    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]

    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The pad controls are something of a compromise, but a good one for the most part. [Aug 2015, p.90]

    It does, on occasion, achieve brilliance. [May 2008, p.110]

    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]

    It's simple as hell. [Dec 2012, p.111]

    There's no extremely bloody climax as there was in ep one. [Apr 2015, p.94]

    Those plot threads need weaving together soon, lest our interest run out before winter arrives. [Aug 2015, p.90]

    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]

    • 56 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Equally frustrating and hilarious. [Nov 2014, p.89]

    • 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]

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

    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]

    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    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]
    • Playstation Official Magazine UK
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    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]

    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    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.
