    It simply can't get over the control drawbacks of Sony's handheld. [Issue#153, p.80]

    Our time on the Moon was fun, but not nearly as much as Pandora. [Issue#250, p.60]

    Just be sure you've got a book or PSP spare for those, frankly, unbearable loading times. [Issue#152, p.78]

    A classic 69. It's fun until you realise you're not getting enough out of it and that there are better games to play. Find something that allows for deeper penetration rather than the surface tickling provided by FlatOut 2. [Issue 142, p.86]

    A game of four quarters, fittingly: one fun, one uninspired, one interesting and one broken. [Issue#197, p.90]

    Whilst it's not what we imagined for the console, it's enough fun to justify its existence. [Issue # 149, p.64]

    Strikeforce serves as a refreshing direction for the series, one that will that will no doubt attract a few new fans. However, it can be unfairly punishing, so make sure you’ve got some mates to lend a hand.

    It's a shame that the main attraction - Doom 3 in HD with its add-ons - is (still) such a let-down. [Issue#225, p.79]

    If we had any choice we wouldn't have gone back. Add the loading times and this is best left well alone. [Apr 2006, p.97]

    While the game itself is perfectly sound, Brother in Arms: D-Day is let down by some seriously poor controls that see you constantly trying to fight against the PSP when it's really those pesky jerries you should be focusing on. [Issue # 149, p.78]

    If it wasn't for the improved gameplay additions, we'd say the first title was the better one. [Issue#181, p.82]

    There's lots of fun to be had with Homecourt. The problem is that it's sometimes so arbitrary you might as well watch footage of it rather than play it. [Issue #151, p.90]

    Due to a hit-and-miss control system and lack of personality, Rocky Balboa is more fumbling foal than Italian Stallion. [Issue #150, p.87]

    As a swan song to the PS2 Persona 4 isn’t the highest note and all the bizarre characters, storylines and Personas you unlock can’t change that. But if you don’t mind grinding too much then there is some enjoyment to be had.
