    It's not really doing anything groundbreaking. [Dec 2007, p.76]
    • 72 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    That exhilarating core deserves more than the pretty rancid crust that tops it. [Aug 2010, p.76]

    • 64 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    An effective, old school strategy game of properly strategic proportions. [Oct 2006, p.70]

    • 70 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    Hellgate's done itself a disservice, because it's hidden some decent fun underneath a dated, linear and difficult-to-love veneer.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    If you can struggle past the interface, the game itself if baseball gold. [Sept 2009, p.71]

    • 66 Metascore

    Pretty absorbing. [May 2008, p.87]

    • 79 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    An absolute ton of very German micromanagement. [June 2010, p.87]
    • PC Zone UK
    • 78 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    That this is the last game in the Penumbra series is a genuine tragegy, because the series has finally found its footing. [Apr 2006, p.84]
    • PC Zone UK
    • 77 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    Not PC friendly. [Dec 2008, p.75]

    More Tufnell than Warne. [Nov 2009, p.74]

    • tbd Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    If only it didn't look like such a dog's dinner. [Jan 2010, p.80]
    • PC Zone UK
    • 53 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    That the developers have endeavoured - and succeeded - in modelling the social turmoil of the period makes this a unique, rewarding, and dense experience that demands dedication and will reward players with weeks, if not months, of unique historical wargaming. [Sept 2006, p.80]
    • PC Zone UK
    • 79 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    A really involving little sim. [Christmas 2009, p.78]
    • 81 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    The problem is that most of the downloadable content is aimed at specific character types: a pure combat character probably won't give a stuff about spell tomes or a Wizard's tower, while the average mage will find the powerful new quest items totally useless. You're far better off just choosing the content you want online, and this works out a hell of a lot cheaper too, even if you buy everything (£12).
    • 61 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    For 20 quid, it's a half-decent ride while it lasts. [Sept 2007, p.73]
    • PC Zone UK
    • 82 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    The joy of breaking things apart with giant hammers really is enough to prop up any amount of dull shooting. [Oct 2009, p.58]
    • PC Zone UK
    • 80 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    Playing Toki Tori is like putting your finger into a kitten's mouth, only to realise that the kitten is actually a great white shark. Except this is a good thing. [Oct 2010, p.86]

    • 69 Metascore

    The problem with Jack Keane is that it's just not funny. The game tries too hard to be something its not. [May 2008, p.78]
    • PC Zone UK
    • 74 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    A worthy successor to the Caesar family of titles. But chances are, you already know if this is going to be your cup of tea - follow your heart, young governor. [Christmas 2006, p.92]
    • 76 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    A better proposition than the first remake. [Aug 2010, p.86]

    Cossacks II remains an enjoyable re-enactment of wholesale slaughter as any of you couuld hope for. [Sept 2006, p.74]
    • 74 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    Effective time Hoover. [July 2008, p.84]

    • 61 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    More of a solid warrior and less of a gaming god. [Oct 2007, p.80]
    • 85 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    Deserves praise for artistic flair, but when it comes to gameplay approach with caution. [Jan 2010, p.81]
    • PC Zone UK
    • 65 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    Two Worlds isn't a masterpiece, but it is entertaining. It's deep. [Nov 2007, p.78]
    • PC Zone UK
    • 68 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    With the superior "Company of Heroes" looming over the proceedings, JTF's lovely graphics, underused media twist and modern settings mask a solid but perhaps rather uninspired take on the genre. [Dec 2006, p.82]
    • PC Zone UK
    • 75 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    Anyone with half an eye can see how the presentation levels have been slipping like a ferret on ice over the last few years. [Nov 2007, p.84]
    • PC Zone UK
    • 70 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    As a sandbox game, it shines in the hands of those who take it for what it is - an "A-Team" simulator - but as a narrative shooter, it falls flat. [Dec 2008, p.72]
    • PC Zone UK
    • 82 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    And even though the game is rich with tension (certainly enough to offset the mediocre graphics), unless you're at her majesty's pleasure, you probably won't have the time.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    One of the most challenging and addictive city-builders we've played this year. [Jan 2007, p.70]
