    Even committed fans are likely to be disappointed by this lazy and largely unnecessary rehash.

    3D graphics may be the future, but this dull beat 'em-up is unlikely to convince you of the fact.

    It's all a shame because the central idea of a constantly transforming dungeon is a good one. The actual game that's been constructed around it though is nowhere near good enough.

    Turning Castlevania into a one-on-one fighter is a dumb idea but at least this tries to be different.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    For a Dynasty Warriors game this is fairly innovative, but only if you have three friends to play with.
    • 54 Metascore

    Hearthfire is certainly a download that shatters preconceptions, but only in the sense that it never really allows you to do any of the things you thought it would.

    Depressingly banal in every way, it's not impossible to be entertained by Warfighter but it is impossible to be surprised by it.

    Lords Of Shadow 2 waddles on for 20-odd hours and would’ve been twice the game if it was half the length, with the all the unwanted padding and repetition taken out. It’s such a shame because the first game, and MercurySteam, showed such promise. But this is a huge backwards step and we fear the undead charms of Castlevania may finally have been killed off once and for all.

    Compare The Pikmins.com will be overloaded once people tire of this well-meaning but dull wildlife sim.

    A mix of low budget, (relatively) high ambition, and mediocre execution, Defiance is a hard game to hate but an easy one to lose interest in.

    The trailers may make the film look like a live action Halo but the game plays nowhere near as well.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The movie quiz series goes multiformat and low budget with less features and generally less fun.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A Monster Hunter clone that copies most of the key features but fails to properly balance any of them - or add any proper new ideas of its own.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    An interactive movie where the gameplay is as basic and two-dimensional as the story and acting.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A distressingly old school movie tie-in which instead of making imaginative use of the movie's setting creates only a bland copy of the Lego games.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    About as new as a fossilised dinosaur egg and just about as fast and exciting, this is a depressingly poor degradation of a once great original.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A very poor first person shooter buoyed up by the promise of things to come, and an impressively ambitious attempt at a cross-format connected universe.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Bizarre sliding block puzzler that despite numerous issues is oddly more tolerable than it should be.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Some thought has clearly gone into making this an entertaining game, but sadly not enough money or time.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    It looks and sounds the part but this anime tie-in should've worried about more than just presentation.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Another big budget game more obsessed with impersonating its favourite films than creating any genuinely new script or gameplay ideas.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    An acceptable enough lightgun game, but a poor Ape Escape title. More importantly it's still no reason to own a PlayStation Move.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    SOCOM suddenly feels very old, with a shabby, low content sequel that can't compete with modern shooters.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Outdated action platformer that despite all its talk of madness is far too mundane in both design and visuals to justify its mammoth playing time.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Horribly disappointing spin-off that replicates the formula but not the soul of the low budget rentakill shooter.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Every year this moribund franchise goes without a complete overhaul the more obvious and unacceptable its half-decade old problems become.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Vin Diesel proves not to have the magic touch after all, with this technically inept Driver wannabe.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    It doesn't lack for ambition, but in terms of finesse, innovation and execution this remains a poor advert for HD style shooters on the Wii.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    It’s clearly been made in a hurry and with no more care than the deeply flawed original, which means only the truly zombie-obsessed should apply.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    There are some clever ideas in this strategy role-player but they're suffocated beneath a weight of banal storytelling and tedious battles.
