  1. Basically, the game is quite funny, but the idea on its own doesn’t make a game to a great one. Too many negative points like the controls and the fact that the character isn’t saying anything make this game to an average one.
  2. A technically decent WiiWare game, but it's nothing remarkable. Not essential. [Mar 2010, p.94]
  3. Stop Stress feeds the player's innate desire to smash things by using motion controls to do the smashing, though everything isn't as much fun to smash as it could have been.
  4. Eight dollars seems too high, especially since the experience is pretty short, and while smashing things has some entertainment value, the overall feeling coming out is “that was really annoying.”
  5. 40
    More likely to induce than reduce frustration.
  6. A better name for Stop Stress would have been Start Stress. The game tries to frustrate you as much as possible. That’s admirable in some ways, but in the end it’s a waste of your money.
  7. I can’t say anything “nice” about this game. So do yourself a favor, save your money and go buy a good game, like Little King’s Story.
