    It's incredibly slick. [Dec 2008, p.80]

    • 79 Critic Score
    The game overcomes its scrolling-through-text flaws with strong writing and entertaining graphics. [JPN Import; January 2007, p.69]

    In short: if you've got a DS, get the DS version. If not, get this. [Feb 2008, p.55]

    Despite our misgivings about the game's long-term appeal, Soul Bubbles is still considerably more polished and better produced than the vast majority of DS software.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    Resi fanboys should feel free to add ten to the score; straight-up shooter fans with no love for zombies should deduct ten. Chronicles is set to become the most divisive game on the Wii.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    It isn't quite the game we were hoping for, but taken as another Mario sports game rather than a baseball sim, it's as solid and enjoyable as you'd expect. [JPN Import; Sept 2008, p.52]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 84 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    A stern memory and reflex test. [Nov 2011, p.69]
    • 59 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    Great characters, great value, an addictive story and loads of furious fighting fun. [June 2008, p.51]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 66 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    Good-looking and fan-pleasing, but a bit short. [Dec 2011, p.65]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 79 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    Still great, but if you have last year's game there's little reason to shell out. [Dec 2011, p.69]

    A brilliant Zapper title with plenty to offer. [May 2008, p.52]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 75 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    You won't find a better looking DS shooter and it's engaging while it lasts, though your hands and eyes will hate you for playing extended sessions. [May 2010, p.57]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 70 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    Unmatched interactivity. [Nov 2006, p.74]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 61 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    It's basically a history lesson meets the X-Men, and every bit as goofy as that sounds. [Apr 2011, p.70]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 76 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    Has more love in its bones than Konami's usual dead-horse-floggers - and it's great value at the current dollar-pound exchange rate.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    The controls are solid and satisfyingly straightforward. [Mar 2008, p.71]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 72 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    Genuinely atmospheric and unnervingly scary - a grown up treat for your DS. [Jan 2008, p.60]
    • 75 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    There's no surprises other than neat plot twists and an interesting battle system unique to the series. [Dec 2006, p.45]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 83 Metascore
    • 79 Critic Score
    Brilliantly odd music game made slightly less good by the replacement of four of the best tracks. not fair! [July 2009, p.75]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 77 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    The new challenges are fun, but there's not really enough different stuff here to make it a must-have purchase if you've already got the first one. [Aug 2007, p.60]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 73 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    Paradoxical. A celebration of old school and simplicity appearing on a machine capable of so much more. Accept that it won't push the Wii, and it's highly enjoyable. [Mar 2007, p.50]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 65 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    As a happy-go-lucky bit of racket-fuelled froth it'll keep you pleasantly diverted. [June 2008, p.70]

    • 69 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    Another tip-top DS god game. [Dec 2008, p.80]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 72 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    A decent yarn with unashamedly retro mechanics. [Christmas 2009, p.67]

    • 82 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    If you have the 07 or 08 versions then only get this for online play. If not, it's worth a punt. [Nov 2008, p.58]

    • 67 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    Rabbids provide multiplayer lunacy and joy in a minigame collection that's one of the nicest on Wii at the moment. [Jan 2008, p.46]
    • 75 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    This is great fun with a few friends on board and on DS it handles exceptionally smoothly, but Wii owners may end up feeling a bit short-changed by it.

    "Quotation Forthcoming"
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 73 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    Online fighting action with loads of blood, comical fatalities and a slightly dodgy bonus puzzle mode. Hardly 'ultimate' but fun all the same. [Feb 2008, p.69]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 77 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    The ideal next step for puzzle-hungry gamers who've exhausted Zoo Keeper and the like. [Apr 2010, p.68]
