    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]

    Save it for multi-player and you'll have a lot of fun - but there are too many niggles to make it a classic. [Aug 2006, p.54]

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

    Zettai 2 strains under the weight of its own ambition, but is a cracking achievement nonetheless... We'd far rather a game reached for the stars and didn't quite make it than was happy to drown in the seas of sameyness. [JPN Import; Aug 2006, p.70]

    They've not exactly matured like a fine cheese or wine, but this selection is worth a look. [Apr 2006, p.85]

    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]

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

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

    • 60 Critic Score
    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]

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

    Yes, it's Crapt. [Apr 2006, p.72]

    FIFA Street 2 is more a 30-yard screamer than a precision tap-in - often unpredictable and frustrating, but redeemed by flashes of brilliance. [Apr 2006, p.51]

    • 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]

    A decent attempt with some really nice touches. But everything that's to be found here has been done better in any number of World War II titles. [Apr 2006, p.58]

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

    Simple, clean and fun - this is a fine example of a children's videogame, with some jokes for the grown-ups too. Surprisingly entertaining. [Aug 2006, p.76]

    "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]

    An object lesson in why certain games probably shouldn't make the transition to PSP - wait for "Double Agent" on PS2 instead and enjoy the 'Cell experience in all its intended glory. [May 2006, p.74]

    Terrible. Oveblown, opportunistic nonsense. If you're a FFVII fan avoid Dirge of Cerebrus completely - it'll only sully your memories. [JPN Import; June 2006, p.68]

    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]
    • PSM2 Magazine UK
    • 56 Metascore
    • 62 Critic Score
    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]
    • PSM2 Magazine UK
    • 55 Metascore
    • 57 Critic Score
    Another garbled 3D Sonic outing to add to the pile. [May 2006, p.52]

    • 54 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    The odd clever puzzle is overshadowed by rubbish fighting bits. Watch the film or read the book. [July 2006, p.75]
    • PSM2 Magazine UK
    • 53 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    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
    • 48 Critic Score
    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
    • 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]
    • PSM2 Magazine UK
    • 52 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A solid playable affair that suffers death by a thousand cuts in the form of too many niggling short-comings. Another so-so X-men game, then. [July 2006, p.73]
    • 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]

    It does capture the flavour of the And1 competition. [Aug 2006, p.72]

    • 68 Critic Score
    A competent racer that stands out from the crowd by means of an interesting team race mode. Worth a look if you fancy a driving game with a difference. [Apr 2006, p.52]
