    While the control system is straightforward to pick up, it can also be ultimately frustrating - in fact, annoying enough to take a sparkle off the otherwise solid and enjoyable gameplay.

    A fantastic sequel.

    Puts a futuristic twist in the high tech tale but is its storyline constructed like a Chicken Royale or a piece of nouvelle cuisine?

    A stunning achievement.

    Captivating.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A game built on solid gameplay mechanics featuring fast-paced exploding action, that delivers nothing but fun.

    Unfortunately, we didn't quite get the sensation of frantic frustration and glory we usually do with pinball games.

    Its plot is dramatic and ambitious, its gameplay involving, and it features some absolutely fantastic locations.

    If you're looking for a big gun and a legion of monsters to use it on, then Serious Sam's got what you need, with much prettier graphics than "Doom."

    A bad game. Bad deeds deserve punishment, so I vote to have the entire Army Men development team plastifricated for unleashing this "game" onto the world.

    They've apparently tried to recapture the magic of "StarCraft," but in this case the spell has fizzled.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An interesting blend of genres that never really delivers a full-featured strategy game.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A fun hack-and-slash dungeon romp, with a good dose of RPG thrown in.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Strikes a near perfect balance between solid RTS gameplay with an epic, fantasy storyline.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A game that has so seriously squashed the competition that it's almost laughable.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's simply too frenetic in spots for some tastes. Still, that's a fairly minor quibble with what is undoubtedly one of the more enjoyable strategy offerings of the year thus far.

    Truly a gem of a game...The only problem I have with Onimusha is that it's a little too short. You can complete the adventure with a game time of five to six hours.

    A solid title, featuring a believable and interesting storyline, plenty of missions to work through, and even good graphics. However, it can get very tedious at times, testing the patience of the most tolerant of gamers.

    There are very bad collision problems with the ball and the fielder. I can't explain how frustrating it is for a player to catch a ball that is seven feet away from his glove.

    Even more impressive than the original, offering richer gameplay, deformable terrain, real-time lighting, new zoom capability, and a host of other improvements that puts TMP at the top of the crowded RTS genre.

    It would have been much easier to justify a purchase if Battle for Naboo was released closer to a budget price.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Pretty to watch, but a real bore to play, and when it's not boring, it's frustrating. Not a good mix.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    The latest release in this hopelessly unrealistic arcade series that just fell yet another notch on the realism scale.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    By far the most realistic golf game to date and should be snapped up even by those with a vague interest in the game.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The soundtrack ranks as one of the most impressive to date. Mixing bass-thumping hip-hop grooves with epic, tension-building in-race vibes, it's well worth cranking up the volume for a fully engrossing driving experience.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    As a single player game it can become pretty infuriating having to put up with the computer AI.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A spooky and enthralling FPS, [but] the lack of multiplayer is somewhat like jumping into a Ferrari, then sticking to the speed limit.
    • 65 Metascore

    If you like the humour in the Farrelly films or if you're partial to "Tom and Jerry" cartoons you will love Stupid Invaders.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    For all the great things this game has going for it, longevity is its weakness. With only 14 real missions, each of which able to be completed in less then ten minutes, there's just not much game for your money.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Short.
