    As accessible as a David Lynch film dubbed into Russian and probably about half as much fun, Nine Breaker might keep mech lovers happy, but it'll leave everyone else cold. [Apr 2006, p.98]

    A lazy rehash. [Nov 2005, p.129]

    Same old Dynasty Warriors. New modes can't disguise the almost criminal lack of progress in this hack-'n'-slash relic. [Feb 2006, p.92]

    • 57 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A boring, bland movie tie-in that is hard to recommend even if you're seven and you really loved the movie. [Dec 2006, p.107]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 56 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Bland, repetitive brawling that lacks both panache and depth. A decent cartoon feel isn't nearly enough to redeem this hollow, tedious experience. [Jan 2007, p.92]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 55 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Quirky games like this work only when there's a huge amount of truly inspired imagination behind them. Here, there isn't. [July 2007, p.97]

    Although once a trusty friend, Bomberman is too old and tired to compete on PSP. [June 2008, p.91]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Shouldn't be fun, but it is. Playing for too long might turn you into a blood-thirsty hunting cretin though, so probably best avoided. [Jan 2006, p.106]

    With its veneer of strategy, Empires improves on Samurai Warriors 2, but crowd combat should be more fun than this. [Apr 2007, p.91]

    • 54 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The chases and detective elements bring some originality but the main platform gaming is your typical tosh. [Christmas 2006, p.97]

    • 54 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    An interesting fusion of two very different game types - it's just a shame they've been cobbled together so crudely. [Jan 2006, p.112]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 53 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Very average RPG mechanisms, diabolical missions, non-existent storyline, monstrously difficult battles... it's a bleak outcome. [Sept 2007, p.107]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 53 Metascore
    • 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]

    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]

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

    • 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
    • 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
    • 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
    • 51 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Repetitive and dull retread of a once okay game. [May 2006, p.89]

    • 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
    • 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]

    Star Trek fans should hate it, and so should people who like games. [Jan 2007, p.87]

    • 30 Critic Score
    Oh dear. We've seen some drab ill-judged resurrections of 'retro classics' in our time, but this takes the pixelated biscuit. [Dec 2006, p.94]

    This awful game liberally spits in the face of every Family Guy enthusiast, even with its budget price tag. [Christmas 2006, p.100]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 50 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Inoffensive and surprisingly nonrepetitive, this does exactly as the title suggests, but only an ardent fan will get any lasting enjoyment. [Jan 2006, p.111]

    Trying to shut and eight-year old up for ten minutes? Tell him Santa doesn't exist instead. He'll still hate you, but there'll be less long-term psychological damage. [Jan 2006, p.110]

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

    • 48 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A basic RPG witih no redeeming qualities, this is a relic frm the past that's inexplicably managed to find its way onto PSP. [Aug 2006, p.89]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 48 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A poor cut-and-shut of other (far better) titles, guaranteed to fall to bits on your first drive. Avoid Winback 2: Project Poseidon as you would a bullet. [July 2006, p.91]

    Pretty, but dull. [Aug 2006, p.99]
