    An uninspired but likeable-in-places arcade shooter whose few good ideas are hamstrung by shoody design and weak AI. [Aug 2006, p.100]
    • 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
    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An extremely average crime sim bolted onto a much-loved license, this just proves that you can't buy class. Not horrific, just freakin' dull. [Apr 2006, p.88]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 49 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A once-fine example of dogfighting laid low by its transition to PSP, Heatseeker isn't bad, but neither is it anywhere near brilliant. [July 2007, p.93]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 60 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Great to look at and a thrill to explore, but its plodding, turn-based fights are enough to put off all but the most patient of RPGers. [Nov 2006, p.100]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Its loose take on the Spidey mythology might annoy some, but this is a decent enough multiplayer-friendly beat-'em-up. [Dec 2007, p.91]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A solid attempt to bring the gritty realism of war to handheld, but shooter-nuts are better off sticking with "Medal of Honor Heroes." [Jan 2007, p.88]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Rejecting flashy production in favour of appropriate use of the hardware's tech, Carol's Sudoku is a strong PSP showing for the craze. [Sept 2006, p.89]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Some nice ideas that could have made this effort stand out from the crowd were it not so chock-full of cliche. [Feb 2006, p.96]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 54 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Not even a crime-fighting dog can hide the fact that this is generic shooting with a wonky lock-on system. Distinctly average. [Apr 2006, p.97]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 53 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Nothing that raises the pulse or even peaks the interest. [Mar 2008, p.78]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 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]

    • 60 Critic Score
    Stories that are interesting enough but give new meaning to the phrase 'slow-paced.' [Jan 2008, p.100]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A solid addition to the series. [Aug 2007, p.84]

    Apparently, monks chant the same phrase hundreds of times to reach a meditative state. This is like that, but with puniching. [Feb 2006, p.102]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Hopelessly repetitive and only offers the same amount of cheap thrills as every other Dynasty Warriors type game. [July 2008, p.90]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    This makes illegal street racing a grim, unenjoyable affair. Your money's better spent on Ridge, TOCA or Burnout...to name a few. [Christmas 2005, p.106]
    • 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
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The only good thing to say about the scrapping is the quality of the gore. [May 2008, p.102]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Starts off well and features some decent strategizing, but is ultimately stifled by a poor script and some uninspired character design. [May 2006, p.95]
    • 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]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Behind the new name and smattering of fresh features rests a creaky old game that can't compete against its obviously-better-in-every-department rival. [Apr 2006, p.109]
    • 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
    • 66 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Unfortunately, getting Frogger through his grid-based and danger-laced environment is about as snappy as email chess. [Mar 2006, p.99]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 60 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Over complicated and visually lacklustre - this is a disappointing outing for Rainbow Six. Stick with "Medal of Honor Heroes." [Jan 2007, p.76]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The fantasy sequences and overall visual style are truly a feast for the eyes, but this is little more than just a standard slash 'n' bash game in pretty clothing. [Christmas 2005, p.104]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A shoddy selection of oldies that could have been so much better. It's only rescued by "Space Harrier" and the still-superb "Columns." [Mar 2006, p.86]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A variety of playable characters, extra moves, and a Risk-style campaign map do little to hide the fact that there's little more on offer here than an endless swarm of identi-soldiers to hammer. [Mar 2006, p.95]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 66 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A straightforward puzzler with a neat robo-twist, but it's better suited to life on the small screen. [Christmas 2006, p.103]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 78 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A nice enough - but very brief - trip down memory lane, which would be a better value stripped down and bundled as an extra with a more modern game, or on PSP. [Dec 2005, p.124]
