    The best Trauma Center to date, we recognise that the game is ultra niche - so we've dropped our original score a little. [Dec 2008, p.73]
    • 78 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    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]

    2D fighters aren't so cool now, so GGXXAC was never going to unite the gaming world like "Street Fighter 2" did back in the early nineties, but it might just unite your frienids. [JPN Import; Nov 2007, p.48]

    In essence this is identical to the game you destroyed and rebuilt last year. But whe it's this much fun it would be riddikulus to complain. [Christmas 2011, p.70]

    Mario & Sonic fills the multiplayer gap, and does it with good-humoured minigames and a renewed focus on throwaway Olympic fun. As far as party games go, it's the gold standard.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    Fans have been ill-served on the pinball front for too long now, but this is a giant nudge in the right direction. [Jan 2012, p.122]

    The career mode's solid. [Christmas 2010, p.74]

    Dumb action threatens to overshadow the odd combat system, but beneath it there's some of Squeenix's most enjoyable work in years.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    An absorbing, tactically rich fighter with endless replay value. [May 2011, p.60]
    • 69 Metascore

    Strong in every department, from story to combat to graphics. [Mar 2010, p.60]

    On par with the 360 version of the same name. This will tingle your heart strings just as much as your fingers. [Dec 2006, p.36]

    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]
    • 76 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    It's slick, it's fun and it's a Stay Puft-sized treat for fans of the series. [Sept 2009, p.60]

    • 84 Critic Score
    A deep, dark role-playing title with an unusually excellent story. [Oct 2009, p.65]

    A simpler, more focused MySims experience. Shorter than the original but much nicer to look at, well written and quite funny at times. Who needs the real world? [Christmas 2008, p.50]

    Gameplay that's as pure and refreshing as a glass of cold banana juice on a summer's day. [JPN Import; Nov 2007, p.60]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 74 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    A party game that does a lot more than most to show off the possibilities of the controller, and a set of one-player levels that will enthrall, frustrate and capture your attention every bit as much as the previous Monkey Ball games did. [January 2007, p.47]

    • 81 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    A brilliantly ballsy debut on a console short on adult thrills. [May 2009, p.48]

    You'll remember A Shadow's Tale for years to come. [Oct 2010, p.63]

    Batman hasn't changed his act in 70 years, so don't be surprised to find a game that's stuck in its ways. But what ludicrously fun ways they are. [Nov 2008, p.44]

    • 84 Critic Score
    It's one of the classic RPG series, and a great value for money if you want to spend the months of hard labour it'll take to find every hidden note. Worth the effort. [Nov 2006, p.62]

    Moments of brilliance, moments of frustration, and masses of replay value. They don't make them like this any more - they remake them.

    A relaxing underwater adventure that teaches you about fish and shows you how to battle sharks for their buried treasure. [Feb 2010, p.62]

    The fat's been trimmed, but the horror has dimmed. The result is the most psychological Silent Hill yet, if not the scariest. [Feb 2010, p.56]

    Be warned, mind: there's a slight tendency towards random outcomes. [Jan 2011, p.62]

    You turn on the DS at 5pm. Next thing you know, it's 11:30pm and the stylus has worn a bloody groove into your finger. Forget The Matrix: it's Picross's grids that'll enslave us all. [JPN Import]
