    A loving celebration of bullet-hell, which relishes its intricate perfection without the distraction of a whole game's worth of content. [Sept 2011, p.63]

    • 63 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An able-bodied RPG in the land of bland, but one hardly worthy of the Gothic name. [Issue#185, p.64]

    Still an excellent rendition of a niche strategy board game, but AI problems indicate there's still a way to go. [Jan 2010, p.66]

    A very basic adventure game, but more than capable of planting a big dumb grin on your face for its duration. [June 2012, p.64]
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A quick, occasionally funny, RPG piss-take, and a welcome diversion for a few nights' gaming. [Jan 2010, p.69]

    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A surprisingly rich survival horror game that doesn't try to frighten you so much as leave you feeling slightly uneasy. [June 2012, p.65]

    • 70 Critic Score
    For now, though, Bohemia's opus is a boy that would be king; the potential is there, but it's just not ready yet. [Oct 2009, p.70]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Far from a perfect sim, but as a commentary on the industry we follow and love, it's enough to give you pause for thought. [July 2013, p.90]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A pure distillation of old-school gameplay, decanted into a laser-cut crystal goblet of 21st Century awesome. [June 2012, p.66]
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Overall, Grid is an impressive racer, slick enough to forgive its obvious console origins and deep enough to forgive the frustrating AI. [Aug 2008, p.59]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An excellent free-to-play game, but a less than stellar paid experience. Definitely worth the download, but not worth your cash. [Nov 2011, p.44]

    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Gorgeous presentation and clever level design are only held back by mild control issues. [July 2010, p.61]

    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Admirable, but maybe not lovable. Requires stubborn determination on the part of the player. Then it's rewarding. [Nov 2011, p.50]

    If you're into twitchy, fast-paced multiplayer shooters, Altitude might just be worth a look. [Mar 2010, p.75]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Incredible potential squandered by a focus on action and dull quest design. Still a decent romp in co-op, but it could have been so much more. [Nov 2011, p.54]
    • PC PowerPlay
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A game of grand ideas, then, if not grand strategy. There is a core here that deserves further exploration. [Aug 2013, p.83]

    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There are some strong gameplay elements in Watch Dogs, but overall it's merely an adequate open world game. [July 2014, p.46]

    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Elegant and gorgeous but surprisingly difficult. [March 2012, p.64]
