    This is an adventure game for anyone who loves adventure games, anyone who loves to laugh, and anyone who loves seeing animals represented as gun-toting sociopaths. And who can't admit to at least two of those? [Mar 2007, p.78]

    Episode Two contains some of the series' greatest moments, and it's still every bit as charming as its predecessors, but it's so similar to Half-Life 2 that despite what Valve might believe, we're really left wanting something a bit fresher. [Dec 2007, p.60]

    You'll get a few hours of intriguing and fresh puzzling for your six quid and singing's fun too. [July 2010, p.83]

    One of the most impressive pieces of indie programming we've seen in recent months. [June 2007, p.88]

    Addictive. [Sept 2008, p.74]

    • 82 Critic Score
    In injecting regime change with such sheer raggedy-ass size and balls-out bluster, the developers have joined Rico Rodriguez in pulling off something of a coup. [Dec 2006, p.86]
    • PC Zone UK
    • 73 Metascore
    • 81 Critic Score
    In adding to the weight of maps and playable factions, as a collection, Dawn of War with Soulstorm alongside it sets itself apart from a lot of the more youthful games out there. [Apr 2008, p.66]
    • 77 Metascore
    • 81 Critic Score
    This is a pure action RPG with huge production values, great visuals and a fairly diverting levelling system. It doesn't rewrite the rules of the genre because it isn't supposed to.

    • 81 Critic Score
    Dead Space is a potentially great game that's hamstrung by an attempt to completely ape a console controller with a mouse and keyboard. [Dec 2008, p.58]
    • PC Zone UK
    • 75 Metascore
    • 81 Critic Score
    Timely, compelling, packed with features and slickly presented. [Oct 2007, p.88]

    All in all, this is a rather well-thought out expansion; Obsidians's release of a broken game is the only betrayal. [Christmas 2007, p.93]
    • PC Zone UK
    • 78 Metascore
    • 81 Critic Score
    It has a fantastic atmosphere, a good backstory, and a combat system that, when stable, is more fun than other MMOs'. It fails to break the MMO Quest/mission structure though. [Jan 2008, p.70]

    More fun than 50 Formula One races, with or without Nazi-themed S&M. [Sept 2008, p.71]
    • 85 Metascore
    • 81 Critic Score
    The science may be sub-"Torchwood," but puzzle logic is intact. [June 2008, p.79]

    Makes you feel clever. [Oct 2008, p.64]

    It holds it all together with coherency, and more of a sense of storytelling than was ever apparent in Season One. [Jan 2008, p.75]
    • 78 Metascore
    • 81 Critic Score
    So polished. [May 2010, p.93]

    Strong Bad fans will find this episode essential. [Jan 2009, p.75]

    A wonderfully engaging game; striking in its ease of use and rewarding in terms of depth. [Sept 2006, p.64]

    A deadly good time. [Apr 2010, p.88]

    With the War Of The Ring turnbased campaign also receiving some minor though effective tweaks, this is one add-on pack you should snap up like a slavering Warg. Amazing what's possible when consoles don't get in the way, isn't it?
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's a parody of Lucas and it's a parody of knobbly bits of plastic, sometimes both at the same time. It's just brilliant, and that's where its charm lies. [Nov 2006, p.62]

    For most, wrestling with Battlefront's sprawling intricacies will be an approximation of hell, but for some it will be a strategy-bong heaven. [June 2007, p.74]

    TDU still offers a massive, inviting, and involving world for racing fans to gather in and share their love of cars. All with a cocktail on the side, too. [Mar 2007, p.64]
    • 78 Metascore

    Great setting and atmosphere. [Sept 2009, p.68]

    An accessible business strategy game with choo choos - but behind the faintly sickening opening video, there's a silo full of deep fun to be had here. [Christmas 2006, p.85]
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    I had a great time, all things considered, but it would've been more satisfying to have felt like I was part of a story. [Oct 2010, p.64]
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Moai does manage to disguise the triple-puzzle rut of the series better than the other episodes. [May 2008, p.89]

    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    What it adds - the more capacious level design, the daylight, the mech bits, the cover system - doesn't amount to much more than a garnish of new ideas on an old chicken salad of a game. But as I said, the magic of F.E.A.R. is certainly in position. That basic pleasure of time slowing, of watching a death ballet unfold as glass shatters, masonry crumbles and bodies cartwheel with morbid elegance - it's all intact, and it's as incredible to behold as ever. [Mar 2009, p.56]
