    I've seen better on older generation consoles.

    Shrek The Third is a decent all encompassing adventure action game which features puzzling , platform and fighting elements. It’s certainly an entertaining game but somewhat on the simple side.

    With some of the puzzles being laborious rather than fun I suggest bringing your brain along with you as well. Overall Head hunter ends up being a very average game.

    Yars' Revenge is a fairly competent shooter and gives new life to a gaming classic. It has a decent story, and looks great on a huge display, but the voice acting and sound really detract from the overall appeal of the product, which in turn sucks the life out of all the action on screen. With a short story, and no real multiplayer, Yars' Revenge is a hard-pressed sell to any but the most die-hard of shooter fans.

    Sadly the implementation and impact on the player the game has will most likely be overshadowed by the numerous flaws. The lack of replay-ablity of the single player, the omission of playing as Lynch for lone players, the poor graphics, terrible enemy AI, and the mundane Havana levels, really kill the single player experience for me.

    With the original receiving praise from some, criticism from others, it was always going to be interesting to see whether or not the issues with the first were going to be addressed and improved upon, and for the most part, Hawx 2 is a definite improvement. Still though, something doesn't feel quite right, and there's something about the series that feels slightly "last-gen" to me, and I can't help but feel like the game could have been so much better.

    Unfortunately other than the Ford licence there is nothing here to really fire you up. Sure if a player wants a quick blast at a racing game then this delivers.

    To sum this up, this game is your standard scrolling shooter, it's nothing special and nothing majorly appalling.

    Ga'Hoole is a rarity in that it's one of those few movie tie-in titles that is actually worth playing.

    One for fans only and should perhaps be avoided by anyone looking for something more.

    Unfortunately for Street Trace there are just far too many better games coming down the road for it to be able to maintain the multiplayer community it will need to succeed.

    Microbot really dazzles the player with its beautiful backgrounds and unique setting, but it doesn't stop it from making it a tedious expedition half way through the game.

    A Marmite sort of game – you’ll either love it or hate it!

    The premise behind Stormrise is pretty decent, commendable in fact as there are some good ideas on offer, yet the execution leaves little to be desired.

    Planet 51 is a game for kids, it’s by no means entertaining, but is the perfect fit for a GTA friendly open world game – perfect training for the later years. The problem is that even youngsters will likely quickly tire of the game, assuming they’ve had the privilege of playing anything that offers up gaming entertainment.

    This is a very nice action puzzle game but after completing the 60 levels, there would not be a lot for me to return to except to play on LIVE, which in turn is quite hard to do as you can’t find many human opponents what with so many other good 360 titles available.

    I suspect that you would be better off renting the game if you are unsure, as the evidence suggests that you might be a little disappointed with the game once you put your finger prints on it.

    With plenty of spooky atmosphere and a gripping tale Still Life is an intriguing prospect although I can really only suggest a rental at best.

    The fluidity of character movement is absolutely horrid as the character you control moves in a sluggish and exaggerated manner.

    This game is worth hiring before you even consider buying for two reasons, the first being that you might actually finish the game over the hire period, and the second reason is to see whether the music will drive you insane.

    Enemy Territory: Quake Wars is a port from the earlier released PC version, and not a very good port at that.
    • 65 Metascore

    The game felt a little like a cheaper more linear version of splinter cell with none of the style and with some hand to hand combat and plat forming moments thrown in for good measure.

    The gameplay is fun enough to make you want to come back, just not fun enough to make you never want to leave. On the bright side, there is co-op play, so if you and a friend are looking to shoot the breeze while you whack away at some bad guys, this just might be your cup of Bancha.

    Due to a lack of diversity and interest within the party games, the extreme shortness of the competition mode and a lack of options within the ‘options’ screen, I’d be surprised if you play this more than thirty minutes a sitting.

    FaceBreaker is perhaps one of the few games that has driven me to despair.

    For a company to follow the typical medieval fantasy fiction in an RPG the title needs to offer features that stand-out; unfortunately, Arcania barely offers a game that is respectfully presentable never mind unique.

    Lord of the Rings: Conquest is an average game at best, which could have been improved in so many ways – better graphics, more refined combat, decent camera etc.
    • 64 Metascore

    The game is visually pleasing to the eye but fails to produce any major "wows" overall.
    • 49 Metascore

    I wouldn't class this as a game that belongs within the Sonic franchise but as a unique game featuring Shadow and all his friends including Sonic.

    Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom offers up a solid 15 hours of play, with potentially several more hours if you're one for exploration. While the game's combat and A.I. controlled Majin feature-set is the more unique aspect of the game, it's the exploration and puzzle solving that takes precedence, and if you prefer combat over puzzles/exploration then Majin may certainly wear thin sooner than anticipated.
