    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.

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

    If you hadn't seen the price tag, you'd wonder what all the internet furore had been about. [Issue#45, p.100]

    A perfectly functional motorbike game that might appeal to cast-iron fans, Ride is otherwise a dull, dry, missed opportunity, which totally fails to capture the joy of two wheels. [Issue#125, p.86]

    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]

    God of War minus the imagination, plus inordinate amounts of the colour green. [Issue#74, p.89]

    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]

    The fighting is okay, a few design decisions commendable, but ultimately there is just not enough great game here. Tiny levels with nothing in them? Looks like we are the ones being golden fleeced.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A real mess of ideas that tries hard but just doesn't have what it takes. [Issue 26, p.118]
