    • 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]

    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    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]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A likeable adventure hidden beneath a catalogue of design errors. Still less painful than sitting through the movie. [Christmas 2006, p.72]

    • 59 Metascore

    Less fiery dragon, more a damp squid. [Jan 2007, p.90]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 49 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Inoffensive and pretty licensed effort that's too repetitive to be anything more than a brief and casual diversion. [Christmas 2006, p.103]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A stylish shooter that will be compared to "Lumines" - but unfortunately can't hold a candle to it in the puzzle stakes. [Christmas 2006, p.101]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The most atmospheric and intense WW2 shooter we've played, hampered only by linear warzones and poor mini-games. [Christmas 2006, p.95]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A curious balance - chunky visuals betray subtle animation, while deep but fiddy controls yield major addiction. [Christmas 2006, p.74]
    • 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]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    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]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 42 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Dull, short, unambitious and misguided, Road to Respect has all the appeal of Big Pussy's body - after it got riddled with bullets. [Jan 2007, p.77]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best retro compendium around. [Christmas 2006, p.98]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 92 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Just as entertaining as the first offering, but newbies should invest in the original for a more varied selection of sounds. [Christmas 2006, p.70]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    There are new modes and a better camera, but the developer seems to have accidentally flicked the switch to Extreme Difficulty. [Jan 2007, p.81]
    • 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]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Original, ultra-playable and extremely cool - there's simply no alternative if you're seeking a top-notch PSP puzzler. [Christmas 2006, p.98]

    FFXII is the apex of adventuring; gaming doesn't get any better than this. [Jan 2007, p.68]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 77 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A perfectly targeted shooter that sines on handheld due to great controls and balanced gameplay. One of the best blasts on PSP. [Dec 2006, p.96]

    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    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]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A confident end to the PS2 ATV series. [Sept 2007, p.88]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A minor irritation. [June 2007, p.98]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 74 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It's a blast from start to finish, with arguably the prettiest cut-scenes ever to grace PS2. [Dec 2006, p.86]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The classy presentation and slick action capture the spirit of the PS2 game, but this is nothing more than a competent racer. [Christmas 2006, p.100]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Not only is this the greatest game on PSP, it also leaves a large percentage of the PS2 back catalogue looking ordinary. But it right now. [Dec 2006, p.76]

    Educational and enjoyable, and will last you for months. It's just a shame that the tests are so samey. [Jan 2007, p.90]
    • 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
    • 55 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An adequate street racer that does everything you'd expect, but nowhere near well enough to challenge the big boys of the chav's race scene. [Christmas 2006, p.82]
    • 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
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A slick game that demonstrates how great stealth can be when done right. It's just too damn murky to be a classic, though. [Dec 2006, p.88]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 50 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A bad idea executed only slightly better. [Oct 2006, p.97]
