    EA's ice hockey annual trades gamepay depth for arcade accessibility and speed. For our money though the PS2 offers a greater challenge. [Nov 2006, p.103]

    A solid serving of tennis-lite, but in the face of "Everybody's Tennis," can only really be recommended to the Sega hardcore. [Apr 2008, p.72]

    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]

    • 70 Critic Score
    A sprawling platform brawler with a few frustrating sections, but there's plenty of fun to be had with your little green pals. [Apr 2007, p.82]

    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]

    A delightful, brilliantly realised platformer, Tians would have scored higher were it not for its reliance on competition. [Nov 2007, p.80]

    Concentrates on totally accommodating casual players, at the expense of entertaining fans. [Jan 2008, p.122]

    Needs to make serious progress if 'Gran' isn't to become an indication of age. [June 2008, p.87]

    An innovative and challenging take on an old formula. [Nov 2006, p.100]

    Serving in the same unit as "Brother in Arms" and "Call of Duty", Strike Force just doesn't make the grade. [Mar 2006, p.92]

    Bursting with superhero energy and verve, and makes up for what it lacks in inspiration with water-tight execution. [Feb 2007, p.58]

    Educational and enjoyable, and will last you for months. It's just a shame that the tests are so samey. [Jan 2007, p.90]

    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]

    Lara's PSP debut is a captivating adventure that only falls down on the back of a frustratingly awkward set of controls. [June 2006, p.94]

    Basically good but let down by annoying and compulsory combat sections. [Feb 2008, p.107]

    Will appeal to first timers, butthe changes made will alienate many of Onimusha's staunchest fans. A grower, but vintage 'Musha it ain't. [Apr 2006, p.97]

    Stunning to look at and seriously addictive all the same. [Oct 2007, p.94]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Impressive, immense and pretty but somehow it fails to achieve greatness due to shortage of a variety of high-speed thrills. [Feb 2007, p.72]

    Solid but not stunning. [Oct 2007, p.96]

    A stylish shooter that will be compared to "Lumines" - but unfortunately can't hold a candle to it in the puzzle stakes. [Christmas 2006, p.101]

    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    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]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Straight arcade action with no depth; play for points, though, and you'll relish it. [Feb 2008, p.103]

    • 60 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    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]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A stylish puzzler, whose slightly unwieldly control system and inevitable repetition are the only minor spanners in the works. [Mar 2006, p.89]

    Buy it if you didn't play it the first time, but otherwise prepare to be disappointed. [Feb 2008, p.107]

    • 70 Critic Score
    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]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 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]

    Too short despite early promise of an epic, Heavenly Sword is quite a disappointment. [Oct 2007, p.119]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Less complicated than "Untold Legends," but equally stuffed with things to kill...and you can talk to a chicken. Sold! [Jan 2007, p.86]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Fun on a kicking-people-in-the-face level, but below the surface this is as shallow as groping a computer-generated lady. [Dec 2005, p.98]
