    Below average and somewhat unpolished when compared to other games in the genre.

    I’ve enjoyed playing BIONICLE Heroes for the sheer fact that it’s uncomplicated, easy to get into and a lot of fun. However on a negative I can’t help but feel the net could have been widened to include levels of difficulty for more seasoned players and perhaps more levels and objectives other than the same repeated sequences throughout the game.

    Rise of the Argonauts is not a terrible game, and in some respects is quite enjoyable, especially in regards to its story. However, the low production values in the gameplay and graphics department, does mean that you’ll possibly find enjoyment is severely hindered and your patience somewhat tested.

    Discs of Tron on Xbox 360 is a good representation of how sloppy some of the Xbox Live Arcade games are at the moment.
    • 66 Metascore

    Universe at War at times feels too simplistic and yet overwhelming with confusion at other points in the game as you are trying to keep track of multiple things and constantly having to shift your view of the map.

    The Happy Tree Friends has quite a faithful fan base, but most people will be left disappointed with the level of difficulty and the shortness of the game.

    With fantastic story lines, but without the fully realized team system, Warriors Orochi appeals much more to old fans than it does draw in new ones.

    2K’s take on the NHL franchise has always been poor in comparison to EA’s, and this edition is no exception. If you want to buy a hockey game it has to be NHL 09, the gameplay is untouchable and you’ll be playing it all year.

    I can see that some fans will gain enjoyment, and those gamers tired of the norm, but for my tastes, the appeal of the game was lost pretty early on.

    However the length of the game is increased by the furiously frustrating trial and error game play and super accurate guards on occasion.
    • 49 Metascore

    Even for the hardcore fans I’m sure re-iterations start to grind, and although Gundam 2 is a step out the Chinese and Japanese historical fantasy books, it’s still feeling rather stale.

    Pure Football has got problems, any hardcore football fan should stay well away from this one and stick with what you've got already.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    If you absolutely must play it, then I'd recommend nothing more than a rental.

    Strikeforce has added a few new additions to the series but all in all it just hasn't done enough with it. In reality the game feels like it should have stayed on the PSP.

    Kinect Sports Calorie Challenge is not a serious bit of fitness programming for everyone's favourite Kinect enabled game. It's loose, bare bones and lacking in features. It would have been nice if calories were tracked outside of the mini games and in standard modes as well, and even better if players were allowed to choose which events they'd like to play rather than have them chosen for you by the AI. If you're after a serious fitness game for Kinect, then it's recommended you look elsewhere, if its a bit of fun you're after with the aim of tracking calorie loss, then this is worth checking out.

    King of Fighters XII isn't a bad game per se but and should please die hard fans of the series who will lap up anything SNK throw at them. Yet anyone else is going to perhaps look at the game in disgust and see a title that should have been placed on the XBLA at a low price point and been done with it.

    Perhaps the younger gamers who are fans of the show will find something worthwhile here but the shallow gameplay will deter most.
    • 61 Metascore

    It is not challenging enough to be a fully fledged RPG or have enough bad mutha action in it to be classed as a 3rd person action shooter romp.
    • 26 Metascore

    Deca Sports Freedom is merely an O.K effort and one that fails to ignite any real passion.
    • 62 Metascore

    There isn’t much left to say about Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa. It’s a kids-only game in my book, but a decent kid-friendly game that shouldn’t frustrate the younger player.
    • 45 Metascore

    Rise of the Silver Surfer offers very little enjoyment, if there is any fun to be drained from this fantastically mediocre game then perhaps the hardcore fans of the Marvel comic books, series or movies may be able to harness their special powers to find some form of fun out of this not so fantastic game.

    Domino Master isn’t going to overpower a gamer with variations of the game and what you get is pretty straight forward.
    • 57 Metascore

    If you feel you've conquered the multiplayer battlefields and adhered to the call of duty for the umpteenth time, then perhaps Breach may be of interest to you, in short, controlled bursts.

    Had there been more variety of games then it would be a cool game to recommend a purchase. The only reason this game is going to be popular is the interactive element with Fable II as gamers seek a head start when they start playing in October.

    The new visual flair and improved combat system can only hide the dreadfully tedious grind for so long. It is simple and repetitive and doesn't look or sound as nice as the best the Xbox 360 has to offer...
    • 52 Metascore

    Everything from the dull campaigns, to the boring “open ended” environments, which really weren’t, No-name Bots I took no pleasure in killing, and timed missions that made me want to scream in frustration.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Very basic, very average and a little fun in small doses.
