    Far too hard at the beginning, even on Easy mode, and all poorly explained. One for the only the hardiest strategy fans. [Sept 2007, p.63]

    With a few more months' development this might have come good. But in this state not even Professor Xavier could convince us to play it again.

    Not actually broken in any way, it's just an oddly vacuous and simplistic take on the poisoned ground previously laid down by Hudson. [Nov 2006, p.69]

    Tables are too squished on the DS screen, making the balls seem massive, but using the stylus to direct the cue and set power is pretty effective. [Apr 2007, p.70]

    Different protagonists, same game. [Christmas 2008, p.66]

    A series of unpredictable laughs and little else, disguised within a vibrant luchadore mask. [Sept 2007, p.70]

    Travel In Time doesn't so much scrape the barrel as suck dirt from the barrel with a bendy straw. There are almost no ideas and, as a result, almost no fun.

    If the balance board controls worked, the game world wasn't so barren and there weren't severe balancing issues, this would be okay. [Feb 2009, p.64]

    As a game, Escape Trick: Rock City Prison is turgid and infuriating. [Jan 2012, p.123]

    More tech demo than anything else. [May 2011, p.65]

    The whole game looks like it was hastily moulded out of plasticine. [Sept 2007, p.70]

    Zendoku is much, much better. [Aug 2007, p.65]

    You'll think you've snagged a winner to begin with, but reeling in boot after metaphorical boot reminds you that this is the same old Rapala. [Dec 2008, p.63]

    This game only confirms our anti-Thor prejudice. He IS crap. [June 2011, p.64]

    Less Deep Blue Sea, and more In The Bin. [May 2008, p.74]

    Sorry to disappoint, but if Safecracker is the ultimate puzzle adventure then we're a small punnet of strawberries. [Mar 2010, p.68]

    The only mystery is why anyone would buy into something so lazy. [Aug 2008, p.66]

    The makings of a great sim let down by terrible AI and scrappy graphics. [Christmas 2011, p.75]

    A so-so puzzler spoiled by airborne interludes. [Oct 2008, p.77]

    Whatever nuance there is to swing control is lost in the five-hour bowler animation. [Dec 2007, p.54]

    It's very little fun to play, and since you can play a limited version online for free as a Flash game, there's no good reason to put it in your DS. [June 2007, p.70]

    It makes Space Jam look like a sophisticated and well-considered movie. [Nov 2011, p.73]
