    • 91 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Too slight to rank among PSP's elite, but Chains of Olympus is as sweet as it is short. Terrific. [May 2008, p.70]
    • 92 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Overall perhaps the best party game ever - if a little less cohesive than "Guitar Hero." Still, vital.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Short and lacking context, but action-packed and technically dazzling. [Mar 2009, p.50]
    • 87 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    One of the most polished, deep RPGs ever made, and on PSP it's better than ever. [Dec 2007, p.84]
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Even if you don't like golf, give it a go because it's one of hte most charming and playable experiences on PSP to date. [Aug 2008, p.80]
    • 84 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    A strange mixture of tracks but the instruments work brilliantly.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Sterling footy action but the lack of new ideas is starting to grate. [Nov 2008, p.62]
    • 85 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Excellent value and another step forward. [Oct 2009, p.82]
    • 89 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    A startling, yet satisfying experience - if you can handle it. [Christmas 2009, p.86]
    • 87 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    It's essentially a nine-hour film that you nudge along by following on-screen button prompts, although you feel more connected with the action than this might suggest. [March 2010]
    • 81 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Huge. [Dec 2009, p.102]
    • 83 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    The best b'ball game of the season, but still not perfect. [Christmas 2009, p.90]
    • 80 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Honed, if familiar fun, but online focus causes solo player wobble. [June 2010, p.80]
    • 75 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Rich, atmospheric, memorable and measured. [Oct 2010, p.87]
    • 89 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    2K's gameplay is still miles ahead of EA's elite. [Christmas 2010, p.91]
    • 80 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    "Quotation Forthcoming"
    • 78 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Three big, bouncy adventures for 30 quid - plus upgrades. Nice. [May 2011, p.92]
    • 74 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Easily the best in the series, and a must-have for PSP owners. [June 2011, p.92]
    • 89 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Good news for buffs: new players are probably best with the original. [July 2011, p.94]
    • 83 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    A genre-spanning yarn that still captivates, that makes up for its simplicity with variety, and looks better than ever. [Aug 2011, p.92]
    • 89 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Rich, atmospheric and open-ended, but let down by twitchy AI and out-of place boss fights. Deus Ex is the thinking man's FPS, but it could have been smarter.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    One of the most polished fighters on PS3. [May 2012, p.100]
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Deep, hilarious, and simply brilliant fun. [Jan 2013, p.98]
    • 74 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    Army Of Two has even managed to innovate on a small scale - the non-magnetic cover system (which allows you to fire over and around walls without gluing you to them) makes combat feel fast and fluid, while the Aggro combat system (which draws the enemies towards the most dangerous player, making the other player effectively invisible) turns an MMORPG staple into a pretty effective combat mechanic.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    Best scrapper ever? Perhaps, but VF5 is <I>such</I> an acquired taste. Great, but not one for all. [Mar 2007, p.64]
    • 78 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    Much better than on PS3. [Oct 2007, p.79]
    • 88 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    A well designed shoot-'em-up that tells an engaging story. [Dec 2008, p.82]
    • 80 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    The attention to detail is staggering and it handles like a dream. A true technical showcase. [May 2008, p.74]
    • 76 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    Four more hours of the classic TOD? Frankly, this is hard to fault. [Oct 2008, p.70]
    • 88 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    A mediocre campaign, elevated to greatness by superb online play. [Apr 2010, p.88]
