    It's so obviously a "Micro Machines" rip off that it's just insulting. [Issue 144, p.92]

    Fails miserably. [Issue#186, p.87]

    Fuel is just too ugly, unpolished and lacking in focus to have any impact on the genre, crossing the finish line on just the wrong side of average.
    • 60 Metascore

    Feels more like an expansion than a genuine innovation. [Issue#207, p.92]

    No Mercy's biggest failing though is its atrocious netcode that makes playing games a nightmare. [Issue#182, p.83]

    • 56 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    Inversion flirts with the idea of having ideas, but then gives up all pretence of inventiveness and settles for being a bland and forgettable third-person shooter. [Issue#220, p.80]

    Boogie will probably hold appeal for any young aspiring X Factor winner that's currently running his bike ragged to buy a PS3. [Issue#161, p.99]

    Not the worst sports game ever made, and capable of producing some enjoyment in multiplayer mode. But it won't last, will get annoying, and you will get very bored. [Issue#209, p.94]

    It's dull, dull, dull and chockablock with the blandest levels and flick-the-right-switch challenges. [Issue 141, p.96]

    The only truly decent thing in the game is the music, and the fact that it's undeniably cool to explore the sets from the trilogy. [Issue#154, p.68]

    A clunky, confused mess of a game that simply doesn't know what it wants to be. There's comfort in how compulsive it can be, but that factor doesn't magically turn Dragon's Dogma into anything other than a flawed, dull and unfair experience. [Issue#218, p.76]

    Lack of replayability. [Issue#185, p.87]

    Released for free, this would have been an interesting experiment – if still backed up with a boring, chugging racing game. As it stands it's the latter point mixed in with a £20-shaped slap in the face. Absolutely pointless.

    Despite the fact that this entry does make some genuine improvements, it fails to innovate enough to save the series. [Issue#252, p.66]

    Does a good job of encapsulating the unique feel of Japanese horror, but only the most dedicated fans of the genre will persevere through the excessive description and dull mechanics in order to unlock every ending here. [Issue#229, p.83]

    With Quantum Theory and Dark Void, Airtight has proven that it’s capable of creating interesting worlds with inventive mechanics, yet little of this is apparent in Murdered: Soul Suspect, a game that fails to develop its ideas beyond the very basics.

    This is far from the return to form many have expected, and we now see why Sega was so keen to keep its new take on Sonic’s character a secret. Despite some promising moments, Sonic Unleashed collapses under the weight of its flaws.

    It's short, dull and looks awful. Avoid. [Issue#184, p.72]

    As DLC for FIFA 12 this would be slightly more palatable, but as a full scale release it's not up to scratch. [Issue#217, p.78]

    As much as we enjoyed Dead Space and look forward to its sequel, this really is a poor effort from Sumo Digital and Visceral Games. [Issue#199, p.103]
