    • 49 Critic Score
    Awkward to play, hard to look at, difficult to control and socially neutered. We're not sold on Splinter Cell.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    Tolerably mundane. [Oct 2013, p.81]
    • 55 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    It gets the gold medal for pig-headedness, at least. [Dec 2013, p.80]
    • 58 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    If you must play Battle of the Bands then rent it - you'll be finished with it after a day. [July 2008, p.79]
    • 46 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    Sorry, Sega, but your luck with movie licenses just isn't getting any better. [Sept 2008, p.101]
    • 39 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    It all falls down because it's just not fun to play in any way, shape or form. [Oct 2008, p.99]
    • 47 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    Even as rabid Pokemon fans we're really struggling to see the point of My Pokemon Ranch. [Aug 2008, p.103]
    • 56 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    A poker game where you start off 600 Points down and can't win it back. Fail. [Nov 2009, p.104]
    • 49 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    Mind-numbingly boring. This is one call you should definitely send to answer phone.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    Poor show. [Sept 2010, p.89]
    • 45 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    So despite all the options - Championship mode, Capture The Flag, four player split screen and a Hot Pursuit mode - the wild handling is a little too much to cope with.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    Its challenge is too variable. [Feb 2012, p.105]
    • 60 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    A good idea, wasted. [Jan 2014, p.75]
    • 57 Metascore
    • 47 Critic Score
    This is the same licensed platform stuff people have been playing for years. [Jan 2007, p.77]
    • 52 Metascore
    • 47 Critic Score
    A mindless slog that not even devoted fans will play through. [Oct 2008, p.98]
    • 57 Metascore
    • 47 Critic Score
    There really is no excuse for such a poor Wii version. Sort it out Activision. [Jan 2008, p.87]
    • 61 Metascore
    • 46 Critic Score
    Frustratingly, it plays more like an interactive story book than a videogame. [Jan 2008, p.78]
    • 56 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    This offers some very poor football action with frustrating, nonsensical gameplay and awful visuals. [May 2008, p.94]
    • 50 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    Perhaps the lowest example of not knowing when to give up. [Apr 2010, p.89]
    • tbd Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    Lumpy handling. [June 2010, p.91]
    • tbd Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    Feels extremely basic and devoid of depth. [July 2010, p.95]
    • 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]
    • 50 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    We applaud Battle For Earth's unique approach to simplistic fighting, but its lack of content and depth won't impress anyone but the most junior gamers.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    A game rendered so easy by the needs of its target market, that it's dead on arrival. Consider this a Surf eulogy. [Sept 2013, p.89]
    • 47 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    The skateboard controller looks the part but doesn't work and seems to hate the game it was designed for. It may yet fall to another game to get the best out of it.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 43 Critic Score
    Heartbreakingly awful. [Feb 2009, p.84]
    • 31 Metascore
    • 43 Critic Score
    It just isn't that fun to play. [Jan 2010, p.87]
    • 56 Metascore
    • 43 Critic Score
    The whole thing gets repetitive very quickly. [May 2010, p.91]
    • tbd Metascore
    • 43 Critic Score
    It only works 30% of the time. [July 2010, p.95]
    • 60 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    While we can appreciate what Dust Strikers is trying to do, it just doesn't work. [Nov 2007, p.85]
