    It looks like it's been lazily ported from the PlayStation 2 because, frankly, it has. [July 2007, p.103]

    Its shear randomness and awfulness is a remarkable sight. Take it from us that its not a spectacle you need to witness first hand, nor have staining your Gamertag forever more.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    For fans only. Fans of masochism, that is. [Oct 2007, p.95]

    The overriding problem is that the central character doesn't fit the environment.
    • 34 Metascore

    One to avoid like Crypto's anal probe. [Mar 2009, p.93]

    CSI: Hard Evidence isn't a game that can be summed up by a single numbers. Instead, it's best summed up by two words and two numbers - five hours, 1,000 gamerpoints. If you buy this, the only thing that needs investigating is your head.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The gaming equivalent of a massage, so unchallenging that your mind can rest up, recharge, and be in good mental health. [June 2008, p.73]

    • 51 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    It's not 'Big' and it's certainly not clever. [June 2008, p.76]

    • 30 Critic Score
    We'd rather be hit by lightning than play Bolt. [May 2009, p.95]

    It's tempting to praise Oxygen for tackling the tricky job of turning this pub sport into an enjoyable videogame but instead, all Oxygen proves is why darts is better off as a novelty mini-game rather than the main attraction.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Nowhere near clever enough to bother with. [Dec 2008, p.100]

    More revolting than it is a revolution. [May 2009, p.87]

    This game originally came out on PC back in 2007, and it really has no place on Xbox 360 in 2009.

    Our brains just shut down after a while. [Nov 2009, p.99]
