    Filled with neat innovations and bringing a real focus to its story-mode gameplay, The Sims 2 is the best console God sim yet. [Nov 2005, p.88]

    An enjoyable underwater escapade with plenty of nice touches. It's aimed at youngsters, but even the over-nines will get some enjoyment out of it. [Apr 2006, p.109]

    Hardly deep, but an entertaining set of party games for your younger brother or sister that you may just get a kick from too. [Jan 2006, p.109]

    Fine, if slightly soulless. The corporate sheen makes us feel queasy, but there's no denying it's a playable, if simple, tie-in. [Apr 2006, p.113]

    While the racing is good rather than great, see it as just part of the game's charm and CTR makes for a fun family treasure box. [Apr 2006, p.100]

    Huge and beautiful, but hopefully not as doomed as its beasts, Colossus deserves to sell ten times what "Ico" did. [Jan 2006, p.94]

    This is not "Jak 4." It's just a kart racer, albeit a quality one with bags of online potential. [Dec 2005, p.106]

    There's not quite enough freedom in the levels to find that perfect shot, but this is still a rewarding and enjoyably fresh sniper sim. [Nov 2006, p.135]

    Underneath the mixed bag of superfluous trimmings lies a game that's still highly playable despite feeling very familiar. [Dec 2005, p.121]

    Until there's an online PS2 poker game where you play with real money, games like this are an irrelevance in the face of the Internet gambling phenomenon. [Christmas 2005, p.108]

    • 72 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Closely in tune with the spirit of the DBZ universe, which must be brilliant for some gamers, but if that means nothing to you then neither will this game. [Dec 2005, p.124]

    An enjoyable beat-'em-up that does the movie justice. But there's little more than a basic scrolling brawler under all the great ideas. [Nov 2005, p.84]
    • 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]

    Not an exceptional racer but enjoyable all the same, and certainly the least juvenile of the current crop of G-riders. [Nov 2006, p.137]

    Simplified PSP controls do dial down SOCOM's complexity, but impressive options both on and offline make this shine. [May 2006, p.90]

    SSX still rules the snowboard scene, but On Tour fails to live up to its predecessors. [Nov 2005, p.95]

    Much better than the last game, and one of the best PS2 RPGs. Let down only by the relentless fighting and steep learning curve. [Feb 2007, p.70]

    FIFA's class is not in doubt, but for a series already in a clear state of transition, the move to a new platform is a bridge too far. [Christmas 2005, p.117]

    It's fast, it's fun and it looks amazing. [Christmas 2005, p.105]

    A camera capable of making children vomit like lawn sprinklers. [Jan 2006, p.110]

    In a hyphenated word: vomit-inducing. Unpleasant, explotative drivel aimed at girls who would almost certainly have more fun staring at a blank TV set. [Jan 2006, p.110]

    A good idea lies somewhere in the middle of this wreck, tucked away behind the messy design and unenjoyable fighting system. Avoid like a debilitating disease. [Christmas 2005, p.106]

    7/10 for the regular bits and a whole bonus point for the excellent Superstar Challenge. Happy dunking. [Christmas 2005, p.116]

    FIFA has grown up a bit and learnt that it has to do the dirty work first before it can get fancy. Competent, entertaining but far from faultless. [Nov 2005, p.132]

    One of the best movie tie-ins you'll play. [Nov 2006, p.135]

    Unfortunately, getting Frogger through his grid-based and danger-laced environment is about as snappy as email chess. [Mar 2006, p.99]

    Addictive and action-packed, racking up combo kills creates a twist that will keep pulling you back in for just one more go. [Nov 2006, p.142]

    • 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]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Stylish, cinematic reinvention of the point-and-click adventure. [Jan 2007, p.106]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Hardcore, ultra-bloody, action-survival horror. [Jan 2007, p.106]
