    Weaponry is dull and so are the contests - a mix of base capturing and amassing kills. Avoid like a landmine. [May 2007, p.120]

    The stylistic, themed pieces (aquatic, chaos, etc.) all look the same unless you squint, and the lacklustre animations have no purpose other than slowing down play. [Apr 2007, p.118]

    This is a farce of a game and "Super Smash Bros" has already done the cartoon, co-op, beat-'em-up with infinitely more flair and class, nine long years ago. [Mar 2007, p.111]

    The only fight this game is winning is the one for worst beat-em-up on PSP. [Aug 2007, p.114]

    Thanks for the memories, Mr. Wizard. Now toddle back to your castle and don't bother us again. [Oct 2007, p.113]

    Excruciatingly sterile turn-based combat. [Sept 2007, p.116]

    If there were no other racers on PS3, or indeed on the planet, buying this would still be a mistake, but with the likes of Dirt already out there, and Motorstorm: Pacific Rift on the horizon, spending money on Baja would be nothing short of madness. [Dec 2008, p.113]

    In a game that's only two hours long, being this gnawingly repetitive is actually quite an achievement. [May 2009, p.103]

    Should you even think about renting it for a laugh? To quote Dick Marcinko: "F*ck no." [Feb 2010, p.107]

    It's almost worth playing Chronicles just to appreciate how bad it is. Almost, but definitely not. [Apr 2010, p.112]

    To facilitate the stalking, there's a present-giving mechanic. [June 2010, p.119]

    Two hours of unmitigated boredom. [Christmas 2010]

    Avoid like you would a family holiday to Nudefest 2010. [Issue#51, p.110]

    There's not enough room here to say how much I hate this game. I could write a novel about why Two Worlds II is the worst thing to happen to the fantasy RPG genre since encumbrance systems. [Apr 2011, p.114]

    If I'd bought this for the Atari ST in 1989, I'd want my money back. [Sept 2011, p.107]

    Pretty amusing until you realise what a shameful rip-off it is. [Sept 2011, p.108]

    It's basic, ugly and lacks any sense of excitement. [Apr 2012, p.118]

    The AI appears to have all the intellect of an overcooked marrow, which might very well make a more appealing videogame. [May 2012, p.116]

    From awful to appealing. [May 2012, p.116]

    It only avoids the worst score I can give by virtue of the fact that it (just about) functions. Rambo inspires more anger than biting your tongue just after you’ve stubbed your toe.

    I'd say that you should try playing this only to laugh at its total, across-the-board incompetence, but it'd be like recommending you throw eight quid into the bin and then roll around naked and giggling in a pile of your own faeces. Unrivaled indeed. [Sept 2010, p.115]

    Riding to actual Hell over 1000 miles of broken glass using your own scrotum as a toboggan would be more enjoyable.
