    Armored Core V depicts fast-paced mech-warfare, where mech-building skills and tactical manoeuvres are as important as quick reflexes. [May 2012]

    Puzzle pictures are interesting to some extent, but for a full scale game they are just not enough. I'd also rather wonder where Wally is than search for Millionaire's lost socks with a flashlight. [Feb 2009]

    A creepy, slow-paced point ’n’ click adventure. The plot is fine, and so is the simple yet efficient user interface. The most annoying thing is a time-consuming mushroom hunt in a dark forest. The ending is not especially rewarding, either, but the realistic puzzles and the smooth gameplay make up for it quite nicely. [Dec 2006]

    The same old agricultural experience once again. Old means in this case comfortable, familiar and entertaining instead of boredom and repetition. If you love the series or have never tried any Harvest Moon game go get this and start farming asap. Others may be happier elsewhere. [Mar 2009]

    A decent, if uninspired fantasy RPG in the vein of the Elder Scrolls and Gothic series. Its biggest problem is the generic fantasy setting combined with general mediocrity. But in the end, it is fun to play, and there can never be too many RPGs like that. [Sept 2007]

    The Godfather 2 is a quite good, but too short GTA-style virtual criminal's sandbox. It doesn't look as impressive as "GTA IV", nor does it have as many things to do as "Saint's Row 2." [Mar 2009]

    A strangely captivating mix of real time strategy and light roleplaying. [Feb 2009]

    Normally Free 2 Play games don't force you to buy the game first. Awful matchmaking, without dedicated servers GCI will sink without a trace. Or players. [March 2012]

    A well-made action-adventure. Beautiful graphics, good gameplay and a bunch of fresh ideas offer pleasant times for adventurers. [Sept. 05]

    A linear and slightly boring shoot'em up, which does not tap into the main game's strengths. Why the heck did we get a small scale conflict as the climax, when there was this whole end of the world stuff readily available as a dramatic finale? [Mar 2009]

    Puts player in a rather awkward role. You essentially play a person who hasn’t made a single good decision in his life. When none of your actions hold any kind of moral high-ground the whole experience starts to feel like a total downer. While the story certainly has an impact, the actual gameplay does not. Shooting behind the cover has been done much better. The real let-down is the last third of the game which is simply not fun to play. [Dec 2007]

    • 71 Critic Score
    A mediocre, fast paced mecha action that pretty much targets the marginal audience really getting their kicks from tuning massive combat robots. For average player, clinical storytelling without drama and hooks, nonexistant tutorial to the world and the game, and especially to the overwhelmingly complex robot modification will quickly dull the interest. The core of the game in combat and in the garage is solid, but that’s sadly it. [Mar 2008]

    Afro Samurai plays it too cool. The game looks and sounds great, but everything is far, far too easy. Gameplay is just a one-button-smash and it’s practically impossible to actually die. It’s a shame, since the weird feudal Japan meets cyberpunk world is and interestingly funky place. [Apr 2009]

    Practically a Tekken Tag Tournament HD, since Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Prologue is just a small taster and Tekken: Blood Vengeance is a B-class computer animation. That's fine, since TTT is still alive and kicking. [Dec 2011]

    Fallout 3: Point Lookout and Mothership Zeta are Fallout 3's last two expansions and surprisingly from the opposite ends of the quality spectrum. Point Lookout is an enjoyable, well-made and immersive swamp adventure, whereas Mothership Zeta is boring as hell and plays like a crappy FPS. [Aug 2009]

    The WW2 arcade flying is unimaginative and thoroughly average. [Aug 2007]

    A very basic real-time strategy with AI issues. Although everything about it has been seen a million times before, the game is still pretty entertaining from time to time. [Jan. 05]

    A boring minigame stretched to full lenght boots. The idea should have been scrapped at the development table. [Sept 2011]

    Sword of the Stars II: Enhanced Edition is getting there, three steps forward and two steps back. But for gods sake, start creating enemies, not stupid names with some attributes! And hey, diplomacy between mighty star empires is not handled by SMS messages! [Feb 2013]

    Helldorado offers some good old challenge in a form of an puzzle game. Unfortunately the game runs in real time. In this case a turn based system would work much better. Altogether a nice piece of challenging puzzling, annoying even, at some points. If you aren't scared of the difficulty level, this is definitely your cup of whiskey. [July 2009]

    "Warrior Within" plus a few new levels. It looks cool, but playability is not the same it used to be. [Feb 2006]

    Excellent atmosphere and great characters straight from the fantastic movie. The game itself is an average 3D action-adventure. [Sept. 05]

    Yoshi's New Island is a fun, cute and a lot easier platformer than other recent Nintendo games. It's a perfect match for a platformer novice, but gives thrills to a veteran too, especially when used as a sedative between much harder games. [Apr 2014]

    Takes you back to the world of minigames. It seems like the best ideas are already used, though. Only the mic games are slightly refreshing. [Jan 2006]

    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]

    Aliens vs Predator on Xbox 360 is a huge disappointment. Shaky controls make marine campaign worst of the lot and predator has lost his cool gear, forcing him to focus too much on melee. Of the three only alien campaign is somewhat fun to play. And what happened to the visuals? Sub-par resolution and bad play-doh design make everything look murky and just plain bad. Thankfully the PC version is at least a bit better. [Mar 2010]

    A very pretty and in some parts surprising arcade racer. It takes a step or two towards the original Need for Speed and that's a good thing. There's one annoying problem, though. The stupidly expensive police cars are just, well, really stupid. [Dec 2011]

    Goes back to basics and melts your heart as easily as before. If only there were some depth and new ideas, Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness would be a true gem. [Nov 2005]

    A game that had it all, great design, excellent graphics. All it lacked was time. [Aug 2006, p.36]

    Another Sonic Collection. "Mega Collection Plus" was good value, but this one is a disappointment. Why were not these included on the Mega Collection? Sonic CD is a nice Sonic game, though. [Nov 2005]
