    It's difficult not to find this fighter charming - even if the hero is a squaky-voiced brat. [Nov 2007, p.92]

    Brilliantly chaotic, relentlessly quick and rammed with gaming modes to keep you at it. Fasten your seat belts. [July 2006, p.82]

    Wild West shooter that's like a cool breeze in Death Valley. Yeehaw! [Jan 2007, p.106]

    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An honest stab at genuine change which, unfortunately, dilutes what Guilty Gear does best but should still appeal to die-hards at this bargain price. [Feb 2006, p.96]

    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The control system is half-cocked making it seem half the experience of the PS2 game. [Christmas 2006, p.86]

    Gorgeous PS2 version of the comic-book hero. Play this now. [Jan 2007, p.106]

    Great shooting, epic-set pieces, regrettable sewer level. This is a satirical, heartfelt love letter to the kind of police force we'd like to join. [May 2006, p.74]

    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    So it's not an epic free-roaming adventure, but After Burner is finely formed arcade shooting: a perfectly proportioned aerial shooter. [Apr 2007, p.94]

    • 60 Critic Score
    The total package feels soulless and, as a result, rather unappealing. [Dec 2006, p.95]

    More than a story game, Xenosaga II just about prevails in spite of itself as a title worth witnessing...for the patient. [Dec 2005, p.118]

    If we needed to shed some lard, this is how we'd do it. If we needed birthday presents for the kids, we'd buy them "SingStar." [Mar 2007, p.92]

    But no matter how many features they throw at it, there's little doubt that KOF is ready for the knacker's yard. [Mar 2006, p.106]

    It's the ultimate package for DBZ fans. For everyone else it's one of the most technical and rewarding fighters out there. [Christmas 2007, p.90]

    Disappointing effort; scrapes the barrel more than it feels the Force. [Christmas 2007, p.123]

    • 70 Critic Score
    Brilliant in short bursts and great looking to boot; only question marks about its longevity prevent Gottlieb earning a higher score. [May 2006, p.93]

    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A game to throw in your PS2 when you're looking for a quick fix of fun violence, even if it's a little rough around the edges. [Feb 2007, p.66]

    Soul Nomad is no more "tactical" than a game of mouse trap. [June 2008, p.69]

    There's no need to own both versions unless you're rich or stupid, but this is commendable nonetheless. [Christmas 2006, p.102]

    Providing you have a taste for the Top 20, or are a pre-adolescent girl, Pop Hits delivers another welcome helping of tacky karaoke goodness. [Apr 2007, p.86]

    Whether you want to play in-depth for hours or just drop in, keep it PSP for the finest NBA experience. [Mar 2008, p.106]

    An Armored Core nut's wet dream, if such a deranged breed exists. Otherwise a dull mech-'em-up that lacks thrills and originality. [Aug 2006, p.101]

    • 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]

    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
    • 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]

    Even if you never play half the games on offer (and you won't), the inclusion of genuine classics means this lives up to its billing. [July 2006, p.89]

    Stacked with licenses and serving up a great game of footy, this is PSP's best football offering yet. Over to you, Konami. [July 2006, p.85]

    A joy to play. There's tons to do, and immaculate attention to detail really brings this charming and gritty game to life. [Sept 2007, p.102]

    Still the best basketball sim on PS2 and great value, but not much different to last year's title. [Dec 2007, p.89]
    • 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]
