    Great fun - if you find the idea of rolling ten-foot boulders up a hill fun. [Aug 2010, p.99]

    It shows glimmers of fun, but a short story mode and lack of replay factor stifle it. [Sept 2011, p.98]

    A really tough game to pick up and play. [Dec 2008, p.98]

    The only thing it has going for it is the controls. [Sept 2011, p.92]

    A very unpleasant experience. [June 2013, p.84]

    It takes a genuinely profound kind of idiocy to turn such a romping good series into something so leaden. [Feb 2014, p.91]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 53 Metascore
    • 34 Critic Score
    Awful, just awful. It's a dirty, cheap, slapped-together cash-in title that's not woth the round plastic disc it comes on. [Apr 2008, p.92]

    • 33 Metascore
    • 34 Critic Score
    An extremely primitive quad bike racer with some predictable tracks and dismal presentation. [Nov 2009, p.99]

    • 34 Critic Score
    It's about as much fun as getting chatted up by a serial killer in a dark alleyway. [Mar 2010, p.93]

    Horrible stuff. [Apr 2013, p.85]

    Tyranna-bore-us Rex. Triceraplops.Velocicraptor. You get the picture.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 32 Critic Score
    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]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 35 Metascore
    • 32 Critic Score
    Ugly, unplayable and not even close to being fun. [Nov 2007, p.92]

    It's fantastically dull. [Dec 2008, p.97]

    Stupid design decisions. [Dec 2009, p.94]

    • 32 Critic Score
    Extremely basic stuff, this is one WiiWare game that'll have kids bored fairly quickly. [Jan 2010, p.87]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 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]

    Rank puddle of bilgewater. [Oct 2012, p.95]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 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]
    • Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    • 47 Metascore
    • 31 Critic Score
    Had so much potential, but this is ultimately a waste of Points. There are countless better games out there.

    Ten rubbish blink-and-you'll miss them microgames. A waste of money. [Nov 2009, p.104]

    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]

    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]

    Visually, it's a horrid mess of jagged polygons and smeared textures. [Apr 2008, p.76]

    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]

    Avoid. [Apr 2010, p.95]

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

    Simply garbage. [May 2013, p.87]
