    Shambles. [Aug 2008, p.104]

    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]

    Only buy this game if you like watching little blue things die. [May 2011, p.113]

    Feeble mimic. [Spring 2011, p.108]

    Bland weapons and generic enemies. [Spring 2011, p.111]

    A lazy wasteful mess. [June 2008, p.103]

    A technical marvel this is not, but beneath the detritus lie some good ideas, at least. Open-world survival horror is a scintillating concept, conjuring images of casing out suspects at will, perhaps stumbling upon situations that blow the mystery wide open by chance. The reality’s much grimmer, of course – with so little to do between missions except tedious driving challenges, you often find yourself sleeping through the day to hurry it along.

    Feels like the sort of shovelware your mate sneaked onto the school PCs in 1996. [Dec 2009, p.18]

    The only redeemeing feature is that you don't have to deal with the AI's incompetence as much when playing against a mate. [Apr 2008, p.104]

    More hands-on control makes for a marked improvement on last year's sadistically tedious effort. [Sept 2013, p.86]
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    An interesting concept with half-decent story beats, dragged to hell by shonky puzzles, odd dialogue jumps and bugs that are far more terrifying than the subject matter. [Aug 2014, p.87]

    The game mostly consists of busywork. [July 2009, p.102]

    It's basically an 8-bit knock-off of Wipeout, without all the fun destructive bits like mines or rockets. [June 2010, p.113]

    • 42 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Another of Sony's bite-sized attempts to make motion control work, and although skydiving's a better idea than skiiing (seek out "Feel Ski" for proof - or rather, don't), it still isn't much fun. [Mar 2008, p.113]

    • 54 Metascore

    In a game build around multiplayer, it's baffling that the developer would undermine any gains made through Infinity being freely available by making it so difficult to play once you have it. [Aug 2014, p.91]

    A Move interface would have worked better. [Jan 2012, p.114]

    It takes a decent idea, then tries to compensate for its unpredictable framerate with grinding and shooting and powerslides that just make it a confusing mess. [Apr 2008, p.112]

    Dull puzzles. [Sept 2008, p.96]

    That those thrills are buried beneath so much frustration, however, is utter madness. [Aug 2014, p.94]

    Just mildly incomprehensible. [May 2011, p.118]

    If you stripped away the beloved license and were left with the barebones mechanics on show here, this would be a [twenty]. It's only the appeal of the iconic leviathans and John Williams' wonderful score which push Jurassic Park ever so slightly above awful.

    The wrestling element has been butchered. [May 2007, p.90]
    • Playstation Official Magazine UK
    • 62 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A swing and a miss, but a game that at least delivers an easily wieldable flying model and holds your attention for the first few missions by virtue of endless 'splosions. [Sept 2013, p.95]
    • 41 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Not just another fumbled tie-in but a painfully wasted opportunity.
    • 63 Metascore

    Stop buying this crap and eventually they'll either cease making it, or make it better. [Sept 2009, p.104]

    AMY
    I wanted Amy to be good. It's a small developer trying to do something different, and a quality PSN survival horror game would have been perfect. But this is technically shoddy, poorly designed and unbearably frustrating. There's the odd moment when you care, but a dose of pure anger is never far behind.
    • 45 Metascore

    Random turn-based combat and impenetrable inventory. [Spring 2011, p.116]

    Mixed up and odd, like a platypus in a petting zoo. [Spring 2011, p.116]

    • 61 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    An incoherent mix of unattractive art styles and an absurd plot. [Apr 2011, p.114]

    • 53 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    An exercise in tedium. [Spring 2011, p.117]
