Pef (pounds 39.99 PC CD-ROM and PlayStation)

IN THIS 3D adventure game you are a top martial artist kidnapped and transported to another planet. All you have to do is get home.

The beat-'em-up element involves mastering more than 100 moves. The adventure side is fun but no threat to Tomb Raider.

The game falls down because the controls are not split-second responsive. That means you have to work out an attack carefully and give yourself plenty of time to execute it. Frustrating.

On the plus side, it is a very big game and will take a long time to finish. But it seems rushed and not too polished. Try before you buy.
