    You could suffer in the hope of a smirk or you could just buy the DVDs. Giggity-goo! Etc. [Christmas 2006, p.80]

    LGEC works, just, but there's really 'neigh' ponit in playing it. [Sept 2007, p.80]

    There's no real fun to be had. [Oct 2007, p.85]

    It has a certain nostalgia, but this fails to entertain long enough to demand a purchase. [Feb 2008, p.72]

    The gameplay is about as much fun as parading your plums through a blender. [Nov 2008, p.85]

    Unfortunately, the game's biggest strength is also its downfall. It stays true to the pace and mechanics of the real game. [Nov 2008, p.84]

    • 52 Metascore
    • 43 Critic Score
    The real problem is that this is half-decent action meets seriously sub-par presentation. [Sept 2009, p.76]

    What should be a romp turns out to be a tedious affair. [Christmas 2011, p.94]

    Worst of all, Via Domus fails to work as a decent game - thanks to its refusal to let you explore, dull puzzling and an appalling ending that was already cheesy when "Dallas" did it 20 years ago. [Apr 2008, p.78]

    THQ's platformer handles infuriatingly enough to make you hate - arguably - Pixar's most likeable character yet. [Sept 2008, p.79]

    The controls are sticky, the animation is staggered and lumpy, and overall it's not worth playing at all. [Christmas 2009, p.95]

    Play it for the trophies, if you must. [Jan 2010, p.94]

    A listless, pointless misfire of a game. [Nov 2011, p.106]

    Kazook is like "Ape Academy", but without the apes. Oh, and the fun. [Dec 2006, p.95]

    • 51 Metascore
    • 41 Critic Score
    An unavoidably bad game with shoddy design and a lame, thankless combat system. [Christmas 2007, p.68]

    • 38 Metascore

    Dreadful graphics and poor fighting mechanics. [Apr 2008, p.83]

    You know how when you're going through a traumatic experience, time seems to slow down as you take in the full horror of what's happening? [May 2008, p.78]

    The band don't appear on stage at all, replaced by a bunch of misfits for each song. [Feb 2009, p.85]

    • 44 Metascore

    Ugly, buggy and mostly boring to play. A decent peripheral wasted. [Feb 2010, p.90]

    Dark, confusing. [Jan 2011, p.96]

    A mess of a shooter-cum-driver. We can smell what the Rock is cooking, and, frankly, it stinks. [Dec 2006, p.90]

    • 47 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    This lacks imagination, with infernally basic playability. Avoid. [Oct 2008, p.76]

    It feels like a clone of "The Godfather," but nowhere near on the same level in terms of depth and enjoyment. [Jan 2007, p.81]

    On Dreamcast and PS2 it was slick and colourful. On PSP it's blocky and slow. [Oct 2007, p.84]

    • 40 Critic Score
    It's very old-fashioned, very familiar and very frustrating - much like it ever was, then - but at least you can still enjoy blowing up all the lemmings for fun. [May 2007, p.76]

    Decent combat, but 40 quid is a fairytale price for this sub-PSN effort. [Christmas 2009, p.88]
