    Short-lived and has little new to offer, but the online options and improved Crosstalk bring it back from the brink. [July 2007, p.95]

    No threat to "GTA," but it's not meant to be. Instead it's an absorbing role-playing adventure with plenty to keep you busy. [Sept 2006, p.74]

    Ripe with early frustration, but put in a bit of hard work and Harvest Moon does deliver a bumper crop of fun. [Feb 2006, p.90]

    Combat was always the star of Ratchet games, but with barely a sniff of exploration, Gladiator's destruction feels a little one-note. [Apr 2006, p.94]

    An enjoyable underwater escapade with plenty of nice touches. It's aimed at youngsters, but even the over-nines will get some enjoyment out of it. [Apr 2006, p.109]

    Limited in terms of gameplay, but it's got an undeniable appeal and is often great fun - who wouldn't enjoy kicking ass as Superman and Batman working in unison? [Jan 2007, p.87]

    A few stinkers aside, Jackass is a great bunch of mini-games that capture the essence of the show. [Nov 2007, p.96]

    A superb package with great games and some truly inspired extras - and a real trip down memory lane for some of us. [Mar 2007, p.94]

    It's difficult not to find this fighter charming - even if the hero is a squaky-voiced brat. [Nov 2007, p.92]

    The Great Juju Challenge is never going to be the love of your gaming life, but it's a reasonably attractive bit on the side. [Mar 2006, p.100]

    While not startlingly fresh, Goblet of Fire rattles along enjoyably and demonstrates that PSP is perfectly suited to adventure gaming. [Apr 2006, p.96]

    • 70 Critic Score
    Much better than the last game, and one of the best PS2 RPGs. Let down only by the relentless fighting and steep learning curve. [Feb 2007, p.70]

    Simplified PSP controls do dial down SOCOM's complexity, but impressive options both on and offline make this shine. [May 2006, p.90]

    It's the ultimate package for DBZ fans. For everyone else it's one of the most technical and rewarding fighters out there. [Christmas 2007, p.90]

    With its immediate and vibrant cartoon violence the Power Stone series is well suited to PSP. It can get a little hard on the eyes, mind you. [Christmas 2006, p.87]

    At times sublime, but sadly it's the frantic and frustrating Dark Prince sections that linger longest in the memory. [Jan 2007, p.78]

    Squarely aimed at young gamers, but Cars provides more fun than most kids titles - this is a welcome step in the right direction. [Sept 2006, p.88]

    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Pushes the right buttons but the uninitiated can bash away and still win, so it doesn't match the flair or control of a Virtua. [Feb 2007, p.65]

    Heatseeker's main problem is that all this action, however it's presented, remains much the same throughout the game. The jets and locations change but the tone and intensity do not. And that makes Heatseeker a rather predictable experience. [Mar 2007, p.90]

    It still rules the rink, but if you're already familiar with the series, NHL 08 doesn't do enough to prevent "NHL 07" deja vu. [Nov 2007, p.88]

    An original and entertaining addition to the Star Wars canon with great new characters and some cracking action. [Christmas 2006, p.86]

    Better than you'd expect, Scooby-Doo! Unmasked is an enjoyable slice of cartoon gaming that's boosted by fresh, creative flair. [Christmas 2005, p.118]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 51 Metascore

    A playable, yet unexceptional, sports title. There are better b-ball games out there. [Aug 2006, p.97]

    • 70 Critic Score
    Technically very accomplished and graphically gorgeous, but ultimately unsatisfying, even in online multiplayer. [Feb 2008, p.102]

    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A likeable addition to the PSP's footy ranks that successfully offers something very different to the latest FIFA and PES. [Aug 2006, p.97]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Simple and satisfying combat with a control system that's well mapped to handheld - the only drawback is that it's shallow like a garden pond in August. [June 2006, p.86]

    More than a story game, Xenosaga II just about prevails in spite of itself as a title worth witnessing...for the patient. [Dec 2005, p.118]

    Extreme, yes; pursuit, lots of it; fun, mostly; but essential? Not really. [Jan 2008, p.123]

    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Better than last year's handheld Madden game, but NFL nuts will notice the return of a few niggling flaws. [Oct 2006, p.104]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Blatantly a cash-in, on the back of the knockout stages of the Champions' League. But still a formidable football game. [Apr 2007, p.78]
