    New modes and better motion controls make it an improvement over its predecessor; just don't count on it holding your attention. [Issue#124, p.88]

    • 60 Critic Score
    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.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    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]

    The gameplay is the only part it gets right. [Issue#122, p.77]

    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A classic waste of time, in more than one sense. [Issue#23, p.96]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 71 Metascore

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

    The novelty wears thin. [Issue#122, p.82]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's just a shame that it technically can't match up to its really lofty ambitions. [Issue#100, p.86]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    There are some inventive puzzles, but don't expect anything revolutionary. [Issue#122, p.84]

    By the end of the game, you'll be questioning your sanity. [Issue#101, p.78]

    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    While the campaign is really good fun and the brutal tackles are definitely a highlight, the graphics are really poor and the gameplay is too shallow to make a lasting impact.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A simple way to describe complicated combat provides mild enjoyment, but that's contrasted by long engagements and a sense that you're flying detailed toys bought from a comic shop. [Issue 15, p.86]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 49 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The control system completely alters the game. This might disappoint fans, but we prefer it. [Issue#92, p.86]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 55 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    That price tag is the modern-day equivalent of hari-kiri, minus the blood and honour. Which is a real shame because, given how much fun Monster Madness proves to be when four of you are carving up critters, it deserves so much better. An extra mark when the price drops. [Issue 19, p.84]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's straightforward, meaty gameplay, but the lack of multiplayer feels a little brain-dead. [Issue#92, p.87]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's a fun alternative to Lips, but Rapstar is let down by a limited amount of content and bland presentation. [Issue#66, p.84]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Distinctly average, and aside from a few interesting online elements there's little to keep you coming back for more after your first few hours of gameplay. [Issue#104, p.84]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Although matters are predictably brief, control proves as accurate as it is satisfying. [Issue#68, p.101]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    This is easily the most accessible title in the 360's library, and anyone with even the slightest interest in the movie world will find themselves hooked. [Issue 27, p.93]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 81 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The first truly decent wrestling game on the Xbox format but it's marred by two rather massive flaws that really effect how the game plays. If they weren't there, it'd score much higher. [Issue 14, p.80]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 40 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A little bit ropey. [Issue#52, p.104]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Better suited to nostalgic gamers than newcomers. [Issue#115, p.84]

    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    There's a good trading card game here, even if you need to figure it out solo. [Issue#115, p.87]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Nier is ambitious and delightfully crass but hits too many lows and dull points to climb higher than it has. Definitely worth a look if the more original side of gaming is your thing. [Issue#60, p.99]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 80 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    No one likes finding secret hidden stuff anymore. This is 2006. [Issue 10, p.106]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 77 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A novel idea and clever piece of kit, but indecision on whether it's a videogame or learning tool is a downfall, along with its confusing bespoke notation method. [Issue#91, p.82]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    We wish the gameplay had been polished up as much as the graphics. [Issue#91, p.85]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Only a few niggles and some insane physics pull the experience down. [Issue#56, p.89]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Real golfers will love the challenge, and the course design feature is a trump card. However, it won't give the average user much of a buzz. [Issue#116, p.83]
