  1. The control system and mission structure makes it unfairly annoying at times. [Mar 2009, p.88]
  2. A strict time limit also detracts from what's otherwise a fun game. [Nov 2008, p.104]
  3. If a little more time was spent in development ironing out these kinks, then Tornado could have been a solid form of competition for Katamari Damacy.
  4. I would not recommend Tornado at all. It’s a decent concept (one we’ve seen before) but is executed in an extremely frustrating manner.
  5. At first the game will get your sympathy. It looks nice with it's 3D surroundings and cute looking cartoon characters, but it won't take long before the very, very bad game concept destroys everything that you might like. Tornado offers little less than looking around for objects and remembering were they are when you need them a second time. On top of that you hardly see anything of the surroundings, resulting in a well earned insufficient grade.
  6. Tornado is a title that started with a solid base of fun gameplay mechanics and interesting level design and then buried it under a mound of inexplicably terrible design faults that seem like they were created to generate annoyance.
  7. Tornado is one of the worst DS games we’ve played in quite a while. An interesting concept ruined by an impenetrable single player and a crippling control scheme. Avoid like the plague.
