    Very little new to see here. [Feb 2011, p.97]

    Not as special as it thinks it is. [Apr 2013, p.89]

    A fun concept, but the lack of depth turns it into a snorkelling trip rather than an undersea odyssey. [Aug 2008, p.95]

    A light but worthwhile fitness game. [Feb 2011, p.99]

    There's no online play, use of the camera is minimal, the only things you unlock are extra difficulty levels for the mini-games that already exist, and it just feels a little bare. Maybe wait until it drops to the £15 mark, then by all means give it a whirl.

    A by-the-numbers recreation of the show. [Feb 2012, p.103]

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

    This is impossible to get excited about. [Jan 2014, p.84]

    The end fight where you have to plug every single enemy and boss before facing the unfairly tough villain is the stuff of legends...Co-op play is essential if you want to finish the game. [Feb 2007, p.100]

    Looks generic, but plays fresh. [Apr 2011, p.109]

    Contender for the dullest game ever made. [May 2008, p.93]

    The best thing that can be said about ProStroke Golf...is that you can speed through a game pretty efficiently. [Issue#65, p.97]

    It's so much easier to forgive glitches, outdated visuals and flick-book framerate when you've got a friend laughing at them too, but this doesn't mean we should forgive them. Should Riptide wash up on your shore, you'd best throw in back in.
    • 57 Metascore

    Loss of (creative) control. [Mar 2010, p.96]
    • 57 Metascore

    The only thing this is good for is scrap. [May 2012, p.97]

    Feels unfinished. [Jan 2015, p.84]

    It represents the sport in a grittier light than the super-polished Fight Night series.

    One for hardcore collectors only. [Aug 2007, p.101]

    While it's a quick-fix burst of fun, the fact SkyHeroes is a kids' game isn't an excuse to be this shallow. [Issue#66, p.98]

    Not the home run we'd hoped for. [June 2012, p.96]

    A decent port of the classic board game. [Mar 2009, p.93]

    Like being trapped in a barrel of monkeys. [June 2011, p.103]

    Critical flaws in every major respect, then, and yet it just about hangs together. There's an affecting moodiness to it, a real satisfaction when you do chain together several silent kills, and the low-tech 1940s setting lends a refreshing purity to the sneak 'em up genre. With a little more polish, further adventures for Violette could well be to die for.

    Enough to make Blackbeard retire. [Dec 2012, p.97]

    A functional if predictable four-player beat 'em up. Does everything you'd expect from a Turtles game, but nothing more. [April 2006, p.88]

    Guilty pleasure - with emphasis on guilty. [Oct 2010, p.111]

    A dated and repetitive shooter. [July 2007, p.105]

    Perfect for quick blasts of fun. [Jan 2010, p.112]

    Overall, though, with its fundamentally flawed handling, glitchy physics and a tendency for the game to just play itself, Sonic Riders is a huge disappointment. [April 2006, p.84]
    • Official Xbox Magazine UK
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    This is never going to be the game that sets the world alight or is a critical success - but it is far from a cheap cash in like many party games, and might just prove the right direction for Rare's misjudged franchise.
