    A stylish puzzler, whose slightly unwieldly control system and inevitable repetition are the only minor spanners in the works. [Mar 2006, p.89]

    Buy it if you didn't play it the first time, but otherwise prepare to be disappointed. [Feb 2008, p.107]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Even if you never play half the games on offer (and you won't), the inclusion of genuine classics means this lives up to its billing. [July 2006, p.89]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A game to throw in your PS2 when you're looking for a quick fix of fun violence, even if it's a little rough around the edges. [Feb 2007, p.66]

    • 79 Metascore

    Too short despite early promise of an epic, Heavenly Sword is quite a disappointment. [Oct 2007, p.119]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Less complicated than "Untold Legends," but equally stuffed with things to kill...and you can talk to a chicken. Sold! [Jan 2007, p.86]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Fun on a kicking-people-in-the-face level, but below the surface this is as shallow as groping a computer-generated lady. [Dec 2005, p.98]

    • 70 Critic Score
    Still offers the definitive MMO experience on PS2, but online is still the only way to get the most out of this expansion. [Mar 2008, p.84]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Too linear, but one of PS3's most charming and satisfying adventures so far. [Nov 2007, p.118]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The could've been stunning, but after a strong start, the story and missions descend into repetitive, formulaic play. [Nov 2005, p.92]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 56 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    As a straight kart racer, Zero Gravity performs well. There's just not enough depth and content here to propel it higher. [Mar 2008, p.76]

    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Steambot isn't as polished or as deep as "Dragon Quest" or "Final Fantasy", but it's still a charming curiosity laden with fresh ideas. [Oct 2006, p.88]

    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Not the most stylish fighter, but those desperately seeking a bruising helping of Tekken-lite action should look here. [Aug 2007, p.84]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The frustrating thing is that these faults don't seem to be the result of poor design or sloppy development, but stem rather from a lack of ambition to turn what is a steady game into something that could have been spectacular. [Dec 2007, p.106]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 60 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Nightmarish, gut-wrenching, and frustrating, but still a tempting prospect as long as you're not looking for the next "Resident Evil 4." [Aug 2007, p.78]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 61 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Good-looking, good-natured and entertaining but simplistic and shallow too. [Oct 2007, p.123]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A respectable enough take on frozen hockey, with some off-the-wall but fun multiplayer modes thrown in foor good measure, but does anyone actually play these games? [Apr 2006, p.100]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Stomach-churning graphics and bad AI undermine an otherwise solid tactical shooter. Has "For Hardcore Fans" written all over it. [Apr 2007, p.89]

    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    As a fluffy fantasy adventure Gurumin pushes all the right buttons, although it's hardly serious RPG fare. [July 2007, p.98]

    If you're looking for a new football game on PSP, then Street is the friendliest option. [Mar 2006, p.100]

    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Offering a commedably laid-back and tongue-in-cheek driving experience, slick multiplayer racers make v4 well worth a spin. [July 2006, p.84]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The campaign lacks the depth of its console counterparts but while you're involved its one of the most atmospheric shooters on PSP. [May 2007, p.90]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An entertaining if shallow compilation of some genuine classics that's well worth a punt at 20 quid. [Christmas 2006, p.92]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Intuitive controls make Rogue Trooper easy to pick up, but a 'meh' storyline and dull surroundings make it easy to put down, too. [June 2006, p.88]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Look beyond the somewhat crude control system and there's plenty of life in this deep and handsome boxing game. [May 2006, p.94]

    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Tasty comat and fresh tactics system make this a rare beast indeed: a Samurai Warriors game that surprises and excites. [Apr 2006, p.100]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An enjoyable and enchanting adventure with a few flaws but fountains of fun, especially (but not exclusively) for kids. [Mar 2008, p.70]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A solid and substantial attempt at bringing online RPG play to offline gamers, but it lacks any long-term appeal without others. [Christmas 2006, p.78]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 52 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A busy and rather decent shooter targeted towards young 'uns, but there's very little on offer here for veteran gamers. [Christmas 2006, p.85]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A deep, rewarding tennis game that lacks the fireworks of Virtua Tennis and also some of its fun. You will like it...eventually. [June 2007, p.95]
