    If you've got the original, keep your virtual wallet firmly shut. If you haven't, just buy the original Uno. [Issue#46, p.101]

    Just a competent exploratory shooter spoiled by interaction with the pad. [Issue#38, p.115]

    Kinect actually works. [Issue#89,p.88]

    While it doesn't do anything wrong, it's impossible to take the plot seriously. [Issue#66, p.89]

    Sonic's latest adventure fails yet again to live up to the delight and fast-paced action we grew with, mostly due to the structure of the challenges. Silver's pretty cool, though. [Issue 14, p.82]

    Sonic & All-Stars Racing is easily the better game. [Issue#93, p.80]

    If you're a fan of side-scrolling shooters, this offering is at least a little visually different. [Issue#41, p.113]

    Ultimately, though, there's just not enough to do. [Issue#69, p.85]

    Not nearly brave or daring enough, though. [Issue#69, p.86]

    The move to a 2.5D style isn’t exactly sloppy so much as unimaginative and while it entertains in bursts, it’s too often a dull addition to the series.

    Poor dialogue and slightly dated graphics are made up for by thumping combat and comic battles. [Issue#30, p.92]

    Infinite has squeezed far more than it has a right to out of simple geometric shapes. [Issue#46, p.101]

    If only the single player campaign was more entertaining. [Issue#29, p.117]

    One for devoted aficionados of "bullet hell" only. [Issue#69, p.88]

    Not just treading water, but arguably depreciating a little. [Issue#52, p.92]

    Lococycle is full of Twisted Pixel’s wacky brand of humour and is animated excellently, but the limited gameplay just holds it back from being a must-have.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    We so wanted to like this game but it kept slapping us in the face with bad controls, repetitive puzzles and the annoying inventory. [Issue#34]

    30 Years of Wrestlemania is brilliant but that aside, this is exactly the same WWE sequel you would have expected from the house of THQ. [Issue#105, p.86]

    Yes, it should have been a Live Arcade release, but its price, plethora of game modes and the fact that the original tune is included, means puzzle fans should definitely give it a whirl. [Issue#20, p.92]

    Pid
    PID's all-consuming repetitiveness wears thin extremely quickly. [Issue#93, p.84]

    At a cheaper price, Crimson Dragon would be a little more acceptable; although it’s enjoyable at its core, there are few redeeming features.

    Sadly, Brothers In Arms: Hell’s Highway looks destined to become yet another also-ran in the great yuletide arms race of 2008. It may hold your attention for a while but don’t get your hopes up.

    It all boils down to how fussy you are about technical shortcomings, really. [Issue#68, p.84]

    We'd love to see a sequel that builds on the cool mechanics that the game already boasts. [Issue#69, p.99]

    A classic waste of time, in more than one sense. [Issue#23, p.96]

    Too many customisation options. [Issue#122, p.78]

    It's just a shame that it technically can't match up to its really lofty ambitions. [Issue#100, p.86]

    There are some inventive puzzles, but don't expect anything revolutionary. [Issue#122, p.84]
