  1. Despite Pop Island's way too simplistic design, it oozes charm and is wonderfully silly fun.
  2. 80
    Pop Island is rather like a multiplayer battle-only version of Mario Kart, but with crazy animal characters instead!
  3. Not only does the game look and sound amazing for a DSiWare release, but it's so simple to pick up and play that you'll find yourself diving in and having fun in almost no time.
  4. Five dollars for a game you can share and play with up to eight friends is a small price to pay, especially when it's this fun!
  5. 75
    Single player's a good challenge, but it's all about the multiplayer. And when you get eight players competing for flags the game just gets crazy.
  6. 75
    Pop Island is a very simple game that revolves entirely around Capture The Flag. Because the game can be shared with seven other friends, that makes it a wonderful multiplayer-game. The matches are short, but pretty intense and chaotic. Odenis Studios has not forgotten those who fly solo, and also offers them a nice experience for only 500 DSi Points.

    A bit boring if you're on your own, but add some friends to the mix and this is a chuckle. [May 2010, p.91]
