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

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

    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]

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

    Among clumsy PS2 ports and tedious retro collections, it comes as a bracing gust of sea air. [Apr 2007, p.103]

    Repetition also puts a smear on the game's charm, turning initially ingenious tasks into a chore. [Feb 2013, p.117]

    Never Dead might be a scrappy mess in places – it's blighted by severe screen-tearing and dialogue so bad it makes the original Resi look like Citizen Kane. Yet it's a game about throwing a man around who's usually missing 75% of his torso, meaning it's impossible to be too scathing of its faults.

    Eden might be an acquired taste, but with its one-of-a-kind controls, creative art style and cracking multiplayer, it's definitely worth the hard work...and the 4.99 BP asking price. [Oct 2008, p.94]

    Yes, the game is in the middle of the series timeline, but the devs do themselves a disservice by drowning a rich experience in an ocean of complexity. [March 2014, p.92]

    Played with friends this is excellent fun full of teamwork and panic as you manage rather than defeat the undead. [Oct 2011, p.103]

    Not as confident as Telltale's selection of flagship franchises so far, but the ethos of the show is there in terms of tense confrontations and oh-so-tricky power games. [Feb 2015, p.90]
