    Blackwater is a better use of Kinect controls than most, but ultimately there are too many rough edges, and not enough of a game here. [Issue#79, p.88]

    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]

    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]

    There's a crude leveling system. [Issue #81, p.103]

    A great concept with potential, torn to pieces by bland shooting, horrid dialogue and frustrating design. Swordplay can be fun but there's little else to enjoy. [Issue#82, p.88]

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

    As an old-school shooter, Earth Defense Force has much more fun to offer. [Issue#84, p.84]

    None of it feels much like Resident Evil. [Issue#84, p.85]

    It just isn't particularly good. [Issue#84, p.86]

    A cynical package that doesn't do the Star Wars franchise any justice whatsoever. [Issue#85, p.92]

    A shooter that's about as "meh" as you can get. [Issue#86, p.87]

    Vaguely enjoyable. [Issue#86, p.101]

    Competent, if a little aged, but also an excellent sedative. [Issue#87, p.85]

    Techland has overlooked the fundamentals. A shoddy, albeit lightning-fast, racer. [Issue#87, p.88]

    Gets very repetitive. [Issue#88, p.83]

    Too easy, too short and too luck-based. [Issue#88, p.87]

    Frustrating. [Issue#89,p.82]

    It might be better than Risen, but Dark Waters is constrained by its PC roots and hampered by inconsistent design and a truly awful engine. [Issue#89,p.84]

    You can ignore the smoke and mirrors for a while, but there's just no substance. [Issue#91, p.64]

    Voice acting's okay. [Issue#91, p.79]

    This isn't a good game, but it's one that will grow on you after a few hours. [Issue#91, p.89]

    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Okay in short bursts, but there's no reason to play single-player. A huge missed opportunity on EA's part and another year it won't be taking COD's crown. [Issue#92, p.78]

    While it attempts to provide an accessible strategic space challenge, Planets Under Attack is sucked into a black hole instead. [Issue#93, p.86]

    Only worth it for a nostalgia trip and for the flawless netcode. [Issue#94, p.85]

    It’s not all bad. Through the slow-boil of falling standards, sometimes we found ourselves not hating it as much we probably should have and, occasionally, there were glimpses of what Aliens: Colonial Marines could have been, should have been. It’s best at being an intense shooter, but sadly that intensity is all too rare.

    Has far too many rough edges and faults to come close to Firaxis' brilliance. [Issue#95, p.82]

    Will struggle to hold the attention of anyone that didn't hammer these games back in the day. [May 2013, p.88]

    You'll wonder why you didn't just stick with multiplayer greats like Bomberman. [May 2013, p.89]

    There are good ideas here, but too much bogging them down. [Issue#97, p.66]
