    Blazing Angels 2: Secret Missions has very little to do with war or flying but it's pretty fun to play and nice to watch. And that's enough for me. [Oct 2007]

    Lag and framerate issues spoils a decent sci fi shooter. [Aug 2008]

    Wii is just right platform for olympic games. For example Archery and High Jump are just excellent. It's a shame, that some of the events suffers from fiddly controls like Single Sculls and Table Tennis. Generally game is quite fun and it works best with bunch of sporty friends. [Mar 2008]

    Beautiful Katamari is the same old Katamari with high definition graphics. That's it - and it's also very short. Still the original quirky idea provides a few hours of gay old time.

    Fails to rise above mediocrity. The game is surprisingly enjoyable at times and has genuinely interesting gameplay elements, but the clumsy UI ruins the fun. [June 2007]

    A decent party game with a nice twist. Brain training is not awfully scientific, but it is fun enough to keep you entertained a few minutes a day. [Sept 2007]

    The old king of rally is back. Who needs realism when the cars are this fun to drive and the world is so wonderfully vivid? What the game could have used is more variety in its tracks – and more tracks. [Oct 2007]

    Offers plenty of minigames (attractions) in Story Mode. They are clever enough to make a fun gaming experience for quite a while. The use of stylus is essential and adds up the the pleasure. The original style Bomberman is included as Battle Mode. More complex puzzles, twists in the plot and less one dimensional characters would have made this a gem instead of just a jolly nice game. Compared to the horrid Wii-version this is a masterpiece though. [May 2008]

    Bus Driver was more interesting than I thought, but lis too simplified.. It really should have a view from driver’s seat, and interacting with passengers would be nice too. [Jan 2008]

    Your basic run-of-the-mill action game, which manages to entertain for a while. The controls are awkward and sadly the environments are not affected by the destruction and mayhem. The optional hero objective is a great idea. [June 2008]

    The Lord of the Rings: Conquest has some good movielike moments but overall suffers from a boring and difficult single player mode and lousy controls on the PC. The multiplayer is decent enough if you're into epic but rather simple fantasy action. [Feb 2009]

    Technically neat and almost delivers the feeling of being part of a massive battle. The lack of strategy unfortunately turns the game into a mediocre hack and slash. [Mar 2009]

    Stylized over the top cartoon violence in black and white.... and blood-red. There's a lot to like in MadWorld. Only for a brief time however since the game doesn't have depth or longevity. The gameplay is rough around the edges and there are some technical niggles. The poor European conversion with 50 Hz screen refresh and black borders is worth a special mention. The shame! [May 2009]

    A simple hack slash RPG with a lot of repetition. Still - the action is fairly addictive and the beautiful 2D art creates a charming atmosphere. [Dec 2009]

    Oh dear, Relic. Handful of short, small and laughably easy scenarios really was not what I waited for or wanted. Relic’s new obsession for ”accessibility” is ruining its games. [May 2009]

    A fun and an original little online shooter that suffers from lack of players and dodgily set-up servers. [June 2009]

    Section 8 tries to combine with some success many of the best elements of popular multiplayer shooters and boosts the package with rocket-powered action. Unfortunately not many players have found the game. [Nov 2010]

    Although the winter sports offer a nicer setup for the Olympics than the summer games, this evolved shake-until-you-drop clone of good old button-punching ’Games-series doesn’t captivate the spirit of the competition. The game surely has it’s moments, but those moments are somewhat rare. For single player this is definitely a no-no, but as a party game it performs quite nicely. [Nov 2010]

    Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days looks astonishing for a DS game, but is afflicted with a disease called reiteration. Players who know their Kingdom Hearts inside out will find nothing new here. The worlds, the Disney characters and even the music of 358/2 Days are recycled from its predecessors. The game has its high points, such as the combat system and the sentimental atmosphere, but ultimately falls to mediocrity. [Dec 2009]

    Dragon Age: Origins - Return to Ostagar is little more than a short sightseeing quest in the snow-covered ruins of Ostagar. A few hours' worth of fighting the same old enemies doesn't quite cut it as good DLC, but thankfully the pricing is in line with this. [Mar 2010]

    Has some potential, but there are simply too many bots and too few actual players. [May 2010]

    • 75 Critic Score
    It’s got the freedom (partly) and it’s got realism (mostly) but it’s also badly designed with strict time limits, scarce checkpoints, bad AI, loads of bugs and a netcode that isn't worth a damn. It’s still rewarding though and it doesn’t have much competition on consoles. [Nov 2010]

    Too linear and short, but it has a nice atmosphere to it and many enjoyable missions. Poor graphics and moronic companions detract from the experience, though. [Jan. 05]

    Fun to play and easy to look at, but the gameplay is ultimately a bit too straightforward and shallow. It is borderline outrageous that the single-player campaign lasts only for 5 hours. [Apr 2006]

    Ford Street Racing has something others do not: one-player team championships. With three cars in one team the competitions can get quite interesting. Unfortunately the gameplay is too sedated and the action too sterile. There are better arcade racers out there. [April 2006]

    Too flawed to be enjoyable. The AI cheats mercilessly, and scoring goals is not much fun, since you can score all of them with just one trick. The vastly different players are nice, though. [Sept 2006]

    Hamilton's Great Adventure is a well thought-out, fun puzzle game that offers a nice amount of content for a game of this price range. Sadly, it doesn't really have anything that would truly make it stand out from the numerous puzzle games on the market. It is entertaining, but not exactly a classic. [Sept 2011]

    This weird exploitation version of Alan Wake is filled with dirty jokes and interesting scenery. Unfortunately the dull controls make the game situated in hell feel like it's from hell. If you can get past the clunky controls and cramped level design, the game is quite good substitute while the next Resident Evil is in the making. [Aug 2011]

    Better than Battlefield Heroes, but worse than real Battlefields. What is target audience? [May 2011]

    Ridge Racer 3D is a fast and relaxed arcade racer, but the cars and tracks are much prettier on big consoles. [May 2011]
