In complete contrast to GTA IV, this compilation of 24 popular board and table top games is aimed squarely at a family audience. As you would expect, classics such as Chess, Backgammon, Draughts and Solitaire are all included and look suitably swish, while there's also Snakes and Ladders, Naval Battle (a Battleship clone) and a 3D version of Noughts & Crosses.

Unfortunately, none of the games exhibit anything like the sparkle you'd expect from a cheap Xbox Live title.

While there are no little pieces to lose down the back of the sofa, you'd get more enjoyment from opening a battered box of games that had previously been rotting in the attic. Please note: the PSP version features 20 games and the Wii version a miserly 12.
RATING 2 out of 5
