    It's a real shame that with such a powerful machine Project 8 fails to live up to its potential and ends up as a good game rather than the amazing title many of us had been waiting for. [Mar 2007, p.64]
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A slick and stylish representation of the sport that makes great use of the Sixaxis tilt function. [Apr 2007, p.60]
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Without doubt the best 'real' basketball game to hit the PS3 but is far from unbeatable because every sports game needs that 'pick up and play' factor to get players hooked. [Apr 2007, p.57]
    • 57 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Despite some poor load times, this is a highly playable and seriously addictive game. [Feb 2007, p.80]
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A good game that should improve the more you play, as more moves come out of the closet. [Mar 2007, p.73]
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A classic trip back to the great days of Mega Drive gaming, still amazingly playable today. [Jan 2007, p.56]

    • 80 Critic Score
    Quite simply the best boxing game on any machine to date. [Mar 2007, p.62]
    • 65 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Despite a few technical issues, the tactical warfare is highly enjoyable and challenging. [Feb 2007, p.74]
    • 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]
    • 67 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A beautifully realised flight sim for the PSP that will take a lot of practice to master.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Frantic action and a great sense of humour make this an enjoyable romp. [Mar 2007, p.78]
    • 66 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A really engrossing game that is only let down by the lack of pace. [Mar 2007, p.70]
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Better than before. Just lacks that little something extra to make it an absolute screamer. [Jan 2007, p.54]
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A good conversion of a classic game, it's a shame they couldn't have spruced it up just a little for this new launch. [Mar 2007, p.79]
    • 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]
    • 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]
    • 67 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Not a perfect game by any means, but an audio and visual treat that provides simple blasting fun. [Apr 2007, p.62]
    • 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]
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Offers a great collection of heroes to choose from and has plenty of replay value. [Jan 2007, p.63]
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Some more variation and a fuller landscape would have made it perfect. [Jan 2007, p.64]
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    If only there were a longer solo mode and game sharing option, it could have been really ace. [Jan 2007, p.60]
    • 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]
    • 54 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Simplistic gameplay is no bad thing when it's as fun to play as this. [Mar 2007, p.68]
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Delivers a solid FPS game and in no way should be overlooked, but as a launch title it just lacks that all-important wow factor. [Mar 2007, p.58]
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A decent theme park sim with some great interactivity, but lacks the depth needed to be great. [Feb 2007, p.76]
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Still some minor glitches, but a much more playable title than the first outing. [May 2007, p.87]
    • 60 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It plays a solid game of chess and while it doesn't really bring anything new to the party, the theming and overall presentation make it a decent and brain-taxing title. [Mar 2007, p.81]
    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Yu-Gi-Oh! fans are getting the most complete game they've had in the series while the rest will all still look at it and wonder what the hell the fuss is about. Definitely one for fans only. [Mar 2007, p.80]
    • 51 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Nice to see the old yella fella in a decent game for a change. A great kart racing experience. [May 2007, p.86]
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A well-put-together game that lacks the depth needed for lasting appeal. [Jan 2007, p.62]
