    If you’re a big fan of snow-based sports and don’t mind the dip-in and out feel, then give this a shot.

    The game has basically one trick up its sleeve, but a trick that it executes very smoothly.

    Impressive multiplayer functionality and social tools contrast with frequent loading screens and clunky main menus.

    It was a great concept, but the third instalment has disappointed. There really isn’t much depth to be found with Skate 3, due to the short career mode and lacking extra features.

    Landit Bandit is quite short and it is limited to a few basic mechanics used to accomplish very similar tasks. The mechanics are solid enough to make it a taxing and entertaining distraction but you might be left wishing there was a little more substance and a bit more polish.

    If you're fond of Eyepet and can look past the niggles, interacting with your chosen furball has gotten a whole lot easier and more intuitive – and whilst it's not going to hold your attention for too long, it's well worth the upgrade for fans.

    It's not going to change the world and the fact that it's one player at once is a real shame, but it's highly likely to get the grandparents giggling like kids, and, to be honest, when you're buying a game like Start The Party, that's all you can ask for.

    If you just pretend the egregious FPS story mode doesn't exist there is a good amount of enjoyable content here and for those that have enjoyed previous Time Crisis games this is an obvious choice.

    If you have seen and enjoyed Tron: Legacy, then it may be worth picking up Evolution to explore the universe a little further. However, if you happen to be a gamer with no connections to the series, it's difficult to recommend.

    The game is filled to bursting with flaws and yet I found myself becoming curiously affectionate towards it. Yes the AI are baffilingly dim, gameplay is incredibly inconsistent, characters and plot are both clichéd and dull, graphics are nothing to write home about and the package as a whole does nothing to warrant your hard earned cash.

    Unfortunately, Slam Bolt Scrappers isn't the immediate arcade classic some will have been hoping for. The repetitive gameplay and lack of online multiplayer leaves the overall package feeling somewhat lacklustre. With that said, Scrappers' split-screen competitive play is almost second to none.

    The need to grind before you can unlock more, admittedly well designed, tracks and areas is bothersome but the rewards for doing so are ample enough that it is certainly worth sticking it out if you're ready for your next mud-spattered racer.

    For those who take the risk, there is a satisfying game to be enjoyed, mainly thanks to the simplistic yet diverse combat mechanics as well as drop in co-operative play. It's an ideal purchase for younger gamers anticipating the release of the film, but for anyone else, caution is advised.

    What really lets it down is the overwhelming sense of just being a visitor in someone else's game when you play online.

    Going into Sniper: Ghost Warrior with fairly low expectations, you may find yourself pleasantly surprised. Despite some of the heavy-handed mechanics and under-developed online portion there is still an enjoyable experience to be had.

    I can't help but feel slightly frustrated when summarising my time with Bleach: Soul Resurrección. It's an enjoyable game, wrapped in solid gameplay mechanics, but is let down in several areas. The fact it can be finished so soon is very surprising, although not as surprising as the lack of online (or even offline) multiplayer, bearing in mind it worked so well for the latest Naruto game.

    X-Men: Destiny fits our 6/10 scoring criteria perfectly. It's an "above average" game, that succeeds in certain areas whilst falling down in others. There's no doubt that there is enjoyment to be had from this title, but one can't help but wonder how good it would have been with a lot more polish, and some variety thrown in.

    Although the gameplay mechanics are solid, there is no challenge whatsoever even on the highest difficulty setting.

    In theory Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi is the perfect Dragon Ball game. The gorgeous visuals, wealth of content and characters spanning Z and GT will delight fans. Unfortunately there's no escaping the fact that the core of the game, the actual fighting, gets boring very quickly and dissolves into the same few moves time and time again.

    The 2D platforming sections are worthy of praise and show that, when Sonic Team are on their game, they can really get it right. The issue is that when they fail it seems to be pretty spectacularly bad. The balance of good and bad levels is pretty even, throwing you back and forth between loving and hating the game.

    It's not nearly as strong as it could have been but there's enough here to provide a day or two's entertainment and – given the nature of what EA were trying to do – it at least succeeded on that level.

    There's no denying that All Zombies Must Die! has potential. The crafting idea is a good one, and with a few people round the gameplay is certainly enjoyable. However, the repetitive nature of the quests, frustrating single player experience and lack of online co-op really does drag the game down.

    With only a few hours of focussed gameplay, this is a little light on lasting appeal. Don't let that put you off though, Michael Jackson's music has a timeless quality and the presentation of this game is top notch.

    No matter what you do, the stats mean absolutely nothing.

    What is difficult to forgive though, are the distracting drops in frame rate at key times which make the game frustrating to play.

    Hungry Giraffe is a fun game. It's nothing groundbreaking, but it's a compulsive, replayable game in which you'll always be aiming to beat your high score. If it were an expanded game, it would be much better, though for what it is – a minis title – it manages to do what it set out to.
    • 52 Metascore

    By no means a bad game. The chance to face off against Resident Evil favourites such as Nemesis is a really interesting idea, and the constant threat of zombies will always have you on edge. Saying that, I can see the multiplayer modes becoming repetitive fairly quickly. Whilst differing slightly, the modes on offer are too similar, and all play out on the same handful of maps.

    It may be a visually sound package that throws a few unique spins on the Silent Hill template, though the sometimes awkward puzzles and irredeemably abysmal combat are enough to drag Downpour down the gutter and towards mediocrity.

    Sonic 4 Episode II feels at times dangerously close to being a great Sonic game, but there are elements throughout that let it down and leave you feeling distinctly underwhelmed. The Homing Attack is far, far more of a hindrance than an aid of any sort, and whilst the presentation is good you don't really get the feeling of a classic Sonic game with Episode II.

    Sniper Elite holds just as many pleasant surprises as it does disappointments. Despite the well-done gunplay and unique aesthetic flares, there are simply too many areas in which the game feels underdeveloped.
