    Lips sets out to take the karaoke genre by storm, but ultimately doesn't hit the high notes thanks to a lacklustre single-player affair, lack of online options and a meagre track list.

    While it isn't the ultimate Spiderman title that gamers have been clamouring for, Spiderman: Web of Shadows provides gamers with a slice of web-slinging fun.

    The lack of content lets down an otherwise competent racer.

    Destroy All Humans! 2 keeps a lot of what was good about the first game and adds enough to make it something of a better experience. Somehow loses a bit to the material and to glitch issues that shouldn't be found in games released in this period of a console cycle.

    Secret Agent Clank is playable and even enjoyable at many points, but is brought down by some very questionable stealth sections, a dodgy camera and a lack of overall innovation. Certainly not bad, but not great either.

    Rabbids: Alive and Kicking is a collection of party games that's worth picking up if you plan on playing with others, but if not, only hardcore Rabbids fans need apply.

    Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 is a fairly good Sonic game that brings the franchise back to school, but several shortcomings prevent it from reaching greatness.

    A competent mini-game collection, with some nice nostalgia for Mario & Sonic fans and plenty of waggle.

    Perhaps the most casual Dragon Quest game to date, TMQATTOM is a case of too little, too late, and is difficult to recommend to anyone but a casual or perhaps younger gamer.

    If you are looking for a console shooter on the handheld, then this is your best bet. It's unfair to expect more from the PSP when the demands are so huge, but the PSP is easily online ready, and Star Wars Battlefront II just doesn't feel the same without going online.

    Minor errors corrupt what might have been a good game.

    Magical Melodies doesn’t foal around. What kernels of entertainment can be extracted from its time-consuming gameplay are let down by lazy aesthetics and an overall confusing design for newcomers to the franchise.

    While the vision is pure, the final execution is anything but. However, purity has never been a requirement for some, and for anyone after a simple, if shallow Hawk experience on the Wii, this may provide the goods.

    ParaWorld is an enjoyable, yet highly simple and traditional, real-time strategy title that gets a few points knocked off purely because of its dated concepts and poor execution.

    Crash of the Titans is fun, but it's really just platforming by the numbers. Nothing more, nothing less.

    While there are a lot of positive elements to Age of Empires Online which see it retain the series' core strategy mechanics, you can't help but shake the feeling that there is a decent amount of content hidden away from you.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    While it isn’t the perfect Spyro game, it still manages to be a decent and enjoyable action title. Sadly, repetitive gameplay and a short lifespan hurt a lot of its overall quality.

    Flock! is a fun puzzling game, offering surprising depth and variation for all you good shepherds. The somewhat fiddly controls stop it from being great, however. Now flock off.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    A lightweight, yet fun, title which should appeal to those who are new to the Strategy genre, or those that want a more relaxing experience. Its only major drawback is that its more of a sidestep than a revolution of the series.

    An improvement over Champions of Norrath, but just doesn't do enough to separate itself from the other games which have preceded it.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Shattered Memories is an uneven, disappointing game which nevertheless shows ample promise of where the series might go from here. Fingers crossed that Climax re-evaluates the abysmal nightmare sequences and ups the fright-factor while maintaining their shrewd emphasis on pared-back, psychological horrors.

    Rainbow Six Vegas is a short but entertaining first-person shooter that will attract fans of the Tom Clancy games, but not much beyond that.

    If it's your only option, then Capcom Puzzle World provides one of the most comprehensive Super Puzzle Fighter II experiences for you.

    Order of War does little to justify a purchase above the likes of the truly great recent RTS efforts out there, giving gamers a short distraction before returning to the big guns of the genre.
    • 75 Metascore

    All the problems in the game are common areas that all RTS games should focus to be at their best, but Blitzkrieg II fails to fix any of them, and therefore results in an average RTS outing.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    The action can become a little bit repetitive, and the adventure aspects of old Spyro titles are gone, but it does feel like a New Beginning for the franchise.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    A competent RPG that is hampered by several minor flaws. The controls are simple to pick up, and battles are quick and enjoyable. Some players however will get frustrated by the repetitive nature of the job licenses, the translation issues and the lack of a detailed map. If you don't have high expectations though, then there's enough on offer to keep you interested.

    Silverfall is not particularly a bad game, it just is not a groundbreaking game in a genre that has had several heavyweights that still shine to this very day. The game has a handful of irritating bugs that you would typically never see in other games, and ultimately hurts the final product. There is still plenty of enjoyment to be found with Silverfall though.

    If you intend to play with friends and family, Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 is a great title to add to your collection. If you intend to go solo, then the experience isn’t so great.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Fans of the original, or people who enjoy a game that offers little challenge, but strong narrative, may want to check this out. If it’s action and involving gameplay you're after, leave this one well alone.
