    Steer clear. [Issue#64, p.103]

    A game this short and shallow should really be ignored. There is nothing original, compelling or even that new and it will join the ever-growing pile of rubbish movie tie-ins.

    What's good is lifted, what's new is paper-thin. [Issue#32, p.118]

    There's a brave idea here in mixing two different mediums together, but the execution is lacking, particularly with the questionable Kinect controls. [Issue#120, p.86]

    Things couldn't get more generic unless there was somehow stealth, crates and a space marine superhero involved. [Issue#32, p.117]

    The fighting and climbing become exercises in frustration, and there isn't enough depth here. [Issue#83, p.100]

    Suffers from a variety of problems that will mean even racing fanatics and aficionados of the depicted sport itself will struggle to enjoy it. [Issue#57, p.97]

    Controls that are either to broken or too difficult to use. [Issue#54, p.84]

    Very few redeeming features can pull SA back from the brink of feeling more like a half finished game with unforgiving controls. It will leave you with blisters, but not the good kind.

    Rich in ideas yet terrible at executing them, Yaiba picks up all the things people hated about recent Ninja Gaiden games and just runs with them.

    He's rubbish at flying and all his weapons are completely unbalanced. [Issue#33, p.92]

    Basically, Bionicle Heroes completely fails to engage us on any level. [Issue 14, p.84]

    At a whopping price, this is one game worth missing out on. [Issue#54, p.105]

    Sadly, War World holds your attention about as long as a paperclip and a Post-It note. [Issue#39]

    An 18-rated game made for 13-year-olds, and yet it is the gameplay that is the biggest disappointment. [Issue#74, p.82]

    Not atrocious but lacks any sense of originality and is far too tedious. [Issue#46, p.87]

    A typical videogame tie-in that will last no longer in the public's memory than the film. Play it if you must, but don't say we didn't tell you so. [Issue#60, p.99]

    When it comes down to it, Crashed Ice isn't much more than an extra bit of advertising for Red Bull's own tournament. [Issue#94, p.82]
