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

    • 70 Critic Score
    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]
    • Playstation Official Magazine UK
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    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]

    Strike City, challenge over. [Christmas 2010]

    An innovative strategy game. [May 2010, p.109]

    Whimsically presented. [Dec 2012, p.111]

    Only minus the satisfying touch-screen interaction. [Apr 2011, p.118]
    • Playstation Official Magazine UK
    • 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]
    • Playstation Official Magazine UK
    • 48 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    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]
    • Playstation Official Magazine UK
    • 59 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Oddly immersive. [Christmas 2011, p.104]

    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    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]
    • Playstation Official Magazine UK
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    An undeniably great shooter, but don't expect a profound update from the original. [Apr 2015, p.87]
    • Playstation Official Magazine UK
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    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]
    • Playstation Official Magazine UK
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    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]
    • Playstation Official Magazine UK
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Feels like Rambo for poultry. [Christmas 2011, p.104]

    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    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]
    • Playstation Official Magazine UK
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It does, on occasion, achieve brilliance. [May 2008, p.110]
    • Playstation Official Magazine UK
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Lingering problems from the old PS3 games remain, but this is a return to form for the legendary spookster. [Apr 2015, p.92]
    • Playstation Official Magazine UK
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Solid fun, and enough to generate interest in the already-confirmed sequel, but little else. [Apr 2010, p.106]
    • Playstation Official Magazine UK
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's simple as hell. [Dec 2012, p.111]

    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There's no extremely bloody climax as there was in ep one. [Apr 2015, p.94]
    • Playstation Official Magazine UK
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Taking a similar approach to Heavy Rain's storytelling-with-a-controller, Asura's Wrath is a brave, unique and beautiful interactive animation that's simply a bit light on gameplay. Unlike Quantic Dream's game, your mistakes have little consequence and you're not offered decisions about Asura's destiny. If you were, he could have ascended even higher.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The fresh concept gives a shot in the arm to one of the stalest genres around. [Christmas 2010]
    • Playstation Official Magazine UK
    • 56 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Equally frustrating and hilarious. [Nov 2014, p.89]
    • Playstation Official Magazine UK
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There's too much repetition, too little excitement, and it all feels like it's been done before. [Feb 2010, p.104]
    • Playstation Official Magazine UK
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Controls are awkwardly mapped and the music is unbearably repetitive, but exploration is rewarded and the mechanic is neat enough to keep you playing. [Christmas 2011, p.104]
