    A bit inconsistent. [Apr 2012, p.115]

    Somewhat dull resource management. [Nov 2012, p.117]

    For all its easy-going accessibility, it doesn't play anything like a realistic game of rugby, so those looking for authenticity should kick this one into touch. [Sept 2007, p.106]
    • Playstation Official Magazine UK
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Nauseatingly basic. [March 2013, p.114]

    Might lack depth, but it certainly isn't short of fire power. [July 2011, p.91]

    It's a bit dull, sure, but there's also something oddly soothing about it. [March 2013, p.117]

    Give me the option of a night in with the first season's Blu-ray boxset or this mostly shabby spin-off and I'd go HD Sean Bean chivalry every time.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Laborious menus. [July 2011, p.95]
    • Playstation Official Magazine UK
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Not good enough to be set free, not bad enough to be tossed to the lions. [July 2011, p.95]

    • 58 Metascore

    The frame rate is embarrassing. [Christmas 2010]
    • Playstation Official Magazine UK
    • 60 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A control scheme and camera that are aggressively opposed to you actually achieving any success or pleasure. [Christmas 2009, p.116]

    It's the repetition that grinds you down. Boss battles provide brief breaks in the monotony, but they're just the seeping gizzard of consolation inside a disappointing, fleshy haystack.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    An opportunity missed. [Christmas 2010]

    All in all, this isn't a good month for life on Mars. [July 2011, p.103]

    In a game as average as this humour is the X-factor. For some, Deadpool elevates it; for others, he renders it nigh-on unplayable. I call it nearer the latter and – for the sake of your taste – hope you do, too. Like the main man himself, this is utterly chaotic: funny, fun, rubbish, forgettable. Sadly, the hit rate of that first attribute is too poor to save it.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A staccato, trick-land-trick-land experience. [Christmas 2008, p.118]

    The first half hour of this stat-heavy RPG is as incomprehensible as Mission: Impossible in Turkish. [June 2011, p.111]

    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It's not bad, just basic. [Jan 2011, p.113]

    • 76 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Looks awesome in a retro, scattering-of-bright-pixels way, but playing is like trying to perform keyhole surgery after a unicorn has barfed glitter straight into your eyes. [June 2011, p.111]

    This has its moments but it’s barely worth the patience needed to find them. Or anything else. If you want a Metroidvania experience on Vita then get the excellent Guacamelee instead.

    What excitement there is gets suffocated by the inert tracks. [Aug 2011, p.107]
    • Playstation Official Magazine UK
    • 63 Metascore

    Outdated and in need of a serious overhaul. [Sept 2007, p.111]
    • Playstation Official Magazine UK
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The choice of missions in the open world is disappointingly limited. [Aug 2011, p.110]

    • 50 Critic Score
    As ever with camera-based games, haphazard detection and rudimentary interaction limit the laughs. [March 2015, p.93]

    It fatally crosses the streams after only a short amount of time. [June 2011, p.112]

    Occasionally fun. [Aug 2011, p.110]

    Avoid. [July 2010, p.118]

    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A complex game for strategy buffs, but tiresome and inaccessible for others. [Christmas 2010]

    There's no reason to choose it over the tabletop version. [Jan 2011, p.121]

    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A cheap and cheerful arcade shooter. [Sept 2009, p.112]
