    Clever and beautiful in places, Puddle's just too wet behind the ears to know when its players need a break. [March 2012, p.107]

    Feels like a two-wheeled Dirt imitator without the polish. [May 2012, p.107]

    Outrageous special moves - Barrage of Lions, anyone? - will have anime fans squealing with glee. [Apr 2007, p.118]

    Gameplay is enjoyable but in a brief and shallow way. The longer you spend with it the less you get. There's a lack of imagination where this feels more about keeping you occupied than creating an interesting world filled with atmosphere. It lacks the variety and texture you really need keep things exciting.

    It's nowhere near sexy enough...Heetseeker just doesn't have the quality to deliver on its premise. [May 2007, p.111]

    There's enough gore-spillage here to satisfy that Japanese horror hardcore. [Apr 2013, p.109]

    All the depth of a "Saved by the Bell" special, but just as secretly satisfying. [June 2008, p.106]

    Controls-wise, the game is near-identical to "X-Men Legends." [Aug 2007, p.108]

    Like four boring cover-shooters layered together. Inventive firearms aside, there’s a crippling lack of ideas: the weapon interplay is mild fun, but it can’t elevate the bland whole.

    After a few hours the only thing keeping you coming back will be a furious determination to beat the sodding game, rather than actually approaching enjoyment. [Mar 2009, p.105]

    There's a pleasingly deep character creator to fiddle about with. [Apr 2013, p.118]

    The biggest complaint, as ever, is the controls: until the PSP grows a second analogue stick. shooters are going to feel clunky. [Dec 2007, p.112]

    However good this trilogy was, it feels odd bundling it together because the games are such incremental upgrades of one another.

    UEFA plays almost identically to "FIFA 07," but it has fewer teams, which makes it impossible to recommend over its fuller-featured predecessor. Or indeed the mighty "Pro Evo 6." [May 2007, p.93]
