    Very basic platform game with a promising lead character. Not actually awful but it's overpriced at 20 pounds and a little frustrating for younger players. [Christmas 2007, p.65]

    It looks like they've raided the N64 back catalogue for the lowest-res textures they could find and shoveled them into a Wii. [Christmas 2009, p.69]
