    Fast as you like, fun to control and a mindless diversion for military fetishists. Difficult, even on the easiest setting, but if you're up to the challenge you'll get loads of value from it. [May 2007, p.46]

    Punchy, cheap and cheerful splatter gaming. [Christmas 2008, p.60]

    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A completely manic fighting game that makes it satisfyingly simple to do some impressively simple moves. [Jan 2008, p.54]
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Deep, involving management sim with an appealing theme and enough comical touches to make you forget that you're really playing a piece of A-level economics coursework. [May 2007, p.59]

    A full console game intelligently squeezed into a handheld. [Sept 2007, p.58]

    If you like laughing and sweating - and especially both at the same time - this is Olympic gold. Some duff events, but you'll be giggling too hard to care. [Christmas 2007, p.44]

    • 80 Critic Score
    A fluid run-jump-fire actioner with something new at every turn. [JPN Import; Oct 2007, p.72]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Not exactly the kind of thing you'd expect to see on the DS, and certainly not in as slick and professional a package as this. Well worth a go if you're into your racing sims. [Nov 2007, p.62]

    An improvement on last year's release in almost every regard, but don't think EA's push to bring families to the game will help you convince your mum to play sift through the huge play book. [Nov 2007, p.52]

    Whether you're into Warhammer or not, this is fantastic turn-based strategising, great to see on DS, with a brilliant multiplayer. [Mar 2008, p.69]

    Good, this. [Dec 2007, p.70]

    Camelot have done it again, weaving their unique brand of golfing simplicity on a console where swing confusion rules. It could do with some padding, but this is a great start. [Mar 2008, p.56]

    Longevity is questionable and some will find it too bitty, but there are few titles on Wii so full of childish glee. If this is Frontier off the rails, we can't wait to see them on track. [Christmas 2007, p.54]

    Not exactly the dazzling reinvention we hoped for, but Apollo Justice more than holds his own. [May 2008, p.55]
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    There was nothing wrong with it last time, and this is the same except with a more polished track editor. Top stuff for real driving fans. [July 2008, p.69]
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The grip makes it feel like more of a silly Guitar Hero toy than a hardcore contender, but hand cramps aside, this is a thoughtful adaptation for DS. [Oct 2008, p.63]

    Taken on its own merits, this is a great multiplayer music game with plenty of replay value. It's just a pity other consoles get much more bang for their buck. [Oct 2008, p.61]

    Feels like a real-deal Wii title, so a purchase is a real no-brainer. [Aug 2008, p.71]

    As essential as buying the DVD box set of the first three films. Just a bit Lego-ier. [Aug 2008, p.54]

    Ideal for dip-in, dip-out puzzling play, but with the smarts to outlast many other titles. [Aug 2008, p.74]

    Ignore all the neon '80s nonsense going on around it and this is a solid game. There's plenty of it, and it gets tough as old boots as well. [Sept 2008, p.68]

    All the aural pleasure of a Newton's cradle mixed with the explosive satisfaction of Mii-controlled, cannon-propelled marbles. What's not to love? [Sept 2008, p.66]

    A simple, fluffy and light-hearted affair, but one that will charm your socks off and make you giggle if you give it a chance. [May 2009, p.74]

    Easily the best Rabbids have been, making TV Party the minigame compilation to get. Wobbly and very, very silly. What more can we say? [Christmas 2008, p.44]

    The minigames and presentation are great for very young gamers. [Oct 2008, p.76]

    Comical catnip for fans. [Nov 2008, p.72]

    Only the stony-hearted would fail to appreciate at least some of this game. [Jan 2009, p.48]

    Really get into it and you'll spend weeks finding the perfect 'solutions". For everyone else, this is a rare actioner on Wii, and very competently handheld. [JPN Import; Mar 2009, p.58]

    Unique and addictive. [Apr 2009, p.73]
