    An Xbox port that looks a little green around the gills. [Sept 2006, p.99]

    As an alternative to "The Sims," only the abundance of nipples saves it. [Apr 2005, p.104]

    • 35 Critic Score
    It barely raises a smile, reducing most gamers to a grim comatose zomebie-state, the only sign a life now a dull flicker of hate in their glazed, cold eyes. [Christmas 2004, p.107]

    It's an awkward strategy game that tries to step out of the turn-based frying pan and ends up in the unplayable-pap fire. [May 2006]

    It wasn't fun. [Jan 2010, p.93]

    A perfect storm of cynical derivative design and slipshod implementation. [June 2008, p.102]

    We can't think of a time throughout the history of the PC when this might have been considered a well-executed title. [Christmas 2006, p.92]

    • 55 Metascore
    • 34 Critic Score
    The game boils down to hammering the hit button until all the identikit bad guys have turned red and vanished. It's cack. Avoid. [June 2007, p.64]

    Genuinely uninteresting racing. [July 2009, p.94]

    • 58 Metascore
    • 34 Critic Score
    On PC, however, it's an utter travesty. You'd have to be crazier than the Rabbids themselves to buy the PC version of this game. [Feb 2007, p.68]

    A sim of Arnie’s election campaign would be more entertaining.

    Drivel. [Mar 2007, p.76]

    • tbd Metascore
    • 32 Critic Score
    Cheap, tired and dull. Avoid it, and the inevitable fourth sequel. [Nov 2004, p.103]

    Is there a form I can fill in to get these hours of my life back? [Feb 2010, p.95]

    • 57 Metascore
    • 32 Critic Score
    An ugly WW2 RTS. Full of text-based mission intros and no joy whatsoever. The controls are clunky, the unit models are thoroughly basic and utterly devoid of any graphical niceties. [May 2007, p.68]

    • 40 Metascore
    • 32 Critic Score
    Fill your house with treacle and grenades instead. That's actually more fun. [Sept 2005, p.102]

    Crude and boring. Stick a cork up Larry's ass and his game in the bin. [Christmas 2004, p.120]
    • 61 Metascore
    • 32 Critic Score
    The core game itself can't stand alone and captivate its audience as much as it confuses them. [Oct 2007, p.65]

    A PS2 port, when there's an Xbox 360 version? This is a dreadful example of shameless corner cutting and an awful game. [Aug 2008, p.107]
    • PC Format
    • 48 Metascore
    • 31 Critic Score
    An awful port of a dismal console game. Buying this would be a crime-in-itself. [July 2005, p.98]

    Go buy the book, it'll last longer, give you more joy and won't make you feel like your brain's leaking out of your ears. [Mar 2007, p.76]

    • 26 Critic Score
    Sonic Riders resembles what I can only imagine Keith Richards' worst nightmares are like, but rendered in 1999-qualitiy Playstation-o-vision. What's more, if you have an ATI card, it's framerate is slower than evolution itself. [June 2007, p.64]

    If you find your trigger finger itching, you'd better buy yourself a WWII or sci-fi shooter to sate your appetite, because Kuma/War manages to get it very wrong. In every single sense. [Dec 2004, p.101]

    • 40 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    Combine all of this with shocking AI, unfair combat and limited ammo, and you're looking at a veritable festival of the mediocre. [June 2005, p.101]

    It looks lovely, but plays like an out-of-tune banjo, thanks to the notorious trial-and-error gameplay. [Sept 2006, p.104]

    One of the worst adventures I've ever played. [Sept 2008, p.116]

    The only thing you'll be smashing if you buy this game is the area surrounding your PC. It really is truly offensive. [Sept 2008, p.114]

    It's as much fun as cycling up the wrong side of the M5. [Sept 2008, p.115]
