    By no means a bad game, but it's lacking in anything to draw you back in or to take the game beyond what Top Spin and Virtua Tennis already do better. [Issue#82, p.90]

    It’s diminishing returns for the Lego series anyway, now amplified by an uninspiring Batman get-up. After this we can’t really get excited about any future Lego games short of one called Lego: Your Childhood.

    There's no denying the rodent's getting a little arthritic in his old age. [Issue#86, p.103]

    Two-player drop-in co-op plus some fun and undemanding levels. The kids will love this and adults could easily kill an hour or so. [Issue#36, p.96]

    Best enjoyed in short bursts - and only then if you can find someone willing to play it with you. [Issue#82, p.103]

    As fun as Choplifter can be, it's difficulty will but off most from making that second fly-by. [Issue#82, p.103]

    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Entertaining almost by default yet diluted like spit in the ocean, the joy of the Guitar Hero series is fast being sequeled away. We should have quality, not quantity. [Issue#48, p.82]

    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]

    • 46 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    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]

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

    • 54 Metascore

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

    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    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.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    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]

    • 78 Metascore

    Not just treading water, but arguably depreciating a little. [Issue#52, p.92]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A valiant effort, but one that is ultimately let down by a series of technical glitches and a depressingly mute community. It is free to play, though. [Issue#124, p.83]

    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.

    It's a joke that remains consistently funny, while still surprising in places. [Issue#124, p.84]

    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]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 52 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    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.
