    It's massively crippled by terribly implemented controls and odd game mechanics that leave you scratching your head in bewilderment.

    Conquest is a third person 16-player brawl around some of Tolkien’s most famous landmarks, marred by poor visuals, unintuitive controls and repetitive gameplay.

    For a mildly cerebral experience it’s probably up there with the PSN’s other puzzle titles. It is overpriced, however, and the score reflects that.

    Van Halen deserved better, and so did Guitar Hero fans. Avoid.

    The game didn't even make me want to quote Top Gun once in this review. It's just not good, even if you feel the need… the need for speed.

    Saw II: Flesh & Blood is a shameless tie-in with the minimal amount of effort undergone to get the title out the weapon-fitted door.

    Just a shame really. The curse of the boring game.

    Overall, despite the potential of an action RPG using a Dungeons and Dragons rule set and just how great the game should have been, Daggerdale falls short in most areas.

    As it is, this feels like it could just be a re-skin of any one of a dozen poor quality Wii shovelware titles that we all feared when Sony's Move controller was first showcased and we would have difficulty endorsing that kind of product to anyone but the youngest, most easily amused.

    With barely enough content to even match a downloadable title, Supremacy MMA would be an incredibly hard sale even at a budget price. Despite lacking variety and a moderate sense of depth, the gameplay is enjoyable though ultimately not strong enough to balance out the game's numerous flaws.

    Nothing more than a brilliant idea gone horribly wrong. The chapters are relatively short, uninteresting, and the gameplay just isn't exciting enough to keep you coming back for more. Adding co-op for the sake of having a multiplayer component does not automatically make for a fun game. Harmony of Despair is proof of this. Konami's halfhearted effort does not deserve your money.

    The Cursed Crusade certainly had potential, and if Kylotonn spent more time on the flow and diversity of combat a number of the smaller issues such as the lack of a checkpoint system or stiff ranged gameplay could easily have been overlooked. However the studio decided to add variety through other means, unknowingly underpinning the rest of the game.

    You can see they've really tried to make a great platformer with the co-op mode, and some of the ideas in there are absolutely brilliant; but that's less than a third of an otherwise disappointing game that shouldn't have ever been a full disc release, needed to look a lot better and had to be consistently good, rather than just fun in the platforming sections.

    NeverDead does very little to separate itself from the legion of sub-par, gimmick-tagged titles. The premise of playing as an immortal protagonist who can reassemble parts of his anatomy is likely to catch out a number of curious gamers, but it's a concept that fails to shine amidst a crowd of poor design choices and a complete lack of narrative engagement.

    Wrecked: Revenge Revisited simply isn't a battle racer. Yes, there are elements of the battle racing but this is more a time attack mode with few actual battle racing events. The multiplayer does have some fun in it, but it's only really good if played in short bursts.

    Ninja Gaiden Z is an exceptionally intriguing spin-off in premise alone. The thought of playing as someone who actually hunts the series’ protagonist is original, but the execution just isn’t there.

    For those who aren’t invested in the series, Producing Perfection is a hard-sell, especially to gamers not acclimated to anime/otaku culture. Some of the dialogue is genuinely witty and charming, as is the world of Gamindustri itself, yet tedious concert gameplay and a lack of unique content do little to justify the asking price.

    The animation is basic, the environments look last-generation and the whole game just looks dead, as if it was thrown together by a work-experience lacky at the last minute when SEGA realised they'd forgotten something.

    The gameplay, whilst initially entertaining, quickly becomes tedious and incredibly monotonous after it has been rinsed and repeated over and over again.

    There was huge scope for something here, but we can't help shake the feeling that someone got involved at the wrong stage and changed what could have been an impressive technical example of the PS3's graphics muscle into a rudimentary, almost insultingly basic joystick tester - as a demo it's great, but would have benefited from remaining a demo. Budbrain Megademo, all is forgiven.

    After about an hour of play you've probably seen just about all there is to see. If the variety was there or the price was that of download title then you could probably overlook some of the technical faults. In the end its biggest crime is that it just isn't fun to play.

    Mindjack is a sheer disappointment.

    A massive disappointment. It has all of the elements of a true classic, but ultimately falls short due to poor execution.

    In all honesty if I hadn't have been playing it for review I wouldn't have finished it.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    It's a contemptible step back for a series which always had the fun factor on its side and it might just be enough to kill the entire franchise. This is a perfect example of why it's not always a bad thing when games get cancelled.

    At no point should game feel like a chore, and unfortunately, that's exactly what Okabu is. I don't think I have ever played a game that was so utterly unenjoyable from start to finish. If the tedious gameplay doesn't get to you then the glitches and performance issues will. And while there is a lot of content to be found in Okabu, it doesn't really matter when the game itself just isn't any fun.

    If you always dreamed of being on Who Wants to be a Millionaire but don't care for cash prizes, this is a game for you. If you love multiple choice trivia and don't mind listening to the same stock lines of voice over, delivered without much verve or character, then you'll probably get along with this. If you like quizzes and have a particular desire for wait-your-turn local-only multiplayer with online-only leader boards, then it seems that Millionaire was made for you.

    It may be technologically succinct but in neglecting the needs of solo players and bypassing what makes the car combat genre so engaging, Wheels of Destruction leaves an unmistakably sour taste. If you're gagging for another arena-based car game post-Twisted Metal, we'd strongly recommend hanging around for Psyonix's SARPBC 2.

    This effort has a few interesting ideas and a reasonably accomplished plot, fairly well progressed but it stumbles mechanically over every good idea it has and douses it in some genuinely shocking presentation.

    It's not clear what really happened here. Ice Age: Continental Drift the videogame is a poor reflection on the series, feels underdeveloped and – given the limited amount of actual game on offer – overpriced even at a 'budget' rate of thirty notes.
