just not well structured and doesn’t seem to offer any real exciting moments. Some of its mechanics are well implemented, but there are some other cooperative shooters far better than this one that don’t even have to pull these kinds of tricks. [Apr 2008]

    We might say that this game was a bit “unlucky” with its release date, because it can’t measure up with some of the FPS that came out this year. The truth is, although the time controls are a fun idea, everything else is a carbon copy of every other generic shooter out there. [Dec 2007]

    Although it’s not an essential buy, it can very well capitalize on the fever around the Olympic Games. Especially because it has a good amount of competitions, online modes and worldwide rankings. Just a word of advice…your fingers will probably pay a heavy price. [July 2008]

    It could have been a pack of downloadable content for Guitar Hero III. But Aerosmith fans will certainly like it. Some of the tracks are actually fun, mostly due to Joe Perry’s quality as lead guitarist. But it doesn’t add anything new to the franchise. [Aug 2008]

    We live in a complicated age for all sandbox games, after "GTA IV". Saints Row 2 is a victim of that comparison, because while it has some elements that are better than the Rockstar game, it can’t satisfy in the technical aspect. In fact, it has some huge technical issues, which not even the co-op, the good customization tools or the mindless fun allow to be overlooked. [Oct 2008]

    If you’ve enjoyed the previous Turok adventures, you can still find something interesting in this game. Besides fighting dinosaurs with a bow and knife, it’s standard routine stuff, including the set, the human enemy AI and the story. [Feb 2008]
    • Maxi Consolas (Portugal)
    • 59 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It manages to take some advantage from the movie license. Its gameplay is accessible but interesting, with simple puzzles, platform jumps and combo based combats. It will please its target audience. [March 2008]

    It’s a more Schwarzenneger version of the barbarian than the one from the comics. It tries to make the most of its influences (especially God of War) in the form of a competent game for all Conan fans out there. [Nov 2007]

    The stylus might offer some new dynamic to these mini-games, but that doesn’t stop them from being repetitive when played solo. This makes playing with your friend a mandatory condition to enjoy it. [Jan 2008]

    A very peculiar game that takes advantage of the five rules of optical illusion to build puzzles and challenges. The minimalistic design and classic music gives it some personality, but it can become quite frustrating in long sessions. [Aug 2008]

    It’s not a bad game, but it feels somewhat incomplete. It has good ideas for the Wiimote, but it fails to implement them. It has great sceneries but too many slowdowns...To tell the truth, we would rather have waited a few more months for a better result. [Feb 2008]

    The art style and the collection of monsters are their only strengths. It won’t make you buy a PS3 but if you already have one and are into the whole ”gotta catch’em all” theme, it’s worth a try. [Nov 2007]

    With great graphics, great sense of speed, a well balanced gameplay and a more than adequate soundtrack, can we say that Pulse is almost technically flawless? Probably, but only because “lack of innovation” isn’t considered to be a technical attribute. [Nov 2007]
