    • 49 Critic Score
    Overwhelmingly unremarkable. [Nov 2006, p.84]
    • 62 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    Transparently not finished. [June 2010, p.80]
    • 65 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    Granted, there's potential aplenty here, but with AI this idiotic, Legion Arena can only go down as a massively missed opportunity, more fit for the glue factory than the glories of war. Shame really.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    Championing pre-rendered backgrounds in this day and age immediately makes Neverend feel dated, and the gameplay does little to lift that 'samey' feeling. Despite its decent character models and combat system, there are plenty of other RPGs far more worthy of your time.

    By peddling this sort of single-minded crud to children EA are creating a new generation of absolute morons who won't be able to think one step ahead of themselves. [May 2008, p.86]
    • 42 Metascore

    The only things you'll get out of Stormrise are a headache and a stress-related heart attack from trying to select a unit. [June 2009, p.66]
    • 58 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    At best, this DLC is thoughtless, unoriginal and for those who simply must have two extra skill points. At worst, it's a waste of time and money, and poor form by Gearbox. [Apr 2010, p.88]
    • 66 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    The puzzles are the main problem. [May 2010, p.90]
    • 55 Metascore
    • 47 Critic Score
    Sadly, much of the novelty wore off soon after and the rest of the game left me, just like many in the film, dead in the water.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 47 Critic Score
    Sadly, ten years on, Hospital Tycoon has added nothing new to "Theme Hospital's" stellar gameplay and ends up feeling, a bit like its subject, cold and clinical. [Aug 2007, p.75]
    • 60 Metascore
    • 47 Critic Score
    Massively ambitious, massively unplayable. [Sept 2007, p.74]
    • 63 Metascore
    • 47 Critic Score
    Despite it being more intuitive than the Combat Mission games, Africa 1943 is no picnic. [May 2010, p.88]
    • 39 Metascore
    • 46 Critic Score
    It's still ploddingly adequate in an unsurprising way, but the faults are just too many. [Sept 2006, p.72]
    • 55 Metascore
    • 46 Critic Score
    Hateful game. [Sept 2008, p.60]
    • 52 Metascore
    • 46 Critic Score
    Avoid. [Nov 2008, p.75]
    • 69 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    Peacekeeper. [Oct 2007, p.75]
    • 68 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    A hollow, mind-numbingly dull MMORPG grind that stretches the boundaries of good taste and sensible design decisions.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    The bottom line is that these events, while fairly dreary in reality, simply have no place in a game. For all its production values and official licence, ultimately you'd have a more interactive experience playing with a yoyo while watching the Winter Olympics on the telly.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    If you enjoy below average games or like adventures where the voices cut out halfway through every single sentence, then this one is for you. [Oct 2009, p.72]
    • 65 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    Frustrating controls. [July 2009, p.70]
    • 53 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    Humour doesn't work. [June 2010, p.86]
    • 44 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    Lumbering and zombified. [Aug 2010, p.89]
    • 67 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    You really would be better off buying The Sims 2 and its Pets expansion though, and making up your own stories in your head. [Sept 2007, p.82]
    • 58 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    For anyone who hasn't already got a helicopter license though, playing Enemy Engaged 2 is about as much fun as eating a pair of sheep's testicles. Yum. [Sept 2007, p.84]
    • 65 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    I can't deplore enough how little story there is. [Apr 2009, p.66]
    • 34 Metascore
    • 43 Critic Score
    The glass isn't 'half empty,' it isn't even 'not full.' It's a soundless, hateful asphyxiating void. [Oct 2007, p.74]
    • 54 Metascore
    • 43 Critic Score
    Everything about it feels floaty and disconnected, slowing down time makes you feel really sluggish and inaccurate, and you can forget about hitting anything while driving as your crosshair is jerked about rudely like a pogo-stick at a sexy bikini photoshoot. [Dec 2006, p.80]
    • 47 Metascore
    • 43 Critic Score
    MKA's unresponsiveness and emptiness gives it the air of an MMO that was canned and crammed into a single-player format, or was designed for the soloing MMO player. [Jan 2007, p.82]
    • 57 Metascore
    • 43 Critic Score
    LOTR deserves a better action game than this, and with the rich source material available to them, Pandemic and EA should be ashamed of themselves for unleashing this on the general public - even if we know it'll go straight to the top of the charts regardless. [Apr 2009, p.52]
