    As a game, it's brilliant; as an all-encompassing experience for Nintendo fans, it's quite possibly unsurpassed. [Issue#20, p.70]

    Great narrative, Force powers and a fun multiplayer mode make the Wii version the pick of the Unleashed bunch.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is a rough game, but it's also funny and self-deprecating, inventive and massively rewarding. If more games had personality and style like No More Heroes does, the world of games would be a much more interesting place. [Issue#18, p.76]

    An epic, story-driven RPG both old and new that will delight fans of the series as well as newcomers to the genre.
    • n-Revolution Magazine UK
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It’s got a reasonably complex telekinesis mechanic, along the lines of The Force Unleashed, and much of the platforming uses one of Pax the protagonist’s special abilities. So it’s far from boring, but if you’ve got a phobia about mushrooms, this will make your skin crawl.

    Mario Super Sluggers oozes the kind of kinetic gameplay and light-hearted fun that the Wii was built for.

    Overall, Tomb Raider on the Wii works well. The ideas and level design present from Crystal Dynamics' time at conception shine through, even on the less powerful console. That alone makes it well worth anyone's time. [Issue#29, p.38]
    • 78 Metascore

    It’s a toss-up between this and Contra 4 for a DS run-‘n’-gun. MS7 could have done with a two-player game and more innovation.
