    Whether you find its t&a-heavy stylings cheap or charming, the unique combat and constantly entertaining animations are almost enough to elevate it into the realms of the genre's giants. At present though, without an on-screen moves list it's too fiddly to put the hours of training into – which is frustrating, because you will want to put those hours in.

    Fast, fluid movement, pin-sharp aiming and the endless cool of a rechargeable slo-mo function are on your side. [Sept 2011, p.114]

    Living up to its developer's name, this puzzler is double fine value at £9.99. Just be warned that its own see-saw of fun counterbalances every five belly laughs with a mildly exasperating headache.

    The real-time battles open the game's appeal up beyond the hard-nosed RPG fan. [Sept 2007, p.112]

    Like one of nature’s colossal ice cubes trying to crash poor Leo and Kate’s trip, Revelations sadly hits a stumbling block. In one key area, the action has unforgivably regressed from 2005’s Resi 4. Specifically, enemies now barely react to your bullets.

    What Saints Row: The Third is made for though, and where it really excels, is just messing around to your heart's content. Okay, perhaps not your heart – maybe the heart of some homicidal lunatic with a fetish for molluscs. Because from the Octopus Launcher to the Manapault (a car that lets you hoover up and then fire out pedestrians) to the Apoca-fists (which turn anyone you punch into instant man-paste) no game has ever given you such an eclectic toolbox to toy with.

    As a solid, enjoyable aerial Mario Kart alternative, this is a pleasant surprise, especially if you're someone who finds Simlish consistently hilarious. [Issue#51, p.109]
