    The simplicity of the design is where the game really shines. [Oct 2011, p.105]

    • 78 Critic Score
    Lengthy, clever, and gripping. It's nice to have a decent point and click adventure around. It's been too long. [Oct 2011, p.105]

    • 68 Critic Score
    Stuck halfway between the arcade slots and po-faced flight simulation, and in the process takes itself far too seriously. [Oct 2011, p.105]

    For the jaded gamer with a few hours to spare it's like a zen garden for the soul. [Oct 2011, p.104]

    • 85 Critic Score
    One of the best physics puzzle games out there. A clever game and one devoid of pretension. [Oct 2011, p.104]

    It's ugly, clunky and stilted, but channel your psychotic Sam Fisher and you'll find some fun. [Oct 2011, p.103]

    • 83 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    An accomplished, silly and engaging game of a genre that's woefully under-used. [Feb 2007, p.69]

    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Puts its core mechanics before everything else and with good reason - they're as near-perfect as we're ever going to get. [Sept 2011, p.102]

    • 64 Critic Score
    Despite its fantastic visualisation of Wonderland, repetitive gameplay means it fails to muster a chortle. [Sept 2011, p.100]

    A game destined to be forgotten. [Sept 2011, p.98]

    • 80 Critic Score
    There are times when this can be offensively unimaginative, but the combat and co-op are too good to ignore. [Sept 2011, p.96]

    • 77 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    A budget game that delivers a budget experience. [Aug 2011, p.102]
    • PC Format
    • 75 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    A competent example of a PC port and of an RPG, but its obsessions with consumerism dampens the adventure. [Aug 2011, p.100]

    • 54 Metascore
    • 69 Critic Score
    A love letter to PC gaming, scrawled in crayon by an alcoholic bigot. Wait for the bargain bin to say goodbye to Duke. [Aug 2011, p.98]

    Not quite the inspired sequel we had all hoped for, but there's still enough in DiRT 3 to bring the fans back. [Aug 2011, p.96]

    Offers great weapons, a great destruction model...and not enough ways to have fun with them. [July 2011, p.94]

    A hilarious slice of gaming glory. [July 2011, p.92]

    Flawed brawling in a beautiful world you never quite get to explore. [July 2011, p.90]

    Good hack 'n' slash mechanics are let down by a lack of reasons to care about the action and keep heading back into battle. [June 2011, p.90]

    RPG fans will cry. [June 2011, p.86]

    Just as serving a delicious cheesecake on a bed of rotten mackerel kills the appetite, so OpFlash: Red River turns the stomach with its nauseating intro. No matter how appealing the main event might be, you just can't get that image out of your head.

    Great sim thrills with EA's trademark slick presentation. [May 2011, p.94]

    A damp squib, really. The single player is far too short and the multiplayer only occasionally rises above the average. [May 2011, p.90]

    Doesn't fix what ain't broke; but does tweaks on an excellent formula to produce the best post WoW MMO so far. [May 2011, p.88]
    • PC Format
    • 86 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    As human mercenary enemies make way for the dreaded aliens, the AI suffers a brain haemorrhage and the game needs to distract you with spectacular visual events to distract you from your stand and shoot enemies. It's as good as any recent shooter at epic moments and gun-toting drama, but it feels a little shallow once you realise how remedial the all-conquering alien force actually are.

    Immense fun, very addictive. [Apr 2011, p.104]
