    Although Cars is no real match for the all-conquering "Ridge Racer," its unexpectedly speedy action makes it well worth a test drive nonetheless. [Oct 2006, p.98]

    Near identical gameplay to its 05 counterpart and a more intricate management aspect - if that floats your boat then hop on board. [Nov 2005, p.122]

    Their simplicity is charming and their gameplay addictive. Thank heavens some things don't change. [Oct 2006, p.97]

    • 70 Critic Score
    An enjoyable beat-'em-up despite the ADHD storyline. The smooth, ninja-tastic fighting is fun and there's plenty of stuff to do. [June 2007, p.98]

    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Not much new for Ape Escape veterans, but if you want to get a youngster a game that's actually good, this is the monkey business. [May 2006, p.92]

    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There's no need to own both versions unless you're rich or stupid, but this is commendable nonetheless. [Christmas 2006, p.102]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's a great shooter, especially if you want to use your brains as much as your ammo, but it doesn't quite add enough as a sequel. [Dec 2005, p.122]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Underneath the mixed bag of superfluous trimmings lies a game that's still highly playable despite feeling very familiar. [Dec 2005, p.121]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 47 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Flawed, scruffy and inconsistent, but the small moments of magic [do] some way make up for the lack of overall polish. [July 2008, p.64]

    • 70 Metascore

    Young or old, Jungle Party will make you laugh and keep you coming back for more - especially in multiplayer. [Nov 2006, p.103]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fun game for short sessions, suited to the system and with some clever ideas, but it's not the proper Metal Gear Solid title we were expecting. [Mar 2007, p.107]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 60 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A solid, respectable golf game that should keep pros and amateurs happily stroking in public for hours. [Jan 2007, p.93]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Soul Nomad is no more "tactical" than a game of mouse trap. [June 2008, p.69]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A commendably original RPG which throws up plenty of surprises and improves substantially on previous outing, "Lucifer's Call." [June 2006, p.93]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A multitude of monstery mini-games that makes for a festival of family fun. [Jan 2008, p.96]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    So simple that it's actually a bit limited, despite a substantial multiplayer offer. [Christmas 2007, p.123]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's a shame you have to wade through so much rubbish to reach the good stuff, but the second half of Parallel Lines is a blast. [Mar 2006, p.78]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    FIFA has grown up a bit and learnt that it has to do the dirty work first before it can get fancy. Competent, entertaining but far from faultless. [Nov 2005, p.132]

    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's good to see someone taking bike racing seriously, but make sure you can do without stabilisers - this is no easy ride. [May 2007, p.84]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    With highly customisable mechs, smooth controls, and lots of really big explosions, this is great mech action on the move. [May 2006, p.93]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A non-offensive god-sim packed full of laughs and originality. Buy it. [July 2008, p.87]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 60 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Does a pretty good job of capturing the spirit of the film and provies some mindless laughs. Kids will love it too - trust us, we checked. [Jan 2006, p.109]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 81 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Decent comic book effort which certainly captures the Marvel spirit. Unlikely to become as revered as the icons that star in it, though. [Christmas 2006, p.97]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 80 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Predictably high production values, but those enticed by previous Snake adventures will find a hollow, confusing game. [June 2006, p.82]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Take away the goodwill generated by the movies and the flaws in Tactics begin to show. There's fun here, but not a lot of it. [Dec 2005, p.100]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A tidy boxing game in itself, but one that lacks the punch of previous Rocky games or any real element of sophistication. [Feb 2007, p.74]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A decent, short-term hack'n'blast that's best with two players who like old-school games, but a far cry from today's big action titles. [Apr 2007, p.77]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 56 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Simple, repetitive gaming, that offers immediate fun, but little real substance. [June 2008, p.91]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A faithful recreation of the world of Narnia, which frustrates and delights in not quite equal measure, but avoids being whiffy. [Apr 2006, p.98]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It may have a pouch full of original ideas, but Freedom makes too many basic errors to be a serious PSP predator. [May 2006, p.87]
