    This kiddie platformer couldn't be more by-the-numbers if it was presented in binary. [March 2012, p.95]

    Had the developer spent a little more time on the haphazard real-time battling, Silverfall could have been so much more. [Sept 2007, p.116]

    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]

    The menu systems are archaic and confusing even for an RPG fan. [Aug 2011, p.111]

    Tak[es] a simple idea - roll a cube over and around 3D platforms towards an exit - and mak[es] it impossibly complicated. [Apr 2007, p.118]

    Its insistence on your covering the screen in fingerprints is occasionally frustrating, but otherwise this suggests a very bright future for the FPS genre on Vita.

    • 60 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A game that forgets its key strengths, builds on its weaknesses and throws in a novelty first-person mode that you'll play for ten minutes. [Feb 2008, p.88]

    It's nowhere near sexy enough...Heetseeker just doesn't have the quality to deliver on its premise. [May 2007, p.111]

    The short answer to the question, "Why isn't Jericho a fun game to play?" is that the AI is broken and the hackneyed horror stylings would barely have raised an eyebrow back in Barker's '80s heyday. [Dec 2007, p.104]

    Despite the odd frustration, Epic Mickey 2 is a brave platformer. It's intelligent, full of humour and, in typical Disney style, the cut-scenes are musical. Like the theme parks, environments are rich, and characters are OTT and full of enthusiasm. It's an enjoyable journey through the past century of Disney, and despite the pitfalls there are some beautifully created levels and moments of pure magic.

    A heartfelt story and unique take on platforming combine to make this an engaging, yet sadly short-lived, adventure.
