    It’s still going to be a long hard struggle to turn Dynasty Warriors into a top quality action game, but this is the first sequel in a long time to feel like it’s actually trying.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Unwanted and unnecessary, but despite the bland third person shooting there’s an unexpectedly light touch to the script that hints at other lost opportunities.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The visuals are incredible, but for a game obsessed with storytelling at all costs the dopey plot and underwritten characters in no way make up for the lack of gameplay.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    It’s depressing that the one modern game that shows the most effort is also the least satisfying to play, but if Sonic is ever to work in three-dimensions Lost World gives no clue as to how it might work.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Spiritual or not this is a poor sequel to the Panzer Dragoon games, and its tame and repetitive action will certainly not win the series any new fans.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Extremely short, extremely dull, and extremely expensive for what it is. Dead Rising 3 may not be the greatest launch game ever but it deserves better than this.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Not nearly as awful as it first appears and a surprisingly effective movie adaptation, that channels much of the same mindless energy as the first two sequels.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    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.
    • 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.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    As bland and unmemorable as 3D platforming gets, and clearly not a Pac-Man game at all – just a cynical piece of tie-in merchandise.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    It always sounded like a bad idea, but although Zelda has inspired one of the best Dynasty Warriors games to date the end result is still well below average by any other standard.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The greatest offence here is not sexism but simply tedium at the game’s shallow action, although while the one note joke lasts it is a funny one.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Impossibly slow 2D shooter whose only worth is to prove what artistry goes into its betters.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    There's a real lack of magic in what is essentially Harry Potter And The Half-Hearted Mini-Game Collection.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The spiritual sequel to Shadow Of Memories has the same time travelling intrigue but less gameplay.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The very obvious problem with using The Sims template on animals is that they don't do very much all day expect eat, sleep and procreate.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A music game so bad you genuinely feel pity for Konami. Just stick to Guitar Hero or Rock Band.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The original god game will find itself short of worshipers, with gameplay that's as old as Methuselah.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    You'll be laughing at, not with, this parody - which perpetuates every cliche it sets out to mock.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    If you aren't sick of zombies yet, you will be after this new attempt at a revamped Zombies Ate My Neighbors.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Horribly unrefined historical romp whose few positive features are outweighed by dull, glitchy questing.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Rock Band's first band specific release is the epitome of dirty deeds done (but not sold) cheap.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A very disappointing comeback for the creator of PaRappa The Rapper, that shows none of his earlier style.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Nintendo hobble their excellent old GameCube sports game with dreadful new motion controls.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    For a game that won an amateur game design contest, this lacks in both imagination and implementation.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Bad film tie-ins are nothing new, but this seems more of a waste than usual given the subject matter.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A steaming pile of robot parts that seems to go out of its way to appear more repetitive than it is.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The first new Star Trek game in years doesn't boldy go anywhere in this cheap and tacky tie-in.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Spore hits an evolutionary dead end, as the "everything sim" becomes just another dull platformer.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    LucasArts may have turned a page lately, but it's still got its cheap and nasty tie-in days bookmarked.
