    There's plenty here, but while it is good quality, it's all familiar stuff, and the emphasis on quantity rather than variety gets tiresome. [Apr 2006, p.86]

    Surprisingly well made for a film tie-in. [Oct 2007, p.100]

    Ugly as sin, with clunky mechanics to boot. Not great value compared to other PS3 shooters. [July 2008, p.87]

    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]

    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]

    Heatseeker's main problem is that all this action, however it's presented, remains much the same throughout the game. The jets and locations change but the tone and intensity do not. And that makes Heatseeker a rather predictable experience. [Mar 2007, p.90]

    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]

    Over complicated and visually lacklustre - this is a disappointing outing for Rainbow Six. Stick with "Medal of Honor Heroes." [Jan 2007, p.76]

    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]

    With no back story and totally interchangeable characters, Frantix is as generic as puzzle games get. Challenging to be sure, but the lack of a killer hook cripples long term appeal. [Apr 2006, p.97]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Much more frustrating than the PS2 version, and not quite as varied to play, but more cinematic than we'd have thought possible on the PSP. [Dec 2006, p.81]

    With its combos, special moves and mini-games, FIFA Street 2 is the result of a beat-'em-up transposed on top of a football game. [Mar 2006, p.98]

    Enjoyably frantic, brief and basic. Gauntlet is showing its age but still offers a decent few hours of mindless maiming. [Mar 2006, p.94]

    Blends the stuff of nightmares with stylish sound and graphics. Sadly, the developer should have spent longer on the gameplay. [Dec 2006, p.90]

    Its simplicity is its strength wehn you start playing, but quickly becomes a weakness due to lack of spark and variety. [Mar 2007, p.102]

    It's a shame that it settles for merely good enough when it could have been great. [July 2007, p.88]

    An upbeat adventure that, while simple, throws up enough laughs and chlid-friendly horror thrills to entertain its inteded early teens audience. [Oct 2006, p.105]

    Without motion-sensitive controls, Downhill Jam is a shallow (albeit somewhat enjoyable) game marred by some irritating bugs. [Aug 2007, p.86]

    A competent but characterless racer that rolls, rather than roars over the finish line. Not so much a Maserati as a Mondeo. [Apr 2007, p.85]

    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]

    A few stinkers aside, Jackass is a great bunch of mini-games that capture the essence of the show. [Nov 2007, p.96]

    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]

    Repetitive platform action. It's playable, just, but staggeringly uninventive, uninspiring and instantly forgettable. [Aug 2006, p.101]

    If you're looking for a new football game on PSP, then Street is the friendliest option. [Mar 2006, p.100]

    Stories that are interesting enough but give new meaning to the phrase 'slow-paced.' [Jan 2008, p.100]

    A tidy boxing game in itself, but one that lacks the punch of previous Rocky games or any real element of sophistication. [Feb 2007, p.74]

    A competent FFVII spin-off with enough ties to the past to keep the disciples happy, but for everyone else it's a decent, if uninspired, shooter. [Dec 2006, p.100]
    • Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    • 57 Metascore

    Despite a few technical glitches this is a solid back-to-basics effort with some extra bells and whistles and a load of groove. [July 2007, p.94]

    A competent sequel, but we've seen all of Dynasty Warriors' tricks before and the option to fiddle with your steed is unlikely to attract any new converts. [Christmas 2006, p.97]

    It's a shame, as obvious care has been put into a rather cynical and totally unoriginal concept. Some nice touches, but we've basically seen it all before. [Christmas 2005, p.104]
