    This well polished, if slightly limited, multi-player game is a steal. [Aug 2009, p.62]

    • 83 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    A rewarding slasher, which puts action ahead of plot and atmosphere. [Oct 2009, p.56]
    • 88 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    The result is a game that's as informative as the best of documentaries and right up there with the best party games available on console. That's assuming the people in your party like The Beatles of course. Despite the sheen, authenticity, and seminal extras, Rock Band 2 can still hold its head high as the most instantly gratifying and universal game in the series.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    Substantial, hilarious and huge. Sadly, this port feels hamstrung next to the DS version. [Dec 2009, p.88]

    Add a new competitive online mode (only two players, mind) where you can earn upgrades for your ship and you're looking at another must-buy. [May 2011, p.92]

    • 79 Metascore

    Unique and even more compelling with Move, this is a joyous excuse to lose yourself in a true PlayStation classic. [Jan 2013, p.104]

    • 77 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    The gameplay suits PSP brilliantly, and is much better than if they'd made an FPS. Just about essential. [Dec 2006, p.88]
    • PSM3 Magazine UK
    • 74 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    One of the best beat-em-ups on PSP, with enough manic mayhem to brighten up any joyless miser's days. [Oct 2006, p.76]

    • 85 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Not small and not perfectly formed, but packs a wicked punch. Accomplished, but stops short of brilliance. [May 2007, p.60]
    • PSM3 Magazine UK
    • 84 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Combines strategy and shooting to excellent effect. Not perfect, but it really <I>feels</I> like war. [Sept 2007, p.64]
    • 85 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Matches could be longer, but the strategy is top notch. Excellent. [Aug 2008, p.72]

    A backward step in some ways. But it's still PES, and so remains horrifyingly addictive. [Dec 2007, p.62]
    • PSM3 Magazine UK
    • 85 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    A cleverly designed, brilliantly executed open-world shooter. [July 2009, p.54]

    Fun to play and a fitting homage. The best 'artist' spinoff yet. [June 2009, p.72]

    • 86 Critic Score
    The concept is charming and well executed, meaning you'll probably sink over 50 hours into it. Ironic. [May 2010, p.96]

    Controls feel stubborn post-"Dead Space", but it's still superb as ever. [Apr 2009, p.58]

    • 81 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Great value, if stubbornly old school and a little obscure. [June 2010, p.98]

    Finally appeals to both novices and seasoned fans. [Oct 2010, p.97]

    Limbo's tortures can be hard to take, but nevertheless the game's a joy to play. [Oct 2011, p.102]

    • 80 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Not quite up the standard of the PS3 games - but then what it is? It's still a triumphant early outing for Nathan Drake, and Vita's best launch title. [March 2012, p.88]
    • PSM3 Magazine UK
    • 88 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Genius design wrapped in gentle whimsy. [Apr 2012, p.105]

    Smart, funny, charming and beautiful. Needs a strategic brain, and requires patience, but otherwise great. [Dec 2012, p.99]

    Unlike anything else out there: beautiful and inventive. [Christmas 2012, p.100]

    The best Splinter Cell yet and a top-notch stealth game. But Sam needs some new ideas to topple Snake. [Dec 2006, p.84]
    • PSM3 Magazine UK
    • 79 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Exaggerated, stupid and brutal... but we mean that as a compliment. The best beat-'em-up on PSP. [Sept 2006, p.66]
