    A rollercoaster straight to Bullet Hell. [Christmas 2009, p.58]

    • 87 Critic Score
    The best puzzle game on Wii and one of the most satisfying things we've played in ages. Smashing stuff is good. Very good. [July 2008, p.54]

    • 85 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    A staggering port of an exceptional fighting game, but for all its accomplishments this is not the definitive version of the game. [Mar 2011, p.47]

    • 87 Critic Score
    In a sea of brown, grey and black sameyness, this is a rainbow life-raft of joy. Ignore all the joyless people who moan, and get splatting.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    Not as perfect as grandad remembers, but its design quirks fade under an onslaught of unrelenting brilliance. [Mar 2009, p.68]
    • 86 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    The lack of challenge will annoy some, but it's a game that anyone can enjoy, and most will love. [Issue#56, p.42]

    • 87 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    A relatively superficial, flashy platformer elevated by raucous level design and heaps of bonus goals. [Christmas 2010, p.54]

    There's no doubt that de Blob 2 is a great game, missing only the spark of inspiration that could've made it classic. A broad and singular experience.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    What Other M lacks in pure Metroid magic it makes up for in blockbuster thrills.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    Hardly the deepest RPG ever, but it's a fast-paced bots 'n' boobs romp, with more energy than a tap dancing meerkat. [Aug 2009, p.75]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 66 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    A relaxed approach to skiing and snowboarding that has loads of visual charm, very satisfying handling and a huge frozen playground to explore at your leisure.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    It looks younger and is simpler to play than previous seasons but there's still plenty of challenge here. Goals galore! [Dec 2009, p.54]

    • 67 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    A great toy to mess around with for an hour or two, with enough depth to the missions and extras to keep you coming back on a regular basis for months. [Dec 2008, p.52]

    • 79 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    A witty and gloriously fun Lego title, with a huge amount of respect for the source material. [July 2010, p.52]

    • 86 Critic Score
    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.

    Handsome, witty, and very good company. [May 2009, p.72]

    • 65 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    This is a labour of love rather than carefree gaming enjoyment, but it's one of the best "Moons" in a while. A very happy tenth birthday for the series. [Dec 2008, p.69]

    • 84 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Fully featured and complex, this could well keep you busy until next year's game. [July 2010, p.64]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 73 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Clumsy design holds it back from true greatness. [Christmas 2010, p.46]

    • 78 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    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]

    A meaty - often literally - thriller, well told. With no UK release currently on the cards we point all adventure nuts towards their nearest import site.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Top-class music game with great tunes and difficulty levels to suit beginners and experts alike. Shame about the 'aspirational' pricing. [Winter 2009, p.50]

    • 85 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Lots of variety, good use of the touch screen. [May 2008, p.73]
    • 64 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Sky-high production values, lavish special effects and great fun to explore with a friend. A highly enjoyable adventure that you'll happily forgive for its shortcomings. [Christmas 2008, p.63]

    • 74 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Not only the best combat flight sim on Wii but one of the best shooty action games of any type. [Feb 2010, p.60]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 78 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    The Rabbids can pull off a fully fledged game without Rayman's assistance. This is witty, charming and, above all, incredible fun.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Reminds you of the bizarre tactile thrills only Wii can offer. [July 2010, p.58]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 75 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Gorgeous, detailed, super-fast and loveably mad. [Apr 2011, p.58]

    • 81 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Still a brilliant game. [Feb 2011, p.64]

    • 89 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Clean but not particularly exciting presentation aside, this is a more than capable little paining app - you need to be good at art to get the most from it though. [June 2012, p.106]
