    It's a solid puzzle game that doesn't do anything very wrong. Sadly, nor does it do anything we haven't seen before, and at thirty notes you'd be much better off with top PSP puzzler "Lumines." [July 2006, p.108]

    Zettai 2 strains under the weight of its own ambition, but is a cracking achievement nonetheless... We'd far rather a game reached for the stars and didn't quite make it than was happy to drown in the seas of sameyness. [JPN Import; Aug 2006, p.70]

    • 40 Critic Score
    While there are 40 titles on offer, this ultimately weak collection of C-list games will excite only the most crazed retro mentalist. Not us, then. [Apr 2006, p.52]

    There doesn't seem to be as much to learn this time and feels more like a simple update than usual. Still, "WE 10" is the best footie game around, no contest. [JPN Import; July 2006, p.86]

    What a run RPGs are on at the moment - "Dragon Quest VIII," "Kingdom Hearts 2," and now Rogue Galaxy, which just about tops them all. Wondrous and sublime. [JPN Import; Apr 2006, p.54]

    As an expansion of you SingStar library, this is arguably more essential than "80s" and "Popworld," depending on who your friends are. If only it worked with a guitar. [May 2006, p.57]

    FFXII is a gargantuan, gorgeous game with a gripping plot, likeable characters and an interesting new combat system that injects some much-needed life into the series. Wonderful. [JPN Import; June 2006, p.44]

    Looking for something exciting in Eagle Eye Golf is like searching for needle in a particularly needle-free haystack. [Aug 2006, p.75]

    A competent racer that stands out from the crowd by means of an interesting team race mode. Worth a look if you fancy a driving game with a difference. [Apr 2006, p.52]

    A joy to play. Whether you're restoring nature, battling enemies or exploring the Japanese countryside, Okami is perhaps the most beautiful game on PS2. [JPN Import; July 2006, p.94]
    • PSM2 Magazine UK
    • 59 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    Worryingly disturbing, but just as worryingly patchy to play. A masterpiece of oddness that makes for a malnourished and sluggish video game. [JPN Import; June 2006, p.62]

    • 83 Metascore

    The happiest game on PSP will cheer you up to no end. It's simple to pick up and play and equally hard to put down. This is the strongest handheld title we've played, well, ever. [July 2006, p.100]
    • PSM2 Magazine UK
    • 56 Metascore
    • 62 Critic Score
    Not as good as a regular "Monkey Ball" game would've been. The adventure stuff feels tacked-on and the PSP's rubbish analogue stick makes control a bit of a nightmare. [July 2006, p.110]

    • 57 Metascore

    Terrible. Oveblown, opportunistic nonsense. If you're a FFVII fan avoid Dirge of Cerebrus completely - it'll only sully your memories. [JPN Import; June 2006, p.68]

    • 73 Metascore
    • 81 Critic Score
    A bigger, slightly better sequel that's more accessible and over-the-top but just as random in terms of its carnage. It'll drive you bonkers if you've no patience. [Aug 2006, p.56]

    • 53 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    A tragic waste of one of gaming's more loveable franchises, Adventure takes the Monkey Ball concept and employs it in a manner to which it just isn't suited. [Aug 2006, p.58]

    • 64 Metascore

    Save it for multi-player and you'll have a lot of fun - but there are too many niggles to make it a classic. [Aug 2006, p.54]

    Wi-Fi multi-player is fun, but play on your own and you'll soon slip into a slumber. [Aug 2006, p.82]

    It sounds cliched, but this is easy to pick up and seriously hard to put down. There's always plenty going on and you'll be hooked for hours on end. Excellent warmongering action. [Aug 2006, p.81]
    • PSM2 Magazine UK
    • 67 Metascore
    • 64 Critic Score
    Identical to the PS2 version in content but the PSP's limitations really pick away at the polish revealing something far less beautiful. A disappointment, all told. [June 2006, p.70]
    • PSM2 Magazine UK
    • 73 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Always enjoyable and never dull. It might lack polish in some areas but it makes up for it with loads of character and plenty of kick-ass, laugh-out-loud aggression. [June 2006, p.52]
    • PSM2 Magazine UK
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A decent collection, but they may as well have left "SFA" and "SFA2" out because "SFA3" is better than both of them combined. The best Street Fighter experience on PS2. [Aug 2006, p.68]

    It does capture the flavour of the And1 competition. [Aug 2006, p.72]

    The simple colours, aliens and landscapes have rarely looked better than on PSP. [June 2006, p.78]

    Though LCS is photocopied from PSP, there's more here than most PS2 games. [Aug 2006, p.50]

    Even compared to previous Hitman games, Blood Money feels focused, fresh and utterly compelling. You owe it to yourself to play this. [July 2006, p.66]
    • PSM2 Magazine UK
    • 52 Metascore
    • 61 Critic Score
    A decent ocean adventure with bite, but distracting as it is, it's unlikely to set up a Jaws: Unleashed 2, let alone a Jaws IV: The Revenge. [Aug 2006, p.64]
    • PSM2 Magazine UK
    • 71 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    A surprise package that's rammed with action all the way through. It's a little easy to complete, but don't let that put you off this unexpected gem. [June 2006, p.58]
    • PSM2 Magazine UK
    • 71 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    An epic RPG quest that rewards patience. It's slow-paced, but once you're strong enough to tackle the bigger monsters it really shines. Just don't expect anything ground-breaking. [June 2006, p.81]
    • PSM2 Magazine UK
    • 72 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    It's another very good, but not great, FIFA. Did you really expect anything else? [July 2006, p.104]
