    Not anywhere near as good as Streets of Rage 2, which came out 20 years ago. That said, it's fun, and more importantly knows that it's outdated. [Issue#91, p.87]

    An okay celebration of 30 years of Pac-Man's furious assault on the four unluckiest ghosts ever. There are better Pac-related options though. [Issue#110, p.78]

    The violence and humour grate after a while, but this is still diverting enough stuff. [Issue#52, p.88]

    Obviously, if "Fable II" bores you to tears, steer clear, but if there's a chance you'll chase Molyneux's dream, by all means play on. [Issue#37, p.116]

    A competent shooter, but fails to replicate the fun, frantic pace or steadiness its next-gen cousin achieved by quite a way. [Issue#111, p.82]

    If you put in the time, or if you're already proficient with the rules and ways of Magic, there's a lot of fun to be had. [Issue#75, p.101]

    This lacks the depth of an Eets: Chowdown or, of course, a chess title, putting it well down the list of Live Arcade puzzle titles alone. Sigh. [Issue#48, p.99]

    A half-finished game. [Issue#128, p.80]

    Feels closer to a good footballing videogame than the series has for a few years now, but crucially still isn't one. [Issue#64, p.86]

    Fun in doses and has a great presentation, sadly, Tembo falters as Game Freak looked to increase the game length in the most obnoxious way possible. [Issue#128, p.81]

    The flaws are just too much to look past. [Issue#80, p.82]

    It's Pictionary - you either care or you don't. From a technological standpoint, it works well but might prove a bit too pricey for the casual market it's aimed at. [Issue#80, p.86]

    Just lets itself down by not pursuing the artistic angle enough. [Issue#80, p.87]

    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Extremely low on budget and structured as if its developer had spent the last 15 years asleep. [Issue#65, p.90]

    At the most basic level, this just isn't much fun to play. [Issue#83, p.82]

    All missions are set around a basic template, and the whole idea never evolves to the point of having any meat on its bones. [Issue#80, p.103]

    A poor start, cheating middle and so-so end lead only to disappointment, and confusion over what should have been the primary gimmick. [Issue#56, p.84]

    • 63 Metascore

    A triumph of form over function. [Issue#53, p.104]

    There's no sitting on the fence with Final Fantasy XI. It's a game you'll love or hate. Got infinite time? Got infinite patience? Then go for it. Otherwise? Steer clear. [Issue 7, p.94]

    Steep learning curve. [Issue#51, p.93]

    It’s certainly rough around the edges but Murdered’s quirky charm and engaging story will have you playing till its too-quick conclusion.

    A laggy mess online. [Issue#23, p.96]

    Everything's just so interminably dull. [Issue#60, p.106]

    The idea of an FPS in the spirit of Counter-Strike is sound enough, but Rekoil needs to do a lot more than emulate this Valve classic to pull it off.
    • 74 Metascore

    Epic seizure-inducing madness that is the graphics. [Issue#37, p.117]

    Relatively amusing. [Issue#42, p.112]

    It's just about throwing people at stuff. And it's dull. [Issue 18, p.78]

    Flawed, dull and not much to look at, Bullet Witch is an exercise in tedium that own't enrich your life at all. [Issue 18, p.96]

    There's something very addictive about taking a mech and doing the Dynasty Warriors thing. [Issue 26, p.98]

    Brings nothing new to an utterly bloated genre. [Issue#62,p.102]
