    Not enough content and too much grinding detracts from the great cast of characters and great presentation. [Issue#252, p.58]

    Mildly satisfying. [Mar 2011, p.73]

    • 60 Critic Score
    A tribute to Doom that leaps to great heights, but fails to fully stick the landing. [Issue#252, p.60]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 54 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A competent enough shooter, but perhaps a touch too ambitious in its scope. Still, it's a massive improvement on the first Homefront. [Issue#252, p.62]

    • 80 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The rest of us might like future instalments to try something else, or at the very least tweak the formula rather than copy its shortcomings. [Mar 2008, p.61]

    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The foundation for a sophisticated swordplayer is here, but War of the Roses misses the jugular by forgetting to include the rest. [Dec 2012, p.74]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It might have had a bumpy take-off, but with a bit of hard work Flight should grow into a competent sim worth flying. [May 2012, p.56]
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Deeply flawed in execution but fascinating nonetheless, Never Alone shows that different cultures have wonderful stories to tell. [Jan 2015, p.63]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A clever take on traditional tower defence, but little real longevity. [May 2012, p.64]
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Preposterous, hilarious, and above all, devious. Tricky doesn't begin to describe it. [June 2011, p.72]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Beautiful graphics don't make up for the oddly empty feeling inside. [Issue#185, p.68]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 81 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An ambitious game hobbled by laborious, unsatisfying combat and a "ready-made" approach to quest design that undermines player autonomy. [Dec 2015, p.58]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 82 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Really only compelling for folks who keep their gaming world PC-pure. Otherwise, pick this up on the console of your choice. [Dec 2009, p.66]

    Bulletstorm is perfectly designed to appeal to the 14 year old boys who can't buy it because it's rated MA15+. [May 2011, p.64]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Fun enough, but hardly anything new under the shooter sun. [May 2014, p.58]

    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Another victim of the curse of the port, but the golden Ghostbusting heart still shines through. [Christmas 2009, p.58]

    At its core, Street Fighter V is a great game, but the lack of meaningful content makes us want to wait for updates. [Issue#249, p.52]

    We think Battle March works best as a companion to a serious tabletop Warhammer player… On the other hand, if your love for RTS is equal to your love for Games Workshop, then Dawn of War should remain your Warhammer game of choice. [Aug 2008, p.60]

    An immersive environment and interesting story. It can be hard and could do with clearer text. [Issue#249, p.64]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Richly detailed graphics don't make up for the shallow, simplistic trading and combat. [Nov 2010, p.60]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 60 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A frustrating, obtuse, weirdly satisfying experience, covered in yayness and cute. [Apr 2012, p.56]
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Complex without being deep, Brink is a hollow interpretation of Splash Damage's classic teamplay formula that speaks to the very core of what is wrong with multiplayer FPS today. [July 2011, p.58]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 81 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Fast and flashy combat in a shallow fantasy world. For the solo MMO player only. [Apr 2012, p.62]
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An intriguing idea that the franchise is yet to live up to. [Apr 2012, p.64]
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A fresh, solid roguelike platformer that kills time with as much efficiency as it kills the player. [Feb 2013, p.82]

    • 60 Critic Score
    For its genre, Beijing 2008 appears to have succeeded. If you’re a hardcore gamer, you already know this won’t be your cup of tea. For everyone else, watch out for the RSI and everything will be gravy. [Nov 2008, p.55]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Solid enough, if not a candidate for natural selection. [July 2011, p.68]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Beautiful to look at and stunning to listen to but lacking any real depth when it actually comes to play. [Sept 2014, p.52]

    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Don't let the name fool you: Unepic is huge, but whether players will want to see the quest to its ends is another matter. [Apr 2012, p.66]
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The puzzles don't hold up against Wadjet Eye titles, but the writing remains strong. [Feb 2014, p.85]
