    You'll have had enough of the quirky humour in roughly 90 seconds. [July 2012, p.115]

    Often it simply feels like too much work for a single player, as you're constantly bombarded with conflicting tasks.

    Doom 3: BFG Edition has its darkly atmospheric highlights. But a generous amount of content can't salvage a package that's decidedly dated. If you want a cracking Id shooter, buy Rage on PS3 for about a tenner, because this is one mission to Mars you're better off skipping.

    Looks lovely, but it offers few thrills. [June 2009, p.102]

    Just to add insult to injury, Inferno Pool started out as an iPhone app - costing a paltry 59p. Boo. [July 2009, p.97]

    The lack of multiplayer is baffling. [July 2014, p.80]

    If you’re looking for a satisfying sneaky experience, then last year’s Sniper Elite delivers far more than Ghost Warrior 2, which is already destined to be filler for the pre-owned shelves at your local retailer. The odd joyful kill can’t make up for its appalling visuals, and this frustratingly hollow experience misses its target entirely.

    Half-arsed superhero rubbish. [Christmas 2008, p.119]

    This isn't an offensively bad game, merely a game with no purpose. [Sept 2012, p.115]

    Brain-munchingly dull. [Aug 2012, p.111]

    A ham-fisted cover shooter with sloppy controls and dully weaponry (read: spells). [Sept 2011, p.116]

    Poorly thought out and ultimately frustrating. [Oct 2007, p.108]

    Little more than an unfortunate blip on the gaming radar. [Sept 2011, p.116]

    Like olden days Command & Conquer. Only minus the combat, the war, and the fun. [Sept 2011, p.116]

    The on-foot sections provide passable, brain-numbing fun and fighting fans will enjoy collecting new combos and going up against familiar end-of-level bosses. But if you're expecting anything new or intellectually stimulating you're in for a bumpy ride. [Mar 2007, p.115]

    It's essentially a third-person hack 'n' slash with an RPG film laid over the top.

    By no means a disaster, but it captures none of the majestic, mechaphiliac idiocy of the movies. [Sept 2011, p.117]

    Never has mass slaughter felt so pedestrian. [May 2011, p.103]

    The combat system is leaden. [Aug 2007, p.114]

    Misjudged difficulty and cumbersome controls. [Aug 2012, p.115]

    It's cheesily charming in its own way, but this is one of PS3's most low-rent titles. [Dec 2011, p.91]

    As far as being an actioner that's worthy of your time, this is not up to the standard we'd expect. In fact, it's nowhere Nier. [June 2010, p.105]

    It's a solid enough bit of brain training, but there's nothing new here, nor anything more fun than a face full of yellow snow. [May 2011, p.113]
