    Dumb, violent and pretty dull, this is an old-fashioned back 'n'-slash, with a few odd additions, but not one worth shoulding about. [Issue#161, p.84]

    Looks pretty good and re-creates the television show very well, but it’s a boring, repetitive, nonsensical television show. Plus, even hardcore Dragon Ball fans will be disappointed at the rather measly quantity of content.

    An annoying little game that plays just well enough for us to nearly forgive the ridiculousness of it. [Issue#139, p.93]

    Stunning to look at, but the experience within its gorgeously rendered environments ultimately lacks substance. [Issue#230, p.76]

    It's often repetitive, it's customisation mechanic feels tacked on, and it takes a good few hours to come out of its shell, but nail'd eventually emerges as a fun racer. [Issue#201, p.95]

    The impossible puzzles to the Loading Gates destroy the enjoyment and leave you feeling more than a tad frustrated. [Issue 143, p.90]

    As a reinterpretation of the existing Dead Rising 2 story, Off The Record fails on every level. [Issue#211, p.82]

    It’s a great-looking game, thick with atmosphere and brilliant music. Sadly, someone forgot to show as much care to the gameplay, so only fans of the comics and TV series are likely to finish the adventure with much satisfaction.

    Fun in short bursts and sometimes exhilarating to navigate the city, but The Amazing Spider-Man is still washed down the spout by the fact that it's dull. [Issue#221, p.74]

    A near miss in so many regards, Remember Me's lack of ambition is what ultimately hobbles it - with the balls to go bigger on some of its more original concepts, this could have been something truly special. [Issue#232, p.68]

    The plot is compelling, the visual style is gorgeous, but the combat can't hold up its end of the bargain and sustain excitement. [Issue#219, p.80]

    Spectacular production values help to make this game enjoyable in the early going, but it soon enough shows that it is painfully lacking in terms of maps and depth in its current form. [Issue#265, p.72]
