    A decent yarn with unashamedly retro mechanics. [Christmas 2009, p.67]

    It's all fun and games until someone remembers how good SSX used to be. [Christmas 2009, p.62]

    • 72 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    A dizzying array of stuff will keep you tinkering for a while. [Christmas 2009, p.54]

    The ideal next step for puzzle-hungry gamers who've exhausted Zoo Keeper and the like. [Apr 2010, p.68]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 78 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    Shameless lack of originality aside, this might be worth a look if you've exhausted the real thing. [Mar 2010, p.52]

    • 81 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    Scientific and thoroughly accurate. [June 2010, p.64]

    • tbd Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    As a full retail release it's difficult to justify the price. [June 2010, p.70]

    "Quotation Forthcoming"
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 82 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    Almost as surprisingly great as the Wii version, so worth the money. [Dec 2011, p.72]

    • 87 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    The crappy songs don't help, but this remains a decent rhythm action game for the DS. And it makes no more sense for being in English. It's no "Rhythm Tengoku," of course. [January 2007, p.73]

    • 72 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    A skimpy package that you'll probably finish in record time. Definitely exciting, but also a great advertisement for videogame rentals. [Feb 2007, p.54]
    • 65 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    It's a perfect fit for the dual screens, and the simultaneous two-rabbit control works well:: each half on its own would be too simple, but playing them together is interesting. [Oct 2007, p.73]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 72 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    It's challenging, fast-paced and really rather pretty. [Dec 2007, p.69]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 73 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    Has more than enough inspired moments to help you see past the shortcomings. [Dec 2007, p.61]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 67 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    Not entirely convincing, and far less smooth than Nintendo's unnamed dog-related game. But it's well put-together feline fun with minigames. [June 2007, p.68]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 70 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    An improvement on the first. [Feb 2008, p.63]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 75 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    Blisteringly fast racer with slightly dodgy handling but a great track editor. Link up with four other players for maximum fun. [Dec 2008, p.75]

    • 77 Critic Score
    The puzzling work definitely hits the mark like a shovel to the jugular. [May 2008, p.74]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 59 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    This is a game that rewards patience and routine. [June 2008, p.63]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 68 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    It feels like more of a launching point for a fresh fighting mechanic than a game that fully makes something of it. We're interested to see what they do wtih the Wii version. [Aug 2008, p.64]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 65 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    With the basic controls it's like a jazzed up version of Wii Sports. With the full manual controls it's a mess. Take your pick.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    A solid second outing for the Puzzle Quest series that will keep you busy for light years if you can overlook a few frustrating elements. [June 2009, p.65]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 70 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    If only it supported four players, this would be a definite must have. [Dec 2006, p.44]

    • 54 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    Dream Trigger 3D is quirky to the point of brain-bursting confusion. But it's a welcome change from 3DS's current line-up of simplified titles.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    There's plenty of anger-tinged excitement here for your money. [Feb 2012, p.107]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 64 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    There's no denying what it does do is gripping, challenging and enjoyable. [Sept 2012, p.107]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 64 Metascore
    • 77 Critic Score
    A limited single-player experience is supported by a brilliant (if basic) multiplayer mode. Very much a case of style over substance, but the substance it does have should keep you entertained for a while.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    A frustratingly slow pace and the sad realisation that a humdinger of a plot is zooming over our heads are the only problems here. Otherwise one of the best RTS games on DS. [JPN Import; June 2007, p.54]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 79 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    Way too over reliant on the D-pad diagonals. [July 2007, p.71]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 59 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    Ignore the fighting's mechanical edge and this is about as good a shot as wrestling has at reaching a wider audience. But wrestling fans, beware - this probably isn't for you. [Christmas 2007, p.60]
