    A class act. [Aug 2012, p.92]

    Dark, brutal and cinematic. [Jan 2009, p.57]

    Excellent, in its own peculiar way, but offers little new if you've got PES 2009. [Winter 2009, p.61]

    You need to invest in Opoona's world to get the most out of this title - but if you do, there's no traditional RPG on the Wii that comes close to its look and feel. [July 2008, p.56]

    Punch-Out!! is an odd choice for a revival, but it suits the Wii perfectly. Thumpy and brash but not without brains. It's time to get reacquainted.

    If golf's your game, this will keep you busy for ages. Decent new control modes, some good minigames, online play and real-time weather. [Aug 2009, p.70]

    A brilliant, beautiful adventure that takes everything good about Tomb Raider and polishes it. One of the Wii gmaes of the year. [Jan 2009, p.54]

    Lacks the scale or drama of your average Dragon Quest, but does offer compulsive monster raising. [Oct 2011, p.60]
    • 81 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Though there are problems, and though it doesn't actually match up to the magic of the original, Yoshi's Island DS is still a great little game. [January 2007, p.70]

    It's simple, it's retro, and it's extremely hard to put down once you get started. And excellent package on DS. [Nov 2007, p.58]

    • 85 Critic Score
    Lively combat and fun scenario design plaster over the narrative cracks. Not the glorious last hurrah we'd hoped for, but as fun as Wii games are going to be in a dry 2012. [Feb 2012, p.92]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 85 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Loads of variety, some of the most spectacular moves we've seen and a control system that lets everyone get the best out of it. Aces.! [Jan 2010, p.70]

    It's such a well-told story. [June 2009, p.67]

    A vast improvement over the first game. It's limited in places, but has some of the most immersive and responsive combat we've ever seen. [Apr 2010, p.48]

    Not the Star Fox we were hoping for, but one that's surprisig in pulling off the risks that it takes. [Oct 2006, p.58]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 82 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Another sterling effort for Messrs. Layton and Triton. A much-needed freshening of the graphics and interface give Layton's fifth adventure a new lease of life.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It's brain-achingly huge. [Christmas 2007, p.71]

    • 82 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A great port of a game that feels like it was always made to be played on the move - and with DS controls. [Nov 2008, p.64]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 74 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Finally, point 'n' click done right. [Oct 2008, p.58]

    The ultimate in fantasy warfare, and a great port from Other Formats, too. [Apr 2011, p.64]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 87 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Curiously forgettable and throwaway compared to the Mario platforming standard, but as a social experience ti's up there with the best on Wii. [Winter 2009, p.46]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 73 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    We're still torn whether to play top-to-bottom with 3D on or side-to-side with 3D off. Either way, this is the best PES on any format in ages.

    • 85 Critic Score
    Buying three extra peripherals and playing with others WILL make you happier... you won't want to take the trip alone. [Sept 2009, p.56]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 85 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It's brilliant, compelling, and the Wi-Fi score stakes are high. [May 2008, p.65]

    • 83 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    The extra dimension brings more generalised puzzling, but the game is more satisfying all round. Three-dimensional nonogram? Yesyesgram, we think. [Feb 2010, p.64]

    There's a ridiculous amount of content here for those who fancy it. [Winter 2009, p.84]

    It addresses just about every criticism we had about the summer game. [Winter 2009, p.44]

    • 84 Critic Score
    Loses a tiny little something if you're not ever going to see the four-player stuff, but it's undoubtedly a very cool and enjoyable hack-'em-up no matter how you play.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    Hideously addictive, it's the kind of game that'll have you replaying missions in your sleep. If you like Advance Wars or Fire Emblem, this is the 3DS game for you.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    Always fun, often merciless but never unfair. If you've played the DS version this is different enough to enjoy. If not, a trip to the operating room is a must. Seriously good for your health. [Feb 2007, p.56]
