    A game so bad, it brings shame upon Donkey Kong and his entire family. [JPN Import; Oct 2007, p.60]

    Musical employs changing colour wheels that collectively conspire to do your ever-shifting eyes an injury, and not layout that's more shotgun splatter than musical matter. [Nov 2007, p.73]

    One for the sin bin. [Dec 2009, p.71]

    Cribs some good ideas from the Wii title but implements them badly - much like every other element of the game. [Mar 2009, p.69]

    Bone idle. Soulless. Death warmed up. Putting the grim in Grim Reaper. Afterlife? No life. We could go on, but we can't will ourselves to. Avoid.

    A yo-ho-no. [Dec 2008, p.77]

    Like the stick men themselves, Defend Your Castle is a little skinny but not unable to break through your defences. [Aug 2008, p.75]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A teeth-grindingly stupid premise belies a few okay gameplay ideas. [Aug 2008, p.75]

    Don't be fooled by the pointer controls or other fripperies. [Aug 2008, p.75]

    Cocoto can bore you into thinking you're having a good time, but it's a poorly executed game that's been done much better before elsewhere. [Sept 2008, p.68]

    The online multiplayer adds some value, but the core gameplay is repetitive to the max. [Oct 2008, p.74]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 53 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Misfires with its repetitive gameplay and ships that handle like ice skaters. [Sept 2008, p.67]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 42 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    There's a decent 3D platformer buried somewhere in SPRay, but a mass of bugs, poor design decisions and slipshod localisation makes it very hard to access. [Mar 2009, p.65]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 66 Metascore

    A bit disappointing. [Dec 2008, p.79]

    If you're not allowed a real fish tank this is a reasonable compromise, but it's really no substitute from the real thing, or for an actual game. [Oct 2008, p.74]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 50 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A game that somehow manages to be incredibly offensive by being so bland and inoffensive that you want to rip its beating heart right out. [Dec 2008, p.78]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 52 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A polished, professional, utterly frustrating and totally nonsensical experience. So much effort has been wasted on this it's tragic. [Dec 2008, p.79]

    • 64 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Exactly what you were expecting from a pinball title. That's either a good or bad thing, depending on your level of Tommy-esque wizardry. [Feb 2008, p.74]

    It's like reading through the wrong end of a pair of binoculars. [Apr 2009, p.76]

    Visually it's 15 years old. No thanks. [July 2009, p.77]

    • 68 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Limited appeal and completely lacking in decent variations. [Apr 2009, p.40]

    • 49 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A decent and briefly diverting 'boarder, but the full fat games are far superior, stuffed with content and hence better value for your money. [June 2009, p.72]

    It's good value if you just want to spend the afternoon mindlessly shooting cannon fodder. Don't expect anything different, though. [May 2009, p.77]

    Unremarkable. [Sept 2009, p.72]

    • 47 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Glitchy, hard to control, unimaginative, repetitive, frustrating, overpriced... Nobody except Tony Hawk himself seems to like it. [Jan 2010, p.73]

    Uninspired. [Apr 2010, p.74]

    Another joyless lump of registered trademarks designed with vulnerable kiddies in mind. [Winter 2009, p.63]
