    FIFA 08 is a workmanlike effort from EA. [Dec 2007, p. 98]

    Three-player online means co-operative carnage and the chance to torture yourself with high-score whoring leader boards. [Aug 2008, p.104]

    The novelty is short-lived, but in terms of tactics and squad-building it's nearly organised and surprisingly playable. [Nov 2009, p.135]

    Bugs really throw Unity under the guillotine. [Jan 2015, p.78]

    The shooting just happens to be glorious so you end up shooting until you realise you haven’t done anything that resembles ‘skill’ in around 50 levels, and you’ll go loopy. EDF 2025 is proof it’s possible to have too much of a good thing.

    Although visually slick, the cars feel slow. [Christmas 2010]

    It's a starting block, but while it's not made of dirt, it's a way off gold. [Christmas 2015, p.95]

    It does get repetitive after a while, but there's funny dialogue, simple yet effective mechanics, and 'copter unlocks to keep you hooked. [March 2012, p.95]

    Worth checking out both as a PlayStation, and gaming, fan if you want to see an evolutionary step on the way to where we are today.

    Why would anyone make a game with not one but two sets of crippled controls? [Aug 2008, p.102]

    The added HD treatment is a bit of a disappointment though. [Jan 2011, p.118]

    Formula One is far from terrible, but it simply can't compete with the balls-out brilliance of "Motorstorm." [May 2007, p.88]

    The combat's big and forceful, but you can only shoot dudes for so long when you know that your reward will just be more dudes to shoot. [June 2010, p.118]

    Sadly, though, there's an irritating delay when dealing attacks, and when you're trying to compensate for that in a retina-melting arena environment while three tiny blurs of furious colour attack you in unison, it's all too easy to lose track of who or where you are, let alone whether you nailed the previous three button-presses of your desired combo.

    Buy it and it'll keep you amused for an hour every few weeks. [Jan 2011, p.118]

    No amount of sharp gunplay can redeem Haze's cilched script and patchy execution. [July 2008, p.90]

    If you're fully under Potter's spell, though, a few dodgy viewpoints won't ruin the magic. [Sept 2007, p.116]

    A shameful and hybrid beast, but one you might just want to tame. [Aug 2011, p.112]

    Not as experimental as it wants to be, as Far Cry recycling hampers its endearingly silly premise. Primal finds itself stuck in the past in more ways than one. [Apr 2016, p.85]

    The problem is that, even at its best, it's an 11-year-old best. [Aug 2011, p.114]

    You never feel dangerous, and no amount of mangled urban concrete can make up for fundamentally hobbled weapons. [Apr 2008, p.98]

    It's sure to put a big smile on your face, but doesn't entirely satisfy as a puzzler. [Apr 2016, p.89]

    For all its booms and bangs, Just Cause 3 is never quite the unrestrained fun-maker it threatens to be. Whenever Rodriguez dons his wingsuit, however, it positively soars. [Jan 2016, p.88]
