    Solid action that's let down by a weak story and lack of momentum. [Mar 2010, p.74]

    Great stuff. [Christmas 2009, p.94]

    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Brilliantly chaotic and rapid, but lacking that killer edge. [June 2010, p.86]
    • PSM3 Magazine UK
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A new direction for LocoRoco that can't match the originals. [Jan 2010, p.94]
    • PSM3 Magazine UK
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An explosive JRPG hamstrung by drab environments and duff characters.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    One of the more intriguing strategy titles available on PSN. [May 2010, p.96]
    • PSM3 Magazine UK
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A must buy for fans, but not as accessible or rich as RB: Beatles. [Aug 2010, p.92]

    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    And in that respect, as a life simulator, it's depressingly authentic; an endlessly-looping cycle of tedium interspersed with brief moments of happiness and, eventually, death.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An acquired taste, but streamlined and authentic. [Christmas 2010, p.90]
    • PSM3 Magazine UK
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Demanding, but with a fine track list and immaculate presentation. [Jan 2011, p.84]
    • PSM3 Magazine UK
    • 91 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The stages are dynamic. [Feb 2011, p.101]

    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The battle system is surprisingly accessible and doesn't suffer from that modern over-eagerness to hold your hand...Great stuff. [Mar 2011, p.96]
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Visually epic with stunning 3D, but same daft plot and one-note thrills. [Mar 2011, p.78]
    • 61 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    As a racer, it's an improvement over Reflex. [July 2011, p.94]
    • PSM3 Magazine UK
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best F1 game PS3's had - yet issues with AI stupidity remain problematic. [Nov 2011, p.100]
    • PSM3 Magazine UK
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Great DLC for a great arcade shooter. [Dec 2011, p.110]
    • PSM3 Magazine UK
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A mixture of smart FPS combat and lame shooter cliches. [Christmas 2011, p.105]
    • PSM3 Magazine UK
    • 58 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Best Gaiden yet, but not as accomplished as Bayonetta. It is less hardcore than previous games, making solo play enjoyable, but the online is a misstep. [May 2012, p.96]
    • PSM3 Magazine UK
    • 64 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's the equivalent of a shrapnel grenade rather than single, well-placed sniper bullets. Some bits will miss, others will lodge deep enough to leave a lasting impression. [May 2012, p.106]

    • 79 Metascore

    The free-running and combat are a joy, and you'll be running around for pure fun. But an abundance of weak missions and a daft storyline get in the way all too often.
    • PSM3 Magazine UK
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A fast-paced and violent shooter with Rockstar's trademark style and panache, marred by a lack of variety in tone and content, and an overlong story. [July 2012, p.94]
    • PSM3 Magazine UK
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Shines as a tactical blend between third-person shooting and serious strategy - but is eclipsed by Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare. [July 2012, p.104]
    • PSM3 Magazine UK
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Fun even if the pretensions to thinkiness flounder. [Aug 2012, p.96]
    • PSM3 Magazine UK
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An intelligent, original, and charming puzzler that's held back by awkward platforming and some erratic, often utterly illogical physics. [Aug 2012, p.100]
    • PSM3 Magazine UK
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Resident Evil 6 is one hell of a long ride, and there are some amazing stunts along the way. Even a few original ones. But next to the shooter that it tries so assiduously to out-do, Resi 6 feels stale, and compounds things with OTT action sequences that are more B-movie than Bourne. [Dec 2012, p.94]
    • PSM3 Magazine UK
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A gargantuan, lavish historical epic that pushes PS3 to its limits, only to be led down by linear missions and a clunky interface. [Christmas 2012, p.82]
    • PSM3 Magazine UK
    • 75 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    Some of the collision detection is a bit off and it doesn't have the big-budget heavyweight feel of "GTA," but it's an enjoyable, robust crime yarn. [Oct 2006, p.70]
    • PSM3 Magazine UK
    • 75 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    Too simplistic to compete with "DiRT," but this is still an enjoyable, pure arcade racer. [Nov 2007, p.66]
    • PSM3 Magazine UK
    • 57 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    Looks gorgeous, but the obsessive focus on combat can be as irritating as it is exciting. [Aug 2007, p.76]
    • PSM3 Magazine UK
    • 75 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    A gimmick, yes, but a good one. While it lasts it's fun, but it needs more game modes. [Dec 2007, p.72]
