  1. Only a few awkward controls hamper an otherwise loving update. [Oct 2010, p.87]
  2. Unashamedly old-school, this puts gameplay fairly ahead of gloss. [Aug 2010, p.96]
  3. The unique blend of platforming and shooting, not to mention two different perspectives, give Blaster Master: Overdrive everything fans of original game could possibly want. Toss in some amazing gameplay tweaks and give the game a smoother difficulty curve and what you have is easily one of the best WiiWare games on the service and a fitting update to one of the all-time NES classics.
