Aaahhgg! It's games like this that remind me of what my old granny used to say. "Fred," she'd say (she could never remember my name). "Fred, there's nothing like a good arcade game."

She was right. Super Robin Hood is nothing like a good arcade game. It has all the elements but doesn't quite seem to fit together.

You are cast as Robin Hood, rescuing Marion. No surprises there. And for some strange, possibly warped, reason he has to collect squishy bits of human innards.

Technically it's all well up to Codemasters standard (whatever that means). Terrific graphics, good sound FX, smooth animation and well- planned screen layout. What a shame the game's so useless.

Overall: 4/10

Summary: It's so boorrring! I had to strap myself to my rubber keyboard just to keep playing.
