    A weak hide-and-seek game that's as laborious as it is devoid of fun. [Feb 2009, p.49]

    It's 30 pounds. THIRTY! The equivalent package is under 2 quid on a phone. Need we say more? [Dec 2012, p.102]

    For a kids' game, Travel In Time is horrible at guiding the player. It's all over the place.

    Frustratingly, it plays more like an interactive story book than a videogame. [Jan 2008, p.78]

    If you're after some boxing action on the Wii, it might be best to stick with Wii Sports for now and wait for Punch-Out!! This simply won't satisfy.

    While we can appreciate what Dust Strikers is trying to do, it just doesn't work. [Nov 2007, p.85]

    Open Season is playable but you won't enjoy playing it. Its dull collecting scenarios and repetitive sound bites will drain your soul. Another bad movie tie-in. [Dec 2006, p.94]

    If you can believe it, this is possibly even worse than the diabolical "Spider-Man 3." [Christmas 2007, p.83]

    If you must play Battle of the Bands then rent it - you'll be finished with it after a day. [July 2008, p.79]

    It is, and always has been, a horribly vanilla platformer with very little soul to it. [Christmas 2008, p.103]

    It had potential but at the end of the day it just doesn't work. This really needs Wii MotionPlus.

    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.

    A poker game where you start off 600 Points down and can't win it back. Fail. [Nov 2009, p.104]

    An unnecessary update to last year's rubbish Olympics cash-in. [Oct 2009, p.84]

    There are glimmers of promise in the 3DS version, but the execution is so bad and the graphics engine so lacklustre, that you'll find it hard to squeeze more than a few drops of genuine pleasure out of this cold, grey stone. [Sept 2012, p.107]

    • 55 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    The original's good ideas are distorted in an apparent attempt to justify a price tag. [Nov 2012, p.98]

    It gets the gold medal for pig-headedness, at least. [Dec 2013, p.80]
