    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]

    One of the weaker GO games, Captain Sub lacks the smarts we've come to expect. [May 2011, p.75]

    Tentacles should stay where they belong: bothering anime schoolgirls. [July 2010, p.70]

    The game becomes the chore it aims to send up. [Nov 2011, p.75]

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

    • 45 Metascore

    A contradiction on wheels. [Nov 2011, p.75]

    Dull, dull, dull. [Jan 2008, p.64]

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

    • 40 Critic Score
    Taking a simple formula and injecting it with cruelty is rarely a good way to win new fans. Frustration, thy spirit animal is a digital frog.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Underwhelming in every single way. It's a weak fighter, made annoying by silly minigames and a story so messy it made our poor heads fall off. [Mar 2007, p.71]

    • 40 Critic Score
    The evidence trails are so insultingly simple to follow that even the Italian police couldn't bodge them. [Dec 2011, p.75]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 68 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Limited appeal and completely lacking in decent variations. [Apr 2009, p.40]

    Like the stick men themselves, Defend Your Castle is a little skinny but not unable to break through your defences. [Aug 2008, p.75]

    • 66 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    As a throwaway arcade game this is mildly entertaining, and nicely priced. [Apr 2011, p.78]

    • 40 Critic Score
    It looks and sounds good, but it's as shallow and frustrating as a conversation with Louie Spence. [Apr 2011, p.79]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 57 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    A disappointingly bland brain-teasing stew.[Feb 2011, p.74]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 49 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Frustrating and painful. [Apr 2008, p.66]

    • 40 Critic Score
    As far as gameplay goes, it's in the same vein as Singstar and co, with the significant difference being that it doesn't really work very well. [Issue#56, p.68]

    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Stupidly expensive. [June 2010, p.76]

    • 58 Metascore

    Not as good as it used to be. [Apr 2010, p.76]

    Flip-book frame rate, terrible visuals. [Apr 2012, p.101]

    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.

    This is more obscure torture device than game. [Oct 2010, p.60]

    This feels more like a WiiWare release. [Jan 2010, p.72]

    • 39 Critic Score
    So yawningly uneventful we were able to play it with one eye, while watching Flight of the Conchords with the other. A waste of disc. [Christmas 2007, p.67]

    A five-year-old PS2 game, eh? Terrific. [Aug 2010, p.73]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 50 Metascore
    • 39 Critic Score
    Poor AI, limps physics, forgettable track layouts and a general absence of excitement. [Christmas 2010, p.59]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 62 Metascore
    • 39 Critic Score
    A lazy addition to a series that belongs on DS anyway. [Apr 2009, p.70]
    • Nintendo Gamer

    • 39 Critic Score
    Runs so sluggishly. [May 2011, p.70]

    • 39 Critic Score
    Compared to this month's "Thrillville," EA Playground is severely lacking. Don't let the EA brand influence you - the kid in you will much prefer the theme park over the playground. [Christmas 2007, p.53]
