    There's too much repetition, too little excitement, and it all feels like it's been done before. [Feb 2010, p.104]

    • 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]

    Street only fails to score higher because of its Gamebreaker feature. Activated after you've nailed enough big hits, it virtually guarantees you'll score a touchdown or nab an interception. [Apr 2007, p.118]

    There's enough tactical depth. [Aug 2015, p.92]

    Uniquely, irresistibly charming. [Dec 2012, p.114]

    The only game I've ever reviewed that I've awarded an extra point for having a nice soundtrack. [Christmas 2011, p.105]

    It's just a pity Fetch doesn't break from Second Son's tired mission design a little more. [Nov 2014, p.91]

    Very difficult to complete. [Christmas 2011, p.105]

    Counterspy's scrappiness makes anything beyond [a few hours of fun] rather dicey. [Nov 2014, p.90]

    There's little reason to buy Ultra Street Fighter IV if you have any version of Street Fighter IV on PS3, but post-patch it remains great despite a rather crusty conversion. [Apr 2015, p.95]

    Do Not Fall is a game of constant death & gnawing tension, rather than enjoyment. A very well put together platformer; it just utterly barbecues your nerves.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Only cumbersome controls steer[] this shy of a more eufloric score. [Christmas 2011, p.109]
    • Playstation Official Magazine UK
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Deep and playable enough to make it work. [Feb 2009, p.97]

    It's inventive and engrossing - and almost ridiculously cheap. [Feb 2010, p.115]

    Despite some irritating moments, Legasista does possess some cool play concepts. [Nov 2012, p.87]

    Despite the odd frustration, Epic Mickey 2 is a brave platformer. It's intelligent, full of humour and, in typical Disney style, the cut-scenes are musical. Like the theme parks, environments are rich, and characters are OTT and full of enthusiasm. It's an enjoyable journey through the past century of Disney, and despite the pitfalls there are some beautifully created levels and moments of pure magic.

    Hardcore hockey fans with plenty of patience will reap big rewards from 2K8, but if it's an easy way in you're after, stick with EA's superior "NHL 08." [Dec 2007, p.114]

    Does a tidy job of recreating familiar sideshow attractions. [Christmas 2011, p.109]

    A worthy partner to the PS3 version. [Jan 2009, p.98]

    The interactivity is erratic, but it's got enough personality to justify the purchase if you have kids. [Christmas 2011, p.111]

    Artistically it's a bit gaudy. [Feb 2014, p.87]
    • Playstation Official Magazine UK
    • 67 Metascore

    Unapologetically haphazard. [Mar 2009, p.88]

    There's a huge selection of activities. [Christmas 2011, p.111]

    This straddles the generation gap rather awkwardly. [Feb 2014, p.90]

    These updates aside, it's hard to ignore the spectacularly half-arsed mentality on show, despite the budget price tag. [Christmas 2011, p.111]

    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    This is a game that seeks to find the good in you, so why not return the favour? [Feb 2014, p.93]

    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Where this version loses out to its bigger bro is that the zoomed-in perspective feels claustrophobic by comparison. [Mar 2009, p.94]

    Captures almost all the charm of its full-sized counterpart. [Christmas 2010]

    Thankfully Sixaxis control can be turned off. [May 2007, p.113]

    This solid scrapper is let down by jagged edges around each character, vexing loading times and poor sound quality. [Christmas 2011, p.115]
