    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.

    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]

    It's not bad, just basic. [Jan 2011, p.113]

    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]

    Outdated and in need of a serious overhaul. [Sept 2007, p.111]

    The choice of missions in the open world is disappointingly limited. [Aug 2011, p.110]

    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]

    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]

    A cheap and cheerful arcade shooter. [Sept 2009, p.112]

    This low-rent top-down alien blaster doesn't even seem to be trying. [Jan 2009, p.104]

    There's nothing substantial here beyond desperate button hammering. [Dec 2009, p.125]

    If this were a PS2 game, we'd still consider the graphics a bitter letdown. [Feb 2008, p.98]

    By far the game’s biggest problem: a crippling lack of invention. Riptide exhausts through repetition. Your flooded playground lacks the visual variety of the first game’s Banoi and missions never blossom into fresh concepts, merely escalating in difficulty and frustration.

    The gameplay is so repetitive and robotic. [May 2009, p.101]

    It's not as if previous game adaptations have set the bar high, but this manages to fall below even those minimal standards. [Jan 2010, p.116]

    Sadly, pretty looks and sweetly-edited shorts can't mask the lack of inspiration at its mechanical core. [Jan 2015, p.94]

    As a whole, this is a step back for the series and an insult to those who know that Vita and Gotham deserve more. This is not the Batman game that you need.

    A surefire way to induce nausea. [May 2012, p.107]

    Barge-like handing and joyless backgrounds. Pass. [Jan 2009, p.104]

    When your whole game is build around a mystifyingly unintuitive control mechanic, you're pretty much screwed from the outset. [Sept 2009, p.113]

    From the drab visuals to the limp presentation, it screams 'mediocre' like a moped on a steep hill. [Dec 2007, p.114]

    Playing as either character simply isn't much fun. [Jan 2008, p.114]
