    This was sort of acceptable a couple of years ago, but with PSP now capable of tossing around gigantic, detailed cities, it looks a bit old-fashioned. [July 2007, p.108]

    It's all pleasingly brightly coloured. [June 2011, p.111]

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

    An embarrassing, nauseating mess. [Spring 2011, p.116]

    A shameful and hybrid beast, but one you might just want to tame. [Aug 2011, p.112]

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

    Likeable at times, but the lack of variety will have you reaching for the bottle long before the end. [Feb 2010, p.115]

    • 50 Critic Score
    This is not destined to join the pantheon of action greats. [Mar 2009, p.90]

    Even with its lack of storyline and focused goals, the micro-mangement gameplay is as insidious as it is familiar. [Mar 2007, p.116]

    Feel dirty. [Apr 2012, p.118]

    Captures almost all the charm of its full-sized counterpart. [Christmas 2010]

    In booting out such a shamelessly phoned-in product it shows a flagrant lack of faith in Vita as a format. If you own FIFA Football, there's no way you should buy this… unless you really can't bear to see the Arse line up minus Santi Carzola. Naughty FIFA.

    Tedious. [Feb 2012, p.112]

    Sadly, the frantic combat is never as graceful as it should be. [Apr 2013, p.117]

    Engrossing pick-up-and-play action. [Apr 2012, p.115]

    Less fun is how it plays. [Jan 2010, p.119]

    Promise is let down by its execution. [Sept 2013, p.94]

    Between the travel sickness, the lurid colours and the nightmare-inducing soundtrack, one level is the playable equivalent of food poisoning. Another over-used puzzle has you rolling around collecting stars as time ticks away in a manner horribly reminiscent of a smartphone app that would cost around £17 less.

    This is barely a game. [July 2014, p.80]

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

    • 56 Metascore
    • 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]

    Rather than doing anything very clever, it just nicks some of the best lines from the films, reminds you of the bits you liked, and carries on quietly being an incredibly average platform scrapper. [Sept 2007, p.117]

    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]

    This looks sharp and, most importantly, feels good as you pull the trigger. [May 2008, p.115]

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

    You're either on rails with almost no control, or doing random tricks that feel totally disconnected from the peripheral itself. [Jan 2011, p.121]
