    • 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
    A shadow of one of the former masters of survival horror, that is better equipped to bore than scare.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Even committed fans are likely to be disappointed by this lazy and largely unnecessary rehash.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A brave mix of RPG, action game and spy thriller, brought down by too many design and technical faults.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    It looks and sounds the part but this anime tie-in should've worried about more than just presentation.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Vin Diesel proves not to have the magic touch after all, with this technically inept Driver wannabe.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    To add to its problems the game is also surprisingly ugly, often looking much more like an original Xbox game.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    There's barely enough time to rail at the missed opportunities in one of the least substantial games ever.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The Drudge are a sadly appropriate named for the enemy in this artless grind of a first person shooter.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A game insensitive to both the subject matter and the need to offer any real variety or intrigue.
    • 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.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Turning Castlevania into a one-on-one fighter is a dumb idea but at least this tries to be different.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    It certainly looks and sounds the part but this downloadable game is just as shallow as most retail tie-ins.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Disappointing sequel that manages to undo the relative successes of the original and dishonour the film.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    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.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    One of the best looking DS games ever made, but the gameplay just dosen't live up to the visuals.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Mama's sideline in gardening proves to be just as shallow and repetitive as her cookery courses.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    It doesn't do anything new, it doesn't fix any old problems and it's not very substantial. There are a lot of better ways to spend £6.80 on Xbox Live.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    3D graphics may be the future, but this dull beat 'em-up is unlikely to convince you of the fact.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A step in the right direction, but still nowhere close to being the ideal Transformers game.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    For a Dynasty Warriors game this is fairly innovative, but only if you have three friends to play with.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The switch to turn-based strategy works perfectly but only fans will tolerate the endless cut scenes.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Flawed racer which finds little of interest in its massive open world - least of all the race cars.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Another classy retro conversion but Rare's platforming sequel feels older than it looks.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    If Crystal Skull made the original films look better, then this does the same for Fate Of Atlantis.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A pale shadow of the original turning a perfectly constructed platformer into a bland retread.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Hopefully the future of Fable won't be any more downloads, as this is another waste of both time and money.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The trailers may make the film look like a live action Halo but the game plays nowhere near as well.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    An interactive movie where the gameplay is as basic and two-dimensional as the story and acting.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The final slice of downloadable content is just as shallow in its gameplay and ambition as before.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Virtual On on a budget, with a fully functioning online mode but very little depth or longevity.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The last of the Fallout 3 expansions is also one of the worst in this bafflingly dull abduction yarn.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Even if you enjoy Roguelikes this must be the worst special edition ever, with almost no new features.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The worst Guitar Hero spin-off yet with a half-hearted tribute to a band who barely deserved one anyway.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    For those that don't remember the original this retro remake will likely prove a little too old school.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Some thought has clearly gone into making this an entertaining game, but sadly not enough money or time.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The limitations of the PSP and a wrong-headed emphasis on combat ruin an otherwise promising spin-off.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The movie quiz series goes multiformat and low budget with less features and generally less fun.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A real misstep for Level-5, with tedious battles and an equally uninteresting plot and characters.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Yet another slice of downloadable content that's well below the quality of its parent game.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    If you're tired of music games this peculiar platformer is no reason to keep your plastic axe either.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    One of the Wii's best-looking games, but this role-playing hybrid is all atmosphere and no substance.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The real survival horror here is enduring the repetitive scares and gameplay all the way to the end.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Despite a few interesting ideas this never manages to relive the glory days of top-down racing.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Bizarre sliding block puzzler that despite numerous issues is oddly more tolerable than it should be.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Only the smallest of improvements on the original game and still a shameful waste of the license.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Compare The Pikmins.com will be overloaded once people tire of this well-meaning but dull wildlife sim.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The corpse of Symphony Of The Night proves far too putrefied to work as a co-operative platformer.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A class BioWare download: short, pointless and missing everything that made the original interesting.
    • 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.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Red Dead Redemption is a great single player game, but this only emphasises the mediocre multiplayer.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    By no means the worst mini-game collection there's ever been but in terms of genuine party entertainment it's only a few steps above the Tory Conference.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    You don't need to be a Front Mission fan to get upset about the wasted potential in this lifeless, one-dimensional shooter.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Unquestionably the best Dynasty Warriors style game so far, but at its core it's still just as shallow and repetitive as any of Koei's games.
    • 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.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    No matter how the new movie turns out this tie-in makes all the usual mistakes with bland, unoriginal action and an incoherent narrative.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    It's good to see Assassin's Creed having a positive influence on game settings but this historical would-be epic has little else to recommend it.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Three obscure lightgun games and the world's most unpopular online shooter do not exactly prove a great showcase for PlayStation Move.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Innerspace meets Smash T.V., except retaining only the worst elements of both in this slow-paced and tedious dual-stick shooter.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A poorly thought out attempt to take on Call Of Duty and Battlefield, whose main gimmick is as a flawed as its other elements are overfamiliar.
    • 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.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    In summary we don't think we've ever seen so many good ideas in such a bad game. The spell and crafting system really is amongst the best the genre can offer, but everything else is amongst the very worst.
    • 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.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    As a quick and dirty port this is no disgrace but it doesn't make any meaningful use of the 3DS's functions or the concept's potential.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    An ill-conceived port of a game that seems to make little sense on the 3DS, especially given the compromises in controls and graphics.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    It looks and controls like the originals, but this lacks anything of the challenge, design flair or variety of a really super Monkey Ball.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Micro Machines meets Geometry Wars, but so phenomenally less interesting than that sounds it's almost painful.
    • 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.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Gears Of War meets Diablo turns out not to be a classic pairing after all, or at least not when it comes to this low rent hotchpotch of other people's ideas.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Backwards sequel that sabotages or removes all the best features from the last game and wastes one of the best arsenals in gaming.
    • 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.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    As repetitive and predictable as any movie tie-in, but the core combat is sound and Green Lantern's powers are handled well.
    • 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.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A silly premise with some very clever ideas, but unfortunately none of them are implemented well enough to help this one-on-one fighter make history.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Horribly disappointing spin-off that replicates the formula but not the soul of the low budget rentakill shooter.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    All its best bits are clearly stolen from Batman: Arkham Asylum, but for a movie tie-in this still counts as above average.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    There are number of clever concepts here, but they're left drowning in a sea of mediocre first person shooting and action movie clichés.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    An interesting and original shooter, but one that never has enough ideas or challenge to justify the price of admission.
    • 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.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The excitement and flow of rugby is there, but the numerous technical and budgetary limitations see the game's aim go wide.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    An admirable attempt to create a 'real' game for Kinect, but despite the simple arcade style gameplay the technology just can't keep up.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Disappointing follow-up to the already lightweight Shattered Dimensions, which seems to go out of its way to waste all the potential of the character(s).
    • 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.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A peculiar multimedia bundle that features a near worthless HD update, a paid-for demo and a terrible CGI movie. Fighting game fans can do a lot better.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The cinematic approach makes sense on paper but it means Telltale Games aren't able to play to their strengths and the end result seems doomed to extinction.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    It's nice to see someone is making a new Pikmin game, but this half-hearted clone has neither the variety nor the imagination of its considerably cuter inspiration.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The production values seem to justify the high price but this is an annoyingly awkward mix of third person action and Tower Defence, which never really gels.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    An unbearably bland arena-based shooter that only manages to make the Quake-style action seem more old-fashioned and irrelevant than ever.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The laziest HD collection yet, with just two titles from an eight game franchise, neither of which have been recreated with anything like the effort and care they deserve.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    It's been a long time since we've had a decent Star Wars game though and this miserable misfire is very much more Attack Of The Clones than it is Empire Strikes Back.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    It's a great idea, and filled with some top grade Suda51 weirdness, but Kinect is nowhere near accurate enough to make even such a simple game work properly.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    There's plenty of potential and good ideas here but very little fun, in a game that tries to make a pirate's life seem as frustrating and repetitive as possible.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A classic case of a racer that doesn't know whether to be a simulation or arcade game and in the end never ends up a satisfying example of either.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The visuals are amazing but the game's moral quandaries are impossible to care about without any context, let alone any decent gameplay or controls.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A disappointing misstep for Harvest Moon's sister series, where neither monster fighting nor crop planting offers any real entertainment or variety.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    First person shooters clearly do work on the PS Vita, but proving that fact is the only real achievement of this otherwise insipid portable experience.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    There's a decent a story to be salvaged here, and one that could happily be adapted for the show, but as a video game this fails miserably.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The problem with the latest Kingdom Hearts is not a lack of new ideas but that almost all of them are awful, and that's before you even consider the script.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Tony Hawk's Pro Skater in name only, this will infuriate old timers reliving their youth and seem archaically simplistic to everyone else.
    • 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.
