    No matter how advanced the combo system, that constant button-pounding action begins to grate, especially since there's no co-op mode (which would have rocked). But it's testament to Conan's spark that the sheer fun of the execution moves and combos will pull you through the bad times.

    Starts off bravely but gives way to 'fraidy cat design. Balls of steel, knob of butter. [June 2008, p.86]

    The brainy who apply will find a lot to like in the conundrums. [Dec 2011, p.112]

    You'll feel frustration nearly as much as exhilaration, but the concept shines through. [Apr 2011, p.96]

    A superb technical showcase, but the engine will be put to bolder use in time. [June 2011, p.85]

    A solid romp, but Dante's Inferno fails to live up to its promise as EA's Next Big Thing. [Apr 2010, p.87]

    Black Box have taken little in the way of risks but it's not faultless - the streets can feel quite empty (depending on race type) and the framerate can get a bit juddery. But you can't say that EA hasn't given us what we asked for.

    Should have been this good the first time out. [Feb 2011, p.104]

    Technically messy but definitely likeable. It's fun, satisfying, and silly schlock-horror.

    A slightly smaller game would have been preferable to one padded out with Werehog.

    As much as Alone In The Dark deserves to be criticised for its problems, it equally deserves to be lavished with praise for some outstanding ideas and set-pieces. A gracious failure, AITD should stand as a lesson for other developers to see what they should be striving for.

    A defiantly old school shooter that bleeds imagination, but feels stuck in the past. [Sept 2011, p.81]
    • Xbox World 360 Magazine UK
    • 77 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    Gleefully naff fun, bristling with good ideas, but it never feels like a 360 game. [Jan 2009, p.71]

    One of the best kids games on 360 but, unusually for Pixar, with little grown-up appeal. [Oct 2010, p.99]

    It's still cheaper than a month at Fitness First. [Oct 2011, p.85]

    A very welcome strategic slant to the genre. [June 2009, p.70]

    Finally a lag-free online shooter! A shame it comes at the expense of the Campaign.

    The series' next gen debut plays it safe, but will doubtless charm the pants off fans. [Aug 2009, p.80]
    • 73 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    A beautiful little game; just a shame that everything is so overly familiar.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    The infrastructure is definitely in place for a corker of a kickabout but the important thing - that intangible soul - is still frustratingly missing.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    A short campaign which is never spectacular and never very clever, but always solid enough. [Feb 2011, p.99]

    An enjoyable and solidly designed Nati-fragger, but one with a series of small niggles. [Nov 2007, p.82]

    Shabby around the edges - but that only adds to the charm of this daft playground. [Dec 2008, p.86]

    Brilliant bloodbath or bizarro bollocks? Both, actually. Terrible, superb and weird. [Nov 2010, p.90]

    Undoubtedly the best tennis game on 360 featuring Sonic. Except for... no, this is the best.

    It won't scare you, but Jericho is an enjoyably slick and bloody shoot-'em-up. [Dec 2007, p.75]
    • Xbox World 360 Magazine UK
    • 77 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    Top quality grinworthy action only slightly marred by haste. Not just for the kids. [May 2011, p.90]

    A solid debut, though the package will be a little over reliant on the community for many. [Jan 2011, p.88]

    • 72 Critic Score
    It's good, but not good enough - proving the loudest car on the grid is rarely the healthiest. [July 2010, p.88]
    • Xbox World 360 Magazine UK
    • 63 Metascore
    • 71 Critic Score
    A bit hamstrung by its need to tease. [Aug 2011, p.101]
