    • 77 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    A frustrating experience. [June 2008, p.106]
    • PC Format
    • 65 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    Stuck halfway between the arcade slots and po-faced flight simulation, and in the process takes itself far too seriously. [Oct 2011, p.105]

    • 62 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    An unexpectedly charming diversion of a game, but one that ultimatey fails to deliver on its early promise. A shame, really. [Apr 2007, p.62]

    • 58 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    A largely by-the-numbers real-time strategy effort that twinkles but never shines. It's just a little bit too irritating to score highly. [Apr 2007, p.63]

    • 64 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    Homecoming adds a few small elements to the mix. [Jan 2009, p.100]

    • 78 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    It's as repetitive and automatic as running in with the shotgun was in Doom 3. This joke isn't funny any more. [June 2005, p.90]
    • PC Format
    • 81 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    A bona fide labour of love that evidently had the blinkers on.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    Slow progress and lack of originality detract from a fun if bland title. [Aug 2006, p.100]
    • PC Format
    • 75 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    It is engaging, interesting, and definitely a little bit of a break from the norm. [July 2007, p.71]
    • PC Format
    • 86 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    It's not all bad - a few neat touches will bring a tear to old-skoolers' eyes, such as the random random generator for invasion battle odds. It's not enough to wow those spoilt by "Civ IV," though. [Apr 2006, p.95]
    • PC Format
    • 68 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    Solid, but hampered mostly by a terrible lack of depth. [Oct 2006, p.95]

    • 78 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    Creativity and gags galore, but we’re too close to falling asleep.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    There are no real uprisings to be found in THe Warchiefs' colonies. [Christmas 2006, p.102]
    • PC Format
    • 71 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    Stormtroopers shouldn’t be easier to kill than llamas, and Rodians shouldn’t wear hotpants and start dancing in campsites.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    Not an unwanted game, just one that's an uninspiring, run-of-the-mill shooter - aside from the lead curving. [June 2009, p.97]
    • PC Format
    • 70 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    Largely solid, but it's just not exciting. [Jan 2009, p.99]

    I'm convinced that the captain of a supertanker has more to do to shift 350 metres of iron than press cursor keys. [Oct 2007, p.64]

    • 70 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    We’re left with a terribly flawed gem that catches the light one moment and cuts with a jagged edge the next. We hope the dozens of glitches, bugs and random crashes can be wiped away with a patch.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    All the freedom in the universe and nothing much to do with it. Prepare for a slog. [Christmas 2005, p.88]

    • 68 Critic Score
    Most Puzzle Quest aficionados will quickly end up returning to the original.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 67 Critic Score
    It's cute in an exploding flatulence kind of way, but the actual gameplay itself is pretty tedious and repetitive. [July 2007, p.70]
    • PC Format
    • 78 Metascore
    • 67 Critic Score
    Great sound and visuals, but unremittingly repetitive gameplay. [July 2006, p.101]
    • PC Format
    • 61 Metascore
    • 67 Critic Score
    There is fun to be found in Infernal, but you have to go through purgatory to find it and even when you get there, it's certainly not my idea of heaven. [Apr 2007, p.71]
    • PC Format
    • 62 Metascore
    • 67 Critic Score
    It lacks enough of a hook for existing MMORPG fans to sink into, and there’s many, many competing titles that offer a more exciting holiday in the land of orcs, elves and shrieking demons with gold up their bottoms.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 67 Critic Score
    Accurate rugby, but re-mapping controllers requires fiendish text file editing. [Mar 2006, p.101]
    • PC Format
    • 69 Metascore
    • 67 Critic Score
    The "Serious Sam" of the "D&D" genre: fast, brutal, and ultimately a teeny bit dull. [Apr 2005, p.100]
    • 65 Metascore
    • 67 Critic Score
    Even the addition of well animated and suitably menacing dinosaurs can't save this from being a bland, forgettable FPS. [Aug 2008, p.100]
    • PC Format
    • 72 Metascore
    • 67 Critic Score
    There's fun to be had, but it's harder work than it should be - a case of feature overload. [Aug 2004, p.82]
    • 56 Metascore
    • 67 Critic Score
    Nice ideas, poorly executed in the main. Shows some promise online. [Dec 2005, p.96]
    • PC Format
    • tbd Metascore
    • 67 Critic Score
    Not pretty or that clever, but tykes may find this amusing for a few hours if they're not already hooked up to "The Sims." [July 2008, p.113]
