    This little gem was made by three blokes in a Parisian attic. Basically a shoot-'em-up, but one stuffed with loads of great ideas and lots of content. Tres bon. [Mar 2009, p.67]

    Engrossing tale told by master storytellers, with all the Noir-ish thrills of "The Big Sleep." Unless you're a hardcore action junkie, import now. [Apr 2007, p.62]

    This is a game that anyone who's serious about games should play. A mammoth adventure crafted with unparalleled attention to detail. A fantastic experience. [Feb 2012, p.84]

    This is the Dragon Quest that we know and love. [Apr 2011, p.54]

    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Scatty, overambitious design disappoints, but the Final Fantasy love rings out loud and clear like the honk of a Chocobo with its head trapped in a tuba. [Aug 2012, p.95]

    Epic missions will take a lot of train journeys to finish, but this comes recommended for players who know what they're doing and can tame the irritating controls. [Mar 2009, p.66]

    The Rabbids can pull off a fully fledged game without Rayman's assistance. This is witty, charming and, above all, incredible fun.

    Not quite as stuffed with content as "SSX Blur" but the charm-filled SWS takes snowboarding games to new heights with its controls. [Christmas 2008, p.52]

    • 80 Critic Score
    Not exactly the dazzling reinvention we hoped for, but Apollo Justice more than holds his own. [May 2008, p.55]
    • 78 Metascore

    Very fun indeed. [Dec 2007, p.62]

    Oh PES, we do love you but you've gone all boring on us. [Nov 2010, p.50]

    A great concept hampered by some boring level design and clumsy interfaces. [Sept 2008, p.56]

    Shameless lack of originality aside, this might be worth a look if you've exhausted the real thing. [Mar 2010, p.52]

    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.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    This isn't as mind-spinningly enjoyable as we hoped. [Nov 2007, p.54]
    • 78 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    Quite charming and colourful RTS, with a simple and accessible stylus-only control scheme and a fun multiplayer. Not really that much depth for hardened RTSites though. [Sept 2007, p.65]

    Even minus bongos Beat is too good a core experience to criticise. [Aug 2009, p.66]

    A fluid run-jump-fire actioner with something new at every turn. [JPN Import; Oct 2007, p.72]

    A really enjoyable adventure with thrilling acrobatics, spectacular locations and satisfying rewards. [January 2007, p.66]

    WiiWare's Sonic 4 may yet prove the bigger draw for fans, but it'll be a victory for hedgehogs past. True fans, those that really love and cherish the blue blur, should bet on Colours, because if Sonic is to have a future then that future starts here.

    So what if it's the same old Fire Emblem? The score's for non-Japanese speakers - the UK version will likely do much better. [JPN Import; May 2007, p.45]

    With 30 stages, Magic Obelisk is a great little package. [Mar 2010, p.74]

    A perfectly acceptable pint-sized kart racer. [Mar 2010, p.58]

    Repetitive, bland and ultimately not very Goku. [Jan 2009, p.76]

    Decent, but let down by bland presentation and annoying bugs. [Oct 2006, p.69]

    Sure, this is one for the younger gamer, but it's witty, varied and has great visuals. [Dec 2009, p.61]

    An excellent RPG but a poor port. [Oct 2011, p.65]

    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.

    The best tennis game on Wii, and probably the most enjoyable one we've played on any console since Mario Tennis on N64. [Aug 2009, p.62]

    A rather limp "WarioWare" is followed by a rather limp Wii Wario Land. Wazza's never looked better, but has rarely played so sensibly. Where's the attitude, you porker? [Nov 2008, p.52]
