    A title revered for its looks in the years gone by both ages badly and succumbs to design logic issues... [Issue#65, p.105]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Too few varieties of enemy are included, sporting little variance of attack approach, to entertain anything other than your base reflexes. [Issue#71, p.102]

    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Our advice is to simply move onto the next review before the retro buffs come back with their pixelated pitchforks and limp fist-waving to show their anger, the crazy bastards. [Issue 15, p.116]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A shooter that's about as "meh" as you can get. [Issue#86, p.87]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A solid enough conversion. [Issue#46, p.101]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Lacking the intensity and lavish budget of a "Need for Speed." [Issue#25, p.101]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Much slower and less action-packed than we'd hoped - plus, it doesn't even look that much like a next-gen game. The online mode needs to be awesome if there's any hope for this one. [Issue 9, p.80]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Feels like an uphill climb against the odds. [Issue#6, p.120]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 81 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    No game, regardless of what it may be, can try and get away with developing one level and then replicating it over the course of 12 hours. A massive shame, because there are some truly breathtaking elements. [Issue 27, p.82]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Undeniably a good concept spoiled. [Issue#53, p.95]

    The best elements of Heroes Over Europe can only ever be described as 'meh', while the worst will make you want to rip out your own hair. [Issue#51, p.92]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It's repetitive. [Issue#5, p.120]

    • 73 Metascore

    While it can be commended for a bold mix of strategy and action, Midway doesn't really pull of either with much conviction, leaving a somewhat unsatisfying experienice. [Issue 17, p.90]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Vaguely enjoyable. [Issue#86, p.101]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    You'd have to be really fanboyish to get some enjoyment out of this. [Issue#31, p.88]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    At 800 points, there are at least three or four puzzlers on Live that should definitely precede this. [Issue#30, p.120]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    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]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Certainly not high art, but Saw II has its moments, and could be worth a look for someone after a couple of nights worth of fairly brainless entertainment. [Issue#65, p.89]

    • 47 Metascore

    It's just boring. [Issue 12, p.116]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 87 Metascore

    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]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Not bad. [Issue#53, p.105]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 70 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A dull, listless experience that only offers a challenge due to artificially imposed constraints. Irritating stuff on dual fronts, then. [Issue#56, p.105]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 73 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Better than expected, but we weren't expecting much. With some tightening, Pro Evo vs. Fifa could be close next year. [Issue 13, p.91]

    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Frustration and grind are the most prominent attributes. [Issue#69, p.84]

    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The Arcania series makes its debut on consoles, and we're unimpressed to say the least - clichéd story, poor graphics and bordering on broken. [Issue#65, p.88

    • 69 Metascore

    If you don't play Section 8 online, it's value for money is more than halved. [Issue#50, p.90]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 69 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    With cliche after cliche dropped all over a poorly told story, there's not much to like if you want something new. [Issue#52, p.93]
    • X-ONE Magazine UK
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Some entertaining new challenges and excellent use of physics, but we simply can’t recommend it at this price, nor can we find justification for it.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    A short and throwaway campaign, held together with repetitive combat, Mindjack is, just another by-the-numbers shooter to add on top of the pile. [Issue#69, p.89]
