    Although limited in scope, Flipper executes its few ideas with great panache and bags of charm. [July 2010, p.77]

    It builds on the films' best bits and dumps the worst. [June 2011, p.60]

    Like a chestburster, Infestation arrives out of nowhere to great surprise. Unlike a chestburster, it's dinky alien thrills are very much welcomed. [Oct 2011, p.66]

    Great value. [Mar 2010, p.75]

    One of the most successful Art Style experiments we've played, with a concept that deserves more. [July 2010, p.71]

    This platformer-racer's cartoon graphics mask some knuckle-chewing difficulty. A little gem. [Oct 2011, p.74]

    Ignore the pong of rotting flesh and dive in. [Oct 2011, p.76]

    Taken on its own merits, this is a great multiplayer music game with plenty of replay value. It's just a pity other consoles get much more bang for their buck. [Oct 2008, p.61]

    The grip makes it feel like more of a silly Guitar Hero toy than a hardcore contender, but hand cramps aside, this is a thoughtful adaptation for DS. [Oct 2008, p.63]

    A stripped-down version that retains the best part of the full retail game. [June 2011, p.71]

    This is a game you'll want to run and shout about immediately - if only all those dinosaurs and robots weren't in your way. [Feb 2010, p.72]

    Good, this. [Dec 2007, p.70]

    "Zoo Keeper: The RPG." As barmy as that might sound, that's about the best way to describe PQ: CTW. [June 2007, p.71]

    Succeeds in delivering Phantasy Star Online to DS, but niggling flaws and missed opportunities tarnish an otherwise great online RPG. [Mar 2010, p.62]

    A cynical reissue to exploit the game-starved hardcore on Wii? This is far too complicated for your mum to play. Still, it's a genuine (prequel to a) classic.

    Fans will find a massive playing experience with solid controls. [January 2007, p.65]

    Video pinball is great when it's done well, and Metroid Prime Pinball is at the upper end of the scale. Nice tables and a very Metroid-y feel.

    Makes you feel like a daring aventurer making progress, but at the expense of in-your-face thrills. [Aug 2007, p.63]

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

    This puzzler doesn't reach for the stars, but it's great at hovering above the earth. [Aug 2011, p.79]

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

    Simply put, it's a better looking, better functioning version of the original (voice recognition is noticeably improved). It's forgiving and accessible, almost to a fault, but rewards investment with those idiosyncratic movements that Nintendo do so well. And it makes nice use of the hardware. [Mar 2011, p.52]

    An improvement on last year's release in almost every regard, but don't think EA's push to bring families to the game will help you convince your mum to play sift through the huge play book. [Nov 2007, p.52]

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

    Whether you're into Warhammer or not, this is fantastic turn-based strategising, great to see on DS, with a brilliant multiplayer. [Mar 2008, p.69]
