    It quickly becomes repetitive nonsense. [Apr 2012, p.97]

    Wonderful visuals mask a messy, unnecessarily frustrating stomp. [Sept 2015, p.86]

    Note to Sony: next time, just make us a game where we can chuckle at our distended faces. It's funnier. [Dec 2007, p.113]

    There's some serviceable twin-stick multiplayer shooting under the cowboy fancy dress, but sadly it's below some glaring technical problems, too. [Feb 2015, p.95]

    A reskinned arcade game with tacked-on multiplayer. [Oct 2012, p.117]

    Repetition limits the fun. [Oct 2011, p.115]

    The game certainly doesn't make things easy for you. [Nov 2011, p.99]

    • 50 Critic Score
    The shooting at the core of the game is pretty solid, but that doesn't count for much when every complex set-piece cripples its engine. [Apr 2008, p.102]

    To be fair, this is a game that degrades everyone. [Dec 2008, p.106]

    It's a cheap way to show off your sexy new HDTV. [Christmas 2007, p.112]

    Brainteasers are trapped in an overly punitive framework. [Apr 2012, p.113]

    The stealth lacks Ezio's style. [Apr 2012, p.115]

    A bit inconsistent. [Apr 2012, p.115]

    Somewhat dull resource management. [Nov 2012, p.117]

    For all its easy-going accessibility, it doesn't play anything like a realistic game of rugby, so those looking for authenticity should kick this one into touch. [Sept 2007, p.106]
    • Playstation Official Magazine UK
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Nauseatingly basic. [March 2013, p.114]

    Might lack depth, but it certainly isn't short of fire power. [July 2011, p.91]

    It's a bit dull, sure, but there's also something oddly soothing about it. [March 2013, p.117]

    Give me the option of a night in with the first season's Blu-ray boxset or this mostly shabby spin-off and I'd go HD Sean Bean chivalry every time.

    Laborious menus. [July 2011, p.95]

    The problem is it's not fun. [Christmas 2015, p.83]

    Not good enough to be set free, not bad enough to be tossed to the lions. [July 2011, p.95]

    The frame rate is embarrassing. [Christmas 2010]

    A control scheme and camera that are aggressively opposed to you actually achieving any success or pleasure. [Christmas 2009, p.116]

    It's the repetition that grinds you down. Boss battles provide brief breaks in the monotony, but they're just the seeping gizzard of consolation inside a disappointing, fleshy haystack.
    • 54 Metascore

    An opportunity missed. [Christmas 2010]

    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.
    • 63 Metascore

    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]
