    • 38 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score

    • 54 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    Really difficult and mean-spirited. Puff was magic; Spyro is a jerk. [Christmas 2007, p.84]

    • 49 Critic Score
    Not a nightmare, but you'll be wistfully wishing for more excitement. [Sept 2008, p.84]
    • tbd Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    In a crowded genre filled with great titles, this is so far off road that it's in a ditch. [Feb 2009, p.78]
    • 49 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score

    A repetitive load of rot. [Apr 2009, p.80]
    • 50 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    Go and see the movie instead - it's cheaper, it stars Ricky Gervais and they serve popcorn. [July 2009, p.82]

    • 67 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    Even if the Elder Scrolls cold turkey is hurting bad, buying this would still be a daft decision. [Mar 2011, p.92]
    • 68 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    It's incapable of holding your attention for long enough to warrant a high review score. [Feb 2011, p.91]
    • 54 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    It's not awful just basic to the point of tedium. [Aug 2012, p.84]
    • 55 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    The simplicity of the web game is lost in this flabby, oversized spin-off. [Nov 2012, p.85]

    • 49 Critic Score
    Stylish visuals can't save this from being a repetitive and uninspiring experience. [May 2013, p.81]

    • 49 Critic Score
    Great potential squandered by unimaginative level design and cheap mechanical failings. [Christmas 2013, p.82]
    • 54 Metascore
    • 49 Critic Score
    Dragon Ball Z deserves more than this. [Apr 2014, p.78]
    • 37 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    Passes the time of day in multi-player but single player is slow and dull. [Christmas 2006, p.101]
    • 56 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    A 14-game collection that inspires only fleeting nostalgia. [Christmas 2006, p.101]
    • 59 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    A child safe damp squib of a game that has none of the edge of the cartoon. [Aug 2007, p.73]
    • 37 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    A joyless mess that would have looked dated five years ago. In 2007 there's no excuse. [Sept 2007, p.82]
    • 56 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    A minigame compilation that lacks any real charm, and simply isn't enough fun. [Jan 2007, p.69]
    • 32 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    A first stepping stone to RPGs but this will be too basic for most. [Oct 2007, p.85]
    • 68 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    Unfriendly and dull. If Advance Wars had an evil twin, it would probably look like this. [May 2009, p.71]

    • 48 Critic Score

    • 48 Critic Score
    Uninspiring puzzles. [Aug 2010, p.104]
    • 62 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    Pretty, but oddly unsatisfying to play. [July 2011, p.87]
    • 53 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    A surprisingly empty game lacking structure or purpose. [Feb 2012, p.93]
    • 54 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    The only good thing here is the endless retro mode - a fleeting thrill only. [Feb 2012, p.101]
    • 57 Metascore
    • 48 Critic Score
    Pitch-perfect nostalgia spoiled by borderline unplayable matches. [Apr 2012, p.92]
