    Not a patch on the big screen version. [Jan 2010, p.115]

    Poorly conceived structures supporting too little new content mean this is, sadly, a great waste. [Feb 2015, p.86]

    A scabby swab that plumbs the depps. [July 2007, p.100]

    As a box set it's just over-packaged and over-priced nostalgia. [Dec 2012, p.97]

    This is one unnecessary relic that can be safely re-buried. [Apr 2014, p.89]

    Much of Front Mission Evolved is simply surviving until the next repair kit, and there's not enough customisation to make the online battles truly compelling. However, that saving grace - the intense, supersized combat - should be enough to see you through the short single-player campaign.

    Some great ideas, but derezzes in its execution.

    Lost Planet 3's basic competence doesn't mask an almost complete reliance on recycled fetch quests. Its story ends on a relative high, but once the pace finally picks up in the final couple of hours, it's much too late and the 14-hour slog to get there isn't worth the payoff.

    Gloriously shallow co-op shooting. [July 2013, p.79]

    Lacking tension, variety and punctuation, Blade Kitten is a pretty cutscene sandwich with no filling. [Issue#66, p.101]

    Ninja Gaiden serves up some Hollywood setpieces with a rock-solid combat system. Forgive the hyperactive cameraman and choose the right difficulty, because the wrong one will ruin your game.

    A third-person action-adventure with the beating black heart of a survival horror, Alone in the Dark is a game that needs to be experienced by everybody. Its novel approach of applying shocks into an episodic structure, eight hourly segments in all, is a masterstroke.

    With a bit of fine-tuning, Powerslide could be a championship contender. As it stands, it's still a few tweaks away from being truly race-ready.

    More than ever, Dynasty Warriors feels like an uncomfortable timefart.

    Half precision-shooter, half-acid trip, We Are Doomed is like two ends of different cars shunted together by an unscrupulous dealer. Sadly, it’s likely to fall apart around you when the going gets tough.

    A glaring oversight. The turtles all differ, but there's no multiplayer option in the game, either in the main adventure or a separate mode. [May 2007, p.92]

    Vigilante 8: Arcade is a glorious throwback to a simpler age in gaming, one that older gamers can appreciate and younger gamers can discover. It will only be as fun for as long as the Live community is there to support it but it's damn fun, so jump on while it lasts.
