    • 80 Critic Score
    A beautifully realised flight sim for the PSP that will take a lot of practice to master.
    • Pure Magazine UK
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A game that is fun and easy to play but a little too infantile to make it a must have. [May 2007, p.70]
    • Pure Magazine UK
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    If you like mini-games, Go! Puzzle represents some decent value with three simple yet fiendishly addictive puzzle games. [May 2007, p.66]
    • Pure Magazine UK
    • 60 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A well-implemented control system and great sense of tension make this a joy to play. [Jan 2007, p.50]
    • Pure Magazine UK
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    If it was part of a larger collection of games we couldn't fault it. But it does seem a little much to ask when it is a stand-alone title, no matter how much fun it is. [May 2007, p.84]
    • Pure Magazine UK
    • 67 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A seriously cut down version of the title that has managed to take all the fun out of the game. [Mar 2007, p.76]
    • Pure Magazine UK
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    As a demo of what can be done with the Sixaxis it shines, but as a game you'll come back to time and time again? You must be quackers. [May 2007, p.66]
    • Pure Magazine UK
    • 60 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A screaming mix of arcade shooter and realistic flight sim that hits just the right balance between the two. [Apr 2007, p.68]
    • Pure Magazine UK
    • 60 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    An interesting and diverting puzzler although a budget price would make it more attractive. [Apr 2007, p.84]
    • Pure Magazine UK
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    FEAR provides the right amount of tension coupled with amazing AI couple with amazing lighting and graphical effects that will just keep you coming back for more. [Apr 2007, p.54]
    • Pure Magazine UK
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    If there was a complaint to be levelled at the game, apart from its somewhat repetitive gameplay, it would be the lack of checkpoints - and with such huge odds against you, it does become irritating to have to restart a level from teh beginning each time you die. [May 2007, p.78]
    • Pure Magazine UK
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Offers a great slice of stylish platforming and combat for those new to the title, while adding some fresh content to keep "Two Thrones" fans happy enough to get it again from some portable Prince action. [Jan 2007, p.66]
    • Pure Magazine UK
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A great race title if you can persevere past the initial frustration. [Mar 2007, p.74]
    • Pure Magazine UK
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    When a game is this well presented, fluid to play and with such a well-balanced learning curve enabling anyone to pick up and play in just a few seconds, even those not that keen on tennis can't help but appreciate such finesse. [Mar 2007, p.47]
    • Pure Magazine UK
    • 93 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    A vast game with so much to do, it'll keep you going for months before you even get to the heart of it. [May 2007, p.62]
    • Pure Magazine UK
    • 53 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Neither a great racer nor a top car combat game, it's all a bit of a mishmash. [May 2007, p.83]
    • Pure Magazine UK
    • 84 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A mish-mash of puzzler and RPG that never really hits the heights it initially promises. [Apr 2007, p.84]
    • Pure Magazine UK
    • 70 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    A port of the previous title from PS2 doesn't really have the next-gen punch you are looking for. [Apr 2007, p.58]
    • Pure Magazine UK
    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Nothing but a money-making venture that fans should stay clear of. [May 2007, p.86]
    • Pure Magazine UK
    • 61 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    A shameless cash-in that could have been so much better with a little more thought. [May 2007, p.74]
    • Pure Magazine UK
    • 93 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Even though the latest outing isn't a massive departure from the first and pretty much carries on where the old one left off, that is no bad thing when the original was so close to perfection. [Apr 2007, p.70]
    • Pure Magazine UK
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A decent collection of boxing matches, but too disjointed to be world champion. [Mar 2007, p.77]
    • Pure Magazine UK
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    With so many options, there is little in the way of basketball that this game doesn't offer and it rightfully deserves a slam-dunking genius award. [Apr 2007, p.61]
    • Pure Magazine UK
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Every move seems to take a split second from your button press to its actual execution, which means chaining combos becomes a very taxing endeavour. [Apr 2007, p.52]
    • Pure Magazine UK
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A return to core Burnout values but the lack of Crash Mode makes it feel more of an add-on. [May 2007, p.77]
    • Pure Magazine UK
    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    One conversion too far, a game that is much more at home on the PSP than its bigger brother. [May 2007, p.71]
    • Pure Magazine UK
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Not exactly the perfect rendition of the series, although the chance to control Jinpachi and the two new Iron Fist competitors more than makes up for the loss of ending videos and limited multiplayer. [May 2007, p.66]
    • Pure Magazine UK
    • 55 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Hack and slash action that feels like it has a point makes this a highly playable game. [Apr 2007, p.85]
    • Pure Magazine UK
    • 74 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Even rookie racers can pick up and play without spending too much time getting frustrated at the handling. [Mar 2007, p.54]
    • Pure Magazine UK
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Frantic action and a great sense of humour make this an enjoyable romp. [Mar 2007, p.78]
