    A repetitive action game with comic book heroes. The lack of variation and camera issues are its biggest problems. The game is at its best when playing with a friend. [Jan 2007]

    Loses in almost every aspect to old Combat Mission 2. Having a campaign mode does not cure the general mediocrity and the irritating UI deficiencies. [Sept 2006]

    SSX Blur does not use the full potential of the Wii controls. I want to twist, shout, jump and run around the TV screen, not just tilt the wiimote a little bit. The game looks and sounds great. [Apr 2007]

    An outrageously corny and a massively extravagant shooter that delivers plenty of short-lived fun, but the severe repetition and absurd length of the game eat away at the spirit of the fast-paced shooter. [Jan 2008]

    Same old GTA with an uninteresting plot and lame characters, but it is still pretty fun. The soundtrack is superb. [Apr 2007]

    Having a big wide open playing area is a nice addition in many ways but unfortunately in the current form the pros don’t outweight the cons. Having to find your own route doesn’t quite fit the series and the dreadful car navigation system doesn’t help either. Also having to drive back to the starting line to restart a race is a big flaw and the decission to replace Crash with boring Showtime is bizarre. Still the basis of the game is so strong that even with obvious flaws the game is still quite fun especially in multiplayer. [Jan 2008]

    Seems to have it all: funny characters, stylish graphics and superb production values. It's a shame, that it lacks the challenge and depth of other titles in the genre. Despite that, The Simpsons will certainly appeal to the younger players and make this a good gateway game. [Nov 2007]

    A forced remake. The gaming scene is so over saturated with the match three genre, Galactrix feels old right off the bat. Even though very clichéd, the proven core elements still works. [Apr 2009]

    Punch-Out!! shows how little games have really changed in a decade: Quick Time Events are still a trend. Luckily the game still has it old charm.

    Really needs one more difficulty level. Arcade is so easy that it gets boring really fast, at realistic planes feels too unstable to even aim straight. [Aug 2009]

    An atmospheric thriller marred by a constant need for repetition. Gunplay feels a bit tacked on. [Dec 2005]

    • 64 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    A quite decent FPS and certainly an improvement over the original. It's quite unoriginal, though, and the opening level is very dull, but it gets better after that. [June 2011]

    A pretty and very entertaining 2D RTS slash bemani game. There's nothing quite like it, unless you count earlier Patapons. A bit repetitive, though. [May 2011]

    A mishmash of simple text adventuring and lots of different minigames. Strangely, it kind of works, thanks largely to the interesting story. It's too easy and lacking in presentation, but a nice little space adventure nonetheless. [Aug 2012]

    Skylanders: Giants is pretty much the same stuff as last year. The new giants are fun, but are not nearly powerful enough to justify their price tag. Still decent fun, just without the flair of freshness the original had. [Dec 2012]

    A bit of an ambiguous case. On one hand it delivers pretty solid and fun rallying, but on the other hand it feels a bit disappointing because it could have been much better. Handling could have been improved to more extreme realism and the career mode could have been refined instead of dumbing it up. [Nov 2012]

    A stylish homage to old video games. It's just not particularly fun to play. What could have been a great game ends up just okay. [Dec 2012]

    F1 2013 is a pretty ambiguous package. On one hand it's the best lightweight F1 simulation ever, but on the other hand it feels like an another season update with overpriced DLC's and burden of current gen consoles. I think it really would benefit from updates like warmup laps and all the drama surrounding F1 circus. [Nov 2013]

    Völgarr the Viking is challenging, which is nice, but there are too few checkpoints. Repetition is never, ever fun. [Feb 2014]

    The latest GRID entry delivers decent and semi-realistic racing, but the game seems to suffer from lack of all-important polish. Monotonic career mode, blurred cockpits and pretty narrow race options (no rain?) are the biggest issues for me. [Aug 2014]

    • 60 Metascore

    The card game takes one step forward and two steps backwards. Free deckbuilding is a big plus, but when you consider that the play modes from old Duels are cut completely and some of the card pool available is behind an IAP paywall, the new Duels doesn't compare well against other, cheaper, slicker and - quite frankly - more fun competition like Hearthstone. Duels is simple not on par with the competition. [Sept 2014]

    An absolutely beautiful arcade racing game, but the inside doesn't do justice to its pretty shell. Although the career is repetitive the biggest game destroyer is pretty much the hideous AI, which is more from the Destructive Derby than from an enjoyable arcade title. [Nov 2014]

    • 76 Critic Score
    Not exactly a bad RPG but not a particularly good one, either. On the plus side, the story is OK and has a couple of interesting characters, but the overall atmosphere is bland and uninspired. [Apr. 05]

    A traditional roleplaying adventure with Megaman trimmings. [Jan. 05]

    A decent samurai and sword action game based on Tezuka Osamu's Dororo manga. It is a little bit repetitive and the dated gameplay is disappointing. A few fun monsters, though. [Apr. 05]

    A decent horror FPS that is let down by its poor control scheme. The PC version looks a bit dated, but sound is used well throughout. [Nov 2005]

    • 76 Critic Score
    Weird and funny. It suffers from clunky controls and PSP's small screen. The special missions are a nice addition, but overall thte game is too repetitive. [Aug 2006, p.53]

    The stylus controls are fine and everything works as it should. But there is a certain lack of charisma - that extra something that makes a good game great. [Feb 2007]

    The streamlined gameplay helps a little, but the game itself is too repetitive and simplistic. There is no real freedom, and the galaxy turns out to be beautiful but dull. [Sept 2006]

    Takes the tactical combat of Starfleet Command and turns it into action - of which there is not enough. It is not a truly bad Trek product, but the frustrating difficulty level and clumsy controls make playing too much of a chore. [Feb 2007]
