    Possibly one of the best puzzlers ever to grace consoles.
  2. This is not a game you need in your library - this is a game everyone *must* have.
  3. Awesome. The Sonic Team title has it all – 4 player linkable battle, create-a-stage, create-a-character, and some of the best darn puzzles that ever made it to a portable.
  4. Simply put Chu Chu is sheer simplicity yet devilishly tough gaming perfection.

    The biggest hurdle for players to get over is simply the gameplay itself. Chu Chu Rocket isn't very forgiving, as players are basically dropped in the middle of the game and left to fend for themselves
  6. When it comes down to it, Chu Chu delivers on almost all fronts.
  7. So ingenious, yet simple in its execution that it would have succeeded on almost any platform. In spite of a few flaws, it is damn near a match made in heaven.
  8. Unfortunately, the game is let down slightly by a rather annoying control problem – by only having one button to lay down arrows, you need to keep pressing it repeatedly to switch direction.

    Creative, weird, wild, and endlessly replayable.

    Highly addictive and highly cute. [Feb 2003, p.97]
  11. One of the most unique puzzle designs to come along in a while. Whether you like your thinking games slow and strategic or fast and chaotic, you'll find something to enjoy with this one.
  12. It's fun, fast, and furious pace will have you seeing cats and mice in your sleep.
  13. 80
    The GBA handles the humble graphics and Disney-sweet music without breaking a sweat, and the control—while less elegant than the Dreamcast’s—will feel comfortable to "Tetris" vets.
