    RPG elements shoved into some half-cooked attempt at achieving depth of play, Uzumaki Chronicles is a missed opportunity. [July 2007, p.90]

    Dodgy implementation lets down some genuinely nice ideas and shark-like AI in one of PS2's better gambling games. [Nov 2006, p.106]

    In its attempt not to spoil the TV show, Lost on PS3 simply skirts all the good stuff. [Apr 2008, p.103]

    It may be cuter than a kitten kissing a baby, but this offers nothing more than tired, old RPG gameplay in a world that's custom built for younger players. [May 2006, p.87]

    Meant for younger gamers, Flushed Away lacks the lemon-fresh tinge that would separate it from all the other cartoon platformers clogging the system. [Christmas 2006, p.96]

    • 60 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Ugly as sin, with clunky mechanics to boot. Not great value compared to other PS3 shooters. [July 2008, p.87]

    • 50 Critic Score
    Hampered by unsuitable controls and a total lack of design flair, Stand Alone Complex is average through and through. [Apr 2006, p.96]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Shoddy, dull, and filled with recycled WW2 content we tired of years ago. The weakest MOH on PS2: nothing more than a poor man's "Call of Duty." [Apr 2007, p.74]

    What could have been a decent shooter is crippled by big technical problems. [Apr 2008, p.103]

    Hollow in comparison to the mighty, beautifully designed "Mashed" and the superior PS2 version of this game. An opportunity badly missed. [Aug 2006, p.97]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 50 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A poor excuse for an expansion from a poor excuse for a sequel from an utterly knackered series. [May 2008, p.82]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Lovely-looking if unadventurous platform fare that does the bare minimum to keep its pre-school audience quiet. [May 2006, p.95]

    Unfortunately there are moments where it's likely to baffle younger ones, with occasionally unfriendly design, glitches, under-explained nuances and little real meat to the game. [Mar 2006, p.100]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Short-term staccato bursts of messy joy don't make up for the shortage of originality, options or the chance to slaughter or cooperate with others. [Feb 2007, p.74]

    Okay for a spot of light relaxation but there's nothing much here to write home about. [Dec 2007, p.99]

    A bad idea executed only slightly better. [Oct 2006, p.97]

    With wireless play included for every multiplayer title, there's certainly some fun to be had here. Just maybe not enough to warrant buying it. [Christmas 2005, p.106]

    Another attempt to cash in on poker's current online renaissance. But with no cash and terrible graphics it's a bum-deal. [Apr 2006, p.108]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A simply concept that makes for a fiendishly tricky and addictive game. Sadly let down slightly by some clumsy controls. [May 2007, p.89]

    An Armored Core nut's wet dream, if such a deranged breed exists. Otherwise a dull mech-'em-up that lacks thrills and originality. [Aug 2006, p.101]

    Curious George has none of the double-layered humour of other animated films. Likewise, the game only works if you're under six. [Oct 2006, p.88]

    Despite a huge citiy and a great swinging mechanic with which to get through it, Spider-Man 3 is repetitive and disappointing. [June 2007, p.90]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A competent sequel, but we've seen all of Dynasty Warriors' tricks before and the option to fiddle with your steed is unlikely to attract any new converts. [Christmas 2006, p.97]

    • 75 Metascore

    Too easy and without replays, the first Madden outing on PSP is a giant fumble. Hopefully next year's update will be better. [Christmas 2005, p.116]

    Disappointing. Should have been a download - as it is, it simply gets us down. [May 2008, p.107]

    A loveless afterthought that's best avoided. [Mar 2008, p.107]

    • 50 Critic Score
    Brilliantly average; surprisingly enjoyable flying, wrapped in a no-expense-at-all package... Fun for at least 20 minutes. [Apr 2006, p.113]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    An average RPG that could've been so much more if Gust hadn't ignored their solid ideas and focused on the 'sexy' innuendo. [Apr 2008, p.84]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 79 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Flaws such as button layout, poor targeting and matches that go on forever make this disappointingly average. [Nov 2006, p.155]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Fans and gamers deserve better than this. [May 2008, p.76]
