    Brilliantly average; surprisingly enjoyable flying, wrapped in a no-expense-at-all package... Fun for at least 20 minutes. [Apr 2006, p.113]

    • 30 Critic Score
    Very average RPG mechanisms, diabolical missions, non-existent storyline, monstrously difficult battles... it's a bleak outcome. [Sept 2007, p.107]

    Curious George has none of the double-layered humour of other animated films. Likewise, the game only works if you're under six. [Oct 2006, p.88]

    • 53 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Nothing that raises the pulse or even peaks the interest. [Mar 2008, p.78]

    • 30 Critic Score
    Dull, repetitive, [un]inspired - had it been anything like its PS3 cousin, Battlelines could have been a great game. As it's not, it's not. [May 2007, p.91]

    • 53 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    We like SpongeBob, but teaming him up with his Nickelodeon pals has resulted in a generic platformer with precious little originality or energy. [May 2006, p.94]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 53 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Certainly nothing to go ape for. The adventure slips on a banana peel, but the classic mode and mini-gmes redeem the package. [July 2006, p.76]

    You'll be asleep before you've clocked mission four. [May 2006, p.89]

    If we'd had this wen we were eight, we'd have peed our pants. Literally. [Nov 2006, p.137]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 53 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    With its horrible looks, non-existent gameplay and shallow controls, every possible effort should be made to avoid this. [Dec 2005, p.111]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 53 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    We like new gaming concepts, and B-Boy is both unusual and innovative - but it's not deep enough to sustain your interest. [Oct 2006, p.89]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A loveless afterthought that's best avoided. [Mar 2008, p.107]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 52 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Jaws is genuinely witty, outrageously violent and top fun but - wait for it - slightly lacking in depth. [Aug 2006, p.90]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 52 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A strong idea let down by poor controls and lack of originality. The mini-games go some way to repairing the damage, though. [Sept 2006, p.92]

    • 52 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    More than a little mindless, the Burning Earth is definitely one for fans only. Everyone else should leave it well alone. [Christmas 2007, p.94]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 52 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Predictable and repetitive adventuring that's rescued by an engaging lead character and excellent mini-games. [Sept 2006, p.84]

    • 52 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The weakest title yet from the Naruto series. It feels unsurprisingly familiar, and lacks any real punch. [Apr 2008, p.82]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 52 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    All too familiar platforming action spoiled further by oversimplified, unpredictable controls and utterly dreary objectives. [Sept 2006, p.95]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 52 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Nice to look at and entertaining for a while, but is ultimately vacuous and short-lived. [Christmas 2007, p.92]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 52 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Uninspired action, laughable cinematics and repetitive action make this the summer blockbuster tie-in to avoid. [July 2006, p.88]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 52 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Decent looking racer which requires a rare shot of tactical thinking, but one that lacks the flat-out driving thrills of its superior PSP rivals. [Dec 2006, p.92]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 52 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's simple and often satisfying, but 50's world just isn't exciting enough to sustain a whole game's worth of action-RPG-style combat. [Nov 2006, p.94]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 52 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A busy and rather decent shooter targeted towards young 'uns, but there's very little on offer here for veteran gamers. [Christmas 2006, p.85]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 51 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Repetitive and dull retread of a once okay game. [May 2006, p.89]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 51 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Given that there are flash games that do pool just as well, the loading times are unforgivable - much like the rest of this horror show. [Christmas 2006, p.103]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A lightweight grog and cutlass battler that only just scrapes average thanks to Depp's turn as Sparrow. "Prince of Persia" does the swashbuckling action so much better. [Sept 2006, p.94]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 51 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A playable, yet unexceptional, sports title. There are better b-ball games out there. [Aug 2006, p.97]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 51 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A repetitive third-person action game. Dull combat and duller levels mean you should steer clear of this. [Christmas 2006, p.87]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 51 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Star Trek fans should hate it, and so should people who like games. [Jan 2007, p.87]
    • 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]
