    Without PS2's power, MoH is tiresome and dull. [Christmas 2006, p.98]
    • 56 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    What a terrible shame, then, that a game with such weird possibilities really does end up being well...typical. [Jan 2007, p.84]
    • 68 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    The exploding levels are a barely-veiled, needlessly complicated, rip-off of Mortal Kombat's hotspots, while fighting lacks imagination and characters blur into one. We'd have settled for a shinier version of Def Jam: FFNY - complete with Blazin' moves (inexplicably taken out here) - instead of this disappointing effort.

    The problem is that it's just too easy. [Jan 2007, p.83]
    • 60 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    We've done this dozens of times before and replacing bearded Chinese men with robots doesn't change a thing. [Dec 2007, p.82]
    • 55 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    Hugely samey and mostly joyless. [Nov 2007, p.84]
    • 62 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    The puzzles are repetitive, loading times are neverending and with only 40 levels, FS is far too short. [June 2008, p.84]
    • 71 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    Massively ordinary shooter with a bizarre plot and rubbish AI. [Oct 2009, p.78]
    • 52 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    There are a wealth of better options available - pick up "Burnout" or "Wipeout Pure", instead. [Issue#174, p.83]
    • 51 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    Everything we expected and less. Duke should have stayed dead. [Aug 2011, p.88]
    • 56 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    Lacks a strong identity and any real thrills. [June 2012, p.111]
    • 57 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    Imitates better fantasy RPGs poorly. It's interesting concept is buried under poor story-telling, a lifeless world, and dull combat. [Christmas 2012, p.89]
    • 68 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    Being a superhero should be exciting, not a drab slog through a series of boring corridors, right? [Christmas 2006, p.76]
    • 74 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    This really very attractive game is hand-wringingly dull. Here's why: the handling is terrible. In fact, it's so flawed there's simply never a time when it's fun, or even satisfying, to drive these cars.

    • 48 Critic Score
    The actual amount of fun you'll have playing is as miniscule as the Invisibles themselves. An adult-difficulty kids game that makes you swear like an OAP? No, thanks.

    • 48 Critic Score
    While it would be easy to dismiss this game as being completely worthless we've played much, much worse. [Feb 2007, p.79]
    • 57 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    Do yourself a favor and steer clear of this one. [Oct 2007, p.84]
    • 52 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    It's still wonky like a broken seesaw. [May 2008, p.79]
    • 60 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    Sadly there's little to capture the imagination of modern day gamers. [Jan 2008, p.80]
    • 45 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    This is one tour that should definitely have been cancelled. [Apr 2008, p.82]
    • 53 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    There's some fun to be had with friends, but none without them. [Oct 2008, p.72]
    • 50 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    Merely a disappointing and lightweight FPS. [Christmas 2008, p.86]
    • 41 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    By the end you'll want to unbuckle CID's seatbelt and drive him into the nearest brick wall. [July 2009, p.76]
    • 65 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    Why didn't they make it better? [Christmas 2010, p.89]
    • 68 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    Not realistic, and not much fun. [Apr 2011, p.90]
    • 58 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    Boring environments, repetitive gameplay and poor combat mean this is considerably worse than its predecessor. [Christmas 2011, p.105]
    • 51 Metascore
    • 47 Critic Score
    It's just relentless button mashing with no variation. [Oct 2006, p.86]
    • 43 Metascore
    • 47 Critic Score
    It is worth a rent, however, just to savour the few good bits, laugh at all the glitches... and to start crying when you remember what Sonic games used to be like in the '90s. Sob.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 47 Critic Score
    Dull, fuzzy graphics, poor camera control and repetitive gameplay spoil both the single and multiplayer game. It's basically no fun whatsoever. [Christmas 2006, p.98]
    • 61 Metascore
    • 47 Critic Score
    Tedious gameplay with stitched-on flying bits? You've got yourself another drab Star Wars adventure. Rubbish. [Jan 2007, p.68]
