    One for the patient and curious. [Issue#73, p.100]

    • 50 Critic Score
    Horrible tutorials. [Issue#55, p.92]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Competent, if a little aged, but also an excellent sedative. [Issue#87, p.85]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 35 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A disappointing shooter that has a few good ideas but can't implement them well enough to make it stand out from a very large crowd. [Issue#114, p.79]
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It's still got a long way to go, but Shred is a step in the right direction. [Issue#66, p.91]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Techland has overlooked the fundamentals. A shoddy, albeit lightning-fast, racer. [Issue#87, p.88]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A cynical package that doesn't do the Star Wars franchise any justice whatsoever. [Issue#85, p.92]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Put simply, it works exactly how you'd expect a tech demo for touch screen to work when the touch screen's taken away. [Issue#39]

    • 70 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Not taking full advantage of Kinect is unforgivable. [Issue#118, p.81]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A depressingly mundane FPS, never once striving for greatness and seemingly happy to settle for faceless mediocrity. Another letdown when we hoped for so much more. [Apr 2008, p.86]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 72 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Paris shows some promise, but it's hard to enjoy a game when it's so nauseating, even if it does suggest a return to the series' best ideas. Maybe next year. [Issue#119, p.65]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 66 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    You'd have to love F.E.A.R. in a way that blinds you to the cynical but no doubt cost-effective repetition on offer here. Not worthy of a full release. [Issue 27, p.94]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    You're better off looking elsewhere. [Issue#53, p.105]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    As kids’ games go this is a step in the right direction but too many of the old problems raise their ugly head, not that the kids will notice mind you.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Somehow better with a second overpowered character by your side. [Issue#63, p.88]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 43 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Definitely greater than the some of its parts, which is annoying as it’s technically so flawed and without effort. You’ve still got to be a fan, though.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A decent distraction for a short time, Costume Quest 2 unfortunately soon becomes a chore. Fortunately, it doesn't outstay its welcome by too much. [Issue#119, p.82]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    This is clearly for fans of the television creation. [Issue#77, p.103]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 66 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The vertical scrolling and relentless shooting become tired and boring very quickly. [Issue#35, p.114]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 73 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The insane difficulty feels like a horrible joke. [Issue#63, p.102]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Pretty dull. [Issue#60, p.107]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Fantastic production values and a great concept let down by a lack of checkpoints, dull art direction and horribly repetitive, shallow gameplay. What a shamefully wasted opportunity. [Issue # 11, p.88]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Well-designed maps, and new weapons down in a sea of technical problems, for which there seems to be no solution. [Issue#112, p.95]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 43 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It's not disastrous, but it is bland. [Issue#121, p.87]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 39 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It's very much let down by repetitive play. [Issue#78, p.85]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 72 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Just about adequate, but RACE Pro feels about five years old in places. It will certainly get buried beneath the existing pile of cracking 360 racing titles of all stripes and colours, and deservedly so.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Aficionados will want to stay well clear. [Issue#78, p.86]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It's just a shame that the left analogue stick is no substitution for the original arcade trackball. [Issue#24, p.101]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The tracks are fantastic, but the bare bones package is upsetting. If this had been DLC we’d be all over it, but as it stands, it falls quite short of expectations.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Not an entirely awful virtual re-creation of the beautiful game. [Issue#61, p.95]
