    A very strong, well-rounded pop package. [Christmas 2009, p.56]

    A puzzle that's traded beauty for intelligence. [Feb 2008, p.75]

    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]

    It takes some investment to program a masterpiece, but listening to something that sort-of sounds like the theme to Mega Man 2 is suitably rewarding. [Christmas 2011, p.79]

    Familiar farming fun. [Christmas 2010, p.52]

    Look beyond the shoddy exterior and there's a surprisingly rich and varied arcade flyer. [Christmas 2010, p.58]

    If CoD is you thing, you'll get loads of value from this. [Christmas 2010, p.62]

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

    A completely manic fighting game that makes it satisfyingly simple to do some impressively simple moves. [Jan 2008, p.54]

    By far and away the best football sim on a handheld - but the things that make the 3DS hardware so different are the things that make PES 2012 worse. [Jan 2012, p.116]

    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]

    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]

    Samey combat can cause biff-fatigue to set in, but the nearly endless loot treadmill coupled with skills that are enjoyable to use make Heroes of Ruin a dungeon that's fun to run. [July 2012, p.94]

    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A port that's slower, blurrier, and missing multiplayer, but for all that it's still the 3DS' best non-Mario platformer. Beautiful, fluid and packed with value. [July 2012, p.97]

    Another excellent addition to the DS's catalogue of puzzlers. It's the clacking sounds that do it for us. And the pretty colours. Mmm. [Nov 2006, p.71]

    Punchy, cheap and cheerful splatter gaming. [Christmas 2008, p.60]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A solid mix of platforming and virtual-pet raising, but with a bit too much step-retracing. [May 2011, p.57]

    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]

    Works really well within the sometimes frustrating limitations of the DSi, providing reasonably user-friendly access to a set of fun, creative, flexible animation tools. [July 2012, p.106]

    NSMB2 is yet another great Mario platform game, with some cracking new features, but it's too similar to earlier games in the 'New' series to be a classic in its own right.

    A hefty online-enabled super-retro collection. [Dec 2006, p.38]

    It has all the elements of a brilliant game, but they don't quite come together as the classic it could have been. Very good all the same. [Nov 2009, p.54]

    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]

    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]

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

    For fans of Atlus' other RPGs, this is a real must-have. It might prove too slow or horrifically doom-laden for less seasoned role-playing fans, however. [May 2010, p.60]

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

    A truly unique experience, Little Inferno isn't really a game - it's more of a toy box with sinister undertones and a beautiful ending. Had it been a fiver we'd have told everyone to go and snap it up immediately, but at £12.99 for a four-hour game think long and hard about taking the risk since it isn't for everyone. Those who click with it will adore it.

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