    A bad conversion of an almost year-old Xbox game. Vengeance is playable but it's a massively disappointing Wii debut for the Far Cry series, and the worst FPS on the console so far. [Mar 2007, p.84]
    • 35 Metascore
    • 32 Critic Score
    Ugly, unplayable and not even close to being fun. [Nov 2007, p.92]
    • 52 Metascore
    • 32 Critic Score
    It's fantastically dull. [Dec 2008, p.97]
    • 41 Metascore
    • 32 Critic Score
    Stupid design decisions. [Dec 2009, p.94]
    • tbd Metascore
    • 32 Critic Score
    Extremely basic stuff, this is one WiiWare game that'll have kids bored fairly quickly. [Jan 2010, p.87]
    • 43 Metascore
    • 32 Critic Score
    An old PC game ported to the DS to cash in on people waning to bash their heads in. [May 2010, p.85]
    • 49 Metascore
    • 32 Critic Score
    Rank puddle of bilgewater. [Oct 2012, p.95]
    • 42 Metascore
    • 31 Critic Score
    Quite simply a rotten game with woefully little variation in gameplay and turgid mechanics. There's very little fun here an dit's cetainly a long way from 'cowabunga', dude. [May 2007, p.78]
    • 47 Metascore
    • 31 Critic Score
    Had so much potential, but this is ultimately a waste of Points. There are countless better games out there.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 31 Critic Score
    Ten rubbish blink-and-you'll miss them microgames. A waste of money. [Nov 2009, p.104]
    • 42 Metascore
    • 31 Critic Score
    Just feels like an unfinished mess that's been rushed to the shops in time for the release of the movie it's based on. [Aug 2011, p.99]
    • 37 Metascore
    • 31 Critic Score
    While you can teach an old dog new tricks, it's still a dog. [Nov 2011, p.95]
    • 37 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A botched excuse for a stealth game whose only achievement is bringing a decent series' name into disrepute. This game should have been so much better. [Jan 2007, p.72]
    • 49 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Visually, it's a horrid mess of jagged polygons and smeared textures. [Apr 2008, p.76]
    • 52 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Liked bowling in "Wii Sports"? Well, if you want some decent bowling action on Wii you'll just have to stick with it because Brunswick has no style, character or spirit. Dreadful. [Dec 2007, p.88]
    • 46 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Avoid. [Apr 2010, p.95]
    • tbd Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A blatant cash-in on Rabbids Go Home. [Jan 2010, p.87]
    • 62 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    It's 30 pounds. THIRTY! The equivalent package is under 2 quid on a phone. Need we say more? [Dec 2012, p.102]
    • 35 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Simply garbage. [May 2013, p.87]
    • 18 Metascore
    • 29 Critic Score
    A mindless, repetitive shell of a game, it's an insult to World War 2's tactical combat. [Jan 2011, p.92]
    • 29 Metascore
    • 29 Critic Score
    Shoddily made, uglier than Ugly McUglyson and an incredibly frustrating game. [June 2011, p.102]
    • 56 Metascore
    • 28 Critic Score
    It had potential but at the end of the day it just doesn't work. This really needs Wii MotionPlus.

    Gordon. We like you. But please don't attach your likeness to a game ever again. [Feb 2010, p.89]
    • 36 Metascore
    • 28 Critic Score
    Half-baked rubbish. [Dec 2011, p.98]
    • 56 Metascore
    • 28 Critic Score
    A prime example of how to disrespect the fans of something as big as Transformers: a £50 game that can be finished on a single GamePad charge. Yuck.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 27 Critic Score
    Quotation forthcoming. [Sept 2010]
    • 21 Metascore
    • 26 Critic Score
    The controls are hideous. [July 2010, p.95]
    • 32 Metascore
    • 26 Critic Score
    Awful.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 23 Critic Score
    The dragon is impossible to control. [Jan 2010, p.87]
    • 48 Metascore
    • 22 Critic Score
    It's dull, it's repetitive and it's as much fun as being cuddled by a cactus. [Nov 2007, p.87]
