    While the game's temple design is never quite as consistently expansive or ambitious as a Legend Of Zelda, Okami's art, sturdy combat and inventive noodle-teasers have aged as gracefully as Jeff Bridges distinguished chin fur.

    Unless you hate brown, gory toilets and machines that need power restoring via distant switches, make sure you drift off into Dead Space. [Dec 2008, p.104]

    But what's really special is how good Battlefield sounds. [Apr 2010, p.102]

    The only real letdown is that you're not really under any serious pressure - the threat of imminent death is an illusion. The spectacle is there: huge explosions, last-minute rescues and desperate stand-offs against impossible odds. But the enemy AI lacks aggression. [Sept 2007, p.100]

    At 11.99 this is an expensive slice of PSN, but the end result is so tasty you won't regret it. [Oct 2009, p.117]

    This is covered in Dookie - but most definitely not sh*t. [July 2010, p.111]

    Push through the early learning curve and you'll find an enjoyable blend of authenticity and gameplay that's perfect for anyone wanting to rank up their PlayStation soldiering. [May 2011, p.96]

    Some scenarios really capture the perverse freedoms of navigating an abandoned city. [July 2007, p.106]

    The core of the experience is the racing. [May 2011, p.100]

    When you've got a series that lets you transform foes into sheep and demands you save tourists from feral intergalactic squirrels, whinging over resolutions seems smaller than its dinky droid sidekick.
    • 80 Metascore

    The core gameplay is so well-balanced. [Mar 2008, p.103]

    Once you hit the sweet spots, it's the most satisfying ting on PSP. [May 2011, p.102]

    A surprising, raucous, lovingly updated loot-fest. [Aug 2013, p.93]
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Those who don't bother with the solo campaign won't miss much. Indeed, the online experience in its different incarnations is so addictive and gratifying that it's almost enough to let the balance and technical issues slip. But only almost.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The genius of Unit 13 is it doesn't try to take that glossy, cinematic action experience of a console shooter and give it to you on a handheld – instead, it takes all the best parts of mobile gaming and gives them to you in a shooter.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Although it's enjoyable from start to nearly finish, the game's 11-or-so-hour running time (told you it was fully-fledged) is about two hours too long. The last sections just recycle the same set-pieces and environments, dragging out the run-up to a conclusion that, although fitting, comes more as a relief than a busting great climax.

    This is right up there along side Trash Panic as the best the Store currently has to offer in the sub five quid range. [Oct 2009, p.121]

    There's no reason for it to take any risks, and it doesn't. [Nov 2009, p.112]

    For 30quid there's a ton of high-quality gameplay here. [May 2011, p.106]

    It’s an ancient evil residing in a new place, and the marriage of Blizzard’s defiantly old-school dungeon-crawling with its mesmerising craftsmanship works unquestionably. A deceptively simple and expertly constructed Beelzebub-basher, translated smartly for a platform not immediately receptive to the genre.

    A slow-burner that rewards dedication. [Oct 2007, p.100]

    After a decade of failures, all those extra lives Sonic's collected over the years have finally come to fruition. [Issue#51, p.119]

    A clever mix of real-time and turn-based battling keps combat fresh and there's real tactical depth. [Nov 2007, p.112]

    Unlimited? Not quite. Expansive But Ultimately Shallow would be better, but that probably wouldn't fit on the box. [Mar 2007]

    The combat's a bit bust but not a deal-breaker, and the characters are deep and likeable enough to make for good company for the 12 or so hours you'll spend with them. [Christmas 2008, p.84]

    An accessible, and crucially, fun scrapper. [May 2009, p.96]

    This is Capcom in fine and original fettle, with a gut-punch of a shooter that's guaranteed to thaw out your wintry fingers. [Mar 2008, p.104]
