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

    Way superior to rival "Beijing 2008." [Oct 2008, p.103]

    For 2D shooter nostalgists this is close to essential, but for everyone else it's just a comprehensive curio. [Aug 2007, p.114]

    Watch Dogs relies on unfiltered girth to entertain. Another victim of cross-gen releases, there’s nothing particularly ‘new-gen’ about the game, but there are plenty of good ideas and a lot of activities to keep you busy. The fundamentals for a truly special game are in place – but as was the case with Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry, it now falls to the sequels to fully realise it.

    It makes experimenting with cartoonish ultra-violence so, well, painless. [Feb 2008, p.90]

    It's rarely short of absurd charm or interesting things to do. [Oct 2014, p.88]

    You'll only come over all outraged and teary when Edinburgh Castle goes 'boom'. [Sept 2007, p.116]

    Our biggest concern is the putting. The analogue control that's so effective for approach shots lacks sensitivity on the greens. [Apr 2007, p.110]

    A sequel with increased complexity but no more finesse than the original. Payday 2 has a swag bag full of worthy ambitions, but overstretches when it comes to execution.

    The issues aren’t ruinous, and in the case of the multiplayer more an inconvenience that EA needs to address than anything else – but it’s enough to take the shine off what should be one of the best shooters on PS4.

    The problem here isn't the looks or the amount of stuff there is to do, it's the controls. [Oct 2009, p.109]

    Loads of geeky fun. [Aug 2009, p.118]

    Played in small bursts, EDF's knowingly daft, trashy action is an unapologetic hoot. [Sept 2011, p.107]

    The game's relentlessly narrow focus frustrates as much as the repetitious grind of the racing. [May 2008, p.98]

    Kane & Lynch 2 is as much an online grudge generator as it is a video game. [Issue#51, p.120]

    There's a decent fighting system underneath all the pencil-sketches and pixie dust. [Mar 2009, p.102]

    The closest Killzone Mercenary comes to having a thing is in its touch controls, and as satisfying as they are the marriage of console shooter and iOS game doesn’t elevate it into the realm of the exceptional.

    There are at least enough creative, sharing and multiplayer options to stop things going stale. [July 2010, p.118]

    4am's unique interaction style and possibilities deserve that extra bit of polish to match their innovation. [Aug 2012, p.105]

    Be it throwing chattering teeth with The Joker or hogtieing Doomsday with Green Arrow, there’s a constant playful charm in doling out moves. And unlike Mortal Kombat Vs DC Universe, Injustice boasts a stable netcode, where streamlined matchmaking and lag-free fights make for a solid online offering. A pretty heroic effort all told, then. But one that falls short of super status.

    The shooty racing is good, clean fun. [Sept 2011, p.112]

    I love this game, I really do, but I can't give it the score I want in its current state. That would be unfair to anyone forking out £40 for a something that might work. It might not. The most amazing game of the year is in there somewhere. I really hope Bethesda can get it out.
