    Sometimes you'll want to hit yourself hard in the head with your controller, jus to break up the monotony. [Christmas 2011, p.105]

    There's some mild appeal. [Christmas 2010]

    Given that fans of the movie have surely long-since moved on, there is simply no reason for this game to exist. [May 2007, p.120]

    There's an element of novelty in the first few minutes of play, but it doesn't last long. It isn't even the sketchy gameplay that sinks this Battleship – it's the abhorrently commercial objective apparent in every second of rushed gameplay. There's no artistic vision here, and the original idea at its core hasn't been given the time and love needed to build a coherent or enjoyable game.

    If the tracking listing consisted of Lady Gaga and Crystal Castles, twiddling a little arrow around and hitting the face buttons might be more satisfying. [Sept 2010, p.117]

    A good narrative could have saved Saint Seiya from bargain bin oblivion. [Feb 2014, p.94]

    Fleeting moments of fun and an improved Escalation mode aren't enough to save Spark from becoming yet another bland tie-in destined for the bargain bin base. [Sept 2014, p.106]

    Among the rubble there are elements of what could be a good game, but it's not worth your time to excavate them. Technically disastrous, it lets down its own story. [Sept 2014, p.111]

    But MLB 09 instead. Now. [June 2009, p.96]

    Trouble is, whichever character you pick, the game ends up largely the same. [Nov 2007, p.112]

    It's ambitious, but everything in it suffers from some hideous defect, like a garden centre in the middle of Chernobyl. [Oct 2012, p.110]

    A fairly significant disaster. [July 2009, p.92]

    Everything's been needlessly fiddled with so that it no longer makes sense. [March 2007, p.120]

    The quests are grinding, the dialogue linear, and the loot at lower levels decidedly 'meh.' [Oct 2012, p.117]

    Buy this to guarantee a ruck...with your own sanity. [Nov 2012, p.97]

    Essentially an account simulator (woo!) punctuated by the odd cannon-on-cannon scuffle. [Nov 2012, p.105]

    It's so ugly that your Vita will likely look embarrassed at having to play it. [Apr 2012, p.115]

    The game constantly makes you look a titanic fool, but matching the rhythm of the Move's rumble to your gestures for extra speed is oddly satisfying. [Nov 2011, p.109]

    Rather than doing anything very clever, it just nicks some of the best lines from the films, reminds you of the bits you liked, and carries on quietly being an incredibly average platform scrapper. [Sept 2007, p.117]

    A cynical grab for gullible gamer Christmas cash made to coincide with Vita's first festive period, this COD shouldn't just be declassified; it should be erased from existence.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Lacking the immediacy and fun of Killzone Liberation, this feels criminally outdated. [Christmas 2007, p.109]
