    Despite its presentational flaws – the script is married to some deeply underwhelming visuals – and lack of true inspiration, solid implementation of both the basic mechanics and the wannabe game-changer mean it floats our boat, even if we're not flipping out.

    Draws out deserved enthusiasm from you through its first half, followed by increasing frustration as the wheels start to fall off the wagon. [Sept 2015, p.94]

    That no significant improvements have been made in five years is surely the final proof that Medal of Honor's PlayStation campaign has lost its way. [May 2007, p.92]

    Maybe the linear route was cheaper, but the lesson is if you want to go to Mars, don't do it on a budget. [July 2011, p.90]

    For anyone already ingrained in the series, the opportunity to build your own team and take them online will be irresistible. But truthfully, for the uninitiated, there simply isn’t enough here to satisfy those of us desensitised by the bombast of bigger budget western games. Deliberately low on story but high on detail, Verdict Day is one for the (armored) hardcore.

    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

    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]

    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]
