    Its action isn't really very good. [Nov 2009, p.124]

    UEFA plays almost identically to "FIFA 07," but it has fewer teams, which makes it impossible to recommend over its fuller-featured predecessor. Or indeed the mighty "Pro Evo 6." [May 2007, p.93]

    The undeniable charm of using automatic weaponry on magical monsters is just about enough to make it worth a look. [Christmas 2008, p.120]

    A worthy companion piece to the film - against all odds the stealth is actually fun. [Feb 2009, p.100]

    The whole package is, of course, fugly and cheap. But whether it's surprisingly enjoyable dogsledding sections or physics gaffes that often see dead animals inadvertently do the splits, I had a smile on my face throughout.

    Throwaway fun. [Christmas 2008, p.117]

    This can't contest Undisputed as an MMA game, nor the best fighters on beat-'em-up terms. Yet there's a place for it, simply 'cause no one has bridged the gap between these genres. So, who wants to step outside?

    Every action is coupled with a frustrating feeling of unpredictability in a game that really should deliver precision inputs for its harsh, stealthy goals. [Christmas 2014, p.85]

    I awarded the PS3 version 8/10 and while this is a marginally better game, the final product has to be considered a disappointment when weighted against its lofty expectations – and sphere-kicking stablemate, which has already set the bar high for PS4 sports sims.

    A packet of steak McCoy's next to Dark Souls II's ribeye. The action is handsome and combat can bite, yet with Bloodborne on the horizon, Lords is a bit of a hard sell. [Christmas 2014, p.86]

    But while it's easy to create races, playing them is another matter thanks to ruthless power ups that make racing a joyless messy chaos. Overall the experience is a mixed bag of good and evil. If you're creative juices flow freely at the thought of making beardy Gandalf drivers and courses that are Mordor-meets-Nürburgring, then lifespan is only limited by your imagination.

    Freedom Wars can't match the series it aims to ape, but this is almost as worth checking out for its bizarre, clever conceit as its satisfying, if shallow, combat mechanics. [Christmas 2014, p.87]

    Its biggest problem, though, is the competition that's already available on the store. [Oct 2009, p.123]

    Strives for, and achieves, nothing more than competence. [Christmas 2014, p.88]

    With a multiplayer option – which would alleviate the unpredictability of your companion when playing single player – and plenty of collectibles as well as stacks of puzzles, The Eternity Clock has a lot to offer but there are just too many frustrations to wholly recommend this.

    As long as you're not expecting anything more complex than the ancient side-scroller that inspired it, Bionic Commando offers plenty of fun. [June 2009, p.100]

    By far the biggest problem here is how Sonic himself handles. [July 2012, p.106]

    A Greatest Hits album that's more like a collection of vintage B-sides. [Sept 2009, p.110]

    If you can overlook the presentation problems, there’s a clever game of strategy here that just about makes this a war worth enlisting for.

    Nail'd isn't poor, but it manages to make predictable what should have been wild, mud-flecked insanity. [Feb 2011, p.112]

    Blame rapidly decaying attention spans if you want, but this won't hold your attention for long. [Aug 2007, p.103]
