    The longer you play it, too, the more enjoyment you'll get out of it, but only because you start to accept TDU2's many shortcomings and instead enjoy its endless possibilities. [Apr 2011, p.116]

    For the most part the game is either unwilling or unable to leave you stumped for long. [Oct 2015, p.94]

    It's a simple story: if you like tennis games, buy this. It's a brilliant, if unoriginal, on-the-go version of an already solid game. If you don't like tennis games… well, you might enjoy this anyway, providing you're not allergic to them like Andy Murray is to smiling.

    The tracking is also a bit off. [Dec 2010, p.99]

    This is a fairly immersive and rewarding experience, but more variety would help keep you hooked. The AI generated levels do make Cloudberry an interesting place, but the princess might have to wait a little longer than expected for you and Bob to get around to rescuing her.

    An excellent and unique strategy game. [July 2010, p.107]

    A slightly better version of Dead Island in everything but name. [Apr 2015, p.84]

    The visuals are mostly bright and clear, although the occasional piece of disappearing scenery and some issues with pop-up dampen the fun. [Oct 2007, p.97]

    Pleasantly distracting. [Dec 2012, p.111]

    The result's a game where, though the quality of the fighting is almost as good as the competition's, a whole load of tiny details make the finished product a bit of a mess. [Issue#51, p.114]

    Only minus the satisfying touch-screen interaction. [Apr 2011, p.118]

    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A rather lovely reminder of how satisfying a good old fashioned puzzle game can be without squeezing your brain dry of every drop of spurious logic. [Apr 2015, p.87]

    The Arrival is also incredibly short in length (you can be done in two hours if you're quick), but it's sinister, unnerving and full of scream-worthy jump scares while it lasts. [Dec 2014, p.94]

    Oddly immersive. [Christmas 2011, p.104]

    It takes a while for things to get stale though, and until then this is a surprisingly strong new entrant to the off-road scene. [Nov 2008, p.117]

    An undeniably great shooter, but don't expect a profound update from the original. [Apr 2015, p.87]

    It's not that deep, and it lacks the furious, deranged pack-racing of "Motorstorm," but it is very fast, looks gorgeous and handles ever so sweetly. [Nov 2007, p.92]

    There isn't a good enough reason to double-dip if you played the original, but if you haven't had the pleasure, we'd suggest you Triad it out. [Dec 2014, p.94]

    Feels like Rambo for poultry. [Christmas 2011, p.104]

    Periodically, a malicious doll-like girl appears to stress-test your sphincter.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An online experience of wildly fluctuating highs and lows that demands a lot but explains little. [Apr 2015, p.89]

    The pad controls are something of a compromise, but a good one for the most part. [Aug 2015, p.90]

    Lingering problems from the old PS3 games remain, but this is a return to form for the legendary spookster. [Apr 2015, p.92]

    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Solid fun, and enough to generate interest in the already-confirmed sequel, but little else. [Apr 2010, p.106]
