    • 69 Metascore
    • 62 Critic Score
    Essentially just "THUG 2" with corridors, and Elephant Man-ugly, too. [Apr 2006, p.89]
    • PC Format
    • 61 Metascore
    • 62 Critic Score
    A solid, if unspectacular hack and slasher. If you're looking for colourful, mindless fantasy action, this is yer man. [Oct 2007, p.56]

    • 72 Metascore
    • 62 Critic Score
    A game destined to be forgotten. [Sept 2011, p.98]

    • 74 Metascore
    • 62 Critic Score
    Ultimately, the lack of a convincing "feel," combined with a predictable and rather uninspired selection of weapons mean War World is never going to grasp you by the imagination and shake you with a hydraulic arm until you lie limp and broken. [Oct 2005, p.98]
    • PC Format
    • 80 Metascore
    • 62 Critic Score
    Tries to include facets of two genres, and feels confused and compromised. [May 2006, p.94]

    • 65 Metascore
    • 62 Critic Score
    Its three hours of solid combat with identical soldiers gets wearing extremely quickly with nothing else to distract you.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 62 Critic Score
    Slog through the first few hours of Need for Speed: Undercover and you'll find something worth playing. But should you have to? [Feb 2009, p.96]
    • PC Format
    • 68 Metascore
    • 62 Critic Score
    A pleasant little game, but far, far too little of it released at this price. [Christmas 2005, p.62]
    • PC Format
    • 65 Metascore
    • 62 Critic Score
    Good, but without the "must keep playing" factor. [April 2006]
    • PC Format
    • 63 Metascore
    • 62 Critic Score
    A bog-standard, enjoyable romp with enough skills and spells to challenge most but nothing to distinguish it from the crowd. [Nov 2006, p.104]
    • PC Format
    • 59 Metascore
    • 62 Critic Score
    Not so bad that you'll want to pluck your own fur out, but that's all. [Nov 2004]
    • PC Format
    • 71 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    You're better off tracking down a copy of "Red Alert 2" on its own. [Sept 2006, p.101]
    • PC Format
    • 65 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    A game that feels a bit like what Lord of the Rings would have been if Tolkein had decided to write it on an Excel spreadsheet. [May 2008, p.113]
    • PC Format
    • 73 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    Tired-looking. [Christmas 2009, p.88]
    • PC Format
    • 58 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    Weary-feeling zoo sim with little new on offer. [Christmas 2005, p.102]
    • PC Format
    • 66 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    Confusing, often nonsensical execution, and a bit slow on the draw. [June 2006, p.91]
    • PC Format
    • 36 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    For a fiver, it's not too bad - a little different, at least. But that's all. [Sept 2008, p.116]
    • PC Format
    • 68 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    An opportunity wasted. [Oct 2009, p.98]
    • PC Format
    • 58 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    It works, and it’s playable, but its remarkable fighting isn’t enough to pull it out of the mire labelled average.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    Likely to remain a bog-basic, reassuringly free shooter that you might just pick up and play in an idle moment on your laptop. Very, very occasionally, in other words. [Apr 2007, p.72]
    • PC Format
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Neither disastrous nor memorable, which is certainly a disservice to a once-proud Nazi-bashing legacy. [Nov 2009, p.92]
    • PC Format
    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The relentlessly brain-dead action gets a bit dull after a while. [Feb 2005, p.85]
    • 55 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Utterly credible action-adventure with an arbitrarily varied difficulty level. [Feb 2005, p.89]
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    When blowing up a car by dropping a boat on it becomes boring, you know there's something fundamentally wrong. [July 2010, p.94]
    • PC Format
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A splendid idea hampered by an average execution and a hideously uninteresting setting.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Pleasant enough, but it feels like little more than a glorified iPhone game. [Christmas 2009, p.95]
    • PC Format
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    This is totally outclassed by new stars like "Company of Heroes,", "Faces of War," and old favourites like the "Close Combat" series. [July 2007, p.68]
    • PC Format
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Highly implausible, but not entirely fun-free. [May 2006, p.90]
    • PC Format
    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Gory and pointless – just one more tedious stealth game.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Glossy but vacuous; a short-lived, slow-paced distraction. [Aug 2004, p.91]
