    A respectable take on the Gundam metaseries that's sure to please the faithful. Not particularly approachable for anybody else though. [September 2014, p80]

    It's still no Monster Hunter, but it's good enough to attract and retain a few new slayers. [June 2015, p79]

    There's definitely fun to be had here for the F1 faithful, but we can't shake the feeling that Codies is taking the foot off in preparation for the inevitable next-gen follow-up. [December 2013, p79]

    A stellar addition to any local social gathering. Decent competitive online components, too. [December 2013, p83]

    A visual feast that won't sate you if you if you're a sim-leaning soloist. Offers social, arcade fun in spades, however. [December 2014, p68]

    Utterly unique and reasonably enhanced since the last outing. This is still to die for. [December 2014, p77]

    EDF fans may “BFD” but it's beaut for bug blatters of a strategic bent. [Feb 2015, p79]

    If you’re a fan of the franchise you’ll be getting this for new challengers Jacky Bryant, Rachel, Momiji, Leon and Ein. The Power Launcher move is about the only new mechanic addition. It looks hilarious, won’t rock worlds. [November 2013, p85]

    Alone in the Dark and Sin City collide to shine a light for imperfect (yet mesmerising) adventuring. [May 2015, p79]

    Like a new wrestler getting a push, the fans will determine if 2K’s series succeeds or fails. [January 2015, p86]

    Infinity Ward has taken its foot off the accelerator here. The marketing department might as well have called it Call of Duty: Coasts. [Christmas 2013, p68]

    A deja vu update of last year's Don Bradman 14. Minimal graphics tweaks and not much else. [May 2015, p81]

    The main reason you will enjoy it is because the twin analogue stick controls are as simple as they are rewarding and each tackle is a cacophony of limbs that is extremely visceral. [July 2010 p73]

    Two games deep and two systems later, the grappling simply still isn’t as much fun as slugging it out, especially for those who have a more casual interest in MMA. [June 2016, p75]

    Less about providing an expansive footballing buffet of content and more about being authentic Cup paraphernalia, it features no club leagues but instead focuses on guiding one’s preferred international squad through qualification to a virtual World Cup Final. [June 2010 p76]

    Doesn't push beat 'em ups forward with meaningful mechanical advancements. Worth a bash, though. [October 2014, p77]

    It’s a world that feels remote, hostile and bloody mysterious, and you’ll want to persist in order to unthaw its buried secrets. [June 2016, p78]

    An easyish “yes” to fans of the first. A total “no” to newbs. [October 2014, p80]

    What LEGO Harry Potter is, then, is most probably exactly what you're expecting. A robust yet simple homage to an international phenomenon unleashed upon the world via the medium of coloured, plastic bricks. It's not going to give your PS3 an aneurysm, but it may cause children to spontaneously combust in excitement. [August 2010 p75]

    A gorgeous explore 'n' experiment experience. Can be too directionless which can harsh one's buzz. [October 2014, p83]

    A jazzy, jiving b-ball package, but too similar to 2K8. [Christmas 2008, p.82]

    And on that bombshell, may the next fledgling Final Fantasy fly fans to a realm that values a clear plot and strong characters over pinball machines. [February 2016, p74]

    So while you'll be unconvinced by the visuals and voices behind the boy and his beast, when the Majin goes harumphing into battle to save you from the latest onslaught of sinister humanoid ooze, stopping only to breathe his healing gingivitis all over your battered body, you'll find yourself wondering; why this has done for you what the massive production of Enslaved could not. The answer? Heart, baby. Kid's got heart. [January 2011 p72]

    A proper, faithful blast, and it's much better than its release as a stopgap between seasons of the anime might suggest. Who says licensed games suck? [November 2016, p66]

    How long that buzz takes to wear off is down to how much respect for ASCII games you really have. [November 2016, p67]
