    Not terrible, but it's pretty boring and short. [Issue#188, p.83]

    The real-time mechanic just descends into button hammering. [Issue#158, p.94]

    The core gameplay is merely basic, but why doesn't Tecmo Koei take some chances with the DW offshoots? [Issue#208, p.94]

    And 1 Streetball needed a good scrub and some basic gameplay lessons but was too busy busting rhymes and freestyling to care about the little things. [Issue 142, p.99]

    You'll notice this number is higher than that we gave WWE 12 (50%), even though we complain about a barely-evolved sequel here. Well, the power of nostalgia and the strength of the Attitude era combine nicely. Other than that? This is a pointless game.

    Dull, ugly, and completely lacking in charm; only a glutton for punishment would enjoy Commandos Strike force. [Apr 2006, p.86]

    While it doesn't to a lot wrong, Made Man's inability to do anything right leaves a drab and boring experience that, given the abundance of vastly superior alternatives, is best avoided by all but the most undemanding fans. [Issue#146, p.96]

    It recreates the tabletop D&D experience, but ultimately Tactics just doesn't works as a videogame. D&D fans may get some enjoyment out of it, but the bland environments and animations do little to bring the rich world of D&D to life. [Issue#159, p.96]

    It's messy, and it gets repetitive too. For some, it'll just be headache-inducing. But for those who yearn for quirkiness, this could become a cult hit. [Issue#229, p.82]

    SOCOM Confrontation might have been fun about five years ago, but it’s starting to feel very tired these days. Online shooters need to offer either unprecedented depth or a wealth of personality and skill to stand out. But this does neither.

    It’s so well-presented that you’ll want to like it, but there’s no disguising the fact that this is one of the most annoying games ever made. It’s impossible to find printable words to describe how much it upset us.

    Besides gimmicks, the core Frogger gameplay is untouched and thus lacks compelling high-score chases. [Issue#221, p.79]

    While initially there seems to be quite a lot of fun to be had with Web Of Shadows, ultimately you discover its fluid combat and intriguing story quickly become overshadowed by a web of lazy missions.

    Forgettable at best and a massive step backwards for a series that recently impressed so much. [Issue#219, p.70]
