    Vin Diesel proves not to have the magic touch after all, with this technically inept Driver wannabe.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Horribly disappointing spin-off that replicates the formula but not the soul of the low budget rentakill shooter.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A brave mix of RPG, action game and spy thriller, brought down by too many design and technical faults.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The limitations of the PSP and a wrong-headed emphasis on combat ruin an otherwise promising spin-off.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Rock Band's first band specific release is the epitome of dirty deeds done (but not sold) cheap.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The fake game hero stars in another fake parody, which hits neither its comedy or gameplay targets.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    SOCOM suddenly feels very old, with a shabby, low content sequel that can't compete with modern shooters.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    There are a few points of interest here but the greatest accomplishment of this lacklustre role-player is making Dragon Quest IX seem even better by comparison.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Despite a few interesting ideas this never manages to relive the glory days of top-down racing.

    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.

    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.

    • 30 Critic Score
    A clever use of head tracking tech is sabotaged by a game that seems specifically designed to subvert it.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The laidback atmosphere and gentle flower tending hide a game that is far too predictable and frustrating to offer any lasting entertainment.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    ModNation Racers was never top draw but this drags a previously competent franchise into the bowls of low budget cash-in hell.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Definitely not the worst multiformat port a Nintendo console has had to endure, but the low frame rate and lack of new features makes it almost entirely pointless.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    This doesn't fix the flaws of the original it simply finds more to keep them company, in a game that's as banal and repetitive as its protagonists' vocabulary.

    • 30 Critic Score
    Pikachu has probably had more exciting adventures visiting the men's room, than in this boring spin-off.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    In many ways just a bog standard movie tie-in, but the potential of the licence and the unscrupulousness of the microtransactions make it seem even worse than it is.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The free web toy gains little from its transformation into a retail game - or in its move to the DS.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A return to the mini-game collection formula proves predictability disappointing, with slightly more complex games but even less variety.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Never mind the sexism, the awful gameplay is the primary reason you should be avoiding this shockingly poor beat ‘em-up.

    Hopefully the future of Fable won't be any more downloads, as this is another waste of both time and money.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    One of the least worst Kinect games this year, which although it suffers from all the usual control issues is at least mindless fun while it lasts.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The Wii U game was just a few flaws short of a minor classic, but this joyless companion piece is only a couple more problems shy of a complete disaster.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    An inexplicably bland shooter from the usually reliable Insomniac that has no personality and no sense of purpose beyond a few hours of empty co-op action.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Cheap, obvious, and unambitious but the zombie theme does at least help to circumvent the technical problems of the original, and offer up some novel co-op options.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    It might be okay on a mobile phone but you'll want to reverse the charges for this on Xbox Live Arcade.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Almost exactly the same features as Dynasty Warriors 7 Empires, and although it’s still more entertaining than the main game the lack of effort put in is downright insulting.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The Lord Of The Rings is yet again denied a decent tie-in, with this desperately uninteresting and half broken action role-player.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The motion controls work well enough but this is an unambitious and needlessly simplistic on-the-rails adventure that does nothing to help Move's cause.
