    You'll get your money's worth if you put in the hours, but some would say that life's too short. [Dec 2008, p.73]

    • 68 Critic Score
    This is pretty good fun, with so-bad-it's-hilarious dialogue and cute bestiary, but the cannon fights are just a little too repetitive to stay interesting long. [Dec 2006, p.68]

    For the completist, a must-have. For the rest of us, an entertaining history lesson that's just about weathered the passage of years. [Apr 2007, p.49]

    Get the WiiWare game instead. [Dec 2011, p.70]

    • 70 Critic Score
    A game that doesn't know what it wants to be and ends up much less exciting than it should have been. Atmospheric but empty.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Solid enough to keep you playing for longer than you ought to, but the game looks and feels considerably cheaper than the price would suggest. [Aug 2012, p.103]

    A great Bleach 'thing' but it lacks the grace that holds the show's combat together. [June 2009, p.70]
    • Nintendo Gamer
    • 81 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Does little to stand out, but is deep and rewarding once you get the hang of it. [Nov 2011, p.76]

    • 67 Critic Score
    An utterly comprehensive yet soulless golf sim. Perhaps it's time the game was reworked instead of just adding another five courses and an idiot mode. [Dec 2008, p.55]

    Competent, joyless football by numbers. But if you don't already own a FIFA game of some description, or you're an Accrington fan, you'll get your money's worth. [Nov 2006, p.56]

    The fact that it's finishable in under four hours makes it just a weeny bit short. But for a side-on retro-fest, it does its job well enough. [June 2007, p.71]

    You can look at Wii Fit in two ways. On one hand it's a pretty comprehensive selection of exercises, cleanly presented and given a novel twist thanks to the board. Alternatively, you can see it as a series of lacklustre tasks that beautifully demonstrate the technical abilities of the board, decorated with the silly lifestyle trappings we're willing to overlook as long as Ninty keep delivering the proper gaming goods.

    Treads on its predecessor's toes too many times to impress in its wake. [May 2012, p.93]

    • 79 Metascore
    • 71 Critic Score
    Fast paced but maybe too much so. Mastery will require psychic powers or a great memory. [Issue#56, p.61]

    A clean, logical layout and superb handwriting recognition - we're sure crossword aficionados stateside are having themselves a grand old time. [Aug 2007, p.70]

    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Bit of a one-trick pony, but it's still a neat idea, well executed. [May 2010, p.73]

    • 79 Metascore
    • 59 Critic Score
    It's certainly not bad, but it lacks the strategy of Pullblox and the panic of Mario's Flip Switch Galaxies. [Feb 2012, p.106]

    • 78 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    This isn't as mind-spinningly enjoyable as we hoped. [Nov 2007, p.54]

    A perfectly acceptable pint-sized kart racer. [Mar 2010, p.58]

    Repetitive, bland and ultimately not very Goku. [Jan 2009, p.76]

    • 72 Critic Score
    An excellent RPG but a poor port. [Oct 2011, p.65]

    • 74 Critic Score
    A rather limp "WarioWare" is followed by a rather limp Wii Wario Land. Wazza's never looked better, but has rarely played so sensibly. Where's the attitude, you porker? [Nov 2008, p.52]
    • 77 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    There's certainly lots of it, just not that much to it. [July 2009, p.68]

    The locations are bright and luxurious. [June 2010, p.58]

    We were hoping for something more inventive, more memorable. [Dec 2011, p.56]

    A bit empty in places but worth a go if you enjoys yer killin'. [May 2007, p.42]

    Kirby's first outing puts the Wii game to shame - pity it's so crushed onscreen. [Christmas 2011, p.81]

    A bunch of so-so games. [June 2009, p.64]

    A short, sharp blast of pricey fun, like being shot in the head with a riot gun. [July 2010, p.76]

    Works as well as you could hope for on the dinky DS screen. [Oct 2010, p.53]
