    A little rough around the edges, but this is a seriously enjoyable sandbox backed up by an involving story, well-rounded characters and some brutal combat. [Oct 2012, p.98]

    Not as great as holding the peripherals, but this is a satisfying PSP alternative. [Aug 2009, p.68]

    Some of the smartest gameplay available on PS3. [Feb 2011, p.101]

    Fit-to-bursting with fun, Castle Crashers is a rare PSN treat. [Jan 2011, p.96]

    Waffly, but this inventive musical RPG strikes few bum notes. [Mar 2009, p.56]

    A decent, if repetitive, shooter with incredible looks and set-pieces. [May 2011, p.78]

    Online rankings are the icing on this outwardly bland, but ultimately rather tasty cake. [May 2007, p.77]

    This is the best MotoGP game by far. [Apr 2010, p.96]

    A solid update: the only things missing are the lack of team talks and crowd sounds. [Christmas 2009, p.90]

    Great retro scrapper. Superb in co-op but can drag when playing solo. [Oct 2010, p.84]

    The tracks are still awesome. [Christmas 2010, p.90]

    Every Extend Extra takes the best parts of many classic gaes, but loses a lot of their magic along the way. We like it, yes, but we like "Lumines" more... Very good, but not quite essential. [Dec 2006, p.78]

    It's fast and it's beautiful - but mostly it's classic WipEout. [Apr 2012, p.104]

    • 83 Critic Score
    As a five-hour solo-player game, it's clearly rental only. For online players the value is far greater - a solid, varied, Call of Duty rival, with fresher weapon load outs, plus vehicles and drones... Shocking but short, this is an intense shooter with a lack of finesse. [Apr 2011, p.66]
    • 74 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    The minor problems and lack of originality are far outweighed by the game's quality and improvement in gameplay. [Dec 2006, p.72]

    The controls are intuitive, and the action fast, making this a satisfying PSN title. [Christmas 2009, p.91]

    Not the best value rhythm action game, but a fun party piece. [Jan 2010, p.78]

    For 20 notes, though, you can't really complain. Played the PSP version to death? Leave this on the shop shelf. But if you're looking for a sunny spot to fritter away the hours until you get a PS3, then GTA is still the only vacation we'd recommend.

    The best FIFA yet, but EA are still a few goals short of the title. [Nov 2008, p.80]

    A perfect compliment to the original. [July 2010, p.96]

    There's more to this than controversy. Intelligent, demanding brains, patience...and a strong stomach. [Sept 2007, p.76]

    A superb - and pleasantly cheap - HD update of a criminally ignored, highly-original old action platformer. [Feb 2012, p.107]

    Cute, sweet and massively entertaining. [May 2008, p.80]

    A great use of PS Eye. Has plenty of appeal for kids and adults. [Dec 2009, p.90]

    It could - probably should - look better, but it's ridiculously deep and authentic with loads to do, both online and off. [Nov 2011, p.101]

    The most refined puzzle-action game on PS3. Hugely addictive. [June 2008, p.72]

    For Wild West virgins, it's an entertaining package, if just shy of an essential purchase. [Jan 2011, p.96]

    • 83 Critic Score
    Some inventive Trophies, clean looks and an emotional campaign make this a great purchase at 12 quid. [Feb 2010, p.92]

    Ultimately, MGS: PO is like eating a platter of finely crafted hors d'oeuvres - easy to digest, but compromised and repetitive. It's just less satisfying than a set menu of balanced textures and flavours - and, simply, why "MGS: Snake Eater is still Kojima's tastiest dish. [Feb 2007, p.60]

    PSP missed the first iPhone port, but this is better. [Nov 2011, p.111]
