    This never quite gets free of its cell of mediocrity. [Apr 2012, p.118]

    Sorry, Sam old buddy, but its time we dropped you off at the great retirement castle in the sky. [Nov 2011, p.112]

    It's painstaking but satisfying. [June 2009, p.103]

    Sadly the repetitiveness of the gameplay, despite team attacks and unlockable special moves, gets tiring long before the charms of the world. And so, ironically, Luffy just doesn't quite have the legs

    Mostly good news. [Mar 2010, p.103]

    Involving if arthritic, boring yet fleetingly brilliant, Carnivores’ cerebral shooting is genuinely unique in spite of its miserly unlocks.

    It's essentially an adorably reskinned version of Flash browser game Bubble Trouble, but it's fun nonetheless. [March 2013, p.117]

    It's fun, but only in the same way wanging around plastic trucks was back when you wore Bananaman pyjamas. [Apr 2012, p.118]

    This feels an awful lot like the Hollywood blockbusters it's trying to out-kaboom - look past the pyrotechnics, and you'll see Full Auto 2 hasn't got a lot of soul. [Apr 2007, p.116]

    It's on to combat and back into the repetitive rut that the series has ploughed for the last decade. [May 2007, p.114]

    Eufloria’s humble indie roots can be seen in the crude visual design.

    If you're wondering why pilots don't use tilt sensitive joypads, just try the woeful Sixaxis option. [May 2007, p.120]

    Making your men do what you want, when you want, is still clumsy and imprecise. [Apr 2009, p.101]

    Assuming you can patch it and it works, what you've got here is a basic shooter that, when it remembers what it is, can be fun, and when it forgets, goes mad.

    It's funny, but it's not quite fun. [June 2009, p.99]

    If it was actually a budget game, rather than just feeling like one, it would be more strongly recommended. [July 2011, p.100]

    Silent Hill fans will appreciate the atmosphere, but it's bogged down in old-fashioned gameplay that just doesn't cut it. Sadly, we grew up. Equally sadly, Silent Hill never did.

    The real problem, however, is that these are not the kind of games that should be remade in hi-def. With titles such as Shadow Of The Colossus or Metal Gear Solid 3, it figures: these are unique experiences that no game since has been able to recreate, outdo or even capture the spirit of. Devil May Cry was lauded at the time, but the games simply aren't classics in that same bracket.

    Mindless fun. [Christmas 2010]

    It is, very much, a game of two halves. The production values are low – like kicking a three-legged kitten low – but the combat system is a crazy, unique joy. If someone, er, liberally 'borrowed' it in a title with a triple-A budget we could be looking at something really special.

    ProStreet bursts onto the stage dropping frames like a drunken juggler. [Christmas 2007, p.90]

    A game so retro it feels like the illegitimate offspring of early Castlevania and Final Fantasy titles. [June 2011, p.109]

    A poor, watered-down substitute that even the most devoted space junkie can afford to skip. [June 2011, p.110]

    A game that forgets its key strengths, builds on its weaknesses and throws in a novelty first-person mode that you'll play for ten minutes. [Feb 2008, p.88]

    To be fair, SBK-08 feels built down to a [stringent] price rather than unloved or uninspired. [Oct 2008, p.105]

    Likeable at times, but the lack of variety will have you reaching for the bottle long before the end. [Feb 2010, p.115]
