    Cheers for that M_the_C.

    Good to see Icarian doing so well and topping the reviews “chart” for the month of June. It is a little cracker of a game.

    Also interesting to see that Virtua Tennis is ranked lower than Grand Slam Tennis, as I think the concensus on the forum is the opposite.

    Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen - 53. How sad. :-(

    It’s a strange one this month, almost all of the games fall into the 70-80 bracket. Either developers are becoming better, but don’t have particularly good ideas, or reviewers are becoming apathetic.

    Although it looks a reasonable sized gap, there’s actually only 2% between Virtua Tennis and Grand Slam Tennis. Any other month they would probably have been right next to each other.

    Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen has some quite opposing views, some in the 70’s (there’s that trend again) but others in the 40’s and below. Also, it’s currently exactly the same rating as the previous Transformers Wii game.
