    Might not have been built in a day, but sure feels like it at times. [Sept 2011, p.66]

    Flawed and monotonous. [Mar 2010, p.75]

    The world is gorgeous; the gameplay dull and generic. A disappointing waste of potential. [Feb 2010, p.60]

    The idea of randomly generated levels and scares is sound, it's just that the pieces used are so limited that it becomes horrifyingly boring. [July 2014, p.58]

    Warriors Orochi is basically a semi-automatic keyboard-wearing-out application. You mash away at the keys while some bad graphics grunt at you and even worse techno grunges its ear-grating way through your speakers. [Jul 2008, p.60]

    Tryst makes you wonder what it is about StarCraft II that makes Blizzard's game at all tolerable. [Nov 2012, p.76]

    • 44 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    An unfinished game that requires much more attention before it can realise its incredible promise. [Dec 2012, p.82]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 54 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Disharmony's content is either so buggy or poorly designed that the expansion pack offers an inferior 4X experience to the vanilla of Endless Space. [Sept 2013, p.84]

    • 55 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Plot holes, broken scripting and offensive self-contradiction makes Warfighter one of the worst games we've played all year. [Dec 2012, p.85]

    It's not really worth going to town on this one. Try one of those crazy finished games. [Feb 2013, p.80]

    None of this is enough to save this game from being anything but the mediocre rubbish big development companies with lucrative movie licenses seem to think we want to play. [Aug 2009, p.60]

    In the final analysis, Ford Off-Road is a shambles. Even without the numerous glitches and bugs the underlying game is so poorly realised that we find it hard to recommend this to even the most die-hard of Ford fans. [Jul 2008, p.58]

    The mechanics are competent but in no way fun. [July 2012, p.67]

    Terrible pings, no servers and a tiny player base. [July 2010, p.58]

    Not only fails to live up to the legacy of Duke Nukem, it even fails to be a decent shooter. Don't ruin your precious memories. [Aug 2011, p.60]

    • 45 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Impiously impractical in implementation, impressive only to the impetuous. [Apr 2013, p.88]

    • 36 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    An impenetrable mess with almost nothing to recommend it. Cast this one into the void. [Oct 2012, p.73]

    Looking for the greatest pick-up-and-play top-down car-combat game ever? This isn't it. [Oct 2012, p.80]

    Revisit the Stupid Ned Stark meme instead. It's much more entertaining. [Christmas 2011, p.68]

    Maybe just spend your four bucks on the soundtrack, and go play Tyrian. [Christmas 2011, p.69]

    Not offensive enough to cause outcry, not good enough to warrant paying attention to. [Aug 2015, p.60]

    And it's this amateurish feeling that pervades the game...Best to swat this fly. [Sept 2011, p.71]

    The lesson I learned from The Golden Compass is that children these days can be viewed less as imaginative, problem solving young beings who deserve to be inspired by well made games, and more as an extension of the parental wallet. [Mar 2008, p.60]

    Promising, and if it had the time to finish, or even start, it could've been something fairly decent. Oh well. [December 2013, p.84]

    Commits the quintessential crime of the T&A brawler: the girls aren't even hot. [Issue#253, p.61]

    Boring and repetitive, even in multiplayer. [Sept 2009, p.68]

    Also, I'm pretty sure my farm is under surveillance by Interpol, because identical gunmetal grey FWDs keep spooling past on the highway just near my barn. [Mar 2011, p.73]

    • 20 Critic Score
    A vile, ugly, offensive and ignorant game that should have been left to rot in an old box of floppies. Why did this get Kickstarted? [Sept 2013, p.85]

    Pretty screenshots are the only thing salvaged from this space debris. [Apr 2011, p.63]
