    All the natty Maria dialogue and realistic story threads can't disguise the fact that, at its core, Made Man is bland like breadsticks. [Dec 2006, p.81]

    Flaccid gunplay, horrible stop/start pacing and dull bosses mean that Shadow isn't ready for the limelight just yet. [Apr 2006, p.84]

    Wildly derivative and senselessly exploitative, SOE2 neither challenges nor entertains. Thug gaming at the very lowest level. [May 2006, p.81]

    Too many games that involve no skill. [Aug 2007, p.98]

    Laziness of the worst kind, this is a charmless shadow of the next-gen version. There are plenty of better shooters available on PS2. [May 2006, p.82]

    Meant for younger gamers, Flushed Away lacks the lemon-fresh tinge that would separate it from all the other cartoon platformers clogging the system. [Christmas 2006, p.96]

    Disposable urban nonsense. The barbaric combat may entertain for a while, but it's not long until tedium sets in. [May 2006, p.85]

    Those in search of family-friendly thrills should pick up the last "Sly" game instead. [Mar 2006, p.85]

    Dull, short, unambitious and misguided, Road to Respect has all the appeal of Big Pussy's body - after it got riddled with bullets. [Jan 2007, p.77]

    Why would you play this when you have the Olympics of shooters on hand in "Call of Duty"? [May 2008, p.103]

    Certainly won't make your PSP break a sweat, but the multiplayer options are good and we'd rather play this than yet another dull retro collection. [Christmas 2006, p.97]

    Commentary will soon get on your tits. [Feb 2006, p.94]

    A very ordinary racing game with a wrong-headed storyline tacked on. Stick with Micro Machines for your diddy-driving kicks. [Oct 2006, p.105]

    A big, stodgy pudding of a beat-'em-up that lacks any punch or bite. [Mar 2008, p.82]

    An uninspiring collection that's poorly presented and underwhelming to play. You have been warned. [June 2008, p.66]

    If you're going to buy a PSP poker game, get the other one ("World Poker Tour"). [May 2006, p.95]

    A collection of mini-games and a couple of dreadful driving sections. Just watch the show and play "Need For Speed Carbon." [May 2007, p.82]

    The How-To Guide Guide on how to murder a solid license, the only thing this game succeeds in is being even worse than its predecessor. [Aug 2007, p.88]

    An offence to Harley lovers and gamers alike, Race to the Rally crams all the worst crimes in gaming into one package. [May 2007, p.83]

    We applaud the attempt to create a substantial RPG for kids, but sadly the flat characters and limited battle options make this rather patronising. [Sept 2007, p.95]

    This is every bit as stinking as you would expect. Imagine playing a game designed by someone who really, really hates you. [Jan 2007, p.93]

    Rubbish. Oh,and you can't play at all without a memory card; when you die your options are "reload" or "retun to death screen." What? WHAT? [Apr 2006, p.113]

    We hate it because the graphics are Etch-A-Sketch standard and the load times are outrageous. [Sept 2006, p.95]
