  • Summary: [WiiWare] Critter Round-Up is an original arcade-style puzzle game that tasks the player with building fences in order to separate different herds of critters. Be careful to watch the animals and make sure they don't get you while you're putting up your fences! More than 50 challenging levels take you to several exotic locations, including the Outback, the icy Arctic and more! Play solo or with a friend in Adventure Mode or play with up to 4 friends in all mini games, Co-Op Challenge and Marathon Mode. [Nintendo] Expand

  1. The bottom line is Critter Round-Up packs a lot of fun into a short period of time.
  2. At 1,000 Wii points ($10), Critter Round-Up is a good choice for light puzzle action and wacky multiplayer fun.
  3. 61
    Critter Round-Up has its charms, but there's not quite enough here to justify the $10 price tag.
  4. 50
    Older and more seasoned players, however (along with PETA members), can safely abstain from this simple critter-caging diversion.
  5. The simple fact of the matter is that this game is just too sluggish and doesn't offer up enough gameplay variety to keep most people's interest for more than a few minutes.
  6. A teeth-grindingly stupid premise belies a few okay gameplay ideas. [Aug 2008, p.75]
  7. There's nothing terribly wrong with all this in theory, but the game's shocking lack of polish makes even this rudimentary gameplay a real chore to get through.
