  1. Even without a huge diversity of modes, there are worse ways to spend $10. [Dec 2009, p.81]
  2. There's not much wind behind the sails of this oceanic combat game.

    From the simple gameplay to the overused pirate stereotypes, Yo Ho Kablammo just isn't a very original game. Sure, you don't usually have to fire your weapons sideways -- but that's more frustrating than fun.
  4. Fiddly controls. [Issue#51, p.105]
