    Only the most hardcore fans are going to persevere with it, and even then it just doesn't work properly. [Jan 2008, p.52]

    2D fighters aren't so cool now, so GGXXAC was never going to unite the gaming world like "Street Fighter 2" did back in the early nineties, but it might just unite your frienids. [JPN Import; Nov 2007, p.48]

    Imagine "Ninjabread Man" with all the cakes taken out and replaced by musical stuff. Congratulations - you've just invented Rock 'N Roll Adventures! [Christmas 2007, p.65]

    As a pinball game, it's up there. As entertainment, it stares blankly at you and occasionally farts. Concrete-proof pinball belongs in the arcade.

    A very poor effort that doesn't succeed on any level. [Feb 2008, p.54]

    Even with a year to polish it up, Bleach feels like a rushed Wii launch job. Very poor. [Mar 2008, p.59]

    Despite having all the components for a promising game, this is a complete disappointment. [Feb 2008, p.65]

    Patience and perseverance are required. [Dec 2007, p.]

    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]

    It's brain-achingly huge. [Christmas 2007, p.71]

    A collection of rubbish puzzles that will surely train your brain not to let your wallet waste 20 pounds on this sort of crap in the future. You have been warned. [Aug 2007, p.67]

    A game so bad, it brings shame upon Donkey Kong and his entire family. [JPN Import; Oct 2007, p.60]

    Awful game. [May 2008, p.75]

    • 10 Critic Score
    A shrine to gaming incompetence. Arriving in the same month as "Galaxy" it's gotta take some balls to release something as totally inept as this and expect people to play it. [Christmas 2007, p.64]

    The steaming cherry on an already stinking bum-cake, Billy the Wizard is one of the most horrible things to have happened to us in a long while. [Christmas 2007, p.65]

    If this was any more generic, it'd be...er, something really generic. [Dec 2007, p.51]

    The appeal of the characters will draw you through an initial period of confusion and into a genuinely excellente DS title. [JPN Import; Oct 2007, p.70]

    • 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]

    It's a really simple fighting game with a low difficulty level, plenty of cool moves, great characters, rubbish enemies, and a good dose of cartoon style. [Christmas 2007, p.57]

    Utterly mediocre. [Dec 2007, p.53]

    20 of the finest gaming hours of the year. [Dec 2007, p.42]

    The motion controls don't make for a very intuitive way of playing. [Dec 2007, p.55]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 20 Metascore
    • 35 Critic Score
    Very basic platform game with a promising lead character. Not actually awful but it's overpriced at 20 pounds and a little frustrating for younger players. [Christmas 2007, p.65]

    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Only inflict on youngsters when you're absolutely desperate. [May 2008, p.75]

    All it needs is for someone to strip out the associations with the film and you'd have a decent table tennis game. [Christmas 2007, p.70]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Utterly uninspired stuff in every single way imaginable. [Jan 2008, p.55]

    • 65 Critic Score
    It's a disheartening slurp backwards when compared to "Eledees," but there are enough unique ideas here to warrant a rental when it comes out in the UK. [JPN Import; Nov 2007, p.46]
    • 68 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    We can't figure out how on earth we've spent so much time in the game, or what we've actually accomplished, but doing next to nothing has never been so much fun. [Nov 2007, p.38]

    • 67 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    This version is way too lightweight to recommend it as truly entertaining outright, but what it lacks in structure, is compensated in spades by its cute charm. [Nov 2007, p.41]
    • 67 Metascore
    • 57 Critic Score
    You absolutely must play "Pac-Man Vs" before you die. [Dec 2007, p.52]
