    For a kids game, The Spiderwick Chronicles is a pretty decent effort in providing gamers with some solid adventuring experiences.

    Kingdom Under Fire: Circle of Doom is an average game that will appeal to die hards only, and that's people who just love to level up characters and collect items for personal benefit.

    If you’re thinking of picking up Shrek N Roll you’ve got to take into consideration that you don’t get your 800 points worth. It’s the short single player, the flawed multiplayer, the challenging for the average child difficulty and the shallow game play that bring this game down.

    Sadly the implementation and impact on the player the game has will most likely be overshadowed by the numerous flaws. The lack of replay-ablity of the single player, the omission of playing as Lynch for lone players, the poor graphics, terrible enemy AI, and the mundane Havana levels, really kill the single player experience for me.

    However, the game really does feel like a one trick horse and perhaps relies too heavily on the dismemberment and beheadings rather than more inventive gameplay.

    Upon first sight, and play, this game can be judged quite easily as a bog standard, mediocre, racing frenzy game, any excuse for a bit of chaos.

    Blacksite: Area 51 is a decent game overall, however it feels like a game that is a shooter by numbers; offering very little that we've not seen before in other games.

    I definitely recommend F.E.A.R Files to fans of the first game. Although it might look a little dated, it is packed with more of the intense F.E.A.R. action that fans of the game love.

    Due to a lack of diversity and interest within the party games, the extreme shortness of the competition mode and a lack of options within the ‘options’ screen, I’d be surprised if you play this more than thirty minutes a sitting.

    If you take away all the bad things in this version, and you are still left with the same game as the original.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    I can see that some fans will gain enjoyment, and those gamers tired of the norm, but for my tastes, the appeal of the game was lost pretty early on.

    There simply is not enough "Meat" here to cater for older gamers who undoubtedly will breeze through with their eyes half shut, whilst eating, smoking and watching another TV at the same time.

    All in all, if put into one word this game is bland.

    If you’ve not played a flying game before and have the impression that they are mind numbingly boring with added beeping then perhaps the arcade antics of Blazing Angels 2 could sway you.

    With fantastic story lines, but without the fully realized team system, Warriors Orochi appeals much more to old fans than it does draw in new ones.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Stuntman Ignition, sticks to the same formula while improving the only bad thing about the original and should be at least tried by anyone that isn’t afraid of a little trial and error. It’s just a shame that it won’t appeal to everyone and is let down by its poor graphics and repetitive nature.

    Unfortunately for Street Trace there are just far too many better games coming down the road for it to be able to maintain the multiplayer community it will need to succeed.

    The game offers a very frustrating learning curve but once you pass that you’ll uncover a pretty decent game with a lot of replay value.

    If you like space shooters then Project Sylpheed is well worth a look however due to it's brevity and lack of multiplayer makes the game over too quickly.
    • 52 Metascore

    Everything from the dull campaigns, to the boring “open ended” environments, which really weren’t, No-name Bots I took no pleasure in killing, and timed missions that made me want to scream in frustration.

    Ratatouille has its moments, it will definitely appeal to fans of the film in terms of location and the characters.

    Harry Potter fans will no doubt love Hogwarts that has been lovingly and carefully recreated for us all to gawp at, however the tedium of the repetitive mini-quests and lack lustre battles are a let down.

    Rise of the Silver Surfer offers very little enjoyment, if there is any fun to be drained from this fantastically mediocre game then perhaps the hardcore fans of the Marvel comic books, series or movies may be able to harness their special powers to find some form of fun out of this not so fantastic game.

    Sadly the game doesn’t really reward you for playing like a pro and if you are looking for advanced action based combat a la Ninja Gaiden then you might be a little disappointed.

    The transition to console has worked well and will no doubt garner some new fans; so in this respect the game does well. However will limited appeal outside of Japan I think a lot of gamers will overlook this game and then miss out on something quite unique.

    Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End is a good action-adventure sword swinging romp, which is enjoyable to play and perhaps even more so if you like or have seen the films.

    Shrek The Third is a decent all encompassing adventure action game which features puzzling , platform and fighting elements. It’s certainly an entertaining game but somewhat on the simple side.
    • 67 Metascore

    A fun yet very different Rayman game and in my opinion it’s hit and miss as to whether fans of previous games will enjoy this due to its departure from what is expected. A real Marmite game, you’ll either love or hate it.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    It is a very simple game with little depth in terms of story and characterisation and when it works can produce some genuine wow moments. However the poor controls for vehicles and the repetitive nature of the game coupled with some irritating moments of slowdown present a game that lacks a final polish.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is not a terrible game but it’s obviously aimed more towards children which would explain its lack of difficulty, there isn’t even any difficulty setting to choose from should veteran gamers desire a challenge.
