    It's a solid puzzle game that doesn't do anything very wrong. Sadly, nor does it do anything we haven't seen before, and at thirty notes you'd be much better off with top PSP puzzler "Lumines." [July 2006, p.108]

    • 66 Critic Score
    Better than "Crash," worse than "Tak 2," and forgettable in almost every aspect. [May 2006, p.69]

    Unfortunately, all that's beneath the complex briefings and tactical-sounding objectives is some rather standard shooting. [June 2006, p.50]

    Looks beautiful, is huge and has a genuinely great plot. A shame, then, that it's hobbled with a stupidly-complex fighting system. Grr. [May 2006, p.69]

    Identical to the PS2 version in content but the PSP's limitations really pick away at the polish revealing something far less beautiful. A disappointment, all told. [June 2006, p.70]

    Good fun with a mate, but <I>staggeringly</> empty in solo mode. Buying this to play alone is like getting a pack of card just for Solitaire. [Apr 2006, p.78]

    Anyone after genuine thrills, or traces of originality visible to the naked eye, will be disappointed. [July 2006, p.112]

    Not as good as a regular "Monkey Ball" game would've been. The adventure stuff feels tacked-on and the PSP's rubbish analogue stick makes control a bit of a nightmare. [July 2006, p.110]

    • 52 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    A decent ocean adventure with bite, but distracting as it is, it's unlikely to set up a Jaws: Unleashed 2, let alone a Jaws IV: The Revenge. [Aug 2006, p.64]

    It's got about as much impact of a mallet made of feathers. [Aug 2006, p.84]

    • 68 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    It isn't terrible, but it's doing absolutely nothing that we've not seen before. It's a realistic, but soulless, exhibition of off-road action. Get it on PS2 instead. [May 2006, p.78]

    It becomes an exercise in just jabbing buttons and hoping. [June 2006, p.72]

    A disappointingly straight port of a mediocre game, From Russia With Love is a mere diversion - temporary, and awkwardly forgettable and here to occupy a place in the PSP's product portfolio. [Apr 2006, p.82]
    • PSM2 Magazine UK
    • 62 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    The same old Dynasty Warriors, but with a competent-yet-underwhelming strategy game stapled onto it. Yet more of the same old thing unfortunately. [July 2006, p.98]

    • 59 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    Worryingly disturbing, but just as worryingly patchy to play. A masterpiece of oddness that makes for a malnourished and sluggish video game. [JPN Import; June 2006, p.62]

    Another garbled 3D Sonic outing to add to the pile. [May 2006, p.52]

    Wi-Fi multi-player is fun, but play on your own and you'll soon slip into a slumber. [Aug 2006, p.82]

    "Drakengard" wasn't doing anything new two years ago and its sequel does nothing new either. This really is a case of flogging a dead dragon. [Apr 2006, p.58]

    • 48 Metascore
    • 53 Critic Score
    A stupefyingly simple and basic action game that will only linger in the memory because of the laugh-out-loud funny voice acting. [July 2006, p.98]

    Only for the truly nostalgia-obsessed. [Apr 2006, p.74]

    Looking for something exciting in Eagle Eye Golf is like searching for needle in a particularly needle-free haystack. [Aug 2006, p.75]

    • 73 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    It's OK for a quickie, but with such lacklustre tables, you'll never be able to form a lasting relationship with it. [July 2006, p.112]

    A tragic waste of one of gaming's more loveable franchises, Adventure takes the Monkey Ball concept and employs it in a manner to which it just isn't suited. [Aug 2006, p.58]
    • PSM2 Magazine UK
    • 53 Metascore

    All you'd expect of a Turtles game - tired, repetitive, primary coloured hack 'n' slash monotony and nothing else. Don't even buy it for a hated younger relative. [June 2006, p.63]
    • PSM2 Magazine UK
    • 51 Metascore
    • 47 Critic Score
    It's fun for a while, but the lame objectives and lack of power-ups soon make this a chore. It's about time this franchise was buried under some rubble. [May 2006, p.68]

    • 57 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    A hilarious waste of time. A few Xtreme Legends updates here and there was bearable, but one for every version of the game is just too much. [May 2006, p.70]

    • 50 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    An ultra-niche and adequately designed quiz game with enough questions to keep you going for a couple of hours, but only really worth a rental. [Apr 2006, p.73]

    A game that will appeal to no one, but if you're the exception to the rule, please send a photo as we're curious to know what you look like. Cheers. [June 2006, p.69]

    We'd love to see another good urban brawler, but this isn't anywhere near to being it. [May 2006, p.58]

    • 40 Critic Score
    While there are 40 titles on offer, this ultimately weak collection of C-list games will excite only the most crazed retro mentalist. Not us, then. [Apr 2006, p.52]
