    A bit of stylus-powered frog-in-a-ball rolling occasionally interrupts the bounding, but even this is clumsily controlled, with mad stroking more likely to erode your DS screen than get the spherical spawn of the devil to respond. [Mar 2007, p.61]

    This repetitious trudge is nothing to do with Soul Calibur beyond some character skins, and should be avoided unless you want to lose the will to live. [Feb 2008, p.52]
    • 71 Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    The terrible presentation and the tiny icons won't endear themselves to the crusty purne-eyes belonging to their target audience. [Aug 2007, p.71]

    The kids will probably love it, mind. [Apr 2011, p.74]

    Too easy. [Feb 2011, p.70]

    An awkward and ugly collection of minigames. [Apr 2010, p.62]

    Cuteness doesn't make up for the lack of an enjoyable game - we hope this only serves a short term in office. [JPN Import; Mar 2007, p.60]
    • tbd Metascore
    • 45 Critic Score
    Less a twist on the genre, more a re-draw with a different coloured pencil. [Apr 2012, p.101]

    • 44 Critic Score
    At one point, we actually thought we were going to cry. [July 2008, p.73]

    • 68 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    At best it's a formulaic RPG, but mostly it's a one-way journey to dullsville. [Feb 2008, p.70]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 54 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    Tedious and incredibly unrewarding. [Aug 2008, p.65]

    Depressing from the very first row of formulaic collectable yellow orbs, Raving Rabbids is platforming by numbers. [Feb 2007, p.75]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 63 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    The drudgery of seeking is broken up with occasional spot the difference and tile-sliding puzzles but these can be skipped without incurring penalty. [Issue#56, p.71]

    Uninspired controls. [Jan 2009, p.70]

    • 61 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    We don't care for the source material and this is too chaotic to actually play. Throws so much silliness around you can't appreciate it. [Feb 2007, p.73]

    • 54 Metascore
    • 44 Critic Score
    This is messy and dull. [July 2010, p.66]

    • 43 Critic Score
    It's hard not to be insulted and even harder to wring enjoyment from this. [Aug 2011, p.68]

    We can only hope this barren minigame collection is the testing ground for a proper Gremlins revival, as there's zero reason for it to exist otherwise. [Feb 2012, p.99]

    The Dracula-themed story means there are 'spooky' (ie, murky0 locations unsuited to item-finding, and some object placement is just impossible. [Issue#56, p.71]
    • Nintendo Gamer

    • 43 Critic Score
    It drives you bonkers in the first half hour, each of the ten trillion fights dull and easy. [Apr 2007, p.70]

    • 43 Critic Score
    There's a certain amount of fun to be had smashing everything to pieces, but no longevity. [Oct 2008, p.76]

    Strictly for the show fans. In America. [Mar 2009, p.74]

    The Wii doesn't have a great history with skating games, but that's no reason to settle for a boring, charmless title such as this. [July 2009, p.72]

    • 42 Critic Score
    Depressingly devoid of any of the movie series' charm. [Apr 2007, p.51]

    Very pleasant and cute for the kiddies, but mum or dad will soon spot the technical shortcomings. [May 2010, p.68]

    Cuter than it is fun. The Squeeballs need more time in the toy factory before they're unleashed on gamers again. [Winter 2009, p.62]

    Gives you a reason to use the board. But seeing as it's one of the worst peripherals ever made, that's not something to celebrate. [Jan 2011, p.64]

    • 57 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    Localisation hasn't improved this fatally flawed game. It's a shame, as some good ideas have been smothered by lame controls. [July 2009, p.72]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 70 Metascore
    • 42 Critic Score
    This is a basic third-person shooter with really clunky controls. [Issue#56, p.70]

    Lacklustre. [May 2011, p.71]
