    The cute visual style of the cutscenes aside, the story mode is just plain ugly...Basic at best, boring at worst. [Issue#152, p.86]

    Though its story lacks the same emotional punch as its predecessor, this sequel is certainly still worth getting tangled up in either alone or with a friend. [Issue#152, p.86]

    Playing more as a meditative experience that doesn't outstay its welcome, this is an ascent you will make more than once. [Issue#152, p.86]

    When the story kicks into gear, it's well worth the time as it's one of the most thrilling visual novels on the system. [Issue#152, p.90]

    Played solo, frustration can be the dominant emotion you feel, played with others, it can lead to colorful language in the best possible way. [Issue#152, p.90]

    A charming and accessible rhythm game that's easy to pour lots of time into. Fans of Vocaloid music in particular should give this one a look. [Issue#152, p.90]

    Zooming around highways, waterways, and skyways is a real blast, despite some wonky vehicle physics. And just soaring through the air is a soothing experience. [Issue#152, p.75]

    It's not the best game in the Lego series, but there's still plenty to enjoy here. A great gift for any fan of The Incredibles, even if some elements are below Parr. [Issue#152, p.78]

    A fussy but enjoyable slice of strategy that serves up the very best dinosaurs in PlayStation history. Mr. Hammond, consider your park endorsed. [Issue#152, p.83]

    Like a puzzle world mini-GTA 2 where failure can be as much fun as success, Mugsters is a shot in the arm of original thinking. All in all, a minor work of genius. [Issue#152, p.80]

    A very well-made motocross game that is disappointingly familiar, but thanks to the new physics and better movement of bikes and riders, it's still a class act. [Issue#152, p.87]

    A remaster rather than a new game - a Now That's What I Call Puzzling of classic skins and tracks - this is still one of PS4's premiere puzzlers. [Issue#152, p.93]

    This JRPG needs a few more lessons before it'll be concert ready. Lacking the tightness it needs, it's not quite the rising star it hopes to be, but it's still endearing. [Issue#152, p.91]

    What's here, while less fully formed in some areas than others, is still an impressive show from a developer working more or less alone. [Issue#152, p.79]

    The Walker feels like a first-gen PS VR release compared to where devs are now taking the technology. If you can look past the dated design you'll have some fun. [Issue#152, p.92]

    Stuffed with clever, creative ideas and brilliant weapons, this challenging sci-fi horror is structured perfectly for PS VR. If you've got the nerve - and the stomach to match - it's a must. [Issue#152, p.88]

    Its necessary backtracking may bug you occasionally but the joyful core of its being will bring a smile to the lips of even the most stoic. [Issue#151, p.85]

    Awkward at times, the developer's ambition is obvious but the effort never quite comes to fruition. In other words, it doesn't suck but it lacks bite. [Issue#151, p.81]

    As big a letdown as Tim Henman's efforts at Wimbledon, it does a huge disservice to Top Spin's legacy. No amount of Pimm's should sanction you buying this. [Issue#151, p.96]

    You may have played them before, but they're still relevant, and being able to play arcade-perfect Street Fighter III: Third Strike, with ranked online play, shouldn't be missed. [Issue#151, p.95]

    It's short, but Gorogoa sticks around exactly as long as it needs to. Little else out there has such satisfying eureka moments. [Issue#151, p.97]

    A bright, invigorating spin on the arcade racer with a few foundational issues it never quite manages to overcome, Onrush's fizzy free-for-alls are best enjoyed in small doses. [Issue#151, p.91]

    • 66 Metascore

    It's not a disaster by any means, but the predictable, methodical racing is rather dull, and the new engine simply isn't running as well as the old one. [Issue#151, p.93]

    Dark Souls Remastered is more or less the same game from back in 2011, but what's remarkable is just how incredible it still is to play, despite all the later imitators. An essential RPG. [Issue#151, p.86]

    Despite its simplicity Cross Tag Battle still delivers finely balanced, fast fights. [Issue#151, p.94]

    The colour coding of the environment is phenomenal, meaning a lot can be going on from screen to screen without feeling too busy. [Issue#151, p.94]

    • 60 Critic Score
    It's hard to find a match online, and offline the game shows its age with a stuttering framerate, long load times, and a drop in texture detail when the screen fills with enemies. [Issue#151, p.94]
    • Playstation Official Magazine UK
    • 65 Metascore

    Mostly enjoyable game that prolongs things by forcing you to revisit levels; levels that aren't compelling enough to withstand repeated visits. [Issue#151, p.88]

    Despite a few dodgy accents, Omensight sounds decent and looks even better. [Issue#151, p.88]

    • 60 Critic Score
    While action is thin on the ground and the performances gave me flashback to my Drama GCSE, I enjoyed my time on the OPM sofa staring at Doctor Dekker's couch, refreshed by its willingness to lean in so intently to its own silliness and B-movie aesthetic. [Issue#151, p.88]
