    While we definitely don't remember school being this much fun, this is a brilliant return to a more innocent time. One of the year's best games. [Dec 2006, p.102]

    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]

    This epic adventure is short on the nuts-and-bolts of adventuring, but its charm, and the quality of its production still merit a high score. [Nov 2006, p.88]

    Spellbinding stuff with lashings of imagination: well worth top marks! [Feb 2008, p.76]

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

    Calibur makes every other fighting game feel outmoded. Only our reservations over the new strategy element prevent a perfect score. [Dec 2005, p.114]

    • 80 Critic Score
    A genius piece of eccentric gaming that's a hair's breath from being indespensible. Utterly entertaining from start to finish. [Feb 2006, p.100]

    This makes you realise how much Jak has been holding Daxter back all these years. It also shows just how good PSP gaming can get. [May 2006, p.84]

    Sure, you've seen much of it before, but it's never looked so searchingly brilliant, or felt so surging. [Mar 2008, p.102]

    • 84 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Solid, but nowhere near spectacular sim that will only satisfy B-ball fans who can appreciate its subtleties. The rest of us can only look on, slightly bemused. [Apr 2006, p.100]
