    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]

    Once the glow of nostalgia has faded, the fact that the gameplay is predictable and unfair can't be ignored. Disappointing. [Christmas 2006, p.101]

    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]

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

    Its colorful looks may appeal to younger gamers, but Super DBZ is too limited in every department to attract interest from anyone else. [Aug 2006, p.93]

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

    Its simplicity is its strength wehn you start playing, but quickly becomes a weakness due to lack of spark and variety. [Mar 2007, p.102]

    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]

    • 39 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A very ordinary racing game with a wrong-headed storyline tacked on. Stick with Micro Machines for your diddy-driving kicks. [Oct 2006, p.105]

    One for completist retro-heads only. Too many duds spoil the murky broth but there are some classics and near-forgotten gems tucked away here. [Christmas 2006, p.92]

    Over complicated and visually lacklustre - this is a disappointing outing for Rainbow Six. Stick with "Medal of Honor Heroes." [Jan 2007, p.76]

    A likeable adventure hidden beneath a catalogue of design errors. Still less painful than sitting through the movie. [Christmas 2006, p.72]

    • 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]

    Not a shocking update of the arcade classic, but an unnecessary one. [Christmas 2006, p.103]

    A straightforward puzzler with a neat robo-twist, but it's better suited to life on the small screen. [Christmas 2006, p.103]

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

    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]

    A simply concept that makes for a fiendishly tricky and addictive game. Sadly let down slightly by some clumsy controls. [May 2007, p.89]

    With this subject matter it could've been great, but all the noise and effects in the galaxy can't disguise the lack of invention or class. [Aug 2007, p.82]

    Ugly as sin, with clunky mechanics to boot. Not great value compared to other PS3 shooters. [July 2008, p.87]

    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]

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

    Without the unlockables, this game lasts three hours. You're better off using those three hours to watch the very film instead. [July 2007, p.82]

    While the story is strong the clunky gameplay will irritate. [Dec 2007, p.108]

    An unrelenting ugly parade of death and loss and regret. With bad controls. [Christmas 2007, p.119]

    Designed to satisfy only the very easy-to-please, and therefore bound to disappoint anyone expecting a game of real bite. [May 2007, p.80]

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

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